I want to send my t420 to an ebay corebooter but I don't know what I should tell him -- should I get ordinary coreboot? Should I get seabios? Will seabios make it no longer uefi? What functionality will I lose?

its a modified 7.3.5 client with old models, so a T420 era will probably do alright under windows. if you're using windows a t440p should be the best older thinkpad for the job. i find retail runs like shit on linux with my t440p. TBC runs like a dream however but thats older code. you might struggle with most laptops on retail, perhaps ubuntu might do better (im using devuan)

Yeah, I have them. Exceptional iems, probably the best fiio made so far (price to perfomance ratio). For $100 you are getting er4-xr like sound signature and audio quality. Except there is no deep insertion and they are actually comfortable. Ergonomics are very good and isolation is good. The only weak points those have are shared between all single balanced armature iems.
It is recommended to use with dap or phone that has low impedance output, like with any iems, but for those especially due to 16Ohm impedance.

Trying to watch a spanish tv show in the uk but can't access it. I don't want to pay for a vpn.

Is there a way to use foreign internet without having to pay for it? I have tor browser installed, is there a way to configure it to access spanish internet?

How is the appeal of a robot that cleans your floors literally ever day not apparent to you?

Even if you vacuum twice a week, a bot will still keep your rooms more dust free overall.

I just found why my multithreaded python program was only being pegged to one core. Each thread needs to fight over the Global Interpretor Lock because only one thread can access the Interpetors objects/memory, which effectively makes your program singlethreaded.

Why the fuck would the developers put this in if it's not real!?

I knew I should of just wrote it in C.

The developers need to taken out back and beaten with a billy club, cause clearly their mamas didn't raise them right.

PROTIP: Stay the fuck away from this horrible steaming pile of shit they call Python.

If you disagree with me, you can go fuck your dad.

Python is good because it has libraries. But the problem is that that is literally the only thing that python has going for it. Other languages are simply better than python at everything else. For any real applications, people should use other languages but unfortunately there are a lot of people using python for what it is not good at.

Yeah it doesn't magically make a stock golden when a company decides to go to the blockchain anymore at least not that I've seen. Nice use of sites that have a main focus on crypto and extremely pro crypto bias as your evidence that blockchain remains popular and a hot topic outside of crypto.

We aren't getting daily investment focused sites giving blockchain news and the last actual news site was about Wal-Mart using blockchain but what kicked up their stock was the announcement of a clothing subscription service.

Blockchain is old news amigos

That's debatable. All the major payment providers blocks payments to many offenders or even maybe-offenders of laws that are unjust. Like sex workers, online poker players, donators to wikileaks etc, even us crypto traders in many cases.

What distro should someone who knows its way around Linux install?
I'm on Fedora currently, should I install CentOS since I can build perfectly everything I need for it? Gentoo? Slackware? Or should I just install the latest Ubuntu?
CentOS has my attention since I hate upgrading and adjusting for new settings often, I just want to setup once and leave it be. I can't even start to consider Arch because I've had xorg stop working after upgrading. It's just poorly maintained and doesn't even support partial upgrades (absolutely none security backports or just a flag for upgrade things needing security fixes). One of the shittiest distros for users of any kind.
I could consider Slackware since it's heavily shilled in linuxquestions.org

No because I just adopted a typing style that doesn't fuck my wrists like traditional "proper" methods do. Sure I'm moving my hands a bit but I've been doing it for so long that it isn't an issue and feels weird when I try not doing it.

No. I don't touch-type and don't do enought work on the computer to justify learning it. As a result my typing style is all over the place with my right hand often pressing keys on the left side of the keyboard. Splitting it would have a negative effect on my typing speed.

I did that until I started using a Microsoft ergonomic keyboard.
It sounds harder than it is, you need a few days to get used to it but your typing will improve a lot.
