Dear /g/entoomen -
This fine holiday shopping season I'm looking for a new phone for my mom. She's currently using my old Galaxy Nexus and it's getting quite long in the tooth. I'm thinking 2nd Gen Moto G. Are there any other devices I should consider?

Requirements:

> As cheap as possible w/o being shitty
> Supports LTE on T-Mobile.

What to do:
MAKE SURE IT'S LINED UP CORRECTLY

2. Lift the board a bit
3. Press with both thumbs while supporting the lifted part of the board with your hand
4. Do the opposite corner before the other two

You can tell that he wouldn't actually do it because his plan is awful.

He should leave the room before his roommate does, but not actually depart from the building. Then grab the laptop along with one of his own tech gadgets and walk out of the residence hall without getting spotted. He'll stow his own gadget somewhere and go about selling the laptop. When roommate returns, he finds shit missing. Anon then comes back having been "gone the whole time" to "find his own shit missing too." The delayed departure from the residence hall is because many are logged by keycard and he doesn't want to have his re-entry on the record. The really critical step here is to also avoid getting seen or caught on camera exiting a building he had already supposedly left.

Because Anon didn't mention any of this, I doubt he's a true cunt.

- Ruby (like most other scripting languages) does not require variables to be declared, as (let (x 123) ...) in Lisp or int x = 123 in C/C++. If you want a variable private to a block, you need to pick an unique variable name, holding the entire symbol table in your head. Ruby introduces new variables by just parsing their assignements, meaning "a = 1 if false; a" wont raise an error. All that means Ruby can't detect even a trivial typo - it will produce a program, which will continue working for hours until it reaches the typo. Local and global scopes are unintuitive. Certain operations (like regular expression operator) create implicit local variables for even more confusion.
- "def method_missing(*args)" is a blackhole, it makes language semantic overly cryptic. Debugging code that uses method_missing is painful: at best you get a NoMethodError on an object that you didn't expect, and at worst you get SystemStackError.
- Non-othogonal: {|bar| bar.foo}, proc {|bar| bar.foo}, lambda {|bar| bar.foo}, def baz(bar) bar.foo end - all copy the same functionality, where Lisp gets along with only `lambda`. Some Ruby's features duplicate each other: print "Hello", puts "Hello", $stdout<<"Hello", printf "Hello", p "Hello", write "Hello" and putc "Hello" -- all output text to stdout; there is also sprintf, which duplicates functionality of printf and string splicing. begin/do/then/end, {} and `:` also play role in bloating syntax, however, in some cases, precedence issues cause do/end and {} to act differently ({} binds more tightly than a do/end). More bloat comes from || and `or`, which serve the same purpose.

- Ruby as a language supports continuations via callcc keyword. Ruby's callcc is incredibly slow, implemented via stack copying. JRuby and IronRuby don't have continuations at all, and it's quite unlikely they will ever get them. There were also support breaches in mainline Ruby, where Ruby 1.9 has not supported continuations for a while. If you want your code to be portable, I'd suggest not using Ruby.
- Ruby was created "because there was no good scripting language that could handle Japanese text". Today it's mostly Rails hype and no outstanding feature, that makes the language, like the brevity of APL or simplicity and macros of Lisp. "There is some truth in the claim that Ruby doesn’t really give us anything that wasn’t there long ago in Lisp and Smalltalk, but they weren’t bad languages." -- Matthew Huntbach

Why do people get such cheap laptops? How can people seriously think such a cheap piece of shit is powerful?

The processor is laughable (shitty dual cores whose turbo frequency is pathetic)
A hard drive, so even if you OS uses the 8GB well to cache things, everything will feel horribly slow.
A shit screen with a useless touch screen feature that you'll find cool for 10 minutes before realizing that it's much less comfortable than the touchpad

5 hour battery life... considering the weak CPU, that's unacceptable. Such a voltage starved dual core piece of shit in a 15.6" laptop should last a LOT longer. Basically the entire day.
They didn't even mention the GPU, so you'll have a low end intel HD integrated one. That will take some of your ram because it doesn't have any and it will be slower than 7 years old dedicated GPUs.

If all you do is run guhnoo / loonix, write python scripts to download porn and always have a power outlet nearby, this is... semi-acceptable, but for people who haven't failed at life, this is unacceptable. You're much better off getting a chromebook. It will be much cheaper and offer you more or less the same

Yo /g/, got a stupid question about graphics cards as I'm new to PC gaming and not too familiar with the technical stuff.

Been looking at laptops and the highly rated graphics card is apparently NVIDIA, but obviously they're quite expensive. Laptops that are more in my preferable price range only run on Intel HD, which from what I've read is diabolical in comparison.

Is a NVIDIA graphics card worth the extra cost or is it just as good if you overclock an Intel HD and get an external graphics card as well? Or are there other options I could try which are better value for money?

Pic obviously unrelated but I thought it was cute. Thanks in advance.

Buy some fridge magnets and use them to gather the data off the magnet you used to wipe your HDD.
Generally speaking a fridge magnet will only be able to hold ~50mb of data, you may need a few!

Once you've done this, scatter the fridge magnets across the four corners of the Earth. If you wish to reassemble the data at a later date remember it can only be done during a solar eclipse on the winter solstice.
