RIP Terry. For those of you who don't know, he was a schizophrenic programmer who wrote his own operating system from scratch. It was called TempleOS. He was known for being weird and saying funny and offensive things. He livestreamed a lot. He was banned from many different social media platforms.

At one point, he was writing software for TicketMaster machines, but his mental illness got the best of him and he had a mental breakdown and moved back in with his parents, living on disability income. He spent a decade making his operating system, but had fights with his parents and eventually became homeless. And now he's gone.

A genius like him had so much potential, if only he had gotten help for his mental health problems.

Man, that sucks. It's been confirmed now, still a lot of unanswered questions though. What was he doing in front of a train? He was a devout christian, can't imagine him killing himself. There was also apparently some guy who was impersonating him and stealing dontion money, I don't know much about it. I guess it doesn't matter now, RIP Terry.

Arrest of a man suspected of threatening to assassinate the US ambassador to Seoul
SEOUL, July 24 (Yonhap) - A 30-year-old man posted a message on the White House website on July 8, threatening to assassinate the US ambassador to South Korea, Mark Lippert, and he was arrested by the Seoul Police Agency (SMPA), it was reported this Friday.

This message of 10 lines, considered illogical and incoherent by the police, was also posted on the American Internet portal 4chan by this man.
Mark Lippert, the ambassador of the United States in South Korea

Write your own programs. use source code from the internet in seconds. update when you want to not when it tells you.
Want to run a website? cool! you can set one up in minutes.
Want to adjust your hardware to your liking? Awesome!
Want to stop or make a new feature to a program you use every day? Go for it!

You can set it as your login shell, but keep /bin/sh as bash or dash. The `chsh' command is what you want to use, but in my experience editing /etc/passwd manually is more reliable. GUI terminal emulators may require additional configuration.
>>309
Just check a list of all your installed packages, and delete the ones you don't want. If you use gentoo you can edit your /var/lib/portage/world to remove old crap you don't need, and then run emerge –depclean.
>>799
Alpine has a similar simplicity to it. I've just switched to it from Gentoo, because I was a retard and I deleted some important libraries. I was unable to fix the problem manually within a reasonable timeframe and I didn't feel like compiling everything from scratch, so I backed up /home and switched to Alpine.

So I'm using Linux Mint Cinnamon, is there a way to show thumbnails in the filepicker? If not, what distribution should I use that does? My PC is very old, like, it is an HP pavilion g6. With about 4 gigs of RAM.

 No.952

>>951
Thumbnails like that is something people have been asking about for a long time now. There are patches floating around I think, but nobody with power within the GTK project seems too interested in adding such a feature themselves. I get around that issue by using my regular file manager and drag the file I want over to the application I want it open in (that's also something that can be inconsistent, not everything supports drag and drop).

QT applications (that would be anything KDE and related applications) has a file picker that supports thumbnails. So it might be worth trying QT and KDE alternatives to the applications you use. Kubuntu comes bundled with KDE, and I'm sure you can use KDE with Mint as well.

I want to enjoy free software on my desktop systems, but I think these kinds of things makes free software a little annoying outside of CLI tools. I wish desktop environments were a lot more consistent and supported these kinds of features.

as far as the desktop is concerned I can't imagine using anything other than dwm on Linux or *BSD. a really great piece of software.

running Crux on a spare T60 that I toy around with, I like how hands off it is, and I got tired of dealing with portage when it was running Gentoo.

Arch on my desktop.

I've had Openbsd running on those machines and more at various times but the lack of (or pains with) various software made me switch back to Linux land.

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.
