Where do you get your software from? by NathanielMucklemare.ds - Thu, 16 Nov 2017 07:37:28 EST ID:8o/yGVct No.121442 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

I just bought a new laptop with windows 10. The OS is using like 20 gigs plus and yet still to do basic things I need to download programs off the internet. For example, I'd like to just reassign or disable my num lock key. It is right next to the delete button and I keep hitting it and I will literally never want my number pad to not be functional which happens often because I keep hitting the num lock key.

Now to do this I'm finding that I have to download some program. Now all the sites I go to seem sketchy as fuck and I get hits from malware blockers that redirect me away from some of them. I've seen sites that are named suspiciously similar to the official site for some project boosted higher in google results, review sites that push suspicious looking downloads and all sorts of high jinks.

I should be able to go to some site where windows has approved software that is virus free, but the windows store has nothing that will do even this basic task.

How do I ensure that what I download is from a legitimate malware-free source?

For Windows I use Chocolatey for a lot of things. It sounds like you could have a hard time with that though. Anyway, I think AutoHotkey is the software you're looking for.

complicated, has been around for ages open source.
Don't install any software that's not open source unless you've personally bought it.

Sooooup /tech/?

After Windows 7 committing suicide like 40 fucking times between 3-4 oem versions on shitty laptop pawnshop specials, I've said fuck it and just want to clone 1 fresh Windows 7 install to 4 or 5 hard drives. I don't give a fuck about licensing and their stupid windows genuine shit always ends up breaking and annoying the fuck out of me anyways.

If I were to just stop dealing with oem factory resets, lost passwords, and shit and just pop new hard drives into my cheap computers; would that work if they are system image cloned from 1 "master" clean install that is never used? I know they won't be activated and would need whatever daz loader that exists now to get rid of all the other black screen nagging shit but would the OS work or is there some blocker programmed in to keep from raid duplication or creating multiple system images? I've googlefu'd and failed, I don't see an answer if you can clone to separate hard drives without the host drive baleeting itself.

I really just want to have dual boot Windows 7/8/10 on my other computers who all started out as OEM versions anyways but ended up running various linux distro's. Thanks hiffwe

Bonus: Didn't daz loader get turned into malware? Is that also only for cracked versions or just any windows genuine spam?

Yea, I use an extra win7 pro as well a linux distribution of choice in vmware,
but it seems to be lass stable, freezes up compared to like 3 4 earlier releases.

About to just give it up or use an earlier version. The current version doesn't seem to work for the most part, if even that. I have had the same setup
scheme for years. I do though have a separate linux /home partition that I use
with ext2fsd to share with windows, that has seemed to act off here and there. Virtualbox I have had a few minor complaints but it has always worked well.

Boosting Cell Phone Signal by JamesWanderwad.asm - Tue, 19 Sep 2017 04:01:10 EST ID:2QDtT/Wc No.121316 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

So, I get my internet as part of my unlimited data cell phone plan, using my phone as a wifi hotspot and picking it up with my pc. But where I live I get shit cell reception. Mountains and all that.

Before anyone suggests I change how I get the internet, I live out in bumfuck egypt and there is no cable, no dsl, no wifi. This is my only choice other than satellite plans with unacceptable data caps. So it's this or go back to dial up.

Anyway, I figured that maybe if i could get more than two bars in the room where my computer is, my download speeds would improve.

I have heard of various signal booster products, like on amazon, with a greatly varying price range, so I thought I would ask people on a tech board about it.

Have any of you ever had to solve this problem for yourselves, and how did you do it? Did you buy a signal booster, and how well did it work? Was it worth the money, and easy to install and use?

At the moment, I'm pretty new to wireless, wi-fi, cell phones, and high speed internet in general, unfortunately, and I gotta start somewhere.

The best solution would be a high gain antenna mounted on the outside aligned with the cell phone tower that gives you the best reception.

First get the opensignal app for your phone and find out the best reception on the locations you could mount an antenna and the direction of the cell tower you are connected to at this point.
Then get a 4g modem with with an external antenna bnc connector and a high gain 4g antenna.
I'd look for "4g antenna" on aliexpress (I never buy electronics from amazon if it's a Chinese product any way)
If you don't know which one to buy go on sort by orders and get the most popular one.

While I do know some of that basic stuff, I really do appreciate seeing someone explain beginner stuff without derision. Too many people act like pricks nowadays just because someone else doesn't yet know what they know, especially online, so it's nice to see you and the other posters in this thread not doing that shit. I've been having a shitty day, and that fact lessens it a bit.

And yeah, even when I'm getting the worst download speed I typically get, it's still way better than when I was using dial up. The dial up here was terrible, like, "you're pleased to get 8kb/s on a download" terrible.


>>121376
Videos, Steam stuff, mods, you name it. I'd like to live as what has become a normal person, with the ability to buy games digitally, keep my games and other software updated, get instructions for and answer questions about things online while the situation is still relevant. Maybe even play online multiplayer on occasion.

Sometimes I do watch or download youtube stuff at low res, but sometimes a lot is lost in the lowering of the detail.




Anyway, my main thing is that Verizon has me for around $80 a month, and after my 15gb limit on 4g speeds for mobile hotspot data, i'm supposed to be getting downgraded to ~600kb/s download speed, which would be ok, if I actually got that. The best I get is around 100-120kb/s. Since it's my only real choice, I'm just looking to more get my money's worth out of it.

About an hour later I could hear the "Ding-ding!" money sound from chaturbate or whatever coming through the vent.

How do I see whats connected to my IP and see whats going on through that?

Depends on your router. Clients is likely how many devices are connected to your computer. Your connection, a smartphone, her connection.

Try this is your router like way out dated. you can check the 'build version'. If it's out dated you can flash an updated version which is basically easy. Often just pressing a button to update on some routers.

The 'port scan' may just be some random nothing. https://www.grc.com/shieldsup to see if any ports are open on your computer. It's as basic a start as you can get to start. If all is green then it should be cool.

numbers like 209.143.252.20 are IP addresses. This would translate to quaker.com

What router do you have? poke around. Get a newer router. Most routers can translate like above so you can see what addresses are being accessed.

Sort of depends. I rate this shit by potential audience. While some platforms may be more robust and easier to use, if the video isn't seen, what good is it? You don't want to be uploading to some obscure, bottom of the Google search page, platform even if it is the best technically out there. Unless of course that is your audience. Usually the Youtube and FB live streams are where the viewers are at.

Depends on where you live, whether your ISP cares, and whether rightsholders are sitting on the torrents. You can go a long time without getting a copyright strike, and then if your ISP changes policy and you're downloading something where the rightsholder is really protective, suddenly you're getting them.

Never gotten one with my VPN on. Also, less common sources and protocols can keep you safer.
