So I checked out one of the new Galaxy Folds at BB and I have to say, I fucking want one. Although when it is closed, it is definitely to small width wise, when it is open it really is like a mini tablet that you can fit in your pocket.

Get a portable foldable keyboard and boom, you have essentially a desktop experience you can put in your pocket.

OpenBSD Utterly BTFO
>We discovered a vulnerability in OpenSMTPD, OpenBSD's mail server. This vulnerability, an out-of-bounds read introduced in December 2015 (commit 80c6a60c, "when peer outputs a multi-line response ..."), is exploitable remotely and leads to the execution of arbitrary shell commands: either as root, after May 2018 (commit a8e22235, "switch smtpd to new grammar"); or as any non-root user, before May 2018.
>This vulnerability exists in OpenBSD’s mail server OpenSMTPD’s “smtp_mailaddr()” function, and affects OpenBSD version 6.6. This allows an attacker to execute arbitrary shell commands like “sleep 66” as root user.
>Exploitation of the vulnerability had some limitations in terms of local part length (max 64 characters is allowed) and characters to be escaped (“$”, “|”). Qualys researchers were able to overcome these limitations using a technique from the Morris Worm (one of the first computer worms distributed via the Internet, and the first to gain significant mainstream media attention) by executing the body of the mail as a shell script in Sendmail.

/hsg/ - Home Server General
/hsg/ thread!

NAS is how most people get into this. It’s nice have a /comfy/ home for all your data. Streaming your movies/shows around the house and to friends is good feels. Repurpose an old desktop, buy a SBC, or go with cheap used enterprise gear.

/hsg/ is about learning and expanding your horizons. Know all about NAS? Learn virtualization. Spun up some VMs? Learn about networking by standing up a pfsense box and configuring some vlans. Theres always more to learn and chances to grow. Think you’re godtier already? Setup openstack and report back.

>What software should I run?
Install Gentoo. Or whatever flavor of *nix is best for the job or most comfy for you. Jellyfin to replace Netflix, Nextcloud to replace googlel, Ampache to replace Spotify, the list goes on and on. Look at the awesome selfhosted list and ask.

>Datahoarding ok here?
YES - you are in good company. Shuck those easystores and flash IT mode on your H310. All datahoarding talk welcome.

>Do I need a rack and all that noisey enterprise gear?
No. An old laptop or rPi can be a server if you want. Though racks don't have to be noisy. Throw a couple of noctuas in there and its silent as a desktop. Otherwise you can rent a cheap VPS from different providers if you prefer to go the cloud route.

Tech leads to "stalking"

why is if a person creates a webpage titled with their name and where they live and who their friends are and what school they go to along with lots of photos .....

if someone dares to look at the page they published, it's "Stalking"

is that not like the equivalent of old tech if someone authored a book and had it published and put in a library that someone could call you a "stalker" for reading it?

It is becoming clear that Microsoft removes local users
Piece by piece, Microsoft removes everything that enables a local user to use a local computer. It is a long term plan. They think in long term and within 5 years people are no longer able to escape this.

As time goes on, it is becoming increasingly clear that Microsoft is trying to make local accounts a thing of the past and push all new Windows 10 users to a Microsoft account.

Always online PC

Since Windows 10 1903, Microsoft quietly changed the Windows Out-of-box Experience (OOBE) or setup experience so that many users are no longer able to create a local account during set up as they could previously. Recently, this change also expanded to international users in India and Germany.

For those affected, the only way to create a local account during setup is to disconnect the computer from the Internet. Yes, that's right, Microsoft now makes you disconnect the computer from the Internet to create a local account during setup!

If you don't want to disconnect your network, then you need to first set up Windows with a Microsoft Account and then when done with setup go into the Windows 10 'Family & other users' settings and create a local account.

Even that is a bit convoluted as you have to first start the process of creating a Microsoft account and finally on the second screen, be given the option that you wish to create a local account. Once a local account has been created, you can delete the original Microsoft account you created during setup.

/fwt/ - Friendly Windows Thread
Users of all levels are welcome to ask questions about Windows and share their experiences. Tell us about tools, utilities, configs, tips & tricks that make your life with Windows (more) bearable (or even pleasant).

