I want to make a classifieds site crawler that would find products with a certain name under a certain price and show them on a page. I understand that I need to fish out the info from HTML, but how would I handle multiple page listings and searching for keywords in product descriptions, the ones that can only be seen in the detailed product view, not the list?
Where do I start?
I bought a Western digital My Book, problem is that it won't go to sleep if I close my laptop lid. I used the WD software that it comes with and set the sleep timer to 10 minutes, but even then the HDD doesn't go in stand-by mode. Could you help me? I'm on Win 8.1, I also tried to uninstall the WD softwares but nothing

Currently having some problems with my desktop. its an old 2008 hp prebuilt with a new power supply and video card but recently it just shut off after a minute or so of distorted image and every time I try to power it back on it beeped twice, 1 short and 1 long which supposedly indicates a memory problem so I reseated all the ram, tried new ram, and reseated the cpu all without luck. anyone have any ideas? Im dreading the idea of having to replace the motherboard
ok, the situation is as following
i was thinking about using a barebone as my homeserver, which would also at the same time act as a router
simple arch machine, will run git & mailserver & NAS, but also creating a subnet from an existing network and the PCIe card will create a Wlan
now, I assumed, this thing cant run one AC network and one N one, like a usual router could. So I was wondering, if AC is backwards compatible or if 'll really have to use N (since my phone doesn't have AC) or will have to buy a real access point or router
I need a free webhost to upload a lot of small files. After that I want them to be available under mydomain.somefreedomain.com/file.extension so people can download them without problems
it's a one time deal and files take like 50MB
>802.11ac is backwards compatible with 802.11n
>802.11ac falls back to 802.11n to serve clients that don’t support 802.11ac. This works very similarly to how 802.11n falls back to serve 802.11b/g and 802.11a clients today. Dual-band APs like the MR34 will seamlessly serve 802.11ac and 802.11a/n clients in the 5 GHz band, and 802.11b/g/n in the 2.4 GHz band. Backwards compatibility is a key point since nearly all deployments will be dual-band and therefore will need to support 802.11n for years to come.
have you guys ever had trouble with a folder that will not be deleted despite your best efforts?
I've tried removing this folder named 'AhCBFJnAYJ'. I have no idea how it got on there. I've tried using bleachbit and 'sudo rm -rf AhCBFJnAYJ/'. Nothing seems to work.
I put it in the trash bin hoping that I could empty it, but that's not working either. I'll try to list its contents but any command I run on it hangs.
I've even tried disabled any immutable flags on it, but still nothing.
In use Textra for my SMS app. But it won't let me send screenshots as the file is too big. Is there a way to increase this limit or can someone suggest another app which is not ugly and has iOS emojis and does not have this problem.
will this ssd work with this m.2 slot?:
my concern is that ssd has like 3 pins and mobo has like a to pin m.2 setup, or is it universal?
mobo: GA-Z97X-Gaming 3
ssd: SSD Intel 535 M.2 360GB SATA3, MLC, 540/490MBs, 80mm
Also wtf is this http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4966#sp
>(M.2, SATA Express, and SATA3 4/5 connectors can only be used one at a time. The SATA3 4/5 connectors will become unavailable when an M.2 SSD is installed.)
Anybody know if it's possible to set up an external GPU if my laptop only has VGA and HDMI ports? I have an Lenovo ideapad y510p which played games great until the graphics card (NVIDIA GeForce 755m) died and I'm looking to get my PC back to similar performance.
I've attached a pic of my system specs
how important is it for a hard drive to be secure? I ended up just taking out the cage that held it because it was a large bulky thing with an expansion bay for another hard drive and a disk drive and it made it annoying as hell to work on the computer but now my harddrive is just kind of dangling there
If I kiss my gf after she swallows am I cucking myself or what?
Not sure how to feel about it, I did it once and she said it made her happy.
I don't mind kissing my gf after she's gone down on me. The semen after-taste is actually pretty okay as long as I keep asparagus out of my diet.
I meant, I wouldn't drink a popcan of semen or anything, but the taste is pleasant enough for a sip every now and then.
WHY ARE MY TEMPS SO FUCKING HIGH RIGHT NOW? All I was running was a fucking youtube video! My computer doesn't even get this hot when I'm playing games!
ya, if you got connections, and most folk have more connections than they realize because pride keeps them from even considering going that route, but pride won't put food on the table and there's nothing wrong with asking for help when you need it
I'm still using a SATA II hard drive from 2008.
Should I upgrade it to a SATA III or just get an ssd instead?
Yes, anon but if you are young - you should suck it up and go back to school.
My friends mother who has worked in IT for over 20 years and worked for TYCO for over 15 years was let go and she gets turned down so many fucking times simply because she doesn't have a degree despite being more qualified than other applicants and being more capable.
So you are kind of at risk if you ever get a job and then are let go.
She struggled to find work for over 6 months.
I really might not be a problem for you, so if you like asparagus keep eating it unless you (or she) notice something off.
Not everyone can detect the taste/smell difference. Kind of bummed that I can, because I fucking love asparagus.
Dust and re apply thermal paste you asshole.
Take care of your processor if that's what you are complaining about.
I reapplied thermal paste to my cpu and my temps dropped significantly as well as removing dust.
Do both at same time.
I honestly don't think I've eaten asparagus in my life unless it was an ingredient of an unknown meal. Apparently fruits do keep your cum from tasting gross so maybe I'll stick to that. Not that she has complained.
