Getting my PC cleaned professionally because it is REALLY bad.
Should I hide pirated stuff in a password protected folder or am I being paranoid?
I mean this shit is nasty, posted about it a few days ago.
Just take that entire build. I mean the entire thing, and dunk it into a container of rubbing alcohol. Maybe then it'll break some of that smoker's dust free. How do you let your things get like this? What does the rest of your house look like?
Why does /g/ have a knee jerk reaction to decent, well regarded hardware?
>downloading torrents at university
>getting full speeds, getting 30 MB/s download
>30 minutes into downloading
>torrents stop, internet disconnects
send help. how much longer until something happens? posting from the phone btw
Speed test thread?
Costs $40/month. Verizon FIOS. Optimum recently upped their plans and are offering 300/100 for the same price and unlike Verizon, they let me use my own router. Stuck in a contract though. Thanks dad. I pay for many things in this house (including Internet) and he doesn't even consult me before switching over from Optimum in the 1st place.
"my house my rules" yea fuck you. See how much your rules mean and just how much money you have to hemorrhage to pay your bills every month when I move out.
FiOS lets you use your own router, I have mine on a pfsense box. You just have to use a MoCA brdige to get your VoD and guide info for your TV set top boxes.
The G1100 has a MoCA bridge built in which is why it's recommended you use their router, you don't HAVE to use their router though.
Also FiOS has $69.99 for 1gbps now, not much to compare to that from any ISP.
>A baseband processor typically uses its own RAM and firmware
>Since the software which runs on baseband processors is usually proprietary, it is impossible to perform an independent code audit. By reverse engineering some of the baseband chips, researchers have found security vulnerabilities that could be used to access and modify data on the phone remotely
>Today's phones come with two separate processors: one is a general-purpose applications processor that runs the main operating system, e.g. Android; the other, known as the modem, baseband, or radio, is in charge of communications with the mobile telephony network. This processor always runs a proprietary operating system, and these systems are known to have backdoors that make it possible to remotely convert the modem into a remote spying device. The spying can involve activating the device's microphone, but it could also use the precise GPS location of the device and access the camera, as well as the user data stored on the phone. Moreover, modems are connected most of the time to the operator's network, making the backdoors nearly always accessible
>we discovered that the proprietary program running on the applications processor in charge of handling the communication protocol with the modem actually implements a backdoor that lets the modem perform remote file I/O operations on the file system
Phones are insecure, stop using and walking around with a device that has access to your files and data. Stop using a device that is restricted and locked down by the manufacture in all aspects and is built on proprietary hardware and firmware.
*blocks access to the backdoor*
heh... nothin personnel... cia nigger...
What the FUCK is his endgame?
What is wrong with his left eye? Literally on every pic of him it's visibly bigger than the right. Is it a glass eye or something?

Protip: You can't.

How is it a million dollar international company that charges an arm and a leg for their shit can't compete with a small time jap company that charges 70?
Is there a way to bypass the download quota?
I'm trying to download some large files
This thread about saying fuck you to Google, Microsoft, et. al and about providing viable alternatives to their services that actually respect your freedom, privacy and anonymity.Google? getgle.org
pomf.se? pomf.cat / catbox.moe
If you know other alternatives post 'em.
Nice suggestion, idiot.
Daily reminder that most of the free open source projects are led by commies.
I thought this was wrong since there is no government in free software that tells people what to work on.
But then I realized Linus Torvalds and a few other "free" people call themselves "benevolent dictators".
So I guess it's true.
FOSS really is communism.

ALWAYS LOOK AT PRODUCT REVIEWS!
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
r8 and h8 my first budget build. I know it's shit but the prices in canada are pretty high. I do plan on getting a better CPU and GPU in the future.
