Based on that most SBC computers (that use real ARM CPUs) are still barely able to do that, I don't think it's anywhere near. Maybe some old/retro OS designed for the microcomputers of the 80s/very early 90s could be made run on this with acceptable speed, but anything after that, not really.

I don’t think something exists in the vein you are looking for otherwise that isn’t chinkshit the Xiaomi with a 3060 ultraslim. The Cleveo oem stuff is from Taiwan and Dell has a few “professional” laptops I have had horrible experiences with.
Toshiba did make an AMD mid ranged laptop but I have never use used that one so no comments as to quality. I think it was 900 ish post tax.
Is there any computer that has multiple CPUs of different architectures? Like both an ARM and an x86 CPU. (Having an embedded ARM CPU in your SSD controller and the likes doesn't count, only if you can use both freely from your OS).
I know that Sony did it with some consoles (they included an extra MIPS CPU, for backward compatibility with PS1 games), but other than that?
>>11964
probably not in a way where they would both be accessible at the same time and share the same resources. the PS1 chip in the PS2 was exclusive, if you started playing a PS1 game i don't think it would use the PS2 chip at all until you restarted the console.
Replies: >>11966

I don't know about PS2, but in Vita, the ARM CPU definitely keeps running after you start a PS1/PSP game (and they use it to emulate the GPU, since they only included the CPU from PS1/PSP). And of course you can always pause/exit the game, and go back to the normal Vita UI.
Heck, there were some exploits for vita, where you had to load a modified savegame in a PSP game, and running in the emulator, using bugs in the game and the emulator they got code execution on the ARM cores.

Replies: >>11974
>>11973
The chips in the DS don't implement subsets of a common ARM version, they implement different versions. People say "ARM CPUs" out there, but in actuality ARM already has 9 incompatible generations of ISAs. This allows ARM to innovate and to clean up, and as a result, the latest ARM is a much better ISA than x64.

The ARM7TDMI CPU implements the ARMv3 ISA. The ARM946E-S CPU implements the ARMv5TE ISA. They can't run each other's code.


The Sega Saturn has "hardware acceleration" for sound, graphics, and more, but it predates the creation of chip designs specifically made for those tasks, so instead it has run off the mill CPUs for that, and you program them in their assemblies like any CPU. For instance, the Saturn's soundcard is actually a Motorola 68EC000, NetBSD still runs on machines that use that as the main CPU.

How do I fixed wine's font rendering for nipponese RPG2k3 games?
easyRPG renders text correctly but either can't play back nipponese .wav files or has trouble parsing the filenames for some reason while the RPG_RT.exe via wine doesn't.
The easyRPG website has an old guide for disabling font smoothing in Wine but it does nothing.
There's still the option of pulling out the ever-reliable Japanese Win98 VM, but that seems somewhat inappropriate for a game that first released in 2015.

In most cases downloading the appropriate CJK fonts with winetricks/your package manager and setting LANG=ja_JP.UTF-8 in your CLI before running wine or the game, things like DirectX and other dependencies should work fine regardless of language.
In case the game has weird font autism grabbing a font off of an old Japanese Windows disk image can suffice in some cases, but if the game has deep set autism in the form of Shift-JIS character encoding then I have no clue as that locale seems objectively cursed outside of Windows with only ((( Red Hat ))) supposedly having a paywalled Enterprise solution no one's seemed to have any interest in pirating.
That said I do believe Wine does some internal conversion between SJIS and UTF-8, RPGツクール2000 for example came out during a time when SJIS was the dominant Nipponese character encoding standard yet it has no issue reading filenames and paths encoded in UTF-8 through Wine.

Any game with lolis in it that's not an explicit eroge or solely adult-oriented visual novel/hentai strategy autism affair.
Children in vidya and RL don't know many 漢字 so they sparingly use them, this can be helpful for learning when both a kid and an older or more knowledgeable Kanji-using character talk about the same subject.
As for individual games, off the back of my head there's 海底囚人's RPGM games which are perfectly family friendly affairs with moderate amounts of 漢字 usage where nothing bad happens.
RPGM games in general are plentiful and due to their toaster nature can be made to work even through unorthodox methods, however I don't know much beyond anything listed on one of the many charts passed around old 8chan as I primarily emulate 6th gen console games for that time period.

Unfortunately it's not that easy, unlike corefonts. microsoft didn't release CJK fonts for free, so you have the various winetricks fakejapanese_* fonts, but they're substituting the microsoft fonts with some random free fonts. Works in some cases, but many games have texts manually positioned, and if your replacement font is one pixel wider/taller/narrower/whatever, it can break down easily.
With older games you also have the problem that they expect bitmap fonts which these replacements lack, freetype will try to render some bitmaps in this case, but you'll end up with vomit like in >>11980.

