Unfortunately for the smaller backers, GPD's not a great shipping center and the single orders are shipping slower than the big batches. Also, it seems like they're still fiddling with Ubuntu trying to get it working.

Seemed like they stopped shipping for a bit because a lot of the early shipped units had build-quality issues. I think they were trying to fix those, but it's hard to tell because they haven't been communicating great.

Sounds like the biggest flaw for the system (that isn't just a loose connection during the build) is the wifi. People are saying it's pretty crap. We'll see.

I've got a 10" iWork tablet, similar specs (3gb RAM instead of 8GB but otherwise pretty much the same) and the keyboard attachment, cost me about $300 NZD, the GPD pocket would cost $840 NZD, so like 500$ more for a device a bit smaller. What's the point??

Ubuntu version starts shipping friday. Apparently they mostly just used the community's work after the windows versions were released. Devs seem slightly irritated with GPD. The guy who implemented fixes to the kernel asked for one to develop on and they denied him.

Finally got mine. It's a pretty handy little device. Keyboard wasn't quite as hard to get used to as I thought. You're not going to transcribe at full speed on it, but I'm able to type as fast as I can code, which is fine.

I was lucky to get one shipped at the end of the run. I don't have any of the quirks except the weak wifi antenna, which seems to be universal.

They shipped me the Windows one by accident, but I installed the community's Ubuntu spin, and it runs like a dream.

Hey whats up /tech/

Don't laugh at me (or do...) but I'm still learning how to crack torrents here. Right now, I'm trying to get some music software on my computer, which would of course require an authorization code...

As I understand it, I need to do the following:

1.) Download the software
2.) download the crack
3.) delete the source code of the original software on terminal and replace it with the software found on the crack.

Somewhere along the line this didn't work for me, so i thought I'd ask you whats up.

Here's a pic of all the downloads... (I downloaded the installer, followed by the update, then followed by the crack if that makes a difference.)

> 3.) delete the source code of the original software on terminal and replace it with the software found on the crack.

You should be able to just copy the crack into the program directory. The absynth 5 application in the crack should overwrite the original.

BTW, usually cracks come with instructions.

hey dog thanks for the help…

so right now I’m inside of the “package contents” of the original absynth software. When I go to replace the original code resources with the cracked one I get the message:

“you don’t have permission to write to this folder”

As you can see in the picture, I’ve already moved the code signature from the crack to the code signature of the original software. Before I try to launch the thing and fuck everything up I wanted to check your opinion on if it would be cool to…

1.) just leave it like that.
2.) delete the original leaving only the cracked code resource
3.) make a duplicate of the original code resource, copy/paste the crack into the duplicate, and then leave the new file

Or, if you know any dope tricks on how to write on the original code resources without permission that sounds like the most logical thing to me. I just wouldn’t know how to jump through those hurdles.

Thanks playa. one love.

yup, i tried all 3 and failed.

the only thing that i can think of is that you need to copy the crack to the unaltered ORIGINAL code resources without making a duplicate. And again, I can't do anything to that code resource file because it "you don't have permission to write to this folder".

My private research on various forums have been to no avail, So if there's any real life badasses out there who can aid me that'd be hella sick.

How come you talk like a wigger from 15 years ago? You may not be able to write to the file because it's open or you need additional privileges to modify installed apps. Anyway, if the instructions aren't clear, my best guess would be to look for detailed cracking instructions for more popular apps to see what's supposed to be going on.

Some time back, I installed a simple app to be an NTP server. The app was 5 bucks but to make it work you has to sped $5 bucks. Used a serial and it complained, hey man, whatever, 5 bucks is not much money. Maybe it was 15. Regardless it fully deleted anything regarded to everything. No network or that would have screwed everything up. Person(s) was more into hacking than selling his simple product. I would have bought it. I guess.

>minimize your download speeds, cut your upload speeds to almost nothing. Minimize your peers to like 5 should help. Stop downloads when they are done. Do not share dozens and dozens of files at a time. That is basically what they are looking for.

That's not how torrents work. Once OP connects to a swarm, the entire swarm can see his IP. OP's transfer speed means nothing. Limiting connections doesn't not affect his visibility to the swarm.

>Do not share dozens and dozens of files at a time.

That depends on what files he's sharing. If he's sharing Expendables movies he's going to get caught - they still watch those torrents. After torrenting Real Time With Bill Maher for years I finally got a Notice And Notice from HBO in June. This month? Nothing. If OP is sharing old or obscure content he'll probably never get caught because the owners won't care. Nobody's losing money because of vhs rips of Forever Knight on Pirate Bay.

