Alright /g/ I've been working on a side project, fitting and prototyping a ps2 slim inside the 5.25" PC bay on a case. I can make the disc drive, front connectors, and motherboard fit all I side with relative ease, allowing the unit to be taken out and put into other 5.25 bays with ease. Before I go onto actually buying a slim to neuter for this, I need some advice
Is there any way I can route the ps2 slim AC adapter through my PC power supply? Same regards to the av cables, any way I can mod them to run through my Mobo/gpu?
I have the ps2 slim connectable to my HDD via a passthrough ( for cfw, and iso loading ), and those 2 things are what I'm stumped on.
I'm no electrical engineer so I wouldn't mind some help.

>Same regards to the av cables, any way I can mod them to run through my Mobo/gpu?
Probably not. PC monitors don't play well with raw SD (15KHz) video, so your best shot is probably to have an upscaler/HDMI converter.
What's the fun in that

Converter passthrough eh. In that case I'll have to make a converter mount that fits one of the extendable back panel slots.
Check voltage and current draw, then just wire it from the PSU.
Just run the cable through, unless you feel like modding in digital out.
Sure hope not over USB.
How though. I don't understand voltage / current stuff and am incompetent when it comes to. PSU stuff

I might just make a digital out panel on the back.
iirc the PS2 slim needs something like 8V @ 4A max, so there's no way to get that from your PSU. If you want it truly modular (as in you can connect it to a SATA or Molex connector) then you'll need a 12V -> 8V transformer and some form of current limiter on board to stop it going bang.

There'll be no way to run it though your mobo or GPU, just get an old expansion slot cover and drill out holes for the connectors.

Lately I've seen overly long function names like initialiseGraphics(). Why not just use initGfx()? It's just as easy to understand, but MUCH easier to type.
Do you prefer using abbrevations, or do you stick with the full names?

Get out of my face, mr. burrito coder.

What did he mean by this?
Sounds like you got fired because you write shitty, unmaintainable code. I doubt it had anything to do with the bottom line. The unemployment rate for devs is like 2% so you must be really bad if you got fired.

I'm running out of room on all of my HDDs and am looking to get some kind of proper mass storage system with redundancy set up. If you have either a NAS or a file server, what did you pick and why? If I already have the hardware laying around to set up a server, is there any reasonable advantage to getting a NAS instead?

I bought a $20 HP desktop without a CPU and ram. I had a C2D and 2GB in my parts bin so I slapped them in there and now it works. It's running Xubuntu, seeding my torrents around the clock (shit's cash, just seeded 150GB over night) and it works as a NAS basically. I can ssh into it and it can even run high bitrate mkv files directly, running Linux gave a nice performance boost to it.

All my old hard drives can be used and there's space for more. I'm going to buy another 2TB drive for it.

Only downside is degenerate HP engineers made the motherboard just slightly out of ATX spec so I can't fit it in another case, I'll have to custom build one for it. But it works in its current form fine.

>tfw my samba NAS/seedbox/owncloud is just a 500gb hdd + a $8 orange pi
I only hoard music so it's enough for me, for now.
probably another downside: pulls 60W from the wall at idle
but mommy pays for electricity, right?

No, it's called a job. A job as in a real job, not part time at KFC. I can afford that extra $1 a month in electricity.
File server over dedicated NAS any day. A file server is as simple as having any low power PC, an HDD to store shit, and setting up a simplistic share. Doesn't even need to be samba based or anything complicated. My file server runs windows 7. I have 6 accounts on it (admin, family, guest) and everyone in my house is capable of streaming all my 1080p Blu-ray rips simultaneously without issue. As simple as right clicking on a folder or drive you wish to share, and setting permissions per user.

With 12TB of space for movies and music (6TB usable), the drives use more juice when running than the CPU does. (Pentium G4260 that sits idle 99% of its life). If this thread is still alive later, I'll take a picture of the little fucker who lives on my shelf.

>/g/ is full of pajeet-tier code monkeys

Who would've guessed.
If you are about "what language gives me most money" you are a Pajeet plain and simple because all of them think like this.

Also, arguing about languages is known as bikeshedding because people with absolutely no rigorous formal background in such things are able to jump in with their favorite color of Javascript or latest silly reimplementation of Lisp or whatever and waste a bunch of time.

It's like that story about how fast Nuclear Power Plants can get built. Since no suit wearing business guys understand it the engineering plans are almost always rubber stamped whereas anything else like software you have countless days spent listening to every jackasses input who knows absolutely fuck all but feels they have to bikeshed.

dont worry too much anon either you can program or you can't and most people can't. Programming is basically problem solving and thats an innate talent that people have not a skill. I mean sure you can learn syntax and maybe solve easy problems but you wont make any progress after a while. Do you honestly think coding challenges can actually help you improve?

What the fuck? If you're using dual screens they should be identical monitors. What the fuck is wrong with you? You're fucking dumb.

Is Windows Defender any good?

why do you need door locks when a burglar will just break a window?

Because you cant always think of every possibility and eventuality...and while an anti-virus may not be a perfect solution. Common sense + Antivirus is better than Common Sense alone
Yeah it's great. It detects my key crackers for pirated software!
Will do a little later
Any talk of anti-viruses without mentioning a site like the below is basically people spewing their uninformed opinions back and forth.


By objective measurements, Windows Defender is inadequate at protecting against threats and takes too much resources for what it does.

I personally use Avira, which seemed to place very well by these objective measurements. It's a little annoying, because sometimes it thinks that CMake-related programs that are created during project configuration are viruses, but I just turn it off when I hit "Configure" for the first time, then turn it back on.
Related to wind defender, what's the best option of changing firewall? As it is I can't use windows firewall to whitelist activity after I've used a 'block everything'. I haven't used a 3rd party firewall in years and am out of the loop. The goal is simply when on a VPN to block all connections/programs except utorrent, as it's a public network. Options so far have been tinywall and comodo.

>I'm also fairly confident that old fashioned key isn't used for anything
Actually, it is. It is used for a door inside my home. There's no other need to ever lock it but sometimes I need to make sure that the dog can't go around freely, so I could just leave it in the lock, but I see no reason to do so.

>Putting a NATO on an F91W
That is not a NATO, it is one of those two-piece straps that come with Seiko 5s. But eh, it is comfortable.

I use it to get a 4G connection if I need it, it was one of the cheaper devices (that aren't dongles) available for that purpose (+ I'd rather a 7" cheap tablet than a cheap-ass <5" smartphone). Plus for maps and such if I need them, and often I read the news on it as well.

>Wallets are too mainstream, gotta use a pouch
It is a wallet, one like this. Kinda worn out by now tho, but I can't quite justify a new one if it isn't broken.

>"Retro" phone. No really, not just carrying a modern dumb phone out of convenience because it works. Actually going out of your way to use a bigger older inconvenient phone to look edgy.
I just like it, okay?
Why would you EDC a film camera and not also carry film?
Why the fuck do you carry that old ass camera? Buy a Nikon SP, or a Leica if you want to look hip. Fucks sake that's so unnecessary it hurts.
But shooting medium format is fun and TLR:s are the cheapest way to do so well,

I think that is a digital camera. Anyway, carrying film might not be necessary if one is unlikely to need that many frames for random photo moments.

Some Norwegian providers will actually drop 3G before dropping 2G, I hear.

Is this a code16k or else?
How can I read it?
it contains a message:
"I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you’re referring to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I’ve recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.

"Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called “Linux”, and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project. There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use.

"Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine’s resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called “Linux” distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux."
