Wtf systemd is garbage. Solution is pajeta making qubes with new init.
Fedora is pretty secure if you know how to use SELinux.
>>700 >making qubes with new init. Can you guys send me a step guide or manual? I seriously don't want to learn years of computer science just to make my laptop wear a metaphorical condom.
I tried to use Qubes and it didn't fly so good. You have to already be a VM networking pro at your day job to get Qubes Whonix to actually work right, I think. I kept leaking my real IP so I gave up. Also Qubes requires a fairly modern, nice cpu (needs tons of virt. features) so you can't just run it on any old laptop. I wanted to like Qubes but it's not ready for """""regular linux users""""""" yet in my opinion. The new hot thing for medium-plebs is ~Wireguard~ since it's supposed to be less code so it's harder for glownigs to hide shit in. So I would look at the wireguard website and pick an appropriate distro if you're a noob guy. Maybe you computer prose can do stuff on Qubes, but I can't. I would probably Fedora 31 or Rawhide if you're feeling like Linus Man or Ubnutu 19.10 (Eoan Ermine) if you're not. Ubnutu kinda has shitty behavior regarding sending out network requests though...
Go home Google. Android is shit. Billion $ company cant even include a firewall.

Video Editor Recommendations Onideus 12/20/2019 (Fri) 10:17:51 No. 683 [Reply] [Last]
Wut is your favorite video editor? I captured a two and a half hour stream today and I started to edit it in Adobe AfterEffects 2015 and... that was a mistake. I threw the initial edit into the render queue and... oh yeah, it only saves in lossless formats, which was gonna result in like an 800 gigabyte file... NO THANKS! So then I started poking around in Google searches and all I'm getting is this corporate con crap, like "here's a free* editor" ...but then you download the shit and it's all gimpy and retarded unless you fork over your credit card. Like... tha'fuck?! Isn't there like a modern version of VirtualDub? I did find this one program, MKVToolNix and it's really handy for messing around with remuxing and editing tracks and such, but it doesn't really have much in the way of editing ability. Same with XMedia Recode, it's a nice little conversion program, much better than that sloppy TVC crap... but uh... I need a decent editor! It doesn't have to be super complex either, I mean I don't need gawd damn 3D rendering 'n shit, I just want to splice clips and do simple editing WITH COMPLEX SETTINGS! I don't want the fucker messing around with the resolution, or using some default codec settings... simple editing... complex encoding... preferably freeware... does such a mythical beast exist?! D:

>>683 Well, so far the "best" alternative I've found is just using regular Adobe Premiere instead of AfterEffects... neither of which is free though. Pleh.
kdenlive blender and ffmpeg these are tools I use. they have community addons you could use too
I work with Premiere Pro/After Effects, and I started out with Sony Vegas - maybe you could try that? >I threw the initial edit into the render queue and... oh yeah, it only saves in lossless formats, which was gonna result in like an 800 gigabyte file It can do that depending on the project settings, sometimes Premiere comes with another program called Media Encoder, which encodes it to a more compact file that's appropriate for uploading to YouTube, for example. Free programs like Handbrake do the same sort of thing.

my T40 thinkpad will no longer recognize USB devices, but only for booting. A while ago, one day it stopped being able to boot from my USB drives which it used to be able to use. What's worse, the CD drive is broken so I have no way of booting it from anything. Luckily it hasn't needed to, but I'm pretty sure it must be a hardware issue.

am I going to have to replace the motherboard soon?
What's the cheapest thinkpad that can support either
>1 monitor at 4k/60 or
>3 or 4 monitors at 1080/60?
Not counting the built in LCD panel.
I'm pretty sure a T460 can do 4K output. Check for yourself obviously.

Take the meme pill and preorder lmao system76 new line of laptops that come with coreboot.
I bought two t420 a while back figured the first one would last a while. Love this thing. Best laptop I ever owned. Such a travesty that they don't make them like this anymore. Would kill for a square monitor.

ActiveState used to build a nice Perl but the latest is missing packages that ppm needs to run. So I tried out their slick custom build tool. Not so slick: 4 days, only half done. inb4 Win: Gotta run engineering design software that only runs on Win. :-(
You can always use the cygwin version, or even build perl yourself from the upstream source. Then just use cpan for modules.
(11.00 KB 727x187 activePerlbuildFailed.PNG)
Well, after 5 days, it failed to make-install the PPM, so yeah, I guess I'll be taking advice above and installing Cygwin at some point. For now, and maybe indefinitely, I'll stick with Perl 5.18. ActiveState Perl was very nice while it lasted. Roughly a decade for me.
>>662 I remember some distro called strawberry perl or some shit like that. Maybe that still lives?
>>665 Apparently so: https://learn.perl.org/installing/windows.html There it is, right on perl.org, and it looks easy. Maybe it's killing ActivePerl.

This technology will grow back your foreskin.
4 posts omitted.
>>235 How do you grow back a foreskin? That's like having someone's face burned off and then grafting more onto it and being able to feel your face.
>>630 It's not an exact replacement, but it's as good as it get currently... The main function of the foreskin is the act as a gasket and as lubricant during copulation. By stretching the skin out, you restore these two functions. You also undo the keratinization caused by the exposure of the glans. So by restoring, you are undoing a lot of damage. Of course an all natural foreskin is better than this (mostly because it contains specialized nerve endings) but restoring is the best option for men who want to reclaim their sexual pleasure... it's not perfect, but it's a substitute until foregen is finished with their product.
