the problem isn't so much whether the modem and router are one device or two, it's that ISPs do some really shady shit with the "built in" router.

They use it to log and keep track of a good amount of your parametric data (what domains/IPs you visit often, how much in total you upload/download) from YOU, as well as being the throttle for making sure you only get as much bandwidth as you pay for. Also, if your internet company is also in the cell phone business, your router may be a "free-wifi" point for anybody near by with their service unless you wrap the antenna in tin foil. Another always-on thing that was built into the router.

Then there's the additional security issues that they go out of their way to build into the routers. They generally have multiple backdoors built into them, which makes things easy to fix when a dumbass locks himself out of the router, but it presents a very significant security issue if the codes ever get leaked. Note that those backdoors will generally work so long as the router is plugged in, remote on/off and settings flashing through the cable and through the wireless (even when the wireless is set to off) are the ones I've had personal experience with, but I wouldn't doubt more sinister ones existing.

Oh, and you physically can not bypass the built in router to hook up to the modem, so an additional router really doesn't do anything aside from use as a hub for additional Ethernet cable outlets to the internet.

On the bright side, the ISPs generally don't cheap out when it comes to hardware specs for the built in routers. Most of them are fairly decent, or would be if it wasn't for the issues listed.

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.

Sorry if this is in the wrong thread or board.

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?
http://www.sciencealert.com/scientists-have-just-announced-a-brand-new-form-of-matter-time-crystals
"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.

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.

What programs/protocols for text based communication do you use? (skype, irc, etc...)

Do you like them and are they reliable?

>You think you're a really fucking clever guy, huh?
Not particularly. I believe you're putting words in my mouth, now.

>I'm not wrong
Then what exactly am I misinterpreting? Let's throw away the conspiracy theory crap for a second, as you've made it clear you don't bear those beliefs. What I'm reading is that you believe IRC to be more secure (or just as secure) as other text based communication software, and more secure than Skype in particular- and I disagree with that. My initial point was that you DID need Tor or a VPN in order to reach a decent level of security, which I personally find to be somewhat of a hassle. If I'm misinterpreting your messages you're more than welcome to correct me, and you don't have to agree with my preferences regardless.
>> No. 1193 [Edit]
Even when my connection to the internet seems to be very slow, irc almost always works. It's nice.

Have the programs changed at all? Despite 3 years later, it's basically the same for me: Hexchat, Skype, Steam and Teamspeak / Mumble / Normiecord if I'm playing a multiplayer game where I absolutely need other people.
>> No. 1516 [Edit]
>>1512

the programs themselves haven't changed name, but now you have to do a bunch of other stuff to block ads and crap so you can use them as well as they used to be 3 years ago.

Tohno is trying to set up a new engine and server for the site but he's having trouble doing so. If any of you know how to help and are willing, your help would be much appreciated. You can contact Tohno most reliably through the IRC.

We look forward to having your assistance and we thank you in advance.

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?

You sure that's not one of the dozens of clones that popped up in the wake of the take down and claimed to be the 'real' new site? Because a lot of those are attack sites, honeypots, malware breeding grounds and so on.

A bunch of VHS tapes from the 1995-2001, and a VCR not sure exactly how old it is, likely made before the year 2000. psx/ps1 games got them around 1997-2001, and a psx/ps1 console about the same age as the games. Original Xbox launch model from 2001, got 2 duke/huge controllers with it they are the same age as the console.

I recently found an old apple IIc with my friend, which we are trying to get up and running again.

I have an old HP pavillion with 98 on it. It still has the promotional sticker on the front that is pretty hilarious to read now: "Spacious 6.4 GB hard-drive", "Intel Celeron at 366Mhz", and my personal favorite, "Certified by HP and Intel as year 2000 compliant"

I still use a ball mouse and a Compaq PS/2 keyboard (To date my favorite keyboard I have ever typed on).

I named my current pc Helios, based off the name of the case I used (super helios).
My previous pc was named Gateway, that should be self explanatory.
My pc before that was given the name Frankenstein by it's previous owner, said it was because they pulled parts from half a dozen systems to build it. My laptop is called x220 because fuck it I'm lazy.
