>Want to encrypt my entire laptop.
>Among the main 500 GB drive on the "select which partition to encrypt" list are several other partitions that are various mbs. 150 mbs, 50 mbs, 200 mbs, 43 mbs, etc.
>About five different ones.

If I encrypt the main one but leave the others unencrypted, is it a security risk? Do any of those partitions contain my hard drive encryption password?

If I encrypt the smaller partitions too, what happens? Will anything stop working?

What are the smaller partitions?

I recommend using dm-crypt with LUKS. Archwiki has a good guide on encrypting your whole system (all partitions expect /boot)
Too complicated. Not GUI-based. Knowing it's Linux/open source, many parts of it are likely to be broken or incompatible, assuming anyone learns the esoteric coding language/command prompt crap to use it.
It's the best encrypting option out there for full partitions, but whatever. It really is quite simple to use

yes uwu
macOS is the best personal use OS which happens to run best on Apple hardware (X220's are great too). So yes. For work purposes everyone needs something different, but purely for personal, I wouldn't use anything else.


1. Is barely a clinical liar
2. Gave FULL OWNERSHIP to the entire extension to the first shady teen who picked it up ON APRIL'S FOOLS out of the blue, with NO previous discussion or announcement
3. Accepts no pull requests, making it impossible for other people to even fix the hundreds of bugs reported on a weekly basis
4. Accepts no feature requests, making the extension be out of touch with the actual needs of the users
5. Insists all the time that this is a "hobby project" to him, which means he gives zero fucks about the actual security and performance of the extension
6. Due to all the above, he may delete everything or give it all to another random jerk tomorrow or just about any day, as soon as he throws a tantrum again
7. Refuses to admit any mistakes and has a messiah complex - he thinks he knows more about everything than any other single human alive, so it's impossible to try teaching anything new or discussing with him
8. Sits around scratching his balls watching Youtube while pretending to be too busy

ignore this shill thread
So where do we go now that ublock origin kicked the can? Couldn't we just fork it and make ublock origin++?

I've been using arch for about 7 years now
Is it really worth switching to gentoo?
I haven't looked much into it but is updating as simple as one line with pacman? Also is there a comparable amount of software as like with arch? Is it as bleeding edge as arch too?

Hey /g/ I just started taking CS this week at college. I'm really struggling with the math and we're using DrRacket in my CS class.

I guess what I want to ask is if CS is worth the time and energy - or should I bother doing something else?

/r/ing CS students/majors for input

is the mediocrity of FOSS vs Paid Software an example of why communism would never work?
12 posts and 5 images submitted.
no, FOSS and communism aren't remotely the same. Also a mediocre society can still be a functional society.
I believe so

capitalism ho

No. Communism fails because it can't avoid the economic calculation problem. FOSS is still based on market principles, as people come together to create a product to satisfy demand. They often make some money from donations ("pay what you want") and/or service agreements. Not to mention, many bigger OSS companies mooch off corporate donations. However, those corporations are actually investing in better technology at a lower R&D cost, and they're garnering brownie points in the community.

>Economic calculation problem
>The economic calculation problem is a criticism of using economic planning as a substitute for market-based allocation of the factors of production. It was first proposed by Ludwig von Mises in his 1920 article "Economic Calculation in the Socialist Commonwealth" and later expanded upon by Friedrich Hayek.[1][2] In his first article, Mises describes the nature of the price system under capitalism and describes how individual subjective values are translated into the objective information necessary for rational allocation of resources in society.

No clue, if you move west Colorado has several cities with municipal fiber. Or if you don't mind Tennessee, Chattanooga has muni gigabit.

I have decided to purchase pic related, found it new on ebay for ~$30, vs most other new namebrand models being well over $100 - I had recently gotten some cd's and wanted to be able to listen to them without the computer - my old shitty memorex cd player sounded like ass (i assume it has a shitty dac or something), so I was hoping to find a Sony but they're just too damn expensive new and most of these things are pretty worn these days used - has anyone else recently gotten such a thing? Can anyone vouch for Philips bass boostey vs sony Digital Megabass? I never owned anything besides Sony in the past, save for the shit memorex

The only widely available namebrand not nuts priced player is another Philips, everything else is ugly shit chinese crap that surely sounds like trash and the control layout on them all look the same and horrible - I did find a pretty white Toshiba player on amzJP, comments lauded it's useful bookmark features for audio books

idk about this thread post good cd players i guess thanks

op contributing a bit more, found this thing, apparently waterproof, looks like a damn original xbox accessory
this one is fking slot load; $300-$800 ive seen'

seems monumentally wasteful to spend so much on such an ancient single use thing, it is pretty dandy though i saw some vids

no its not... i dug my discman, ex-hg walkman and tcd d7 dat out of storage when i was at my parents last to cash in on this nostalgia - ie sell

had to have a decent play though and media and batteries dont last long and are a huge pain...and sound quality is so shit... modern smartphones crush them... and i was talking flat without my favourite eq curves we magicly have now.. i was dissapointed and i didnt even spend money
