Your local IP is the IP of the device on the network. All devices connected to the same network will communicate with your device through that IP. It's the address your router assigned to your device. Routers also have a local IP of their own, usually ending in 100. There's no need for your local IP to be hidden.

Your public IP is what your device uses to identify itself on the internet.

/tech/, am I wasting valuable time torrenting by using a SOCKS5 proxy with my VPN? As I understand it, my connection goes thru the VPN, then to the TAP adapter, then to the SOCK5 proxy and then thru the VPN again. Will using a SOCKS5 proxy with my VPN make me more secure, or am I just wasting time?

Also, is IKEv2 protocol more secure than L2TP? Finally, since I use my VPN's DNS with leak protection, is it worth it to shell out more money for a packet scrambler (prevents deep packet inspection)? Also, am I making the right choice by going with Deluge as my bittorrent client? I am using IPvanish (no logs policy) and my server I mainly connect to is hosted in Switzerland (outside 14 Eyes).

No.896650

>>896605

It's impossible and pointless. You shouldn't even connect to public WiFi and should only connect to trusted WiFi. Your firewall will protect you from most shit on a local network. All VPNs will protect your data from the network host/router and all other connected devices, but you can't hide your IP from the main router. It's simply impossible, the router is the thing that assigns the IP to your device. The only way to avoid this is to just use your SIM network and not WiFi.

"Certain people" means, extremely roughly, the alt-right. It's not exactly that, but there's a lot of overlap. It includes a lot of people on 8chan and a lot of assholes.

"Virtue signaling" is a term that originally saw use on websites like LessWrong and spread out from there. It's a specific kind of signaling.

Signaling is any way people (or animals) send messages to each other. It includes just straightforward talking, but it also includes facial expressions, using certain words or terms, and buying an expensive car to show off how rich you are.

Virtue signaling is when you say or do something that's supposed to prove how virtuous you are but is not very effective.

"Certain people" adopted the term without knowing the logic behind it, and use it all the time, very annoyingly. Most of them don't know that signaling is a more general concept, which means it gets stretched in really weird ways.

The LessWrong cluster of communities mostly stopped using the term, except in the parts that overlap with "certain people".

The result is that if someone says "virtue signaling" they're almost certainly part of "certain people". It's not airtight proof, but if someone says it, then there's a 90%+ chance they are.

Ok bruddas, I need to ask a favor from you. This laptop I got came with Windows 10 aka GoyLogger 10. I want to switch to Windows 7 which is more trustworthy, I know how to install Windows 7 if I had the software, however I don't want to purchase or order it online, and preferably not get it from a store either. That leaves me with the option of torrenting it, but I worry that the torrent for it might be buggy and that I'll thus lose all my data if the system fails.

1. try to get the book "C Programming - A Modern Approach", 2nd ed. by K.N. King, it's probably the best book to learn C from these days. A hardcopy may be expensive and an ebook may be hard to find, but it's worth trying. K&R is also very good but also quite dated in some aspects, if you're not already familiar with some concepts then some syntax minutiae in the book may throw you off (especially if you follow the next suggestion), which won't be the case with King's book. You can always come back to K&R later with a bit more experience.

2. configure your compiler to show all possible warnings (for gcc use the switches -Wall -Wextra -pedantic) so it points out all possible issues with your code (using code examples from K&R verbatim will result in some warnings nowadays, while code from King's book should not). Trying to make the compiler go full autist you can also make all warnings into errors with -Werror (meaning your code won't compile if there's any warnings at all), but it's not such a good idea for learning because you probably want to have the freedom to try out more sloppy/hacky things at times.

3. after you become somewhat acquainted with the language, read a bit about the MISRA standard and try to apply its good practices whenever possible (at least in more "serious" code such as full programs) so you make a habit of writing good quality code rather than wobbly and flaky poo that just barely works somehow if glued together with gum and ducttape.

Only accept the security updates, and even those can be suspicious, the cumulative "security + quality rollup" combos come to mind. Also mind the wording, which is "important updates".

So to answer your question, keep deselecting and hiding anything that doesn't have the word "security" in its name.

