CH1: Intro

have you ever thought they call certain people 'terrorists' as an excuse to examine every detail about that person without needing to get an actual warrant or ever nee to prove to an impartial judge that there is indeed a need for said warrant?

Lets suppose that there is a government's quasi-secret intelligence contractor; one that has known access to the PRISM system which collects information on everyone in America; we'll call this fictional entity Cyveillance Inc., a subsidiary of the also fictional LookingGlass Cyber Solutions, from the fictional country of Arlington, Virginia.

Lets suppose this totally fictional entity is following a somewhat poor lead, but investigating it like they do any other, assuming its real.

Lets suppose that this intelligence contractor already has a bit of a bad reputation and a known history of abusing their powers and hacking into peoples personal pc's, devices, etc...

Lets now suppose that they happen to hack into a totally fictional person's social media accounts, dropbox, etc... looking for information. This person begins to notice something is amiss, but doesn't know who to blame.

Lets now suppose that this totally fictional person decides to set a trap for whatever totally fictional entity that has been hacking into his personal accounts.

This totally fictional person gets an idea: a link directing anyone who clicks on it to a blank website who's only purpose is to log's IP and device information of those who visit it... a totally secluded website freshly created only hours before and only accessible by means of a direct link..

He names this website "www.ijustfiguredoutwhoyouare.info"... but since that is a little too obvious the story's protagonist runs it through a link shortener to change is to something like short.lnk/AF0D3C4A
15 posts and 2 images submitted.
So suppose the employees of this fictional contractor happen to click on it using their personal cellular devices, and while viewing a blank webpage they notive something is amiss themselves and forward the link to their headquarters in the totally fictional county of Arlington, Virginia, where the employees there use the work PCs to access the website to better investigate what is going on.

If this were to happen this totally fictional person would gain not only the employee's personal cellular MEIDs, makes, and models belonging to the phones used to access said hyperlink, but also several IP addresses which happened to be owned by the aforementioned contractor, Cyveillance Inc....

Now suppose that this person calls this contractor and puts them on the spot. At first they deny. After some explanation of what has just occurred this totally fictional person is told "We cant discuss this with someone who is not our client" and abruptly is hung up on.
CH2: Shit Gets Good:

Within about 2 days of this person confronting this contractor, a neighbor is paid to install a WiFi repeater in their home which is then used by said Intelligence contractor to hack into this person's home Internet. It serves as an access point which is close enough to the protagonist's home internet that it can connect. They not only access the protagonist's home WiFi internet but begin to run exploits on every windows machine in the house, gaining remote administrative rights.

This fictional person notices that there are active VPN tunnels on his machine, and begins running a Network Monitor tool, which logs all internet traffic to a file. After beginning to log all network traffic this person begins doing the best he can to fight off whoever the currently unknown hacker is.

After about two days of booting devices off of the network, closing attacker's VPN tunnels, etc... is has become painfully obvious to Cyveillance Inc that this currently inexperienced network security professional, and this story's protagonist, is fully aware of an intruder's presence on the network and is actively fighting them off to the best of his novice abilities.

Then, he sees something quite astounding: thousands upon thousands of IP addresses connect to his computer simultaneously, making it nearly impossible to discern who is doing what on the machine.

A literal bot-net has connected with the protagonist's home PC. IP's from all over the world. Malaysia, Sweden, UK, Austalia, Germany... All the data on the computer starts getting sent somewhere else. The disk audibly drive spins up at 100% usage, the network activity is maxed out. Worse yet, somehow, the command line terminal stops working; windows commands the protagonist had just been using like 'netstat' begin to return 'unknown command'. Anything this person tries to save locally is instead saved to a network location somewhere else.
Not knowing what to do, this person unplugs the ethernet cable from his computer. In the last few minutes alone over 700MB of information had been taken from the computer and sent somewhere. But where? He can only tell that it was sent to the other side of a VPN tunnel.

This person decides to burn every network log he had captured over the previous two days onto a DVD. In fact, he burns several copies of it. The protagonist then distributes them everywhere he can so that should anything suddenly happen to the person he could be assured there will be at least one surviving copy to tell what had really happened. People this person had not talked to in years unknowingly received copies. Even the local newspaper received one.

