I've been wanting more screen space and was wondering it was better to get a big fuck off monitor or multiple monitors. And if I get multiple where's the sweet spot?
How many /g/ays already lost a job because of Pajeet?

Post your fresh Ubuntu 16.04 desktop
Linux? Got no time for that.
Why are you using such a shitty resolution?
Are you running a VM?
What are effective approaches to securely cleaning up "permanently" deleted data on an SSD?

You have some shitty question about networking?
Ask it here!
OP here. i'll start
I've been playing with cisco routers these days and i managed to copy my running-config to tftp server that i installed at my home pc. Everything works perfect but it made me think,
What's the point of tftp server and startup-config on it for the router if my router is in blank state aka can't access anything?
Not Pajeet sir, no sir
Cantcp_try_undo_lossbe (wrongly) called in scenarios other than reordering. I don't really know the gory details in the Linux kerne;, but my best guess is that it discovers that it falsely triggered fast recovery when it receives the final DSACK, but can the same scenario be triggered in any way that is not because of reordering?
My sister wants to get a laptop for general facebooking. What manufacturer should she go for?

How incriminated / innocent are you?
Does encrypted container count? I have a 5gb container that has all my passwords for various sites and aervices.
Maybe some hardcore porn would surprise some I know. Other than that I'm good.

Every time I want to delete a node from a linked list. I pop the entire list to a buffer sequentially and then re-push it back in reverse minus one item.
How does that make you feel?
mac = Self Driven Car
pc = automatic car
lynix = manual car
So apparently submarines are capable of connecting to wide area networks from the sea.
I asked my cisco teacher how they do it and he couldn't tell me.
Does one guy have to get out and plug it in?
