We're so back brosPrevious Thread: >>39829333>Old legacy phones>NVIDIA drivers on linux>Stickers or no stickers>Vintage technology
>>39922865>Old legacy phonesDefine a legacy phone, lol. My phone released in 2016, is that legacy?And to keep this pony related, pic related is my phone>NVIDIA on LinuxI don't use NVIDIA GPUs, so no real input there.>Stickers or no stickersDepends on the device, but usually no stickers. I have a hard time actually committing to using a sticker. Especially on a device that will likely stop working at some point.>Vintage technologyOnly vintage tech I use on a regular basis is my audio stuff.My receiver is actually one of the few things I do have a sticker on. It's a licensed pony one, no less. I also have some unofficial pony magnets on it too.I can post about that if anyone is interested.
>>39922865My current phone is still a Sony Ericsson J132 dumbphone that I got for free from my father ages ago. Although I do cheat by using his smartphone when I need to do something that requires one.I need to get a smartphone myself someday but the whole "sell your soul to Google" plus "government tracking device" thing has kept me.
>>39922865>Old legacy phonesNo thanks>NVIDIA drivers on linuxYes please>Stickers or no stickersAbsolutely no.>Vintage technologyI'm a giant flaming fag for buying a turntable but I don't care, I love vinyls.

Anyone knows any interesting less known decentralized technologies? I know mostly only the very "mainstream" ones like Torrent and IPFS but I've watched this Libreplanet talk https://framatube.org/w/kvJwbHRjftEnT6tUPqQ8CY recently and now I wonder how much interesting stuff I don't know about.

>>39931719Hardware isn't the problem (i love tinyminimares and their kind blinkylighties), purpose is. Everything I host is well served by current one decent server, and splitting the current workloads across machines would just make it more complex and troublesome with no benefits. Well, except those pony hostnames, that would be great.I suppose the best use case so far would be running work webshit on an actual Kubernetes cluster instead of minikube on underpowered laptop, but that'd be used only occasionally and at that point I'd just run it on the big server with better results, optionally virtualizing K8s nodes if needed.>I'm not a serverfag but I hear that's funIt is!

A bit expensive though.>a tower of server cubes>each called a different pony name>each with an accordingly selected pony stickerqt>>39929884It's certainly a situation where you have the solution, but you're looking for a problem to solve.

>>39931747>It is! Get a home server anon,I wanna but I'm a lazy hack. I've planned to do so more than once but never got around to it.I also feel like nothing I'd do would justify some kind of advanced virtualisation setup. My residential internet is shit (especially on the upload) so I am already renting a shitty box for the random internet-facing bits and bobs I host. (Where I'm not virtualising anything either.) So at home it'd basically be a local NAS and a backup storage for myself, and really wouldn't justify running proxmox or xen or whatever.
>>39931786>I wanna but I'm a lazy hack. I've planned to do so more than once but never got around to it.dew it, I'll give you a (You) and you'll make your poni waifu proud. It's fun once you get going, you'll encounter more cool things to selfhost.>I also feel like nothing I'd do would justify some kind of advanced virtualisation setup.Given that containerization (in the style of one-app-images of Docker/Podman, not whole-system-images of LXC/LXD) is a thing nowadays, I'd say most people don't need to run VMs at home. Just pick some computer you have (or a cheap tinyminimicro if you don't), install your favorite Linux distro and either run shit bare metal, or use docker-compose for some nicer isolation and declarativeness to it.I'll admit that going through VMs, LXC, Docker, Kubernetes, etc. lets you learn more than sticking with one approach, but even if you don't, you'll still learn a fair bit. Good on you having a VPS/dedi so far, but you probably don't manage much storage there - ZFS woes and considerations are a long topic on its own. Got more than one server? You can practice config management via Ansible (because e.g. you're lazy fuck like me who didn't want to copy the same backup scripts on 5 machines - let's spend 3 hours automating it instead).Even with shitty upload it's nice to see people e.g. seeding pony torrents, and buying HDDs is (imo) cheaper long-term than renting storage servers. Maybe I'm shilling it too much but selfhosting really is fun and educational and spreading good practices and fighting against centralization of internet while being practical and useful as fuck. It can be a money and time sinking hobby, it can be a justwerks tool, it can get you a career headstart - it's whatever you make of it. Kinda like ponies.
>>39931813>but you probably don't manage much storage thereYeah correct, it came automatically configured with a RAID1 and I just left it at that. I wouldn't use a rented server for storage/backup anyway.Eh, maybe I'll get around to it at some point.
>>39926887Depends, how much change has to be done for it to be considered Pony? Is replacing references to God with Celesita/Luna enough? Slapping in some extra Pony pictures? Ponyfying the games?
>>39932270Probably all of the aboveMaybe edit some of the random word generators to be like a fanfic generator or something
>>39923330>>39924265Is there some meme behind this book? Asking because I see anons frequently bring it without obvious (at least for me) reasons.>>39927043I've installed Jami (GNU Ring) on my parents' phones. It's P2P VoIP (voice and video) phone with presence publishing in DHT. Only centralized part about it is DHT bootstrap server and TURN but you can change them for your own in settings. It works for what it is but full of quirks. Like you cannot delete messages history (because it based on git) and you need to be sure that app work in background otherwise call will miss.

How do I get a free/very cheap email that is:- not Gmail/Yahoo/Outlook/etc- not my ISP's- secure and has uptime that assures I don't miss anything sent to meI'm a noob on this terrain, but all I've seen so far is that if you start hosting your own mail server you actually literally need to have 100% uptime or you lose emails, which is obviously unacceptable.

>>39933442>if you start hosting your own mail server You also have to convince the big mail providers and spam lists that your email address is real. Sometimes impossible

Is matrix.horse hosted by /mlp/ anon? Is that anon here, by any chance?>>39933442ct8.pl if you can the navigate Polish website, just make sure to sign into admin panel or SSH more often than 90 days apart to keep the account. Free, no big issues, can plug your own domain, reliable enough (most mail servers will attempt redelivery if target server is down before giving up).>>39934496Sad yet good in a way, maybe it'll finally shine more light to people that there's no free lunch, and hosting of files is too expensive to do forever.Some collaborative hosting could be nice, I'm very slowly warming up to IPFS, at worst I could take the files from anon in /pag/ and check them manually once before pinning them on my server.
>>39935016Something happening with matrix.horse?I run another /mlp/ instance, but I know that is run by a board regular as well
>>39935320Yeah, a few days ago someone created an account there and posted bad images to public Matrix rooms. I couldn't find a way to reach that admin to let him know someone's abusing his server (main domain redirects to Element, same as on (probably) your server too). There's https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-spec-proposals/blob/hs/proposal-admin-contact-1/proposals/1929-admin-contact.md in works but even just a simple static page on the main domain, listing an email address/MXID to reach in such cases could be beneficial.The username was @ack:matrix.horse. Around the same time, someone else on matrix.im server spammed bad images as well, so maybe it wasn't a targeted attack on poni's public image, just someone being an asshole.
>>39935360I think he's aware but I'll let him knowThey recently created a group of /mlp/ friendly server admins to share reports like thismlp.chat does go to an element but with ponies ^:)
>>39935375Thanks anon, appreciated. The media distribution situation on Matrix is scary, I don't want to go in detail to give ideas to someone malicious lurking (if you spent a while looking at the spec/issues you'll probably know what I mean), but I wonder if public _server_ admins have some way to effectively combat this kind of abuse sent from other servers.Such a shame, the protocol definitely has potential but abuse prevention/cleanup isn't perfect yet. t. admin of a small server

