Bro, who are you replying to? Who is 'Ted?'

why not just use firefox with the telemetry disabled
ungoogled chromium is such a meme, why go through such a hassle for literally the same shit
firefox is literally the same shit as ungoogled chromium except you can actually install extensions in a non-shit way
there is no speed benefit to using chromium, or firefox, because they're the same shit, but with firefox you don't have to rely on a meme fork

like that arpanet jew says browsers due to their importance and potential vulnerability should be totally modular. built on a basic html interface that as a barebones browser wouldn't be able to send anything but get requests. everything else should require user downloading porting and enabling of extensions.

>>73631477
>Does it stop them from renaming existing options or introducing new ones?
They've literally never renamed settings to bypass the turboautists that bother with these customization options. Yes they add in new settings in some updates, usually bigger ones. That's why the ghacks user.js disables auto-updates so you can look at their git or the update notes or some other tech discussion that isn't filled with people like you and see what they added and then edit the user.js to include that. I am not saying that we should be thankful that Mozilla makes people jump through these hoops to keep their browser hardened, but you at least have that option. If you just fucking read the ghacks git's wiki they explain all this shit and give you a roadmap to keeping your settings where you want them and to prevent your browser ever talking with anything you don't want it to.
>Why do you recommend this shit, again?
I'm not recommending it. I'm telling you saying shit like "setting pocket.enable to false doesn't disable pocket" is uninformed. Pocket is "disabled" until you launch it. The setting is poorly named but you don't have a clue how it works nor what the setting actually does.

>They've literally never renamed settings to bypass the turboautists
They "deprecated" settings and changed names.
>Just don't update the largest fucking hole in your system
Or, you know, use another browser that doesn't pull that shit.
>I'm not recommending it
Good, because it sure seems like you do.
>They obscure shit and name features like "enable" that have nothing to do with actually enabling an option
Who would have guessed.
Fuck Mozilla and their jewish tricks.

If you're coming for programming, then you'd be able to at least afford a one bedroom apartment. Banks and startups are hiring. There ARE tech jobs in NYC, but it's not like SV, it's a lot more business/financial related.
>Is it a hassle and depressing shithole

My chinkshit LGA 775 mobo arrived in the mail today, and unsurprisingly, it has no option to manipulate the FSB in the BIOS. Is it possible to alter the bios for overclocking options, or install a custom BIOS? I'm sure someone here has experience with this thing.

Is this normal that if I want to install a program on Linux, I have to first download and install small packages and then small packages for those packages and then small packages for those packages' packages?
I just wanna install the newest version of FileZilla, because there's only an old one in the "Software manager". But to do that I need libfilezilla, wxWidgets, libidn, Nettle, etc. etc. and some other stuff for those. Am I doing something wrong or is this how you actually install stuff on Linux? If latter, how is this shit acceptable to install one program for hours and dealing with errors?

Nix has existed since 2003 yet why has it not overthrown Debian and Red Hat based distros?
>>
>>73630383
People are too stupid to use text based config files and functional languages to manage their system. The dumbness of the normie binary package managers lend themselves to more use because of how simpe and featureless they are.
Nix is being used by people that know what they're doing especially in the Devops world. Google uses nix for easy deployement with their nixery software and mozilla uses it to recrate perfectly reproducible builds for their software
I won't beat around the bush, Nix is very hard to use and has an insane learning curve, but it is easily the most powerful package manager out there right now. No wonder you average desktop user won't think to use it. They can barely get themselves to learn the few commands that come with apt.
And while nix can perfectly work as a drop in replacement for other package managers by just knowing the install and uninstall command, it's power is shown only if you go and learn it

I have a text file full of things with...

1234@1.2.3.4

...and I need to change it to...

1234x1.2.3.4@port.host

The numbers change, I need to swap the @ sign with an x, and append @port.host to the end.

I'm sure this is really easy, but I haven't touched grep or sed in literally like twenty years, and I just don't remember what I'm doing.
