Use your phone or headset to record the audio and not your shitty laptops mic.

Directional microphone.
Wireless microphone and stay away from your laptop
Put your laptop under sheets or something to smother the noise
Record with a low mic volume but speak louder.
Record with your phone, it may surprise you.
First or third party programs to control fan speed, but this is dangerous if you fuck up.

File: 43 KB, 432x146, more like shitty notes.gif [View same] [iqdb] [saucenao] [google] [report]

so windows 10 updated today and for some weird reason the sticky notes app has gotten incredibly slow when i type new stuff.

it does the thing when it slows down and when you let go of the keyboard when done typing, the text is catching up.

i have quite a lot of stuff in the note and when i just create a new empty one it's obviously faster, so i guess that's why but god damn it it was not like that before.

any ideas?

Use a third-party backup tool. As an example, Macrium Reflect Free works great. I use a pirated version for more features.

What you do is you tell the backup program to make a backup of the OS and whatever files you want and make it backup to the NAS. Schedule that shit, maybe use, differential imaging to cut size.

Look up features of the solution you want to use.
Important stuff is:

- ability to backup an OS while its running (via shadow copies or whatever)
- ability to create rescue media
- differential, or better, incremental imaging
- For work-related stuff: encryption

Agreed. I think the push to 4k is overwhelmingly a marketing thing and not worth the extra resources they consume in most situations.

Someone could guess your password with a bruteforce attack just like they got the Hilldawg, and while you can improve your encryption and take steps to change your routers password every month (you do change your router's password every month, right?) it's still an unnecessary risk, when it can be completely eliminated with a simple cheap cable.

My CPU fan has been acting weird lately, when I start my computer it runs normally, but during the course of an hour or two it slows down (once it even "reached" 0RPM, although the fan was still running irl). Also, the CPU temperature sometimes reaches 100°C, but when I touch the case (near the region where the CPU socket is located) it doesn't feel very hot (and I have never experimented with overclocking before, so I suppose the CPU would shut down before reaching such a high temperature, right?)

I am starting to wonder whether the problem lies not in my CPU fan, but on the BIOS/software I am using to measure/read the cou fan speed/cpu core temperature
would such a thing even be possible? How could I find out for sure? And how could I fix it?

Oh, and I started to have problems with my CPU fan a while after one of the Windows 10 updates, could that be somehow related?

any help would be appreciated, if you need clarifications or more information, don't hesitate to ask

Ok, so you are connected to a router somewhere. That's a fact. The question is how many other people are on that same network with you, and thus have elevated access to your shit. If you aren't comfortable with that you can insert your own router into the line to provide you with a hardware firewall, at the cost of some latency in your connection and your nat type being closed.

Dear Senator,

Hello- it's recently come to my attention that at the start of October, President Obama plans to pass control over the internet from the United States to ICANN, and that ICANN will transition into a globally owned entity. This has extreme implications about our first amendment and I believe will jeopardize the ability of internet users to download, upload, and share material in a free way. If any nations hostile to the American constitution were to acquire a sizable share in ICANN, they would undoubtedly start to impose censorship laws on certain materials and websites. This is a concern to anybody who values free speech and transfer of ideas, so please vote against this.

Think of it like this - the file size is determined (normally) by how much information is stored within it. The reason a smaller 1080p video looks worse than a larger one is the larger one (usually) has more colour and sound information than the smaller one.

Your 360p file just doesn't have that information stored in it, that's why it's a smaller resolution and looks like shit. There is no way to make it look "better" unless you consider running a sharpen filter or something to be "better" looking.

Hey /g/
Stupid question for overclocking cpu
So basically what I want to do is start with a voltage, like 1.1, then raise my multiplier until it fails right?
Then when it fails, I raise my voltage.
I rinse and repeat until I got to the clocks I want at a certain temp right?

So for the most part, I ONLY raise my voltage until my overclock fails?
Also what increments should I raise my voltage? .01 volt?

I logged in to an old email account and found a strange message. Apparently someone tried to reset my fitbit.com password twice in the past 24 hours (I don't even remember making an account on this website). I assumed it was a phishing attempt, but maybe I did make an account and just forgot about it.

So I checked "have I been pwned", and apparently 3 accounts made with this email have been leaked (dropbox, neopets? patreon? don't remember those two). This email is old, and I know that I made neopets accounts in the past, but I don't remember using this email address. When I searched my email account I found no messages from either neopets or patreon. When I go to patreon.com and say "forgot password", it doesn't even recognize my email address.

The only thing I can think of to explain this is an error on the part of haveIbeenpwned. There must have been a paste that contained dropbox accounts, neopets accounts, and patreon accounts, and somehow I got lumped in with all of them.

Anyways, what do you thing is going on, and how worried should I be? I know I re-used passwords in the past, but I have no fucking idea on what websites and with which passwords (they were never simple, but I'm still using variations of one of them to this day).
