Of course it will, airplanes are powered by jets which will greatly overcome any friction caused by the runway. The real question is whether it can take off before the wheels explode from the heat. For those not in the know, an airplanes wheels are free rolling and will not provide sufficient friction to prevent the jet engines overpowering them.

I've used this site to try to figure out what is the best VPN to use: https://thatoneprivacysite.net/

I feel that I need to choose a VPN in a non-Five, -Nine or -Fourteen Eyes country, and one of those that come up as seemingly cheapest and best is Trust.Zone (https://trust.zone/), but it seems they have no refund policy. However, competitors like NordVPN has bad reviews for not actually refunding, despite claiming that they always will within a month (video about it (3DPD warning: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D2282FnpuoE).

If anyone could give insight, or if I should choose something else, I'd be very thankful. I need this VPN very, very soon, so if you'd be able to help quickly, I'd very much appreciate it (I've kept procrastinating about it)...

And what do you know, turns out Nord VPN recently suffered a breach in their network. I stand by my assertion that unless you have a specific need (bypassing government or geo-restrictions), then using a VPN for day-to-day browsing is pointless.

This kind of blew my mind, the fact that something we built is out so far, even if it's just a probe from the 70's. I know it's slightly old news, but considering how long Voyager 1's been out there I don't think a week makes much of a difference.

If they are

we won't know for a long long looong time from now and it's probably irrelevant for us today

> in our galaxy and we detect them in the near future
we are totally fucked, as their first radio signals will reach us thousand years after they have broadcasted them, meaning they have a technological lead of their distance divided by lightspeed minus the few years we use radio signals

> in our galaxy and they detect us first
things will be interesting, as this is the only scenario contact to aliens could be as it is depicted in media with the slight difference that we are actually the far superior civilication

> in our galaxy and we receive their first radio signals from a distance that, devided by lightspeed, is approximately the time we use radio signals ourselves

Hm you might try compiling from source and see if that fixes it. Alternatively if there is indeed a bug you could try compiling with debug symbols if needed and stepping through with gdb (or just looking at the symbol dump) and seeing what's causing it to segfault.

Another option might just be to find where the preferences are stored (probably some dotfile in the home directory or near the binary path) and modifying that directly.

Actually I didn't check before posting because I thought the software died years ago but it got updated in June, my repos is lagging two versions behind. I compiled the new one the menu works fine now. According to dmesg it was a GTK problem.

Thanks anyways.

Every single chan with a tech or g board is filled to the brim with political threads about policies, corporate/government spying and muh freedoms.

Whatever a tech board can come up with will be small-scale shit which they might use on the side to feel cool and above the system, but will never replace the current infrastructure. It's happened before. There is an interesting project called safenet, but whenever that actually becomes open the public is a mystery.

Also, tor isn't a "separate internet". Unless you make a new network of individual computers, you aren't making a "new internet". If you do that though, it wont be useful to people outside of that mesh network.

How does /tc/ sort their files? Do you throw them all in New folder (62) or do you take the time to sort them nicely?

I keep maybe 1/4th of my animu photos sorted by series. In some cases I have special sub folders for characters such as the waifu, saber, ect. the rest get tossed into a big general folder that I keep telling myself I'll sort out someday knowing full well I never will.

My audio is a bit better sorted. It's not ideal but I have a music folder, and from there groups/artists. few exceptions being folders for game music, soundtrack stuff, ect I do have a small general folder of sorts for music but that's just from when my only hdd died and I had to rip my music off my ipod, and because of how poorly it was stored the files were given randomized names and placed in random folders.

Videos is pretty straightforward. anime/tv/movies/other. sub folders with series names.

Games is also pretty simple. It's mostly just sorted by system.

For pictures, I keep everything in one big "Pictures" folder. I rely on remembering when I save things and hopefully naming things properly to find them. For anime, movies, music, etc. I make folders and keep filling them until about 50 or so are in there and make a new one. I also rely on remembering when I saved things to remember where they are in this case. When I sort pictures by anime series or origin I feel like it makes it a lot harder to find. I did this once a few years back to my whole pictures folder, and later dumped everything back into one folder. Took a really long time too, not worth it, long as I can sort by modify date I'm good.

I mostly sort my files in videos, pictures, documents, music, games.
In pictures and videos, files are categorized as board and non-board names ex. g, b, a/[serie]/[char], Art. there are videos in pictures tough, mostly webms.

