Intel Vs. AMD

Building a new computer soon. I've been out of the market for a decade and much has changed. I've seen a lot of news about AMD overtaking Intel in the desktop processor market, but have never been an AMD fan. I am seriously considering AMD for my next build, but am concerned about processor heat, longevity, and linux compatibility. Intel will also release their new line of processors early next year, and I am tempted to wait for that. AMD has also been gunning for Nvidia, but currently does not have a superior graphics card. There is so much conflicting information online, and so many AMD fanboys it is difficult to find objective information on what to put in a build. I used to turn to YouTube for information, but so many channels appear to be bought and paid for. I am curious to hear what /g/'s consensus is on what to put in a new build. I plan to spend roughly 4k on the desktop and 1.5k on a high-res 200Hz monitor. I plan to use linux for my main OS and Windows for gaming and video editing. Also curious to hear about storage options. I'd like to use 2 or 4 M.2 SSDs for in pairs of RAID0 for the OS and 2 or 4 HDDs for backup. Anyone have a more effective/cost efficient setup? Appreciate your responses.

Post Your Office Space

My old monitor is nice and functional again so now I can watch video while I'm doing other things. Also handy for video editing and rendering. Had to move the fan on top of the printer tho... probably I should look for something smaller or more compact... or maybe get like one of those clippy fans and attach it it to one of the monitors. I should also get one of these dual monitor mounting jobbies... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07MC9YX63/ref=dp_cerb_3 Also need to get an extension cord for the microphone (seen under the riser there) so I can stick it over on the left hand side. I keep the graphics tablet underneath my regular mouse and mouse pad and then just move them to the side when I want to use it. I also have this pillow thing I put on the top of the desk and on the floor I have a big block of memory foam with a heating pad that I use in the winter time so it's nice and cozy, especially when I throw a blanket over the whole thing. Overall it's quite nice. I may be dirt poor... but at the very least I have a "corner office" surrounded by windows with scenic views. Always gotta look at the positives! :D

The inconvienient truth about linux

Why the Linux such a bad OS? The 4chan banned me off of the /qa/ board and range banned my town from image posting so we will discuss the bad parts about linux here instead There is a good part about it. However, If you have a job or a life it is worthless. The two major software suites that everyone needs is not availibe >doesnt have any adobe software >dont have office When it comes to resource usage, it plain just isn't better in any meaningful capacity compared to windows >the windoes OS lowers memory usage the less ram you have >person was able to trim windows 10 down to only using 450 mb of memory at idle >unused memory is wasted memory anyways Customization is something linux may have over windows, but ricing is a waste of time >linux ricers waste time constantly changing the apearance of their desktop weekly >windows can be riced too >windoes defaults work well for the 95% of people who use windows And linux is far more prone to breakages than windows

All AMD Processors Since Phenom II Have BadBIOS Circuitry That Leaks to the Military

Title gives my conclusion from empirical events I witnessed and inside info. PSP runs on the same circuit, but isn't the backdoor per se, which has been around for much longer. Just like AMD was able to change the crypto algorithms for the Zen chip they licensed to China, they can change how the CPU behaves at any system, even those already deployed. This can be used to sabotage any program or computation, making BadBIOS (uses radio, not sound) vastly nastier than StuxNet. American military made a grave mistake by giving access to the morons of the Brazilian military, who are letting knowledge of this spread like a fire (and misusing it for petty profit and inside jobs to justify a police state). Israel, UK and France also have access, but are much more professional.

"RMS Must Go!"

From https://rms-open-letter.github.io/ (https://archive.is/8lZiU): >Richard M. Stallman, frequently known as RMS, has been a dangerous force in the free software community for a long time. He has shown himself to be misogynist, ableist, and transphobic, among other serious accusations of impropriety. These sorts of beliefs have no place in the free software, digital rights, and tech communities. With his recent reinstatement to the Board of Directors of the Free Software Foundation, we call for the entire Board of the FSF to step down and for RMS to be removed from all leadership positions. >We, the undersigned, believe in the necessity of digital autonomy and the powerful role user freedom plays in protecting our fundamental human rights. In order to realize the promise of everything software freedom makes possible, there must be radical change within the community. ... While these ideas have been popularized in some form by Richard M. Stallman, he does not speak for us. We do not condone his actions and opinions. >There has been enough tolerance of RMS’s repugnant ideas and behavior. We cannot continue to let one person ruin the meaning of our work. Our communities have no space for people like Richard M. Stallman, and we will not continue suffering his behavior, giving him a leadership role, or otherwise holding him and his hurtful and dangerous ideology as acceptable. >We are calling for the removal of the entire Board of the Free Software Foundation. These are people who have enabled and empowered RMS for years. They demonstrate this again by permitting him to rejoin the FSF Board. ... We are also calling for Richard M. Stallman to be removed from all leadership positions, including the GNU Project. They have also attached an appendix that details the "repugnant" behaviour, seen in https://rms-open-letter.github.io/appendix (https://archive.is/cV20K): >RMS’s views on rape and child sex laws were publicly discussed in the Fall of 2019, when Selam G wrote about them. Especially chilling is when Stallman addresses the accusations that Marvin Minsky sexually assaulted one of Jeffrey Epstein’s trafficking victims (Virginia Giuffre) by saying “but the most plausible scenario is that she presented herself to him as entirely willing.” Seemingly, Stallman has a taste for shotacon. >Of a woman having sex with a minor, he said “I wish an attractive woman had ‘abused’ me that way when I was 14.” However, Stallman also has a disdain for the mentally retarded, including "poorly disguised" "transphobia". >n the original publication of the GNU Kind Communication Guidelines, he said “there are various ways to express gender neutrality in third-person singular pronouns in English; you do not have to use ‘they.’” This text has since been updated, but is still transphobic. The main page on his web site includes the statement that “‘They’ is plural — for singular antecedents, use singular gender-neutral pronouns.”