>That's not how these ISP warning emails work. They emails come from your ISP but they do not originate there. There isn't someone watching and when you hit X amount you get an email.

uploads is what they are more concerned with. Say one has 80% upload speed with ten of the newest movies albums, without unlimited peers for weeks on end and in the end they manage to have uploaded a few of terabytes thate gets notice. The EFF on lawsuits explains to not upload files from your computer.
A quick downwload of 3 gigs at 3MBs and 15 kbs up minimizing peers and speeds for uploads (sharing)
one may have uploaded maybe 75 kbs by the time the 3 gig file is done.

Sharing uploads is more resource intensive and that in the past created throttling.

>A torrent gets tagged, whatever company it is sends out notices to the ISP and then the ISP sends you the warning email(HBO and Disney are particularly bad about this). Not all ISPs will send them but most do. Regardless your DL speed and whether or not you upload has nothing to do with it.

The more you upload the more $$$ the industry see as a loss. Limiting peers and speeds to near nothing
will barely see a loss. If one is downloading and uploading the same file at the same time that is a little bit more easily identifiable. A quick download and barely uploading 50 kbs will likely not be noticed.
Sure people have gotten warnings for downloading a file, but as well they almost certainly were uploading at the same time and left the file to be uploading 244/7.

hey /tech/

so i had this old seagate 1TB external for years, it was attached to this shitty plastic base external powerpack which eventually broke (the powered base thing)

so i stripped the plastic shell, and plugged the HD on to my power supply and sata worked fine but slow

one day it stopped working, when i plug it in you can hear it loading very loudly (might get recognised for a second) then gone and tries to reload.. seems to be in a constant state of trying to boot

i dont hear any clicks from it either. i tried several things like looking at all connecetd devices and it was a no-show. also tried a usb > sata connector same

im assuming it must be a hardware issue. what steps can i take to save any of the files.

any help appreciated cheers folks

The most realistic fix:
Broken sata cable and/or port, so try it with another cable and/or port, clean the contacts.

Buy the same exact hard drive and try replacing the whole electronics pcb with the one off the one you bought.
This will probably not work, but if you are desperate it's pretty much the only thing you can do yourself.

If the data is that important to you then I would send it in to a recovery specialist.

In the future you should really be backing up important data. At the very least onsite backup+ offsite backup(can be through a cloud). At 1tb this should be pretty cheap.

For my media server I run 3 disks of parity(192tb raw) plus an identical backup and really important data gets upped to the cloud and put on a separate drive and stored in an anti-static bag in my safety deposit box.

I'm trying to install windows xp on an old laptop (why xp? the laptop is 10 years old and licensed for xp.)

The install disc I had keeps asking for a license key, and rejects the one on the sticker on the bottom of the computer. So I torrented one, but it's in Russian (lucky I understand Russian, but I'd prefer English since I'm giving the computer to my wife) and fails when copying the files to .

Then I found that the first install disc I tried stopped booting. Jeez. I'm starting to remember why I went to Linux.

Can anyone suggest a good way to install some kind of windows XP? Is ReactOS good enough yet? I seem to remember there was some kind of cracked version which was like what Linux folks call a distro? Basically I have no idea what I'm doing.

As far as old driver, no big deal. I believe deb releases are

How does everyone feel about this new Linux Phone crowd funding effort? Especially if securephone guy is still around, what do you think?

They're trying to separate the phone/radio stuff from the cpu stuff to be more secure. Also there's hardware killswitches for Bluetooth/cam/wifi/etc.

Sounds pretty ideal, but $600 to buy in... Plus it's crowdfunding, which you never know if it will deliver. Anyone know much about this company?

It's going to have to be a custom board in low volume, so the unit cost won't be competitive.

I would bet money that phones will ship with all the important stuff like kill switches. I would also bet money that the software will be lacking and the overall UX will be janky.

Hello, fellow 420channers.

I, once again, came to ask for a piece of advice.

I built a PC from brand new components, but my CPU fan is too loud and it sounds a little incosistent. This is my setup (no GPU involved):

MB Gigabyte B250M-D3H, s.1151, DDR4
CPU Intel Core i5-7500 (3,4 GHz, 6MB, LGA 1151) BOX, KabyLake
RAM Kingston 2x8GB DDR4 2400MHz CL17 SR x8 (KVR24N17S8K2/16)
HDD SSD Samsung 850 EVO, 2.5", 250GB, SATA III, Basic
CORSAIR VS550, 80+, 550W

I use the fan, which was in the CPU package. Perhaps the fan itself is shitty and this is causing the problem. However, I collected some data, while in BIOS and I would like to know whether these are normal.

Loud fans are usually due to bad wiring or a bad fan it self or a dying fan. Get it a new one. The CPU temp is well on the average side and I doubt it has anything to do with that.

49 sounds high for a new CPU. what you want is firm metal-to-metal contact between the CPU and the heat sink. the thermal paste is just to fill air bubbles.
