Thread for questions that don't deserve their own thread.
I wanna buy some headphones to go outside i don't want to spend more than 100€ on them. I want them to be mostly durable and secondly to have good sound quality, also i don't want to look like a jackass while wearing them, any suggestions?

How well do Wacom tablets and Clip Studio Paint work on Linux?

Shiiit dude 100 euros is not much for some good headphones, in the UK at least. Do you want bluetooth? Over ear or on ear?

For my own tablet (Wacom Bamboo) I have found it actually easier to use on my Linux distro (Mint).
Which is to say, I didn't need to install any drivers like I did on Win 10 and they seem be work just as well as the official ones. The only downside is that I can't seem to turn off the finger-tracking, but that isn't a big deal.

Also, Clip Studio Paint does not work on Linux.
There is likely a way to emulate it through Wine, but I haven't tried it yet.
If you need a comparable art program for Linux, i'd recommend 'Krita' which is a free, open-source and pretty much just like Clip but without the outline/halftone layer options and a slightly annoying text editor.

In my experience, Sony deliver a pretty great audio-price-durability balance. I had some MDR-XB950B1 which delivered pretty great sound, but weren't too comfy since I wear glasses too. Used em for the gym every day for a year, worked fine so quite durable. Try get one with flexible bits that join the speakers to the band though since that's where most breaks will occur. For your price range I'd probably recommend the lower end over ear version though, MDR-XB650BT (I don't know what retard comes up with these names).

There is indeed a way to emulate CSP that I found: https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=250223&p=1345470#p1345470
The problem is that I have a free 2 year trial of the full version and I don't know how that'll work out. Would I need to pirate it after all?

Krita doesn't have the awesome halftone layer mask that Clip has (which instantly converts a layer to black halftone).
More importantly, the text tools are really awkward, way worse than any other program i've used (it's hard to explain).

Apart from that it is fantastic.

Is anyone else having problems with cankakucomplex or is it just me? I can only open it on Tor after going to advanced and giving permission to "take the risk" and open the site, however when I click on the images they give me a blank page and only opening the image html separately gives the image itself.
Tor tells me my computer clock is set for July 3rd, yet my onscreen calendar is correctly giving me July 2nd so what the fuck is happening?

Q: Is there some way to collectively keep track of 'plans' made up by the collective in a given chat group?
Say we're three in a group-chat, we decide to do x thing on y date a month from now - is there some application that's designed for this scenario? Wouldn't it basically have to be part of the chat-program to not pose a security risk? Have you ever used a chat program that has this function?

If I were to study web development, how broad is that field actually?
I've always got the impression that it involves the standard http(s) website coding in HTML, CSS, JS, etc. but last night I laid wondering if other projects I'm somewhat interested in too, that also are very network-heavy in scope, would be included? For example something like RSS, instant messaging, P2P?
I'm guessing the last one is a 'no' simply because it's not technically 'web', but then what is it? It's not standard software engineering since it involves very complicated networking as the bulk of what's being maintained? But does it then go under ICT? Does web development also go under ICT?

It's been about a decade since I really cared about the health of my computers. Is there a modern guide to cleaning up a windows system? This laptop has a 100gig ssd and a terabyte hdd D drive. I split the D drive to install ubuntu but because of school testing never really bothered learning it because their lockdown software was windows only. I know that the proper solution is probably just reinstall windows, but are there programs like CCleaner and stuff to help me determine what the fuck is up with my computer? How to make sure my drivers are up to date and how to find all the little leftover files that are taking up space from programs no longer installed? Figure out what is taking up most of my space on my ssd?

Alright, so my cousin who lived in a major Australian city used to work in IT. He would put on fake accents. People calling for help would often ask for the Russian, who had a reputation for being very helpful. Whereas the Indian (another accent he did) would take too long, could be rude at times and would get sidetracked reminiscing about something. When people would call they heard the Indian accent and asked if anyone else was in the office. He would put them on hold for a minute then switch to another accent. Being Australia, a cultural melting pot, a big city, and a very big IT department people calling and other people in IT would assume that having lots of ethnicities in the office was normal. There were a handful of accents he did American, Italian, Vietnamese, Japanese, Chinese, German and so on.

I don't think it's talked about enough how modern tech is absolute shit and getting worse somehow.
Like you need a state of the art CPU + GPU to run some shitty website. Or there are tons of trackers everywhere, ATT selling your phonecalls and messages [0], advertising tech so good that it makes people think their thoughts are being read or their voices are being recorded, software getting harder and harder to pirate (before a simple drag and drop of the exe/binary might have sufficed), etc etc. Like yeah, some things might be getting better but it feels like tech made a deal with the devil and "progress" has a terrible catch.
I guess the same could be said with capitalism and its development of the means of production.

