Is VR any good for productivity? Is there a system that is reasonably suited for programming/sysadmin work? I'd like to have 9 terminal windows open at the same time, and be able to actually read everything on each of the screens.

Did you play Darknet? I guess something like the node interface in that game could be helpful navigating router & firewall rules.

It depends on the kind of work I guess.
The real bottleneck is likely not information consumption though but input.
You can only press so many buttons per second and most IT nerds can't really touchtype properly.

This brings me to the current missing link for productivity centered UI: We need eye tracking. The eyes have the fastest muscles in the human body and even without immersive displays a proper implementation would greatly enhance tasks.

I don't play video games. I can touch type just fine. I just need to stare at terminal windows for hours on end. Would my eyes get tired doing this through a VR system?

Try a tiling window manager. Larswm is the least effort. If you want customization (lua scripting) you can try ion, but the ion dev is an asshole.

>Would my eyes get tired doing this through a VR system?
With current consumer HMD it's worse than a monitor.

You can try something like M$ Hololens or a cheaper alternative. These projection HMDs are supposed to have no eye strain as you don't have to specifically focus on the content. But it's not nearly as good as the ads for it make it seem. The viewing area is quite small and resolution and contrast are crap.

And finally get a blue light filter.

You can encrypt with 7-zip with AES encryption. It is open source.

One can add files as well. To your archives.

Just need to open your file folder with your passphrase.

I assume one can use a cloud service to upgrade files folders. Simple. Or use a usb, even easier.

So you can easilly save a .txt file. Or withing a folder. Encrypted with AES.
7zip files have been known to lack security. AES256 encryption is
preferable to secure your work, files.

My CRT monitor's power button doesn't work, it just turns on when I plug it in and goes into sleep mode when it's not receiving a signal. Is it bad to just unplug it from the wall while it's in sleep or should I go through the hassle of taking it apart and electrocuting myself to fix the power button.

I really do not think it is the power button. It does happen though. If you will, boot a live linux dvd. That may be a see if it works. I can assure you, it is not the power button. It could be. Just as well. Difficult, don't dig in there. It holds a pretty good charge. Really, you use windows? Or A linux. It has to do with your operating system, less likely with your power supply button.

Whatever the case, black cat is, black cat.

Ok, button does not work, grrr ,windows, reinstall?

My original post was confusing so just ignore it. Sleep mode does wake up, I'm never unable to use the monitor. It's when I'm done using it, after shutting my PC down, the monitor remains on because the power button stopped working. So I was just concerned about never fully powering the monitor down as I want it to last as long as possible because I really enjoy having a good quality CRT and they are a dying breed.

I appreciate you saying i could have a monitor, it's okay though I have a few LCDs and other CRTs (pic related, I have too many cats as well as monitors). Thank you for your response and ideas though my friend

CRTs are fine. Your original post was nothing confusing how you explained it.

Reason I said LCD monitors. Is because, LCD monitors are just fine. I do computer work, a crt is my go-to troubleshooter, for fixing issues. First.

Myself, cats, my clients, like my cats. So that is a + working with people.

I wouldn't have it any other way.

thats your problem for buying "Victure"-Action-Cams.
They are cheap knock-offs with zero support. Basically a scammy GoPro.

Why did you even spend money on this?

Installing Linux (beta) on Chromebook

So I bought a native gentoo device (well, a chromebook)

And I am trying to insall Linux (beta) through the OS settings

It gets almost halfway there and then fails on starting the Linux container (screenshot)

I look in the Chrome OS settings and it appears that Linux is installed

But if I go to the Chrome app shelf and then go down to Linux apps it only has terminal which runs but works a long time with
>Checking the Linux container
and then
>Error starting penguin container: 13
>Launching vmshell failed: Error starting crostini for terminal: 13

I can't type anything in terminal after that but I can run the "vmc start termina" command in crosh and it starts termina when before I had no vmc installed

I've read online that it could be a problem with IPv6 and I change my dns to Google and had the same problem

My OS is and has always been up to date when trying to install Linux (beta)

Been rebooting regularly

Another possible issue is that I use an Xfinity public AP which gives me a dynamic IP

