Re: GCC errors with compiling C code.

JBI, the most interesting parts of the classes I did take was breaking down problems into algorithms, and one of my professors talked (frequently) about the idea that learning how to approach something at a high level was necessary to every programming language, and took us though various types of ...

Re: Thoughts on FiDef?

JBI, I think Sgt. Pepper was done with 4 tracks, possibly 8. Either way, there were many multiple mixdowns just to get to a 1 channel master (yes, Sgt. Pepper was designed by George Martin and the boys to be heard in mono). Yeah, they did multiple mixdowns due to limitations of the recording equipm...

Re: Thoughts on FiDef?

It reminds me of some of the arguments I've heard in favor of vinyl recording. Old style vinyl recorded the entire room, including the ambience of the music interacting within that space. Digital recording tends to record the individual instruments via individual mic sources and process out or mini...

Re: I sure wish I have a 40" 4K display...

I've been programming for 40+ years, and only the last ~2 years of that have been on a 4K display (and that only at work, where I didn't have to pay for it). It's a "nice to have", not a "need". My friend who coded his own game engine and does his own art and music and all that ...

It is whatever people want it to be. I find good 1440p monitors and kit much more affordable, and if I'm being honest I wouldn't be anywhere near this broke if I'd stuck with 1080p heh. If I ever need new kit again I'm definitely downgrading what I consider affordable. At this point, I think it'll ...

One thing I've noticed about 4K TVs from reading the reviews is that seems it is easier to find TVs with fairly decent text display(for a TV) then it is for 1080p TVs.

1080p panels are probably becoming a race to the bottom at this point.
