/g/ i am suffering from severe information overload. I have so many books, papers, and essays that I have written or have read and taken notes on. But I've yet to find a good way to properly organize it.

I am willing to do anything to organize all this. It is driving me crazy. How do you guys maintain your libraries of books, notes, journals?? Do you digitize it all? Keep a physical plastic box with folders? Anons, please help me - I have information neurosis

If you do digitize it, where do you store it? I tried dropbox, but I ran out of memory before long. Any places with more memory? I would ideally be able to access this across multiple devices (computers)

Any software or books on dealing with this also? Should I use e-macs or something? I've never used that before and would appreciate any tutorial links on how to

a few things which aren't big complex things, but invaluable nonetheless
- tmux (terminal multiplexer)
- mosh (enhancements for ssh'ing on a roaming machine with high latency)
- fish (really comfy interactive shell)
- darkhttpd (much better temporary http file server than the one in python)
- ed (the standard text editor)
- fsearch (like Everything)
- gamemode (temporarily adjusts things for running a game)
- netcat (nearly always available for getting something from one place to another with zero setup)
- htop (tui task manager, the only one i use)
- parallel (make any shell loop parallel, can also distribute jobs to multiple remote machines using ssh)
- unclutter (hide the cursor when idle)

I mean, video switchers like you've got there don't come with touchscreens even in the current year. It's a pretty tried and true design
Most things that matter still have knobs.

>>72480011
imo touchscreens arn't that bad if they're appropriately used and even then they usually allow for secondary input options. And touchscreen phones are just a proven paradigm, it works because its a very space efficient implementation on a very small device

Then you have the whole touchscreen on a military naval vessel types of things where someone really needs to rethink their life

I noticed some VPN companies based in non-5/14/NNN eyes countries have servers in the US although they claim not to keep logs. I know it's mainly for people who want to access US only content on netflix and Hulu but how would log disclosures work for traffic on a US server? I assume the glowies can spy on the server themselves?, Would whoever the VPN company rents from be obligated to keep logs and turn them over to the glows, or how does this work? Let's say somehow the VPN company also owns the server in the US. Would they then be obligated to keep and turn over logs just for that 1 server?

How am I suppose to trust an linux-based (((secure))) os that
>does not contribute upstream
Weird for a security-oriented linux distro, the asses at grsec try to do things with upstream kernels even if linus constantly shit on them because they know some things need atleast exist unmerged codes somewhere to be merged if needed at some point.
>use strawman to justify its existence
See their opinion on monolitic kernels.
muh muh it's big so not secure, this is not how things work and it's a big redflag to see these crazy claims.
Their marketing is so bad it's awkward, they have big claims but nothing to back them up.

>use xen instead of mainline kvm
They say it's because xen is lighter which is true but it just adverts your eyes from the real problem, virtualizing everything, this is a dumb idea in 2019 when we have OSes made up of layers for atleast 4 decades now.
You virtualize things to SEPARATE them, the whole virtualization world is build around this idea, they want to use this on a desktop between programs, this is insane and definitely not the right technology for this.

I was compiling gcc. All CPU cores were at 100% usage, and memory was also at a 100%. I noticed that the laptop's palmrest was burning my hand. Then it made a loud "POP!" sound, and died.

It turned itself off, and after a while I have not been able to turn it on again.

WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENED? Did my toaster explode?
