Is it worth using fake accounts to make use of free trials? Comrade 04/15/2020 (Wed) 17:21:49 No. 1140 [Reply] [Last]
Could I end up getting arrested if I kept making fake accounts using one of these 10min emails, to enjoy the free trial of ProtonVPN?

I'm sure they will figure it out based on your IP address\usage patterns and just ban you.
>>1191 let's see how long I last then
ahh, they don't allow accounts with 10 min email domains anymore...
>>1181 I really expected something more like this: https://youtu.be/uSdXjppGFoI?t=31
I use free trials for my job, use them in a VM that gets reset to some previous snapshot whenever the free period is over. I've had no problems so far, nobody has blocked my IP or whatever. Do you need to create a Protonmail account for ProtonVPN? How long does the free trial last? Might try this if I ever need a VPN.

PC build Anonymous Comrade 11/21/2019 (Thu) 22:06:26 No. 2265 [Reply] [Last]
Just building a semi-cheap PC to replace my old one I built 3 years ago, it's not really meant to be a brand new state-of-the-art computer but just one that's supposed to have the same power as my old one but that runs better. Also yes I'm using Intel because my past 4 computers have used Ryzen or AMD and milage has varied, intel is shit but at least it's shit that won't turn into a nuke like my AMD did(it was their very first 8-core) and also I'm trying to skimp on money so while expensive and probably not the best performance I at least know it won't require a fucking swimming pool for a cooling unit.

If you haven't built a new computer already I would suggest you should wait till 2022 or 2023, that's when DDR5 RAM & PCIE supported CPUs come out from Intel & AMD. Or get an ARM chip
>>2954 >ARM chip please don’t give advice if you don’t know what you’re talking about
>>2954 ARM chips are mainly used in low power devices, etc. almost impossible to buy a consumer computer with them
just make sure that after you finish building you take the whole thing apart and throw that shit in the fucking trash because videogames are for NEET degenerates
>>2955 >>2962 They are eventually going to arrive onto the desktop, especially considering the recent move made by Apple to ditch Intel in favour of making their own ARM based chip for Macs & others will follow. Actually theres a better idea: if the overheating CPU is the only problem with OP current computer just replace the stock CPU cooler with the best fan cooler out there, a Noctua NH-D15 CPU cooler which actually performs better than a AIO liquid cooler. Just pick the model that fits the AM4 socket & is tall enough to not block the RAM & pcie slots then keep all your pc parts including the case, the HAF 912 is a great PC case with very gppd airflow but you can also replace the stock HAF 912 fans with higher airflow & quiter fans.

Buttcoin Comrade 01/28/2020 (Tue) 00:15:14 No. 275 [Reply] [Last]
I know, you're asking yourself already, how the fuck are crypto's compatible with a leftwing communist image-board? Well, first of all, fuck you, we live under capitalism and as such must exchange and purchase under the current mode of production we find ourselves under. Second, I would like some one to help me understand, exactly, how to set up a bitcoin, monero, what have you; wallet. I tried to set this up on my laptop but syncing with the bitcoin network is a huge MASSIVE bitch and took me months and I never got fully synced. Also, it takes a shitload of resources to work properly on my computer. I can barley do anything else. So, my question is: What is the best way to get into bitcoin and use bitcoin and other cysto's like a boss? Am I doing something wrong? What are the best specs for btc and the like? As always, any help would be appreciated. Thank you /tech/!

>>3205 Smart contracts, mining is getting removed, many other better features. It's not perfect, but Bitcoin is merely a store of value, while Ethereum is a effectively a whole platform running most of the other successful crypto projects.

