Keep anything you wan to save. Pics, etc. The rest would be mostly irrelevant as it would be overwritten. Like system files. Basic native to windows 'program files.'

Say users folder as person says appdata 'may' contain info one would want to save. Bookmarks, firefox etc. May be a pain in the rear to to upgrade with windows, the setting etc, but most programs would likely roll with an upgrade like from 7 to 10 if folder is overwritten, it would not harm overwriting these as they are recreated when deleted, but may not necessarily work
correctly replacing them after an upgrade.

As for app data say publishing software0, whatever may keep most data in it's own location, say in program files folder. You can though save certain programs files settings and contents with
native? Utilities for upgrading.

Just depends on what kind of upgrade one is trying to do.

If installing as an upgrade or in place upgrade, and not a clean install windows would create a file called windows.old , by default. As person said that would allow one to 'hopefully' revert back to it's former state if the upgrade fails. The windows.old file will help this happen. As stated when one is comfortable with the upgrade, if a few days weeks things seems well it is perfectly
safe to delete windows.old .

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

Rainmeter is fucking stupid.

Rainmeter is pretentious bullshit tbh. You don't care about your RAM usage. You don't even care about how cold it is outside.

Can burn UBCD to cd, boot into. When booting computer it should say boot options, esc f12 f2 whatever. hen in boot options select cd or dvd drive with you burned UDCD. There would be HDD/disk wiping/ select active killdisk.

Hopefully this will start correctly. Ok, do know the size of the drive you intend to wipe beforehand. Select correct one say my storage drive 1s 300 gigs I would selct that if I wanted to wipe it

As my Cdrive is 35 gigs, I would not want to erase my windows or linux 12 gigs, just know what you are wiping.

This will zero your selected drive to zeros 0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000
Unreadable, basically no method will recover any data on the selected drive you have zeroed out.

Hey guys, I'm interested in buy an Asus Chromebook to install Ubuntu on using crouton.

The specs are:
>Rockchip Quadcore 1.8 GHz Processor
>16 GB Solid-State Drive

I have no use for ChromeOS, once I install Ubunutu can I wipe the ChromeOS partition? I need an inexpensive laptop with this specs. I was also considering an ASUS Transformer with similar specs but running Windows 10. I could just use VirtualBox for linux. Anyone have experience with crouton and chrombooks?

  1. That's overpriced. Try Gearbest.

  3. That thing is built like garbage. It will probably die when you break the untempered glass, but if you have a problem that's covered by the warranty, it's very likely that you will not pay to ship your brick to China.

I decided to start building a new PC. I've already acquired the case and the power supply. I'll probably buy the HDD or SSHD (cheaper than SSD) and the disk drive next. But I'm wondering about the new chipsets coming out this year. AMD is coming out with Ryzen and Intel is coming out with Kaby Lake.

I know AMD chips run significantly cheaper than Intel for the amount of hertz per dollar and Intel chips have a more advanced architecture for a higher price. Both have their fanboys. I'm thinking that if I wait I could either pick up a new AMD chip and get killer performance or I could get the current gen Intel chips after a price cut once their new chips come out.

I want to know your opinion and I also want to know if you guys know if any new mobos are coming out.

Intel just revealed 10nm Cannon Lake said to be in the stores in the 3rd quarter this year. So it might be worth the wait.
Sky Lake and Kaby Lake both get a mere 10% and 5% improvement respectively starting from Broadwell, so it should be worth the wait if you already have any 14nm cpu.

Is there anything that watches javascript calls to see if any given site is pulling a bunch of information that may be used for fingerprinting? And if it crosses a certain threshold it sends up a warning.

So maybe if they're just checking for mobile and my resolution, that's ok. But then if it wants to know if I'm mobile, my resolution, my hardware, my battery, my plugins, my gyroscope, etc... I get a warning.

Is that even feasible, or am I not understanding how fingerprinting works?

I already have 3rd party scripts blocked with uMatrix. Would that do the same thing? I've left 1st party script running globally, to avoid having dealing with tweaking every single site, but maybe I should just be more selective. I figured blocking 3rd party scripts by default would at least slow down the biggest data collectors.

In other news, Firefox is integrating an anti-fingerprinting technique from torbrowser, to stop people from fingerprinting by checking for fonts: http://news.thewindowsclub.com/firefox-52-font-fingerprinting-protection-87818/
