Well our school isn't exactly know it all tech.

 

Getting such a ranking is laughable.

 

Whatever, we have nice desktops for vid pro now. Graphics acceleration, etc etc.

Yay~ TI-nSpire!

Wait... *rubs eyes* ARE THOSE DEGREES???

That green fill in the angle sheet reminds me of my middle school years.

btw, sqrt(3)/1 * 1/1 = sqrt(3)

Nope, You can't do the stuff in tikz in MS office.

and I'm sure there are a ton of stuff I haven't even touched yet.

STIX fonts

linky linky?

 

I convert all radians to degrees.

 

Makes it easier for me.

You need to get used to radians bro, that's what they're going to make you do in college most likely.

post #72052 of 130101

I do use Radians

 

 

A lot.

 

That problem just had / required degrees.

 

I had to convert to degrees to use the formula

So should I go for the portable 1 TB model, or the desktop 2 TB model for $15 USD more? The hard drive speed is unlisted....but going by today's standards I'm going to guess it's 7200 RPM.

 

I have no idea what the differences are between desktop or portable in terms of hard drive failure. I was under the assumption that portable ones fail less since they're meant to be thrown around [a bit]. My 2 portable hard drives haven't had any problems in the last 5+ years I've had them.

It's a good thing I warned you beforehand. Quick sell them to me at an absurdedly low cost.

I don't know about engineering programs in Asia, but in Canada this sort of stuff doesn't appear until you do your engineering master's or Ph D thesis in graduate school. We CS students learn it early.

Did I mention I hate fakkuing maths?

Is it just tutoring for someone else?

I've been trying to move the direction of the thread into S&M, fetishes, and stalker etiquette, for quite a well now. Doesn't seem to be panning out.

 

Oh well there's always /pol/

Constructor Theory - David Deutsch

 

Abstract:

Constructor theory seeks to express all fundamental scientific theories in terms of a dichotomy between possible and impossible physical transformations - those that can be caused to happen and those that cannot. This is a departure from the prevailing conception of fundamental physics which is to predict what will happen from initial conditions and laws of motion. Several converging motivations for expecting constructor theory to be a fundamental branch of physics are discussed. Some principles of the theory are suggested and its potential for solving various problems and achieving various unifications is explored. These include providing a theory of information underlying classical and quantum information; generalising the theory of computation to include all physical transformations; unifying formal statements of conservation laws with the stronger operational ones (such as the ruling-out of perpetual motion machines); expressing the principles of testability and of the computability of nature (currently deemed methodological and metaphysical respectively) as laws of physics; allowing exact statements of emergent laws (such as the second law of thermodynamics); and expressing certain apparently anthropocentric attributes such as knowledge in physical terms.

Wait a second, dropped my pseudo-intellectualism hat.

Never make an ars out of yourself and assume.

 

Err...no.

What kind of drives does lacie use?

Get the desktop if you don't need to move it around.

can't tell if skype is messing with me or the computer can't catch up with 20 tabs and skype.... or if it's just a virus. Anyways, watching eva 3.0 streaming :> wooooo no camcord rip. Can enjoy the animation in its glory.

Integrating fakkingus is the absolute worst. The long-arsed solutions always look so dirty and abrasive.

 

That being said I really dislike logical deductions because I really suck at logical deduction. That would assume logicism of course, of which some may or may not feel to be an overgeneralization. 

 

I do however enjoy instating proper semantics, modeling well thought out, coherent systems, and systematically (how else?) organizing these systems.

 

Systems.

 

But I dislike historical/political context and would rather indulge in more abstract constructs. So the languages are out.

 

Then comes computing. A natural application of concepts I enjoy. And I am content.

 

...

 

Systems.

mind = blown. Neon Genesis Evangelion ending finally makes sense :>

Gizmodo reported a Samsung hard drive in the portable one. Yeah I probably won't move it around much, but having more desk space is always appreciated.
