Why I prefer Pale Moon
watching the same vid Pale Moon uses less virtually same ram but less CPU
Both hardware acceleration enabled
I want to have proper car security /g/, as I have paid a fortune for my car.
Does a car camera exist where it can connect to a mobile network(4G)/satellite and wirelessly upload the data to my desktop at home? This is so if the cam is destroyed, the video feed will still be alive.
It would also be nice if the camera had GPS tracking, so I can monitor where my car is located at in case it gets stolen.
Your obsession with the camera idea is profoundly stupid. It's defeated by a mask and will not actually protect your "fortune" expenditure. You admit yourself that you need to plan for the cam getting destroyed! Brother if the cam is destroyed, the car is long chopped up.
There are plenty of small GPS trackers you can buy which work off of a prepaid mobile phone SIM. Spend a few minutes on Amazon. But when it comes to car security, go have a proper security system installed which disables the car when armed. Then make sure to leave nothing attractive for thieves in the cabin and park it in the safest and most visible areas.

why does this shit forces me to use smartphone? is there any way to use 2FA without having one?
Let's have a TECHNOLOGY thread
I'm writing a piece about the IBM 7090, the first commercially viable, fully transistorized computing system.
I've been reading through the reference manual and it's fantastic. Most technology today is the result of severe abstraction, excluding all the details that aren't essential and focusing on making things simple for the user. This results in a user completed disconnected from the actual low-level function of the computer. But with these old mainframes, the reference manuals get into how the mainframes work, talking about CPU (the size of a large cabinet) separated into distinct parts that are essentially the control unit and the ALU.
Commodore computer manuals have pretty much all that. I'm not even old enough to have used one in their heyday, but it's fun exploring these old machines.
Pic related is EBR-I, a classy piece of tech too far ahead of its time.
ITT we post obsolete tech still being used and why it's obsolete
It's been degraded to a fashion accessory, the majority of people just use their smartphone for checking the time these days.
With websites getting shut down from ever getting a proper domain name, with left allowed to dox people without repercussion, it's only a matter of time before an accidentally posted "nigger" or "spic" on 4chan will make you lose your job.
How you ask? Google captcha.
With every single captcha filled Google gets your IP address, page you're on and a timestamp. This information is enough to determine what was posted and by who. Yes, you're the guy with a "nigger" post on /g/, and Google knows it. If that data is "accidentally" leaked, Twatter scavengers will definitely have a go at it. No one with a brain wants this.
Google captcha is only unique in how much of a botnet it is. It is replaceable otherwise.
Thus it must be changed for free as in not-botnet solutions. It's entirely achievable, even eight channel uses some alternative captcha. Here are some of them, I'm sure there are more:
All boards, not just /g/, should come to an agreement on this.
>b-bbbut just use legacy captcha
Legacy captcha is an older version of the same Google recaptcha service. Google still gets the same identification information. It's unsupported and may be shut down unexpectedly, will a harder v2 captcha be a wakeup call then?
>b-bbubbut just get a pass
Pass is not a guarantee against the botnet. It only disables captcha input. New users are not protected against the captcha whatsoever, it may take time for them to decide to get a pass, until then they are put in danger.
>bb--bbbut any other captcha will make the pass worthless, hiro will never allow that
A pass doesn't just bypass the captcha, but also reduces wait times for posting and gets around country blocks. These features cannot be emulated and will still have as much worth as with an alternative captcha. Not to mention a section of users use the pass as a donation mechanism, without expecting return. An alternative captcha cannot hurt pass sales.
Please help me with my PC, i made a good chose? any improvements?
here is the list: https://www.pccomponentes.com/lista-de-deseos/olMvZPsONQwxsR
will z370 motherboards support kaby/skylake cpus? we already know it'll be the same 1151 socket
i'm aware that they'll make changes to z370 to support 6 cores, so clearly a hexacore won't work on z170/z270
the reason i'm asking is because i have a 6700k on a mediocre z170 gigabyte board (z170m-d3h) and i'd like an upgrade to something more solid. should i get a good z270 board now or wait for z370?
everywhere i look on google they mention that the new chips won't work on the old boards, but no mention of the other way around
Why not just wait it out for Ryzen 2/Intel 10NM desktop parts and get a brand new platform with actual performance gains? Its pretty obvious LGA1151 is almost dead, and spending 100+$ for no performance gains seems stupid,
i don't fucking need performance gains
i was on a xeon L5420 for many years before jumping on a 6700k last year. those aren't "performance gains" you're talking about. I need better system stability and connectivity, which my board isn't too great with. it has a retarded m2 slot placement, legacy pci slots, no usb type c port, crappy cooling on the vrm
I don't see any reason that I should be forced to work with black people in the tech industry.
These ooga booga niggers are lazy, don't know shit about tech, somehow managing to was hundreds of thousands of dollars on education like the leaches they are. Even in the workplace they manage to be a waste of time and resources because you have to explain everything to their chimp brains.
They need to go back to working in cotton farms or collecting welfare stamps, it's the only two things these types of people have been useful for. Better yet, ship them back to Africa so they starve to death with their species.
Does anybody remember bumptop and also cubedesktop
is my chinkpad going to die?
windows got a total freeze, absolutely nothing worked except the mouse cursor, i had to shut it down by force.
after the reboot, i found this particular error among the others from the force shut down. do i need to change the CPU or something?
ram is fine, tested it with memtest for serveral hours and not a single error was found.
We've all seen how awesome Google Timeline looks and how cool it would be to use it, however you can't really because of course it's Google. As long as that's on basically everyone (Google, gov't, insurers, etc. etc.) will know exactly where you are and where you've been.
So is there something similarly cool that you can self host on a server or phone without draining the complete bajezus out of ur battery (looking at you Oruxmaps)? Preferably not using Google Loc Services cause that sort of defeats the purpose... Does something like this even exist?
- selfhosted, no 3rd party bs
- not too big battery drain
- should look decent, easy UI
- should work automatically, always in the background
