One of the most important apps to own if you use any rooted Android device. Outside of it's popular use of pirating games or paid apps, it can also get rid of intrusive ads that aren't neutralized by Adguard or Adaway.
doesn't work with spotify anymore senpai. If it's working for you then do not update the app
I don't update. Most patches only work for certain versions. I just patch and disable auto update. Not like I'm missing anything with the updates.

Windows ME is the most unfairly maligned version of Windows. 99% of the people who whine about it either never used it or had shit hardware, similar to the problems people initially had with Vista. It added tons of new features, and is generally more stable than Windows 98 with appropriate hardware and drivers. (Faulty OEM drivers was probably the main problem people experienced back then) My grandma had a gateway with Windows ME and it ran flawlessly, much better than our family's fully updated Windows 95 machine. Go ahead and install Windwos ME in a VM, it's just fine.
>B-but Windows 2000/XP were better!
No fucking shit, 2000 and XP use the NT kernel, ME is DOS-based like 95 and 98. Comparing 2000 and ME is apples and oranges.
>B-but no boot into DOS mode!
This is the only legitimate criticism, but how often were people in 2000 still using DOS programs? Games would have probably started running into compatibility issues at that point due to much faster CPUs and discrete VGA GPUs aren't 100% backwards compatible with CGA and EGA games anyway.

>comparing ME to windows 95 and not Windows 98SE

ya blew it.

ME was a mutant flipper-baby of an OS. Let's never speak of it again.
>Windows ME is the most unfairly maligned
No, it's just maligned for the wrong reasons. In the end it still has Win9x lineage, which makes it utter shit no matter what. 98SE, 98 and 95 were shit too. Only passable because of games compatibility and the average user not knowing anything better.

What the fuck happened?

I bought into USB-C. Making it reversible, i thought they were fixing the main issue with USB plugs.

>No two cables are a alike.
>The cables rather than the devices contain electronics.
>There are a multitude of standards run over them with differing requirements, so you end up with cables bought for a single-purpose, rendering the idea of a universal plug utterly pointless.
>It's actually worse than a bunch of single-use cables, because they all look identical and fit each other despite not being compatible.

How did we regress this far? Is this a deliberate move by vendors to somehow manipulate users? Is it just incompetence or a failure of bureaucracy? Seriously /g/, what the fuck happens and is it going to get better?

Not universal (because of usb-c)
Not serial (because it has multiple serial connections in parallel much like PCIe)
Not a Bus (because it is a fucking end to end Layer based Protocol that uses packets)
>thunderbolt 3 is 40gbps and as such requires very good quality cables
fuck off and stop trying to sell my gold-plated cables you no good lying hook-nosed bastards
This is absolute BS because the samsung cable I have and works on my Soyboy Nintendo Switch and vice versa I use my Nintendo Switch cables to charge my S8.

They may have different strengths but at the bottom they all do the same basic function.
No one is trying to sell you gold plated cables, there is merit in buying decent cables, there was a small epidemic of cheap Display port cables that was otherwise fine with something like 1080p 60hz signals but struggled with higher refresh rates and high resolution even though the display port itself was more than capable.
When your hitting in excess of 20gbps of data a good cable does matter
Kek, then go find me a 40gbps rated thunderbolt 3 cable with 3 meter length

Like clockwork.
1. Spanish is not my first language (as well, as English by the way) (And neither I speak good on it)
2. It is a bad thing to translate terminology, I think. (but it you want it is núcleo).
I just can't wait to inject it, sorry.
(GTK is rubbish, by the way. I don't deny it. GIMP toolkit, that doesn't have thumbnails is just a meh)
Speaking of GTK. I've checked, you need to recompile only one file, libprintbackend-file.so. Include there KDialog, and launch KDialog instead of GTK picker. Ofcourse, make necessary links.
Yes, this hack is dirty, but it might work.

It'll get you through HR The most important thing though is the networking aspect of university.
stay away from the niche ones that will serve no benefit, unless you're really interested in a niche that will severly limit your job search

>algorithm & complexity
no unless you're going to teach
>human computer interactions
>networks & distributed computing
>software engineering
>game design

Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Just on the descriptions alone, these are the only concentrations listed worth a shit: networks, software engineering, and information security. You can get a good job with any of those.
I recommend choosing the one you're most interested in and going for it.

I didn't do a concentration and I regret it desu. I still got a job after graduating, but having a starting specialization in something helps set you apart from the crowd for recruiters, and will give you some useful context for when you start working with professional shit.
Scientific computing is a hard nope imho. That shit will be dominated by math and science nerds that use Matlab and R.

I['m just a lowly laptop repair technician for HP, how can I into certs?


don't do it man. Relevant associate's degree + any kind of respected vendor cert (cisco, Juniper, AWS) is where it's at. Bonus points if you have half a personality and any enthusiasm at all.
how different is Net+ from CCNA? How much more would i have to study?
I've got a few certs. Lucky for me they're all Valid for life and not the Valid for x number of years as is the trend now. Really Cisco is kinda a joke unless you really really want to fool with configuring cisco brand equipment. For everything else networking related that don't involve Cisco routers then Network+ is more than enough along with a bit of common sense. Ethernet is Ethernet, speed will go up, that's about it. It ain't like the old days where you had a mix of Token Ring, Ethernet, or a combo of the two. Long as you don't run the cable lengths over 100 meters or use the wrong grade cable to connect a segment and have 100 megabit vs 1GBps as a result, then you'll be ok. you get the point.
My associates isn't in any IT field and I don't want to deal with vendor lock in.

Is CompTIA really that looked down on?

I have a website I have to use for work education. Portions of the content have coding in them that block copying to the clipboard after "x" amount of times for 24 hours. It doesnt carry over to other browsers, so I know it isn't IP or login based. I mainly just need some way to bypass this to be able to get notes saved. I have already tried turning off javascript and trying to inject my own that worked on previous courses.

It's literally just a 65" 4k panel cut in half horizontally.
Yeah I want 21:9. I have a 29 in ultrawide now. I'm actually ok with the 2560x1080 in this size and just want a higher refresh rate and g sync. But there's not much of those out there, everything is 34 inches. But at that size I don't feel like 1080 is going to look that great anymore. But with my gtx 1080 and an 8700k will I be able to get higher refresh rates anyway at 3440?

A few weeks ago I was drunk and spilled some whiskey on my laptop. Thankfully i awoke immediately and managed to turn it off and unplug the battery right away. I took it to the sink and drained what i could and left it to dry.

After at least two weeks I decided to fire it up to see if it still worked. It booted up fine and is running smoothly except for the keyboard. Most keys are fine but:

3 and 8 on the number pad always types 83
L is F11 (fullscreen)
K is .K
Backspace is backspace + Enter
And a few other random things

I know zilch about laptops. Can this be fixed (cheaply)?

just replace the keyboard, depending on the model it will be $30 - $100 USD, most laptop keyboards can be replaced following youtube tutorials.

Good luck and don't be an idiot next time you drink.

Mozilla suddenly realises Facebook are a bit shady with user data

Mozilla, which makes the popular Firefox web browser, has become the first major organisation to stop advertising on Facebook amid the controversy over the Cambridge Analytica files.

Denelle Dixon, Mozilla’s chief business and legal officer, said it had investigated Facebook’s data controls.

“We found that its current default settings leave access open to a lot of data,” she said, “particularly with respect to settings for third party apps."
