>a lot of PCIe 2-3 for routing, tv, soundcard and probably a shitty amd gpu that has a foid on it. Which mobo should i seek for?

Dunno if it is helpful, what I once had was an AMD Athlon II X4 CPU Socket AM2, AMD 785G+SB710 chipset ATX mobo iirc.

Such should still be good for a server / NAS too. Needed to check its specs first, been long time now, guess 2008 or sth.

Had got an Asrock A785GXH mobo (checked), very stable, which had:

>1x PEG slot, extra graphics.

Onboard graphics should suffice for server/NAS. Alternatively for fast SATA3 multi-connector adapter card.

If you need modern graphics card with hardware support for codecs you could prob buy one. nth fancy.

Entry lvl card that does h.265 a.o. modern codecs, to use it for newest media. RTX 3050 or lower, or similar by AMD

>1x PCIe x4 slot (back in the days all were PCIe v. 2).

Combine it with PCIe x4 network card, e.g. a Startech ST1000SPEX42 4x Gb Ethernet or similar, add 4 network interfaces.

But beware those multi-connector cards can be costly. Alternatively SATA3+USB3.0 combo adapter card..

>1x PCIe x1 slot @500 MB

Good for USB3.0, 2 to 3 connector card (one to front, should suffice.) Alternatively SATA3+USB3.0 combo adapter card,

sth like Transcend TS-PDC3 Combo (2x USB3.0, 2x SATA3.), or Gb Ethernet card with 2 connectors.

>1x GbE network interface extra onboard.

So you can try to combine for what you need:

PCIe x1 network card (usually 2 plugs) and 1 onboard, plus PCIe x4 SATA3/USB3 combo card (handful fast connects extra)

Or other way, up to 4 network connects and 1 onboard, plus PCIe x1 SATA3/USB3 combo card (a few fast connects extra)

I am sure that there are more qualified people here than me but basically Q represents upper bound of your consciousness. Since everything in universe is intense energy and react with each other there is a lower and upper bound for your mind too. The paper discusses virtual energy and how it is effected by gravitional forces and triple variables. Q is the upper dimension which is effected by energy therefore matter. At page 16 the triangle is represented clearly. It shows how Q can be represented by units of E and M. And how M can be represented by units of Q and E.

On that page it says that Q represents "virtual charge" and the author equates that to consciousness. So do you think this trying to say that consciousness has real world affects on energy and matter based on the amount of "virtual charge" is produced?

I tried using these formulas for an electron and Q did not equal the known charge of an electron.

Enjoy your cuck licensing. The BSDs are technically great but the same things could be done in GNU/Linux. You don't need to install gnome,ubuntu, etc. You can install a window manager like DWM, i3, cwm and get something like Arch, Crux, and Alpine and customize your packages for your own needs by using their ports system.

I literally haven't switched distros in years and I use Arch without systemD thanks to the control I have with ports.

I actually envy you, I really wanted to like BSD and I've tried to use FreeBSD for a week without linux twice but I don't like it but I want to like it.

Debian is cool and I feel like it's the closest I can go to the stability of BSD without the compatibility issues, Debian has less bloat than that Ubuntu shit and, I wish I could find what's this 'bloat' that linux has, I can definately see it when going from Ubuntu to Debian or Linux Mint to Debian but not when going from Debian to FreeBSD.

And I got a desktop environment, sound and internet on FreeBSD. Jeez I'm glad you're happy with it and hope you don't run away from BSD like I did. :D Have fun.

t. man who learned web with Flask, SQLAlchemy, Bootstrap, aka all the EZ mode stuff. It still was long, disheartening and felt like I kept opening more caves with more coffers full of more work every day.

>I'm studying for a course at Udemy, The Web Developer Bootcamp.

I followed the Flask Mega Tutorial Series (2/3rds, you don't need to deploy on Linux, and Docker, and Heroku).

>Also, I'm learning Python from a book (back end). I know a lot of things really are missing, but is that a good start? What to do before??

Ok here's the run down: first off being "fullstack" is mostly useless except in name because companies will either have the money to hire multiple specialised devs (front, back, and anus licker), or hire only one that'll have to only pretend that he can fullstack.

Fullstack is BS. It's the same as learning "the right framework". Literally any framework you learn in JS, Python, C#, Ruby, Elixir, w/e, will cover only a very relative part of the market. I learn Vue, they ask for Angular, I learn Angular, they ask for React, I learn all three, they wonder if I am ok with doing everything in JQuery.

