Tethering from hotel wi-fi is using data plan on two 2/3 phones by ShitSinningfurk.dun - Sun, 30 Oct 2016 12:36:05 EST ID:Bw2TOsl/ No.120020 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

My family of 3 is currently living in a hotel. We use LG G2 running Android 5.0.2 and our carrier is AT&T. We have a shitty 8GB data plan but have access to the hotel's wi-fi and 2 different desktop computers in here. When I tether my phone I don't use up any of the data plan.

I know this because I downloaded a 15GB game (over fucking wi-fi) and the carrier says I've used 200MB. When the other two phones are tethered to the hotel wi-fi they still use the data on our plan. I've checked and rechecked their phone settings, everything is set up exactly the same as mine aside from USB debugging, but I don't think that's relevant. Any ideas?

It's an LG G4.

Try this though, if wanted. Clear you firefox or whatever browser cache and return to the site, bookmak it to go straight there. I have found interesting .exe files that were listed as straight up viruses in the browsers cache. Being in cache is not an issue, if it actually gets executed is though is another. I never actually tried to run these from cache, (sounds fun to try.) My bet if browsing under an admin account these could possibly simply execute themselves. I could be wrong but under certain circumstances could possibly do so I would assume.

I have good hardware, fast computer, so then why is it then when I startup my computer, I'm sitting there looking at the desktop icons slowly pop in from the default white square? That's not right.

I've defragged, ccleaner, let's assume I don't have any malware running, so how do I fix?

what version of windows are you running? What kind of programs do you have running on startup? Do you have OS on HDD or SSD? Do you prefer mozzarella or cheddar in a grilled sandwich?

I'm assuming it's startup programs and the OS is on HDD and you're the kind of slimy bastard that'd prefer cheddar. Check those things, also see if your mobo will do fast boot.

Man if you have a HDD with the windows partition installed there, it is ALWAYS going to lag on bootup, in opening applications, and just about anything and everything that requires disk access, no matter your specs.
I bought a quad core 2.7ghz +8gb RAM laptop last year and performance in daily use sucked until I upgraded to an SSD.

If the computer was bought new and still has the default manufacturers software, help, user experence, call computer manufacturers home apps etc, that would be a very likely issue.

Can go to ad remove programs and see what is installed.

Can go to start, type in msconfig go to 'startup' and see what is there which starts at startup.

Call it overkill but reinstalling windows with a clean windows, not a manufacturers windows
version. Use win7 professional if possible. I does perform better. If win10, don't know what to
say.

You can also get super good deals on old Xeon processors that would still knock your socks off.

If you could get a dual xeon mac pro and upgrade it that stands to be one hell of a bitchin' rig.

Generally though CPU computing performance improvements have just slowed down a lot so when facebook upgrades their datacenters a bunch of $80 super high end CPUs from 2012 get dumped on the market and they're not nearly the joke that a 5 year old processor would have been in 2011

The discount you can get for a fast Xeon doesn't make sense over a comparable i7 once you take into account extra expenses. If you're more into core count and server boards than single threaded performance though, you can get some retardedly cheap CPUs. I'm looking on ebay to edify myself and someone paid $5 per core for a pair of Xeons last month.

so I've inherited my parent's ancient dell inspiron 350s. its really not doing me any good what-so-ever, and i want to get as much use out of it as i can. so far, ive just wiped it clean, and installed YUMI on my external HDD so i can use a decent browser on mint. other than that, i havent installed any of my most used programs, or even changed the wallpaper.

basically, what i want to know is what i should do to get the max use out of this computer. should i be rid of vista, and just run linux on it? should i keep dual booting, so i can play the few games i do play on it? im ignorant to technology this old, ive only owned anything with 7 and up. pls halp.

I would simply install win 7 pro on it to start. This will work correctly. The comp is not ancient in any way.

Ok, right click 'computer,' scroll down. Look, is it x32 or x64bit in vista?.

Let s just assume it has 3 gigs of ram installed and is x64 bit, install 64 bit windows.

no one really knows how cyberwarfare will play out because it's never actually happened (except maybe in simulations in secret DARPA, russian, or chinese labs)

what I'm wondering is what if instead of a total blackout the internet turns into an unreliable network, kind of like utilities in a third world country. some days on, some days off. cuts at random hours of day or night for unknown durations. brownouts and surges all the time.

it wouldn't be unwise of western governments to create redundant networks, separate from and non-reliant on the current internet infrastructure

P.S: I've noticed google on and off a lot lately (the past week or so) and I've wondered if this is related, but I couldn't find anything in the media. it's usually turns off 5 or 10 minutes at the time (not accepting requests according to MS connection diags). it seems to be google.com only, as I can get on google.ca .co.uk .com.au etc.

Even self signed certs should not fail if administrated correctly.
Changes in certificates there should be notice for it's users
to ignore, accept and or add and accept the changes.

Possibility, users computer the time date time zone is incorrect.

DNS issues possible? Malware or other causing redirection.
Expired certificate. If the certificate is correct there should be
a notice that it has expired, but different warnings in different
situations.
-
SSH may say that the certificate has changed, bla bla, and ask do you
want to accept the certificate change. y/n . Email and other services

Like normal certificates it is possible for self signed certificates to expire. If they were offloaded to the trusted root certificate store by the entity who provisioned the workstation (which would prevent the warning from throwing) they simply may have expired.
More likely people just didn't give a shit. It's not like these machines are using certificate pinning anyway.
Also MITM attacks are difficult to pull off if you aren't the NSA. or FEMA.

