I'm trying to connect to Xbox Live so I can run Netflix through my shitbox but as usual it's struggling to do something as simple as that. Trying to detect wifi network, it sees wifi, but can't connect to internet. Did all the troubleshooting steps on their site, didn't help. Reset router, reset saved wifi network, reset network to default settings on modem and xbox, no other wifi shit to interfere, router is like 5 feet from box. What the FUCK am I doing wrong?

I have bought some PNP transistors. I had this theory that because NPN transistors are normally open until you apply a positive current to the "base", that PNP transistors would be normally closed until you applied current to the "base. OH BOY I WAS WRONG!

This leads into my question. I want a device that will stay in a closed state until I apply current to a base (or equivalent). I don't want to use relays for this because they require 12v to run and I already have another relay in my circuit (so no no to more relays). Instead I want a hacky chad solution to my problem. I would prefer to stick to something that is solid state, which won't add too much resistance to my first relay.

PNP transistors and NPN transistors are very simple devices. They work the same, except one requires a ground at the base, while the other requires a positive voltage. What you want is a NOT gate, here is a simple one using NPN transistors.

The idea is, the input transistor draws all the power away from the secondary transistor to stop the secondary transistor from conducting.

The Amplifier is similar, except it uses a PNP transistor as the secondary, instead of an NPN.

I bought a couple of non-working mid-2007 apple macs for £20 thinking oh I'll just fix these up and sell them on.

Then I realised I have no idea what I'm doing.

I opened the fuckers up to realise whoever had them first took the hard drives out. No problem, I've got some spares I can replace in. I put a single partition on the drive. I boot an OS X 10.6 install disk and I get this error.

No idea why, it's an apple mac and it's an OS X. I feel it should just go ahead and install to the drive. Can anyone give me any pointers?

I’ve been out of the loop and without a desktop for about 5-6 years, and I’m expecting a windfall in the coming months. I’m done dabbling with os modding, multibooting, hardware kajiggery (except ram, drives), etc. and just want to game and Internet with the occasional graphic design and a/v editing dabbles.

What do y’all recommend in the $500-1500 (usd) range?

Honestly it's been over a decade since I fucked with anything computer or programming related. Thing is I have a lot of time on my hands because I'm sort of disabled and out of work atm so I have some time to dick around and learn.

I have a couple questions about what it takes to set up a website through the Tor network. First I'm assuming the only way to be properly secure I would have to physically keep the server in my possession right? Or are there web hosting services out there that are safe to run a tor site through? As far as coding for a website are there some good resources online you could point me to for coding and web server configuration? I don't remember anything.

Depends how many people you want to host and what you want to do with it. The simplest way is just to buy a raspberry pi and setup linux with apache and tor.

There are tons of tutorials on how to set up a tor hidden service on an RPi.

Of course don't do anything (too) illegal or you will get vanned. And don't expect to be able to serve many users (like 10 max I guess).

Assuming you're still checking this thread.

When you say "a lot of time" how much exactly? Because you can hack together a hidden website in a day but it will be a leaky cardboard siv held together with unrealistic expectations.

Start by learning how to make a secure website on the "real" internets then learn how the tor network works. Then learn how people and governments have hacked tor sites in the past. Then like others said, don't do anything shady because you've probably fucked up along the way at some point.

Has anyone else come to this phenomenon ?

So i have this lenovo x220 laptop. Amazing machine... Once it was in my car and was left on the floor in the back seat. When i took the pc from the car it was fine but 20 min later pink, green etc colors just started flashing like graphix failure. After that dident post. Removed ram and got it to post 1 time with no beeps and than shut down. Not even fan went on. So i took it apart and but it back together about 3 times (I knew it cant be possible that this pc dies) And am now writing this post from the same pc. No joke. Everything has been fine.

At my parents house there is this lenovo Think Centre D30 in my room. Everything was still like a pc seting should be (screen, mouse etc) but i knew that the pc wont post because of power suply failure (only fans started working for 3-4 sec no post).And i tried to start this pc for 1 year, about 1-2 attemps per month when i was there. And after 1 year and few months this pc is working fine.

