Has anyone else come to this phenomenon ?

So i have this lenovo x220 laptop. Amazing machine... Once it was in my car and was left on the floor in the back seat. When i took the pc from the car it was fine but 20 min later pink, green etc colors just started flashing like graphix failure. After that dident post. Removed ram and got it to post 1 time with no beeps and than shut down. Not even fan went on. So i took it apart and but it back together about 3 times (I knew it cant be possible that this pc dies) And am now writing this post from the same pc. No joke. Everything has been fine.

At my parents house there is this lenovo Think Centre D30 in my room. Everything was still like a pc seting should be (screen, mouse etc) but i knew that the pc wont post because of power suply failure (only fans started working for 3-4 sec no post).And i tried to start this pc for 1 year, about 1-2 attemps per month when i was there. And after 1 year and few months this pc is working fine.

Nikon D3100 camera was in a car accident. It was 1/2 under water. When i took it from the car the display had mouisture under it and water was everywhere. No post after 2 weeks of no battery...and than suddenly 6 months later the screen flickered for 3 sec and it was up. Everything ok except AF on lens and battery (Lifetime about 40 min)

Maybe its just me i dont knw.

you don't really need a hard distro. You can install all that crap over an easy distro. Tiling window manager with a bunch of consoles is so played out though.

I just wish the regular window managers would integrate tiling as a feature. Fucking WINDOWS is better at it than most of the shit on linux with its primitive quadrant snapping.

First of all, need hotkeys for splitting windows side by side like Windows has. Then need a modifier key that'll resize two windows that are touching at the same time.

AND THAT'S ALL YOU NEED FOR A BASIC TILING WINDOW MANAGER. FUCK.

I actually really like the shelltile gnome extension. It doesn't have hotkeys so you'd probably hate it, but the gui management is pretty slick.

The separators drag like you'd expect them to. But what stands out the most is that the tiled windows are handled like a single window in all the expose effects and whatnot. So when you expose you get a view of all your tile layers, which is really handy.

It's changed how I interact with gnomeshell. I barely use virtual desktops anymore. I just throw together a tile layer and it gets handled right alongside my floating windows.

I've scanned my system fully with Malwarebytes and Eset using a trial version, but it comes out clean. Also tried rkill, nothing.

BUT. I'm suspicious that somethings there, since every so often the program I'm currently using (most often during switching between different windows) will go out of focus, and I can't click on or use anything until I tab into it again. There's no extra stuff in the tab menu though. Should I just go for safe and reformat or is there anything else I can do to check? Tried pressing ALT+F4 when it unfocused, but it didn't return open software to active, only alt+tab works.

Try malwarebytyes Rootkit killer. Or many of the others. Although it could come down to you not having patched your likely Intel computer (hah, AMD is only susceptible to Spectre v2 and only certain chips). Meltdown and Scepter 1 and 2 install themselves in the CPU, forever. So yeah, if you can't figure it out, format and find your firmware updates for your bios for these. If you have a good amd chip, say a FX8350 or a FX9350 or whatever is even more powerful than the FX-9350, you only have to be slightly worried about Sceptre v2. I got firmware updates for AMD through Linux Mint 17.3 for Sceptre v2.

Maybe make a thumb drive of a Linux version you want, I recommend Boot-Repair OS, it comes with a bunch of forensic and analytics tools, and see how things behave there, and use rkhunter, chkrootkit.. if the windows rootkit apps find nothing, too, could be unfortunate hardware failure somewhere, doing a memtest is a good idea too, a mem stick that starts acting up can cause the weirdest things.

Forgot to get back to the thread, I nuked the windows install and went back to linux already. Would have had to switch in 2020 when Windows 7 security updates stop anyway, and I never would have gotten away from that feeling of knowing something could be there, even if I never found anything.

But this thing about Meltdown/Spectre installing on the CPU, have you read something I haven't? Those were kinda why I was extra suspicious, but they don't really install themselves on the CPU though, they are security holes that are already there and can be abused, correct? How would you install something inherent to the design of the CPU itself?

