Hey guys, I recently started a computer science class in college and my networking teacher who is the head of the IT department wants us to impress him with the best personalization of our desktops.

> inb4 impress him with your computer programming skills as opposed to flashy images

No anons, No. The motto that he always repeats is that it's important to be "all rounded". He's seen lots of autist computer geeks who are geniuses at what they do but are pretty much mediocre/shit at nearly everything else in their life (social skills, organisation of themselves, writing CV's).

I would like to show off images that highlight an interest in tech along with high quality photography; so if I may ask you kindly to post your favorite images

> I would to the other chan but those fags banned me since June of this year and my shitty ISP hasn't renewed my "dynamic" I.P. address for 4 months.

personalization of the desktop doesn't sound like a assignment....

if you want to make it personal, you need to take the picture yourself. There is nothing special about a good quality pic from the web.

For offtopic, i second this guy -> >>16570
Offcourse i would choose the ugly powermachine instead of nice looking computer that barely even computes.

Physics as a subject has three areas to master. First theory, second notation, third is application. You got to get all three to pass and understand and they build on eachother. It seems you're having trouble with application. Start solving easy problems and work your way to harder ones.

I think I just realized that it would probably take the same amount of time to circumnavigate the Milky Way galaxy in a space shuttle as the galaxy has been around for.

Also probably about the same amount of time to reach the Andromeda galaxy assuming that it doesn't get to us first.

Low-key smart glasses with GPS? Anonymous 23/02/12(Sun)15:10 No. 18484 ID: aae5a9 [Reply]

Hi /sci/!

I’m looking for a pair of smart glasses that looks like normal glasses to use with contacts. (Pic is how I want to feel using them, not what too look like.) I want to enter a bunch of waypoints into a GPS and then have the glasses plot them out for me.

I’m looking for a system that can be used without any ”smart” phone at all. I want the whole thing to be totally offline. The only thing I want to receive is GPS data & send nothing out.

Yes. Airplane mode just changes the default operation so that radios are not used, until you turn them on explicitly. You can be in airplane mode with wifi and GPS, for example. But if you just want to purely receive GPS, you could run the phone without a SIM card and without wifi or bluetooth.

So if I want to go "off grid" and not fuck around with a custom Raspberry Pi, I should get a "burner phone", no? :-)

More evidence connecting Timaz to Sexy Cyborg Naomi Wu. This pair is using her "fame" to rip people off. They hide behind their army of White Knights and SJW feminists when anyone critiques her bullshit backstory and cry sexism instead of addressing the points made. Now they are trying to ruin people's careers. They are scumbags and the truth needs to be shared.

In this thread, user Timaz talks about his Up Plus 2 and Leapfrog Creatr



In this article, Wu talks about the same type of printer

Difference between instruments playing the same note Anonymous 17/11/30(Thu)16:21 No. 16585 ID: 864454 [Reply]

At the same pitch? I'm trying to create a piece of music from an advert since I cannot seem to pay anyone enough to recreate it as they fear copyright backlash as a piece of production music.

The original track uses several synthetic guitars



This is my reasonable attempt :

I'm an expert at the piano but unfortunately don't really know much about guitars and that's why despite me playing the same notes at the same pitch, it sounds almost entirely different.

It's not possible to explain it in analogy to sine waves, because instruments are not sine wave generators. If instruments were capable of producing perfect sine waves at consistent phases, frequencies, and amplitudes then yes, they would all sound the same.

Comparing an electric guitar to a piano:
1. Plucking a string causes it to vibrate differently vs. striking it. For a given pitch, this generates differently shaped "main waves", which itself gives the sound different harmonics. Compare the sound of a piano to that of a harpsichord. The harpsichord has more harmonics.
2. The guitar doesn't have a resonance chamber, nor do its strings vibrate the air directly. Instead it uses electromagnets to measure the distance of a piece of metal several thousand times per second. Because the strings vibrate perpendicularly to the pickups, this adds a non-linear distortion to the wave, which adds harmonics.
3. Certain maneuvers are possible in a guitar but impossible in a piano. For example, a piano is not capable of doing a proper glissando, because it can only produce notes at discrete ranges. A guitar is also able to do tremolo, which I think it's impossible with a piano.
4. Finally, different mechanisms of producing sound cause the attack, decay, sustain, and release phases to have different lengths, which also affects the "feel" of the sound.

i think some of your later notes are off
also it will sound slightly different if it's in the context of a chord or if there are other parts playing
i think i phrased that wrong
a phrase will sound different in terms of "mood" or "tone" (not tone as in timbre, etc) if it has accompanying notes
i think i phrased that wrong again
Also yes the timbre of an instrument and the harmonics/partials will effect how it is perceived
it probably shouldn't be so different that it sounds so wrong
try a different register, play higher
check your notes again
