How does everyone feel about this new Linux Phone crowd funding effort? Especially if securephone guy is still around, what do you think?

They're trying to separate the phone/radio stuff from the cpu stuff to be more secure. Also there's hardware killswitches for Bluetooth/cam/wifi/etc.

Sounds pretty ideal, but $600 to buy in... Plus it's crowdfunding, which you never know if it will deliver. Anyone know much about this company?

>Sounds pretty ideal, but $600 to buy in
It's going to have to be a custom board in low volume, so the unit cost won't be competitive.

>Plus it's crowdfunding, which you never know if it will deliver.
I would bet money that phones will ship with all the important stuff like kill switches. I would also bet money that the software will be lacking and the overall UX will be janky.

Hello, fellow 420channers.

I, once again, came to ask for a piece of advice.

I built a PC from brand new components, but my CPU fan is too loud and it sounds a little incosistent. This is my setup (no GPU involved):

MB Gigabyte B250M-D3H, s.1151, DDR4
CPU Intel Core i5-7500 (3,4 GHz, 6MB, LGA 1151) BOX, KabyLake
RAM Kingston 2x8GB DDR4 2400MHz CL17 SR x8 (KVR24N17S8K2/16)
HDD SSD Samsung 850 EVO, 2.5", 250GB, SATA III, Basic
CORSAIR VS550, 80+, 550W
NET GIGABYTE WB867D-I, PCI-E

I use the fan, which was in the CPU package. Perhaps the fan itself is shitty and this is causing the problem. However, I collected some data, while in BIOS and I would like to know whether these are normal.

In normal mode, fan rotates at
1000 RPM (19 degrees celsius) MIN
2500 RPM (64 degrees celsius) MAX

While in BIOS, the CPU's temperature is at 49 degrees celsius. In normal mode, it means around 2000 RPM and it is very loud. When i switch to silent mode, I get about 1500 RPM, which is acceptable.

Is 49 degrees in BIOS regular temperature in the first place? Is there anything wrong with the CPU itself, or the default fan is just shitty and I ought to buy a new one?

Thanks in advance for kind answers...

Loud fans are usually due to bad wiring or a bad fan it self or a dying fan. Get it a new one. The CPU temp is well on the average side and I doubt it has anything to do with that.

49 sounds high for a new CPU. what you want is firm metal-to-metal contact between the CPU and the heat sink. the thermal paste is just to fill air bubbles.

Hello all.

Right now, I stay at a dorm, and at night, a lot of my peers here are constantly sapping up bandwidth; before I continue, I'm just going to say I don't want to do this *constantly*, but just at certain times when it starts becoming frustrating to have to do schoolwork.

I read about this program called KickThemOut, which runs off of Debian and also MacOS, neither of which I am currently running on my laptop. I want to use it, and create a partition on my HDD so I can boot into Debian and give this a shot. Besides Win32-Loader (image related), are there any othr techniques I can use to basically "force" certain IPs off the network without admin status?

Hey guys,

First off I'm sorry for posting about what must be a redundant subject.

I'm looking for a GOOD mechanical keyboard with keys that don't make all too much noise, relatively speaking.

The 'Logitech G810 Orion' looks like a pretty good one to me and has very positive reviews wherever I look.

Do you yourself own a mechanical keyboard? Which one would you recommend, if any?

Thanks a bunch in advance!

If it's gaming you want get a linear smooth switch type like Cherry reds or blacks.
If it's typing you want, get the tactile browns.

The non-tactile switches confer essentially no benefit for typing compared to a conventional keyboard, though some of them only require a very light press by comparison.
The non-tactile switches also do not have any kind of deadzone they need to be lifted past to re-actuate. You can just wiggle your finger near the actuation point and they'll spam fast as hell.

So I might leave for a long period of time, like at least one year. I am wondering:
Is it okay to store a laptop inside a cardboard box inside closet? Summers can get really hot here but only last like 4 months and I'm unsure whether this is a good idea or not.
Shall I leave the battery in or take it out? Does it make any difference? Also I don't want it exploding caused by heat and humidity. Also also is battery life going to worsen by not turning the laptop on for a long time, plugged or unplugged?
And most importantly, is HDD going to get fucked in anyway?
It's an old snsv EEE 1000 laptop that's been serving faithfully for more than 10 years without any problems whatsoever except changing thermal paste, I'm amazed how reliable this thing is but I don't want to kill it stuffing in a dark place.

take out the hard drive. that's really the only part that's valuable (unless you got a gaming laptop, in which case all the hardware is valuable)
turn it on again and see if you hear the noise. if yes, then it's just the fan. maybe it's really hot and they're kicking up. check the air outlets for dust and blow some compressed air if necessary.
if no, and you think it was the hard drive that was making that sound... well I hope you have backups. if you do have backups, then just get a new hard drive and reinstall your OS, and restore your data.

strangest thing ever... it was actually bios trying to boot usb first. last time i turned off the laptop with the usb stick plugged in, and unless there was a stick in, laptop would make some really scary noises, not sure where were they coming from but didn't sound like hdd or fan. all i had to do was plug in usb stick in while the laptop was booting and everything's fine after that.
i'm still going to proceed with long term storage, but just wanted to share this weird experience.

