Finally making the switch and putting Ubuntu onto a mini-notebook that I have. I chose it after doing some research and learning that it is the most user friendly.

I chose the "Desktop" version. It will work on my laptop, right?

They both basically do the same thing but Albeton is a lot more work to play with and not everyone wants to take that much extra time when FL is not complicated it's just time consuming. It took me almost 2 years to get where I am. I didn't know for at least a month that I could hit the keyboard and make things.

I have an album that i would only rarely actually want to listen to and don't want the songs to come up unless specifically selected.

personal advice, take it to the police. Ask what your options are. If you can't because of shit on your pc you SHOULDN'T HAVE well see what the blackmailers want.
aside from that, you can always jump IP's by getting another internet provider

>>40546307
just let them flow like normal auto updates. its easier. Since you don't know anything anon, its better to play around and not take it seriously, you will only fuck your phone over. Depending on what OS it has at the moment depends on how stable it is. If it's Kitkat...I'm sorry. That OS is a piece of shit.

>>40546380
call Apple. No seriously.

>>40546476
yeah, follow the instructions. Like I said, W8, use FL9.Window's 7, try 11 and see if it works. Don't ask me why, I've been trying to get shit to work. Last time I tried FL11, It bugged, so I went to 10.0.9 (i think it was). So see what happened. You might get wonky audio but that can be fixed with playing with settings.

It was the reverse for me, I found FL to be really cluttered and unintuitive especially when making beats. Maybe its because I started on Ableton so thats how I "wired" myself when working with DAWs

Probably not

1:yeah I suppose, everyone tells me they all start at FL and goto Albeton later as like a learning tool. My computer has to worth like almost 2k or more with how many plugins, movies, music I've gotten over the years.

2:IDK jack about blue-rays. Everyone seems to love them and they are going down in price at least. That's a plus. If anything just get a ps3/4 and go from there.

they are most likely idiots that don't know jack shit. It's most likely the crack file. It's built very close to a trojan. It's not. I have plenty of friends who use FL and know it's not. Don't worry anon, they are retarded on the bay. A lot of them are.

I am the 2nd main uploader of the sims complete collection. I get people asking how to install it all the time. I leave a read me in it and explain EXACTLY how to install it. I even left in the comment section what the hell to do and they are still fuckwads.

>>40546776
they can't prove you are or not. They would have to have some serious proof. Back up your shit and then take the rest there. Just clean up your browser, cleanup your torrents.
Torrenting itself is not illegal. torrenting is for the need of big files.

OK example:

I was talking to my dad about this today. I was thinking of ripping my real windows 7 starter disk to my dad. I was going to rip, turn it into an ISO, then make a torrent, then send it too him on facebook. NOW because it's from 1 person to another not a bunch of people, then it's not "stealing" like everyone wants to believe. It's more or less making a copy for PERSONAL USE and not resale or anything, The police cannot arrest you for torrenting itself. The content yes. but they have to have REAL proof of you torrenting illegal movies. For all they know you could of borrowed the movie, or gotten it from red box. ripped it yourself and kept a copy. Now are you selling it? no. Are you torrenting it yourself? most likely not. see the point? They can't say anything to you that they don't know. It would be like blaming someone for a murder who had an alibi.

I don't know if this helped or not but I tried.

This might more go in the programming general or whatever, but I think it's pretty dumb to ask this, being a programming noob in general.

If I want to release something like a standalone command line utility for all platforms, for Linux or Mac OSX, how would I go about doing that?

In Windows, you can provide a .exe and if it's static, everyone can run it as a command line tool with no problems in terms of dependencies, end of story.

For Mac OSX, do I use a .dmg to distribute something like that? What about Linux? tar.bz? Are they really standalone?

Upgrade path for a faggot with a AM3 (non-plus) motherboard.

Currently my system is:
955BE @ 3.6GHz (c2 stepping, awful overclockers.)
8GB of DDR3-1333 corsair cheapo ram.
MSI Radeon R9 270 gaming.