I would appreciate a link to the best version of chromium and by best I mean the version that respects my freedom's the most.
I'm on chromium atm but I suspect it isn't respecting my freedoms because from what I can tell it is running flash.
I kiss my gf after she goes down on me - why? because she is a fucking champ and always does it with the most excellent performance AND if she desires to kiss me she fucking deserves.
it's like that movie larry crowne, where tom hanks gets let go from a supermarket after being passed over for promotion because he went in the navy instead of going to college, so he goes back to college. but only go back if you've got your head on straight and you know what you want to do with your degree, so you don't spend upwards of fifty to a hundred thousand bucks on an education that won't get you anything. I mean just because you need a college degree for shit doewn't automagically mean having a college degree lets you in the door
>I mean just because you need a college degree for shit doewn't automagically mean having a college degree lets you in the door
I completely agree with you - I dropped out of college and make a good living as a personal trainer now and I was studying gdesign but
if this anon could avoid being in the same situation as my friends mother each time she looks for a job I would just suck it up-but then I made my choice to drop out and create my ow path.
So I wanted to try out Mint from the Virtual Box but its been stuck on this screen for the past 30 minutes or so. Did I setup something wrong? Is there anything I can do about it?
I wanted to play ps3 on my pc screen because I only have 1 hdtv and it's for my ps4 and my old sdtv makes it impossible to see anything clearly. Would this cable be good enough or would it like get fried I'm worried about any potential fire hazards.
I use my PC primarily for displaying reference pictures for drawing. I hate the time it takes to load thumbnails. I built a new rig with an SSD with the hope that this would aid in eliminating the thumbnail loads. It helps but in 4K there are a lot of thumbnails to load and it's still annoying when going through thousands of images in a folder.
The order of the image files never change. Is there a way to cache the thumbnails so further reduce load times?
Where is this from? Someone made a thread about it on /v/ but neglected to mention the name.
I need a tablet purely for reading comics, because sometimes I want to sit downstairs to read them instead of being behind my pc. I was thinking about the amazon fire tablet, but apparently belgium can't buy one, even though the Uk,France and Germany can.
Any other tablets of similar price that are decent enough to read comics on?
I read comics all the time on my ipad mini -first generation.
Get a used/refurbished one for cheaper if you want but it's simply a pleasure to read on.
I think a new one is around $200 bucks. If you want something cheaper check out amazon's tablet that they sell that is $50.
You should ask on /r/ not /g/ but maybe an anon can help you. Post ir on /r/ as well if you haven't.
Your post might be spam desu though.
200 bucks is pretty steep for something I'll only even use for statis images, but I'll look into it anyway. Amazon's fire tablet is a no-go, as I said, because I can't find a single amazon site that ships one to Belgium.
Sure, anon. But it's a complete gamble if you decide to get some off brand android. $200 dollars or less if you get it used/refurbished etc is not bad for the assurance it won't let you down in my opinion.
Hope you find the right product !
I'm going to contact amazon about the fire tablet first though. FUcking ridiculous that I can't order when people +-30 km north of me can without a problem. As for android tablets, how's lenovo as a brand? they have some inexpensive ones on amazon.
I can't give you an opinion on lenovo but tablets are something you don't want to be 'cheap' on for lack of better word. The slow gui will be annoying to you.
Android tablets check this one out:
I don't have one but its suppose to be very solid/and stood the test of time (released 2013) and looks like you could get it around $145.
It takes me 7 mins to encode a three and a half min 4k video. How long would it take a i5 or i7?
In regards to this, would it be legal for me to get a copy of it from Play Asia, since it says ckeyonly and region free, and then use one of the ones listed in >>52515127's link? For reference, here is the link to it at their shop: http://www.play-asia.com/microsoft-windows-7-pro-oem-key-only/13/709gc7
How simple and nonfucked would it be to just switch my HDD to a new motherboard that already has the drivers for the GPU, but not the new motherboard's drivers?
Also, I uh kind of forgot to uninstall the previous motherboard's drivers.
6 C on a GPU is nothing, don't worry about it.
unless you mean you noticed a 6 C increase since relatively recently, in which case there's probably something inside your case, or the GPU fan is dying.
Let's say I have the URL for an image or video on 4chan (let's use the OP's webm as an example: http://i.4cdn.org/g/1453227975156.webm) Is there a simple way to find the post this image came from without scraping 4chan entirely?
Since this didn't seem to be answered, did you mean
1. playing back flash SWF videos
2. making vector-based cartoons, or
3. generally replacing flash period?
1. Gnash?? Irfanview has an ok Flash plugin.
2. Toonboom if you want to pay money. Check out Pencil for FOSS alternative.
3. Just develop in HTML5 from now on, god damn.
My graphics card is 60°C during idle and goes beyond 100°C at 100% load. It's really worrisome since it's going to be a lot hotter during summer. The fan is working and I also cleaned it from dust so what could be causing the high temperature? Is it possible that the thermal sensor could be damaged and report an incorrect reading? If so how do I use a thermometer or how do I check this?
I am intermediate in OOP, did few projects in Java and want to learn by committing to OpenSource projects on Github. How did you look for projects which are not TOO hard but not too easy? Any tips on github?

