How much ppi is optimal for an e-reader? I'm thinking of buying pic related used but it only has 167ppi. I don't plan on reading manga and other faggy shit, just books.

Any graphic designer or person of superior taste will tell you anything less than 300dpi is barbarism.
It's fine for books, but not so much for PDFs.
this; Im still waiting for desktop displays to catch up. Fuck retarded gamers who keep spouting 4k and such isnt necessary.

Is there an alternative or modded firmware for these kind of kindles?
The olders lower-ppi ones use anti-aliasing to make things look better than you'd think, but the newer high-ppi ones are still a not nicer. Also the newer panels have higher contrast.

Haha, poo intelloo
I kek'd, as I wondered how much code you've contributed to VirtualBox. Rest assured newb, Pacifica doesn't work that way.
Why not allocate all the available threads?
Because it's a waste. Two thread schedulers herding threads across the same (logical) cores. Best just to dedicate some to a VM: the host OS will see they're loaded, and assign threads to the unloaded cores, so it's (theoretically) completely hands-off.

>C-chan for wholesom handholding
Yeah it just tears your hand off because it's not null terminated.
Learning a programming language has nothing to do with programming.
Because it's traditional.
They are essentially "tech conservatives".
"Back in the days" things were optimized because they had to be, so C gets the credit for things being optimized since heavily optimized things are often written in C.

It's basically boomer programming for fedoras who think that if they use caveman tools, they will get caveman gains.

it's not like you're a bad content creator that uses ads like a financial crutch because your content sucks and no one would be willing to pay for it.

The top right setup was ugly back in 2003. Gotta admit I was a bit jealous when Apple released pic related around the same time
Commodore 64, the ultimate in simple design. Mmmmmmm.
But nearly every machine around that time was a one-piece. Of course, I subjectively agree with you (I cut my teeth on the '64), but objectively, it's a hard sell.
Early 00s cases were a mistake. I can hear the Linkin Park from here.

Gnome researchers are investigating on possibilities of changing looks of Gnome and its icons.

Many users of Gnome took 3rd party looks instead of Adwaita which was made by the genuine Gnome team. It may be the time to offer something else than Adwaita.

The makers of Gnome actually already have something in mind but it hasnt been published to wider public.

A Gnome update comes in March 2019. The new looks might be included by then but it is not a promise to have it so soon.

HOWEVER the new looks WILL appear somewhere in 2019, and this is a promise.

Who is responsible for saying "no" to that and creating current shit instead?
GTK means Gnome Tool Kit.

I believe it's time we branch out as /csg/ are getting sick of us, especially those with higher end gear, and /hpg/ despise us for being poorfags who settle for lesser quality audio than their fancy STAX.
Let's give a thread dedicated to IEM's a go. All prices, brands, countries, etc are welcome. Post reviews, give purchasing advice, etc.

Anyone care to suggest some cheap IEM (10/20€) and some decent ones (50+)?
I haven't had many fancy IEMs but the GR07 37 is pretty good with EQ. It's rather bassy without, slightly v-shaped I think.
RE-400 is also pretty good but boring at times, not much highs or lows either.

Is a Pixel 2 Xl worth buying new for $500 atm?
I'm stuck with OPO because of that curved screen corners meme, they are all horrible. I was ready to buy new top tier phone yesterday but just couldn't, they all look like toys.

You can buy the 128 GB variant of the Mi 8 for less than $400. And it comes with a Snapdragon 845, along with 2 GB of RAM extra (with 8 being available as well).
It seems like nobody likes the notch meme, they either hate it or just tolerate it. Why are they pushing it so hard?
