A few things that might help get those questions answered faster.
Be specific when you are talking about something - "my mp3 player is broken HALP!?"
- What kind of mp3 player, (brand and model)
- What isn't is doing now that it was before (the reason it is "broken")
- What were you doing to it last, right before it broke.. Did you maybe drop it?.. get it a little wet? try to flash the firmware?!

These all help in determining what can be done.
These rules do not just apply to MP3 players.
Just be as specific as possible and don’t leave stuff out, we want to be helpful here, try not to make it a scavenger hunt for clues!
These same rules apply for other situations like “I got a new motherboard and now my computer doesn’t post!”
-old motherboard model
-new motherboard model
-ram (speed)
and any other component you might have in there (most of the other stuff usually won’t matter but list what you know.

Well that was a mouthful...

But may I ask, what is the effect behind that in the old timely ceramic fuse installations specially, when a single fuse blows, it may also blow several completely unrelated fuses in circuits parallel to it. (I'm not meaning a cascading failure; the D-system prevents those well.)

How would I go about making everything on my old hard drive (western digital 1tb) completely gone and irreversible? I've heard using something like the program dban then completely disassembling the drive

Several random passes with DBAN should do the trick. Unless you're involved in some high-profile activities it's not practical to recover data at that level.

If you are involve in something high-profile, pop it in the microwave for 30 seconds after the afore mentioned wipe.

The most important thing is prevention of recovery. If it can't be recovered they can't recover from it. The afore mentioned volcano is a my choice but smashing the platters and distributing the fragments is the next best thing. Alternatively do a fresh install and give away the PC at a car boot in the next county or drive to somewhere with a high crime rate and 'accidentally' leave it unattended a little too long.

Thanks for the help guys. Appreciate it :)

I usually just disassemble drives down to their component bits then toss individual platters into different dumpsters I stop at on my way to or from work. However I don't have anything worth recovering on the drives.

With multiplatter drives once you snap the spindle loose recovery is very difficult, typically it requires tools that were only available in the factory at the time that particular model was in production to put the platters back into alignment.

If its a single platter drive you could always drill a bunch of holes into the platter. Can't recover data from dust.

A zero wipe of the entire drive is generally sufficient from everyone outside of TLAs. TLAs are going to try and reconstruct your anime collection by reading from the periphery of the tracks where the write head doesn't normally reach. It tends to result in a very fragmented incomplete recovery. Perpendicular recording has made a lot of the older methods obsolete, like electron microscopy.

Combine zero wipe and drilling and disassembly and sprinkling parts across a city's dumpsters and you've made some TLA drones very sad and grumpy.

Is web browsing in Slackware meant to be this slow? Anonymous 19/07/08(Mon)04:47 No. 22677 ID: 4f8972 [Reply]

File 156255406237.png - (4.09MB , 1920x1080 , vprwav77.png )

Just installed Slackware, using b43 wireless drivers because broadcom's wl drivers need firmware files I can't seem to find anywhere on the face of the net. BCM4311 if that's of any help.

I've tried browsing on firefox, tor and seamonkey. All of them are slow as shit and it takes like 20 seconds or more to load a single image without enlarging it on any imageboard site. I can't load an imgur album under 5 minutes. This laptop has 4Gb of RAM. 4Gb shouldn't be this slow. It has to be software related.

Any idea why my web browsers are all seemingly cosplaying as netscape navigator?

Why are you using ipv6 on your home network? Also sounds like your router config was bad, not your card. But interesting if it worked on M$ and not Linux.

If you have an internet connection and you're sending unencrypted data out of it, Google doesn't have to work for the TLAs.

Your ISP's backbone is split and shoveled into TLA datacenters.

IPv6 was enabled by default and every other device on the network was fine. The fact that windows was working fine (dual booting) is what inspired me to start playing with seemingly random settings. I have no clue as to why the DNS change fixed it but gift horses and all.

Hey /halp/, been long since I been here. Currently running a Lenovo Windows 7 laptop and my screen is fucked up. How do I fix this?

Anonymous 16/01/06(Wed)04:55 No. 22010 ID: 2df8ca

Plug into an external monitor.
Video good = Screen or cable is bad.
No Video = GPU or Mobo is bad.
Cable is the cheapest to replace but from my experience if you see anything on the screen then the cable is good.
Screens run about $40ish and aren't "too" hard to replace if you don't know what you're doing.
See if that model has a YouTube disassembly video to help.

I'd bet your screen is broken. ~$40 fix. EZPZ

Guessing that I was right. Did think it was the screen that was the issue, lucky I kept my Windows XP monitor. Thanks Anon.

BEST HACKER IN THE WORLD! Doncola 19/06/29(Sat)00:23 No. 22675 ID: 4f7da6 [Reply]

I spent a lot of years trailing and researching the worlds most prolific hackers. From 2000-till now Royalblade has been the most talked about and most effective hacker. I have followed his marks from when he did that college debt payment for folks on YouTube. I know about his involvement with the feds when they hired him to track and recover stolen bitcoins lost from bitfinex wallets in 2016. Dude is simply the worlds best considering that he still remains anonymous.

ABOUT A REAL HACKER Melodazed 19/06/17(Mon)06:00 No. 22671 ID: e3ad54 [Reply]

Real hackers are corky and hard to find but if you’re lucky to find one you must be cautious in your relation with them. They will get almost anything done, you just have to not waste their time and yours. My testimony is about Royalblade, data scientist and revolutionary hacker who fix my score within 3 weeks. I’m currently sitting at 822 guys, after so many years of struggling to build my score. I met with a testimonial on YouTube which was a lot of people talking about this guy. Glad I tried cause now I’m in my new home all thanks to him. Contact royalblade@protonmailCom

More than likely they've hacked your Apple ID. Change your Apple ID password. If you can't login to change your password, guess what, you found their "hack." Call Apple and go through their verification & reset procedure. Once you get back in change your security questions since they probably guessed them - I recommend changing them with incorrect information, that way they can't use Experian or similar data breaches to gain access to the information they need to get past them. Who knew your mother's maiden name was Billy Jo Bob? Not the overconfident hackers, that's who. Even if you can get into your Apple ID, change the password & security details anyway, since that's the most likely avenue they'll use.

Once you get your Apple ID back under your control, perform a DFU reset of your phone and - using a computer with iTunes installed - set it up from scratch. The steps for getting into DFU vary depending on your exact model but they're documented on a lot of sites, like here:

Note that after you do a DFU reset it will likely ask you for your Apple ID password as part of initial setup, which is why you must regain control of your Apple ID first.

It's not a virus (if they screw up they tend to double tap the keys). I've seen this before, normally it's when someone gets a new board and they're not used to it, they're still using their old muscle memory and not fully lifting off the keys.

Either that or you've jizzed on it and the keys aren't raising properly.

Slow your typing, if it persists. Disassemble and clean the thing. If the problem still persists get a new board.
