/tech/ - Technology and Computing

Technology, computing, and related topics (like anime)

Downtime was caused by the hosting service's network going down. Should be OK now.

An issue with the Webring addon was causing Lynxchan to intermittently crash. The issue has been fixed.

So is OLED/microLED going to ever get market share, or will desktop users just be stuck scrounging up half-dead CRTs and buying mediocre LCD panels?
6 posts omitted.
>>2463 Not with the advent of Quantom dot displays. Those have all the advantages of SEDs while being more kike friendly in that they can be integrated into existing LCD fabrication methods unlike the more autistic SEDs.
Are there any technologies that could be manufactured by individuals? I assume a lot of new ideas never get into production because they cannot be mass-produced easily. But suppose you only want to manufacture small quantities, would that open up any new doors?
>>2829 That's not how any of this works. Mass production is always far cheaper than individual production, "cannot be mass-produced easily" means it's only two or ten times cheaper rather than a hundred or a million times cheaper. Integrated circuits are in the "million times cheaper" category, the ability to make enormous batches of them at once is the only reason they're economically viable.
quantum dot doesnt fix LCD, it just makes color better. you still get terrible viewing angle issues, anti glare coatings, and pixel response curves >>1301 it's all moot. it doesn't matter how big the screen is, as long as it isn't assballs quality like LCD
>>2830 But suppose there were a manufacturing process that would require a high IQ individual to manufacture a device. Most companies would probably never even attempt to research such ideas, because even if they could sell professional monitors for 10k USD per monitor, they wouldn't be able to get any kind of significant volume, because there wouldn't be enough high-IQ workers. For an individual with the right skillset and the right tools, however, that approach could be doable.

Everything is fucked, because of centralization. I can't get any form of employment if I don't use botnet tools. You have yourselves to thank.
>>2818 >You have yourselves to thank. Are...are you really blaming everyone else for this anon?
>>2818 Nobody except the evil jewish paranoid schizophrenics and their golems plaguing our nations asked for that you fucking retard
>>2819 >>2820 Find me a good paying libre source job I can contribute to the community without subscribing to the botnets.
>>2821 Why are you asking a loaded question? Why should I find you a job? You didn't know the system doesn't like libre source because it exposes and eliminates the (((profits))) and big brother jail society which is the mass surveillance dystopian talmudic assrape they keep burdening and exploiting people with, selling their data like NPC's for some fucked up schizophrenic purpose like OP described? Just like anything else not kosher it won't exactly be advertised on TV. Because the system is about controlling the owners in jails, with the devices they bought, for their own ends, rather than the owners of said purchased being capable of fully controlling and modifying what they paid for if they so wish. It's always about depriving people of freedom. Right now a subset of people are trying and have made small businesses oriented around making open source alternative advances related to hardware such as, phones, motherboards, CPU, peripherals et cetera, for a decent amount of money. What profit they make i have no idea. But if you have the skillset required make a business yourself or maybe try to get a job there by sending an email. This is implying FSF FOSS hardware will suddenly become trendy and not just a very important issue recognized by a small group of people who are not just consumers and who actually care. But who knows, maybe plebs will be tired of this technological judaism in the near future and finally see the importance.

Given that the Mobile World Congress got cancelled and industrial suppliers are starting to feel the lack of cheap imported chinkshit due to all the shutdowns it's as good a time as any to have a thread discussing Corona-chan's antics from a /tech/nician perspective. Summary of recent events: >Apple, Samsung and others shut down their Chinese stores >Wuhan funeral homes recieve around 100 bodies to cremate a day with the fire numbers rising, are understaffed and overworked to the brim >More Chinks are infected and/or dying than can be transported to Hospitals or crematoriums >Smuggling rings and militias formed around Wuhan and possibly other cities, attack helicopter formations spotted flying over neighbourhoods >Hospitals don't have enough Masks or test kits for diagnosing let alone beds to house their patients, now supply lines of general medicinal goods are starting to choke too >PRC economy at a standstill, CCP is paying businesses for now but many companies say they won't survive if it keeps up >Corona cases outside of Chinkland keep rising in number, most of them on cruise ships >Western companies and suppliers growing increasingly concerned at the lack of goods coming from China, automotive production set to be particularly affected due to all the parts produced in Chinkland >On top of all that there have also been reported outbreaks of Bird flu and Swine flu among Chinese livestock >CCP desperately trying to downplay and censor everything with help from the WHO >MWC cancelled as every major participant drops out How will Inthell, AMD, Jewgle and others handle this? The majority of their fabs are situated in the PRC which is coughing with no survivors, they can't meet their production goals if the quarantine measures keep up and moving all their shit to India, South Africa or Venezuela can't be done in a short timeframe.

Does anyone have some good literature or resources on good practices for refactoring languages and creating wrappers and the like? I'd be interested in working on projects like that, now that I'm on forced leave.
>>2727 I'd suggest you investigate TDD Anon. Refactoring is fundamental to that paradigm.

E-readers/e-ink devices Anonymous 12/18/2019 (Wed) 08:08:40 No.1120 [Reply]
Does anyone have insight into e-readers? It seems like the new Kindle Paperwhite's are the best for your money considering they're water proof. Can I use them without ever connecting them to the internet? Unfortunately all the ebay listings are for older models that suck dick and are barely going for under retail price so it's looking like I'm going to have to give amazon my dosh. Apparently the water proof ones have cellular capabilities, is this a security threat? Is there a "thinkpad" of e-readers that I've somehow missed? The only compelling alternative I've seen are the Nook Glowlight models, but they aren't waterproof.

In a desperate attempt to get this /tech/ board going, Lets have a "Questions That Don't Deserve their own thread" thread. I'll try to answer anything I can, and I'm sure there are other people here with more know-how than me, who can help as well. Conveniently, That leads to the first question: Does anyone here have any experience with the transmission-daemon? I've gotten everything set-up for my local server, but I'd like to move all of my currently running torrents to the daemon without adding each torrent file or magnet individually. Is there any way to do this? or a place where currently running torrents are stored?
