Is 4GB of ram still normal in present day? I switched from 2GB and everything works perfectly. For me personally, it is enough.



12GB is the patrician choice.


It's actually not. 16GB is standard nowadays.


This! Unless you're working on a side project or using a lower-end rig for other various reasons. But for your main rig 16GB is the standard.


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.

How long has everyone been using Firefox here? Even if it's not your "main" browser.
2005 here.


This, ungoogled chromium is pretty comfy desu.


Do you have a reliable link to download?



Do I need to do any tweaks with this or is it good to go from the source?
Sorry for the dumb questions.

What is the worst thing ever happened on your PC?

I once formatted my 3TB Media drive on accident while trying to format something else and thus lost all my music, shows, movies and photos.
Luckily I was able to restore some of the important stuff but man, did I feel stupid.
I was a lot younger and dumber back then though and I have since adopted double redundancy for all my files.


Damn, I'm sorry. That sounds awful.


Everybody knows dd stands for "disk destroyer"

Listened to my idiot friend about downloading Teamviewer.

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.

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


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)




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.

That's what I use, so I guess I win too?

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.

What got you into Linux?
4 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


I dual boot for vidya but honestly switching to Mint as my primary OS was the best decision I ever made

Yeah, still 4chan though kek


I bought a Chromebook for school back in the ninth grade, it was cheap. Wanted to play counterstrike so I used a script from some Google dev to dual boot the thing. Was worth it and I got into linux from there.


When I was a kid, my dad and I put together a computer and set up Kubuntu on it. I'm not sure what inspired him, given he's never really used Linux.


also the customization and a good terminal kek

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.

Cool people use Arch with OpenRC.


I've got Void with runit on my laptop right now, pretty good so far.


no cool person uses Arch, stop spreading lies

*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
