Apple just stopped supporting my Macbook with OSX Sierra. So that means from now on Apple will not let me download the newest sleekest version of their Operating System. I don't want to sell it because well it wont sell for enough to justify all the money I put into it.

So I want to turn it into a Linux machine, down the line; with my SSD and 16gb of RAM it should be decent. Ill probably keep OS X on a very small partiton, just because. Im wondering what Linux distro I should use, I've played around with Ubuntu before and Fedora. But Im thinking about Arch and maybe Kaili.

Thougts,suggestions,experiences?

gnome 3 interesting. Used to be my favorite with mandrake. Then it wasn't and others complained when it changed. Whatever, back when. So have used KDE for most systems if offered. Plugins? Do you mean dependencies?

Gnome Shell uses extensions like a web browser. extensions.gnome.org hosts them, and you install them from your browser (though distros usually keep a few really common ones in the package manager).

Most people who use Gnome use at least one extension that gives them a regular task bar. The most powerful ones are "Dash To Dock" and "Dash to Panel". Vanilla Gnome shell keeps its "Dash" taskbar in overview mode, to save real estate, and these move it out into the regular workspace.

My favorite extension is Shelltile, which gives you some pretty flexible window tiling options, and even groups tile layers in overview.

Mainly to catch windows 10 telemetry and auto updating,

I'm looking for a nice firewall that asks me allow/block before an outgoing or incoming connection is made.

The only ones Ive used in the past were:
  • Zone Alarm - it was decent and I may try it out again to see how it's changed in six years
  • GlassWire Free - This one is out of the question, as the free version doesnt block anything until AFTER the fact, and you have to manually go and block it instead of on-demand.

It's not uncommon to use a dozen connections to load a web page. There might be a use case, but in general asking about every new connection is a terrible idea. And protip: if you don't trust the built in firewall because you don't trust Windows, stop using Windows.

You can turn these off. Just poke around a bit. But I would recommend outpost firewall free. Just turn off windows firewall and you can control what happens

Turn off 'alerts' after you get to know it for a while, after you know know what things look like.
Your network, computer, will have constant connections, random or otherwise that your router
will drop anyway. Your router will drop connections that you or a program on your computer
did not initiate.

Zone alarm is lame. Over emphasized as a firewall. Built in windows firewall is better. Updates would screw an good install up. It would have every random connection, as a threat. After soo many random alerts, a popup "get the paid version, "for piece of mind" would appear.

As person says, trust what you have. I am Leary about how MS win 10 says it collects information.
I just use win 7 pro and a trusted linux distribution.

Have SSD's prices started to level off, or should I still wait to buy one?
With the way flash drives got so cheap in the last 4 years, I'm willing to be patient in order to get a better value for a large capacity SSD.

What do you think? I'm not one to frequently upgrade parts, so I'd be buying a large one and don't want to end up regretting it and wishing I'd waited.

ehh, I have seen what should have been unusable hard drives, let alone computers, get by.

I do though have a drive that had recently showed like 2000 failed sectors in a minute or two while
attempting to zero it out. It's gone, plain and simple, noted in mere seconds.

There are though times where you think a HD is broken, as well external media, but it's all
stable, just needs a little bit of cohesion to get it back working. May loose data.

I have my favorite USB drives that do this quite a bit. It's fun geting them to work
again.

>And dont forget to disable the following for SSD Life
Or don't don't forget. It isn't not an unbig deal.

Although the SSD I've had for years and only eaten 3% into its lifespan was an MLC drive and probably has a lot more write cycles overall than the triple level 3d NAND flash.

But seriously don't disable hibernate and shit unless you need the space. Just set your computer to sleep instead of hibernate. Hibernate it yourself if you want to.

>System Restore - life and performance

As someone who almost never has system restore enabled, I would literally never recommend not to have system restore enabled. The people who run with system restore off don't need to be told lol.

I want to know how to harvest character animations and backgrounds from an existing cartoon to eventually make a parody cartoon of the same subject, similarly to what cartoon network did when making their Space Ghost parody spinoffs.

You can mask out the background, but it's of very limited use for compositing. Then as now, the only way to get anything of quality is to rotoscope animations. This is tedious, but doesn't require talent.