Any good TLD registrars? Does it even matter which one you pick? I was looking at some pony domains I'd like but I'm not sure where i should buy them. Also most of just pony.* domains are super expensive everywhere because "pony" is too short.But one funny thing is that pony.tech costs everywhere around 600-1000$ and I found it at local registrar for ~5€ for year and 63€ for two years. I wanted to buy it for a while but then decided against it because they would probably not let me renew it at reasonable price and I would have to rebrand everything (not that there would be much, but still).
>>39937482holy moly that is a lot of money600-1000 own it out right?this interests me. where can i look for the prices of domains on>>39937299this is cute, i wonder who the pony is
>>39937482Funny you mention that domain because I was also looking at buying it recently. Your registrar is likely wrong with its pricing though.Domains come in a few special types pony.tech is considered a premium domain which is where the TLD owner marks up the price of common words and thus is something like $600. There are also domains which some registrars classify this way which are actually just domains owned by partnered domain squatting companies that go and buy up lucrative names and try to re-sell them for huge prices, or it could just be some individual trying to sell it through a connected domain marketplace like Sedo. You can usually determine which case it is based on if it has any whois information, if it does then that usually means a company/individual is holding it and is selling it, if not then that's just the TLD owner marking the price up.The renewal price is always the same as everyone else though usually, like it's only gonna be say $10 a year or something for a common TLD, some TLDs have a higher yearly price which can get into the hundreds. The premium price is simply a one-time payment to get ownership of it, beyond that it is just renewed like normal.I for example own a .com domain that I paid $20k for and its renewal price is like $7 a year or whatever despite that. Premium cost is like buying property, renewal cost is like paying for utilities after that just to maintain the record on a nameserver and all that.
>>39937482Also forgot to answer the other question, yes the registrar matters. The price they give you for renewal may be more expensive or at times cheaper than the actual rate the TLD is requiring for renewing a domain. In the case of asking for more this is how they profit, and when asking for less they may be trying to get new users (some do a mix of both by offering a reduced rate for say the first year or few years to lock you into a longer contract with them, just usual sort of subscription stuff).I personally use Namecheap when I can since they have fine pricing and are fairly trusted but Cloudflare's registrar for example is quite good as it doesn't charge any additional fees on top of what is required by the TLD's owner and the ICANN, so it's pretty much a wholesale registrar. Downside is stuff like Cloudflare only offers a limited selection of domains, for many of the crazy gTLDs you usually need to use Namecheap or others that actually offer them.There's also some other features to think about, like for higher values domains you might want better security on your account/domain which is really just up to the registrar on how they implement (some might not have say 2FA or more intense domain locking capability which might be important to you). It's also worth considering the ToS of the registrar as they are the true owners of the domain and can hijack it from you if you violate their terms (or really for whatever reason). The owner of Kiwifarms was afraid of their domain getting hijacked for example and had to move it around to ensure that didn't happen, but this usually is a rare concern unless you plan on hosting (problematic) content. Finally you probably want a registrar that supports some sort of Whois protection, usually you're required to give your IRL name/address to a registrar (though you could always lie) and that is put on the domain Whois, but most big ones like Namecheap have a free service which proxies that info through another shell company pretty much so that complaints can still be sent to you but without revealing your personal info to the whole internet.Many also offer other services like site hosting, buying SSL certs easily, or DNS if you're not comfortable with say using custom nameservers and doing all the hosting yourself, but that's more of a business orthogonal to the actual domain registrar aspect (I myself never use any of that and always just use Cloudflare as my DNS and do all the hosting with other companies).Hopefully that's useful, there's a lot of factors really but for a simpler site you probably won't run into quite as many concerns beyond just the pricing they offer, but still it's worth keeping all that in mind as not all registrars are made equal.

I'm installing gentoo with LTO PGO Graphite and Ofast, not using any overlays, just package.env to fix stuff wish me luck anons.>Also, recommend lightweight DEs/WMs.I used bspwm before but I think I'll step away from tiling managers so maybe I'll just use xfce this time>Should I use AppArmor or SELinux? Or none?I never set these up myself before so that could be a challenge
>>39937482I use OVH because they have the cheap .ovh TLD.>Does it even matter which one you pick?I'd choose one with an usable admin panel, API and cheap renewal prices. OVH kinda fits the bill for my normal domains.>pony.tech costs everywhere around 600-1000$ and I found it at local registrar for ~5€ for year and 63€ for two yearsYeah, they'll probably fuck you on renewal costs, check that first. OVH lists that particular domain as premium, maybe your local registrar just checked their regular .tech pricing, not considering that poni and tech go together as well as peanut butter and jelly.You might want to consider domain hacks, e.g. ponyte.ch - seems cheap to buy and to renew, at OVH at least.>>39938088can't unsee
>>39938130>not using any overlays, just package.env to fix stuff wish me luck anons.I'm curious why not. It's been a while but I remember someone had been curating an overlay that preconfigures that for you nicely.

It's down to preference ultimately. LXQT is the lightest "full" DE around that I'm aware of.There are also floating WMs like Openbox for example.>>Should I use AppArmor or SELinux? Or none?From everything I've heard these require extensive configuration. Technically it might be worth it for a defense in depth scenario, but you gotta weigh the effort it will take vs. the benefits you get. For a typical personal desktop, where you've got sane security configuration everywhere else and also use common sense, it's probably not worth it. If your benefits include "learning to set it up", then maybe.Arguably though something Qubes-like is still going to be more secure than a SELinux system, so if you just want the most autistic personal system possible, then insteall Heads or something.
>>39938196>I'm curious why not.

I wanted to post something interesting, but I forgot what it was
I want to trust the Mint mare, but I'm not confident she's the one Linux mare. I've been spending some time with her, treating her like Windows (so: only visual interactions, no command line, no thinking about updates, no "must do" tweaks after install), and unfortunately I don't think she could ever be my long term Linux. While she's quite stable, the tiny, really small amount of bugginess in KDE on Arch is acceptable when in return you get much more features.It makes me worried that I want to like her, I do, but I see her flaws that my Arch and KDE mares don't have. They have their own downsides, and for me those are manageable (CLI install process, constant updates, a bit of glitches/bugs), but they might not be something a Windows user would want to put up with. Cinnamon will let me use Super key to put bottom panel (and program menu) above fullscreen game, but won't register clicks on the panel, only on the menu. While it's not Gnome tier of simplicity beyond reason, stuff like screen lock does feel more barebones. Sure I can set an "away message", which is a feature I miss from older Windows/Gnome, but I can't change the lockscreen wallpaper.And of course I could spend my time getting into development of the DE stuff there, but I'd be contributing into something used just by one distro, and not even a distro that I use daily... at least I might make it better that way, for the other people I suggest it to. I'm just more comfortable with Arch than Debian or derivatives on desktop. It's the pacman and its ecosystem, I think.I thought I found a reasonable middle ground distro mare to give people if they seek a good cuddle buddy, but myself I can't love her as much as I love another distro mare that I've trusted years ago and she's never failed me. She's a bit of work though, and I don't want people to think all distro mares need a lot of effort. You could have a simple cutie who's a good pony as well for the average anon. I don't remember where I was going with this analogy between Linux distros and adoration (not necessarily love) for ponies, but they felt kinda relevant. With waifus it comes to people naturally after they meet the ponies and after some time it clicks, but you could probably name a few ponies that would be a "match" for certain types of people. Not in the waifu sense outright, just as a starter but good pony they could e.g. read stories about and most likely will enjoy her character traits bouncing off that person's character. I want to have something like that but with penguins, I want something to show that you can get love^H^H^H^Hadoration on first sight./g/ would probably start picking on random flaws of any distros. I'd like to know if anons who know what it's like to adore a pony, could also say that Linux distros could be looked at in a similar way.There, a discussion topic. I can't believe I've just made the "you just had bad Linux, try good Linux" kangaroo meme more real.
>>39939957afterwordThe more I use Mint, the more it hits me that Cinnamon, Xapps and the other Mint software have their own small annoyances that simply aren't present on KDE, Xfce and even Gnome 3. For some reason I feel like those annoyances are not fixable, and instead I would have to "give up" and get used to them, like that bottom panel above fullscreen game thing.On the other hand, when I encounter a bug or quirk in KDE I just think to myself "yeah, someone probably already noticed this and reported/complained about it and it'll get fixed/changed in a few days". Or maybe I'm used to the Plasma quirks, yet I expect more from Mint because I want to treat it as a "perfect default"?Windows has bugs and quirks too, so maybe it's just a case of getting something good in exchange for something bad elsewhere, no matter the system. At least on Windows you don't have that much choice. Ironic, I know, but you can't get a bad or worse experience. You'll get the average experience because that's the only one (LTSC aside), maybe you'll like it, maybe you won't. With Linux I've always felt this pressure to find a distro with most average, but good experience.Another reason for my doubts is that Mint is, well, it's derived 2 steps from Debian. (I'll ignore LMDE for a second here, since a normal person will just download the default ISO - based on Ubuntu.) There what, 3 people in the core Mint maintainers team? I'm concerned that there's some e.g. stability testing that Ubuntu can do with Canonical and their money, meanwhile Mint puts their stuff on top of Ubuntu. I have the curse of "just werks" no matter the distro, and Mint was stable so far, but I don't feel super confident about that in some exotic hardware configurations. Just something that bugs me.Oh, and the update manager. I really tried to avoid updating the system via mintUpdate in systray, hoping I'd get at least a notification that I'm missing out on 105 security updates since install 2 weeks ago in a VM I use almost every day (so I should've already gotten a popup). Although maybe there is some logic that detects it's in a VM and wants to not bother me, since I saw the updates popup at least once on a real laptop. See, they had those blog posts that they want to not be Windows (known for updates forced at some unfortunate times) but they want to nudge non-tech people into installing updates at all. Something like smartphones do for OS updates - you'll get a notification with a chance to reboot (to updated in background A/B slot) or to get notified a bit later. I got into Mint with this assumption that it's made with normal people in mind, and it can hint the user to do the minimum maintenance at appropriate times. You get it, inb4 updooting - I'm still running an old Firefox just because of my experiment. On the family's real laptop that runs Mint I setup Timeshift and autoupdates anyway. But I want to know if OOTB approach to security upgs is good = trustable.ponies

