>I'm afraid for the color depth with a TN, since i have to work with/draw pictures.

CRTs have infinite contrast in essence, if you have the space find one. But, if you really need an IPS LCD, I hear the Dell UltraSharp series is decent.


>the only problem with IPS is shit black level

They also have ghosting, backlight bleed, input lag, and glow issues.

>Changelog July 11: HookTube no longer uses YouTube api for anything, and most features (channel page, search, related videos, etc) are gone. No choice.

They were sent a cease and desist by Google according to some /b/ anon. I can't find a source for that though.

>You have to search for a channel yourself now, though. You can't click on them directly from the videos anymore.

I can. All of the features are back. HOWEVER, >>942989, it seems like hooktube's video fetching itself isn't working. Guess he had to pick between the site doing the thing it was supposed to do and having features? He hasn't updated the changelog, his gab or his twitter. Wonder wtf is going on.



I hope to god he's just experimenting right now, Hooktube was my last way of viewing YouTube without giving shekels and data to Jewgle. If the site stays this way I'll have to stop using YT altogether.



Well you had to allow scripts for "googlevideo.com" in order for Hooktube to work. What's the difference (tracking-wise) between allowing scripts from that domain, which is clearly run by jewgle, and allowing scripts from "youtube.com"?

I emailed him asking about it and this was his reply:


>I updated the changelog a few mins ago.

>There are 50 ways I could get around this from a technical point of view but their lawyers are angling to sue me and are going to comb everything I say and do.

>The only smart thing to do is moving on and finding new tactics

So I guess there's no legal way for him to keep doing the video fetching, presumably because he ran ads? Here's the new changelog:

>July 16: YouTube api is back but mp4 <video> is replaced with the standard YT video embed. HookTube is now effectively just a light-weight version of youtube and useless to the 90% of you primarily concerned with denying Google data and seeing videos blocked by your governments.

>Special thanks to the many people who created plugins and extensions for hooktube, /g/, the five people who donated anonymously, and BitChute for working hard on a real YouTube alternative. See you in the next project.

>It was a good run, 1,5 years. Started as just a quickly made addition to the norbot project, and within long the site averaged 30k uniques a day, 60k on a really good day. Of course YouTube Legal became an inevitability at that point.

>rest in pieces



I'd rather not use Youtube at all than give Google shekels.


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.

Sounds like (You) are what's fundamentally broken, m8.


I have 1000 projects, tasks, plans.

How to manage them, prioritize them, plan them for specific simple tasks and actions?

How to plan life and projects into long-term future and execute and finish them?

Also, how to force myself to do what is most important for now, not what is easiest and most pleasurable? what drugs pills or system would force me to that? how to become terminator?

and how to get a lot of energy speed and hypomania so I can do a lot of tasks fast? How to explode?

Back in May, it was revealed that an anonymous donor was giving the GNOME Foundation a cool million bucks. For some in the Linux community -- including yours truly -- there were mixed emotions. On the one hand, it was positive news -- money makes things happen, and it should make the GNOME Project better. On the other hand, the anonymous nature of the donation was troubling -- what if the donor was an evil person or company? GNOME users and developers deserve to know who or what is funding the project, right?

While we still do not know the identity of the donor, we do know how the GNOME Foundation will be putting some of the money to work. The foundation is using part of the funds to hire four additional employees.

"An anonymous donor has pledged to donate up to $1,000,000 over the next two years, some of which will be matching funds. The GNOME Foundation is grateful for this donation and plans on using these funds to increase staff to streamline operations and to grow its support of the GNOME Project and the surrounding ecosystem. While the GNOME Foundation has maintained its position as a proponent of the GNOME Project, growth has been limited. With these funds, the GNOME Foundation will be able to expand and lead in the free software space," says the GNOME Foundation.

Neil McGovern, Executive Director, GNOME Foundation explains, "These positions are key to ensuring that the Foundation remains sustainable and that we are able to support the community in key areas. It is my hope that we can continue to grow the Foundation so that these posts will continue to be funded, but to allow further positions to become available."

What are these four positions? The foundation shares them below.

Microsoft owns the desktop with Windows -- it is undeniable. You know what? That's fine. But the success of Windows is not a failure for Linux. What I mean to say is, the open source kernel is omnipresent, whether you know it or not.

To highlight the ubiquitous nature of Ubuntu in particular, Canonical today releases an all-new infographic showing how this distribution "connects everything." I urge you to give it a look, as it will open your eyes to just how important Ubuntu -- and Linux overall -- really is. Apparently, this is an update to a previous infographic released in 2016, refreshed for 2018 following the release of Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic Beaver.