After getting fed up with my rig randomly shutting off during games, I decided it was time to buy a new power supply and a new case. My issue was solved and everything went swimmingly, but of course if the story ended there it would have no place in this thread.

PSU: CORSAIR VS Series VS500 (CP-9020118-NA) 500W ATX12V / EPS12V 80 PLUS Certified A

Case: Rosewill ATX Mid Tower Gaming Computer Case, Supports up to 400 mm Long VGA Card

About a few weeks after leaving positive reviews, I wake up, press power aaaaaand nothing. So I did what any respectable PC enthusiast would do and started frantically smashing the power button, then when that failed I ripped off the side-panel and started wiggling around the power switch cable. Then it turned on.

Okay...maybe the cable was just loose? Nope. Not that simple, tomorrow morning same song and dance. I figured maybe I was too rough with the power cable during installation so it stopped working....a month later and I needed to replace it. So I bought a pack of like 10 replacement power switch cables plugged one in and it completely solved my issue...for about 6 hours before it came back again. At least I have a reset button now...?

At this point after rigorous testing it seemed like the only reliable way to power on my machine was with the DirectKey button on the motherboard. I tried updating the BIOS but that didn't fix it either. Since then I'd totally dread the idea of shutting down my computer, and I've been effectively side-stepping the issue for weeks now by putting it to sleep instead.

Then last night the inevitable happened, there was a snowstorm (in april, go figure) resulting in a powerout. Once that was over with I pressed the power button, nothing. Press the direct key button, still nothing. Poke around the computer's insides fondling cable handles almost randomly for an agonizing minute, hoping it'll improve its mood. Then it's turned on. The old hotspot seemed to be the power switch cable, now it appears to be the 24PIN connector.

I mean at least it's not shutting down in the middle of a match but still: this is not acceptable behavior for a PC. If I wanted to spend every waking moment with a horrible sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach, trying to figure out what's wrong while being left in the dark: I'd get a girlfriend.

Even though half the time my PC wont boot up, my motherboard's LEDs are always lit like a candle; even when it's shut down. So what do you lads think it is: the motherboard? The PSU? The case? A curse? I could only find about 2 people on the internet with a similar issue and they both presumably died because their issue was never solved.

I turned it off again and the temps are still very high, 50-70C, up from around 22C.

I've cleaned my case, checked all fans, reapplied thermal paste 3 times to my water block (Fractal Design Kelvin s36 AIO), attempted to refill the loop (it's full).

I've also tried to underclock my CPU, turned off SpeedStep, set the default speed of all fans and pump to be max RPM, and cleared CMOS.

Still, I'm running hot at idle, and as soon as I attempt to boot anything, some, if not all cores, jumps up to 90-100C.

Is it safe to overclock a RAM kit designed for 1.35v at 1.65v? I've already got it to 2133Mhz from 1600, want to see if I can take it up to 2400MHz. Or is that stupid? I've heard high RAM voltages can mess up your CPU in addition to the DIMMs, is that true?

Aren't there off the shelf kits that run on 1.65v? It seems strange because I've read online that Sandy/Ivy bridge supposedly shouldn't run RAM higher than 1.6v.

I'm running the kit right now at 1.5v. I know that's safe because my brother who I got it from never enabled XMP and therefore ran at 1.5v 1333Mhz for four years. The question is whether 1.65v is OK, I mean RAM doesn't get that hot right? What's the worst that could happen?

Update, tried to OC on 1.65v and my AIDA64 scores actually decreased. I thought it would be as easy as cranking the voltage and then the frequency with the same timings as before but it doesn't work. I think the auto settings for the "advanced timing controls" (all that shit behind the standard 9-9-9-24 etc) are clocking down to handle the increased speed. I could probably squeeze out 2200 MHz if I wanted to fuck with those but it's just not worth the 20 extra variables to deal with, I think I'm going to stick with standard voltage.

Are you increasing your timings while you increase frequency? Because you can actually lose performance overclocking that way.

No idea about AMD but modern intel cpus have their power mechanisms built into the CPU, and intel specifies maximum voltages so you can very much kill your CPU doing it.

I can tell you RAM overvolts well, but 300mv might be pushing it.

>>900435

Intel recommends you don't run ram sticks over 1.6v on those cpus, but people have been doing it just fine for a long time.

