Guys what is the best twm in your opinion? I am using i3, but am trying awsome now
I've used both i3 and awesome. I like i3 more, but I think thats because I tested awesome and didn't really get the point. But now that I do more work involving multiple windows I tried i3 and it works really well. Maybe I'll go back and try awesome again

And the question arises, why SHOULDN'T I use linux??
Linux has nonproprietary filesystems so data recovery and filesystem repair is easier.
f2fs is fast as fuck as a root directory.
Systemd boot allows you to boot to login from cold in under 6 seconds.
I have no more reasons to use it.
New captcha where you mine monero for few seconds instead of selecting images
Can we get hiro to implement this?
What are you working on, /g/?

why the fuck does Amazon not have next day shipping options on every item?
they just lost business to Jewegg because they had multiple next day shipping options
this was not thru a 3rd party seller
also they'll do stupid shit like not list next day options until you already ordered, then edit the order and edit shipping and SOMETIMES a 1 day ship option will be there
but this item was only 2nd day...which actually wouldnt be here until monday which is 5 days from now, newegg is gonna have my shit here on friday and was actually cheaper, only 20 dollars
Guys, what's happening?
Because the company leader is a pajeet
anyone wanna help me with my DC Circuit homework?
So recently I’ve got enough money from working to actually start building my first computer and since it’s only my first build and I don’t have endless money I wanted to see if there was a cheaper product that would essentially the same as the one I already planned on buying. I have done a lot of research and my build list is;
Case: nzxt s340 elite
PSU: evga 500w bronze
RAM: 8g of ddr4 (2 sticks)
CPU: Intel 7700k
GPU: 1080ti ( not sure if I would need a blower style card if I have an ATX build)
CPU Cooler: nzxt kraken X62
OS: windows 10 (64-bit)
Any better parts for the value and let’s start a builds thread, post pic of setup and specs.
>The internet still does not function upon hash addressable content
I was going to go with Protonmail, but seeing as it's a cucked SJW memepot I'm still looking. The best option seems to be Kolab Now — open source, secure, offers a full import service, etc.
It's not dirt cheap but I think you get what you pay for.
Just to be sure, I checked their Twitter feed and found zero mentions of Trump or any politics, which is excellent. They seem to be focused exclusively on open source and security, which is what I want of people I pay to host my email service.
Can anyone give me a good reason not to go with Kolab Now?
Daily reminder, if you don't know and use Forth you're a brainlet.
Im getting depressive again with all this shitposting and 0 actual content.
Thid board has a feature made specially for it and no one uses it because none of you can program, not even in tetrix, most post are politically motivated and responses to and low bait, the only ones that post creative content are the screentech threads, they actually take the time to make a fucking screenshot of their own terminal instead of downloading images from google, frog posters are cancer to, none of them takes the time to draw their own pepe and most pepes are unrecoverable, you can even count their pixels i tried to safe so many pepes but its impossible, they are eternally lost in the spacepixel paradigm.
The big appending on this board was a fucking Apple convention, its fucking depresive that most users only post that trash without even disscusing the fact that those emojjis dont have a fucking frog!!! How can this site miss somthing that obvius NO ONE NOTICED!!!
everyone focused on the white male raitio and bulshit like that but the most iconic meme this site offers and repost thousand times a day... nope no one noticed. So i arrived the conclusion that this place is run by google, the only reason it exist is to fill those damit captchas, its so fucking obvius, you may ask me why not legacy captcha and i will respond you with a fuck off nigger i run what i want on my computer okay, if i like my desktop riced up with lolis tis my matter not yours you nupol+ idiot. I like my thick i3 gaps very VERY thinkLike big butts and I can not lie YouOther brothers can't deny That When a girl walks in with an itty bitty waist And A round thing in your face You Get sprung Wanna Pull up tough Cuz ou notice that butt was stuffed Deep In the jeans she's wearing I'm Hooked and I can't stop staring Oh Baby, I wanna get with ya And Take your picture My Homeboys tried to warn me But That butt you got Make Me so horney Ooh Rump, of smooth

How is such a wildly inconsistent DE considered acceptable?
I have to give a 5-minute talk in front of a room of strangers about anything having to do with technology. The only prerequisite is that it has to be at least marginally interesting.
Any suggestions? What's /g/ interested in?