Overall it's still a big mess, some loose files, duplicate files, wrongly saved. Then there's also the issue of files that fit within multiple categories, files on other drives yet to be merged and not having the same organization. Windows doesn't allow paths with more than 256 characters so long filenames causes a problem, a temporary solution is zipping the file so it can be moved or using Teracopy.

Hydrus as >>1810 mentioned before is a solution to file organization, but it requires all the files in one big folder, I don't want to lose my folder structure so Hydrus won't be used. some images can get tags automatically by looking at MD5 of your picture and those on x-booru.

One program that's been helpful is Everything, say you save a file, put some tags in filename it's easy to find back and it's MUCH faster default windows search.

Do you guys find saving annoying too? Depending on the content I might have to jump to many different locations for each file. now THIS is a hassle. Maybe one big folder is not so bad after all?
>> No. 1854 [Edit]
>>1839
I have all my programs set to automatically download into one one big ingress folder and then organize from there. It's ugly but it's easier so long as you keep on top of shoving things into their appropriate places every few days. One trick is using temporary folders to group items as they come in. Say you're saving Touhou fanart. Clear out the base of ingress so only folders remain and let them all save there. Then when you finish drag them into a new folder so they don't mix with anything else. Even if you want to sort further (by character) it's still much easier than having to sit there and separate hundreds of pictures based on series which I find is usually the slowest part. And you can make other groups too like funny, infograph, etc depending on your needs and what you're saving.

The vertical mice as seen in your image are supposed to be pretty ergonomic. I haven't had a chance to try them but I really want to.

The recessed ergonomic keyboards are another thing that's supposed to be really ergonomic but looks a bit funky at first glance.

Unless you constrain that to unusual and useful/functional, you'll find a lot of stuff made from shitty ideas that failed for clear and deservedly obvious reasons.

As for one that I thought was weird, but turned out to be immensely useful: the horizontal scroll wheel on a madcatz RAT mouse.
I just wish the quality of the mouse matched the price tag, because it was very hard to learn to live without it when I switched to a more normal mouse that would last longer than year before it starts to fail.

If you voluntarily surrender information to someone you don't have any reason to trust and then it turns out that they were lying about why they wanted the information and they plan on abusing it, who is to blame? The people who get into positions of power are awful people, you were taught that from a young age. "Power corrupts" remember that?
If you go out for a walk into the swamp in the evening on a warm day in May and the mosquitos go wild on you because you didn't put on any repellent whos at fault? You can't blame a bloodsucker for trying to suck your blood and you can't blame corrupt authoritarian animals for abusing power, they're both things you're expected to be away of and protect yourself from.
They can't sell your data if they don't have it. As long as they never get mine they'll never be able to genetically modify a superior being because I'm the prototype of perfection.

also here, have a photo of a cute cat to manipulate your feelings and make you feel bad about blocking the ads. Please think of the kittens!

I've been wanting to try programming or game making for a while now but I don't know where to start. I have a vague idea of what I want to make. Ideally, something like a point and click adventure game but rather than having an inventory it'd be more about how your actions affect the things around them. If you've ever played ghost trick I wanted to make something like that. I really enjoyed that games puzzles and I liked how a scene was being played out as you solved them.

But trying to emulate that kind of gameplay is too ambitious for a first try so maybe something closer to "I wish I were the moon" http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/461959

Making video games is difficult and learning any language is extremely tedious. The software I write nearly every day is what most people, myself included, would consider boring and the tedium is absolutely inescapable. It will more than likely take great resolve to do anything you have in mind today.

If you decide to program it yourself you should learn java and get comfortable with that. Java is a fine language for beginners and teaches useful OO concepts.

Assembly and Python are also excellent starting points for beginners, Python will teach almost everything a beginner should learn. It's easy to use and would make a great stepping stone if you want to later use a language like C/C++/Java. Python is great in and of its self and you can stick with it. Assembly takes a bit of effort to learn, but it's still by far the best way to really get to grips with programming, but I still recommend it less than Python and Java.

If you decide you aren't tough enough and programming is not for you, there are things like Wintermute Engine and Visionaire Studio that will let you make your game with little or no programming knowledge. They're really easy to use, so I hear, and they would suit someone with not so much time to invest in a hobby.

>Ideally, something like a point and click adventure game but rather than having an inventory it'd be more about how your actions affect the things around them.

That is a point and click adventure game.
