Just set up an old Win7 PC as a simple headless NAS controlled by VNC.

Going to use it as a 24/7 seedbox for some private trackers. What are clients you recommend from personal experience?

Ease of remote connectivity and administration is a factor. I want to control it from an android tablet device. I tried using uTorrent Remote for a simple solution on another network environment a while ago and found it finicky and limited. Thinking of using android app Transdroid but not sure of what client I should use.


I did a google search for a client and got this by JarvisLightham.cat - Thu, 01 Sep 2016 18:33:08 EST ID:UUnuj+Nr No.119727 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

I am not a cyber security expert or white hat hacker, by any means. One of my clients asked me if i could help with the Stagefright vulnerability because she claims she is getting hacked daily. I work with children-hers specifically, I am just a computer user who knows how to google and had some friends in the game back in the 90s, now she thinks I am bill fucking gates or something. Any advice I can offer this lady in the off chance that she is not a paranoid schizo or something? I hate to take her money, which she is throwing at me as I am no expert. Reasons I am concerned for her mental health include: mild crazy eye, absolute vagueness about every aspect of her business that I inquire about, angelic themes in her email address and child's name, and she latches on to me ( a glorified summer camp counselor) for her cyber/mobile security needs. The image is the email I received today, any advice would be appreciated.

She sounds like a regular hysterical female

Would advice her to have a backup phone
show her how to change simcard and keep her client contacts backed up

Also a livecd so she can boot her computer on if anything goes wrong
General security advice
I think that should calm her down a bit

OP back for the update. its a wall of text. i was drunk last night and I messed up the 2nd picture so the screen capture is in two parts. sorry. You get a copy paste version of the email as well. unfortunately I already agreed to do "a little research" , i also told her that there is no holy grail or perpetual motion. . . here it goes.

Thanks a ton for your willingness to help!

I need to publish a phone number and email on my site, so people can reach me. So I need to have a line that is on most of the time, at least to receive voice mails, and for me to pick up those calls, when I can.

I don't like the idea of a landline. I guess I think those are cumbersome, expensive, and I may want to take the phone with me when I'm out and about. Also I like to keep my phones in faraday boxes whenever not in use. Its a bit tough to put a landline phone into a faraday box.

I had a basic android for this purpose and that was the phone that got hacked first. Now I know how. They just sent a txt msg, with hidden malicious code hidden in the text. I saw the text msg. It was a random msg from a random number, which they sent to a number that I used as a private number for clients who've already scheduled sessions. It was a relatively new number so I knew everyone who had that number. So the random bs txt msg asking me if I want bills now or later from a number I don't know was a red flag. At that time, I didn't know that' show they hacked the phone, I just thought they wanted to see how I'd respond, or if there was anyone there. So I just deleted that gmail account and google voice number. Then later I formatted that phone. All that, to say that I'm not sure I want to use an android to be the main business line, even if I turn off the automatic download for txt msgs. because its too easy for hackers to find that public phone number online, and find various vulnerabilities in the os system or in gmail, and hack the phone and/or account.

Right now I have no phone number for business, so I need to come up with a solution fast.

I bought a Rally by Kyocera for $10. I figured the cheaper it is the harder to hack probably. Don't know if that's true.

I mean she isn't totally dumb but sounds like toooooo much trouble. I'd definitely drop the 'I'm not qualified for what you want, I know as much as you do line' and hopefully refer her to someone who can 'help' her and deal with the crazy.

i am in too deep. my plan is to research phone and text forwarding services so that she can have an anonymous cell phone and an IT team to manage her business calls
I am open to suggestions.

It's probably OS updates, or a tool you downloaded checking for updates.
Or.... the site you visited loaded a resource from a third-party.

Gettign data off old laptop hard drives by FrederickChippermetch.cbl - Wed, 24 Aug 2016 04:12:46 EST ID:GaxmPJ1m No.119680 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

I have a total of 4 laptops of various designs that won't switch on anymore. I'm guessing that the motherboards are fried. What would be the easiest way to get information off all the hard drives? Or at least render them such that no one will be able to access that information anymore when I sell the laptops.

The laptops are rather interesting pieces of computing history, by the way. Two pre lenovo thinkpads and an Asus eeepc in chrome with a Japanese keyboard. There is also a Toshiba Libretto I was rather fond of. I had stepped on it one morning and it entered a permanent state of death.

My parents still have their first laptop from 93-94 somewhere. It has Win 3.1 on it and still started up and ran about five or six years ago when we found it in a closet.

I bet if it holds a gig of ram on it you could get win 7 on it to work pretty. You can nlite a copy of win xp pro and it would work just fine, more ram even better. I
had a laptop from like 2000 1999 2001? and it worked great with an nlited XP. It takes some trial and error. And takes a lot of thinking and some time until your head hurts, but after 3 times or so you would know what works and what does not to have a fast functional system. Find drivers for internet or whatever if needed. It really isn't that old of a system in regards of what it still can do.
I had a computer from 2000 that was mostly on until 2002? Working most
of the time as intended.

Throw a linux on it. XP its-self needed like just 312mb of ram or so to operate.

I hope this is the right board-section to ask.
If not, point me to the right direction, please! :-)

I was just asking myself (also because I want to maybe buy one for scuba diving):

Does the GoPro really record in this (nearly) perfect image or is all of it tuned and redefined in post-procesing?

What the hell is with the red on the original video? I've watch 100ish hours of diving footage on Go Pro and have never seen them.

Also likely that every video has been graded. Grading is absolutely necessary unless you were filming in a very controlled environment, and even then you want it to make shit pop.

You can also undistort the image in post

There's a loss of effective resolution, as you'd expect but it makes a big difference. Color correction also makes a big difference for any video if you feel like bothering.

Turns your video from a Martha Stewart iphone food tweet to a pleasing image.

I'd be willing to bet absolutely every video on the official channel is in fact post-processed.

OP, be aware that if you take a GoPro scuba diving, you might get very dark video with very short range unless it is either EXTREMELY CLEAR AND SHALLOW where you go OR you bring lamps which are like about as powerful as THE SUN.

So I just wanted to get some actual personal experience rather just reading constant reviews, I was looking for a nice digital camera for photography (gonna keep the thread short) and I was trying to spend only 500$ max, my main interest is still photos so the main thing i'm searching for is mostly pure definition. Any brand and model recommendations?

>bonus points for attachments of photos you've taken with the recommended camera.

pic related... one of my dogs, took it with a friends cannon (couldn't tell you the model)

Or is it worth (obviously will be worth but just for a novice) to spend the extra buck for an expensive camera. Im not loaded or anything by any means, but I do really enjoy photography

NIKON (metadata,) Can be removed if wanted. Expensive cameras I believe can leave this data out. Or remove it from the pictures easily without 3rd party software.

Anyway, sure why not. If your into photography. Yea get mid-level experienced equipment, learn all that to a respectable point. sell of the older stuff and get advanced equipment.

Is this the brand of OP's friends camera, or is it your recommendation for OP?

I also found references to Nikon in the metadata of OP's picture of their dog, in the form of Nikon Makernote data, but that's just the format of the metadata so I'm not sure if that means that camera is a Nikon, though I would guess that probably it is.
