Just got myself a free monitor.
Any good /g/?

"I have a low opinion of Gentoo GNU/Linux.
Gentoo is a GNU/Linux distribution, but its developers don't recognize this; they call it "Gentoo Linux". That means they are treating me and the GNU Project disresepectfully.
More importantly, Gentoo steers the user towards nonfree programs, which is why it is not one of our recognized free distros."
What if we banned generals so the catalog could be different than yesterday, or a week before, or a month before, or a year before?
what if we only post speccy screenshots in this thread?

Is this really possible? How would you do it?

So this isn't good?
So does anyone use onionshare?
What is your opinion on it?
Is it useful?
How is it compared to other file sharing methods?
Do you know any alternatives for anonymous file sharing?
Getting a new mechanical keyboard, for the majority of use being gaming. Want something reasonably silent so preferably with Cherry reds or silent red switches. Would get a scissor-switch but there are shit-all models with decent price/good layout. $130 budget tops
Prove me that a Corsair STRAFE Cherry MX Silent isn't the way to go
Also Keyboard Thread, show us your boards
It happened folks!
So typically when trying to speed up my PC I go for a walk down a few different roads. Fiddle with security and privacy setting to squeeze some more bandwidth and reduce my upload. Open up the installed programs and delete anything that has found its way into my installed directpry and the open up task manager and have a browse if startup manager is in check and look for any unfamiliar processes. If all of this fails to yeild me positive performance increases then i will usually reformat.
Now occasionally I see adds online (when add blocker doesn't do its damned job.) offering system optimisation. Now I'm a firm believer that anything esier comes at a cost but im generally curious as to if there is any decent non buggy, virusy horseshit programs that do all this nonsense for me.
Leave comments of the programs you recommend, possibly a link and a quick review or just give it to me straight if i'm dreaming
Consider a situation where your question was about making money. Would you believe that, if someone had a way to make millions overnight, they would share it with the public? Probably not.
Now look at your question. You've done reasonable things to keep your system running properly, but are considering clicking an advertisement somebody paid to have put up, offering the "easy trick".
In short, it's bullshit.
There isn't a single program that can do something that you can not.
That said, if you are looking for an "easy" way to stay on top of it, then there are relatively safe programs that can make life easier. That said, if it fucks something up, it immediately makes your life that much harder, as it can cause severe breakage in certain circumstances.
The only program I would trust on Windows is CCleaner. On Linux: Bleachbit.
That said, I really would recommend doing it yourself. Better to spend a couple of extra minutes once every 6 months or so than to cost yourself hours and hours trying to repair what breaks.
Whats tool(s) do you use to disable telemetry, cortana, look it down, etc.
I'm trying "O&O ShutUp10" at the moment, but I'm too lazy to test open ports or traffic going through.
Its a pretty good tool as far as i can tell, though.
After this look into that official way to "disable" telemetry which some faggots are shilling here. Then look into the IP addresses windows connects to passively, it's already been posted. Block those on your router.
Ok, so, this anon says this:
"__I had crossfire Asus ROG Strix 8GB RX480, and sold them together for $800. I decided to buy the EVGA FTW3 1080 Ti (on sale admittedly) for about $700__
__So essentially, I got paid $100 to get a 1080 Ti."__
And, I know he is not lying because iknow a lot of people with simmilar stories ranging from rx470 4gb up to rx580 8gb , but they all landed with gtx980ti,gtx1070,gtx1080 & ti for price of middle low end gpu.
My point is, even when AMD catches incredible lucky break, they literally have huge new market willing to pay up to 100%more( and they buy in bulk from 10gpus up to 500gpus at a time)their cheaper gpus , nvidia is one who is making the real money.
People who work in AMD are morons, there is no two way about it, if they cant profit from this point blank bulls eye shot,they really should bancrupt.
All they had to do was to release rx590crypto edition(slightly refined rx5##, or just optimised for mining on the hardware side,changes really dont have to be massive for miners to gobble them up,with clear indication that this gpu is for mining) with samsung vram,adequate drivers,dual bios,better heat resistors ,some 30% higher hashes and obviously up to 100% higher prices and shit would sell like hotcakes , they would get praised by miners and gamers. And then release Vega as really cheap gaming gtx1070 and they would break nvidia in 2 moves.
Maybe i dont see the big picture but if i can come up with this (and imnot really smart), wtf. Is their strategy dev. department comprised either from stupid people or from nVidia spies?!
Samsung had only one advantage to Apple.
They just lost it!

I tried real hard to find some data on the effect, speed, anything on "comp-lzo" but I could find nothing.
Only know that:
> it is automatic if enabled
> it results in the same amount of packets
So yeah, not much. Searched Google of course, but there was not much on the internet.
Basically... is it worth using? Does it actually speed up connection IF the data is compressible? (For example, web browsing. Does it help even though even my toilet paper uses HTTPS today?)
LZO is a compression algorithm designed for real-time applications, which puts an emphasis of speed over compression ratio. Its use in OpenVPN is not meant to speed up the tunnel connection, but to compensate a bit for the overhead of the VPN protocol and encryption scheme, given that it compresses each packet individually, which doesn't help too much even with compressible data like plain text, because proper compression algorithms can work with many megabytes of context.
If you read into the documentation, it's still safe to enable at all times, because it only adds one byte of overhead per packet in the worst case and is automatically turned off for a while if a sequence of packets turn out incompressible (--comp-noadapt option).