>>39940614Nah it's more like Windows is legit Lego but it comes fully pre-assembled, and Linux is just random pieces of Lego from Aliexpress. Both easy to break but the pieces of Windows fit together much nicer, and is typically easier to put back together if it breaks.

Do anyone of you use your TV anymore?I watch almost everything through devices, never a TV. I got a nice one too
>>39943852Yeah same, I'd have a roll up projector screen instead of a TV. I prefer watching TV shows on my computer monitor and headphones but for movies a big screen surround sound couch experience (preferably with friends) is nice, and being able to have it pack away is a bonus. I'd rather have artwork on the wall, or a center channel speaker in the correct location (behind the screen!) over a TV screen that gets turned on once in a blue moon there.
>>39944798Post favorite software/hardware made by ponyfags.I'll start with chanduino. Cute.
>>39943852I do, I prefer TV usually Though I stream everything from an Android tv box
>>39943852I use it to watch regular tv sometimes, there are still a few shows I like.
>>39945357Pretty based honestly>>39944196>roll up projectorNow we're fucking talking.I should bring a mini projector to a con, but then again the big hotel room TV's are good enough really>>39946116That still air?>>39944912Can't you make this yourself for a few bucks
>>39946718>Can't you make this yourself for a few bucksThe hardware is off the shelf, it's the software that takes a lot of work
>>39943852Used to have a cheap projector, but for some reason I was usually watching stuff on laptop in bed.Although one thing that was undeniably nice was when I sat in front of the projection wall and put the FiM intro on, then recorded a video of the wall. It felt like ponis were so close to me, really sweet feeling.
>>39943852I use an old Sony Bravia TV as my main monitor still, as for using one for its intended purpose, I haven't done that in a decade or so, there's been nothing to watch on television where I live compared to 15 years ago even
>>39946718>That still air?Yeah
>>39940968I don't know if a reinstallation counts as "easier to put back together"
>>39947280this is as close as we can get to the portallast time i watched a movie it was on my thinkpad, shit was pretty comfy >>39947303Actually based, how's the framerate and stuff feel on it? I got a cousin that uses an old sony TV as a monitor too
>>39948354>how's the framerate and stuff feel on it?Pretty decent considering that it's a TV, the only thing I've noticed is a /slight/ ghosting but I'm not sure if it's just me or not, I don't have any other frame of reference. Latency isn't a problem too, at least for what I use the TV for

>>39922865>Vintage technologyI bought a new 3DS because Citra sucks at emulating. It's pretty comfy.>NVIDIA drivers on linuxI have an older NVIDIA card and the legacy driver is broken. I stuck with 10 IoT LTSC for now.
>>39948484I'd definitely try Linux, it's honestly less hassle than Windows in a lot of ways. Especially if you just want to browse the web, watch movies, and do some gaymin. A lot of distros can be live booted from a flash drive, and allow you to poke around the system to see if it's something you're interested in. Plus you could always dual boot if you want to keep Windows. That's easier if you have a second drive in your pc, but you can dual boot with a single drive too.

A computer from 5 years ago still works just fine, you'd upgrade a GPU if you're into games but it's still usable. 5 year old phone gets abandoned and to get newer software you have to rely on anons from around the world to maintain phone specific fork of the OS for you, against all issues that crop up with time. What a mess, really.>used to be scared of "wasting" stickers but i can just get new ones, they dont cost a fortunesimilar, except I'm still stuck on being very conscious of tweaking design of anything via stickers/posters, not sure why>vintage techseems like the oldest tech i have would be my headphones, DT 770 PRO, although the design might be from 1985 I'm not sure what is the exact manufacturing date of my pairother than that, probably my Kindle 4 from 2011, simple tool that does its job well despite the age. No cloud that would've been already shut down after those years, no software updates really needed, liberated enough to run custom software, able to just work as a standalone device. Really something you don't see nowadays, i.e. my phone which is relevant today only because it's stock software was basically AOSP without any heavy tuning.>LunixFor me, the biggest reason to try it was tech curiosity, closely followed by Microsoft becoming more and more annoying with Windows 8.1/10. I use my system mostly in default UI colors etc., so I can't post my "desktop rice" for the anon who asked, but it's just a more adult experience than modern Windows imo. For me, it just works and annoys me much less.Windows has a solid position on the OS market because of a lot of software written just for this one system. Thankfully my line of work doesn't require Windows at all (on the contrary, Linux skillsets) but I'm sure there are some anons who can't escape the need for e.g. Adobe suite due to it being an enterprise standard.If your primary concern were gaming, then I'd say you can give Linux a chance. Valve spent a lot of money to help the community efforts of Wine, DXVK, VKD3D bring Windows games to the other side, most often without any custom setup required. Of course not everything works OOTB, some games with heavy anticheat will refuse to run.You've mentioned traveling, I guess you have a laptop then. If you use it as a secondary PC, you could put Linux there and see if it's as scary as you thought. Just keep in mind it's not Windows, and keep an open mind to learning new things, then you'll be fine.I would suggest Linux Mint or Kubuntu for starters. Check out both.
>>39949493What game is that? Huh, niceLike I said before tho Steam Deck just beats the DS in terms of Emulation, plus I like to get as many hours tracked on Steam as I can for autism reasonsOnly thing I really use my DS for is Flipnote Studio, the community maintained version anyway which is still filled with pony stuff surprisingly

I grew up in the information age, but never had enough opportunity/curiosity to figure out tech, so I’m behind.I hate the modern world so much its fucking ridiculous. I hate the expectation of being tracked, I hate constantly having my waste fed back to me through intrusive ads, I hate digital services introducing unnecessary algorithms and artificial intelligence. I crave living authentically and I resent the world for taking that away from me. Getting there tho, so I’m on the up, I think. I don’t have internet at home, and when my smartphone breaks I’m getting a dumbphone and an mp3 player.My zoomer desire is to be spoonfed a way out but I know I have to make it for myself. I haven’t found an easily accessible “so you’re a retard who hates his phone” guide to getting off modern tech, and threads like this are helpful to me. I get told about what old tech people still use and the upsides and downsides of it, so I’m grateful to you autists for posting.Dumbphone users, what do you use? what makes life easier or harder? what mobile tech do you keep on you, like a gps or a disposable camera?