Is there a way to have my windows 10 desktop stay awake at all times but make it sleep the monitors and lock the screen. Want to keep my plex up and running when away but don't want my roomate snooping
So only 4 and 5 connectors become unavailable? everything else remain working?
Which is better for the longevity of my GPU:
1) It idling between 35C and 45C.
2) Having the fans on at about 850 RPM and it staying close to 35C?
Will the fans die before the GPU?
I've never actually killed a GPU before but I'm kinda curious at what temperates is it worth having the fan on to cool it and whatnot.
No GPU is going to die at such low temperatures and its lifespan won't be shortened by any significant amount so why would you worry about that
>at what temperates is it worth having the fan on to cool it and whatnot.
At high temperatures. 70C and up.
Anyone here good with context-free grammar? Is the action I showed allowed?
Yes this is /g/ related
I thought so, it's just in Linux here it seems there's no temperature where the fans automatically turn on so I have to keep an eye on it but it never goes above like 47C without the fans on. I didn't think it would be a problem. Thanks for the info.
it's in the power options on windows 8.1, i'm asuming they didn't change anything in 10

Why the fuck is the sound quality so bad on my Samsung Galaxy Alpha?
I upgraded from a fuckin iphone 4 and the last thing I expected was worse sound...
is the dac samsung uses shit or something? I fucking hate itunes so I'm not getting another iphone but I mainly use my phone for music so this galaxy is gonna have to go... It's not flagship but jesus this is inexcusable