Remember: notice the friendly - this is not Windows vs other OS thread

>Choosing, downloading, installing, activating windows/office & recommended software

>windows 7/8.1 telemetry neutralizing

>windows 7 ricing guide (nanami-tan fork)

Frequently Asked Questions:

>Which version should I download?
>How can I activate LTSC?
>What does it have?
>Where can I download LTSC 2019?
>What software do you recommend/should I install?
see fwt paste

>Do I really need to debloat it?
No. It already comes without the majority of preinstalled UWP apps.

>Can you get the ryzen scheduler on LTSC 2019?
No, and will never. Wait for LTSC 2022.

>Can I change to LTSC 2019 without reinstall?
If you are running LTSB. Otherwise, it must be a clean install, unless you do the hack in the paste.

>Can I change to Enterprise or Education without reinstall?
Yes, with a generic volume key of those versions. see fwt paste

>Is Windows 10 1909 OK?
Only the Education or Enterprise edition.

>I already use Windows 10 1909, can I debloat/debotnet it?
Yes, there are scripts for that on the Internet (like Optimize-Offline). As a first step, change edition to Education / Enterprise if it isn't one of those already.

>I already run Windows 7, but don't want to clean install?
The installers (except LTSC) can upgrade.

>How can I receive Windows 7 updates beyond 2019?

>Is Ameliorated/XP64 TPB/Gen2/SadeemPC/random windows homebrew safe?
It's a matter of trust, reputation, safety, how they exactly differ & pajeetness. Generally not recommended. Don't fall for XP64 shill.

Why is screen tech in laptops and monitor so far behind TVs and smartphones? A contrast ratio greater than 1000:1 and higher than 1080p is still considered a fucking luxury. They are still making new models with 1366x768 TN in 2020 including the new Thinkpads. Many many laptops can't even cover the sRGB color space when phones and TVs can cover the DCI-P3 color space completely.

I also have in my power a 2017 Macbook pro that I accepted as payment, i5 (non-touch bar, not quad core), 8gb of ram, 128Gb SSD.

I know the 2017 is newer but I am hesitant to change my older one because of the infamous keyboard problems and lesser ram.

Addressing the lies about Firefox
Firefox doesn't USE tons of or HOG ram.
It temporarily CLAIMS extra ram, but it happily lets go of it as other programs need it.

Countless times I have seen Firefox use x amount of ram for e.g. 6 tabs.
Then later I load other programs on the computer.
I also open more tabs in Firefox in addition to the original ones.
I later check Task Manager - Firefox with even more tabs, all still in memory, is apparently using less ram than it was before.
Was it actually USING less ram? Obviously not. It had simply temporarily CLAIMED extra ram than it needed at the outset, but quickly let go of it as the os demanded.
And it also wasn't HOGGING that ram - HOGGING means taking it and keeping it, not letting go. Firefox routinely lets go of extra ram it temporarily claims, so it can't be HOGGING it.

It doesn't USE all of the ram attributed to it, nor does it HOG ram. It merely temporarily CLAIMS extra ram which it happily frees up when required to.

I just ran another test.
Firefox open. 31 tabs (mostly /g/). ~1330 mb ram claimed in Task Manager. All tabs checked to definitely be in memory.
Then I opened my dedicated cooming browser. Had fuck tons of porn tabs open. Cycled through them all, all still in memory.
Then I went back to Firefox, cycled through all those tabs, all still in memory.
Looked at Task Manager again - ~870 mb ram attributed to Firefox.
Went to both browsers again, cycled through all tabs in each again, just to make sure. Looked at Task Manager again. Yep, still the same ram stats.
So Firefox clearly CLAIMED ~460 mb extra ram. But it was not USING that ram nor did it HOG that ram, as it readily freed that ram up.

The lies about Firefox, this organized sustained campaign scaring people into thinking Firefox is a ram hogging monster (which Chrome is), or a >tranny browser, are spread by Trumpist Zionist Neocon Jews from /pol/. Don’t believe their lies.

cerberus x
Is there any point to having a vent on the right side of the case, behind the motherboard? I'm ordering a Cerberus X and they have it as an option. There's no M.2 on the back of my board or anything like that, and I feel like the clearance is going to be so small that it won't matter, but I instinctively want to get it because 'hurr more vents = good'.

