Depends in the exploit used, but you need to be running a old IRC client and stock windows 7 install for it to work for the standard ones.

It pretty much activates windows using the Microsoft KMS Activation service.
There is no difference between a normal install and a cracked install this days, even when it comes to microsoft programs related use.
Microsoft just wants people to use Windows 10, reason why they don't care if its cracked or not.

You can update, use microsoft services/accounts/ onedrive the appstore, etc normally.

Replace your shitty ad-ridden executable with god-tier pre-3.x.
Turn off update notifications since nobody gives a shit that 3.x exists.

Torrenting reached perfection in 2.2.1. 3.x was just an attempt to monetize a piece of free software by changing it to feed you ads and developing a "premium"version with antivirus and video player and other shit that doesn't belong in a fucking torrent client because you have better options for those.

It has poor connectivity and a random assortment of bugs that they rotate with a new selection of bugs every update.
Torrenting became a solved problem seven years ago with the release of uTorrent 2.2.1, and since I'm a reasonably large pirate who seeds 24/7 I don't really feel like taking time out of actual torrenting to sit here playing beta tester for several days after every new release figuring out what the latest version just broke.
I was there for uTorrent's birth, going through the poor connectivity of 1.4 and instability of 1.5, marveling at the difference when 1.6 dropped and suddenly everything just worked and you could see every peer and max your connection 24/7, then going through the regressions of 1.7 before they got ironed out in 1.8, and then the polishing of the 2.x release into 2.0.4 and finally 2.2.1.

I don't understand monitors. I just rotated my Asus VG-whatever-Q24 or something 90 degrees clockwise, but when I look at it it's like looking at those shitty monitors that looks black and washed out when you look at it from the side. I don't know what to call this. It doesn't look this way when it's horizontal.

Is there some setting in the monitor's settings itself that will make this look normal?

Just pick a language and watch/read basic intro tutorials. The idea when you first start is to get a grasp on the general overarching stuff. How do you write a program and get it to run? What are variables? functions? loops? control statements? Each language has their own way of going about things but don't be too fixed on the semantics or syntax of a language until you understand the basics.

Github is a website that lets you store your code online so you can back it up or work on it from anywhere. By default it allows anyone to view and download your code which is a cool thing if you're interested in working in groups on something. It can be used on its own or in conjunction with the program known as 'git' which is a version tracking program that helps manage and track changes to files. It also helps groups of programmers work on a project simultaneously by keeping track of all the changes everyone is making to the project.

Hey simple question here regarding how long I should leave my PC turned off for - seems like it needs a break

hexcore i7 5280k (?)
16 ddr4 (didnt feel like dropping more at the time)
30tb hdd internal, 10tb external via usb
Bought a 240mm or 280mm corsair h110i (sorry it's been a couple years but the largest at the time) cooling system
512gb ssd samsung 850 pro (?)

I used to use it for encoding movies but now I use it at as a server for my media via plex. I've had it at my girlfriend's apt for about 10 months now bc I got her to get fios (I'm on all the top autist private trackers)

Anyways, this shit just stays on, recently went 3 months before rebooting it (I watch via plex remotely at my own apt, as do some friends literally across the world)

My girlfriend didnt get an air conditioner until last week when I bought her one after seeing every drive was near 40c including an external at 52c

I just got to her apt tonight because we have been living at mine lately. I don't want my PC to crap out. I'll go as far as to safely say my PC has been off for no more than 2 hours the past 8 months (I know it's real bad)

I just turned it off (mainly cause plex crashed hard and I cant remote reboot bc I have to unplug external hdds in order for it to boot)

What should I do? Is an hour off enough?

Leaving a computer off for a long time won't really do anything for it unless you're overheating it beyond normal usage. Leaving it on for a while might wear out certain bits like the fans, hard disks (if they are in use). Windows can get unstable if you don't reboot it for several months. Probably reboot once every one to three months, and if you're not going to use it leave it off.

Does such thing as "Bios recovery mode" exist?

