This has been pissing me off for a while.
Fuck the 'foo' 'bar' 'baz' convention. Jesus christ how unoriginal and uncreative can one be?
It's everywhere; why the childlike 'goo gaa' words?

Anyway, general tech rant thread


I don't know what you're talking about

If you had to choose one OS to use for life, what would it be? I would Most likely go with Ubuntu, mostly because of support and documentation, but I'm torn between that or Manjaro.

It is GNU plus Linux.

I'd just like to interject for a moment
What you're referring to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.

Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called "Linux", and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project. There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use.

Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine's resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called "Linux" distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux.

Does anybody have one of these for keyboards?

OP here, i actually bought the ninox aurora (from the link at the top of the list)

It's pretty neat, and the sensors are good. Unfortunately it's too small for my giant hands. I'll probably hang onto it though seeing as it might be the last one available anywhere.


File: 1491153589427.png (973.39 KB, 1350x565, IBM_Model_M.png)

This is the only keyboard you're gonna need kid


I used to use a microsoft intellimouse, but now i use a shitty g602. I honestly wish i could go back but if i remember correctly i ended up killing off most of them in about a mounth then getting a new one.
Intellimouse is great but it's shit quality and breaks fast.

For those wanting a IBM-like keyboard, Unicomp sells them.


I own one and it's great. Has a nice solid feel and great clunking sound while typing. Obviously, it's loud as fuck from the buckling springs.

I just got this thing for $67 because my cheap mouse broke and I wanted something more reliable. It's covered in LEDs but it isn't terrible.

also kek, this has become a mouse thread.

How can I into advanced CSS? Any of it that I write is usually shit, and the rest is copied from someone else much better than me. I want to be that person.

I can code, my background is almost entirely backend/CLI programs, but I also have an eye for UI/design. I intend to be a CSS wizard, and I'm willing to put in the time.

Take the OP image for instance. Alignment can take me a while, but then how do I start designing the individual elements? I'll browse codepen for hours to find something similar, but I'd rather know how to do it than steal someone's work.

The shadow effect is really neat. How is that "Up Next" box designed and aligned? How do the soft animation effects work? I can "animate" something, but the fancy throws me in for a loop. This is stuff I'll research for hours but not really find any good answers for.


I am by no means a CSS expert or even novice, but your request made me think of Courses Web, which I have seen recommended in the past. Sure enough, they have a CSS course that's free. It looks like the purpose is to establish the basics, so you might want to check it out.



Thanks, I'll work it over.
In the meanwhile, I came across a subreddit with a fuckton of info: https://www.reddit.com/r/web_design/wiki/faq, if anyone's interested in this.


Be careful mentioning Reddit on an imageboard there, friend. Most imageboard users hate Reddit.

Anyways, that is a good subreddit. The users there are pretty helpful and give pretty nice advice. The wiki is pretty nice as well, and it's nice to see a subreddit actually using the wiki for something other than rules.


lol yeah I happen to be one of those people.
That subreddit is one of the least terrible ones I've come across though, and it was legitimately helpful.


also while I'm at it, I found another pretty good resource for web stuff:

Do any of you dabble in old tech or legacy operating systems? I just spent some time today and got a Windows 2000 vm to run the latest Firefox ESR. I can also watch Youtube videos, as flash works. Pic related.

I guess my server counts. I have debian running on an old Asus EEE PC 701 I bought back in 2008 or 2009, since I had no more use for it and it was just sitting around collecting dust.


I have a machine running the 1999 version of Windows CE. Unfortunately, it won't participate in the screenshotting.

I too have an old netbook being used as a server. It's an HP Mini 110. I use it mostly as a development server, I have a 500gb external attached to it as well setup with OwnCloud to have a personal backup of stuff.

I also have an old Compaq laptop being used as a Plex media server and nothing else. It has a 1tb external attached to it. I could probably do something else with it but I'm just not too certain.


i happen to own a mid 2004 G5 imac which in hindsight has not aged well at all hardware wise though i like to fuck around with it every now and then. nothing too invasive for the system itself.
although i have had the interest to embrace the whole linux distro deal. it might not hurt at all since it is a far cry from my current main computer.
