Post Your Office Space

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

Does anybody know of a good monitor or tv for 720p content? I'd really like a monitor that has EXACTLY 1280x720 pixels at a 1:1 Pixel Aspect Ratio. It seems impossible to find such a thing, just endless rows upon rows of 1366x768 shitters. I fucking hate scaling and it seems to me that trying to display a 1280x720 video stream on these is going to cause blurry scaling. If true 1280x720 devices don't exist, then does anybody know of at least a 1366x768 that would let me display pixel-to-pixel in the middle of the frame? Really I'm mostly interested in something that would look good displaying a 1280x720p @ 30 hz signal from a PS3. It looks great but too small on my 20" 4:3 CRT and it looks like absolute ass scaled to 1080p on my bigg projector. I thought it would be a simple matter to just get a used 720p monitor for this purpose but they don't seem to exist in any quantity. The only display I have that is exactly 1280x720 is my GPD Win and it lacks an input port (in addition to being only 5 inches). >HDCRTs Wish I could find a nice one at around the 20"-24" ish size. I can find these all day on craigslist near me but they are absolutely fucking massive and I'm not looking for a 300 lb 36" monster at the moment. >The 24" and 32" Widescreen BVMs fucking epic, true multiscan with no lag but I don't have $10,000 and two weeks to burn driving to southern california and back for pickup and calibration. >PC CRTs Would be happy with one of those big epic sony monitors but they're around $1000 last I checked, seems most of the deals are gone. Would be worth it at around that price but they don't do 15khz signals. >Plasma I've heard various good things about these, but don't know much about them. They rose to prominence then faded away at a time when I wasn't in the market for a new TV. These are fixel-pixel displays right? Are they actually true 1280x720? Are there any other scaling autists here? Please Respond.

Intel Vs. AMD

Building a new computer soon. I've been out of the market for a decade and much has changed. I've seen a lot of news about AMD overtaking Intel in the desktop processor market, but have never been an AMD fan. I am seriously considering AMD for my next build, but am concerned about processor heat, longevity, and linux compatibility. Intel will also release their new line of processors early next year, and I am tempted to wait for that. AMD has also been gunning for Nvidia, but currently does not have a superior graphics card. There is so much conflicting information online, and so many AMD fanboys it is difficult to find objective information on what to put in a build. I used to turn to YouTube for information, but so many channels appear to be bought and paid for. I am curious to hear what /g/'s consensus is on what to put in a new build. I plan to spend roughly 4k on the desktop and 1.5k on a high-res 200Hz monitor. I plan to use linux for my main OS and Windows for gaming and video editing. Also curious to hear about storage options. I'd like to use 2 or 4 M.2 SSDs for in pairs of RAID0 for the OS and 2 or 4 HDDs for backup. Anyone have a more effective/cost efficient setup? Appreciate your responses.

Phone OS Alternatives

Fuck every major phone OS but especially fuck jewgle and its 'open-source' android, 90% of which is preinstalled bloatware and spyware. Fuck having no possibility to do anything except push pre-existing buttons. Touch-screen devices are the epitome of walled-garden-style computers, their functionality intentionally reduced to a point where even a nigger can buy one and push all the buttons he likes without having to worry about fucking anything up. I've resigned to the fact that all smartphones are just spyware a long time ago, so I got used to just clenching my teeth like a good goy while jewgle fucked me in the ass with every app I couldn't uninstall and setting I couldn't change. But enough is enough, so I'm here to open a discussion about phone operating systems, so that others may read it and free themselves from nigger-tier techology. I'm looking for open-source linux, a bash terminal, and, as much as possible, avoiding any service provided by google nigger-kikes. Looking at ddg hits, articles on recommended OSs all strike me as clueless and written for monkeys, so I'm asking here: What OS does your smartphone run, how satisfactory is the functionality it offers?

