If the password to this device were changed to something unknown by the owner, what reliable methods are there to recover it?

Would it make more sense to attempt data retrieval or hack the lock-screen?

How complicated would either of these endeavors be?

What levels of time and/or money should I expect to invest?

It's not in current use, but there may be valuable information on it, and the password was changed by someone who is no longer available.

Please advise if you have experience in this.

And FWIW... no, it's not stolen, lol.

Where do you live that there's a "Samsung Store?"

That isn't a thing where I am.

I even Googled it.

Do you presume that not having proof of purchase means it's stolen? Because I don't have proof of purchase for most of the things I own (I'm really bad at keeping receipts), and it hasn't been in service for at least a couple of years...

My assumption is that there's a legitimate way to bypass the lock-screen and/or retrieve all the data without having to take it to someone, and I'm assuming there are those who have done it.

I'm very adept at reading technical instructions, but I've only so far come across stuff like "Dr. Phone" (whose $100 price tag made me suspect of its legitimacy), and I was hoping for advice from those with more experience.

So, there's this thing called "The Internet" where you can download programs that do things.

Sometimes they're malicious, and sometimes they just do what you want them to.

I have a computer. I can run programs.

I do not know which ones to trust to do what I want them to do without being malicious.

Sabes que, pinche puta maldita?

Just factory reset it, youll lose all your stuff but youll get it open, I cant remember the combination though its something like home key, lock key volume up volume down, just google "how to factory reset a samsung phone while locked"

For my mom I was thinking some wine but all I heard about was Belle Glos and some people say it's great and others say it's shit, also I feel like the Prisoner is a meme
Please help, I only have $120 to spend on wine

I'm not worried about this, just curious, been doing it for a while now. Why do ribs just suddenly start bleeding out whenever you boil them?
>>
>>602278

There are still trace amounts of blood left when the animal is frozen, when its frozen it also gets ice crystals on it so when you boil it the water and blood mixture comes out, its really nothing to worry about all meat does it.

So I recently installed Linux Mint. Its installed on a 500GB HDD. its an AlienWare M17x laptop with i7-3740QM processor. 4GB Ram.

This OS is so slow. Besides taking 20 - 30 minutes to shut down, opening folders takes about 2 - 3 seconds to respond after clicking on it.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

>GPL
No-one's complaining about its licensing. It not being GPL despite being a Linux GPU driver is because it's the Windows driver shoved into Linux, and that's a bad thing.
>What performance or stability-wise makes this driver worse than using the integrated Intel card driver?
It was written for Windows then shoehorned into Linux, which works about as well as you'd expect that to. See OP.

It's two-thirds of your argument!

Facts not in evidence. Shall I switch mine to prove you wrong?
>>
>>601831
1) there is no "argument", I'm just summarising the issue for you so you can look less ignorant next time.
2) the licensing status has nothing to do with its lack of quality, it's just the proof that it's the Windows driver and a shim layer.

You seem to have real problems getting your head round this. Do you not understand how copyright works? Maybe you should just concede that in this case Linux and Nvidia know better than you do?
>>
>>601834
>there is no "argument"
Are you twelve? Your opinion that Nvidia's Linux driver is "shit" is worthless without data to back it up. This is sad. Don't you at least have an unverifiable personal anecdote to back it up?
>>
>>602155
Again, you with the reading skills. There's no argument [that the Linux driver is the Windows driver and a shim layer], which is why you banging on about "muh GPL" shows you're just skimming out the keywords.

So let me break it down into keywords for you. The driver is:
(1) Shit
(2) the Windows driver shoved into Linux
(3) a proprietary blob that would violate the GPL if it were designed and written for Linux

(2) causes (1). (3) proves (2). (1) and (3) have nothing to do with each other aside from both being true.

Why has my fan gotten a lot louder since I got a new monitor (upgraded from 1024x768 to 1920x1080)? Since the monitor has it's own power supply I wouldn't think it'd be an issue with power consumption, and even when I'm playing games my CPU usage is rarely exceeding 50%. What gives? The CPU isn't getting very hot either.
>>
>>602295
Higher resolution = more demanding on GPU = higher temperature = higher fan speed
>>
>>602303
I see. Obvious, I should have realized that. Like I said, CPU usage isn't high at all when I'm not playing a game, and when I do they're all pretty low spec games. I'm unfortunate enough to only have access to Intel HD 4400 integrated graphics right now, am I putting my hardware in danger by using this resolution?
>>
>>602305
No. If fan speed is already at 100% and the temperature hits the maximum threshold, the GPU will underclock itself until it cools off, resulting in dropped frames at worst. It'll be more obsolete than Windows 98 long before heat starts causing physical damage.

Is there a way to reduce the side of a video file or store it in a way that takes up less space, without losing any of its quality? I thought it would be possible by turning it into a zip file. But if it is, I can't figure out how.

