Have a question, might as well make it a general thread.


Is it possible a open source and proprietary license? Any examples?

Also unrelated: please change the boards theme to blue; this one suggests NSFW.

I'm not sure if you're being sarcastic, but try to think about it this way. Does 8/g/ even have a right to exist, if it doesn't try to be better than 8/tech/ and 4/g/? Let's face it, we'll never beat them in popularity, so we have to beat them in quality, which means being smarter than them. One of the things that makes browsing those boards painful is that they're so immature, and lately there's been too much discussion of politics. I want this board to succeed, but it'll never happen if we just try to be a clone of 4/g/.

Can I create a functional ham radio station using only parts from a certain amount of these things and some scrap metal? I also have a soldering station, and a crap ton of various sorts of insulated and uninsulated wire. I would just go to radio shack or order off the internet, but I lost my credit card and radio shack is dead.


It depends on what you want to do. Making kids toys work on HF will probably result in disappointment but it sounds as if you might like the homebrew scene in ham radio. Standard blah blah license blah blah, you know this already.

Crystal Sets to Side Band is a comprehensive look at homebrewing but it is too large to upload here.

Squatting upon Designated Shitting Street

I shook my head, and when I looked down

I saw the Designated Shitting Ground

I raised my head up, and then with a sigh

I saw the Designated Shitting Sky

I hate this world that has no worth

Why must I live on Designated Shitting Earth?

Hey goys, i just finished my small web server.

Is there any small project you want to host?

I'll host it free for you. I dont use that much bandwith on my server and i pay for it anyways.

Post your component list, rate other anons', and ask questions in general.

Always state the purpose of your PC, your budget, AND YOUR COUNTRY if outside the USA.

If you are asking for improvements, clarify whether you want to lower price or to improve specs or build quality.

Assemble your parts list; built-in price comparisons by vendor and a compatibility filter.


Gaming builds based monitor resolution and refresh rate


>To activate the Description, select build from sidebar then click on the title over the parts list

>Description contains notes, other options, and build skeleton for easy customization / cost savings

>Note: Win7 and 8.1 cannot be installed on a 200 series chipset

Have a budget, but don't know where to start? This will recommend you a parts list based on price.


>Subsitute a G4560 with 2400MHz RAM for any Pentium or i3; similar performance, up to 50% cost reduction.

It's cheaper because it's inferior, it's all garbage. Intel and NVIDIA cost more, but offer exceedingly increased performance and driver support that actually works.


Yank shit out and throw away money. That's a what, 5 year old mid-range processor? It ain't gonna cut it, too old.

File: 2c1a2b85023a2fe⋯.png (72.84 KB, 848x952, 106:119, build mk1.png)

This will be my first ever PC that I've built. I won't be able to buy everything until at least the end of the year. My job doesn't pay well and I'm aiming for a mid-tier gaming rig with decent upgradability for the not-so-near future.

I've been researching parts ever since I got this job, two weeks ago, and so far I've come up with this build. I had a Corsair CX600 on the list but after seeing the reviews and how it either dies or kills parts with it so often I decided to choose another one. I think this 600B might be decent enough.

I chose the case mostly because people say it's airflow is great but also because it was the most appealing to me while also being able to contain an ATX mobo. Speaking of which, I think the B250-PLUS is a good choice, I was going to get the PRO but it's smaller than a normal ATX and I've read some people having problems with that because it won't attach properly to their case. The RAM stick is not the one I chose, I just forgot to change it in that list, it's the same model but it's a 2400MHz version.

The 1050 Ti suits my needs precisely, I won't be gaming at 4k in Ultra, just want enough to play whatever's currently being released at medium perhaps.

What I'm most concerned about is the i5-7400 Kaby Lake. From what I read Kaby Lake is not a big improvement at all compared to the Haswell generation. Do you think it's reasonable to get one for upgrading purposes or should I try some other generation or brand?

My current specs just in case someone's curious:



>generic PSU


I got it in 2011, I think. Now it's way past the time to build a new rig.



It's hard to say wither or not you should upgrade the Haswell. The only reason why I would say you should is for DDR4 memory support which could make a big difference. But at the same time if you're content with DDR3 then there really is no big leap in performance where you could get a somewhat better GPU like a 1070.

If possible try to find a cheap Skylake, and see if you can squeeze in a 1070

I'm doing a side project where i will stream some videos. Currently using jewtube, i know they will shut it down if it gains momentum.

So is there a good, anonymous, secure alternative to youtube?

liveleak comes to my mind but i don't really know about them or how ((( compromised ))) are them.


File: ad21d901ee36e60⋯.png (110.99 KB, 333x331, 333:331, consider_the_following__me….png)

I'm replying myself, but so far i've seen solid alternatives for "video hosting and easy sharing" sites like youtube with privacy and without annoying watermarks (like liveleak has, which kind of turned me off for me).

Here is one that i'm starting to use:


It uses the "media goblin" framework:



A bad goy on voat made his own thing: http://gvid.pw

Never used it myself, but his heart is at least in the right place:

>GVid is an alternative to Youtube currently in development. It aims to have a content neutral policy, leaving the mitigation of triggering events to the user.




you probably know of this one, but minds.com. If you want to be anonymous use a vpn or something with it, otherwise I have heard good things about media goblin so far, but I haven't looked at it myself

>the problem with it is its use requires your browser to tell Google which page you're browsing every time you ask for one

Funny, isn't that malware in and of itself?


For now, it's the best browser choice, if you don't like the current direction of firefox and don't care much for chrome and it's forks


Pale Moon is the same thing as Firefox.


Should be toggleable in about:config, right?


It's really pale.




you don't need to find old versions of anything, just paste this

What are your strategies?

How do you sort files?

Please post it in as much words as possible also linking to articles or videos is OK.

>save everything on desktop



Well for my images , I have a folder for the website I will most likely use if for , Then it goes by genre such as 'shitposting' , 'desktop' , ' reaction'


Recent items, I drop on the desktop. Later, I move things around by file type.

mv *pdf ~/docs/pdf/.

mv *gif *jpg ~/docs/img/.

mv *txt *rtf *doc[,x] ~/docs/txt/.

I also group things by project, when there are a lot of related files.








For porn, I have one unsorted folder containing all my downloaded doujins or other image sets, and another folder named "To_be_sorted" that contains several thousand standalone images I continue to pretend will at some point be catalogued with Hydrus.

I just got my Samsung Galaxy J5 with android version 6.0.1 marshmellow. I'm considering rooting it but first want to know if most of you are happy with a rooted android.

My main reasons to root are privacy and to get rid of all those dumb google apps.

So are you happy with your rooted android phone?


Ive rooted mine and I like it


I rooted mine and I like it. But be warned it will lose lots of polish if you get rid of the Google apps, many other apps like Snapchat won't work without Google play services.
