Hey guys,

After a long process of elimination (based on price + reviews) I ended up with the BenQ ZOWIE XL2411P 144Hz as a potential purchase.

I truly don't know much about 144Hz monitors, hence why I'd really appreciate hearing your thoughts on this one. Also if you think there are better deals out there, I am 100% open to recommendations.

Thanks in advance for your help!

You're a fucking idiot. The time it starts is when you receive the prompt. If it's a midterm then you just study and you have to write the paper in the allotted time during the test (usually around 2 hours) without a computer which significantly increases the amount of time it takes to write it. Go to college and see you absolute fuckong dolt.

If you don't think a students parents paying for their kids new expensive laptop that they could live without such an expensive one,, tuition, everything. Sending money while their kids slack off and act like asses because of that 'freedom.' Don't you think the parents expect each class, each assignment, that the moment they walk into class that that is the beginning of having time to
use every moment in the class to essentially study.

One may get an assignment, then have it suddenly change. Kinda like pop quizzes. Like "are you paying attention?" Or just what kinda barely sinks in and will worry about details later.

Know what is expected as well not expected. Some professors will change an assignment just like that. From typed to written, from written to an on the spot oral presentation, to a demonstration.

We got sudden 10 page topics due the next morning, why? because. The class that day was a teachers presentation, not just teaching, but a noticeable presentation of the subject(s.) Thise who payed attention and especially saw what was coming, went home, did their work and
others were completely lost. 10 fkn pages from just one presentation by the instructor.
Or were these ongoing assignments from day one?

Corporations used services provided by [email protected], to name one, back when cell phones I don't think even remotely existed. Although two way radios, fm radio, uses trunks, 'to communicate from one to another.' These, [email protected], others, services allowed trunk access to make possible switching to long distance calls for corporations from local lines.

Trunkin I gues you could call it, has many applications, cell phones, whatever communication you can really think of. They differ greatly of course. I believe home networking is just as trunk access, switching, as anything else. As well, say lighting, um, concerts. It is communication from one party to anothers party.

This is from mostly memory from the past. And lots of studying stuff that may seem insignificant or boring. I am not that old but have worked for, with significant persons of technology. Me doing work for people who worked on components like zip drive, cd technology. Professors from like MIT, others who worked on .gov technology. technology that makes today's technology what it is. Although not knowing part of what these people are talking about, I guess i seemed enough to carry on hours of conversation. Which older technology seems basically boring, applying it to today's technology, it makes sense. If one cannot understand older technology,
how will they actually understand here and now technology. Sure you can do it, but knowing the background of like tor, understanding DNS basics. It is all worthwhile.
-
Anyway, a hacker of significance. John Draper. AKA Captain Crunch. Why capn crunch nick. More than one reason. However, he tried to sell known technology, among other known uses of switching. Made some money but not a great venture.
What he was selling was; simple tones would make phone services do it's thing, like corporations could utilize long distance, calling for commerce, etc. By switching into trunk lines. Others learned to do this also. He furthered these but few were interested. So, after Apple, and all this.

He did make a whistle, it put out a 2600Mhz frequency. So could make long distance calls. He learned this from laying lines.
What they can and are meant to accomplish by which means. This whistle, one could go to a pay phone and whistle and
access the trunk and switch. Free phone calls.

So Peter Dutton, Australian Minister of the Home Office and suspiciously wealthy ex Queensland drug cop, has looked at China's Jingwang Weishi software and thought "fuck yeah, let's do that." Legislation towards forcing backdoor software onto AT LEAST mobile phones is being discussed (and in every interview he keeps using the word "computer" so it's safe to assume he plans to backdoor any device his fat potato fingers can fingerbang).

https://www.circlejerk.com/r/australia/comments/9ildrd/spyware_on_phone_fears_as_dutton_pushes_new/

So here is my question. How do I go about defeating this tyrannical bullshit?

Is it a matter of keeping obsolete technology for shady dealings? Is the answer always Linux? Should I just trust in the sheer incompetence of the Australian government?