Nikon D3100 camera was in a car accident. It was 1/2 under water. When i took it from the car the display had mouisture under it and water was everywhere. No post after 2 weeks of no battery...and than suddenly 6 months later the screen flickered for 3 sec and it was up. Everything ok except AF on lens and battery (Lifetime about 40 min)

Maybe its just me i dont knw.

Asada. I've been out of the computer game for a while, don't ask, and I'm not as smart as I used to be. How do I theme my comp to dankness? Like just colors and mostly icons? I don't want to download each icon, I don't want to pay $3.99 for a theme without ads, I know there's a way. Is it WinRemix or what do I do?

tl;dr How do make my Desktop look cool?

I just wish the regular window managers would integrate tiling as a feature. Fucking WINDOWS is better at it than most of the shit on linux with its primitive quadrant snapping.

First of all, need hotkeys for splitting windows side by side like Windows has. Then need a modifier key that'll resize two windows that are touching at the same time.

AND THAT'S ALL YOU NEED FOR A BASIC TILING WINDOW MANAGER. FUCK.

I actually really like the shelltile gnome extension. It doesn't have hotkeys so you'd probably hate it, but the gui management is pretty slick.

The separators drag like you'd expect them to. But what stands out the most is that the tiled windows are handled like a single window in all the expose effects and whatnot. So when you expose you get a view of all your tile layers, which is really handy.

It's changed how I interact with gnomeshell. I barely use virtual desktops anymore. I just throw together a tile layer and it gets handled right alongside my floating windows.

I've scanned my system fully with Malwarebytes and Eset using a trial version, but it comes out clean. Also tried rkill, nothing.

BUT. I'm suspicious that somethings there, since every so often the program I'm currently using (most often during switching between different windows) will go out of focus, and I can't click on or use anything until I tab into it again. There's no extra stuff in the tab menu though. Should I just go for safe and reformat or is there anything else I can do to check? Tried pressing ALT+F4 when it unfocused, but it didn't return open software to active, only alt+tab works.

Try malwarebytyes Rootkit killer. Or many of the others. Although it could come down to you not having patched your likely Intel computer (hah, AMD is only susceptible to Spectre v2 and only certain chips). Meltdown and Scepter 1 and 2 install themselves in the CPU, forever. So yeah, if you can't figure it out, format and find your firmware updates for your bios for these. If you have a good amd chip, say a FX8350 or a FX9350 or whatever is even more powerful than the FX-9350, you only have to be slightly worried about Sceptre v2. I got firmware updates for AMD through Linux Mint 17.3 for Sceptre v2.

Maybe make a thumb drive of a Linux version you want, I recommend Boot-Repair OS, it comes with a bunch of forensic and analytics tools, and see how things behave there, and use rkhunter, chkrootkit.. if the windows rootkit apps find nothing, too, could be unfortunate hardware failure somewhere, doing a memtest is a good idea too, a mem stick that starts acting up can cause the weirdest things.

Forgot to get back to the thread, I nuked the windows install and went back to linux already. Would have had to switch in 2020 when Windows 7 security updates stop anyway, and I never would have gotten away from that feeling of knowing something could be there, even if I never found anything.

But this thing about Meltdown/Spectre installing on the CPU, have you read something I haven't? Those were kinda why I was extra suspicious, but they don't really install themselves on the CPU though, they are security holes that are already there and can be abused, correct? How would you install something inherent to the design of the CPU itself?

I need some help /tech/. I've been fucking up my life recently, I'm addicted to pornography and the internet in general and I used to be able to manage it but it's gotten to the point where I'm fucking around online so much it's starting to interfere with the rest of my life. I'm in therapy to help curb some of my addictive behaviors, but therapy takes time and I still need to use a computer for school/work and I need ways to keep myself from getting tempted into going down a porn hole.
Can anyone recommend some good software or a browser addon that would block specific websites, preferably with use of a custom password? I figure the more blocks I have to jump over to get to my distractions the more a chance I have to not succumbing. This isn't a nofap thing or anything self righteous like that, I'm literally just bad at managing my indulgences. Can anyone help a terminally weak willed bro out?

Look up 'public dns servers.' Add to preferred and alternate dns servers that you are looking for. Some will block certain things. Advertising, popups, adult material.

An ISP can keep logs of peoples websites they visit. Use a public server, that claims to keep no logs is preferable. Even if one has nothing to hide, the data is being collected and sold.
