You guys did it. You made a board that is actually more repetitive than /b/.
What do you use in order to fetch your mail? Offlineimap, mbsync, mutt's default imap implementation?
Which patches do you use?
How do you manage your list of contacts?
Did you setup GPG? If so, what's your setup like?
What are some cool tricks/obscure features that everyone should know?
Let's talk, /g/!
I just downloaded this as my first Linux distro ever. What so I do? I'm dual booting with win10 but currently my windows 10 doest odor at all. I've partitioned 255gb for Linux.
Might need some more details. Download Rufus and burn the .iso file to a flash drive. Then turn off your computer, plug in the flash drive, and turn it on. Press esc and select boot menu. Choose the flash drive. Be extremely careful not to overwrite existing partitions. Back up your data.
>I'm dual booting with win10
Be very careful with UEFI related shit. I messed up my UEFI partition installing SUSE, and now I literally can't boot into Windows, recover the boot partition, or reinstall W10 at all. I have to install W7 instead. Thankfully I can still access the Windows partition and get all my files from Linux.
Fuck UEFI and fuck Windows 10 for helping to propagate it.
Does /g/ like Drupal?
If so, which version? Which theme?
IMO it's better to just roll your own, Drupal amdost other cms' are filled with vulnerabilities.
It's a mess.
One way to eliminate some vulnerabilities is to drop the database and use something like jekyll or it's competitors.
It depends on what you need/want, really.
What is the best monitor currently available today, /g/?
And by monitor I don't mean those 144hz GAMING MEME MONITORZ
I mean a real monitor for people who aren't children, manchildren, and retards.
Money no object? Eizo ColorEdge 318-4K
NEC offer similarly high quality displays for a bit less than Eizo. Dell also makes excellent high-end displays, including the first OLED 4K panel and a 5K one.
Is this shit a meme?
Apple now realizes AMOLED is better,
Never posted on this board before. If this isn't allowed, I apologize.
I am looking to setup a wall projector in my living room and have several questions.
Can anyone recommend me a decent projector? Looking to project onto an area that is roughly 5 feet x 6 feet. Willing to spend up to $400 dollars.
Is apple tv a standalone system which I could purchase, plug into a projector and hook up to my wifi?
Do they make projectors with decent built in sound or should I invest in speakers?
Apple TV requires power from the wall to work. Depending on the projector, some incluse an MHL HDMI port, so you could hook up a chromecast, roku, etc. But this depends on the "tier" of projector and the ones that do this usually are mire expensive, or are designed for conference rooms.
For the price you're stating i'd recommend a Optoma HD 141X. It's 1080p decent lag and pretty decent for the price.
If you want to pay a little extra for better colors and contrast i'd go...

What was the machine in Elephants Dream's purpose?
Discuss FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD, DragonFlyBSD, etc.
Other operating systems related to BSD like OS X is allowed to be talked about because it has BSD roots, but talk about the OS only. Take questions about macbooks to /fag/ or a more appropriate thread.

>Nvidia promised the gtx 1070 would be around $350
>the cheapest card you can find is $450
WHAT THE FUCK? Is this shit even legal?
>Nvidia sells them wholesale for about $200-250 with $350 MSRP for basic OEM-style cards
>Jewish retailers jack up the price because muh supply and demand
And yes it's legal. Nvidia didn't enter into any contract saying they absolutely will be X price. Retailers ultimately control the pricing.
Wait a few months and prices will drop. How it goes every time the newest GPU is hot shit.
>always wait for price to drop
>it never does
>all electronics retains its valuation until the point where its totally obsolete and theres no point in purchasing it
Fuck this market
I know a fair amount of C, and I do a fair amount of programming work. My HS GPA is about 3.5 and my ACT is 29. If I were to get into serious Linux kernel development (GPU drivers, networking API, etc.) or other large FOSS projects, what are the odds that I can get into a based university like UC Berkeley or MIT with the help of that?
Okay, /g/, need ideas