Almost everyone other than win9x and apps written against the win9x ansi apis (which actually include 99% of nip software because they can't code) use unicode these days.

They're the same as their western versions gameplay wise, though the OG Nipponese Pokeman games actually released as Red and Green in February 1996 with Blue coming out in October of that year.
The Final Faggotry games while overrated don't objectively shit themselves until the Square-Enix ((( merger ))), past that point there's still a number of excellent-to-okay spinoff titles before it descends into autism and western poz during the 7th generation.
There's also the DQ games which didn't get natively ESG'd until recently, but I'm less familiar with those and if you don't like them either the SFC has such a massive load of JRPGs and SRPGs that were never released elsewhere you should be fine assuming you have a no-intro set like a civilized man.

I don't have a device to test, but I'd move the subtitles filter to the beginning of the chain. Right now it tries to add subtitles after moving the frames to the GPU, and I'm pretty sure that's not supported.

That did it, thank you!
is LMDE 6 "faye" a viable distro for my now refurbished laptop? the specs are pretty decent enough for office usage and some simple editing.
i seriously dont feel like installing another generic ubuntu copy next to my 2 mini PCs given canonicals past actions and the JEWkraine BS.
should i just use plain debian over linux mint these days which one would give me more bloat? i need something stable for long term usage.

will the cinnamon desktop environment cause problems for MX150 with proprietary drivers? last time this really made my old computer glitch out and freeze unitl i force reboot it. but after testing again in in this PC vbox performance was very snappy and i no longer get that pesky "software rendering" warning.

assuming everything works out just fine without any issues so far. would it be a good idea to assign firefox to my iGPU only and dedicate chrome on the nvidia card while using both browsers simultaneously on my dual gpu setup? i really dont want unexpected crashes also why did chromium devs remove support for VA-API? i was just testing out graphics then the cpu spiked to 75 percent.

this one is really important but would double sided SSDs die off faster or risk frying the motherboard? i really despise whoever designed this laptop for me? for some reason faggot engineers literally had to put the heating LPDDR3 ram UNDER the m2 slot of among all the places without even connecting the VRAM to the heat pipes? and why the hell did they not choose traditional soldered ddr4 over this despite the "light gaming" profile they intended it for?
can someone reccomend me a reliable budget single sided 2280 drive? am i better off just purchasing a replacement SK hynix ssd as my old one failed but thankfully still accessible on enclosure PHEW!

Been thinking about this for a while, how can I host a web application while providing verifiability, to remove the need of trust?
For example, say I decide to host an omegle replacement. I claim no logs is collected and give link to source of hosted code. That doesn't mean I can't be honeypotting users.
Only thing I can think of is some sort of read-only access to the infrastructure of the host for visitors to verify if the host is trust worthy. The downside is potential security exposure, if any part of the system is vulnerable, it will be known and exploited fast.
Any other ideas? Or is this a fool's errand, as the underlying hardware can be compromised anyways and the only way is p2p?
Replies: >>12173 >>12180

>read-only access to the infrastructure
Then put the honeypot into a router in front of your computer. Or if it's a VM, onto the host. Or create a copy of the whole shit, one with honeypot, and one with access. There are countless ways to fuck up your visitors. And even with p2p, you'll have glownodes sooner than later, and depending on how well your decentralized system is designed, feds will start scraping data as much as they can.

This is evil bit tier nonsense. You ssh in and do md5sum /bin/bash it can give you any answer it wants. You have no way of verifying any information the server gives you with your "read-only access" so it's worthless.

The problem you are trying to solve is called remote attestation if you want to read more about it. The only solutions work by shifting the burden of trust from the server to a big vendor who uses a hardware backdoor to confirm the server is in the expect state (e.g. Google + TrustZone, Intel + ME, Dell + iDrac). But I'm guessing you don't trust any of these companies anyway.

How the FUCK do I make Firefox NOT automatically put the cursor on the URL bar when I open a new tab? I am using this extension https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/newtab-ext/ to redirect the new tab page to my home page, and I do NOT want the URL bar to be automatically selected. And no, it's not the extension causing it, because when I disable it the URL bar still gets auto-selected on new tabs. Also, I don't have this problem on new windows.
I've heard this extension "New Tab Override" has an option to not automatically focus on the URL bar, but I cannot trust it.

It's a technology that can be used to implement backdoors if you want to be autistic about it. It allows the chip vendor to run code at the highest privilege level without you being able to observe what it's doing or stop it. It's like you are in a virtual machine and they control the hypervisor.

