You can typically save at least a bit of money since you're not paying for the cost of assembly. Even if it were the same thing for the same price, it's so much more fun to build it yourself!

Just remember that if you plan on using windows you need to factor that into cost calculations if you're building it yourself.

Putting my list together I didn't even realize prices were inflated. Everything is cheaper than last time I went to build a PC (May 2018), when the market was still recovering from the crypto-miner rush. It will probably still be a bit until I buy the parts however so hopefully then we'll be good.

In the US. As I said the budget for the rig is 2k, so around 100 USD maybe? I don't mind spending a bit extra if need be. Something high quality and modular. I was looking at this one for 100 dollars and I'm sure it's at least ok since it's from Cooler Master but I'm not sure which ones are supposed to be high quality.

I mean, in what way am I wrong? First of all, I wouldn't want to live there, that's for sure. Obviously there are worst places such as North Korea. And they have a terrible history of human rights violations.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Tips for high School?"

  • 18 days ago

Don't date. Just don't. It's not worth it in high school, take that from a Senior who is 2 weeks from graduation. In high school, everyone is just pumped full of hormones and wants to mess around more than actually build a half-decent relationship. Not true 100% of the time, but it's best to just avoid it all together.

Forgot to mention this. I didn't date at all in high school. One of the best decisions I've made.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Tips for high School?"

I just finished high school today. My advice would be to remember that your mental health matters more than your grades. Obviously you should try hard to do the best you can, but if you can't take any more you just can't. Don't torture yourself just to raise a C to a B or an A, C's are fine (but when you can get B's and A's, do).

If a teacher won't check whether or not you do any given assignment, it's not an assignment, it's a suggestion. That doesn't mean not to do it though. If you need to practice before the next test then do it if you can (or if you just enjoy the work).

When coming into a test and there's something you know you won't remember, write that thing down in your phone earlier. Walking from your last class, stare at this thing on your phone, constantly repeating it to yourself in your head. Take your seat and wait for the bell to ring, still reading it in your head. Once the bell rings, put your phone away of course, still repeating it in your head, it shouldn't be hard by this point. When you get the test write it on the top (the teacher won't care).

I just think of something cool and name it after that. When I built my PC I had been thinking about 4-dimensional spaces earlier in the day, so I named the computer "The 4th Dimension." I feel like that's sufficiently cool. Now all of my computers will probably be named after theoretical physics.

I drink 2 or 3 cups most days, maybe more sometimes. I drink just about any coffee. My brother works at Starbucks and gets us a lot of free coffee beans that seem pretty good. I'm not really picky about it though.

As a side note, it's 5:47 PM and I'm almost done with my second cup of coffee this 'morning'. My sleep schedule has been murdered by quarantine!

Scientifically speaking, life starts at conception. Philosophically speaking it's harder, but I think it's better to be safe than sorry. When they are born? Well it seems absurd that one moment before being born they are not human. When they can survive on their own? They'd have to be at least at toddler, to truly survive without someone else. For the disabled it may be never. But surely that does not make them any less human?

If abortion is murder, which I contend that it is, then in some cases murder is legal. I'm sure Hitler didn't consider the holocaust to be murder since in his eyes they were all less than human. I wouldn't vote for Hitler no matter how strong his economy was.

I don't trade lives, the ends don't justify the means.

But it's not like I'm in favor of malnourishment or drone strikes against civilians (the latter being because I'm not an Obama supporter). I'm not trying to downplay the importance of everything else, but we can't just kill human babies, no matter the circumstance.

If the ends justify the means, perhaps there is nothing wrong with soylent green. After all the lives it saves from malnourishment might result in a net gain...

Me too! Technically I killed the Ender Chicken (I know, lol) but it was fun. I've still got a long way left to go in this modpack though. It's called stoneblock 2, if you want to try a new pack I highly recommend it.

You really think, BY FAR, the most important thing to do is ensure more unwanted babies are born and more womens lives are destroyed? That an overburdened and inefficient public childcare system be further strained? That is truly the top priority?

No. I think the most important thing is that murder is illegal. If you can't even make murder illegal why are you running for office? That's a total disqualification.

I like to think of myself as center-right, but a lot of people might consider me farther right than I think I am. But I hold moderate positions on some things like economics (I like the idea of UBI) and gun rights. To me, by far the most important issue is ending abortion.

The Electoral College...I don't like it really...I've never really formed a strong opinion on it. I don't know if the benefits outweigh the cons or not. Maybe if we had a smaller federal government and left more up to the state and local governments then we wouldn't have to worry about it so much.

One thing is for sure, I don't like "the USA’s voting system" because it's a crappy 2 party system. We need to implement ranked ballots, and probably a few other things too. I hate having to choose the lesser of 2 evils in every election. Both parties are bad, but I choose one because imo it's a lot less bad.

Ah yes the good old days, 11 days ago, when I was still having fun. Now I'm just bored to death. When the plague ends I'll probably read the Jedi Academy trilogy (which I've heard mixed reviews of but doesn't sound very good tbh) and work my way toward the Thrawn duology. After that, if I'm enjoying it I might keep going but probably not tbh since I've heard some of the books aren't that good...

Then I'll probably read some of the more recent Thrawn books. Then I want to read Plagueis and the Darth Bane Trilogy as I've heard those are good.

Some time I might go through a crap ton of Star Wars stuff all in canonical order, first Kotor, then the Darth Bane Trilogy, Episode 1, Plagueis, Episode II, TCW, Episode III, and so on all the way through at least the Thrawn Trilogy (not the Disney trilogy, which is what inspired me to read the true sequel trilogy).

Fallen Order was good, but I never really got into it. The gameplay is fun but doesn't hold a candlestick to Jedi Academy, let alone when its modded with Moviebattles II.

I didn't really like the story either. I was disappointed that you can't turn to the Dark Side.

I was glad to see them make a good game though. I'm also totally hyped for the new Lego Star Wars game.

You obviously need at least some experience. As for how much, well that depends on what you're trying to make. If you have at least a good understanding of the basics then I think you can try it.

Good first languages are Java and Python, imo.

(quotes from different comment)

What programming languages are most common and required for job HTML, javascript, python and what else?

It depends on what you're doing, but C++ and Java are what come to mind. I'm only a student though so I don't know too much about the professional world of coding.

You got training materials or links to learn? Thank you
