I thought the ponderings thread was getting a little computer-heavy, so I made this thread for general whinging about technology and the like. It sort of already exists in other threads, but that didn't stop people...

my flip phone stopped taking a charge and now i have to get a new phone and i'm afraid that i'm going to be forced into getting one of those rectangular 3dpdbook tracking devices that ntggers prefer to telephones these days when all i really want is a telephone to call people with and not a gps tracking device which uploads my position to the cloud constantly, even when i'm committing crimes. imagine being so fucking stupid that you pay the phone company hundreds of dollars a month to collect incriminating evidence against you.

i run a separate machine for my file server because i found out i don't like sharing ram and bandwith with the outside world. i capped the server's bandwith at a bit below my total capacity so it can do it's thing and it never causes me any trouble.

I am trying to read a handful of ext4 formatted drives from windows. However, since I used some specific format parameters so I could save disk space, some of the linus fs readers don't work. This one called ext2fds actually allows you to mount drives right in windows but it only works with the one partition I formatted with default parameters. Another, called DiskInternals Linux Reader, does work but only lets you browse the file sytems in their standalone program. You have to "save" files you want to copy over to use them normally. Real round about way of doing things but oh well.

From what I've gathered there are two exploits, meltdown and spectre. Meltdown is intel only and effects everything they've made going back 20 years save a few exceptions (some atom, itanium cpus). Spectre has a few variants which effect Intel, AMD, and some mobile chips. I forget which, but I believe only one or two effect AMD, and for those it is harder due to architecture. That's all I got off the top of my head. AMD made a statement about that which is on their site explaining it better.

Windows is supposed to be releasing a band aid patch on the 9th for this. they're saying now it can be as bad as 30% slowdown due to the memory leaks and that this makes computers very vulnerable to hacking. All we can do is wait for windows and Intel to work something out.

Windows 10 has a patch I believe, 7 does too but not sure if that's pushed to windows update yet.

I got that same idea but for all the worthless offshoot coins that were worth like 0.003 cents each. People told me I was retarded and I was tossing my money away. I figured it would be a fairly safe bet as 100 of each coin would only cost a few bucks and they might go up in value, if not no big loss.
The hard part was/is finding out how to actually buy any of those coins. The only site I found that worked for me was https://wesellcrypto.com/ but they're dead now. They had a very limited selection but I was able to use a phone app to convert coins I bought to those other worthless types. Now the $40~ I invested is $1,500 and climbing. My only regret is not getting more.

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.

Just tried to identify mine, not sure if correctly. Looks like 1930's Zeiss Ikon Nettar model unknown camera and 1950's Telefunken D11B microphone. Damn kraut shit.

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?

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.

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.

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.

So what movies do you like to watch /navi/?.
>> No. 1467 [Edit]
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".