Do you have any ideas for fizz-buzz app, program or web which would make professors wet and also be possible to make it in one weekend?
Professors kinda into that startup shit but would also appreciate knowledge stack.
>ISPs treat data as a physically tangible product, magically worth more than the piss poor service and electrons that are involved in providing it
ITT we make /g/ approved insults. I'll start.
If you were a method in C, you would be fgets. Get it? Because fgets sounds like "faggot." You can use this one if you would like.
In future, create a strawpoll and just link it to /fglt/ or some other Linux related thread so we don't constantly get the same shit, I'm tired of seeing these same questions get asked with the same answers
The only way we can truly know what /g/ thinks is to have some sort of semi-permanent poll
I'm gonna keep linking this poll in your dumb threads so you stop making them and start referring to a more logical method i.e. polls
Arch is best because you get the newest tech and can keep it as lite as you want. The biggest downside is you have to be good with computers and it takes time to take time to set it up.
I own distropicker.com, but I'm too busy to do anything with it. I've wanted to make it into a sort of interactive flow chart that helps users narrow down a distribution. It would be really nice to be able to close down those threads for good with a
If you were to make a static site for it, I'd pay to get it hosted or point the DNS to you or something.
In fact, you know what? Make a Github if you don't already have one and want in on this. Not just OP, anyone interested. I'll put it on Heroku and add y'all as collaborators. Post usernames here.
Hey /g/ I just turned 18 Tuesday and I've gathered up a budget of $800 for a gaming PC. I was wondering if you guys could recommend me any parts. I'd really appreciate it!
just get this OP https://www.amazon.com/CyberpowerPC-Gamer-GUA3100A-Gaming-Desktop/dp/B0111MTSZ8/ref=sr_1_1?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1471191776&sr=1-1&keywords=gaming+pc
you'll save lots of money and be able to play any game at 4k resolution :)
Yes or no?
wtf? where did this pink haze on the left come from /g/?
all im using is a S236HL (1920x1080@60Hz) and GTX 780?
seems to have lines running down with it
/g/ warned me about buying a refurbished laptop a year ago, but I thought you guys were being faggots and that surely newegg wouldn't let me down. PLUS I had a year warranty too, so what could possibly go wrong?
That year warranty ran out on Wednesday. Today my laptop's hinge is starting to fall apart
Fuck lenovo and fuck newegg, I'm never doubting you guys again

Hey /g/. Thinking about ditching Windows 10 and switching to Arch. Can I have comfy experience on Arch? What DE?
Maybe it's because I'm using the wrong distro of Arch, but I found it a pain in the ass to install. Had to manually partition my storage devices, manually setup my user accounts and create their home directories.
so you want to be a ricer?
just do debian and xfce or something nice like that, and save yourself the trouble.
I want to learn about computer security what books or advice can you give me?
I would like to make a career out of it one day
Start by getting off 4chan. Real talk this place is filled with losers and degenerates. Go and hang around successful communities like reddit and hackerNews. Keep up to date with security news. Practice skills with real hardware. Books get out of date quickly. Start with some low level programming and networking.
How can I get an Exynos S7 Edge in the US?
Does anyone have an analog clock app on w7 that actually works?
Wait you mean a gadget clock. Pretty sure one comes pre-installed.
MS stopped supporting gadgets many years back because of security vulnerabilities. Not too eager to DL clocks based on the same gadget from google.
For now, I just jury rigged "Date and Time" window to "always show on top" in the bottom right corner till I have more time to find a proper solution
What anti-virus program should I buy for my Mac?

srs coders thread
I'm looking for components fitting a Mini or Medium-ITX in the price range of ~$1000 but since I don't know that much about about computer hardware I ask /g/ for help.
you are in correct place
is the $1000 just case or monitor too?
how many HDDs?
heavy gaming or just moderate?
big contenders for case are
PHANTEKS Enthoo Evolv ITX or ATX version
or node 304, boxy iTX
also fractal cases are worth checking out
Just case. I want to be able to run BF1and such games as good as possible for $1000. But if my father can support me with some money I'd estimate a budget of $1300. If I'd roll with a Mini-ITX I'd think I'd choose a BitFenix Prodigy. But what's the difference between ITX and ATX?
This morning an "imported photo and video" folder popped up for this date with a single blank white vertical photo
I have no devices which could have done this
I scanned with MalwareBytes and Windows Defender and found nothing
It's a warning. Some years from now you will be crossing that bridge. You will think it looks familiar, and that's when it will happen. Theres nothing you can do, your fate is sealed.
