This kind of blew my mind, the fact that something we built is out so far, even if it's just a probe from the 70's. I know it's slightly old news, but considering how long Voyager 1's been out there I don't think a week makes much of a difference.

anyway: those sounds (whales's songs, aria da capo from Goldebrg variations) could probably be repeated someday, in the far future... or no; and those are all the options.

Every single chan with a tech or g board is filled to the brim with political threads about policies, corporate/government spying and muh freedoms.

Whatever a tech board can come up with will be small-scale shit which they might use on the side to feel cool and above the system, but will never replace the current infrastructure. It's happened before. There is an interesting project called safenet, but whenever that actually becomes open the public is a mystery.

Also, tor isn't a "separate internet". Unless you make a new network of individual computers, you aren't making a "new internet". If you do that though, it wont be useful to people outside of that mesh network.

How does /tc/ sort their files? Do you throw them all in New folder (62) or do you take the time to sort them nicely?

I keep maybe 1/4th of my animu photos sorted by series. In some cases I have special sub folders for characters such as the waifu, saber, ect. the rest get tossed into a big general folder that I keep telling myself I'll sort out someday knowing full well I never will.

My audio is a bit better sorted. It's not ideal but I have a music folder, and from there groups/artists. few exceptions being folders for game music, soundtrack stuff, ect I do have a small general folder of sorts for music but that's just from when my only hdd died and I had to rip my music off my ipod, and because of how poorly it was stored the files were given randomized names and placed in random folders.

Videos is pretty straightforward. anime/tv/movies/other. sub folders with series names.

Games is also pretty simple. It's mostly just sorted by system.

For pictures, I keep everything in one big "Pictures" folder. I rely on remembering when I save things and hopefully naming things properly to find them. For anime, movies, music, etc. I make folders and keep filling them until about 50 or so are in there and make a new one. I also rely on remembering when I saved things to remember where they are in this case. When I sort pictures by anime series or origin I feel like it makes it a lot harder to find. I did this once a few years back to my whole pictures folder, and later dumped everything back into one folder. Took a really long time too, not worth it, long as I can sort by modify date I'm good.

I mostly sort my files in videos, pictures, documents, music, games.
In pictures and videos, files are categorized as board and non-board names ex. g, b, a/[serie]/[char], Art. there are videos in pictures tough, mostly webms.

Overall it's still a big mess, some loose files, duplicate files, wrongly saved. Then there's also the issue of files that fit within multiple categories, files on other drives yet to be merged and not having the same organization. Windows doesn't allow paths with more than 256 characters so long filenames causes a problem, a temporary solution is zipping the file so it can be moved or using Teracopy.

Hydrus as >>1810 mentioned before is a solution to file organization, but it requires all the files in one big folder, I don't want to lose my folder structure so Hydrus won't be used. some images can get tags automatically by looking at MD5 of your picture and those on x-booru.

One program that's been helpful is Everything, say you save a file, put some tags in filename it's easy to find back and it's MUCH faster default windows search.

Do you guys find saving annoying too? Depending on the content I might have to jump to many different locations for each file. now THIS is a hassle. Maybe one big folder is not so bad after all?
>> No. 1854 [Edit]
>>1839
I have all my programs set to automatically download into one one big ingress folder and then organize from there. It's ugly but it's easier so long as you keep on top of shoving things into their appropriate places every few days. One trick is using temporary folders to group items as they come in. Say you're saving Touhou fanart. Clear out the base of ingress so only folders remain and let them all save there. Then when you finish drag them into a new folder so they don't mix with anything else. Even if you want to sort further (by character) it's still much easier than having to sit there and separate hundreds of pictures based on series which I find is usually the slowest part. And you can make other groups too like funny, infograph, etc depending on your needs and what you're saving.

The vertical mice as seen in your image are supposed to be pretty ergonomic. I haven't had a chance to try them but I really want to.

Unless you constrain that to unusual and useful/functional, you'll find a lot of stuff made from shitty ideas that failed for clear and deservedly obvious reasons.

As for one that I thought was weird, but turned out to be immensely useful: the horizontal scroll wheel on a madcatz RAT mouse.
I just wish the quality of the mouse matched the price tag, because it was very hard to learn to live without it when I switched to a more normal mouse that would last longer than year before it starts to fail.

Yes that should work (I have done this on non-windows platforms but I don't see any reason why it shouldn't be the same on windows as well since from the OS point of view it's essentially addressing an indentical disk, and if just clone all the partition maps and everything should remain identical. Plus even if something does go wrong you still have the original HDD).

As for cloning software that you can run on windows, I've heard of filezilla which I'm assuming is free/open source. It may not be as polished UI wise as some of the shareware options but you'll probably be able to find a tutorial online walking through the steps.

I've used 'zilla (pretty sure its clonezilla, filezilla is ftp) years ago successfully but remember it being a bit complicated and wondering if it would work till it finally finished. Remember something about it not liking to clone to different size disks (particularly if large to small). That might be fixed now though. Years later used a program called minitool partition wizard which was fairly simple since then that has a "copy disk wizard" that you can resize partitions and stuff. Heard other people suggest macrium reflect, not sure if that's any better.

