I would say get a mech keyboard and lower your monitor, it's not good to have it that high
Not him.

wrong and wrong

Memechanical keyboards are the biggest bullshit I've come across yet. I had worse typing experience on my cherry mx browns, than on my Logitech Internet 350, that cost four times less 8 years ago! And monitors that are higher make you look up, which makes you sit leaned back, and with a straight neck instead of being hunched.
Decided to reinstall windows because I was getting some weird errors trying to install something and the next day my webcam started freezing randomly and I was getting audio skipping, so fuck it. Took about 40 minutes to reinstall, another ~60 minutes before everything was configured right back to how I had it.
>cherry mx browns
dont even need to keep reading to know you're retarded
Oh, you mean I'm retarded for picking browns instead of blues for universal use, gaming included? Yea, I must be then, but then so is everyone who ever wrote "get something in between blue and black, which would be the brown"...

Realistically speaking, could the NSA actually just go into your computer automatically and look at your webcam/listen to your microphone in under a hour?

don't they have back doors built into all major compilers now? It doesn't matter if you have the source code. As soon as you compile it it becomes a botnet.
I think you blow it out of proportion. The NSA employs a shitton of people, many of them would know about those backdoors and then go on to work in private sector. People talk, shit gets used, this just doesn't sound realistic.
there is an organization that will pay you to be sterilized if you're a drug addict.

What's the difference between "features" and "bloat"?
5 replies omitted. Click here to view.
If that same feature was done with less resource draw before than what you are using now, it's bloat.
Everything is a bloat.
>This is totally unneeded. I know the volume has gone down; I was the one pressing the button.
It's a graphic that only shows the volume is being turned down, now the level?
>Man I wish I had a thing that could do this
>Man I wish this thing wasn't here
Bloat usually refers to unchecked "feature creep".
It's when a software project starts adding more and more features that nobody asked for and it negatively affects performance/usability as a result.

nope. The bottom row is non standard so you can only use the keycaps on corsair keyboards. Also its not all mechanical (pic related). Its a pain in the ass to desolder every switch. Just buy them individually on places like mechanicalkeyboards, techkeys, massdrop, etc.
I'm not talking about keys set aside for macros via software support. I'm talking about easy access, on-board macroing hardware that can be applied to ANY KEY(hence the name, "anykey") extremely rapidly. I have around ten keys on my keyboard remapped, and I remap the tilde, tab and caps lock keys constantly when needing to use a symbol often that is awkward to type, extremely quickly and easily. it makes working objectively faster, and I'm not sure why it was abandoned as a standardized feature.

I got it in black.

The real photos look better than I expected. I just wish you got two each of the special 1u keys.
If l like blues yet want something that feels beefier are greens worth it?
Because it's a stupid gimmick. Generally any program will have it's own proprietary macros.

M50x is good normie-tier bass, boosted without being beats level of retard.

I still think it's shit however because I prefer flatter headhpones.
If solo 2s are nigger trash then RHA MA750 IEMs are nigger tier too. Very similar measurements so anytime MA750s are mentioned I "will" tell them they're nigger boomy shit.


Im getting these
Are they any good?
Retard, I don't even use my m50x, I was in panic because anons in the previous thread spout shit like people are deaf when they think they hear a neutral sound from them.

Aside from that, I also heard when you have flat sound, you can a add a lot of bass/lowend almost as beats bass level emphasis. Are you by any chance using these tactics?

Also bass are not only for normalfags, it's all depend on if the bass is tight and good on certain tracks. The tracks are the ones who defining people, not the bass.

No, not the std lib (which is mostly a la carte from C anyway.)

I mean there's not a good package manager, and the system for "importing" other lua code is pretty poorly defined. So you wind up just doing it all yourself, or leaning on the host language (as intended, ofc).

>in anyway basic

No, Mike Pall is a wizard who wrote the interpreter in x86 ASM. In no way is it "basic".

Well, the 'barebones' implementation is what I meant.

Sorry, it's 2am, I'm drunk and half messing around with torch in background.
I still don't see what you mean. LuaJIT has more features as well.

The official libraries take up less space, but run slower. I would call them the "barebones".
the core is good but npm and package usage in general for nodejs projects is cancer
>not a good package manager
fuck that shit
why does every language have to have their own package manager just for that single language now?

now all projects depend on dozens of small buggy third-party libraries

Still haven't seen this.
I remember /m/ used to have edit wars with an autist called Ryulong. Even after he was banned (because of Gamergate edit war), he still had his cronies revert everyone's edits on Kamen Rider and Toku articles.

