OpennDns, DnsCrypt. Proven better than ISPs servers. Faster browsing. Cannot log
sites you visit. Well difficult with opendns, basically impossible with dnscrypt.

Who needs government, that is what this is really all about, having ISPs by default record sites one visits by their IP address. Make their control less
capable by using encryption. Dns, Vpn, etc,

Just moved country, main rig isnt booting and don't know why, so in the meantime I've beefed up a spare rig well beyond the specs which the case is designed for.

Too many drives to fit? Extra drives chilling out the back of the case seated on books

Too many fans? Added fan controller and gaffa taped fans in place (case has space of only one tiny fan...) and left the case wall off

Wait.... So instead of just taking out the non-functioning components in your main rig and putting the spare rig in there, you're cramming them into a generic office PC case in? makes perfect sense.

Hello, should I fuck around with graphic card settings that I have no clue about? I want more framerate, I want it so bad. Tell me how to do that but please dont trick me into setting my laptop on fire, I live in poverty and eat nothing but potatos and who knows when I find another computer from the recycle bin.

Picture only for reference, its not my catalyst center because my catalyst center refuses to open at the moment for some reason.

What to do with ~$500 dollars: upgrade old PC or buy a PS4 Pro?

So I could throw an i5 4460 (would rather 4670 but i don't see any new for less than $350), a GTX 1050 ti 4G and 8GB ram in my 3+ year old mid-range build which would let me run modern games at 1080p a lot better (currently have a GTX 660 2GB, one of the i3 at 3.40 and only 8GB ram) for about $500. Or I could buy a PS4 Pro 1TB and a few games for that same amount.

It's E3 and tomorrow is also June 10th which is Amazon Prime day, and I've got a $100 gift card at Amazon that I've been sitting on. So potentially, there could be even better deals on components/consoles tomorrow. I'm stuck because I really can't afford to do both. My PC is running fine but upgrading it would let me play some games in my Steam library at much better framerates that I've been waiting to play for a bit, but I'd also like to play some of the Playstation exclusives and the Pro seems like it would be a nice living room fixture for the next 5 years or so...

Not sure where to go, I'm leaning towards the PC upgrade but it is probably going to depend on tomorrow's deals.

Thoughts?

Well if used CPUs that have been tested are okay (i've never bought one used), Amazon has some options too, and some of the sellers have high satisfaction ratings with 1000+ sales... so maybe it would be fine? I mean this 4670k for about $150 is pretty tempting...

I'll have to check ebay too.

Not only are used CPUs okay, but performance increases are such small increments these days that they're really good value.

If you can catch an enterprise level CPU dump wave you can pick up SERIOUSLY beefy old 2011v1 or 2011v2 Xeon CPUs that kick ass and have a shitload of cores.

The trick is just to get in on it before the motherboards run out. At some point I was considering it. The unlocked 12 core xeons were 80 bucks a pop but the dual socket motherboard to match it was over $450. I was a little late.

yeah, i ended up getting a 4670k for about $170 and a new GTX 1060. I don't have a 1440p monitor or anything so I should be set for awhile. Pretty stoked to throw them in, should be here in a couple of days.

Thanks for the advice /tech/, I honestly wouldn't have even thought to go for a used CPU had I not checked in here first.

Trying to detect wifi network, it sees wifi, but can't connect to internet. Did all the troubleshooting steps on their site, didn't help. Reset router, reset saved wifi network, reset network to default settings on modem and xbox, no other wifi shit to interfere, router is like 5 feet from box. What the FUCK am I doing wrong?

I have bought some PNP transistors. I had this theory that because NPN transistors are normally open until you apply a positive current to the "base", that PNP transistors would be normally closed until you applied current to the "base. OH BOY I WAS WRONG!

This leads into my question. I want a device that will stay in a closed state until I apply current to a base (or equivalent). I don't want to use relays for this because they require 12v to run and I already have another relay in my circuit (so no no to more relays). Instead I want a hacky chad solution to my problem. I would prefer to stick to something that is solid state, which won't add too much resistance to my first relay.

PNP transistors and NPN transistors are very simple devices. They work the same, except one requires a ground at the base, while the other requires a positive voltage. What you want is a NOT gate, here is a simple one using NPN transistors.

The idea is, the input transistor draws all the power away from the secondary transistor to stop the secondary transistor from conducting.

The Amplifier is similar, except it uses a PNP transistor as the secondary, instead of an NPN.

I bought a couple of non-working mid-2007 apple macs for £20 thinking oh I'll just fix these up and sell them on.

Then I realised I have no idea what I'm doing.

I opened the fuckers up to realise whoever had them first took the hard drives out. No problem, I've got some spares I can replace in. I put a single partition on the drive. I boot an OS X 10.6 install disk and I get this error.

No idea why, it's an apple mac and it's an OS X. I feel it should just go ahead and install to the drive. Can anyone give me any pointers?

I’ve been out of the loop and without a desktop for about 5-6 years, and I’m expecting a windfall in the coming months. I’m done dabbling with os modding, multibooting, hardware kajiggery (except ram, drives), etc. and just want to game and Internet with the occasional graphic design and a/v editing dabbles.

What do y’all recommend in the $500-1500 (usd) range?

Honestly it's been over a decade since I fucked with anything computer or programming related. Thing is I have a lot of time on my hands because I'm sort of disabled and out of work atm so I have some time to dick around and learn.

I have a couple questions about what it takes to set up a website through the Tor network. First I'm assuming the only way to be properly secure I would have to physically keep the server in my possession right? Or are there web hosting services out there that are safe to run a tor site through? As far as coding for a website are there some good resources online you could point me to for coding and web server configuration? I don't remember anything.

Depends how many people you want to host and what you want to do with it. The simplest way is just to buy a raspberry pi and setup linux with apache and tor.

There are tons of tutorials on how to set up a tor hidden service on an RPi.

Of course don't do anything (too) illegal or you will get vanned. And don't expect to be able to serve many users (like 10 max I guess).

Assuming you're still checking this thread.

When you say "a lot of time" how much exactly? Because you can hack together a hidden website in a day but it will be a leaky cardboard siv held together with unrealistic expectations.

Start by learning how to make a secure website on the "real" internets then learn how the tor network works. Then learn how people and governments have hacked tor sites in the past. Then like others said, don't do anything shady because you've probably fucked up along the way at some point.
