I can't really do anything but speculate, but GMR sensors seem like a decent fit for AC solutions since it's already unipolar and it might as well output a rectified waveform.

Thank you anyways.

last time I checked WD SSDs are pretty crap for the speed and cost per GB. the other guy is right on all points though, just make sure you get a decent boot SSD; NVMe or standard SATA. you can always upgrade later.

others = others - 110mb



Domain registration and hosting are still different services




What is 110mb? All I find is 110mb.com which is dead.

My mouse is basically fucked because someone smeared an unknown to modern science substance on it. I use it all the time and a rolling stone doesn't collect moss so therefore my mouse should be very clean.

This is the punishment for using a mouse in the firstplace. I don't know why you think you need a mouse, or microsoft windows for that matter, but you really don't. You're supposed to use they keyboard for everything.



While this is a legitimate use case, I don't think someone implement it that way because of this. If I did something like this, it would be so I could say, "see how cool my software is, it can make use of all the data and put them in the picture. Look how cool and intuitive my photos app works because of this! And it's still just jpeg! How cool is that? Sure, our rivals devices will probably display it with the wrong orientation because tgey don't even parse that data but who cares? Look at how cool my idea is"

THIS is more how software development works. Or someone put it in for debugging purposes and no one changed it.


Stop fucking your mouse anon



>photo editing programs that adds the person's name to the meta data

This. MS Paint adds your user name (if MS Account possibly your real name and surname) on JPG images. Don't know whether it injects data into PNGs.

If you make a screenshot, load it into GIMP and save it.


>What about taking a screenshot of it?

Totally unnecessary, since you can just clean the exif you stupid mongloid.





I was going to ask if the old trick of opening it in paint and making a slight edit of it worked, but >>1032926 seems to have blown out that option. Is there anything of mine saved to images posted by others that I saved off of here and then reposted?

its really hard on something like discord. theres no official logging thing on it so you would have to make your own logger for it




You'll never find anything else. I ran a cheap board 2003-2008, once you get popular you're done. One, if not multiple, groups will bombard your board with illegal shit and the spooks come out and tell you you can avoid responsibility if you give them access to police. Entrapment or shakedown, but I presume this is what got Dredd Pirate locked up, trying to hide and avoid them from infiltrating.



If you're gonna do irc, use i2p because it has it built in. Less likely to make a mistake that way.

Does thinking about the existence of pic related freak you out? There you are, a normal person who seems to be pretty excited when a simple TCP server you construct works properly, only for that euphoria to be short lived when you see how insignificant it is compared to the scope of existing technology. It's like learning Markov chains only to feel small when you look at cutting edge ML research. The effort in engineering something like the B1 is so far out of your reach, it might as well have been designed by an alien civilization. Even if you started today, you'd probably never figure out everything you needed to learn in order to create one. That's true even for the genius who designed it in the first place, since he didn't start from square 1. I suppose what I'm trying to say, is that comprehending advanced technology is mind blowing.

I'm pretty sure you could make a rudimentary pencil by mixing coal power with some clay, baking it into a long rod, and making a wooden handle of sorts for it


you can't write a program to build a B1B or a SR71, you need designers with a very, very good sense of aerodynamics and geometry. these were made with little use of old computers as powerful as your graphic calculator, and rulers.

mechanics, design, steel working isn't something a computer programmer can do. It requires a lot of other senses, and if you think you are the best with coding, and have gigaflops of compute powers in your pocket, this technology is not comparable to like, building something that exist, raping the sound barrier multiple times and so on.

So let me resume this: you have little technology everywhere, while the NASA sent men on the Moon in the 60s when the most advanced tech you had in everybody's home was a turntable and a TV set.

you don't need highly skilled software developers or computers to fly to the Moon, you need men.



Yeah and I'm pretty sure your a faggot who doesn't get that a pencil is made of paint, wood, glue, graphite, rubber, and tin.

And the graphite of which is a long studied composition as it has to be of the proper hardness otherwise it simply won't write or will crumble into dust.

Also can you:

>extract rubber from natural sources and refine it into an eraser?

>mine and melt tin, and then form it into a small cylinder which will hold the eraser?

>create the proper graphite composition?

>create yellow paint?

>carve 2 pieces of wood into an ergonomic and symmetrical shape?

>create glue from a natural source which will maintain it's integrity over the course of it's useful life?

>create the necessary logistics to send all of these materials to one location for manufacture?

>also have the logistics in place to then package and ship these pencils to buyers?

And don't forget that you have to do all this on your own with no guidance or assistance of any kind from anyone.



I see your point, but I very much doubt early pencils were anywhere near that processed. I wish the nukes would fall already. It would probably be a lot of fun figuring out how to reinvent everything.



Early pencils were literally a stick of lead. Then they found graphite in England. It made a darker mark than lead which was nice, but it was also fragile. To combat this they wrapped it in string which you peeled away as you wrote. A while later the decided instead to stick the graphite rod in a piece of wood which was sturdier. You could definitely make a crude pencil no problem. The hardest part is the eraser which takes decently difficult chemistry, but it's not entirely necessary to the function of a pencil.

what are you doing on it if you need that much ram? mine has the 4gb it came with and it has always been more than enough for me


I LOVE BBC! (Big Black Computer)

- this post made by W530 gang



I had 8GB running in mine for a while, but it was unstable with Libreboot. Would occasionally get corruption of the display. Went back to 4GB and no issues. Probably just a bad stick of RAM, but it can work.

