This, to my knowledge, is the best /tech/nology board that exists. 4chan is consumerist gaymer garbage, 8ch/tech/ has been overrun with faggots from /pol/ trying to hide from muh jooz, lainchans data was wiped off the fucking planet when their administrators screwed up, and all of the others are dead.

If this board is to be brought back to a state of prosperity, we need to create and bring forth more educated individuals with a yearning to understand with the motivation and knowledge to pursue their own projects.

Learning 4 Newbs:
C Programming Language (Learn how to make that machine you shitpost with do what you want)
Computer Organization and Design (Learn how that machine you are using to shitpost works)
George Simmons Precalculus In A Nutshell (Will revamp your mathematical knowledge and help you understand deeply)
The Art Of Electronics (Learn how that machine you shitpost on works on the lowest level with electricity!)

Getting Started:
-Look on ebay for old thinkpads (If you are here, you should already have done this)
-Get a small Raspberry Pi (Simple to learn with and a massive community and hundreds of projects done already with firmware support)
-FPGA boards (Big boy electronic design, where you get to psuedodesign your own CPU. Try https://www.nandland.com/ (Xilinx is independent, Altera is Intel owned, so I'm not going to trust them)) LIMITED ONLY BY YOUR IMAGINATION!...
-Some cheapo electronics tools and wires from Amazon or an electronic supply store. Hakko is a japanese-based company and creates some of the best soldering stations and irons for the lowest price, 60/40 solder will get the job done. Don't forget solder wick, or your gonna have a bad time. Avoid working with BGA electonics.
-A multimeter and an Oscilloscope (EXTREMELY IMPORTANT) if you want to dig deeper into your electronics. A variable power supply will also give you more freedom.

Some tips:
-Electronics are delicate and static from carpets and cotton sheets with destroy them, ground yourself outside or with an outlet before work.
-Someone is always watching, this should be apparent to most of you, but this knowledge will give you more power to change the world than other people, use and gain it wisely
-A certain mindset must be adopted if you want to succeed here. Don't fill your mind with trivialities and stress yourself(Literally killing you), but have some fun for the limited time you are here, fun with computers is more than just hiding from malicious entities.

The rest is up to you.

It must have escaped your notice that this one is dead, too. When it wasn't, most of the few posters here were one or more of the following: mentally ill, semi-literate, LARPing, or just plain retarded. With rare exceptions, the discussion here was of very low quality.

You say that as if better alternatives exist. More users does not equate to a better board, for is the content which they perpetuate that determines the quality of the board. Give me an actual answer instead of "lol find it urself" or some other absurd answer if you want to be taken seriously.

By your standards perhaps, but still far better than the alternatives. Go look at 4chan and 8chan and tell me they are better (Spoiler Alert: They aren't). Don't know what you have against bringing this place back from the dead, posting as a troll?

Fuck off retard and while you're fucking off have look at the logic chapter of one your listed books.

Fucking trolls like you are the reason this board is shit, finding any reason to jack off your ego. No use in arguing with idiots who are so deep in themselves it is impossible for them to lose even when confronted with true logic.

Fuck off, retard. And take your true logic with you.

I'm confident you might even be a shill, or if you aren't you certainly act like one, attempting to push people away from this board and constantly using insults to get what you want.

It is true that this is, to my knowledge, the best /tech/ board that exists, for the others in my eyes lack the focus that this one has, yet it seems that your feeble mind has trouble comprehending such a statement. If you find that a better alternative exists, do bring it up (Although you won't, I already know that you find it to be a great duty of yours to protect boards from "retards", and of course you do it for free, lets be honest, you are on par with the mods from /sp/ at this point).

No point in arguing with retards (That might be shills/trolls), so consider this my last message.

It won't on my account. I haven't been here since my initial response >>13016 and I don't plan to return frequently. I'll check in every week or two like I have since I decided to leave this shit shack.
>More users does not equate to a better board,
I didn't say it does.
>for is the content which they perpetuate that determines the quality of the board.
Bingo. And that's why end/tech/ was so shit.

Pic related. It's of anyone waiting for this board to become good.

The installgentoo wiki could use some updating. Either here or in another thread we could post articles that are outdated, stubs, or topics with no articles at all.
Helping the wider tech imageboard community is a plus too. We're not that insular of a community, and our quality will only get worse as other boards go down the shitter.

Thanks for the general outline of how/where to get going. Any and all tips and guides are immensely helpful.

nice bread op. i have a few books coming in and i've already read through most of them in pdf format. one is k&r but i also recommend people get a solid grasp of networking. my recommendation is Computer Networking a Top-down Approach. pretty pricey textbook, found a bad condition copy on ebay for 30 bucks though.

Why a thinkpad?

Anonymous 05/23/2019 (Thu) 00:08:04 [Preview] No.13325 del
not OP, but a few reasons is that they're built like tanks, they're fast enough, they're practically free, spare parts are cheap and plentiful, documentation for the pre-Lenovo thinkpads is excellent, and that pencil eraser mouse thing in the middle of the keyboard is an unsurpassed mouse substitute for a laptop

Anonymous 05/24/2019 (Fri) 12:45:11 [Preview] No.13326 del
old thinkpads are pretty /comfy/, excellent build quality and easily repaired/upgraded. unfortunatley the new ones are mostly trash.

Anonymous 05/24/2019 (Fri) 15:05:53 [Preview] No.13327 del
Oh, u were refering to the old ones. I'm suspicious of everything coming from Lenovo, were those also from them? That company had around 3 outbursts of spyware on their firmware.

I had a LG S425 back in the day, it was an excellent laptop. What is your experience with LG and Acer?

Anonymous 05/25/2019 (Sat) 20:57:55 [Preview] No.13328 del
ooh ya soz i wasn't more specific - pre-Lenovo is the only way to go. HP went cheap and cheesy on manufacturing after they bought them.

Yeah, what 13351 said. If you want to go outside, pack your desktop and 21" LCD monitor and Honda generator up in a backpack like everybody else.

Perhaps we have more luck finding a quality laptop with some small manufacturer.

get yourself a librebooted thinkpad running a free distro like parabola or trisquel

if you dont know what intel management engine or amd psp is, then you really need to get libreboot