Does anybody know of a good monitor or tv for 720p content? I'd really like a monitor that has EXACTLY 1280x720 pixels at a 1:1 Pixel Aspect Ratio. It seems impossible to find such a thing, just endless rows upon rows of 1366x768 shitters. I fucking hate scaling and it seems to me that trying to display a 1280x720 video stream on these is going to cause blurry scaling. If true 1280x720 devices don't exist, then does anybody know of at least a 1366x768 that would let me display pixel-to-pixel in the middle of the frame? Really I'm mostly interested in something that would look good displaying a 1280x720p @ 30 hz signal from a PS3. It looks great but too small on my 20" 4:3 CRT and it looks like absolute ass scaled to 1080p on my bigg projector. I thought it would be a simple matter to just get a used 720p monitor for this purpose but they don't seem to exist in any quantity. The only display I have that is exactly 1280x720 is my GPD Win and it lacks an input port (in addition to being only 5 inches). >HDCRTs Wish I could find a nice one at around the 20"-24" ish size. I can find these all day on craigslist near me but they are absolutely fucking massive and I'm not looking for a 300 lb 36" monster at the moment. >The 24" and 32" Widescreen BVMs fucking epic, true multiscan with no lag but I don't have $10,000 and two weeks to burn driving to southern california and back for pickup and calibration. >PC CRTs Would be happy with one of those big epic sony monitors but they're around $1000 last I checked, seems most of the deals are gone. Would be worth it at around that price but they don't do 15khz signals. >Plasma I've heard various good things about these, but don't know much about them. They rose to prominence then faded away at a time when I wasn't in the market for a new TV. These are fixel-pixel displays right? Are they actually true 1280x720? Are there any other scaling autists here? Please Respond.

Misuse of Israeli Surveillance Tech for Massive Violation of Human Rights

There is a criminal organization in Brazil using NSO Group's Pegasus to infect devices for hack for hire, to incite terrorism, blackmail people, produce illegal pornography and assist in assassinations. They also have other advanced malware, like UEFI implants and even persistent implants for Kindle and Raspberry Pi. Plus face/voice recognition on every camera and microphone they can get into, in public or private places. Brazil won't do anything to stop them. Only the FBI, CIA and NSA can stop them. There is also the possibility that they were engaged on the hack of Bezos' smartphone. If you know of any security researcher who wants to reverse engineer the exploits they are using, I am more than willing to help them. If you want a story about how they operate, I am willing to work with you to expose them.

Heads up lads, trannies are getting their mits into Monero. https://github.com/monero-project/monero/issues/7060 Adopting more inclusive terminology #7060 >I was scanning through the codebase and observed use of "grandfathering" in https://github.com/monero-project/monero/blob/master/src/cryptonote_core/blockchain.cpp. >I propose we replace its use with more inclusive terms like "legacied" or "exempted". >For context on the complicated nature of the term and its racist origin please refer to: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grandfather_clause This is important because it is the only currency that you can reliably receive if (((they))) deplatform you from the entire financial system. Last I checked Andrew Anglin of the Daily Stormer used Monero exclusively for donations.

A time ago my brother brought me a SMD Rework Station, to help me on repair our things. But, HOLY SHIT! WHY IS SO HARD?!

Why aren't you using a microkernel hypervisor?

SculptOS (Genode Framework+seL4) is a secure microkernel operating system that can easily be used to run virtual machines. It supports a variety of real hardware including Intel WLAN and iGPUs. It's less than 30MB and boots almost instantly, and even has a basic GUI built in. https://genode.org

