Hey /g/ i have decided that ill spend a few big bucks on a laptop, i will be using it strictly for college of course. This is where you come in, I want to know whats a good cheap computer under $500 that i can use to do my school work and shit on. Any suggestions ? I preferably want one that will not only cost less but also last me a while. If you think i should raise my budget for a better more reliable laptop let me know what will work best.
What podcasts are you listening to /g/?
I am mixing 1866 and 1500 ram or some shit. Computer will work most of the time but then gets all retarded and won't power on or post. Only the fans will run and I sometimes get the memok led while other times I get the graphics card led.
What could be the problem you think?
Why is there such a large presence of Indians in tech, is this reflected in real life on the job or is it just a /g/ meme?
India has invested heavily in tech schools for the past 15 years or so. India has a population of 1.2 Billion.
I've had to deal with a lot of them at my previous job, we outsourced a lot of our "boilerplate" code to them (UML class diagrams to implement, mostly) and we would fill in the technical stuff (in theory, we ended up rewriting a good 60% of what came back anyway). Now I heard that they started outsourcing to Vietnam instead. They still have to correct a few things but overall their work is much better.
I was in a car on my phone and I saw I was connected to something called at&t micro cell. Upon further research I found out it was some sort or repeater. I was just wondering if someone could set something like that up and use it to steal passwords and stuff.
I need a new phone, wich is the best you know for less than 400 dollars /g/ ?
- Battery lasts forever:
- Standby up to 27 days!
- Talk time up to 22 hours!
- Mp3 player up to 53 hours!
- Dual sim
- Easily operated with 1 hand
- Weighs 75% less than a smartphone
Do you really want to pay 10 times more for some clunky micro tablet that can play mobile strike and download crappy recipe apps?
I was wondering if there was any way I could calibrate the joystick on a gamecube controller so that I could set the actual values of the analog input. I'm guessing i need EEPROM programming but have no clue on how to go about that. Basically i want to be able to instantiate the resting point and the max/min values of it's x/y and have it stay that way even when unplugged. I have googled it a few times and only get answers pointing to emulators which is just virtualization of the inputs and doesn't actually affect the controller itself. Any help would...
Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
it would be a one time fix, yes, but it would have to last and be accurate. I should have said that the application would be for Super smash bros melee and the game is very particular about small expressions expressions
What is your favorite tech YouTube channel?
Pic related for me
/g/, how do I into Mini ITX cable management?
My powersupply gets here Saturday and just my case headers, SSD, and fan cables are starting to look messy.
/g/ i need your help. I just bought a new internet provider and well i went to speedtest it and i got 15mb down and around 1.5 up anyways when i watch youtube and stuff everything runs smooth on HD but when i actually download something it goes down to 40-100 kb/s why is that?
Has anyone noticed that boot leg OS' tend to suck after awhile? On a clean install it works great, but then after a month or two everything stops working.
I don't know if it's the tool I used to automatically serialize windows, or something else I downloaded, but it fucks shit up after a time, and I have to start from square #1
How does one zoom in on a VM in VMWare? I know with virt-manager on Linsux I could easily scale a VM up or down.
My ReactOS is sooo tiny!
This is a pretty good Windows simulator though
Why is gentoo so fucking hard to install? Might as well use Ubuntu and save 20+ hours of my life..
It's so fucking bloated, though. If Gentoo and Arch aren't your cup of tea, try Lubuntu/Xubuntu or Puppy. Don't fall for the Mint meme - it's almost as bloated as Ubuntu with a lighter shell.
A girl I've known since high school reached out to me today asking if I had a keygen for Word 2013, I told her to use LibreOffice instead. Did I do right /g/?
>wait years for Polaris
>still have to wait for another 2 months
This is insanity.
How does /g/ do their computing?
Just like Saint Stallman his holy self.
