vim with a foreign language keyboard layout

had a webex session with some TAC monkeys about three weeks ago. always have to set the keyboard layout to english for them.
then I needed to change a setting with vim on the shared screen and only fucked up my file ... ":" had moved in the layout and I couldn't quit anymore, too. embarassing as fuck

You must be really slow and never edit text for longer than 6 seconds.


Because you're not using it how it's meant to be used, negating any useful things about it. You are just a poser who thinks he's cool for using Vi.
I've never seen the use of many of the features in vim because I don't touch type anyway. I never felt the need to learn since I get around 105 WPM using my index fingers only.

I use vim because it cuts the bullshit and because it's a terminal editor so I can use it consistently whether I'm SSHing or not.

Microsoft and Intel’s Decades-Long Alliance Has Started To Fray


For decades, two companies worked side by side to build the very foundation of personal computing. Microsoft built the operating system—Windows—and Intel built the chips. But Wintel is no more. Sure, Windows will continue to run on Intel chips. But Wintel as a mighty alliance has died. It’s been fading for years, and this week Microsoft snuffed out the last of it.

On Wednesday, from a conference stage in Silicon Valley, Microsoft told the world it plans on using ARM chips in the servers that underpin Windows Azure, the sweeping collection of cloud computing services that represents the company’s future. It was the most tactical of announcements, a carefully considered collection of words meant to shift computing’s balance of power. Microsoft has yet to actually put ARM chips in the data centers that run Azure. It merely pledged that it would.

“All this is before we’ve actually seen a chip,” says Patrick Moorhead, the president and principal analyst at Moor Insights and Strategy, a firm that closely follows the chip business. In other words, this announcement isn’t about technology—at least not yet. It’s little more than a push against Intel’s market power. Like Google and Amazon and others, it seems, Microsoft wants an added bargaining chip when buying computer chips from the biggest computer chip maker on Earth. The question: will it get what it wants?


>Microsofts Future

jesus ... are you going full SaSS on businesses? I can see it happening i guess.

Every big business is just going to pay for software whenever its needed and can deploy anything they want pretty much instantly without ever owning it.

I guess it makes sense.

Hope they leave the consumer market behind slowly.
Wait, ARM chips can run on servers now?
Yeah they're really great for IO heavy work, bunch of companies jumped on the train

Whats /g/'s opinion on ITIL? Learning for the Foundation Exam right now, and it seems pretty bloated to me.

Tips on how to prepare for the exam would be appreciated as well.
great if your business depends on selling ITIL for obscene amount of taxpayer money

besides that not much value in it really
IT bosses like COBIT more because it gave them maturity level number they can brag to higher ups
Honestly it looks like total bullshit to me

It's just a tool for HR interviewers to cut all people that don't have some ITIL cert
Maturity models are essentially arbitrary, but otherwise the standard (5) is useful.

ITIL is bullshit until you have a giant project, program, or help desk to build/maintain/operate. Lots of fluff but it's nice to have such a large trove of best practice concepts to point at.

not him, and i personally use arch, but i used gentoo prior
gentoo (or funtoo) might be something you'll like, just keep in mind that you'll probably spend a lot of time compiling things unless you;
- get your USE flags sorted out quickly, forgetting something and adding it later might require many things to be recompiled
- don't install new software often
- don't update often/like to stay on current versions of software

as far as "getting things exactly how i like it" go, gentoo is up there, just with the disadvantage of not really having a choice in making it how you like it (the defaults for USE flags, iirc, are really barebones, which makes sense, but probably not practically useful), and the need to compile anything that changes
how is the quality of the wiki related to the quality of the distro?
i'm not sure how you can compare them
if you're wondering why i don't use it anymore, i tend to use or at least try out most of the features of the software i install, so there was constant USE flag updates and most stuff got recompiled more than once while still on the same version
the potential disk and memory savings from stripping out unneeded functionality wasn't significant on my desktop, despite being pretty outdated at the time (dual core/3G ram in 2011)
so the main selling points of gentoo just didn't really suit me for this purpose
if i was to put together something with a specific purpose/featureset in mind with constrained hardware, i would still consider gentoo for that
Is there any similar setup like .xinitrc and startx for wayland?

anyone know how to remove ransomware from a pc to decrypt files without paying?
16 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
if I were them I'd unlock half of the files and ask for more money. Like the metaphor of the archer that always shoots half the distance or something. so the money keeps flowing
Kek not bad, but I don't know if when people start knowing about this it will result in more money at the end of the day.

Though I know that some of them tell you that you don't need to pay to unlock the files, if you infect two of your friends kek.
How did you manage that anon?
Ransomeware stayed dormant for a while just spreading itself without encrypting files, so when I made the backups, they were getting encrypted too, and when I noticed it was too late.
There's some that written bad, and uses the same key. You could find a stock photo in your encrypted stuff, assuming it's file by file encrypted, and get the key by comparing the two.

Do you run Windows as your main OS and run Linux in a VM for actual work, or do you run Linux as your daily driver and run Windows in a VM for muh gaymen?

I don't run Windows at all.

If I'm going to ever run it again, I'll probably set up an old Thinkpad w/ it and use it mostly to play weeb games in bed. This is likely to happen once I acquire a newer laptop, so I can dedicate my old one to this purpose.
