I have noticed that Tom consistently edits his posts without making any changes.  This causes notifications to show there are unread posts when there aren't.  Is this against the rules?  It seems like abuse of this function should be.  I find it annoying to have to reread his posts to make see if I need to edit a response only to discover that nothing has changed.

If abuse of post editing is against the rules, let me know so I can decide if I want to bother reporting it.  If it isn't then I will just deal with it.

Technology & Information / Laptop Help
« on: March 01, 2021, 12:10:52 PM »
A client of mine needs to invest in a new laptop as their accounting machine. They want to spend less than $500 CAD and the machine only needs to run quick books, excel and surf the internet. I know Lenovo’s are reliable and reasonably priced, which are ideal qualities. So I found a refurbished 2017 Thinkpad or a new Ideapad at comparable cost, both from Newegg. Anyone have an opinion on which will be better value?

Philosophy, Religion & Society / Wall Street v Wall Street Bets

I fucking love everything that is happening right now with the Game Stop stocks.  I wish I had an investment account so I could get involved in fucking over a hedge fund or two.  It is really sad how the whole affair exposes the one loyalty every American media outlet and politician has: the money.  A bunch of retards on reddit start gaming the system like billionaires do on the daily and you get the head of NASDAQ calling for increased regulation on stonks and CNBC talking about shutting down discussion of stonks on social media groups.  Its hilariously corrupt and backwards.

Anyone got some GME they want to share?

Philosophy, Religion & Society / GamerGate 2: Rise of the Streamers

I haven’t had a chance to read allegations in depth yet but apparently a large number of sexual assault allegations are coming out. Dr Disrespect has been permabanned with no accompanying statement yet and the high profile stream team, Method is likely to be disbanded. Many other stories are unfolding simultaneously.

Cool experiment that requires a ton of precision and error elimination. Seems like gravity continues to exist.

Technology & Information / Does this look legit?
« on: September 17, 2018, 05:53:31 PM »
Hey hive mind,

I have a friend who is so bad with computers that she makes me look like Parsifal.  She had used a tech company in India names TeckPCSupport to help her printer and macbook compatible.  A year later a guy called unsolicited from the same company.  He had an Indian accent and his name is Tony Martin, and he said that her computer had been compromised and offered to help her work through it.  Her terminal app, under the control of Tony Martin pulled up the following message:



As she was telling me the story, a few things struck me as odd:
  • If she had been compromised, it is odd that her computer was being monitored by someone without her consent.
  • It seems odd that Terminal would say something specific as "Ransomware has been uploaded"

What do you guys think, was she swindled?

BREAKING NEWS: She called the tech company she had enlisted to fix her printer and gave them the number that Tony Martin had given her and they were like, "lol wut?  Nah, yoo got fuked"

If she just got scammed, is this a situation where she formats her computer and changes all her passwords?

Suggestions & Concerns / Out of curiosity...
« on: August 26, 2018, 10:58:59 PM »
Thork decided to go full 4th Reich, and I am wondering if the mods considering moving his little outburst to AR?  I suppose the only rule it could be considered to contravene is the NSFW clause, but as I see it, it is hard to qualify as that.  Curious because it felt like his post was close to the line, but I am not sure if that is just my own personal feelings that he was being a twat.

Technology & Information / Problem connecting to database?

Did anyone else have any issues with the site connecting to it's database this morning?  Was tech support farmed out to John Davis?

Technology & Information / Soooo, I may have broken my laptop
« on: April 27, 2017, 06:04:59 PM »
I stood up and my leg caught on the power cord of my thinkpad X201, dragging it off the desk and crashing to the floor. Now, whenever the power cord is plugged, the fan (I think it's the fan) squeaks, the laptop beeps repeatedly and the screen flickers. The laptop also will not boot if the power cord is plugged in.

The question is: how bad is it? The obvious follow up question is: do I bother fixing it, or shell out another $250 for a new one?

Suggestions & Concerns / Moderator editing of community posts.

Just wondering what would cause a moderator to edit a community post, such as this one without notice?

Technology & Information / GPU upgrade for X201
« on: February 25, 2017, 03:33:38 AM »
Hey ya'll.  I am looking to bump up my GPU on my Lenovo X201 so I can play a few games on it.  I tried researching what is compatible, but I can't really make heads or tails of it.  Anyone here know what GPUs might be compatible with my laptop?  Thanks for the help.

Flat Earth Community / Cool Hard Logic - Testing Flattards - Part 1
« on: November 29, 2016, 03:27:56 PM »


Cool Hard Logic begins a 4 part series debunkning FE Theory.  Right off the bat, it looks like did not research much here, because he is missing some of the more sophisticated solutions to the problems he points out.  Still some good points are made and he is a funny dude.

Other than his derision of FEers, what do members think are the good/bad points he makes in this video?

Science & Alternative Science / SETI Candidate

This is interesting:

http://www.centauri-dreams.org/?p=36248

They found a strong radio signal from a system with a known exo-planet, and the signal has no immediately known natural source.  SETI is going to continue to monitor it.  Spoiler Alert: It's the Vulcans.

Suggestions & Concerns / Home Page Announcements
« on: June 11, 2016, 11:57:58 AM »
Would it be possible to change the post that is on the front page?  To have the home page constantly announcing the resignation of an admin is maybe not the most optimistic or attractive message.

Philosophy, Religion & Society / The Breitbart Crew
« on: May 31, 2016, 04:51:14 PM »
Late a couple of nights ago I learned about the existence of Milo Yiannopoulos and Ben Shapiro.  Really interesting characters, who I really expected not to like; except that I found myself agreeing with a number of their positions, idealogically at least. They have a strong message of self-responsibility, which I strongly agree with, even if they don't always apply it evenly.  I was surprised to learn that the gender wage gap was something of a myth as well.  I really appreciate the hardline approach they take on safe spaces/trigger warnings as an impediment to free speech and also the de-emotionalizing of race politics in the US.  That being said Ben Shapiro is an ungracious asshole, who does nothing to build bridges with people he purports to want to help, but that is not particularly important.

Does anyone know of any good criticism of these guys, or have anything they feel is important to balance out their positions?  I am looking around with some interest and will post any goodies I come across.

Suggestions & Concerns / CN 404 error
« on: October 27, 2015, 06:59:56 PM »
Heya,

I am getting a 404 error whenever I try to navigate to CN.  I am using Firefox 41.02 on OSX.  Any ideas why my internet is broken?

Technology & Information / My computer is a slut...
« on: June 17, 2015, 11:27:02 PM »
...and went gallivanting around torrents with no protection. Contracted some malware and I can't seem to shake it. I used McAfee and Malwarebytes to no avail. I can't even tell what malware I have. What is the next step before reformatting?
