I'm starting Junior Sysadmin position in January, moving from webdev which I can't stand anymore after a couple of years.

I do realize though that sysadmin isn't a position that allows for a lot of growth, sure in 2 to 4 years I can learn a few skills and reach "Senior" level, but that's it, you reached the ceiling, it will never allow you to grow in the same way a good programmer could (no, webdev doesn't count).

I plan to do it for a few years meanwhile I study Industrial Electronics which is what I actually like.

The thing that's been holding me from updating firefox is the fact that past FF version 58 I can't use local html file as my new tab. Is there a workaround for this? I tried extension and stuff but all of them said that I cannot use local file as new tab.
It works just fine and I have it customized to be asthetically pleasing, thing that is impossible with Neofirefox or Chrome that look like literal normie garbage.

Do you use it for gaming? If not I doubt it'll feel slow anytime soon, I have an FX-6300 for daily computing purposes and it still does just fine.
We are fine. Even when Zen 2 comes out it will take years for the industry to catch up to our performance. There are people out there still running quite happy with their Dual core Pentiums.
Say that to AMD - they need to give it on-die memory. Even the fastest DDR4 is too slow for a GPU, especially when shared with the CPU. Even DDR5 will be too slow whenever it comes out.

Neat, I was generally wondering. I want to re-live the Athlon XP days.

What about the source code itself that is/was licensed under gpl going from open source to proprietary?
irrelevent. If you are simply shipping the gpl code as a standalone to your proporitary code, its still gpl'd and gpl excplictly staets this si allowed
But it would be a problem if the gpl code is integrated with the proprietary code right?
I guess the whole issue people had was the fact they switched from open source to proprietary
Assuming you hold the copyright to the entirety of the code, you're free to relicence it however you want.
But if you had external contributors who didn't explicitly give their copyright to you, then you're breaking THEIR copyright by relicensing it. It's taking mpv a shitload of effort to relicense their code from GPL to LGPL (for libmpv), and I don't even know if they're done yet.
This is the dangers of using gpl and why you chould avoid it, even more the most small personal projects.
Do not use gpl!

>linux allows you to change the root password without knowing it
nice security freetards
40 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
It really isn't. Without the GNU utilities, Linux would be nothing more than an empty shell.
wierd flex, but ok
Are you trying to protect the OS, or your data? If it's the data, just encrypt it, no OS can secure unencrypted data (just take the disc out lmao) and knowing the root password won't help accessing encrypted data at all.

If you're trying to protect the OS then just realise that someone with physical access can just fucking reinstall it to get rid of your root password (if the system partition is unencrypted, but if it is, then you don't get the issue from the OP).
That's only true for parts of it, other parts are proprietary blobs - that makes Linux as a whole non-free.
Blobs are not a part of the kernel, they are loaded dynamically.

It's just a matter of putting enough research into it so we can understand it eventually. If there's something you can't model, it just means our understanding of physics and biochemistry isn't advanced enough and we need to head in that direction first.
That's an unproven assumption
What's unproven? If we can't understand something, it just means we don't have enough information to understand it at the time, but it doesn't mean we won't be able to understand it as we progress with time.
That every phenomeneon within the universe can be understood and modelled

>I didn't like it when he called the cave diver a pedo though. Even if he is one the matter should have been settled out of the media spotlight. Plus, that submarine was never going to work and would probably just have caused more deaths.

This doesn't excuse him but:

- one of the leaders (divers) of the team specifically requested that SpaceX keep working on the sub - Musk posted the email on his Twitter
- the sub was tested in the cave and it did work
- Thai navy wanted it so spacex team left it in Thailand
- Unsworth inexplicably started insulting Musk out of nowhere, accused him of doing it for publicity (which is an absolutely foul thing to say) and said he should shove the sub up his arse.

That's why Musk called him a pedo. He shouldn't have, but it's not like he's the only one who did not behave correctly.
>accused him of doing it for publicity (which is an absolutely foul thing to say)
why? it's absolutely true
You know this how? The whole point is that you're not in Musk's head, so you can't know for sure, unless he admits to it himself or there is proof.

Otherwise it amounts to assuming the absolute worst about someone without any evidence to confirm your suspicions.
>The whole point is that you're not in Musk's head, so you can't know for sure, unless he admits to it himself or there is proof.

>You listed a bunch of arbitrary shit that has little to no relevance to the conversation.
The whole argument is about whether C is a good language. No matter what you believe while sitting in your basement, programming languages are ultimately used to make software. To achieve concrete goals. Considering that C is never the best to use, C is shit.

>You didn't have a larger argument. You had strawmen.
No. You're the one who said that C "allows you to do stuff that is very hard or impossible in other languages". I showed you that it isn't the case.
If you can't understand that, you truly are retarded.

>Within a single language, yes.

>And you have the audacity to question my intelligence?
Yes, all my examples are provably true because they rely on intrinsic properties of the languages. You instead are still blabbing mindless abstract statements like "C keeps brainlets away" and that it "opens up opportunities“ while it simply lacks features.
I'm not questioning your intelligence. I'm denying its existence.

>invented by a dumb nigger
Not sure where you got that idea from, I don't even know of any blacks that influenced early cyberpunk. Let's look at some of the most important people in cyberpunk.

Bruce Bethke was the one who coined the term 'cyberpunk' in his short story of the same name. He is white, and arguably intelligent as he has won a Philip K Dick award.

Philip K. Dick played a large part in creating the original cyberpunk aka proto-cyberpunk. Once again white, and definitely a smart man, as a lot of his works delved into deep philosophical topics.

William Gibson pioneered the idea of cyberpunk that you see in fiction that came after him. Surprise surprise, white. He has also written a plethora of stories that have won awards and been critically acclaimed.

Even if you don't consider their accomplishments to indicate intelligence that much, I have no doubts that all three of them are much more intelligent than you.
>there was a cybergoth and a furry hanging out together in bristol at a rave in a club a month ago
With those neon leg warmers I guess the cybergoths always had a furry streak.
>Not sure where you got that idea from, I don't even know of any blacks that influenced early cyberpunk.
Delany is cited at times, especially in relation to Dhalgren. I never read any of it, the blurb seemed a bit too far out from my taste.
How should I set up a raspberry pi to work as a sandbox?

I plan on running wireshark on it to capture network and USB packets. I know for optimum security I would have to make sure it is entirely disconnected from the internet or any other network. In that case I would literally need to inspect the packets by hand on the computer.

Would it be safe to connect to it using SSH? As in connect the pi to a computer with a TTL cable but don't let the pi use the computer's internet connection. I plan on using such a setup to transfer non-executable data files off of the pi such as wireshark capture files.
Not an expert but here are some of my thoughts:
- use your Pi and a terminal machine on a net with a third logger and nothing else
- leave no way for whatever evil is on the PI to escape to your internal net or the Internet at large
- use ssh but not ssh -CX in case the sandboxed evil in the Pi tries for use zero day holes in the huge attack surface that X11 represents.
