/flt/ - Friendly Linux Thread

Intended for users of all levels, including absolute beginners.

If you are serious about switching to Linux, use it exclusively for 2 weeks, avoid windows dual booting for that period of time, or it's likely you will start retreating back to windows instead of getting used to Linux as your new home and working on making it feel the way you want it.

It is recommended to experience distro of your choice in a VM.

Before asking, please find the answers to your questions in resources.

Please be civil, notice the "Friendly" in every Friendly Linux Thread.

Understand that much of your software from windows will be unavailable, (although maybe wine can make up for it.)

Anyone else hate contactless payment technology?

Banks in my country refuse to issue non contactless chip cards now.
People can steal your debit card and use it without the pin
I never use the contactless and always use my debit card as chip and pin
Whats the best way to disable this /g/?

I think I hit jackpot.

Hey /g/, take a look at this idea.

If you were to never PAY ONE CENT for electricity spent ( no, it's not my mom paying it I just live in a country where my small towns just don't fucking pay it because corruption, elections and other factors), how much €/$ could I make in a month?
I have fair understanding of GNU/Linux and technology in general but with Bitcoin I am not experienced.

I figure I need
1. Electricity ( no worry in my case )
2. High end rig. I am thinking of buying 2 ATI good cards for this. Any better solution? I don't have a lot of money to invest. Maybe later if all goes fine.
3. Internet
4. Understanding of GNU/Linux, networking.

Now, the second great thing after not paying electricity, I would be hosting the rig at a family friend who has a small ISP for the town. The ISP isn't that great but all right for basic Internet stuff. Maybe would be getting 2 Mbits/second download speed. Might as well just the rig as server.

So I'd have a free rig running on free electricity and Internet. How much could I make from one ATI Radeon™ HD 5870 card for example?
Also, can I mine buttcoins on an encrypted hard disk without lowering the mining speed or something? I'd encrypting it in case it gets stolen or something.
Cons would be electricity going down for maybe 2 hours a day at most, Internet disconnecting now and then.

>TL;DR Have free electricity, how much could I make off Bitcoin?

I'm finishing a 3 month probation period in 3 days and I think I will be let go with a month's pay instead of notice. My managers are middle aged women (one rank above me but more than a decade older) who dislike me and want me gone. The job itself is easy.

I always planned to leave this job later this year and start a better one but this episode has left a sour taste. My manager literally makes shit up about me in meetings and emails and was shouting at me about how she was disgusted with me for not socialising with anyone. The other manager has clearly sided with the other. It's comical how they have nothing in my work to criticise, only my "teamwork and negative attitude".

I hope I get let go so I can get the chunk of money. I worry that they would falsely accuse me of serious shit if they somehow let me stay. If I fail probation it will be funny how much bigger my bank balance will be compared to when I started or if they keep me. Paying rent in London is a hoover of money, so saving is hard. And reference rules in the UK mean that all the company can say is that I worked here for a certain time.

It's like a law of nature that all low stakes office environments become female dominated vapid normie signalling fests. It's so surprising for me to see the hatred that some people have for people that don't act like ubernormies. I knew it in theory but to see it in practice is another thing. And the highest up male is a pencil neck weasely type (assuming he's on the womens' side). And my work is brainless and I spend at least 3.5 hours of every 8.5 hours doing nothing. But really, my main manager is the fulcrum.

It's bureaucracy that's detached from reality. I'm not totally against that, just stop the normie charade that comes with it. And the high level targets are flawed (I'm not annoying enough to point it out irl).

How quickly can I learn to code and avoid being dependent on peer assessment? Or is high finance the true way?

Currently have a 128GB iPhone XR. It's almost 3 years old but works fine. Was kind of a ripoff objectively but I had to get an iphone and i thought it was the best one at the time. Thinking of upgrading to get 5G and OLED. Budget is around 1k max but saving money is never a bad thing. What should I get /g? Pixel 6, Samsung Galaxy, iphone 13? Or just hold on to the XR for another year or two. No preference for OS.
