Been using this baby for about a year and its perfect, to preface this i had horrible horrible wrist pain from years of playing fps games competitively (On a smaller scale ofc) So i bought this around last Christmas and have not looked back, it took a little bit to get used to but soon i was back to playing CS and Quake Live like the good ol days without any pain and i have not noticed a significant drop in my skill level. For browsing its Very good but don't even attempt to draw with this thing it's very hard to pull off anything that looks good but I'm not a good artist in the first place.

he's trying to say that it isn't more precise than a mouse however for some people it's more preferable than a mouse while being somewhat comparable
speaking from experience, trackballs > trackpoint > trackpad but mouse > * for both speed and precision, however you can't exactly use a mouse in bed or on the side of a chair or somewhere where you don't get a lot of movement

>>63860773
they're shit for fps just like trackpoints, trackpads, controllers, etc, are shit for fps, you might be able to get away with it in extremely low skill tiers but you'll be put in your place by anybody with a mouse even if they don't typically play fps games, pic related, blue is a mouse and red is an m570 on the same sensitivity and I don't pretend to be good at fps, the problems with trackballs (thumb ones at any rate) is that you *really* need to bump the sensitivity up to get any sort of smooth or straight lines but then you lose any fine grain precision which makes you useless
PS, trackballs might help if you already have RSI but if you want to try and prevent RSI you need to adjust your form/posture and maybe get lighter click keyboards/mouse, you should not be getting any sort of wrist pain/discomfort if you use your mouse normally, you should be moving the mouse similar to how you move a pen/pencil while handwriting, i.e., only use your fingers/hand for fine movement and use your whole/upper arm to get more broad movement

Help me /g/ my S8 is stuck on bootloading after restarting it and my 2FA keys are there, can I somehow dump them? adb doesnt work,also cant get into safe mode, recovery works and download mode work, how can Odin write to /sys? can I use same method Odin uses to read from /sys and read google auth keys?

They have no appreciation of the things that benefit them all day, but get irritated and indignant if it somehow doesn't work.

Too intelligent for botnet.

Weekends are the perfect time to make fresh backups and verify your existing backups. Storage failute happens to everyone eventually, it's only a matter of time. Be smart about it and make a copy of all of you most important files now, and avoid regret later.

But it's just as important that the backups you already made are actually valid. Check them, try restoring from them. One way backups aren't really backups.

And if you can, spend a few hours automating your backups if possible. Humans forget stuff all the time, a cron-job or a scheudled task won't forget.

For some backups solutions you can visit https://harddrives.always.fail/

That is all, have a lovely weekend.

Thanks. I keep the nas units in an out of the way place so there's little danger of them getting knocked around or water damage due to basement flood (never happened before but never know). I keep them shutdown when not in use plus the server and them are on a UPS. The 3TB external is kept on the main floor, attached to my desktop. It also stays shutdown when not in use
>>
>>63867261
That's decent but an off-site backup would be great too.

Also, remember that platter drives do not like the on-off cycle too much. On average a drive will last much longer when on all the time than one that gets spun-up and spun-down many times.
>>
>>63866789
Duh, of course it'll shit itself, it can only boot from one drive and since both have the same identifying number/whatever windows assigns it, then windows has no way of knowing which one is the "real" system/boot drive. Only way to work around this is to use Windows built in raid-1 and mirror the system/boot partition. But even that ain't seamless, upon drive failure, you gotta tell it to boot from the 2nd drive upon bootup (you get a nice little menu entry called boot from 2ndary plex). Really pointless for the home user, you'd just replace the dead drive and restore from backup image. But for business, the whole few seconds it takes to switch to 2nd boot drive is better/faster than swapping out the drive and doing whole restore.

Why the hell is it that public school districts are perfectly willing to shell out literally close to a thousand dollars of taxpayer money, PER STUDENT, on Macs, yet when they break by way of the student being a disrespectful little shit or through a legitimate accident, they cheap out so much on actually repairing them?

How come (particularly when just waking up or turning on), most of the text on my screen in the UI (like the dock at the bottom, etc) is replaced with boxes?

Then randomly it switches to text, then sometimes to boxes again?

>>63867405
See: man bash. Search for "Pipelines" and "REDIRECTION", both case sensitive.

more explained:
| is for commands. With, for example, "com1 | com2", it uses the output of com1 as the input for com2. Many commandline programs read from standard input (specifically, the "file" called /dev/stdin), so you're telling com2 to treat the output of com1 as a file that you want com2 to do something to.

> and < are redirections. I can't succinctly explain it, but the gist is: commands go on the left of > or <; files go on the right. >-redirections take the output (or error, if specified with "2>") of a command and put that output/error in a file. <-redirections take a file and use it as the input for a command.

Isn't that a pixart 3360? That's in the zowie mice too. I returned my 502 very easily as well so yeah they have good customer support. They just don't excell beyond other companies in any area beyond wireless imo, which I'm not interested in anyways.

>>63867153
I agree about the fk, I didn't like the shape either. EC series is great shape though for righties. I agree they're all on the same level, but the g903 gosts literally $130. I got my EC1a at a LAN event for $35 new. Pretty drastic difference, although zowie has been upping the prices too recently which is stupid
>>
>>63867218
Yeah, but G903 is overpaying out of the ass honestly, and I love my G900, but I agree it's overpriced.

But I'm looking for a new mouse now that I realize that my optimal grip for the G900 is retarded comfort-wise, and I honestly struggle to find a difference between most wired mice.

Best contender right now for me are G403 and G Pro, although I think I'd like the new Steelseries Sensei if it wasn't so expensive.
