Windows vs Linux Anonymous 02/01/2020 (Sat) 10:15:05 No. 718 [Reply] [Last]
Base up, W10 is superior. Easier, more efficient, better support and compatibility, less hassle. But for the die hards, why is Linux better to you?

op is a fagget. the entire net runs on linux.the milky way runs on unix. everybody knows that.

>>718 I used to run Wingblows 8 which was okay-ish early on but later would update rape me, constantly crash, and lag from all the shitty spyware that I kept uninstalling but the OS would reinstall shit on boot like Skype and MSM. I'm not the most tech savy guy just competent enough to not be borderline retarded and Jewbuntu hasn't a hiccup once on any of my computers so far, infact it actually runs some of my games even better than Wingblows. I like the fact that if I delete a shitty bloatware program it stays deleted.\ Also Bill Gates is a glow in the dark globalist nigger. >>869 Based and practical user pilled.
apples and oranges, linux is objectively superior in most metrics, there are only a handful of applications that don't run on linux and then Windows is best for gaming, once those gaps close though there will be little reason for users to use Windows
Easier makes it so any chimp can use it. Only chads are smart enough to use Linux.
Is Mint a good starting OS? I want to blow outta Winblows. It used to be based, but Gates has now become a jew.

A retard in desperate need of help. Anonymous 10/29/2019 (Tue) 06:41:19 No. 496 [Reply]
I have two questions, /g/. Pidgin is as confuzzling as fuck. do i look like i know what host and port to connect to? i just what tor/privacy socks5 encryption backed up by sasl authentication and ssl use for gods sake! Also, any onion url archives you reccomend? one where you can just put in the name of a website and the onion url comes up? I'm tired of pecking around fuckfuckgo just so i can use ahmia or some shit.
(23.29 KB 256x256 Pidgin-icon.png)
Pidgin is retarded because it gives you options to host from multiple outdated protocols. At the end of the day i figured out IRC protocol is the easiest to setup, at least for me. Make sure your proxies or whatever you use to connect are working properly, ping them if you have to. Use a vpn, proxy, whatever the fuck you can outside of pidgin because i found myself leaking my ip even routing through proxies via pidgin, again, because its fucking retarded. Here's a shitty yt video to help you, its on Linux, but windows quite honestly is easier to set-up the off the record (not required btw just recommended) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZBq6Z7_7w6M (btw if you NEED to use a proxy, just connect to tor, and port 8080 or port 9050, i cant fucking remember)

Why aren't you using a microkernel hypervisor? Anonymous 04/20/2020 (Mon) 08:01:09 No. 873 [Reply] [Last]
SculptOS (Genode Framework+seL4) is a secure microkernel operating system that can easily be used to run virtual machines. It supports a variety of real hardware including Intel WLAN and iGPUs. It's less than 30MB and boots almost instantly, and even has a basic GUI built in. https://genode.org
2 posts omitted.
>>873 You literally give z e r o evidence to back up your claims.
Having a smaller kernel would certiantly make it faster, but how would that make it more "secure" and in what way? Not to mention you would have to have a much smaller library of call commands to mantain the kernel's micro status; thus reducing usability and compadability by alot. Which I guess would make it more "secure", but that's like saying you're secure against being robbed because you can't leave the house. Why not just use base Unix if we are going this dinosaur? Why even have a GUI? We can make it even "faster" without one.
>>1113 Qt has been ported and it offers some POSIX compatibility. What are you even talking about? >>966 Read the seL4 and Genode docs, smooth brain

My old monitor is nice and functional again so now I can watch video while I'm doing other things. Also handy for video editing and rendering. Had to move the fan on top of the printer tho... probably I should look for something smaller or more compact... or maybe get like one of those clippy fans and attach it it to one of the monitors. I should also get one of these dual monitor mounting jobbies... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07MC9YX63/ref=dp_cerb_3 Also need to get an extension cord for the microphone (seen under the riser there) so I can stick it over on the left hand side. I keep the graphics tablet underneath my regular mouse and mouse pad and then just move them to the side when I want to use it. I also have this pillow thing I put on the top of the desk and on the floor I have a big block of memory foam with a heating pad that I use in the winter time so it's nice and cozy, especially when I throw a blanket over the whole thing. Overall it's quite nice. I may be dirt poor... but at the very least I have a "corner office" surrounded by windows with scenic views. Always gotta look at the positives! :D
1080p master-race. Why do you have a fancy keyboard but a normal ass mouse and mouse pad? Don't tell me you robbed the Razer store.
>>755 It's not a fancy keyboard at all, it's one of those cheap Chinese knock-offs. I think it cost less than $10 bucks on Amazon. It doesn't have like programmable lights or anything, they're either always on or they can do a fade in/out effect. I did have a pretty fancy mouse, this one $50 wireless jobbie... but then the rubber side pieces sorta melted/disintegrated after about a year. After that I got this little grocery store check-out logitech jobbie for like $10 bucks. It's like a laptop mouse so it's super tiny, but I've pretty used to it over the past couple years. I can't really afford anything too fancy right now... hence the reason my second monitor is a repair job of a decade old Acer PoS. I gotta make due with what I got, sort of a "scavenger build" if you will.
>>754 What do you do for a living? U neeting while earning a few extra bugs with drawing stuff or professionally?
>>754 Really nice outdoor view. Looks relatively comfy, though could be more orderly. I have an AmazonBasics monitor arm pair similar to the one you linked. I like it, more space to put stuff underneath like keyboard when not typing. I like this thread. Might post my modest poorfag setup after I get some sleep. 16 is starting to get pretty comfy, nice to see some of the boards outside of /pol/ getting activity. Also, doesn't that fan make your eyes dry out?