I need some help /tech/. I've been fucking up my life recently, I'm addicted to pornography and the internet in general and I used to be able to manage it but it's gotten to the point where I'm fucking around online so much it's starting to interfere with the rest of my life. I'm in therapy to help curb some of my addictive behaviors, but therapy takes time and I still need to use a computer for school/work and I need ways to keep myself from getting tempted into going down a porn hole.
Can anyone recommend some good software or a browser addon that would block specific websites, preferably with use of a custom password? I figure the more blocks I have to jump over to get to my distractions the more a chance I have to not succumbing. This isn't a nofap thing or anything self righteous like that, I'm literally just bad at managing my indulgences. Can anyone help a terminally weak willed bro out?

you gotta ween yourself off.

blocking them is the equivalent to cold turkey quitting smoking

gradually add one of your favorite sites one at a time to your block list.

eventually all the ones that immediately pop to your mind are "mentally blocked"

try to forget what they look like too, next step is the digital equivalent to "wear a rubber band and snap it on your arm when tempted."

put songs you absolutely abhor in your porn folder, and you have to listen to some garbage when you have a weak will and broke down to go look.

eventually you rename the folder to "horrible songs"

Look up 'public dns servers.' Add to preferred and alternate dns servers that you are looking for. Some will block certain things. Advertising, popups, adult material.

An ISP can keep logs of peoples websites they visit. Use a public server, that claims to keep no logs is preferable. Even if one has nothing to hide, the data is being collected and sold.

So, I'm active in the music sharing communities, a lot, (it's legal in Canada, they put a tax on CD-R's to give to the labels way back in 2005, supreme court decision).

Sometimes I just have to download something in mp3 form, especially rare stuff, on Soulseek 'cuz even the preeminent trackers or usenet won't find anything. So I get this album and it's in this fucking APS encoding...which I could upload if it wasn't in APS....soulseek doesn't tell what kind of encoding they have beyond kbps. Is it a lossless process or a bad transcode to transform APS mp3 into v0 mp3's ?

Hey /tech/. I posted something similar to this once like 2 years ago when I had some phantom program eating up space on my windows drive, and someone recommended that I install WinDirStat to check it out. More recently space on my drive just keeps shrinking without me adding to it directly (fuckin windows), and I'm wondering if one of you tech gods can take a look at this breakdown and advise if anything stands out that I can just straight up delete.

I know I need to reformat this drive but I'm lazy and really don't feel like doing it right now. Hoping I can clear up some space and do it when I have a little more free time on my hands.

Thanks in advance for the help.

It also tells you the size of items that WinDirStat doesn't have permissions to check, like your System Restore points in system volume information.

Then you can go delete them all from System Restore and make a new one.

Windows backup, shows 0 bytes when you copy it to a external drive. I wonder if this would do the same. I forget the format it is saved as. For helper apps, person likely said spam, because soo many write mediocre applications. AT times steling peoples work and slightly altering it to look like theirs, then hey guys, this app it GREAT! Make a mediocre webpage to point to the app.

Windows becomes unstable. And all that. not a s much today though.
Not as annoying when people do.

I go to this one big box computer stores sometimes, they have boxed fix your computer issues with a click of your mouse they push. i was asking a simple basic question. First thing she did, was not listen to my question ans said, what you need is whatever it's called program, it's (predominately) displayed over there. Not what I need or want to spend 45 buck for. Only to gave it make any computer it is installed unstable. Bragging how many issues it fixes every so
often. This program, above, people like it. I generally try to look at things as
they are. Something is off, generally a simple reinstall fixes everything.
But people who do make decent worthy software should be acknowledged.

Super short version: I want to broadcast what my smartphone is displaying onto my TV, like you would a laptop, for example. The phone is a Samsung j3 eclipse, and the TV is a standard Samsung HDTV, not a smart TV.


More detailed version: I want to watch shit from the WWE network. My only source of internet is my phone, which I have unlimited data on. However, I only have 15 GB per month of hotspot data, which I have already used this month.

I have a media player that plugs into my TV and shows videos off of a flash drive. I had planned on using video downloader apps to download video from the WWE network, based on advice from /wooo that you could watch their videos from a regular browser and not just their own app. That advice was wrong.

I want to watch wrestlemania this sunday, on the TV, not my phone's small-ass screen. Based on what I've looked into so far, it looks like my only option is to watch it with their app, on my phone, and mirror my phone's screen to the tv. I've never done this before, though, and don't know exactly how to do it. I've heard of several devices, but I know some of them require specific phones, and specific TVs, with specific sorts of inputs on them.

Does anyone here have any experience with this? How did you do it? If absolutely have to buy something, be it a cord or (hopefully) inexpensive device, so be it, but I would really like to get some advice from someone who actually does stuff like this, and can tell me from experience.

If the phone and TV both support MHL, you can do this with USB to HDMI. If not, you'll have to screen cast to either the TV or the media player. They probably don't want you to do this, so you may need root.