But you're not forced to use ((( that ))) vendor. Linux, OpenBSD, NetBSD (and probably others) doesn't even use TrustZone.
You could prabably even compile a custom Android or even patch it. Not sure how difficult that would be, but it's surely possible. The ARM doesn't care if you use TrustZone or not, it will run regardless.
However on any recent Intel or AMD, you've got no choice at all. Unless you're some badass hax0r who can figure out how to exploit the MINIX3 fork.

Neither of them show anything really concerning, although your temps seem pretty hot, 50C is often said to be the upper limit before you start getting issues. Vendor implementations for most stats are proprietary so there's only a few you can really interpret, usually that's stuff to do with sector reallocation, for example some people will toss a drive when any of those related values increase.

You have to try it, it's a hit or miss, especially with nip software because no one can in that fucking country code and everything is held together with duct-tape and things break if your computer is not in the nip timezone or your username contains non full width characters or your ip address consists of less than 14 characters or the combined size of your registry is not between 13.5MB and 28.69MB or whatever. Anyway, try running it with LC_ALL=ja_JP.UTF-8. You might also need japanese fonts, winetricks list-all | grep fakejapanese for some options, but generally it's better if you copy the CJK fonts from a real wangblows install, because these free replacement fonts suck.
Opengl is usually not a problem since all wine has to do is to forward the GL calls simply to your linux's opengl implementation. Vulkan is also ok, directx is where problems start, you should definitely check out dxvk, it usually gives you better results except with very old games.

The only other thing I can think of is the breather hole being covered, or maybe WD just tends to run hotter?

Min/Max recommended Temperature:      5/55 Celsius
while for WD it says
Min/Max recommended Temperature:      0/60 Celsius
Based on this it could be a bit hotter, but not 10+C.
I think the only way to get more airflow is to somehow install an extra fan (this is an old ass case with zero chassis fans, a lousy OEM fan on the CPU, and one in the PSU, so things can be definitely improved)

>though drives running at really low temps (like 25 below continuously or something) is also bad for longevity
I don't think that's a realistic scenario in my case.I had <25C for like 1 minute after turning on the computer, after it has been off for more than an hour.

Yeah that's probably why you had those initial temps before moving the drives.

I think it's only a possibility with extreme cooling setups, a typical tower setup is unlikely to reach that kind of thermal efficiency.

Is it true that if I don't use a VPN but only use a secure DNS like dns.mullvad.net, my ISP will only know what websites I'm visiting but not the specific URLs?
Eg. they know I'm on Gelbooru but they don't know I'm on gelbooru.com/tags=forced-toothbrushing

>LMDE
Linux Mint Debian Edition has been always a dumpster fire for me. Install the standard Linux Mint Mate version or Xubuntu (or Debian with Xfce4 or Mate DE and upgrade to testing). If you don't want SystemD, I recommend Void Linux glibc version.

>should i just use plain debian over linux mint these days which one would give me more bloat?
Debian definitely has much less bloat than Mint or *Buntu. Also consider disabling suggested and recommended  packages (2 different things) in APT config.

>will the cinnamon desktop environment cause problems
In my experience, Cinnamon is the least stable major Linux DE. Mate and Xfce4 just works(Tm).

Your ISP can see IP addresses, DNS requests to their DNS servers and the content of unencrypted connections. The only way they could attempt to identify which pages you visit on an encrypted website is by measuring page sizes, then comparing that with the amount of data you downloaded per request.
>>12246
If you want to see for yourself download a program called wireshark. It captures all the packets coming in and out of your machine. Whatever data you see in wireshark is what you isp can see.

Okay, I don't know what's going on. Turn off the computer, plug the HDD into a different port on the mobo, boot it -> it's even worse. Take out the HDD, connect it to some random usb<->sata converter I have lying around -> works fine. Put it back into the computer -> still ok. Still no error logged in smart. What is even dying now?

I had a drive with this problem before, either it's somewhere in the chain (cable, mobo, PSU) or the drive's PCB is going bad. Try running it from the USB converter for a while to see what happens, putting it in another machine could help rule out mobo problems.

mobo sata controller is failing.

You could work around the problem by using an add-in card.
But you'll have to change out hardware because you're not going to fix that with software.

