I just got OS X High Sierra up and running on my X230 but I need to find drivers for a lot of stuff still. It's pretty comfy so far and runs pretty smoothly.

You can put the server, port, and channel in one url for IRC as well. It just needs its own client, which is completely fucking demonic to normies. Anything more than clicking a link and it working automagically is too complicated.

https://www.apple.com/ipod-touch/

The webpage for the iPod touch (the only iPod currently in production) still has Apple’s older design, such as thinner fonts and general layout. It also still lists iOS 10 as the current version of iOS.

With Apple neglecting the iPod touch’s webpage, is it a safe bet that it will be discontinued soon?

Eh, it was only inevitable. Smartphones already play music so for most people there's no reason for a dedicated music device. I wish Apple would make another iPod classic, though that'll never happen given that the future of music is streaming.

This thread is about the appreciation of whorology, as well as the micro-engineering and materials engineering required for fine watch manufacture.

Plan 9 thread

/g/ told me to install plan 9 in 2008 and I did. It was the best decision I ever made. Since then I have had a sane, productive, and elegant os and software environment.

Does /g/ still experiment with Plan 9? It's been a few years since I was on this board much, but Plan 9 is still my main os. General Plan 9 discussion thread?

It doesn't support images though or I'm doing something wrong? Also no Acme-like multi window support.
>>
>>63867626

The reason for the templeOS-style docs is the guy who did the ANTS stuff was literally manic and delusional when he wrote a lot of the documentation. The actual code and concepts are surprisingly sane but it hasn't been updated since the beginning of this year.

I like it because it lets you build a plan 9 environment from multiple nodes without assuming a static unchanging configuration of servers like the original plan 9 design does. I also like the custom rio and the hubfs persistence layer, which are independent from the kernel-level changes. I like to have a bunch of different rios in different namespaces, but let them all access some of the same hubs as needed.
>>
>>63867741

9front.org has isos and their FQA is excellent documentation. It is definitely the version of Plan 9 to use.

>>63867764

Plan 9 was really revolutionary when it first came out - in the early 90s. Since then, its useful innovations have been integrated into more common operating systems. Nowadays, it is pretty much for programming hobbyists, but that isn't a bad thing, it just won't replace mainstream oses for everyday use.
>>
>>63867905
>Since then, its useful innovations have been integrated into more common operating systems

In hacky, subpar ways. linux namespaces are absolute garbage still.
>>
>>63867794

It does support images, it just doesn't really work at all with 4chan. Works well with sites like the 9front homepage or anything that is just plaintext and images. It doesn't do multipanel acme-style stuff, true, but it does some nice things like if you plumb images to it, they will pop up in a separate window. I like it for things like browsing textfiles.com

Anon if the idea of news sites curating content for you is foreign and you aim to know everything I think I have to inform you of your failure.
And if someone posts a link to a news site you implicitly promote them. I'd rather have a link to Mozillas support page on this frankly.
Or even reddit actually.
Techcrunch has so much garbage on it. At least we can hold a certain attitude towards user-content.

>>63868083
Even if this weren't the case automatic updates without a peer review process (not feasible to have really) ruins it. You'll just push an update with the addon. Or push a malicious update directly.
Doesn't even have to be from the open source. Publish one version, present another.

The R5 looks like ass if you do bottom to top airflow and the GPU will block the airflow to the CPU cooler.

Meanwhile a Fortress FT05 is significantly smaller and yet comes with dual 180mm fans. FT02 is only 15% bigger and supports tripple 180mm fans.

Define R5 just has horrible space efficiency, horrible airflow and looks like ass if you open the top. Still looks meh if you leave the top closed.

Are p2p live streams such as ace stream safe?
7 replies omitted. Click here to view.
>>
>>63867313
>I doubt there is a single case for anyone getting into trouble because of ace stream. It's only used for watching sports as much as I know.
IDK, but people often get flagged by their ISP or right owners for downloading torrents, all it takes for TV channels who own football rights is to set a few honeypots and search for their content. then the users IPs are public....

depends on the country, where i live they actively monitor p2p transactions, it's only a matter of time until they flag live streaming.
>>
>>63866053

Safe from what?

Copyright claims? Not really since it's P2P and someone could easily sniff out your IP unless you use a VPN.

From viruses? Probably since nobody has yet to prove this program provides malware. Run the .exe in Virustotal.

Safe from getting v&. Not sure, since all of the streams were getting taken down for the McGregor/Mayweather fight. I had to watch some shitty Brazilian channel acestream.
>>
then again it's worth the risk IMO. in my country it would cost 60€ a month in TV channel subscriptions to be able to watch all my team's matches (i don't watch other games). i don't want to pay three different providers to be able to watch 12 different leagues. i only watch one club in one league.
>>
>>63867410
I doubt there would be enough users for them to care about that. Relatively speaking, watching illegal sports streams isn't popular and p2p is only a small fraction of that.
Also where are you from that isp's monitor p2p?
>>63867452
>Safe from what?
Viruses, hackers, etc.

>>63868011
>where are you from that isp's monitor p2p?
in france, it's the government that monitors P2P and ask ISP to hand out IPs. got flagged once downloading mp3s (three strikes then prosecution)