I have a 78TB RAID array that is getting heavily fragmented. It consist of 3 folders. 1st one takes up about 70% of the space, 2nd one around 25% and the last one 5%.
Is there a defregger program that allows me to place those folders in order? I would like the first folder to be at the beginning of the drive and have 100GB of overhead. 2nd folder would only need like 30TB and last folder 50TB of overhead. Current defrag programs do weird shit and arrange by access date.

Open source - how does it work from a dev/project management perspective?
I'm confused as to where the planning/high level roadmap chats happen because all you see in the issues section typically is reactionary bug fix stuff and feature requests from users not like a "here's what we want to do this year" plan similar to what a manager at work might tell you

Or are you just not supposed to know that if you're not an insider on the project so you just try to commit bug fixes until you're in the circle so to speak?

Does anyone use SalesForce?
I volunteer at a small nonprofit and asked the guy that runs the place if he needed any help with their IT stuff. They use salesforce to keep track of client data and I saw an opportunity to eliminate some manual data entry by automating report generation. Essentially I just need to export some data into a specific CSV format and upload to the file to some government server via SFTP.

Reading through SF's documentation, it just seems so...tiresome. I don't really want to learn some oddball versions of java & sql. The whole thing seems to be designed to lock someone into the salesforce platform, as the stuff you make isn't readily transferable to other domains.

I'm happy to help the organization because I want to help them save money and time, but for the life of me, why would anyone want to be a 'salesforce developer?'

manjaro vs ubuntu
I'm torn. For the past several months I've been enjoying Manjaro, but coming back to Ubuntu just feels right... Despite GNOME being almost objectively worse than KDE, it still somehow feels better to me once it's fully riced. With Manjaro, it felt like neverending customization, for better and worse. With Ubuntu, it took 5 minutes to get my computer up and running and I'm off to the races. What should be my long-term choice, /g/?

Programming is a viable option for these reasons.
1) It's largely over blown the extent to which companies use Indian programmers (they aren't very good)
2) If you are not working much currently you can get on the internet & learn all you need to know.
3) A lot of people start but can't pick it up hence the market is not saturated. If you have a brain & are determined you will beat 70% of the people that start learning.
4) You can get work world wide through the internet.
5) You don't need formal qualifications just need to demonstrate your abilities by showcasing your coding skills on Git Hub or live projects.
6) It's not going away any time soon you just need the ability & willingness to keep up with developments.

ReadyBoot: Systemd Replacement.
Welcome to the ReadyBoot thread. ReadyBoot is a new systemd replacement, and it's free/open source libre software under the GNU GPL v3 or later. Due to people visiting the repo but failing to contribute issues or pull requests I temporarily privatised our GitHub repo. But contributors are welcome and should apply to join us here. For those who are unwilling to contribute, the GitHub repo will be made public again in under a month.

We are also proud to announce our new logo! Thank you @TheReverend403 from GitHub/Reddit for contributing this beautiful work.

Design decisions made so far:

- Services are described in TOML format files, which are loaded into our Service Object Database (SODB), an object-oriented database powered by SQLite. Service files' hash is taken and stored when they are imported, and a dir-watch and hash-check are used to reimport them when they change

- PID 1, readybootd, is in charge of running Subsystems. Subsystems correspond to a particular service and have groups of Subresources, which are abstract resources such as processes, files, or mountpoints.

- The program readybootctl is in charge of telling readybootd what to do, and readybootctl is in charge of parsing our service files. It communicates with readybootd over gRPC via Unix Domain Socket.

- For socket activation, readybootd asks another subdaemon readyinetd to handle this by making gRPC calls. readyinetd is a subsystem and its controlled services are subservers.

- For file, device, and mountpoint subsystems, readybootd asks another subdaemon (readyfiled) to handle these by gRPC calls. gfiled is called the File and Devices Subsystem and instead of providing Subservers it provides Subresources.

If you have an idea or want to contribute code, reply here. Let's destroy systemd together, /g/! With our efforts combined, Poetteirng doesn't stand a chance!
