How do you get people to understand that their privacy is important? I have friends with "smart homes." The fridge is connected to the internet. The dishwasher is connected to the internet. The thermostat is connected to the internet. The fucking sink is connected to the internet. They see nothing wrong with this and call me a schizo when I read the privacy policy to them. How can anyone have such little respect for their privacy?

niggerlicious internet policies
Screenshot 2022-08-12 004213
in Egypt we got this bullshit called "fair usage internet", whatever the fuck that means, where internet ISPs provide subscriptions with ridicolously low qoutas. after your quota is done, your bandwidth becomes limited to 256Kbps, you read that right, 256Kbps, and they expect you to buy more quota.
they do not feel like offering larger quota for current subscriptions and they absolutely do not want to abolish this bullshit.
seriously? who tf is sad enough to come up with this crap? also why 256Kbps? are they like punishing me for using those 250GBs that they were apparently to generous to grant?
what do I do? I don't want to pay those thugs cash for more quota, and can't gtfo of this country bec too broke.

/hpg/ — Headphones general
How to request:
>Open or closed
>Over-ear or on-ear
>Intended use / Favorite music
>Other requirements

>Do I need an amplifier?
Yes. A line-level output is not appropriate for headphones. The amplifier built in to your phone, PC, Playstation controller, or whatever will work for most normal headphones. For less normal headphones, whether you need a dedicated headphone amp depends on sensitivity (most important) and impedance (less important):
low impedance, high sensitivity -> No
low impedance, low sensitivity -> Yes
high impedance, high sensitivity -> Yes, but this config is still somewhat decent without an amp
high impedance, low sensitivity -> YES, you will need a thick and beefy amp for this one
>Do I need a DAC?
Yes, if you want to listen to digital media. Most dedicated DACs in 2022 are more than competent; spending anything more than $100 on a dedicated DAC will not measurably affect the signal quality. Higher-priced DACs may offer a different appearance, different input/output connections, and so on. Look for DACs that support high resolution ( >44.1
Khz) and bit depth (>16 bit)

>Good reviewers?
They all suck in their own way, take all of their takes with a grain of salt.

Ipgrade graphix card now or wait for more powerful ones?
So guys and guys, do I wait for next gen more powerful GPUs, or buy current gen now? I want to upgrade from 1060, want to play games at 1440p 144, currently only doable at 720p res with low settings. Ideally i'd like to have 6800XT-esque level performance, but not pay 930-1100$ for it (it's the price in my country). So I was hoping next gen will bring that same performance at 70 tier level prices, so maybe closer to 600-700$ range.

Also I don't run any open source apps in my PC.

I made a CRT simulation shader.

It has capacitance simulation, row return artifact, mask AA, noise and more

most aspects are customisable like, CRT dot size, mask to dot space ratio, noise strength, gamma, capacitence stength, capa iteration, etc

some important effects are in pixel space, not UV space, making it easier to scale.

Any kind of integration to open source software like emulators, FX shader packs etc.. is very appreciated.

here is the photo of the shader in working.

And sorry, i am a shitty drawfag and not even a coder

Why aren't zoomers interested in electrical engineering? You'd think that with their total inability to function without computers, they would have more of an interest in what makes them work at a fundamental level. But they seem completely indifferent to it all. What happens if/when China invades Taiwan and they're no longer able to buy off the shelf computers and phones anymore? They will need EE knowledge to build, repair, and maintain computers. There will most likely also be huge demand for EE jobs in the coming decades as supply chains start coming back to the west.

- Websites/Frontends
- Mobile/Desktop Apps
- Charts/Plots/Art

- They rock at their job.
- They are both popular/loved and have a very dedicated community.
- They both solve problems of earlier languages plus they are actually being used.
- You can intertwine those two. (WASM, tauri, both can be used for frontend/backend, etc.)

Is Karlie Kloss actually a good programmer? Besides her being a model, what makes her qualified to teach programming? Has anybody actually seen something she has coded herself? It says on her Wikipedia that she has been programming since 2015, so she has to have at least 1 sizeable project, right?

How do I become an absolute beast at this language? I’ve done personal projects, built programs used by many people, used it at work, etc.

I still feel like a scriptard even though I use classes, objects, inheritance, polymorphism, and shit like that.

I wanna go fucking DEEP. Like wizard level “omfg he’s a fucking python freak” deep. How does one achieve this? Or is it futile because python is just a high level framework, so going deep is lame?

Hey /g/

Just a warning for you guys, if you are into creating efficient setups with software such as i3 etc DO NOT DO IT AT WORK

I recently got a job as a frontend dev straight out of university. I have spent some time (not too much) configuring the machine I was given to be most efficient possible.

I've got Arch setup with I3 gaps, polybar and riced out my terminal (oh my zsh)

Well apparently my manager didn't appreciate this. I tried explaining that in the long run it would save time by being more efficient, but they were having none of it.

