I used to have a gaming PC. Built a really fast computer. Had a multi-monitor setup, lots of stuff around my desk, the works.

But I found that discouraged me from going out. Now, my battlestation is literally just a MacBook. I work on group programming projects with people on campus, or sometimes I work or study in the library or engineering building. It's much more liberating to move around instead of confining myself to a room. A room can feel like a prison.

Sure, a laptop is slower, not as upgradable, and more expensive for the same performance. No, I can't play games on it. But it encourages me to be more productive and social.

Just my two cents.

I never really did anything, but remember one time a teacher must have forgotten to log out of the admin account so this one kid had access to it, and of all the things he could have done all he did was install planetside 2. There were some wannabe skiddies in other classes which I heard rumor of but I don't think anything ever happened that was particularly entertaining.

 No.983

Kinda. For some unknown reason, the admins had it set up so that the first user to login to a machine after boot was able to run programs as admin. You could not run them normally, same as when you where logged in when ever, only as admin, which was very odd.

That spread, friends telling friends I got called in to the Headmasters office about 4 months after the initial find. Got praised for being such a 1337 ][4x0r. Moved on with life.

Later on, about a year later, the whole BT network for the northeast schools and libraries, and other public funded things of that nature went down (TOTALLY NOTHING TO DO WITH ME I SWEAR ON ME MUM RITE FOR LEGAL REASONS) for 2 days. I was dragged in because they thought my stupid admin bug was to blame, it was not. Even after that, it was not fixed for another 6 months or so. Making it a grand total of 1.5 years to change one setting.

They only blocked account > account access attemts that came directly from the filesystem. Because every account that logged into a computer was downloaded onto said computers hard drive permanently (a really poor decision imo) the files were still avalible localy. However there was a bug by which I could proxy the local file/directory URL's through another program (internet explorer in my case) and bypass the admin prompt. That way I could copy to and from the users filesystem (but not delete or modify existing files) and it would update to the server on the next logout.

For $17, it's not bad, but I can't recommend it if you're looking for something that will last. As predicted, the build quality is poor, and it would surely be damaged if it were to take a fall onto a hard surfaced area. But everything else seems okay. Battery is still full after a day's use, MP3 player works well enough, although the included headphones are going in the garbage. I was happy when I set my custom 128 x 160 anime background from some ancient cell phone wallpapers site.

Anyone else interested in electronics around these parts? I have some experience with making my own (simple-ish) circuits and fiddling with microcontrollers, and I've found it to be a ton of fun. I should get around to getting a bunch of assorted electronics junk so I can start tinkering with stuff at home as well, I've got plans for a couple of gadgets of varying usefulness.

Hey OP! I'm studying electronics at my local college. It's pretty fun, and I'm finally getting into the math of the stuff, after doing it hobby style for a number of years.
Getting a bunch of junk is probably fun, but I would recommend getting stuff for a project rather than just random parts. Do you have ideas for projects?

 No.783

>>782
I'm actually doing a degree in EE right now and landed a course with lots of hands-on work after a few years of not really doing anything with electronics, which inspired me to make the thread in the first place. I agree on random component orders being pretty pointless, I just don't have anything at home right now and I need to stock up on some basic things.

As for projects, I'm personally planning on making a USB handbrake with an expansion header for possible additional DIY controllers in the future. The main obstacle is trying to figure out the mechanical side of things, making it sturdy enough to withstand use while keeping costs low is always a challenge, the electronics are going to be the easy part.

I'm also getting an EE degree. I would play with hobby stuff more if I had the time/money… but I might restart a project to build an audio mixer that I was working on.
I found that the first couple of years did little to make me very interested in starting my own projects. Now that I'm deep in the higher level courses I'm starting to get some ideas. But I have fuck all time to make extra cash to support those ideas…. so I just screw around with LTSpice.


Do any of you sushi rolls have experience with modding laptops/more sensitive electronics?

 No.802

I've liked taking things apart and modifying them since I was a child. Repairing electronics is also a lot of fun and keeping stuff from ending up in a landfill is a definite plus.

Minored in EE at university, but haven't really done much with what I learned there. Every time I come up with a cool gadget or another project someone already seems to be offering it for super cheap on ebay.

Juniper's Knot is a great little game, really good for a Western release. Love the music.

