Ok, so I took the time to learn FreeBSD and OpenBSD. They seem like good OSes to run on a machine that performs very specific tasks very performantly, with uptime being crucial.
So... what thing of significance would I actually MAKE with either of these OSes now? I'm not an idea man. "Make a custom router, lol" and "build a NAS" have already been done a billion times.
Could /g/ please explain to me why DRM is being compiled into my kernel?
A PROGRAM DENIED HIS PURCHASE
Hey bros just got this for free. It has 4GB of RAM, just bought a 250GB SSD.
Where can I get 16GB of cheap RAM for this?
Make sure the RAM isn't soldered on first.
Most new mackbooks are non-upgradeable.
Also, RAM is expensive as fuck right now. Prices have doubled and nearly trippled since last December.
What does /g/ use for remote desktop access? Pic related, it's my current solution.
My little brother (15) has taken an interest at computer, aside from gaming. He wants to learn but I really don't know shit about this and don't really know where to get him started. I had hoped he would learn something in his robotic class this year but he got expelled for bad behavior and the new school has no such programs.
I thought of subscribing to an online course from Udemy, teaching how to make games ftom Unreal engine 4:
He would learn at the same time of having fun (instead of wasting hours on Minecraft).
What's your opinion about this class? Any other suggestion?
you're a good bro, bro. there are many YouTube tutorials on UE4. maybe have him watch some of them to see if he shows interest. also, there are other engines that are not as intimidating as UE4. the key will be to keep it interesting for him and see if it sparks his curiosity enough to stick with it. there are torrents to be found with courses on UE4, including development content, videos, and even a precompiled version of UE4. I have all of these. Don't discount engines like Unity, it is very capable. if he has a Steam account with some games, he can use Valve's Hammer Editor and edit maps from his own games, or download and edit other users maps and modify them.
keep being a good bro, bro.
holy fucking shit, thats worse than aliexpress links. pls go back

Well, that was bound to happen. Inno3D is the first manufacturer to warn cryptocurrency coin-miners that they are possible voiding the warranty on their cards. See, graphics cards are not design to do full load 24/7/365, and that is exactly what miners are doing.
We're pretty sure that the RMA return rates have gone up ever since the mining hype started. Inno3D is the first to issue a warning. Thing is though, if a card breaks down after all that abuse, how would Inno3D ever figure out that it was used for mining?
It brings up the question, what is the lifespan of a graphics card with normal usage? I had this discussion once with folks from Nvidia, and in their believe with pretty hefty daily gaming that would average out roughly at 5 years. At one point the GPU will start leaking. If you place that 5 years into perspective compared to what miner are doing with them, I dunno maybe the cards are bound to die after a year or less?

what did they mean by this ?
I was about to post something very informative but noticed you posted the gay nigger frog. This meme is very forced and is now recognized as a symbol of homosexuality by most. It's no better than furryposting now
Anyway I hope you have a horrible day and get throat cancer.
I wish you were dead frog in pic related.
Also homosexuality is a sin so enjoy burning in hell forever you sick fuck.
Sup with iridium?
Name ONE (1) reason i should use a private tracker.
So long story short I submitted an application to sys-admin/data center job with a "notable" yet not to be named government intelligence agency. I did it because why the fuck not and partly for shits and giggles because what the hell could go wrong?
It was all fun and games until "shits and giggles" called me just an hour ago. They want to setup an interview on monday and I'm fucked!
I'm having a panic attack here, I don't know jack shit about networking
What the fuck am I going to do? I'm having a full on panic attack here! I don't know jack shit about networking outside of the barebone basics and my computer knowledge is just hardware based like building your own PC A+ cert bullshit and basically the shit you pick up here on /g/. Their going to run me through a fucking security clearance and poly find out i'm a fraud (i put down my dad friends IT company as place I worked for to which he agreed to be my reference).
I'm going to be blacklisted probably and never be able to work even a private sector job let alone a .gov one if I drop the spaghetti on this.
How is she still the CEO of IBM?
How much longer will she last?
>How is she still the CEO of IBM?
No one is asking her to step down. Investors aren't upset with her decision to spin down IBM and focus on their few key areas.
>How much longer will she last?
She'll probably die at her desk.
