have a switch connected to a router by old cat5e cables going across the house inside walls etc

the cables handle 1gbps just fine, but there is something iffy that causes the link to auto negotiate down to 100mbps after some time

this can be temporarily fixed by unplugging and replugging the cables in either end, but after a day or so its back to 100mbps link again

can i somehow force the cable to stay in 1gbps no matter what? there are no apparent options for turning off auto negotiate on either piece of hardware

Loonix Fact #209

Loonix has no "icon with thumbnail" support, which is present in Windows, even though the feature request has been around for over a decade.

>2020
>using an "OS" with no basic file display support

Why are you seriously using a Server OS with hacked-together parts for your desktop?

Loonix is cobbled together shit that only hobbyists, manchildren and NEETs use.

Why are you still listening to NEETs on /g/ and trying out their hacky "OS"?

>no graphics support
>bad display server

This thread is for the general discussion on gaming laptops, post yours and discuss them.

>Why a gaming laptop when a pc is better?
A gaming laptop has superior power compared to standard laptops, being only rivaled by business laptops while those lack the graphics capabilities of a gaming laptop. Gaming laptops have the mobility advantage over a pc.

>But I don't gayme
Read above

>You can't cool that thing + the battery life is shit
Not all gaming laptops suffer from poor cooling and most issues can be fixed with after market solutions like liquid metal or a quality thermal paste + a modest undervolt.
Battery life is very short during heavy use, but in standard use it will last longer when it's not using the gpu. These things are not meant for gaming on the go in a car for example so you'll almost always have a outlet near you when you want to do demanding tasks.

>Ryzen has proved itself the superior processor for gaming tasks
No it hasn't. Stop parroting YouTuber bs.
Intel has much better single thread performance, Intel machines always achieve higher fps on games (with equivalent processors ofc).
Don't get me wrong, I really like the new ryzen stuff, but for gaming in particular Intel is better no doubt.

those are pretty shit, a friend of mine got his replaced twice for failures within a week of use and just settled for a refund in the end, also if I recall correctly they only have 1 ram slot so no dual channel.

I got to thinking about the chans while programming today and some ideas started to accumulate. Right now, the most ridiculous bullshit plaguing a large amount of discourse on this underwater basket weaving family of websites is the rampant shilling and affiliated sockpuppetry. What is we developed a good guys cryptographic protocol that we managed from some secure root of multi-party consensus control, and had some way to issue cryptographic tokens to trusted users?
>These tokens could be included in the subject or first line of a post.
>Users could access some validation site that accepts the token and verifies it against the secure root of control.
>Passing this validation would mean that it is highly unlikely that the post was created by a shill.
>This approach would allow for independent validation irrespective of any site administration policies.
>It would be exceedingly hard to restrict such tokens on this site, they could be encoded in so many different ways - Image QR codes, stenographic images downloaded from the token issuance site, etc. Browser plugins could be developed to automatically validate the tokens.
>Tokens would expire after a certain narrow time frame (~48 hours) to prevent reuse attacks.
