there is this open wifi in my neighborhood.

i can connect to it normally, and access the rooter login page just fine (i don't have the password so i can't go beyond that).

but there is no internet.

after checking with Airodump, it shows large traffic and it also has 4 clients.

how is that possible ?, is the rooter using some sort of mac filter to only allow certain clients to access interweb ?



It's manually connected and disconnected from the Internet. It isn't permanently connected as is the traditional way to use wifi.

Let's say I have a normiebook pro 3.0 laptop that I've been ignorantly using for the past couple years.

Is it possible to remove all ties to my former online identity by installing new firmware + OS, and either not going online or when I do, not signing into any of my old accounts and suing much, much improved operational security? I've read about this a lot, but don't use it much in practice (i.e I know about web browser fingerprinting, but haven't cared enough until now to check). Or will this laptop always tell the alphabet agencies/sophisticated agents who I am - and in that case, is getting a new one a clean slate? Or would I need a new IP with a FLOSS router + reputable VPN?

>Is it possible to remove all ties to my former online identity by installing new firmware + OS

w-who do you want to conceal your old i-identity from, a-anon? Normies? Professional doxxers? Advertisers? or the (((NSA))) boogeyman?

>Not going online

Cutting your i-internet connection is the only way you can be 100% s-sure you aren't being s-spied on. H-However next time you connect i-it'll probably b-begin dumping d-data.

>not signing into my old accounts

Signing out alone is enough to escape normies. Resetting your history, cookies, cache, VPN, assuming a false identity and never talking about your previous one is enough to escape doxxers and advertisers (as long as they don't know your address, phone and such)

>Or will this laptop always tell the alphabet agencies/sophisticated agents who I am

It will.

>and in that case, is getting a new one a clean slate?

No, you can never get a clean slate from a normal store. In order to get a clean slate, buy an IBM x60 from a REAL person, libreboot it, install free as in freedom software on it, get a FOSS router and route everything through TOR or other similar network. That's the only way to be as safe as humanly possible.

The NSA agents will know you (by name and address) are using TOR but, in theory, they shouldn't be able to know what you're doing or what you're sending and recieving.

>Reputable VPN

sure, if you can trust a company that can be sued and bribed.

I'm that anon. Ultimately I did this. Please bully if something is wrong. My knowledge of this stuff is very limited.

rm /tmp/boylove.webp

Depends on xsel, ffmpeg and curl. Takes a lossless webp screenshot and uploads it to catbox.moe

I'm having an issue though, you guys see that I nigger rigged ffmpeg into saving to /tmp/ and then having curl read that file which is deleted after everything is done. Is there a way to avoid it with piping or something?

Also when I'm done shitposting, watching anime and playing videogames I'll use ffmpeg to make and output a beeping noise and add that to the script

So I use a VPN and a virtual machine. I'm currently using network namespaces to segregate my two physical interfaces. I start openvpn in one of the namespaces and I start virtualbox in the same one.

What this gives me is a virtual machine that pipes all traffic through the vpn while still having normal network traffic without the vpn for everything that isn't the VM. I'm reasonably certain that I've gotten dns leaks dealt with and VM shows a different public IP than the one outside the instance.

With public IP and DNS leaks dealt with, what other security hazards are there?



The VM could be poorly constructed and leak metadata about for example your CPU.



>using a VPN for torrent

What are you, a faggot? I've been torrenting for years, never had any abuse notices. Anything without a US IP is fine, since those are the only ones they care about.



I'm cheap and I don't need 2 cpus and a server motherboard. Plus I allready have a Q660.



Although using a Free VPN is a fucking terrible idea and you should never do it, if you need to do it torrent in a VM/namespace so that's the only thing they see.


I've got an issue that's driving me fucking insane. I am trying to set my tmux status bar to GREY not black. I am using the linux tty console not a terminal emulator in X i do NOT have X installed i do everything via framebuffer

if i echotc Co it prints 8 however i KNOW that is BS because if i run ANY color script it will physically display more than 8 unique colors (specifically it has black,darkgrey,grey,and white)

I did all the set term shit for tmux, i launch tmux using an alias, i have my TERM env set to screen256 color

but no matter what i do when i set the tmux status bar color to "colour233" or "#080808" or "brightblack" it is always black. It does this for every other color too, its basically just not showing the bright variants of colors even though im using a font with only 256 glyph's and i know for a fact it will print colors out using escape codes. I am also using ZSH so that could be a contributor to the problem but i honestly have no idea please SEND HELP

Just stream it and watch the stream from another PC? Technically you could be able to make so you don't hear the audio from the movie and hear the stream without effecting it, but it will require more work.

