The news was first reported by China News Service where a director of the Zhongguancun National Innovation Development Zone (Z-park), Guo Hong, told members of the Standing Committee of the 14th Beijing Municipal People's Congress that Z-park will launch a pilot program to help qualified foreign nationals obtain a "Chinese green card." http://www.globaltimes.cn/content/957258.shtml
What are you working on, /g/?
BTW, I am new to this shit and I just checked that fucking CAT6 patch cables are more than $3 a piece. What the fuck man.
wut right do they have?
Where is the market for functional laptops?
We have a choice between A) plastic trashpiles with obsolete hardware and 1366x768 screens, B) (admittedly well made) MacBooks and their clones - which can't be modified or repaired in any way, or C) half baked gimmicks like convertibles and tablets with cheap keyboards.
Where does a person get a non-trash, non-soldered, non-gimmick laptop in 2015 going on 2016? I understand the margins aren't there for a functional market but I don't want to spend $1500+ for good hardware and build quality saddled with "value adds" like touchscreens and pens and shit.
I use an Asus UX303LN/LB

I'm a complete newfag to linux. I have dual boot for windows and linux mint 17.2. My VPN client works fine on windows. I also have it on linux and connect through openvpn through terminal. It connects but I I can't get any websites to load with Firefox or opera. Any advice on how to fix? Please forgive my newfagginess. Any help would be much appreciated.
I had this issue too with Linux Mint. I am able to connect via terminal in other distros no problem, but I can't in mint. Fortunately I found a work around in mint that worked for me.
For some reason 4chan thinks this is spam so just replace the spaces with dots.

Just follow this guide but instead of HMA just use your vpn's CA certs etc. I couldn't ever get it to work in the terminal but I could via GUI.
Instead of plunging my phone with a cable I am gonna plug something else with a cable and put my phone on it
So futuristic so high tech
The kicker? Wireless charging is slower.
Its a fucking gimmick feature that was brought to market just because it looks interesting.
Never in 20 years of working with computers have I worn out any plug whatsoever.

So I bought a Nexus 5 recently and everything is a nightmare right now.
I installed CM12.1 on it, but it randomly started shutting off if I left it sitting around at 100% charge with the screen off.
So thinking it was maybe the version of Cyanogenmod being fucked I wiped the system partition and flashed CM11. Now I can't even decrypt the phone. I can boot into recovery mode just fine, it recognizes the password. But as soon as I try booting into CM it keeps saying "Try again" whenever I enter the password.
What the fuck is going on?
Have you tried using a factory image instead of CM ?
I've had so many problems with CM and other custom ROMs on my Nexus 4 that I've just given up on them. Rooted factory image on the other hand just werks.
i gotta interview at the apple store
how do i git hired?
Okay /g/, I made this picture last night comparing different codecs(FLAC, OPUS, MP3, and AAC).
For the first test, I encoded all the lossy coded in 320
I chose a song with with an original flac file with a sampling rate of 48000khz to test the encoding of these different formats.
As the picture shows, AAC is the superior format for high bitrate. Out of all the lossy encodes OPUS was the largest in filesize, but only by 10kb
but all three lossy encodes seem to not differ from flac
next will be low bit rate test
And now the low bitrate test
somehow my Opus encoder kept on using a sampling rate of 48000khz and there is no way for me to change this, but it shouldn't hurt anything.
You can clearly see that Opus is much better than AAC at lower bitrates. I didn't use MP3 in this test because its just pointless
What exactly is your point? what do you want to convey to us? what format do you want us to use? which format do you use? and what is it that itches you the most about other formats that finds them unacceptable?
