I know, right? I remember back in the day, about to buy a sheet of acid off Silk Road but pussed out. At the time, bitcoin was like, $0.10 a coin so had I pussed out after buying $500 worth of bitcoin, I could be a millionaire.

Although, knowing my dumbass, I would have sold them a month later after they hit $0.20 a coin...

Aliminum to "Extend" Audio Jack Cable

Hey guys!

Alright, I'm really bad when it comes to things like this, hence this (very likely) stupid post.

The right side of my Audio-Technica headphones isn't working anymore. I don't know whether or not it's merely the cable.

Here's the thing though: I can't test it with a spare audio jack because of its design. It is too deep than for me to reach the actual port.

The picture highlights the aforementioned problem so that hopefully by now you understand what I'm going on about. So to sum it up, the "overextending" part of the cable is supposed to go in as well, so that it is far enough to make contact.

So finally here comes my question. Could I just put some aluminum foil at the end of the cable in order to reach the port and establish a connection? Or, is this the worst and dumbest idea in the history of /tech/? Also what would be the potential risks (assuming it is even worth trying).

Well at least I'm asking before doing anything since I really don't want to wreck my headphones, which I truly love and miss so much.

Thanks in advance my friends. Any tip on how to test if it's just the cable or not will definitely be greatly appreciated.

The thing I don't like it is I had an M50x with the swappable cables. Well I jiggled it around 'cos I had the one cable I liked and it would generally bring the left side back to working. Thing is, when I tried the other cables, it turned out that it's the single non-replaceable part of the connection that broke.

Call me paranoid but it seemed intentional.

I have a smartphone and I'd like to get something less easily spied on, out of principle. Is there anything smart that's relatively secure (I like being able to use maps and whatsapp but not a lot else) or alternatively do I need to "downgrade" and if so to what?

Depends on how tech savvy you are. If you're comfortable figuring out how to install your own OS on mobile you can use that and be relatively safe.

By default though you should treat mobile phones as a device that isn't secure period. Nothing sensitive or that you wouldn't want others to know should ideally end up on there.

I have a video card that I use.
Will it hurt anything if i turn my motherboard's "video out" on?

-------
I want to plug my PC to my big TV but the HDMI on my video card is messed up.

Will it hurt anything like using too much power of put too much demand on the cpu if I turn the motherboard's video out on?

I also have two monitors on my video card already.

THANK YOU TO WHOEVER TAKES THE TIME TO ANSWER MY SILLY QUESTION. <3 YOU

it depends on the motherboard. some allow it, others (usually older ones) don't.
search for your motherboard's manual on the web.
and no it won't blow up or anything if you plug both when it's not supported. you just won't get a signal for one of your screens.

Worst case, you'll have no video and need to move your cable to the other output to get to BIOS setup and revert the change.

Enabling integrated can be used to add more monitors, or to give you a way to access the host system while PCI-passthroug-hing your real GPU to a VM, or to use QuickSync to encode video if it's a recent Intel CPU.

Hey guys,

After a long process of elimination (based on price + reviews) I ended up with the BenQ ZOWIE XL2411P 144Hz as a potential purchase.

I truly don't know much about 144Hz monitors, hence why I'd really appreciate hearing your thoughts on this one. Also if you think there are better deals out there, I am 100% open to recommendations.

Thanks in advance for your help!

You're a fucking idiot. The time it starts is when you receive the prompt. If it's a midterm then you just study and you have to write the paper in the allotted time during the test (usually around 2 hours) without a computer which significantly increases the amount of time it takes to write it. Go to college and see you absolute fuckong dolt.

If you don't think a students parents paying for their kids new expensive laptop that they could live without such an expensive one,, tuition, everything. Sending money while their kids slack off and act like asses because of that 'freedom.' Don't you think the parents expect each class, each assignment, that the moment they walk into class that that is the beginning of having time to
use every moment in the class to essentially study.

One may get an assignment, then have it suddenly change. Kinda like pop quizzes. Like "are you paying attention?" Or just what kinda barely sinks in and will worry about details later.

Know what is expected as well not expected. Some professors will change an assignment just like that. From typed to written, from written to an on the spot oral presentation, to a demonstration.

We got sudden 10 page topics due the next morning, why? because. The class that day was a teachers presentation, not just teaching, but a noticeable presentation of the subject(s.) Thise who payed attention and especially saw what was coming, went home, did their work and
others were completely lost. 10 fkn pages from just one presentation by the instructor.
Or were these ongoing assignments from day one?

Corporations used services provided by AT@T, to name one, back when cell phones I don't think even remotely existed. Although two way radios, fm radio, uses trunks, 'to communicate from one to another.' These, AT@T, others, services allowed trunk access to make possible switching to long distance calls for corporations from local lines.

