Looking for dumb phone recommendations. Something small, durable, can call/text, not too expensive, works on USA GSM bands.

I love the Punkt but the price point is goddamn inexcusable.

Won't work on US bands. The vast majority of newer bar style feature phones won't work in the US. Punkt phone is nice but it could use a camera. Check out BLU phones, all US compatible and really cheap. Haven't used any, though.

Hey guys im a uni student in need of a budget as fuck phone with the best camera available...gotta document all my designs and stuff.

I was leaning towards a meizu m5s...honestly camera and battery life is my only priority...I dont game or anything. What do you guys think would be the best for under 250 USD?
I wish I could get it. T-Mobile doesn't carry it
Maybe you should just get a cheap camera with infinitely better quality and options for a much lower price and then get a cheap phone with decent battery life separately.

That's more about Redhat.

I don't think that link is a good substitute for an answer.
>systemd kill background processes after user logs out
This behavior is configurable yet they're misrepresenting the news clickbait style. That kind of sensationalism always makes me wary of a source.
is it true that systemd can brick your mainboard?

I remember there was a file in /dev/ that you could write to that would brick some mobos. Is that what you mean. I think that device file was presented by udev so I guess you could say systemd had something to do with it.

Context: a windows 10 update caused people to boot up with this screen, bricking some peoples' computers, while others made it through.
The Apple MacBook Pro with Retina Display doesn't have this problem.
The Dell XPS 13 Dveloper Edition with InfinityEdge display doesnt have this problem.
Why does one have a wang and the other doesn't?
The response was to switch to GNU/Linux where your rights aren't infringed upon by crapware.

Robots are good at other things than humans.

But things all humans are good at, are pretty much worthless skills because everyone can do them.

Too late. I'm accessing your mainframe right now.
My IP is, come at you fucking nerds.
if your ports are closed (or your ISP just tells all incoming connections to fuck off), nothing
if you have common ports open (http, ssh, that sort of thing), you risk getting DoS'd at the least
if someone really doesn't like you and you're running something with known exploits, you could just get attacked by some script kiddy -- but this is fairly unlikely (also, there's risk just being on the internet in general in that case)

Jesus Christ. This shilling is unreal.
it's fucking true. IEMs are fucking morons. And wearing these deep-insertion IEMs outside is the most dangerous thing ever and you can get yourself killed because you can't hear shit what's going on around you.

And why on earth would anyone anally insert that shit when they're at home when you can put headphones on that sound 100x better and are 10000x comfier?

Post your component list, rate other anons', and ask questions in general.

Always state the purpose of your PC, your budget, AND YOUR COUNTRY if outside the USA.
If you are asking for improvements, clarify whether you want to lower price or to improve specs or build quality.

Assemble your parts list; built-in price comparisons by vendor and a compatibility filter.

>To activate the Description, select build from sidebar then click on the title over the parts list

Have a budget, but don't know where to start? This will recommend you a parts list based on price.

what res?
what are you playing?
do you want 60hz, 100hz, 120hz, 144hz?
are you willing to pay Nvidia tax for GSync?

these are important questions that need answers first

I actually don't mind in terms of refresh rate of response time, as long as I'm always above 60fps. I'm looking for the best deal. Monitor prices are fucked in Australia. I've never delved into widescreen gaming before.

Buy GPU and cooler right now? Almost did at lunch, but got cold feet.
AM3 or FM2 for home server? It's only $100 difference incl mobo and memory.

paypal me all of yours.
Now that I remember I think I bought like 12 or 14 shares and sold half about a year ago.

I was thinking there was no way I would've spent $10 commission on $12 stock.
That's still tiny... I don't do trades of less than $500, usually $700, because $7 is 1% of $700 that eats into margins.
Yeah, I should've copped much more but I was a newfag to stocks so I felt like I had to be careful.
Sure you bought it at $1.888, but then you sold it five months later at $3.40. Which is pretty good, but not relevant eight years later.
