Make sure it's ublock ~origin~. Purge cache and update filters. If that doesn't work for you, switch to another browser besides chrome. Google doesn't want you interfering with their revenue stream, and they control the underlying software.


Anker is the most reliable. A bit pricy when not on sale, but they last.

Install windows first, leaving enough space for linux later. Format the HDD to NTFS, and install the NTFS package in linux if it cant write to it by default.

Yes. Being closer to your face makes a big difference in how much background noise they pick up, especially vs a laptop feed.

Ok, what the fuck I found an old USB drive of mine recently, but turns out that for some reason it is read only, I already made a backup of the files and tried to format it but Windows doesnt want to...
I tried to change it with the registry keys and with diskpart.exe but nothing works.

Current Read-only state: yes

That's your prerogative, but that's roughly why you're not going to find much.

I bought a figure the other day and while I was looking at the reviews I noticed that one person posted a picture with it inside his computer, and the computer seemed to be powered on. Is this a huge fire hazard or is it actually plausible for the computer to be so well cooled that you can safely do this?

>> No.80440585

should be safe, depends on where you put it in the case. either way it's not great for airflow, so prolly leave it if you care deeply about that sort of thing.

>> No.80440642

You really overestimate how hot computers get. A specific component will reach maybe 100C in a bad day. The ambient temperature inside the case will be a fraction of that with even the most basic cooling. I don't know what kind of materials the figure is built off but it's safe to assume you need a few exponentials of that number to have it combust.

A friend of mine has a problem with Steam.

His Install of ARK somehow "dislodged" itself from steam but it is still on his disk and he can launch it manually. I told him to just press install because Steam automatically checks if the game is already installed in that library before downloading but he doesn't have enough disk space (Why does Steam check if there is enough disk space before it checks if the game is already installed anyways?).

Does anyone have an Idea how to solve this? I've already drained Google but nothing we tried stuck.

This is Germany, Sir, our Internet is worse than rural India.

TL;DR: Steam cannot check if the game is installed because there is not enough disk space.

I've just put an ssd in my laptop and installed an os on it. The laptop boots fine from the usb installer I used but it won't boot from the ssd. I used the same installer on an hdd that was in the laptop before and worked fine but since I switched it with the ssd even putting the hdd back in won't boot either. The installer sees and writes to the ssd fine and went just like it did on the hdd, I don't understand why it doesn't work. The laptop also has a hardware diagnostic thing in the bios that says everything about the ssd and hdd are fine. Basically when I turn on the computer it goes to intel boot agent and fails whatever it's trying to do and then let's me select the drive I want to boot from, flashes a black screen for a second and goes back to the same list to let me pick the drive again. I reset my bios settings and messed around with the uefi and legacy settings, turning uefi off, giving legacy preference, going back to default again, it still goes into the failing intel boot agent thing. I thought maybe I installed the ssd fine but then why would the installer see it and partition it with no problems and why would the diagnostic also pass it on all the tests?

I mean, you can just buy a bigger SSD and put it in. Or assuming it has two slots you could keep the small SSD and just plug in your old HDD for when you need extra space.

>> No.80453944

If it has an optical (CD) drive you can replace it with a SATA adapter for an extra slot. Otherwise a lot of newer laptops have both an M.2 and a SATA slot.

>> No.80454120

SD cards are slow and not particularly reliable. Sure, HDDs are not much better but they're also dirt cheap, while you have to pay premium for anything but bottom of the barrel cards.
If it's your only option it's not a 'bad' idea but in most cases you have better alternatives available.

M.2 reduces costs, SATA needs a SATA controller and the 2.5 inch slot is bigger.

I've been trying to install openvpn server on linux and I need some help / clarification
"export KEY_CN" Requires common name, but what exactly do I put in?
I've seen some examples put in just the server name (ie just "openvpn"), some straight up skipped it and some their actual CN, for example: openvpn.example.com
I don't have a domain set up, so I'm not really sure what to do

I'm not an expert, but I imagine the people who work at discord can doxx quite a lot about you (i.e. it might be possible to connect this account to your normal one). As for other retards on the server probably very little (even without VPN), since from what I recall all traffic goes through discord servers

I was never a power user, and havnt used Windows is so long that I probably couldnt find the control panel if I was in front of a computer, but I dont ever remember needing anything to play games, just put the cd in the drive and install, IDK maybe something like directX or something, but the install would coach you to DL it if it didnt come with the game

wtf, the website is fucked, I noticed my iso is like 6gb, that I got like a month ago, so seeing your 4.8gb one, I wondered if there was a lighter one maybe, it was a fucking labyrinth, I couldnt even find the free DL this time (I found it last month), on the download page, the upgrade tool is obvious, and the img writing tool is obvious, but then the download windows is hidden in the collapsible for the img writing tool, and then it asked me the gayest questions, like instead of specs, it asked, is your computer lightning fast or slow, can you open all the programs, a few programs or just one program, does my battery last all day or not as long as it used to or needs to be plugged in, and last how important is security to you, very important or not important, and no matter how you anser it trys to shill you to buy a new laptop, and if not, it wants you to pay $189 for windows

anyone know where to find the free iso?

>> No.80456746

I believe the friendly windows thread on /g/ has something in the OP with all the available binaries
If you want to download the newest iso from scratch you have to use the media creation tool. It will then ask you what language, version and arch you want. Picking both x64 and x86 will make your iso bigger. When I picked x64 only it downloaded a 4.8gb iso

How does nu-Edge compare to other Chrom* browsers?

>> No.80457905

I'm assuming you're on Windows. It's the fastest browser you can get on Windows.
Functionality/customization is pretty much identical to Chrome. Very far behind Vivaldi in this regard.
Uses less resources than Chrome and Vivaldi but more than Opera.
Privacy? You're on Windows so why would you care.

The 3000-series APUs are still based on Zen+ and not particularly good, so Intel is probably better in this specific case. More generally, you'll want to look for 4000-series APUs, because even 4500u is performing pretty close to an ice lake i7.

Repairing components costs more than replacing them, so no.

>(Like, doesn't the VPN encrypt everything anyway so what's the point of the torrent client allowing/preferring/requiring encryption?)
Well, for starters, if you disallow encrypted connections, you won't be able to leech from anyone(or seed to anyone) who requires encryption.

>what site should i use to register a domain name?
Namecheap is what I've seen recommended. Godaddy is apparently one you want to avoid. I can't personally attest to either of these, though