Trunkin I gues you could call it, has many applications, cell phones, whatever communication you can really think of. They differ greatly of course. I believe home networking is just as trunk access, switching, as anything else. As well, say lighting, um, concerts. It is communication from one party to anothers party.

This is from mostly memory from the past. And lots of studying stuff that may seem insignificant or boring. I am not that old but have worked for, with significant persons of technology. Me doing work for people who worked on components like zip drive, cd technology. Professors from like MIT, others who worked on .gov technology. technology that makes today's technology what it is. Although not knowing part of what these people are talking about, I guess i seemed enough to carry on hours of conversation. Which older technology seems basically boring, applying it to today's technology, it makes sense. If one cannot understand older technology,
how will they actually understand here and now technology. Sure you can do it, but knowing the background of like tor, understanding DNS basics. It is all worthwhile.
-
Anyway, a hacker of significance. John Draper. AKA Captain Crunch. Why capn crunch nick. More than one reason. However, he tried to sell known technology, among other known uses of switching. Made some money but not a great venture.
What he was selling was; simple tones would make phone services do it's thing, like corporations could utilize long distance, calling for commerce, etc. By switching into trunk lines. Others learned to do this also. He furthered these but few were interested. So, after Apple, and all this.

He did make a whistle, it put out a 2600Mhz frequency. So could make long distance calls. He learned this from laying lines.
What they can and are meant to accomplish by which means. This whistle, one could go to a pay phone and whistle and
access the trunk and switch. Free phone calls.

By coincidence, the cereal Capt'n Crunch had a toy prize, a whistle that could produce that same frequency. 'Wanna buy a
whistle, wanna buy a whistle" could be heard around public pay phones.

My experience, I was in Denver, the rough neighborhood,, before crack epidemic, vietnam vets were the street. Speed, acid. This guy was making a call and blowing a whistle into it. Captain Crunch whistle that he kinda tried to hide a little bit.

No he was not crazy, I knew he knew how to get free calls. By then, he tried a one part system, no deal, tried another combo, then the 3 part did work.

Calls (local were, 20 25 cents.

I was short for a dime, malfunction, whatever. but as he accomplished his goal, I asked for a dime, he rudely turned to me and said get your own. Meaning get your own Captain Crunch cereal whistle. I said, I was just asking for a dime. Anyway, that area
was upgraded in it's trunk lines. But, the 3 part motions still worked.

So Peter Dutton, Australian Minister of the Home Office and suspiciously wealthy ex Queensland drug cop, has looked at China's Jingwang Weishi software and thought "fuck yeah, let's do that." Legislation towards forcing backdoor software onto AT LEAST mobile phones is being discussed (and in every interview he keeps using the word "computer" so it's safe to assume he plans to backdoor any device his fat potato fingers can fingerbang).

https://www.circlejerk.com/r/australia/comments/9ildrd/spyware_on_phone_fears_as_dutton_pushes_new/

So here is my question. How do I go about defeating this tyrannical bullshit?

Is it a matter of keeping obsolete technology for shady dealings? Is the answer always Linux? Should I just trust in the sheer incompetence of the Australian government?

Cellphones are all hopelessly compromised. Off the shelf phones can't be secured against threats like this. There's a startling lack of detail to go off of, but in general you want to be using end to end encryption on devices that you have complete control over without relying on third party services for privacy. So Whatsapp on your phone is an easy target and it's surely what they have in mind, but if you use XMPP+OTR on your Linux laptop and tether it to your phone then that's well beyond the reach of an Australian government order. The flip side is that these more resilient technologies are less popular and easier for the state to block without protest.

Phones have some locked up chain of trust on their SoC that you can't in any way modify without destroying the phone completely and irreversibly. That chain of trust eventually leads to firmware and google stallionery that boots linux and then android, which is just more google stallionery. Some phones probably have built in hardware that has its own little processor or so, so they can do basic stuff even when the phone is off and android (or whatever OS you use) isn't even running. Even using custom stuff like cyanogen, lineage etc aren't safe from the SoC that runs them, so you can never be sure.

The same problem with desktop and laptop computers, all the ones with intel CPUs have IME, and AMD ones have some equivalent things. It's been trendy to add separate processors to processors that do stuff like signing and checking firmware and CPU microcode and manages stuff, and these have network access too - you don't even need to boot your OS they can do stuff anyway.

Trying to circumvent these is like trying to think about the pink elephant without using your brain or body. You are fucked. Of course governments don't have infinite resources so with certain levels of preparedness, you can get lucky, probably.

VG278Q and AOC G2460PG are in similar price ranges and I used both. I liked the colors on them compared to Benq which I always thought were extremely washed out, if you end up going with the ASUS there is a color profile you can find on google which makes it shine. The switch is worth it for any FPS, if you need a monitor for color work you are still better off with an IPS though

Haven't had a computer for years mainly used my iphone or shitty kobo and someone else's laptop when ive needed to type out anything decent..