Would tell you what is currently in it, but it seems `dmidecode` doesn't report it in Libreboot.


Ive had an x220 as my only computer for 4 years and I’m hesitant to upgrade. If I bought a newer thinkpad model, what should I go for? T. Poor collegefag

I have a fuckhuge imageboard folder and had an idea the other day to make a system where I could expose my collection to the internet in a way that would allow other anons to download stuff and help organize it by submitting tickets to suggest changes (add, remove, move, rename).

So my question for you is this: Are there any existing solutions that I could set up that would accomplish this or would I need to cobble something together?

I use tag filenames so they are easier to find because some images fit in multiple directories and 100Gb is already too much to handle duplicates


and this



>but I'm skeptical that security is properly implemented.

It runs offline if needed, what are you worried about?

Also you can just not use a public tag repo.


You can mimic file/folders with tags, if for some reason you need those.


Hold on I've seen this exact thread before. OP check latter pages and see if the threads still up.



You're running Windows, anon. I'm not sure you're up to this.



Most git* services would take him down in like 6 days. It's a better idea to set up a VPS with a gitlab/gitea instance.

I'm tired of bein spied upon by botnet, i don't trust my current phone or any modern one (even modern "dumb phones")

So i was thinking about getting myself one of the legendary stainless steel Nokia 8800.

Until i heard about Librem 5, i'm really confused.

At $650 its definitely not cheap, do we even know what the specs will be ?, how can we be sure that it's safe ?

if it runs normal gnu/linux then it will support lots actually useful things. only things it wont support is proprietary android botnet apps but people that buy this probably dont want to install snapchat or other botnets so it should be ok.



Exactly, i'm looking forward to install Gentoo on it and use it like i used to with my old Pocket PC.



Of course. It'll be able to run all of the GNU tools like mv, sed, gcc, etcetera. The Librem 5 is more like what we (or at least I) expected 15 years ago as "pocket computers."

The thing is that it won't have any mainstream appeal and it will not have any mainstream app like WhatsApp. Which may be a problem depending on what OP is expecting.



why even get a botnet free phone if you are going to install such things on it



About the only alternative is to make a VoIP only phone. But then you have to use a sip trunking service, and the only such service I can find halfway decent is Twilio.

Anyone else know a good, private sip trunking service?

>free software is communism

>governments around the world add more restrictions regarding user freedom and do nothing but try to constrain people when doing code(see North Korea os)

How come communists try to appropriate free software and open source philosophy when they are actually the opposite? Are they that clueless about what they defend or are they just trying to pull as many retards as possible on, even if by lies and deceit? I mean, of course (((the ones behind communism))) are trying to do just that so that they can rule over, but even the would be retarded drone underclass are sinking that low? How come so many people seem to believe that there is a correlation between free software/open source and communism?

This shit is so retarded.

Even big time retards like Stallman seem to fall for this.

>three fucking patches to fix





whats a dbus and why does so many things depend on it? on my gentoo system something is always complaining that it cant connect to dbus but they do still work



Dbus is a high level messaging service to allow processes to communicate messages to one another. Without the Dbus service, programmers have to do significantly more work on their end to make processes to communicate messages.



i dont know anything that would need to do that. its just a forced dependency on most binary distros.



>i dont know anything that would need to do that.

Because you don't know much about software

No. Tox is a protocol. Trifa is an android IM using that protocol. qTox/uTox are the same shit just on desktop.


Why is tox no longer on the Ubuntu package repository?

Just download the qTox Appimage.



Nobody cared to package it for Ubuntu and go through the Ubuntu packaging process. You can put anything to the repository as long as you follow the process properly. Nobody has done this.

actually its only piracy if you take control of a ship in international waters without the authorization of the ships owner.



Communism VS Capitalism is a false dichotomy. In capitalism individual entities own the means of production and can conspire with each other and dictate the market. Free Software opposes this, so clearly that means that Free Software is communism because that's the opposite of capitalism, right? No, in communism the means of production are owned by a regulating body, everything is planned and coordinated by a central authority.

In reality Free Software is more like a form of primitivism. In a primitive society anyone could have a small patch of land or a hunting bow and do his thing (more or less of course). The only thing that might prevent you from being a hunter was your skill with the bow, not some arbitrary restrictions placed onto you by the system. Similarly, with Free Software you own your tools, you can see the source, you can change it, you can use the software in whichever way you see fit. Of course some people are better at certain tasks than others, so groups and teams will naturally form, but these groups can just as easily also break apart and still everyone retains all the software.


>the myth that floss is communism is not spread by communists or socialists but by retards in an efford to "discredit" floss.




>In reality Free Software is more like a form of primitivism.

I guess this is the best analogy for the whole "FLOSS as an economic system" I've heard.
