Technology developmennt is currently driven by random chance. We have stopped being able to put together elements logically to make something larger, because the whole is too much for anyone to grasp. The best thing we can do right now is work on AI to purposefully build technology we want with the shortest path.

You should ask software to advance instead.

i see jobs hiring for jquery all the time...almost nobody hires for vanilla js. most are looking for react devs though.

I see.

One more question, I see a lot of portfolios use wordpress to make their shit look good. Is that a common tool or is it only for plebs who can not code? I hear my non code friends mention it a lot.
>i see jobs hiring for jquery all the time
It's been a long time since I last saw someone "hiring for jquery". I wouldn't suggest anyone work at a place still actively looking for jquery developers, either.
>I see a lot of portfolios use wordpress to make their shit look good
Only if you're either doing small contracts or working at an agency . I would suggest making your portfolio using whatever tools the job you're applying for, is asking for.
jquery is completely obsolete with the newer ed of js.

wordpress is made for brainlets who are incapable or don't care to make their own sites with html+css+js. It basically gives you a template and lets you write the content in it.
You should use GitHub the second you write anything you remotely care about.

For learning it doesn't matter, but once you start making things that resemble decent end products you should be committing your changes from start to finish and hosting them for free on heroku/gh pages.

Not just as a best practice to learn how to host things and keep your code backed up but also to be able to show you made it and the process in how you made it will be documented.

I was looking to build a multimedia box that would be able to access Netflix/Hulu/Etc. and also play my DVDs via USB external DVD player . Was planning on using a Raspberry Pi model B, but I had serious doubts if the Base version has enough processing for that kind of thing. Would I be good with just the base model or would buying the B+ be more ideal.

Also general DIY thread w/ Raspberry Pi’s. What have you guys made? Radda radda

the actual fuck are you saying, shit isn't english in the first post. You do know the saying goes that "really understanding something means being able to explain it simply" right? if you cannot explain something well you don't fucking know it.
No I know the saying that some people don't get it and it's all about being complicated and esoteric simplifying something does not mean you can explain it it means you can give someone a simplified understanding there are plenty of people who understand physics it doesn't mean that they can simplify it and you won't do not understand lingual relativism and obviously you wouldn't understand moral relativism or there any man-made construct is 100% relative or that one person could understand something or in somebody else can't Maybe I am too anti charismatic an anti-social for you to understand

Mint is a buggy mess, but I really like Cinnamon. The mint devs are always pushing out unstable packages
What do?
Should I just install Xubuntu 18.04 and then grab Cinnamon from the PPA?

How about just install cinnamon mint and stop lying on the internet?
This, there even an option in the updater where you choose safe updates only. You probably picked the rolling release-like one thinking you know how to use a computer
>opening your computer up to security vulnerabilities because the mint team pushes broken packages
I think the option i suggested installs security updates only. Pick the second option and get the best of both worlds. Ive been using mint KDE for months and nothing went wrong and ive updated systemd, the kernel, etc. Stop lying

Some useful shit in here, namely Sun Studio and a big sunfreeware archive.

Still should have gone with Update 8 though, my dude. Oracle versions strip out the Star Office installation which sucks shit and there's really no reason to use them.
I don't even have a framebuffer for the thing, though, so no use in that.
Granted, opencsw was the first thing I got running. Then I installed Java 8 and... Forgive me, please, but I installed a minecraft server for shits and giggles. Best part is it runs it without a hitch. Maybe the 75W power consumption of the USIII is justified, because damn, this is one fast as shit system.

>I don't even have a framebuffer for the thing, though, so no use in that.
You can still X forward it, that's what I did for a couple semesters of university with my V100. Performance was better than you'd probably expect once the window was fully drawn, though some things would require patience.
One thing I've personally always wanted a nicer SPARC system for was hanging Sun Rays. Maybe not something you'd be interested in, but since good modern SPARC workstations are so non-existent (and any Solaris software that really needs graphical horsepower) they seem like a very appealing option to me. Oracle has jewed the shit out of the older versions but you can still find them in places, I think I found a copy at one point that I'll link just for the sake of spreading it when I dig it back up. The hardware is pretty cheap, too. I picked up a nice SR1 for like $30 I eventually plan on using with a system similar to yours.
>Then I installed Java 8 and... Forgive me, please, but I installed a minecraft server for shits and giggles.
That actually sounds pretty kickass, now I know what I'm doing when I finally get around to pulling a nicer SPARC box than a USIIe+.

There's a lot of other things you can mess with; databases, web hosting and intranet-type shit to support legacy boxes. One thing I always shove on my Unix systems is Mathematica, there's a 5.2 universal Unix image on the Macintosh Garden and I think a torrent for 7 around somewhere that should include SPARC binaries. That thing would probably make a kickass remote kernel host.

Arch is chair that you need to assemble (nothing wrong with that), Slackware is a comfy couch with your favorite colored bong next to it (nothing wrong with that).

What happened to laptops?
I bought a laptop in 2008, replaced it with a desktop in 2014.
Needed a laptop to carry around last year so I bought a new one.
Windows 10 started updating in the new laptop and made it unusable so I had to use the old one again.

>same amount of ram 4gb
>hdd 320gb vs 1tb
>resolution 1280x800 vs 1366x768
>screen is much worse, reflections even with max brightness

The new macbook type chiclet keyboard fucking sucks.
It feels as fast I feel like the only thing that improved is that the new one is more silent and thinner.
If I had knew it was going to be like this I would have bought an old one, wish I had fallen for the thinkpad meme.

>He bought an HP walmartop
Poor faggot
I can't check the model atm I don't have the new one with me but it was around +400€ the brand is lenovo. My old laptop was like 700€ 9 years ago.

I actually checked thinkpad prices and they are more expensive in europe, the cheap ones I could find needed repairs and I couldn't wait it was a necessity.
Another case of you get what you pay for.
So with inflation, your old laptop cost very nearly twice what your new one did. That's really not a market segment you want to be shopping in. Used laptops aside, ones that cheap are universally garbage.

So what is it, this?
Or even worse, one of these?
might be an ideapad 3xx

So how much are you supposed to pay to get a decent laptop? And what brands are decent?

Yeah, probably.
I've got 27TB directly attached and another 15TB or so in a FTP server.
I have an R6 and a corsair 750D each with 4 drives, super comfy and plenty of empty bays.

Also, 6TB western digital reds are now ~$30 USD / TB making it pretty cheap to scrap all your old 1-2TB disks and just get 2x larger ones.
Please redpill me on NTFS. I mirror all my data between two HDDs - i setup a scheduled task to sync to the backup hdd each hour.
Is there something im missing out on? I'm not hardcore, i have ~5TB of stuff, of which 1TB is very important (personal docs, receipts, work related, etc) and the rest is media id simply rather not loose.
