>linux doesn't have many games
1- It has, now.
2- Most of the ones it doesn't have can be run through Wine.
>> No. 1180 [Edit]
Only 1 of the games I regularly play are linux compatible and I'm not interested in Super Tux Kart or wasting an hour configuring wine to have the game run at 15 frames per second.

Debian stable, nowadays. I used to use Arch, but systemd and various other shit came along with a steady downturn in general, so I jumped ship to one of the only remaining (at the time) options in Debian. Howewer, a few months after that, Debian made the decision to eventually switch to systemd as well, so I'm not sure where to run once the current stable release becomes obsolete.

Realistically you don't encounter many OS level bugs these days unless you're doing something weird, yes.
I have an idealized image from what I've heard of live-hackable Lisp and Smalltalk machines of a system where the source for everything is easy to bring up and understand and modify. Obviously not even OpenBSD fits that bill, anything that simple would be a toy OS unfit for normal use. But it's nice to daydream about, I suppose.

It's funny how this thing (LHC) cost well over 10 billion US dollars. Meanwhile, the economies and political systems across Europe are crumbling into pieces.

This better be worth it.
>> No. 999 [Edit]
10 billion US dollars is nothing compared to the money wasted on fighting a pointless war we can't afford.
but since when did the united states or it's people stop buying shit while in massive debt?
>> No. 1000 [Edit]
Shit I'd much rather that money spent on scientific research than dumb things like giving free money to leeches or fighting wars.
>> No. 1001 [Edit]
The short answer is yes. Its worth it

Economies rise and fall regardless if you fund science, you have better staying power if you do invest in future technology though. The countries that don't will fade

Anyone else into hacking embedded devices? I picked up a Linksys WRT54GL earlier this week, and I plan on soldering a JTAG cable together, installing a serial port, and maybe a fan. I've also got to order another 9dbi antenna and get the B.A.T.M.A.N. protocol working since I want to make this into a mesh network node. There's tons of shit that becomes possible after you hack your router though (e.g. personal VPN, dedicated seed box, additional layer of security with iptables, etc.). OpenWRT has thousands of applications. I fucking love it, but I wouldn't mind giving FairuzaWRT a try.

Also, here is a book on hacking the WRT54G series if it interests anyone else.

Never throw hardware away. I have the exact same model with DD-WRT acting as a switch because I ran out of ethernet ports on my main router. You can at least turn it into a wireless adapter for a game console.

Main router is an Asus WL-500W, modded to host the contents of my set top box hard drive via ftp.

I want to run a Tor-ifying router/middlebox in my home but I do not know where to start,what router is recommended for this ? Any good guides?

German Government Warns Key Entities Not To Use Windows 8 – Links The NSA

Does anyone have a tablet computer? I was interested in buying one for reading manga and stuff.

I want to avoid anything iPad related obviously. I was maybe thinking of the ExoPC; it looks pretty good and runs on Win 7. Only, the hardware is just about to become obsolete in regards to tablets so I wasn't sure. Check it out here:

Please restrain from any comments like "buy a netbook" cause I already have one. I just want a tablet computer, because it reminds me of Star Trek compads from when I was growing up~

>A tablet out of Google’s Nexus program has been rumored to launch for quite a while, and the consensus is that it is going to be announced at this year’s Google I/O between June 27 and June 29. An unnamed Asus representative confirmed to Android Authority at Computex this week that Asus and Google partnered to manufacturer the 7-inch tablet. It will be announced by the end of June. With that time frame, Google I/O sounds like the most likely place that the Nexus tablet will be announced.

>The representative was not able to offer any information on pricing or specs but said the tablet is going to be “awesome.” The Nexus tablet has been rumored to cost between $150 and $200 to compete with Amazon’s $199 Kindle Fire that now has more than half of the Android tablet market share.

Maybe I'll have to buy a tablet... It'd be great for watching anime in bed, and if it ran Windows 8 I could plug in a keyboard and mouse for a casual game of DOTA every once in a while.

I finally got a tablet but more so I could use it to communicate (deaf).

Had a hard time picking from anything that was not an iPad and was not shit. The best I could get here was an Archos running Android (gonna mess around with that). I got the 1.5GHz version.

