So there is a program that uses RSA encryption for the communication. I have the public key, can I somehow get Wireshark to spit out the raw data rather than encrypted one? I assume since the program can decrypt the messages the public key should suffice but I'm not sure if there's a way to do that in Wireshark.

I recently put a fresh Windows 7 installation on my laptop, which I want to shrink down to 250GB. However, it looks like I can't shrink it down that far within W7's own partition manager due to unmovable files.

Does that mean it wouldn't be wise to boot into a live USB and shrink the volume down from outside with gparted? Or should that be fine?

Brandon Phillips

Yes, it would be unwise and would break things. Afaik there are methods for doing this but I can't remember them right now.

Luke Jenkins
Luke Jenkins

The hard part about learning JS as your first language is that it is event based.

When you start to learn other languages, they are most likely going to not be event based. The logic is much more like reading instructions on a paper.

I wouldn't. Personally, I would use windirstat to find the biggest files. If you have a few large (.sys?) files in your C:/ dir, you should turn off hibernation and decrease your virtual memory size.

Then see if it works.

Anthony White

The SATA plugs you ding dong.

SATAe is for external connections.

Anthony Diaz

It boils down to the use of WinAPI in games. Probably the functions that these people used didn't really change so it's working.

Daniel Bennett
Daniel Bennett

this is a pretty damn general question. happens for different reasons for different software. for example, KOTOR works on old computers but doesn't work on modern ones because it doesn't work with multi-core processors, which didn't exist when it was made.

Thomas Cruz

Oh, that makes a lot more sense. So let's suppose a game breaks on the next Windows, is the developer supposed to patch the game, or is Microsoft supposed to fix a potential bug?

The developer is expected to update the game because Microsoft decided to make a change to WinAPI that's not backwards compatible.

Charles Morales
Charles Morales

Its the developer's job. Windows would be a horrible company if they didn't have backwards compatibility for most programs, but its not their problem if some random faggot's software breaks on the new OS cause they didn't plan ahead.
Plus its not really a "bug" its just incompatible software. Its not a bug if you can't shove a graphics card in a usb slot.

I'm the guy with the weird ALT-TAB "No Signal" problem. It happened again but this time I didn't even ALT-TAB. It happened when I tried opening a video. I tried doing as the one user said and tried only pressing the power button once to see if it would turn off, but it didn't. So I had to do a long press.

Now the question is what's the problem? My motherboard used to have some bent pins before but I bent them back as best as I could. The computer has been stable so far but do you guys think these weird "No Signal" monitor disconnects are because of my motherboard and I didn't bend the pins correctly enough? Or is it my GPU that's the problem? I've already replaced it twice for other reasons so I can't see how it's the GPUs fault.

Thanks in advance for any answers, I'm seriously wondering what the fuck is going on. I feel like I just want to throw this computer away.

If you have an integrated GPU then try disabling the dedicated one and using the integrated one for a bit to see if the problem persists, if not, then you can rule out the GPU. I've no other advice though.

jQuery is cross browser tested and supported by all major browsers to be compatible. Straight JS is a mess and only a fool would spend countless hours testing across browsers and/or simply not having their programs work on certain browsers.

Landon Thomas
Landon Thomas

Lol, he's saying that it would perform better without using jQuery.

not even that, it's just that there is no reason to add a 10k LoC dependency just to swap out an attribute of an element if the vanilla js api allows you to do so in a trivial way

It all depends on what other hardware you're using of course, you totally could, just be mindful of what you're doing. If you haven't already bough it though it would cost much more to get a better PSU though.

something like this? save it, fill in the array, change the youtube-dl params to whatever you need, set executable flag on the file and you're good to go

if your browser doesn't allow to do what he needs to do then it doesn't adhere to the standard and you should probably consider switching to a browser that's actually worth using

i do realize that but i'm extremely buttblasted when i see jquery apologists that think it's okay to add a fuckhuge dependency to achieve something that's otherwise trivially done with javascript without any libraries

Landon Perry

there is no reason to add a 10k LoC dependency just to swap out an attribute of an element

Because that dependency works across all browsers that support jQuery. Are there really people out there still using straight JS on web pages?

