Profile

I'm a random person living in Colorado. I try to learn Arch Linux but I'm still pretty bad with it. In fact, I'll maybe will switch because I don't like the "btw i use arch" stereotype that people seem to associate with me.

My first build: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/nonoesimposible/saved/edit/?saved=VYV4CJ

My name

On the Duolingo forums, I was learning Spanish and set my username to nonoesimposible and set my profile picture to Luke in a effort to create some humor. However, when taken out of the context of language learning, it doesn't make much sense.

I've considered a rebranding to "NoNo", which is my preferred nickname anyway.

Most favorite builds of all time

Any of the Mirørs.
I also enjoy seeing what people do with the Phanteks Evolv Shift and Shift X.

I like the aesthetic of Noctua Chromax too.

Social Media

I've always been kinda skeptical about letting anybody on the internet have the possibility of seeing my Discord tag, so I'm always waffling over whether to include it here. It is:

Everything you need to know about Comment Karma

Most of this post was a rant after yet another karma topic appeared.

One Karma is awarded for every upvote a comment of yours receives. You lose one karma for every person that downvotes one of your comments. For example, if the total number of upvotes you have is 244 and the total number of downvotes you have is 22, then you have 244-22=222 karma.

Vagabond is the user with the most karma. Noobs constantly spam topics in OT asking about karma and the karma store.

What's the Karma Store? The Karma Store is a real merchandise store where you can buy PC parts with karma as a currency. It is unlocked at 10,000 karma. Many people say that it's unlocked earlier; they're only trying to be funny in the Internet's weird sort of way.

People place way too much value in karma IMO. Karma does not directly translate to how helpful you are. You might get one point for helpful parts list advice and seven points for a funny joke in off-topic. You do not need to know much about PC's to make a funny joke in off-topic.


I have a proposition for karma units. Do you know about the kibibyte?

1 kilobyte (KB) = 1000 bytes
1 kibibyte (KiB) = 1024 bytes

1024, of course, is 210.

What if, instead of having to deal with these enormous numbers of karma, we just use kibikarma?

1 kibikarma = 1024 karma

It takes about 9.77 kibikarma to unlock the karma store. If you remember unit conversions, you should be able to figure out that

  • Divide k karma by 1024 to get kibikarma
  • Multiply K kibikarma by 1024 to get karma