Does anyone know if Google dorks actually work on Searx? The only operators I've got working reliably are site: and - (the NOT operator). I'm not sure other operators work or are even supported; for instance, I tried using & (logical AND) between two keywords but it matched the character literally (i.e. an ampersand highlighted in bold in the site's description) instead of matching only sites that have both keywords; I tried using wildcards too but it's the same situation.
Replies: >>12344
>>12342
I think searx just forwards whatever you type into the search bar to the search provider. The problem is that if you have multiple search providers selected, it's possible that they'll interpret them differently.
Also, I think in jewgle you need to use AND (in uppercase) to get and, not &, but I could be mistaken.
Replies: >>12345

I want to save an image but I can't download it normally. The download link breaks without tons of headers and JS bloat (meaning downthemall and the like won't work), and there's 50 layers of further JS bloat to prevent selecting the image and downloading it normally which would fix the header problem. I'm able to turn the hex into a file once it goes to cache but getting the right image on cache can be extremely finicky. Taking a screenshot is also an option but it's not ideal for jpegs. 
Is there a way to tell your browser to take an already loaded image and save it to disk without redownloading the image from the source?
Replies: >>12398 >>12427
>>12397
Maybe developer console -> network tab -> image -> preview -> right click -> save. Or just right click on the request, copy as curl, and you'll end up with a long ass curl command line with all the cookies and headers you need. Or copy image as data uri and manually decode the base64. Or copy all as har, and you'll end up with a big ass JSON with every request, you just have to base64 decode the response. Or go to the inspector, find the image, and you'll be usually be able to get the image out of it somehow in the right-click menu. The available options and exact menu locations differ slightly between browsers.

That doesn't work, it just tries to redownload the image url, which doesn't work if the url isn't publicly accessible. 
>Or copy image as data uri and manually decode the base64.
But that works. It's surprising how that's somehow the least clunky way to get files that already are in your browser out of the browser.
If I have a video that wasn't downloaded sequentially (e.g. torrents) and has some empty spots in the file but is still able to be decoded into video and have some parts of it play. Is there a way to tell ffmpeg to automatically discard the trash data and take all processable video segments and concatenate them into a single file or save them into multiple files? 
The  -err_detect ignore_err flag just spits out the video as is without removing the invalid/missing frames.
>>12420
Try playing the file (in mpv or similar) and write down the timestamps where each "chunk" starts and ends, then using ffmpeg trim the video at the timestamps you wrote without re-encoding (-c:v copy)... That might be what you need.
Replies: >>12422

Well, you could use a text to text and a text to image model, feed the same prompt to both, and hope they spit out something that's not completely unrelated. But if you want to run them on your own HW, you'll probably only be able to run them sequentially, not parallel, due to their insane memory requirements.

I think his problem is the HTML/webshit part, not the QT, and given that most dictionaries are made in HTML these days, it will be hard to get rid of. Stardict is also HTML. (I have some very rudimentary script that removes HTML from sdcv output for use inside emacs, but it's far from ideal)

I guess those people are the ones who wrote the UNIX Hater's Handbook, so you should probably read that to understand their POV.
I didn't read the book, because I hate everything except for 8-bit computers. So I don't care about their mainframes or Lisp machines or whatnot.
I want to build a cloud at home. Basically a way for different devices to sync stuff, but only in the local network. The cloud needs to have redundancy to store files like family photos. What software and hardware do I need?

I was thinking a NAS with two hard drive slots and running some cloud software should do the trick. TrueNAS as the OS, NextCloud as the cloud software. As for the hardware, I need something in a small form factor, like those Synology NAS devices there were being shilled a while ago, but without the proprietary OS. I know a NAS is just a computer with a special OS, but I don't really want have a bulky PC tower taking up space when a small bock inside a closet is what I really need.

Does any of this even make sense or am I off in my assumptions?
Replies: >>12520 >>12521
>>12518
I just use syncthing to sync the important stuff between my computers, there you have automatic redundancy. NextCloud's sync was utter crap when I checked it, but it was 5+ years ago, not sure if things improved since then, but with syncthing you don't need a central always-on computer.
I also have a NAS-like box with btrfs raid-1, plus I regularly backup important stuff to an external HDD. Don't know anything about small form PCs, I just have a regular PC (with a 4-port ethernet card, so it also works as a router) in the corner...

A central place to store stuff.

>>12520
The issue with syncing through syncthing is that it keeps devices in sync, but the entire process is limited to the weakest link of the mesh. What I mean is, supposed I want a place to store all my photos. If there are more photos in total than there is space on a device (e.g. phone), then syncing won't do my any good.
Replies: >>12524 >>12525
>>12523
You can make multiple folders and only share certain folders with certain devices. Also there are sync filters. For my phone I have a folder and I only sync that one folder to my phone, plus some sync filter so I don't download all photos to my notebook.
But of course, any kind of syncing solution will have problems if you want to sync more shit than the free disk space you have. Alternatively if you only want to store shit at one place, just set up a network drive (and a wireguard VPN if you need to access it from outside your LAN).
>>12523
That is different from syncing stuff. Anything can do, ftp, samba, nfs, sshfs.

Anons I have a strange problem with RetroArch on GNU/Linux.