If that guy is taking a class and they aren't teaching him how things are done now, then he might as well drop out and start learning this stuff on his own and not graduate with a skillset that was replaced 10 years ago with something much better.

he still needs to learn the basic gist of the language, would you also recommend that someone learning c++ would start straight up with boost because it makes some things easier? and no, i'm not saying you shouldn't be using libraries, but use them where they are needed, you don't need an entire big ass library to swap out an attribute of an element and I doubt such a trivial task would even break in any browser that's worth a shit, but you're welcome to point me to any browser that's still in use today that'd break on:

document.getElementById('id').attr = value;

you see, this kind of logic got us into the mess in the first place, let's throw all standards out of the window and then write a library that's supposed to stitch what we've intentionally broken from day zero

I've been making web pages since 1999. jQuery is a gift from the gods. I can't even fathom how much time of my life was wasted cross-browser testing.

Nobody is going to tell you they can't view something or something isn't showing correctly on your web page, they are just going to go somewhere else. I guess if the only thing you plan on doing is making web pages for school assignments and/or your friends, then do whatever you want. If you want to develop web pages that are accessible to the widest audience possible, then either accept that jQuery is the new standard or enjoy countless hours testing your web pages in multiple versions of multiple browsers and adding a lot of exceptions.

Why waste an ounce of effort trying to determine if your JS will work on multiple browsers when you don't have to anymore? Sure, his JS he has there will work, but what about other scripts he tries to write? Will the code I posted work, yes. Will it work on every modern browser, yes. See how much simpler that is. Why guess when you can know.

I don't understand what you mean by programming, you still use plenty of programming in jQuery. It's still Javascript, it just has much stricter rules than straight JS.

I'm the jQuery guy. Lot of anger in here, not sure why. The first guy answered your question by pointing out your '==' mistake. I was just having fun and showing you how to accomplish the same thing in jQuery which didn't even require any programming. I figure if a person is going to get into web development, they should be aware that there are many ways to accomplish the same task. Let the haters hate, but as an employer, I would hire someone with jQuery skills over just JS skills, simply from the point that time is money. I didn't make the rules, it's just how business works.

Open up command prompt (cmd.exe), type in ping google.com

can't resolve dns = (usually) router or ISP problem. Reset router and modem.
ping time out = try other hosts, if they work then that host is down. If it doesn't work on any host, you're offline (so reset router & modem.)

jQuery is a JS library, it's not another language.

Anything you can do in Javascript you can do in jQuery, it's just jQuery is standardized which allows for much faster and more simplified ways to accomplish tasks that can be extremely difficult to accomplish using straight JS.

Another reason jQuery is superior is that you don't have to mix your JS with your HTML. The same reason CSS became so popular, it made more sense to separate the formatting from the style. jQuery is the same concept, you simply add an id tag in your HTML and then all your programming is done from the <script> section. Makes it much easier to troubleshoot when you don't have to look 2 places to see where the problem is occurring.

I kinda get why people are pissed. I was really opposed to learning it as well, the learning curve was a little steeper than I was hoping for, but now that I've learned it I would never go back. Such a time saver.

Dylan Hughes
Dylan Hughes

Most of the current browsers don't support it.

Assuming you want to use it on windows, run Disk Management, format it. It's likely using some linux filesystem that windows doesn't understand.

S/PDIF can't carry power, and is digital. To get analogue out, you'd need a DAC, and something to power it, hence the converter box.
For low latency, analogue 3.5mm just werks.

I have this power adaptor that gets 110V/220V AC and delivers 3V, 4.5V, 6V, 7.5V, 9V or 12V DC. But it has a problem: the 4.5V (only I tested) oscillates so much it reaches 10V. I believe this would fuck completely the devices I could connect to it, so I didn't connected.

I opened, and saw this inside. What is wrong?

BTW, it smells good.

David Walker

Thank you so much for proving my point. Javascript is all over the place in how it can be used. I could hire 2 JS developers and one could put the listener in the HTML and another might put it in a script. Where as jQuery is much more standardized. Also why it's much easier to learn, because you don't have to learn multiple ways to accomplish the same task.

uBlock Origin and this user.js both do two different things. uBlock is a general purpose blocker add-on, with the ability to select any element you want and hide it or block it from even reaching the page.

This user.js looks like a way to just change some settings in Firefox to make it "more secure", which sounds gimmicky and stupid in the first place.