I don't think they would set such a limit if it was unnecessary though, so assume your cpu will live a lot less if you go near or over 1.6v on the memory.

No.900508

I've been pushing the "big 4" timings (the one on the sticker, 9-9-9-24 etc) as low as they can go but haven't been touching the "advanced timings". I've tested it, literally I have found stable timings at 2400MHz 1.65v, benched it, then run the same timings at 2133MHz 1.5 and gotten the same, or slightly less, scores. I figure it has to be the advanced timings clocking down for stability, but I have no idea how I would tweak them. Figuring out the optimal ratios between the first 4 has been tough enough. That and the potential risk of killing my CPU or RAM has me back on my 1.5v OC for now.

The timings other than the main ones don't matter as much specially nowadays, but you can get information on them here: http://www.tweakers.fr/timings.html . Pretty much every website on the internet is incomplete and requires understanding coming from other places and other websites.

Keep in mind all timings mean how many RAM clock cycles it takes for something to happen so GENERALLY lower is better. An example of the contrary is tREFI which controls how many clock cycles it takes for the memory to be refreshed. Invidual bits in RAM are essentially microscopic capacitors, their charge goes away very fast and so you can't just charge them and expect the charge to last like on flash memory. A memory stick will recharge charged bits at a set controllable interval so they don't lose charge and flip, and you can't use the entire stick while it refreshes (more accurate term: recharges). This sounds pretty hefty but the operation isn't done all that often and doesn't take much, so the performance impact is tiny. You're on /tech/ so you probably have already heard of possible attacks in which one freezes a RAM stick and has enough time to hard reset the computer and plug in a flash drive with a program that will dump everything written in memory.

This is where cross referencing comes into play though, the average ddr3 memory stick is rated for 85c, so manufacturers generally have a tREFI low enough that the stick can safely run at their rated maximum temperature (let's assume 85c) without having bits flipped and misreading.

I very much doubt your RAM is running at 85c, which means you can likely more than double your tREFI and enjoy a tiny performace improvement, a tiny reduction in power consumption and with that a tiny reduction in heat with the tradeoff that if someday you set your ram on fire it might misread.

No.900527

>>900523

Another thing, if you want to get an objective meaning to timings you generally have to calculate them.

For instance I have 2 1600mhz 9-9-9-24 memory sticks, similar to your setup.

If I want to calculate what my CL of 9 at 1600mhz actually means, I solve this operation:

1000 / 1600 * 9

1000 is the amount of ms in a second, 1600 represents how many mhz my stick has so it is actually 1600000000 because we're dealing with megahertz not hertz. You don't have to use the number in mhz because you can just knock the result down from microseconds to nanoseconds to picoseconds and so on at every kilo/mega/giga and so on step. 9 is how many clocks the timing I'm looking into takes. Just avoid dealing with fractions, nobody likes that. Use 1600mhz instead of 1.6ghz.

The end result is 1000ms / 1600mhz * 9 = 5.625ns. My CL timing is 5.625ns. If my RAM was at 1866mhz CL9 would mean 4.8231511254~ns.

This is why you watch your timings when you overclock RAM, latency is more important than bandwidth. If you're increasing bandwidth with higher clocks, you can very much lose performance because your timings got bigger and your RAM's latency leaves your cpu idling.

Speccy is too amateurish for overclocking and might get temperatures wrong. Get CPUID HWmonitor or Open Hardware Monitor for linux instead. You want to know the temperature of the cores, not the CPU. The cores can go up to 82 degrees, over that and your pc should automatically turn off or it will probably start burning. So check out what temps they are. I probably can't help you with the rest but if you take my advice you might avoid damaging your pc. Speccy is nice for people who are just getting familiar with their pc, not for serious overclockers. Also check out dem records: https://valid.x86.fr/records.html

Do game makers purposefully fuck with their files so that nobody may see or edit said game assets? A game I downloaded uses these video files (avi) in the game, and they work in-game. Watching the files yourself though, outside of the game, is impossible. Not only that, the video properties are completely blank. I tried it on vlc as well (which comes packaged with all codecs - and then I installed additional patented ones) and that didn't work either.