My choices seem to be:
Dump a 1090t on my current motherboard.
8350 and an AM3+ motherboard.
Core i5 4670k and a 1150 motherboard.

Obviously, the 1090t is the cheapest option, but will give the smallest boost in performance compared to my existing Deneb.

The Intel CPU and motherboard will set me back a few quid and while not a fanboy, I do have a slight soft spot towards AMD due to having been buggered by intel & Netburst in the past.

Advice?

The only features I'd really need are like SATA and USB 3.0 along w/ all the normal stuff like audio ports etc that pretty much all modern z87's have.

You should definitely get the i5 4670k. Intel progresses every two years, unlike AMD. AMD just adds more cores to their processors to compensate for the shitty architecture. Compare the i5 4670k to the 1090t on AnandTech Bench and be amazed.

Just swapped the mechanical hdd in my laptop for an SSD, currently installing arch.

It's got an i5(haswell series, can't recall the exact model this second) 1.6ghz - 2.6ghz

Is adding another 4gig ram going to amount to anymore speed inside arch?

So, my PC at work has only an HDMI port and a VGA port, and I'm not allowed to modify the hardware.

displaylink adapter. I have a usb monitor that has one built in, it's really good.

I was wondering if someone could give me some ballparks on some PC parts my sister wants to move. I'd post her speccy but when she sent it to me she decided to do it by taking a picture of her screen with her phone and it's blurry, barely readable shit:

>Intel Celeron G540 2.5GHz
~£50?

>4GB DDR3 RAM
~£10

>ASRock B75 Pro-3 M
£50+, seems like a decent board.

>ACER P205H 20 inch LCD monitor
Couldn't find anyone selling one. They still sell for 100 or so quid new so I was thinking somewhere in the region of 80 quid. She barely uses it, it's good as new.

>Samsung SSD 830, 119GB
~£50

How to backports SDL2_image on Wheezy? There are no binaries for download and for some reason backports can't find it.

Honestly it depends on how high you want your framerate. I think the 780 with the i5 will handle anything you throw at it for the next 5 years, but if you want that extra couple FPS go for the i7. I wouldn't get the 780 ti, I would just get the i7 and the 780. I use an AMD FX6300 with a GTX 760 and my framerate is where I want it to be.

>a lot of those were on a specific MPAA honeypot indexer that is now no longer functioning, so I would ignore them at this point, since no one saved the passwords
Well there are tons of releases that are passworded every hour. There are plenty of 22-50GB releases which I suspect are bluray rips. They are also named with hashes which implies there is a database somewhere with correct release name and password.
>how do you find the req id list? is there a request site?
It's all on irc. I use:

It works for the normal sd, 720p and 1080p re encodes. Just paste the req id into binsearch or use the links.

Mint is better. Mageia includes a stupid as fuck "Mageia Control Center" that is slow to load and overly complicated. It's one of the worst distros out there because of all the custom bloatware it includes.

>>40558559
depends on what you are doing, freebsd has the best support overall. i'm really not the person to ask though, my only bsd experience is freenas.

>>40558564
it is, but the code is different enough that they each have their own packages. ubuntu and debian use separate repositories with their own package managers. i've never personally tried mint debian, but i've heard good things about it.

>>40558612
regular backups either to an external hdd or over the network to a nas. raid provides redundancy, so you're server won't just go down in the middle of the night, but if something fucks up your data like malware, accidental deletion, or even memory errors or corruption, it's just mirrored in the array or zpool. in it we have a 3-2-1 rule for mission critical backups- make 3 backups, on 2 different types of media, and store one offsite. you don't have to get that crazy with it at home though, i personally keep my nas backed up to a 3tb usb drive.
>>
>>40558656
Just a quick note to anybody who is considering doing a hackintosh: Absolutely do not use iAtkos, iDeneb, Leohazard, or any of the "precooked" ISOs. They're basically packed with a ton of hacks made that do way more harm than good to make their installation "one size fits all". What you want to use is myHack, which is a utility for installing a raw copy of OS X. Also use Multibeast to get your hardware working post-installation.
