Questions that dont deserve their own threads thread (so like 80% on /g/).
Im about to install Antergos on a nigger rigged PC I drunkenly put together last night.
I have 3 HDDs, a SATA 320GB one, an IDE 400GB one and an IDE 60GB one from 2003 that kinda still works.
Which one would be better to work as my OS HDD? The SATA one or the IDE one?
Thanks in advance, Ill post pics of my masterpiece next. Currently running a live session while waiting for help and wisdom.
Build your own 5th gen iPod Classic from cheap Chinese parts.

It's much cheaper now.
Alternatively just buy a Nokia N8 and use it as an audio player. It has a better Wolfson chip than any iPod ever made.
For an Audiophile tablet, get the Nokia N1. It contains a Wolfson DAC. The new head of Nokia technology in the US is the former head of Dolby.
Is it just me or is the demand for CPU power by games currently in relative stagnation? I'm due to for a new build soon but my 2500K still handles things fine, and it's not even overclocked yet. Feels like the thing could go for another three and a half years.
There are a few games (Arma 3 and Kerbal Space Program come to mind) that are CPU intensive, so I'd suggest picking up a 4690k on sale during cybermonday. Just so you can have that headroom.
No reason to get an i7 though.
K8 is about the maximum one would need for gaming and other casual uses, but want it or not the bloat and marketing doesn't rest so you gotta buy the latest shit or be made fun of.
I predict that by 2024 there will be no programmer capable of running space invaders on pentium 4.
Because graphically intense stuff that is optimized well has not much need of a CPU?
Why do you think you REQUIRE the game to use 100% gpu and 100% cpu power?
Why does the fact you can keep a CPU for years without any real downside seem like a bad thing to you?

Daily reminder that the HD800 is GOAT.
Old one has already 404'd
I don't have any idea why, but xiaomi pistons give me the biggest boner ever. Anyone else have this problem? I just ordered a pair on amazon, what should I expect?
Decent sound and build quality for price and for a chink company. There are other that are arguably better, but these are pretty damn good, and if you really like the aesthetics of them, then there's no debate there...
They sounded good already out of the box, and now that it's been a few months and well past the burn-in time, I'm very impressed with how they ended up. Especially considering the price point. Plus they feel solid in the ears and look really premium. I've gotten a ton of compliments and questions about them.
Thinking about doing the filter removal mod but I'm afraid I'll fuck up the metal grates. Has anyone done this successfully, and is it worth it?

see this, wat do?
Are there any darknets other than freenet that actually host websites on the network itself instead of just obfuscating the IP of the server that content is hosted on?
After the recent shutdown of many hidden services, now would seem to be the time to implement a completely decentralized anonymous network. We need a system with better anonymity, no centralized points of failure, distributed databases with fully malleable encryption, and public key cryptography immune to quantum attacks if there is ever to be any hope of stopping the government's internet censorship.
Let's bore each other with some stories, /g/.

what's the future for processors? will we hit a plateau and end up resorting to some new theory of machines and logic?
also, would it be possible to make a whole CPU from discreet transistors? how big would it be?
Probably some grapheme based technology.
Yeah you could build a CPU with transistors. You could build one with tubes and marbles if you wanted to (in theory), but I don't know how large either would be.
Post technology that we thought looked nice, but today are hideous.
Not true the PowerBook G4 looks good even by todays standards.
Can someone explain to me why the fuck HDMI capture devices are so expensive? Is it some agreed monopoly to keep prices so high on them?
I tried looking for specifications on how to build my own but found absolutely nothing. Any ideas on what to do?
Are there any onion sites devoted to technology discussions / coding?
After the DPD thing on Stackexchange, I'm afraid of asking any "interesting" questions there or even here.
