Why is our cyberpunk future so shit?
Never in my life had a laptop that was so hard to get the hard drive out of
Now I finally got the keyboard off and find this fucking ribbon covering the hard drive
Any good advice to remove ribbon without destroying it? I tried pulling it out but it's fucking stuck in there.
I swear to God I'm never buying ASUS again
So here's the deal. My new job is blocking most websites and known VPN services/proxies. I have a Raspberry Pi running Raspbian and doing basically nothing.
What steps/software should I use to transform it into a VPN server from home? I could connect through SSH and make a tunnel maybe? Please halp
>"That time of year"
>Shop for VPSs overseas outside of Obama States of America (40 days thank god fuck that illiterate closet gay nigger)
>None under $25
What went wrong? From 2010-2015 it was open season on VPSs under $15/year easily. Now I can't find any. I refuse to pay more than $15 because some of these shitty VPS providers go under or screw you over, which has happened to me a bunch of times already.
My T20 speakers died and I was pretty happy with them. What speakers in the same price range should I replace them with or should I just get the same model again?
When did you stop caring about the presentation of your guts?
The happened to me one time
I hadn't opened my case is years and there were some spiders chilling and a dead roach
I taped up anywhere they could get out and ran prime95 for 3 days
Roasted those fuckers

Are you Team Velour or Team Leather?
/g/ I moved to a new building for uni, and my WiFi is always slow as fuck, I can'y play CS-GO on 200ms.
My neighbours are old people, can I somehow get into their wifi and use theirs?
My Asus Radeon HD 7970 has been declining in performance and crashing/overheating with even the lightest loads for quite some time. Took the bait and bought it cheaply from eBay used and without warranty. Not happening again.
Now I'm thinking of switching to Nvidia and, with about $400 to spend, I'm trying to find the sweet spot, the best deal of price vs performance. I'll also consider Radeon cards if you'd recommend me one since I haven't regretted a purchase that /g/ recommended yet. My current front-runner is the GTX 1060 with 6 GB Vram. Should I?
When I last purchased an SSD (~2012) the generally recommended brands were Samsung, Intel and maybe Crucial. Has this changed? I'm looking to buy a 250-500 GB one now.

What are you working on, /g/?
It's 2016 and we're still not living in the cyberpunk world
What went wrong?
>he doesn't deploy black ice while flying through a virtual representation of corporate security infrastructure
How will technology be great again in 2017?
Less importing of pajeets?
QWERTY will return to mobile
Wingdings 10 will fix all bugs related to user-scheduled updates. Mass exodus to *nix/OSX
NSA does NSA things
4chan finally shuts down
Stuff you use that you'll probably regret
let's see how smart is /g/

abcd abd ab b
Really makes you think...

I am looking to install an app on my windows laptop that allows me to view my live camera feed from my phone. I would need to be able to log in to view the webcam while I am not around it. The catch is that I need to be able to log in and view the camera without it affecting the operations of the laptop or interrupt any live feeds that may be going on.
I looked into prey project and it is intended to be a recovery tool for lost or stolen devices. It has a monthly membership fee and does not indicate the ability to view the camera feed on the devices.
I am still hoping to find a nice app/program.
I installed linux mint for my grandmother that was sick of Windows. She tells me that it freezes on her at random intervals, and doing different things. Managing pictures, internet shopping, playing flash games, etc. Could this be a problem with xorg?
Details in pic related.
Now what C fags?
Hey /g/, I've become remarkably uncomfortable with the amount of surveillance I am under on my home internet connection (other local users, not NSA people that know anyway).
What methods might they be employing to gain access to my internet history/account information? (And yes, I'm sure they're monitoring my usage in some capacity)

Which browser is truly patrician, /g/?
Anyone else genuinely dislike this guy? He seems like an autist in the worst kind of ways. All his opinions seem to be nonsensical and based on his own very parochial anxieties, even stuff unrelated to open-source software.
I agree with a large portion of what he says, but his methods for expressing his ideas are pretty cringeworthy and he seems to have zero concept of manners. I would not fault you for disliking the man.
Umm, did you just assume his gender?
Plus he eats shit from his feet in from of an audience.
Are HDDs completely obsolete now?
Hey /g/, im gonna try to make my story as short as possible. I never had access to any technology or internet at home until i was 16 (2 years ago). As a result, i have been left behind of the digital age and have no experience whatsoever in consumer technology. I am currently pursuing tech certifications (CompTIA a+) and learning as much as I can to get up to speed and know everything there is about tech, and become an IT professional. Thoughts and advice would be much appreciated
Build a PC. A REAL PC. Not some recipe you found online or some LTT shillbox. Learn what you need to consider, start shopping, and plan your build. Also, circuit fuckery is a good idea. Raspberry pi is nope.
Recommend some themes and icon themes for xfce
you can pickup netbooks running intel gma 950 for next to nothing these day

ITT: great software linux users will never have
Could we get a GameBoy thread? Amazing and nostalgic, these devices are!