I'm a pleb that makes some videos and streams as a hobby, I've just been partnered with Twitch and hope to make more monies from it to eventually phase out my minimum wage job.
Currently upgrading my PC, I'm looking at the CPUs and can't decide between i7-6700k or i5-6600k. I'm a poor Fag who needs to save money but is hyperthreading worth it?
For the video encoding you need to do for streaming it is, but you'll still get more bang for your buck out of a haswell chip, skylake prices are still way inflated compared to the performance gains.
I'm not so good with computers, could someone please help me, which one should I buy?

Mom's old PC is beyond repair, but the HDD is nice, so I decided to add to my PC. If I put this old HDD in the SATA port, it works perfectly, but then I'd need to deactivate the CD/DVD drive, cause I only have 2 SATA ports. Then I bought an external HD case for it, but it's not working. Most of the time it tells me to format, but the windows's disk manager fails to do it, and if I try to transfer a file around 20MB, it freezes or fails to transfer and the HDD disconnects, as if someone had unplugged the cables.
What is the best resource for learning Python or C++?

Bad timing, had to leave but if you're not here I guess someone else can help me. I changed fan speed to 100% but it had no impact on temperature, just caused the fan to make a lot of noise. I guess I need to replace the thermal paste?

Are there any free media players for windows that support bluray's picture-in-picture mechanic?
I have a movie that has a visual commentary on it and i can use mpc-hc to watch either the movie, or the commentary but not both at the same time like an actual bluray player would. Is it possible?
I need help from anyone with excel knowledge.
How would I go about randomizing 300 cars in a table based off their make and color, with the final list not having any repetitions? (a red car doesn't follow a red car, a ford doesnt follow a ford).
dude its not that hard
use cpubenchmark and videocardbenchmark to compare components
use pcpartpicker to put something together. they will even give you an average of what the system power draw will be when you choose a power supply ! its very simple and straight forward :)
why excel? if you need to fill a table use VBA with a random function (if there is one in VBA) and a simple greedy algorithm producing only the next car, out of a selection of all possible cars for that position (based on the front car)
i have a workaround for that.
in mpc-hc go to options then player. select open a new player for each media file.
open the bluray, then open the commentary, pause them.
in mpc-hc select view > on top > always. hit the 1 key to get rid of the window borders.
resize/move the commentary to your desired location. unpause both videos and hit alt+tab until the commentary window is above the bluray video.
I have a table of information, I just need it randomized. Looking into VBA now thanks anon.
I am afraid to connect my clean pc to my wifi after some dumb shit that happened last weekend.
My brother was having a hack-battle against other hackers this past weekend USING THE FUCKING HOME WIFI. Don't trust our wifi anymore(what's left of it) and I need to use my laptop.
Is there a way I can securely connect my laptop to the internet without using wifi or hotspot? Like a mobile data card I can get to connect to a port directly? Do they make those anymore?
When i push the power button to turn on my pc it starts for a few seconds then shuts off, after a few more seconds it starts up perfectly on its own. (this only happens after it's been unplugged or PSU has been shut off). What's causing this?
It's comments like this that need not to be said.
It's like everyone here is some type of elitist that thinks saying whatever arrogant statement mentally 1UP their ego making them feel like they are the smartest thig that came around here. Fuck.
you should be fine unless you run a vulnerable os with no protection. your dumbass bro on the other hand is likely to get the cop knock over doing shit from home instead of a hotspot

does g sync or free sync actually make a huge noticeable difference in smoothness? i haven't seen it in action because nobody has a demo of a gsync/freesync monitor in their shop.
good website hosting for bootstrap sites with backend support?
I think only pay for one ip from my isp and I was able to get another by plugging the modem into a switch. Then from the switch I have a router and a pc. The PC and the router are given public IP's and the pc gets around 90% packet loss when it leaves the network and the router works fine.
Does anyone know how I can fix the packet loss?

