Android tablet audio out problems + 2 other small ?'s while I'm here by JennySenkinchire.mov - Sat, 04 Feb 2017 20:32:13 EST ID:/FoMKqsY No.120530 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

I've tried turning it off and on again but that didn't help ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
For some reason when I woke up this afternoon, my tablet's out sound is kinda pretty fucked. One side/channel is messed up; when I go watch some Texan bassin' or science news short video, the main/vocal channel(/s?) Is pretty corrupted/corroded and at half volume but the transition & sound effects' side of things is just fine. I tested VLC too and it seems to be a tablet-wide issue where one side/channel is super fucky, but the little back speaker is just fine as far as little tablet back speakers go. I'm on a Nextbook NX785QC8G running 4.4.2.

small question #1: anyone know what extension Android Chrome bookmarks are so I can search for em, copy and send them to my protonmail for backup & universal access?

small question #2: can I get some recommendations for some good & hassle-free online storage/backup? Lookin' for 20-30GB range.

Thanks for any tips and advice!

This is where your bookmarks are on Android. This result was from a 5 second google search.
Bookmark Import Tool is also an app for Android that you can use to import bookmarks.
You can't even use google and call other people clueless.

But the thing is, Chrome is based on your Google acc everywhere. Your bookmarks should be synced to your google account. So anywhere you want to use your bookmarks, you just have to install Chrome on any device and you have them. I don't understand why do you want to back it up. It's stored on your google account. Anywhere you have internet access and a way to install chrome on any device, you will have your bookmarks. These are your means to back them up anyway though.

omfg... if it really was that fucking simple to just find it through file explorer, then I wouldn't have ever had to know that such a shitsnot like you even existed. I. NEED. TO. KNOW. THE. EXTENSION. TO. SEARCH. FOR. IT! How is simple english so hard to understand.

And what's so wrong with preferring a secure email service and digging the reason & story of it's creation. Maybe I like a clean & ad-free layout that isn't forcedly/secretly linked to some stupid social media bullshit ad/data corp. What's so wrong with wanting a email address from a new service so that I can use my own damn name without having to purposely mispell it with a bunch of silly numbers in it to be valid or have it look like stupid emo middle school sped drama crap with three x's in it like yours does.

How fucking dense you are to not plainly see that I just DON'T want to have to use Google everywhere, or have to force friends and family to install Chrome just so I can look up a bookmark. If you just don't know the extension, then go back to your soap operas, simple as that.

How much liability do you think companies should face when they get hacked and lose millions of people's data? And a related question: if a software vendor sold software that had flaws that allowed the breach to happen, do you think they should share that liability?

Today when a company loses all your information, they get a slap on the wrist. I think the idea is that you don't want to punish companies for disclosure/transparency, so you keep the penalties low. But the low penalties seem to encourage companies to skimp on security. What do you think is the right balance?

I work at a company that had a massive breach, they were really open with disclosure, but really haven't tightened up IT and security in the wake of the attack. Something seems off to me.

tangent question here

how responsible/liable are the IT security people after a breach? (my family wants me to get into IT security, but I don't want to for the reasons below)

because I figure a sophisticated enough and skilled enough hacker can always get through. I mean look at google and major banks (which probably spend hundreds of millions on security every year). your mom and pop's shop or mcbusiness isn't going to keep out determined elite black hats.

Came here for the zero-g anime boobs.

Onto your questions, nobody skimps on security on purpose it's just that the more complex a system gets the more vulnerabilities there will be.
And web sites are pretty much the same level of complexity overall, it's just that your mom&pop will rely on third party code to archive that complexity while the fortune 500 will do may things from scratch.
In the end it's up to the developers to make sure security requirements are met, and a IT security guy is just a developer that checks code of lesser skilled developers because his labor is more expensive.

Install iThemes Security. It gives you the option to change the login slug and prevent access to the default ones (wp-admin and wp-login.php), plus a ton of other useful features.

You can also do this yourself by hooking template_redirect (or some higher-priority action, but this one usually works) and overriding WordPress's default behavior for those URLs.

>Seems like a security flaw to me!
Yep. WordPress isn't hard to secure, but out of the box it's weak as hell.

If you can figure that out, then you can start to spoof it being off, rather than having to actually disable your ad blocker.

What I mean is, there's these pages that will totally disable their content when they detect that you have an ad blocker. So its not a simple html block I can delete and access the content.

One way is that in the ad javacript they set a value like;
var notBlocked = true;

And then they test if notBlocked is true, and if it's not, then they don't display the content. From what I understand there are various ways, and there's not a generic way for every site.

It is always another javascript that searches the DOM of the page for ads, it's essentially the same technique adblockers use to detect them.

This works because the adblocker isn't configured most of the time to block the anti-adblock scripts themselves. A special anti-anti adblock is unnecessary if the adblocker has a rule to block the anti-adblock itself.

The difference though is that anti-adblock scripts are often served from the webhost of the site itself rather than a third party which makes it harder to find them.

Anti-adblock killer by reek isn't maintained properly so it doesn't work for any current anti-adblock scripts.

50K is a common value for potentiometers. So that's what it probably is. The letter can depend on the manufacturer.
I'm unaware of any convention, other properties that matter are linear/logarithmic and the tolerance of the total resistance (usually 10% or 20%).

Did rainmeter morph into something else?
The site is down and has been for 400 days according to isitdown.

Basically the network plugin that shows my IP and data u/d uses a website to fetch the IP data. I'm wondering if there is a way to avoid using a website?
The format is that it wants a URL. So I figure a local html could work, but I'm noob as fuck on coding. How do I get my IP resolved with HTML?
Any ideas?

And last resort, concede the failure and use a site to ping for the IP. What's a good non cancer site to use for that purpose?
Something official like EFF.org or something? Basically the most ethical, or one you'd like to support

Because traffic isn't free.
Consumer ISPs also get charged by datacenter ISPs for backbone access unless they provide their own infrastructure, which isn't the case in most cases.
datacenter ISPs get charged by Carrier ISPs operating the fiberoptic networks between datacenters.

That said, this isn't the whole story, mobile ISPs still are using an old business model where they sell flatrates as a premium model and local monopolies with home cable providers make things worse.

$ 5,000

When do you guys think there will be an affordable version of 8K UHD displays available? IIRC the time it took for UHD to become affordable was something in the range of ~1.5 years.
The panel they are using is pretty much the non-plus ultra in regards to color gamut and dynamic range (for IPS).
I hope some other manufacturer would pick up the panel and sell it at a quarter of this price or Dell making a single connection "light" version of this display.
I wouldn't really care about perceptually unnoticeable lossy data compression in the interface if it means it's affordable.

I think this largely depends on the GUI elements and if they are scale-able.
I can't imagine you've ever had problems with a smartphone or a tablet. OK you might argue that these aren't used for extended periods too.

That said I haven't upgraded my desktop in years and using a crappy 24" FHD monitor which is far harder to concentrate on than my 13" laptop with a QHD+ screen.

The real joy of these high resolution monitors is that fonts aren't distorted by cleartype any more, with consistent gaps between letters and the typeset is displayed the way it was intended by the font designer, not by some algorithm.
I know you can turn font hinting off, but for low resolution displays below 200dpi it only makes things worse.

It's also up to the GUI developers since it's ridiculous that icons are normally originally drawn in a vector based program yet exported as a bitmap.
