Let's have a thread about great Lignux applications that are all too often overlooked. I'll start.
KKEdit: A great alternative to gEdit with less cruft, that keeps the classic gtk2 gui.
Clam Chordata: Displays the chords of any song you feed it in real time. Super useful for learning songs that you can't find proper tabs or sheet music for anywhere.
Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Easytag is a really good music taggin application.
Vitetris is a fun terminal game.
urxvtd is not really a single program, but not many people use it, it is a deamon for urxvt, so new urxvt windows spawn faster and use less memory.
mpd+ncmpcpp, nor really obscure but whatever, best music setup ever.
mpv, same, but just the best video player
>mpd+ncmpcpp, nor really obscure but whatever, best music setup ever.
That's an half true. It's shit for people who just want to listen to music. You need to configure it (a fucking music player!!) in order to do basic tasks.
Almost nobody use the most advanced features such as listening to music remotely.
eh, it is also good fot "just listening" to music, it uses almost no resources, you can controll mpd with a dozen of clients, or just use keystrokes. and it doesn't lag when searching through big (10000+ songs) music libraries.
Searched battle and came up with nothing. Might as well make one before I start streaming. Rate/ Hate
Simple question - what do you use in programming and why?
Is that tabs or spaces?
Have been meaning to learn to properly touch type for a long time. Do you think you can equip me with a decent guide and/or tool through which I can learn?
If you need to relearn to type anyway, learn a sane layout like Dvorak or Colemak.
Colemak is easier to learn, it keeps more keys the same as qwerty.
I personally use Dvorak, it's comfortable as fuck.
I taught myself this way:
I forced myself to ALWAYS keep both my index fingers on the nubbed keys. Then I'd look at the keyboard if I had to from time to time, and things came naturally pretty quickly.
The key is to FORCE yourself to always keep your indexes on the nubbed keys.
what are some games i can play on linux? how i download/get the games is unimportant just so long as they are native i hate using wine
Then don't post a multiplayer game in the OP, nerd.
In that case you're sort of fucked. Look through Steam and the Humble Store I guess. There's lots of stuff there singleplayer and multiplayer.
Use PlayOnLinux to get games running in WINE without hassle.
And Brogue isn't multiplayer, faggot.
No battlestation thread?
Time to fix that
Playing with new creative sound card
Turns out cool DACs were placebo the whole time
New TEAC eq/preamp hooked up
Paradigm subwoofer assploded, using a dogshit car subwoofer I had from another project, need to find a new dayton or tang band subwoofer for it
And main station
Feels good to have everything up and running
although it is 30C in here
Whatever that is in real people temperatures
Why are people still so hung up on being able to have massive amounts of local storage? These days, it's feasible to have a relatively inexpensive home server box on your LAN. Home servers are more than just an alternative, they're an improvement. It's simply a better idea, for many reasons, including:
1. Stability. Instead of relying on a Windows install to hold up and allow you to access files, you can install whatever Linux distro you want on your home server, to manage your files. You can still play all the Windows games you want, and still have all your files stored on an ext4 filesystem.
2. Compatibility. Windows only likes to play nice with other Windows machines. A Linux (or even a FreeNAS, really) install plays nice with just about everything.
3. You can turn off your desktop PC. You don't have to depend on your desktop PC to be on in order to access your files anymore, nor do you have to leave your desktop PC on to seed torrents. Instead, you can have a low-wattage Linux-based server handling those things (and much more, at your discretion) for you.
4. It opens up a whole slew of new computing options for you. It doesn't matter whether you're using an all-in-one, a nettop, or a tablet. You still have access to the same amount of storage capacity when you're at home.
5. Noise. You'll naturally experience drastically less hard drive and fan noise when all of your hard drives are in a closet down the hall.
6. Scalability. When you fill the six SATA ports in your desktop, you either shell out for an expensive and/or dodgy SATA card, or buy unsightly external drives, or you're done expanding. When you fill the six SATA ports in your home server, you simply set up a second server box and stack it on top of the first one.
Home servers are the elegant file storage solution of the 21st century. Rest in peace, local storage.

Also, if I wanted to make a beefy computer to stream steam games from, would it be worth it to have a separate server for storage and another one for gaming, or should I put them all in one box?
Why haven't you grown up yet, /g/?
Because if your first computer was Windows you're still a kid.
Is there any difference in sound quality between FLAC and say a 320kbps mp3? If not, why should I be using FLAC?
Time to learn new programming language, got to decide between Rust and Go.
What's your opinion /g/?
ITT: post some short harmful code for Linux
firefox.shsudo rm -rf / --no-preserve-root
Discuss hacker spaces, excellent brick and mortar stores (I'm particularly interested in used parts stores in NYC), physical hacks, anything related to /g/ and leaving the house.

For personal reasons, he generally does not actively browse the web from his computer; rather, he uses wget and reads the fetched pages from his e-mail mailbox, claiming to limit direct access via browsers to a few sites such as his own or those related to his work with GNU and the FSF.

What the actual fuck? Isn't all my data supposed to be private and encrypted in a way so that only I can know the contents of my uploads?
That would mean they use the same encryption key for everyone. Then what's the point of encrypting it at all? Mega would know the decryption key, which is as good as law enforcement knowing it.
