If I buy one of these things, is is possible to mix both of the inputs into a single virtual input with JACK?

Basically I want to be able to:
>Input both mic and guitar
>Monitor mic + guitar + PC audio
>Use mixed mic + guitar input as a mic in VOIP applications

Also, how much of a headache am I going to have running both pulse and jack together? Does pulseaudio-module-jack make everything seamless or am I going to keep having to diagnose audio problems?

Reposting from last thread:
Is it okay to forward both the Internal and External ports? From what I gather, Internal is used for LAN shit and External is for outside connections.

For some reason my router won't let me forward just the external ports, and is it normal to be limited to one device for the open port?

How to correctly update BIOS on a new motherboard? For example: a new motherboard has a "version 1.0" and manufacturer's site has the latest "version 3.0", should I update to a "version 2.0" and then on a final 3.0 or can I update from v1 to v3? I mean it's most likely possible but would it be the correct way of doing this to avoid bugs or conflicts?

>> No.70373228

Not a network expert by any means but I'd assume that internal and external is a mapping, you're mapping the specified external ports of your router to the specified ports on your computer on the "internal" network.

So you could have a webserver running at port 80 on your computer (the internal port), but set it to be mapped to port 8080 or something on your router (the external port).

Okay, so I built a new PC.
>CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 2700X
>MB: MSI B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC
>RAM: 2x 8GB Corsair Dominator Platinum

Now, there are three problems left to which I couldn't find a solution, otherwise it's running smoothly.
1.) My system says there are only 7.95GB of my 16GB RAM usable. I tried the solutions google showed me to no avail.
2.) There's regularly a random device disconnect sound appearing every 30 or so seconds. I couldn't locate a faulty USB port/cable.
3.) My headset (Logitech G231) isn't making any sound. At first it wasn't even being recognized unlike my other audio devices (which run fine btw), until I changed the setting in the Realtek Audio manager for the front audio jack.

I'd greatly appreciate it if anyone here can provide a solution to any of these problems.

The Linux API is very well documented. It's even (very) closely based on POSIX, which is an extremely detailed published standard that many systems follow. In fact, many BSDs implement a very similar POSIX-like interface, which is licensed under BSD license and so could be used as a starting point or reference model when implementing a new one.

So why does Windows not have anything at all similar to Wine? Best thing they have is WSL which is, to the best of my understanding, pretty much a VM. Interaction between the subsystem and the host is highly limited and restricted, from what I've seen. Surely being 100% compatible with all things Linux could be a selling point?

>> No.70374130

This question seems dumb to me. Yes, IF it was a capacitor that blew up, then replacing it will fix the mobo. Can you solder in a new one? I don't know, can you? Soldering isn't very hard, so probably yes even if you have no experience, but nobody can answer this question for sure other than yourself. Can you use one from another mobo you have lying around? That entirely depends on if it's the right cap. There's absolutely no way to answer this without knowing the exact models of the motherboards and then looking up their circuit diagrams or something, meanwhile you have both mobos in front of you and can just look to check. (Also mobos have more than a single type of cap on them, generally.)

So, I guess, yeah, IF it was a capacitor that blew up, AND you have a proper replacement, then yes, you could fix it. Was that your question? If so, alright, though it seems self-evident to me. If not, you really need to provide more details.

WSL is exactly like wine, it's not a VM.
They just didn't implement everything yet, hence some stuff doesn't work.
It's also meant to be purely as a development tool, not something to run production code on.

That is the answer. I can run all the linux programs I need on WSL. In my experience it's basically just a wine analogue.

WSL has access to the same files as windows has.
So if I want to access files on the C drive you go to /mnt/c/.
You can even create windows invalid files and have explorer cry about it then. (NUL for example)

You should not use windows file explorer to browse the subsystems main directory, as it messes with its permission.
See more here https://devblogs.microsoft.com/commandline/do-not-change-linux-files-using-windows-apps-and-tools/

One of the next windows versions the file explorer gets its own menu for WSL, you can browse the files without having to use the console.

Retard here, planning on going from a 22" 1680 x 1050 CCFL backlit display (acer x223w) to a 4K IPS 27" one (LG 27UD58-B) once I finish this year at uni.
I don't game, but I might sell my 1050 and get an RX 580 since they are so cheap now.

>> No.70374384

In theory, absolutely (unless Patreon wants to somehow detect you and lock you out, which is unlikely). In practice, I don't know if any good scrapers for specifically this purpose exist.
If you have any knowledge at all how HTTP APIs work (basically you have an idea how websites are loaded through requests, rather than assuming magic) I think it should be trivial to make your own scraper in whatever language you want.

Now if instead you were asking what Pateron's API for getting full-size images is, I have no clue. You'll have to open up the network monitor in your favourite browser's debugger (but only if your favourite browser is Firefox or Chromium based, as those are the only two with decent debuggers) and poke around their website.

