In Topic: How Do You Protect Your Eyes?

I've heard that if you have astigmatism light themes are beter or vica-versa. But there was a study on that topic, as far as I remember.

Interesting, I actually have astigmatism.

Make sure your screen isn't (too much) brighter than the surrounding environment.

Any environment where my screen can be brighter that the environment is not an environment I want to work in. I always max out my brightness and mostly work near a window/fully lit environment. Also, I like light themes. I know dark themes are way cooler, but I find light themes to be much less straining.


Would love to see some science backed stuff on this, but I'm too busy staring at my screen 12 hours a day :ph34r:.

I unfollowed from twitter for that reason. As I'm a frequent visitor of this site, it's a lot of duplicate info that's cluttering up the rest of my twitter feed. That doesn't mean the update rate is out of balance though, I'm just not the target audience and I'm fine with that.

In Topic: Your Preferred Os And Why

14 July 2016 - 04:57 AM

Windows 8.1 I guess? Been using that for a while, upgraded my PC at home to 10 for DX12 support, but I dislike the fact it's not as easy to select tiles with arrows keys as it was in 8. Also, the amount of settings on disabling the built-in spyware :|... USB headphone works slightly better on 10 though.


Sticking to windows because it's what I'm used to, but more importantly games and Visual Studio. Also, I feel it's more stable than Linux. There, I said it!

In Topic: Is there any reason to prefer procedural programming over OOP

19 June 2016 - 01:21 PM

Your examples aren't really procedural vs OOP. Also your first example does dynamic memory allocation while your second doesn't and honestly looks weird to me. It's hard to say something sensible about the pros and cons with short snippets of code. Here's Brian Will's channel where he rewrites reasonably sized programs from OOP to a procedural style. I'm not aware of anyone who does the opposite so it's one sided, but you can find some takeaways in there.


I'm actually running an experiment myself where I take on a more C style approach to programming and I have to say I'm very much liking it so far. I made a journal entry about it a while ago. One of the biggest advantages that I've personally noticed is that procedural code is much easier to read, but I'll get back on that once I'm further ahead in my journey.