On a free as in choice OS, Debian, because it isn't communism like Trisquel which forces you to not run proprietary programs, Debian lets you choose to be fully free as in freedom and lets you install proprietary shitware if needed, I am the embodiment of capitalism
" in October 2014 Poettering complained that the "Open Source community is full of assholes, and I probably more than most others am one of their most favourite targets." Poettering went on to put some blame on Linus Torvalds and other kernel developers for the state of the community"-Lennart Poettering
This is the victim mindset. The life blood of beta males. Are you promoting systemd? Then you support this. I use systemd, I don't enjoy it. Ways to stop this cuckery?
I have thousands of pictures (many memes too). How do I find duplicates when the images are not of the same size, not of the same resolution and not of the same type (some are PNGs some are JPEGs)?
Please no (spy)cloud services. I'd like to run the program locally.
Well, /g/? Is there a way?
Awesome Duplicate Photo Finder
works awesome and is free, you can sort by percentage of similarity or only show 100% matches. used it to clean out my stash of personal pics of a sexual nature that i had dupes of
What cables are these please
Can you post a picture of the front of the socket and also tell us what country you are in.
Fucking no way is that power unless someone has butchered it, not even the third world uses cables that tiny for power, those cables are fucking minuscule.
I think it could be phone wiring.
>thin phone meme
Story time. Tell me about your worst interview questions. Pic related, it was a home test no google allowed and the site was checkout if you where typing of your keyboard.
>Where do you see yourself in 3 years?
>GOOGLE IS NOT A REAL COMPANY
>YOU'RE JUST A BOTNET IN A DRESS
Let's see what's the crappiest PC someone can possible post to 4chan.
Starting with a Pentium D, 1GB of RAM and a blazing 9400GT GPU.
Who needs Overwatch when you've got OPEN ARENA!!
I get this on boot up on repeat after trying to upgrade to the Anniversary update...luckily I can just revert to a previous build but I'm completely at a loss for how to get past it from not even booting and BSOD on startup on repeat
>Moore's law has held strong for processors, making our smartphones exponentially more powerful with every passing year. However,battery technologyhas proven to be a frustrating barricade. Although our phones are more intelligent about how they manage battery life, we've been using essentially the same kinds of batteries for twenty years with only incremental boosts to performance. That is, until now.
>Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology are reporting that they've discovered a way to make lithium-ion batteries fully twice as powerful as previous designs. This design is in alignment with current manufacturing procedures, which means these double-charged batteries could be hitting the market as early as next year. Curious as to how it works?
>In traditional lithium-ion batteries, ions move from a negatively charged graphite cathode to a positively charged anode through an electrolyte solution. Graphite has proven to be an excellent cathode because it's stable and can hold a relatively high amount of ions.
>What would be better than graphite is a lithium-metal foil, which has a far greater capacity for ions. Researchers have known this for some time, but the problem is that lithium-metal has a tendency to react violently with electrolyte solutions, causing overheating and even catching fire.
>However, researchers with SolidEnergy Systems, a company with its roots in MIT, have developed a new form of electrolyte solution that doesn't overreact to lithium-metal. With this technology in place, batteries can be made half the size of modern batteries and still retain their full capacity. Alternatively, you can make batteries comparable in size to today's batteries, and they'll last you twice as long.
Pretty fekin sweet, ehh /g/? Now anything running on lithium can have twice the capacity, half the weight, or somewhere in between including tools and phones and cars!
So what gives with Windows 10 consistency across multiple devices:
I have three Windows 10 VMs created with Win7 ultimate and the DAZ launcher. Two of which show different options in some context menus than the other one. It's just sort of not the same, yet they all show the same
>Windows 10 Pro 64-bit (10.0, Build: 10586)
But that's nothing compared to my desktop computers (I just can't check my desktop at home right now for build number, because I'm at my parents place). Just one example is that the log-in...

just noticed that 2 of the 3 VMs also show a different bios than the other one. That would imply that there are differences in builds, according to minute differences in hardware though, wouldn't it?
>Buy/order computer parts to build new computer for myself
>Really excited for it
>MFW waiting for them to get here
I WANT MY NEW COMPUTER NOW!!!! RIGHT NOW!!!!
