I'll consider buying used but knowing ebay shipping would be unavailable or too expensive.
Checked locally but there's nothing. Also so far I never trusted my countrymen enough to buy anything used from a stranger.
Noise could be a problem, I find my computer too loud already. I compared declared sound emission from HGST specifications with my current disks and it appeared only slightly louder though I did not expect that some new HDD's can still make that 'oldschool' noise.
Maybe I'll look for other options then.

SMART shows all drives good.
Thanks for the tips.

Anyone here know how to permanently disable this message? Clicking the third option essentially does the same thing as the second option as it resets every time the pc is restarted. It keeps coming up when I play a game and minimizes said game, which sometimes screws with my pc and makes me unable to get back to the game or my desktop while being left with a black screen (and game audio).

Maybe you can try disabling the Troubleshooting messages altogether since it's been such a hindrance. Go tot Control Panel > Action Center (use search if you don't find it) > Left Sidebard > Change Action Center Settings > Look for "Windoews Troubleshooting" under "Maintenance Messages" > Untick the box > Click OK Button.

So what do you guys think about this? Is anyone here going to try it?
>> No. 1587 [Edit]
I had been very stubborn in sticking with firefox over the years. Even with all it's problems I couldn't see myself using anything else as my main browser. I hated how each time it got updated the interface became uglier while more and more of my addons broke. If I didn't update then sites like youtube wouldn't work properly or I'd get out of date browser warnings. I patched addons myself to make them work, and installed others to fix the appearance issues (such as "Classic Theme Restorer")
Then the other day while trying to fix yet another broken addon I went to check the version number of the browser, which somehow triggered an update. When it restarted it was now running as firefox quantum. This destroyed the layout and nuked just about all of my addons. Once I processed what happened I said to hell with it, and installed pale moon after remembering it worked much like an older version of firefox. It was surprisingly easy to set up and was compatible with nearly all my old firefox addons. importing bookmarks from firefox wasn't supported by the installer but that only took a minute to export/import manually. Honestly I find it works far better than firefox ever did. Might have saved me a lot of stress if I jumped ship sooner.
>> No. 1588 [Edit]
>>1587
Nice, anon. I did the same on their previous UI update years ago. Not only does Pale Moon retain the old user interface, but it runs much much better on old hardware that I have. Far as I know the way new FF handles addons is now completely different, so none of them work anymore. Don't quote me on that though. Also, if there's an addon for firefox that you want on Pale Moon but doesn't work, sometimes you can check previous versions and those will work. I do that with the adblock element hider helper.

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.

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?

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?

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.

>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.

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.

"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.
