So ive been working on a offline project recently and part of it talks about bayesian thinking, i hadnt googled it i hadnt looked at any youtube videos nothing.

So today i was editing my project and then went onto youtube, i recently removed my watch history to clear up the algorythm and then it starts suggesting videos about bayesian thinking and bayes rule.

Ami just being really paranoid or is google able to see what you're doing even when you arent browsing the internet?

Ye man but do you think that google really says "ah they dont have accounts, we wont bother them". No1 Cmon! They still use other ways to build a profile about you

if you are active on any social media, especially G+, twitter or FB (yes, they sell your info to Google, among others), just having ONE of your known friends mention Bayesian thinking on some post somewhere, it will apply that to you as well.

This is especially true if Google knows you're working together.

It still applies no matter how many profiles you have, once Google & co. can out that you're the same person, and it will mix the profiling info across those accounts (this is true for both my work and home account)

Even if you don't have a profile, as long as you stay on the same PC, Google can and will build a profile around that PC. In this case, if you'd be searching far and wide for gay porn, all the other users on same PC (if they don't use a login) will get a suspicious amount of gay porn in their searches.

LinkedIn and FB are particularly scary. My workplace recently got a new employee... the only mails about this were sent through company servers (onsite Exchange), and my FB is not in any way connected to either my primary mail address, nor do I have anybody at work as FB friends. I haven't even met the guy in real life! Yet, the guy shows up as a recommended friend or connection...

The only plausible way LI and FB could have gotten that info, would have been if they bought it from Google ( i use Chrome only for diagnosis and the search A LOT at work, though never with my private account) and Google would have listened in on my other Firefox / Chrome tabs, my webmail and my Outlook client. I should note that I personally never access social media at work apart from company marketing/promotion profiles...

Hey /tech/,

TL;DR I'm going to make the switch to Linux soon but I'm wary that I've missed out some important things to consider

So in preparation of making The Great Transition, I'm looking at a few websites that showcase Linux eqivalents, namely these ones:


I'm also reading through the documentation to Debian as I've decided that I want to put the LXDEbian distro on my old Acer Aspire One netbook first in order to get things set up tastily and familiarise myself before I switch over on my gaming rig too. I'm anticipating that it'll require a bit more thought as detailed by this thread:


Lastly, I don't want to get anything wrong so I'm going to follow good practice by not going online at all until I've figured everything out that comes in the stock distro before I start adding/updating software. I will be RTFM of everything I want to use, and I am also making extensive notes based off of this section of the Debian Manual:

That's not good practice and you're not a sysadmin. You're not even a user yet.

Sorry, I wasn't being clear. I'm going to be putting the Debian distro on my netbook utilising the LXDE desktop environment.

To put my mind at ease I'd rather harden the environment from stock, and then loosen the security/find a work-around that maintains security when I find I need something that's been disabled.

I will be going online to update all the things eventually, but whie I'm getting everythng set-up i'll just be relying on the latest stable long-term support release. I'd rather be cautious going forward than to do this willy-nilly and find out there are holes all other the place from not hardening things properly. I will be looking at the manuals for the latest stable release of all software that I'm going to come into contact with too, just so that I'm not surprised by any new features/options that get may get added.

You don't have to be a sysadmin to care about the security of your data.

Hey /tech/ I was wondering if I could get some help configuring this little hotspot I just bought.

So I purchased a Netgear AC791L hotspot from Verizon. I got it because I wanted it as portable internet for playing my Switch. I can connect to the internet with it fine, I can even dl updates and get into the eshop. However when I actually try and join a match it just gives me a “NAT Traversal” error and kicks me. This is just a configuration problem right? I’m rather ignorant about this stuff and was hoping someone here might know what settings I need to change to make this hotspot work with my switch?

Thank you

The problem is that Verizon is giving you a shared IP address and isn't trying to route incoming connections to you. You either need to pay for additional services or use a tunnel of some kind, probably a VPN on a separate router.

Thanks for the ideas. I'm going with your double- boiler concept by connecting a hose to one of these cheap beverage dispensers. I can put my steel pot in through the top, sealing off excess space with aluminium foil if necessary.

So this is the plan. Can I avoid having a pump in the double boiler stage?

Why not just make a hotplate from dead CPUs?

Older Pentium 1s (and most other socket 7s) can be hooked to 3.3 or 5 volts and can get hot enough to melt chocolate and fry eggs.

Newer CPUs (like the P4 in the link below) can be "misused" in the same way, provided you know the socket pinout. Without the motherboard (and BIOS) in the way, they won't shut off...

linky: http://www.instructables.com/id/Hot-Plate/

With newer CPUs you'll need to play a bit with the power supply (lower voltage, more amps) to get it to work...

For a dehydrator, you can use, say a PC case and some fans, but you need a bit more bang on the heating side... multiple CPU "hot plates" in parallel could do the trick, but realistically, you'd need a proper heating coil unless you want to waste power

You and I, the one reading this, we are connected through what basically is an enormous neural network that we have no capability of understanding. I want it to be let known that there is a reason why you are reading this right now. There are forces trying to upset the Net. Huge governmental forces of a collapsing empire.

Fortunately for us, they can never truly shut down the Net. We will exist in the shadows. These forces have co-opted you since birth to believe that there is a certain kind of person that you are supposed to be and that your existence is simply limited to its own rules and regulations.

