So I have just installed arch. I am unsure as to what DE I should use though... I am neutral to GNOME 3, I think Xfce is a little plain and I have a beefy enough system to where performance is not an issue, I love KDE, but can't use it because of the god awful ibus support. LXDE looks nice, but I would rather use Xfce. And Cinnamon is just meh... (Plus terrible compatibility with non-mint distros in my experience...)
Also, what are your must have settings/tweaks/applications?

Engineering software is not a true engineering field, buddy. I hate to break it to you but listening to a clients needs, requirements and limitations, using conventions and providing a team of code monkeys with those tools is NOT something you need a degree to have competence in.
Coding and design conventions that the real world uses can be found in any Ivor Horton programming book these days. All of the skills and large scale projects can be read about in a week or less and can be practically applied in that same time.

Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
you're an idiot. CS isn't about programming it's about the theory of computing in its entirety. just because you only did a bachelors because you wanted a job and couldn't handle graduate school doesn't mean you can project like an autist. it's pathetic.
Do you remember when they made a selling point out of 'other os' function and then removed it with a system update. They do deserve to die for false advertisement. Now they manufacture a phone with 4k display that is not really 4k all the time, it turns on only in gallery. Not to mention how shit their vaio laptops were. Sony is kil and they struggle to understand why

What is /g/'s take on this show?
Also, what desktop do you use?
My dad is throwing a fit because he can't install his "XP" copy of AOL on his new dell with windows 10.
I set up his outlook application to receive email (he used to use it only for the calendar) and I set the "mail received" tone to the "YOU'VE GOT MAIL" sound.
He is pissed off now that he figured out that I just setup outlook, which is "software he doesn't know how to use," and he "wants AOL back, [since he] knows how it works."
>says he knows how it works
>can't even install it
Your father sounds like a fucking ape.
Leave him to it and let him get in a mess and start flinging shit. Eventually he will come to you to sort it out, you sort it out properly and tell him to get used to it because it's not 2001 any more.
I dare ya!
Post your builds, tips, and experiences
>time warner raising modem rental fee to $10/mo
Anyways, at this point it seems like a stuipidity tax to keep renting a modem from them. What does /g/ recommend as far as cable modems go? Right now the highest speed tier available to me is 50mbps but the cableco is promising 100mbps+ speeds within the next couple years so I don't want to buy something obsolete

Why aren't you using a phone that respects your freedom yet?
Also freedom respecting phones thread
No such thing as a phone that protects your freedom, in the US the airwaves are owned by the public, so if you can find a way to listen in on calls or texts without tapping into cell towers or other tapping method its legal
So i've been looking for a cheap (price and electricity cost) small server for home use of MariaDB (MySQL's better sister).
By cheap i mean somewhere in the ballpark of $300.
At first i thought about
HP ProLiant MicroServer G7 N54L
It is small, very power efficient, has ECC memory but pretty crappy processor.
And it made me think, although in enterprise solutions processor usually isn't a bottleneck in DB applications, however all those microsevers (which IMO are more suited for NAS) have crappy CPUs. I cannot find any realiabale data or benchmarks of those low power CPUs, taking into account DB workloads.
So i searched for aftermarket servers and found HP DL365 and HP DL80. They cost pretty much the same as N54L, have more RAM and better CPU. With those i wouln't be concerned about CPU bottlenecking it, but they crave power and require SAS drives (which are expensive, especially SSDs).
So, even that N54L is a bit more expensive than those used servers and have nicer form factor for a home use (i'd put it in my closet) i'm stil afraid that CPU woud become bottleneck.
Important thing, it's not some idle DB, it is set of 40 InnoDB tables, totalling 180GiB. On average 200 inserts/s, 40 updates/s, 5 deletes/s, everything transactional, averaging 5 operations per transaction, taking no more than 3 seconds each trx. Currently i run this DB on Pentium D 2.66GHz (two cores), 16GiB of RAM, RAID0 (speed) HDDs with daily backups. Pretty old stuff and DB servers aint going past 25% of CPU, but dont know how it would scale to that lower power one from N54L.
Also i don't want to top this servers CPU resources with DB, as this machine does other things too.
I need good, reliable, low cost, low power server for heavy MariaDB workloads.
That's the smallest cloud package available at nearby providers.

Any rumors or rumblings about monitors at CES 2016? Was going to pick up pic related, the u2715h, but I figured that I should wait since we're a week away from CES.
Also /display/monitor general I guess.
I think I'm going to get a U2515H as my first monitor for that sweet pixel density. if I wait around for a couple months I should be able to catch a price drop, right?
