Do you treat your computer like your friend?
Not everything needs or should be treated.
you may wanna re-read op's post again, I think you might have misunderstood something there.
I treat it like a best friend and my partner in crime, and I try to delude myself into thinking that she's changing her style whenever I have to replace parts of her or get a new computer.
I have had the same computer, with modifications now and then since about 2005. It was a junky prebuilt Dell my parents picked out but I can't abandon it. I think I might change the case soon. I also haven't dusted it in 7 years.

ME-tan will do her best to help (with the help of other users, ofc).
I was able to pick up a modem for like $5 from a yardsale ( Netgear CG3000D ) and it has built in wifi. I've been using a isp provided modem and a wifi router up till now. With this new device is there any reason to still use a separate router? I've heard there can be security issues with using just a modem alone.
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.
Thats very informative, thank you.
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.
So what movies do you like to watch /navi/?.
If we're talking /navi/ grade movies, I can certainly recommend Black Hat (2015). probably one of the most realistic depictions of hacking you'll ever see in mainstream media. None of that random keyboard mashing or "enhancing".
Oh yeah i actually have heard of that but never seen it i will check it out thanks anon.
Is there a way to create a nuke that would only kill niggers?
One could start by nuking this thread.
Ah yes, the Electric Retard. A timeless classic.
But the answer is no. You want an ethnic bioweapon for that.
When will VR be good enough for us to (sort of) be with our waifus?
That's why I'm looking into advanced cardboard stuff until I get enough money to buy Vive/until they get out of beta. Still, not as advanced as GearVR, since phone+headset costs almost like Oculus.
I wonder what smartphone should I get having the cardboard VR in mind. Being a hikky I don't think it's a good idea investing a lot into a mobile device I would barely use for its primary tasks. At the same time I think that if I spend money at least I should get something that will be good for a while from now on.
Can't decide between LG G3 D855 and Nexus 5x, first one is cheaper, has better screen for VR and generally seems to pack a lot for its price, but is outdated, especially in terms of OS. The second has little memory on board (16 gb, won't even hold a movie in 3D), no card slot to compensate for that, low density 1080p screen, but it's the purest Android experience I can get and it looks quite neat (not that I'm going to show off to anyone, but I want to enjoy the looks of a device just as much as its functionality).
I've tried out a google cardboard style headset with my smartphone. I even bought a vr-one and managed to make it work with my phone. Wasn't that great of an experience. It's neat but far from ideal. For one the image quality is pretty shit. my phone has a 1920 x 1080 screen but images were extremely pixelated because of how much you're zooming into it while having it take up your full range of view. It was less pixelated with the cardboard style headset but that's only because it wouldn't take up the full range of view and instead was like looking at a floating screen in front of you. Another issue is framrates and connectivity. Because you can't stream large amounts of data over wifi all that well you can expect -very- low frame rates. Even with a usb cable connected I'd have to drop settings extremely low just to get more than 10fps, and by low I mean like animated gifs you see that are so low in quality they look like color blobs. It depends on the kinda content you're trying to stream too. I've got a pretty decent PC and my phone isn't that bad, but that didn't seem to really matter, but Simplistic low demand games seemed to work 'okay' though. The most smooth experiences I had were the ones using content that was being played off the phone itself not streamed. Even then the pixelated image and possibly other factors made it tiring to use for extended periods. I tried using a virtual cinema to watch an episode of yuruyuri and I was only able to make it half way in before needing to stop because of head and eye pain. At this point I'm hoping I can get a job so I can buy a HTC. Using my phone gave me a nice idea of what VR can be like, but it's a very basic and rudimentary experience.
I fapped to Miku and Haku in VR two days ago using this: http://vrporn.com/waifu-sex-simulator-vr-1-4 It's based on MMD, using MMD models and animation, so it's like being in a MMD scene or video. I wasn't using cardboard or phone based VR, and I felt like I was really there with the character, so yes >>1268 VR is already good enough to at least let you feel like you're in the same physical space as your waifu.
Because the anime characters are life-scale in VR, the first thing I noticed was that the character's proportions were a bit unrealistic. Miku, or at least the Miku model in "Shy Miku", had really long legs, really small shoulders, and a small and skinny waist. Later on, when I got more used to the program and explored other scenes, the best part is getting really close to the character. That was definitely the most exciting part, getting close, and feeling that Miku is physically close while fapping to her.
Although it seems like this is still in the early stages, I am watching it with extreme interest.
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:
And don't get me started on the backdoors they've put in proprietary software.
Well, this concludes my pointless post. Any thoughts?

Whats even scarier is that they are spying overseas. So if your using a computer made by an Eastern company, and your some guy over in Kenya using that computer using a Kenyan ISP, The States are still spying on you, even if the Kenyan government had no agreement with The States.
Is your computer moe?
Where can I get this voice pack?
From buying the Premium version of Window 7 Jap edition.
Yes it is.
Still haven't figured out the language.
What's your current uptime? Longest?Post edited on 22nd Nov 2015, 7:55pm
How do you keep from restarting due to updates?
I just changed the settings for the updates is all. I have it download the updates but don't install them until I say so. It's right in the control panel.
Mostly why I haven't upgraded to 10 yet, because that option isn't there anymore, and I don't want to "break" the system by disabling the update service entirely. It's kind of a petty reason but that combined with my laziness and apathy is enough to prevent me from upgrading.
Is it really good for the computer to be on for that long?
That being said I'm at 1 day 6 hours.
No idea, but I've been keeping mine on for years, with plenty of power failures to make sure I don't keep my uptime. If it impacts it's lifetime at all, I'm sure it's very minimal. Just make sure you have good cooling.
I'd think the thing it would impact most is the hard drive, if anything. But of course that depends on what your machine is doing while idle.
Technology-related, so I guess it goes here.
As some of you probably know by know, Steve Jobs died yesterday, October 5th. What road do you think Apple will take from now on?
I'm hoping for some modern successors to discontinued products from back in the day, such as the Apple III, or heck, even one of these compact Macintosh types (as seen in the picture). Though I have no idea what a modern version of those might even look like. Certainly not a box with a CRT screen on it.
Is it because your country is unusually smart and/or informed, or were they all just tricked into another product?
Simply poor, so everyone uses PCs with pirated software.
this video tells alot about apples main shitty defense league of userbase.
What a weird problem...
Setting the date to 1 January 1970 will brick your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch
So I've heard with watercolor systems that the non-conductive liquids out there can eventually become conductive over time as the liquid will pick up minerals in the pipes and components they pass over. making them essentially pointless.
My question is, would this not also apply to mineral oil systems? Is it not possible to wake up one day after a few years and find your fish tank pc to be completely fried?
>I think the whole concept is retarded.
What's retarded about dunking your computer in a fish tank full of oil?
it may be surprising to you, but the oil will protect the computer's innards from corrosion in addition to the massive heat dissipation.
you also don't need to clean dust bunnies out of the fans and heat sinks regularly.
It will also lubricate inside your CPU, reducing drag when electrons flow through the pipes. Faster electrons = faster computer.
Use distilled water?
