Is there any somesort of adblocker for Metro apps? My favourite manga reader just added ads with no option to disable or upgrade to ad-free and they fuck me off.

Codecs are something that help your computer decode the videos . Video players use codecs ( either the players own codec or the ones installed on the computer ). Those things you mentioned are codec packs . MPC-hc and vlc are about the same with a couple interface difference .

Well, I mean besides that I would use a dedicated reader. I would use Cloud Reader to read my comics. On my iPad mini, it was never an issue reading on a tablet for me.

The only downside is you would have to download your manga individually.

It's a voltmeter, they're supposed to go in parallel mate. Amps go in series.

>Shorting your psu by connecting wrong tips etc .
I know where there's supposed to be 12V and where there's supposed to be 0V. If I connect those and the PSU shorts, then I'll still know it's broken. So how is the wrong?

>How do torrents work
Files are transferred between people who have parts, or all of whatever it is you're after.

You download a torrent file, and open it using a torrent client.

When you're done downloading, keep your client open to help other people download. It's extremely poor manners to remove the torrent from your client before seeding it to at least another person, if not two.

No. You have to convert via distance (which is actually the index if you have an array):

I'm not well-versed with web design whatsoever, I know how to examine HTML (I can recognize what lines do what, but that's pretty much common knowledge for any tech literate person) but that's about as far as my knowledge goes.

I'm looking to make my own website, and while I've resigned to the fact that I'll be using a web-builder like Wix, since it has simple drag-and-drop elements, there's something that is vital that can seemingly only be done by hand.

The landing page is going to have a centered image, and a very, very simple login prompt below it. A cryptic-type login, with no prompt to register or sign up, just a simple login/pass that you must know beforehand before proceeding to the actual site itself. What can I do to set this up? I don't want someone to be able to type www.fakesite.com/realpage.html and suddenly get access to the site, you know?

I don't know if I'm articulating myself right, but would love some help.
>>
>>51592844
I should add, I don't want any flashy things on the site itself. I plan for it to be a very simple compendium of information that is going to be presented in a simple, readable fashion - and that's all. I don't give a fuck about modern HTML5 fade in background, autoplay videos behind my shit, etc etc. I'll be totally fine actually making the actual site, the only hurdle is the login system itself.

I've got a Proliant SE326M1. As it's a special edition, I can't find any documentation. The MoBo product number is 591747-001, and I can't find anything on that either. The most pressing question I have right now is: does this MoBo have PWM fan regulation? The fans are connected to a 6-pin on the MoBo with an adapter that splits in 2 6-pin males marked "inlet" and "outlet". PWMcontrol says there's no PWM controlled fans (I've already used lm-sensors). I've tried installing the ProLiant suite of thingies, reading the manual I found it doesn't have fan control options. I'm thinking the server has no PWM controller, but before I buy an external controller I'd like to be sure. Can anyone help me?

I have a g2.8xlarge running win server 2012 r2 on 32 xeon cores and 4 Nvidia K520s, but I'm only getting like 350M trips per second total with Meriken's engine, 28 search threads and all gpus. I feel like this is pretty low, each gpu is only producing ~60M/sec. From what I've read a single 980 Ti is capable of pushing almost 1000M/sec.

Anything I can do to optimize CUDA processing on this machine or is there any good and easy way to cluster a few of them? Is there a better service I can use for this?

Are there any good cracks for Lightroom 6 that won't install fucking malware on my PC?

>inb4 use a free as in freedom alternative
I do that for Photoshop already and it's fine but almost every free RAW editor alternative either doesn't have batch, doesn't have HDR bracketing (forcing me to use a separate tool that produces meh results), or is OK but is extremely tedious with no batch whatsoever (what I've been using, ChasysDraw). I used the Lightroom CC trial and it's been perfect.

Are you using onboard speakers? They are probably trash regardless of what the reviews called them.

check 'disable all enhancements' and use an audio player/video player with a built-in equalizer if you want to use that kind of thing. The bass boost is probably lowering non-bass frequencies and loudness equalization is just compressing the volumes of everything. Thanks to the loudness wars this is already done for you in the studio so that option is just making it even worse.
>>

Oh, and I meant to say, get a usb DAC. You don't need anything fancy to get something better than your onboard.