>> No.70374414

Should be a pretty great upgrade. BUT, 4k 27'' is kinda iffy, unless you sit really close to the screen. Either find a bigger screen, or just go for a QHD one. As a bonus, if you go QHD, you might be able to find a higher refresh rate one (maybe 100Hz would be decent at that price point for an IPS), which would not only be fantastic for gaming but also will generally make everything feel so much smoother (even moving your mouse will be more pleasant).

i was wrong about cloudflare's data collection, my bad.
but the main difference here is that cloudflare claims to not sell or share their data to third parties and they claim to delete logs after 24 hours, while google doesn't make any claims regarding third parties or targeted ads (i wonder why) and explicitly states that they only delete "most logs" after 24 to 48 hours while permanently storing "some of the logs" from samples.
>Google Public DNS stores two sets of logs: temporary and permanent. The temporary logs store the full IP address of the machine you're using.

>Request type, e.g. A (which stands for IPv4 record), AAAA (IPv6 record), NS, MX, TXT, etc.

>Client's AS (autonomous system or ISP), e.g. AS15169
>User's geolocation information: i.e. geocode, region ID, city ID, and metro code
>Response code sent, e.g. SUCCESS, SERVFAIL, NXDOMAIN, etc.
>Whether the request hit our frontend cache
>Whether the request hit a cache elsewhere in the system (but not in the frontend)
>Absolute arrival time in seconds
>Total time taken to process the request end-to-end, in seconds
>Name of the Google machine that processed this request, e.g. machine101
>Google target IP to which this request was addressed, e.g. one of our anycast IP addresses (no relation to the user's IP)

>We will collect limited DNS query data that is sent to the resolvers. This data does not contain user IP addresses or any other personally identifiable information, and the bulk of the data is only stored for 24 hours.

most/all are comp'd especially on windows
you first need to try to secure windows using these
then try something like truecrypt (old versions less comp'd) or have a usb stick and use gilisoft or other drive/sub stick encryption, treat your drive AS A FOLDER
i mean technically you can enable windows encryption to just right click a folder and encrypt it
and you can of course just use an archive with a password
or store the data within any file, and encrypt that single file to be stealthy, maybe a double encryption so the first decryption just shows some embarrassing porn so people don't dig deeper for another password
yeah it all really depends on
1: how safe you want to be
2: how many steps you want to go through to open and look at your data, if encrypting a "folder" only is important to you
overall at the very least i would suggest just using a usb stick or microsd card and encrypt the whole thing using the tools made to encrypt full drives/flash storage devices, not just a portion or file or folder

Is it safe to put my hand inside a PC while it is running?

I'm trying to start anew with 2x Samsung 860 EVOs that have a few months old Win7 and Win10 installs. I booted the Samsung Secure Erase and it tells me that the drives are in a "Frozen state" and that I should somehow pull the power cables off of them and plug them back in.

Sounds like a recipe for disaster. Is Secure Erase really worth it, or is simply deleting partitions a much better solution?

no, other jacks won't work, those are for dif things like mic, however you can buy things like https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00NMXY2MO

That's what I'm aware of.
But now how does Samsung except us to "power cycle" the SSDs for secure erasing if its risky?

I delete the Windows partitions on the drives, will it bring the SSDs to a base state? I read somewhere that the "space" that had files would not have real 0's, thus meaning it is still impure. Will that affect the SSDs in the long run (6-10 years), as in retaining "past erased memories"?

I currently have a Windows 10 install running on an old AM3 board that predates UEFI. I've activated it with kmspico.

Is there any downside to uninstalling kms, swapping my hardware (new board/cpu/ram), then reinstalling kms? In theory it should work but I'm wondering if it's a good idea or not. Not worried about data loss, I just want to avoid reinstalling everything but I'll bite the bullet if it's going to cause stability issues.

Secure erases are only needed if you want to sell or dispose the disk, when your data would still be recoverable and someone else could recover it and access your private data.
If you just want to reinstall windows or whatever, you don't need to clean the entire disk, a quick format is enough, windows doesn't care if the unused space has 0's or 1's.

I thought SSDs get the 0-all-over treatment unlike HDDs that can actually get its real estate back.

Would deleting the partition(s) essentially do the same thing as formatting, or would it mess it up a bit?
I know I will have to format it whether I delete partition or not, but just wondering.

