I'm considering to take Udemy courses, now that there's a Black Friday sale that makes them cheaper.

What precautions should I take, besides excluding any course with "basic", "hacking", "kali", "pentest", and "deep web" out of my list?

I could find many many courses that seems interesting, but I already did this before: took many courses, but could add non of them to my curriculum/resume when needed a job. How to not fall on this trap?

So I'm going to be installing windows 7 on my new ryzen.
My AM4 mobo needs a patch to get it going since 7 doesn't recognize usb 3.0

I already have it, but was wondering the order of when to use it.

Do I mount the iso with rufus and keep the patch in the root?
Do I apply the patch and then mount with rufus?
Or does the patch also mount the iso?

unless you buy some weird ghetto chinese one from ebay, any card you bought in the past 5~ years will be atleast class 6 (or even class 10 if you bought a nice one) which like i said are very fast.

Is the drive detected but won't read, or isn't detected at all?

You might try the oven trick to reflow the solder, but it has best results when the drive isn't detected at all meaning a critical board failure. If it isn't detect, it might still work if there is something kinda wrong with it. If it's not that, and especially if you hear clicking, then it is likely mechanical and you are probably fucked unless you want to shell out for a data recovery service.

try googling [your router] + release dhcp/renew dhcp

also how do you know you have a dynamic ip if you cant even figure this out? dynamic ips are pretty rare unless you specifically request one from your ISP. most likely you have a static IP in which case you still need to do the same thing but you need to set your dhcp lease time manually to something low (i think the lowest is 30 minutes?)

if you actually have a dynamic ip, this will work

but if you don't then your dhcp lease time will probably be defaulted to like 6 hours which means youd need to leave your router/modem unplugged for 6 hours and then hope you get a new ip (which may take even more time depending on congestion)

File: 63 KB, 1500x282, MagnavoxHDDDVDrecorder.jpg [View same] [iqdb] [saucenao] [google] [report]

I recorded some tv shows on a Magnavox HDD & DVD recorder and then burned them onto dvds. I then ripped the dvds creating .cdr files on my Mac laptop. When I tried to move the 4gb files one at a time to an external drive and I get the following message:

"The Finder can't complete the operation because some data can't be read or written. (Error code -36)"

I can move the files around to different folders on my hard drive just fine so I put them in my Public folder and then opened the folder on my Windows laptop and tried to move the files to the Windows laptop. I got the following error:

"Error 0x8007045D"

Is there any way I can fix these files? I really don't want to lose them. I have no idea what might be wrong. I always used fresh clean dvds and nothing weird happened during the burning or ripping process. I was able to move most of the .cdr files just fine it is only a handful that are giving me trouble. The error pops up at different times during the transfer process for different files, sometimes near the beginning and sometimes when the transfer is just about finished. Has anyone else experienced this problem before? Is there anything I can do to salvage the files?

If I can successfully burn a dvd from the .cdr file and then rip it on my Windows laptop creating an .iso file am I degrading the quality? Is there any hope or is this just a lost cause? Is there possibly a program that I can get that will fix the bad data in the file?

I'm currently looking at using pass as my password manager. I am quite new to using GPG, however, and I'm unsure of the best scheme to use for managing my keys (that is to say, something that is a reasonable mix of being secure and convenient).

Should I create a separate pair of keys specifically for use with pass (that is kept entirely private), and another for use for communications/identification? This seems logical to me given that, should the password manager keys be compromised, your proof of identity/communication keys wouldn't also be compromised.

Next, if I do create a key pair specifically for pass, would it make sense to use non-identifying information for the user/email/comment fields? After all, if an attacker got hold of your pass-specific, private key pair, but it contained identifying information like your real name and email address, could that be used against you somehow, i.e. posing as you in some way, or does it not matter?

And lastly, is there any point in using subkeys if the key pair isn't intended for personal identification/communication? I know you could generate a new set of subkeys and reencrypt your password files, but would it be better to just make a new keypair altogether?

I guess it boils down to if it's worth it to use your main key pair for pass, since that seems to be what a lot of people do. I'm probably overthinking this.

I'm so confused about why this isn't working. I know showing the video will make people avoid helping but I'll show everything I've done /and how it still fails.

So first I found this horribly cropped literally gay porn webm:*

I downloaded "Shotcut": a video editing program for Windows mentioned in the /g/ wiki. Then I cropped the vid from "Filters" > Add a filter (the plus sign) > Show video filters (the monitor icon) > "Crop". I removed 104 pixels from the "Top", and 436 pixels from the "Left" and "Right".

