I have a Samsung Galaxy S9 and my credit card company (Barclays) lets me set up contactless payments through it.

I'm not a zoomer so I don't understand this stuff, it seems pretty Star Trek. Once it's set up can I literally just hold my phone up to a terminal thing and pay for stuff like I would my credit card? Even if my phone is locked and I just wipped it out of my pocket? I don't have to unlock it or open any apps or anything?

Don't want to look like an old boomer the first time I try this stuff and it doesn't work because I did it wrong.

Pretty much any way you would set a lock on your phone probably works as verification, although samshit might have specific requirements. And the point is both the security of not using cards (which are surprisingly easy to rip off), having an additional level of account protection, and not having to fish around in your wallet. Also sometimes there are rewards for using those kinds of services.

Anyone else think cooling in most PCs is terribly inefficient? Most have 2+ intake fans, 1+ exhaust fans, 1+ fans for the CPU cooler, 1+ fans for the GPU, and 1 fan for the PSU. I would think there's a way to make the hot components touch copper pipes which then get cooled from a central array of fins. Then you would need 2 fans max.

There is not a straightforward way to do this. Turning on your PC involves bridging a contact between two pins on your motherboard, usually via a button.

ok that sounds interesting, do you know if there's a molex to outlet adapter? like pic related but the male side is molex, or USB maybe.

my idea is that all devices connected through USB, like mouse and flash drives stop working if I put the PC to sleep, so maybe if I get some sort of USB to outlet adapter and connect the lamp there might do the trick. I know it sounds dangerous, but nowadays you can get very low voltage LED lightbulbs, they should work fine on a USB C port right?

MY GOOGLE ACCOUNT WAS HACKED!!!! Please help me, seriously. Google's pages covering this is such zero urgency bullshit that doesn't help.

I know the password, but when I logged in it said device not recognized. The recovery email was COMPLETE BULLSHIT WITH TWO PERIODS I'VE NEVER SEEN BEFORE!!!!!

I kept trying anyway in between looking at help pages, but now it won't ever allow me to input the correct password; when I even enter the email now, it just says the account doesn't belong to me, so I should fuck off.

I googled for help pages, but even help pages just show how bootleg the process is, and how there's no phone number to call it seems. I don't know what to fucking do. It's not one of my main accounts, and I haven't logged into it for years. But now some fucking russian asshole probably who targeted me knows my exact IP and what device I'm using. What the fucking shit. Shit. Someone help me, please. I'm still pissing myself trying to find a number to call or something, before even the password I know is changed.

Anon, sorry. My computer is kind of shit. But both "Someone else is using your account" and "Forgot password" produce the same fucking account recovery page I was bashing my head against for the past few hours.

I enter the email, and the single only other option (if it doesn't deny me everything due to trying so much) is to state the recovery email. But it's bullshit I've never seen before.

I'm just so disappointed in google. Why is this allowed. I wouldn't think every attempt to log in requires handing over your IP to the current user of the account, so it's just my entering the password correctly that gives my IP up. This is horrible. I'm considering nagging to them on twitter about it for special treatment, but I don't have a twitter account. This is just a fundamental failure to treat vulnerable users right.

I'm only guessing I didn't have a recovery email for it. But no, it's not my fault. Google should zero percent have allowed an alien device to access my account then keep the password the same; it's literally just a fucking trap for the original fucking owner.

You can say it's "my fault" because I didn't have the consciousness to protect myself. But holy shit. Can the company get some blame for a shit system with blatant holes that burn the vulnerable. This locking out due to alien device should have literally happened to the attacker, not me.

Your link is the same I was staring at for hours. The only thing it offers is entering the email, then if it doesn't deny me everything, it asks for a name. I get the name wrong somehow. Or it asks for phone number. Phone number is not under any account.

Again, I'm just super fucking not happy a nigger can seize an account, keep the password the fucking same, and it's just a fucking trap for the original owner? If my ip wasn't given up I wouldn't think about this ever again.

I live in a corn field and my internet comes in on a phone line. Recently i bought a new router off of amazon so i can play around with it, the shit modem they gave me makes doing anything complicated. So currently my internet comes into the modem, which passes it to my router then off to all my local devices.

Can i just throw a RJ-45 connector on the end of the phone line and plug it directly into the router bypassing the modem all together? I would much like just having to use the router instead of both.

No. Routers and modems fulfill completely different roles. There are hybrid devices that act as both modems and routers, but you can't just connect a normal router in place where a normal modem was before and expect anything to work, since they are two completely different things.

I don't know what you're on about. The password is the fucking same one I used to make the account 5+ yrs ago. But the account was compromised.

