What is the worst thing ever happened on your PC?

i downloaded the monkey anti virus on windows xp and a bunch of monkeys would be on my screen until my dad reseted everything


I coded my own Bonzi Buddy in 2003 that was free and open source. I promoted it alongside Bearshare in 2003 as grapeape.exe

The torrent existed till around 2007 but I deleted it. Not sure if anyone still has a copy out there. I'd imagine there's a few. You'll just have to dig a little bit perhaps.


Oh no not the deamons in microprocessors


I had avast on it as as kid and it would slowdown the by then 10 year old pc from the early 90s


one time somebody hacked into the mainframe

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 aren't bad but if you didn't really grow up or experience them before. It'll just be a novelty/"meme" item for you to have. You'll stop using it after a while and then wish you could get rid of it due to lack of space. I have 8 CRTs and they definitley will clutter up your surroundings with nowhere to put them. They also cost quite a bit to properly dispose of which is why a lot of people will just sit them by dumpsters, etc. To be fair my clutter of CRTs I never purchased or went out of my way for. They're all the ones that still works that I've had since the late 80s.

I don't think you understand a hoarder's mentality. To have kept the same TVs and computer monitors since childhood. Either a collector, a hoarder, and/or a madman.


Crts are only good for throwing at people. They shoot radiation into the screen and some passes into your eyes, if you stand too close you will cook the membrane in your eyeballs and maybe develop cancer. The thing your mom told you about not standing too close to the tv its true.


Only going to get a little bit of cancer, Sharon.

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.

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 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.

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)

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

How often does a computer needs to be cleaned?
4 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


I use bleachbit almost daily and I clean my computer 1-2 times a month by vacuuming the dust filters and I clean the dust from top of my PC case, too. I use DBAN for nuking old HDDs.

> dust filters
This!! After having a case with dust filters, you aren't going to buy a case without them!


Take the Silverstone Mammothpill


I have never ever cleaned my computer ever


What if there's a dead rat inside?

Ghost Rider 2099. The run from the 1990s. The guy who ceated it was really into cyberpunk and there's tons of references to hacking and other cyberpunk stuff. Later on he got switched out with another writer and apparently the series went downhill. There seems to have been a recent reboot but I've not checked out all of it or kept up with it so I don't know where it's at.


where can i read tomorrow knights?

Sounds like its a bit rare.


This was some pretty good stuff.