So I'm learning web automation with Kantu. It is giving me an error when I try to export scripts as HTML files that reads, [warning] To run macro from html file, you need to enable "Allow access to file URLs" in extension details page
I don't see any setting to allow Kantu to access URLs in the Firefox GUI. How do I let Kantu access the URL bar? I am using Kantu 4.2.6 on Firefox Developer Edition. I was using Ui.Vision but I couldn't get all my macros to load at once even with loadmacrotree command, so now I am using this depreciated version, but running into the URL access problem.

i suspected a memory failure. using windows' tools and tertiary software, i ruled that out. i tested the hdd aswell. also out. ran malware tests too just in case, all clean
tomorrow im getting a new multimeter to check my psu (which is sorta new, if generic). anything i can use to check my cpu and mobo? shit is driving me crazy

a little background, pc has been malfuncioning for a while, but it got worse since an electric overcharge shot the original psu down. had to buy a new one and take out the mobo for repairs

specs: generic 550w psu
1tb hdd
4gb x2 ddr3 ram
apu a10 5800k cpu
a55bm-a/usb3 mobo
had this thing since 2014

Mistake, it is x64 bit, uses pae to use 32 bit when needed, like 64 bit windows.

windows 10 open 'this pc' and right click properties to see if 32 or 64bit..

Pae allows more than 4 gigs of memory, I believe in 32 bit versions of windows. Was discarded with service pack 2 I believe. But there are workarounds. Win7 saw programs, 'run in xp mode.'

A decent winxp was the 64 bit version. Pretty solid. Run it in a virtual machine. A few other
options work.

In linux via command terminal bash, whatever the command(s')

Look these up, should see x32_64 which would be 64 bit.

>So usenet servers act as one giant cluster?

Hello ngl, I am td. Essentially yes. They are generally collective. (working As a whole.)

There are topic usenet servers that are not intended to work with other servers in the Usenet sense. Some are dedicated to have one or more narrow subjects of interest. Like maybe IBM, mozilla, single topics related only for one or more topics related to the interests of a group or corporation. It is still Usenet.

Larger entities generally have 'server farms' where multiple servers work together where if one server goes down other servers will keep the service working. Think google, microsoft, have massive collective server farms. If a server goes down, it will not fail its user base.
-
Internet providers used to offer Usenet with their service, 90s. But as Usenet got larger, particularly in topics (binaries) it used a lot of bandwidth so ISPS started dropping usenet services. Today they can surely handle the bandwidth to offer Usenet today, but Usenet became mostly forgotten after that.

With the pandemic more people are using the internet, for work, media. There has been no significant decrease in internet performance. Think server farms and backbone providers.

Benefits of Usenet one can Post txt to binary groups to ask for I believe was known as fills. If parts were missing or became corrupted when uploading. Or just talk about what was posted, or anything really. Surely there is a group called alt.binaries.cats, alt.sewing exists. Basically anything one can think of. Reason I speak so much or long about this is because Usenet is very dynamic but unseen or overlooked. Torrents are p2p peer to peer, where you rely on others to seed. While as you noted Usenet is a cluster of servers, tens of thousands across the world working as one collective entity. Torrents can be slow, stuck at whatever % where people ask please seed this torrent. Where Usenet the speed is usually limited to how much bandwidth one has with their ISP. I have set up simple Usenet pull server software that you can run on your own computer and it will act as if it were, a Usenet server, which is what it is. It's fun stuff.

>Uncensored servers may allow anybody to create

not sure if any paid severs allow that but it still
can be done just as well.

Sure, why not. for uncensored services. some servers allow posting, some are
read only. The read only mainly come from free (open) servers. Some servers
are fully open for load testing and to work out possible issues, before going
online as a paid service. Like some established services need to add servers
and will just open a server(s) to make sure things are working well enough to
go online with the other servers, as a cluster..

Seems spam, the first it was posted it was clear to read. Didn't seem useful. Oh well. I have this theory, I have proxied off and on for decades. That some most?, sites that have proxy testers. Test your proxy here, if you have a good proxy, they
sell the good Ip addresses as premium proxies, and dump the sub-standard
ones as a proxy dump. Leaving a few good ones to peak the users interests
to seek a paid premium account. Makes sense to me. Nobody except one person I knew of figured out why I only sought, transparent (throw away) proxies.

Things have likely changed today.