I was brought in and now I am on my final warning already. My manager has told me to just use stock Ubuntu if I was to use Linux.

I feel like this is completely unfair as I am used to a more power user style setup, and while not an expert I am not exactly a n00b either.

So just a warning to all you /g/uys, don't try and be productive at work. Fuck this job.

Hey lads,

I've just started with my first unraid server and have a few questions if there is anyone knowledgeable.

1. I have a paid VPN anyone know how to funnel 100% of the web traffic to and from the server through the VPN. As far plex knows I'm located in Bulgaria (a non DMCA compliant territory) and that's the way I want to keep it.

2. Running 4 disks in JBOD setup with no parity protection (Migrated from an old synology) whats the process of adding a parity disk after the establishment of an array and a share.

3. I fucked up split level set up (I set up level 1 and that tried to write everything to one disk) I understand that to correct that I'll need to set up multiple shares for each different media type and set a split level appropriate for each. can one of you give me an example on how to set up split levelling so that for example Each Season of a tv show stays together but different seasons can be broken up among drives.

4. One of the features I'll miss from the old Synology is the ability to set a power schedule as I have no intention of remotely accessing the server while I'm not home and I therefore leaving it on 100% of the time is a waste of electricity.
My searching suggests that a power down schedule can be scripted I'm wondering if its possible to write a script that will invoke the mover every day at midnight then when the mover is complete stop the array and shutdown the server?

Any other advice you lads can give a noob would be cool.

Some of you received your new macbooks, here's what you need to know:

The basic selling strategy is summed up with a mnemonic device: Approach, Probe, Present, Listen, End (APPLE). When customers have concerns, the prescribed response in the manual is the "Three Fs:" Feel, Felt, and Found technique. Every Genius must attend a two-week recruit training that mandates programs as diverse as “Using Diagnostic Services” and “The Power of Empathy.” Geniuses also have a list of words that the manual clearly stipulates as banned; words such as "bomb", "crash" and "hang" must be substituted by "does not respond" or "unexpectedly quits". The manual also teaches employees to read emotional cues such as drumming on a table or placing a palm on the back of the neck that might mean a customer is bored or frustrated, respectively. Employees who are not in the Genius role don't receive this manual or go through this training.

>job hunting as a early career engineer

>network companies:105k-165k, company hounds me and schedules a fucking 3rd round even though I was apathetic, arrogant and didn't give a shit during the other interviews beacuse I'll refuse the job even if offered cuz networking looks boring

Why is it like this? Network engineering is the civil engineering of EEs.. They don't deserve higher pay.. Back in the day I was able to pass the mid level VMware nsx after just two weeks of studying starting from not even knowing anything about OSI layers or even basic tcp protocols. Yall barely deserve minimum wage let alone gaping all the real engineers. So fire up ur config manager for 2 minuets and call it a day like u usually do faggot.

Convince me to go through with my 3rd round in networking instead of waiting for the space comapnies to get back to me.. Convince me it's not boring.. I could really use the money but I loved my last jobs and don't want to be a wagie that's stuck doing something they hate. Does it involve complex math or something? Convince me it's not just hard memorization like medicine..

/fwt/ - Friendly Windows Thread
Shamiko Edition

Users of all levels are welcome.
Share Windows tools, utilities, tips & tricks.

>How do I activate Windows?
HWID mimics OEM activation to generate a permanent legitimate license.
(Does not work on VL editions, avoid VL editions unless you enjoy having to deal with KMS breaking)

>>Which version should I install?
Comes preinstalled with bloatware apps like games, music, news, weather, etc.
Comes with basic system apps.
Comes with Win32 system apps, no MS Store, no feature updates, security updates only.
If you need MS Store, run this in cmd: wsreset -i
There are no compatibility differences between different Windows versions.

LTSC (VL) gets 5 years support (KMS only).
IoT LTSC gets 10 years support (HWID only).

>Do I even need IoT LTSC?
W10 Home/Pro/Edu/WS/Ent editions are all EoL in 10/2025 (2027 for LTSC) whereas IoT LTSC will be supported until 2032.

>How do I activate Office?
Installs a tiny KMS server emulator on your PC for activation. Not ideal as KMS trips AV sometimes and deactivates, but it's the only choice for Office. Alternatively, just use MS Office online through your browser since it's completley free. As a last resort, you can try Open/Libre Office and set it to save as Office file formats only.

>Where can I get the ISOs?
>Where do I get Office?
>Can I change edition post-install?
Read the paste:
>Is Optimize-Offline worth it?
>Should I debloat?
Only if you understand everything that you're going to be intentionally breaking.
If something doesn't work later, you probably broke it with some debloat memescript.

>Installation for retards:

>Is Windows 11 good?
>Should I upgrade?
Not yet.
