Anyone recognize this? I had Black Desert Online running and when I tried to access a server the application closed and this popped up. The fucked up sentence structure has me a little nervous. Any chance it's just some kind of third-party shit built into the game, like punk buster etc?

Is there a program that can automatically translate
japanese to english on screen? I'm trying to play a japanese game on pcsx2 an for vital screens (tutorial) I'm having pause the game, whip out my phone and google translate from a picture of my screen. This is naturally kinda annoying. Is there a program that I can have on in the background that can translate a part of the screen automatically?

You're not doing "Japanese to English on screen", you're doing it in your head.

Anyhow, Google Translate can do this pretty reasonably. On your smartphone.

If me doing translations is me doing it in the head, then your smartphone is not doing translations either, it is a program running on it's CPU.

>>62973127
Seriously, you should learn to parse English first. The result of the translation in your head isn't appearing on a screen, is it?

Google Translate's result *is* appearing on a screen. >>62972947 is a crop of a screenshot of Google Translate in action. [There is also a second mode where you can highlight detected moon words.]

My Linux install, on a hard drive, shuts down in like 4 or 5 seconds, and my windows install takes 20 or so. Booting up Linux takes maybe 30, and Windows probably a minute.

>>62964971
I didn't like firefox 3.X because it had insane scroll lag, looping memory leaks, and trashy UI, so I tried opera.
I didn't like opera because it became chinkbotnet, so I tried vivaldi. I then decided that vertical tabs was a necessary feature for me which ruled out chromium.
I didn't like vivaldi because the GUI sucked CPU and was google botnet and vivaldi botnet. So I switched back to firefox (with vertical tabs addon) in hopes that the above complaints would not apply this time around even though I suspected they would because every other browser option was shit. Needless to say, it's still the same shit. So now I'm using vivaldi.

>My computer was getting its third diagnostic test in 45 minutes. The problem was not that its logic board was failing, that its battery was dying, or that its camera didn't respond. There were no mysteriously faulty innerworkings. It was the spacebar. It was broken. And not even physically broken — it still moved and acted normally. But every time I pressed it once, it spaced twice.

>“Maybe it's a piece of dust,” the Genius had offered. The previous times I'd been to the Apple Store for the same computer with the same problem — a misbehaving keyboard — Geniuses had said to me these exact same nonchalant words

>“Hold on,” I said. “If a single piece of dust lays the whole computer out, don't you think that's kind of a problem?”

>therein lies the problem — when dirt does get in, it cannot get out. A piece of dust is capable of rendering a butterfly switch nonfunctional.

>Apple quietly put up a page with instructions expressly to try and help people with dead butterfly switch keys.

>Another Genius explained to me that he had seen an overwhelming number of the computers with keyboard issues, the spacebar in particular — while some keys can be very delicately removed, the spacebar breaks every single time anyone, including a professional, tries to remove it.

>One involves the Genius pressing every single key on the keyboard to see if the switch is responsive, a test I am told was added in response to the sheer number of keyboards coming back broken. The process takes an hour.
