I honestly can't tell if >>55264777 is mad or trolling.
Or maybe he sees things others can't.
I wrapped my Libreboot x200 in tin foil to keep the NSA from reading my files. I cut out openings for my GNU sticker and ThinkPad logo so people at my university can see that I support the GNU project and have a fine taste in hardware.
I'm concerned that the NSA's radio surveillance technology will be able to find its way into my laptop though these openings. Am I good to go, or should I make covers that I can remove when I want to show off?

What are you working on, /g/?
(From Last Thread)
I have to sort a singly linked list composed of words from the entirety of War and Peace. My sorting algorithm works but I need to do the sort in under 20 seconds and I am nowhere close to it. Can anyone give me any hints?
How come Graphic cards keep getting better but processors have seemed to reach their peak and are only getting better at a snails pace?
Because processors have been more focused on power efficiency in the last few years than highly improving performance. Also we're reaching the limits of what we can do on silicon.

Do any of you /g/uys build or buy and fly multirotors?
If you do show us your fleet and tell us what sort of flying you do, AP, FPV quad racing, freestyle acro or do you fly as part of your job doing inspections or something?
Personally, I brought one of these (https://bgobeyond.com/about/ of years ago and got interested enough to try building one myself.
So I built a naza quad with GPS in a hiro frame (http://www.gameofdrones.biz/shop/hiro-action-sports-airframe) I don't have any photos of thesc two because I'm not home right now.
Since then I've built a succession of smaller multirotors (pictured)for diffrent types of flying
From left to right they are for night flying, acro learing/crashing, a more portable acro/race spec quad and lastly a outdoor proximity flying/indoor quad.

Loving the new Model F, it feels fucking great. If it wasn't for the weird layout I'd consider using it as one of my main keyboards.
Always liked how your screens look on the desk, and nice big desk mat. I'm not an apple fan however, and as much as I like the feel of the original mechanical keyboards like these, I really can't get on with the layout or missing macros and basic media control etc. Lack of backlighting on them is also an issue for me as I really enjoy using my machines in total darkness.

Anyone know where I can find a beam spring?

I wish I had gone ahead and bought an official AC adapter. The SSD I got for $20 so I'm not too worried about it. Just need something to put an OS on that doesn't make any noise.
Seriously, give me a valid excuse to be using Windows in 2016. There are many better options available now.
If you want a career in Windows engineering, that's it.
In most IT workplaces I've been, Macbooks or linux laptops are used. In my current and previous programming role, macbooks were provided, linux laptops you're allowed to bring, but Windows is out of the question
Is gentoo really a meme? I installed it in a VM and while some things are cool (like eselect news, the stable branch of Gentoo, etc) the compile time is taking forever when I run emerge @world.
Does anyone here actually run Gentoo as their main OS on a laptop?
