sunshavivajb: my backlight has failed two months ago. On the night i can read anything on my n90003:20
sunshavialso probably for improving my reading condition i should change the plastic over the screen03:21
sunshavieven answering a phone in the night is very difficult03:21
Maxdamantusime the screen is still readable under direct sunlight, where the backlight is pretty much completely ineffective (might as well be off under that condition)03:23

brolin_empeyIs it normal to already have human memory problems at an age of only 31 years? :-/08:11

brolin_empeyOksanaa: There is a series of Android smartphones from Russia that have both an AMLCD or AMOLED display and an electronic paper display but I cannot remember the name because my memory has become lossy in the last year or so, presumably because I am getting old.  Anyway, I lost interest in this series when I found that the battery is difficult to remove because I will not buy a handheld computer with a difficult to remove battery after my Galaxy Note 308:16
brolin_empeybattery adventure.  I remembered the name: YotaPhone.08:16
* Oksanaa nods, yes, YotaPhone. Frankly, I am tired of "display outside, to scratch, to smash, and to make people use the phone all the time - endangering anybody in traffic08:26
brolin_empeyYou could argue that automatic transmissions endanger other users of the road because they allow operators of a vehicle to be distracted from driving.08:35
brolin_empeyAlthough accidentally stalling a vehicle with a manual transmission can be dangerous too.08:37
brolin_empeyOr rolling back too much when stopped on an incline.08:38
*** eMHa has joined #maemo08:39
brolin_empeyAlso, is a manual/non-electric wheelchair a modern penny farthing?08:40
OksanaaNo idea. But penny farthings, unlike unicycles, are still bicycles, and thus cannot be ridden on footpath.09:19
OksanaaAnd if I ever get around to learning road rules, I would like to learn driving with manual transmission. But that will take years.09:19
KotCzarnynah, manual is easy09:20
KotCzarnyjust takes some practice09:20
KotCzarnybut it's like riding a bicycle09:20
OksanaaPossibly. I learnt to ride a bicycle in my late teens. At least, I didn't fall sideways into the rice field...09:21
* enyc meows09:36
sparreGood morning.09:38
* brolin_empey just noticed the addition of the “bugs” field in /proc/cpuinfo in Linux kernel 4.4.0 on x86.10:12
brolin_empeyWell, it may have been added before 4.4.0 but most of the GNU+Linux computers I use are still using a 3.x or earlier Linux kernel.10:13

Vajbis it worth buying more memory to laptop which is running pentium 2020m processor? It has 4gb now.13:41
KotCzarnydoes it use ssd drive?13:41
KotCzarnythen imo ssd is better investment, assuming it doesnt have to have big storage13:42
Vajbit is running win10 and I noticed that when just firefox was on it was using 90% of RAM already13:43
KotCzarnyoh, windows13:43
KotCzarnyalso, first check what is really using the ram13:44
Vajbdoing scans but so far it has seemed clean of spyware and malware13:45
*** florian has quit IRC13:46
KotCzarnyyou can use memory limiting options in firefox too13:54
KotCzarnyotherwise it's one red hungry bastard13:54
*** eMHa has joined #maemo14:05
MaxdamantusWhat does "using 90% of RAM" mean? Does that include disk cache?14:08
MaxdamantusOptimally, all RAM should be used, for cache if nothing else.14:08
Maxdamantusthe only time you would expect RAM to be unused would be immediately after booting, or after processes that were using RAM have exited.14:09
VajbMaxdamantus: it was just task manager showing 90% of memory. I thought that lag of memory makes it feel slow, but maybe it is due hdd.14:12
Vajbbut fact is that it is rather slow computer14:12
KotCzarnyvajb: install noscript extension14:12
KotCzarnyit will disable javascript by default and allow whitelisting sites where it will run14:13
KotCzarnyit's a must for braindead web2.0 philosophy14:13
Vajbwill it be suitable for regular user who just wants to browse web and listen to music?14:15
KotCzarnyyou have an icon to allow/deny scripts from particular domain14:15
bencohit's "suitable" but quite annoying for regular users tbh14:16
KotCzarnyhelp curbing bad sites tho14:17
*** xy2_ has joined #maemo14:18
VajbI'll check how it feels and decide accordingly. Thx for the hint.14:19
KotCzarnysome sites are quite stubborn, and plainly refuse to run because you would need to enable all ads, up to the user what to do (temporarily allow all or just find better site)14:20

brolin_empeyVajb: Is the computer using a 64-bit OS?  Also, try using Vivaldi instead of Firefox.21:07
*** l_bratch has joined #maemo21:09
brolin_empeyVajb: Also, 4 GiB may already be the maximum amount of main memory supported by the computer, in which case you can still clone the HDD onto an SSD to improve performance.21:12

Vajbbrolin_empey: yes, it is 64-bit and manufacturer says it supports 16gb of memory, but I think that is over the top with that processor.23:05