If the nigger wanted the account he could've completely taken it over and ran with it. But he didn't. He left the password the same so he could see my private info if ever I tried to log back into it.

I might've been able to gain access again if I was on the same computer/ ip as 5+ yrs ago. I just didn't notice in time, I guess. But it's fucked this can happen.

The actual context is I mentioned it on 4chan once. And mumbling a "barely comprehensible" without actually articulating your criticism sure is intelligence conversation mate.

It wasn't even my main account. I logged in, did garbage, logged back out, then abandoned it. I did it on a desktop computer, and since it was fucking youtube, I went back to my main account indefinitely, which was never compromised.

What the fuck is "or you simply forgot some shit you did five years ago" supposed to mean. The recovery email is garbage with two fucking periods in it. I've never used shit like that before in my life.

Anyway my main critcism is the fact that this can happen to the original owner from using the password they created the account with... but didn't happen to the attacker. It's literally just the attacker getting in before the infrastructure was there to prevent the attack.

Are you saying here that the recovery email has somehow been changed to a statement reading "garbage two fucking periods in it". Or are you saying that the recovery email is a series of random letters and numbers including two full stops\period symbols, which are uncommon on email addresses? Isn't it possible that when you created this email account, because you used it for some sort of dodgy 4chan business - that you just wrote something random rather than put a real email address into it?

I recently upgraded my PC with all parts shown(except 9900k which I just bought lmao)

Anyway it turns on as long as the CPU cable is not in the psu, or in psu and not on the mobo.

Anyway, when it is in, it goes into a loop of off and in, with 3 to 4 seconds Inbetween each reset.

I've cleared CMOS, breadboard and still am confused.

There should easily be enough power, and psu and mobo are new. Only thing that is old is my 1080 and 7700k that's in it now.

Hey /g/, I took your advice and installed Final IK. This tool allowed me to import a four-legged model and add leg points to it, and bend them in Unity's Play mode.

The thing is, after you use Final IK to set up the points on a leg, how do you actually **script the leg movement?**

I can't find tutorials on this specifically. There's https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VhXuMoGA1D0 [Embed] which shows setting up a model's leg points with Final IK, which is what I successfully followed.

I have a 4k PC monitor which I got because I wanted a 32" monitor and there were basically only 4k. Anyway, I run my desktop at 1440p scaling because everything is so small in 4k. If I play a 4K video, will I still get the benefits of the higher resolution even though I am currently scaling to a lower res? I can barely tell 720p from 1080p so it doesn't really matter, just curious.

>> No.71141496

>> No.71141526

No of course not. Also Displaying 1440 on a 4k is blurrier than it would be on a 1440 monitor. Maybe try adjusting your DPI, although that's the hazard of using an unnecessarily high res like 4k.

>> No.71141663

Doesn't it scale everything if you set the desktop resolution to 1440p on a 4k monitor? If you play back a 4k video the output would still be 4k even when displaying on a scaled down 1440p desktop of a 4k monitor, right?

tl;dr Does 4k video look better than say 1080p when displayed on a 4k monitor scaled down to a lower resolution?

I mean, it's still being displayed on a 4k monitor, it's just the desktop that's scaled for legibility.

Then that is all you are sending to you monitor. It doesn't matter if the video was originally 16k. There's a full bottleneck on the resolution there. I'm not sure why this is hard to understand.

Perhaps a lousy analogy but let's compare it to a car. Even if the speed is limited to 100km/h on cruise control the car itself is capable to go faster. Or a underclocked CPU, you artificially limit the performance even though the hardware itself is capable of much more.

So basically the video is technically also down scaled to 1440p if the desktop is?

>So basically the video is technically also down scaled to 1440p if the desktop is?
It's like if you were playing a 4k video on a 1080p monitor. There's nothing "extra" there. You only have 1080x1920 pixels. If your system's overall "desktop" resolution is set to 1080p, then that's literally all your GPU will send to the monitor. It doesn't matter what you used as a source. I mean occasionally you'll get a dope video player on your PC that will attempt to use the 4k videos extra information to come up with an especially rad set of 1080p pixels to send out, but that's not better than having a good 1080 source to begin with, like an uncompressed blu ray. I think you're imagining "scaling" to be something more than it is.

IIRC macs are better than windows at scaling, since apple went on that whole Retina pitch, but who knows. If you can mess with your DPI, or adjust size in individual programs like browser/doc reader, that can potentially save you from having to change your output rez.

Doing something other than 1080p or 4k desktop output is especially bad on a 4k monitor, as the pixels don't line up, so you get an added layer of blurriness on literally everything.