DO NOT try to be fullstack. Try to have basic understanding/some production experience on each field so you know what to talk about. Specialise in what you like best.

When I wanted to learn, I took the easiest/best to learn stuff, and it still took insane amounts of time. Learning to properly dev your web specialisation takes a solid year at least, fullstacking, meaning all from DB to front-end, UX, app functionality, website design, interactivity, w/e, would take 3 at least. That's the time to master a non-BS language, that is insane and completely unnecessary.

Learn what is useful to you and get basic knowledge in the rest. I stopped at setting a DB, getting a basic looking frontend, a solPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Information on paper is very hard to encrypt and even harder to hide. Ted had incriminating notes in his posession when he was arrested, and even the ones he tried to encrypt with pen and paper were eventually deciphered by the feds.

We can use medium level technology such as 8 bit microcontrollers. But to get and program those we need transportation to go buy them, the Internet to search for programming manuals for them, desktop computers capable of running the programming software, programming hardware that likely has to be ordered through the Internet and delivered to a postal address, etc.

Or we can use high level tech such as cellphones which can be bought on almost any store. But then those devices are very hard to actually secure. It's extremely hard to swap the operating system on any random cheap cellphone bought at a store. And even if we try to encrypt the data, because we don't control the operating system some of that data is going to remain unencrypted on the OS, and able to be retrieved through forensic methods.

Laptops are easy to secure, but consume too much energy to be charged using a cheap solar panel which could be bought by somebody who doesn't hold a job.

So what's the answer for those who want to use minimal technology but also want to have privacy?

Why would you need to encrypt anything in the first place? You're just banging rocks and sticks together in the middle of nowhere.

>So what's the answer for those who want to use minimal technology but also want to have privacy?

Minimal technology is actually hurting you here. You're a homo habilis caveman against NSA aliens who run a galactic empire. Only way forward is to make better and more advanced technology. Going back to primitivism will only defer this. Humanity is currently at unfortunate stage where things started to suck a bit, but we can either push forward to type I civilization or die due to resource exhaustion or some planet killer type event. Forcing your will on the world like Ted did will achieve nothing and you'll still be unhappy with how things are.

really, lurk in garage sales, got mine for about 5€.

P3 500ish thing.

I finally ordered a new screen for the 600X. other had dead lines and a defective bulb, plus a 32Gb SSD, cheapest PATA adapter and some mSATA into it. Avoid chink shit like Aliexpress, SSDs there are bullshit, on eBay however you have the chance to find some Intel stuff, and they're decent.

On eBay they sell around 100, 200$ or some absurd shit for a 1024 panel, not even an anti-glare full HD screen costs this but I found one locally that was 30$, shipping included. Normally it should cost no more than 15$ since that LG/Philips screen is still produced, for various terminals or whatever.

So know that it's NOT the real cost for the parts of these. It's not even real market takes of rare things gaining value, it's really autism.

so in total that's a ~30$ computer I filled with a bunch of retro games.

it just don't have internet, I could cripple it with WIFI drivers and internet services running, but not the point.

also did I say It's really a pleasure to type on this thing? rRr~

OK so hear me out.

Our modern transitors work by etching a specific serires of shapes onto scilicon and the patterns of those shapes make transitors. IT is a uniform pattern. However there is no particular reason why we have to use 1 bit transitors. For example we could use a ternary design.

What I propose is that you have an AI have complete control of how it would be etched and reward the ai when the etching produces the proper output and punish the ai when it is the improper output. Also reward the ai when the output speeds up and uses less power etc. And I propose to you that Ai will not resort to transistors. Depending on the chip you are trying to design the ai will choose an amorphous blob/shape that is optimized precicely to move the electrons how you want without any logic gates and that it will be supra ultra low power

It doesn't burn itself out just because it's eating other organisms. If that was the case Earth would be a barren wasteland because life would've eaten itself long ago.

No, as long as the reproduction rate is higher than the consumption rate, on average, over time, then the quantity of organisms increases. The way it generally happens in practice is the simplest organisms feed themselves off the Sun's energy and mineral matter, and more complex organisms feed themselves off those, and so on.

The original organisms likely were too few to find and eat each other, so they only reproduced and fed off naturally or internally created molecules (possibly catalyzed by other molecules already inside).

If you model it with a regular language, you're doing it wrong. The laws of physics are Turing complete, so to model a physical process such as life you need a Turing complete grammar.

>But that complexity is still bounded by the processes that formed it.

