is it a botnet?

desktop is way too easy, android sounds like it could be sketchy though since you never know what you're actually downloading with a cracked app.
I only search for them on relatively trust worthy repos and always check the comments before downloading. Haven't had any problems yet using Mobilism
What's supposed to be wrong with that statement?
Not sure never used iOS or whatever it's called.
You can get termux and download the github pkg, then download a spotify python adblocker. It works for me. Only downfall is that it wont skip, but just close and start again.

Hey guys
Googled around and found somewhat similar issues with some resolutions but not mine directly.
Swapped to a new PSU (500W to 750W) and only one of my 4 drives will show up. I can rotate that one SSD to each sata port no problem using the same connections as my other 3 drives.
This one SSD is the only one to give my system any reaction. It says its SATA ports are all empty except whichever one that cable is plugged into. I know the SATA cables all work because I rotated it between them.
I have an MSI z97 Gaming from a few years ago. Kind of perplexed here on the issue. The cables all test fine and ports test fine. I didnt use any old cables for the new drives, all new power cables from the new PSU.
Curious if you guys have encountered anything like this im at my witts end!!
Did you try using different power connectors on your PSU? If modular, did you try plugging in a separate cable? If all else fails, go back to the 500w PSU. If everything is working normal take that 750w PSU back and get something different.

All the cables are fine because the one hard drive that works through SATA cable swaps works fine. Its just the 3 other drives not showing up.

The 500W is not working at all, It just shuts off randomly when any load is put on it.

Got an Asus q550lf with a bad heatsink fan. Couldn't lube it because it's blocked off with some metal.

I'm tech savvy but I'm not going to replace the entire heatsink on a $200 Asus.

Any way I can stop the loud fan? Even rigging it is cool.
As a general rule, always more lube. Once you get going you won't be paying no attention to the fan. Just careful with the metal.

Use PasVulkan
Never used d3d but apparently it has better API design. Keep in mind that if you use directX you wall yourself off from the rest of the platforms. After using OpenGL for doing a skeleton animation, I've got to say that it kinda sucks. The API is a giant state machine. This makes it so that you have to write tons of code just to manage and maintain state. There are newer opengl features that remedy this problem but its too little too late. There are like 4 or 5 different versions of opengl that have variable support across platforms. So if I write code in opengl that I want support on all(lets say android) devices then I've gotta use the crappy version of opengl all because khronos couldn't get their shit together earlier.
programing in now a waist of time.
Yes, Vulkan is verbose as fuck and you need to write a shitload of boilerplate, but it allows an insane amount of control compared to OpenGL.

So, what's the verdict on LTSC 2019?

Is it worth upgrading from LTSB 2016 considering you will need a clean reinstall?

I haven't had any issues so far, and it is noticeably faster.
That's not ltsc
It has bugs that Microsoft saying will not be fixed. Tgey are abandoning LTSC, this is the last one.
All versions have that bug, wait for the fixed iso to release

> SysRq + REISUB is the official Linux kernel emergency soft reboot thing.

That's cool as fuck. I'm going to see if this works after the 2nd crash.

>The xorg one probably.

/var/log/Xorg.8.log{,.old} shows that X is loading the nvidia driver and bumblebee nvidia config files. Wasn't the intel driver supposed to handle X? IIRC the nvidia GPU works on a hidden X server and copies the graphics to the main one; am I reading the wrong log files? There are no other files in that directory though.

They all show successful termination of the X server.

The system was idling at 39 degrees. Is such a thing really to be expected given this state?
>I'm going to see if this works after the 2nd crash.

I wasn't able to get this to work on my laptop. Neither Alt+SysRq+B nor Fn+Alt+SysRq+B force a reboot.
encrypted boot, is it worth it? give me a quick rundown on it's upsides and downsides
I wish terminals would allow you to to set foreground and background colors on each possible combination.
Because it's actually hard as fuck to come up with a color scheme where every color can be read as a foreground of every other color as a background. There's always a few combinations that are unreadable.

But for instance, if I can't read my red-on-magenta combination then it would be really nice if I could tweak either of those colors only for that particular combination.

How many email accounts would /g/ recommend having?

How many and for what purposes (1 personal, 1 for work, another for subscriptions, mailing lists etc.)

Where do you draw the line on how many services should know one email address?

Should they all have the same level of protection? Encryption, long unrememberable passwords?

Maybe a 4th if you need a 4th, but that’s all I use.
One for online friends and signing up for sites I trust.
One for offline friends.
One for family, people I distrust, and signing up for normalfag sites I distrust, like for the bank.
And I'm meaning to delete it sometime, but I still use a fourth for signing up for spam sites, which was originally my previous email for online friends.
70+ yahoo emails for league of legends referrals and upvoting your own images / videos in "public contests" and such
25+ gmails for free storage and drive abuse
10+ aol/hotmails for spam bullshit
half a dozen cock.li for fun ("yourname"@nuke.africa never gets old)
one at your own website for professional shit
What is the most reliable method of storing passwords? Like ive heard encrypted file but if someone gets the master key then everything is gone right?

I would also like something i can back up on 'the cloud' (fucking hate that term) so that in case my house burns down, i can download and decrypt the file to get all my pw's back
Also wouldn't a master password database be useless once decrypted if there was something proprietary on my system (or even telemetry on some FOSS program) reading my files? How would one protect from such a database being read by programs once decrypted?

On a scale of 2X-10X+, how much better would a Pentium M have been for the Xbox 360?

Really should organize the porn into freaky stuff that can't be shared and tasteful stuff that can.
And dump some running instructions on how my server operates and what it's setup with when someone else gets ahold of it without wiping the OS array and putting something else on it.

At least stash something for your NG+