That's not what -fs is for. -fs stops writing the file once it reaches your specified size.

Your webm was a 1.5MB file with bad quality because it used the default settings

If you want a video to have a certain size you should do a 2 pass VBR encode or if the file size is more important than quality a CBR encode.

From my experience vp9 with the libvpx-vp9 encoder is the popular video codec that misses the target bitrate the most, and then there's also muxing overhead. I personally encode at a bitrate 5% lower than the desired one and I rarely have to reencode due to overshoot. I also reencode the original audio and mux it into the webm repeatedly until I get the file size I want in case of undershoot, because audio encodes fast.


Try qbittorrent and for searching your torrents use the built in search engine which will look stuff up on a bunch of torrent sites.

When it comes to "trustable" websites you should just ensure you're anonymous and then in case they are indeed sellouts companies will have millions of better targets than you.

I personally use rutracker for anything not porn, pornleech for porn, rarbg for both and I also still go to piratebay because they're the one public tracker that still has most of it's old things.

Do a hard restart. Turn off the electricity if a restart doesn't work. And it should work. Any irregular turning off the system should work.



Also just wait until it asks you to log in and then do a hard restart.

Fuck, I really thought I finally got it. Now that it seems the XMP profiles are still fucked, I have a few questions since I'm new at overclocking.

1) Should I just wait for the restart cycles to end or do I manually turn the PC off? I admit I panicked back in April when I first heard that grinding sound and manually turned it off, which did reset the RAM configs

2) What the fuck was that grinding sound?

3) Are there any recommended guides on how to manually set the RAM timings? I don't wanna fuck up my RAM sticks, but I think 3200 should be possible with some fine-tuning now, or else it wouldn't have booted to begin with.

How do i install Manjaro without all the bloat?

I got their official downloads and they all come full of packages i don't need or want in my computer, and i can't seem to remove one without having to start a chain uninstall of god's know how many other packages.

What i am looking is for something like Xubuntu Core, if you ever used it, it was basically a Xubuntu that only had the essential stuff to run a Desktop.



Download the vanilla net install openrc version.



Trust me i'd stop using firefox if the extensions i use for it where made in other browser, but they aren't, and i suck major ass at coding.

And i'd stop using Ubuntu if the only thing i need it for existed in any other distro.

It's a package named Overlayroot which basically loads the OS on a ramdisk, therefore any change made is never permanent, can be turned on and off by just changing a config line, i know you can manual this but sounds like too complex for my aficionado skills.


I'll give it a shot, thanks

Not much of a /tech/ person really, but here is something I was given years ago when I was going to an interview for a job.




>loud grinding sound

Is it a loud grinding sound or the sound your fans make starting up? If it's the sound your fans make starting up it's harmless and it's natural to hear it multiple times while trying out invalid BIOS settings, if it's a loud grinding sound it's something unrelated to the memory. Maybe something got stuck on a fan or your hard drive took a shit, one way or the other you should look inside your computer to be safe.

>Are there any recommended guides on how to manually set the RAM timings?

Just go to the manufacturer's website and take a pic of the specifications of the memory with your cellphone or something, then reboot into your bios and input what it says on the memory configuration page of your BIOS. It's rare for a manufacturer to let you know every single timing but your motherboard should be able to just fill the unknown ones with default values and it should work and perform fine because some timings make unmeasurably little differences in performance.

>I don't wanna fuck up my ram sticks

Memory sticks are essentially made of a huge number of microscopic capacitors. Having a charge means 1 in binary and not having it means 0. As long as you're not overvolting what happens when your memory stick is unstable is it loses the charge before the charge is refreshed (there's a timing interval specifically for this, too) and it feeds wrong data. Harmless stuff, you won't damage your memory by configuring them wrong (outside of voltage). What might hurt is having this wrong data fuck something up, for instance in the ddr1 days I have corrupted a disk with unstable memory because the cpu wrote garbage to the filesystem.

How good is DirectX 11 support in WINE right now? I'm going to be re-installing the OS on my gaming machine soon and I'd like to ditch Windows 7 in favor of a Linux distro but I have three games running DX11 that are holding me back from making the switch full time. I'd run them through a VM with passthrough but the CPU doesn't support it.


Please help

Firstly: linux mint 18.2, recently upgraded from 18.1

1. I keep getting linux kernel updates but they are level 4 so I did not install them and then I clicked "ignore updates for this", am I fucked forever or does it just ignore that specific level 4 update?

