But the point is that you're actually paying with something (time) to download releases you don't even really want.

I've probably had accounts on more trackers than most ITT, but have since deleted or let every account expire.


So unless you

>a) are an American with garbage tier Internet
>b) think you somehow want shitty remixes, VA albums and pointless re-encodes

I really don't see the point to be on a private tracker in 2016. Shitty pre-times. Shitty scene. LESS secure than public trackers because of repudiation (google piracy cases).

Don't buy samsung and use a custom rom. Samsung is a dick about it and your camera might not work or whatever the fuck they figured out they can fuck you over with this time.
Especially on an edge device, why would you get a device with a unique feature only to destroy that feature with a custom rom? Get a Motorola or Nexus or maybe LG or some shit like that if you want custom roms

It's not that simple. You're proceeding from the erroneous assumption that all unemployment is caused by laziness. Sometimes there aren't any jobs available in any meaningful sense - all the jobs in your area require skills you don't have or have too much competition, and jobs outside your area are too far away for you to actually make any money from.

Welcome to /fglt/. We are always open to users of all levels, including absolute beginners.

There are four ways to try GNU/Linux, you can:

0) Install a GNU/Linux OS on a VM (Virtual Machine/VirtualBox) for "safety purposes"
1) Use the Live ISO directly without installing anything, that way, you can get a "full GNU/Linux experience".
2) Dual-boot GNU/Linux with Windows/Mac (recommended if you want to learn more about GNU/Linux)
3) Go balls deep and overwrite everything with GNU/Linux

Before asking, please search for answers to your questions in resources.

Please be civil, notice the "Friendly" in every Friendly GNU/Linux Thread.

So 2 questions (inb4 not ur tek support, go fuck yourself, I help people all the time here).
1 - How do I get into the UEFI from a boot loop? It has that stupid fast boot shit on and goes straight into the post, doesn't wait for a F8 prompt?

Surprisingly, this is what I use on both my computers.

How do winfags solve these issues? Every single computer I've seen comes with fast boot enabled so I can't be the first person to find this.
>>
Can't you change the settings in the o/s?

unplugging the boot drive from the computer should get it into UEFI and then from there I'm stupid as to what you should do.

remove the battery from the motherboard, let it outside 10 minutes or so, and then insert it again

that will reset everything to 0

Not the same poster but someone has never been to a Lanparty, organized competition, or even a net cafe. Perhaps you should get out more?
