I slightly modded ir_black. The concrete advantage of color schemes is that it's easier on the eyes to be able to see things in colors. Helps pick out and differentiate pieces of code easier. Open up a big C++ file in your editor and look at it. Then cat it. See the difference?

Well, they're fun, and to me they add a degree of comfort. I like that I can continue to customize them by specifying new keywords that I find important. Hell, sometimes I've made certain keywords bold and underlined just for the duration of a project, if they were important and I was missing them.

>According to the report of Science and Technology Daily, speaking of the competitiveness with foreign giants such as Intel, Hu Weiwu believes that Godson is to establish a new ecosystem, just like Apple, so no one asked about Apple's performance compared with Intel.

>Hu Weiwu said that in the past few years, Godson has made great progress in ecological construction. Now hundreds of enterprises and tens of thousands of scientific researchers form in the ecology of Godson.

>Data show that the Godson 3A2000 / 3B2000 is the latest upgrade of the Godson-3 series processors, the processor core is upgraded to a new generation of GS464E architecture, microstructure and technology level reached with Intel's IvyBridgy and AMD's Steamroller considerable level.

Why use more than 1 monitor when workspaces exist?

Some things I can think of:

- passively consuming media video while playing video games

- multi-monitor setup reduces the number of workspaces needed on tiling WM if lots of programs are opened

Anything else?

No problem. I was actually gonna list a bunch of things of my own, but realized that they were all already mentioned.

>I don't find 16:9 vertical monitors good at all.

Well, 16:9 is a shit aspect ratio anyways. The only reason it exists, from what I can tell, is muh movees. I miss 4:3 and basically anything else. Vertical 16:9 (or I suppose 9:16) is too narrow for modern GUIs, the toolbars take up too much horizontal space. Horizontal is too short for working on documents. It's a really bad ratio basically.

But still, looking at something like PDFs with "whole page" zoom on most monitors will produce a document that is too small. On a vertical monitor you can see about 1.3 pages at a readable size. To me that's a huge help. Wish they made monitors with saner aspect ratios but until then, at least being able to have one rotated is helpful.

>while it is faster it also only has minimal productivity gain

I'll concede this point. I haven't really seen evidence that it's "more productive". However it feels more comfy and less stressful, so in terms of subjective feeling I like it. And the subjective good feeling may in turn improve productivity. But mostly it's just more pleasant.

>spending additional $250+.

I bought both my monitors for $120 actually, years ago.

>I don't like having multiple monitors

Eh, it's everybody has their own preference. A lot of people do like it, but I wouldn't badger you about it if you've tried and didn't like it.

>mechanic keyboards

I'm on the fence about this. They sound kinda nice, but the enthusiasts always seem to overhype them.

Multi monitor setups are nice for programming and looking at references without having to switch to a different workspace.

For most purposes their not necessary, and it's probably a better idea to spend the money on one good monitor instead of two crappy ones.

While you can't simultaneously look at two screens at once, you also can't simulatenously look at two areas that are bigger than about 400x400 pixels at normal DPI and viewing distance. So whats the reason for having screens bigger than that? Just scroll around the screen retard! Just switch workspaces!

Fucking troglodyte, it's obviously much more comfortable to do the fastest, simplest action the human body is capable of, twitching the muscles inside of your eye, to look at something on a different screen, instead of having to input a command to switch the workspace.

You could even keep typing while reading something on the other screen, or watching a video on it. Not to mention games and other shit that can't rapidly be switched around.

modern hard drives have backdoored firmware

https://www.techpowerup.com/209925/nsa-hides-spying-backdoors-into-hard-drive-firmware

>According to Kaspersky, American cyber-surveillance agency, the NSA, is taking advantage of the centralization of hard-drive manufacturing to the US, by making WD and Seagate embed its spying back-doors straight into the hard-drive firmware, which lets the agency directly access raw data, agnostic of partition method (low-level format), file-system (high-level format), operating system, or even user access-level.

> Kaspersky claims that the new backdoor is perfect in design. Each time you turn your PC on, the system BIOS loads the firmware of all hardware components onto the system memory, even before the OS is booted. This is when the malware activates, gaining access to critical OS components, probably including network access and file-system. This makes HDD firmware the second most valuable real-estate for hackers, after system BIOS.

even full disk encryption won't save you, because backdoored firmware can just send a keylogger to your cpu when you boot your PC, and keylogger will steal the password that you enter to your encryption software bootloader

>how about non-american HDDs, Toshiba?

Toshiba should be fine. As for SSDs: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_solid-state_drive_manufacturers

Anything that isn't made in US, China, Korea or Taiwan should work. Specifically, Toshiba and the few European companies listed. I'd say vote with your wallet now and start buying Toshiba exclusively.

As for your first question, I'm not sure what you mean. According to Kaspersky it doesn't matter if you store your system or boot loader on a USB, or do whatever, as long as you have a Seagate/WD SATA device connected the device WILL load the back door. So the only option would be boot from a USB and never use hard drives. Unless you can connect them to a USB 2 port. I'm pretty sure DMA is used even if you'd connect the HDD after booting from USB.

"Speakeasy, Inc. was a broadband internet service provider and voice over IP carrier based in Seattle, Washington, United States. Their terms of service described liberal usage policies for home users allowing subscribers to run any number of servers[1] and allowing them to resell their connectivity to others through a service called "NetShare".[2] They received press coverage for their support of Linux and BSD-derivative operating systems, and were reportedly the first provider to offer a customized version of Mozilla Firefox to customers, in January 2005.[3] The company is now part of MegaPath Corporation."

Why do all the modern lightweight editors only have webdev themes? I wanted to like Atom, but looking through the themes available, I realized that they were all meant for web dev. The examples didn't even show examples for C or C++. Most of them were broken when trying to use them for C/C++. It also defaults to the disgusting webdev cancer of placing brackets on the same line as other text, and the only way to change this is to go into the config files and spend at least an hour making sure you change the auto complete for every single possible instance to place the bracket on a new line.

Is Code::Blocks the only decent IDE out there?

How? I pasted the playlist's url and it just stood there. And when I select a specific, non-generated playlist, it crashes.

I can't really help you since it's probably a situational thing, but you can use this thread to debug:

Enjoy being fully tracked by the botnet due to lack of proper protection options.

I found youtube-viewer in Manjaro repositories, it relies on youtube-dl. Pretty nice since it lets you see video descriptions or all videos by a particular author, in a particular playlist, etc. Between that and using a keybinding to play links from clipboard I can avoid youtube in-browser completely.