Hey guys,

I don't have the money to buy a complete new build right now but my AMD Radeon HD 7870 2GB keeps giving me crashes.

I was thinking of buying a used GPU in the meantime to at least have a stable computer, while I put money aside for a brand new PC.

Could someone recommend me a GPU that has similar performances and is on the cheap side?

Thanks in advance guys!

if you are active on any social media, especially G+, twitter or FB (yes, they sell your info to Google, among others), just having ONE of your known friends mention Bayesian thinking on some post somewhere, it will apply that to you as well.

This is especially true if Google knows you're working together.

It still applies no matter how many profiles you have, once Google & co. can out that you're the same person, and it will mix the profiling info across those accounts (this is true for both my work and home account)

Even if you don't have a profile, as long as you stay on the same PC, Google can and will build a profile around that PC. In this case, if you'd be searching far and wide for gay porn, all the other users on same PC (if they don't use a login) will get a suspicious amount of gay porn in their searches.

LinkedIn and FB are particularly scary. My workplace recently got a new employee... the only mails about this were sent through company servers (onsite Exchange), and my FB is not in any way connected to either my primary mail address, nor do I have anybody at work as FB friends. I haven't even met the guy in real life! Yet, the guy shows up as a recommended friend or connection...

The only plausible way LI and FB could have gotten that info, would have been if they bought it from Google ( i use Chrome only for diagnosis and the search A LOT at work, though never with my private account) and Google would have listened in on my other Firefox / Chrome tabs, my webmail and my Outlook client. I should note that I personally never access social media at work apart from company marketing/promotion profiles...

Hey /tech/,

TL;DR I'm going to make the switch to Linux soon but I'm wary that I've missed out some important things to consider

So in preparation of making The Great Transition, I'm looking at a few websites that showcase Linux eqivalents, namely these ones:

http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/Linux_software_equivalent_to_Windows_software
http://alternativeto.net/platform/linux/

I'm also reading through the documentation to Debian as I've decided that I want to put the LXDEbian distro on my old Acer Aspire One netbook first in order to get things set up tastily and familiarise myself before I switch over on my gaming rig too. I'm anticipating that it'll require a bit more thought as detailed by this thread:

https://www.leddit.com/r/pcmasterrace/comments/2z0evz/gpu_passthrough_or_how_to_play_any_game_at_near/

Lastly, I don't want to get anything wrong so I'm going to follow good practice by not going online at all until I've figured everything out that comes in the stock distro before I start adding/updating software. I will be RTFM of everything I want to use, and I am also making extensive notes based off of this section of the Debian Manual:

Sorry, I wasn't being clear. I'm going to be putting the Debian distro on my netbook utilising the LXDE desktop environment.

To put my mind at ease I'd rather harden the environment from stock, and then loosen the security/find a work-around that maintains security when I find I need something that's been disabled.

I will be going online to update all the things eventually, but whie I'm getting everythng set-up i'll just be relying on the latest stable long-term support release. I'd rather be cautious going forward than to do this willy-nilly and find out there are holes all other the place from not hardening things properly. I will be looking at the manuals for the latest stable release of all software that I'm going to come into contact with too, just so that I'm not surprised by any new features/options that get may get added.

You don't have to be a sysadmin to care about the security of your data.

Hey /tech/ I was wondering if I could get some help configuring this little hotspot I just bought.

So I purchased a Netgear AC791L hotspot from Verizon. I got it because I wanted it as portable internet for playing my Switch. I can connect to the internet with it fine, I can even dl updates and get into the eshop. However when I actually try and join a match it just gives me a “NAT Traversal” error and kicks me. This is just a configuration problem right? I’m rather ignorant about this stuff and was hoping someone here might know what settings I need to change to make this hotspot work with my switch?

Thank you

The problem is that Verizon is giving you a shared IP address and isn't trying to route incoming connections to you. You either need to pay for additional services or use a tunnel of some kind, probably a VPN on a separate router.

No idea what a "static IP pool identifier" is though so not sure what values I should put in there....,