ALSO READ: Canonical shares analytics from Ubuntu Linux desktop user data collection

"As highlighted in the Ubuntu is Everywhere infographic to coincide with the 16.04 LTS, Ubuntu is used by millions across every sector and technology imaginable. Two years on, and with 18.04 LTS now released, we take a new look at how Ubuntu has evolved and is at the heart of emerging technologies including AI, blockchain, robotics and more. We also share the growth of Ubuntu’s cloud presence and how Ubuntu continues to pervade multiple industries, devices and is used by millions globally," says Canonical.

The Ubuntu-maker shares the infographic below. After you read through it, please tell me what aspects you found most interesting in the comments.

Debian 9 "Stretch" was released over a year ago -- time really flies! Since then, the wildly popular Linux distribution has been downloaded by countless users.

Today, the 5th "point" release becomes available. In other words, Debian Linux "Stetch" has reached an important milestone -- version 9.5 stable. The operating system is always improving with security updates and bug fixes, and 9.5 is no exception here. In fact, it includes a patch for Spectre V2. Also of significance, the Debian Installer has been given an update.

"The Debian project is pleased to announce the fifth update of its stable distribution Debian 9 (codename 'Stretch'). This point release mainly adds corrections for security issues, along with a few adjustments for serious problems. Security advisories have already been published separately and are referenced where available," says The Debian Project.

ALSO READ: Debian-based Raspbian Linux distribution for Raspberry Pi gets major update

The project further says, "Please note that the point release does not constitute a new version of Debian 9 but only updates some of the packages included. There is no need to throw away old 'stretch' media. After installation, packages can be upgraded to the current versions using an up-to-date Debian mirror. Those who frequently install updates from security.debian.org won't have to update many packages, and most such updates are included in the point release."

Quite frankly, the number of updated packages is quite large -- if you are a Debian user, I urge you to read the full changelog here. You can see the long list of changes, not only for 9.5, but all "Stretch" releases.

Despite the developers saying you don't have to create new install media, if you still want to do so, you can grab an ISO here.

Apple is making huge news today with the refresh of its wildly popular MacBook Pro laptops. The portable computers are more powerful than ever and feature a quieter keyboard. In addition, the company will be selling an optional eGPU made by Blackmagic that will transform the notebooks into graphical powerhouses.

MacBook Pro computers are very well-made, but they are quite expensive too. Even if you buy the Apple Care protection plan, it is a wise idea to invest in a case or bag for it too. Today, the iPhone-maker releases new leather sleeves that should protect both the 13 and 15-inch MacBook Pro laptops from scratches and dents. As you can imagine, since it is an official Apple product, it is rather pricey.

"First introduced with MacBook, Apple leather sleeves are now available for the 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro in Saddle Brown, Midnight Blue and, for the first time, Black. Designed with high-quality leather and a soft microfiber lining for extra protection, the sleeves are a perfect complement to MacBook Pro for users on the go," says Apple.

The 13-inch sleeve can be bought here and the 15-inch sleeve can be had here. The former costs $179.99, while the latter is priced $20 higher at $199.99. They are compatible with the 2016, 2017, and 2018 "Thunderbolt 3" MacBook Pro laptops.

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?

Anyone here using Dvorak instead of QWERTY? I'm considering switching because I've heard it helps with pain related to carpal tunnel. Wondering if that's just a meme or if it's just marketing. Did your WPM go up after adjusting to the new layout? How easy is it to go back and forths between QWERTY and other layouts once you learn them?

The only reason I didn't attempt making the switch years ago was constantly using multiple machines that I didn't have full control over. Now I'm old and my wrists have totally gone to hell. I get pain and numbness after a few minutes of constant typing which is starting to slow me down and causing me a lot of concern. I'm actually having to manage the pain with opioids now to get through my daily work loads.

>It's not obvious to me that optimizing the most commonly typed characters closer to the home row actually does improve typing speed/injury prevention.

Dvorak user here. Have been using it full time for 3 years now. My typing speed has not improved but typing feels much nicer.



>Setting up a key-symbol translation layer or redefining all hotkeys to make applications work naturally seems like a nightmare.

You just end up never doing that. When I started I felt like oh now I gotta rebind everything. In reality you will find using bindings in their new positions work fine.



I used to shitpost with my nose when my carpal tunnel was really bad



This. The only thing I rebinded was C-x to C-t in emacs



I got carpal tunnel of the nose but it only happened on every second Tuesday of the month. Switching to dvorak cured it.

It's literally 99% of all racecar drivers. The other 1% are the few who are actually in it of their own will. And without a ton of skill to get sponsorships as well as their passion for racing they'll always be limited to one shitty car and spending all their remaining dayjob shekels on new tires.
