how do you guys remind yourselves to update your system regularly? My memory is awful and I can go months without updating until one ultra specific package randomly breaks and I can't avoid it.
Really I wouldn't care about system upgrades being so fucking huge if my internet speed didn't suck ass, but this takes at least an hour to download.

thank you that is all.
cool. let everyone reduce ourselves to your level. you know televisions go out when they lose signal? absolute fool. what will you look at when you stand and wave your phone around for signal?

what do you do with your secondary not-so-good PC?
do you use it as a second screen? do you turn it into a server or mediacenter? do you give it away or try to sell it ?
I reused my old x4 640 and repurposed it as a Plex server. I lost the side case and it's loud as fuck though and warms the room.
I just installed teamviewer on it to manage it. Old 6670 in there because it bitches about booting up without a GPU.
Old cases are the fucking worst for cable management though
Been trying to sell the guts from mine. No one's biting because it's old as shit (/g/ built it in 2008) and I reused the case and HDD.
Even if it were a whole system it wouldn't be worth the electricity to run it.
I want to ascend to linux but love C# for Unity.
What can I do /g/ang?

Whatever happened to side panel fans
I hate the modern bloated web. I want to start a very simple site. Having made the basic layout, can I host this tiny 5KB HTML somewhere free just to kick things off?
I think Dropbox stopped people from doing that some time ago. Every other site I try wants me to use their shitty template editors.
tell me again how AMD is still in business
I'm trying to start up my own PC side-business repairing older business class machines I bought on ebay, and selling them locally. It wouldn't pay all my bills, but on top of working it's a nice chunk of cash. Every time I watch a video by this guy I'm blown away by the shit he knows how to do that I've never even heard of.
I'm A+ certified and know my way around a soldering iron. That's about the extent of my skillset. Where the hell would I go, besides college, to learn the kind of shit that he pulls off on his webseries?
he literally has a video explaining what to do
Simple question /g/, can someone answer this please.
Why don't we have chargers for phones that can charge the phone at the native voltage of the battery instead of stepping up or down to 5v? A phone battery is typically 4.3 or 4.2v lithium cells, just like the lithium cells in power Banks, yet because we're forced to step up to 5v we're losing almost a quarter of that energy due to conversion inefficiencies.
Doesn't matter because for lithium batteries you need to dynamically regulate votage anyway.
The thing I am infuriated by is only AC in homes. Why? Can't we standarise on additional 24V? Regulating DC is much less fauly prone than using those AC to DC "adapters". And more power efficiant. Most of my LED screwed lights seem to fail because of a power supply fault. If DC was commonplace, we wouldn't need most power supplies, just a chip and maybe 2 additional capacitors on either side. LED lights might even work without regulating, if enough of them were to be put in series in one light.
Should I get my old man one of those amazon echoes or dots for his birthday? I'm not trying to spend too much desu

theoretically speaking, what could be alternative, future hi-tech ways of inhaling tobacco flavour and nicotine from REAL tobacco without burning it?
when i say theoretically i'm saying that the device doesn't have to be currently manufactureable or profitable in any way, just possible in theory
unleash your fantasy and knowledge /g/
>alternative, future hi-tech ways
This sounds like you just want me to invent cybermagic.
Look, chemistry can already do this. Take real tobacco and use solvent extraction to pull out the flavor compounds and the nicotine. Then you can aerosolize them or do whatever else you'd like as a delivery system.
It doesn't matter since you'll still have a damaged lung.