Thanks guys.
Clonezilla has detailed step by step instructions but it says it doesn't work with GPT disks when trying to clone from smaller to larger volumes.
I'll try the other programs. Hopefully I won't make my komputar explode.

If you can boot from its live CD, using GParted is pretty much the swiss army knife for any disk stuff. Still probably more hassle than using one of the native windows software, but it's worth a mention.

If you voluntarily surrender information to someone you don't have any reason to trust and then it turns out that they were lying about why they wanted the information and they plan on abusing it, who is to blame? The people who get into positions of power are awful people, you were taught that from a young age. "Power corrupts" remember that?
If you go out for a walk into the swamp in the evening on a warm day in May and the mosquitos go wild on you because you didn't put on any repellent whos at fault? You can't blame a bloodsucker for trying to suck your blood and you can't blame corrupt authoritarian animals for abusing power, they're both things you're expected to be away of and protect yourself from.
They can't sell your data if they don't have it. As long as they never get mine they'll never be able to genetically modify a superior being because I'm the prototype of perfection.

This thread is computer/technology related, so /mt/ is probably the best place to post it.

Anyway, to the point. I've been hearing many rumours that the soon to come Windows 8 will have forced "Live integration", which means (you guessed it), forcing you to register on Live before being able to use the OS. From that moment on, I realized that Microsoft will either fail completely as a Software manufacturer or the oblivious masses will bend over. To my (almost expected) disappointment, it is the latter. The masses will accept this as they have done so far. I'm talking about the social networking shoved in people's faces everywhere. You can't go to a large website without seeing facebook and twitter links everywhere. Hell, even online gaming has turned into one big social network (see Steam, Xbox Live, etc.)

The question I pose is, what's next? Requirement to have your real name visible everywhere you post? Or maybe forced cloud computing? Web 2.0? Seems likely.

They're already putting tracking devices in smart phones:

http://www.smh.com.au/digital-life/mobiles/your-smartphone-spies-on-you-for-google-apple-20110425-1dta7.html

http://www.techflash.com/seattle/2011/04/is-your-iphone-spying-on-you.html

And don't get me started on the backdoors they've put in proprietary software.

I can totally agree with you. It sure has gotten worse since 2014 in the name of kids and terrorists.

Actually, I am trying to figure out the fallout which will be raining upon us when A13 is implemented. If I recall correctly the new laws only affect platforms older than 3 years and with more than 3000 monthly users. While Im sure Tohno-Chan fullfills the age requirement, I am not so sure about the users part.

I think this user count clause will really save my ass. Most websites I use have also presumably under 3000 active users. Regarding Youtube and Co... I hope they will figure something out.

I think most of the internet isn't going to bother.
It's going to be cheaper for them to just cut off the EU peasants from the greater net than to try and conform to EU's fantasy demands.
Only the multinational goliaths will prevail, though I doubt they will be able to make significantly more money off of us anyway.
I mean the majority of us euro-peons is already poor as niggers and we're only getting poorer. It's going to be hard to squeeze out anything more.

>Regarding Youtube and Co
As >>1828 mentioned, the big companies are going to be pretty unaffected. They can afford to (and already have) developed ML based content ID systems to automatically take down content. Google, Facebook, and co. will probably set it to be even stricter in the EU and call it a day.

Meanwhile the law will only hurt small startups and indie businesses because they can't afford to/don't have the manpower to do the above. And it'll also hurt end-consumers as an end result in two ways: 1) there'll be less competition from these small businesses and eventually people won't bother trying to create services catering to EU citizens so they'll be stuck with big goliaths that will only become entrenched and incumbent. 2) Smaller niche content/sites may also become unavailable to EU citizens, as even those possibly under the exception clause mentioned may not want to risk violations or bother so they'll just block EU IPs.

I've been wanting to try programming or game making for a while now but I don't know where to start. I have a vague idea of what I want to make. Ideally, something like a point and click adventure game but rather than having an inventory it'd be more about how your actions affect the things around them. If you've ever played ghost trick I wanted to make something like that. I really enjoyed that games puzzles and I liked how a scene was being played out as you solved them.

But trying to emulate that kind of gameplay is too ambitious for a first try so maybe something closer to "I wish I were the moon" http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/461959

Making video games is difficult and learning any language is extremely tedious. The software I write nearly every day is what most people, myself included, would consider boring and the tedium is absolutely inescapable. It will more than likely take great resolve to do anything you have in mind today.

If you decide to program it yourself you should learn java and get comfortable with that. Java is a fine language for beginners and teaches useful OO concepts.

Assembly and Python are also excellent starting points for beginners, Python will teach almost everything a beginner should learn. It's easy to use and would make a great stepping stone if you want to later use a language like C/C++/Java. Python is great in and of its self and you can stick with it. Assembly takes a bit of effort to learn, but it's still by far the best way to really get to grips with programming, but I still recommend it less than Python and Java.

If you decide you aren't tough enough and programming is not for you, there are things like Wintermute Engine and Visionaire Studio that will let you make your game with little or no programming knowledge. They're really easy to use, so I hear, and they would suit someone with not so much time to invest in a hobby.

>Ideally, something like a point and click adventure game but rather than having an inventory it'd be more about how your actions affect the things around them.

That is a point and click adventure game.