2. Steam in playonlinux does not work, at all, no clue or idea why, the debug log says nothing. Any ideas where to start? Yes, this is a recent wine + playonlinux reinstall



run your playonlinux on terminal and see what's the error.


why is mint is such a meme distro? did you compile a custom kernel from source?



no, I just installed the normal mint. it worked normally until the fucking 18.2 that ruined shit for no reason. for example my volume bar is no longer a black bar that fills up the higher the volume is, it's a light grey on white background bar that shrinks the higher the volume is, wtf

>run playonlinux in terminal

how do I even do that? but I already uninstalled it

I looked at the playonlinux.log and it didnt say anything. the only message was "initializing /directory/wineprefix/path/" and steam didnt give any error either, just refused to start for no reason. extremely weird

>level 4

I'm worried that I might never receive kernel updates ever, but I'm hoping that it's just this specific level 4 update that is ignored, so that level 1 or level 2 updates will still go through



In playonlinux, there's a debug option you can click in the left panel if I'm not mistaken. Select your steam client program in the program list then click "debug". It will run the steam on debug mode. It will also reveals the error logs if there's any.


Is Everychan the (good) app to use to browse 8chan in Android, or it have been deprecated by another app that I could have missed?



Dashchan is good.



yes, I did that, and in the error log there was nothing. it only said "initializing wine/version_number/path/to/wineprefix/directory" and then nothing else. no "crash", no "error", nothing





So a friend picked up a new laptop (HP notebook 15-ay103dx) and it came with Windows 10. I'm trying my best to unfuck that shit but the furthest we got was swapping back to legacy BIOS and installing Windows 7. The snag is that the kikes locked all of the drivers for that laptop to W10, so now I'm at a loss as to how to get it up and running.

The only drivers on the thing whatsoever are USB 3.0 drivers, since I bundled that into the W7 install. How would I go about getting drivers for the thing that are compatible?



Wait, aren't windows supposed to be the most compatible operating system ever? Why do you having issue with:

>muh drivers

How does it feel of using an OS that doesn't respect your freedom you fucking faggot.



>someone has a windows-related problem and explains it in a way that's in no way positive about windows

<wow you fucking faggot let me attack claims you never made

How is this going to help anyone? You're not even making a coherent argument for an alternative - the freedom is being restricted by the manufacturer and by Windows 10 here, and none of the freedom-respecting systems are particularly good with drivers.



>How does it feel of using an OS that doesn't respect your freedom you fucking faggot

I don't know, because I'm not the one with the laptop. That's why I need help getting him set up, because I've never had to bother fighting with said faggy OS before.



Why not just use windows 10 if driver compatibility is such an issue for you hmm? Or If you think that's a bad OS, you could just install gnu+linux distribution and it might work on your laptop just fine.

Nigger I run Arch on my laptop, but normalfags just want a computer that works without any of the W10 cancer, hence why I'm trying to help my friend get shit set up. Don't even try to pretend that gnu+linux is easier to use for the tech-illiterate.



Use Syncplay



Because Windows 10 is bad, and for a lot of use cases, GNU+Linux is bad for different reasons.

I personally run almost exclusively free software, for what it's worth, but really, it isn't viable for everything and everyone.

I've got an i7 7700k, and I bought myself a hyper 212 evo. Runs hotter than it did with the i7 2600 sock heatsink I originally had on it.

Idles around 40C. Running stress -c 8 takes it up to about 75C. Heatsink is nice and tight, I made sure to take the condom off of the bottom of the sink, and there's plenty of thermal grease on the bottom.

Any ideas? The heatsink itself isn't even getting warm.

My computer is sometimes going apeshit, the fuck is this?

So since today my computer suddenly started to mass click everything in sight in an instant and then freeze up. After restarting the computer the screen went black before Windows started, except for a green block and an N (see photo).

When I went into the BIOS my computer went apeshit again by constantly sending the message [return] so that the window kept appearing and disappearing. It only stopped when I did some input.

After that the computer worked again, but then after an hour went apeshit again and the cycle repeated.

The fuck is this? Virus scan leaves me clean. What hardware component is failing?


Can someone help?

My laptop gets to 90 degrees celsius (!) if I use it, and I have a fan that can get it down to 60-65 (which is where it normally operates).

My fan made some weird noises the past couple of days. No clue why, they started suddenly and stopped suddenly, as if one of the fans inside was malfunctioning.

Can anyone explain why my laptop overheats so fucking much and how to reduce it?

I'm on linux mint. Also on the nvidia panel, where it says

>this is a graphical representation of the current GPU core temperature relative to the maximum GPU core slowdown threshold temperature

the light is in the green-yellow area (60 degrees) but it gets to the red area for the 90 degrees. I assume that's bad. Can I mitigate this or minimize it?



