Good morning, evening and night, /g/. I'd like to talk to you about a pretty popular but lacking and somewhat horrible distro that you're all aware of; Arch GNU/Linux.

Arch wiki is GOAT

What browsers do you guys use to surf the web?
I use firefox developer edition so i can install my won addons.

What other tools do you use to get around the net?

One made youtube show the newest comments first by default.
Ik; youtube comments are the lowest of the low,
but i'd rather see the ones that are more recent than the ones people vote on.
Youtube changed since i made it,
so it doesn't work anymore.

One runs sentiment analysis on text you write to it and plots the results over time.
This was just for fun: a hackathon project i did with some other people.


I use luakit and I think it's really comfy. It has vim keybindings for browsing which is the most important for me. I really like the fact that it's extensible in Lua so you can write your own things if you need to. Really recommend it.


if you had to compare it to qutebrowser or hacked up surf, how does it compare? I've been loving simplicity and straighforwardness of qutebrowser and it's love for vim bindings, makes web browsing much less soykafty, but the fact that those who compile qute with webkit as their browser engine are secondary class citizen and that it uses python puts me off.


qutebrowser is quite comfy

What is the worst thing ever happened on your PC?
13 posts and 2 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


Yeah, mine eventually died from corrupted RAM, it's still laying in my closet… Just in case.
The warranties are p nice with those PSUs, have to give them respect.


When I was like 13 or 14 I installed a cd drive by myself. They were still a new thing at the time and I had no idea what to do, so I decided to put it in from the inside, and of course it didn't fit. I put on more pressure and shit and eventually the drive flew across the room and the case was deformed, but after realizing my mistake I got it to work just fine. Maybe not the worst but easily the most stupid thing I ever did, aside from sucking bill gates dick for way too long.


used cum instead of thermal paste. amateur mistake I suppose


I accidentally rewrote part of my disk with an Artix ISO.
Be careful when using dd, kids!


Amateur mistake? Nah, it happens to some pros too, don't worry.

Have you heard of Hy?
It's Lisp that works like Python.
You can access Python libraries even.
What do you think of it?


File: 1533299643019.jpeg (50.82 KB, 500x333, hissing.jpeg)



I think it actually great.
I don't know any thing about Hy macro system yet, but I think it will be great.
I skimmed it's getting start page and it seem to be some one build clojure on python.

Does anyone here still use a CRT?
13 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


Is there any advantage to CRT aside from being retro?
Screens are small, but they take a lot of place and I imagine also a lot of electricity.


i just want some free screens honestly


You'll want one if you are into retrogaming since the aspect ratio will be correct and there is no upscaling and so on. Otherwise I don't know why one would still use a CRT. If they are free and you can use them for something then why not though.

Still using my Dell Trinitron, working like a charm.
>Screens are small
This one is pretty big, and it supports 1600x1200 resolution (i use 1280x1024, because that's the highest resolution that can display in 85hz)

*AAAaargh why doesn't it work on the lcd display channel with this board lol

Hmm, it's probably just a loose/weak connection somewhere..?
> built little harness for micro + display breakout out of an old ide ribbon cable, female headers and proto circuit board
> tested pinouts individually with blink script and led, pins 4-10, 14-16. Seems ok / pass
> test display + micro on breadboard. Also not working? / fail
> test display + nano on breadboard. Seems good


It's working on the breadboard now =D

Kind of an odd solution, but dropping the clock rate back down to 8Mhz with xdiv=0x01, same as the nano got results

void nnn_ILI9341::clock_modifier(uint8_t xdiv){
CLKPR = 1<<7;
CLKPR = xdiv & 0x0F;


Well, it worked for a bit on the breadboard, loose connections(?) permitting

Still no luck with the harness / display out, though it's reading the touch input over spi just fine


Started making a second harness using solid-core jumper-wires, display tested okay on usb power prior to wiring in the touch interface, but now again doesn't want to work

Also with both harnesses display and touch works when the micro is powered directly from a couple of AA batteries, as an anon mentioned elsewhere


More tests, 2xAA through a little voltage step-up chip for 5 volts, 32u4 / harness 2
Display is working

Tried to repeat display working without touch connected using jumpers, usb connected / fail?

It really doesn't want to work on the 32u4/pro micro with usb connection for some reason

Whoops, sorry, lost my Oculus Rift.


You have one?


I don't have either, I kinda wish though. Do you?


i use google cardboard.
it costs literally 50 cents
assuming you have some smartphone already.


I used that for a while, it was ok. Although fun, there weren't a lot of apps and games for it back when I used it. So hopefully when I buy another one and get another smartphone I'll get into it again.


i just wanna use it as a virtual screen
