Ah, that's why the basement fags can't get it.
you need 10 years of experience dipshit

you're thinking of the SSCP
GCIA certs are the only ones that are worth it

Also any of the OffSec stuff from the Kali guys are great
I have it and desu I didn't learn anything from studying for it

literally nobody cares about certs once you have two years experience anyway

certification and 'education' are dead ends, the portfolio is the only thing that's important

Do DNS providers log your DNS queries and sell it to advertising companies?

Can I run my own DNS server on a raspberry pi?

Would it be also faster?
Many of the OpenNIC servers at least say they have a no-logging policy.

You have no way to verify that, you just have to trust them, but its still a strictly better proposition than, say, Google or your residential ISPs, who shamelessly admit that they log DNS queries and actively manipulate their replies to them for marketing and other kinds of privacy invasion.
Yes they do, u can use dnscrypt
>Can I run my own DNS server on a raspberry pi?
>Would it be also faster?
no, much slower.
Cache your most common dns queries. Host file to block google dns.

You're a bigoted piece of shit. Congratulations.
so, how do you sum all prime numbers under 2 million?
first you aquire them
then you add them up
Implement a prime number sieve and keep a rolling sum.
If number <2 million does not leave a remainder add to array
Add array together

Sure, go for it. Dive deep into msdn and windows functions, shell links for instance. Might be your first github record of a neat little project. I am not sure about Java tho in this case. C#/C++ ought to be more suitable.
That can be done in shell scripting or batch.

just buy the watch you like can change the strap.
strap, max 15
replacing it at a store, max 10

be really careful looking for a black case in that price range - you will almost certainly end up with a plated case that will flake/rub off at the slightest touch leaving your case looking awful. You should probably shoot for a black plastic/resin case if your heart is set on black.

Timex has a few watches in their Fairfield and Expedition lines with black cases and leather straps. they seem to have decent reviews but like >>59629253 said most watches in that price range aren't the best, but Timex certainly does cases better than most fashion brands so i'd be optimistic.

A national endowment from the arts to keep updating free, open source word processing software for use in government and academic publishing?

I feel like i am celebrating my own genius with some Jerkins and a box of tissues. C'mon! Somebody assent, contribute, or disagree

Your idea requires the government to specify targets and standards for the work being funded. Can you name a single IT project they've successfully done that?
Maybe you should kick it up to the UN?

Why settle for a national standard when you can have a global one?

Microsoft, in partnership with Google, the International Monetary Fund and the United Nations, is proud to present...
>un standard
>worth anything

Apart from that, trying to make this idea a national standard would be an expensive nightmare. Trying to make it a global one would be a great way to simulate hell for everyone involved.
Its just a government standard, not a national one. You can still use whatever program you like. You just make it so that the government ONLY budgets for this software and anything else comes out a different expense account.

This is the current state of web development.

This is almost like those "enterprise java fizzbuzzes" that people used to make fun off, except nobody's laughing and this is all considered serious and well engineered code design.

even kids these days have iPhones tho
I think you guys are thinking about this the wrong way. We've already done iPhone hoaxes. What's the new cesspool of Apple stuff?

Airpods and dongles. What's an easy way to render the airpods useless? Or break the dongles?

Maybe this time it would be more effective just to inconvenience a bunch of gullible faggots. Perhaps the iphone ship has set sail
This is specially good since Google Photos has been bundled with most Android's for years
Photos are way more important to your average normie than the new leased phone
This is pretty good
I think if we target those with older iPhones and have them do something damaging in order to "speed it up" would be our best bet.

Then you frame it like >>59629114 as a tech website finding a "hack" or whatever.
An iPhone 6 literally burned a plane with 56 people on board, they already blow up but the last STAND of Job's, the RDF, is protecting the brand

No. But perhaps I went somewhere that wasn't retarded. I believe I'm one of the few who truly misses academia because it was so good.
It's hard to do all these things when IT jobs are almost always going to be in the city.

but I can dream.
This sounds like absolute aids. Does this shit exist in other tech related STEM? I'm thinking of doing applies sciences like EE but if this shit is even in the engineering departments maybe I will go against my families advice and just do physics. I already self-teach programming and engineering with MIT's opencourseware and "free" texts books. What do you think /g/?
Engineering is still prone to these problems, though maybe not quite as bad.

But if you do EE or CompE you'll likely just end up working with CS people anyway.
