Security + Privacy:
> uBlock Origin
> Blend In
> Other addons: Privacy Badger, uMatrix, RequestPolicy Continued
Extend browser capabilities
This anon almost got it right…
NoScript is obsolete - just use uMatrix instead.
Privacy Badger is redundant - you only need uBlock Origin.
RequestPolicy is redundant - you only need uBlock Origin.

Hello /g/ents, what are your favorite Linux Distro and also the ones you hate the most as well?
Did the Mac Mini cluster running 4chan go down again?
Money is ALWAYS an issue. For production machines, you could do worse. Depending on when this was built/purchased.
If this is >6 years old, you could match the computational power and throughput in 4u of dense nodes, but it wouldn't necessarily cost less

so what exactly causes mysql databases to shit themselves and say connection error or w/e the problem was?
Lots of things mon ami
MYSQL spawns a certain amount of children. These are estimated based on usuage. Its possible the server was overloaded for example
Perhaps a lock on an important table was never cleared
Or maybe some fag admin ran truncate (lel).
The point is, mysql, or mariahdb as 4chan uses is fucking complex.
Why is this meme language so popular?
(aside from rails)
It's a good language actually, its just too slow for anything worthwhile
Rails only became popular because it was a better framework than anything else at the time for writing a web app in, and because it had loads of "built-in" shit
It's been superseded by things like Go (with Gorilla) and Elixir (with Plug or Phoenix)
It's not meme though. Rails actually gives the language more of a bad reputation than a boost.
The language prioritizes flexibility, the principle of least surprise and programmer speed, over runtime performance or One True Style (python).
It makes it really easy to write good code quickly. Of course it might not be lighting fast, but it's usually far enough. They also made it easy to write good libraries in C, it you want to.
What's the deal with LLVM? Is it gonna replace GCC in our lifetime?
It says right here that you use Windows 10?
What do you have to say for yourself?

The memiest of all memes you've ever memeied.
The meme card.
RAID cards are worthless. Dedicated RAID controllers, on the other hand, are great - they have their own CPU and RAM to avoid the system resource usage you would see with a software RAID.
