Why aren't manufacturers making thicc laptops anymore, are all laptops made for weaklings? I think there this is also the main reason why "gaming laptops" are so crap, thry try to be too portable.

It is an inch and a quart thick. Do you not understand that technology has gotten smaller internally?
I have a precision m4600 and I would buy its modern equivalent in a heartbeat
Smaller thermal package and overreliance on wireless tech and single USB ports means that it becomes obsolete faster.

>c-x c-o does autocomplete if you really want it. I usually don't want it.
>LSPs are crazy overrated compared to motions and regex.
The benefit of an LSP-powered autocomplete is that it tells me exactly what's available in a given context. I can do sneed. and it'll give me a list of exactly everything sneed contains, fields, methods, properties, whatever; nothing more, nothing less.
Other LSP features include stuff like going to definition in one keystroke (compared to regexing for the definition - make sure you don't hit any usages, and do it across all files in the tree even if you haven't loaded it in a buffer), or even just showing signatures and types on hover, which is especially valuable in languages with type elision (e.g. auto), since otherwise it's a fucking pain to make sure something is exactly the type you think it is.
This can be more or less important depending on language of course. But for some languages, LSP saves a LOT of time and effort.

The good news is that modern (neo)vim has LSP built-in.
One thing you're correct about is that overusing plugins is not the way to go. You don't need a fully riced IDE setup of vim or whatever. The syndrome of "oh, this plugin looks neat, I'll try to install and configure it!", followed by never (or barely) using its functionality, is entirely real. But there's a few essentials that ARE very useful, and sticking to pure default and boycotting all plugins isn't the way to go either. There's a sane middle ground.

That doesn't matter as much as you think. If you really are smarter than most CEOs you should be able to crush the competition in whatever low barrier of entry business you choose to compete in.

What do you think differentiates rich failsons from people like Musk who are tens thousands of times richer than their dad? People like you seem to think that you need a certain amount of money to hit an inevitable autowin trajectory that makes you a multibillionaire.

Out of the companies that are now working with an established ERP, very few would ever even consider a free software solution.
Also, usability doesn't matter to the people signing the contracts.

You literally just need to know the basic types, data structures, operations, how to define functions, and some basic built in functions to be 90% proficient in a programming language.
You can learn these in an hour.

>why i++ is generally better than i = i +1? if you didn't know, it's because the compiler translates the one with an add and mov instruction and the other with an increment instruction

1. put in a text file

3. encrypt again with 7zip if uou like
where is the passphrase for the 7z?
in my mind
why not use passphrase protected keys directly?
also how do you transfer keys between workstations?
this is the main reason why they suck for personal use. Imagine one dies, now you gotta remember everything its used for and reregister a new key

the idea is a compromised machine can steal your creds if you use it to decrypt the files on a flash drive. Not an issue for hardware keys

Man, my life has turned to shit. I have been being tortured for the past 4 weeks of my life by the absolute WORST Trojan/Malware/Worm/Virus I have ever seen in my life. I cannot explain how this is occurring but I can promise you that it is.

My website got hacked at the end of Aug. I was really dumb for letting my site back up into my personal Dropbox every day. My DB synced with every single device I owned. When my site was hacked, the hackers injected a folder with a ton of Javascript files and PNG files in it. They either injected it into my site through hacking it somehow or they got my password to my DB because at around the same time this happened, 60+ Million DB passwords were dumped onto the dark web.. Either way, they screwed me really bad because every computer I own including my iPhone, and iMac got infected.

I am now seeing remote access happening and I actually saw that all of my saved passwords that I had in Chrome and Safari (I now know I am an asshole for this) were uploaded to an unknown server. I then realized that commands were being run on my computer via SSH and it still happened even when I disabled WiFi!!! Everything I could possibly do to shut down my wireless connections, I did. Still happening.. What the fuck!? I then though that maybe the malware is written to still connect to my phone or any other device via bluetooth maybe? I have no answer to this...

I wiped my devices MULTIPLE TIMES! I even did a secure wipe on my laptop and let the thing sit for a whole day. The moment I installed the new OS, I kept seeing remote/sharing activity. I locked it down with Little Snitch and kept blocking connections I saw. I tried tracing the IP's connecting to me but I keep hitting dead ends. They come back to Ripe Networks and other cloud hosting companies.

Second hand refurbished phones aren’t ’crap’.

Not great in terms of performance, but Fairphones are reliable but a little outdated. Its an acquired taste though

After using NixOS I realized it was over engineered for my use case and decided to stop using it.

This, I thought it was based, but then I realized there was no reason to use it on my daily driver. Or even my servers that are managed by Ansible.
>I'm curious about other distros with similar ideas but none of them have the same traction.
There are others, besides guix? And of course guix is doa with its freedumb.
>Nix does nothing to help with this, because it can't.
It's a package maintainer job actually, that same options always work as expected.
If it's not possible, there will be a warning during the update.

Here's an idea for vscode or other editors. I jump to lines with ctrl + g + line number + enter, and sure it works, but I dislike having to use the ctrl + g command, something about it causes friction. I would like to do it with my mouse, but how? How about a number pad? Make it easy to spawn a number pad that allows me to click one or two numbers "quickly" to go to a specific line number. For example if I click 2 and 5 and 3, it goes to line 253. It would need a debouncer of 500ms or so. This way I can move to lines without leaving my mouse.
