normally I'll blame the users for being stupid and not paying attention to what personal info they share. except with facebook. FB starts by making people stupid then uses every underhanded technique in the book to trick them into "allowing" it to steal their personal info because at that point they're so dependent on it that if it says "share X with us so we can improve your experience" they'll take it as face value and agree, every time.

LTO-8 tapes aren't being made at the moment due to Sony trying to slap Fujifilm again (they're really mad they don't have a production monopoly). So we are stuck with M8 tapes for now, but when full LTO-8 tapes were being produced you could get them for $70 USD

I think the biggest oversight in the design of red-book audio CDs was the failure to include some kind of text information about the tracs like id3 tags so the CD player could display the name of the CD , Artist and Track. Other than that CDs were the last word in audio with 16/44.1 being all that's needed.
>>
>>70616639
Those features are part of the spec but CD makers don’t implement them so CD player makers never bothered to implement them.

not him, but when I reconfigure some of my older systems running XP it's a PITA and a half to dig out my old installation CDs that either came with it or the few I burned. If i just have a boxed copy for it to keep on a shelf it's much easier for me as I don't have spare flash drives to use as an install disc nor do I want to take the time burning an ISO.

8GB DDR4 2666MHz
600w power supply
1x SSD (240GB
1x Storage (2TB Seagate / Toshiba
1x GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB

don't do a giveaway with your own money you casual.
get in contact with some hardware marketplace and shill for it in exchange for the PC plus some pocket change if you're famous enough.
If any Counter-Strike rando with 3000 subs gets to shill for skin traders you can manage that at least.

Let's be honest, the only thing where Linux exceeds is by having a powerful command line. And with WSL you can have that while you use an actual usable non-bullshit OS with a friendly UI. Get an SSD and you won't even notice that's not native UNIX.
>>
>>70616656
Windows is nonfree software and harmful to the user. It includes spyware, DRM, and backdoors and should not be used by anyone for any reason.

>Linux
This isn't an OS.
>>
You could do that before WSL though.
>>
>>70616656
>WSL you can have that
Kinda. Maybe. It's a poor implementation with shitty performance and getting an SSD does not help. But it beats native Windows stuff often, so
>non-bullshit OS
doesn't really hold any water, either. Actually try Linux for once and use it to its fullest potential instead of making these poor shilling threads.

Tell me /g/, how important is the PSU choice and what do I have to look after when picking one?
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
>>
Get at least a mid range psu, they have a better power efficiency and are way more reliable, especially in the long term ; psus tends don't last that long compared to other computer components, and getting crashes or stuff like that because of it sucks.
Just don't take more voltage than you need, this is were the scam is at.
>>
>>70616193
PSUs actually end up being some of the longest lasting parts, a motherboard or storage device will often fuck up before a PSU does a PSU is also one of those parts you take from build to build, with lots having 10+ year warranties you kinda want to keep reusing them

I am looking to replace my old unit that is starting to show age, and what I mean by that are changes of fan noise and sometimes PC shutdowns, I am looking in 650-750 W range with 80 plus Silver/Gold certificate, and I also look at some trusted manufacturers, my budget is around 70-80$ and currently Raidmax, Kolink, Cooler Master and Chieftec look like a good deal, also particular units that I looked at seem well built. Unfortunately online shopping is not an option since I live in the part of Europe where the sun doesn't shine very bright, and customs taxes for online shopping are abysmal, so I have to resort to domestic shops.

Go with RAIDMAX. Cheap and high power, can't go wrong.

>A white-hat hacker found a way to get into the French government's newly launched, secure encrypted messaging app that otherwise can only be accessed by officials and politicians with email accounts associated with the government identities.

>Dubbed "Tchap," the end-to-end encrypted, open source messaging app has been created by the French government with an aim to keep their officials, parliamentarians and ministers data on servers inside the country over concerns that foreign agencies could use other services to spy on their communications.

>The Tchap app is built using the Riot client, an open source instant messaging software that implements self-hostable Matrix protocol for end-to-end encrypted communication.

>Yes, it's the same "Riot and Matrix" that was in the news earlier this week after an unknown hacker breaks into its servers and successfully stole unencrypted private messages, password hashes, access tokens, and GPG keys the project maintainers used for signing packages.
