QTDDTOT - Questions that don't deserve their own thread

Last one is just about to fall off the board, so let's have a new one.

I'll start with mine
Is there anywhere I can get a nice modern 4:3 aspect ratio monitor that doesn't cost more than $150-$200? I've been trying so hard, but I'm unable to find a good 4:3 monitor around 20 inches in size.

So I was researching about what PSU I need for a GTX 960 and r9 380 when I found this video

there it says that both cards have the same system power comsumption, if it is that so why do I need at least 600W for a R9 while the 960 only needs 450W?

I guess I will buy a 960 anyways, just to be safe (I have a 3 years old 500w psu)

I'm trying to write a query in oracle SQL but can't get it to work

I have a table like

8 "FRENCH" 14

And I'd try to do the following : For each ID, get the 3 language with the biggest count, so for the example given above

7 "ENGLISH" 154

Hello /g/, I just finished reading an introduction to c++ however i feel it did not dive deep enough into the language. It did not cover vectors, algorithms, etc... it just covered arrays, recursion, objects, and a little bit of pointers. I'm starting to read an introduction to algorithms and an introduction to data structures. Is this the correct next step? should i read the c programming language? Other things the book did not cover that i see being used: typedef, public/private/static, and lists.

Doing a \\Name\Servershare can be done with any other computer on a network, as long as permissions and sharing settings are right. But generally, to set up a home server, you would need a couple good hard drives installed in a tower with a RAID card, go for hardware virtualization, if you want to run something like ESXI for instance. At that point, put your server OS on your flash drive, and RAID the hard drives however. For a home server check out freenas

Windows 10 will automatically update on machines that have updates automatically set to install, they count it as a recommended update. When your computer does the upgrade, it also gets a "digital entitlement", effectively meaning that motherboard gets Windows 10 for free, even after July 29th

I don't use oracle sql, I use MySQL / MsSQL / Firebird SQL.

Generally speaking you're going to want to do a select with the main table (FROM) being a subselect of just the ID's
(or create a temp table @tbl or #tbl and shove select distinct ID from language_table inside).

Then you're going to want to do an outer apply (or cte using row_number functionality). The outer apply will apply similarly to a left join, but you can write the subselect using TOP.

In the apply, since you're selecting top 3 and ordering by count, it will give you the results you want.

select [wanted items]
from [wanted id's]
outer apply [select top 3 order by count]

Which means you can run the upgrade, then downgrade, essentially future proofing your machine from having to pay for it in the future, however it is risky to upgrade, I have had countless, countless computers at work because of it.

>> No.54743766

Oh, yes i'm aware, i did not do the examples listed in the book, i applied what i learned to a a project i wanted to do. create a program to create an array of random integers using rand() and srand() with the seed being time from the ctime library. Then passing that array to functions using pointers and array size by reference depending on the function to have the array change size. The program can sort the array using quicksort (recursion) and then can export or import the array to a file. I guess i could learn to work with strings more. This is without using vectors, so i do not think its the optimal way of doing it, and i don't know if the data is safe because of the use of pointers. I'm still learning.

But another question: Will it have any problems on the system itself? Because one is a 2 year old HP laptop, and the new one is a Toshiba Satellite C55-C.

I have a system with several hard drives that I want to put into a pool and use as a storage area (vm images, plex, backups, etc.)

Previously, I've used BTRFS, but I've looked at zfs and am currently torn between the two.
But that's an issue for another time.

For storage pools, would you recommend having the OS stored in the pool, or outside?
For example,
2 hard drives raid1 with nothing but the OS, and the rest of the disks can be set up however (probably going to be raid60)
all hard drives set up raid60 with the host OS inside, and the data areas managed using quotas so the OS isn't starved of space.

