Did you try taking out the CPU and blowing into the pins before plugging it back in?

I do not buy that. Tools are to make an operating function like one intends.

In the end, a cmos. One could run an operating system , from less than one MB from a floppy disk. I assume. Even 64 kilobytes. A simple chip.

Even our, or the US uses floppies to control our defenses with. I think it is difficult but fail-safe.

Essentially cmos, or a chip, is actually a functional operation system in its-self. It has all the information to build an operating system from. If that is the intention. As well, a simple
simple code, could build a chip.

You are program it to do something simple, and direct how you would like it to do.

Surveillance Hard Drives

Apologies if this is a dumb question, but are there reasons for someone to buy a surveillance hard drive, aside from like, surveillance purposes?

I've done a little reading and it's not really clear to me. My partner just bought one and I'm a little nervous that he's going to use it to spy on me. I'm just wondering if there are other, plausible reasons he would purchase that particular type of hard drive.

He does a lot of gaming. He has described his set-up as having some sort of a mirror system to protect against data loss in case one hard drive goes down. His computer is running pretty much 24/7.

Each thing that I've read mentions something about surveillance video storage. I will ask him directly the next time I see him, but I just want to know if I'm over-reacting before I do. I had a previous partner record me without my knowing so just seeing the word "surveillance" in this context makes me nervous.

Pic is what he bought. Thanks for any info.

>but are there reasons for someone to buy a surveillance hard drive,

There is not any realistic 'decent' hard drives meant for watching peoples activity.

As person said, things, names may have meanings that may seem, troublesome.

'surveillance' may seem sound distressful. But it surely in its-self of the product is benign.
There are hard drives that contain pre-installed software. This would be one.

If he has a better plan, he would simply wipe the per-installed software, and install what he likes.
A simple example, people game, and are serious, people game for years and
get to levels that take months years, and if their HD goes out, all that effort is
gone. So simply mirroring their drive, they have a backup.

That is what this Hd seems to do. (which one could spend less, to do the same thing.)

Reality, some people sell their achievements in online gaming for thousands of dollars.


Some software will try to secure online gaming, the 'Surveillance, aspect' I assume is software an the hard-drive, pre-installed; trying to keep peoples online gaming data intact if things go south. A backup.

Gamers are kinda, not weird, but generally know their stuff. It is kinda a different world in computing.

wondering if firmware, is on the Hard drive?

Seems if the contentious activity, so the hard drives would be not identical. In comparison to just a random hard drive picked up. Like this, I have gotten WD external or whatever hard drives. The first thing I would do is wipe their default

If they're cheaper than the NAS hard drives buy them and use them in your NAS.
The main difference is gonna be amount of cache and caching behavior.

The surveillance HDs are optimized for constant writing over reading or random access.

They did this because too many addons could be a potential security risk, having them signed helps ensure the stability and security of the program and your system. Every now and then most programs go off or reinvent themselves

Firefox is likely the most observed browser in it's code, looking for

My roommate, a computer-savvy fellow, turned his computer on today only to find this shit installed, with a Firefox Add-on too. It doesn't appear to be a virus, but we're both baffled at how this got there. He hasn't installed anything in years, so it can't be from a missed bundled installed or something.

Internet searches yielded nothing, so I come to you /tech/. Any idea how this shit got on his computer?

So I'm trying to rip episodes of The Last Drive-In off Shudder since with volatile digital rights agreements these shows will be gone forever at some point (probably within a year of airing) so I'm trying to rip the episodes to save and it seems like it ripped the video file correctly based on the file size, the length, dimensions, bitrate, and framerate, but I've tried the file in VLC, MPC-HC, and PotPlayer and the seeker will move like it's playing but it just shows blank video and no audio plays.

Any ideas how to repair the file so that it plays?

How to rip directly from a stream is almost always a closely guarded secret. If a commercial video platform knew how people were doing it, they would break the method. Your best bet is either capturing the video or looking for a forum where you can make scene requests.

The damndest thing is that both Jaksta and Video Download Helper both grab like a 1GB mp4 file with what seems to be the correct video dimensions and running time, but it just doesn't play any video or audio like it was running on some weird codec. I was hoping this was something I could repair through handbrake or whatever but I guess not.

Oh well, I guess I'll just hope someone else figured this out and just download the series in the future once it's been removed so I have a digital backup. I guess I could ghetto screen record it but the file size would likely come out to like 5 gigs or some retarded shit.

How do I clean this?
My ducting system is totally clogged with resin, probably have to replace that.
GPU overheated and fried (see clogged ducting system)
Ram probably has to be thrown out, you can see the resin on it

Motherboard seems fine but probably has resin is there a safe way to clean resin off my motherboard?

Get high in romt of people and they never noticed.Except for putting hash in a gig, as an experement to how much to gethigh and with a filter, it worked empigh, but dude kept saying loudly, somebody's smoking pot. As the smoke streamed off the hash chunks.

If anyone knows what software I need to bypass this system that would be greatly appreciated. I have already tried flashing a new ROM onto it, but even that's blocked by the FRP.
