reposting it here

My friend, who's into programming, told me about that idea for a website he had recently, and that he will start to work on it once he's finished with his uni work (he's very overwhelmed atm)

I really loved his idea, and as his project involved some complex stuff, I worked on it for the past few weeks because i was bored and wanted to learn new stuff.

The problem is, I got very involved into the project by myself, without telling him, that I completed it, and am very proud of what I've made. it's the first project that I work on from scratch, and I really like it.

My friend hasn't really started working on it yet.

As it's my first real project, I'd like to use it on my portfolio, especially considering that I'll try to intend a school somewhat related to webdev next year.

tl;dr, stole an idea to a very good friend of mine, how to cope with that?

chargers provide nothing but the positive and negative power leads, so there's no recognition to occur. there's either power or not. if you have a multimeter you can measure the voltage across the outside and inside of the barrel connector to at least see if your power brick works at all, but you probably don't have one.

most likely it's your laptop though because those charger bricks are pretty simple circuits and are reliable in normal usage even when they're made cheap as shit so it's not likely to be the problem.

I need a newer operating system for school and work. W7 just doesn't cut it anymore, sadly.

I tried W10 for the past 2 days and it's quite unstable for the shit I use it for. It wouldn't even pin things to the start menu and it's annoying to try to disable all the telemetry stuff.

I never used 8.1 so I'm looking for some opinions on it. Could I have a more stable and reliable experience if I stick with 8.1 + some customizations like classic shell?
What stuff would you guys recommend?

8.1 is pretty shit, and it won't allow you to alt-tab at times out of unresponsive programs, and it calls indexing every time you make a search and tries to probe for apps too before returning results. I'm not sure about W10, I'm sure it's just as bad but now it can spy on you whilst dwm.exe ignores resizing events. Rather use Ubuntu and take Canonical up the ass than Microsoft, tbqh familie.

>>52456835
You're supposed to make one, is it mounted? You need a /boot/efi partition formatted with mkfs.vfat -F32 /dev/sd**, and set it to ESP/boot partition with flags in gdisk/parted. Then, you take a bootloader image (i.e. GRUB2, rEFInd, ELILO) and stick it in a folder named EFI. Then copy your kernel image and initramfs into the partition.

I'd love to use it for work, and I already use Debian on my tower. But both school and work pretty much require me to use either 10 or 8.

I've been given a nearly impossible task.

My mother in law wants a new laptop, except it can't be a big laptop- needs to be larger than 10 inches, smaller than 14- ideally, she wants a twelve. Next, it has to be light- anything that weighs over 2kg is too heavy apparently.

All she'd use it for is typing, emails, browsing the internet and watching the tele online. My first thought was a tablet, but she's determined to have a keyboard and windows for word etc, which I guess with a tablet is still doable but I'm not sure what to look for.

However, she only has a budget of around £200, in which case I'm now looking for second hand. Any ideas? She's looking at a Lenovo Yoga - but the model shes looking at only has 2g and didn't look like it could even handle web browsing on the advert (took 4 seconds just to tab).

Any ideas?

you probably mount something with a filesystem that is not supported by windows.
it can only read FAT, NTFS, exFAT, Live File System and ReFS.

any iso file should be natively mountable by windows 8 or newer.

you could try 7z.

>>52458718
this depends way too much on the program.

if the program has a lot of shared libraries/resources that it loads from the HDD then it would probably be faster to put it on the SSD.
if it uses only native libraries then it would be probably better to have the OS on the SSD instead.

I'd rather have a snappy OS though than 1 second off a load time of something I launch once.

With a vasectomy they cut the tubes that bring sperm to your ejaculate. So you'll be literally shooting planks as no more sperm cells will be present. Other than the desired sterilization it has very little effect.

Removing the balls has major consequences, among others: hard to get an erection, no more orgasms, lesser testosterone will probably alter your body (muscle, breasts) and many more.

You should be able to upgrade to any processor using the same socket. Some chipset features, however, may not work after the upgrade. I wouldn't really recommend upgrading as the processors are insanely expensive, the i7 3740QM is 100 bucks more expensive than the desktop counterpart for less than half the performance. i5 3350u is about 240.

>>52459111
Yeah, VGA passthrough works so as long as you have QEMU and a VGA card, which only requires KVM. Native UEFI suggests that you may have properly installed GRUB but did not configure it correctly (works on Gentoo too). Try using a LiveUSB instead (it natively can be recognized as UEFI and will modprobe efivars automatically). This goes for both Debian and Arch.

