Hello 4chan, hoping your knowledge can help me.
Transferred to a new school, and one of the classes require us to take the tests at the testing center using Respondus LockDown Browser.
Is there a way around this browser, can I make them think I'm using the browser yet still be at home minding my own business?
Thank you in advance, any help would be appreciated.
Not sure if this is the correct board.

Does noone here have a monitor that supports the ability to display multiple inputs at once?
Or you could try to mirror a display and see the reflection on the monitor you're using without it showing up on the webcam and with like a USB port switch by your feet to switch computers you wouldn't need to make suspicious movements.
Had to use that shitty browser a few years ago. Debugged with IDA Pro to find how it detects VMs, turns out it looked for a processor name of "VBOX" for Virtual Box. I used a hex editor to find that value in the executable and replaced it with a random value, and VirtualBox worked after that.

At least google won't ban your emails for no reason like mine. I only had them for one day at they got suspended for "spam" when I never even used then, not once.

If you have anything important, don't link it to a Microsoft account.
And IP not being blacklisted... I think there's more. It's a pain in the ass to set up and manage your own email server all while making sure your email doesn't end up in spam. I'd leave it to third party if possible.
It's the exact same thing with the green bubble.

Every day I would come in to work and nobody would talk to me. Outside of work nobody would ever respond to me. Then I realised it's because I got that green bubble

AMD doesn't own have fabrication facilities. And Global Foundries' 14nm Fab 8 is in Malta, New York.
I'm not saying it can't, it just can't as well as Nvidia. Face it, AMD silicon isn't as efficient at competetive clocks, the 580 is literally just a 480 binned for high clocks and it heats up and draws more power out of the box than the 1060 ever did, while delivering similiar performance.

Basically, the whole of computing is encompassed across those 7 layers.
To allow for computing to have come this far, you had to of had a tiered structured and ensured each tier adhered to a standard. The further up you go the less standards and the more messy it gets as its built on increasing lower layers and has less commitments ... This is why web programming is shit tier. It rides on top of everything else and has no dependencies but itself.

For networking (layer 1,2,3,4). The serious weightlifting is at 1,2. Routing at 3. Layer 4 and up is where the shit show begins.

enjoy the bread anon
>SS7 Over IP
>wtf were people smoking when they made network protocols
They were each trying to solve a problem without any Authority to guide them.
All they had was history. Each thought/hoped that their solution would be adopted by The Industry.
IBM came out with the 7-layer model in the early '70s but SNA got tangled up in the usual tribal fighting that was IBM.
That's a gnarly list of information - technical and literature. Why does it makes me feel insignificant and longing so?

Do you count people that can navigate that list with hands or in the millions? It seems impossibly dedicated to be fully versed in technical and literature of the list. Is that list the apex of networking knowledge?

I don't listen to music
Just fucking download flac, You can store a hell of a lot of music on a 2TB HDD so there is really no reason not to. flac is best for archiving and the quality is easier to verify. You need high end equipment to have any chance of discerning flac from v0/320, and even then you're not going to in a lot of circumstances, that's besides the point. v6, however, sounds like dog shit, 128 sounds like dog shit.

The optimal solution is to archive flac then transcode to v0 or v2 for using on shit like your phone where you probably have more limited storage.
Then have a little think. Yesterday I heard a song on the radio that made me want to explore French house so that's what I did, I went and downloaded a few dozen albums, and a whole lot more EPs and mixes. It's really not fucking hard at all, do some research.

Okay, Anon. I'll just go start a few investments with the money you're spending on iCandy.
How am I supposed to make money? Sell it? To who, /g/? Yeah, because /g/ pays for software. I flat refuse to put ads in anything I write, so the only other route for monetization is begging, which I'm not above doing, but I really wouldn't expect anyone to donate for such a simple tool, no matter how convenient it is.

I'm hoping for donations and maybe some support from other devs when I launch the media sharing site though. I feel it has much more potential to be useful to others on a regular basis, and it's a lot more work.

So I'm on Manjaro and want to get the newest version of wine-staging (2.15-1) that was released today.

I found this in the AUR:

But when I "pacaur -S wine-staging 2.15-1", it's not finding it - just the 2.14 version.

Do I need to update my repo somehow or something?

Alternatively, what's the best way to manually update software that's more bleeding-edge than the current AUR package?

On my desktop and servers I've used Debian since 1999 when neckbeards were memeing it hard on IRC and Usenet. By 2002 I had gone full Debian and completely removed Windows 2000. It's one of the comfiest operating systems out there. I also tried Slackware around 2001 but I didn't like it. I used a PowerBook from like 2003 to 2006 alongside my Debian desktop and it was extremely comfy. Then in 2006 I bought a ThinkPad R60 for over $1200 which I still have and use Debian on, until mid 2012 when I got the computer I have now which is a ThinkPad T400 with Libreboot that I used to run Debian on. I've been trying out Fedora on it since late February of this year and I like it just as well as Debian, though I'm seriously considering switching back because I'm not a fan of bleeding edge stuff. I prefer maximum stability and compatibility where I can update once a month or so which Debian provides. With Fedora it's 200-400MB of updates every week or so and I get fucked up packages when I neglect updates for more than two weeks or so.

I suggest sticking with Debian for now. It doesn't get much better. If you want a super secure computer then use OpenBSD. It comes at the expense of software compatibility and ease of use but it's definitely worth it for server and embedded stuff. I have an old netbook running OpenBSD in my closet that I use as a personal email server and it's great. I have a Raspberry Pi cluster that I might migrate to OpenBSD in the future as well.

Definitely use OpenBSD. FreeBSD is pretty retarded because the GUI installer is clunky and half assed and package management isn't very good. It often makes things unnecessarily complex, whereas OpenBSD is made by the devs for the devs, unlike FreeBSD which tries to please everyone and always fails. Don't be afraid of the text installer. It's easier than FreeBSD's graphical installer.

Why do I have to reset my Openwrt firewall to get internet access after a router reset?
Like, I have to add a random character somewhere, then I hit apply changes and then I get internet access, otherwise no internet. Why is that?
/cyb/ people is just attracted to /sec/ as in hollywood movies do /sec/ you type fast some "comands" in the terminal some magic happens, and boom 5 minutes later you are a badass hacker with some cool suite and some unreal smart gadgets.

They won't even go an inform themselves if what they assure it's true, but they'll group up against anyone that says the contrary
I dunno the openwrt firewall applet. I assume you're not just talking about port forwards or something. The thing of openwrt is that it automatically generates settings from configs and if you have to repeat the process sounds like you're changing the in-memory settings vs. the on-disk configs.

it's kinda like that in real life though
