Talk about old computers or other tech you've given a new home. An old enterprise PC turn production/gaming rig, an old laptop resurrected with Linux, etc. What orphaned computer do you take care of /cy/?

Crts make eyes hurt and coocks brain

Dont stand too close to the tv1!1!!


and a lot of older games look better on CRTs too


It might be the case that a lot of older games look better on CRTs, but that doesn't change the fact that speedrunning those games feels much better on HRT.

>>2177 >>2179 >>2180
can i look into CRTs for a new setup I'm planning on? I love the 90s / 2000s style but I never seriously looked into them. I just remember using them when I was a kid. Now you guys are raising my hopes up. Is this a stupid thing?

Correct, its a well know strategy in the speedrunning community that using HRTs will get though "The Game of Life" faster. It lets you skip all of the important events, and go straight to the end

I’m working on an OS
What features should I add
1 post omitted. Click reply to view.


Something wildly different from all the others, on the same level as "everything is a file" in unix or the registery in windows. I can't think of any good features since I've never made an OS, but make it something fundemental and unique to your OS. Good luck and I hope you create something useful and/or inspiring!


Make it incompatible with any form of javascript.


I'm just making it as a hobby-project. Not much about it is set in stone but it's targeted for computers and is GUI not CLI


Make unix but with windows ui


make it easier to rice by making a GUI that integrates the most common bins and config files.
people like rice but it takes time to go trough everything in your machine all with different configs too, sometimes gui, sometimes conf file, or bin etc…
also make it cyber themed by default(or add the rice onto setup opcinal something like that)

Github just announced their "copilot": https://copilot.github.com/

What do you think about it? To me it sounds like someone was upset that programmers tend to enjoy the creative side of their job so they outsourced it to an AI. But don't worry, you won't loose your job, you are still useful for debugging and fixing the randomly generated mess your AI overlord produces in the name of efficiency.


I’m kinda spooked but I don’t mind. I knew that this would happen, it’s why I shy away from anything that’s not self-hosted so I’m not a part of it. Kinda excited to see what it brings since you can’t really stop it.


I wonder if it will catch on, writing specifications in natural language and then debugging the randomly generated code sounds a lot more effort than just writing the code yourself. At least when you are debugging code written by another human you can assume that they had a reason to write the code the way it is, but figuring out what the generated code actually does, is that correct, and if not, how to make it correct, sounds a lot harder.

It makes me wonder what kind of work the people excited about this do, where this is the actual bottleneck. I know that even if the AI could write the same code as I do, it wouldn't drastically change my job, because that's not the actually hard part of software engineering in my field.

I'm not sure how the Microsoft copilot thing has been keeping up, it's banned where I work, but it is hilarious to see the internet slowly realize that this ChatGPT thing is little more than astrology at scale. If the copilot is similarly effective, that's really concerning. People always bitch about how low quality software is and I really doubt this has improved the quality. Personally I think these are dead ends and if software engineers wants to live up to their title they should stop playing around with these toys and start working on making their discipline more rigorous, because right now it is 100% bullshit driven.

I want to get a schway bike for cruising and freedommaxxing, so I will probably buy something from before year 2k, so I wouldnt have to bother with digital repair systems.
Unfortunately I just can't decide what kind of style I want to drive with. I think all of them are fun as fuck and while I guess that cruisin through the city on a nice cruiser or chopper styled bike, I also think that a more sporty alternative would feel schway.
Obviously 1 is the most /cyber/ because it's a customization of 5 but I haven't got any mechanical experience yet.

What would you recommend from a /cyber/ perspective and why?

Also talk about schway /cyber/ vehicles in general, may it be concepts, upcoming, existing or custom vehicles.

Who do you think you fooling? Please go outside for a bit my man, life its more than this.


Number 1

I think it is cute. The other one's look too cool.


You are the one making threats like a child to a bunch of people on the internet, and then trying to act like you are so mature and cultured. All it shows is you are the cancer that you are trying to complain about.


