I want to daily Linux on my laptop but the bullshit 4K display is fuck I hate it. I'm just going to buy a laptop with a reasonable display rather thank fall // than fall for the HiDPI display meme again
It's bullshit
I can't see anything without scaling everything 200% in Windows, and even then some programs don't respect my scaling preference

I've considered doing similar (bc I have a thumb drive that also goes well on a chain I have), but I don't know what I'd put on it. All the machines I use tend to have my preferred tools and I have a laptop even if they didn't. What kind of stuff do you put on it, schizoid?

I have a live-iso of a Linux distro on mine; it's one of those persistent installs too so I can keep my PGP keys on an encrpyted partition on there. I also have a plan to install one-half of an encryption keyfile in a file on there. That way I can plug it into a computer that has the other half-key and unlock an encrypted volume on that PC without ever typing in the password.

An additional benefit of the half-key approach I'm working on is that if (when) the party van comes I can just pull out the USB and have the computer erase its own copy of the half-key. Then the fed only has one half of an encryption key which doesn't do much good.

Also my passwords are between 10 and 30 characters and I only remeber them by muscle memory. If you ask me what my password is I honestly couldn't tell you, I'd have to type it out and read it: even then I probably couldn't do that under duress.

I added this little Lightning emblem on it recently and upgraded to a thicker cord that let me tie a few cute figure-8 knots in it.

First of all, I should point out the site news; check it out for the latest news about what I'm doing with the imageboard.

Second, I've just heard that my favorite anime Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka is getting an OVA this spring (2019) and a third season the next year (2020). I am overjoyed to hear this and simply cannot express my thoughts on it until my excitement has died down. I hope to at least watch the OVA with you all soon. Gochiusa is simply a masterpiece (see: girls, coffee, fluffy rabbits) and I hope we can share this excitement together.

And perhaps most trivially I'd like to draw your attention to the new software we are running on the site; I wrote a Perl script to convert from the old software (Doushio) to the new software (modded Wakaba) while I was almost falling asleep in ECE306 on Tuesday: these things about the new software will impact you the most:

I hope that we can grow our community even larger just by having implemented these simple changes. Don't forget: if you have any feedback, as always feel free to e-mail me at yumi@prettyboytellem.com! And most importantly:

Kick back and take it easy, NCSU

All the frowners gotta remember that matters of philosophy, while they may have bearing on matters of politics, are not political banter. Political banter is more like ""...POLITICAL NAME DROP...GEOPOLITICS...RACE BAITING...".

Can any cryptocurrency/blockchain enthusiasts help me with a question I have? I don't feel like asking /g/ or /sci/.
I dont know that much about it and am trying to get my head around some of it.

Chainlink is supposed to act as an Oracle, which maintains all of the bookkeeping between series of blockchains, correct?
If each LINK attached to each a data unit is permanently indebted with that information, wont there be some kind of cap on how much information an oracle could keep track or is there just a fuck huge amount of them? And how much data could one of them hold? Is there a term for this specific thing?
And what would stop someone form looking at Chainlink's code and just making a copy of it as their own oracle? And can oracles connect with other oracles?

software's cool but I couldn't see it leading to much opportunity that I'd like... the biggest development I could see is becoming a team leader
can't say I'd be a really good software team-lead; I would be much more comfortable writing my own slice of a program than designing the whole thing [spoiler]because I think I could do it better[spoiler]even if that's not a good idea to hang on to[/spoiler][/spoiler]

1. If you like to code, life is pretty easy as a software engineer.
2. The hours are typically 40 hours / week and sometimes 50 hours. You make the deadlines.
3. Yea, it's 100% coding or talking about what you are going to code. Not much time is spent managing others unless you are a lead.
4. Software "engineer" that codes most of the time, but spends a lot of time "planning," "scoping out," and so on.
5. Yea, higher level management must be able to clear 250k if they have me at this rate.
6. Not in California.

Added chart for reference. It is a little behind the times for this market.

You don't need to manage others or think too much about the whole system when you start. You just get a few components to work on. It's pretty stress-free right now.

Hey, I got one o' them there inquiries. FLanon here. sorry to blogpost, but literally the whole reason I came here was to have my MA pay // who cares, basically I can't do what I planned and have to change career plans p much entirely. What kinda jobs can a cunning linguist like myself get iffn I were to learn how to speak computer // learn how to code, &c.?
>> No.9077  
Well, you may very well be uniquely qualified to be involved with Natural Language Processing work.
Basically voice to text, idk if that ship has sailed already or what have you, but a linguistics perspective would probably be helpful?
But beyond voice to text, there's also sentiment analysis and attempts to systematically derive meaning from plain text. But idk if that needs anything more than just familiarity with the language, ya feel?
I'm also not a comp sci guy, so like what do I know. The IAA here at State is a very good program if your primary goal is make hella bank, yo. I'm not sure how easy it is to enter it from unrelated fields, but like it's pretty cost effective, ya feel?
