Would it be worthwhile setting up an external RAID 1 storage solution to back up my shit? Do any /g/entoomen use RAID 1 at all outside of an IT/work setting?

Yes if you don't already have a dedicated backup solution
>Do any /g/entoomen use RAID 1 at all outside of an IT/work setting?
RAID is usually not worth while outside of an enterprise setting because of the drives needed, unless you just have some spare drives lying around like you
I use RAID 1. Though I'm a hoarder and have a lot more stuff than you probably have. There's a few reasons to use it - two is the minimum number of drives needed to get redundancy (this is why you'll see a lot of servers with RAID 1 boot drives), it's simple and fast to implement, and (my situation) if you're using ZFS its the easiest way to make an array that's easy to expand later. ZFS has the irritating limitation that vdevs are immutable and can't be changed or removed once added. If you make those vdevs mirrors, then you can add disks, or replace disks to expand storage, two at a time, instead of three or more at a time.
Anyway you might as well use your old disks for backups, if you've nothing else to do with them. Can't hurt, might help.
RAID isn't a backup, but if you're a hobbyist with more data than you can afford to keep proper backups of, it'll do. You don't get anything offsite, so you're vulnerable to shit like lightning and fires, but you get protection from drive death, bit rot, and some history if you use snapshots.

why the fuck isn't x265 the standard yet?

I'd like a better picture, but I can't justify buying a new smartphone or a camera
The optical isn't connected at the moment, turns out I am short SATA cables
>Every other website has an "app" that just opens up website and people actually install these things rather than just using their web browser
And it's easier to collect private data in app, rather than in browser.
X.com [bought by Elon Musk a few days ago] outputs 'x' normally, but when you change the link, it outputs "y", any thoughts?
>no interactive firewall software for linux
why are linux programmers so shit? even pajeets can write things like that for windows and mac
Scratched my Apple Watch on a wall corner. Its really annoying, how do I fit it ??
Would anyone consider forking this?
>PLEASE DISABLE YOUR AD BLOCK
Why do they do this? It is my right to block your stupid ads.
Also how to bypass without disabling it?
I mean they make their money off of the ads and while it is your right to block the ads it's also their right to block their content for people that prevent them from making money
How sustainable is a computing ecosystem where every desktop application is now written as a node.js webapp wrapped in a web browser, and you now need 8GB of memory minimum just to have a good time running 3 applications at the same time?
C and all languages like it are quickly being cast aside as "arcane magic".
Will we see a revival in the importance of software optimization in the coming decades, when software becomes so goddamn slow that they run more slowly NOW than they did 20 years ago?
if the hypothetical applications can run in an optimized, shared context, kinda like browser tabs AND they make use of wasm for expensive computations then it's very sustainable
and it will happen sooner than later
btw I can run vscode (electron), streamlink-twitch-gui (nw.js) and a dev build of my game (electron) on 4 gigs of ram and I have plenty left for shit like a browser, video player and terminal emulators
they don't give half a shit about the user's computing resources, they assume they're abundant and are content to waste them. Dev time though, that costs them money.
I guarantee you they'll be resistant to changing the current dynamic because of this. They'll want people to accept it as the status quo, it saves them money.
Russuian gov....putin Is trying to limit VPN usage and implement WEB-blacklist.
How We can help them?
Start Tor Bridge?
If ru-gov will win once other govs may try too...
Technically VPN usage won't be limited yet, since a lot of companies use it for it's intended purpose. Current ban implies ban on third-party VPN services, which is not a big deal since you can always set up your own VPN server in yurop.
Also there's not much an outsider can do. "Tor bridges" is Mr. Robot-tier activism because it doesn't solve any actual issues with laws and government. If you have inherently malicious government after you, you're fucked. Tor can be made illegal, so no one will use it. As a matter of fact, there is already at least one russian in jail for hosting a tor node.
The problem is that Russians are fucking stupid and don't heavily oppose this kind of shit since goverment have been tightening the screws very slowly, with a lot of support from mainstream media heavily demonizing any opposition. There's so much propaganda on the TV, every censorship or anti-privacy law introduced since 2012 is actually being cheered upon.
Only thing the onlooker can do is learn and be more politically active to prevent the same situation in your country, don't repeat the same mistake many russians did years ago, because it's a give an inch / take a mile situation. "Being politically active" doesn't mean torching cars, though, it means educating other people and motivating them to stand for their rights. And don't meme on them because they don't use your favourite flavor of Linux, because then no one will take you seriously, and you will be in a minority. And if you're a minority, when the society and the goverment come after you, you won't be the leet hackerman in a hoodie, you'll just get squashed.

Thanks a ton to the guy helping me on the earlier thread. Really appreciate it.
I'm probably booking a new appointment soon as my current doctor is not taking me seriously and her ultimate solution is to "stop using the computer". I don't think she understands how much I need it for work and education.
I'm guessing using an ergonomic keyboard didn't help much.
Can you figure out what this file means?
I was thinking of building an old off the botnet internet PC just for kicks/nostalgia/retro gaming/video editing/etc.
So I was wondering what would some really useful old software that can be had for cheap? Not just any software but really useful stuff that even today works just fine for whatever you want to do.
My firs thought was The OS to use. I could dual boot 98SE and XP. I think XP might be the best assuming the PC has the hardware to run 95/98 software on it.
Some good software to run.
(before Automess took over)
Office XP (Not sure which distro though)
Pretty sure the CS2 version of adobe suite is technically free, but not sure if it was the best version for XP or 98
