I got a new tablet that whenever I connect it via USB to my computer, the connection rapidly and randomly disconnects then reconnects repeatedly

I have tried other USB cords on the tablet, other USB devices on the PC, and they all work fine.

What kind of tablet would this be, and what brand of computer?

How does one take off a word from abiword's spellcheck?

The manual is out of date and shit, Abiword is up to date, I tried google but didn't have any luck.

Uninstall, reinstall. Or start looking through app data and program files, that list is actually stored somewhere

Is there a way to extend a router's signal using two wireless routers without having the 2 routers connected?
Everything I seem to find seems to require the two routers to be attached via cable.
I (hopefully) want one wireless router to "repeat" the signal in a long basement apartment with shitty coverage.
The guy who has the base router and modem in his room is a bit of a bitch about having any cables going out of his room.

The main router nor secondary routers need to support repeater mode if you string them together via cat5. All you have to do is give the two routers the same name, same encryption method, same passkey, and disable DHCP on the secondary router.

>The main router nor secondary routers need to support
don't need to support.

Its only if you're stupid enough to use WDS that they need to support WDS, and have changes made on all routers to enable WDS, and generally hope and pray that nothing goes wrong and knocks WDS offline (which it will, regularly).

Bulk Saving Images Encoded As Base64 Anonymous 16/02/10(Wed)20:50 No. 22045 ID: 78a278 [Reply]

File 145513380213.jpg - (8.35KB , 225x225 , help.jpg )

I have about 400 html files that contain images encoded in base64

<img src="data:image/svg+xml;base64,[really ass long string]">

I need some way to save these images as individual files. Yes, I can save as in my browser (firefox), but only one at a time, and there are 400 pages with as many as 100 images each. Page Info/Media also works, but only for one image at a time, selecting all and hitting save does nothing. So unless I can find some bulk method that will work with base64, I'm looking at a really, really long slog through this mess. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Anonymous 16/02/12(Fri)01:05 No. 22046 ID: 5a53ee

DownThemAll would probably work, assuming you have them all in one ginormous HTML document.

Otherwise you could try a base64 converter, although if you've put each inside an HTML wrapper, instead of simply putting each into its own base64 file, a converter may not be able to interpret it:

So I was browsing my good old ISO folder today and noticed that I had an ISO of ReactOS.
I wondered if it was still being developed, but to much of my surprise the project looks dead.
Does anyone know more about this?

react os community Lemas 15/10/14(Wed)21:15 No. 21957 ID: 2bc3b7

well theres still some thing going on with it but thats all i know, since you brought it up. i looked and had found that they have a youtube community page. and its really active. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMo8NP-2oP35rauon-Duc9Q/videos

Anonymous 16/02/07(Sun)19:44 No. 22043 ID: 3d0318

Its still not useable for most things. hardware support is rough at best. Interesting if you develop, but its not like you can throw this on an old system to replace XP or something.

cloning a system drive with multiple partitions. Anonymous 15/10/26(Mon)11:40 No. 21958 ID: 776200 [Reply]

I have pretty much decided that despite diagnostics I am going to upgrade/ get a bigger system HD. I'm just not sure where to begin.
I am using Windows 7.
The whole drive is like 500 Gigs and is in 3 partitions a 230 meg system drive.
A 100 meg system reserve partition that the system added during a migration to my current motherboard.
And a 250 meg partition (no this isn't all my storage space I have 2 other drives I added afterwards)
If it was just the partition with the system drive I Think I would just have to just create a System Repair Disk on a USB or something and then a system restore on the new drive. but that's only for one partition.

How would I go about partitioning my new drive to keep the current partitions (and Data) but resize the system and storage drive?
I feel like a bit of an idiot asking but really woudl like to do this myself.
If someone could spell it out in a moderately spoon fed way or point me somewhere to find this?

- or could you clone the whole drive on a larger drive and then fuck around with it with partition magic etc. ?

Anonymous 15/11/04(Wed)19:19 No. 21966 ID: 228b39

It should proportionally expand all non-system partitions on a disk if you follow the instructions on that link. Obviously if you have whole disk/partition encryption or the like enabled then all bets are off, since it won't be able to interpret the NTFS directory structure to expand the partition.

Personally the last time I had anything beyond system & boot partitions on a disk was when partitioning was the only means of controlling the block size. Controlling the block size meant you wasted less data, because a .5K file still occupied however large the block was, and smaller partitions had smaller block sizes. These days the block size is normally 4K (unless you go out of your way to change it) no matter how big or small the partition is.

Anonymous 16/02/07(Sun)19:41 No. 22042 ID: 3d0318

Use Clonezilla to image/copy the drives, then GpartEd to move and resize your partitions. Gparted is non destructive, but you can make resizing multiple partitions really slow if you dont think about the order of operations first.

I have a nexus 7 tablet and I run into the eternal bullshit of "insufficient space " when updating this bitch of a thing. I've used 2 cache cleaning programs, deleted a game that took up a GB and still can't update even facebook.

Any suggestions that don't involve hurling this thing into a lava pit?
What the fuck?

Seriously it can't even update a 4 meg app.

Yesterday, my Dell Precision 390 had issues starting up. I got some kind of error message that spoke of the keyboard and some kind of heating issue. I hit F1 and it worked as usual.

Then today it won't start at all. The fans in the PSU just goes "woom", the lights in the front flashes and the computer flatly refuses to boot.

Please help. Is there some kind of fuse on the PSU etc that I should reset?

Technically it's a case of heat (expansion) and cold (contraction) physically moving parts apart enough to create problems. This is why 360s got a RROD, heat, contract, heat, contract, crack, RROD.

Hence the need for active RAM-cooling, yes?

Anonymous 16/01/31(Sun)09:52 No. 22037 ID: 44b7d2

You'll still get heat/contract cycles, since even with a cooler the RAM slot will not be as cold as it is when the system is off.

It's a difference of inches vs. feet, so while the problem will still occur, it will occur more slowly.

I know this isn't really tech help but it fits best here

I want to get a pair of high end headphones but i'm wondering... on every single pair of headphones i've ever had, one ear would eventually die. Do HEHs have this problem? I don't want to shell out $200+ for something that will fuck up.

Anonymous 16/01/07(Thu)09:11 No. 22015 ID: aaffb1

This looks pretty decent, but i cant say i have tried them myself.


I have had the same issue, and ended up paying $40 for a pair of durable earbuds on amazon, and it was shipped with an already broken earbud. I might try these ones myself.

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.