Over all, they're really not that useful. I'm able to use it for what I need and it's nice for manga, but apart from that you could just use a PSP or other small device for most things.

Lets start a game where we try to answer a science question, and also think up other questions. The aim is to make a question that the average untrained but curious tohnochanner can think about and also have a bit of fun discussing things. Try not to make questions which require too much specialised technical knowledge. Also note this is not just a place to get your homework questions answered.

First question: from an evolutionary point of view, is it possible for a species of parasite to completely wipe out its host species?

When you're boiling water, why do bubbles form before the water reaches boiling temperature?
>> No. 940 [Edit]

below boiling point, the water can evaporate and form bubbles because the pressure on the liquid is almost equal to the vapor pressure, while we say the water is at it's boiling point when the bulk of the water forms vapor bubbles

Dolls like this are going for something like $600, minus the clothes.

I would buy one, but it seems difficult. I found these on a forum dedicated to dolls.

Not really worth the money. Its just a massive, heavy masturbation aid which I'd have no emotional attachment to, and probably get bored of really quickly. The mental bit is probably the most important when fapping and I'd rather just spend my time trying to find some media I really like. Its also: a little creepy, difficult to hide, difficult to throw away.

Maybe it'd be cool if it could make intelligent human-like movements, living giving a blowjob or handjob, or clenching her vaginal muscles while your dick is in there. I actually had a dream about that once. It was really good.

I have been planning to code a Tohno-chan search engine as I was bored. (then I've noticed it'd work on 4chan with relatively minor changes, but oh well).

The first step was to create a website that can read Tohno's page format. I did that.

Things that aren't working:
- pages. Will do that in a few hours.

Go check it out and find bugs!

I'm seriously considering buying a used MacBook. What's holding me back is compatibility issues. So I wanted to ask any otaku Mac users how they fair with their Mac. Can it play games like Touhou or Melty Blood relatively easily? Are most visual novels denied to you? How's watching HD/BD anime?

Visual novels are what I'm most concerned about. I wouldn't even call myself a gamer save for those rare occassions. If it really comes down to it, I can stream my anime. But I want to be able to play VNs (working on Fate/Stay Night and Ever 17 right now) even if I have to use voodoo magic on the command line. I suppose I could dual boot, but I would prefer not to. Besides all that, I just use my computer to browse the web and write documents.

I finally remembered this thread I created. I had to replace some hardware and upgrade to Snow Leopard, but I got my Mac running everything I want it to (Wine is a gift from the heavens). No stuttering problems with F/SN like I had on my old laptop. Here's a list of pros and cons I've come across while using my MacBook:

1. Pretty UI and build
2. Almost no compatibility problems
3. Apple goes to great lengths to make OS X easy

1. So little freeware it hurts
2. Apple thought it would be hilarious to lock this model's HARDWARE from accessing 64-bit mode. What the hell, Apple?
3. The average Mac user doesn't know anything about their own OS. Needless to say, the community is of little help with problems you can't lol point n click away.
4. fdisk has been mutilated to the point that I'm not even sure how to use it.
5. OS X gives me a big FUCK YOU whenever I try to boot from a USB. Someone tell me of another OS that doesn't let you boot from a USB! What the hell kind of shit is this!? This pisses me off to no end!

I will be installing Ubuntu on my MacBook. I can't deal with how unfriendly this OS is to people who want to do tasks beyond media editing. I wanted to believe people were exaggerating when they said OS X was restrictive. I believed in the goodness of Apple. I was wrong.

What the hell is it with Apple taking ownership of all the products they sold to you that you supposedly "own"? That is my number one issue with them.

I wish I could take a diehard apple fan's keys, make a copy, and then send a team of Apple people in to rearrange his kitchen drawers, the layout of his furniture, the colors of his walls and all the outlets his appliances are hooked into, because that's the way Apple does things, and, from now on, that's the way he is going to do things as well. And every time he loads iTunes, the team is going to come in and fix whatever he's changed in his house.

Something tells me he'd welcome it.
>> No. 967 [Edit]
While I can understand Apple wanting to idiot-proof their system, they should provide a key for all the locks they put in place. Deciding absolutely on what can and can't be done is tyranny, especially when their customers pay so much to own, not borrow, one of Apple's computers.