Cellphones are all hopelessly compromised. Off the shelf phones can't be secured against threats like this. There's a startling lack of detail to go off of, but in general you want to be using end to end encryption on devices that you have complete control over without relying on third party services for privacy. So Whatsapp on your phone is an easy target and it's surely what they have in mind, but if you use XMPP+OTR on your Linux laptop and tether it to your phone then that's well beyond the reach of an Australian government order. The flip side is that these more resilient technologies are less popular and easier for the state to block without protest.

Phones have some locked up chain of trust on their SoC that you can't in any way modify without destroying the phone completely and irreversibly. That chain of trust eventually leads to firmware and google stallionery that boots linux and then android, which is just more google stallionery. Some phones probably have built in hardware that has its own little processor or so, so they can do basic stuff even when the phone is off and android (or whatever OS you use) isn't even running. Even using custom stuff like cyanogen, lineage etc aren't safe from the SoC that runs them, so you can never be sure.

The same problem with desktop and laptop computers, all the ones with intel CPUs have IME, and AMD ones have some equivalent things. It's been trendy to add separate processors to processors that do stuff like signing and checking firmware and CPU microcode and manages stuff, and these have network access too - you don't even need to boot your OS they can do stuff anyway.

Trying to circumvent these is like trying to think about the pink elephant without using your brain or body. You are fucked. Of course governments don't have infinite resources so with certain levels of preparedness, you can get lucky, probably.

Aliminum to "Extend" Audio Jack Cable by NathanielMangerbanks.phtml - Wed, 03 Oct 2018 22:52:21 EST ID:VoJoQBVu No.122027 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Hey guys!

Alright, I'm really bad when it comes to things like this, hence this (very likely) stupid post.

The right side of my Audio-Technica headphones isn't working anymore. I don't know whether or not it's merely the cable.

Here's the thing though: I can't test it with a spare audio jack because of its design. It is too deep than for me to reach the actual port.

The picture highlights the aforementioned problem so that hopefully by now you understand what I'm going on about. So to sum it up, the "overextending" part of the cable is supposed to go in as well, so that it is far enough to make contact.

So finally here comes my question. Could I just put some aluminum foil at the end of the cable in order to reach the port and establish a connection? Or, is this the worst and dumbest idea in the history of /tech/? Also what would be the potential risks (assuming it is even worth trying).

Well at least I'm asking before doing anything since I really don't want to wreck my headphones, which I truly love and miss so much.

Thanks in advance my friends. Any tip on how to test if it's just the cable or not will definitely be greatly appreciated.

The cable is male on both sides. So yeah, I can definitely output it to my computer.

But again the problem is the completely unreachable input coming from the headset end.

I'm thinking of making the switch from 60hz to something like 120 or 144hz. I'm doing some research myself but was curious what you guys thought would be the best monitor that is affordable but not sacrificing much in quality. I was thinking the ASUS VG278Q.

VG278Q and AOC G2460PG are in similar price ranges and I used both. I liked the colors on them compared to Benq which I always thought were extremely washed out, if you end up going with the ASUS there is a color profile you can find on google which makes it shine. The switch is worth it for any FPS, if you need a monitor for color work you are still better off with an IPS though

Haven't had a computer for years mainly used my iphone or shitty kobo and someone else's laptop when ive needed to type out anything decent..

Now I want to get one and dunno whether to buy one of these refurbs or not.

I don't even really know what one to get as there are so many.

I want to start messing about making music and Im planning on getting some decs to use with it..So im guessing im going to need a decent sound card ??

other than that it will just be used for general internet browsing and using word/pdf documents maybe watching films so maybe something for a hdmi port (but saying ive have a amazon stick with kodi and netflix)

Dont think there is much else I need..would be nice to be able to play some new low spec games but Ill hardly play them any way.

