Hey, odd question. I'm running windows seven still, and a little bit ago something weird happened to all my media files. It used to be that when I explored my files in a window set to "group by type" it would segregate all the media files into their specific categories (such as .mp3, .avi, .webm, etc.) But now in both my desktop HD and my external HDs, all the files in the same folder are just grouped together into one mass collection off all media files. It's only doing this for things that I've associated with VLC media player. All my image files are still categorized separates into .gif .png etc.

Why did this happen? Is this just my life now or is there a way to correct this? I can't figure out how to phrase this question in a way that returns useful google results

Sometimes Windows Explorer will decide that files should be organized a certain way. Too many MP3s? Now it's a media folder organized by artist because fuck you that's why. You can force it to have whatever columns you want, but you can also look that up for yourself.

Hey I have a small issue. I pulled some old word files off my old laptop, it crashes when you move the mouse. Complete and total freeze. Not even any error message. Anyway, I was VERY lucky to even manage to get the files off and onto a flash, I haven't been able to replicate that event.

My problem is this, I have a newer laptop now, windows 10. I went to open my old word files to work on my stories and my retard computer is telling me now I have to sign into some bullshit faggy microsoft account? Or if not that then I have to enter my product key???? What the fuck???? The laptop was a gift???? I have no fucking product key???????? If there's no fix for this gay ass faggot shit, I'm going to use someone else's laptop and convert these from gay ass "word" files to straight up dope as fuck based and alpha Notepad files. Fuck this gay ass "word" shit.

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

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.

I remember the days of collecting all the old junk computers and fixing them up. I had a room full of computers. All almost useless. Sure I spread my data amongst them. Some were used for storing movies and what not. Some for old games. Real old games. But other than that I could only do basic stuff. But it is an important learning phase and the best way to learn to handle the parts and trouble shoot before spending lots of money. Lol there was one computer that would freeze up, and I would kick it and it would start to work again. Now I have several PCs and a visualization host.

What sort of small hacks have you thrown together to solve small problems?

> have a script that kills all my torrents when the VPN goes down. It just watches tun0 and then runs a killall on a couple programs when that dies.
> made some small modifications to screenkeys that says what some hotkeys do for recording some videos. So now it says "Ctrl-Z (Undo)" instead of just "Ctrl-Z".

I think we all throw together artless solutions like this, and I was just wondering what sorts of things other people get up to.

Not really, killswitches stop all internet traffic if/when the VPN connection is broken to prevent your system from falling back to the regular connection and exposing your IP. When the VPN automatically reconnects, the killswitch turns off and allows traffic again so anything that was running continues to run and needs no interaction from you.

Oh. In that case my usecase is a bit different.

I just pop off vpn sometimes to reduce lag, for reasons. But I'm a dumbass and sometimes forget I have a torrent client running in the background. I just don't want to catch a strike in the time between when I do something stupid and when I realize I did something stupid. So I just leave a small script running, to help me not fuck up.

I wouldn't want to block non-VPN traffic on a drop because it'd probably just get in the way when I do it intentionally.

Does the client let you pick which adapter to use? Tixati does and you can pick the VPN client. If it disconnects your torrents all stop.

Building my own hyper-visor visualization host from scratch using Arch Linux and KVM. Currently have Windows 10 installed on an Msata card that is a pcie sata card being passed through to the container along with a 1080 ti gpu and a usb 3.0 card. I will make my host os clean and base it like qubes os and make remove it's network capability. I will have an openwrt server with the NIC passed through to it and use it to distribute internet amongst my VMs and also make my host update over one of those servers as-well since it doesn't have LAN. I will have multiple template VMs for different linux distros and then different snapshots for different purposes all using libvirt sandbox to only share the x session for the requested application instead of the entire Desktop Environment. All this and it will be a multi user host instead of a single user like qubes. A super computer for the family. Managing all vpns, cell phones, back ups and and anything else your family needs. Gaming, surveillance, weather, homework etc. I want virtual android and IOS nodes that your phone will interact with over 4G if your signal is adequate. So not quite a small every day hack, but a bunch of medium sized projects crammed into my life's dream. A super computer in every home.

What version of windows? Like does it have software that originally came with the computer.

Do a new clean install with an untouched windows. I have found Dell,
etc, help programs, maintaince programs, driver updaters, from the
manufacturer makes windows fail. As well, basic manufacturer
programs screw things up. If yes, find a clean copy of win7 pro
and install that. Laptop, get specific drivers from MS optional
updates. They should be the first optional updates, monitor etc.

The most sane distro is NixOS or GuixSD if you want absolute minimalism in terms of there's just one text file you have to edit, and it contains your entire system configuration. To understand it go on Google Scholar and look up NixOS or Guix papers esp the orig functional package management paper.

You can also use competing schedulers for the linux kernel if interested

And if you want really experimental minimalism then try the following
>Install Guix package manager
>Use NetBSD rumpkernels

This is about as experimental as you can currently get with a working amateur system to do crazy shit you never thought was possible.

You can, it just takes some effort, spend 10 minutes looking for auctions and buy it nows. I got one 2 years ago for that amount 256GB/8GB 13 inch, core duo (don't complain, if all you're doing is the stuff OP listed)
Granted it had one rubber foot missing and no power supply. Not a big deal.

There are no 13 inch MBPs or Macbooks with Core Duos. Whatever you bought, you got taken. 350+50 is 33% more than you said and 100% more than I paid for my gently used T430.

Search "proxy lists: samair.ru that should bring up lists of sites. Try to search port 443, ssl, anonymous or elite proxies. SSL if the site uses ssl. Do "proxy test" to see if your IP is forwarded. If you get lucky with port:443 you can find proxies that are like encrypted, https, not just a request for a ssl site, but a proxy that is encrypted between you and the proxy you found. Socks proxies are good. If you pick proxies from like the middle east, if you find good ones they would last longer because nobody really wants to touch them. Transparent proxies may forward you IP on default port but port :443 may have client to host encryption that is encrypted but does not forward your Ip address. Forget what type of proxies did this by default atm. Using online proxy checkers, some, likely most harvest other peoples efforts finding a working proxy and
sell them or post them to promote their 'proxy list services.' Find a decent proxy switcher program to check proxies on your own. Ultimately find security type sites to see if the proxy
you have is SSL aware if you are visiting https sites, anf that it does not forward you real IP address. I crammed everything together but it's pretty basic. SSL proxies generally, just
request HTTPS sites route them to you without forwarding your IP address to the remote site, anonymous proxies may request SSL sites, I forget, but will not forward your IP. But may keep logs. Transparent proxies likely will forward you IP, know your own IP before you venture.

Eh, just stuff from the past. There are google proxies all over the place, why? I don't know.

Hope this kinda makes sense to anybody interested. It's late here so I just threw this together.