You are more than a career, or an identity. You are an enormously complicated being that is far more powerful than just that.
We cannot change the System, but we can create our own reality. Use whatever skills you have, whether it be painting, carpentry, coding, cracking, hacking, tinkering, screwing around, duct taping, stacking rocks, kludging, or whatever it may be, to create the reality that you desire.

P.S.: Reality is a computer program, or at least follows certain parameters of a computer program. Do not ignore the quantum. It can be hacked.

P.P.S. We exist as a loosely connected set of individuals. We will never fall under a label or a group name. You know who you are.

you think it, you name it, someone else has thought of it and researched it
and soon, we wont even have to use our fingers to type the query
the human neural network will send information to every other surrounding node within range which will then do the same to their nodes
this will happen involuntarily and rapidly
just imagine how many questions you have googled per day in the past
now multiply that by 7 billion and imagine that many queries being sent across the node network and the answers being relayed back
it will likely work similar to stack overflow, where people will very quickly confirm or deny an answer to a query
the beauty is that it doesn't matter if you're right or wrong. the Knowledge of the Crowd[1] will ensure that the right answer will eventually bubble to the top after n number of nodes have been sent the query

  1. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Wisdom_of_Crowds
in order to improve the inherent accuracy of the Wisdown of the Crowd, we'll likely use demographics to filter out less desirable verdicts of the validity of query's answer
I know what you're thinking, but no, no, it's not going to be racist
we're just going to silently negate all the negro verdicts
or we could even, oh my god, this is perfect, we could even isolate the negro queries AND answers into their own virtual sandboxed bubble environment

Nope, we'll use their job, experience and education (social media already have those infos on you).

Negro or not... the system won't work if there is no proper basis and template. It doesn't make sense to ask a woodworker a question related to computer science.

Priority of the "right" answer will most likely be segregated by age and mental condition; Children below a certain age will likely be ignored on the answering side, while info from mentally fit older people will likely be prioritized (because years of practical and theoretical experience). The same goes for people with dementia, narcisism or other mental disorders and diseases

In any case, such a system would also need an "idiot filter" based on already existing evidence and known scientific facts, so you don't get religious zealots, flatearthers, creationists, inbred rednecks, and OP contaminating the global net with bullshit...

While I think the tool could be useful to an extent, it wouldn't be infallible. This is a case of the fallacy argumentum ad populum. The majority response is not always the correct one. For an example, see this list of common misconceptions: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_common_misconceptions

Again, not trying to rain on your parade, but while it may be a useful tool in a toolbox full of different tools, it has the potential to be disasterous if followed religiously and used as a replacement for independant research and critical thinking.

TLDR = I think drive has files on it, PC says there's no file system and it's totally empty... What do?

So here's the thing. I have more drive space than I need and just realized there's a 2tb HDD seemingly unused just chillaxing in my system.

But cynical me is cynical... Did I fill it with cool shit, it's fucked out on me, and I was just too high to realize?
Or did I never set this drive up properly, and its currently just empty space?

I am thinking it's the first option... And some strange shit has gone down... Because Disk Manager doesn't seem to identify any file system on the partition at all, although it does say the partition is healthy...

Please oh wise sages of the interwebs... Take a look at the picture and tell me if disk 5 makes any sense to you, because I don't get it...

It makes perfect sense if the partition was created but never formatted or it's formatted in a way that Windows doesn't recognize, like a Linux hard drive. It could also be that the drive has an NTFS partition on it but the drive is too fucked up to correctly read it. I would expect to see warnings about that on an internal drive though.

It could simply be a partition that's neither FAT or NTFS. Linux and Mac filesystems usually pop up in this manner.
Try booting it up with a linux live cd/usb and see if anything pops up on the HDD. Linux (and boot cds like Hiren's or UBCD) might also be able to help you figure out the original filesystem, so that you can try to recover the entire drive. (if that fails, a file recovery might still be possible)

As mentioned, it might also be a case of a corrupted filesystem, but usually these pop up as "RAW" in Disk Management, especially if they used to be FAT32 or NTFS

  1. You need to know what metrics the target site is looking to boost...
  2. You need to know the conditions of the given metric (what constitutes a "page view", a "share" or a "like"? it's not always obvious)
  3. You need to have some sense of how the site communicates back to its host server.

If you just need to boost page views, it's really easy. In c# you just send web requests to the site, optionally along with a valid user agent string.

To boost likes on social media, you'll need to exploit the like buttons, and bot from a distributed network with differing internet IPs

Albeit not very fast or effective, a good start would be to try to make a "virtual browser" or a "hands off" browser, where the user cannot see the page and UI... instead you perform any needed user actions by parsing the HTML, CSS, scripts etc and access the functions programatically. Get everything you can in there, including cookie and javascript support. You can use page IDs (eg. div id="bla") and classes to help guide your bot to the right buttons.
Not only do you have a good opportunity, testbed and utility to poke around web code (your bot + the IDE debugger + F12 in browser), but you'll have a good basis for improving your bot later.

I have previously used that approach for automating page navigation, admin tasks or adding website functions outside my control to a program's UI. As long as you have no captchas or other anti-bot measures, your program will essentially be indistiguishable from a normal user (barring if you spam a site or have your bot boost ratings from one place only)

To get started, simply create a website with your favourite CMS or forum system... then try to automate a task on the front page. Later on, try to have your program log itself into the admin section (or a user) and do maintenance tasks by filling the right info into the cookies, forms and JS functions.
