Off Topic / I'm making a thing
« on: October 19, 2014, 11:03:20 AM »

Yes, I made this the way I did entirely due to evil intention.
Kneel before my overuse of "goto" in C++

Anyway, it's just a little text adventure that I'm working on because I'm trying to get into C++.
Someone told me not to use "goto", so I had to do it.

It's not finished, so right now if you get to a part of the game that doesn't actually exist yet, it will spit out a bunch of placeholders and ask if you want to restart or quit.

Off Topic / Help me build a PC

Our budget is $800. We don't need an operating system, my family primarily uses free Linux based stuff. We prefer a 1 TB HDD and a wireless network card. (the place where we are going to put it is far away from our router) The monitor/peripherals/etc. are not within the $800 budget.

We don't care how you do it, we just want it to be the best it can be for $800. We may buy Windows and use it for gaming in the future, but for now we're focusing on the hardware and just using an Ubuntu/Arch dual boot.

I recently forwarded the port 22 on my server.
I have password login turned off so you have to use a key to authenticate.
How likely is it for someone to break in with a brute force attack?
The key is a 2048 bit RSA key stored on my laptop and phone.

Off Topic / To people who know their HTML

Why does this not work.
Code: (index.html) [Select]
<!DOCTYPE html>
<link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="style.css"/>
<div id="main1">

Code: (style.css) [Select]
background: lightgray;
font-size: small;
font-family: verdana, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;
margin: 0px;
padding-left: 100px;
padding-right: 100px;

width = 200px;
align-self: center;
background-color: white;
padding: 100px;
margin: 0px;

When I open this up in a web browser, the div with the id "main1" is not affected at all by the stylesheet, but the background is.
The answer is probably really obvious, but I can't figure it out.

Anyone know of one? I may be interested depending on prices.

His budget range is $400-$500.
He has asked me for help picking one, so now I am asking you for help picking one.

Off Topic / Help me with Java.
« on: August 23, 2014, 05:50:25 PM »
Code: [Select]
import java.util.Scanner;

public class CoordSpace {
// Defining class "Point"
public static class Point {
int x;
int y;
int z;
String name;
// Creating void method called "translate" used to add to the x, y, and z variables
void translate(int px, int py, int pz) {
x += px;
y += py;
z += pz;
// Creating void method called "coordinates" used to print the Point's current location
void coordinates() {
String orderedTriple = "(" + x + ", " + y + ", " + z + ")";
// Defining method "InputLine"
public static void InputLine() {
// Prompting the user to input a command.
System.out.println("Please input command. Type 'help' to see a list of commands.");
// Assigning user input to string "command"
Scanner input = new Scanner(;
String command = input.nextLine();
if (command == "help") {
System.out.println("add -- Adds a point to the space.");
System.out.println("remove -- Removes a point from the space");
System.out.println("list -- Lists all points");
System.out.println("exit -- Exits the program");
} else if (command == "add") {
System.out.println("Please enter the name of the newly created point");
command = input.nextLine();
// PLACEHOLDER create a point and set variable name to the previous input
System.out.println("Please enter x axis coordinate for this point");
command = input.nextLine();
// PLACEHOLDER add an x coordinate to the previously mentioned point
System.out.println("Please enter y axis coordinate for this point");
command = input.nextLine();
// PLACEHOLDER add a y coordinate to the previously mentioned point
System.out.println("Please enter z axis coordinate for this point");
command = input.nextLine();
// PLACEHOLDER add a z coordinate to the previously mentioned point.
System.out.println("Your point has been added to the space");
} else {
System.out.println("Invalid command");
// Defining main method
public static void main(String[] args) {
// Creating new Point called "origin" that lies at the coordinates (0, 0, 0)
Point origin = new Point();
origin.x = 0;
origin.y = 0;
origin.z = 0; = "Origin";
Okay, so I made this little class called CoordSpace that is supposed to keep a database of points with three coordinates and a name. The problem that I'm having is that when I tested it, both the "help" and "add" commands return the "invalid command" output. But when I have it output the command variable to the console, it outputs the last input just like it should. I don't know what the problem is here, and I've been looking around the internet for a solution and haven't found anything.

I have a feeling that I'm just being stupid and forgot something important.

Off Topic / Is this laptop good for it's price?

My aunt just offered to get me a $600 computer. I want to know if this one is good.

Let's get this stuff going.

Off Topic / Recommend me a Windows 8 laptop.
« on: July 11, 2014, 04:47:35 PM »
My budget is $370.

Here is my current specs:
CPU: Genuine Intel CPU 575 @ 1.995GHz
RAM: 1937MB
Screen Size: 1280x800
HDD Size: 144.9GB

Touch screen is not necessary, but I would like to have one if it is an option. I won't be using it for gaming or anything like that, so it doesn't need to be some super high-end laptop or anything like that. I would also like a fairly large hard drive because I plan to dual boot with Arch Linux.

And nothing used. I have been using old hardware for years. My current laptop is very old and has several problems. (Faulty battery, cracked case on one side, etc.)

EDIT: It also needs to have a VGA output.

For the price at least? I plan to dual boot it with Arch Linux.
I also plan to get an external DVD/CD drive and a wireless mouse.

Off Topic / The UNIX Megathread -- New poll

    UNIX Megathread

    Because Linux is too narrow of a topic. Here, we discuss everything except windows.
    That includes smartphones and things.

    What is UNIX?

    Unix is an operating system that has been around for an incredibly long time and has been thestarting point for pretty much every major operating system besides Windows. The original version of Unix was popular in the 70s and 80s, and it was used mainly for acedemic purposes. It was developed by AT&T's Bell Labs and AT&T tried to commercialize it by giving the license for the OS to third party vendors who made different variants of Unix. Two of the most common variants were BSD (Berkley Software distribution from the University of California, Berkeley) and System V (From AT&T directly). Both were made from Version 7 Unix. Later in the 90s, BSD became independant of AT&T and various open-source BSD variants began to take shape. These later became the base for Mac OS X. Around the same time, the nearly-complete GNU operating system was made operational by the inclusion of the Linux kernel (made by Linus Torvalds) and lumped together under the label "GNU/Linux". GNU/Linux was written from scratch to avoid legal trouble. It is, however, compatible with a lot of the same software unmodified. On the other hand, BSD has Unix code in it, as it was derived from Unix 7.

    Since that time, Linux and BSD have been the base of many different operating systems such as Mac OS X, iOS, Google Chrome OS, Android OS, and many more.

    What operating systems are Unix-based or Unix-like?
    Note: I am not listing all there is. There is probably hundreds of thousands of Unix operating systems out there.

    If anyone would like something added to the list, please PM me.

    Before you ask "why not just bump the old thread" just listen. This thread isn't just for Desktop operating systems. If you have any kind of smartphone (except Windows) you can post about that here as well. This is sort of grouping in the old Linux megathread and grouping it in with lots of other things.[/list][/list]

    I don't get it. Why.

    Is this like the Wii U version of the 2DS?
