Hello /tech/, I've came across some posts where some guy was able to pull all of the posts associated with a user's ID on a board and create a report showing all of them. He used Oracle Reports here's an example https://pastebin.com/sUxs61uP
Unfortunately i have no experience with oracle.

I was wondering if you guys could give me some ideas on how to use this myself or at least let me know how much effort would be required to set this up and create reports of my own, i need it for... reasons.

First you need to mirror the site either through scraping or the API. Then you need to ingest everything into a database. Rinse and repeat unless you just want a snapshot. Once you want a report, skip Oracle Reports because wtf are you doing with your life and proceed directly to knitr. If the report generation is the only part of this that you don't understand, it's stupidly easy. If not, good luck.

Should I get the Galaxy Note 5 or a Microsoft Surface 2 strictly for the purpose of playing oldschool runescape at work? (and other places when i'm out and about)

My current phone is beat the fuck up but I don't know if 5.7 inches will be enough.

Sounds like a personal preference thing to me. Go to a store, look at the screens on both devices, and decide if the smaller one is sufficient for you. Maybe bring up a screenshot on the demo device to see how it scales.

Sup, I have no idea about video cameras or camcorders and want some advice. Since Newegg and others yield these shitty results containing a thousand chinese imports with no reviews, I have no idea what to look for.

I need something to:

>720 or 1080 video
>Record up to 1hr continuous videos, or at a minimum of 20mins if I can't get this feature
>USB or Firewire compatible
>Priced around 150-200 USD
>Can record without being plugged in/new batteries for 1hr
>Rechargeable would be nice.
>Preferably have a high speed function capable of recording rapid motion mechanical shit and not be a complete blur. I doubt I'll find this in the price range but it would be very nice for demonstrations
>Be rugged enough to not break within a year of use
>If it matters, it doesn't have to take audio because I have external microphones to do that. I'm open to unconventional ideas such as security cameras if they take decent video.

So far I've found some really cheap "Zoom" cameras and Sony Handycams. After wading through a mile of shitty chinese no-name junk. Is there a website for finding cameras? Newegg has turned into alibaba it seems.

Thanks in advance.

By all means get into what you are doing and you should become addicted and seek more higher levels of projects.

I've had a Galaxy S5 for about a year now and its done me great up until a few days ago. the screen is cracked as well as majorly fucking up.

I dont need such a big phone that isnt comfortable to use with one hand. I'm looking for something with a smaller screen with the same performance or greater than the s5. something that isnt slow in 2017 and can handle everyday apps just fine for around $200

What would you guys reccomend? and is the iPhone 5s still good today for the money?

If you up your budget by about 30 bucks you can get a ZTE Blade v8 Pro which has pretty good specs for the price.
Dual camera so you can take bokeh pics (if you're into that)
good processor,
3GB ram
8MP front camera
compatible with 5GHz wifi (AC)

I was gonna buy it, but alas ZTE locked the bootloader so there's no way to root, which is a deal breaker for me.

But if you don't care about that it's a damn good phone for the price.

Just want some feedback on this modular build I'm making. Everything initially being used will be upgraded eventually... But for now I'm not trying to go all out.
> B250 ASRock Fatal1ty Performance
> Pentium G4560 3.5 GHz
> Nvidia 1060

I didn't list the RAM because it's just fucking RAM. I'm not discrediting its importance, it's just not important for what I'm talking about today. Just assume I've got 2x16 sticks.

I also didn't list hard drives because I am drawing blanks on them so if anyone has some cheap but wonderful ideas, I'm all eyes and ears.

I'm not trying to play processor intensive games. Just some shit like EQ2 and then Ashes of Creation once I upgrade the CPU. Yes I know there are better CPUs but with the I-9 and the AMD Thread ripper coming out, I'll wait for that to come out before upgrading.

Not trying to spend more than 700 USD because I'd probably revamp my build at that point and probably end up spending more money than necessary for a rig to play ancient games.

It is still a waste of money. There are what 5-6 major components to a computer.

Why not just wait 6 months when you can buy everything outright and save at least half your money. Buying with the intention of upgrading is a waste. No matter how you slice it. Build something to last 3-4 years.

And 4k looks like shit too, about 2560×1440 is the zen between looking real and looking completely artificial. 4k just has way too much pixel density to look decent in my opinion.