Lately I've been thinking about making sort of universal scrapper/api parser as I couldn't find anything that would fit my use case. So I thought I'd ask first if someone knows about something similar already existing.So, basically, I want something that can parse any pre-defined api/http response I point it to, and execute any actions depending on the content of the response. For example, pic related is possible configuration if I wanted to get notification whenever someone posts in this thread with the username "Target". (the higher part is simplified 4chan api response, the lower part is how the definition/config could look).But you could use it for pretty much anything, even for normal scrapping. Yes, html would be harder, but doable, although I would focus on APIs primarily. I was looking for scrapper libraries, but you always have to "get" your way to the data and only after Then you can do something with it, here you would just declaratively say what you care about and what should be done with it (if you want to change the data before saving).So my questions:1) Is there something like this already?2) Is it as superior as it sounds to me? I feel like the potential is huge, but someone would have probably done it by now if it was so great.And to answer some possible implementation details: I'd probably do it in Clojure it as it can eval code on the fly, and the definition would be in .edn (basically Clojure - thats why you could define short functions directly in config), but common functions could also be provided by the scrapper.I don't even know what would this be classified as, some sort of scrapping framework? I hope it makes some sense, I should have been sleeping long time ago, but I couldn't stop thinking about it and reading about different scrapping libraries.
>>39953274I've honestly been using my phone a lot more in the past 2 years and part of that might have something to do with new algorithmic mediaI need to stop and use my other devices, or reas honestly.

>>39953274>Dumbphone users, what do you use? what makes life easier or harder? what mobile tech do you keep on you, like a gps or a disposable camera?Well most (all?) dumb phones have the ability to install java apps at the minimum, if you need Google Maps that can still be used on them. I don't carry a camera because realistically for what you would use a smartphone camera for a 2 megapixel shitcam will do fine. If i'm out with my friends one of them can be the photographer. I might recommend a keychain flashlight as most have no ability to use the flash as a light. I personally have a Nokia S60 device which were considered smartphones as they have real multitasking and native C apps, but obviously being from the late 2000s it's not going to have any of the junk you associate with modern phones, they can be small and have killer battery life which is why you might want one over just de-googled Android. This affords me GPS and high speed data for the maps (well as far as 3G is concerned). Unfortunately I don't think you can save maps on Wifi and use them when you're out, at least on the version of Gmaps I could hunt down. Opera Mini can still *kinda* load most webpages if you need it in a pinch. They're also a fine music player, no flac of course, maybe vorbis works. You usually would use m4a/aac on these, it's very picky with the AAC format though, the file converter in Winamp works but VLC doesn't. Coreplayer can play just about any music or video format but like most old S60 apps it's unobtanium now, other than an absolutely ancient cracked version that doesn't work on more recent devices. Instead of releasing a free copy when they stopped development they just vanished without a trace, with no way of even paying for a copy. Keep in mind since these all predate the 4 pole jack with remote standard any modern 4 pole headphones will not work properly, they need to be pulled out of the jack ever so slightly or it'll sound wrong.What makes life harder? Theoretical people that expect you to install some app or go to a webpage NAO. It hasn't happened to me yet but I'm sure it will and I'll probably get berated for being a hipster or some shit. Also you feel like you have to hide it in public because people will see and you will have to justify your phone to people which is annoying. They're (usually) not being (overtly) rude it's just personally when it comes to irl randoms i'd rather talk about anything else.
>>39953510HP Probook 430 G7 and newer, Dell XPS 13. Maybe there are some lenovos. Acer was supposed to have some cool 3:2 and 16:10 13" machines out for a couple generations at least but as far as I can tell they were just vaporware, or only sold in select countries. All the fanless machines I know of are dual core Celeries with a poorly designed flat heatsink that can't dissipate any heat, it will throttle to shit and be nigh unusable. Not to mention baking your legs if you use your laptop on your lap. If you want silence it's best to get a normal machine and set a power cap. Most machines can run passively or at least very quietly under a web browsing load without any tinkering.
>>39954607>HP Probook 430 G7G6 and newer, I mean.
>>39953274>Dumbphone users, what do you use? what makes life easier or harder? what mobile tech do you keep on you, like a gps or a disposable camera?I was going to write a length post then I pressed Escape closing the quick reply window.The tl;dr is that I mostly use my laptop. I also use an old budget Android from 2013, a $100 motorola G (peregrine). It's slow as balls to load anything but if you're patient it's perfectly usable - modern Fennec works just fine for example, it just takes a few seconds to open the app or load any new page. I use it without a SIM so no data, and just connect it to wifi at home to move stuff over with Syncthing - primarily for Osmand as a GPS locator, but also sometimes to have a PDF of a ticket or boarding pass for example or to save some timetable for future reference. The phone's a fucking champ, battery still holds ~3+ days idle after all these years, and I've dropped it multiple times including on tiled floors and the screen is somehow still intact.The main things that genuinely irk me is the lack of google maps and of a rideshare/taxi app like Uber. Osmand's "points of interest near me" and proper navigation/routing capabilities might as well be nonexistent compared to google maps', so while it works great as GPS, I have to plan out routes in advance myself and I can never be the guy who pulls up a list of nearby restaurants or something to suggest something to go to. And none of Uber, Lyft, etc. work on browsers - they tend to have working websites that then just refuse to let you book, so you can't even pre-book a ride in advance without using the app on a phone.Other than that? You basically adjust a bit more to ensuring you pre-plan things before leaving the house, and do things mainly on your computer. Other than maps and Uber, I don't miss anything at all.>>39954597Incidentally my dumbphone has a torch (though it's really, really weak). You can also get dedicated music players, I fell for the /iemg/+/pmp/ meme. A dedicated e-reader too, like an old tiny kindle works perfectly well (or a modern small sized e-reader is fine too).>Also you feel like you have to hide it in public because people will see and you will have to justify your phone to people which is annoying.It's come up a few times for me and I just use it to make a point that I hate technology.I also work in tech so it's not like people can call me a hipster or something. I spend 40+ hours a week in front of a computer working with tech. I've owned multiple android phones, and spent dozens of hours trying to get custom ROMs to work in a way that I liked; I own a Pinephone too just because I hoped it would be usable. Hipsters are those who buy those $200 e-ink "phones" to have "no distractions" - I'm just a nerd who hates both android and ios and there are no other options so I gave up on phones, so I use a $15 dumbphone from amazon and occasionally a $100-new phone from 2013 (probably worth less than my dumbphone by now).
>>39953510>Comfy computing Anons, any advice for a reasonably priced laptop I can use to do the same?Thinkpad X230, with the IPS screenThe only downside is non-FHD screen (unless you're into tinkering and get a mod for it; check out the X330, guy sells a modkit for a 2K UHD screen even).>fanless>second hand macbookMemes, memes. I don't know about modern macbooks, but back when I used one for work a few years ago, the "thin, sleek design" and being """""fanless"""" made it overheat and throttle on basic shit that my 2012 era X230 thinkpad chugs through with zero issues. The thicc business design of the thinkpad leads to actually good cooling, so it precisely WON'T catch on fire while doing shit in bed. You can also open it up and clean the fast from dust and change the thermal paste if it runs a bit too hot.The alternative would be some ARM machine, those are a lot more power efficient than most x86 ones. So unironically one of the M1 macbooks could be good (and, for all their issues, macbooks do have good quality screens). But those are expensive.Another alternative is a modern thinkpad, like an X1 or something, but I don't have any experience with them. They're slightly thinner but should still have decent cooling hopefully, and somewhat more efficient modern processors than an X230's Ivy Bridge? Idk.
update, my t400 im considering between debian unstable or arch. leaning more towards debian atm
>>39953368Guix, or I'll call you a fag
>>39955319They ever get KDE working with Guix?
>>39955319what's appealing about Guix?
>>39955298yeah debian would probably suit a fag like you
>>39955298Arch is so comfy broPersonally I think the only thing Debian got going for itself is the .deb packages you can install pretty easilyBut Arch has the AUR so. I honestly would dumb it down to aesthetics, which one looks better to you?Pic related is my Silverpad T60P, running Arch+xfce4+chicago95 themeIt's my go to theme'age. Ultra comfort
>>39955429>I honestly would dumb it down to aesthetics, which one looks better to you?That is the weirdest fucking way to phrase it. What do you mean by "aesthetics"?Do you mean literally, as in the visual aesthetics of the desktop environment? Both Debian and Arch are mature distros that support just about every DE so you literally just install your choice. It's not like the bazillion spinoff distros which are just "fork of a fork of a fork of Debian except with preconfigured ShitAssDE", or something.It's been ages since I've used either debian or arch on desktop, either, but I'm pretty sure both ship most DE packages in pretty much default, unriced configurations. So you don't get anything like a bespoke preconfigured look - unless you install it.So the visuals are exactly how you set them up, on both distros. If you don't set anything up you're gonna be dropped into a tty on both of them, which I guess is the "default" aesthetic for both of them.I assume you don't mean the default tty console font, though, because that would be retarded (and can also be changed in 2 minutes).So what could you possibly mean then? The "feel" of their software, i.e. the aesthetic appeal of using e.g. pacman over apt, and such? That's the most obtuse wording I've ever seen if so, just say "choose the package manager you prefer" or something.
>>39955356Honestly I cant get past install in Guix (it fails no matter what I do) so I don't really know, but I would probably go for EXWM anyway since they offer it during installation, just for the full autism experience>>39955359To me personally, pretty much all of the points they state on the main page>Liberating. Guix is a distribution of the GNU operating system developed by the GNU Project—which respects the freedom of computer users. >Dependable. Guix supports transactional upgrades and roll-backs, unprivileged package management, and more. When used as a standalone distribution, Guix supports declarative system configuration for transparent and reproducible operating systems.>Hackable. It provides Guile Scheme APIs, including high-level embedded domain-specific languages (EDSLs) to define packages and whole-system configurations.But I've never tried it properly, I hate using stuff in VM, no space or spare device for dual boot, and the remaining free PC has incompatible HW.On the other hand, if I remember correctly they were one of the first fags who were against RMS during the whole "Epstein's victims presented entirely willing"
>>39955446>LiberatingI don't really like that too much because it's one thing to promote free software, to push it through licensing, and to not make non-free software available by default; but when I use my computer I would like the choice to use non-free software for things where FOSS doesn't exist yet, and it would be great if that didn't have to be relegated to underground smuggled repositories whose existence you aren't even allowed to acknowledge to the Guix project. Reminds me of the days of being on emulation forums and having to smile and pretend that yes, of course I dumped all of my games myself from legitimately purchased discs on my real console, what's a torrent I never heard of that! Except that was for legal reasons and this is for ideology.>Dependable.This is the real draw, and in some ways it offers appealing advantages over NixOS (such as Guile as a language).That being said immutable distros are picking up as a meme, and claim to offer the same benefits but without the headache of a completely new paradigm.>Hackable.How much free time do you have? I really wanted to like Guix last time I tried it but the truth is "hackable" is only good in theory, unless you are willing to put in the time to hack on your system. If you are, fantastic, Guix can probably be really fun, but if you just want to use your PC that bullet point tells me "you're probably gonna have to package your software yourself, goy!".