Unless you know programming (hint moviepy, opencv) you might try to use image stabilization, cropping and or masking, stabilizing again un-stabilizing afterward etc... And a lot of trail and error.
You"d need adobe premiere or a similar tool though. I am not aware of free software that would be able to do it.

For best results own proper tools and know programming.
Of course if all else fails you can also do frame-by frame with a lasso tool.

Realistically though you might just trace the characters to have them in an animateable vector format and do your own animations.

  1. Will my Asus Z170 Pro Gaming/Aura mobo boot from an NVMe M.2-PCIe 3.0 SSD? NVMe isn't even referenced anywhere in the manual, so I don't have a good feeling about it.

2. Is it really that likely that I'll have to clock my 3000MHz DDR4 down to auto/2133MHz for it to play nice with NVMe, as I've read is sometimes the case?

3. If booting from an NVMe drive isn't possible, are AHCI M.2-PCIe or AHCI M.2-SATA cards worth the expense, or should I just get a 1.8"/2.5" AHCI SATA SSD?

4. Oh, and Windows 10 does have decent native NVMe drivers now, right?

5. Lastly, is migrating my Win10 install from HDD to SDD just a simple matter of creating a partition table on the SDD and cloning the partition over from the HDD?

Sorry for the fuckload of questions.

  1. Ask Asus Tech support. Don't ask us to google something for you
  2. I dont' know, that might be a thing.
  3. the speed gains from any M.2 drive are overrated unless you're trying to load very large files. If you're working on a film editing project, they're great as a scratch disk for quickly scrubbing through a timeline with zero load times. Otherwise, you're really not going to see a substantial upgrade in terms of boot times and overall system responsiveness versus a conventional SSD
  4. Yes
  5. Yes. Samsung typically includes a cloning utility with their SSDs that will accomplish this.

The thing is some NVME sticks are getting to be very good value.
https://www.amazon.com/Intel-600p-SSDPEKKW512G7X1-Reseller-Single/dp/B01JSJA65C/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1489008388&sr=8-2&keywords=ssd+600p

They don't actually have the write performance of a high speed NVME SSD. I do video work but nothing high res or particularly big projects so it's been great for me.

That's only 40 bucks or so more than a comparable sata SSD, and in the M.2 space the price difference is less than that.

I might have dipped down to a regular style SSD for a terabyte at a more reasonable price, but I got a big fat hard drive instead.

If OP couldn't boot from the NVME stick I could help set up a boot partition on your other drive. You can do it from the recovery option but it's finnicky.

  1. Don't read sensationalist crap
  2. Cybernetics and Trans-humanism are completely different things.
  • Cybernetics is just a mathematical tool to reason about human / machine interactions in rigorous way.
  • Transhumanism is a crackpot ideology of people that wants to archive eternal life through a technological process (for themselves in their lifetime)
3. AI research actually is a well established field and the theory about handling agents safely is well debated stuff inside computer science departments.

Someone shoulder surfing and viewing your password isn't particularly common as I understand it, neither is the inside attacker example of the IRS employee that common.

The post didn't outline some of the increasingly common ways of being exploited for money that one might be exposed to.

Great to hear your learning to code. Code is the win and the starting point of all hackers!

You almost definitely a victim of hacking.
https://haveibeenpwned.com/
Bet you've been pwned.

Defending against hacking is an ethereal goal. Who are you defending against? Nation states, script kiddies or just generally want good security...?

Start by updating all the things all the time including your routers, phone and printers. Don't use any internet of shit. From there the tinfoil intensifies...

Hacking is just making do things that they are not supposed to do. It's a way of thinking more than anything else. Do not get trapped by the preconceptions forced upon you; think of your goals and think about all and anyway to get there. The original hackers were just modding the fuck out of there systems to make them do crazy things. GNU/Linux was conceived out of hacking culture. Speaking of which learn unix especially GNU/Linux based systems.

But then it start to pop up again, and again. And Now I'm worried. I figured this would just be some basic malware but I can't find any trace of it in my program files or with a search. Googling did reveal a few people talking about how it can spread to USB drives, so that's got me afraid.