One fine day in early December I git pulled and recompiled as usual, but accidentally forgot to test the binary before make installing.
The binary I installed ran, but upon launching any core with any shader the shader compilation would fail with a bunch of [/code] [ERROR] [slang]: Invalid #pragma parameter line: "#pragma parameter crt_gamma "Simulated CRT Gamma" 2.5 1.0 5.0 0.025".[/code] in the verbose CLI output.
After trying a bunch of random shaders and cores I figured some Tranny had dilated itself again and reverted the git repo to some mid-November commit which was around the time I'd last compiled RA which at that point had no problem compiling and displaying slang shaders, but perplexingly enough the "new" builds still had the same issue.
I then tried GNOME's wayland desktop and got the same result, but on KDE and GNOME's X11 session the shaders compiled and displayed just fine.
Now I normally would just the X11 session to emulate my Vidya, but unfortunately RetroArch's VSync on KDE X11 is unusable on Cores that utilize CD-ROM images, it crackles and syncs like ass and it the case of PSX cores also tanks performance for no reason while on Wayland those cores with shaders VSynced perfectly.
It works on GNOME X11 but GNOME is hideous.
Glancing over the slang and GLSL specs a bit the #pragma parameter lines in the shader files seem to be within spec, I considered some problem with a dependency but my last update of spirv-tools, spirv-cross and libglslang (which I suspect to be culprits but don't know) then was sometime in October back when RA ran just fine.

I don't have the shekels to buy a real CRT and don't have enough computer to run Flycast at 1080p with 32-layer OIT for proper grafics, what do?
Have since updated KWin, amdgpu, spirv and my Kernel but the issue still persists, though 1 in 10 boots it decides to just werk and compile shaders with no issue.
Happens on both the glcore and vulkan driver backends, plain GLSL shaders under gl are also broken with some FBO issue but I haven't used that backend since the glcore merger.

Full blown telemetry was added in later updates, prior to that I think it was mostly limited to activation checks.

Proprietary mod that could have anything hidden inside, still has features like Defender which have telemetry.
>Windows 10 AME
Open source mod so you can see the changes being made, tries to remove as much as possible but since it's still Windows 10 there may be lingering spyware.
>Ubuntu
Has had a couple controversies in the past relating to data collection, since it's FOSS you can disable or remove things you don't want and be 100% sure that they're gone.

I need a Windows VM for Windows programming, all I need is to be able to run MSYS2 and MSVC. Which has lower hardware reqs, ReviOS or Ameliorated?

ReviOS has a page with the memory usage: https://revi.cc/docs/faq/before/requirements/

I looked into the source. Can you recompile with debug symbols and run with gdb, break at
//gfx/drivers_shader/glslang_util_cxx.cpp
127             int ret = sscanf(
128                   line, "#pragma parameter %63s \"%63[^\"]\" %f %f %f %f",
129                   id, desc, &initial, &minimum, &maximum, &step);
?
Run the line and check ret, it will tell you why it thinks the number of parameters are incorrect.
This problem has nothing to do with other dependencies, so upgrading or downgrading your system shouldn't change things.

What does ret says? The function will be ran multiple times, aim for the time when you know the error will occure. Print ret for each instance, cont if nothing is wrong.

ret returns the current function immediately. That's why you don't see errors. This probably broke subsequent shader compilation.
You should set the breakpoint, list the code when it's triggered. Then, "next" and "print ret". If ret is 5 or 6, then "cont". Otherwise report the number and see what's wrong.

The short answer is no. Programs in general, regardless of the language they were written in, operate within the limits imposed on them by the OS. Truly dangerous actions are not permitted so you can't brick your hardware...
You can brick your software though, for example if you write a program that wipes hard drives, but even that has to go through the OS first (sudo / run as admin).

Well, there were some uefi crap motherboards that could be bricked by writing crap to efivarfs on linux... But you could do that from a shell script too, you didn't need C for that.
>made me use Go instead
You're a fucking stupid nigger gorilla. Enjoy your jewgle telemetry.
>>12587
Any language can brick your hardware. All you need is hardware with some flaw that can cause it to break and the API to access it. 

SoCs these days all have something called GPIO pins which can be made to send any signal at any voltage (within some limits) by software so companies can connect any hardware they want using them. It's not uncommon for companies to wire up hardware to the GPIO pins that breaks if you set the pins to maximum voltage. Software can very much break hardware in the present day.

The guy who ported OpenBSD to Octeon says he fried several RAM kits while writing a driver to set the voltage because on those machines it's done by the OS and not the firmware, and the hardware in charge of this uses a unique voltage unit he had to figure out.

Use which pcsx2 to find the path to the pcxs2 binary.
Use ldd /path/to/pcsx2 to find all the libraries it needs and where it expects to find them.
Wherever it thinks libfmt.so.9 is is probably not there.
You can do find /usr -name libfmt.so.9 to find where it really is and then copy it to the path pxsc2 expects. That would be the most ghetto way to fix it.

