>Computers are understandable because you can focus on what is happening at one level of the hierarchy without worrying about the details of what goes on at the lower levels.
This is confusing me a bit. Don't you have to worry about every part and especially the details?

Actually rereading the sentence I think I understand more now, it's like human hierarchy. Example, a president doesn't need to worry what average Joe on the streets had said about the president, that's what the surveillance is for. But still, in order to be in total control, the user (the pres in this case) has to know everything about the functioning system.

In 'real life' (as opposed to I.T. theory) every 'organic' event which takes place on God's creation, such as those in one's society has its own effect within its own existential world.

I.E...."Mankind is made in the image of God." or "Man is God writ small."

Surveillance is not for any noble purpose. Perhaps 'in theory' but usually not in practice. Especially in ultra-capitalist Amerikkka.

The President and the establishment and the ruling class think they are 'high' or that they are 'higher' than others (this is human lust and passion) but in truth we all bleed the same in the presence of God.

So on the street level, events which take place have their due significance, no matter what air of arrogance a politician carries and no matter all the catty comments one can make about it, military or not.

It is "We the People" and not "We the Military-Industrial Complex". They are the usurpers and detractors from the 'source code', we are the people of the United States who defeated Germany and Japan, dropped atomic bombs of facists, feed and house the hungry and poor and afflicted of the world, stopped the mouths of tyrants, and landed a human being on the moon. All in the name of liberty and in the name of God and what is right.

i.e.. copy & paste

you only have to copy a URL, and paste the URL for the URL to automatically display an entire webpage

it is like reading blueprints...if you roll out all of the blueprints of an OS, you can focus in on different parts of the OS to see what is going on at a specific part of the OS....and then you can, from there intuit what will take place in the higher or lower levels of the 'OS hierarchy'

API - integral control structure of windows operating system organization to determine how the windows OS functions...one of the 'internal components under the hood', such as a hood on a car contains internal components

I.E.....focusing in on windows API or
.....focusing in on an open source kernel
.....focusing in on GUI display and programming layouts for display

if you look at some part of a windows OSI, for instance, by viewing this part of the hierarchical structure of the (already-programmed) OS software, to be run on a physical machine (hardware), you can see that it fits in with the entirety of the software hierarchy for the whole OS...and thus by looking at a single point in the hierarchy you can discern things about the rest of the hierarchy because there is already a 'standardized' conception of how everything is supposed to function to make the whole OS function appropriately

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.

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.)

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.

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.

Longshot:
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.

Depends on your OS and the desktop environment kernel of what is supported. Update your kernel if you haven't or if one is available.

(Updating kernel may break things. But all in all it's

As far as old driver, no big deal. I believe deb releases are
every 6 months? The driver people did not catch up.

Sometimes, older version are better for an established system, until
the developers catch up,

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.
