Everyone is entitled to their opinion but I very much believe that nixos is production ready. Compared to debian, it has more packages, it's more stable and it's actually reproducible in the miniscule chance you fuck it up. If debian isn't ready to be a daily driver than what is?

Just a warning to not fall for this garbage (Criptext). It glows really hard. I am 100% sure about this.
There's been an enormous amount of shilling for this crap recently, probably by the CEO himself since it's still a very small and new company.
Go on any /g/ archive and search for "criptext" and you'll see what I mean.
The same copy-pasted garbage that they take from their own website with buzzwords like "Signal Protocol", "Whitepaper" and other crap. Do not believe them. No regular user would write replies like this. They are shilling it here because a lot of /g/ users tend to care about their privacy, therefore it's the ideal audience for their (((service))).
They most likely store all your emails and sell them all to the highest bidder. E-mail is insecure by design no matter which service you use (unless you use something like PGP on top of course).
Check out non-email alternatives for example on privacytools.io if you want actually secure mailing (not gonna name any specific projects to avoid being called a shill as well, but there are very good alternatives that have already existed for many years, there is one in particular that I really like).
They are probably also the same people creating these threads recently asking "What's the best free email provider?" and then they just reply to their own threads to shill their botnet, I am not completely certain about this part specifically, but it does seem pretty likely that this is the case as well.
Their Twitter is just random retarded quotes so they can try to make themselves look smart, amazing and be like "woow look we really care about your privacy dood".

TL;DR:
Criptext is a Jewish botnet that's being heavily shilled on /g/ recently (huge shillwave) and glows in the dark.
Do not use under any circumstances, unless you love sucking the NSA's cocks.
Complete garbage. Tell others to not fall for it either.

Watch out for any and all shilling that takes place (not just Criptext-related shilling).

>Just look at some of these
I'm not seeing anything too suspicious, although I'm just scrolling through. If there's anything specific, then, by all means, point it out, as I may have missed it.
>Criptext now available on linux!! Try it out!" This does not seem like something a typical /g/ user would just post, but rather what a Criptext staff member would post.
I agree. Seems like an ad from them.

>You have a point, however they're using it (imo) in a very buzzwordy fashion, further raising my suspicions about it. It's very similar to how companies have been throwing around the word "Blockchain" randomly to get more investors.
Well, the whole reason OWS created the Signal Protocol was to deal with some of the issues with PGP, and other forms of encryption. I can see why encryption enthusiasts would use it in the way I'm seeing it used, but I can also see how you would see it and think "shill."

>That is correct, but only *after* Criptext servers have received the emails unencrypted, because email itself is insecure, meaning they can absolutely just store the unencrypted versions on their servers (which they probably do).
Well, it's open source, so feel free to review it. I'm not calling you a liar, but if they WERE doing that, then making it open source would be a death blow to the service.

>The only true email privacy is PGP and similar (or even better, avoiding email altogether).
There's no such thing as true privacy when dealing with any digital form of communication. That said, it is safe to say that the Signal Protocol is the best there is at the moment.

I've only mentioned anything related to Jews twice in my entire bigass blog post, one of which was only as a sort-of emphasis on how much of a botnet they probably are, without any real additional meaning of hating Jews or whatever. In the second one I've called out the CEO for being literally Jewish, but I've stated that this may or may not mean anything to you depending on whether you engage in that sort of belief (thinking that Jews are just greedy fucks n shit) or not. I am not saying that Criptext should be discarded literally only because the CEO has Jewish religious beliefs. I've provided a lot of other evidence still (well I wouldn't really call it evidence, since it doesn't really 100% prove anything, I'd just call it a list of pretty suspicious shit, there's probably some word in English for it but I can't think of it right now because I am so incredibly tired right now and should probably go to bed aaaaa).

Not who you were responding to, but I think you were looking to say "circumstantial evidence."

>Circumstantial evidence is evidence which strongly suggests something, but does not exactly prove it. Circumstantial evidence simply helps people draw inferences about a fact, or the events that took place.

If I'm going to lubricate either one, should I pick Gateron Inks or MX Blacks? The keyboard is just a plate mount, but I want a relatively heavy switch, with a deeper, less-annoying sound.
>>
>>72479846
The inks have a deeper sound apparently.
https://youtu.be/NxTxMe8Hr_g
Cream switches might be lower sounding than the inks but in the bit of searching I've done I couldn't find a direct comparison.
>>
>>72480013
Thanks, inks sound good. Just going to have to save up a bit more, if I decide to go that route. I don't have anything thick enough to lubricate creams, anyway.

I've looked at those. But from what I've seen, the T440s seem to have better specs and is also lighter which would be a plus if I will be carrying it around on my back for hours everyday.
The problem with laptops though is that the same models can have different specs. So I always thought the T440s would be better than the T440p
Care to give a tl;dr on the differences between T440p and T440s?

Mine was 238 eurobucks with i5, 4 gb ram, 320gb hdd, ips panel(aka not the crappy tn version).Overall condition is good with a minor dent over the ram slot cover and a small crak on the screen bezel which is barely visible. Extra ram was about 20 usd and i already had an ssd lying around. Definitely not cheap imho but i really wanted one. I got it from an independent seller who runs a pc shop so i could have a hands on experience with it. 1 year warranty.

Fellow LabVIEW programmer here. This seems like an obvious application for a formula node, provided you're not too concerned with performance. Using the native blocks runs faster, but can be confusing to read with something like this. If you're going to use them, you should break it down with subVIs.

In a past project where I had to do a ton of parallel data analysis in parallel with data acquisition, I found it more straightforward to use the built-in MATLAB interface so I could use that code and then pass the results back to LabVIEW.

Also, instead of those comments, I recommend labeling the individual blocks. If you ctrl+U for cleanup, those comments will get placed randomly. Rule of thumb with unattached comments is that that should be relevant to whatever container they are in, not necessarily to what they are close to.

For a simple program like that though, I do like the GUI. And at the end of the day, the code werks.
