I wanted to make a somewhat niche imageboard but my friend dropped out of the developing due to depression and i am more of an idea/design/admin kinda of person than good programmer and it ended up being more work that i can handle, i've been admin/mod for forums back in the day but never really the coding guy so we kinda just shot down the domain.

Has any of you operated something like that? Or has a cool webspace? or want to do one with me


Have you thought of joining wirechan maybe?

Lainchan and Arisuchan are full of idiots now, and 4/g/ is out of the question. But this imageboard could use some activity, any ideas?

What happened to Initiate and Tsukichan?


The 8ch refugees are really killing lainchan unfortunally


I haven't been around to Lainchan in a few months now. What's going on?


walls of text about politics, anti warez people, weed and soft drugs, boomer/zoomer discussions, gay shit, people who know nothing about lain, people who think that lain is about being cyberpunk, etc.

Just look yourself
This thread is fucking disgusting

Lain is out there weeping in pain. My heart can't take it.

Actually Lain.


My friend convinced me to try and since I like tinkering with shit, I instantly took a liking to it.


i wanted to try installing it but i'm afraid that my autism will cause some bad shit to happen to my pc


Embrace autism anon, and enjoy it, it is the way to clean your soul from the outside world contamination, soon you wil have a healthy diet based on pizza an yo wil become unable to speak in the same language as normies do.


>healthy diet based on pizza
>unable to speak in the same language as normies
Aboslutely based, sign me up.

Is 4GB of ram still normal in present day? I switched from 2GB and everything works perfectly. For me personally, it is enough.
3 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


I have 16 Gigs in my main machine, but I also use that one for photoshop/premiere and music production. I use my laptop for pretty much only browsing the web and reading and I never reach past 4 Gig doing that. So I'd say, you do you, there's no point in upgrading if you don't need it.


i mean, main rig has 8gb, t510 has 4gb and im working in setting up a minecraft server with 2gb and a ib with 1gb, 16gb seems too much of a meme, yet again i didnt upgrade my pc until its intel 2 quad and 2gb of ram shit the bed


When will 32GB be the standard?


The cheap second-hand laptop I got last year has 8GB and that's been a pretty big change for me, I was used to 4GB up to that point. I'm still shocked to hear of people using 16. Though I suppose using a bunch of ever-expanding spyware (read: Windows) can be pretty intensive. Unless I suddenly have a change of heart and start getting heavily into gaming, I don't think I'll ever need more than this.


Standard for what? for hardcore gaming maybe, also for Pixar level modeling or Hollywood level video edition, for other tasks no, I run a lot VM and I don't need more than 8GB, of course when I do that work I only can do that work, same with video edition and other similar tasks. Of course if you use a super bloated system even 16GB eventually become not enough.

Agree, its a meme, and a very bad one.

I hope never ever.

Does anyone here still use a CRT?
17 posts and 1 image reply omitted. Click reply to view.




Hell yeah! Not mainly of course, but for retro games.


I've been interested in finding one. Haven't used a CRT monitor since 2006. But I have plenty of CRT TVs around me.


Not for PC, but I have one that has all the consoles before Xbox 360 hooked up to it. With the exception of the Wii, which is also hooked up to the CRT just because.


I need to seriously look into getting a CRT. I just honestly would like to have a few for the novelty of it. It's been a very long time since I've used one.

Yeah, I'd say it was around that time as far as my personal use would go. I did however use a few up until around 2010 in other various places outside of my home.

This guy understand me


Have you guys tried Opera GX yet?


No, have you?


I haven't yet. But I may decide to give it a try in the next day or two. More or less have been curious about it in the meanwhile.

Whoops, sorry, lost my Oculus Rift.

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


I still have my Virtual Boy. I do need to get a replacement stand for it though.

Have you ever operated a chan?

What does it take, in terms of memory, CPU, bandwidth and disk space to run a chan? Let's suppose it's at wirechan's posting rate.

What software is best? Vichan? Lynxchan?

i would like to, but i am dumb as fuck, can you guys help me? please? i wanna install lynxchan, but i don't know much about operating websites. what if i want to run it on my old computer in garage? on my personal network? will i get doxxed or something? help pls


if someone can help me too plz, im strugling so hard


vichan is overrated but so is anything when it sets the standard especially for clones. Lynxchan looks like ass out of the box and its configuration is not for beginners.


what would you recommend me as a c# newbie retard, who knows basically nothing about php, js or so? thanks


If you have to ask, don't run one. I literally owned one when I was 12, it's piss easy. Figure it out yourself.

Listened to my idiot friend about downloading Teamviewer.


File: 1565141235843.gif (151.78 KB, 400x267, 1548982492227.gif)

TeamViewer is trash. I had a friend who tried to get me to download that as well. Straight up didn't bother or trust it from the get go and then heard about the incident that happened with the users not too long later. Also I'm craving some coffee now, thanks.

ouff, I physically cringed reading that and sucked in air through my teeth. I totally get that and have also fucked up many a installations by messing with repositories and dependencies.
