What's your opinion about China and its government? Dictatorship, mass surveilance, centralization, gathering people's DNA data, destroying nature.. Dystopia that we seek is right over their, /g/uys?
I don't think this is not just a problem of China. I don't care what happened inside the Great firewall. But they will be huge engine for making suck world.
Like what, someone is possible to say "We are fighting with terrorism. Surveillance is the best weapon for terrorism. China is perfect for national security. Let's imitate China." or "Chink techs are growing high as they gathers user data illegally. We should delete 'don't be evil' on our CoC either". Their backdoors are problem in themselves. Beware of dystopia of Xi
So what do you think about it? How would you react to this situation? Or could hacktivists make something against? thanks

It is a pressure boiler even the central government fears will burst. That is the reason for the truly massive surveillance. Essentially they use tech to remain in power but still fear a collapse. As the former East Block shows even an iron grip cannot stop people from seeking freedom. A collapse would be very, very ugly.
IMO we shouldnt. More people just waters everything down.
Its a faulty system. From what I know most of the censorshit methods aside from the great firewall are mostly useless. Police only do their jobs when gov't officials are around, data the gov't doesn't want spread still gets spread through proxies and WeChat. Its a corrupt government for sure but it seems slow and somewhat inept, although if there were major ways hackers could circumvent this shit its either already been done or is being done. I can't see the populous changing anything and since most of its efforts are so worthless I can't see other governments wanting to emulate it or doing so with success
China is unpleasant enough that Chinese want to leave:
>Why many rich Chinese don’t live in China

China has also lost its lustre as a preferred place for expats. The pollution is simply out of control. We get a lot of verbiage about cleaning up but then again this is one of the most corrupt countries on this planet.

On my computer Xfce uses 200 MiB of ram. Kde uses somewhere between 400-500. Xubuntu != Xfce, and the countless daemons and processes running in the background of Ubuntu are not part of the Xfce desktop.



XFCE uses more resources than KDE

Damn nice, my chink lens is supposed to be 18x but it's nowhere near that quality. I'm planning to upgrade to S9 ( S10 if it's out by then) next year, then I'll know for sure if I need a better lens as well.

Does anyone here actually know what it takes to work at Amazon, fb, Google and other big tech companies? What is it that they look for skill wise? And is it even possible to get a job with them if you don't go to an elite school for CS? Obviously they are willing to pay top dollar for good programmers.

It's a lot easier if you're fresh out of college or still in college and going for an internship - if you're not, then the interview will generally be more difficult.

>A good knowledge of the common data structures and algorithms
>Understanding of big-o notation and an ability to work out the time and space complexities of an algorithm
>Knowledge of various ways to attack problems
>Ability to program in multiple programming languages

You should try to practice programming challenges. Start by implementing some well-known data structures and algorithms in your spare time so you understand them well. And practice explaining your thought process as you code (this is harder than it seems).

The general interview process is pretty similar for all these companies:
>Send in application online
>Get contacted to arrange a remote interview
>Have an interview over the phone or via voip/google hangouts/amazon chime/etc while you code in a live document editor
>They'll generally describe a function they want you to write, and you have to work through the problem explaining your thought process along the way, and writing code - you will probably be expected to tell them the runtime efficiency of your algorithm and may be asked to make it more efficient

I got in by being an intern. (Had no other work experience) I think this is the easiest way if you can prove yourself with your work. Otherwise you will need a strong resume and be good at interviewing.
Do you have experience working for a big tech company? This is probably the most detailed explanation of the hiring process I've seen pretty much anywhere
The problem I have is that I'm gonna be almost 30 by the time I have my bachelor's in CS, so I'm pretty much playing catch up at this point. My hope is to build a solid resume by banging out projects left and right but I'm still unsure of what actual good companies want to see from applicants. What school did you go too and what kind of work did you have on your resume at that point?
>Do you have experience working for a big tech company? This is probably the most detailed explanation of the hiring process I've seen pretty much anywhere
No, but I did an in-person interview at one last week and I own a copy of 'Cracking the Coding Interview' (would recommend btw).

What's the difference between backlit and thinklight?
backlit is when the light comes under the keys, thinklight is just an LED on the top side of the bezel (near the webcam), pointing at the keyboard, in theory, it works great, but after a few years of use the keyboard starts to shine and reflects more light which is annoying, the problem with backlit is that it comes with the chiclet keyboards only.
thanks! And I assume I look on ebay/ali express for this shit?
Ye, "x230 japanese" on ali gives good results.

You're thinking too much into it m8. I just find the ergodox more comfortable to type on than a regular staggered board.
Where can I get custom keycaps that have Japanese characters on it too. I want to have blacklit on the characters too.

Get on my level.

Really? Because I get along in today's world just fine without prime. I rarely if at all find myself in a situation where I need something that urgently. Maybe you should step back and ask yourself whether you really need it, or if you're just making excuses.

fucking idiot. if you're rendering was actually good it would look BETTER when you zoom in.
So that means that every computer in the world displays a totally different image no matter what, WTF

DPI doesn't matter, only pixels do.
I don't understand what the picture is trying to mean/compare. Can you explain?
I conspicuously masturbate to anime ass
That the op has the font size set to higher than default, thus it can't be used to compare how "good" font rendering is to other OSes.
