The US as I understand has the ability to monitor all incoming and outgoing telephone calls to and from the US. It should not be mass surveillance, but rather targeted in good faith to legitimate targets.

In reality it's the people. People who hate arab entities, that chop peoples hands off for stealing. Yet say, we should chop the hands off thieves in the US. We already have a justice system. why screw it up any more than the part that are screwed up.

The comes worse than Bush, Trump. Who serves no logical purpose in government. And people still feed off that. Who on the republican side is planning to run against trump, nobody, while Democrats have a list of people to research and make actual decisions. Like Bush said this would be much easier if it were a dictatorship. trump demands 'loyalty.' Right wingers are just plain shit in politics. Even the ones that speak against him, because they brought him and the country where it is at today. I do not feel sorry for people that helped lead us here. The make America great again. Trump said, the world hates America. Bush said the world will buy America.

It's ok though, if they say and do what they do because their 'cult-like' followers don't question themselves their party or in reality even question Democrats.

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.

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.

So I decided on torguard because i could get it for the same price as surfshark. After paying and downloading, I read the "term of service" and it pissed me off. It says things like:

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.

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?

These kinds of import restrictions are aimed at bulk shipments. They can't screen the tidal wave of parcels from Asia so the unit you buy off of Banggood will probably arrive. Also they're all shit so buy whatever.

Really nice, used to be on VimFX so was heartbroken when it got killed by firefox changing how their addon system works.
Nice to know it won't get pulled out from under you (as long as the project suvives) as it's the main thing of the browser, not an addon.

I am new to Linux so I got Manjaro KDE however I can't seem to figure out how to install tar.bz2 files. I extracted it and now what do I do? Any advice helps!
ArchieParringville.cbl - Fri, 20 Sep 2019 02:01:07 EST Qx3lfgFz No.122478 Reply
Well tar.bz2 is just an archive, so we won't know what's actually inside without you telling us.
Some are just the actual program inside, or if you downloaded the source you'll will have to compile it. The basic steps are just to (pwd must be inside the folder)
make install

Will work in a pinch, but it might not be set up the way you want, it's just the standard build. When you build from source there might be options you'd want to disable/enable. Just compiling without knowing shouldn't be standard procedure.
Also doing it that way won't actually make a "package" that is installed, won't be listed with the rest of installed packages. Probably are tools to make a package as the build process, but they are distribution-particular so no idea what it'd be under Manjaro.

Best option would be to keep to things available through your package manager as much as possible unless you reallly need a newer version or program that isn't on there.

Also if you're gonna into Linux it'd probably be a good idea to get into the habit of actually googling things first, both cause stuff like this has already been asked by every other beginner, and you won't have to wait around for answers.
"install tar.bz2 manjaro" on google gets you loads of different variations of the same answer.

Have a practice run by figuring out how you make a package from source under Manjaro.

what all do i need to keep my identity as obscured as possible online? Ive been tryna not to jump into this stupid. if i :
>factory reset my computer
>edit my device's MAC address
>use socks
>use hide.me
>keep vpn shit running constantly if its online
>never log into anything attatched to my real identity on the device
is that enough?
is it still unsafe to use my own wifi/ethernet with all that?

my device is a macbook air
i know i will have to create a new apple ID to set it up when i reset it, any advice on the best method of doing so? should i just create a new hotmail acc thru a vpn?

i also have a old iphone 4 (never registered to me) i was gonna use in conjunction with it and just buy a burner SIM for after clearing it out with phoneclean and jailbreaking it. But im worried that even the burner SIM is a bad idea to have linked to the macbook air in any way cos it will still still be location specific. should i make a tertiary apple ID for the phone if i want to use it too? i was hoping to avoid doing so cos it would make everything more difficult than if i could just link them.

i have a handful of other windows computers i can use if i need but i don't wanna doom them to a life of secrecy

this is babby's first post so im sorry its prob been made 100 times

I think you can on mac computers, but routers, some will allow you to do that. If you get anthers mac address by coincidence if may cause some issues. Use an old router and change the mac a bit using that mac address. I guess ne could use hardware mac addresses just as well.

On a mac, one would change a MAC address if browsing, whatever, wireless.
On a home router, internet, it would make little difference. Some travel with routers, where they could change the MAC on these. Not much more complicated.

Compliments to a router ot basic internet connection is, dnscrypt or other dns encryption. Otherwise you have your dns queries in the US for how long, 3 years was the law. Reality, why have your ISP, hold a DNS request for a period of time,
when you are just browsing recipes, sports, etc. Actually, ISPS, servers seem to get overloaded and slow to resolve ip addresses. Maybe because they have to store DNS queries by law, by default.