He's a nice guy, though I heard he was molested and liked it in his "backspace" so now he's a pervert.

you dont have the standard files in their standard location, so when it parses for say your theme, its not in the offical location or the xdg location either

I'm about to start my bachelor's for information technology/server management but i've always thought it might be better to go with compsci (but intimidated by the math aspect of it -- i've never been bad at math, but never really good at it either)

could i get a quick rundown (not for lack of interest but i dont expect anyone to care enough to get too into detail) on where IT will get me versus compsci? and/or can anyone who HAS a BS in CompSci share their experience with it?

Compsci is engineering

I'm part of a private tracker, trying to get good boy points from seeding ad infinitum. I have a small computer perfect for that.
I have already downloaded a few torrents on my laptop. I've downloaded the files through transmission (gtk) and my "seedbox" is running transmission with the web interface.

Is it possible to transfer the torrents over so I can seed without redownloading first? Could I just drop the files in transmission's target directory, add the torrents, and expect transmission to detect them?

Advice is appreciated in advance.

I can't tell you from experience, but I've owned Xiaomi products in the past (Mi4c, Mi Note Premium). Hardware wise, they're pretty competitve, including their MediaTek offerings (like the Redmi series). Their MTK phones, though I think, are better done by companies like Umi/Lenovo/LeTv/Meizu/Bluboo, they come cheaper and typically with better screens and durability; Umi has great low end MTK phones, LeTv/Bluboo have great higher end MTK phones, and Lenovo screens are great. Xiaomi Snapdragon offerings are actually exceptionally good, like the ones I've owned, and I've never had them run hot despite what others say about 810.

Software-wise MIUI is alright, some phones have international versions, some do not. Unlike UMI phones they don't come pre-rooted but it's easy to do, as is installing Jewgle Play or F-Droid. The problem is rather than mounting the filesystem directly, there's a security abstraction and integrated fs suite known as Xiaomi Suite which is typically only available in Chinese (you'll need to download a downstream English one if you need it otherwise), which mediates file transfer, regardless of whether you're in MTP or PTP mode. ADB does work though.

i'd suggest just buying a refurbed card. 7950 sells for about 100-120 nowadays, i got 2 sapphire 7950 boost for 175. board and cpu is acceptable considering the price but honestly, it doesn't even matter what you buy right now as it is either too expensive or about to be phased out for "next gen hardware". 1.5/10 you tried.
>>
>>52467229
Unfortunately no store sells Thinkpads here in Russia, and I really don't want to use ebay for something that expensive.
Thanks anyway

What would you guys recommend? Someone is giving me the 750 Ti and the RAM for free so that is why it is part of the partpicker. The main thing I am concerned about is the board and cpu
>>
>>52467306
4690k and z97 whatever board. You won't have to upgrade for another 5 years.
>>
>>52467197
cyka blyat????

might as well use your phone senpai, chinkpads are only about $200 bucks online. i would suggest getting a lenovo g585 or a x86 chomebook.

>>52467306
if you choose intel you'll be able to upgrade right off the bat, as kaby lake uses the same socket as skylake. sacrifice may be some nsa jewery and they force you to upgrade to win10, but at least you'll enjoy decent performance for now. if you choose an amd build right now you're stuck as zen uses its own socket (integrated with its apu line as well, just like intel). amd chipsets are also god awful, you don't get full width in CF unless you have a 990FX board (which costs double), and the northbridge gets steaming hot routing pcie data. as a shill for amd, i'd honestly wait for zen to see what amd has to offer, but considering a build right now, i'd run i3 6100 with a decent z170 chipset about about 110. it's probably about 40-50 more expensive, however. also, as a dual core, its only 50% slower than the 8350 in multithreaded applications but somewhat cheaper.

I have a dumb question (pic related)

I'm using one of these bad boys
>http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B002SZEOLG?keywords=tp%20link%20wireless%20adapter&qid=1453028151&ref_=sr_1_11&sr=8-11
With my newly built PC. IThe adapter is about two and a half years old now. Whenever I connect to the internet with it and just browse 4chan or whatever it seems to be fine and stable, but as soon as I open qbittorrent, my connection spikes and fucks around, as seen in the pic. It gets so bad that the internet just disconnects then tries to connect again, successfully but drops again.
Last night my computer decided that it no longer recognised the USB and the whole computer just blue screened then wouldnt boot up again until I unplugged it.

My writing might be biased here but is it the fault of the adapter, or is it most likely a setting on qbittorrent? Ive been looking into it and the internet seems to think it's changing global max number of connections in the torrent client, or my ISP is throttling it - but on my previous laptop everything was fine, and that was only like a week ago now, same adapter. So I'm fucking confused.

Any ideas /g/?
