Does /g/ own any domain names?
I'm thinking of registering jihad.moe and some other joke domains because fun, and have one serious domain.
Wanted levens.moe ("tired of life" in Dutch) but it was already taken.
I'd just put
>Allah Ackbar, Onee-Chan!
It's just 25 Euro anyway.
How can I install firefox addons in seamonkey, without modding them each individually?
also, stupid questions thread
I need a new 1150 mobo. What does /g/ recommend? What specs should I be looking for? This one seems like a good deal:
...But really I'm looking for an affordable one.
I'll soon be cashing out on a deal for a $99 i7-4790K, but I currently have an AM3+ mobo, so I'll need to replace it.
What kind of storage is /g/ rocking?
>What you use it for?
>Specs of hard drives
>What you use it for?
Backups, movies, TV, music videos, work stuff.
>Specs of hard drives
7x WD Red 6TB drives in RAID6.
Just installed a new battery in my 4th gen iPod.
Battery cost be €5 and now I have a cheap mp3 player.
Waiting for the Compact flash adapter cable to arrive.
Why does /g/ get so upset when attention is paid to aesthetics in hardware or UI?
Would you rather that all your hardware be ugly, clunky, and have a user-hostile UI?
Explain your reasoning in five sentences or less, image is optional.
>aesthetics in hardware
Goes with hardware that people don't actually want to look. Also computers are tools, not toys.
>aesthetics in software
Makes a simple software in a turmoil of colors that doesn't help in nothing with it's use, most of the time it makes things harder.
I'm in the process of replacing an old netburst xeon based workstation that I use to store/stream media. I also need it to host an old runUO shard until the playerbase inevitably dies out.
I want something small and power efficient so im considering two options. Either I go all out and get one of those 8 core avoton boards or cheap out with an AM1 build. Will an athlon 5350 be enough in my case? Any sensible opinions would be appreciated.
Pic related its the case I will be using.
I just reformatted and dont feel like going through the bullshit of installing MS office again.
should i use Open Office?
is Open Office /g/ approved?
Nothing is /g/ approved. nothing ever will be /g/ approved.
everything is a botnet according to /g/
you are better off disconnecting your computer from the internet, dismantling it, pulverizing all compenents, incinerating the remains, then finally killing yourself for your own safety.
with that said, Open office is a fine alternative to MS office.
If you seriously need all the features that Open Office offers that equivelate to the advanced features of office then yeah Open Office is a good alternative (only alternative) really to Office, but if you just want to type and basic features why don't you just use Word Pad or some other basic text editor?
Why aren't you using the worlds most advanced operating system on non-overpriced shit hardware, /g/?
Old one is dead so it's ThinkPad General time again!
My question to you guys: is it realistic for me to purchase an X230 (tablet or not) on ebay/whatever and expect a 100% working machine for at least two-three years?
The reason is that I'm far away from 'Merica so if something goes wrong, the warranty and the returns will be out of the question. (unless US Lenovo warranty will work in russia - I highly doubt it)
Is it naive or there is a chance?
Where should I buy it from?
Also, if you know: what part breaks/has faults most often or earliest in the X230?
Yes. Many Thinkpads easily last 10+ years. The X220/X230 is not quite as sturdy in my experience but five years should still be a non-issue.
Expect the display to develop white spots if it's an IPS though. Hard drives also tend to fail more easily especially if they are the 7mm variety often found in the X230. An SSD will make that a non-issue.
I expect hard drives, RAM and batteries to fail or degrade over time, of course. My biggest concern was the display and the motherboard, because I won't be able to find quick replacements for them. But I was planning to switch to SSD as soon as possible (for both speed and shock "resistance").
Five years sound fine for me. Thanks!

First post in a Battle station thread!
This is my setup while I'm in Uni.
I actually have the original model with blues! I have had a chance to use the Razer greens, and I have to say they really aren't that bad. They feel like blues, but with less of a click. Lot quieter too. If I had the choice, i'd still go with the blues since I really enjoy clicky things; but the Razer greens are a close second.
Remember when this browser didn't suck balls?
Why do you not yet have the best price/performance phone on the market in your possession?
Whatcha reading, /g/?
What are you reading it on?
I need a need router soon, is the RT-AC68U really the best money can buy?
Could someone explain me, why not ubuntu ?
I think for most the problem lies within Unity. For others it might be because Ubuntu has a more corporate drive force with shines through their products. Others mind find it to 'bloated', meaning it has to much unnecessary software
