I found out recently we have a local makerspace. Only problem is it's the only one and it's $100/mo. for membership. I assume it's for rent/electric.
>inb4 that's expensive and such
>any makers, what fees do you typically pay and what kinds of things do you work on?
Makerspaces aren't just for wood and metal work. They also usually have arduino/robtics, arcade cabinets, and various other electrical projects as far as hardware is concerned.
Many also have software programming/hacker counterparts, which is where I would most fit in.
Though, it does seem like few people partake in them overall :( Thank you for your input though.

I can tell /g/ really hates Tor. I've been using it forever to access e.g. TPB and other stuff my faggotty ISP and country laws block access to. I've got just the proxy running as a service and use connection settings to manually tell Firefox to use it instead of the system default connection. Works like a charm and is nicely minimalistic and down to business.
Since you all hate Tor so much, what do you suggest I use instead? I absolutely hate bloat like overlay UIs (hotspot shield browser plugin) and other shite I don't need, I'd like it to basically...

>Tor isn't just tor browser bundle
I almost literally said that... I just have tor.exe running as a background service all the time and my programs can connect to it via a port. The browser bundle is shite IMHO.
My point is, since you all hate Tor and believe Tor is compromised, what do you suggest I use instead? I'm looking at i2p and freegate atm, but I see no reason to trust them anymore than Tor. Anyone can claim to have setup an anon network and to not be logging stuff etc.
Hello, I'm plannig on setting up a usb dead drop in my area but have a question:
Is it possible to make the usb drive automatically duplicate any files that are put on it and store them in an encrypted folder?
Because if I ever come back to it one day I could open the encrypted file and see what's been on it and that would fucking cool.
Why is MPV so highly recommended? I've tried it out and see no difference. I'm playing anime too.
What is /g/'s recommended video player?
Go compare it (k-lite or CCCP) side by side with VLC. Seriously, do it.
Find your favorite anime, preferably a decent BD rip, and pause at random places at the same time in both players, side by side. It is so blatantly obvious.
VLC mangles the image, and can't reproduce decent coloring.
Are there any tech-literate people on this board that are at least somewhat normal? The autism on this board is overwhelming.
Here's some normie-habits that may help you identify if you are a /g/-approved normalfag
>1 modern laptop for programming (no ancient thinkpads returned from the grave)
>1 tablet for media consumption and reading
>no autistic obsession with endless tinkering, rooting, and "optimization" that has no purpose in mind
>a life outside of "tech"
Old one is approaching bump limit
Did you buy anything like this, /g/? Did you ever enjoy having it? Do you still like it? Why is it a superior or inferior device to its competitor?
Post more examples, discuss.
Had a red one. Finally died about a year ago, and I have yet to buy another pmp.
Had the original zune. I liked it quite a bit actually. The interface was very refreshing compared to iPod's tired old interface.
Wish I had gotten that model with the touchpad, scrolling through lots of music was the only painful part about the original.
Looks like Lizard Squad is compromising your anonymity /g/.
Why is VLC bad?
it le just werk
Also it was made as a network stream viewer, so shit like fucking pausing the god damn video takes a couple seconds just to happen. If you use VLC to watch shit on your hard drive, you're fucking retarded.
why the fuck start ups only want ruby on rails developers ?
/g/, I think my mother is cheating on my father. How do I get into her computer to look for evidence?
The only methods I found only are ways to restart the windows password, but I don't want her to get suspicious at all.
Times you used your computer knowledge for questionable activites.