There's about 12 drives in total (14 if the os drives were included), and double redundancy on both sides of a raid0 array was appealing.

easier and safer in the long run to keep the os on its own disks from your main storage pool.
my nas runs freebsd off a pair of mirrored usb disks with the storage pool consisting of:

6x 2tb drives in 3 mirrored vdevs
2x 5tb drives in 1 mirrored vdev

i use the machine for hosting backups/media and building/hosting custom package repos for my other freebsd boxes

if absolute storage space isn`t your biggest concern id consider going with a bunch of mirrors instead of raidz.
mirrors will give you a huge gain in read speed and make upgrading later so much easier and cheaper.
if you go with raidz you`ll have to replace all the drives in the pool with bigger drives before you can grow the pool.
with mirrors you can upgrade 2 or 3 at a time depending how deep you make the mirror.

Raid6 eats 2 drives, and the rest is storage. That being said, if I use 7 drives on each side, I should only lose 30% of my total capacity, while giving me the ability to lose 2 hard drives from any side and 4 hard drives in specific circumstances.

A few years ago when I enrolled at my university I configured my mail account in such a way that all mail that was sent to my university mail address was automatically forwarded to my personal Gmail address and deleted from the uni server.
Now I want to undo this (keep uni mail on the uni server) but I can't seem to find any settings for this either in the uni mail environment or in the Gmail settings. I'm pretty sure I set it up so Gmail fetches the uni mail via IMAP.

Being so used to paying out the nose for garbage, price to performance ratios and budgets are entirely foreign to them.

I haven't built a pc in 6 years and I'm out of the loop as to what's good in current technology and what isn't. It's time to get an all-new pc including monitor, PSU, case etc because I had to use a laptop exclusively for a couple of years.

Want a rig that will do anything I ask of it for the next 5 years. My aim is to play Witcher 3 on high settings at 60fps without oversampling and similar overkill, and run VMs emulating a recent computer from 5 years ago.

Is there any optimization I can do on this build?

Specifics I am looking for:
> Quad core CPU, around 3.5 GHz
> single GPU but powerful. Picked the 980 because I heard the 1080 is out so I expect price to drop.
> 16 GB RAM because 8+ GB for VM (rendering and shit)
> optical drive is a must (but cheap anyway), but no Bluray because Bluray is SHIT
> Monitor 24''+, 1080p, 144 Hz refresh rate
> dual boot Win7 (already have it) and GNU/Linux

Thanks in advance.

Have a hardware problem.

All USB port's have stopped working except one on a desktop PC that I got for repair.
The port's have stopped working after a USB keyboard was pulled out and later connected and found out that it isn't working.
4 ports are soldered to the motherboard, two are built in case and connected and one which is working is on the MMC/SD, SM/XD reader.

I have disconnected the two front USB port's and connect a USB card on the same connector, the card has two USB port's that are working correctly.
The back four USB port's are dead.

Now I tried uninstalling every driver and reinstalling it under device manager, doesn't work
Tried disabling and enabling every USB under device manager, doesn't work
Tried disabling Power management to USB under registry so Windows doesn't shut them down, doesn't work
Tried MS fixes from their page and everything is the same, they don't work.
Tried loading a Linux live CD the port's don't work.

In the above examples only the USB port on the MMC/SD, SM/XD is working and the one on an expansion card that was put instead of using the front USB port's which don't work.

What could I try next, my personal opinion is that they are dead since I've tried measuring the voltage with a multimeter they are all dead except for the USB card and the USB on the MMC/SD reader.

So I'm pretty much a retard. I was buying parts for my new build, and shortly after buying my PSU I realized that I had probably made a big mistake. My build using an R9 380, but I plan on buying an R9 480 once it's released.

What's the expected power draw from a 480 under load? Should I be concerned about my PSU being unable to provide enough juice?

I don't have the 380. I foolishly added it to the build list as a stand-in for the 480 to get a rough idea of the final cost. It didn't occur to me at the time that the power draw of the 480 could be huge compared the the 380.

I don't know anything about processor architecture but if Skylake is better and only costs $10 more I might as well huh.

The guide in the sticky said if you're around 450 W you shouldn't get a 500 W one so I got a larger one for that try.
