which torrent should I put on as a featured torrent on HDB? length of current queue is about six weeks
Where do I find their weekly passphrase?
>Been here at least 8 weeks, has uploaded at least 500 torrents and 500 GB, ratio above 0.65.
Might as well put this much effort in starting my own fucking tracker instead
what is the thershold bitrate over which in a x264 video usually people do not see any difference?
I guess something around 3-4 Mb/s

how frequent does /g/ reinstalls their OS?
5 replies omitted. Click here to view.
I remember back when windows vista was in beta I would reinstall the OS from XP to Vista several times per day because I liked it back then (even though it crashed every 10 minutes) but I couldn't switch to it permanently because my PC was shit (P4, 1GB RAM) and I could not play even cs 1.6 on it. So I would go from XP to Vista and then couple of hours later back to XP and repeat that several times a day.
My nigga

I usually only reinstall whenever I replace the motherboard or sometimes if I'm putting in a new boot drive. OS upgrades are always a reinstall.
on my computer i almost never do it, i reinstall an os on my laptop a fuck ton of times per week since i enjoy fucking with it
Twice a year
t. OCD
Whenever it gets cluttered. So quite often actually. Lately ive got a really old macbook air as a present that is almost obsolete. I probably reinstalled every OSX Version about 20 times to figure out which ones the best.

*teleports behind your back*
what's with these blurry windows things lately?
It just looks out of place and stupid.
Maybe it wouldn't look that bad if it was only partially transparent or something.

The other thing that irks me it the filemanager's lack of visual separation of window frames.
Everything just floats.

Things like that doesn't just look ridiculous.
Tell me please that this scrollable pane can be scrolled by grabbing anywhere and scrolled by sliding mouse (like smartphones app).
If it's not and the only possible way is to grab this tiny slider then it's flat out shitty design.

I wonder when will people wake up and start telling all these app designers that theirs recent creations are a fucking joke.

it's not an attack at your person or your taste at all.

You don't need to use a dock with KDE. You can use the icon only taskbar, and place it on a panel that extends dynamically.
Besides that, the only dock I've ever used that worked well was Plank.

He only made the kernel, dummy. It by itself is useless.
I saw Linus at a grocery store in Surrey yesterday. I told him how cool it was to meet him in person, but I didn't want to be a douche and bother him and ask him for photos or anything.
He said, “Oh, like you’re doing now?”
I was taken aback, and all I could say was “Huh?” but he kept cutting me off and going “huh? huh? huh?” and closing his hand shut in front of my face. I walked away and continued with my shopping, and I heard him chuckle as I walked off. When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw him trying to walk out the doors with like fifteen Milky Ways in his hands without paying.
The girl at the counter was very nice about it and professional, and was like “Sir, you need to pay for those first.” At first he kept pretending to be tired and not hear her, but eventually turned back around and brought them to the counter.
When she took one of the bars and started scanning it multiple times, he stopped her and told her to scan them each individually “to prevent any electrical infetterence,” and then turned around and winked at me. I don’t even think that’s a word. After she scanned each bar and put them in a bag and started to say the price, he kept interrupting her by yawning really loudly.
Yes I use Linux+LARBS

Linux Distros are a social construct

is it possible to develop, or does there already exist a program for a computer or even on a phone itself that automatically detects the elevator music that plays when you are on hold at a call centre or being transfered, mutes it, then unmutes/notifies when you are actually talking to someone? A lot of phone services I use have exponentially long wait times, and this shit fucking annoys me, makes my ears bleed, and pisses off my roommates - its the same droning, sad, torturous, indigestible music on loop every 30 seconds for fucking 40 minutes. most call centres use the same music so that shit gets ingrained into your head. Ive had enough.
ezpz to build, maybe there's a niche for it.

a little signal processing, a little machine learning.

do it op.

I wouldn't see myself buying it so I wouldn't invest in it, but if you think there are more people out there, you should be able to hack out a prototype on a weekend.
I don't know squat about programming
If i did or when i do eventually, this'll be on the bucket list.

There are apps like gethuman