I never understood why there are so many Arch advocates. It just seems they want to feel superior to other users and talk very cult-like. Of course that's probably a gross oversimplification, but I do feel like it's true for many.Anyway, If you want to use something that is easy to setup and has good presets while beeing bleeding edge, go with Tumbleweed.If you want something advanced go with gentoo, it really is a nice learning experience to figure out the use flags, CPU flags, setup EFIstub, adjust DWM to your liking and just mess around the system in general without any constraints. You don't really get a truly minimal and tailored system without the USE flags that gentoo offers.One thing I appreciate Arch for is their wiki, but the user base is pretty awful.
>>39955513>I never understood why there are so many Arch advocates. It just seems they want to feel superior to other users and talk very cult-like.That may have been true at one point but is it really nowadays? I don't think arch makes you particularly superior. The meme is "install gentoo", not install arch, precisely because arch isn't autistic enough.
>>39955487>it would be great if that didn't have to be relegated to underground smuggled repositories whose existence you aren't even allowed to acknowledge to the Guix projectThat sucks if that's the case. I was never involved with Guix much beyond trying to install it every now and then.>How much free time do you have?Well, I like Emacs. I would expect something similar, I don't think I've spent that much time configuring it (although I probably did). But yes, it's one of the reasons I never tried it on any PC that I depend on.>"you're probably gonna have to package your software yourself, goy!"If something, I've heard that the Guix package manager is pretty good, however when I tried it debian, there was a lot of fuckery with PATHs that I didn't feel like solving at the time
think I'm gonna get a dumbphone myself honestly. I really love the smartphone I have now, but I'd rather not have it always be preoccupying my time whenever I have a free moment. wish I could have more self-control, but freeing myself from it in general will probably do just as good. just have to find one that works with my carrier (impossible).>>39954964what pmp do you have? been heavily debating getting a HiBy R6 Gen3
>>39941043That's a cute looking Lunix desktop. Here's my silly pony desktop.
>>39956403What terminal is that? I thought only Terminology could display images
>>39956416nvm it's written in the image, I'm retarded
>>39950042>LineageOSoh shit my phone actually qualifies. how is it? never tried an alternative os to android
>>39955443I guess I just didn't read that back before posting, it does sound like I made no pointI do like the feel of pacman and the AUR, I guess the real appeal would have to be how lightweight it can be>>39955513Your oversimplification is also a meme but for ArchI guess I just don't feel the need to elaborate in words why Arch is a liberating and free operating system and find myself using words that other Arch users tend to overuse like "comfy" or "just wurks"Kind of like how you explained gentoo, this anon put it well >>39955529Your point about gentoo fits the meme too, whether that was on purpose or notI guess we are just autistic >>39954964>>39955609Absolutely interesting. I think the only things I would also miss are maps and an app like uber too. If I can think of a workaround I would highly consider going through with it, at least to try. But like you said I would need to think ahead of time. I need to stop using my phone too much.>>39956403cute pony, great art, and comfy theme + points for distro>>39956540bumping, I almost bought another phone this month because of it's LineageOS qualifications but I decided against it.Interested in knowing how it feels running as a daily driver
>>39957225Arch doesn't "just work"It takes time, effort, research, and holy shit a lot of time to get it to work how you want
>>39956540LineageOS is basically stock Android. There's no difference in daily use, until you start ricing.I've switched to LOS + MicroG (absolutely no Google apps/services) and it works fine. I get all my apps from F-Droid, and if I absolutely must get something from the Play Store I just sideload it.Protips for LineageOS:1. Don't install LineageOS2. If you have to, only install on a phone that has official support. Builds from XDA made by Brazilian teens are not official.3. Read the unlock and installation instructions *very* carefully.4. Don't ever update
Ended up getting a OnePlus 6t for the sole purpose of trying out various mobile linux distros. Found a model for a case online and fucked around in blender for way too long to get Shimmer's cutie mark on the case. Only ended up actually trying out PostmarketOS and NixOS Mobile, neither of which were that great. NixOS Mobile especially was weird because I had to use an aarch64 system to create the image.
We already had the perfect mobile linux OS, but They wouldn't allow it...
>>39957541If they didn't so hastily sign the Microsoft deal the world would be a better place
>>39955609>what pmp do you have?I used to use a Zishan Z3, as pretty much one of the cheaper ones you can get that are still gonna have decent audio circuitry. Then I got myself Hidizs AP80 pro, which has a nice volume wheel, USB DAC support which I don't think the Zishan has, and allegedly better audio.
>>39954964>OsmandHave you tried Organic Maps? I liked it for walking navigation, no idea how well it works for driving.>>39955429bottom right ascii art looking sus>>39955443>the aesthetic appeal of using e.g. pacman over apt, and such?I do feel pacman with AUR and easy to write/understand PKGBUILDs is somehow more comfortable than apt, especially if you might want to have the package manager manage a piece of software that's not in repos. Doing that with apt always feels dirty.>>39955513I would say that there's two kind of Arch users: those who use it because they simply like it, and those who use it because "look at me I'm so smart, I don't need GUI wizard installer" meme.I became initially interested in Arch because of the meme about how "difficult" the install is, and it sure was for me, a mostly Ubuntu/Fedora newbie. What was at first a fun exercise to getting everything installed, configured properly, afterward from memory and without the wiki, ultimately made me realize I've learned much more about how Linux systems are built. The availability of multiple valid choices to make my system run the way I wanted, with no repercussions, was very refreshing. For example, Debian and derivatives always went with GRUB, and replacing it with another bootloader would feel dirty, against what Debian installer thought is best. On Arch, there was no reason to feel like that when I was using EFISTUB, because bootloader (or lack thereof) was 100% up to me.And while this might sound like pointless tinkering, I find Arch's "choose your own path" to be more comfortable for computers I use daily. I don't tinker much beyond initial install, just piecing the system myself and afterwards it works. If something does break, I usually know why because I was the one who set things up.Gentoo is very interesting as a DIY system but I didn't feel a need to use source packages at all, the binary distribution has been fine for my uses. Tumbleweed while being interestingly opinionated on its own (yast2 a cute!), never really felt like I something to use long-term on desktop. I would always run into some software not being packaged for it, and Arch's userbase more often than not had AUR prepared.In my opinion Arch just suits me best on desktops. Debian makes me happy when it powers my servers and computers I use rarely (and where I won't want to install some software that in repos would be significantly "outdated" or not present at all). I may have a crush on Mint as sensible defaults distro but I'm not convinced yet (fork of a fork...).Anyways, I don't interact nor care with "Arch user base" online. The IRL people I've met who run/ran Arch were more likely than not smart at computers.>>39956200>it's realI would imagine that someone online already complained about how each and every Linux distro is unprofessional and professionals only use Apple® computers and operating systems. Because of a pony in kinda community managed package.