Basically, I don't mind if the video takes a while to retrieve, so long as the process doesn't trash it.

Thanks, and sorry if I'm asking for something impossible.
>>
I was going to write instructions but they're too long so just let Purjat walk you through it.
https://youtu.be/15y4gfvTdus
>>
>>602277
It's almost certainly compressed already so there isn't much you can do to it.
>>602281
Video and data compression are not the same thing at all.
>>
>>602281
I can't seem to get this to work. No matter how many times I try compressing it, the video retains the same size.
>>
>>602302
Okay, that would explain it. Thank you anyways.
>>
some file types do compress better than others but video isn't one of them

video file size has to do with the encoding of the video
video quality generally correlates to the size (specifically the bitrate) of the video (up to a point)
because it takes time to encode a video and taking into account https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Generation_loss the best option would be for you to download another version of the video (assuming that video has been encoded from the original source video) that's a smaller size and see if the quality is adequate enough to replace your original video

hevc/h.265 videos can have a better quality per bitrate ratio so that would be your best bet, with the tradeoff being that playing those kinds of videos requires more cpu

I tried to do this myself but the only program I have is Gimp and it fucking sucks for making accurate shapes.

Could somebody make a simple design based on these shapes, in these positions? Preferably one color, with a transparent background, with one consistent (somewhat thick, it has to be visible from far-ish away but distinct and clear from close up too, I'm putting it on a shirt) line thickness, and a total resolution of at least 2000 by 2000 pixels, but the higher the better. I did a crude mockup of what it should look like.

This is as far as I got before giving up, I just can't figure out how to make decent triangles in Gimp, let alone the other shapes. Lines this size or possibly thicker would be good

The fuck kind of language is this? Thought it was Python but it clearly is not.

Anyway the problem is that you're trying to run a for loop from 1 to length(count) but count is a fucking number (and its value is 1, to make matters worse) not an array, you want 1:length(x)
>>
>>602294

Also forgot to mention that you have to check x[i]. not x[count]
>>
>>602296

ALSO forgot to mention that you're missing an else after the if. Jesus this shit keeps giving worse every time I look at it.
>>
>>602297

Oh my gooood also in the end they're printing count and count2 swapped. count has the number of values that are BIGGER than 10.
>>
>>602273
I don't know R, but I can spot the following errors:
1. count is established in the first line, but not count2.
2. function goes by the length of count, but not the length of x.
3. the condition checks x[count] not x[i].
4. the condition checks "greater or equal to 10", not just "greater than 10" as the task required, and thus it'll also counts values of 10 as "above 10".
5. the output is flipped. count is incremented when above and count2 is incremented when below, and the output text states the exact opposite.

Let's be honest: Not all subjects are created equally Googlable.

Post your tips (or request for tips) on how to Google a given non-trivial subject here.

Bonus points if the subject doesn't have a Wikipedia page (yet).

Thread rules: If making a request for tips/pointers on how to Google a given subject, post an image. Attaching a pic to your post helps others recognize your request as a request and gain replies. Think of it like making a new thread within a thread, but as a means of etiquette.

In Firefox at least, you can right-click after highlighting text for an option to search it immediately.
Use Saucenao's Image Search Options addon if you aren't already: https://saucenao.com/tools/
Pore through the less-than perfect results; even if they seem irrelevant you might just find extra search clues.
Reverse image search the results of your reverse image search. Even when looking the same, they can sometimes return vastly different results.
As a last resort, Googling the filename, even if it's a random string, can sometimes help.
When desperate, you might find an anime from a pic by typing every possible descriptor of the character into Gelbooru's tag search.
When looking for a competitor to a brand, type in "[brand name] vs" to quickly learn of competing models.
Typing your thought in the form of a grammatically-correct question, like your parents would, gets more & more accurate each year.

Hopefully I understood OP's post correctly
Here's how to find the source of just about any anime related picture you can find online:
Firstly, if it's an uncropped screenshot of an anime episode, trace.moe will find the series name, episode, rough timestamp and even give you a short clip of that timestamp.
For other pictures related to anime, saucenao.com and iqdb.com will search various booru (Imageboard) websites for you, and usually give you the series name and character(s) in the image.
If those websites turn up nothing, use tineye.com, you might find the source or you might find a larger or uncropped version of the image to try and reverse search.
Finally, try the obvious reverse search websites. Do this last since it actually has the lowest success rate and you have to do a bit of digging to find the original source.
Google.com/images
Yandex.com/images
Bing.com/images (I have found some sources on bing that I couldn't find anywhere else)
You can also supposedly find the source by searching 4chan archives for the image md5 and hoping someone else found the source, but it's never worked for me.
>>
>>601608
I just meant any given subject, so that qualifies as well.

Great tips so far people. Don't be afraid to share stories of spending hours searching for something only to find you had the terms wrong from the start.
