Installed a SSD and 16gb of ram today in my prebuilt gaming rig, first time I've ever worked on my own computers and it makes me feel proud of myself :D I'm gonna swap cases next week and install a RTX 2060 when they arrive in the mail
Nice, but why didn't you just build your own from the ground up? It would of been much cheaper, or was it a pre-built you've had for a while?

BTCsub token Anonymous 05/28/2020 (Thu) 17:57:26 No. 954 [Reply] [Last]
Does anyone know about BTCsub token ? is it a scam or a real deal?
4 posts omitted.
(109.38 KB 702x509 postitNOOOOOOW.png)
I personally don't think it's a scam or a pure pyramid scheme. They are implementing WorkLock-controlled referral plan in order to distribute their tokens economically as they want to avoid paying hefty amounts to FANG corporations and enriching them farther. So referral-based WorkLock smart contract is not their primary business model. They are also implementing a proof-of-asset subprotocol to display cryptoassets under management transparently in realtime. So I can't say it's scam as the 3x14 matrix gets terminated irreversibly at 14th level. You can't grow your network of referrals any farther. Plus their total supply of tokens hardcapped. They can't arbitrarily mint new BTCsub tokens either.
Amazing ! I also came across this and was thinking about investing! This really sheds more light! Seems legit to me!
This is certainly a good investment opportunity as well as a means to expand the capital. Just had small initial query indeed, whether only depositing 1 ETH is the only pre-requisite to enter the investment plan to receive more ETH in return as we refer and get more people on the platform or is there more to it?
I have spoken to BTCsub team on their telegram handle. They will be pushing conversion and data oracles contracts next month to their github repo. But they refused to give me a specific date.
>>954 Neither, it's just noise. And your post is spam.

Red-pill me (and I'm sure others) on Quantum computing. Lets not get left behind in a new computing age.
>>707 It’s a completely meme. Not useful for anything outside of some very niche scientific applications.
>>708 yet
It's just multi-state computing, like using a trinary or larger base. Currently our computers work with little pseudo-switches that are either on or off, 0 or 1. Using multi-state switches you can exponentially increase computing power BUT... it just means a faster computer. It's not like it's going to magically turn into some kind of AI singularity due to inherent mathematical limitations, namely the "curse of dimensionality". Also keep in mind our computers, even quantum computers, currently use a flow of electrons... which means they use mono-dimensional energy. It's possible though to use other energy forms, even biochemical energy forms as well as modulated energy forms, like light wavelengths in order to create photonic processors. And then of course, if you want to go full science fiction you could theoretically create a quantum temporal processor using tachyons. Where a calculation could be performed and then the results of the calculation could be sent back in time by a few nanoseconds. So basically the computer would know the results of a calculation before it even performed it. And the further back in time the weirder it would get. For example if information could be sent back in time by a few seconds it would be possible to create a computer that would know what you want before you even knew you wanted it. Essentially an interface-less computer. The interface would be there, but you wouldn't actually need to use it.

Arch, Gentoo, anything not Ubuntu. Really it's mostly user preference, if you're new to Linux I would recommend Arch over Gentoo. But that's about all. "Secure" is vague, securing your system is mostly up to you and not being stupid. Just avoid shit like Windows or Mac OS which have more security holes than a block of Swiss cheese fucked by a pack of starving sex crazed Nambian children.

how do i post on 4chan wilst using tor? Anonymous 10/18/2019 (Fri) 10:23:54 No. 387 [Reply] [Last]
Hey 16chan, this board seems to have attracted a lot of dark netters like me. I am also a complete fucking noob. I just started using linux and tor. I know not to connect to the same wifi network every time, but i only have two. is that sufficient, if i switch between them every time i refresh my identity or open this place up? Another question: how do i use 4chan without the fucking jannies blocking my IP for not wanting to succumb to their captcha ridden honeypot?

yesterday was my last day on 4chan. I caught a mod trying to shame me with a reply he made using quotations on a previous comment i had made. everything about it just rubbed me the wrong way. he probably thought he could scare me away by showing his power level, but ended up back firing on him. and then they deleted thread. I hate 4chan so much. i want it to die.

>>516 surf is also good, i used it for a wile but i have switch to TBB because its easier to block crap and only allow js form some sites
>>516 qutebrowser is fucking amazing. https://qutebrowser.org/ Dont know about the security on it tho. But it comes with greasemonkey so you can add javascript scripts (You can adblock then and install 4chanx and oniichan). >>530 Surf lacks alot of useful features imo. Like downloading files can be a hassle sometimes. An example of this is that i use surf as my whatsapp web client. But downloading files from the whatsappweb page isnt possible. But for browsing proper websites that dont give a fuck about javascript bloat and stupid features its awesome.