Did you try a different keyboard? Someone hacked your keyboard firmware or something.




All I needed to do was reset my router and shutdown and turn on again (as opposed to restarting) and it works again.



Next time it happens I will try that. I highly doubt it's that though. As I also have that graphical issue and my computer refuses to boot the computer further than that.

Thanks for the input, and will definitely try if the issue persists without keyboard/different keyboard.

It's NTFS right? Either way, use a Linux livecd to check.



I'm having the same problem too you know. You need to change the thermal paste and do some cleaning on the cpu fan, at least once or twice a year especially for older laptop. As for heat mitigation solution, you can try running thermald daemon. It helps keeping the heat under control, but not that much though.

Then read a guide somewhere when you get confused.





>greasing your cpu with mayo

I see nothing wrong with this.



>summer high temperatures

can't be, they were higher a few weeks ago and it wasn't this bad, plus it's been like this for months. now it's at 50 degrees but I only just started it

I forgot to mention it gets even hotter if I do actual stuff with it (e.g. play vidya or watch youtube for more than 10 mins)

>thermal paste degradation

do I have to do something about that? how do I know if that's even the issue?

>dust clogging up the vent

the laptop vent or the fans' vent(s)?

do I have to disassemble my laptop and clean it?


ah I see. but my laptop is obviously out of warranty (I think. I think the warranty is 3 years and this one was for maybe 5 or 6?)

are there any risks about this? can I fuck up the laptop? do I have to unscrew its bottom and fiddle with its insides? can I damage anything inadvertently?



i don't know how i ended up here, it just happened

i'm installing all that now, i guess i'll find out if it's NTFS or FAT32 by accessing the disk from ubuntu, right? where do i go from there?



>do I have to do something about that? how do I know if that's even the issue?

>do I have to disassemble my laptop and clean it?

yes, but don't disassemble anything if you don't know how to assemble it back, for the thermal paste, if it looks like a 3 day old stain rather than a cape of solid color, it's time to replace it

but then again, you'll have to look directly at the CPU and since it's a laptop i'm not even sure it has any thermal paste on it

sage for doublepost



>saging a sticky

what's the point?

>laptop has no thermal paste

so I dont have to disassemble it after all? I've never disassembled one before so I dont really know what a CPU looks like. should I look at youtube guides and tutorials? I dont want to fuck my laptop up



Do you even have a gigabit internet connection? Do you even use 1gb/s locally?



Laptops always have thermal paste. The CPU is a bare die (no IHS) with a copper plate and some heat pipes, just so you know what to look for.



>I've never disassembled one before so I dont really know what a CPU looks.

That's why people send their laptop to technician for a reason.

Hey, guys. I am using Win10x64 Firefox v53 64-bit in safemode (all addons disabled) and still can't get inline image expansion to work on 8ch. Image hover works, which is a good workaround, I guess. I noticing when updating Java it said that the Java addon for 64-bit Firefox didn't exist. I don't know if that matters.

Anyone have any idea what could be causing this? Everything tests fine in MS Edge so it's not a network/internet issue.

Thanks in advance.



>Windows 10

Fuck, what I really should have said was plug in your drive into another computer. If you didn't already have another computer, great that Ubuntu stick wasn't a waste. Open up a terminal and issue the command sudo ntfsfix /dev/sdxx. The way you find the device your portable drive is using is to issue the command sudo fdisk -l and the password is blank if there is a prompt. When it's done scanning, there will be a lot of information that shows up, but your drive should be at the very bottom. Look for the size of the drive given by fdisk and make sure the size you found is the same as the portable drive's. You will find that that there is a commonality between all the entries listed by fdisk and find that /dev/ with a a series of letters and number indicate the device and partition. The /dev/sda with a number after it indicates a partion while without the number indicates a drive. You want to be using the partition so do sudo netfsfix /dev/<insert device partition> (note the series of letters after /dev/ should start with an s). If there isn't a ntfsfix command preinstalled on the livecd, do sudo apt-get install ntfs-3g. Then try the ntfsfix again. If you don't trust me google this shit and read a guide.



Try doing the same command but append a one after it like, sudo mount /dev/sdb1. Your were mounting the entire device, not the partition.

Ok so I figured it out, I had to add a ExecStart and a ExecStop setting to the service file for it to stop correctly.

You're not paying attention. Ntfsfix telling you that it's trying to mount a volume, but you gave it a whole disk. Same goes for fsck - disk itself doesn't have a filesystem.