If it already does exist in the path that ldd says pcsx2 is looking for it then it is a more complicated problem like you suggest but try that first.

If you get tired of debugging it then you can cheat by installing pcsx2 via flatpak

A malicious/incompetent bootloader can do more damage to hardware than anything running in userspace (which is the point of this subthread >>12587).

Now regarding the issue:         libfmt.so.9 => not found

ldd shows where it will load the library from, not where it expects to find the libraries.

Is this because you have libfmt.so.10 installed? You might need to figure out how to install an older version. If you can find the correct version of the library then you can export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/path/to/library/dir then run ldd to confirm that the correct library will be loaded, then run the program.

Yep. Successfully compiled an older version of fmt.
Couldn't figure out how to download older slackbuilds from that site https://git.slackbuilds.org/slackbuilds/commit/libraries/fmt?h=15.0&id=ef9767b019e7c084ba8eec4c645ec1cbacaa817e&context=3&ignorews=0&dt=1 (I thought there had to be some archive or something?) so I had to manually edit the correct version number in the fmt.SlackBuild script and download the appropriate sources.  
I just remembered that I did the same thing a while ago. 
The maintainer hasn't upgraded the PCSX SlackBuild for over a year. And I'm too dumb/lazy to fix it. I remember already trying half a dozen versions of pcsx2 that would compile with those outdated libraries. What am I doing with my life.

In Chrome, at least, you can get around the HSTS error by typing this with the focus on the error page:

thisisunsafe

No spaces, no quotes.  It will load the page as HTTP only, with the angry red text in the address bar.  This seems to have been created as a workaround for the devs to use in testing and left in.

It works in some Chrome-derived browsers like Chromium but I haven't tested it in Edge, or any of the others.  I'm not sure how you get around the HSTS error in Firefox.

Half the time, of course, when I do this, I can see the page.  The other half of the time it gives a different message, "this instance has been rate limited, try again later."  It always eventually works but sometimes it takes a few hours or even a day or two to reset.  Sometimes I get to see the spicy post,   By the time I can get through, sometimes it says "this tweet not found."  It's annoying, but not annoying enough for me to be willing to make a Twatter account and dox myself to the crazies who work there.

I'm unaquainted with web security/hosting but how much can it be accounted for from the user's filesystem? If I have a site that I only intend for me to post stuff on, and I mount the partition containing the data for the site as read-only: is it secure (unless my entire computer is somehow compromised)? If not, then why? What about a filesystem which itself is inherently read-only; such as squashfs.

>system froze and I had to forcibly shut it down. Rebooting, my display settings were somehow reset.
It's possible that the filesystem/some files corrupted during the force shutdown. What file system do you use?
Also as others mentioned, repacks can have ridiculous hw requirements during unpacking, it's possible that it just overloaded your system so much it broke (intel drivers are known to crash the kernel when you run out of memory, and generally when you run out of memory and the kernel starts swapping, it will slow down to a crawl, sometimes taking minutes to respond to a keypress). Unless you're on a dial up connection, you're usually better downloading a normal version, than waiting 2 times the download time for the repack to unpack, provided it doesn't kill your computer in the process.

Hmm, in my experience due to it's COW nature, it usually just reverts back to a previous version of recently modified files when not unmounted cleanly, but depending on when and with which method whatever you use saves the graphics settings, it can still corrupt it if you're unlucky enough, I guess.

It's not that dangerous if you read the datasheet carefully and don't provide too much voltage. Software wise you might be able to access the internal programmer with flashrom to read the image like you can on some Thinkpads, but there's a good chance that won't work. Otherwise you could try the AMI Bios Tools which are often used by people to mod their gaymer board firmware for one reason or another (not sure if you can make dumps with that though).

It runs it as your normal user. I doubt you can do what you want but you could try adding WinXP or whatever to __COMPAT_LAYER. Every user on XP and older has privileges that only admin has on Vista+ and programs made for those OSs operate under that assumption.

At any rate, it seems to not have worked. To make sure it wasn't due to personal blunder, I tested it with regedit and it does indeed run as the current user. I tried adding `WINXPSP2` to the variable to run the program in compat mode but it doesn't do so for some reason.

Does that mean sdd is dying? But that's an external usb disk, I have no idea why it stopped the boot process for that long. But now it booted and it looks like it's kinda working again, but doing a read test in whdd on sda (an SSD) is pretty weird, it gives me ridiculous read speeds (6167667 kb/s on sata), and the screen updates once every 5 seconds or so.

That's all superstitious nonsense. All you had to do was run procmon and confirm what user account is attached to the running process. Not that that's the end of it. It could also just be that it is calling a privileged API which used to be open to everyone and then got locked down post-Vista when Microsoft started making an effort on security.

