/g/uys, I need a new laptop and I've been thinking about a thinkpad yoga, because of muh digitizer.
Try to convince me to buy something else
Also, thinkpad general
What GNU/Linux distros are out there that don't use systemd?
I know in Gentoo it's optional, but are there any other ones?
>inb4 install bsd
>mfw people whine about systemd when it's perfectly fine
No Battlestations thread? let's change that
I just can't find a real use for it, i mean a necessary one. It's only for communication ...
Now /g/, we're pretty much all doing Maths here. What are you using?
Picture related, it's the Kuru Toga Mechanical Pencil (0.5mm lead).
Pens, pencils, calculators etc. are welcome.
No desktops, tablets, or phones please - even if they're your calculators.
Calculator software (Matlab, Wolframalpha etc.) are welcome.
Loving this mechanical pencil. It's metal too, so it's not plastic.
Whatever people are using. Personally I'm using it to verify some of my answers. I should probably be using Matlab instead though, seeing as I took the time to *cough* acquire it.
Old one was dying.
If I have these in dual channel: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231689
Would I be able to put these http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231476&utm_medium=Email&nm_mc=EMC-IGNEFL112114&cm_mmc=EMC-IGNEFL112114-_-EMC-112114-Index-_-DesktopMemory-_-20231476-S1A6A in the second and fourth slots for another dual channel of 16GB without any problems? I'm not sure about the whole mixing RAM rules.
I want to install windows on a vps that does not offer it. Normally to install unsupported OS, I boot a live environment, install qemu, and run iso, but windows is silly and throws everything and the kitchen sink on the iso making it too large for my budget vps ram.
Can dd do stdin/stdout? I think I could create my image in qemu, boot live environment, then do something like:dd if=win_qemu.img of=stdout |ssh host "dd if=stdin of=/dev/sda1"
Does anyone else miss the cellphone market before the iphone era? So much variety, so many phones for so many different lifestyles. Some were ugly, some were the latest tech and some were just plain weird. Greatest nostalgic feeling would have to be remembering nokia's n series coming out. I wish I got my hands on a n93i, that thing had optical zoom and was a very decent camcorder.for onling having a 3.2 megapixel camera
Or how about all the basic style phones that were out? One reason I'm happy I live in Moscow is because a lot of people have 2 phones here, an android/iphone and a fancy looking outdated gadget. I'm actually using this thing right now since I smashed my s4 to pieces.
>tfw you never had a Motorola RAZR
>not using a Micro ATX or Mini ITX build
Whats your excuse?
im a neetfag that spends all day in front of a computer programming
I like having some kind of connection or distraction open so it doesnt feel so lonely all the time. Like a radio station or a stream in the background. I find it hard to focus if I'm not 'connected'
Lately I've been looking for
* chat rooms and for stuff related to software development that I can idle in and have open in the back ground
* podcasts and radio stations to play while i develop (doesnt have to be related to dev but i like talk stations and...

/g/ what is your favorite tech device of all time that you still currently still use ?
>Waterproof IPX7 treated verizon note 2 with unlimited 4G
>CM11 4.4.4 nightly 11-19-2014
>Otterbox Defender with belt clip just carry it in my pocket
>a chrome rigged Keychain attached to a steel lanyard I take the MTA NYC every day
So /g/, I've been thinking of creating my own satellite
I'd do a test run with like a weather balloon but if I could do it it'd be grand.
>use raspberry pi connected to cameras, altimeter, thermometer
>record data and video of launch
>send it into orbit then which now costs about 8k
This is a great idea /g/
what are you going to do about radiation flipping the bits in your sat, What are you going to do about temperature controls. What are you going to do about communication.... Who do you think you are going to fly with?
so much this. I was helping to build a computer to send into the upper atmosphere, it was a nightmare. The first computer was put in a vacuum chamber to test it, it got over 60 degrees Celsius. The second got down to 30 degrees, and the third got to a 25, which was the one we sent up. It worked pretty good, though managing heat sinks and weight is killer.

Post your builds, rice, and whatever else relating to OS X on non-Apple computers.

Some SJW started a web app where you can rewrite the Barbie computer engineer book.
I don't see what's wrong with the page where she says she needs help, the person that programs the engine is not normally the graphics designer and probably doesn't do the audio work either.
Yet more feminists that can't use command prompt deciding they know what they're doing.
Old thinkpad thread is over 300
I love my t430, and the egpu for it works wonderfully.
I bought my oldest sister a t420 an i5, 320gb HDD, 1600x900 screen, 8gb of ram, and nvidia graphics. She's gonna be using it for playing the sim 3, and her husband will use it for studying electrical code. It cost me 200$. I feel like this was a good price, and it will suit their needs.
Any other positive experiences?