> sudo ntfsfix /dev/sdxx

>The /dev/sda with a number after it

Try sdc1 or sdc2 or whatever volume you're interested in.



this looks scary


Good idea, thanks. But that means I'd have to spend $30-40, unfortunately.


Yeah I think I'll just send it in to some PC repair shop.

I'll probably have to wipe out all the files and folders and back them up with a USB. I presume those fuckers check your files right? Not that I have anything illegal, but if they see my /pol/ infographs I'll probably get arrested.



Why isn't your laptop encrypted?

Also stop sending shit to them. Find a guide and follow it. Do it on a day you have no plans so it's not rushed and take it slow and easy.

ED suggests that for tor, you should install vidalia, tor and privoxy.

I only have the tor browser bundle. Is it as secure, less secure than the method above, or more secure?

I have privoxy (am on linux so downloaded it from the software repositories), does it need setting up or anything?


I'm using Ubuntu 16.04 and am trying to connect to openVPN. It connects successfully with no problems but my internet stops working so I can't do anything even though it connected. So I tried turning on the VPN through opera browser and somehow it works now, but only through opera when the extension is on.

Can someone help?

Did you turn the extension on in your other browsers?



No I've only tried it in opera, but other things such as skype don't work for some reason when the VPN is connected.



Skype still doesn't work when you enable the VPN in its settings?



It doesn't have a VPN in it's settings. All applications should work still when the VPN is on. It's just for some strange reason opera is the only thing that works once I start openvpn, and I have to have the proxy on or else it will just act like all the other applications and have no connection.





Update: I tried it on my other laptop and it does the exact same thing, I believe it's a problem with my router, but I still don't know how to fix it. It's been this way for a few months now.



Messing with tor browser isn't recommended due it being held together with duct tape and Hillary Clinton's Radio Free **** glue.

Vidalia is unmaintained, I'm not sure if it is trustworthy.

Reverse proxies need setup with tor, not worth it since tor abandoned privoxy for a reason.

I'm trying to work on an email verification system for a backend.

I was thinking of doing it something like this:

user registers, column in the users table indicates that they aren't registered. Their email is sent a link with a pattern like this: website.com/verify/<encrypted text of their email>. I was thinking that once the url of that pattern was visited, the serverside logic could take the ciphertext present in the <encrypted text of their email>, decrypt it using the key, see whether it existed in the database, and verify that user if so.

However, I'm running into difficulties: as it turns out, it's pretty hard to pass ciphertext via a url lmao

what's the easiest way to do the thing that I want to do?

I mean it'd be pretty straightforward to just create an association between like a random 10 digit numeric value and the person's user id in another data table, and then ask them to visit website.com/verify/<10 digit code> but I was trying to pursue a more elegant (lazier) solution. can it be done?




Why is it hard to pass cyphertext via url? Is it too long or you don't know how to change url?



IPSec, L2TP, and PPTP were already enabled. I did see something unusual, when the openvpn connected discords voice chat stays connected and works fine as well - the chat does not work on it.


Any software that does Local Remote Desktop only?

I want to make my server headless and I want to control it through local network only.

Teamviewer is no-go as it can connect through the net...

Any recomendations?



I was going to offer an explanation of the problem but I don't really think there is one, I wasn't thinking hard enough about the problem, or in the right way.

Since all I'm dealing with are bytes in the ciphertext, at the very minimum, I should be able to get the integer or hex representations of the ciphertext characters and pass them to the url.



This could be a library issue, try reinstalling common packages between openvpn and discord.



So you're having internal issues to the scope rather than the upper layer? Fuck, I'm tired, I have no idea if you can decipher that previous question but fuck.



It can't be that because my other laptop does it as well, and it doesn't have discord installed, and it cant be ubuntu because the VPN works at my friends house on the same laptop.

So I figure out by changing the vo=opengl to vo=vaapi in mpv.conf fix the subtitle rendering problem, but then all the scaling enhancing features could not be applied on vo=vaapi. Is there a better way to fix this without changing the vo? I'm using nouveau as default driver. I don't like changing it into proprietary driver even though I think that could fix this issue.



>pic 1

You need to specify a directory to mount it onto. For example:

mkdir /mnt/usb1 && mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/usb1

This is because without the second argument, mount looks in /etc/fstab to determine where the block device should be mounted, and if such an entry does not exist, this error will occur.

How secure is BitLocker on Windows for encrypting an entire hard drive?

Are there any better alternatives?

Right now I'm just putting all my sensitive files in encrypted RAR files, but having to extract and repackage them every time is annoying.



As with all proprietary """security""":

It's ok against petty criminals and niggers trying to steal your financial info. It most likely won't work against the alphabets, the gubberment, or skilled hackers.



