Opera Presto had the best GUI ever. Ever.

Posted 02-21-2016 at 10:27 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

I can't speak anything about the web-rendering part, which seemed at very least okay, in pair with firefox and chrome, if not somewhat better, sometimes. Even there the GUI alone could give it an edge sometimes as it had a button where you could choose to display/download no image at all, only display already cached images, or operate normally. Other browsers may even have that function, but it's hidden deeper in a less customizable GUI.

And customization was so easy and powerfull....

Compton and Intel Gfx | No tearing and 60 FPS

These are my configs for achieving 60FPS without tearing on Intel GM45 Onboard Graphics. I'm using compton for this.

These optimizations are for speed not quality. The purpose of this was to achieve lagless 60fps video playback on my old Dell Vostro 1015 laptop. I still get frame drop on youtube but it is better than it was previously.

My Xorg configuration

Code:
#cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf

Posted 02-10-2016 at 04:29 PM by tpalmerstudios (PalmerStudios)

Whenever I download something, I like to be very sure on the authenticity of the file. The only way to do this easily is by using a cryptographic hash. There are two main types. First is MD5, and the second is SHA1.
Requirements:
1. A computer.
2. 10 minutes to learn (the actual process is only 1 minute long.)
3. Internet connection
How to do it: (On Windows)
1. Download the file needing to be verified. (I am using a Linux ISO. This file can be anything,...