The process that formed it are physical processes. The laws of physics are Turing complete (unless we get into digital physics, in which case you could consider an isolated area of the Universe a state machine, but that's beside the point).

>The best formal quantification of impossible complexity was provided in the video I linked of the chemist. This same person's response was to misquote and misparaphrase everything, and then to tear the strawmen down.

You're only sending a video rather than sending an article or expressing his ideas yourself because that way you can shut down any criticism by claiming strawman to anyone who doesn't fucking transcribe the video before criticizing it.

branches would still have to be defined for a program to handle input, unless the program's input was constant. a program with empty input is pretty dull.

otherwise, you're correct. all computer programs can be reduced to a hardware implementation which would probably be 1000x faster. But dedicated hardware, especially hardware for a computer program think of how big the pcb will be is ridiculously expensive. however, once this cost comes down we will see software programs being implemented in hardware

Some general rules are

>switch whenever you can, route only if you must

>minimize the number of physical devices

following these, yes, you should put all your end devices onto a single subnet, and if you wish to separate them into different subnets, use a L3 switch to route between the local subnets (using an access point connected to the switch for WiFi, preferably with PoE to avoid having to power them separately), using the router only as an edge device (firewall/NAT etc.) - in that case you would have an additional transfer subnet between the L3 switch and the router

>how does Microsoft subverting Linux and helping the NSA gather data help at all with the state of Israel

Their most prominent directors and financiers are elite jewish looking for world domination, by turning people into literally working-class cattle. They actively want to fullfill some mythical roles about Israel and so on.

Governments are on it because jews control most governments and because government profit from controlled and scared citizens (they are more obedient).

Microsoft contributes to these goals by being a bloated piece of shit which differs your data to MSF and from there to government agencies, at least by default (and not so by-default also).

You are probably too stupid right now to understand this, but keep searching and you will reach the same conclusions.

This has little to do with your regular jewish neighbour, you might think, and to an extent i agree but they instinctively pursue the same goals.

It's no secret that the most commonly used fonts in the world of PCs are either Arial and Calibri, or Liberation and Carlito (the FOSS alternatives).

I almost never saw anybody use any other fonts on their PCs other than OpenDyslexic (for obvious reasons), or whatever Linux Distros claim is their own superior version of the other.

That's where I ran into a lot of interesting discoveries while I've been digging through the world of Open Source Fonts. I found out there's an improved (and rarely used) Comic Sans superior alternative called Comic Neue, and that the Wikipedia Logo uses Linux Libertine, or GNU's Unifont and Google's Noto Font Projects (of which of both the goal is to support the entire UniCode database).

In short, for every proprietary font we use to type and read our keyboard, there's at least one Community Open-Source variety of it (sometimes better than the former).

Not to mention when I discovered software like FontForge:

https://fontforge.org/en-US/

And Google's own FOSS Font Collection:

https://fonts.google.com/

It got me thinking:

"What if we design our own font that can be used on not only this site, but as a feasible alternative for all PC variants. And if not, what are the best alternatives, and what is there to improve by our own contributions?"

Pretty interesting when you think about it for the moment...

I don't quite get what you're trying to say. Is this just a font thread? Or it's thread about fonts for GUIs? And no, making fonts is a too complicated task for unorganized team of amateurs. We could try to make a bitmap font though.

Anyway if it's a font thread, then Jetbrains Mono is quite nice.

Every single text editor sucks. They're all garbage and yet you just keep using it because you like the community around it. Admit it.

Either your text editor was designed before the potential of a GUI was realized, proprietary, or it's some soy laden faggotry that is "programmed" by embedding a fucking web browser sprinkled with JS shitware plugins.

Vim -- Shit configuration, the world outside of Vim isn't modal.

Emacs -- Silly key coords, tries to be an operating system. Newfags aren't impressed with LISP.

VS -- Browser faggotry (see above)

SublimeText -- Proprietary pseudo abandonware.

Atom -- Lol, so shit that its users ran to VS

Anything else out there isn't listed due to being too worthless to make my list. How do you cope with your shitty text editing lives /tech/?

text editors just keep me sharp. If i want to do work really quick i switch to an IDE but if i have time to spare i usually do everything with a text editor. I found that my code has gotten cleaner and i'm able to think better and more clear and i'm able to type faster with minimal mistakes.

Emacs LISP is indeed an subpar LISP, but it's still more of a joy to use as a language to develop plugins in than Python (Sublime), VimScript, or JS shit.
