I need a simple brute force program that would help me find someone's phone number via facebook.
When you type the phone number in facebook search bar,it automatically shows profile that it's connected to.
I know 5 digits,and miss 5 more,therefor there are 100000 possible combinations.
Any suggestions on how to go about this?

What if he used a delay?
>>
I might have missread that but if you need 5 numbers that are 0 to 9 thats 9765625 combinations. which means that you practially need to query that much search requests.
Assuming that you wont get flaged as a bot (which you will) you have a network delay.
assuming that the delay is about 0.3 seconds ( dont know the true number) that means that
The search would take 2929687.5 seconds which is 813.80 hours which is about 33 days.
Seems like a feasable task, but if you want to use a delay which would be in the order of seconds that becomes less feasable.
with a 5 second delay the time needed becomes 565.14 days. Still feasable if you are really determined but then agian i assume that 5 second delay is not enough considering the fact that they flag you in accordance to the number of queries per days not seconds. At which point it becomes unfeasable.

>what did he mean by this

Dear /g/

I am an engineering undergraduate who managed to get into an internship at a good software firm. I have the programming skills and know-how in order to succeed there, but as an engineer by education, I feel like I'm missing a certain level of polish and "etiquette".

What are skills and habits that set a professional software engineer apart from an amateur one. ( version control, development franeworks etc?)

I want to use this information to prepare myself. Thanks!

What GPU should I get? 1080p, no VR, 60 Hertz. I generally turn off shit like anti-aliasing, sometimes texture resolution and stuff. I tend to find that a lot of performance is spent on literally fucking nothing. I just want a good cost effective GPU that you would want to buy.
>>
>>61044618
>a good cost effective GPU that you would want to buy.
My personal choice would be the RX 570 then because it's real good value (the best) and still is powerful enough to run the vast majority of 1080p games maxed, though you're gonna have a hard time finding it in stocks
Alternative would be a 1060 3GB but it's not as cheap and has less VRAM. Lower than that and none of the GPU are really good value;

>Not a bad idea, but Vulkan and the open source AMD drivers are removing the performance gap between Windows gaming and Linux gaming.
Plus Windows 10 no longer really natively supports older win32 software and runs it through a compatibility layer similar to Wine.
In some ways Windows 10's compatibility layer is better than Wine, mainly when it comes to D3D11 support, but Wine is already better for older software and catching up on D3D11 fairly quickly.
We'll probably see a situation like what happened with Microsoft's DOS compatibility layer back in the day where everyone just started using DOSbox and eventually Microsoft dropped their shit.

Of course you might find like I did that even with only playing Linux native games you'll have a backlog you can't hope to clear.

>>>380974383
It isn't, but GNU/Linux based OSes are.

For AMD hardware Windows just isn't a good idea anymore. You're stuck with no support for Ryzen on 7, and no options other than the official graphics drivers which are slow and buggy.
Luckily the Linux-exclusive open source drivers for AMD hardware are much faster, more stable, and even have features like native D3D9 support for playing legacy Windows games.

>One of the better games for GNU/Linux. Really exposes just how piss-poor the official AMD drivers are compared to the Linux-exclusive open source drivers.
