My trusty PoS office chair is falling apart, and this time I'd like to get something that'll last. I'm 6'4, 200lbs and both work and play in my chair, so I'm looking for something comfy, durable and preferably with removable arms, though I could always hack them off myself.
General chair recc thread.
I got this Dauphin chair, super sturdy, heavy and adjustable, it's meant for office use so necessarily sofa-like comfy for the evenings if you plan to use it that way
Can be found used on Ebay for around 200-300€ I think
macfags actually believe this

How shit are universal laptop chargers?
My laptop is out of warranty, it's an asus and so far it's still based even after 3 years. However the laptop charger is starting to die, it only charges if the cable is placed in a specific way else you have to wiggle it so it start charging back.
Are universal chargers as shitty as they look, will it affect the internal electronic components of the laptop, what's your experience with them
why don't you just get a replacement charger for your specific laptop model? either oem or third-party? third party manufacturers just match the voltage and amperage of your laptop and produce chargers that match those exact voltages and amperages, it's guaranteed to work, and simpler than making sure the universal one has a range of volts/amps that your laptop accepts.
How hard would it be to write a program that creates a drive like Truecrypt does? I want to make a program to create a RAID0 drive from a bunch of files because Microsoft is a bunch of faggots and they disabled dynamic abilities from the native VHD mount.
>I want to make a program to create a RAID0 drive from a bunch of files because Microsoft is a bunch of faggots and they disabled dynamic abilities from the native VHD mount.
stop being retarded.
if you can't resolve that problem properly, you sure as shit can't write your own truecrypt.
Is there any benefit to running Mediagoblin on my server as opposed to putting everything into basic HTML pages, and if so, would those benefits be nontrivial to implement for someone with beginner webdev experience?
owned an iPhone once, nice gimmick not functional as i'd like it, love Ulysses though.
I use my cellphone for mail and keep contact with my students, i'm a Uni professor. My 13 year old niece told me to ask here because you "are pretty based" hahaha.
Does it matter how thin a phone is when it fucking turns off before the morning is over??
Blackberry Passport user here. I get a day and a half of pretty frequent use out of this bad boy. I can't kill it in a day, unless I really try.
Yeah, it's a fatty, but it is nice not to be a wall hugger.
why not spend that extra space in the internals saved from shrinking components on some fuckhuge 4000mah batteries
camera bumps is the ugliest shit in the universe and a sign of compromised design anyways so just raise the thickness to that of the bump and fill it with delicious acid
What is the state of computing in Japan? How big is their market for software engineers?
Which Linux distro do normalfags use?
So I have a strix Asus gaming laptop, 12gb ram, nividia gtx 970m, Intel i7 duel core 2.6ghz. The one problem I have though is when I play games like miscreated or other games on ultra settings my laptop gets hot, the cpu is usually 60-80°f and the gpu is about the same but a little higher. Is this bad or is it normal ? The games run at perfect frames even on high just my temps get high. Should I be worried and try to keep my temps at a lower rate while gaming?
High temps are normal for laptops while under load, especially if they have beefy specs. Also you mean Celsius though right? 80 is fine, up to 90 is too. Both your CPU and GPU has technology that, once when too hot, it will throttle itself to use less power, thus generate less heat. So you're fine.
If you use the laptop on your lap, or on a surface that could suffocate air intakes under it (i.e. bed), I recommend getting something to have between what the laptop sits on and the laptop, i.e. a cooling...

How important is a curved screen on a 21:9 monitor?
This is an interesting idea/project I saw on 4chan + 4 (can’t say the site’s name or my shit will be “spam”)
“I've chewed on this idea ever since someone brought it up on /pol/ more than a year ago. He called it Secession from the Internet. The idea was to build an entirely new decentralized Internet from scratch, and the discussion turned to meshnets & pirateboxes and some more exotic solutions. Of course all of it was completely out of reach of the average person to take part in so it was really just a four-week long circle-jerk.
But I obsessed over it. I couldn't stop thinking about how to make it happen, and my OCD led me to the exact same conclusion that smarter fuckers than me have already come to:
"We don't have a technology problem; we have a social problem."
This needs to be something that a broad range of people can participate in which appeals to their own interests. Not some grand scheme of decentralizing the web. It needs to build on itself in such a way that it naturally leads to a decentralized Internet. And since powers that be aren't going to like it, it's also going to mean breaking rules and going back to some old school ways of doing things. That's inevitable. Internet freedom will not be legal.
Boards like >>>/killcen/ and >>>/eternalarchive/ are on the same track as what I'm thinking about, but I have a broader scope in mind than just archiving stuff to prevent censorship. Instead, we copy EVERYTHING. Youtube channels, blogs, podcasts, image galleries, wikis, porn. Whatever YOU like on the Internet, scrape it all to your harddrive. Store it in an organized format that a webmaster could easily import into their own eepsite on i2p or something.
Next, join up with informal networks of people. People on the chans (http://www.allchans.org), people on IRC, and share.” (1)
(2) Or do the same thing as boards like /killcen/ and set up accounts on mediafire, but don't rely exclusively on those. The idea is to create informal networks of people, not to rely on specific technology. The content that you scrape and share is the raw material for building these networks.If you have web design skills then start setting up onion sites, eepsites, zeronet sites, etc built from content that you've scraped from the Internet. I'm talking about raw, unapologetic piracy. We cannibalize...