>Also MITM attacks are difficult to pull off if you aren't the NSA. or FEMA.

Kinda yes and no I assume. If one were able to intercept the initial connection
of a so-called target(s,) clients connection to a remote site. They possibly
could hold that MTM status somewhat indefinitely if wanted. It should fail
eventually, sooner or later, admins or otherwise offering warning
messages.

The most easy example to see I guess is using an SSH connection. If client initially reaches server and accepts certificate/authentication without any interference. The accepted ssh key is stored and should be regarded as trusted. I this deviates it could be explained as many possible causes.

Most likely if initial connection was correct, the outdated server cert, server change, pulled
cets, domain (server) change, would be the cause of warnings of mismatched certs.

It's not possible to reconstruct the original image.
Unlike with some hentai that was purposely scrambled with the blocks still containing the parts of the image, just moved to different locations, and you could puzzle them back together.
Here the blocks just contain a solid color.


However in theory it is possible to extrapolate a plausible image using a feed-forward neural network trained with lots and lots of of nude people, it still won't be the original image though, just something that can pass as a photo to the algorithm. If it will pass the eyeball test depends on how good your neural network was trained.

But since that requires some serious work and this is cutting edge stuff unless you are really motivated and learn to do it yourself it won't be done. Or you could just wait a decade or so when this kind of stuff has become unambiguous.

hey /tech/

i suffer from very bad pure OCD and for a long time feared that I was a pedophile or attracted to, I don't even want to say the word

logically I know that I'm not and I'm certain about that

a while back, I was browsing and came across 'non-nude' sites

i didn't access anything which would straight away be considered black and white illegal

i feel repulsed even thinking about it now, but there's also this fear that it will somehow come back to me any day now, with a knock at the door and offender status to my name

how much should I be worrying about this happening to me, because I'm terrified my life is already over and that it's just a matter of time until it's official

I think people here are misunderstanding what OP is saying. He doesn't have pedophilic urges, what he's experiencing is the vicious cycle of constant intrusive thoughts that come with obsessive compulsive disorder. Everyone has intrusive thoughts about doing horrible things, the problem is people with OCD get stuck in this train of thought and obsess over it to the point where they convince themselves that it's going to happen. All I can suggest is talk to your therapist about it, which I understand is easier said than done, but they're not going to judge you and they'll understand what's going on.

So I intend to buy my first 'smartphone,' but with a singular intention: I want to use it just for looking up the prices of things on ebay that I see in thrift stores, pawn shops, yard sales, and so on, meaning the only feature I care about is a good web browser, or ebay app. I don't care about cameras, games, whatever else people do with their phones, I just want to use the internet away from home from time to time, as cheaply as feasible

Which also means I'm interested in a good prepaid data thing; most of what I've looked at is "unlimited data" for a monthly fee, but I think it might be better to get a definite amount to be used at my leisure, but then I don't know, so I'd also like advice on that

thank you in advance, brothers

Check if you have Metro PCS stores in your area. They have a free (cheap model) phone promotion going, but you'll have to ask if you qualify, because it's meant for people switching from another provider, and since this is your first smartphone they may not give it to you. Basically, you sign up for the $50/month plan and the phone is free, then after the first month, you can change to any other plan you want, even their cheapest plan, which is $30/month.

I got the Samsung Galaxy On5, which should suit your needs fine. It runs Android version 6.0, and offers a stock web browser as well as Google Chrome (and you should be able to download others from Google Play, if you want.) The screen is very cheaply made and I find myself having to clean it occasionally due to excessive fingerprints and smudges.

The only reason you might need a better phone than that is if you plan to open up a lot of browser tabs, which uses your phone's RAM, and if you run of RAM then the browser will crash.

As a first-time buyer, make sure you check the data coverage map (not the phone coverage map) of the provider you choose to be sure you can get data in the areas you actually plan to be using the phone.

Also, be aware that most providers will advertise an "unlimited" data plan, but there's no such thing as actually unlimited mobile data. Most of the time, somewhere in the fine print, they'll specify that they throttle your connection if you exceed a set limit of data per month, and the throttled speeds are usually so slow that you may as well not even have a data connection at all at that point. You can still buy an unlimited plan if you want, and you'll still get way more data than any limited plan, you just need to be conscious of what the limits are on your unlimited plan so that you don't find out too late that you're out of 4G data for the month.

Downloading photos can be data intensive, so visiting eBay a lot will use up quite a bit of data. If it's important for you to never run out of data, I'd recommend you start with a higher end plan, perhaps even unlimited, then learn how to check data usage on the phone you buy. At the end of the first month, you'…

If he downloads the opera android browser he can just disable loading of images to get around quite a bit of data use. Other browsers can probably too, but opera I know can.

there are indeed 2 true unlimited data plans I know of. I live in SoCal so I don't know if they are offered elsewhere but...

For $60 you can get unlimited LTE data no throttling at MetroPCS
For $80 you can get the exact same plan, albeit 4G not true LTE, on T-Mobile prepaid. Both have unlimited everything. nb cos shillin'

I'm looking for a new phone similar to the Moto G2 but with LTE. Stereo speakers, FM radio, and LTE are all I need. Not over 200 dollary doos

I was thinking about cleaning my mouse pad with a toothbrush and some "Petit Marseillais".

I really don't want to fuck this one up. I consider it to be a mousepad worth keeping and I don't want to fuck it up.

Please give me your wise advice.
