Honestly I don't know how much I can trust someone who uses jpeg on an image with a 2 color palette. https://harelang.org/mascot.jpg

Adds a bunch of ugly compression artifacts and actually makes the filesize bigger than if they had just used a lossless format. PNG related, it's way smaller and looks better.

I didn't make it past the rabbit.

Cheeky cunt.
Does Tom own /tech/ or is it some anon?

What is a nice theme to use for this board? I'm tired of the default themes.

excuse me, a winfag coming through...

story: i had much more fun using windows than linux. i get to play my old childhood games, be productive, and overall enjoy my time.
though i'm not going to lie, linux is more solid and versatile.

why are you tripfagging

>desktop as a home folder
This should be a felony

Curiously, there is no windows flag (or macOS for that matter). Only some linux and BSDs
No children in the wallpaper, nice.
One of those windows running pipes or cmatrix would be a cool gimmick to have going 24/7. But when I ran i3, I didn't see an obvious way to keep a window stickied in the background. So my desktop ended up quite boring.

1. newsboat (cli): an rss/atom feed reader. (looking for a good alternative.)

2. transmission-daemon (cli): a bittorrent client for all your torrent management needs. along with transmission-remote, i recommend using its web-interface at localhost:9091.

3. nnn (cli): a very fast file manager. i haven't tried vifm, but it also seems like a good alternative, if you are willing to invest some time in getting familiar with the keybindings and doing a little bit of configuration.

4. links (cli, gui): an excellent web-browser with enough features. (there're good alternatives like w3m, elinks, lynx that i haven't tried yet.) (note that you can use it with transmission-cli to add torrents from sites like 1337x.to without the annoying popups and ads.)

5. youtube-dl (cli): a small software to download videos from a variety of streaming sites. you can use it in combination with mpv to stream videos with a minimum cpu usage.

6. gallery-dl (cli): a small software to download photos from a variety of sites. i think ripme is a good alternative. 

7. imv (cli): probably the best image viewer out there. a good alternative is feh.

8. tmux (cli): a terminal multiplexer. has a lot of features like tmux-resurrection that allows you to restore sessions (and programs) the way they were left even after shutting down your machine.

9. htop (cli): a good system monitor written in lua. better alternative than top.

10. misc: wget, curl, aria2, fzf, ueberzug, blender, gimp, inkscape, krita, vivaldi, firefox, freecad, qbittorrent, xclip, scrot, xbanish, unclutter, termite, st, xterm, instaloader, tuir, tiktok-scraper, blackbox, dwm, dmenu, surf, qutebrowser, xdman,

the best operating systems. everything else is trash.
I like slackware and wish I could use it more often, but Microsoft Teams only runs on Debian-based distributions so I have to stick with that for now. Funny how computer science programs make you use retarded software.
void's been shit ever since the coup. dependency creep all over the dang place.

looking books that talks about making system like this specifically
or something liek sega arcade stuffs (power drift, space harrier, air rescue, aqua jack so on etc) especially the physics model and how stuff sticks and not fall thru the floors despite the gaps between things and maybe lack of polygon meshes?

perhaps the behind the scene/making of logic…
hopefully includes several model/solutions of troubleshooting the same thing of why and whynots

Thank you!
what a funny face

Getting good takes effort. If you have money you should pay Indians to do the work for you instead.
