Why have you not joined the 8K master race, /g/?
15 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
No, 8K is actually a thing. All the "next gen" resolution/color specs (e.g. BT.2020) or upcoming broadcasting standards (ATSC 3.0 extension) usually support 4K and 8K. Many explicitly define 8K as max.
Given how long we usually sit on such standards, it's pretty likely we will have these new ones for quite a long time as well. Once we finally get content for them, once we shift production to use this stuff, 8K is like the best you can get just like 1080p is today (and 4K will be more like the retarded 720p brother).

So yeah, given that there's no content for this shit yet, there's no point in getting expensive devices. However, waiting for it might be worth, we are gonna sit on these standards for a while (again). It's not like it will be 16K a week after 8K.
That's kinda unrelated because we talk about different codecs and storage formats here (production is not using what gets released to consumers).
Just because it exists doesn't mean it will get released. However, changes might be there will be a 8K re-release just like we had many old movies "remastered" in 1080p.
>but there is no content

What is excel, word, browser, pictures,pdf reader, huge ides, editing software
Like video production is a worthwhile job lol.

It's all in the software anyway.
>720p = HD
>1080p = Full HD
>4k = Ultra HD
>8k = Ultra HD

And the sheer number of people who think "the internet" is some magical thing and not just a fucking network, people who are happy with their out of the box isp modem/router, are trying to answer questions they are clearly unqualified for in stupid question threads, who actually do NOT know how to use Linux despite "installing" Gentoo by following the wiki to the letter, the "rust or go?" threads despite the two not being related what so fucking ever, and the asinine responses, are just a sample of the shit I've seen today.

AMD and Microsoft team up to advance open source cloud hardware

Microsoft’s Project Olympus platform design to incorporate the upcoming high-performance “Naples” x86 server processor.

AMD recently announced it is working with Microsoft to advance open source cloud hardware. During the 2017 Open Compute Project U.S. Summit, the company said it teamed up with Microsoft to add Naples’ processor’s cloud delivery features to Microsoft’s Project Olympus.

Project Olympus is Microsoft’s next-gen hyperscale cloud hardware design, and also a new model for open-source hardware development within the OCP community.

AMD says the joint effort means updated cloud hardware design can ‘adapt to meet the application demands of global datacentre consumers’.

“Next quarter AMD will bring hardware innovation back into the datacenter and server markets with our high-performance “Naples” x86 CPU, that was designed with the needs of cloud providers, enterprise OEMs and customers in mind,” said Scott Aylor, corporate vice president of enterprise systems, AMD. “Today we are proud to continue our support for the Open Compute Project by announcing our collaboration on Microsoft’s Project Olympus.”

Naples will bring the ‘Zen’’ x86 processing engine in configurations going up to 32 cores. AMD says the access to large amounts of memory and industry-leading on-chip support for high-speed I/O channels in a single chip SoC will separate Naples from everything else available in the market today.

The first processors are expected in the market in the second quarter of this year.

> using Midori
Are you serious? Yes, I'm really asking.

The last time I tried Midori it crashed all the time and it was generally a piece of trash. It might have been around 2010, not entirely sure.

Is Midori stable these days? Does it work fine for daily usage? I seem to remember that it had some nice ideas, but I don't remember what they were.
When I can't use elinks I go with Midori, and honestly I haven't got any problems so far

Most likely cause is something else trying to access the file while it downloads. Does it resume the download fine?
How's gentoo?
Not enough HDD space can be a cause. qbit needs like double the space of the actual file size for some reason while downloading.
Or maybe you're downloading straight to an external hard drive and it disconnected for a secon

Ok then. Any examples? I'd love to see how each one looks side by side and then pick one up.
It's the same thing with MPC-HC and mpv shitposting threads, no one throws comparisons.
Ignore shitposters like that. You can do the comparisons yourself, personally I like haasnsoft for mongolian flash videos, but check and compare different scalers.
mpv makes this super easy as well with cycle-values.

Too bad that Mozilla has planned to kill that feature too, so you can't repair things anymore with that afterwards!
>Who the fuck uses the search bar anymore?
Power users.

Users who want more than a stock feature set and make use of additional features and know how to handle them properly as they have the actual brain to understand their use.

But Mozilla only crawls into the asses if simpletards these days anway which neither have the acceptance for such features and neither have the brain capacity to make good use of them.
seems like the right place to ask how do I disable adress bar searches entirely keyword.enabled false and browser.urlbar.unified complete still allow searches if something is mistyped

Let's share some cool TUI/CLI programs.

Pic related is a TUI interface to the transmission-daemon with Vim keybinds called stig, similar to transmission-remote-cli, only better.
It also provides a CLI interface that can be used in scripts and the TUI is themeable.


Be sure to install from the development branch, because it's still being heavily developed and some python3.6 related bugs had been fixed just a few days ago.
Also be sure to have transmission-daemon installed.

>what's wrong with transmission-remote-cli
transmission-remote-cli is broken abandonware (it's been superseded now by tremc, which is the same crap, only in python 3).
>transmission-remote-cli is no longer maintained.

>Install from source you technologically illiterate shit. What are you doing here?
I'm fine with compiling from source. I have no problem git cloning a repo from github and following the compilation instructions. You're the asshat here recommending this to people with no experience with Linux. And why would even someone experienced with Linux subject themselves to something like that? Might as well use Gentoo if you're going to be COMPILING a bunch of shit. You're the idiot here.

>Install from source
Stop chiming in on topics you're clueless about or better yet get the fuck off of /g/

You're right, it is compile from source. But, I just chimed in. I didn't recommend anything.

And Lenovo can sue the shit out of you for it for the new cells. Burning notebooks aren't that rare anyway and all of them get away with it.

YEAH DON'T FUCKING MIND ME JUST STE--I MEAN pirating this bottle of wine!

Heh if I like it I'll pay for it!

If you are not going to spend money on an item because it not "appealing" enough, then that makes stealing OK? What? "Well I wasn't going to pay for it anyways so it's not like I'm hurting you by just taking your product." Yes you are! You're taking a unit of their product. Sure, maybe you won't pay for it at first, but if the movie ends up being good then maybe you'll want to see the movie and then they have your sale. But if you have seen the movie alreadu then they get no sale from you you! You obviously have no economic knowledge on that regard.

Piracy is theft, you are taking from someone. It is no different then going to a store and taking a movie off the shelf. It does not benefit anyone but the pirate who decides he is too good to pay for things he want. Too good to get a job and earn the things you get. Piracy hurts the economy and loses jobs. So stop it.

another weak bait, are you getting paid?

Or are you retarded?
I pirate everything and don't ever pay, even if i like it.

Yeah it's stealing, I do it because I can get away with it.
Piracy is a phase. As soon as you can afford not to, its less hassle and your time has a value.

Fuck the music industry though, I remember illegal price fixing of £15.99 CDs in the late 80s.

That is £40.00 for a CD in 2017 money.
Data is a worthless commodity because there's so much of it. I can listen to years worth of free ambient music if I really want.