So this totally fictional person contacts lawyers and tries to build a case,but there's a problem: The IP addresses and cellular information is intriguing, but the real damning evidence, the network logs may as well be in a different language.. indeed, they are in a different language: binary.

These network logs are not at all user friendly or easily understandable as they are a capture of all of the raw network data which has been transmitted. Literally a collection of binary packets. Even with the assistance of modern software analysis tools they require a literal computer scientist to make sense of, which the protagonist at the time was definitely not, and didn't personally know any.

In the end this fictional person couldn't quite make a damning case for something this radically unheard of, the suing of a nearly-secret government contractor with hard network evidence that may as well be written in Sumerian due to the difficulty of understanding it.

So instead this fictional person begins to spread word about the aforementioned contractor (Cyveillance Inc) all over social media and begins to air their dirty laundry the best this person knows how.

Hi /g/, GUI pro user here. Don't scoff, you need people like me. We're the ones that would sell your mom that Ubuntu laptop someday. And your mom needs to buy it for your dream to come true.

Speaking of that. Here's the problem with Linux on the desktop. See this screenshot? It's beautiful! Comfy, whatever. But it's a screenshot.

You try using this for an extended amount of time. It's not polished, and it eats away at you. The problem is not having shiny icons and pretty colors. The problem is those little bits of UI subtlety that are developed over decades on other operating systems. This never happened on Linux as every DE reinvents itself every few years.

It's always the little things.

Take workspaces for example. You want to drag a window or a file to a different workspace. How do you do that? On a Mac (and Openbox for that matter) I can hold the item with my mouse while switching to another workspace. Intuitive. Doesn't work in GNOME! Why?

Next, how about just downloading something? Download file. Click on file. What happens? I'm still looking at my browser. If I'm lucky, I get a "XYZ is ready" notification. Cause and effect - click on file, see file.

Or imagine navigating a tree without a mouse. What key do you press to expand a tree? Right arrow. Doesn't work in any GNOME app I tried! Why?

It's especially bothersome with me because with Openbox I can at least partially wrestle the GUI into submission through sheer willpower and a lot of shell scripting, but with GNOME it's essentially "take this shit or get out." Same with Elementary.

Are sane defaults really that hard? GNOME and EOS devs are trying to be Apple, but they do not know what made Apple great. All that spiel about "thinking different" and "magical experiences" and "just working" Is not just a joke. It's rooted in fucking understanding that good design is not just pretty icons, but also good experience while using the thing.

The hinge that connected to the casing for my laptop and the laptop itself has broken. the plastic has literally broken in pieces. is there any way to fix this? I can't even close my laptop, and the warranty on it expired months ago.

It's portability days are over. Buy an external monitor (~$10 at surplus outlets) and plug it into the video out. Bam you now have a perfectly good desktop.
Your best just to rip the whole screen off and to buy a external monitor like anon said.
Unless you don't mind not being able to close it.
Well, I need a laptop or desktop if i want to pass through college, so that seems like my only option, unless I rip the screen off this one, sell the computer alone, and get a new laptop or desktop (preferably desktop) for college, gaming, drafting, design, etc

Clearly the best mobile OS and mobile device combo on the market.

Any naysayer is just doing it to rustle peoples jimmies.

It's great if you want something that is secure and just werks. If you're wanting it to be more customizable, however, you'll feel extremely limited by it. The hoops you have to jump through just to add a new ringtone that you made is pretty shit, for example.

Why do 99% of Gaydroids look ugly then?

And ringtones are 2005, go kys.
In my experience, Apple products are further from "just werks" than any other products on the market.
Because taste is something that can differ between real people. Not that a sheep like you would know, since the only taste you have is the one tim cuck tells you to have.

