so it has nothing to do with social engineering. People who were here prior to mlp that enjoyed it as such coincidentally started spamming traps and homosex agenda.
Not like the stupid amounts of queer rights and other mental illness we've fucked with over the years would ever hold a grudge enough to start a psyop against us.

Just get the Zotac AMP Xtreme 1070 and put it under water. Cheaper than 1080 by a mile and very good performance for a single card.

if your use case is 1440 or 144Hz and the difference is worth the price do it

Why the fuck is removing a desktop environment from literally any Linux distro so fucking annoying? I should not need to reinstall the entire OS just to clear a desktop environment from the system, no matter what package manager you use, it is never just as simple as "remove gnome" or whatever there is always some lingering mass of related packages that will not be removed without explicitly removing them one-by-one.

I just want to be able to install and uninstall desktop environments as easily as other software packages, why is this so difficult?

>why would you reinstall your os to change DE when you can just choose your DE during installation?
anon, i...
The real answer is because the DE in effect IS the operating system. Linux is a kernel, the DE should provide everything else from graphics libraries to utility programs. You're basically asking your package manager to knock down the exterior walls of your house so your roof can float above the foundations.
You have to install and uninstall the meta package for the de. Such as ubuntu-desktop-gnome.
Might also be useful to check if apt is removing suggested packages.
Of course you can always copy the installed packages list from the logs and roll back the operation.
>why is this so difficult?
It isn't, you're probably just retarded. I went from (standard) Unity to Gnome to LXDE to just Openbox to Cinnamon to Xfce to just openbox again. No problemo here lad.

can you embed exploits in (a) printed page(s) of paper to be scanned?
9 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
Yes. Mostly you have drivers encapsulate your data well but you can modify the printer driver to send erroneous messages to the printer. Varies a lot what you can do but when that is in place (or you found a hole) you have made an exploit in printed paper.

depends on the scanner
Yes. Chances are the injection won't work though, and buffer overflows won't work either.
It's a super long shot, since you're basically betting on a stupid bit of code somewhere in the scanning software pipeline that burps up a buffer overflow from a specific number of characters or something.

As for injection... input would be sanitised simply to make the scanner functional.

Doing this blind is nearly impossible. But if you had a copy of the code for the entire process then you'd probably be able to find something.

How am I butthurt? I really ain't. I am not running away, I've fucking tried. I have spent hours trying to understand, and got lessons from my uncle (Who's great with Math). Plus everything that was taught in class, but nothing sticked. I just don't understand.
I know that I need it, it's important.
Thats what I was worried about, I ended doing a Cert 4 in I.T instead, got a job for 2 years then applied for a post graduate based on work experience, got in and have one subject to go, all have been easy as shit, no proofs mostly pracs.
its the good shit

Thanks, I'll check it out.
Yeah, unfortunately this is true. I get A's in every single one of my courses except for the math ones. I pass most of them, but I could do way better if I did any of the homework. I've only failed linear algebra so far, but when I retake it I'm going to have to do the homework or else I'll just fail it again.

>Skype (forced to use this because colleagues use this for quick communication across offices instead of email / phone)
>mpv so I can watch videos in my down time and listen to music
>Eclipse for work-related programming
>nano for text editing and small programs / scripts
>nethack, supertuxkart, anonymine for downtime
2) Eclipse just werks for me. Privately I use nano for small things up to ~500 lines, gedit for larger projects and LaTeX. Compilation / execution is done via the terminal (gcc, python, octave, pdflatex).
(1) A fuckload
(2) Nano

So I stole a load of miscellaneous laptop ram from my work place. And I'm trying to use some of it to upgrade my laptop, just cus.

The issue is there's no information that I can find that will tell me what ram is compatible with the motherboard.

Model: asus f555ya-xo047t

All stock and standard but I cannot for the life of me find the necessary info to figure out if I can put new ram in it.

Also, bin lurking for a decade. Succ me off with your bum cheeks.

Hello I am a Debian Jessie user and avid web/game developer. I made my goal today to learn how to stream to twitch.tv and was wondering if anyone here has had any success. I see that OBS is on Debian sid but when i try upgrading to it my system brakes and I have to reformat my root and go back to Jessie. I don't see any way to get OBS on Jessie and am starting to lose hope. Do you /g/ents have any suggestions?

That appears to be the error. I suggest applying your google-fu, because this error is not one I'm familiar with.
yah I thought that might be the case it looks like it something in the build instructions and not with our workaround. im going to look into it using bing and see if i can get some proggres if not im going to go back to trying to get that stretch partition to work.
