Mainly to catch windows 10 telemetry and auto updating,

I'm looking for a nice firewall that asks me allow/block before an outgoing or incoming connection is made.

The only ones Ive used in the past were:
  • Zone Alarm - it was decent and I may try it out again to see how it's changed in six years
  • GlassWire Free - This one is out of the question, as the free version doesnt block anything until AFTER the fact, and you have to manually go and block it instead of on-demand.

You can turn these off. Just poke around a bit. But I would recommend outpost firewall free. Just turn off windows firewall and you can control what happens

Turn off 'alerts' after you get to know it for a while, after you know know what things look like.
Your network, computer, will have constant connections, random or otherwise that your router
will drop anyway. Your router will drop connections that you or a program on your computer
did not initiate.

Zone alarm is lame. Over emphasized as a firewall. Built in windows firewall is better. Updates would screw an good install up. It would have every random connection, as a threat. After soo many random alerts, a popup "get the paid version, "for piece of mind" would appear.

As person says, trust what you have. I am Leary about how MS win 10 says it collects information.
I just use win 7 pro and a trusted linux distribution.

I got this one called "Free Firewall", sold by Evorim and designed by some little software company. It's in English but comes from some european country.
Whats the catch. Why is it free...

Worth waiting for SSDs (in 2017)

Have SSD's prices started to level off, or should I still wait to buy one?
With the way flash drives got so cheap in the last 4 years, I'm willing to be patient in order to get a better value for a large capacity SSD.

What do you think? I'm not one to frequently upgrade parts, so I'd be buying a large one and don't want to end up regretting it and wishing I'd waited.

And dont forget to disable the following for SSD Life

  1. System Restore - life and performance
  2. Hybernation - life
  3. Pagefile - life
  4. Superfetch - life and performance
  5. Optimize Drive

>And dont forget to disable the following for SSD Life
Or don't don't forget. It isn't not an unbig deal.

Although the SSD I've had for years and only eaten 3% into its lifespan was an MLC drive and probably has a lot more write cycles overall than the triple level 3d NAND flash.

But seriously don't disable hibernate and shit unless you need the space. Just set your computer to sleep instead of hibernate. Hibernate it yourself if you want to.

>System Restore - life and performance

As someone who almost never has system restore enabled, I would literally never recommend not to have system restore enabled. The people who run with system restore off don't need to be told lol.

Harvesting Animation From an Existing Cartoon

Ok, this might not be the right place to ask this, but it seemed the likeliest board here.

I want to know how to harvest character animations and backgrounds from an existing cartoon to eventually make a parody cartoon of the same subject, similarly to what cartoon network did when making their Space Ghost parody spinoffs.

I tried googling it, but I'm really not sure how to even phrase it to get the right results. Anyone who knows anything about the subject, any links you could provide on it or advice on a more appropriate place to look for info about this, I would greatly appreciate.

You can mask out the background, but it's of very limited use for compositing. Then as now, the only way to get anything of quality is to rotoscope animations. This is tedious, but doesn't require talent.

Unless you know programming (hint moviepy, opencv) you might try to use image stabilization, cropping and or masking, stabilizing again un-stabilizing afterward etc... And a lot of trail and error.
You"d need adobe premiere or a similar tool though. I am not aware of free software that would be able to do it.

For best results own proper tools and know programming.
Of course if all else fails you can also do frame-by frame with a lasso tool.

Realistically though you might just trace the characters to have them in an animateable vector format and do your own animations.

The tor has had issues, the biggest was a firefox issue. Nothing to do with tor
it'sself. Soo keep it updated. disable javascript within firefox, a few other things can help. Don't browse like sites an adversary know when and what time you may visit these sites. Non-https sites.

Well since most people probably use Firefox it's a pretty big fuckin issue.

Well it is what it is. Frefox and tor is open source, it's updated when vulnerabilities are discovered. I would call firefox the least of concerns in the scheme of security concerns. These are addressed in a manner with global suppport.

NVMe

File: 1488274731212.jpg -(65602B / 64.06KB, 600x166) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size. NVMe
  1. Will my Asus Z170 Pro Gaming/Aura mobo boot from an NVMe M.2-PCIe 3.0 SSD? NVMe isn't even referenced anywhere in the manual, so I don't have a good feeling about it.

2. Is it really that likely that I'll have to clock my 3000MHz DDR4 down to auto/2133MHz for it to play nice with NVMe, as I've read is sometimes the case?

3. If booting from an NVMe drive isn't possible, are AHCI M.2-PCIe or AHCI M.2-SATA cards worth the expense, or should I just get a 1.8"/2.5" AHCI SATA SSD?

4. Oh, and Windows 10 does have decent native NVMe drivers now, right?

5. Lastly, is migrating my Win10 install from HDD to SDD just a simple matter of creating a partition table on the SDD and cloning the partition over from the HDD?

Sorry for the fuckload of questions.

  1. Ask Asus Tech support. Don't ask us to google something for you
  2. I dont' know, that might be a thing.
  3. the speed gains from any M.2 drive are overrated unless you're trying to load very large files. If you're working on a film editing project, they're great as a scratch disk for quickly scrubbing through a timeline with zero load times. Otherwise, you're really not going to see a substantial upgrade in terms of boot times and overall system responsiveness versus a conventional SSD
  4. Yes
  5. Yes. Samsung typically includes a cloning utility with their SSDs that will accomplish this.

The thing is some NVME sticks are getting to be very good value.
https://www.amazon.com/Intel-600p-SSDPEKKW512G7X1-Reseller-Single/dp/B01JSJA65C/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1489008388&sr=8-2&keywords=ssd+600p

They don't actually have the write performance of a high speed NVME SSD. I do video work but nothing high res or particularly big projects so it's been great for me.

That's only 40 bucks or so more than a comparable sata SSD, and in the M.2 space the price difference is less than that.

I might have dipped down to a regular style SSD for a terabyte at a more reasonable price, but I got a big fat hard drive instead.

If OP couldn't boot from the NVME stick I could help set up a boot partition on your other drive. You can do it from the recovery option but it's finnicky.

Ohai,
i want to talk with you about how cybernetics and technology is attacking us and our future. So before we start i recommend to read this https://capulcu.blackblogs.org/wp-content/uploads/sites/54/2015/12/BandII-enbooklet.pdf first. I think its the best way to synchronize ourselfes to go in a discussion.

The big question is how we fight against it and how we raise more attention about it.

  1. Don't read sensationalist crap
  2. Cybernetics and Trans-humanism are completely different things.
  • Cybernetics is just a mathematical tool to reason about human / machine interactions in rigorous way.
  • Transhumanism is a crackpot ideology of people that wants to archive eternal life through a technological process (for themselves in their lifetime)
3. AI research actually is a well established field and the theory about handling agents safely is well debated stuff inside computer science departments.

Just see what this guy has to say
