What fun tech related stuff have you done/acquired this year?
Pic related. Set a makeygo up with a can as a controller and let kids play games as a group on xmas eve. I also let kids use my phone with the lense kit which they were fond of. It all really made me smile to see kids listen for the explanation behind the "toys"

I attempted to kill myself by sticking a fork in a power socket. Unfortunately I lived, and was taken to an emergency room and my whole family was so worried, which made me feel like they cared, and now my right arm tingles all the time, but I think the electricity zapped my brain in just the right way to make me feel good and happy most of the time so it's a pretty good trade-off.

Is that really a thing? Holy fuck dude. Well, I guess I'm just glad you're okay now.
So if I'm a basic bitch who doesn't have time for Arch Linux and just want my shit to work, is Apple my only choice now? I really don't like Apple.
Do you think that Apples decision to ditch the 3.5 mm headphone jack for the iphone 7 will ruin their phone business? Honestly it could why would you want to pay extra money to get a special adaptor for the lightning port to plug your headphones in? Bluetooth headphones are even more expensive. And isn't the main complaint about iPhone 5c/6/6s etc that the phones are too thin?
Unless they're going to build a fucking DAC into the earbuds, it's still going to be an analog signal coming through the main connector, meaning it offers zero improvement over the current standard.
And this post is bait.
Does /g/ have any home security system? Did you set something up DIY or buy some pre-packaged thing? Got burglarized this morning and someone stole all my stuff the day after Christmas. I just wish I could have seen their face, I live in the ghetto and I'm sure it was a neighbor. ; _ ;
That really sucks, OP. The worst thing about getting robbed isn't the financial loss, it's the loss of security in your own home, and the emotional attachments to the stolen items.
I intend to set up a home security system based around a low-powered server and a handful of webcams. Just going to run USB over cat5 to their locations, and record the last two days or so to a smallish RAID setup.
How much would such a set up cost me? Know of any freeware that can be used to upload the footage to Google Drive or some other free online storage? I see there are usb motion sensors, or some security cams that have then built in. I'd just point one at my front door so when they kick it in it just gets a good picture of their face.
should I spin down my hard drives?
>want to change to xubuntu
>want to remove grub and partitions for fresh install

Was all the shitposting just a meme? (I know, ironic isn't?)

>yfw free software as a movement is dead
whys that? I've just started getting into it. Mostly because I'm pissed off about Windows10. 7 was alright but I don't want 10 shoved down my throat and now i'm learning all about free software and Stallman.

Is it okay to call yourself a "web designer" if you make websites in wordpress? I am starting to take clients as a private web designer, but all I'm doing is using websites to make pages. Is this okay?
Yeah, but there's no coding or anything. I just use a wordpress template and throw some content into it. I just started last week and am already making some decent looking web pages. I feel like I'm cheating or something though.
How do the pc builders of /g/ handle operating systems? Do you bite the bullet and pay for Windows 7? Resort to a life of piracy? Become an gentooman?