Now I want to get one and dunno whether to buy one of these refurbs or not.

I don't even really know what one to get as there are so many.

I want to start messing about making music and Im planning on getting some decs to use with it..So im guessing im going to need a decent sound card ??

other than that it will just be used for general internet browsing and using word/pdf documents maybe watching films so maybe something for a hdmi port (but saying ive have a amazon stick with kodi and netflix)

Dont think there is much else I need..would be nice to be able to play some new low spec games but Ill hardly play them any way.

The most I want to pay is like £300 really

ive seen this for £329

If you don't mind looking like an accountant, have a look on eBay for refurbished ThinkPads. You should be able to find a decent one for under £200, easily. Seeing as you mentioned wanting to get into music, try to find one with the highest amount of RAM that you can find, you'll thank me later when your DAW isn't hanging like a bitch.

As for sound cards, the ones built into laptops are almost invariably shite across the board. Have a look at the FocusRite Scarlett range of USB audio interfaces, I've owned one in the past and they're nice pieces of kit. Stay away from old Tascam stuff like the US-122; cheap as shit these days but the drivers are ancient and mine would BSOD my computer all the damn time.

Don't buy from Currys, they're a bunch of rip-off merchants who rely on the public's ignorance of tech specs to flog nasty plasticky rubbish. Their godawful adverts boil my piss, too.

If you can buy locally, like in hte US there is craigslist. refurbished from non-manufacturers stores, sites, ebay as well could be simply an opened box.

Maybe used for a while maybe and people realize it was not enough for what they needed it for. Or incompatable for their needs. Third party from people,
coule get a beyond excellent deal. Here is one, my room mate moved and left
a laptop, I don't know what to do with it. $20. Reality, worth $1,2000?

Avoid Behringer interfaces too. They're shit and their preamps suck and the USB mixers never work.

I'd also highly recommend the Presonus Audiobox. I've had it actually work on AV Linux the literal second I plugged it in. It took probably 20 minutes on Windows 7 to get working but Linux worked instantly with Mixbus and Ardour. Speaking of which, Ardour is my favorite DAW. It is set up more for people who don't have an engineer sitting at a desk while they perform or whatever. If you got to track shit and play at the same time, Ardour is the best imo. AV Linux also supports lots of cool freeware stuff that isn't shit like Hydrogen, Ardour, Musescore, and a CD burning thing that I can't remember the name to but it pretty simple decent. It also rarely crashes. And when it does, it is only program crashes. When Reaper crashes on Windows, it takes out everything and bluescreens with various errors. I had maybe 3-4 crash to desktop with AV Linux in 2 years of use. It also ships with a fucking mountain of plugins already built in and working for Ardour which is very nice. Reaper comes with like nothing comparatively.

I'd go back to AV Linux if it wasn't for my video editing on Windows and my gaymes.

Also, don't use the default 3.5mm jacks for anything. USB, Thunderbolt, or Firewire for audio. Don't use anything else for audio. Seriously, soundcards are more for surround sound and people just wasting money. I've done super high quality audio production for a few years now and never once needed a soundcard. Save that money and buy yourself a nice microphone. SM58 is a good start for vocals. SM57 for a jack of all trades mic. And a large diaphragm condenser mic for when you need one. Use samples for drums unless you are really prepared to spend lots of money. I spent well over 1k to get "studio quality" drums tracked into a DAW. And that is just mics, cables, and stands. EZ Drummer is like 140 dollars. You won't even get a good pair of overheads and their stands/cables for that. Also, an 8 channel interface or more is best. I'm using 15 out of 18 available channels atm to track drums.

I've been trying to follow a guide to be able to access the darkness as safely as possible I pulled from this board a while ago
I figure what id do is get tails running on a usb drive
but I guess its not very compatible with newer Mac models
so even though I can make a bottle disk my computer won't recognize it when I go into the Mac safe mode or whatever to boot it

The most bullet proof advice is to write the image either on a non-Mac PC or a Virtualbox/VMWare/Parallels VM. Try recent Youtube videos if old or undated guides are letting you down. If you press option when you boot and don't see an option for Tails/Windows, the Tails image has not been written correctly.

In addition to just working, having a dedicated Tails machine(s) is a best practice.

Wouldn't it just be easier to buy a laptop or old desktop at a pawnshop, run off usb drive and drive to a city and use wifi either free or stolen then destroy the usb?

Isn't tor completely compromised now?

Not in general, no. That's the direction Apple is going though.

That's what random nobodies keep saying. If there were credible reasons to believe it though, the loudest voices would offer evidence and reasoned argument which you probably haven't seen.

Good riddance.
Install jdownloader and be done with it. Works pretty much everywhere, including mega.