The most I want to pay is like £300 really

ive seen this for £329

>>122005
Manufacturer refurbished means a return that was either remanufactured or more likely inspected quickly and repackaged. Third party refurbished means whatever the refurbisher says it means. You should treat these items as used, but good refurbishers sell consistently good used equipment. How do you know it's a good refurbisher? Good reviews and some detail about their process/standards.

If you don't mind looking like an accountant, have a look on eBay for refurbished ThinkPads. You should be able to find a decent one for under £200, easily. Seeing as you mentioned wanting to get into music, try to find one with the highest amount of RAM that you can find, you'll thank me later when your DAW isn't hanging like a bitch.

As for sound cards, the ones built into laptops are almost invariably shite across the board. Have a look at the FocusRite Scarlett range of USB audio interfaces, I've owned one in the past and they're nice pieces of kit. Stay away from old Tascam stuff like the US-122; cheap as shit these days but the drivers are ancient and mine would BSOD my computer all the damn time.

Don't buy from Currys, they're a bunch of rip-off merchants who rely on the public's ignorance of tech specs to flog nasty plasticky rubbish. Their godawful adverts boil my piss, too.

If you can buy locally, like in hte US there is craigslist. refurbished from non-manufacturers stores, sites, ebay as well could be simply an opened box.

Maybe used for a while maybe and people realize it was not enough for what they needed it for. Or incompatable for their needs. Third party from people,
coule get a beyond excellent deal. Here is one, my room mate moved and left
a laptop, I don't know what to do with it. $20. Reality, worth $1,2000?

Refurbished from mnufacturers, usually somebody got a computer that could be fixed, was fixed, but should have worked correctly for years n the first place, soo.

Avoid Behringer interfaces too. They're shit and their preamps suck and the USB mixers never work.

I'd also highly recommend the Presonus Audiobox. I've had it actually work on AV Linux the literal second I plugged it in. It took probably 20 minutes on Windows 7 to get working but Linux worked instantly with Mixbus and Ardour. Speaking of which, Ardour is my favorite DAW. It is set up more for people who don't have an engineer sitting at a desk while they perform or whatever. If you got to track shit and play at the same time, Ardour is the best imo. AV Linux also supports lots of cool freeware stuff that isn't shit like Hydrogen, Ardour, Musescore, and a CD burning thing that I can't remember the name to but it pretty simple decent. It also rarely crashes. And when it does, it is only program crashes. When Reaper crashes on Windows, it takes out everything and bluescreens with various errors. I had maybe 3-4 crash to desktop with AV Linux in 2 years of use. It also ships with a fucking mountain of plugins already built in and working for Ardour which is very nice. Reaper comes with like nothing comparatively.

I'd go back to AV Linux if it wasn't for my video editing on Windows and my gaymes.

Also, don't use the default 3.5mm jacks for anything. USB, Thunderbolt, or Firewire for audio. Don't use anything else for audio. Seriously, soundcards are more for surround sound and people just wasting money. I've done super high quality audio production for a few years now and never once needed a soundcard. Save that money and buy yourself a nice microphone. SM58 is a good start for vocals. SM57 for a jack of all trades mic. And a large diaphragm condenser mic for when you need one. Use samples for drums unless you are really prepared to spend lots of money. I spent well over 1k to get "studio quality" drums tracked into a DAW. And that is just mics, cables, and stands. EZ Drummer is like 140 dollars. You won't even get a good pair of overheads and their stands/cables for that. Also, an 8 channel interface or more is best. I'm using 15 out of 18 available channels atm to track drums.

The most bullet proof advice is to write the image either on a non-Mac PC or a Virtualbox/VMWare/Parallels VM. Try recent Youtube videos if old or undated guides are letting you down. If you press option when you boot and don't see an option for Tails/Windows, the Tails image has not been written correctly.

In addition to just working, having a dedicated Tails machine(s) is a best practice.

Not in general, no. That's the direction Apple is going though.

That's what random nobodies keep saying. If there were credible reasons to believe it though, the loudest voices would offer evidence and reasoned argument which you probably haven't seen.