First you should check if your paper is available on libgen. They archive papers accessed through scihub.

1. Go on your favourite libgen mirror. They change the domains from time to time but searching for "libgen" on DuckDuckGo should give you usable links.
2. Below the search bar, click "Scientific Articles". (See the first picture.)
3. On the scientific articles page, type in the title of the article or some other identifier and click search. (See second picture.)
4. Look at the results you are interested in and download them by choosing a mirror from the last column. (See third picture.)

>>5020
>>5020
If there are no results on Libgen, you will need to use Sci-Hub.

1. First, you should find the place from where you could legally download the paper you are interested in if you were an academic institution with too much money. You can usually do this by searching the paper's title.
2. Next, visit sci-hub. Again, DuckDuckGo for sci-hub if the domain you usually use suddenly goes dark.
3. Paste the URL you found in step 1 into the search bar and click "open". (First picture.)
4. You might need to fill in a captcha.
5. It will try to find a proxy from inside an university that can download it. Wait, this can be really-really slow. (Second picture.)
6. If it succeeds, you will get the PDF (Third picture). If it fails, it might show you the website that you pasted in and you will have to navigate to the place where you can download the article. In the bottom there will be a grey bar, pressing the button (like the play button on radios) will give you a new proxy.

I've not watched his channel before, it just popped up in "trending" on an Invidious front-page.
Is anyone here more familiar with him? Is he ideologically adjacent to us or did he just happen to find some Stirner memes he liked?

Having watched most of the vid he seems relatively reasonable (appears to have a basic understanding of imperialism, absolutely railing against intellectual property) – he may be a left-libertarian or something?

'''Antisocialists: people who advocate a laissez-faire, laissez-mourir state which refuses to help non-rich people, such as by providing medical care or education, or protect them by regulating how businesses treat them. Antisocialists call such programs "socialism".

Those people secondarily defend human rights, such as freedom of speech, and they like to call themselves "libertarians". However, polling them shows that a laissez-faire, laissez-mourir economy is their highest priority, and human rights come second for them. In effect, they try to use our support for human rights to manipulate us into advocating the laissez-mourir economy, by presenting that as a part of human rights.

Using the term "libertarian" for them emphasizes the secondary aspect of their views and paints them as champions of liberty. I choose to emphasize their primary focus by calling them "antisocialists." Let's all call them that.

The state's mission is enabling everyone to have a just, free and decent life, which includes both social programs and defense of human rights.'''

>install torrent client
same deal

then whenever you need to download stuff
>press power button
>ssh into [server]
connect to the server via a command line (like the command prompt or a powershell like program). There are free software for windows to connect with ssh that makes life easier. With ssh, you act as if you were in the command line of the server itself. You input a command that tells your torrent client to start downloading whatever torrent you want. Like "torrentclient "magnet?=apdjasjdlajsda". This is just an example, I haven't used a torrent client via the command line.
>scp file back into your main computer
This means "use the scp program to download the file from your server". T
You could also use some other type of software, like FTP or a one-click web server to access your files instead of using ssh.

I'm sure there is some linux distro that can basically do all of this for you. All you'd need to do is install it, and navigate to the local IP of your server and do whatever you need to do there. Unfortunately, I don't know of any projects like that personally.

Lubuntu's good too, and uses a little less ram at startup compared to Xubuntu (~350mb vs ~450mb) but configuring stuff like appearance is slightly less user-friendly for a beginner to Linux.

My experience with Debian was the opposite. I set up the system from a minimal install, so no display server etc. Very little bloat, was actually missing plenty of genuinely nice things Mint has by default. Yet the performance was somehow worse than Mint. As for a standard desktop Debian install, it has plenty of bloat, more than Mint in some ways. But I debloat my Mint installs anyway, while keeping the bloat I want.

>>11872
In your context you can think of Mint as just the latest Ubuntu LTS release. So the question is really about which package versions you need and that depends on each individual game. Some games will require newer libs, while some will work only on older distros because new lib versions are not backwards compatible. So you might need to multi-boot.

>>12020
BeautifulSoup uses getattr() magic to dynamically look up nonexistent attributes in the document you're parsing, then returning the value, or None if the attribute is not found. Your linter is unaware of this, so it complains. And I'm guessing your isinstance() check was on an empty BeautifulSoup object or another document without that element.

 No.12070

Should add that you can also compile new versions of required libs yourself to avoid switching between systems. Most games come bundled with required libs anyway, so these issues are rare.