It's a 10 year old mid-high end PC, it's not exactly low wattage and finding reasonably priced hardware for it is effectively impossible if I don't want to risk getting a half dead CPU. 
If I'm already going to buy a new CPU and motherboard just to use the ram I might as well go for a cheaper prebuilt machine.

>a new CPU and motherboard
Well, that won't support DDR3, unless by new you mean 8 years old used HW. Most SBCs have RAM soldered to the motherboard, also not changeable. If you don't want to deal with old HW your best bet is to just sell the extra RAM sticks.

That's what I meant. I'll either have to effectively build a new computer (from old and used parts) just to use the RAM, which is going to be extremely time consuming and costly depending on how lucky I get with sellers, or try for something prebuilt. 
Are there seriously no consumer grade, low wattage systems that support extra RAM sticks? 
>sell
I don't really have anyone to sell it to and I don't want to deal with the fuckery of online markets.

thanks a lot for the effort, it's not really what I was thinking of unfortunately. I wanted the chinks to automatically adjust the size according to the position on the circle. sorry for not being very concise.

top_cylinder = 97.5;
buttom_cylinder = 87;

module chinks(outer,inner){
union(){
    difference(){
        cylinder(h=20, r=outer,center=true); 
        cylinder(h=20.1, r=inner,center=true); // negatives Objekt

    }
}
}

module alignChinks(num) {
    for (i = [0 : 10 : num]) // von 0 bis num wiederholen
        chinks(i+4,i); // outer, inner


}





difference(){

union(){
    cylinder(h=5, r=top_cylinder, center=true);
        translate([0,0,5 -0.001])
            cylinder(h=5, r=buttom_cylinder, center=true);
        
}

    alignChinks(70) ; // num: anzahl an chinks
    
    translate([-55,0,2.5])
        cylinder(h=10.1, r=10,center=true); 

    translate([-60,0,2.5]) // Greifloch
        cylinder(h=10.1, r=10,center=true); 

}


translate([0,0,2.5])
    cube([10,170,10], center=true);

difference(){
    translate([-60,0,2.5]) // Umrahmung für Greifloch
        cylinder(h=10, r=22,center=true);

Is there a reason all browsers redownload already downloaded files when saving instead of just taking them from memory?

>after a couple minutes they all opt for redownloading
It depends on the headers sent by the server. If there is no (or bad) cache-control header, the browsers will have to assume that the file might had changed and has to be reloaded. I guess you don't want to get a week old copy of the board index or a thread when you click on the link, right?
And also as >>13021 mentioned, browser caches have finite size, and when it's full, old elements are removed, even when the cache header would still allow storing it. Also in incognito mode you have significantly smaller cache (it will be mostly limited to memory and not disk cache for obvious reasons), so it's possible that just a few high-resolution image would fill it. And above a certain size browsers also doesn't cache.

I understand why it works this way when you access files or when the cache expires, but it also works this way with media files that are still in the cache. 
Let's say you open an image in a new tab. The tab is just the image. After a short amount of time (I said a couple minutes but I've seen this happen effectively instantly at times) the browser will just assume you want to download a different image and not allow you to save the file in the cache. The file is still being displayed on the browser, if you access the cache you can see the entirety of the binary file is still there, yet you don't even have the option to retrieve it rather than request the server for what could reasonably be assumed (given the user hasn't refreshed the page) to be the same media file.
Replies: >>13024
>>13023
Yes. Just because you have a downloaded file open, it doesn't mean that it becomes locked and unmodifiable on the server. Let's suppose you open a news site, keep it open, then a day later, you open the same site again in a new tab (while the old one is still there). What do you expect to get, yesterday's or today's news?
Browsers can't fix retarded webmasters. (But can cause a lot of retardedness...)
Replies: >>13025

There is no difference between a media file and html, as far as caching is concerned. A media file can be updated too, not just html files.
>media files on download
You mean things like right click image->save as? Dunno, probably they didn't bother to implement special logic for that rarely used feature. Just because the image is loaded in the memory it doesn't mean it also has the original compressed png/jpg/etc.

I just tried, and when I fullscreen the game, the virtual desktop disappears and the game just becomes a window in my host WM. When I put it back on windowed mode, I get back to the virtual desktop.
My WM is Openbox, and the game is Touhou 8 if that matters. (I haven't tested other games and I would prefer to not do it, I can't really trust a lot of Window executables other than this Touhou series torrent)

What removing the battery does is delete any temporary settings the firmware didn't save to its flash chip. It's not impossible that some program running at the Operating System level fucked with it and left it in a weird state. It could have been the OS itself.

