So, I'm using acronis 2012 and it always worked fucking flawless for backups/cloning machines and saved my ass countless times but looks like I'm years behind development and I kinda don't like to be forced to have 2 services runing 24/7 to use it

Are the new versions any good and removed the need of that always running shit or should I just stick to it werks?

The only way it impacts me is that I can't flash it to a 580 or run furmark. I still think it's a good card. The point is that there was an important piece of information that no one covered.

Powercolor has been alright for me in the past. One company I will avoid is HIS. I bought a reference HIS 290x on launch day and it came with typos on the box, and it was mining scrypt less than a 7970.

>literally the first paragraph defines a monopoly as legal

You really need to learn to read with comprehension, son. Monopolies are not illegal as it clearly states in that first paragraph but because they realize stupid fucking people like you don't comprehend things well they go on to further explain that a monopoly CAN be declared illegal if the company responsible used/uses anti-competitive tactics to maintain it in the marketplace.

Hence, any given monopoly is perfectly legal unless it used or uses anti-competitive practices aka dirty underhanded backstabbing bullshit to keep the monopoly in place.

Tell me why this is a bad idea /g/.

I have a nextcloud instance running on a home server with absolutely no redundancy. Everything is one one HDD.

I have file sync setup between my devices so I have the files on my desktop and laptop.

By having the files on other devices it is kind of like redundancy right?

What happened is there is now a critical mass of free, old or very low cost media floating around peoples homes. Cat videos from Facebook, DVDs bought in 2002 and inherited from grandma, borrowed at the library, old HDDs etc. Too much for most people to watch, plus the cultural illness means there's hardly anything new worth chasing.

Most of the way the commands work. For example, add -p is really a subclass of commit, not add. Merge and add -p do not make it clear whether or not you should commit on top of them. If you don't commit at the end of a merge (which mergetool should do but doesn't do), you will add future changes to the merge which will cause problems with history. If you commit after an add -p, you will undo the add -p.

Additionally, merge as a whole is fucked. Just using a standard workflow of git commit -a; git pull; git mergetool; git commit -a; git push; often results in completely unexplainable blame overwrites. Also, vimdiff is the default mergetool method but it's completely borked (it will randomly select a subset or a superset of the remote or local instead of the right segment when using the appropriate command).

Other problems include cherrypick which also has interface problems (if you keep cherrypicking until it says everything is good, it will just give you an empty commit, I haven't figured that one out yet).
>>
Yes although merging is a bit iffy.

If you can you should avoid working on the same things in different branches simultaneously anyways.

Everyone has different preferences but really, just use whatever your friends are using. And when your friends start saying 'hey we tried out this other app, you should switch too' then you fucking switch because who gives a shit what app it is and what the UI is like and what features or stickers or other bullshit it has the only reason you're using a messaging app at all is to talk to your friends. Don't form an attachment to some arbitrary piece of software, form a connection with your friends.