Idea for a political game

it's a civilization game where you take charge of a small group of people at the beginning of time and try to raise it to a great civilization. the difference here is that you choose specific policies for you civilization, and the results of any set of policies are based upon how exactly how those sets of policies worked in the past. eventually, the player community will determine which policies are the best to use. everything is designed to be a 1:1 depiction of reality, as close as possible, even the way you take control of you initial population is also true to the way the first human societies were formed. there is also the distribution of genes among your people and the lifeforms around you, all of which are affected by your decisions as well, along with the environment, and each individual's genes determines their traits just as they would in real life. Genetic data is largely hidden from you until you have the tech to see it, and actually ask for that information to be determined for you. speaking of which, you can ask those under you to gather information, you also get updates on the visible affects of your policies on the people, though some of the less visible stuff must be actively looked into. you cannot directly choose the advancement of technology or culture like you do in sid mier's, nor do you directly instruct people to build structures (if you want a wall, you choose policies concerning border security, and a wall follows from that), people who are not politicians are the ones who do that, you are a political leader, not a scientist, engineer, architect, or artist, your power is strictly political in nature, only the ability of a real human leadership is given to you, though this means that you do not need to conduct research to discover political policies, you simply have all of them available to you from the beginning. on that note, you can choose from any political policy that has ever existed or from any political policy that had ever been proposed (the effects of these will need to be extrapolated from what is already known, or what is most likely). the game ignores things like how leaders are chosen, as you are leader for life, issues like parliament or democracy are not even mentioned. some of your policies also determine how you interact with the societies of the other players in the world with you, I mentioned "other players" because this game has no AI players in it, all societies you share Earth with are run by real people, each of which spawns in a random location on the Earth, with all the affects the locations will have on the society and it's people down the line. all players begin at the dawn of humanity and it's civilizations, just after mankind has occupied every continent and island (with the exception of naturally uninhabitable places like antarctica) so everyone starts out equal. the descriptions of events that occur are described to the player in such a way that they will know their causes, eventually a meta will form and people will learn to craft a political system that resembles the ideal. AI societies can emerge later on, as they from when groups pf people split off from those of the players, fr example america resulting from briton colonists who seceded. the game will update the effects of policies, environments, and their combinations, as new information becomes available, this is in order to keep the game as accurate to the facts as it can be. this updating system will operate on a wiki like basis, but one free of censorship and bias (meaning that anyone caught being offended, anti-white, anti-male, left-of-center, or even being centrist is removed immediately, in order to prevent them from taking over and subverting the whole thing), with set standards on evidence (such as statistics) and argumentation (such as a ban on the use of logical fallacies), we will constantly remind each other of the past takeovers our enemy has committed, some not even /pol/ related, such as the corruption of the SCP wiki, and ask offenders to compare and contrast their actions with those who played roles in the initial stages of other documented subversion events, just so actual shills will know that we know their playbook, and that they will be forced to distance themselves from things that occur in later stages, only for them to be banned for good when they eventually support the very thing they denounced. we will have people who see to it that conclusions follow from method/data, and that the methodology/evidence adheres to the standards they have to, and that the standards are kept constant for everything, etc. they re to police each other to see to it that their own biases don't creep into their judgments, even when those biases are those held by some version of /pol/. the goal is simple, to determine the most ideal form of society, and to have more people discover it on their own through experimentation. a simulation game like this makes it fun.

Woo, pays to make an offer! I even still got free shipping! D: Apparently it was the last one they had tho so they were probably just trying to get rid of it. I was about to trash the entire monitor too (since it's like a decade old). Didn't feel like soldering in new caps (especially since my soldering iron doesn't work very good). Plus it probably would have cost the same amount (if not more) for new caps. Granted it'll still probably burn out in 2 to 3 years, buuuut... I just need a dumpy second monitor to watch YouTube videos on while I'm doing other stuff, so it's not like it's some grand investment. For as often as capacitors fail (due to how cheap ass they're made) they really should start thinking about making them modular for quick/easy replacement... but then again I think maybe they do it on purpose... "planned obsolescence" and all like that. I think most of the caps are designed to fail at roughly the same time the warranty gives out.

Hi everyone! I have a question about image serving. I'm making a 4chan clone, and currently what I do is I download the image from the client, make thumbnails on the web server, and then I use rsync to send it to my "image server" which is just an Ubuntu box that serves a folder impartially. An issue (I think) is that I end up downloading the user's file twice. I download it once on the web server, and then again on the "image server."