>>39957503absolutely incredible case
>>39941043>>39956403suspiciously similar, but cute hostnames.>>39956540>>39957225>LineageOSYou know what, for me Lineage without Google apps, using microG instead (provides push notifications and location without GPS) is what Android experience really should be. No fucking "sign into Google account", "sign into Samsung account", "sign into Microsoft account because we made a deal to preinstall OneDrive", "sync your contacts to Facebook", "accept terms of service this", "agree to full telemetry that", "agree to sending location data to <<<improve>>> services", and similar bullshit like that. It feels simple and complete, does not annoy me, just works. I can't imagine using stock Android, as provided by mainstream vendors on their phones nowadays.However since it's a volunteer project, there must be some random person spending their free time on porting and ensuring updates didn't break anything. Unofficial ports (those not found on lineageos.org) might have some broken stuff. Official ports can occasionally be a hit or miss, e.g. lower quality speaker audio on Samsung devices.But if it works, it just feels like what Android phones should be. Especially if you don't install Google services and use microG instead, this is how it should be. No bullshit, no data mining, just fucking works. But phone manufacturers must include Google's and their own bullshit to make more money out of the user. And then drop support after 1-2 years because gotta push new phones to market hehe.>the only things I would also miss are mapsI miss Windows CE car navigations. Those dedicated small computers you could unlock with a specially crafted SD card.>>39957326You're right. Only when you find something that works for you, it does just work.>>39957503>6tgood choice! almost runs mainline kernel>>39957541I miss my N900 and Maemo so much it's unreal.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=324t0R9NSZk - did you know it was even sent to some people in a Hackerbox? To open it you had to talk with it over serial connection. Such interesting idea.>>39957596alright, I miss Nokia and Symbian too.
>>39957752That silver phone is a prototype Meego linux phone so not Symbian. Probably would have been planned to ship soon after or alongside the N9. That being said S60 on touch screens got pretty decent near the end, but no one was left paying attention to see it.
>>39957752>HackerboxThe fucking pyrotechnics too, holy shit! I don't think that's been done before or since. And a free pet fox to boot!
>>39957793>Meegoanother lost OS.E7 was a comfy phone. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MdcJncYyqTI>>39957816Yeah, it was a very nice marketing stunt. I was too young to properly appreciate the N900 back when I somehow got one in ~2011, I didn't understand how it worked but it was "cool".
>>39957822>I was too young to properly appreciate the N900Same. To me linux was "the thing cool people have on their computers so they can paint with fire on their desktop and spin their windows around in a cube" so I didn't truly understand what makes linux linux at that time other than "woa it's not made by microsoft!!!" but I was really interested in UMPCs like the OQO, the concept of a pocketable gadget with an OS and software that you'd run on proper computers was just nuts to me. I thought these things were the future of phones, proper pocket computers. Kinda was, really wasn't! Man I miss my tech optimism days.
>>39957734>Arch's "choose your own path"This feels like such a meme considering they don't even let you switch the init system. Literally debian-tier.
>>39957886I wish there were more nice photos of these things. If you saw this shit back when it was new it was just impossible to not gawk at it. This was what the future looked like.
>>39957886>>39957901Same. even nowadays i still feel a bit too dumb to understand some thingsUMPCs were cool too. Easy to see why certain maid poster on /g/ is obsessed with them nowadays.Now, remember webOS before LG bought it for TVs? Palm Pre and such? That was a neat mobile system as well.>mfw peak mobile computing happened around the same time pony happened>>39957890Gentoo is definitely more flexible, no doubt. But since I don't have issues with systemd (in general), Arch is a good middle ground for me for the flexibility that I want.And honestly it's not even about some constant ricing or tweaking or stuff like that, this is simply the distro that annoys me the least in day to day use. Whether it's by not having to compile software I need myself in a directory somewhere, or by having reasonably recent software versions in repos, or by having excellent wiki, or by other means that I can't bring up right now because I don't remember. That's my definition of "just works", stay out of the way and let me do my stuff.Which is why I particularly like Lineage+microG on my phone, and Debian on servers. On Gentoo I'd probably find compiling everything a tad annoying, although it would certainly be fun for a while.
>>39957326just works on my machinebut yea I would know>>39957408It sounds comfy as hell why are you tipping me to not install it kek>>39957541>>39957596>>39957793>>39957901>>39958117>>39957886Man UMPC's are still cool, but they are just expensive as all hellAt some point in the last 5 years they sort of gained a lot of popularity from retrospective videos on YoutubeAnd ever since then they go for tons of money on the market. I remember stalking Ebay and Mercari a few months ago in hopes of finding a cheap one I can install linux on and rice with some ponyOne day Sony Vaio UX, one dayhttps://youtu.be/IyVmwusHiiM>>39957752>>39957816>hackerboxNow that is fucking neat! The steam though, noiceWhen you talk about LineageOS+microG, do you install the microG services after installing Lineage?I know there's a dedicated LOS+microG project that you can install but I don't think it's officialGrapheneOS was so reassuring, I miss it these days.>>39957734I'm honestly a GUI fag, but am interested in having a DWM rice one day>>39957503Nice case, at one point the actual color of the phone mattered a lot to me but now I think you just gotta have a good case
>>39958261>there's a dedicated LOS+microG projectthis is what I use, they take official (I think?) ports and run builds from scratch with microG applied at build time. You can patch microG onto a compiled or installed ROM but I've never done that myself.Or build your own Lineage+microG, they provide a convenient Docker image preconfigured to build it (even without microG). Did that for an unofficial port for one of my phones, was fine and fun.
>>39958117>Palm PreOh yeah everyone was raving about those. Looked awesome, Palm was always so good at UX, even Steve Jobs wanted to buy them at one point. HP giving up so easily felt hasty but in hindsight maybe there really was no room for a third player, especially one that was keeping the software to themselves or charging a per device royalty like Microsoft. It's just impossible to compete with someone who's literally giving away the software to as many as possible for nothing but a slice of that delicious user data, especially when they do everything in their power to make sure their services that a shittonne of people use doesn't work well on your device. The only reason the iOS closed garden worked is because they had an abundance of novelty beer drinking paper tossing fart noise making face morphing TaaP tAap RevEeennGEEeeeee apps for people to show off to randoms at parties before anyone else had shipped anything at all.Basically, Apple won because they know what normies want, Google won by being evil while looking like the good samaritan, using the guise of Open Sauce when and in ways it suited them.
>>39958261>It sounds comfy as hell why are you tipping me to not install it kekbecause installing android ROMs is entering a world of pain

