Re: your latest purchase

As a relative newcomer to the android universe, I don't understand why Sony phones aren't more popular. (X Compact, here) I actually like the OK Google. It's like siri except without cotton stuffing in her ears. Still useless, but at least it works :) It is similar in appearance to the lumia 920 whi...

Re: A Guide on Your Options for non-x86 Computers (2017)

So there was a big hubbub about the ME this week. https://twit.tv/shows/security-now/episodes/610 Since my laptop doesn't have the vPro processor (i7-6500u), doesn't have a built-in ethernet jack (there is one in the dock, through a TB3 bridge etc....), an aftermarket wifi chip, etc, I assume I am p...

But it's an uphill sell to be calling a g4 'modern'.

hey Dipshit ! Did you know that in a year you've hassled more people than the entire group of moderators put together in the entire existence of nekochan ? Don't you have anything to do over there at Mintru ? Meanwhile contributing not one thing to Irix, to nekochan, to the planet as a whole ? I du...

Re: A Guide on Your Options for non-x86 Computers (2017)

And lo, several someones have written Emacs extensions to turn it into a spreadsheet...every time I make a joke about Emacs, I go and look it up afterward and find out that it's actually the case. I thought you were being serious, I certainly wasn't going to take that bet. But there is one called D...

My "text editor" is a pen and notebook. I prefer unlined sketchbooks.

Re: A Guide on Your Options for non-x86 Computers (2017)

For what we do I would probably be better off using matlab, but I like excel. Usually, if I feed it too many numbers I can walk away for a couple minutes and come back and it will be done. This is pretty rare and it normally returns a result in a couple seconds. The same cannot be said for google sh...

They could be paying apple or microsoft the same price for what is largely the same product. IT has picked and purchased, not my decision obviously.

I only use the email and calendar part. I use excel a lot, google spreadsheets would be brought to its knees in seconds.

Re: your latest purchase

There's a surprising number of Nekochanners who are into synthesizers, actually. I have no idea why this should be the case, but there you are. Hmmmm.... would it be possible to create a 'how did you get into synthesizers' thread? I found out recently one of my favourite prog-rock groups had more t...

Re: A Guide on Your Options for non-x86 Computers (2017)

Apple will switch to ARM for low end MacBooks once the economy of doing so makes sense. It makes sense for iPad and tablets, it doesn't really make sense for MacOSX, therefore I expect it will be 'iOS-laptop'. Something you can use for browsing, taking pictures, listening music, and videochat Apple...

Regardless, the body may stay shiny but it takes a lot of proactive work to keep them from disintegrating underneath.

So this is probably still OT but I'm just wondering aloud what the possibility of an ARM macbook will be in the next few years. I mean, the ipad pro is as powerful
(if not moreso) as the macbook already.

Which laptop has the best(1) keyboard and input device(2) ? (1) I define "best" as comfortable and ergonomic (2) trackball, touchpad, trackpad Keep in mind I'm typing this on my w520 at work, but thinkpads would be a distant second to the razer blades. The blade pro also has the pad to th...

Re: How do you explain....

I have an old Kvaser pci card with two CANs on it, it could go in a shoehorn. Drivers shouldn't be too complicated. You can get an ELM327 with a serial port on the other end.
