My mom's laptop completely shitted itself and cant even take in windows recovery cds without doing a BSOD loop after. So im gonna see if i can install linux mint on it. I dont know anything about linux but it shouldnt be too hard. If this doesnt work though idk, maybe the harddrive is corrupted or something, then what do i do...

>pic related
your thoughts?

The hard drive might have bad sectors, but corrupted data isn't a concern. You're going to wipe it all anyway. You're not going to recover anything into Linux.

And if the HDD is really fubar then you'll order a 60-120GB SSD online, pop it in for her and she can enjoy a faster computer.

Also maybe instead of wiping and going to Linux, you can try wiping and doing a fresh install of Windows. She'll probably appreciate that.

something happened :^)

don't be surprised if you can't access the drive even after installing linux. linux didn't like my windows drives and keep doing weird things like having them disappear or not be accessible
>>
>>61297829
That's not a "Windows drive" problem. Either you didn't properly format the drive before installing Linux or it was a physically defective drive which Windows had been covering for by knowing to ignore the fucked up parts. A healthy drive would not look any different than a bare drive off of a warehouse shelf otherwise, though.

>>61297687
it wasn't ur truck just now that started running, the police pulled up and cut your power

better start smashing your drives
>>
In order of decreasing probability:
1. You sat on the remote you fat fuck
2. A child / dog / woman was playing with the remote and pressed the start button
3. One in a gorillion change the EM interference from a lightning strike had the exact signal your remote sends to start the truck

Power being out is irrelevant, you dumb cunt, because YOUR TRUCK HAS A BATTERY
>>
>>61297758
1. Didn't sit on it not fat
2. No one fucked with it

Idk if power being out is irrelevant

Truck started running right after the power went out

>Android Box
Looking to get a android box <$100. Where do I begin learning what's good and what's not? 2gb ram minimum? Can I or should I root and install a rom on the android box like a phone or they don't work like that? Can I run both Kodi and plex for my home network?

Any input appreciated

You don't need special hardware to install Android.

It runs most apps. Enjoy.
>>
>>61297612
> 2gb ram minimum?

Most definitely. Even without all that bloatfaggotry that goes on with OEM roms, android itself is quite bloated so 2GB is essentially minimum for it to not be shit.
>>
>>61297612
android is for faggots, get a box you can flash with openelec and be free of faggotry

>Google Home Breaks Up Domestic Dispute By Calling the Police

>We’re gradually learning that smart home devices can be quite valuable for police. Following a recent case in which Amazon handed over data from its Echo device to police investigating a murder, a Google Home called the police when a couple was allegedly involved in a violent domestic dispute.

>According to ABC News, officers were called to a home outside Albuquerque, New Mexico this week when a Google Home called 911 and the operator heard a confrontation in the background. Police say that Eduardo Barros was house-sitting at the residence with his girlfriend and their daughter. Barros allegedly pulled a gun on his girlfriend when they got into an argument and asked her: “Did you call the sheriffs?” Google Home apparently heard “call the sheriffs,” and proceeded to call the sheriffs.

>A SWAT team arrived at the home and after negotiating for hours, they were able to take Barros into custody. Police tell ABC News that the man’s girlfriend was injured but did not need to visit a hospital. The couple’s daughter was safe and unharmed.

So with Ethereum and plenty of people getting into mining, would a bitcoin situation be expected soon? I.E where the supply side gets overloaded and it becomes to expensive for anyone but people with serious money to create a mining operation?

I'm seriously hoping that Eth crashes soon because the GPU market is shit now

C gets a lot of things wrong, but braces are better than indentation for blocks.

Javascript gets a lot of things wrong, but prototypes are better than classes.

Python is slow. It became popular for data processing because it was a meme language at the right time and then NumPy was written. However, NumPy could have been written for many other languages.

Python isn't a bad language, but it is more popular than it deserves to be.

So I have my TV set up right on top of my monitor and ive been wanting to upgrade my current speakers to some nice bookshelf speakers... but i was wondering if i shouldn't just go with a sound bar. this was i could just use it for both my pc and my TV. i never really see any PC set ups with sound bars. are book shelf speakers better? or do soundbars not work well with pcs?

pic related is my current set up. ignore the sub, its now on the floor now. same speakers though.

FTW2 is a pretty good card, you should get some decent overclocking potential too. They switched the company they bought their components from this time so there are no more exploding vrms