Okay, so, I've always been interested in hardware. I've tore down old machines, watched a billion and one build guides, and even tried, and failed, to build a machine out of scraps from a bin. But finally, I am ready to construct my own machine out of new parts! This is not only a first build, but a budget build. I gave myself a budget of 400 dollars, and ended up blowing that budget by 200. Hopefully not in vain. All the parts have been ordered, and the last one shipped today, so come Friday, I will have all the parts and all weekend to build, though there *are* a few things I've been wondering about.



Let's start with this: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/diogenesofindy/saved/BYxvVn



This is everything I have ordered so far. I know I'm missing a GPU, but damn it, I just can't afford it. And I know I'm preaching to the choir here, but the prices are simply ridiculous, flat outrageous.



Out of curiosity, I threw that build up on another tech forum, and they said it was a great budget build, but if they were to do anything, they'd get an I3 8100, and the mobo to fit it. Making it this: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/diogenesofindy/saved/v3wQVn

So, in conclusion:
Ps4 controller, keyboard, mouse, interior rgb, and TV rgb all color synced. TV is a 55in 4k TV, the specs on the machine are an I3 8100 processor, GeForce GTX 1050ti 4gb graphics card, 8 gigs of ram (for now), a 250 gb SSD, 4 HDDs totalling 6tb, a legitimately stolen win10 pro, multi-booting Ubuntu with Yumi. Grand total paid: roughly $1260. A huge step up from my 22in 1080p TV, with a dell inspiron 530s from 2003.

I'd have gone for at least a 1060, but the 1050 ti is a better deal than the 3GB 1060, and the 6GB 1060 is twice the price of the 1050 ti.

Plus the 1050 is a pretty decent card to use when you've retired this thing to a NAS box down the road. You can run linux off the motherboard graphics and pass a PCI-E card to a Windows VM to use it for Steam Link.

I just did the hardware VM thing on my desktop, but sound and USB is a bitch and steam link would bypass that and let you shove the bastard in a closet.

It's probably not even worth getting super high end graphics at this point. Nvidia and Microsoft just announced real-time raytracing on next gen GPUs, and the 1050 will probably get you to the generation after that, and hopefully by then you can give yourself a $1500-$2000 budget and go HAM.

>at least a 1060
at most. I meant at most. You'd want an i5 or i7 for 1070 and 1080 setups.

Holy shit that tv as a monitor lol. If you use that for gaming with mouse and keyboard up close get ready to get the shit scared out of you by anything in your periphery. Anyway looks great, hope you enjoy the shit out of it.

Yeah. Between the huge size and the relatively low res that card will be driving you're gonna wanna be halfway across the room. Or I suppose you could just use the bottom left quarter of the screen.

4k got pretty cheap so fast. Goddamn.

Help me understand people who are oh-so-concerned about newly developed AI tools.

Alas, deep fakes, derp fakes, synthesizing Film or other convincing data like voice recordings, 3D models, etc...

Yeah it takes into question the suitability of recordings in curt. And what else?

Then there is this guy (also gives TED talks inventing scary tech related "scenarios")

What's wrong with people? Has decades of machine uprising scifi made everybody so afraid that they won't appreciate simple non-intelligent tools that make menial work unnecessary?

So both my old laptops are broke.One of them makes an extremely loud noise and the keyboard is fucked from spilling tea onto it years ago.
The other one has the screen hanging on by its threads and also makes a big loud nose and doesn't load up for more than 5 seconds.

>What I need it for.
>Browsing the web-I'm sick of only using my iPhone.
>Strewing films onto my tv and playing music when o don't want to use Spotify on my phone.
>secure dark market use so I'll probably want to use tails OS on it
>I would like to start playing about with music making programs for fun
>I'd like to relearn photoshop so I could make cool photos for a business I have planned.

Ive seen you can get some refurbished laptops for about £200

A quick look and these are two laptops that I think would work

Any suggestions ?

Other than browsers sprawling out into crazy amounts of memory, you can also have my situation where some goddamn network driver is allocating buffers on the non-paged memory pool, and then never giving them back.

4GB is mainly only gonna give you problems if you do anything beyond basic use though. Browser plus World of Warcraft is gonna max it out eventually.
And because multi-threaded browsers split up the memory usage across multiple processes, and windows is going to kill the biggest offender, that means nuking your World of Warcraft or big Photoshop images, sometimes without adequate warning.

>wants to relearn PS, wants to play with synthesizers
>wants refurbished shit

>clearly a fag

I think you're confusing us with someone else. Also I bought a refurbished HP Elitebook. Good purchase.

/tech/ has always been driveby support tickets for users who barely know what's going on. I like this place, but I get the feeling you'd might like lain/arisuchan better. They have the sort of vibe you're describing.

A lot of us grow out of that phase. Not everyone in 420chan is a jerk ass.
