So, I'm living in an apartment this year for college with three other fellows. Only problem is that the WiFi is some hot garbage, and there's only one Ethernet port out by our front door (which one of us has to use because they can't connect to the WiFi). We were thinking of getting our own router, but I've never setup my own network before. Would we just have to hook up the router to the Ethernet port and configure it through a web browser?

You're retarded. Before /sqt/ we had about a hundred threads a day with people shitting up /g/ with their retarded questions. Now we get tens.
It also improves the answers that people get because having one thread promotes discussion about the best solutions to a problem, instead of just one idiot giving the wrong answer because he was the only one bothered to reply.

Yeahhh.... Windows is really picky about how it gets installed. If you have access to a Windows mahcine, you should run the installer from here to burn it to the flash drive.
You could also install a win10 iso to a Virtual Machine, pass the flash drive to the VM, and burn it from the VM, but that would take hours.

1. Dust it off. Take it apart to make sure there's no dust on the chipset.
2. If it's not already running DDWRT or OpenWRT (or a derivative such as tomato), you should definitely install it because it makes it more stable, and if you add a good cooling solution, you can boost the antenna gain for extra range (That's why you see them with heatsinks and watercooling.

Actually, you're wrong on that one.

I actually really like /sqt/. It's pretty helpful, even when it takes a good bit of time for my question(s) to be answered. Same goes for the QTDDTOT threads.

I just don't like the faggot OP who keeps using small questions thread instead, and the other faggot OPs who don't keep the original post, but less so.

If you were in the true /sqt/ yesterday, the stupid questions thread, you might see just how dedicated one faggot can be when he doesn't like something, and you might be surprise when you see that it's the OP and that these people still exist, to some extent.

And yes, there is a difference.

Xubuntu uses XFCE as the desktop environment, and Ubuntu uses Unity shit. The former is less resource-intensive than the latter.

Also, Xubuntu doesn't have the Amazon botnet bullshit that Ubuntu has, and neither do the other *ubuntus, to my knowledge.

Also, Xubuntu really does look a lot better.

Pretty sure it does. I never really used the feature (BTN trumps most streaming services in my experience and pretty much just liked Prime for the free fast delivery on everything) but I tried it like once and it worked, unless they removed it recently.

Not a big OCer but the way I understand it is that you keep incrementing the clock speed until it becomes unstable (IE driver crash, artifacts and the like). You then increase the voltage into the card to make it stable again. You do this all while keeping an eye on your temps, under 80 is pretty accepted unless you want to be more conservative. Look up the accepted upper limit on voltage for your card so you dont fry it because thats where you really have to be careful.

Basically type in your card and overclock guide into google and you'll find what you want.

Yes, but a DE is a whole collection of software that ties well into each other. If you start with Unity, then install KDE, all the programs you have won't be as neatly tied into your DE as the equivalent KDE programs will be.

- MS-DOS 6.21

I managed to do some basic file operations through DOS and played in QBASIC a bit.

But in all seriousness, if your system can handle it, go for Kubuntu. It takes up a bit moar resources because it uses KDE, but they basically function the same.

I fell in love with the way that Xubuntu is, though.

I made an animation with a gradient in After Effects, exporting it in H.264 creates banding in the gradient, should I be using a different format? Does it matter as I will be uploading it to YouTube, will it compress it regardless?

how the fuck do I get those icons on the bottom similar to OSX?
Also, how do I get that task manager thing that WIndows had so I can check how much RAM i'm using and my CPU? and other tasks in the background?

where can I still get a mouse like this? I've scoured the entire catalogue of my preferred retailer and there is nothing like it

it lasted me 7 years, now it is occasionally losing connection for a few seconds before I hear the device bloop and it's back. happens on multiple usb ports and almost exclusively when I'm playing shooters and moving it a lot

So I decided to start reading "Code: The Hidden Language of Hardware and Software" and I can't understand what is the point of the OR logic gate. Wouldn't the same thing happen if they were to connect the wires together? I tried to draw a picture showing what I meant.

>> No.56206985

In case it isn't clear, the top one (as far as my knowledge goes) is doing the same thing as the bottom one, but without the OR logic gate.

Somebody call the waaaambulance!

You have to create a new panel, or taskbar, or whatever.

Then you'll be able to resize it at will.

Transmission, but I haven't used anything else.

Well, don't I look silly.

Like that's hard to do. You can't even breath without reminding people of how much of a dumbass you are.

>> No.56207168

Well, in order to remind people of how much of a dumbass I am, I would imagine that one of the prerequisites is to go outside!

Which is, of course, one of the many things that I simply refuse to do.
