ellipse isn't the best photographer it seems..
C6 looks like the cap on the usb input, idk maybe 0.1uf? it's not big enough especially with a long usb lead which these are shipped with. Its probably a good sign these work at all,
its easy to just stick a larger cap across it.
Id put probably a 2.2uf electrolytic across C6 and maybe .47uf monolithic across the dac (U2) or its nearby filter cap.

Would a proper JIT compilation implementation make this feasible? Even though src packages are based, waiting hours to install a program isn’t.
Sure if you want to quarter your CPU performance.
if you want to run Gentoo on a slow machine, you can either use distcc or set up a binhost, where a different machine compiles the packages and your slow machine only needs to install them, like a regular distro.

also it's generally a good idea to outgrow the impulse of wanting to run the very latest git-tip version of absolutely everything.

How do I into x86 assembly?

Some workloads can't be effectively optimized. Mainly parallel stuff but still. The AV1 reference encoder's hand-written assembly outperforms the higher level version by a lot. It's more than twice as fast AFAIK. Comes down to register allocation, cache management, etc. Well written assembly will usually outperform compiler results in a program's hot path. Particularly if latency is important.

It's also required in small amounts for osdev, compilers (obviously), threading libraries, etc.

Is this "bloated as fuck"-tier of memory usage? Is there anything else I can do to lower used memory even further?

Comparing a "virtual" resource to a phisical one makes no sense.
You waste nothing by using RAM, since it can be reused over time.
>I am wasting nothing by purposefully filling my bin because I can empty it
You are so fucking stupid, go ahead and empty all your RAM since you clearly have no use for it anyway.
Yes. This is literally what every operating system (including Linux) has done for decades now.
But no, a pack of stupid NEETs on an anonymous proctology imageboard know better, because smaller numbies in htop givez me mor l33t points.

Received an email telling me that someone from Vietnam signed-in my Opera Account (that i didn't even know i had). Already logged in the account, changed the password and deleted the account (will be fully deleted in 7 days). Also changed the passwords of all accounts that I used on Opera.

Is there anything else i should do? What kind of info could the hacker get from this account?

Op here. Didn't fell for phishing, googled the site and changed the password there. Also used a new password that I never used before.

The problem is i don't know what the Opera account recorded, could be something from my bookmarks to even passwords.

Brainlet here
So if my goal is to preserve as much privacy as possible, but still browse social media platforms (i know this is pretty much an oxymoron, but bear with me)
Would it be a good idea to use a dedicated phone, and if so would android or ios be preferred?
what the fuck are you even asking?
If you're using social media, all your activities are still gonna be stored on your account regardless of the devices you use. If you want to separate things for privacy, create a burner account instead and use it on a dedicated phone.
Don't use a phone.

I'm currently using Arch because I like having the latest and greatest but I recently found out about backports on Debian. Apparently it's a way to get newer software on Debian? No idea why I had never heard about this before! Do they work? Or will I just give myself a headache trying to make them work?
Just use Sid.
There is a reason why the Debian wiki warns you to not get the shiny new stuff syndrome. That being said, Flatpaks are the best way to get new shit on Debian Stable and flatpaks are based. But you're probably someone who enjoys watching Luke Smith on Jewtube so you wouldn't get it.
Check ahead of time whether what you want is being backported, not everything is. also backports are a best-effort thing that happens because some maintainer is interested in doing them, so you aren't really guaranteed that your more up-to-date version will stay that way. Also remember that backports are built from packages in testing, so when testing freezes for the next release (which is happening soon btw) backports stop rolling. If some package has problems that prevent it from moving from sid to testing, that'll also stop backport updates.

a lot of shiny new stuff isn't really worth having anyway desu

well, to start off the first thing I emailed al gore (check algore.com) was "dear al, we'll pick you up at the capitol, we heard your wife left you there"

flash forward after I sent trillions of emails on science and math

then one day before I took my pills, I heard morpheus over my left speaker. he asked "are you the one?" and I flat out said no because who the hell is this talking over my speaker

after about a minute of dialog, well, I own m0rph1ne.com

the scary thing is I was prescribed atarax (an anti anxiety pill) and when I took it, just that one time, I felt the matrix, it was like looking down the barrel of a gun

the bottle is gone now however, I have yet to fill in another rx

Use avidemux if you want to do hardcoded subtitles or anything else you're too afraid to do on the CLI. VP8 gets a pretty bad rap for not being able to perform good bitrate distribution or b-frames but you can have both of those with 2 pass.

why does /g/ shill linux for free?

Please go on and tell us how linux is "great" and how macOS "sucks"". I hope you linux shills type this response in a terminal-based web browser and have no less than 500mb RAM used on your 32 GB RAM thinkbad, otherwise you're a "noob" and should just install "oobuntoo". Who the fuck names their business-backed OS some shitty word nobody even knows how to pronounce. Oh right, those linux people have no taste, nor any sense. Every linux project undertaken fails, gets rebuked by same linux populace, or provides no actual advantage over macOS. Just capitulate already. Your shitty OS is literally a knock off of real UNIX aka macOS. Literally a parasite, that clings on the popularity of macOS because it has no personality, like the users of loonix.

List of lies told by loonix users include
>muh security (you don't have much in your bank account, you don't need it)
>muh privacy (you should stop hiding and come out of the closet)
>muh stability (go fix your life for stability, instead of your OS)
>muh customisation (you should get money so you can customize things in real life, like your appearance)
>muh free (if your time is worthless)
>muh cool factor (grow up)
>muh typing is faster than using a mouse (for loonix, since loonix users have no taste to design a good GUI, also linux can't do shit so yeah, why need a mouse)
>muh GIMP (ok bro, write Gimp on your resume and get dat chedda)
>muh freedom (you have less of it by restricting your choices in hardware, software, peripherals, and the rest of it just to please Stallman)

Don't you want to KNOW the smell, not just imagine it? Artists could attach their own personally crafted interpretation of what it would smell like, be it realistic or with a creative flair, adding another dimension to their work.

That's a pretty cute pose, ngl.
That'd have to be some neuralink-level spookery, since there would have to be some sort of database of signals sent to the brain when a molecule interacts with your olfactory sensors.
Then it would just be a matter of stimulating your smelling center in different ways depending on the simulated smell desired, via brain chip (or an extracranial stimulation method using magnetism)
