got a question for you university student anons of /g/
how do you guys use and access Steam's desktop client without using a vpn when Steam's desktop client ports are blocked?
I don't think it's fried, but maybe it is.
I had this laptop about 3-4 years ago and when I set it down, my screen froze. I let it sit for a while and it didn't change so I had to turn it off manually. When I turned it back on, it wasn't working and I had to go into some screen. It said my hdd wasn't connected or something but i opened the bottom of my laptop and it was there. some boards said I had to install windows again or get a new hdd. I already have a new laptop and I was wondering if it was possible to move all of the contents (implying it still has all of the files) into a usb or something? Like can I take it to the shop and they can move all of the stuff into a new portable harddrive I can buy?
Also do you think thhe repairers would look at my files. I'm pretty sure I have a lot of porn on there.
Is it worth it to switch to Devuan or is it some pussy nigga shit?
Any other non-systemd options?
What cheap Chinese shit have you bought, and would you recommend it?
Yes, we know everything is already from China but in here we discuss the no/low-name cheap shit you see on eBay, AliExpress, Gearbest and similar sites.

Morning, /g/entlemen. I was hoping you guys could help me out. I'm looking for decent encryption and file shredding software for Linux. I keep a lot of tax documents and other personal stuff on an external drive and I would like to be able to encrypt it, as well as be able to properly destroy it once its outlived its usefulness. Google hasn't really been of any help here.
I would like to find something capable of producing hidden volumes like Truecrypt was, and ideally I'd like to be able to program the shredder to shred the drive if the wrong password...

Hello fellow GNU/Linux users. I've been using Gentoo Linux since July because I didn't want to be part of Microsoft's botnet of spying. I have made a straw poll to collect the reasons why people are not using Windows 10. In addition to answering the poll's question, state your devices and operating systems below. Please give the details of the reason in your post.
Desktop - Gentoo
Laptop - Gentoo
Netbook - Debian GNU/Hurd
Smartphone - Replicant
Tablet - Replicant
Server - Debian stable
I was pretty outraged by the Snowden revelations and PRISM, so I ditched all my proprietary software and only use stuff that I can audit myself from now on. FSF approval also doesn't hurt.
Here's the poll:
I just came to realize Jesus is a paradox and therefore he isn't coming but he is a possible paradox.
Which distro should I install for this feeling?
Music for this thread:
I just removed all the shitty default apps from Windows 10.
Which software should I use instead of the Photos app? I don't really like Irfanview.
>Nvidia is ready to announce its Maxwell-based Pascal graphics cards at Computex 2016 from May 31-June 4, with graphics card players including Asustek Computer, Gigabyte Technology and Micro-Star International (MSI) showcasing their reference board products, according to sources from graphics card players.
if Stallman is so much pro freedom why doesn't he crack denuvo and other drm? I mean he wrote the best compiler and userland in the world, it shouldn't be hard for him r-right g-guys?
Logically, it wouldn't really make sense for him to do. Cracking the DRM to a software doesn't make it fully liberated, it just becomes easier to access. It would essentially be him encouraging use of proprietary software.
I don't understand this software development shit.
How the fuck does one go around making a marketable program?
I mean, how do you make the front-end of the program interact with the back-end? Everything I've learned is only used in the Command Prompt. Just logic.
Where do I go from here, /g/?
This shit any good?
>Soon, micropayments and better ads will give users and publishers a better deal.
Any programmers out there believe AI is possible? I'm still pretty amateur but from what I learned it seems every outcome comes from some preprogrammed set of instructional code.
So I helped a friend move and offered to recycle his old towers. Haven't built a computer since 2004, decided to rummage through and see if there was anything worth keeping. In the end, I have a comp with:
-AMD Phenom II X3 710 2.6 GHz
-Geforce GTX 460
-5 GB RAM
I only have a Chromebook and smartphone, otherwise. Is this a decent rig for games? I'm waaay out of the loop on what games require these days.
>does it run smooth?
It's decent for your gaming needs.
It's not decent for your gaming needs.
It'll do just fine on the casual games. You can try unlocking that extra core. Google it.

Also, the power and magic of Haskell doesn't come from the fact that it's functional (alone), it comes from its type system.
AKA “Make your imperative languages as functional as you want, without a good type system they'll still be useful.”
pretty nice to see someone who isn't bashing FP
I ask around /dpt/ and they always say Haskell is a meme language and that Ocaml is better, and that I shouldn't continue with FP because I won't get a job.
Gets tiring after a while.