best way to learn OpenMP?
need to learn it
openMP is dead, learn chapel.
Significantly larger, but also 5-10 times faster. Keep in mind C can't just print data structures like python, so comparing the entire code size is kind of unfair.
int cmp(const void *ap, const void *bp) {
int a = *(int*)ap, b = *(int*)bp;
return (a < b) ? -1 : (a > b);
void* generate_primes(int end) {
char primes[end];
memset(primes, 0, end*sizeof(char));
void *set = 0;
for(int i=2; i<end; i++) {
if(primes[i]) continue;
int* p = malloc(sizeof(int));
tsearch((*p=i, p), &set, &cmp);
for(int j=2*i; j<end; j+=i) primes[j] = 1;
return set;
char is_circular(int n, void *set) {
char str[32];
int l;
sprintf(str, "%d%n", n, &l);
for(size_t i=0; i<l-1; i++) {
str[l+i] = str[i];
str[l+i+1] = 0;
int c = atoi(str+i+1);
if(!tfind(&c, &set, &cmp)) return 0;
return 1;
void show_circ(const void *p, VISIT x, int level) {
static void* set = 0;
if(level == -1 && (set = (void*) p)) return;
if(x==preorder || x==endorder) return;
int n = **(int**)p;
if(is_circular(n, set)) printf("%d\n", n);
int main(int argc, char **argv) {

I have Windows 10 and Ubuntu on my machine. The w10 is for family who are used to it and ubuntu is for me.
This, but I'm thinking about having Ubuntu fuck off and just using Debian with Openbox or some shit. Budgie is kind of shitty.

When will politicians ever learn that banning something only applies to those who follow the law anyway.
If you ban something, criminals with either do it anyway, or just find a way around it.
The same thing back be said for terrorists.
Laws only affect the law-abiding.

>nothing affects no one
>we have achieved perfect society

this is was lolbertardians actually believe

and did someone say roads?
Not to mention, even IF companies complied, criminals and terrorists (and those who use encryption for legitimate privacy) would just start using PGP.

Laws don't affect criminals, criminals will still break the law, but if you don't catch them, the law doesn't matter.
However, you should still have laws as a basis for punishment.
But you shouldn't bother to have blanket bans, you should focus on addressing the cause of want to use the thing you're trying to ban, in the way you're trying to ban it.
Of course though, because you're a smarmy statist, you just automatically conflate my meaning.
Also, the MUH ROADS argument is profoundly stupid.

Forgive him father he does not know what he says.
Your stateless code runs as a stateful process, in a stateful OS, on stateful hardware.

There will never be a purely functional system.

If you want help:

Always consider an SSD. Try buying a large SSD for what you'd pay for your SSD+HDD combined, and add a HDD later
NVMe SSDs aren't for a faster OS boot, they're for productivity/scratch disk/VMs. NVMe and M.2 are not the same thing, M.2 is a form factor.
The Ryzen lineup comes with surprisingly good stock coolers. consider using them over any <$30 cooler.
Buying used is perfectly fine for budgets (PSU excluded)

Just got a 7700k, I have a dark rock 3 on it. 73C with aida 64 at 4.7ghz, voltage left on auto. Case is a fractal design nano s. I have two 140mm fans on intake at 1k rpm, the dark rock 3 at 1400 or 1500rpm, just with the fan that came on it, and a 120mm fan on rear exhaust at 1200rpm. The top moduvent piece of the case is off but has no fans installed, it's just venting. That's pretty decent in my opinion considering it's still almost silent sitting on my desk. What does /g/ think?

Also 1080ti, which one is best. I have a Strix card right now and love it. Dead silent, overclocked slightly and is only hitting 62C in that tiny ass case.
Basically I have 2 options that are exactly the same in price but have exactly the same issue.
1. MSI B350M Gaming Pro MOBO with Corsair RAM that is on QVL but with different capacity (16gb on QVL vs 8gb I can buy that's not)
2. ASRock B350M-HDV and G.Skill Trident Z RAM, same shit there - 16gb version is on QVL and 8gb is not.

Wat do

Didn't get much help from /wsr/, was told to post it here so that's what I'm gonna do.

I'm trying to get my Xbox 360 Controller to work on my PC so that I can play Initial D Stage 6, but it's not working.

I have both the cable, and the wireless adapter thing. They used to work, but after not using either of them for about a year or so, they aren't working anymore for some reason. The controller won't pair with the wireless adapter, and when connecting the controller to the PC by the cord, the PC nothing happens.

What do?

Sounds like there's either a problem with your computer, or your Xbox controller.
Sounds like Windows Computer (commonly known as WC) problem. Did you try contacting Microsoft® on the problem?