Idea for a political game

it's a civilization game where you take charge of a small group of people at the beginning of time and try to raise it to a great civilization. the difference here is that you choose specific policies for you civilization, and the results of any set of policies are based upon how exactly how those sets of policies worked in the past. eventually, the player community will determine which policies are the best to use. everything is designed to be a 1:1 depiction of reality, as close as possible, even the way you take control of you initial population is also true to the way the first human societies were formed. there is also the distribution of genes among your people and the lifeforms around you, all of which are affected by your decisions as well, along with the environment, and each individual's genes determines their traits just as they would in real life. Genetic data is largely hidden from you until you have the tech to see it, and actually ask for that information to be determined for you. speaking of which, you can ask those under you to gather information, you also get updates on the visible affects of your policies on the people, though some of the less visible stuff must be actively looked into. you cannot directly choose the advancement of technology or culture like you do in sid mier's, nor do you directly instruct people to build structures (if you want a wall, you choose policies concerning border security, and a wall follows from that), people who are not politicians are the ones who do that, you are a political leader, not a scientist, engineer, architect, or artist, your power is strictly political in nature, only the ability of a real human leadership is given to you, though this means that you do not need to conduct research to discover political policies, you simply have all of them available to you from the beginning. on that note, you can choose from any political policy that has ever existed or from any political policy that had ever been proposed (the effects of these will need to be extrapolated from what is already known, or what is most likely). the game ignores things like how leaders are chosen, as you are leader for life, issues like parliament or democracy are not even mentioned. some of your policies also determine how you interact with the societies of the other players in the world with you, I mentioned "other players" because this game has no AI players in it, all societies you share Earth with are run by real people, each of which spawns in a random location on the Earth, with all the affects the locations will have on the society and it's people down the line. all players begin at the dawn of humanity and it's civilizations, just after mankind has occupied every continent and island (with the exception of naturally uninhabitable places like antarctica) so everyone starts out equal. the descriptions of events that occur are described to the player in such a way that they will know their causes, eventually a meta will form and people will learn to craft a political system that resembles the ideal. AI societies can emerge later on, as they from when groups pf people split off from those of the players, fr example america resulting from briton colonists who seceded. the game will update the effects of policies, environments, and their combinations, as new information becomes available, this is in order to keep the game as accurate to the facts as it can be. this updating system will operate on a wiki like basis, but one free of censorship and bias (meaning that anyone caught being offended, anti-white, anti-male, left-of-center, or even being centrist is removed immediately, in order to prevent them from taking over and subverting the whole thing), with set standards on evidence (such as statistics) and argumentation (such as a ban on the use of logical fallacies), we will constantly remind each other of the past takeovers our enemy has committed, some not even /pol/ related, such as the corruption of the SCP wiki, and ask offenders to compare and contrast their actions with those who played roles in the initial stages of other documented subversion events, just so actual shills will know that we know their playbook, and that they will be forced to distance themselves from things that occur in later stages, only for them to be banned for good when they eventually support the very thing they denounced. we will have people who see to it that conclusions follow from method/data, and that the methodology/evidence adheres to the standards they have to, and that the standards are kept constant for everything, etc. they re to police each other to see to it that their own biases don't creep into their judgments, even when those biases are those held by some version of /pol/. the goal is simple, to determine the most ideal form of society, and to have more people discover it on their own through experimentation. a simulation game like this makes it fun.

Hi everyone! I have a question about image serving. I'm making a 4chan clone, and currently what I do is I download the image from the client, make thumbnails on the web server, and then I use rsync to send it to my "image server" which is just an Ubuntu box that serves a folder impartially. An issue (I think) is that I end up downloading the user's file twice. I download it once on the web server, and then again on the "image server."

I also have to make thumbnails, in which case I just use imagemagick. Currently, I make the thumbnails on the web server because I will likely have multiple instances of them running, it seems fitting to have harsher processes there. As a result, I also send the thumbnails and more to the "image server."

One issue I have is that I also have to manually delete files via rsync. While nginx is fast, if I were to soft delete a file in my database (the database contains basic file information like filename, format, date, and more), I wouldn't be able to forward the changes and prevent the box from serving the files. I depend on rsync to work, when I would prefer "checking" if a file is allowed to be shared before I send it to the client. Do you think it would be worth it to write up a REST api to ensure more control?

As you can see, there is no sync between the file system and the database, and this can result in me serving illegal content or for stale content to stack up and waste space.

Do you guys have any suggestions to how I can improve this architecture? Are there better ways to handle this? I'm going to have one instance of an "image server" and multiple instances of my web servers. I really don't want some random power outage to occur and end up serving illegal content unknowingly because I would have no way to sync my file system the database.

One solution I was thinking of was forwarding the request to a custom REST api that would communicate with the database and check if the files are safe to share. The only issue is that this doesn't solve the duplicate download....

Any advice would be helpful!

Daily reminder that:

As human beings your thoughts produce radio waves that can be measured and decoded.
Majority of governments on earth access all human brains the same way you access host computers on a network. 1950's research.
Its 2019 and the cell phone doesnt include a firewall.
People are suppose to be on earth to learn and live for their creator country and families however they are manipulated, studied and harvested as energy sources from birth.
You are fed lies poisons and disinformation from birth from your government to attempt to rob you of salvation.
Every citizen in the US unwillingly participates in an MKULTRA Behavioral modification program that scans your social media phone thoughts and body language and assigns you a "score" allowing you to progress in society.
