Linux or Windows Anonymous 09/19/2020 (Sat) 10:19:58 No. 1230 [Reply] [Last]
I have Windows 7 on a laptop that I bought from a friend. I am wondering if I should keep it or install a Linux OS on it. I plan on using it to play DVDs and playing video games only. What should I do?
>>1230 You are better off using Linux Mint or just upgrade to windows 10.
No matter what you do you should always read the documentation before installation. While using linux type "man *programhere*" to find further instruction.

I was reading this https://github.com/leandromoreira/digital_video_introduction End up at: Colors, Luminance and our eyes Fuck me, I really fucking tried to see that the squares A and B was the same color, but could not do it. I ended up opening the image in Gimp and use the dropper.. shit seems same. Draw a line between A and B in the color and brain explode.
I remember one my first experiences with the internet was tekzoned's optical illusions collection. Those were the days.
>>614 Are those colors supposed to be different? They look the same.
The right cylinder is obviously darker and more blueish

Fairly to chan culture as a whole, spend most of my time on /pol/, know fuck all about tech, but am trying to branch out into linux and erase my digital footprint as much as possible, just to see if I can do it (never know when it might come in handy). Anyway my question is what linux variant is the most privacy forward/glownigger proof? I am willing to put the time in to learn it, but I need to know where to start. Sorry to post this here, I know I am way out of my depth.
>>1186 kali/tails
>>1186 >what linux variant is the most privacy forward/glownigger proof? Real answer: one that can't connect to the botnet you call the internet. Practical answer: the one you configure to be so. Useful answer: Tails. Otherwise download a few distros. See distrowatch.com for comparison between distros. Run them in a virtual machine (VM) after installing VirtualBox or Vmware. (VBox is easier for noobs like you) Trash them and crash them without affecting your main system. You can also burn the linux distribution image (a 'distro') to a DVD, insert the DVD and boot your computer ('running a live CD') so when you switch off, take your DVD out, and reboot your computer it is back to normal (as long as you obviously didnt select "install to disk" option while running the live distro!). In Linux: 1. Everything is a file. 2. Understand how to use the command line. 3. For help use the command: man -k a-search-term-you-want-help-with-here then man search-term-result-that-was-listed-in-the-last-command-here 4. Never copy-paste commands from others without knowing what they do.

>>1186 Install Gentoo, unironically. Search every new term with ddg or other non-botnet search engine. Watch this: https://invidiou.site/watch?v=Ag1AKIl_2GM Read, a lot. https://wiki.installgentoo.com/wiki/Programming_resources#God-tier_books Hack your jewdar for botnet. Do not ask anyone questions again, assume all (human) is botnet, including this post. Solve your problems on your own. Learn to look up info, filter info and find sources. Godspeed and see you on the other side, fucking spoonfed retard.
Tails is for faggots. Check out the official site. On the front page there is a statement that it includes proprietary shit to include more (((software}}} to work with. On top of that at least one person was imprisoned when Facebook hired a hacker team to find a zero day exploit in Tails.It uses gnome and systemdicks. Gnome for a fucking live distro. Tails just cannot be trusted.

Okay! How do I use this shit!? Anonymous 07/19/2020 (Sun) 23:26:18 No. 1171 [Reply] [Last]
A time ago my brother brought me a SMD Rework Station, to help me on repair our things. But, HOLY SHIT! WHY IS SO HARD?! Everytime I tried ended up with me burning the component or the board, or both. I tried to decrease the air or the temperature but the result end being the same. I know that I'm doing something wrong, but I don't know what is.

>>1172 How much time I need to remove a SMD? It doesn't hurt the component?
usually like 20-30 seconds if you have a good setup. if you don't have a good setup you should do a ghetto preheat by waving the gun around quickly all over the board. like I said, you want the board to be nice and warm (~70-80C) all over so you won't waste as much of your heat into the big copper pours on the inner layers. if you just jam the heat on full blast to a cold board you can end up with the top of the component scorched at ~400C while the solder is still only like 170C (SAC305 needs 220C-245C to melt) on the connections to the board since the heat just keeps bleeding away into the copper. you will learn to hate ground planes with a fiery passion, seriously fuck emc compliance and all that garbage, fuck controlled impedance, fuck dcr. components are typically packaged in some sort of plastic package. if you solder it fast enough you can get the terminations up to 220/245C while keeping the silicon on the inside under it's critical temperature. like 140-160C or some shit maybe, forget exactly at the moment and it varies per-component.
>>1171 Hi I work in a smartphone repair shop. Depending on the size of the board, sometimes you need to hold the hot air a FEW MINUTES on the board just to heat it up enough to melt the solder. and don't worry about overheating; if the solder isn't melted yet, that means the board hasn't even reached solder's melting point temperature. I suggest setting your hot air temperature around 350C, watching tutorials on youtube and PRACTICING on garbage dead PCBs.
>>1187 Thanks bro
