>>494 What's to say the people with good setups are neccasarily NEETs, sure this site has a lot of NEETs but I'm sure at least one person who browses this site has a job.
>>495 Hustler mentality, NEET lifestyle here I guess it now is moreso autistic NEET mentality, I was offered a job to maintain the back-end of a server written in C but because I am writing a big personal project I did not want to do it. Sorry mom, I will find a job one day.

>>510 That does not sound really concrete and thought out... Have you ever even met a person who "learnt a skill" and got a good living out of it or done it yourself?

Is it possible the change the icons set for the peer flags in qbittorrent?
>>472 qbittorrent is open source (you dont need to read the code though), find in what directory its looking for the icons and swap the picture out for something to your liking >I mean there are presets I saw somewhere sometime on the internetz You should be able to find that too unless they did some web-based bs, in that case there is a forum you can ask in: forum.qbittorrent.org

Recommendations for Windows laptops similar in appearance to the iBook G3 It seems like such a thing should exist with how the other computer makers love copying off of Apple, but I'm having a hard time finding any

How did some of you learn to code? My attention span is literally worse than a toddler

>>427 By sitting down and coding. Learn by reading and doing
>>427 I am having some of the same problems but am just trying to do projects on topics I am interested in. FOr instance I am making an IRC client in c++.

What was your first Linux distro? Over a decade ago, on my shitty vista laptop, I flashed Gentoo on to it, because people said it was best to start with in a chatroom I was in... I ended up figuring it out somehow though.

>>48 Debian 10 XFCE I was in university where we learned Linux shell commands, using a program called 'Bash on Ubuntu'. I found it nonsensical firstly because I thought the command line felt so archaic and secondly because we were still using Windows all things considered. So at home I decided to dig deeper, because there was no way Linux was still just a terminal. I learned how to use VirtualBox, got Debian and was greeted with this. I fell in love with it fast.

Do you still use CRT monitors? I do
9 posts and 3 images omitted.
I have a couple in storage that were going to be thrown out. I've missed out on higher quality ones. My mother threw out our big CRT TV against my wishes. If you want a monitor with the CRT aesthetic, there's the Checkmate monitors.
>>187 >My mother threw out our big CRT TV against my wishes. My dad did too Not too long ago, I saw one of our neighbors throw out their old CRT on their lawn so I took it
>>113 1. High refresh rate (smoooooth ) 2. 4:3 (and other smaller aspect ratios) paired with the low resolution and that soft glow = cozy 3. Nostalgia
>>103 I have a similar monitor plus an actual CRT for a 2 monitor setup

I've been using CRTs from 2020 till beginning of this year. If you use it too much, it can hurt your eyes, I've felt this. I usually use my computer for idk 15 hours/day, so this can be a pain in the ass. Now I'm using a LED 27'inch monitor with nice colors and it was the best thing I've done. I love CRTs and it's aesthetic, but I don't think it's suitable for me anymore. Here's one of my old photos using it.

>>387 >>389 Thank you both! It's really comfortable so far. The terminal is nothing scary now. :D

I know some people like to bad-mouth Linux Mint, but it eased me into it understanding things and it's pretty comfortable for what it is. Put it on my ancient, dying laptop and it runs nicely.
>>429 I can't see the reason to talk down about Linux Mint when it's literally superior compare to Windows 10 and 11. I know some people have higher standard on Linux distro but I find it ridiculous.