Yeah.. Had a feeling this would be the case.

Anything more secure which also works on Windows?

I know the obvious answer is switching to Linux, but the software I use for work doesn't support Linux and dual booting is kind of a pain



Install gentoo or some other linux and run a windows VM w/KVM and (optionally) PCI passthrough of your GPU (if you have one). Then, use linux full disk encryption to protect all your stuff.

VMs are relatively fast and easy, and they allow you to use both OSes at once. It also allows you to exercise control over the OS running inside and potentially block microshekel updates etc.



I've always hesitated using VMs. The few times I've tried Virtual Box were always kind of messy.

But I'll look into it. Thanks.

Also, about the Windows updates, you can completely disable those in services.msi .

After that, Windows will never check for updates on it's own and if you try to do it manually you'll just get a big error message.

gentoo is best linux, mint is easiest.

download linux mint iso and use rufus or something to write it to a usb. then boot and install dual-boot.

you can even install windows in a VM (virtualbox is easiest) using your windows iso, then just transfer all your files across.



yeah you should probably do that


We have a problem with a spammer on >>>/kpop/. He's been spamming gay, scat and bestiality porn for the past month cause he hates the BO. He honestly has issues.

We're going to be using a whitelist script that /fur/ created. That script automatically deletes non-whitelisted posts, but users won't see the posts deleted until they do a full browser refresh. So as an additional measure, I thought it would be cool to have the tab auto-refresh after a certain amount of user inactivity. So that way when he's on his spamming spree, no whitelisted user has to actually see any of his posts.

Here's the code I found after some googling:

(function(seconds) {
var refresh,
intvrefresh = function() {
refresh = setTimeout(function() {
location.href = location.href;
}, seconds * 1000);
$(document).on('keypress click', function() { intvrefresh() });
}(30)); // define seconds here

I don't know a whole lot about programming, and the code works okay as it is, but currently it doesn't count mouse-scrolling as an activity, so it'll refresh the page when you're scrolling down through a thread. Also, when it refreshes, it obviously sends you back to the top of the page.

So, is it possible to:

1) Make it consider mouse-scrolling an activity?


2) When it refreshes, it automatically goes to the bottom of the page?

Any other tips or suggestions are welcome. Thanks.



>consider mouse-scrolling an activity

Replace line 9 with the following:

    $(document).on('keypress click scroll', function() { intvrefresh() });

>automatically goes to the bottom of the page

Replace line 6 with the following:




Awesome. Works perfectly.

It doesn't matter whether I use vp8 or vp9 or which audio codec I use in relation to the problem. It's only been happening since around july, versions before that don't have this issue for me.



Does it work on any other mp4s with the same setting? It's possible that this problem is because of a corrupted file or something.

Also try disabling threads. Threading may be a source of bugs, although I'm not sure whether it will fix the issue.



Try a stable build, ffmpeg developers say dev builds are usually fine on the download website but from my experience they really aren't.

I was mostly just looking for it to get Windows reinstalled, since I knew they had a .exe available before. Managed to bum a Win 7 disc and got that running, but I'm still having problems.

I've been debugging what my nintendo wii reads from the USB ports with some game controller and i'm writing drivers for use in homebrew.

It turns out almost all of the buttons on the controller are pressure sensitive. It's HID compliant and most buttons have separate digital and analog values that change when they're pressed. Is this normal in controller design? Is it possible to get this I just discovered working on linux? Whatever drivers linux uses for my controller by default have never allowed me to use the pressure sensitive buttons as pressure sensitive buttons and it would be nice for ps2 emulation.

Also weird is that with the official drivers on windows there's never any mention of this either. Why would they go through the trouble of even sending that info if I'm probably the only one who noticed?

I know this is really advanced for /tech/, but why isn't Direct Energy Conversion more common?

I've been reading about it and it seems superior to other forms of energy conversion, for example most modern nuclear power plants use uranium to heat water which turns turbines. This is around 40-45% efficient.

DEC models, on the other hand are between 60-90% efficient. If you can get twice the efficiency, why aren't they more commonly implemented?

I have a really old PC, it's around 6-7 years old now. I've had some problems with it before but it always ended up working again.

I'm currently unemployed so no chance of buying new hardware but I have a new-ish GPU that I can get from a friend, but I'm reluctant to accept it because I'm afraid it'll suffer from the same problems I'm having right now.

My point is: can I do something to restore the fans to a functioning state? I should definitely buy a decent PSU before everything else, but again, no chance of spending the money right now, anything that could help would be appreciated.

