If my non-gaming laptop overheats everytime I try to game, should I buy a cooling pad or buy better fans? is the cooling pad just a temporary fix or is it actually a solution to hot laptops?
>>1323 Depends. However, laptops are built with compactness in mind and heat transfer is limited by everything being crammed tightly together. A better fan can help and a cooling pad certainly drains off the heat that builds up on the outside, but there's only so much they can do.
>>1324 Aight, if it's so hot it hurts a bit to touch (not frying your hand like a hot stove, but just uncomfortably hot) is it a good moment to stop playan? it's so fucking weird, my computer ran most games like shit, never heated up, my laptop DOES run them, and here's what happens.
>>1326 Usually discomfort means your body doesn't want any more of what it's getting. But yeah, much like with people working (processing) harder means more heat is being generated. Of course more modern processors are more efficient and the amount of produced heat hasn't followed the near-exponential growth of processing power, but combining less ventilation with more power... A cooling pad, as said, might help. But honestly I fear it would only slow down the buildup of heat. More time for you, sure, but just an extension. How much? I don't know, but something. I'm not an expert. Try turning down the settings in the games, in case you haven't done so yet. Less work means less heat.

Secure audio communication Comrade 03/24/2020 (Tue) 21:37:35 No. 615 [Reply] [Last]
Tech nerds will not comprise the entirety of the revolution. We know this. It's going to include a lot of normies, who can't exactly communicate and coordinate everything through text messaging. As we also know, we live in a world of mass surveillance. We have to give normies options for communicating that can protect themselves from the corporate surveillance state. This thread is for evaluating those options. I am currently looking at phone conferencing options and can't make up my mind on these: -some Matrix protocol tool -some XMPP protocol tool -Jitsi -Jami What I really want is something supporting phone call-ins, for stupid old people who cannot into computers. Phone OS support may also be important. Some options are more suited to these things than others. Maybe even better ones than I've listed. Discuss, please.

>>1278 Is this cause for alarm?
>>1281 Not really, it wasn't some giant security breach or anything. It's to do with a reduction in possible bugs around this major release, a lot of people are probably awaiting shilling this release just like I am to people using other software and they want the first impression to be good (previous Skype, Discord, Signal users).
>>741 If the Wienerlauncher is so knowledgeable, why is he using YouTube instead of PeerTube or Mediagoblin?
>>1283 He could upload to both of course, but probably because he wants people to actually hear what he's saying. Social coercion sucks.

>>1139 I agree, it looks hideous
Here's a go project that was fun working on, while I had the time: https://github.com/xatasan/kagami The idea was to have a universal backend for various Image- and Textboard engines, but I never finished it :k
If only they added generics to go. No inheritance or whatever though. I would be able to make result monads and handling errors would be so much less messy than it currently is.

Wobbly: an app for 21st century workers’ power. Comrade 04/16/2020 (Thu) 16:01:23 No. 1177 [Reply] [Last]
Wobbly is a workplace organising platform, being designed and prototyped by a small voluntary team of developers. It’s a communication and coordination tool, with structures and processes modelled on the IWW’s organising style (hence the name, coming from the IWW nickname). We’re creating a space for energetic, powerful, and democratic unions to win struggles, grow. https://notesfrombelow.org/article/an-introduction-to-wobbly https://github.com/Wobbly-App

Sadly it does not seem to be a very active project. Maybe Bunkerchan could set things into motion. A good first step would be to get wobbly-mobile a proper license.
Interesting. Crosspost to /leftypol/?

>>310 Im somewhat upseti but the repair isnt that difficult. I missed two parts for my grade which I did make but did not document. Shouldnt take more than a week to fix my thesis and pass, maybe 3 weeks if im going to be really fancy and thorough. After that i should hopefully be completely done. I was hoping to finish my education today though. Feels bad when you do all that work and then fail you. Im so fucking tired.
>>311 Any news on how we can help?
Is this related to googlechan? Why did you make the database thread on /leftypol/ instead of here?
>>886 No. I didn't make this thread. It was on leftypol to inform the users mainly. .t rat

Why the fuck did lynxchan abandon their json api? Will bunkerchan ever get a json based API so it can be connected from apps and other places?
