Re: Turning your back on windows

I don't want to have to regurgitate Gentoo Hardened specs, so sorry for the link drop.

I got your point, Dodoid. I was just saying, systemd isn't offering any Linux distro running it any pluses for security.

Re: The Problem with Apple

The largest reasonable laptop SSD is 2TB. The largest reasonable laptop HDD is 3 or 4 TB. Stop peddling this shit that SSDs are tiny and useless. My MBP has 1TB ssd, I'm sure apple will offer a larger one in the future. Yes, they are more expensive than HDD. Yes, you can just buy a $80 chromebook i...

Re: Turning your back on windows

Certainly sounds problematic, but do you believe it is enough of an issue that Qubes use of systemd makes it less secure (even with virtualization and all the security stuff) than something like Devuan? Of course, no code is perfect, but I would think Qubes still has the advantage, even with system...

Re: Turning your back on windows

So, in a normal init process for BSD init you have ~2000 lines of code. In the systemd core code, main.c alone has 2300 lines. That doesn't include the full PID 1. So we already know from the headers, functions and everything imported that you're dealing with code a magnitude bigger and with a magni...

Re: Turning your back on windows

Dodoid, let me explain the systemd architecture so you can understand why it's vulnerable: Systemd's PID 1 consists of two pieces, essentially - systemd-init and systemd-supervisor. systemd-init is essentially the role of sys v or bsd init, where as systemd-supervisor acts as an interface to cgroups...

I have some Fiber Channel cables I'm not using but I don't know if shipment from the US to the UK would make them worth it

Re: Free: SGI 20" CRT Trinitron Monitor GDM-20E21 - New York

CRTs are great if they're have good quality tubes. in this case I suspect a worn out tube was the cause of it being dim, you can up the intensity of the beam but that just burns it out faster. I have plans to eventually get a CRT projector and I have a few PVMs and small monitors left. I try to pick...

Re: Dallas chips

Maybe some white lithium grease would be worth doing on existing ones, or silicone paste. Something like that should help reduce the friction/opening force.

Re: The Problem with Apple

I choose Apple hardware specifically because I don't have to dick around with it. And as far as "expandability" goes, who stores more than a few dozen gigabytes of data locally anymore? I can't remember the last time I filled up my laptop's SSD. I've got my music collection, and that's ab...

Re: Dallas chips

As long as you seat it properly, I've never had an issue with any of the O2 release mechanisms and I've owned five.

Not to say that proper seating and operation is easy. It's not.

I just don't like the macguyver ways being suggested here. They trouble me a little.

I recently installed 8.1 EI Pro without skipping a beat. Notably zippier, too!

Re: your latest purchase

Here's the PSR-36 I purchased, after a wipedown. The PSS-470 I bought developed problems quite soon sadly so I'll have to take it apart and see what's wrong. I'm going to probably end up desoldering every board and dish washing them. The PSR-36 sounds great, works 100% and came with a case, but it's...