Hi /g/ I have a simple question:
I've been running a pirate version of windows 7 ultimate 64 bits for some years and I'd like to upgrade to windows 10 for performance improvements and DX12 support

I mean, the system never warned me about the fact that this copy isn't original

It depends on how you activated your copy.
You can always try, if you run into problems install a clean copy of windows 7 and activate it with DAZ loader, you will be able to upgrade to windows 10 with no problems

I have a Beaglebone Black Seriving up a webcam stream.

The quality is shit, which is not a shocker since the BBB wasn't made for feeding a 720P frame to clients.

I have very little knowledge of this but I was thinking:

Is there any way to get a raw feed to be piped to another more powerful server that would proccess and stream the frames on my local network?

In short, BBB just captures and sends the feed over the network to another machine in charge of encoding and streaming.

I'm not even sure how to properly ask this question or where to start looking. In fact, Im not even sure if there is a solution here....

How can I force specific format of user input in a tkinter text box in python? For example, I just want the user to be able to edit the 0's to be numbers and have the : stay (or something like that).

My main TV may die this year (it's an early Samsung HDTV that sort of fakes HDTV).

I went a purchased a Sony XBR65X850C TV during black friday sale to kind of store and use it when it does die, or I might just donate the half-broken but still working Samsung TV to charity and make someone's day.

I read reviews that said that on top of it's quality resolution and size, that it's the real deal (native 120hz refresh, good online abilities, etc...).

I just wanted a solid TV under 70". Did I fuck up?

the automagic ones all suck ass, but assuming your duplicates all have the same or simmilar names, just use everything search to find shit with the same name/simmilar name since it narrows down as you type

>installs program where said woman can control her desktop remotely, links her to this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Koobface

Is there ANY chance this is at all legit and not a complete scam? I can't find shit about it on google one way or the other.
>>
>>51602846
>thinking there's even a remote chance this might be legit
wth anon, there's no way in hell this could ever possibly be legit, and I don't even have to go to that website to know. first and foremost windows remote assistance is on by default so there\s no need for ms to have you install anything extra to remote control your computer, you just have to accept the connection. secondly nothing computer related that involves an indian accent is legit, and I could go on and on but you get the point right?

>>51602846
It's obviously a complete scam

Yeah I kinda knew it in my bones I just needed to know for sure. Since she installed their program, but didn't pay them, has the damage been done anyway? Should she change all her banking info now, even if I remove it?
>>
>>51602975
they should have only had local access so unless she keeps her details in a local file or has logged in since installing that shit she should be ok, but a format and reinstall is in order cause who knows what they changed to open her up to other attacks

So my harddrive has been failing for about 2 years now.

She's a tough girl, but recently any time I try to boot my PC up it just says "missing operating system." So I think this ol' gal is done for.

I'm going to take the harddrive out and use a SATA>USB adapter and see if I can get a few of the files I didn't back up.

Here's a picture, for those of you who are interested in this kinda thing. I think the PC is from 2007 or 2008.

Alright I need help removing this.

I unplugged the two cables and undid the two screws on the side but it won't budge.

What am I missing?
>>
>>51603823
there's two screws on the other side as well, depending on how your case is set up, the drive cage may unlatch and slide out, or you may have to take off the rest of the case and shit to get at the other side of it

Huh, you were right, it was just stuck. Thank you anon.

Here it is, 7 years of being a trusty hard drive. Hopefully with a USB adapted I can get the few files I wasn't able to back up.

I wonder what I should do with the rest of the PC...

Hey guys, I downgraded my terrible HP laptop from windows 8 to windows 7. I have three USB ports and only one of them works now after downgrading. (the one that works is the one used with the USB stick to install windows)

I tried installing the Windows 8 drivers but its still fucked captain. Anyone know how to get these two other USB ports to work? or an alternative?
