You wasted money. Lots of it. Intel i3 comes wigh onboard money so that's okay.

No reason to get Corsair RAM. I would say you don't need 8 but demands are increasing and RAM is cheap anyways.
250GB SSD is super expensive, why would you even do that? A 500GB HDD would be more than enough and remarkably cheaper.
Don't know the case but you don't need much of anything beyond basic cooling given that you don't even have a GPU.
> onboard money
Onboard GPU.

Fuck i'm going to sleep.
>No reason to get Corsair RAM
It's fucking RAM. It's all Micron anyway, who gives a fuck what package it comes in?

>250GB SSD is super expensive, why would you even do that?
Because it's a SSD. You answered that in the question. He wants a PC that performs well.

>Don't know the case
It's cheap, fairly no frills but a solid case.

I am debating if I should get the Surface Book. I started working Help Desk/Technical/Customer Support about a year ago and all I do everyday is sit at a desk.

I noticed that my usage of my desktop at home went from hours to almost nothing; when I use my desktop it's strictly for heavy web-browsing and Photoshop...

That being said, I was wondering if I should drop the $1500 sheckles and the $200 sheckles for a Surface Dock (never expected to invest that much into tech) and just buy the Surface Pro.

Can anybody help me justify this M$ purchase?

This is how I see myself using the Surface Book:

1.) As a regular laptop for shit-posting anywhere with light Photoshop

2.) Tablet for comfy shit-posting and Photoshop using stylus

3.) As a desktop when I put it on my desk and connect it to a Surface Dock (connecting two 27 inch IPS display/Audio Technica headphones/Ethernet/Windows 10 lol integration for Xbox One) for when I want to do heavy-shit posting, course work, learning code lol, mouse Photoshop and proofing for hours, and Xbox One streaming.

What's the idiot-proof procedure to resize a virtual box instance?

I have AntergOS on VM, and I am near the storage limit (~8GB) I previously set up. I have lots of storage on my host PC, and I would like to change that 8GB to something larger, like 32GB.

I understand I need to call something with VBoxManage on my host PC, but what then?
Create a new 32GB disk and dd the old one to it, then resize the partitions.
How much bandwidth can tor sites handle? Is it bursty? Is there much packet loss?

I'm interested in Bitcoin mining with a rpi and a couple of block erupters but with all the reading I've been doing on the topic I've heard that it's not really worth it. If it isn't what would the bare minimum setup be for mining to be plausible. Or are there any alternatives that I should know about?
Unless you have a few million to set up a warehouse full of asics in china don't bother. It takes that much to be profitable nowadays.
There are many bitcoin profit calculators you could use but i think anything short of an entire room dedicated to it wouldn't make enough money to pay for the electricity you would be using.

Because "/g/", much like the rest of 4chan, is comprised of teens and young adults who think they've got it all figured out, while in reality, all they do is just the same stupid "rebelling" everyone does at that age - just in a "nerdy" way.

Hey /g/, I have the NZXT S340 case and I accidentally nicked part of my IO panel's cable going to my motherboard, thankfully it's just the Power LED cable, but is there anyway I can buy a replacement cable for this? I've looked around but can't seem to find anything, if not how should I repair this? It's severed in two but If I connect them very specifically it seems to work.
Any suggestions? Thanks.
Twist the wires and heatshrink it?
-solder the wires back together
-twist the wires back together
-remove the wires entirely and don't use the LED
-ritual suicide
-solder a wire onto the motherboard, shorted to the relevant pin, and run it to the relevant leg of the front panel LED
-use conductive glue to stick the wire back together
-go back to /v/
Did you try emailing NZXT first?

So it looks like I'm gonna have to use wifi. Is there any way I can get ethernet to my room without running cables all over the house or should I just get myself a good wireless card?

Just convinced my mother to cancel AT&T, they have shitty customer support and aren't worth the price. They were charging her $70/mo for 10/1, and she live in an absurdly popular city that's about to get Google Fiber.

Her bill was coming out to 130/mo almost every month and I couldn't figure out why, finally when I called to pay the bill, they told me that they charge $50 every time they shut off her internet, and they shut it off every month. She pays all of her bills on the 2nd with AT&T, but U-verse charges her on the 28th. She doesn't use the internet often enough to realize that they're shutting it off, so they keep tacking on these fees.

I ordered Cox, $48/mo for 50/50, 300 data cap, and a 2 year contract. They're going over to install it tomorrow, hopefully she has a better experience with them.

I wouldn't get it for myself, but she doesn't use the internet often enough to hit the data cap, and she doesn't have any options available until Google goes to her city.

If you're really desperate, and can't get wireless signal through your walls (concrete, steel, rebar, etc), you could connect a wireless bridge and wire it to your room from a somewhat more comfortable distance, but it isn't going to improve much. Wireless connections aren't bad nowadays, unless you need some seriously low latency, you won't gain much from having a wired connection vs. a wireless connection.
>free hotspot to strangers

To be fair, it's paying XFINITY customers and people who sign up for a trial. And yes, you can disable it in the modem - the SSID will remain but the connection will still be inaccessible.

I give you a C- on disinformation.

tfw you try to download a 2 gb file via your browser but it keeps on failing a quarter of the way into it.

is there a way to have it going without failing? I thought about trying a different browser but there is guarantee that will work.

Use a download manager or better yet, fix your connection.
