Well, the imaginable is reality, even before this. There is a reason countries like yours likely and specifically dis-allows corporate and government from just collecting data of users. I would bet that likley it is illegal, I know it is illegal
in some countries to collect data in such ways.

Reality is, if data is collected and easily accessible, sold, one may end up in
some legal dispute, etc. Some data may be just right there to be accessed.
For a few$$ Depending on it's worth. It could be manipulated in any way,
understand many Americans are dumb as rocks when it comes to
protections. Example, one guy who was pretty clearly innocent was put on death row. Information, 'evidence' if-you-will' was shown to be fabricated, they know who did the crime but since they got somebody it didn't matter.

Jurors said, when asked why the guilty verdict when they understood the man was innocent, people said because the prosecution said to find him guilty.

Not sure where you are but, paranoia is not the people concerned about privacy,
but those who work against it and the possible outcomes.

If you are not an American, you have no clue. I bet your healthcare records are
private as well. This entails peoples browsing history, which can be peoples healthcare and healthcare management. Where was mentioned I beleive the workplace wellness program that trumps team wants to initiate, that may be what phase 2 of his repeal and replace program he mentioned after he lost it.

I think all your saying where you live you have guarantees of privacy, likely even built into law and have the luxury to take basic privacy for granted. No need to lift a finger even, except say, your country is paranoid.

You can have trump and the Republicans, because your county is obviously undisciplined,
you will be deemed 'not good citizens' and be treated as such.

I would say you are a right -wing American, Not because of speaking English. Heck even foreigners who have English as a second or third language speak better English than a good portion of Americans in terms of communication on the internet conversing with others.
I for one am pretty bad at it as English is my first language and as an American.

Last time I was around a good computer was when Nvidia released the 290GTX and it's time I made myself a good station. In my extended absence, I didn't focus on parts, hype, and etcetera - thus, I've fallen behind.

The PC I'm trying to build is intended for streaming, gaming, rendering, and recording while keeping a low temperature. I am not trying to go all out either and I'm trying to be around the price of 2k. I can go higher or lower, just don't want to if it's avoidable.

I was thinking of having a SSD hub station or something like divided drives for separate programs to write on so the CPU doesn't have to look through a 1TB C drive while accessing DLLs.

Don't want to be extravagant, just a modest build that can do gaming on a game like Black Desert Online or Rainbow Six Siege, while recording and streaming that can also do great while rendering.

And if you guys got any tips for coolant, show me the way. Trying to get a clear view in today's market... So many people trying to shove things in my face. Feels like I'm an altar boy.

If you don't want to think too hard you can just copy someone else's build: https://pcpartpicker.com/guide/

If you want to be analytical, start with your core component performance requirements. Most people just look at a few benchmarks, pick out the few things they know they want, and then just buy whatever is on sale. Unless you're pushing up against some constraint, don't overthink it.

I'm getting unprompted text to speech audio on my computer, and I can't figure out why.

It's happened twice so far. Earlier today my computer said "like you could ever satisfy me with that tiny penis", female text to speech voice. Then a moment ago it said something else, still female but too fast for me to completely catch it.

I'm fine with my computer insulting me sexually, but it needs to do it in a way that's between the two of us, not out loud. Is this some kind of program? nothing shows up in task manager that isn't usually there. Any idea whats going on?

The USB-A connector was originally designed to be reversible but that feature has been removed prior to the release of the standard as a cost cutting measure.
Now we have a non-reversible connector in a reversible housing.

We just have to wait for another decade or so before it's finally gone and USB-C is ambiguous.
Why are there new devices with USB-A & micro USB-B?
Cost, there is still a lot of stock of these connectors in warehouses and they are cheaper than a USB-C connector, and you can get away with leaving out the cable since every consumer has a shit-ton of them.

Interestingly I don't own a single USB-C to USB-C cable, yet.

I do agree about the USB B thing though. It was standard as the device connector for AGES.

Then we started having devices too thin to put them on, and that shit gave way to USB-A to USB-A cables.

Also despite USB-B 3.x being by FAR the sturdiest connector I haven't seen it on a goddamn thing.

USB-C is a pretty necessary thing though, because micro USB-B 3.1 was UTTER DOGSHIT.

One I might mention says 60gig a month cap. But not monitored. riiighhht
I have work downloads that almost reaches that within a day or two.

Nord has been pretty decent. No issues,except they advertise all over the place. The terms of service are pretty liberal, but, a few minor things to consider. The software had generally screwed with other things. It leveled out eventually. They added rpm in downloads. Didn't get
a chance to check that out. Pure vpn, sounds pretty bad, like really
bad, as mentioning the 60 gig a month.

Reality, a vpn is pretty cheap to actually run. The service as a whole is a different story.

One needs a service that they can se the servers that are connected and can connect to individually. Not just, a button you press to connect to their best server, one for p2p, one for 'privacy.' Your should be able to see what server ip you are connected connecting to.

The 2600K is still a modern processor. It's a little pokey and it's missing AVX instructions, but if you have an SSD the only giveaway that the system is old should be the lack of USB 3.

My tale with CPU's...

