Prove me wrong.
Optical media starts to degrade after about five years. Hard drives fail in five years, ten if you're lucky.
How do I preserve my digital media so that it's not gone in 20-30 years?
All my googling suggests that I'm best off printing off pictures I want to store in the long run and stick them in a cool, dark, dry place.
Why don't you have a 8TB drive to store all your chinese cartoons?
Can we get a server thread?
Post your uptimes and what your server is used for.
Why isn't .svg more popular? This is literally the best image file format.
Why cellphone numbers are still in use when nick names can easly replace them?
You have 10 seconds to explain why you still use this instead of private trackers.
>watching stuff on your laptop
If you do all 5, why are you even on /g/?
Name a better laptop under $1000 than the Lenovo Y40.
Since /g/ is in the state of terminal cancer with all the consumer advice threads I decided to make a homeserver thread
Discuss good setups, scripts, management utilities, using overkill enterprise systems in your bedroom, being a NEET fuck and running a DC in your mother's basement
It all goes in the homeserver thread
Pic unrelated, a depreciated pretty looking vacuum cleaner that should not be used in a typical home setting
What are you trying to serve?
I never had to serve anything but if I did I am not advanced enough to use scripts, I know that I would use FTPzilla as FTP server, Apache as web server, What more is there? not being a smartass but since this thread is here I'll make it interesting and maybe someone can enlighten me also.
So I was wondering, what are some brands that I should be pursuing for a mediocre home setup. Would /g/ have a seperate DB box or just integrate everything into one machine to save on power? I was going to impulse buy a microserver today (100USD for 500GB X4, SATA 16GB RAM, 2X Xeon E5345,) but I got distracted at work and forgot to bid for it. I guess I fucked up big time since that was a decent amount of hardware for the price)
Here's a pic of my home server when I was cleaning it out a few months back.
Mostly use it for just web pages, email, torrent box, file server, etc. Also a Sailor Moon Doom server.
Does /g/ know any good laser sites that lasers are 10mw and above
How will typical laptops look in the 2020s?
Not sure if that's awesome or my worst nightmare.
Tablets and 2-in-1's are the future, i.e. Surface Pro 3. We just have to make non-shit keyboards for them, though the latest surface line has improved it quite a bit.
Desktop master-rigs will still be popular for the home.
I know I'm gonna get hate for this, but I really need it: is there a way to bypass/brute force a private tumblr blog password?
No vim thread? Vim thread!
Tips, config sharing, ...
Everyone welcome, certainly the vim-curious.
Good read with bram just fyi:
>inb4 editor wars
Vim is great and so is Emacs, use what suits your needs best.
So it's a given that most of you guys download films and tv shows illegally.
I'm curious though, do you just watch and delete or do you hoard it on a hard drive? Seems a bit risky to have a hard drive full of evidence of your indiscretions
It's safer to keep it rather than download it every time you want to watch. People get caught by getting their IPs logged while they're actively torrenting, so the less time you spend downloading the better.
