What is the single oldest piece of technology you still own?

How about the oldest thing you still use? (if different)

I own an original gameboy made in 1989, it's older than me, and in surprisingly good condition. I still use it from time to time. I guess that's what happens when you build things to last rather than now when everything is built to break so you have to buy the new model.

I have a lot of computer parts from the early/mid 00s and a few PCs from around that time as well. I usually get them from people getting rid of them because they'd be useless otherwise. I have a drawer full of various video cards, sound cards, nic, wifi, and other things like USB and firewire. One loose motherboard with a pentium 4 1.8, and a crap ton of memory. A bunch of random power supplies and hard drives as well. The oldest working system I have has an Athlon XP on an Asus motherboard contained within a very nice looking Superflower case (see picture) that someone was just getting rid of and had sitting in their basement for who knows how long. It needed a cleaning very badly but now looks practically new again.

Greetings /mt/!

I am looking to buy a "smartphone" (is this what they call them now?). I have no use for the actual phone itself, but I'd like it for other little things, like IRC and other crap like that.

So, where do I start?

My phone screen cracked once more, although accidentally. For others who have this happen, a good way to fix it is to buy the same model off ebay, working or not, as long as it has a good screen(as cheap as you can get it). After this, swap the mainboard from the cracked phone into the non cracked one. This seems cheaper than buying screens alone from what I've seen as long as you don't have a fancy phone. Otherwise get the replacement screen. Doing either of these things is pretty easy if you take the time to put it back together correctly.

If anyone actually needs a phone and treats it as nothing more than a pocket brick, look at old carrier locked that were cheap even new. You can unlock them for use on wherever carrier you want, and look for cheap alternatives to the big carriers. These go for next to nothing. Take a zte z992 for example.

I have used adaway which I don't think does that.

It doesn't matter if you're a beginner or Dennis Ritchie, come here to talk about what you are doing, your favorite language and all that stuff.
I've been learning python because c++ was too hard for me (I'm sorry nenecchi I failed to you), reached OOP and it feels weird compared to the latter one, anyway I never got it completely.

I have this irrational perception that I don't want to learn any programming language because I fear it will become obsolete or superseded in the next 5 years. Is there any that almost invariably won't, maybe one in the C family or maybe even Rust?
>> No. 1550 [Edit]
Remember, once you learn one it will be easier to learn a second. Just because a language is obsolete doesn't mean others aren't similar.
>> No. 1551 [Edit]
C and C++ will practically never be obsolete.
>> No. 1552 [Edit]
Try a few and go with the one you like. This "if it gets obsolete then I wasted my time and will have to start from zero" is an unhealthy thinking.

What is WannaCry? Well, some little asshole wrote some code that exploits a hole in SMB within Windows. WannaCry, also known as Wana Decrypt0r, WannaCryptor, or WCRY, like other nasty ransomware variants, blocks access to a computer or its files and demands money to unlock it. Once infected with the WannaCry ransomware, victims are asked to pay up to $300 in order to remove the infection from their PCs, otherwise it is rendered unusable, and their files remain locked.

In general getting this on your computer sucks a sweaty ball sack. But hey, the fun's not over. This isn't like other ransomware. This one has a little surprise that comes with it. That hole in SMB allows it to actively hunt a network for other vulnerable computers. So it's contagious. That means all your friends at the coffee shop can join you in your misery.

So what can you do? Well if you're already infected, not much. Hope you have good backups, and I hope even more that you don't pay the fucking ransom. The last thing these people need is more money.

If you're not infected, well you have some options. First is get the update that fixes the hole. This will make you much less likely to get infected. However, with most of the planet banging on Windows Update right now, it might be a while. However, Microsoft does allow you to install from a stand alone patch.

Microsoft even released a patch for Windows XP SP3. "So what?" you say? Well, it was extremely generous of them to do so. Windows XP is a deprecated operating system. Microsoft was under no obligation whatsoever to release such a patch, but they did anyway.

Anywho...Below are direct links to the patches from Microsoft. Your best bet is to install these if you haven't already updated.

Finally, don't open suspicious emails, and NEVER EVER FUCKING EVER open an attachment you weren't expecting. You're welcome.

Good on you for advising not to pay. Anyone who does actually pay still isn't gonna get their shit back. All it does is give em cash. Any infected pc should be considered gone and should be wiped and redone.

>Any infected pc should be considered gone and should be wiped and redone.
Some people I've talked to think it's possible for the encryption to eventually be hacked and for that to be released. This wouldn't be the first time such a thing has happened. So it may be worth packing away those hard drives just in case, if they have any irreplaceable data on them anyway.

>Some people I've talked to think it's possible for the encryption to eventually be hacked and for that to be released.

but it is. It will take about 317 years using a networked cloud of 300 computers brute forcing the code for each computer.
Which, due to how well encryption uses random numbers, will be a different decryption matrix for each computer hit.

In about 60 years or so, the processing power of computers and network cloud computing should lower that to a total of 200 or so years from now (including that 60 year gap)

100% possible. Just hope the code needed to decrypt your computer doesn't take two standard deviations longer than the average, else instead of your great great grandchildren hit age 30 and finding out what files you had encrypted on your computer, it will be their great grandchildren. Who knows, the bitcoin wallet with .003 bitcoins you had leftover from the silk road may be worth a few million dollars by then.

Most of my data is backed up on hard drives that are physically disconnected from the PC. When I do the backing-up I do it under Linux and then disconnect the HDDs again. Prevents shit like this

The production of said panels is still way too fuel consuming. You would need gigantic mirror towers to gather enough energy for a solar powered melting pot, capable of solar panel production.

I'm also a bit sad, that smaller silicon crystals turned out to have better energy yield, than the formerly used big ones. They had such a aesthetically interesting pattern.

solar panels won't be cheaper than fossil fuels until they can be produced without fossil fuels. have you looked how much they cost to make without government subsidies?

I've been messing around on 3DCG (late, I know) but I can't figure out how to gett he hardsaves that people put up to work. I save the .png file in Documents>TechArts3D>TDCG and open up the program only to find it isn't in my saves. Do I need to use something else with it? Am I not saving it in the right place? Clearly I'm doing something wrong but I don't know what that is. Google has not helped me with this so far.

Does science in general scare you or makes you feel small? Specially physics and mathematics? Do you ever, however briefly, think about how little the average individual knows about the universe we live in and how irrelevant we deem it to continue our everyday lives?

Did they create a four-dimensional object?
"Normal crystals have an atomic structure that repeats in space - just like the carbon lattice of a diamond. But, just like a ruby or a diamond, they're motionless because they're in equilibrium in their ground state. But time crystals have a structure that repeats in time, not just in space. And it keep oscillating in its ground state. Imagine it like jelly - when you tap it, it repeatedly jiggles. The same thing happens in time crystals, but the big difference here is that the motion occurs without any energy.

Saw this video a couple of hours ago. It shows the amount of suns (like the one in our solar system) that can fit inside of different sizes of black holes, when crushed into a particular size. I kinda like this measurement videos that show the scope of our insignificance.
(Mute the purposefully ominous music if it's a bother.)