It could also be that the battery is weak and therefor corrupted some of this temporary data. The voltage dipped low and flipped some 1s to 0s or something. Maybe get another coin battery, they're only $3 or something.

I did nothing for a few days, and now I tried to reset my IP, and it worked.
So, I've been pretty well-off lately, and I'm lookin' to build myself a new rig for basically... Everything.

So I have a few questions.

1. What are some good places to buy parts from?
2. How do I ensure Linux compatibility with the parts?
3. I've been on slackware for the longest time, but I have so many weird issues with Wine because multilib on slackware does not seem to play nice with the package manager. On top of this, Sbopkg has basically become unusable for reasons I cannot understand. I'm legitimately thinking of unironically-installing Gentoo because of this, but Slackware just clicks with me more than any distro has in the past fifteen years of distro-hopping.

If you've been using Slackware you might be just fine on Gentoo. Most of the time is spent on manual kernel setup, so you could use Genkernel if you don't want to bother with that.
You should also get used to using Flatpaks or Appimages for packages that you rarely use and not install every TESTING 999 package under the sun since that might result in slot conflicts.
Other than that its been running surprisingly fine on my machine for over a year now.

Otherwise Artix might be the much less time intensive option. Has been running without a single issue on one of my machine for 2 years now, using FDE + butterfs. 

One distro I haven't tried yet is Salix which is "Slackware for the lazy Sklacker". Might be worth trying. I've been thinking on installing it on my chinkpad.

Maybe I just have an inclination to not break my systems on distros which are considered unstable so your mileage may vary depending on which software you use.
>>13175
And hardware wise, most recent hardware will just work fine in my experience.
If you aren't interested in the latest AAA slaps, I recommend getting an old intel board. Something like an LGA1155 and slapping a 12 core or more xeon onto that. There are dozens of youtube budget guides. Just type in something like "budget xeon build" 
For GPU I recommend a used AyyyMD. I'm using an RX5700XT which I got for just 100 shekels. Just make sure to properly stress test it before the buyer protection runs out.
>>13175
Oh and on my nephews PC I have installed Devuan. It's also a very decent distro if you value stability above everything else and despise SystemDick.
You'll have to resort to Flatpaks quite often though since the packages can be very outdated. 
It's propably the most similar to Slackware of all the distros I have mentioned so far.

I also got wine testing to work. You can just use regular Debian repos for many packages.

Docker is unnecessarily complicated. They had a chance to copy FreeBSD jails, yet they completely failed.
Docker networking is completely assfucked. That shit never works for me, so as soon as I see something that uses Docker, I ignore it no matter how neat or able it is to fix one of my problems.
Yet now in 2024, I can fire up a full VBOX VM within 2 minutes with ezpz networking faster and easier than dealing with Docker.

Good luck getting your average user to do that. 
The main appeal of docker is that everyone and their mother maintains containers for their stuff so even the braindeadest of users can get programs to run in a relatively secure environment. Docker is made for casual users (retards) and software engineers working in corporations (retards), and those kind of "developers" use GUIs for this shit.

I have a problem with a build I wanna do: I've gotten the parts I want ($2-3K-ish USD for a high poly-3d-Modelling and gaming rig) and now I'm stuck because I can't decide on a motherboard.

It feels like all of the fucking "big 4" brands (Asus, Asrock, MSI, Gigabyte) are filled with shitty QA practices and/or go out of their way to disrespect the people who buy their products. But then I look up more obscure brands, and it's like.... Nobody fucking reviews or looks into them, at all. if it's not "the big 4," then there is barely any reviews if there are any at all. And then there's the problem with inbuilt-wifi on motherboards nowadays. It's hard to find a motherboard now, that DOESN'T have wifi or bluetooth. I don't fucking need it, I don't fucking want it, I have an Ethernet cable attached to my router. I feel like I'm just removing the ability to airgap if I choose a motherboard with wifi, because there isn't a simple and easy way to say "fuck off" in case someone decides to snoop my shit.

So, what motherboards out there on the market, aren't shit / run by assholes? I know that if have to pick a "safer" motherboard, I may need to redo my entire build from scratch, and it's so fucking hard to find a computer part manufacturer that isn't retarded or jewish, but damn.

There are 2 main reasons.

1 is that they're too ignorant of programming to write a program that is portable to a single system, they program by trial and error. This is very brittle, it can cause breakage when system components update and behaviors change subtly (within the allowed constraints of each API) or when you change distros or something like that. This is why people complain about their programs breaking on newer glibc even though glibc has backwards compat going back a long time, reliance on undefined behaviors or subtle implementation details by trial and error. Docker gives those people a consistent system stuck in a point in time so their bad software breaks less.

2 is that there's a breed of idiot who believes that wrapping an insecure program in bloat makes it secure.
