Sun, 2018-10-07 03:58

I just did something today I was amazed to see possible, all thanks to Linux, so I was wondering what are the little things that make it so cool for you all.

Open-Source Video Editor

Sun, 2018-10-07 02:49

I don't really know if it's a thing (it probably is) Someone should make a video editor similar to Adobe Premiere or VEGAS so I wouldnt have to use Windows to run Adobe but if something like this already exists please let me know. Thank you.

Making the switch from Apple

Sun, 2018-10-07 02:02

I have used Unix/BSD/Linux for ~2 decades. I've hopped back and forth for the last 10 between Linux and MacOS as a daily/work driver. With the recent advent of the new MBP 18's (yes, I foolishly bought one) and all of the 0days and jailed environment I feel it's time to move on and never look back.

I've pulled this switch prior a couple of times but didn't have the time to devote to get my workflow down (Dev/Sec/Ops) which I feel will be fine on a Linux distbut if ro (Likely debian stable or perhaps something low maintenance like Mint).

Now I'm stuck with this 3600$ Macbook which kernel panics on Docker/Vbox and so many other things due to the i9 arch. Obviously going to sell it somewhere, thought Craigslist is sketch af. (Should you know of a place to sell a 2 month old machine with Applecare+, please let me know and if it sells I'll send you some btc).

Anyways, I work for a company that is heavily involved in open source and it makes me proud to daily-drive an OS which follows that vibe.

I'm wondering if anyone can provide a recommendation for a solid yet lightweight laptop. Here are the choices in order:

LG Gram 7 (A colleague noted Deb anything will work)

X1 Carbon Thinkpad (Had one before but bad memory caused an RMA and it took 3 months to get a replacement, so I'm hesitant)

<insert your choice here>

I prefer to keep the budget at >= 2k USD. Should you have any suggestions I'd really appreciate it.

As well, I will be evac'ng Apples ecosystem thus will be looking for a different phone. I'm sure I can find a sub that will help but if you want to PM me phone suggestions, that as well would be appreciated.

We always say that OSS symbolizes the spirit of sharing and contribution. But how much of it is actually artistic pride ?

Sat, 2018-10-06 23:11

As in, how many times do people share some code just because they're proud of their inner thoughts ?

And do you consider that they are the same ?

RHCLI - A Robinhood Client for the command line

Sat, 2018-10-06 22:45

Posted this on r/opensource and got no love, I'm really looking for feedback on how to make the cli better both in terms of cli interface and the way output is displayed. I am aware that PHP is not the best language for the job but I had to write a couple classes in PHP (in regards to securities, buys and sells) for a work project a couple months back.

A lot of stuff still needs to be done, a lot of the code is mixed between OOP and procedural at the moment as I wanted to quickly get an applet I could use to look at my portfolio while working or at school without it being too obvious :P, I'm going to finish the buys and sells interface this weekend making it a "basic" application with all the absolutely needed functionality; with that said the entire project will likely be rewritten in the coming months once I get the time to properly sit down and design good data structures to build the classes around.

You can view details about securities or list the top 100 most popular, or you can login which will set the "default argument" of the app to show your portfolio and capital (and I'm working on a simple cli graph that will show a daily chart) so after logging in simply typing `rhcli` will display a similar interface as the RH app.

Login's are a bit annoying as of right now because it's done through CLI, I'm hoping to change that to an interactive login soon.

Is it a good idea to install Gentoo on a weak machines?

Sat, 2018-10-06 19:56

I have got a few weak machines such as an Asus EEE PC and an old desktop with following parameters:

  • Power supply: Tracer Lux TRO-788 400W
  • Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-VM900M
  • Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E4300 1,8 GHz
  • RAM: 1 GB DDR2 533/Kl
  • Hard drives:
  • - 3 TB Seagate,
  • SD card reader
  • Samsung DVD-/+R/RW
  • Radeon X800 GTO 256MB
  • Floppy disk drive

I love Gentoo <3 but it takes a lot of time to compile everything. Is it a good idea install Gentoo on weak machines or better try install Slackware, FreeBSD?

Goodbye Dual Boot System!

Sat, 2018-10-06 17:22

My personal computer has been a dual boot system - Mint and Windows - for about three years now. It started out as an experiment in Linux and quickly turned into an exercise in installing three quadrillion incompatible updates on the rare occasion I booted into Windows.

Last night, I finally found the courage to torch the Windows install altogether. I don't think I'm going to miss it even a little. That's all: carry on and have a great day. :)