Why not wait? How about because you don't want to? Sounds like a good reason to me. You can sell used but current parts on ebay for around 90% of what you paid. Also there's nothing wrong with how 4K looks. Saying 2K looks real and 4K looks artificial puts you squarely in full retard territory. I'm going to assume that bought a 2K screen, have buyer's remorse, and now need to defend that purchase. Maybe some day you will just learn to like what you have and not worry so much about what other people choose.

Nope I only have a 100 dollar sony tv for a monitor that is 720. I've gamed and watched shit on many different displays. Plasma still has the best image. 4k is too crisp to do anything but give a headache after a number of hours and "2k" is the best medium.

I bet you're American. You guys always get so hung up on the next biggest and best thing. There will come a point when the pixel density is just too much to look anything but artificial. Maybe people want to watch something that looks unreal. I don't. Real life doesn't look that clear, so why do I want to watch something that looks like I have eagle vision?

But whatever, call me an idiot, waste your money and live a life of debt until you die old and working. I'm still perfectly fine at 720p. Elitist.

Computer randomly shuts off

Windows 8.1, Samsung NP770Z7E-S01PL laptop (shit series, would not recommend, you will kill yourself trying to maintain it).

Problem: computer randomly shuts off. To be more exact, happened while gaming. I had a gaming session of 3-4 hours. I thought something might be overheating, so I opened my laptop, cleaned everything, dusted off with canned air, replaced thermal paste. Nothing really changed, the GPU and CPU maintain a maximum temp of ~90 degrees (the laptop CPUs maximum maintainable temp is 115 degrees, like wtf). I don't think the problem is overheating, because then I wouldn't have been able to play for that much time without crashing?

I heard a thing about no pagefile being the cause of this, so thinking of giving it a try.

Any ideas? All drivers up-to-date. What else?

So, I have a Luddite friend who still uses dead media. I recommended some shows...he doesn't have the streaming services I do...yadayada I need copies of popular shows.

Questions -

1 - Is torrenting a thing still, and how do you get on a decent site now?

2 - Conversely, any apps out there that can snag the video stream and dump it for conversion later?

Torrenting is absolutely still around. For finding torrents that don't require an invite, I would recommend searching 1337x.to which is a search engine that scours many public torrent sites. If you want to get an invite to a site I would recommend joining an irc of the group, or if you're desperate enough, going to circlejerk's r/invites and requesting an invite from there.

Here's a flowchart of various torrent sites/trackers for all of your needs:

lainchan.org is run by a guy who paid $5000 for the site, supposedly. 5K for a chan with probably hundreds of visitors a month using thousands of IP addresses. I don't know what exactly drove people to fork lainchan, but it's probably very reasonable to want to get away from him.

Yeah IDK how much I trust Appleman. Kalyx wasn't very capable of running the site himself and would regularly dip into lainchan donations to eat. But he would do stuff so we knew he was legit like posting an entire recording of a mumble meeting with the mods.

Holy shit there is a lot of drama about .jp

If you're opening folders directly, Windows does this by default. If you're opening a window and then navigating to a folder, Windows will let you have as many Windows as you want and there's probably no reasonable way to limit it. There are some freeware alternatives to Explorer you can look into though.

>windows does this by default
only if the starting window's addresses matches that of an already open window

if you reach an existing window's address via forward, back, or up, it doesn't collapse it

I can imagine why that's not done though, because the code to monitor this, while not particularly complex (one process to monitor open windows addresses), can lead to glitches, and some people may not want disappearing windows (you might for example traverse (up, up, up) in one window to grab a file to move to the other window - when the middle up leads to the same address, and then have one window collapse when you need it open)

I need help. I'm setting up my multi monitor desktop using xrandr commands in /usr/share/sddm/scripts/Xsetup. And when I get to sddm, everything is fine. When I get to my desktop, something has set my leftmost monitor from 1920x1200 to 1080 and attempted to add a 50hz mode line. I recognize those settings as my previous settings, which were set the same way. But I removed the old script that did that and I've searched for "1600x1200_50.00" throughout my entire system.

My /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d is empty. I don't know where these phantom settings are coming from. My last hope is that nvidia somehow grabbed those settings and stored them somewhere and keeps re applying them...