What >>12210 said. Although maximizing windows is not as harmful anymore because of "letterboxing" (gray borders): your viewport size will be limited to a preset of resolution buckets, rounded to 100px. But I would still advise against it, since the default window sizes have a larger pool of users hence you'll blend in more with other users.

Some general tips:
- Be as uniform with other users as possible, use defaults. Increasing security level is OK though.
- Don't mix too many different things (especially not logins) in a single session, use "New Identity" as often as possible. Threat each session as a single identity. Tor Browser further isolates each (URL-bar) domain, so that tabs with different domains opened can't be linked via 3rd party cookies or other 3rd party resources. But a site could still redirect to a 3rd party domain and your data could leak via request parameters for instance.
- If any site rejects you, use New Circuit - or even web proxies as a last resort.
- If you don't want an account to be linked to you, create it and login into it only in Tor Browser.

>Is it true that all trustworthy VPN's have to be paid, in order to avoid that whole "if it's free, you're product" thingy?.
If you take the correct precautions then even something that your adversary controls and monitors can be used without your actions being linked back to you.

Trustworthiness is a dumb metric anyway, you should never rely on trust - it means being at the mercy of the other, letting them decide your fate. Even if you somehow know that your provider is really so eternally loyal to you, that doesn't make them immune to incompetence and external breaches either.

So if you decide to use a VPN (or anything in general), operate on the assumption that it's pozzed from the beginning. Paying or not paying is a matter of what features you want from them, not about buying their loyalty. A free VPN can also have its own advantages, such as not being linked to your bank account / not requiring payment in crypto.

A more concrete answer depends on what you're trying to achieve and what's your threat model.

If you were already using a version control system like subversion, mercurial, or git (caution, rcs chokes on binary files), you would probably find it easier work out something with that.
If you didn't understand most of this, you should read a primer on shell scripting, the file system and block devices. If you use Windows you're on your own.

<I can confidently say the Shields are pretty useless - the vast majority of trackers are left alone; in fact, sometimes it seems that a site can have hundreds of them, and yet none of them will be blocked by the Shields. Script blocking option simply blocks JavaScript fully - it's just NoScript revisited. Brave used to be able to install Chrome extensions only from source, but now does it the same as the other Chrome based browsers. Despite those, it not only spies on you, but is actively working against your privacy by whitelisting Facebook and Twitter trackers. Brave has also been soliciting donations in the name of other people without their consent!

is there any tangible benefit to overwriting vendor boot firmware with "libre" stuff?

 No.14002

>>13995
Coreboot/Libreboot could be faster than your proprietary firmware, because it can be configured to directly load a kernel (w/o efistub). Your computer would also have less backdoors with libreboot or coreboot using a few proprietary blobs.

This is probably a stupid question, but I'm using Windows 10 Ameliorated Edition, should i get an anti-virus program? On windows 7 most of the time the anti-virus just captured program files from pirated games, which is what i will mostly do on windows 10 AME.

>If you know how to avoid malware you should be fine.
If you're in a situation where you are downloading any third-party tools, it's good to have one. Now that Win10 has Windows Defender as an in-built anti-malware tool, that might actually be enough. I honestly don't know. But the 'just avoid malware' attitude is bad advice for people who install programs on their own.
I almost got pwnt a few years back downloading a common virtual joystick tool because a hacker managed to hijack the official, reputable sourceforge page for a few weeks. Almost any anti-malware would have detected it, but I stupidly thought Win Defender was anti-virus (only the case for win10+). The only reason I didn't have all my data exfiltrated was that a part of my OS was so out of date that the malware failed to extract the payload security through obscurity wins again!.

I only ever encountered adware by installing popular software from questionable websites.
>any anti-malware would have detected it
Regardless of how an antivirus detects hijacked TLS certificates, there are addons available for this purpose developed by all major antiviri. Most antivirus components are probably snake oil. AFAIK most antiviri extensively rely on malware lists, so installing common software over chocolatey would be the safest option.

FFmpeg can trim (-ss/-t) streams according to timestamps.
>organization it having a fucking timeline
It delegates this task to the filesystem.
>fucking overlay and basic fucking composite
See the overlay filter (https://ffmpeg.org/ffmpeg-filters.html#overlay).
>export fucking subs
ffmpeg -i video -map 0:s subs
>terminal nightmare
Do you know what a gui nightmare is? It's when all but the most common options need to be accessed through a menu path, require to be reselected for every new application (depending on the builtin level of abstraction) and often lack basic documentation, because they're "discoverable".
