What was the first computer software you bought with your money? Gaymes and pre-installed Windows don't count.

Whats the deal with /g/ just hating iPhones because they're the superior tech? there's nothing wrong with not being able to afford a good phone, aslong as you've got a roof over your head and food on your table there's nothing to be mad about.
What's frustrating is that you see how Apple deliberately leaves things out for the next generation devices
for example that freesync knockoff 120hz display from the iPad Pro, you don't get that shit on the iPhone X
3GBs of RAM, just because otherwise the thing wouldn't be obsolete fast enough

What do you guys keep on your everyday carry USB? I'll start:
>Network traffic monitor
>Deleted files recoverer
Don't be so rude. I care OP
I don't have a decent sized USB yet, but I plan on getting a 128GB one for
>multiple distro installers (arch-anywhere, debian, Gentoo, Windows 7/10)
>super grub2 disk
>LFS distro that runs in RAM and proxies all networking through Tor/i2p
>encrypted 16GB partition
>Tons of software like MS Office/Libre Office
what is Jony thinking?

So I've got TOR and zero interest in illegal pornography or darknet markets.
Please help me cure boredom.
Go http://google.com and type in "naked girl"
they have exposed beasts on there :O
I'M SERIOUS! :O :P :P
Maybe they were just ironically releasing it?
>using torrent software
also you forgot that the only way to play downloaded videos on the iphone without third party chink malware-tier apps is to convert them in itunes in a specific mp4 format.Enjoy rencoding your entird movie library for this shitty device while android has been supporting mkv for ages through FOSS apps
hi guys, i need a particular advice, not asking for tech support this could be interesting
bought pic related from amazon, around 10€, usb3 hub, works well. but they didn't include a 5v power adapter and used an obscure small port for it so basically you need to buy it from them and it costs another 10€.
i'd like to use multiple peripherals on a hub but i'm not going to pay for this scam
opened it, ripped the power port and soldered an old 5V nokia charger on the pins. the problem is: there are 3 pins for the power port and i don't think one is for ground, i guessed the polarity and got it right (there's a led that lights up and there's power coming out of the ports, it powers a led lamp), but once connected to the computer the hub is recognized only if the new 5V adapter is disconnected.
so i guessed "maybe it's in overvoltage if both cables are connected" and i desoldered the positive from the usb cable but at that point (of course) there was power coming from the adapter but no connection with the pc.
anyone wants to guess what's the problem? right now i resoldered the positive and the hub is working flawless, i'm just not using the power adapter.
I'm a total noob at coding (I actually started just a few hours ago), and I'm trying some python exercises.
I am asked to
>Compare a variable “user_guess” to a variable “hidden_answer,” and tell the user whether the guess is too low, too high, or exactly right.
Just for fun, I even tried to make the program keep asking the user for a number until he gets it right.
Pic related is what I came up with, and it works, but how can I avoid repeating like a nigger the input for the user_guess variable after each conditional?
Is there a more elegant way to do this?
Think about how the interpreter moves through each sequence of instructions in your program. If you set user_guess to something like 0, and prompted for user guess just after your while loop, what would happen?
>prompted for user guess just after your while loop
Yeah, I didn't see that while I was thinking about it the first time, now I see it.
Pic related works the same.
Show me everything you've got installed in this moment.
Mechanical Engineering undergrad here.
In cryptocurrency mining using graphics cards or ASIC's, or even just in server rooms, waste heat seems to be a large untapped resource that could be used to reduce the power consumption of the components.
Using a small thermoelectric device, the temperature differential could be used to drive a voltage which could be used to produce a small amount of energy which the component could use, to even say reduce the power consumption by 1-5%, which for a 150W graphics card could turn into a substantial saving. Especially when the manufacture of the small thermoelectric device is fairly cheap (£5ish), whereas a new graphics card (say rx 580) is £200-300.
Do you guys think this idea could form a decent dissertation paper?
Install gentoo wiki is currently down so i'm asking it here
so /g/, i want to pick a linux distro but i don't know why people shit on systemd
explain what's wrong with it?

How can batteries charge faster than they expend energy? doesn't that break the first law of thermodynamics?