The thing with wikipedia isn't "SJWism", but rather that admins are a cabal, and they decide what goes in what doesn't. Also they all have "pet pages" that they never let anyone edit. Wikipedia has less and less editors every year because the people higher ups keep shooing everyone away.
I edited some pages on the space program, and I had a whole bunch of stuff I wanted to add to the Apollo 13 page because it was a little skimpy, but oh wait, I can't...it's permalocked because of vandalism.


Shush goyim there is no such thing.

This is Windows 10. Say something nice about it
27 replies and 5 images omitted. Click here to view.
- The lockscreen wallpaper selection is okay
- The idea they had for the start menu tiles is decent
- Improved aero snap is slightly better
- UWP apps and the new taskbar have an alright design

Everything else not listed is either terrible, negligible or identical to previous versions.
I have 8.1 on my laptop currently, is it really the current top for gaming? What happens when d12 or whatever is w10 exclusive becomes mainstream for gaming?
Holy shit that is ugly.
So what exactly is win10 spying on your pc?
The design is not bad, but the whole product looks incomplete, unfinished.

And OP's post shows maybe the worst rendition of a Windows 10 system, in which nothing is customised properly (huge taskbar icons, cramped corner start menu, ads, using default accent colour instead of customising your tiles, keeping pinned programs on your taskbar which is unnecessary, you can just create your own custom toolbar, having suggestions turned on in the start menu, etc etc).

Windows 10 can get a lot better with customisation and by disabling ads, telemetry and everything that ties it to Microsoft.

That being said, it's still an OS that is not 100% stable, can still occasionally crash even on systems with good specs.

All software has vulnerabilities, by design or implementation. They're just not discovered yet.

>Not using classic theme restorer
I'm running the latest and my firefox looks good enough.
Look up Danoct1. Unpatched OSes are dangerous news.

Just imagine if Google still had the version of Bash with shellshock on it. Or if they didn't patch dirtycow. Would you feel safe putting your password in their systems?

And unfortunately, there are more and more permission escalation exploits happening every single day

Both of those are memes.

By the same logic opening another cmd in cmd is also an exploit. All forkbombs are also "exploits".

Calling these bugs exploits is fucking stupid and always has been. DirtyCow was largely just unpatched bugs when it was discovered. Nearly all of them require full admin access too to cause any real problem.

Unfortunately a while ago journalists realized they could get media attention by announcing the new big super virus is this, it's super scary and it'll destroy everything.

You do the slightest bit of research on them and 9 times out of 10 it's a bug that's been filed as a CVE for memes.

Every dumbass security analyst/tech journalist is just short of saying "Check out this new exploit, open your browser and type in C:\ .. you won't believe how easy it is to get into your system"

Soon enough people will be saying "rm -r f /" is an exploit. In fact that massive twat Tom Scott basically said as much when he covered shellshock

-nvidia shill
-parrots completely wrong information about water cooling from google
-PC is everything wrong with modern PC gaming

Guy is a shithead that is perfect for normies/ignorant redditors.
I remember I stopped watching him when he did the fermi/kepler/maxwell comparison and then claimed he wouldn't do AMD because any AMD card old enough to fermi wouldn't work anymore.

Sometimes I think about starting a youtube channel up but there's no interest in a channel that accurately tests things. Especially, with water cooling. There's a handful of extremely smart people doing some neat videos about the subject but they get under 10,000 views in 5 years.
How's their presentation and personality? Quality content can achieve success if it has presentation and charisma on the level of successful Youtube celebs.

What do you /g/uys use for cloud backup?

It's for some business files, it's not going to be a lot I assume, so I want one to start that gives me like 10GB free, then options to upgrade.

been looking at Jottacloud, MiMedia and iDrive anything better?

-10GB between at least 3 computers.
- Backup, not storage. I want this to be automatic for my bro in law's home PC's and he isnt all that tech savvy.
- little to no ads and pop up messages. as light and unintrusive as possible
- obviously security is necessary but not storing cp or anything just need something reliable.

Cool, I'll get on that.
>I'd love to be proven wrong
I'd like to be proven anything, myself.
How did you try it? Do you remember which distro/version?
Currently using Ubuntu (Unity) on my laptop. Tempted to sign in, but if it's shoddy, I'd rather not mess anything up.
Just reading, easily finding the conclusion there's no official Drive solution from Google for linux.

Haven't actually field tested myself.
All right, thanks.
Well ECC and cheap doesn't necessarily go well together.

Any hardware will work but consumer hardware usually consumes much more power than necessary.

You could look into mid-range dedicated servers. Then you'll have better bandwidth and fixed costs.
