I'd like some blank keycaps with a custom pattern, where do I search ?
There's no such thing as a custom budget, it's a money sinker.
WASD :^)
Are XDA keycaps even comfortable to use? From what I can tell they took DSA keycaps, then ironed out all the curvature on the top of the cap. I feel like they're more or less just glorified chiclet keycaps, but if I'm wrong I'd love to know.

The poster for the current OpenBSD version features tinfoil hats. That should tell you everything you need to know about how paranoid the devs are. It's interesting though because security isn't really something that comes first in most software, operating systems included. Linux can be made more safe by a bunch of hacks on top of the system but it isn't designed from the ground up to be secure. OpenBSD is, whether you think they succeed or not. If the devs consider a piece of software as insecure with unknown behavior, it won't get on the system. Which is why you won't get as much software on it, in addition to the somewhat small dev team.
>Why would someone want to use that?
Because it's the least brainlet friendly. Well, in reality it's not intended for practical use: it's more of a curiosity, and perhaps a learning experience. It's a good start for maintaining your own distro (which isn't a fork of another).
In practice, Gentoo would probably be a good least-brainlet-friendly distro that's actually practical for daily use.
>everyone spoonfeeding the brainlet
stop, if he can’t even use a search engine to answer his questions he won’t even be able to download and burn the installer ISO to a flash drive.
openbsd idea:
more features -> bigger program -> more places for bad code -> more likely to be exploited
dont add unneeded featured -> aforementioned problems don't arise

unfortunately many people are accustommed to the extra features not included

What's the ungoogled chromium version of firefox?
52 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
Don't be a fucking idiot. Browser vulnerabilities are malware vectors, and you want to be using the browser that is capable of pushing security updates in the least amount of time. You don't want to be stuck on some hacked up fork that is days or weeks late to a critical security vulnerability. This means sticking with Chrome, Chromium, or Firefox proper. Anybody who tells you different is wrong.
Firefox 28 master race
There are many options for the truly paranoid, but lets not forget that Chromium itself and even the "ungoogled" version still has a lot of Google way of doing things bundled in.

Firefox on the other hand is better from the start. If you object to a particular feature for whatever reasons (ie I hear people bitching about Pocket, but I really don't see why now that it is a non spying wholly owned subsidiary of Mozilla), you can disable it in Firefox without having to fork the damn thing. Most elements have a simple checkbox (ie telemetry, the kind of homepage you want to see etc..) and for those few that don't or you want more assurance for some reason, there's an about:config setting to enable or disable most everything. There's also the Developer Edition which has a different set of (actually useful) open source tools and whatnot and changes settings.

Regarding forks, there's a FSF version (icecat? iceweasel?) that strips out pretty much everything but then don't bitch that your Netflix or other media won't work if you watch streams that use those services etc. Waterfox...I think is still based on the "old", pre FF57 Quantum codebase right? So it uses the old style extensions not new webex etc... which means its pretty much outmoded, especially with new extension development and other features, if it can't use them as well. It was a big deal back when there was no easily available x64 firefox on Windows and prior to Quantum, but I am not sure I see the rationale now. I think PaleMoon is a separate thing (ie Goanna layout engine) now, but is also based on old legacy Firefox stuff exclusively. On Android there's Firefox Focus / Klar ( the EU version of Focus) which is meant for minimal "disposable link following with no history " use which is neat, alongside regular Firefox for Android.

Overall Firefox is "clean" from the start and you can disable anything you personally have a problem without someone having to hack a fork together
>with that config
what config you fucked up shizo

and ofc everyone who cares uses any user.js already
you think you're telling anything ne?
>What's the ungoogled chromium version of firefox?

BUT firefox on my PC churns the hard drive. Firefox with a few apps has so many writes to the hard drive that I don't dare use it on SSD (solid state drives).

Looking to buy a mini projector to /netflixandchill/ with the ugly hoes I bring home. I need it to be small enough to fit in my pocket, have enough battery for a 2hr movie, be able to charge while using and be in the price range of 200-300$. I dont mind low luminosity because ill be mainly using it in a dark room at night.
I've messed with these. You NEED the laser type or it will be blurry useless trash. Or you are getting a standard projector that's not fitting in your pocket.
thanks for the input. Those exceed my budget tho, i'll probably just wait a while before getting it if it comes to that. Any model in particular you recommend?
bump for interest
Mini projectors look like ass. Go big and don't go at all.

>I got really mad and smashed my phone
>screen isn't cracked but screen flickers and can't turn it on

How do I tell the insurance people?
>a) say i just dropped it but risk them saying "then why is it smashed?"
>b) run it over with my car to eliminate all proof of smashing?
c) admit you are an autistic shitter and buy a new phone
i don't have any money bitch
>i don't have any money bitch

So you want to claim off your insurance, which will increase your insurance, at the same time claiming you have no money, this is the true meaning of autism, just pay for it to be replaced, and don't be a sperg, or get a cheap phone, or get a job that pays decent
Dear anon: lying to insurance people is insurance fraud. Enjoy getting raped up the ass by Bubba in jail.

Julia? Hy? Crystal?
9 replies omitted. Click here to view.
what cool things you can do in schememe?

I'm not too familiar with the type of computations you encounter in that area, i mostly just work with numerical methods in QM. But if you manually implement algorithms then you'll likely gain signifficant speedups from the the julia JIT compiler. Granted, depending on your runtime it may not actually be worth learning a julia, as something like Numba (JIT compiler for python) can work just fine.
I have written an genetic programming algorithm and a simulated annealing algorithm and both were very fast, much closer to C++ speed than if I wrote it in R or Python. And it's easier to program in than R, Matlab, or Python in my opinion.
I think my GP implementation in julia was about half the speed of my equivalent C++ implementation, but I had spent at lot of time optimizing that C++ implementation while I spent not much time optimizing the Julia one. GP is R or Python is frankly too ridiculous to think of because of their slow speeds.
Can you post some recurses about GP? So far I want to learn it, but struggle to find anything

Do not know about the no-border, but for snapping just use the default Windows 10 Snap or a third-party window manager like Aquasnap.

What a shitty piece of advice. W10 snap doesn't snap automatically like mpv, and downloading some third party shit to make normal functionality work is retarded.

I'm the Director of Engineering at a major software company. When hiring, I always ask the candidates which Linux DE they prefer. If they say Gnome then I immediately know they're a brainlet who can't code, can't handle anything other than a tablet, and would probably fuck the company up with diversity initiatives.

Thank you Gnome for making my hiring decisions easier.
