Laptop for video editing and gaming

Hi all. I've been browsing here for a while now and narrowed my options down to two laptops at this point and looking for some advice:

I've narrowed it down to these two options due to the slim form factors as I'm still a student, and the budget range. They have the same processor, but the Legion has a 1050ti while the Asus has a 1060. I will be using the device for video editing (downsizing from 2.7k to 1080p), photo editing, and gaming. I also realize the colour accuracy is much greater on the Asus screen compared to the Lenovo screen from what I've heard.

For gaming I am mostly interested in Fallout 4 (modded), AC: Origins, Red Dead Redemption 2, and other upcoming open world titles. Looking to run these smoothly (~60 fps).

My question is, do you think this screen colour accuracy and upgrade to the 1060 is worth the $280 price difference? Or is the price to performance of this upgrade not worth it.

Thanks for any help!

Downloading from sourceware.org

How can I download the files on this page? Do I need to just download them one by one? Or can I somehow download the entire index of /pub/pthreads-win32/dll-latest?

Here is the website:

I'm stuck with project ideas.

Learn Programming - 3 hours 37 min ago

I am always really excited to get in front of my keyboard and start coding but in the end i won't have any ideas.Sure i can follow a book or a github page with listed projects but they don't feel as enjoyable/original. When i asked this question again they said to just automate what i do which is actually really boring(gaming,browsing tech related sub-reddits/webistes). So my question really is how can i come up with ideas?

[UK / £400] Laptop for Word and browsing online

  • Total budget and country of purchase: £400 | United Kingdom (Scotland)

  • Do you prefer a 2 in 1 form factor, good battery life or best specifications for the money? Pick or include any that apply. Battery life is wanted but would like to have a good level between the battery life and the specifications.

  • How important is weight and thinness to you? Weight

  • Which OS do you require? Windows, Mac, Chrome OS, Linux. Windows or Chrome OS

  • Do you have a preferred screen size? If indifferent, put N/A. Up to 15.6"

  • Are you doing any CAD/video editing/photo editing/gaming? List which programs/games you desire to run. No, mainly want to run Word, Excel and Chrome/Firefox for browsing and watching videos.

  • If you're gaming, do you have certain games you want to play? At what settings and FPS do you want? If gaming it will most likely be something like Sims, but don't intend to really play games on the laptop so this isn't too important.

  • Any specific requirements such as good keyboard, reliable build quality, touch-screen, finger-print reader, optical drive or good input devices (keyboard/touchpad)?

  • Leave any finishing thoughts here that you may feel are necessary and beneficial to the discussion. This is for my friends sister, she has looked at Chromebooks and likes them but isn't too sure on what she should get for her money however I think that they can't run exe files so maybe Windows would be best, any recommendations would be greatly appreciated as this is for her birthday. Many thanks in advance!

Suggestions on intermediate/begginer projects in Java

Learn Programming - 3 hours 38 min ago

I am a junior computer science student in college and I was interested on finding new ideas for projects since this year I do not have any classes that require us to code in Java and I do not want to loose the hang of it. On my first year I had a class which was introduction to coding were we learned Java from scratch all the way to oop and on my second year I had an algorithm class. Any suggestions on books/websites I could find some projects for my coding level? Should I learn a new coding language? Thank you in advance!

[WebDev] From 1st step to 2nd

Learn Programming - 4 hours 3 min ago

Hello, my wife wanted a website for our wedding and instead of buying a template I chose to learn how to make one. I am pretty happy with the result even if it’s the most basic sort of static website you can find.

But I got hooked and want to take it to the next level.

My next objective is to be able to add to my website a #member zone with user/psswd combination that lead to a private page with pictures of them (pictures that I probably have to « tag » before).

So what do I have to learn ? I learned basics of html and CSS, and I plan on learning mysql and php, is that correct ? What is needed to make my website a little more nice looking, JavaScript ?

And what do you think about Ruby on rails ? I looked around about Ruby and it seems fun, and may be intresting if at one time I want to switch from webdev to other dev like mobile app ?

Thanks

Help visualizing algorithms

Hi I just made this post to ask, how do you guys do to understand all those algorithms? I just struggle understanding what the pseudocode does and its very hard to try to make an image out of it. I feel like maybe Im not smart enough but I wanna understand and get better at being able to "see" what the code is actually doing and be able to replicate it. For example, I could not wrap around my head to understand the code in quicksort even after watching videos. Maybe Ill try again later but damn. Isnt there some math equation to make algorithms or something like that?

Need help creating two separate methods that accept a double value and return a String (Java).

Learn Programming - 4 hours 8 min ago

This is part of an assignment for my programming class... These are the exact instructions:

A method named formatTwoDecimals that will accept a double value of up to 15 digits and return a String containing that value rounded to exactly two decimal places. For example, formatTwoDecimals(34.2589) would return 34.26.

A method named formatNoDecimals that will accept a double value of up to 15 digits and return a String containing that value rounded to an integer, with no decimal point. For example, formatNoDecimals(34.6589) would return 35.

I've been trying to figure it out for hours but the closest I've gotten to it is the values that should be showing two decimal places only show one and the value that is supposed to be an integer is showing two decimal places. PLs send help.

Extruder skips when using Slic3r

3D printing news - 4 hours 17 min ago

I normally use Cura, however I wanted to try out Slic3r. So I got the latest Slic3r Prusa Edition, version 1.41.0 and started printing. My printer is a Prusa clone (Creality Ender 3), so I couldn't use a reference profile so I started with a blank config.

Normally, when printing with something sliced using Cura, everything runs smooth. So for good measure, I printed a 20x20 calibration cube using Cura, and subsequently printing the same model using Slic3r, with settings that I hope matches my Cura settings.

Unfortunately, the Slic3r model causes my extruder to skip/click/knock. It happens during laying down the skirt, it happens on outer sections and it happens on infills. Sometimes as often as 10-20 times a minute... My first slic3r model also had some heavy layer shifting, but I think this is due to acceleration control being disabled (I've since set it to 500, which seems to have helped with the layer shifting)

Does anyone have any ideas as to what is causing the extruder to click? I don't think it's a hardware issue, as it works completely fine with Cura - But I might be wrong!

As mentioned, the printer is Ender 3, completly stock except for 4 (chinese) TMC2208 modules.

My Slic3r config is here: https://pastebin.com/6F8BP2rE

And my cura profile is here: https://pastebin.com/ssWCBBYk

How can I generate random numbers in Java that are up to 512 digits long?

I have tried ThreadLocalRandom.current().nextLong, but it only goes up to 263, which is WAY too small.
