Who here is so sick of Trolls! They just pop out in the middle of a forum and bug you.
>The only way to defeat a troll is to not feed him. Therefore, what I'm sick of is self-important dinks who can't resist asserting themselves even in the face of an obvious troll.
Fixed & QFT'd.
Meh... just feed the trolls
/dev/null... All they'll get out of me is a big fat
Of course... if that fails (e.g. someone feeds the troll), there are things you can do to disarm the troll.
Some of them (like one last night... see the link) are very easily caught offguard.
Opera sucks sure there's an ebuild for opera but it just get dropped to /opt, it's statically linked, and it's CLOSED SOURCE, which means that it is a BINARY package.
I like how you say "CLOSED SOURCE" and "BINARY" as if normal people would also be afraid of those words.
This may seem kind of dumb but after helping set up and explaining the basics of a desktop to my aunt, I happened to notice that hibernate on her PC (Windows7) woke up with a mouse click and I thought this was the best thing ever! I tried to look for this in my power settings but couldn't find it on my PC (XP-Pro sp2), is there a way to change it to wake up from a mouse click instead of the mouse shaking/moving?? Lots of times I have to flip the mouse over so my PC wont wake up unintentionally from me jammin and bangin out on my bass guitar, am I missing where this setting is or can I not set this kind of wake-up activity instead?
I won a case on eBay where a seller never shipped an item to me the way described, in the time they said they would.
A few minutes ago, I got the package in the mail-AFTER I received a full refund and spent it.
I honestly wasn't ever notified that the package was at the post-office, since it was shipped a different way than I paid for....
Should I keep the item? I already bought a replacement, haha.
You already have one so you obviously don't need it. The people who sold it to you might need the money they get from selling it, so send it back. I'm sure they'll be happy to have it found and be able to sell it again. They might need that money. But, even if they don't, it's a dick move to keep it.
You could get away with keeping the money, but would you be morally ok with that? If so keep it.
I'm pretty sure this doesn't matter anymore. This was three months ago.
Don't you love the way fucking eBay is loaded down with CPU wasting, bloated, ads? They are already making out on auctions, and are alienating customers who are there (surprise!) to buy shit, not look at fucking ads. I have an older desktop, and I can hear the damn CPU fan revving up everything I go to that shithole.
American DSL is infamously bad, but I mean seriously 1.1 mbs???
WTF, everyone in my state using my ISP gets at least 2mbs. (I use at&t yahoo dsl, by the way). I'm dead sure I was getting 2mbs when I first upgraded my connection too, since I set my muTorrent to 250kbs max download; I've since had to throttle it down to 125.
Meanwhile the average Canadian can connect at 7mbs, the average French at 17mbs, and the average Japanese at like 50, or some other disgusting number.
I'd probably kill for that kind of speed.
Rural America doesn't get any kind of broadband service. The best we get is 50kbps, which is super lucky.
japan can do 50mbs? can anyone confirm this? holy shit im moving to japan if true
Well, we've been suffering long enough in Germany.
16MBit/s flat rates are now fairly common here; thank god.
But I know your pain. We fought for this, do the same. Found communities, complain to the government, etc.
More like 20mbs in Tokyo, which is pretty common with their fiber-optic lines. Although I understand this speed is mostly intra-Japan, they don't connect to US servers any faster than we connect to theirs, obviously.
That may not be such a big issue as long as there are enough BitTorrent peers in Japan downloading the same files. :-)
>>22 Perhaps you should upgrade the capacity?
no u. and stop distorting time, asshole
Sad in a way, but perhaps indicative of the changes in our society. I just returned after a 4 year hiatus, and I half to say it is almost heart-breaking to see the lack of content (ﾟ´Д｀ﾟ)ﾟ
Perhaps it was the end of an era? I hope not. Perhaps the drop of quality on contemporary imageboards (8ch, 4chan, etc.) will bring a flood of Anons back to textboards. They are a glorious thing that I hope we will rediscover.
well I want to leave 8ch anyway, where should I get the latest otaku updates?
One post every 3 months seems fair
let see if this can make text [b]bold[/b] or [i]italic[/i]
that didn't work lets try ''bold'' or '''italic'''
I don't like this whole 8gag thing guys. I want my mama
With regards to tech support specifically, people are less and less knowledgeable about their machines to the point that they may as well be black boxes. In some cases division of labor has just gotten to the point where it is impossible for one person or a small group of people to understand every aspect of a machine, but by and large I think the root cause of this phenomenon is the forced deadening of curiosity in the interest of selling more cheap shit. In Ghana people can keep their cars in working order well past 500,000 miles, in wealthier countries people just throw things in the garbage and buy new machines more poorly built and with more restrictions placed on the user than the last iteration. I've seen adults struggle to pump their own gas, people try advice online about fixing their phones by putting them in the freezer or some other nonsense you would expect of a cargo cult, and bioinformatics software grow so complex that people with doctorates often fail to understand the proper application of each program and just churn out worthless papers that have novel results only because of a questionable choice of statistical methods by the programmer (cuffdiff's negative binomial distribution is woefully insufficient for identifying differential regulation). Every so often there is a new burst of curiosity in whatever field is fashionable at the moment, but the trend has yet to be bucked in any meaningful way.
Even the computer companies that you would hope would know what they are doing have started to forget (http://www.eremedia.com/tlnt/lost-knowledge-what-are-you-and-your-organization-doing-about-it/). Intel is probably the best example of this. Most of the people involved with writing the basis for their millions of lines of proprietary microcode are dead, senile, or long since retired. There is no one left alive who has any damn clue how the processors work beyond the basic principles and whatever increasingly small niche of design they are assigned to improve on. Everything is slowly becoming machines making machines making machines with all knowledge of their function slipping away as people make petty little flashing light games that take the existing infrastructure for granted.
This was really a five star post.
Ive been picking up electronics as a hobby recently and i like throigh hole components. I can stick them in my breadboard to try stuff out and solser them by hand
Most technology today has smd parts in it though, they need a special process to solder them. Often pick and place robotic machines. The stuff is so tiny you need a micfoscrope to see it.
So thsi is another place where wre being distanced furhter from ebing able to cfreate, repair, understand and just get our hands on the bits inside stuff we use.
Its not all totally abstracted and removed from our grasp though, theres a cool youtube channel i started watching with a guy who repairs apple macs, louis rossman. It makes me think of exploring egyptian tombs, seeing the ball grid array arepairs and stuff like that. Its really alien.
Is there any graphic format to create animated images in true color that can be viewed by most browsers or does that have to be done in flash?
Pretty sure most browsers don't support any animation format.
4chan accepts non-sound .webm(Can accept sound .webms on their /gif/ board, but moot held it back because of screamers)
Some vichan/tinyboard fork supports sfv, sound webms and even animated png/jpg, but those are rare anyways.

Actually I did that when I first had trouble uploading the gif. But after much grueling labor I finally got the animated gif to look decent. If you look around you can find it posted on one of the boards around here
Webm might work, but what programs right to it or save in that format?
ffmpeg can convert things to it
How do you make the text bold or italic on these boards?
still relatively new to working outside generic operating systems. looking for an os that I can easily use to stay off the radar and to start learning how to develop my own software eventually.
I can't reach Sankaku Complex, neither directly not with a free webproxy. Could somebody tell me if they are all right?

Who fucking cares? Sankaku Complex is worse than 4chan.