In late 1999 I build a PII 800 which would overclock to 1.1GHz or thereabouts. It was accompanied by some type of graphics card that also overclocked well but I forget it's details. At first I used if for games (what else!) but quickly directed it's use for for work and research. Windows 2000 sat atop this beast with 128MB of RAM – good memories. In about 2008 the original power supply blew and the two replacement power supplied also failed in quick succession. The HD's, memory, CPU... everything was fine apart from the power supply. So, I did the easy thing and reasoned, 'this is old hat - time to update.' So, I bought a P4 from a computer shop ready to go without OS (I installed Windows 2000). I forget what exactly it was because it didn't matter to me at the time as I just assumed that after 9 years things would be sweet. But it was f'n terrible. The thing was definitely slower than my old PIII. After 3 months the power supply packed up... after another 6 months the under warranty power supply packed up and after another month I bought another power supply replacement as well as replacement memory and HD (the magic smoke was released from them). So in early 2009 I bought a ThinkPad with a core2duo. It still runs and I've updated it and it runs XP and 7 like a champ. It feels quicker than new laptops and I've built a home computer around the core2duo mobile CPU and I've been using that for almost 10 years now with only upgrades to SSD and more memory. It's a bit exotic but it does everything I need and I like that it doesn't need a 400W power supply and my UPS will keep it up for a couple hours instead of minutes. I could keep going on but any computer since about 2000 (apart from the first P4's) with an SSD and good amount of RAM and $60 GPU will be great to use... unless you are a cock-smoker and what to play everything in 8K. I've also had plenty of experience with heaps of other CPU's but generally I don't think it matter anymore as far as feel goes.

Background
I run Ubuntu 17.10 on my laptop and need to upgrade it.
Use it for coding microcontrollers (so need proper USB support), Web development, and general use.
No upgrading Ubuntu never works because fuck I don't care why.

I am not a new to choosing different Linux distros, I was even one of these guys who did run gentoo on his home pc. But not any more, because well I don't want my OS to be a hobby just fucking use it.

What annoys me are the release cycle and fucking outdated packages you get.
So I like that arch has rolling updates but I am not familiar with it and I do not want to spend time doing neckbeard shit.

I'm this close to installing windows on the thing so help.

>But in 2019 the OS should just be able to install all the necessary drivers based on the Vendor/Device IDs without additional user input.
Yeah, I most definitely agree. It should.
Things just working is the reason I still keep with slackware though, as I wrote in depth. Still haven't met a distro that takes care of stuff automatically AND correctly. Weird shit that would take more effort to fix than to just do the manual stuff in slack, and the automatic stuff will never bork your system on its own.
Once set up, you're set up. JustWerks forever. It might be like carving rock but once you're done you're done.
>TL;DR
Not trying to argue or convert you to the glorious tasty goodness, just kinda. Not having to muck about with unnecessary stuff is the prime reason as to why I keep using it.

Need 'actual' help go here, https://www.pclinuxos.com/forum/
They will tell you to look it up yourself when it's something
you can find, if you can muck through all the 'ubuntu', help
pages.

You can install this system in about 5 minutes, update
in about 5 minutes. It will recognize your hardware
without issues. If an issue arises, the forum will help.

If a software is outdated, just ask. If it isn't ready or
has some flaw it will be reverted until issues are
resolved.

In all it is a minimal system that you can run out of the box,
or make it, say as 'interesting' to work with as you like.

Why is Windows' force quite so shit when compared to Linux? (Maybe Mac too? Never used one)

Seriously, with windows, you tell it to end the fucking process like 10,000 times before it actually does anything. With Linux, just use killall, kill, xkill, whatever you want, and *bloop* it's gone. What makes the processes for killing an unresponsive application so different?

I've been thinking of getting a website of my own just for fun (not a chan, just for personal stuff and jokes and maybe later re-use the address+server for a lil mini-business thing), and to make an inside-joke abstract webNewspaper to make the day of some people I know. I've already checked that the address I want is free and not too expensive, but I've no idea where to go from there.
Is there any good collected page with info about just, how to run a website?
As far as I understand you would rather rent a small server-instance from some bigger company rather than selfhost and invite weird traffic to your home-network?
Also how hard would it be to set up my own mail-server on the site (is that even included when you buy an address)? Like, would it be a bad idea for a webstuff-noob like me that might misconfigure something or is it pretty straightforward (as long as you're not too daft to grok the manuals)?

Your registrar will provide the mail server and the setup is basically automatic if you use the registrar's service. For the website itself, you will use a CDN like Wordpress, or the registrar likely has its own CDN as well.
In short, ask your registrar.
Any idiot can set up a basic website with the modern tools provided.

Neat, thanks!
Though if one would like to have more fun and set things up oneself, get some experience with the manual gritty fun parts, is that pretty much a no-no if you're not on your own server (as in on-location hardware)? Or are there services that are more loose with what you're allowed to host?

This was true back in the day, yes. Nowadays if you're renting you're getting virtual servers from cloud providers. You're permitted root access to them, so you can install something like Apache Tomcat and build out your webpage from the ground up. Amazon is probably the most common choice, but I think they just have an Apache module (and many others) that eliminates the need to set it up directly on a VM. But you can definitely get a virtual machine running Ubuntu, Red Hat, or (god forbid) Windows and set up whatever you want.
If you want hardware level access, you have to rent rackspace in a data center and install your own hardware (pricey). You can still build from the ground up on a VM though if you want "true webdev™" experience.