>>831 If you want to lower your power consumption, consider older ARM-based systems like those built around Cortex-A53 and Cortex-A7 processors. The advantage here is that not only they use less power than x86 laptops, but they're also totally invulnerable to the many x86 hardware bugs. These two ARM processors are also immune to all Meltdown and Spectre class bugs, because they don't do speculative execution. Granted that makes them slower than x86 or faster/newer ARM processors, but they're good enough for my needs. Added bonus: they don't even need a fan at all. The Raspberry Pi 3 and older boards use those processors, but there are better quality boards like for example those by Olimex. I have pic and run it off their 5V/1A power supply, and it does what I need it to. I use it as a headless server basically (over Ethernet), so you would need a bigger PS if you're going to connect LCD screen or whatnot. And my main computer is an A20 board (Cubietruck) which itself has a 5V/3A PS because I actually have a mechanical HDD attached to its SATA connector. This is only a dual-core 32-bit ARM Cortex-A7 @ 1 GHz though, so quite a bit slower than my other computer, but it still performs adequately for my needs. And an e-ink display would be a good choice for saving power compared to other screens. They've been coming down in price in the past few years, but I'm still using old 5:4 LCD VGA screens for now.
>>835 > immune to all Meltdown and Spectre class bugs >Intel & AMD installed botnet but ARM did not. All is botnet. The game was rigged from the start. From preliminary research I found there is no all-in-one solution for a mini solar generator. You need Solar panel + regulator + battery. Are there any all-in-one solutions out there that anons know of and I missed? Enough to run a laptop, or mini-stove, or soldering station post-apocalypse??
>>844 Nevermind, you're a dumbass. I'm not gonna help you, even though I have experience using solar panels and deep-cycle batteries in RVs.
I'm OP. >844 is not me. also that guy is retarded, they do make all-in-one systems they're just way above the price point and marketed to upper-class outdoors snobs or businesses where they need it to just werk. I think "GoalZero" makes some integrated, expensive stuff. eink screen would be sweet. I've been waiting... and waiting... and waiting... for a reasonably cheap 9-13+ inch packaged screen to come out for reasonably cheap but it doesn't seem to have happened yet. I have a couple little 1-3 inch screens in my parts bin I've been meaning to play with for a while. I have a few PINE and other ARM SBC boards, but nothing from Olimex. but it seems to me that it's hard to beat a laptop integrated form factor for this use case. I'm not sure any monitor manufacturers are as laser-focused on power consumption as the bare panels that go into laptops. What are your thoughts on the Pinebook and Pinebook Pro? Do you have a recommendation on a relatively cheap regulator? Like I said, just something that is a little better than the cheapo harbor freight crap I bought.
>>864 >I'm OP. >844 is not me. also that guy is retarded >>845 >you're a dumbass So I'm a dumbass and retard because I created a custom solution since the last time I posted? OK whatever faggots. >I'm not gonna help you, even though I have experience using solar panels and deep-cycle batteries in RVs. As we are jerking off our egos, I'll confess, I have experience in rocket design and didn't need your help. P.S. If you didn't know about the backdoors in ARM as well as the commonly known ones in INTEL and AMD - the fuck I care. Enjoy your ignorance.

Got most of the parts for free: Storage is 3x2tb hdds i3 6th gen Gtx750 What should I do with it? Installed Plex and nextcloud on it got tired pretty quickly and barely used it Just too lazy always uploading the files to the server to play them with Plex No motivation to fiddle around with server admin stuff Should I somehow use it as second pc for "productive" stuff so that I won't have all the distractions I would normally have? Money won't be worth anything soon so selling is not really worth it Really don't know what to do with it Also got a thinkpad I have no use for I really don't know what to do with that stuff I feel like giving all that stuff away for free to someone who really needs it although the cyberpunk notion would be to be surrounded by lots of technology I think there is some truth in all that minimalism stuff

What kind of thinkpad is that? From the latch I notice it is probably an older one with a 16:10 screen ratio. t. thinkpad man

>>863 ah, bummer. the x200 with ccfl backlights have a compatible AFFS (VA-like) screen that's a drop-in replacement. You can also put the same panel into the x200 LED and x201 (all LED) but then it's kind of a pain as you have to replace a cable and a backlight inverter as well which ends up being a more involved swap. and x220 and up have IPS screens as drop in replacements I was never able to find any sort of good swap for a t420 I had so I ended up giving it away as a gift a few years ago. There's that one alienware panel that's supposedly """good tn""" that you still need some hackjob cable for, then semi-recently I think they finally made some other mods but I think they still involve soldering directly to the dock displayport output on the mobo. But that sounded like a hassle and I think I'd already given mine away at that point. Kind of a shame as I liked some other stuff about the laptop but that screen made it painful to use. Nice to see a fellow TN-hater on here. I couldn't believe the amount of bad advice on /4/g about buying a gaming monitor or old thinkpad that fails to note the extremely critical fact that's it's fuccing TN garbage.

>>865 yep, I was fucking retarded when I bought it two years ago but it doesn't matter since I have never used it anyways
>>865 what's that image supposed to prove? that TNs have inversion? the image doesn't look right in ANY of those screens. VA viewing angles are trash IPS in my short experience (i only have like 5 of them) doesn't seem very good either (of course way better than VA and double way better than TN) like last time I looked at my IPS screens they actually still had viewing angle problems. also that orange glow bullshit in the LCD world all one can do is look for the best pixel response IPS with either high refresh rate or backlight strobes. but the refresh rate is limited (like you can only get reliably maybe 75Hz or 120Hz before getting a defective product - as in the pixel response goes to shit) get a CRT laptop im srs tho. LCDs have everyone bluepilled on thinking its normal to have to bend your neck once in a while to be able to see something, and to stop scrolling to read text
