You guys do the same shit with thinkpads. You suggest products that are far inferior at times for seemingly no reason.
Hi G! Is it possible to geo locate someone who is calling me? One of my clients is claiming to be in Europe and wants me to cover his overdraft. I'll put my neck on the line for him if he really is traveling abroad but not if he's just sitting around not wanting to be responsible. So if he calls me, can I trace his location?
What went wrong?
Raptor Computing Systems are now taking preorders for the Talos II
Why aren't you fags talking about this yet?
Because we've had NNTP for decades.
Also IPFS can't work with the present glut of digital data that major sites accumulate. It's going to be good for minor sites, but larger sites would never "fit" on an IPFS server.
/g/ and /tech/ and lainchan have been all over IPFS and GNUnet and Zeronet for years now, on and off.
Usenet isn't anyhow similar to IPFS, is it?
Guaranteed maybe, but nodes still cache data that wasn't pinned by the operator. If everyone has free space on their nodes, something no one has pinned is bound to stay around.
Explain this, winfags

What is the best Linux distro for academic use? Mostly applied statistics, data work/analysis, numerics, some work on remote server.
I have used Arch with lts kernel and Xfce for the past five years. I need to buy a new laptop soon.
Arch has been very stable for me, and the upkeep wasn't nearly as much work as people here often proclaim it to be. Nevertheless, things like broken font rendering etc are starting to get on my nerves.
Xfce is also sometimes less than optimal (grid tiling doesn't work properly for many applications, Thunar used to be almost broken for quite some time).
I need to get a new laptop soon. What are the alternatives? Ideally I do not lose a full day of work setting up Arch (Yes I know about Antergos).
I like Arch because the AUR has things like rstudio, qgis, sage and basically any package you could ever need for the type of work I do easily accessible.
What are good alternatives? Ubuntu? Repositories are not as complete but I could probably make it work. Fedora? Never used it. One of the obscure niche distros commonly promoted on /g/?
Also, is KDE a good replacement for XFCE?
Academia general I guess. I actually have no formal training in CS or Engineering.
what IT thing should i learn to do /g/ ?
Welcome to the botnet.
Is it really as good as they say? I hate firefox and #googlegate is crazy.
What's /g/'s opinion on trackball mice?
Used to use one with my laptop so that I could mouse in tight spaces without having to trackpad. A family member of mine uses one to avoid wrist pain otherwise caused by normal mice.
Cool for both of those cases.
Why would you use NAS hard drives as a normal desktop drive?
Whether you run it 24/7 or not makes no difference with a NAS drive. A NAS drive's firmware is designed to erase the data on the failed sector and have it replaced with a new sector immediately, while a normal drive will move that data to a recoverable sector.