The problem is" File" > "Export Video" doesn't calculate the cropped resolution and aspect ratio for you, so I do it myself (844 width x 616 height; 211:154 aspect ratio) but it always does it horribly, with black bars. I feel I'm missing something important, since the video tutorial I saw for cropping in Shotcut mentions dragging the video in the "Timeline" first, but the "Master" part of the timeline is literally missing the "Crop" function so I don't think editing from the timeline or the video itself makes a difference. I failed this so many times, will someone please just explain to me what I'm doing wrong, thanks. I'm gonna take a shower since I've been at this for over an hour.

you should probably consider;

most critically, you'll want at least 8GB ram, and a new gpu

>> No.63478474

You'd pretty much have to upgrade everything to play modern video games

That cpu is super old. Which means you'll need a new motherboard for a new cpu. That gpu is old and super low end, which mean you'll need a new psu for a new gpu. You could save the case and hard drive, but I think you'd be better off keeping that computer together as a secondary computer and then buying a second hand "gaming" computer off Craigslist or whatever your country has.

also, if you can only afford to upgrade one thing, make it the gpu
that will make the most difference
some games still won't run with 4GB, but many will if you turn some stuff down

How much is your budget

The issue is really that you're going to be dumping money into a sinking ship, your mobo is am2/+ which means it can't handle use a modern cpu. And it's so old that it will bottleneck any modern graphic card.

You really should replace everything or you're going to end up wasting more money in the long run, which would cost like 600-1000 on average for a good system

If you're super poor and desperate your system could use a phenom II x4 which is a decent processor, and you could pair it with any cheap high end gpu you can find second hand. You will probably need a new power supply to do this

>> No.63478792

at least midrange cards, and as new a generation as you can
typical graphics card model numbers have the generation as the first digit, and the model as the second digit
for the second digit, typically;
0-4 = low end
5-7 = mid end
8-9 = high end
for example, a "220" is a low end (2) card of the 200 series, with "290" being the highest end 200 series card
keep in mind newer generation doesn't always mean faster, there is significant overlap.
for example, a "480" is faster than a "610", as despite being older, is a much higher end model, and makes up for the overlap between generations

>> No.63478840

also note that this applied to ati/amd cards, with say, a "7850" being a high end (8) card of the 4000 series, and "50" is a sub-model (denotes some minor difference, such as memory speed, from other 48XX cards)

typically when the generation reaches "9", they reset to a lower number and change the letters to differentiate it from previous generations

I'm looking to repurpose my old gaming PC, which I built around 2008, into a general purpose server. I was going to just replace the old CPU, with a tdp too high to leave on all the time, with something like this;
It seems like a good idea but I'm wondering if I could do better. I'm new to this whole personal server thing. also, since I'm going to be backing up my shows in anime on to it, I was considering having it double as a home theater PC. would it be bad to have a desktop environment running on a machinist supposed to be a server? If so I'll probably go look for a single board computer. Something like a Raspberry Pi 3 or pine64 or something and have it run Kodi and stream media off of the server. A cheap single-board computer can do that right? I've seen people use them as cheap file servers but I'm skeptical of what a 5-watt tdp processor can do. Is my mind stuck in 2008?

I'm trying to make a bootable USB drive to install windows 10, but it wont boot.
I formatted it to ntfs and then loaded the win10 iso using the dd method with a debian machine.

the command I used looked like this
sudo dd bs=4M if=windows10.iso of=/dev/sdb; echo $?

I made sure the device was unmounted and the command returns 0 when finished but once it's done, gparted says it has an unrecognizable format and my old laptop wont boot with it, I can read the windows files in it though.

I want to order a Wera screwdriver set from German Amazon, shipped internationally.
Half the sellers dont ship to my country. I added about 30 screwdrivers to basket, proceeded to checkout and there I eliminated those that dont ship. Part one done.
Now I want to find the one seller who doesnt ask for 20EUR to ship a 40EUR set. However, Amazon only shows total shipping costs. How can I find partial costs instead?

Czech rep, if it matters.

The rest of my order, including some other Wera products even, is all sold by Amazon and qualified for free shipping. For whatever fucking reason, this single screwdriver set is a no go. I just want to get it from someone else for as cheap as possible.

Fun fact: even though Wera is a Czech company, buying the set here costs more than the 40EUR + 20EUR shipping from Germany.

>> No.63484538

never mind i got it to work by not inputting the original video resolution in the first two sections, the image the first guy i quoted posted misled me somehow?

i thought the image was saying by -vf "crop=width:height:hoffset:voffset" you input the original video res, then you were telling it by how much to crop. I thought it was removing 100 horizontal pixels from the left if you typed "1000:height:hoffset:100". Instead to cut of that amount, the "width" amount has to be reduced by the same number.

I don't entirely get it, but the output resolution not being the exact goddamn fucking same fucking thing as the input res when the purpose of the command is to crop is a fucking start

My phone dropped off the desk while charging.

How can I check if the battery, or phone is fucked up?
From the outside, everything seems fine and the phone starts.
However I'm not sure if the battery is now damaged, or the inside parts.

The phone does get hot whilst charging, but outside of charging it I haven't noticed it getting very hot, just a little warm at most.

Please help, would greatly appreciate it.
