Bros, do not fall for the booming tech market meme. There are no such jobs. It is all lies. It is an employer market, and they only hire indian slaves.

If you want to code for a living, just unlearn some English, tan your skin and move to India.

Terry's OS had zero security protections. Watching videos of him apparently "BTFOing MIT Niggers" Looking at the comments makes me want to gouge my eyes out at the circlejerk for Terry and how much of a genius and he was for implementing it that way. He explains his OS is lightning fast because everything is ring zero, which means he has no permission checks, and all user programs can read all other programs data. It's like saying "LOL look how fast I can get into and out of my house because I don't have to worry about locking and unlocking my doors and windows. Lockfags BTFO!" He also has no file permissions which anyone could read any file. I believe Terry is very intelligent and was a very good programmer but I believe he knew that his OS was a security nightmare which resulted in him not adding networking to his OS. Thoughts? discuss

If there seems to be a bug (or complicated issue), anons may ask you to compose an MWE (minimum working example).
To create an MWE, try the following:
1) start emacs with "emacs -q". This disables your init.
2) try to reproduce your issue with as few settings changed and packages (manually) loaded as possible.
These steps ensure that other anons can replicate your problem if it's something more involved. Sometimes you even find the cause yourself this way, too!

READ THE WIKI! & help by contributing:
>NAS Case Guide. Feel free to add to it:
/hsg/ is about learning and expanding your horizons. Know all about NAS? Learn virtualisation. Spun up some VMs? Learn about networking by standing up a OPNsense/PFsense box and configuring some VLANs. There's always more to learn and chances to grow. Think you’re god-tier already? Setup OpenStack and report back.

>What software should I run?
Install Gentoo. Or whatever flavour of *nix is best for the job or most comfy for you. Jellyfin/Plex to replace Netflix, Nextcloud to replace Googlel, ampache/Navidrome to replace spotify, the list goes on. Look at the awesome self-hosted list and ask.

>Why should I have a home server?
/hsg/ is about learning and expanding your horizons. De-botnet your life. Learn something new. Serving applications to yourself, your family, and your frens feels good.

Does anyone else hate that Linux is becoming more mainstream? I feel that mainstream adoption is actively making Linux worse. I think flatpaks are subverting the whole model of package managers and why they were so much better than windows or Mac, but we keep pushing them so we can get some proprietary buy in so that the normies can have there convenience. I feel that the choice is slowly becoming choose a meme distro were you have to do everything yourself and not get anything done or pick a glorified android distro that will slowly become worthless without some corporate overload maintaining it.

Since Linus swallowed the CoC, the Linux kernel has been steadily growing in size
It is now OVER TWICE THE SIZE since Linus sucked in the CoC
>Linux-5.17.7 159.6 MiB
What the actual fuck?
It used to be 69Mb
See for yourself
Is there any hope we will ever have a lean lightweight kernel again?

This image is only 30kb in JPEG XL.
I dare you to post this as a JPEG on 4chan that looks as good at a similar size, proving that what we already have is good enough.

I see no excuse for not at least implementing experimental support on a tech-savvy board like this.

serious question.

I want to use a javascript library fullpage.js for a website I'm making, its literally the only solution to make the pages slide to next page nicely, but the spanish jew who made it is charging a shocking $36 for a license key and bragging about making 15k a month from this piracy.

how can i get fullpage.js for free or a license key or a cracked version to use on my website and if i do, what are the legal consequences if im caught?

Foodproof mechanical keyboard
I need to find a mechanical keyboard that is 100% food proof (preferably TKL). I've gone through 2 keyboards in the last 9-ish months alone and the keys on my current one are now starting to get stuck in the down position. As you can tell this shit is starting to get expensive. Any suggestions?

How do you ask for a raise/promotion when you reach the 1-year mark at your company? Mine doesn’t do “annual salary reviews” because they prefer to do it ad hoc whenever they feel the employee deserve it. That sounds like bullshit to me, so if I stay 12 months here and I don’t see a raise and a stock option refresh I want to personally ask my manager about it. My plan is to gather all the achievements during the year, highlighting the most important ones so he has an easy way to convince him and the the higher ups I should get a raise.

Also, it the raise is less than a 10% and there are no stock option refreshers I’ll probably start interviewing to check my market value.

Using mac in front of the class mates. Teacher says "Okay students, now open a window and tile it on the side". Start furiously away at mission control to to get my window setup. Errors out the ass. Everyone else has already started their classwork. I start to sweat. Start a desktop2 with another redundant window. "Ummm... what the fuck is THAT anon?" a girl next to me asks. I tell her its MacOS and can do everything that linux does and ITS COSTS MONEY! "Ok class, now maximize that window!" The teacher says. I fucking break down and cry and run out of the class. I get beat up in the parking lot after school.

What tech can you see in your dreams?
Ive heard that people cant see many things in their dreams like phones, cars or computer screens.

Like I can see cars in my dream but can't see my phone. On that note I can sorta see tv or monitors if they have a game playing but it's like my entire vision becomes the monitor.

/fwt/ - Friendly Windows Thread
Users of all levels are welcome.
Share Windows tools, utilities, tips & tricks that enhance your life.
Reminder: Notice the friendly - please be civil.

Note: This general is sometimes hijacked, fake troll threads link to anti-windows rantings or shill random software, report and ignore.
Use the feedback form:

>Installation for retards:

>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.
>How do I activate?
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 and Windows unactivating)

>>Which version should I get?
Comes preinstalled with bloatware apps like games, music, news, weather, etc.
Comes with system apps.
Comes with nothing, no apps, not even MS Store
Search LTSC-Add-MicrosoftStore if you need it.
There are no compatibility differences between versions, all programs/drivers will work on all versions of Windows.

LTSC meant for corporate PCs with 5 years security updates (KMS only).
IoT LTSC meant for retail/medical/etc PCs with 10 years security updates (HWID only).

>Do I even need 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.

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

>B-b-b-but muh Windows 7!
OpenShell or StartIsBack

>Are homebrew ISOs safe (Gen2/Ameliorated)?