Still haven't read Narcissu, gosh, how useless…

I'm currently playing Karakara, which is another short one (4-6 hours I think). Light and silly but well-grounded, the tone starts to shift about halfway through. I'm enjoying it and interested to see where it will go. Also fully voice acted + has an option for both English and Japanese subtitles, which is a plus for my language studies.

You can pick it up for a dollar in this week's Humble Bundle along with a bunch of other light distractions. 18+ scenes require a separate purchase on Denpasoft, bought them on sale out of curiosity but I think they detract from the story.

 No.791

I'm currently reading Higurashi.
It's a bit strange, because in the past few years MangaGamer have released new translations for most (but not all, yet) chapters, which is supposedly the best way to read it. I've checked out both translations, and while the new is definitely better, there are still infrequent errors, like "strawberryt", "an classroom" and "gamering attention" instead of garnering attention. In neither translation do errors bother me, the writing is stellar, but it's strange to pick between which one you prefer now.
Otherwise, this is the comfiest horror I've experienced. Normally horror is treated all about lots of pressure on the reader, but this one spends lots of time getting you comfy and settled in, albeit to pull the rug out from under your feet later.
I'm not sure if that makes it sushiworthy. Horror is inherently uncomfy, but at the same time it can be very cosy too.

The latest novel I read was - and I swear I am not trolling - Euphoria. (If someone doesn't know it, it's a guro nukige, so keep that in mind if you try googling it). I was really curious because a lot of people everywhere kept saying "holy shit, the story is actually really good", so I wanted to test it out.
I obviously had to skip like 3/4 of the novel not only because it was shocking at first, but because it's so over the top it get grating after a while and you just don't even care anymore.
The story was… Eh. It was okay, it had kind of a fun twist at the end that nobody can imagine. It's probably the best story you could find in a nukige ever, but I feel it doesn't justify having to ignore all of the crap (sometimes literal) they throw at you for like, 4-5 hours or something.

I do think the sprites for the girls are gorgeous. Nemu in particular is very beautifully drawn.

Anyway, I wanted to get into Kara no Shoujo, but I haven't had the time to actually sit down and play it. I love mysteries and horror.

How many of you own fancy GPUs/processors, and how many of you prefer simpler/cheaper hardware?
Does anyone own more than 2 or 3 computers? If so, why?

I have mine with me. If it weren't a good PC, I don't know if I would have bothered, but it's nice to have. I'm renting a room off campus, so I probably have a bit more space than I would in a dorm. If you're planning to move around every year it would probably be a pain since you would have to pack a monitor, peripherals etc.

 No.765

Kind of what I figured… Perhaps I ought to just leave it at home the first year and bring it up once I get off campus housing.

 No.767

My main PC is a little over three years old. It has an i5 4690k, R9 480x, and 8GB RAM. The PC itself cost around 1000USD to build. Peripherals were another 500USD or so, but I upgraded those over time. At this point things are pretty nice and I don't expect to replace anything for at least two more years. I don't need cutting-edge.

I also salvaged/resurrected my previous PC. I keep it around for playing with BSD or other experiments, but I don't really use it that much. If I don't turn it into a server I'll probably give it away.

Then there's a laptop which I mostly have for when I visit home or need to do on-call work. It's nothing special.


>>763
I had my desktop in uni. It was two years old when I started and was limping along by the time I graduated, but I loved the thing. I did have a single dorm so space wasn't as much an issue, but I also knew some people who managed to fit their multi-monitor setups in their double dorms and still be reasonably comfortable. Typical dorms will have a desk for each resident, so unless you plan on filling yours with other stuff you should have some amount of space.

The portability was an issue mostly because I didn't have much reason to go out. The computer labs proved to be a great resource for socializing and collaboration but I missed out the first year. By senior year I think I was doing more work in the lab than my room, even when working alone. Of course a laptop also helps for versatility when doing groupwork because sometimes the lab is inconvenient (crowded, noisy, hard to find adjacent PCs, etc). And while I can fondly remember lugging the desktop across campus for LANs it was not pleasant at the time.

Overall I would recommend bringing it unless you also happen to have a laptop that is powerful enough for any work and entertainment needs, or if you know that your room will be tiny and not provide a regular-size desk. Have you seen a sample dorm room yet?

