People who think using linux is communism are fucking retards.

Just because all open source developers are communists doesn't mean that using open source products is communism.

So all non-profit organizations like schools, churches, and all kinds of other stuff is communism? Opinion discarded. GNU/Linux is closer to national socialism, because my distro is better than yours and I contribute to it with the community.

Does anyone here wish they could get rid of their PC, monitors, keyboards, mice, etc (physically throw them away) and just use their phone, tv, and tv + game console? I honestly feel like all this programming and PC shit is bringing me down. I have 4 monitors, been programming for 5 years. I'm ready to give it all up

>i brought my macbook in 2012 and it works just fine
What does "works just fine" means?My 2001 pentium 4 xp pc "works just fine" a.k.a. it can browse internet play video.Shit commodore 64 in my dad closet is probably "works just fine" and does commodore 64 shit.The fact that your <2000$ chinese toy didn't break down after few years of being lightly use as typewriter does not mean the entire brand is a pinical of rubustnes.

analog tv signal is affected by electromagnetic interferience mostly caused by high power appliances and exerting excess load onto lithium ion batteries does shorten their life span.

so basically you're a moron or in grade school, most likely both.

i just encrypted my android device and when i turned it on it requested the password but for some reasons in polish language but thats not the point i gave the correct password and everything seemed fine again just as it was but now every time i want to just unlock the screen it requires the password i gave for encrypting the device and now my old 4 digit password

i thought that password will only be required when i turn my phone on to decrypt it like it says in the fucking description

is there a way to use a shorter password for the lock screen and keep the long bullet-proof password for decrypting the phone?

it specifically fucking say "EACH TIME YOU TURN IT ON"

When did Firefox change from being a fast efficient browser to a lagging piece of shit? 28.0 with the same sort of addons was fast.

We are starting a hub for anons who have an interest in VR. All text is a WIP.

>But VR is a dumb gimmick and-
This thread isn't for you. Go shitpost somewhere else. If you're genuinely curious about VR, keep reading to learn more, and post if you have questions.

>What is VR? Why should I care?
Virtual reality seeks to fool your perceptual systems into believing that you're in a different world. It's been a sci-fi meme for decades that once was even attempted and failed, but consumer technology has advanced to the point where it's now possible.

>semi-non-serious compilation of footage demonstrating current VR
https://vimeo.com/222520924

>I don't believe the hype. Isn't VR just a gimmick?
The only way to really understand VR is to experience it. If you're skeptical, try a live demo and make up your own mind.

I need your expertise /g/, I came home and found my PC won't power on after a lightning storm. It along with my 2 screens were all on a surge protector, and everything else seems fine. I am getting 120v through the wall and from the power strip, but how can I tell if the PSU is fried. What pins should I be probing with my multimeter?

>not your tech support board.

fuck it I'll help anyway. so just to be clear, you don't get any lights or turning fans from the pc at all? also, not to be a dick, but your psu is switched ON, right my boi? (check and check again)
>>
Move it to a different outlet and if you have a spare power cord swap it out. Also try holding the power button for a few seconds to get rid of any built up power.
>>
not to be a dum-dum but did you check the fuse?

i mean i'm in the uk, our plugs have fuses, i don't know if yours do too.

Is mozilla thunderbird the best multi-OS email client? I've been messing around with it for the past few days. Seems to work well and is pretty sleek. My boss is still using Windows Live Mail 2012. I want to get him away from it. What does /g/ think?

Posted a thread about this yesterday I think. It pretty much is if you want to stay FOSS.

I use it only because I can't be arsed to figure out how OpenBSD's mail works or to install OpenBSD.
It's alright, though I'd prefer using Seamonkey if I didn't have a problem with everything else to do with Seamonkey.
>>
>>61237253
I must have missed it. I'm gonna have to call my boss's ISP to get his email set up on thunderbird. He has a business account and if you get one setting wrong, nothing will fucking work.