So I've got three questions and I'm really, really hoping one of you can help alleviate my paranoia. I've got a D&D campaign to run on line tomorrow and I really don't need this shit fucking up my computer.

So I've got three questions that I haven't been able to get a clear/recent answer for:

  1. What is this, and how worried should I be?
  2. How Do I find it and kill it on my system? Do I need to do a system restore or download a specific removal tool?
  3. How fucked are my External hard drives? I've got over 2 terabytes of stuff I literally can't replace, I'm freaking out

Thanks in advance
I unplugged my External hard drives, but I'm afraid I wasn't quick en

Run a virus scan on your external drives, your whole computer. I assume nothing was altered. Even if so to spread to external drives is not the initial mission of windows viruses in general, it is to infect the host system and often to propagate to other computers by means of other computers and their users vulnerabilities, e-mail, sharing files online. Say a chain e-mail was called, funnycat.jpg.msi funnycat.jpg.exe, instant virus. But most email services would catch this when scanning it, by a person if they downloaded say pornography from an unknown site, which what isn't, and called hotvid.mpg.exe, or.msi, and especially if vid is say 120kb, instant virus. I think you just visited a site where it tried to infect your computer but your anti-virus picked it up without any issue. VBS:Malware.gen isn't uncommon of a name that an anti-virus will call it by it's action to infect, often it is simply a false positive.

I see these enough and basically it may be trying to alter something but in your case likely nothing was altered
at all. You will see these in browser, email caches often enough if you look. Opera sounds like the browser and benign so I don't see what is going on ig you use Opera, but using a limited account, always, not an administrator
account to browse, email, there should be no issues. Except if one downloads a virus and executes it.

Like a movie that is movie.mpg.msi movie.avi.exe, and is like merely 120kb, where it should be more like
750MB, instant virus. In all nothing was altered, just blocked from trying to do whatever it was trying to
accomplish. External drives aren't much targeted, just the host computer and to propagate to others
computers through email, social media, etc.

Like if a social media or site wants one to download 'their' 'downloader' or 'media player' be leery.

That's a connection for the Opera web browser... It's a false positive. I really wouldn't recommend Avast, just use uBlock Origin with anti-malware filterlists. the only reason I could see for using an antivirus nowadays is if you install software regularly, e.g, cracked games. But you won't even get malware from those most of the time if you get them from decent sources like private trackers.

What are you on about?
>Millions of other folks!!!
Do millions of people even use Opera anymore?

Not only is it leaking uninitialised memory, reminiscent of heartbleed, but they're doing it in HTML replies, meaning that your shit is probably cached all over the place. Good job CIA!

Here's Cloudflares report, but it very much downplays the impact. Basically if you visit any of cloudflares customers that you consider important, or if you recycle passwords, you should probably change them. To give you an idea, i've attached an image of sites which proudly claim to use cloudflare. I didn't want to make an account to expand the list (the site uses clodflare...)

You're not secure, all that shit you put online or have taken and put online by others has never been secure. How is this even thread worthy?

Hell, after a certain group of data breaches, my entirety of information including SSN was leaked because of my employer. Then again, when 100k people have their information dumped, only a handful get identity fraud/theft. Who even cares anymore. If people steal your shit, there isn't debtors prison and credit is a scam anyways.

I don't give a fuck, neither should you. Stop worrying.

If the first thing you think about is your government identity, you are way behind. Personal information is increasingly weaponized and it only takes a handful of Bulgarians to initiate a blackmail campaign a la Ashley Madison. I'm glad you don't have anything to hide though.

Even employers run a credit check on applicants. Credit cards are a scam, your credit rating is actually something to care about these days.

Because? Security measures. Info is sold by the tend hundreds, thousands.
For mere dollars for each CC info. If out of say a hundred one buys if they can
get each for a dollar and can get a few thousand out of 3, 5, scam methods they
are doing pretty well in a criminal aspect. Those who sell the info do far better.

An associate got all his cards blocked everywhere he went on day, turns oput his banking system blocked the cards, they were being used, (trying to be) here and there, Mexico was the ultimate and initial flag. Who cares right?