Does your radio has an audio output plug, like headphones?

Does your computer has an audio input plug, like microphone?

Then, it might be easier than you think. But please, take into account that a headphone plug has more power than a microphone can output.

Manually specifying the type of device doesn't work either. Windows still doesn't recognise it as an external storage device.

So I used the sata power cables from a different power supply and apparently this can cause issues as I would find out. I smelt a sort burning smell and now the SSD I was testing with isn't recognised, I guess it shorted out. How likely is it that the data would be recoverable and would it be something I could do on my own? I looked at local data recovery prices and they are insane, inguedd because they are mainly targeting businesses.

Like is it likely something I could fix by buying another drive of the same model and replacing the burnt out part or is it likely more serious than that?

Hi me 2 years ago when I was dreading having to learn yet one more thing. I used to only use JS as an absolute last resort because I was always terrified of getting the dreaded user call that something wasn't working correctly and I've have to go all Columbo to figure out which version of which browser they were using. I've gone nuts since I started using jQuery, I love not worrying about that kind of stuff anymore.

Looks like a very basic unregulated power supply design, the voltage will go up and down quite a bit as you vary the load, especially with all that rust on the transformer.

If you want a solid 4.5V, get a modern power brick using a switchmode or at least linear regulated design.

If it's just the connector that's burnt you might be able to repair it. If you gave it the wrong voltages, it's ded, you should assume it's all gone unless you want to pay the big bucks for data recovery possibly being able to get something back, but even then, good luck.

It's just that the phone jack is slowly starting to trend away from smartphones, but I'd still use wired over wireless in most situations, if people just rethought about using digital instead of analog.

I would use the phone jack as long as the cable is thick enough to have minimal interference.

Joseph Thompson

That's exactly what's plugged in.

Yes, ADB is one program.

You shouldn't need to turn USB Debugging on and off all the time, just set it on once. What's your Android version? Maybe update to at least Lollipop if you can so you don't have to activate it every time you plug your phone in.

Ryder Fisher
Ryder Fisher

BSD and Linux are both kernels with different strengths. Though both are monolithic kernels, Linux tends to have more drivers and firmware available for it, whereas BSD needs more.

BSD code might be a little cleaner, simpler and easier for programmers to understand, but Linux developers also are really paid well, just due to its higher popularity.

I just followed a guide on DigitalOcean on how to set up 2 web site blocks on my server through nginx. I did one thing differently though. Instead of putting the files in the /var/www/ directory they are in /home/webadmin/files. This is where I want them to be for how I have remote access set up. How can I properly point nginx to work with this directory?

In the site blocks I made sure to set root to /home/webadmin/files/mydomain.ga yet when I try to connect either with one of my domains it says it took too long to respond but when I try to go to the local ip of my server it says refused to connect.
Either what am I doing wrong or how can I know for sure what exactly Im doing wrong?

Okay well since you said that it refuses the connection it makes me think that it doesn't listen at all:

Can you do this:

netstat -anp | grep 80 | grep -i listen

If nothing shows up, then nginx is not started for some reason, if something shows up then there are a few more possible cases:
Are you using a router? Is the port forwarded?
Are you sure the main config includes these configs?

Trying to switch over from Chrome to Chromium using a stable build from chromium.woolyss.com/ for Windows 64 bit

Chromium refuses to sign in under the settings page though; I do email, pass, phone verification, then nothing happens. I can still sign into chrome, but I can't do this in chromium. Is this a common issue? Should I wait for an update?

Chrome has been opening tabs at a snail's pace, and the browser will essentially become unusable until all tabs are loaded. This started roughly a month ago when I noticed it updated because the bar at the bottom that shows up when you right click and save a file had changed. Chromium doesn't have this problem, so it's inherent to some setting in chrome and is why I'm trying to switch over.

Safe Mode and Safe Mode with Networking work as they are supposed to.

Normal start up leads to the "Starting Windows" screen, black, and then a blue screen that's says something like tried to restart drivers and at the bottom says something like dumping physical memory to disc.

Looks like a very basic unregulated power supply design
Unregulated? It has 4 diodes inside it, I suppose they do some rectification. But not much, as I could check. I have not photographed them, but I have this related model of the same manufacturer. The angle I photographed is a bit tilted, so you can see how it's like.

the voltage will go up and down quite a bit as you vary the load
I have not varied any load. Just plugged it on the wall power socket, and attached the multi-tester tips on the right terminals.

