A lot of datacenters are expanding exponentially due to cloud computing. They're trying to cut costs as much as they can. I wouldn't be surprised if "cryptomining" is code for cheap datacenter storage areas. Water cooling would hypothetically save money on cooling costs.


How are they protected by big oceanic weather? Won't 10 meter waves swallow them whole?

The cost of water desalination to eat up those savings and more. Unless you're suggesting that saltwater be used in which case lol.

It has 256mb onboard but won't recognize the 256mb stick which works fine in the MK1





that is because the recent models are mirrored from the Ideapad schematics. Though the thermal is kinda better compared to older Thinkpad designs and it can fit a decent GPU.

The only problem with Ideapads is that razor sharp palm rest which they made so it looks thinner than it should then the terrible accutype keyboard. You'll know it when you see an odd square keys curved at the bottom like on that pic related - a Nu-thinkpad

So if I'm understanding correctly, if 2 or more threads simultaneously receive high amounts of posts, then this would mark all posts through those threads as "slides" right?



this is a very simple method for a simple thing: let's suppose i write a post in some thread that isn't kosher and so this post triggers a lot of replies in other threads and/or new threads. this would make a high slide factor for this non-kosher post. sometimes the non-kosher post that triggers a slide won't be the last post in a given thread, so the assumption is then broken, but it will give a big slide factor to surrounding posts. it doesn't take sages into account. this is the first version of this script, it's more like a proof of concept, but this kind of method can totally neutralize the concept of slides IMO when more variables get taken into account.

in short this method can sometimes find you non-kosher posts, that triggered slides, but it will also show higher numbers throughout the board when global slides happen or when the board gets filled up with normies.

the slide factor numbers will be higher for more active boards.

so, it's not a script to detect slide posts, like >>943018 suggests, it's rather a tool to detect controversial posts - posts, that triggered unusually high activity outside of the thread you are browsing


does the script take into account the difference between bumping old threads, making a bunch of new threads and posts in other active threads?

Otherwise if there's two very active threads the SF might go crazy without being a real slide.



oh btw if there's a long running thread, the posts that were added immediately before or during the times of heavy shilling will have a much higher slide factor number than when a board is chill


it only takes into account a difference of post numbers and a difference of time, as noted in this formula:


and so it doesn't really matter if the posts inbetween are in another thread or all other threads combined.

so, in your example, the SF will go much higher for posts in a thread A if there happen to be moments, when there are over 9000 posts per second in thread B, just like it will go higher during moments, when all other threads get bumped to bury the thread A. i don't really know how it will work out, it's an experiment after all

General discussion about PowerPC computers, mainly Macs

General info:

-Cheap as fuck

-PowerBook G4's and iBook G4's have their CPU'S SOLDERED. MOBO's are cheap though

-It's not x86 (which is a good thing)

-Great keyboards. Apple used to produce some A-grade keyboards (on par with classic thinkpad keyboards)

-powermac g5's are absolute powerhouses. beats the shit out of core 2 quads. ram upgradeable to 16gb. less noisy than modern computers ;)

-If you get one I highly suggest getting a Mac one. Apple, despite being shit these days, produces a shitton of parts for all their products. If something goes wrong, you can fix it with little cost

-Again, CHEAP!

-iBook G4 slightly less powerful PowerBook. RAM upgradeable to 1.5gb. A bit more common, and a bit less money. I'd go with a PowerBook

-PowerBook G4's ram can be upgraded to 2gb

OS choices:



-FreeBSD, despite being cuck'd, probably supports PPC the best of any OS


-Vine Linux (Japanese distro)

-Debian Netinst/Ubuntu Server*

*netbsd is less secure than most bsd's. although it probably will support powerpc throughout its entire life because that's the projects main goal, support as many architectures as it can

*gentoo has you compile everything from source. on an old powerpc this can be extremely long and time consuming, it will definetely benifet from the speed boosts after the compiles though

*debian/ubuntu use systemd which might slow it down, ubuntu has snaps enabled which might slow it down. will most likely drop support soon

>I should have say what I want it for. I'm writing a game which can run on this laptop under windows 98 (it also works on modern windows and linux) in about 30 fps.

>I just want a tiny linux kernel and a pointer to a framebuffer

You should see if Minix has been ported to it, it sounds like all you want is a microkernel.

