Vim

No.75349855 ViewReplyOriginalReport
I tried out Vim for a couple of hours and I deeply regret it. Not only is it retarded to navigate with hjkl, which doesn't even align with the typing right hand position which rests on jkl;, but you also need to press insert to even start typing. I can't imagine how many keystrokes have been wasted on this garbageware. And if that wasn't bad enough, it cryptomines you PC to fund the breeding of 60 IQ animals in Uganda.

why are certs such a joke?

Last year I completed MCSA for Windows server 2016, and the test was stupid hard. Not hard like "I really need to learn this stuff to pass" but more like "these questions can't be answered with any certainly, no matter how well you know the material".

The only way to pass was to download the latest bank of questions and memorize the answers. God help you if you memorized the *previous* bank of questions, those answers are now wrong. Also, you could only get the latest bank of questions from one of those shady "Certification Education Institute" types, which means "pay up".

The cert system is broken, where you can only pass by cheating. Everyone who passed, cheated.

I actually know IIS really well, use it everyday for my job, and I had to cheat to pass.

What the fuck, /g/?

Now that /g/ is falling to the AMD meme (like me), is there some way to disable AMD's ME equivalent?

I bought a sub to Nord VPN, obviously i then immediately discovered 4chin blocks it. Decided I will just make my own since it should be a good learning experience. I'm trying to wrap my around the following.

1.) If i setup my own server that's physically in my home (i.e. old Thinkpad in the basement running a VPN program), how would that work since the server is still physically behind my router/default gateway so wouldn't it share the same public IP address as every other device on my home network? And i'd have no ability to manipulate geo-location since the server is in the same physical location?

2.) If i were to purchase virtual hosting/domain name and then run the VPN software on that remote server, would it really be "secure" since a 3rd party company owns that server and is surely logging everything? My ISP would just see that i'm connected to "myshittyvpn.com" and not the website i'm actually accessing on the end of the connection, but for example Digitalocean who i rent the virtual server space from would be able to see everything i was visiting.

I'm just trying to find solution where i can setup and use a VPN that i have the most control over. Having a dynamic IP would be great as a workaround for bans, etc.

Poorfag technology stories

Let's talk about poorfag things we have done. It should be interesting.

When I was a kid, my father gave me 350 euros to buy a computer. I bought the cheapest Acer piece of shit I found, and it was mostly okay. Just very slow.

We did not have money for an internet connection, but I found a very weak public Wi-Fi network that I could barely connect to. You could barely do anything with it. Its download speed was something like 2 kB/s, and the connection dropped constantly. It was maddening, but it was the only thing I had.

I had lots of computer magazine CDs with freeware on them. One of them had an old Opera version, and that was like a blessing. It was the only browser that was able to even load basic webpages.

I lived like this for two years. To read the news, I opened Opera, tried to load my local newspaper's website, and then stopped the thing from loading when I saw text. If you tried to load even the basic .css of the website, the thing would shit itself, instantly.

I downloaded and played lots of DOS abandonware games with a download manager that I got from another disk. This was good since it was able to continue downloading the file after the connection dropped. A 5 MB file would take a full evening to download.
