This seems inappropriate, right? At least give me a few days to get up to speed.

I've been putting my life on hold till the day I can get a new computer because I'm using this outdated piece of shit PC that's falling apart and still running windows 7. However I can't get a job and wanting to figure out ways to make money online like mTurk, etc. But afraid of the security risks with this PC am I just being a paranoid autistic dumbass? Or am I in the right to be fearful with my situation? I can't afford a new PC with no job and especially with the prices today thanks to "buttcoin". I just want to try to get something done already instead of sitting here feeling like I'm wasting my life away.

Y- You told me /g/oogle was evil...

Wasted CPU potential

It's a shame that such boosts are nearly impossible to acquire with binary distributions unless dispatching is used. The latter is very rarely used and only by programmers that know how and when to use such instructions. GCC on the other hand seems to be doing a fine job with that.

Anyone have one? Are they worth? I have an older 2560x1440 27" Dell monitor that I'm considering upgrading from to an ultrawide or adding a 19" monitor to the right side.
