Are self-vacuuming bots worth it?
I don't really have a problem with vacuuming myself, but I figured it'd be kinda neat to have this machine that auto-cleans my room occasionally.
I just want to know if anyone has experience with them.
Get one that uses an algorithm to determine the path rather than ones that just randomly go about
newer roombas are mapping you're home and selling the data.
when i had one it was obnoxiously loud on wood floors, and always got caught in cables that weren't neatly tucked away.
How do I know which ones use pathfinding? Does it say
>newer roombas are mapping you're home and selling the data.
Wouldn't that require some type of external connection to the outside? I'm sure it's possible to disable telemetry data on it.
Also, how do you know that data isn't being used to better tweak the algorithms, so that it can find problematic setups and therefore have workarounds for it?
If that data is being used to help a tech company build better algos, then I'm all for it.
You have 800 dollars to buy a rack mount server.

Why ever use Windows?
Hell, I just recently reinstall Windows 10 creators and I've never had a smoother install. Every single driver (even AMD graphics) and update was installed before I even had time to change web browsers
Hey /g/, free shirt from Google, trips decide what to put on it
What is /g/'s opinion on the surface pro 4? I'm really considering getting one.
HIT GOOGLE WHERE IT HURTS
So you want to kill google? And not just kill it, fucking demolish it? Three things need to happen. All of Google's money comes from advertising, analytics, and hosting. To kill google we need to drive up their operational costs while lowering their profits.
Fuck with their advertisements
If you have ever worked with adsense before you will know that the one thing they absolutely despise is telling people to click ads. They want people who are actually interested in products to click advertisements, because only they will be persuaded to purchase products. On top of that, companies pay google per click. If they are paying a ton of money and few people are buying their products, they will pull out.
>STEP 1: Go on to youtube, google shopping, or anyplace else with adsense ads in private browsing mode on a vpn or proxy.
>STEP 2: Click all the ads you possibly can
>STEP 3: Hop on a new proxy/vpn/tor circuit, and clear out the browser
>STEP 4: Repeat
LOSS OF PROFIT
Fuck with their file storage
Google stores everything you upload, and keeps it there even if it gets "deleted." Storing stuff costs lots of money, and high speed ssd drives to keep it all on aren't cheap. The more you upload, the more they pay.
>STEP 1: Choose a platform that allows you to upload files(eg: youtube, drive, gsites, ect)
>STEP 2: Get a file that is at or over the maximum file limit
>STEP 3: Upload it again, and again, and again, and again
>EXTRA STEP: If you are doing youtube make a huge file with a ton of random music, text on the screen, and game footage. Their matching algorithm will have to go through your whole 1hr + video and match everything there for monitization.
>LOSS OF PROFIT
Fuck with analytics
Google is so popular in the analytics world because it can show advertisers what type of people are viewing their page (see http://theoutpost.observer/article.php?id=32 for a good explanation). If we can make this data unreliable then people will stop using google services.
>STEP 1: Get a huge word dictionary
>STEP 2: Make a small script that searches something entirely random every 20 minutes or so
>STEP 3: Let it go as long as possible on as many accounts as possible
>STEP 4: Go to random pages with tracking on them to give them fucked results
>LOSS OF PROFIT
Fuck with the advertisers
If companies think their users won't buy their products because of google then they will pull out and stop funding them. Youtube's budget got slashed when a few guys pulled out, just imagine what would happen if we could get a ton of people to leave.
>STEP 1: Get a huge list of "medium" sized advertisers. Companies that are small enough that it is easy to get a message through to them but big enough that they have a large advertising budget.
>STEP 2: Get huge volumes of well written emails to them saying that you (a past customer) are highly against google and don't want to purchase from a company that supports them. Talk about the quality of their products and say you don't want to take your business elsewhere. Sweet talk them.
>STEP 3: Get fucktons of people to do this. Gamertavistock style, but bigger.
>LOSS OF PROFIT

Why in the fucking world is there so much thermal paste on the stock Ryzen HSFs?
I found my old IBM Thinkpad 600s under my bed today. They both have broken motherboards, and from what I've read are too old to run Puppy.
However, I really like the looks of the machine. Is there any way I could easily use the screen, keyboard, and speakers for another, newer computer?
I saw one time... you can buy a controller or something for the lcd and for de keyboard, and conect it to raspberry.
If you figure out the way of putting the raspberry inside, you have a "new" Ibm thinkpad 600
I have one and that was an idea i had.
>Is there any way I could easily use the screen, keyboard, and speakers for another, newer computer?
if you have to ask then the answer is no
you'd have to re-route the I/O from whatever shit numale toy SBC you'd disgrace it with, plug up the holes you can't find anything for in a way that doesn't look like shit and adapt what you have to IBM's standards if you want your gay nerd fashion accessory to not look like a clock boy abomination
just run NT 4 on them if you can get them working and be done with it, it will be way more useful than some faggy lightweight distro anyway
I got one of these back in 2005 from a college chick who was going to bin it. Ran Windows 98. Unfortunately it smelled like burning plastic and the battery didn't hold a charge. I got rid of it but I wish I still had it.
Who /satelliteinternet/ here?

AMD literally recommends a penis shaped thermal paste application on their Threadripper chips
Is this a worse meme than water cooling PC components?
Streaming is not convenient for ultrawide monitors, are you dumb? Do you even own one? You have to run your games in windowed mode at a small resolution to have the chat open
You're correct about editing though.

Why encryption dont is a mandatory feature in windows OS?
>Why encryption dont
I don't know the answer to that, but I do know that you can easily use LUKS on Unix and best part it's probably not backdoored
