Yah yoga actually does help but I just hate doing it. Theres no saunas here in flyover country. But I think setting and improper lifting has killed my back. It hurts most when I set too long...which is why I want a standing desk.

Standing is great as long as the desk is high enough. If you have the house space consider building a sauna. They're amazing. Especially in the winter when you have a harder time sweating.

Why are you still using Fedora? You don't want to be a fucking corporate guinea pig, right?

>>77921027
I used this yesterday and wanted to kill myself. This is shit for a desktop unless you build your software like in slackware. I tried to install openshot but dependencies weren't fulfilled not even with additional repos like rpmfusion. Battery life was shit, and acpi-call was not in the repos and I had to build it myself, which I will need to do every time kernel updates. Sure if I had set this up then I would be done for years to come. But I installed Ubuntu and immediately noticed an improvement in speed coming from Fedora and installing stuff from the repos is painless, without additional repos.
I could use Arch for the latest desktop packages, but who the fuck cares.

I got a FBI virus when downloading some stuff as a kid.

If you need a 2.5" SSD, I'd recommend a Crucial MX500 or WD Blue. Pretty much anything from a decent brand that has a DRAM cache is fine, but check reviews.

This is a tech board so I thought you guys might know TVs. I bought a Vizio M Series 2019 658 G1 back in March for $500. It's usually close to $750. Is this a good TV for Xbox series X?

Thank you. I don't know what vrr is honestly. I'll look it up. I feel the TV is bright enough but everyone says it's too dim at 600 nits max. Is that horrible? I notice when I watch the Netflix wait her with Dolby Vision is quite dim. I guess I should keep my living room dark. I kinda wish I got a TCL 6 series.

Man all that shit doesn't matter. Do you like working with tech? Do you like solving problems? Do you like figuring out how systems work? Then tech is for you. I personally love working in tech because I love to be challenged, let me know when you can build 5 POS systems from scratch, or when you can write 100k LOC that works well.

Not sure if this is a demoralization slide thread or not, but yea OP I agree. I realized I didn't want to stay in the industry any longer when Windows 10 and SAS became standard. While admittedly Win10 and SAS have some good aspects I just didn't want to be bothered anymore. Also, like you said your co-workers are mostly losers. I only knew a few cool guys in IT I'd regard as friends. The lion's share are single guys obsessed with cape-shit.

I could go on all day, but I'm trying to be positive here. You should work a year each in a handful of different companies because having good co-workers and management makes all the difference in the world. If you're not happy after a year of employment at company X, then start scheduling interviews at company Y.

Good luck, and try to develop some anti-burnout mechanisms so you stay enthusiastic about your career choice.

I'm IT, not a software developer, so I could very well be missing something big with this. But with .NET being cross-platform, what's to stop someone making an FOSS LDAP (front end I guess) that's built on .NET. That way you could just export all of your objects from M$ AD and import them onto a Linux box running this FOSS AD and be able to basically keep all of your stuff as well as be able to take your powershell scripts with it.

With M$ shilling Azure hard and trying to force people in that direction (Like getting rid of the M$ server cert) I don't get why no one's done it or is working on it right now. I'd think some like Red Hat would've seen this opportunity and exploited it for their own gain since they can offer all the "professional support" BS management wets their panties about and we could finally move away from M$ more or less having a monopoly on LDAP.

Since eventually umatrix will be broken due to some Firefox updates, what's the best way of handling cookies? I have cookies set to autodelete when I close the tab, but uMatrix could also block cookies from leaving the browser. Can the same be achieved in uBlock somehow? Everything else (scripts, frames, ...) I have figured out.

We are laughing now as well.

1080Ti-megachads are laughing hard as hell. 2080Ti-chads who didn't panic are laughing too.

First-generation customer Ampere is a rushed beta-test for GDDR6X. The Quadro/Telsa versions use GDDR6 and consume a bit less power and are still keep up with their customer-tier brethren. In other words, Ampere never needed the GDDR6X in the first-place. There's a good chance that 3060 will be pretty good for its tier since it most likely be paired with GDDR6.

Why does every OS fucking suck?

Windows 10
Cons:
>lots of bullshit to remove post-install, even with LTSC
>"forced" updates (you can jump thru hoops to disable them, but i shouldn't *have* to jump through hoops to do that)
>UI looks kinda ugly and inconsistent
>the "I'm having an identity crisis and don't know if I want to be Win8 or Win7" start menu sucks
>Cygwin or WSL are basically prerequisites to getting real work done unless you're fully 100% immersed in the MS ecosystem and do nothing else
>never going away
Pros:
>flagship IDE is VS, which is okay, but it's pretty overengineered and performing basic tasks like migrating settings between versions can be more of a hassle than it has to be
>generally just works if you can put up with the micro$oftisms
>never going away

All your Windows 10 problems would go away were you to use their last sane operating system, 7. It's a bit too patch heavy though, all these fixes until now and in the future take a toll and some stuff like ryzen is crippled too. A shame 10 had to be so shit.