If you want a solid 4.5V
I want solid 6V.

get a modern power brick using a switchmode or at least linear regulated design

Diodes don't do any regulation, they just turn the AC in into ripply DC.

So basically when people have builds that have like a 6700k, a z170 mobo, and an aftermarket cooler for overclocking, they're doing it to overclock their cpu and not the gpu?

And how safe would it be to overclock a gpu in a case with only 2 fans? Would I need more or is it all dependent on the graphics card's own fans?

Fastest alternative to Windows Photo Viewer?

Leaning towards XnView at the moment. Don't need all the extra stuff that requires separate plugins like with Irfanview since I use Photoshop or Paint for editing.

My only issue with XnView is that it looks like it has it's own GUI? I don't want the image previews or need to have other stuff open on the side. I just want the image and the toolbar/controls, nothing else. Basically I just want Windows Photo Viewer but faster at opening images when I double click on them.

I've been using JPEGView for a bit. Not sure if it's any faster without explicitly testing so (seems the same to me) but I like the minimalist nature of it.

Overclocking CPUs (the k types for Intel) have overclocking support. Overclocking motherboards support overclocking for CPU and RAM, you need both a overclocking CPU and an overclocking CPU to do a CPU overclock, although I believe you can do RAM overclocking with just a overclocking motherboard without a overclocking CPU (you wouldn't want to buy a set up like this though, CPU overclock is more important and they don't cost that much more than nonoverclocking CPU, so if you're already going for the board there is no reason not to get the CPU as well).

GPUs can be overclocked regardless. Case fans do matter but if you have one intake and 1 out fan that should be more than it matters for a basic overclock. Once you have basic case fans like 1 in and out the GPU's own fans matter more than the case fans.

Your ability to overclock the GPU matters more with what GPU it is and how lucky you are, some models in general overclock better than others, but even within the same model a single GPU (or any PC part for that matter, the same thing applies to CPUs and RAM) can overclock better than another of the same model. This is called the silicon lottery, one 970 might be able to overclock to 1500Mhz, and another might only be able to overclock to 1400Mhz, it's luck of the draw.

Get Connectbot or some fork of it. It's an SSH client for your phone, and has an option to give you a local shell. From there you can ls, mv, cp, mkdir and grep right there on your phone, no PC needed.
Potential disadvantage: It's not real cp, mv, ls, etc., it's somewhat limited Busybox versions
rm failed for -rf, No such file or directory
Fuck this Busybox. Your mileage may vary. It depends on your ROM.

Or you can get an SSH server app and do the same from your PC and its comfy full keyboard. Again, you're using the phone's command line. See above.

Or you can get an SSH server that supports SCP and/or SFTP, mount the phone from the PC using sshfs, and run the commands on the PC. This lets you use the real command line you have on your PC but operate on the files on your phone, without moving them to the PC first.

Or of course use a USB line and manipulate the files as you would on a USB drive.

China is precisely why they're pretty much all switchmode now. It uses cheaper components and allows a smaller transformer. I remember when wall warts were heavy things. Now they're all super lightweight and tiny. And a lot of them struggle to deliver half the current they're rated for, but that's a different problem that's also because China.

The exceptions are high quality linear power supplies (massive transformer, not terribly efficient, often seen in variable-voltage bench power supplies), and capacitive droppers (cheap beyond cheap, questionable safety iirc, sometimes found in cheapass LED based things).

Holy fuck, they got even worse? The tensions that should be between 3V and 12V were between 16V and 25V. So, 3V was 10V, now it's 16V. That's very weird!

Fuck this shit, into le trash it goes!!!!!

But, please, I want to know first: are the transformers themselves worth scraping?

Switched-mode power supply
However, unless very carefully designed and using suitable components, switching adapters are more likely to fail than the older type, due in part to complex circuitry and the use of semiconductors.
Unless designed well, these adapters may be easily damaged by overloads, even transient ones, which can come from lightning, brief mains overvoltage (sometimes caused by an incandescent light on the same power circuit failing), component degradation, etc.
A very common mode of failure is due to the use of electrolytic capacitors whose equivalent series resistance (ESR) increases with age; switching regulators are very sensitive to high ESR (the older linear circuit also used electrolytic capacitors, but the effect of degradation is much less dramatic).
Well-designed circuits pay attention to the ESR, ripple current rating, pulse operation, and temperature rating of capacitors.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AC_adapter#Modes_of_operation

How can I know the circuit was well-designed?