I also have to make thumbnails, in which case I just use imagemagick. Currently, I make the thumbnails on the web server because I will likely have multiple instances of them running, it seems fitting to have harsher processes there. As a result, I also send the thumbnails and more to the "image server."

One issue I have is that I also have to manually delete files via rsync. While nginx is fast, if I were to soft delete a file in my database (the database contains basic file information like filename, format, date, and more), I wouldn't be able to forward the changes and prevent the box from serving the files. I depend on rsync to work, when I would prefer "checking" if a file is allowed to be shared before I send it to the client. Do you think it would be worth it to write up a REST api to ensure more control?

As you can see, there is no sync between the file system and the database, and this can result in me serving illegal content or for stale content to stack up and waste space.

Do you guys have any suggestions to how I can improve this architecture? Are there better ways to handle this? I'm going to have one instance of an "image server" and multiple instances of my web servers. I really don't want some random power outage to occur and end up serving illegal content unknowingly because I would have no way to sync my file system the database.

One solution I was thinking of was forwarding the request to a custom REST api that would communicate with the database and check if the files are safe to share. The only issue is that this doesn't solve the duplicate download....

Any advice would be helpful!

Video Editor Recommendations

Wut is your favorite video editor? I captured a two and a half hour stream today and I started to edit it in Adobe AfterEffects 2015 and... that was a mistake. I threw the initial edit into the render queue and... oh yeah, it only saves in lossless formats, which was gonna result in like an 800 gigabyte file... NO THANKS! So then I started poking around in Google searches and all I'm getting is this corporate con crap, like "here's a free* editor" ...but then you download the shit and it's all gimpy and retarded unless you fork over your credit card. Like... tha'fuck?! Isn't there like a modern version of VirtualDub? I did find this one program, MKVToolNix and it's really handy for messing around with remuxing and editing tracks and such, but it doesn't really have much in the way of editing ability. Same with XMedia Recode, it's a nice little conversion program, much better than that sloppy TVC crap... but uh... I need a decent editor! It doesn't have to be super complex either, I mean I don't need gawd damn 3D rendering 'n shit, I just want to splice clips and do simple editing WITH COMPLEX SETTINGS! I don't want the fucker messing around with the resolution, or using some default codec settings... simple editing... complex encoding... preferably freeware... does such a mythical beast exist?! D:

Good Holiday Tech Deals

Sooo... what did y'all get this Black Friday and Cyber Monday? I got two of these ripe little jobbies... https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B013HNYV8I/ Dump tier 4 TB drives for only $72 bucks, pretty sweet deal, especially considering they're not white label, refurbished crap. I've bought a lot of these drives before so I know the quality is pretty good overall. Don't ever get those cheap Toshiba drives though, they're consistently crappy. Real high failure rates and such. I also got a yearly subscription VPN from Ghost... or rather my mom got it for me. My mom kind of "red pilled" herself over the past year after watching various YouTubers and since they're always doing sponsored ads for VPNs she became convinced that everyone ~has~ to have one.

Q.T.D.D.T.O.T.

retarded question i know,but i want to run my computer off of ethernet so my isp piece of shit isn'ttrying to circumvent my security stuff, but we have a whole ethernet relay that goes from the main ethernet port to the modem to the tp link which splits it into 4 and it goes some other places. our main ethernet source only has two ports and the tv gets to hog one of them and everything else shares one main source. the tp link has 6 ethernet ports so two other things could connect to it, but what i want to know is if i use the ethernet from that will the isp router still be able to see my search stuff and mac addresses n shit? also questions that don't deserve their own threads because this question alone did nothing to even deserve it's own post.

Why does everybody who's anybody use irc if it's insecure?
>Even if the server itself encrypted the messages/uses SSL, it's a moot point: everyone can connect and read what you're saying unless you encrypted it on your end. IRC admins can read your private messages as well.

>The vast majority of servers I've visited also expose your IP Address to everyone unless you're behind a proxy or VPN, so there's no real anonymity. Even the ones that partially mask your IP will show part of where you are. For example: Random432342.hsd1.ca.comcast.net. While other servers will block everything, all IRCops/admins know the real IP you're connecting from. What's to stop them from cooperating with law enforcement?