 No.768

>>767
I've seen one or two, but there's a few options involved. I want to get a double so I can get to know someone better, but I should still have room. The thing is, do I bring my TV and games, or my PC? Decisions. I have a Thinkpad x220 so honestly that will probably work better for my computing needs. I don't really play PC games so.

 No.769

>>768
Since you have a decent laptop and seem to prefer console games I'd say you should be safe leaving the desktop.

If possible I still suggest you bring a monitor, keyboard, mouse, and/or whatever other peripherals make you comfy while working. The semester can get stressful.

I'm not really schizophrenic though, as a baseline. I'm a schizoid, samish name quite different workings.
I do get kinda schizophrenish like when I have manic episodes though. Happens when under too much emotional or conceptual stress. Usually get it all out on paper or file though. Got boatloads of paper and file from all past episodes. A fair share is jumbled because I couldn't focus long enough on one thing to describe in enough detail. Hard to know what will be obvious or not when you come down to earth again. Figured last time that I could try sharing a toy idea that can't really hurt anyone, on here for fun, since I've never shared before.

But on the why, I figure it's because when you're already that far out and cut off from normative thinking, you're literally thinking outside the box. You don't have to step out of it, it's the other way around. You have to step inside the box to shape it in such a way that you can actually use it. Which is why most productive cases can speak at least somewhat coherently. Though most often there is something that kinda tips you off, and if they're a case that never comes down, they usually can't really focus on one subject enough to actually explain how it works.

Like I only fly up there every once in a while, and then all the scrap thoughts come through with the usable parts. But then when I come down I function like most others on a surface level, though I have an interesting mental life. Haven't had the motivation to actually use it though, because the current way of things "work". Even though they're inefficient and primal.

Like how we've become so dependent on tools that we've forgotten how powerful a mind can be. How much a brain can store. How you don't actually need anything to prototype with if you build it inside of you, like Tesla did. Fantasy can be used for more than imagining boobs if you only realise that, and you learn to use it again. Because filling a brain with so much preformed fantasy breaks the machine that can create them, and much of my prior mental capabilites as a child are scrawny because of that. Spending so many days letting the machine corrode and rust, feeding the fear of boredom instead with so many movies and games. Music and books feed the imagination though, they inspire. You have to imagine the words yourself.

I'll attach reference to how TeslPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Also, it's not really for attention like somebody said. Or that depends on how you say it. It's just that I don't have anyone I can speak to about this stuff. It gets very lonely sometimes, and during my last mania I had to get something out there. Like I have tried to bring up concepts with close friends without the mania clogging up the words, but they don't really grok.

So it gets lonely. And it would be nice with a coprocessor, a different view than your own. And that's kinda hard to find without attracting some kind of attention.

Like I could build a virtual cognitive assistant, like building a mind palace for mnemonics but instead shaping a function that helps me about, but that is still me. You wouldn't crave company and love any less because you had the genetic power to grow pussies instead of hands. It'd just be a way nicer hand to jerk off with, and we already have pocket pussies so it'd be quite inefficient to sacrifice a hand just for the sake of fucking yourself literally.

>hand pussies
Would the womb continue into your arm or would there be a womb-shaped bump at the back of your palm? This is very unsettling.

 No.751

>>750
That's a great question actually. Then we get into real weird territory though, if the hand pussies are actually fertile, would it be super-incest? And can you actually inseminate eggs with the same DNA as your sperm?

As for the anatomy, I'd say it makes the most sense if it just that the womb is contained in the forearm, ovaries further up in the upper arm. It would put less stress to carry a child as well as long as you had support for the weight, because all of your organs aren't shifted around as per usual pregnancy.

(fun fact: A large ratio of the size of a pregnant belly is actually just from the constipation of having your intestines pushed around from their usual orientation. The nice things you get to know when a friend of yours gets pregnant.)

 No.752

>>751
I concede the forearm placement.
Additionally, it should be specified that, for the ease of fucking, it should be placed so the normally upper part of the opening is closer to the fingers.
The womb needs to go slanted and be mostly above the back of the arm (the same side as the back of the hand).
This way, you won't have to bow down too much while doing the deed and it will allow you to stimulate the clit and testicles at the same time comfortably.

The only problem now is what to do with finger bones. I say remove middle and ring fingers entirely.

Now I am actually hoping that some bioengineer makes this possible.