>> No.70376601

Ignoring the semi-accurate answers you've gotten so far, this isn't something you need to worry about. SSDs do shit differently, but they handle it well. There's something the OS does called TRIM, which takes occupied cells and clears them out. This matters because cells have to be emptied before they can be written to or changed again. You don't have to worry about this process. You can delete your partitions and just install whatever new OS you want. You don't need to worry about formatting at all.

short answer with no autism:
no, you pick one or teo to run, most are fond of DWS by nummers

longer continued answer with extra autism sauce:
if you compile the latest, it runs on all win versions and has an ew UI
if you use an older win OS, it may not run, and youll need the older ver
but either way, it seems to be exactly whats needed
that being said there are some which "strip" things out harsher, for example the program to turn win10 OS versions into "ltsb" style versions
but they can legit break shit
i've heard good things about blackbird
but yeah just go with
but remember, you may need to run it later, every month or so, as updates from windows can undo some changes
if you want a more per solution, that covers all bases then i highly suggest the win firewall controller
along with using PeerBlock (always have it on, change the lists to block all known windows shit (doesn't include updates, don't worry) and allow http)
you can also use proxifier portable (google for public reg key)

it is from personal usage of 2019, i have another system with enterprise LTSB
they both look the same, but i noticed all of what i claimed, as i inspected and benchmarked them
im sure on google somewhere is a comparison
but maybe it is rare, because right now it is an inside preview, so it is not (legally) public for anyone
you have to pirate it, the popular comes in russian with no other languages installed and refuses to add things until activation, which is also very tricky

bottom lien is, i've used win 7 and win10 vs win server 2016 and server 2019 (with desktop environment)
and i can tell you the server editions beat them in almost all areas, hands down, unless perhaps you install a fuck ton of extra features

you have only one IP address, looking in from the internet, your 'external' ip
the internet can't see your LAN, your internal machines
however, every IP can be communicated with via up to 65535 ports, which are channels which you can send anything through
so as a workaround to having multiple machines on a lan, sharing only one external ip, you can redirect individual ports to internal machines
for example, you might have a web server, serving on port 80, so you can redirect external port 80 to your web servers' port 80, so now people connecting to "yourexternalip:80" will be directed to your web server on your lan
and at the same time, you might have a different machine serving ssh on port 22, and so on
UDP is connectionless, so in some cases it can make sense to multicast it (single source, multiple recipients), such as a live video stream, though most basic home routers won't have the option to set this up

It's been like this since I got it. It doesn't happen in video games or anything like that, but only happens on images or videos when using hardware acceleration. Well, sometimes. On older forms of hardware acceleration it never occurs. Like, say, if I use OpenGL instead of Webrender with Firefox, it doesn't happen. But with WebRender it does. Or if I do hwdec with mpv it occurs. Bizarre.

>a detailed list of information basically making up to server performance logs

I don't know, anon. I'm the first to always turn off telemetry but google's logging seems almost entirely benign, the only possibly problematic field being geolocation information. But IP geolocation is so imprecise, and Google's DNS is popular enough, that I really wouldn't be worried.
Meanwhile, cloudflare doesn't say at all what it stores permanently.

Cloudflare's commitment to "not sell your data to third parties" is also not part of its Privacy Policy for some reason, only of its "privacy promise". I have no idea what the difference legally is - for all I know they're equally binding - I just thought I'd point it out. The other clauses (such as the one about not "combining" your data with third-part datasets) are present in both documents.

I don't use either, by the way, but I just think it's silly to defend either of them as privacy stalwarts. If you trust what they say, then they're both fine to use. If you're not paranoid and believe in the "nobody is gonna care about profiling me specifically" philosphy, they're both fine to use, especially since DNS logs aren't the most sensitive thing and plus your ISP or VPN provider already has them anyway. If you autistically care about every aspect of your privacy, then neither is fine to use simply based on who's maintaining them.

I'm not sure, I wouldn't be surprised if there was no standard as such. Maybe, though.
You'll usually find it on business laptops. It's not exactly rare, but it's just not a feature consumer-targeted laptops generally have. Thinkpads for example usually support docks.

In theory, yes. If you ever see people on /g/ complaining about how USB-C is utter shit, it's because in practice, it really depends. USB-C "can" have support for displayport and stuff, but it can also NOT have support for that in any given port, so you have to carefully make sure it's all supported, AND you have to make sure your hub supports it.
But, yes, if you find a combination that supports it all, then it'll work. That's basically how you use modern macbooks, by the way: except those force you to do it all the time by only having like 2 USB-C ports or something.

The difference is that 1 byte = 8 bits

Is JDownloader still the go-to program to mass download files from free file hosters?

It's been years since I needed something like this, and I thought I'd never use it again, but something came up and there's stuff I need to download that's only available this way.

I'm tired of irc sites showing my hostname and location to the world. I'm broke as fuck, is mullvad going to help me?

If you share your IP address with the server (no way around that), how do you want to prevent your hostname from being shown?

Reverse DNS and geo-ip have been a thing for a while.

There's some weird rule about needing spaces, if you just put a single word in code tags like bar nothing happens. That's normal. You might need to add spaces: bar or if this doesn't work, that means you need at least two words: foo bar. I also have no idea how any of this interacts with the surrounding text: nospacefoo barnospace
