>>52332256 desu I agree, it seems like the backlash to "PC culture" has been far greater than the supposed culture itself >>52332264 Meh. It seems faster when scrolling and stuff but if you test it side by side with something like chrome, it doesn't perform. >>52332267 Too hard for who? You? >>52332274 That's not an opinion >>52332286 I agree

>>52332464 >YIFY was just fine because they allowed people with shitty connections to watch their favorite movies and shows If I couldn't get at least 100Mb/s unlimited connection in my area, I would honestly move.
>>52332680 I recently got myself a 24" 4k monitor (an upgrade for 24" 1080p). You don't know what you're talking about, and you clearly never had one. >>52332719 >Europe is one country >Everyone speaks 1 language -you
1.44Mb/1.4Mb Floppy? I still use them, every megabyte is filled with meaningful data. rarely ever a bad disk, always just work, find a fat stack of them, throw them in and data is still there and perfectly readable from 20 years go. Read/Write time is really not that bad for such an old tech. Floppies feel durable unlike CD's. Floppies don't seem as big as flash drives because they are relatively thin, thinner than a USB port.
Since you are dealing with small media you have to reduce the size of your data, which means saving .docx's isn't going to be cost effective. you will be forced to use regular files. this is great because regular files are perfectly small and easy to work with.
you can compress the files and use encryption that will secure your data and save you space. sure you can do this with a HDD and .docx files but who does it? it's rare. With a floppy setup you are compelled to compress with a password because it saves you space. Therefor you are almost forced into the good habit of encrypting your data. You are also encouraged to make sure that you are storing more meaningful data and not just random jpgs that you can easily source somewhere else.
2) less is more: network edition
if all of your files are encrypted/compressed and small in size, this means using a slower data connection is no longer a pain. you can pick up a landline for $10 a month and dial-in to your computers. you can easily build a dial-in only network to move files around and gain access to systems that otherwise would be inaccessible do to security systems, filters, firewalls, etc.
now here i am not saying only use dial-up, i'm saying you can supplement your fiber with dial-up. for instance if one person has a modem and another person has a modem, they can transfer large packages between each other and then send keys, certs, etc through a dial up system that is not monitored. Fax is still a thing because of privacy.
>>52332719 >you convert it >convert it pic related
you fucker don't convert anything if your brain is functioning at at least 1% of its capacity you don't have to think about that and just spill the beans if you have to think a nanosecond about how to convert time you have severe brain damage and should see a doctor to remove the nails or whatever you've got stuck in it
>>52332739 I am gonna specify Italy now. Also I know many other European places say it the same way, while people from USA dont. Stop sperging and making assumptions >>52332739 If you have plenty of money to throw away I wont judge you. There are people buying gold plated hdmi cables too
>>52332814 Why would I read 22:34 when what I want to know is 10:34 >>52332852 Again, if you have the money to throw thats fine. That means you already have a high end gpu powerful enough for 4k, a reasonably top of the line cpu and also have cleared away other important upgrades such as an ssd. If you looked at your computer with some spare 500$ in your hands and wondered what could you spend them on then 4k looks like a great choice
It's 2016, points 1 and 2 are suggesting that we use technology that is 20 or more years old... but the point is to be efficient and most of the hardware from these times are not at all efficient. We have computers today that are more powerful than the ones from these periods that cost less than $50 and run on 1.21watts... or less is some cases! They typically have serial connections that you can hook a fax modem up to, usb for floppies, NICs for network connections... perfect.
4) less is more: your social life
Believe it or not, while this all seems neckbeard as fuck, it's actually anti-neckbeard. Neckbeards tend to spend too much time on their computers, because there is a huge world out there, a million languages to learn all the time, so many social websites to browse, forums to read, IRC's to chat on... it's endless.
If you deal with less data you will have more time, a smaller system will not allow you endless opportunity for distraction. You will be able to do what you need to do, and be done and move on to real life things like going to social gatherings, meeting people, etc.
>>52332702 I think elon is pretty cool and all that shit. BUT, they take advantage of the no dealer thing so that ANY repairs have to be done by Tesla. Pretty much nothing is self fixable on your car. And if you get into an accident have it repaired at a regular mechanic tesla will disable your super charger access automatically.
Its the apply idea applied to cars, they lock you in their ecosystem, instead of trusting their customers they keep you on a leash.
Also, its only a matter of time before there is a law to limit car speed, or to have ability to shut cars off. Tesla can already do this.
>>52332947 >That means you already have a high end gpu powerful enough for 4k I have been running this 4k monitor on R7 260x for quite a long time, and only recently got GTX 960 to it which is more than enough I know someone that has a 4k tv connected to iGPU and it runs just fine.
Why do everyone assume you get 4k monitor and the computer for gaming? I hate it. 4k is brilliant for everything BUT gaming, unless you don't mind dropping details a bit.
I'll rate your opinions, because this thread triggers me. >>52332256 4/10, they ruin *some* of technlogy >>52332264 5/10, it works, but Microsoft has already proven not to be ashamed of letting you know they analyze your visited websites. >>52332267 9/10, true, and time consuming (fun though) >>52332286 6/10, important as in the worse it looks the less anti-features >>52332386 7/10 Mac is at least UNIX-like, Windows is the black crippled sheep. Mac is still a babby OS though. >>52332400 6/10, until >telemetry is harmless the datamining is going to fuck you over sooner or later, they don't "just" do that Android & Linux are pretty good desu >>52332436 2/10, probably new to Linux spouting an ignorant opinion >>52332464 >/g/ is too full of itself 3/10 True, but what do you really expect? >>52332528 5/10 Scrolling and highlighting is not coding. >>52332559 There's no conspiracy, but companies are turning software into centralized shit. Each company is fucking over their dumb users individually. >>52332567 0/10 very edgy, very young >>52332583 5/10 meh not really >>52332592 1/10 enjoy you're rsi >>52332595 The botnet makes it bad, not the functionality.
>>52332464 >desktop threads are shit... Yes, also related to anime posting. >tiling WMs are shit... I like them (bspwm to be specific), they have their uses. >there's too much anime around /g/ Yes, I was fine with it when it was used like standard reaction images, but now it gets posted without reason.
>>52334007 i looked through all of the updates, the ones in question for 7 and 8.1 do not show up on 8.0. i couldn't upgrade it to 10 even if i wanted to. i know my pic is outdated, but the other updates did not show either. all i get are security updates
>>52334989 it's actually just that the software base that the console provides or allows for, not the hardware... while, it is extremely helpful that the hardware stays consistent it is most important for the developers of the games have a consistent platform to code for. In every console's life you see developers coding more and more and more efficiently as the console ages because they learn how to optimally code for their environment a little at a time, eventually reaching a point where the code is basically as efficient as it can be and also by practical to work with.
hardware for consoles does change over a consoles life but little at a time, and the changes are well planned for, unlike in the PC world where any warehouse in china can start mass producing a usb devices that users then can decide to start hooking up themselves.
>>52335753 >developers coding more and more and more efficiently as the console ages because they learn how to optimally code for their environment a little at a time I imagine this generation will be moderately different. XBONE and PS4 are running largely unmodified x86 architectures, which people have known how to program efficiently on for the past two decades.
>>52336479 when i say they're coding optimizes it's usually between the memory and the gpu not for the actual cpu, though in the case of the playstation 3 with the 9 core cell there was a bit of a learning curve to get that thing running well... i do believe that the cell processor was also the gpu though. most of the latency and optimization takes place between memory and gpu, depending on where the northbridge lives you can skip the cpu all together.
