is 120gb SSD enough space or should I spend the extra for 240
I have a bit of a headitcher here, /g/. A laptop with no usb ports (all are broken), no cd reader and a Windows install with two accounts. I only have access to the "normal" account, not the admin account.
How can I reinstall Windows on this machine?
>writing the whole page in JS
Don't like it, don't download it :^) stop being so entitled.
I don't like installing the JVM so I don't use Java programs. But I don't whine that they didn't write in my preferred language.
What's the cheapest I could go for building a NAS/Plex server?
Currently running it off my PC, but I don't want to have it on all the time due to power usage concerns.
I just want to get something small and compact that could house 2-4 hard drives and have just enough power for transcoding videos on the fly.
Would NUCs be enough, or would I need to go for a full PC build?
according to plex, you need something that scores higher than 2000 on cpubenchmarks in order to stream 1080p smoothly.
i have an old hp mediasmart server ex485 upgraded to an intel q9550s and it has been working well so far. the only reason i have the server is cuz i got it for 50 bucks. anyway, pretty much any core i series should be more than enough for plex streaming. shitty laptop from 2012 with an i5 or even as low as an i3 should work.
Specifically I need a good book for networking. Everything I can get protocols OSI model whatever.
This is what I used in school, it was pretty good but verbose.
Computer Networking - A Top Down Approach
What's the best VPN? No-log preferably.
Is 25 inches too small for a 1440p monitor?
Thinking about getting pic related since it's the best priced 1440p monitor i can find but i'm not sure about the size.
i currently have a 27" 1080p
What is /g/'s opinion of Computer Information Systems? I'm currently a CS major, but I am having issues in my calculus classes.
Would switching be a mistake?
CIS is, at least at my uni a part of the business school and isn't even close to a real cs degree. They spend alot of time mucking about with js, sql, and even excel.
Switching would be a huge mistake if you at all value having a career you want to wake to in the morning.
You realize IS is basically IT just with other stuff like basic programming and business management thrown in, right? At least that's how it is at my school unless you take the extra programming electives. I'm in it for the networking though because I don't care for programming much. We have to take calc too though, I don't know about you.
It's not for you if you want to program. It's good for Networking and Security if your school offers those subjects in the curriculum.
I don't get why current VR isn't focused on being thin and lightweight.
A fucking phone 10cm away from the face breaks all immersion and looks fucking dumb. Why can't samsung put their bendable OLED displays in to something pic related?
>That feeling when forced into using Windows because it's the only OS that supports Autodesk and Adobe.
What other software does /g use because of this kind of bs?
I use Elementary OS on my other devices but for my workstation it's Wincuk all the way. Would go full linux if not for the need.
Hey /g/, guess what's in the box ? :D
I live in the EU and I am looking for a site to buy my computer-related shit from that is cheap, and ships across the EU.
Preferably, from countries in the Eurozone. Unless it's Polish.Also, it must have english as an optional language.
Also, no UK sites (pound is expensive)
>tfw hardwareversand shut down and is now some other shit.
>tfw your country charges you 15% of item value on items over 50 euros
Ill never get my pc for cheap
Security is a myth. Anything is hackable. Busses, trains, cars, planes etc all run on proprietary software and you're a hypocrite if you use them but tell others not to hse proprietary software to get their work done.
