>Everything with an io TLD is hipster trash.
I don't understand the hate.
.io is considered to be a general domain and search engines won't fuck you over by assuming a location like some other domains might.
.com/org domains are all already taken. If you come up with a short name for your product chances are that the domain is already taken.

>>63439692
>GitLab
Not him but GitLab uses an order of magnitude more resources.
If you just need something simple to host your code without all the advanced features then gogs/gitea are good solutions and they'll still run perfectly on the cheapest vps you can buy.

In total around 300 USD with shipping and now I have a machine that can remote to my PC and work for ~30 hours and with a normal keyboard.

GPD pocket costs 500 USD, can't last for more than 7 hours and has shit keyboard.

Well you can find some that they do get charged and have a usb port available because they have both usb type A and micro usb. Also about the linux support you are kinda right but the rpi3 is so underpowered that its really worthless for any job other than ssh. So you get a relative better value for a better price and more portable too.

Misunderstandings about "hacking," probably. Played a game once that just dropped Linux support entirely because they thought that's what all the hackers were using. Game population fell by half overnight. Turns out it was just script kiddies with cheat engine.

I mean, seriously? Games are no longer an excuse: Steam has a huge library of games that run on OS X and/or GNU/Linux. You need to use a Windows-only program for work and it doesn't work in Wine? Just run Windows in a VM for that program and nothing else. VirtualBox is free, easy to set up, and performs well. You don't understand OS X or GNU/Linux? You didn't understand Windows when you began using it either. Learn. It's easier than ever.

There is absolutely no reason to use Windows anywhere other than in a locked down VM today. It's an annoying, privacy-invading, ad-filled mess that you choose to pay for. It has a horrible track record for security. It should be considered a liability, not an asset.

comfiest OS, is that not enough?
>>
>>63432121
VR support for one. That and, though the game libraries are large on Linux, it still misses quite a few games I play, even with Wine.

I find myself using Ubuntu on WSL more than anything native Linux these days anyways.

>>63432255
I tried this, and it almost worked. Whenever I tried installing graphics drivers in the VM, the VM would just reboot itself halfway through. It's nice in theory, and I'm sure it's great for those who got it to work, but I couldn't.

Pretty much because of Logitech profiler. Although no game I've ever installed on Linux has worked, so that's a thing too

There are still hundreds of thousands of games that only run property on Windows.
In what way is gaming not a good reason to use windows?
Meanwhile there is literally no good reason for me personally to use anything else.
So I get all the productivity I want and all the fun I want and can customize my hardware however I want.
Why would I use something else when I get everything I want and more with what I am using?

Not really, most of the Jews were either expelled or exterminated by the Inquisition.

Yes and no.

The underlying ethical principles behind it are sound and sane and should be defended by anyone claiming to love liberty of information.

Politicians in America are fucking retards the higher up the ladder you get (especially in STEM matters), so it's not possible for enough of them to get together at a high enough level to put pen to paper in an effective means of regulating how ISPs are going to dole out parcels of internet. They can hide behind jargon to do whatever they want; capitalism doesn't ensure minimum price for the consumer by any stretch of any imagination, but it at least ensures excessive bullshit will be noticed and called out. It makes sense for ISPs to throttle certain things on certain networks and certain platforms, as there are billions of people around the world accessing the same backbone infrastructure every second of every day. For the sake of logistics, they have to enforce some degree of intelligent self-regulation.

The underlying issue is one of free speech and should be where the focus remains; everything else is smoke and mirrors to give corporations fiscal quarters to play with rates while politicians bicker about things they don't understand.

In the absence of a free and open internet, tech hobbyists and enthusiasts should seek to create an "alternate internet" under the auspices and custodial care of the free software movement that at least creates a radio network for sharing information and learning materials for people interested in sharing cybernetic resources and wisdom outside of official corporate channels.

Actually though, it's only communism in the sense that state healthcare is communism (if even that). Criticise net neutrality for what it is, rather than what you associate it with in your mind, you goddamn drone.

ISO8601 doesn't use spaces or slash though. Specifically: hyphen between date parts, T between date and time, and colon between time parts. Full date should be a single lexical unit.

But by extension of your logic, if you want to work from items of the current decade, you want to pull "year" and not "every october of this decade".

>>63440368
Yes, but again we're talking about common use cases. The number of times you're pulling specific months vs decades is going to vary based on your work, and I'm willing to bet more people are working on monthly reports more often than aggregate stuff by decade.

I have been trying to find the best preforming laptop that fits my budget and wanted your expert opinion.
I do want something that can run modern games but don't care if I have to use low settings for playable frame rates.

In my research the Acer Aspire E 15 E5-575G-57D4 (Intel Core i5-7200U, GeForce 940MX, 8GB DDR4 SDRAM, 256GB SSD) seems like it may be the best option in my price range but I only have limited knowledge of the current laptop market so I am not sure if something is better out there for under $600 USD.


Thank you in advance for your assistance.
