Hey guys, I recently started a computer science class in college and my networking teacher who is the head of the IT department wants us to impress him with the best personalization of our desktops.

> inb4 impress him with your computer programming skills as opposed to flashy images

No anons, No. The motto that he always repeats is that it's important to be "all rounded". He's seen lots of autist computer geeks who are geniuses at what they do but are pretty much mediocre/shit at nearly everything else in their life (social skills, organisation of themselves, writing CV's).

I would like to show off images that highlight an interest in tech along with high quality photography; so if I may ask you kindly to post your favorite images

> I would to the other chan but those fags banned me since June of this year and my shitty ISP hasn't renewed my "dynamic" I.P. address for 4 months.

A modern computer is an adult's toy. It is a gateway to entertainment. If the computer is not pleasing to the eye of the user, then its entertaining value will be diminished. Smear a computer with feces, and most people won't even want to use it because it stinks so badly; in this case, the computer's usefulness has dropped to zero.

Anonymous 17/10/27(Fri)16:15 No. 16570 ID: 012486

Your entire argument hinges on the premise that a computer must be within eyesight of the user in order for them to use it, which is an undemonstrated assertion. You can always hide an unpleasant computer under a table, inside a cupboard, or even in a different room.

Additionally, this is a non sequitur:
>If the computer is not pleasing to the eye of the user, then its entertaining value will be diminished.
This is like saying that the quality of a movie is affected by the appearance of the theater's entrance.

personalization of the desktop doesn't sound like a assignment....

if you want to make it personal, you need to take the picture yourself. There is nothing special about a good quality pic from the web.

Do you mean the Latin alphabet?

Anonymous 17/11/23(Thu)02:48 No. 16582 ID: ca57ba

It's actually Polish, which uses the Latin alphabet. It's missing a lot of the marks over the letters though, like in księżyc for moon.

Although we think our data is safe, we often give chunks of it away to third parties without the proper knowledge of how that information is stored and used. And we also don’t have a clue about the most important thing of all, how do companies keep our data safe. In most cases, it was discovered that our data isn’t as safe as we thought. Just look at Yahoo, and the company’s two massive data leaks; back in 2013 and, 2014 more than 1.5 billion user accounts were affected by all kinds of personal data being compromised. Users’ real names, passwords, email addresses, dates of birth, and telephone numbers were stolen, making the breach the biggest one in history.

b) False

"False" is not the same as "false".

Since false is in quotations i assume it refers to false as in untrue and not answer B, i cannot incorrectly answer the question because i dont have the answer key, therefore my choice is A because i assume i know the correct choice.

c=nu*lambda; nu=frequency and lambda=wavelength
The unit of frequency is cycles per second and that of wavelength is a displacement. Therefore, dimensional analysis provides you with displacement per second. Also, many electric and magnetic fields travel at speeds different from the speed of light, both faster and slower. Faster ones make it out of black holes, which ones depends on the escape velocity of black holes. The question you want to ask is how can we know theoretically that the matter eaten by the black hole conducts, and well, which we know from the electric and magnetic fields that escape from it near the axis of rotation.

quantum physics is stupid. waves, quants, photons. blah blah. it doesn't make any sense. physics in this regard is a giant bloated mess full of convenient mathematical tricks, but there is actually no real understanding, because no real observation can take place at this scope.

So, I have a question regarding physics and mathematics. Between the two, which would give me more "smart sounding shit." I don't mean learning it to brag, I mean stuff like pure mathematics sounding totally abstract to normal people. I just want to be in a different world basically. Kind of like induced autism? Or like a constant high but without drugs. Pic unrelated

Physics on account of exotic entities like black holes. Astrophysics is known as an exotic hard science, as is Cosmology. They just sound cool on the lonesome there of. Nuclear Physics and Particle Physics and Chemical Physics and Subatomic Physics just sound cool also. Muons, gluons, quarks, and the like also sound good. I do not know why, probably because I know more about it, but I believe Physics has more pizzazz than mathematics.

>Bosavi woolly rat: 82cm 1.5kg
>Kimberley Mueller: 26cm 0.3kg
The Bosavi woolly rat belongs to Mallomys, not to Rattus, which is the genus the word "rat" refers to if not further specified.

>Rat (informant)
>one who reveals confidential information in return for money
Oh, I see. So when you say "rat", you really mean "snitch". That leaves me a bit confused as to why you'd bring up a species of non-human animal, all of which are incapable of snitching on anyone.
Also, the statement "anything that can be done to a snitch can be done to a human being" is either a) tautological, or b) undemonstrable. a) if the word "snitch" refers exclusively to humans; b) if it can also refer to non-human creatures that may capable of snitching at an unspecified point in the future.

/sci/ give me some "edgy" SSID ideas, I can have up to four or five on my WRT54Gv5 with DD-WRT. I also figured out I can up the power to about 1.6 watts, but cannot get the -o command to turn on "override" where you can set basically any Tx power. Also I can use channel 12 13 and 14 freely :)

Other than SSID ideas that are "edgy" can you think of any illegal (in the US in general or wherever) SSIDs? Just for lulz.

Amateur; Create a captive portal, fill the login page with images of hardcore scat or something equally disturbing, name the SSID something inconspicuous like "The Bensons family wifi" and leave it running unprotected. Anyone who connects in an attempt to leach your internet will be met with a wall of scat the moment they open their browser.

For dbl-lulz name the wifi "Starbucks free wifi" and leave it running within range of one of their coffee shops, fireworks will fly!
