What does /g/ think of the Chromebook?
Is it worth $200?
>inb4 kill yourself
>inb4 you're a faggot
> Is it worth $200?
Would say no, there are better tablets and stuff.
But if you're going to use it exclusively for a web browser / email thing, it probably doesn't matter and it might still be a sensible enough choice.
Home Server thread!
What are you running?
I installed crunchbang on an old netbook and disabled sleep mode so I could use it as a hentai@home server.
It works pretty well.
I'd like to get some samba shares going, but the documentation and tutorials are so obtuse that I'm having a hard time getting off the ground.
old one is dying, time for a new one
>Get or expecting anything new?
>Any major changes imminent for your station?
give me criticism, I know desk is dusty as fuck and terrible.
monitor stand coming in a week or so.
I'll join. No new changes to the station, I'm content for right now.
Getting in to some entry level photography and photo editing as something fun to learn.

> Daily reminder that no AMD iGPU can surpass the Haswell Iris Pro.

All that for only 47W total
Can you think of examples of technology that directly attempt to emulate fictional technology seen in Science Fiction works? Among them, how many of them actually became successful products?
I suppose Google Glass and other VR stuff are among the few actual examples, and even then the claim is somewhat controversial.
There are plenty of examples of fictional descriptions of technology preceding the actual tech: easily going back to Jules Verne's submarines. But usually it's not very scientific nor practical to emulate fiction.
Interesting! Are there any instances you can think of where the creator/lead developer directly states that they were attempting to emulate something that they saw, or read in fiction?

I don't think you understand
Now that there are no ports on the macbook ports have become depreciated in the whole industry
You don't need ports anymore. Its le innovashiun at work
I'm going to buy a router or a WIFI-router for my new apartment. Im thinking buying Asus or TP-Link, or something under 60 €/70 $USD with AC ability. What are the best routers for general networking that have nice UI and don't brick themselfs alot (we had ZyXel Wifi-router that overheated to point of no return)
I have looked following models: Asus RT-AC51U Dual-Band (AC750)
TP-Link Archer C2 (AC750)
In the past i have had bad feels with D-link and ZyXel boxes.
Also genral networking thread as none found.
stay away from the ASUS line. i shilled them for years in consumer electronics until my 3rd personal one burned out.
100/100 at home calls for n300 at most, AC is still pretty nascent in terms of consumer devices using it properly + even if you run "AC" on your device you'd need a shitton of antennae/spatial streams to get the speeds nd the feed to satiate ur needz u feels

I'm looking for a burning LASER.
Something I can light tinder / matches / candles with.
Are they sold on Amazon? (I only ask because I happen to need one for very particular reason, but a relative gave me an Amazon gift certificate).
My neighbor has set up a security camera peering into my backyard (confirmed deliberately to record me)
What's a cheap way of disabling it?
I'm thinking of shining an IR light into it or something
talk me out of buying 16gbs of ram even though I won't be doing video editing
neither do i but i dont like closing chrome tabs
You'll be needing when ur done installing all the dumb applications u have
whats the best laptop for programmers?
what do you think is important for programmer laptops?
i want to buy a new laptop, tired of my old thinkpad.
Anyone here have (or currently doing) a degree in Mechanical Engineering?
Can you tell me if you guys study structural mechanics at all, and if so in how much depth? Did you do stuff like trusses (pic related), stress analysis, moment of inertia, deflections, loading capacity, moment distribution method, shrinkage stresses, etc at all? If none of that sounds familiar, what did you do instead to calculate that something can withstand the forces it needs to?
I'm thinking of transferring from structural to mechanical engineering and wondering if any of what I've...
Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Seriously all of it? Great!
Is it a lot different with moving parts? Structures don't move so I've never done anything like that, but I imagine it might be pretty similar with maybe just one or two new things to learn... hopefully
Why don't we have this
How would you write a program to solve this maze without simply following a wall until you reach the end?
cut it into a grid of multiple pieces, find the longest contiguous lines of white from one edge of the piece to the other edge and then attempt to connect those edges on the other pieces
Old one reached the limit.
that's not a desktop, silly :3
