But WHY tho. Just have a bezel
Apple doesn't give a fuck if this isn't what users want. It wants to create a sensational scandal and be talked about everywhere and then have a visible mark so you can spot their product from the crowd. People who buy their products are beaten to submission like an abused wife, who thinks the beating only happens out of love.

>People who buy their products are beaten to submission like an abused wife
apple literally stopped selling their products here because of sanctions. so i never understood this argument. it was already rare if people owned apple products. now it's even rarer. do amerimutts really have apple cult or something, i thought it was meme and america was free country where people have free will

>can I disable the CPU botnet
lol no
actually some ASRock motherboards let you disable the PSP... its really obscure tho like i have a nice asrock board and i can't find the option but i disabled a bunch of shit and so maybe its off idfk
as for thinkpads idk much about newer ones but like with the advanced menu like you've added, at least on intel ones you can set the bit to disable it
>actually some ASRock motherboards let you (((disable))) the PSP
I don't think that's the case here.
It seems it may not actually be as simple as the Intel ones. And I'm apparently the 12th person ever to unlock the amd menu on one of these because there is absolutely no information on what you can even do and I'm grasping for ideas as to why I even did it.
Well aside from no wwan whitelist now and because I can, also with full TPM functionality unlike intelcucks
potentially, how hard is to remove bios password from T440p? Do I need those clippy things and dump the bios or what?

Brave search still seems pretty relevant, but we need some kind of opensource/decentralized search engine that doesn't just scrape google and bing. All we need is a method for storing and sorting sites and a big blacklist of news and stupid spam sites.

Please comment good sites worth archiving, good search engines, and places to find relevant based sites.

>ranking though
the irony
use yandex. it still spies on you like every search engine but atleast its not pozzed
many smaller sites are usually relevant and better sources of information than stupid news articles. Think about it. Do you want popular trash or nietche gold? Obviously the second. Search engines used to and should behave this way, but nowadays it seems like there is literally a whitelist to show up on search results.

Look up an innocuous term on google and cycle through the pages. No personal blogs, no small websites, nothing like that. You'll find 10-12 distinct websites which all belong to some big corporation no matter how deep you go. Maybe it's the companies chimping out on SEO or something. Any good search engine should circumvent this.

Do you pronounce it "data" or "data"?
34 replies and 5 images omitted. Click here to view.
It takes less effort to pronounce it "dahtuh" than it does to pronounce it "daytuh". I used to use the latter, but now I'm a dahtuh chad.
The aussies probably pronounce it "date'er," which is fine because if I knew an Aussie into tech, I'd "date'er" if you know what i mean.

Aussie cunts have a tendency to add an r sound at the end of words for no goddamn reason. Like whenever they say "no", it sounds a bit like "nawr"
reading this post, I don't know whether I would think less of you if you don't have a clue how IPA works, or if you do and you you actually pronounce the word this way

You know that it's 15A for a circuit right, an entire room
>commercial building
I'm sure most purpose-used computing centers do as well.

Not always, as codes and regulations and design limits(cost) change. A 20 amp circuit might run the accessory outlets to 2 or even 3 bedrooms. Not saying it's common or normal, but you should always check what breakers control which rooms/outlets/areas when you move to a new place, and update or totally replace the god knows how old breaker box layout card. Always.

I've seen businesses with 25 year old cards that are both semi-unreadable and outdated to the point of half the described layout being totally wrong. Oops I just reset some control logic for the boiler when I was turning off what was labelled as the ventilation and A/C system, when the boiler and boiler control were clearly written as Breaker 21, not breakers 19 and 17.