>>39960342>I would honestly need to be held by the hand a little, I don't wanna brick anythingHere's the tl;dr:>find an unofficial ROM on XDA (because they enforce posting source code, instead of only the compiled zips)>get all source repos for that specific port (kernel, vendor firmware, device tree, common tree, etc.)>follow https://github.com/lineageos4microg/docker-lineage-cicd#build-for-a6000-not-officially-supported-custom-keys-restricted-signature-spoofing-with-integrated-microg-and-fdroidIn my experience a lot of Android modding is a "you've got to know how already" thing, there's not really much guides out there. But if someone else already did the port, and you just want to build it on your own with microG, you should be able to figure this out in a few evenings.>>39960257oh, that's what you meant by "kino"
>>39960257What command is it you use in term for that info screen

Any issues you have with it, any at all?>>39961136Holy canoly, that's a lotta cheese.What do you use the camera for?My handycam was passed down to me from my father, and I just taped one of his Canon's fisheye to it and call it a day. I used to use it for skate clips a few years back, and only recently brought it out again to record me and my friends experiences at cons

My CS thesis got an A.Not that grades matter but I'm still pretty happy.Now back to breaking my back hauling and installing lab equipment.
>>39961199>How's the pixel been treating ya? Any issues you have with it, any at all?Almost just works. Battery life is what annoys me, despite 2500 mAh remaining capacity out of 2700ish when it was new, I can quickly burn through it with Kuroba and Element (admittedly, that one has confirmed too high power consumption). That's why I wanted to get Pixel 5 with 4000ish mAh but they fucked up speakers in that gen. So I'm stuck on a phone that costs 100 eur used. It's a nice feeling to know that such cheap phone serves my needs so we'll.>>39961896Congrats, anon. What was it about?
speaking of grapheneos, is there some shit going down right now about it or something? /g/ seems to be having a moment about it
>>39962445From what I can tell the lead dev who has a history of autism threw a hissy fit so someone who provided a lot of funding pulled the plug
>>39962746Okay i'm still not entirely sure what happened but I think this is more accurate. Something something lead dev brought to light a flaw in another program, there was typical foss community autism backlash that he himself was too autistic to handle. Louis rossmann decided to make a hit piece about it, lead dev guy started getting harassed or was already being harassed but this elevated it so he quit. From what he's saying Graphene will still go on but he'll be in a less senior role
>>39962776No he's leaving entirely.Personally I don't think this guy deserved the shit for this but it seems he has had a history of being a schizo + spiteful egotist in the past that has sabotaged other droid roms so maybe it's best he stepped down. I wish he hadn't felt the need to quit entirely though, having a schizo on the team is probably good for security but I dunno how functional that team would be.
>>39962776Not sure about the timeline maybe he had already quit before the videos maybe after I don't know
>>39961250Fuggin' sweet, I was there! Well I showed up late, only snagged a picture right as everyone started to pick their plushies upThe quality genuinely looks great though, might have to consider upgrading mine someday>>39960151Very swag, anon. I wouldn't mind a site dedicated just for that honestly kek>>39961896Congrats!>>39962233Ah yes, I read battery life was an issue. I don't quite remember whether or not GrapheneOS gave any kind of improvement there otherwise, but I do remember keeping an eye on the battery a lotI honestly feel the same though, in the end I would much rather take improved security over better battery life, if anything it just helps me limit my smartphone usage>>39962445>>39962776>>39962793Fucking hell, well that sucks.

How many of you like the "new" keyboards on Thinkpads?Old keyboard chads rise
>>39966527Never tried one. I doubt the key feel is bad but the layout is retarded. If they can fit a 7 row keyboard on an x60 they can fit it on their current machines especially now they're moving back to normal aspect ratio screens. Not as bad as a lot of other manufacturers that insist on disproportionate arrow keys though.
>>39966529this person has been asked 'asl? cyber?' before
>>39963475Do you happen to use Deck portably for anything else than games? I'd probably miss a keyboard.>>39965462Until Derpian 12, Bookworm releases. 13 will be codenamed Trixie, so that's going to be a lot of fun if /pts/ is up in summer 2025.>>39966078Neat smol thing.>>39966527I've never had a thinkpad with old keyboard, only had the chiclets. I still think it's the best of all keyboards across laptops I've touched.>>39966529based, wired variant here, makes desktop computers usable
>>39966546I like the feel and layout on the classic keyboard, it kind of feels like an actual keyboard in a way lulThe keys on the newer ones, even when they're on laptops that aren't Thinkpads are just not the ideal comfort for me>>39966572I use it for homework and pretty everything really, if I would ever record anything too I would definitely use it as wellI'm typing this out while it's docked to a monitor and keyboard, it feels like a regular old desktop>>39966572>chicletsSo that's what they're called?

What would be equivalent of this in PIMP? (Pony Image Manipulation Program)
Here's a pony related project made my rebanehttps://twitter.com/rebane2001/status/1602453958831882241?t=k-zd6zPW8hEirmE3sVXJ8g&s=19

>>39923683Audio stuff is some of the coolest tech to me!It's neat how you can use some very old audio stuff every day, and have it working in junction with brand new audio equipment.
>>39968686Yam gear is pretty
>>39968686Quite the setup you have there, broWhat do you use all that for?Is there a different use for each device?
>>39968686Do not make a lain joke do not make a lain joke do not make a lain jok-HAHAHAHAHAHA>>39969113Each device is for playing different media, with the exception of the graphic equalizer and receiver amplifier, and of course the timer which i'm sure is just there to look cool.
>>39969176Oh that makes senseWhat would the equalizer an# reciever do? Amplifier also makes sense
>>39969289Receiver is for receiving AM/FM radio stations. Usually in consumer audio the term "receiver" refers to an amplifier with a built in radio tuner such as this one. An EQ is for changing the intensity of specific audio frequencies, which is useful for compensating in deficiencies of the speakers or room acoustics or just for fun.
Hello again, /pts/. A thread or two ago, someone asked me to make a Rarity watchface. I'm going to release this one tomorrow I guess.It's not "just Rarity" like you asked, it's more of Rarity-inspired watchface. I hope you'll enjoy it
>>39970115Gorgeous! I really like these slim lines.
>>39969087Yeah, I'm a fan for sure! I'm glad some of Yamaha's newer stuff looks more in line with their vintage gear too.>>39969113Well, media playback mostly lol. They all do different things; I'll just list each device and their use.P-520 turntable, it plays records!R-9 receiver, I use it as an amplifier and it handles all my audio inputs. Which includes my pc if I want its audio to go to my speakers.DT-2 audio timer, it's basically just a way to turn on/off everything for me. I do use it as a sleep timer sometimes if I want to listen to something while I go to bed. It's original and big use is to set up your audio devices to turn on and start recording at a certain time.EQ-630 graphic equalizer, I mainly just like it for the neato spectrum analyzer. It's also cool because the R-9 has a per-amplification accessory loop, so all audio through the R-9 goes through the equalizer before being amplified. That does allow me to easily play with EQ curves if I want to.KX-500U cassette deck, it plays cassettes! I also (rarely) do record a cassette of my own.CDX-520 cd player, it plays CDs!>>39969176Heh
>>39970115Alright, I'm publishing it now.You can find the watchface in Rebble Store by searching "Generosity" or by the link: https://apps.rebble.io/en_US/application/64752e2a04dd55076edf17ad
>>39969745Damn anon got that setup then!Who else owns audio devices like these?>>39970115>>39970330HOLY shit anon thank you so much that was me! You absolutely outdid yourself, but that seems to be your thingI absolutely love what you went with! It looks so fancy, I'll be wearing my wife with style now>>39970318Mann I need a good turntable myself, the few records that I own are very important to me so I'd want to play them in a way where I'd be doing the least amount of damageI got a basic plastic turntable for christmas a few years back, back can you or anyone give me a recommendation or pointers for a good quality turn table?Cassette players I have many of, and I'm sure I got at least one other of those devices laying around somewhere!
>>39971080If you're a tinkerer hit up local classifieds for a used one. It will likely require a new belt and some greasing. Look for a metal tonearm, real adjustable counterweight and a removable headshell, those are the typical hallmarks of a good quality unit. You can also get into comparing wow&flutter specs.Otherwise I think everyone just picks up an AT-LP66 and is done with it
>>39971080I don't like to appropriate things that I didn't do, the design was done by TheRatedRShimmer, 98% of my job was coding. It's the second time I did a collab with them, they have experience in making pixel art and they did it really great.>>39971613Hello there, I really enjoy my Vaio Duo 13 and I don't think if I'll ever find a replacement to it. Sadly a stuck pixel shown up yesterday and JScreenfix couldn't fix it :( . But overall this thing is amazing, if I'll recommend someone a laptop, that would be a Vaio or Thinkpad.