>>3161 How do you hold packages from installing certain files on apt or simply stopping them from upgrading? in pacman.conf you can have IgnorePkg, NoUpgrade and NoExtract. As for the differences, they do differ a lot: one has 2 commands with long args that do what other can do with just a short one; other takes commands when the other can do it only after making a change in the config file. Upgrading everything while leaving no cached packages behind is pacman -Syu && paccache -rk0 but in debian you have to use apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade && apt autoremove && apt autoclean. And no don't get me started on the difference between dpkg, apt, apt-get, synaptic and aptitude. This syntax shows clearly that the goal was not to have the pm being used from its CLI interface, rather they probably thought it as a library for clicky-click GUI wrappers that get installed alongside the DE. You could try partialy fixing it with shell aliases, i think that could do wonders but i can't figure out how you could fix the broken configuration. It took me like 15 minutes just to find out how to stop it from pulling 2GB of useless dependencies when installing xorg as there's no mention of it on debian wiki, but how about not interrupting the install just to ask me for what to do with the developer provided config file for a random package? Why is this the default behavior instad of simply keeping it in the cache just like the package itself so i can make that choice later? You can't use the command in a script if it does that. Pipeing yes? i don't think so. Adding user repositories? Another pain in the ass. In the end what pissed me the most was how it's supposed to be noob friendly just like the distro itself, but i always get headaches when something goes wrong with it. Anyway, pacman isn't the greatest- i didn't said that. That would be apk-tools but with this capabilty i was talking about which it doesn't have at all. I also can't say i couldn't live with apt only, but it would be inconvenient. https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Apt
>>3168 if you're asking about portage, its equivalent to that pacman thing is package masks.
>>3163 But you shoudln't always do what you want, and themes are just a mistake.
Linux Mint (just cos I felt like a change), but normally an OpenBSD.

This is a good thread with nice accessible and, amazingly to me at least, relatively simple to follow guides. I'm not a programmer, I just want to automate some of my job/hobbies, but I just love how cosy this place is for noobs like me reading this stuff. Thanks for making this shit comprehensible, I took one class once because I thought about doing Game Dev and I was confused to shit and no one would explain. They just expected you to sink or swim. The thick accents didn't help either.

systemd? xorg? Comrade 07/02/2020 (Thu) 19:06:07 No. 3056 [Reply] [Last]
I'm no certified Linuggs Eggspert, but I've just continuously heard about systemd and how bad it is over the years from all manner of /g/entoomen, but I still really don't understand it like at all. I essentially "just wanna grill for god's sake" when it comes to using my computer, so I try to stick in the realm of Linux things that just werk. So my question is what's so bad about these things in general I guess? Both for nixlets like myself, as well as for the experts and the whole of Linux? General discussion thread as well for these things.

>>3064 > doing one thing and doing it well t. system where every utility implements its own idiosyncratic way of handling command line arguments
>>3067 systemd is analogous to a well functioning ML One Party state, and is good
>>3056 >systemd Basically, Linux used to have a bunch of random programs made by random people that did random things that Linux users needed their computers to use. -need to synchronize network time? -need to get an IP address? -need to schedule a program to execute once a week? -need to write system logs somewhere? There are random programs written by random people to do all of that, and they were called by shell scripts that executed them in the original Linux init daemons. What systemd did is, it made a very excellent init daemon that used this trick with sockets that allowed it to start all services at once, making the computer boot really fast. If it had stopped at that, people would have loved it. But instead what it did, is, it started writing replacements for all of these random programs, and bundling them with systemd, and forcing you to use their own homebrewed replacements for all these random programs.

>>3079 > If you're planning to run Linux and spend a fair bit of money on a quality machine System76 do Linux dedicated laptops that are supposed to be pretty good and they come with Coreboot The Serval WS looks sick. It's basically just a portable desktop.
You have to tell us what you want out of a laptop. Does it have to be powerful, durable, affordable, large, portable, etc... Laptops are pretty shit these days though, because they are produced more as a fashion accessory than as a tool that needs to be handy and ergonomic.
My intent is to have mostly desk work so a good monitor and RAM is nice. I don't plant to game on it so a dedicated GPU isn't my concern. Budget is <550USD
>>3104 T, W, E or P series thinkpad Check out /tpg/ on 4chan for specifics, T440p is current reigning thiccboi, socketed upgradeable processor, cheap for the machine you get, good expansion options T470 should also be doable with your budget but that generally has a 2c/4t ultrabook processor which is fine irl but isn't as nice as a proper quad core If you don't want a thinkpad a new line of Ryzen mobile processors just came out that are meant to be very good, you could probably get an entry level machine with 4th gen ryzen for that kind of budget, or pick up a higher spec machine 2nd hand