Dylan Thompson

what's the best way to backup windows machine and & files (documents) to a nas ? system restore won't do the job i think, since the file versions are left up to date, just the system files get restored, right ? 3rd party tool like robocopy ? It's not for me, have to set it up for a friend of my boss. It has to regularly back up/copy let's say bookkeeping to the nas.

I asked this in a couple of previous threads, and got some responses, my main options are Crashplan, the free version for offsite backup, robocopy, and Macrium Reflect Free.

Just found out that windows has the needed functions bult-in.

My router has an option for IP passthrough that can be assigned to a computer in the network aswell as an option to enable static NAT where I can do the same.

Can somebody explain to me in relatively simple terms what these do? Do I need to enable either for portforwarding to be effective, when gaming?

I tried googling it but it doesn't help me much.. It's all a bunch of copypastes of the same 1 paragraph information that doesn't help me.

Is there any way to do a "portable" 4-drive raid-6 in windows with sane write speed?
I don't want to do motherboard raid because there's no guarantee it will work on next generation of chipsets and it definitely won't work over usb should I ever need to connect my storage drives as externals.
MS storage spaces do some bullshit "double" parity that somehow reserves less than two drives worth of space. How the fuck does it work? What would happen if two drives fail simultaneously? Also I've heard there are issues with expandability and most importantly write speed drops to 5% of intel raid at best and 0.01% at worst.
Is a pair of simple windows raid-1 arrays really my best option? Pretty sure Windows cannot into raid-10.

Question: In Python with some modules I seem to need to force some classes into the namespace rather then just calling them through the hierarchy. If I don't I get Attribute Errors, like so...
"""
import matplotlib
ani = matplotlib.animation...

AttributeError: module 'matplotlib' has no attribute 'animation'
"""

As opposed to the correct way which works...
"""
import matplotlib.animation as Animation
ani = Animation...

64 is sdxc
There should never be any size limit, only types support. If it's a modern enough phone it will most likely support sdxc (pretty sure anything since first snapdragon works), but if it's some pmp or other custom hardware running custom os you should ask manufacturer.

my webcam LED suddenly turned on today. i unplugged it and plugged it back in, but the LED was still on. after a restart it didn't happen again.

i already did a check with windows defender, malwarebytes, hitman pro and hijackthis. combofix doesn't seem to run on windows 8.1. i haven't found anything suspicious.

i also checked which process used my cam/mic using process hacker and process explorer. no process was using them.

there are no open ports on my router and i'm using the windows firewall.

in addition to that, i have checked which files were modified today, again, nothing suspicious.

the only software i have installed recently were updates to steam, skype, origin and firefox. i wasn't browsing any potentially malicious sites, either (i think). just Cred Forums and some torrent trackers. i run ublock origin and umatrix.

another weird thing is that firefox reverted to version 43 and had to download the latest version again. my profile config was fucked in the process, but the update installed fine.

have i been owned or am i being paranoid?

If your phone doesn't autodetect your network settings, like text phone and/or data don't work out of the box, you may have to go into your mobile network settings and configure the APN.

I have a laptop bought, windows 10, came with a 1-year Office subscription and antivirus that expired a month ago or so. I need windows only software (3D modeling, mostly) for both school and work, however I enjoy Linux based OS for my day to day usage (dual boot on my desktop, and is my main OS on an old laptop).

Is there a way to keep my legit license, format, dual boot and reinstall/reactivate my license?

Or am I better off using MyDigitalForums toolkit?

The office subscription may be more tricky if you don't have an online account for it, but the windows license itself would reactivate automatically, so you don't even need to worry about it. You could even keep your existing installation if you felt like it, as it's preferable to have windows installed first anyway, and just shrink it to make room for linux.

Yeah that's a remarkably sparse listing (even for amazon), but as a general rule you can always assume that an 'unlocked' phone is not compatible with Verizon or sprint unless it specifically says so. So your choices would be At&t, t-mobile, or one of their MVNOs.
