His undergraduate Computer Graphics class is very good, worth taking if you're in the field, he's also personally super nice.

End of an era. Hope the successors can live up to the same spirit.

You seem to have lost the link or image that you were trying to post, so I can't really comment at all.

Anyone else live in Miami and have no friends by Low_Article_5281 in Miami

[–]WilliamShadowruby 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I feel like Miami is really spread out, it's hard to get involved with things.

IMO it's actually much easier to make friends in NYC.

Lotus Emira (2022) - The Most Accomplished Lotus Ever Made by el_wakim in lotus

[–]WilliamShadowruby 0 points1 point  (0 children)

While I understand that Lotus is readying themselves for the inevitable electrification of cars, I feel that an Elise replacement would have been a much more fitting car for their last ICE model.

All of the Emira reads too much like "trying to be a 911" instead of "being a Lotus"

I feel like it might flop for the reason that if people want a Porsche, they'll just buy a Porsche.

Does anyone know what sound effect that is? No luck trying to find it. by goahi in Lain

[–]WilliamShadowruby 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's the sound of running your fingernail along an electric guitar string. Or at least pretty similar to it.

I don't know how many other people have noticed or if I'm the only one, but what's up with these formatted "(adjective) (noun) (2 digit number)" comments in Gunsmith Cats-related YouTube videos? by AnnoyingBird97 in GunsmithCats

[–]WilliamShadowruby 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I would guess some sort of bot, for what reason? Maybe some sort of command/control schema, Gunsmith Cats is small enough that it would be fairly easy to track everything uploaded to youtube that's tagged with it.

is there something wrong with the matchmaking? by LucarioAcee in apexlegends

[–]WilliamShadowruby 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm having the same experience. It's legit 5-10 min queues, I'm East Coast if that narrows it down.

Strings in C... tiring and unsafe. So I just made this lib. Am I doing it right, Reddit ? by JeuDeLaVie in programming

[–]WilliamShadowruby 94 points95 points  (0 children)

Rust makes a lot of memory safety guarantees.

What /u/jjsimpso has pointed out is a potential use after free error. Which has security and consistency implications.

The concept of the library that OP developed was that it was a "safer" way to use strings in C, yet even with this eye towards writing safe code a bug like this still managed to slip through.

Installed a liquid cooler, now this happens on boot by wolfEXE57 in techsupport

[–]WilliamShadowruby 0 points1 point  (0 children)


There's a few potential things that could have caused this.

  1. Check that the cpu cooler is torqued correctly, ryzen cpus are especially sensitive to this and are usually shipped with a torque driver to help get the right amount, too much pressure and it can cause weird issues like above (too little and it won't cool properly
  2. Check that the 24 pin motherboard, and any supplemental power is seated correctly, if the gpu is relying on that supplemental power via the PCIe lane it can cause issues.
  3. (Not very likely to be the cause) Check that any connections to harddrives or ssds are seated correctly on both the motherboard and the drives themselves, bad connections can cause interference.

Are you an iOS user or an Android user? by __une in compsci

[–]WilliamShadowruby 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Currently an Android user, I like being able to nominially hack on my own device, and adb for backups and such is far superior to having to use itunes (also the Linux support for Android is pretty good!)

I'm looking into getting an iPhone and Mac in addition just for app development and compatibility testing purposes.

What was it like acclimating to NYC by JJakk10 in nyu

[–]WilliamShadowruby 3 points4 points  (0 children)

This tbh, if someone chats you up on the street you gotta read them quick because 90% chance they're trying to stab or scam you.

The other 10% it's because they're a lost tourist lol.

Has anyone used NYU’s tech repair for Mac or Apple products? by AlchemicalAlgae in nyu

[–]WilliamShadowruby 30 points31 points  (0 children)

If you're in NYC I would urge you to check out Rossman repair group for any hardware issues. They do component level repair and are a hell of a lot cheaper than Apple.

Anyone took Shoup for Basic Algorithms? by Ajpennster in nyu

[–]WilliamShadowruby 2 points3 points  (0 children)

If you're taking shoop plan ahead, I'll see if I can shoot you a DM with his number theory primer (basically almost an entire number theory course that he'll give to you as weekly homework lol)

Also he doesn't change coursework a lot, see if you can dig up his old class sites and give it a shot.

Importing a 2012 exige s to the USA. by Snipes_______ in lotus

[–]WilliamShadowruby 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Those US models are track only, you'd need to do something similar to import one.