Can you quote what made you feel threatened?lmao turn it off my man


dude why are you like this

i was standing on top of a hill. i could see a green valley below me with rolling moundss continuing to the horizon. above me was a high voltage pylon towering over me like a giant. here it looked so massive it could put skyscrapers to shame. a million cables were drawn from it, connecting it to the other pylons. like tightropes continuing into infinity.
forever before me, and forever behind.
i listened to the beastly hum of the electric current. this was the only noise from the megacity far behind me that i could still hear, even in here in the countryside. a warm summer's evening, almost tropical in temperature. it was that time of year when through the whole night it would look like an endless sunset. a fiery red glow in the distance. we were barely reaching the twilight zone.
the pylons were rusty.
almost like dead trees still standing, they stood silently without even making a creak in the wind.
like giant skeletons from the past.
still standing like they always had, sustaining life in the city while being lifeless themselves.
still standing here.
like a loyal dog waiting for its owner. even though they might never return.
still waiting,
until forever.
how the copper and steel has oxidized so shall i one day decay.
for the brief moment i am alive, i wait.

Nice song but I feel like it lacks something, it keeps building up without ever reaching the peak and then just suddenly starts to decline…

Talk about doing things to your hardware the manufacturer probably doesn't like. Modded game consoles, rooting difficult to root mobile devices, bios and firmware mods for computers and computer parts, jerry rigging, etc.


i cracked my 3ds, some shit doenst work

i still wish i had a jtagged xbox360 for forza 4 mods ;__; i still have a working 360 but i'm too afraid to do anything to it because i wanna preserve the playability for the classic games as long as possible


cfw on psp, homebrew on wii, free mcboot ps2 memory cards, and flashed some region mod hardware to play games on my Japanese consoles and vice versa.

I had of ot those cheap big pc cases and was missionaring this fat bitch on top of it and it broke the motherboard snapped and the cooling went everywhere


File: 1668800375628.gif (1.52 MB, 498x356, goodtimes.gif)

This is why fucking fat chicks is wrong. Something always pays the price.


I got a sweet deal on a used 3TB HDD on eBay. Fucking thing fried a SATA port on my motherboard.


I shot my computer with a 12 gauge shotgun to let the daemons out before they could further corrupt my mind. So in the end it was for the good of mankind. No regrets.

Post music with a pretty strong /cy/ Feel. Can be explicitly cyberpunk, doesn't have to be though. It can be loud, comfy, horrifying, anything. I'll start off with some classics.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uoZgZT4DGSY (yeah it's the most 4/mu/ thing to put out there, but it's good)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZO9POWDjDX8 (probably won't be everyone's cup of tea, if you're aussie you'd probably appreciate this more than I do)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oM6eZJRurFk (small CS-inspired game that was very strongly inspired by GitS. It also has a beautiful ass soundtrack that never plays in game)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sSZDm5BPyaA (obligatory breakcore)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yAP6m5aPsBA (obligatory "vaporwave")
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HtMne6RXg4E (obligatory yakui/maidcore pick)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Dhk_e2DmhI (obligatory outrun pick)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fHI8X4OXluQ (obligatory electropop pick)

Hope to see your recommendations soon.

Don't forget this classic



coltrane - zeke didn't "invent dariacore", i did

Not talking about the rest of the site, but I can highly recommend the lainchan radio for /cy/ songs.

I don't think someone who marries a bigcorpo richborn techbillionaire can be seen as cyberpunk. Personal tastes aside, but I would never let a techbillionaires waifu inflitrate my playlist and call it cyberpunk.

Hi I'm a big fan of the whole aesthetics of sorta cyber, sorta elektromagnetik stuff.. any of you folks interested in electronics like that?

It is pretty wild thinking how things have become so streamlined and sterile.


I kinda liked when things were kinda funky to get it working, it gave that acomplishment that you did something right.

The early 2010s android ui was so bad but so good in retrospect

Bring these back



Consumer electronics of the 2000s were so much more interesting than the expensive shapes we have now that encourage people to seek any "convenience" at all cost


Bring back fmv players