This my shit. Everything you see here bar the chair I got for free or funded from the sales of free shit I got and resold. Mac mini (Late 2012) 2.3 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 2 x 1TB SSDs Intel HD Graphics 4000 1536 MB (no point using an eGPU over Thunderbolt 2) Got this for free from my last employer where I was contracting. I was disused in the corner along with an iMac that upgraded and gave to my mother. The RAM and SSD upgrades were paid for by selling old Lenovo ThinkPads this same company was getting rid of. MacBook Air (11-inch, Early 2015) 1.6 GHz Dual-Core Intel Core i5 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 Intel HD Graphics 6000 1536 MB Funded this purchase with he sale of used ThinkPads that I got for free... got it as used on Amazon.com, it was all dented and fucked up. Took it to an Apple store and low and behold it had the extended Apple Care on it and they replaced everything that was broken for free, took 2 days. iPad Pro (12.9-inch) (3rd generation) w/ Apple Pencil and keyboard case. Again, bought with the proceeds of sales.

Used Business Desktop Thread Anonymous 04/01/2020 (Wed) 01:58:46 No. 785 [Reply] [Last]
I made a bunch of posts on rikchan about old business desktops that I will copy here. you can get a machine with moderate performance at a very good price-to-performance ratio if you are okay with some of the tradeoffs I will discuss. Perhaps this information will be helpful to my fellow /g/tards.
23 posts and 16 images omitted.
>16 GiB ram >2 TB hard drive nice, that's worth the 80 on its own. and yeah there's something neat about realizing you can rescue old hardware with SSDs - I'd rather use an 8-year old CPU with an SSD boot drive than a modern CPU on spinning rust. You can get little PCIE cards that will add USB3 ports. I suppose if you are good at networking then saturating a wired gigabit link gives you ~100 MiB/s which is a fair bit better than the 35/15 MiB/sec that USB2 gives you in real-world bandwidth. although, I do notice that about 95% that I am trying to move big batches of files around at home it is either for games or music, none of which are necessarily essential. It's no problem pushing a ~100 KiB source tarball around even over usb2 or even wifi b.
>>862 I plan on upgrading to an i7 2600 soon and eventually 32GB RAM since that's unofficially supported on this model. Unfortunately this machine came with only 4GB DIMMs so I'll have to buy all new RAM. But they're probably compatible with the Core2 shitbox I use as a server that has 6GB right now so that'll get a nice upgrade most likely.
The USFF offerings are most interesting, like ThinkCentre Tiny. They're usually upgradeable, so you can have a really small desktop with a proper CPU and maxed with RAM and storage. Been thinking about getting one for a home server, that, a Rasbperry Pi, or ideally something custom so I can get rid of my shitty WD NAS.
I got some free computers from a local library since they were "broken"; but after doing some fixes they all worked save for one (which I scrapped for parts). I guess throwing them out is cheaper then paying for a compentant I.T guy. This happens more often than you would think, I got a free laptop through this method... all I did was open it up and reseat the fan and apply fresh thermal paste.
>>785 I can't imagine buying one of these... I get them for free all the time, but I work in I.T. I haven't paid for a computer in 20 years... ETA PRIME is always fucking with these and other low cost tech, good channel. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V1NpJj9rUMM

They most likely configured their server/s wrong leading to a data leak. This isn't the "Tor Network Being Hacked", that's silly. It's a hosting service who runs Tor web servers being "hacked". That's like saying "GoDaddy was hacked this means the entire Internet was hacked!" It's not the same.

I don't know what the fuck is happening but it's happened to me twice now. On Messenger, two images has been sent from my phone on two seperate occasions and I KNOW damn well I didn't send them. I don't have any screenshots because I deleted them out of panic. What the fuck is going on?
I'm assuming you're using a Samsung Phone?
I'm assuming you're using a Samsung phone; it's a bug with the program itself. There isn't much you can do execpt wait for Samsung to roll out a patch (unless you want to jail break your phone that is) Just go to: Settings -> Apps -> Samsung Message Permissions -> Storage And disable Message's permission to your photos. That will stop it for now, but you will have to turn it back on to send pictures yourself.

>>194 >building your own computer It pays off to have multiple macs. also, get an un pozzed cpu
>>424 The cheapest, shittiest WiFi chips are very cheap thanks to IoT cancer. You can buy Chigger "smart" bulbs from chink sites for less than $5.
>>194 Go to pawn shops and some computer shops looking for very old cheap cheap hardware. Collect as much of this shit as you can. Next, frankenstein them together into your very own 'botnet', operating on cloud computing principles. For internet access, you'll need to telescope public wifi. Use Qubes OS or some seL4 microkernel OS.

Nice, but why didn't you just build your own from the ground up? It would of been much cheaper, or was it a pre-built you've had for a while?