PS.: my GPU crashes constantly when playing anything above Source engine graphics. Makes a buzzing noise and the screen goes black, and then the sound that something has been removed plays and the screen stays on stand-by.

Unlike normal hard drives, there is no 100% reliable way to wipe an SSD. Even if you dd the whole thing with random data, as you would a HD, there can still be recoverable data on an SSD, USBstick, or similar forms of storage media. It is not advisable to keep any kind of sensitive data on an SSD.

hey I am really new to java and I've been trying to do something and I wonder if there is a workaround to do it because I couldn't find anything on the net.

I want b to become 5 but I wasn't succesfull so far.


I got a Prebuild for cheap with have a AMD ryzen R5 1400 CPU, a NVIDIA gt710 GPU, 8 GB RAM DDR4 2133 MHz, 1000 GB HDD, and a A320 m motherboard. PSU is around 500W

Obviously, I want to replace the shitty GPU card, but im wary of bottleneck, so I want ot know what kind of GPU cpould I put there (preferible an AMD card)

I'm too retarded to get into Linux and I like playing video games. I'd prefer to stick with what I'm comfortable with if at all possible.



I just installed a new motherboard: MSI MicroATX 760GMA-P34 and I find that the fan on the GPU is not spinning. Now this is an old GPU AMD ATI Radeon 5550. I got it in 2012 and recently in the past couple of years, the card had been doing some fucky stuff such has the fan making noise and requiring wd40 to fix it. I forgot if on my last motherboard that it stopped spinning or not. But the card still works as I am using it right now to type this, the card is just getting really hot. Also, the case fan isn't working even though it's connected to 3 prongs, however I needed to unsheathe the cover of it though.



It would be cool to manually start the GPU fan but the tutorials seem to be GPU dependent. I am using Linux.

I fixed the case fan, I accidentally plugged it into the wrong place. The GPU fan is still

I am going to start a website. Nothing big. I am doing it more to impress a potential employee so that they can see I have some knowledge is HTML/CSS. The threshold is low where I live. You don't have to be a very good web developer to beat the guys here (living in the 90s by the look of their web sites).

I don't know how much hosting a site costs. Like I said it will not be anything big. I just want to show that I can make a modern looking site. I think for content I will present stories (since I used to write them for a newspaper). I will have a drop-down menu with categories like Home, Short Stories, Contact, About, Submissions. Something like that. I like the look of this site (http://www.thevillagechurch.net/) and want to go for something like that. Excuse the religion injection.

Newfag question here, I've only recently actually gotten into /tech/ stuff, and got started on "Hacking: The Art of Exploitation." I noticed that the version of Ubuntu etc. that it's using is from 2008, so it's extremely outdated to the point that I can only run the piece of shit exclusively in a VM. It works exactly as printed in the book inside of the VM, go figure, but when I start testing things on my main system, it seems to be using totally different memory registers and instructions.

For example, pic related is what the book prints out, a.out being a basic Hello World script.

Code related is what Arch puts out, the source is exactly the same otherwise.

Anybody care to explain to a complete moron why the outputs are so radically different, even using the same i686 architecture? The book was published in 2008, so maybe they're stuck on 32 bit still while the processor I'm using is 64 bit, and that's what causes the discrepancy?

I've recently installed Arch on an Asus C300, a Chromebook. Everything works fine, except for the elantech touchpad. I've tried introducing kernel parameters i8042.reset, i8042.nomux and others concerning i8042 (kinda like here https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/28736/what-does-the-i8042-nomux-1-kernel-option-do-during-booting-of-ubuntu), but they did nothing. Tried removing xf86-input-synaptics and reinstalling it, no dice.

So I'm trying to install Gentoo on one of my currently unused computers. Unfortunately, I used the minimal installation media to install everything and I keep getting "efi variables are not enabled" when trying to install GRUB, even when booting from System Rescue CD, mounting everything up, and trying again.

My question is: do I need to restart the entire install process on a UEFI-booted device in order to be able to get GRUB to install correctly, or at what point in the installation process do I need to backtrack to to get it to work?



Just mount the files and chroot. I had the same problem and it worked. However, you should know that UEFI has its own bootloader, making GRUB useless (if you have made a GRUB partition, it might be possible to merge it with the boot partition, but I don't know how).

Wait, did you get those from my link? Or are you asking for help on an unrelated issue? You can try using Adwcleaner to scan for malware, it will remove any registry entry or service and will clean up your browser's profile



no u


If you start Windows in safe mode it will install the drivers for your new hardware but eventually you might have issues with the old drivers. You could try using some app to clean the old drivers and registry entries but honestly it will be more trouble and time wasted than simply reinstalling Windows.


