I'm at work on a linux machine.

I installed the distro myself on my work laptop. I'm cool with IT and they know about it.

So I don't think there's any company sniffing stuff on my laptop.

Now, my laptop has a VNC connection with my home computer.

I'm actually at work right now typing this from my home computer.

Can my company somehow log all this?

Or is it that my company only sees VNC noise without knowing what I'm actually doing?

I know nothing about, or have not used a VNC, but you should be able to alter setting to use port 80 or port 443. Those are usually open. If a different port is
set by default for your VNC, which is likely, any port can be used for any service
if you can tell it to. Or use a helper-program, etc, to help make that happen.

Cool video. Used to work with a guy, well we would talk, he had his own ISP he started; for many years. Best game in town. For a small dependable ISP.

A company not to name, he wanted to move on to other things, so he sold it. He signed papers, had no legal representation, (which he should have) but kinda a trustworthy person. They used their powers to not only take his business for nothing in return, but he owed the corporation tens of thousands in the end.

Seems windows 10 had similiar issues, https://www.extremetech.com/extreme/209208-windows-10s-new-wifi-sense-shares-your-wifi-password-with-facebook-outlook-and-skype-contacts.
I stick with win7 pro.
10 is too busy. Reinstall a fresh 10 by default, discard most if not all manufacturer built in 'helper software.' Like stuff that you can contact say Dell for tech support. Automatic manufacturer software updates. Just keep things to windows 10, and favorite software.
When reinstalling, do things manually. Let me choose my own settings. Then keep
digging. Again, it has too much going on. I turn off cortana, or whatever right away.

My Sandisk SSDPlus 240GB trash plastic has gone to shit after just 7 months of use. I can still boot into Windows7 on an ancient PC but it is excruciatingly slow. I can still copy files at much slower speeds than originally but I managed to back up my data to a USB stick. What tf is going on, anyone has experience with these stupid SSDs? I had a WD Caviar Black HDD that lasted me for 7 years in a PC that was hit numerous times. I thought SSDs are supposed to be even more resilient because they have no moving parts. I'm so pissed. Is there anyway to make this SSD work again or should I should I backup everything and take a hammer to it? It basically freezes for one or two literal minutes at a time and then starts working again and so on. I tried that weird method of letting it on while in BIOS with only power plug connected to the SSD but obviously that didn't work. Could this be because of multiple power outages and hard resets this computer has experienced in the last months while ON?



Also we need to bring back lead based solder immediately.

Always on doesn't necessarilly mean failure. Aside from ssds I have had HDs
working for years nearly 24/7. And still do work correctly. Yes one needs a bit of space for left, for whatever purposes. They kinda do that anyway.

I find the arguments against WD interesting, because I've only ever had WD hard drives since my first PC that wasn't a family PC, 15 years ago. None of my hard drives have failed to date! All 4 are still strong, even though I spend so much time downloading games, anime, music, ect.
Personal experiences mean so little though!

Some drive manufacturers have put out versions that just plain fail.

Too many variables of how and why a hd may be deemed the point of failure.

A HD may come with windows installed from whatever computer manufacturer that fail consistently.

But the drive may be fine. I find that repair partitions/drives fail to restore the system and people and computer manufacturers may blame the hard drive.

I think the added software;

The diagnostics, 'keep you system and drivers updated, contact help center, etc, software is often the failure.

I just zero out drives that have these extras. These installed helper applications and extras are basically useless IMO. And as well are the point of failure of the operating system. I have done many systems
that the software often has common theme. I have asked, does this have a restore partition, yes, but it
didn't work. Trial version of whatever, anti-virus, yea.

So if in warranty, the HD is replaced, zeroed out, called refurbished and working correctly. Then often gets moved to computer chain stores as 'refurbished and you can get a good drive for a lot less $$.

Plus a warranty. Unless stated otherwise.

External drives, just wipe the drive along with whatever that is on the drive. It's a hard drive.

Computer manufacturers drives with the restore partitions and extras. I say just wipe the drive by default. Reinstall windows. Install drivers enough to get windows connected to the internet if needed. Get whatever updates and wanted optional drivers updates through windows update, and you should have a reliable
stable working system.

--
If one were to scan for proxy servers, like proxy-hunter one would scan IP blocks. For ftp services, usenet services, whatever.

Open services, sometimes people leave these services open to test server load. Kind of a brilliant idea, to see how things work and fail. Security checks. Load balancing I would guess.

People get mad that their server they are working on, gets slammed. Well, that is the test.
-
One can make any port use any service. Around 56,000 port?s

In the US, port 80 is generally unencrypted web servers. As well, port 443 is almost always encrypted. SSL/TLS.
Many countries use port 3128 for web services..

Just messing around with ideas.

Whats the difference of a regular power outlet compared to a power bank battery in terms of electrical waves/radiation being emitted. The battery should emitt less of those "waves" riGht?

Nope, It probably uses harsher square waves.

Besides, outside of young cunts who can still hear high frequency whine, this sensitivity is not a real thing.

Also most computer monitors now draw straight DC from a brick.

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.

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.

Really.

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.

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.

SD cards are not doing a lot of this and their write endurance is relatively low.
They do wear leveling, not overprovisioning. They don't have spare blocks, at least nothing like the 7%-15% an SSD does, they just try to preserve the ones they have.
