Eth is memory reliant and its memory usage increases drastically every epoch.

Bitcoins is simply a cryptographic hash rotation using SHA256; it can easily be performed using ASICs for very little cost and R&D to design/build.

You would need to be able to unlock the software and install software optimized for mining; including dedicated ACPI support and GPU voltage control to optimize the power efficiency of the machine. AFAIK it is possible to install Linux on the PS4 and PS4 Pro, but not yet possible on the XBOX One. It may be possible with a hardmod though, but certainly not economic for miners to do this for every console.

So I had a laptop that is semi falling apart after getting some good use out of it, and I decided that it would probably be worth a shot to try and repair it out of warranty since the laptop still is pretty fast and it would be a waste to just toss it. So I go and inquire about getting a repair. And I get the above message.

Is there any surprise why we aren't having more issues with electronic waste when it costs an arm and a leg to repair your old stuff? Why do they even charge this much?

I might as well keep on using this until the retro Thinkpad comes out and then buy that...
>>
>>61069811
Labor.

Do you have any idea how much time it takes for a single person to take apart a laptop after it's been assembled?

Chances are they aren't even going to repair it, just give you a refurb, and toss your old machine in the trash and call it a day.
>>
>>61069864

I can understand if they charge 300 dollars for parts but the other near 400 dollars is just way too excessive. At best I would pay like 150 for labor.

Background: I want a Ryzen system for gaming and also for acting as an Openstack VM server. Therefore, I want it to run both Centos and Windows, possibly Ubuntu, Arch and others.

Problem: Because Microsoft is run by assholes, they force to update Windows 10 when they say. When the upgrade happens it wipes out the Grub boot loader. Therefore, I would like to avoid dual booting.

Proposed solution: Build a OS image server and network book the Ryzen system off of the Network server. The Ryzen system itself would have no OS installed thus allowing me to boot to whatever OS I want whenever I want.

Is this a practical solution?

I have a Raspberry Pi that can run as a PXE server/Clonezilla server. However, this has only been use to install operating systems not to server the OS to another system.
>>
1. Project FOG would be a good server system to use.
2. It would be easier to just partition drives or get several drives to boot from instead of imaging at every boot. Imaging takes forever, especially if you don't have amazing internet speeds and an SSD (which you would kill with the constant writing anyway)

>>61067281
>I want a Ryzen system
your fisrt mistake
>>
>>61067281
You could just run windows in a VM and passthrough the hardware it needs.

This. No clue how well this works on Ryzen atm since when it launched it seemed to have issues.
>>
>>61069810
The latest bios update added support for gpu passthrough, but I wouldn't be surprised if freetards haven't implemented it yet.

Well according to my friend who heads a translation group, translating porn is easy. Most of the time it's just sex sounds.

The hard part is type setting. Blending in the translated text to make things look good.

This could probably be done in less than 5 years automatically. Maybe less than three if a big player works with translation groups. There are huge corpuses of translated porn and their raws out there.

Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but I want to switch careers into web development (I do something completely unrelated now), but I'm 35 years old (I can pass for 25 years old if that matters and I am female if that matters) and don't have much of a portfolio except for some school projects I did for an associate web design degree I finished recently.

I live in Austin so I'm in a tech city that's very competitive.I applied for jobs for about a month after finishing my degree and didn't hear anything and got discouraged and just settled for continuing to work my same old job which I dislike intensely. Now I'm ready to give it another go and hopefully stick it out for longer than a month.

Right now I want to redo my portfolio, continue learning MEAN / MERN stack and get some projects onto my github.

Am I just fooling myself? Should I look into a less competitive field? Am I too old to bother at this point and should just pursue this as a hobby?

Yeah, I'm regretting mentioning that since it seems like everyone's going to fixate on that. Just some guy once advised me IRL to not bring up my age because of ageism in the industry and advised me to be as vague as I can be on dates on my resume for stuff that doesn't matter.

I am not claiming to be good looking.

Do you need me to repeat the last post that I wrote?

>>61068681
Hey anonette, I don't know how it is in Austin, but I'm in >London and i got a web dev job after teaching myself to code for 5 months. I had several interviews and without even being too skilled, I got the job just by seeming very enthusiastic.

I'd suggest you join Angel.co, it's where startups search for devs and all my inerviews have been from there, and it's always been them that have found me and called me in rather than me applying so the website is gold.

You don't need a degree for web dev. Don't waste money.

Also, as a fellow /fit/izen let me say that this job might drive you insane if you're not used to a job where you sit on your ass all day. If you're an introvert, do not work in a startup. Make sure to check out that they have good toilets too, not even joking. My old job had one pathetic toilet right in front of a table of guys where everything could be heard, and no bins so you can imagine what blood week was like.
>>
>>61069338
Thanks anon! What frameworks did you focus on learning?

I will look into angel.co. I am an introvert, but I am ok out of my comfort zone. I don't mind sitting on my ass all day so long as I'm thinking - my current job has me sitting a lot but no thinking and it is awful.

I am probably going to still pursue a cheap degree though...it's a matter of pride at this point. I hate telling people I don't have a college degree.
>>
>>61069521
>What frameworks did you focus on learning?
I just learned HTML & CSS very well, basic vanilla JS and jQuery, and basic React. My React knowledge is very poor and I think i'll abandon it for Angular or something, but having experience in it made employers excited lel

>my current job has me sitting a lot but no thinking and it is awful.
sound like my old web dev job. was a shithole that was.

>I hate telling people I don't have a college degree.
Is this just american culture? Anonetter don't go in debt just because someone might ask you whether you have a degree. Who the fuck cares what they think? I've found that people are actually more impressed that i don't have a degree and managed to find a job in tech.

i can reccomend g4 on the basis that the custom development scene is somewhat existant thus you have nice stuff like android >6.0 and doze thus battery life is good. the screen is nice but as a isaid after 1,5+ years you might get burn in or stuff

also build quality is really good for some reason the screen hasnt broken yet

You're near $300 for a G5. You're better off getting the LG V20 or an HTC 10 at that point. HTC10 should even be cheaper and will give one of the best cameras on a phone you can have currently.

What are you using to black out your windows like that? I need to know so bad, seriously can't work unless it's dark in my room.

Can I get some help here?

Trying to dispose of two hard drives with bad sectors, but wanted to wipe them beforehand.

Booted into a Linux live distro ubuntu gnome, and did the DD command to write a bunch of zeros. But apparently, it stopped because it couldn't write data to the bad sectors and aborted the task.

How to force it to write zeros to the rest of the disk even if it encounters bad sectors?

Is there something better?

Also, what exactly is secure erase? can it be used on hard drives? Is it better than filling the disk with zeros?


Also someone said dban is deprecated in the current year because it was meant to be used on older technology such as floppy drives. Is it true?

Why do things like "ip encryptors" exist?
Wouldn't it be cheaper and safer to use encryption software on the device you want to protect?
>>
I guess this is some military stuff. And the military might not like encryption that is NP-breakable.

Also: encrypting on a lower level of the network stack allows you to use it fully transparently. (and you could transmit random noise through the wires to confuse wiretaps - for example openVPN only protects the contents of you transmissions, but not timings and payload sizes.
>>
>>61066739
Because devices such as PLC equipment were designed without encryption in mind, and when you get into real-time systems where you expect information at a determined timeframe every time, in order to get any sort of encryption it requires specialized equipment that can handle the job.