I need help with getting windows 10 update working with minecraft, java seems to crash everytime. I was told this is a good place to ask :)

- Find out which directory has all the big files and put it on another partition

- Boot a live linux with gparted on it and increase the size of /



There is a command called file. Figure out the rest.



Have you tried reinstalling Java? Have you tried reinstalling Minecraft? Have you tried reinstalling both? Have you rebooted? Where in the entire process does Java crash?

Two questions.

Is Scala a meme language, or is it actually practical? I really want to learn brogramming, but I really don't know where to start with what language, what IDE or where to find stuff to learn it.

And is Java open source? I know that there is OpenJDK for an open source implementation of the JDK, and some JVM open source implementations, but is Java fully FOSS?



>Is Scala a meme language, or is it actually practical?

Practical for non-retards. Prepare yourself for type theory and advanced FP.

>I really want to learn brogramming,

>but I really don't know where to start with

>what language


>what IDE


>where to find stuff to learn it.


For fuck sake. It was answered a million times here already. You wouldn't be able to comprehend Scala without understanding the essentials of SICP. Scheme itself is useless but is good learning and has a lot of top quality learning materials.

>And is Java open source?

Java Specification is public domain. You can write your own compiler and VM, but to call it 'Java' officially you have to pass TCK and pay royalties. The major implementations are based on OpenJDK which is GPL-ed.

IcedTea is a FLOSS-confirming package of OpenJDK by Red Hat with all trademarked stuff removed, it passes TCK.



Is Scheme actually practical? Is software actually built on it?



>it won't let me post a simple txt file.

how hard it is to convert it to a pdf or use pastebin?


- Check your PSU and coolers for burnt smell or melted connectors

- Look for swollen capacitors

- check under the motherboard for any burnt spot

- unplug everything but processor (and cooler obviously) and one memory stick to check if it still booting. It's best if you use old spare parts to avoid the risk of damaging your stuff in case the MB is fucked.



It's practical for learning. There's no Scheme job positions available, neither worthy software projects (Racket is an exception, but it ceased to be Scheme a lot time ago).


Is there a reason to learn ruby?

I heard its just python but worse



It'll make Python seem better when you eventually switch to it.

I want to play with my PS2 through my computer, would this thing do? is less than 15 bucks right now, I just want 60FPS on passthrough with as little input lag as possible (I heard is not usually present with passthrough instead of live capture preview), otherwise I think it would be easier to get a new monitor and use a dual monitor setup on my rig.

Hi deder


A question about VFX software; Is the newest version of Boujou, supposedly a candidate for best match moving software, really SEVEN YEARS OLD? Shit's 32-bit and not even multithreaded.


i need a raw video delivery system that can be made fully portable. think camera, but just the part that "sees". where do i get that ?

i want to make a night vision helmet.

i have created a bunch of blueprints but have basically no info yet.

my plan goes as follows.

imagine flat goggles. now, imagine two IR led arrays fixed on both right and left sides of these goggles.

fix a kamera in the middle of it, then power the whole thing up.

obviously, the helmet has a screen that displays direct video feed inside.

i want the helmet to make a night vision device. to be able to see the IR'd up feed live. and it would actually be nice to have a way to record things too.

it goes without saying that i want there to be a switch aswell...

i want these things.

- a way to make it work

- a trustworthy schematic

- money...

- info about everything i need (parts, techniques and all)

- where to get them

- a way to make it all fit together, some wiring, and some motivation.

also, should i use a virtual helmet ? how do these work ? do you think this could be of any use ?



Didn't work. Any other way to get these things to work, without having to waste a disc on them?

I was having problems with audio and looked up how to fix it but it completely fucked Ubuntu up. Everything has unmet dependencies as you can see in the picture. I can't login normally because it tells me it failed to login to the session.

What do???



apt-get -F install for starters. Change your sources.list back then apt-get update. You're digging in the wrong area to set up audio.



apt-get -f install shows nothing was upgraded, installed, or removed.

Also I know I'm in the wrong area, I'm trying to fix what the guide commands told me to do.

Here's the guide if it helps:

#include <QLabel>

#include <QPushButton>

#include <QVBoxLayout>

int main(int argc, char *argv[]) {

QApplication a(argc, argv);


QWidget window;

QVBoxLayout* mainLayout = new QVBoxLayout(&window);



QLabel* title = new QLabel("JACK'S ADVENTURE 3");



QPushButton* startButton = new QPushButton("START");



QObject::connect(&startButton, SIGNAL(clicked()), &a, SLOT(quit()));