>long mode
I recently have my pc die on me after trying to set the ram speeds at the advertised speed (3000mhz). Loading the xmp profile would make my pc reboot or sometimes not go past the post screen.
I got suggested to raise the soc voltage which I did (to 1.150, nothing dangerous) but when I started to try raising the speed of the ram I eventually had my pc never start again. I just get the led indicating it's on but nothing happens aside from the fans spinning.
The possible cause I got told is the APU I'm using (Ryzen 3 2200g) being too new and the mobo (a B350 asrock) being too shit, so after having the OC fail, the bios got into recovery mode but it won't start because of the APU I'm using, and that using an older CPU would start my pc right away and recover my bios. I just don't have one.

By the way, I already tried clearing cmos, trying one ram module at the time, unplugging everything, etc.

When I extract a subtitle file from an anime episode, modify it, and then manually load it when watching the episode in MPC-HC, it doesn't end up getting loaded at all, because I guess MPC-HC just assumes it's the same file, and sticks with the original one already packaged with the episode.
Is there a quick and easy to workaround for this? I know I can use MKVtoolnix to get rid of the old subs and insert the modified ones in their place, but I'm hoping for something less tedius, like maybe just a single parameter I can change in the sub files so MPC understands that it's a different file and is willing to load it.

there is really no brainwork involved in robotics of that sort. you are just sending out raw commands, like "move forward". you don't code the whole thing from the ground up. python and the "libraries" take away the bulk of the work. building the thing also is easy, you can buy kits, they are made "ready to be used". you just wire them up, and the internet is swarming with guides (video, pictures, you have it all.)

You use a tool to convert PDF to text, then search it through.

However, me as a pleb, I would prefer to see a visual interpretation of what it found. Like online PDF indexing sites. I suppose you need to render the PDF in some ways for that with PHP and also render a screenshot/visual interpretation. Now that's hard.

Thank you, this actually goes in line with what I was thinking but I'm so new to Linux that I was intimidated a little by crashing. I mean, I did try to install Arch coming from windows 7. Just using a program to create the iso was an effort, but fun. But after about four times reformatting and starting over and getting stuck on grub issues I gave up and went with Debian with no DE for the first time. So yeah I'm not exactly familiar with Linux but I've certainly found work-arounds while still remaining as terminal-based as possible.
>- that goes out the window once you deviate from the official repositories (including pulling from newer debian versions).
I haven't had any major fuck-ups yet but as time goes on entropy sets in.
>- basically, pick debian if you're setting up a machine for grandma
I think my experience using Debian (and note that I actually installed, again, and again, and again, trying out GNOME, then xf-whatever and the other DE, and decided that I wanted to hard-mode) I've found that in this actual particular case, yeah, I'd give grams Debian with GNOME in a heart-beat. Literally can't fuck up, until she wants to play the new desktop version of candy-crush that all her cronies' sons installed on W10 and I'd have to find a work-around. Therein-lies the compromise I suppose.
But yeah since I have everything working for now I'll go until everything breaks, then I'll fix it for points like I've been doing so far, then install Arch when I'm bored.

what you describe fits my experience as well
the comment about giving a windows sysadmin debian wasn't just a jab at windows users, that's exactly what i did, it didn't take me long to realize that being gud at windows doesn't mean shit in linux, i needed something that didn't cause hangups during normal use, and debian is perfect for that.
but as i got more familiar with it.. and started to deviate from a standard configuration, i soon realized debian is only stable as long as you don't fuck with it.
and yea, there's always compromises, there's nothing that'll provide the stability of debian *and* all the latest software at the same time, as debian gets it's stability from testing everything together over a period of time before releasing anything
so the reason i use arch now is because going against the design of debian by installing all kinds of current release software just doesn't really make sense, and i'm experienced enough to quickly handle whatever i break along the way

I still don't have anything really really bad to say about windows, you know, everything just is the state that it is, but I like the challenge of fucking with all this.

it's always a risk to mess with things on a production machine, no matter what you're using or what you're messing with
ideally you want to keep your messing-around-with machine and work machines separate, though inevitably you will need to change something on your work machine (updates, new software, etc). try to test these things on your non-production box first so you can learn how to avoid or fix problems with them

Yeah, the recordings are only meant to be a few minutes, maybe 10 tops. I cna't imagine 10 minutes of silence from the kids, so I'll probably just sit in the car I suppose, and figure out audio editing because it'll sound like I'm talking in a box or something.
Not a clue. The boss is a bit of a dickhead at times. Wants it done for work, but doesn't want work hours spent on it. It could be a really lazy day at work, and I'd still probably get called in to his office about wasting time.

I think you're right about it.