this is kind a shot in the dark, but does anyone have those webms/videos of the system administrator that was in his room smoking an e-cig/vapor machine with like 10 monitors around him?
The back story about him is that his wife and daughter died and all he does now is vape, do administration shit, and play on the puter. It was a sad/interesting story.
Do you care about upgrade paths or do you just want the best you can get right now? Are you willing to overclock? Do you have access to microcenter? Do you have any prefference when it comes to where the parts are for ? IE do you want them all from the same place or two places ? (Amazon and Newegg for example)
Here you go. You could buy a ssd later and another 8gb of ram.
I wouldn't worry on improving the upgradeability of this build since that would mean getting a Z97 mobo if you wanted to upgrade in the future to an OC-able CPU and you would also need to change the PSU for that (and you don't have budget for both). With this you can s till upgrade to a better CPU just not one OC.

This is important. I need a Free as in Freedom Alternative to Itunes so I can sync this old 4 I have without downloading bloat.
This is more gaming related than it is /g/ related, but I might as well ask. Some PC games have benchmarking modes, and the games that usually do often don't have an 'upper limit,' as in there is no FPS or resolution cap; it will only get better with time. But there are some games, even new ones, that have a cap on framerate and resolution, the latter being a strange thing to cap. Let's use Metal Gear Rising for this example, as it has a resolution cap of 1080p (without the use of a resolution hacking tool) and a framerate cap of 60FPS. With that in mind, would it be possible to use 'reverse benchmarks' where the goal would be to determine the absolute weakest hardware needed to run a game? How would one go about find out whether the game needs more CPU power than GPU power, or vice versa?
Where do you guys go to find deals on hardware? I need a new hard drive, but I don't want to check a dozen websites every day to find a good deal. Are there any sites that compile data and I could set up alerts for?

More expensive than this:
The cheaper one is the better choice because it has the newer generation of the processor right? Or am I missing something really obvious.
I also checked what kind of models dell is selling on their own site and they only have 6th gen i3s in their new cheapest xps 13s. Is that somehow a better choice than the 6th gen i5 in the previous link?
first time linux user, i did pic related and tried ubuntu without installing.
i have an external hdd that will not read on a windows os but western digital utilities recognizes theres a drive plugged in. someone mentioned a while back that i can try using it in linux as it will "see" the drive differenty.
i plugged in the drive and cant locate it. someone also mentioned gparted and grub2 iirc.
can i install these while still trying linux, or should i install it?
My mobo supports DDR2 533 mhz ram and I have a 800 mhz ram.
I am confused reading the wiki https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DDR2_SDRAM
What should i see in the POST screen that will tell me what speed is the ram running,like PC2...
I have i5-2500k and asus p8p67 pro rev 3.1 I want to upgrade my ram since its cheap now. It says max mem clock is 2200MHz if im not mistaken. So something like g.skill 2x4gb 2133MHz cl10 will suffice? It can oc to 2200 with that xmp thingy?
Yeah that will be totally fine, but you may as well save a few bucks and get 1600 ram instead if you're not doing anything resource heavy tasks. I doubt you'd notice the difference in speed and ram timings
So /g/, I've rooted my generic android 4.4 tablet using kingo root, and so far it's been working really weird; my battery has been draining a lot faster since I rooted it, the root sometimes gets undone, and apk's that I place in /system/app don't work as they should. This is not the first time I've rooted something and it's really bothering me, I don't know what to do to fix these things desu. Help?
retard here. alright i built a pc with an SSD and HHD. i decided to be a cheap nigger and use linux mint and i fucking hate. i have no idea how to use linux and gparted so i did the disconnect trick to install a pirated version of windows7 on the HDD. i need to format the SSD and mint the fuck off there so i can install windows 7 (and delete windows 7 off the HHD as well). i can plug the SSD back in and chose the windows 7 HHD at start up and use that to format the SSD yes? how the fuck do i do the format part

In movies you see the l337 hacker destroy his hard drives rather than deleting the data, and I know deleted data can be recovered. However, is it possible you could write a bunch of random bytes over a file and then delete it, and it couldn't be recovered?
