Do you use custom firmware on your router?
If so, what for?
debating on whether I should flash dd-wrt on mine.
So custom its not custom.
What does /g/ think of zeronet and if its shit are there better alternatives of decentralized websites specifically imageboards
Why aren't you using the best OS, /g/?
>inb4 ubuntu and w10 weenies scared of the command line
There really is no good valid reason not to use the best OS.
I know it's a worthless piece of shit that only a retarded toddler would use but my god it's so pretty it makes it hard to resist temptation.
I mean, just look at it.
I could justify $1000 on a laptop if I'm gonna keep it for a long time and the build quality is amazing.
Macbooks offer neither longevity nor build quality, the screen literally delaminates shortly after your applecare warranty expires.

How does that make you feel ?
I'm a new gentoo user here. I want to ask if it's possible to point emerge to a temporary make.conf, build a binary package, put it on a flashdrive and use it on a different computer? I have a powerful rig that seems to compile stuff in a snap, and my shitty laptop that takes hours to compile even the smallest things. I want to be able to make binaries for it on my desktop and just copy them over. as far as I know, I should be able to just use the make.config from my laptop and copy it over to the desktop and use that to make some binaries to send to the laptop, right? I know distcc is a thing, but I've read that I'll have to reinstall gentoo to enable that in my system, which I'd rather not do. What's the best way to approach this?
Monitor master race!
What kind of monitor do you have? Post pic ir possible and discuss about what is better, aspect ratio vs amount of pixels vs refresh rate
21:9, 16:9 144+hz vs 4k
You have one post to prove you are not a pajeet
Why is Source Mage so unpopular on /g/ ? Is this place full of normies or are there any OG's left
Why do you insist on shilling this shit so hard?
I have half a mind to think that you're actually anti Source Mage and know full well that doing what you have been will make us all hate it.

What is unironically the best way to store your passwords? I currently write them down on a notebook but it's too inconvenient and I'm thinking about dedicating an old phone (disconnected from the net) for that purpose.
i've got a couple of friends using `pass` that seem to like it. I don't know enough about it to know how secure it is. they mentioned something about the files being retrieval from the FS, this could probably be mitigated with a yubikey or some sort of ephemeral storage.
I was going to try it out--I liked the concept and the main contributor's website is 1337 as fuck
But is it really free? what is the catch?
Will it be good or it will be your average shitty AV trying to get you buy a subscription?
hey /g/ i'd like to start with my first linux distribution, what do you recommend? can u recommend books to understand how the distribution works too? i'm a beginner
Just go with Ubuntu, large community and fairly easy to use which is good for a noob. and don't switch to anything else until you know how linux works and the differences between each distro. People are going to meme you and say "Install Gentoo" and shit like that, /g/ is a meme board so don't expect too many serious replies.
I don't have any book recommendations, but youtube videos on how to install / use Ubuntu are plentiful.
I'm a hobbyist programmer. I wrote a small piece of game code (about 300 lines, 2 files, 1 class, 2 functions), and a friend of mine, who is a professional software developer, pulled it from my github.
He handed it back to me two days later, and it is now like 20 files, 10 classes, 500 lines of code, everything is created dynamically, and main function that has like 4 lines in it.
What sorcery is this?
This thread is dedicated to people that must use windows. Yes, you shouldn't use windows but some people more or less are forced for many reasons (such as familiarity with editing software, etc).
If you are one of the unlucky dumb people like me and can't migrate to Linux, you have two options: 1) Windows 7, 2) Windows 8/8.1
both versions can be found for 15~20 dollars on chinese/japanese sellers online with authentic (OEM)key
>What is the difference?
Windows 7 is considered the ''best'' however Windows 8/8.1 is slightly faster and you can disable telemetry and updates just like you would do in Windows 7 .....so basically other than some bundled games lacking on W8 these versions are identical.
Bonus: you can mount iso by default on W8.
>What about windows 10?
you should never run windows 10. Telemetry and data collecting can't be disabled ever. As long as you connect to the internet you'll be sending data to Microsoft.
>b-but there is a powershell comand...
No. You can't. There are more than 146 data collecting bundled in windows 10 and it's impossible to stop it.
>So only dumb people like you should use windows 7/8/8.1?
No. If you want to play older games on free trial(piratebay) or DRM-Free most likely it won't run on Mac/Linux/BSD so the best alternative is to simply buy a machine for windows 7/8/8.1 or dual-boot
>But Linux Mint and Ubuntu are easy
Yes and also they are data collecting just like Windows 10, specially Mint which leaked the data of thousands of users and allowed a corrupted/malware iso to be hosted on their website because lack of security
Ubuntu improved since 14.04 by removing adware/spyware but still you can't be sure they won't do this again in the future.
>what about Antivirus?
contrary to popular /g/ myth antivirus software is essential on Windows and you can't rely on windows firewall either. This lead us to the ONLY solution: Internet Security(paid). There is simply no alternative.