To be honest though you don't even need a kernel if all you are doing is running a single application, there are guides and C libraries around the internet on how to write directly to frame buffers and read inputs on keyboards and such.



sure, I even wrote a demo for bare metal pc where I draw stuff and enter protected mode myself, but the game is writen in c++ with sdl ( ask just gives me a framebuffer, I have my own bliting code) and I'd like to try porting this game to semi bare metal state without writing a lot of additional code. If I just remove the sdl and replace it with svga lib I should get an elf that will just work on some old light linux right ?



but after reading about fbdev I think I'll try using that.



tl;dr just buy an adapter that with a DVI on one end and whatever you need on the other. As long as it's not DisplayPort or Thunderbolt on the other end, it should Just Work.

HDMI is just DVI with audio and optional botnet features that don't matter to us. DVI to HDMI adapters are cheap, plentiful and probably what you want. A G5 will also send an analog signal over the DVI port, so a regular DVI to VGA adapter will also work. I think there's also old style TV output hardware on most models if you need S-video or RCA ports for some reason, but I've never tried it myself. That ADC port right next to the DVI port is just DVI plus power and USB. You can buy adapters to turn that into a second DVI port if you really want to.


For any anons looking to work with one of these, these are the os's I've tried installing over the past five days.


Install disc keeps fucking up on the powermacg5 only tried the latest version and it was unable to mount the dvd.


Use 11.0 anything before that has temperature problems with the sensor, 11.3 fucks up drivers.

>Vine Linux

Kernel is 8 years old, it lost support in 2012. Use Ubuntu, 14.04 ends in 2019 and 16.04 ends in 2022.

Any form of Linux trying to boot on this thing instantly has fan problems, in that they will turn on and never turn off. They will be blowing at full power the entire time you're running the machine. The DVD drive when you're inevitably shoveling through os's to try and dump in this thing requires you to fuck around before boot and pray that it opens.

I put this off for a while, still need to do it for GLL


I'm not sure I really understand the point of this. You can already use other inits on Debian, and you can use a preseed to do it during install automatically (that's what I do anyway).

I'll look around anon. I hope he's just with family, best case scenario is he's managed to patch things up with them and back under their care.



Homeless people get diseases all the time. They are exposed to the elements, to numerous amounts of people, and have a poor diet. All these contribute to having a higher rate of disease. Not to mention they have no access to health care. Do you think people, regardless of the economic situation, can't get sick?

I wouldn't call living exposed to the elements, having no food or water, being dependent on others a dream whereever that is.




I'd imagine he lost access to the internet. Does anyone know if he has any savings to fall back on? Last time he went dark like this, he showed up and had just got out of the hospital.

Stop having 1000 projects, have 2-3 max with clearly defined goals and deadlines. Track your progress with something on your wall you see daily to motivate yourself. Having too many projects will overwhelm you and paralyze you causing you to only have 1000 ideas but no real hope of achieving a single one.

web browsing and chans are fundamentally broken

this is how it looks for me today:

1. open web browser

2. open chans and websites

3. open a lot of tabs

4. start reading chan tabs and answering in them

5. leave them open because more replies can come, also I plan to save tab to PC when it's done. or write some text on my PC after reading that tab

6. go sleep

7. reply to tabs from previous day & open more tabs

8. repeat, repeat, until I end with thousands of tabs

9. ???

I do not understand what I should do with all of chan and website tabs. And when. Web browsing is broken.

I cannot close them because they can get replies, or I want to save them, or do some follow up.

follow up - for example if I read that jews are evil, a follow up would be to kill them or plan to kill them, or write some text related to this.

The website's native js is merely the lube. When you've enabled it, in comes Jimmy Watkins with the syphilitic dick.


Just close your tabs. I never have more than five threads open at a maximum because I know I can just come back to it later.


I save a link to a thread I responded to in a text file.


Come up with a page limit. For example once a thread goes past page 10 I close that tab. As long as you are regularly checking the board itself, you'll see if that thread gets any updates.



Plus the archive means that if a thread dies, you can still read those last posts, albeit minus unique images.

That's nice qt, too bad it's a software problem.



>on i386



You just have no clue at all. There is 64 bit time on i386, the problem is all the software using the word size as time. Same problem on RISC-V. It will be a massive undertaking to fix, meanwhile IoT devices on RISC-V 32 that will exist in 2038 are headed out into the world. They fucked us hard by supporting 32 bit.



>use wrong data type

>because who gives a fuck what the manual says

>stuff breaks

No shit sherlock.



So what if it takes a lot of effort to fix? The cost of fixing all those libraries and software now is much smaller than throwing away literally everything that touches 32-bit time and writing new replacements that does exactly the same functions except with 64-bit time. How many years is it until 2038?