>>39974171>xubuntuthe only right Ubuntu.Anyone have a preference for flavor?
>>39975060eh, I'm probably very biased, but anything as far from Canonical as possible. First it was the "no snap wont replace .deb", then the fucking calculator took 7 seconds to start because it was snap.And now they are on Microsoft's payroll so great stuff is ensured to happen.I personally liked Bodhi Linux, but I stopped using it when they switched to classic Mac theme (feels pretty overrated to me)>>39975265I've been using it for a while when infty chan died to seed /pone/ but it always felt pretty sluggish to me (even on desktop). Also pretty high HW requirements, I wanted to keep running on rpi3 to seed some websites constantly but the pi was unusable with zeronet running. About two years ago I had a lot of problems with connections/crashing for a change. But I'll probably check it again, maybe it works better now.
Well, here I am looking for Pixels again. Why must 80% of the people selling phones not know what oem unlocking is, it makes finding a phone so much harder>>39975680>bodhi linuxThink I've heard of that before. What was the appeal?
>>39975827any word on why?
>>39976132money and lack of team members due to many dying if you believe the message they left on the site/t/ has a non-complete list of movie and show magnet links from the site but still, all gone

>>39975813>What was the appeal?It was my first distro I ever seriously used on real hardware so, back then, mostly the looks and the fact that it worked out of the box for me, unlike Lubuntu.It also outperformed Windows 10 so ridiculously that it made me hate win10 with passion.
>>39976221Wait really? You're telling me I can just by any pixel>>39976790Pretty based bro, what you doing there?

>>39977981Ah I see, all docked up thereWhat kind of linux is it running? I assume termux is a terminal sim
>>39978138you assume correctlyit's an apt-based system, so you can easily install whatever software suits your fancythere's a decent selection of packages, and nothing's stopping you from building your own binaries, e.g. picrel
>>39977666>Wait really? You're telling me I can just by any pixelYeah. OEM unlocking is a developer setting on pretty much every Android phone, some manufacturers just go out of their way to prevent it. You can root a Pixel without voiding your warranty too, unless anything changed in the past year.Google is very root-friendly, except for the kick in the nuts that was SafetyNet (though even that is bypassable afaik, at least on my OP7Pro).
I've come across a strangely familiar bus
>>39927874>arweave>>39975265>zeronetOh, thanks! These are nice! I've been sketching some ideas for something like torrent file but with git versioning support so that either original creator or other peers could update it. These two looks like the good base to implement that features on top. But maybe I'm reinventing the wheel and something like that already exist?Also, why the hay everything should be crypto-scam alike nowadays? (talking about Arweave) It looks like good concept, but why would you bring transaction/currency/fee mechanisms to it? Is it really not feasible to keep project (or storage) alive without appealing to peers' greed?

Does anybody have a recommendation for 3.5 in drive enclosures? I want something rugged, but everything seems available seems like complete garbo. Also what kind of pony sticker should go on a backup drive?
>>39985351Derpy, if you wanna tempt fate.
>>39985302>I like looking at Gnome version sometimes to see how it's going for them as main DE.Gnome is fine especially if you install some plugins like Dash to Panel and Arcmenu. I wouldn't say there's a reason to move to it from KDE or something else other than I think maybe the touchscreen support is better, but if you installed it by accident you wouldn't be upset
>>39985351As far as bare enclosures go, you're probably out of luck. Lacie did a USB external (with drive) that had some rubber stretched around it and called it "rugged" but other than that. I doubt they were any better than a standard WD Elements or whatever, I've pulled one of those apart to shuck and the drive is entirely suspended with rubber bumpers.This one here is at least made of metal but it doesn't look like it has any kind of shock absorbtion, https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/201274218232 but unless you can track down the original Chinese version I doubt this will be any use for you outside of AU, and even then I don't know what chip it uses. It could still suck. You're likely best off hunting for a shucked drive carcass, though I have heard rumours that the controller boards in those are sometimes locked to the original drive. You can't win!
>>39986860but other than that I don't know of any type of enclosure with or without drive that was ever "rugged".*Forgot to finish the sentence.
>>39985302>FIM and seeding pony torrentsNow thats what I'm talking about anon!>>39985310Waifu has been there from the start
>>39986860>>39986869Might just buy a chin-neighse enclosure and wrap it in foam tape then, thanks anyways
>>39985351I just keep buying shuckable WDs and use them in their enclosures if needed. Single drive enclosures are ok, but don't get My Book Duo, there's permanent encryption even if you don't set a password.Though they're not as rugged as those Lacies you can see in Apple computer marketing relatively often.>Also what kind of pony sticker should go on a backup drive?Derpy for sure.>>39986199I think the Gnome Shell on its own is quite delightful, especially if I had a 2in1 computer, but I found the other Gnome apps to be lacking. Case in point, the file manager resembling something you'd find on a phone rather than PC.>>39986860>WD Elements or whatever, I've pulled one of those apart to shuck and the drive is entirely suspended with rubber bumpers.WD My Book has rubber around screws as well, but the screw might transport bumps to HDD.>though I have heard rumours that the controller boards in those are sometimes locked to the original drive. You can't win!Or at least to the drive manufacturer. IIRC on Elements/My Books you could disable the "DRM" by snapping off one leg from a chip on board somewhere, making them compatible with any drive.
>>39987306>I found the other Gnome apps to be lackingYeah they are mostly just okay. I liked Rhythmbox but it has an annoying oversight or there's a limitation with GTK where it can't remember the previous state of the columns in the library. I want them to be specific sizes but whenever you re-open the application it resets them all to an equal size.
>>39987342I actually looked just them, that bug has been lodged with them since 2008 (!) and someone finally submitted a patch to fix it two years ago, but it still hasn't been merged. YOTLD = Eventually

If I connect Arduino to car battery it'll be fine right? Arduino wants 12V car battery gives 12V, makes sense to meAny recommendations for materials on learning electric stuff? I need something total retard level
>>39994806I'd think so. Nominal input voltage is listed as 7-12V on the spec page for the Uno R3, but the actual datasheet for the same says that 6-20V is acceptable. I'd be most worried about undervolting it with a dead battery. Looks like if you run it on less than 5-6V, the 5V rail wouldn't regulate properly and who knows what would happen.t. doesn't have one
