what experience do you have with setting up/using a vps? I just set up a free ubuntu server via amazon web services and am attempting to set up an irc server for my friends to chat on.
What are the best vps services? What other cool things can you do with these?
I went AWS → DigitalOcean → Vultr over ~5 years or so?
AWS free instance is nice, but otherwise AWS is terribly overpriced unless you need other Amazon services to integrate with.
DigitalOcean has relatively good services and I didn't have any problems with DO at all.
I eventually moved to Vultr because Vultr allows custom ISOs and has more ram for the same price as DO. Don't trust Vultr's cheapest instances though, because they're always "sold out", but you won't know that until you'll try to spin up one.
Also, both DO and Vultr provide on-site backups that you CAN'T download, those are literally useless, don't pay for those, set up your own backups.
Why don't you use KDE?
I do and mine actually looks good.
Hey guys i am looking for hacking tutorials!
I installed Debian about a year ago for my main desktop OS, and I have grown fucking sick of this System D shit constantly ruining everything. I want something new and better.
What's the current distro /g/ is memeing about?

Is there any hardware tests I can do to determine which one is busted?
Really don't want to risk buying a useless motherboard if it's the CPU.
PSU is most likely .
Even if the cpu or gpu overheat they shouldn't catastrophically fail together at the same time . Second would be the motherboard . What kind of PSU do you have
I tested the PSU with another computer and it worked and booted fine. I bought it not even a year ago, so I don't it's already bad.
PSU in question - CoolerMaster V550
I had a processor that would cause the entire computer to BSOD whenever I would watch videos on either browser or VLC. It would play video games and other programs fine though. If the motherboard looks fine and the integrated graphics don't work I would try swapping the cpu.
Poor Hungarian people...
BKK (Centre for Budapest Transport) ordered a website where peoples are able to buy ticket online and they can skip queue at office.
"White hackers" (simple users who never saw code yet) has found some vulnerabilities in this site. (Plain text password, buying ticket without pay etc.) They reported that to BKK and BKK said this was lawless and our system was safe. "only clever users are able to use smart devices" so they think Hungarian people are moron, nowadays normal people never would find issues in system.
It's finally over.
What are you working on, /g/?

Why would you risk Windows nuking your drive(s) or crashing your only machine?
my windows 7 doesn't even know Linux exists. seperate hard drives and linux controls grub. i can explore windows drive and folders from linux but not vice versa. dual booting from same drive can fuck your shit up, esp if you run windows 10 i hear there's lots of problems with windows 10 being a territorial cunt
Meh. I have Windows 10 and Arch on the same SSD in my laptop. Never had an issue. UEFI made it a lot easier. Windows has it's own boot manager that the systemd boot manager chainloads if I want Windows.
Are flowcharts a meme? I've only recently started to get into programming, but I took an intro course a while back that stressed how important flowcharts are. It seemed like a whole lot of bullshit to me. Opinions?
They're actually good to present ideas or complete tasks to teams of programmers, also keeping yourself on toe that you won't forget functions and have to implement them later on in more complex programs.
For a shitty 4pages code to simplify stupid tasks, flow charts are indeed unnecessary.

Here is the puzzle.

As you can see the other side of the cooler got only 4 screws and I tightened them in order, made sure they are tight... not sure why the cooling is fucked.
Before this it was spewing lava. Now it's lukewarm (i.e.: no contact, barely any? I don't know..)
