My fucking computer exploded wtf?

Turned on my desktop computer just now, then there was a loud pop and a tiny bit of smoke. Goddamn now I got to figure out what part that was. Hope it didn't brick all the parts. Didn't even know they could do that.

Will there ever be an alternative video platform that matches its ability to let you regularly put out content to a large audience?
Vimeo comes close but you have to pay to exceed the limits and the audience is definitely more limited.

Why do people like books, still? All the reasons seem dumb/spooked and highly feels-based to me:

"Pros:"
> i just like the feel man
> books smell good dude
> you can like actually hold them and stuff
> wow like sit under a tree bro (e-readers let you do this)
> you can make notes in the margins (e-readers let you do this)
>muh physical bookmark


Cons:
<a library of 10,000 books will require an entire dedicated room at least, but can fit on a thumb drive in ebook formats
<can't search text quickly and easily
<can't get rid of other peoples notes

i hang around the end page of boards here to do some archiving. My problem is that i have this ocd-adhd (idk what it is) thing that makes it so that it's impossible to archive thing since everytime i open my own file i always worry (and believe) that i deleted something from said file or edit said file or mess it. is there any software that could help ? a software or something that could prevent me from deleting or messing or editing the file ?

If you're really worried, just back up your folder. You can try time machine, or something for windows. Also sometimes the file system you use can be used to keep snapshots, like APFS, btrfs, not sure about windows.

With that, you don't have to worry about losing your data.

I am currently on a tight budget (Broke uygha alert) whilst looking for a new mini PC. Due to being broke, i'm leaning towards buying an intel I3-1220P NUC since it's cheaper and has thunderbolt, but given recent events with Israel, would it be worthwhile to consider getting a more expensive AMD mini PC instead (since only the newer AMD mini PCs come with thunderbolt)?

Talk about why every single site except reddit and fbi.gov has been complete and utterly abandoned.

>Interesting things going on

Browsers are all forcing https by default. On the surface this sounds like a good idea but in reality it's part of a larger plan of control.
Website owners are now at the mercy of the cert authorities. Host something they dont like? you cert gets revoked and now your site wont load on 99% of web browsers.
you have been shutdown.

>What is the dead internet theory?

Dead internet is partly caused by a generational problem, zoomers just want to be where they're friends are. it's understandable, we even did the
same back in the 2000s. everyone was on AIM and myspace. The only difference is those platforms actually did allow free speech back then. now the
internet has become more centralized and a handful of big corps run it all. they are in charge of what gets said on their platforms. not you.

>big techs goal

Big tech is fighting a future war. They know the young are the future. It’s about indoctrination. They are building their vision for the future. A dumbed down controlled population.

I had to buy some train ticket the other day, and the website let me do it without needing an account, it just emailed me a pdf of the ticket that I showed to the conductor from my phone using a random pdf reader from F-Droid. Why can't everything be this convenient, why do everything else force you to register and account and download their malware ridden apps just to do something so simple?

Some time ago I had to buy some computer parts, I looked online, put the thing I needed into the virtual "shopping cart", and when I tried to pay it asked me if I wanted to log in, register, or continue as a guest. I clicked to continue, filled in the billing stuff, paid by card… and then got an email that everything is in order and they thank me for buying there and oh by the way, they made an account for me, here's my password.

Why let me buy stuff without registration if buying automatically registers me?? If I knew it would do that I would have just bought the thing in person.

’d like to interject for a moment…

…What you’re referring to as windows, is in fact, NSA/windows, or as I’ve recently taken to calling it, NSA plus Windows. Windows is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning NSA system made useful by the NSA corelibs, spyware and data collection system components comprising a full surveillance system.

Many computer users run a modified version of the NSA system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of the NSA data collection system which is widely used today is often called Windows, and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the NSA system, developed by the NSA.

There really is a Windows, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. Windows is the piece of trash: the program in the system that steals the system resources from the other programs that you run. This piece of crap is an essential part of an NSA system, but useless in practice; it can only function in the context of a complete NSA system. Windows is normally used in combination with the NSA surveillance system: the whole system is basically NSA with Windows added, or NSA/Windows. All the so-called Windows systems are really distributions of NSA/Windows!
