/g/26960 Building a PC
Inspite of everything, I've given myself the medium term goal of building a decent PC, with a view to updrading it over time. I need to edit video and I'd like to play games on it, of course, so since Monday I've been doing some fairly basic research and making sure I wasn't playing myself by adding any daft components I don't need.

The following link is my basic idea that I'll be adding further SSDs and more RAM to over time, but I'd like to know if anyone has any advice, generally or specifically, about building a PC and possibly saving money while doing so. Video cards are still slightly mysterious to me right now.

It's enough to build and secure* a decent size and quality material greenhouse which I could use as a nursery to supply people with lots of free food plants every year, indefinitely. Myself and various charity/local-NGOs would foot the ongoing bill for the soil/compost and pots. Two and a half grand would be plenty, I can do the installation/labour myself.

>The fans counting down to 19:04 before they start the City Til I Die gave me chills down my spine. Allam's been trying all sorts to stop that, the other game he turned the screen with the clock on off for a minute around the 19th minute and last week he had the clock made tiny so you could barely read it, which I believe is where the countdown came from.

Got no idea what this is going on here but I'm really curious, what's the relevance of 19:04 and why is Allam trying to stop it?

Prince Andrew set up firm with disgraced Coutts financier Harry Keogh

The Duke of York has gone into business with a former Coutts banker who quit in disgrace over allegations of sexual harassment.

Prince Andrew has set up a company with Harry Keogh, who left the Queen’s bank in March 2018 after he was accused of touching a female colleague inappropriately and boasting about his sexual exploits. The new venture, which The Times understands will be a vehicle for Andrew’s family investments, is named Lchronic masturbatorles after the 18th-century battle against the French in which the British were commanded by the Duke of York.

At Coutts he was accused of touching a woman’s groin while demonstrating the site of an injury. His behaviour was said to be so toxic that some female staff refused to work with him. The private bank carried out an investigation in 2015 and the chief executive recommended he leave, according to The Wall Street Journal. It was decided that he should stay, but he was disciplined and eventually resigned in March 2018.

He sure knows how to pick them.

Probably the only kind of person willing to work with him at the moment. Although I don't really know why he needs a vehicle for family investments unless he's trying to hide assets before Charles gets to the throne.

Exclusive: Dutch Cops on AlphaBay ‘Refugees’

>Following today’s breaking news about U.S. and international authorities taking down the competing Dark Web drug bazaars AlphaBay and Hansa Market, KrebsOnSecurity caught up with the Dutch investigators who took over Hansa on June 20, 2017. When U.S. authorities shuttered AlphaBay on July 5, police in The Netherlands saw a massive influx of AlphaBay refugees who were unwittingly fleeing directly into the arms of investigators. What follows are snippets from an exclusive interview with Petra Haandrikman, team leader of the Dutch police unit that infiltrated Hansa.

Sorry for the necrobump but didn't think it was worth a new thread.

Basically if someone theoretically wanted to start perusing dnms (for research) what's the easiest, idiot proof way of doing it? I've got a mac I use for day to day browsing but from what I've read I might be better off just buying a cheap laptop specifically for the purpose, then basically use TOR and TAILS?

If you know of any decent idiots guides for this sort of thing would appreciate a point in the right direction.

The easiest option is to run TAILS on a burner laptop. It's designed to be relatively foolproof and is used by a lot of people to do proper naughty things, largely without incident. The TAILS documentation is pretty good and you shouldn't find it too challenging to get running if you're reasonably tech savvy. If you know what an ISO is, it'll be piss-easy.

TAILS is designed by some very smart people to be extremely secure, but it isn't 100% guaranteed to protect your identity; there is a very small chance that your machine could be hacked, causing your true IP address to leak. This is highly unlikely unless you're doing Extremely Naughty Things that make you a high priority target for a major intelligence agency, but it can be mitigated if you think that's a realistic threat model. If you do think that's a realistic threat model, then you need to teach yourself infosec to a high level or get treatment for your paranoia.

TAILS provides a very high level of anonymity, but it can't guarantee privacy - any information you send over the network can potentially be intercepted or seized. That's not a big worry if you're just buying a few dingers from a reputable seller, but it's certainly something to be aware of.

Why's no-one suggested weed yet, am I imagining its effectiveness? Any night I'm planning on MD, I'll have my house clean and comfort food ready for the next day and get the bacon sandwich + water, but skip the walk for chainsmoking joints. It usually works quite nicely.

As mentioned above, it gets easier once you just accept you're going to feel shit and that you're essentially just going to be surviving rather than living for the next day or two.

>Drag queens banned from performing at Free Pride Glasgow event over fears acts will offend trans people


>The organisation said in a statement that it hopes to create a safe space for all members of the LGBTQIA+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, intersex, asexual) community, and that while the decision may "disappoint" some people "the needs of the most marginalised groups within our community come first."


>Free Pride Glasgow said: “It was felt that it [drag performance] would make some of those who were transgender or questioning their gender uncomfortable. It was felt by the group within the Trans/Non Binary Caucus that some drag performance, particularly cis drag, hinges on the social view of gender and making it into a joke, however transgender individuals do not feel as though their gender identity is a joke.”

Life rarely takes the piss out of itself like this. It almost sounds like the plot of a South Park episode.

Would a transporter poo have the same post-poo sense of fulfilment as a regular poo or does the action of taking a poo induce a euphoric effect? I know the vagus nerve is stimulated when you have a big poo but is it the physical motion that it likes or just the emptiness.

My dad used to call our house 'NAJIS', which stood for 'Not a Jap in sight'. I was only like 9 or 10 when he started doing this. He was working with Sumitomo Bank at the time so was presumably a bit tired of immersion in Japanese culture.

Legally speaking the result was correct, because (quite bizarrely, IMO) second and third degree murder doesn't actually require an intent to kill, only recklessness. Under English law, Chauvin would be guilty of manslaughter but not murder.

The broader issue is that the system has wriggled off the hook. This verdict is being heralded as a moment of seismic change, but there's no hint that any systemic change is actually going to happen. There's no inquiry into why Chauvin was hired, how he was trained and why he kept his job after numerous complaints. There's no inquiry into the socioeconomic circumstances that leads people like Floyd to repeatedly come into contact with the police. This verdict is a victory for the "a few bad apples" defence of the status quo. Chauvin may well be a bad apple, but the whole barrel is still rotten.

I like how you posted this literally minutes before the USDOJ announced one.

Can you post something about how none of us are just going to get a million quid handed to us? For science, obviously.

The classic "Arrested for possession of melanin" defence.

Anyway, I remember seeing something last year where possibly the mayor of Minneapolis said he knew there were bad, racist cops, but he couldn't fire them because the police unions are too powerful. If he sacked a man like Derek Chauvin for nothing other than hurting liberal feefees with his hatred of smelly thieving darkies, every cop in the state would go on strike and it would all turn into Robocop. I find it very odd that this can be the case at one end, while Amazon employees vote against forming a union at the other end.

Anyway, Chauvin looked very fetching in his suit during the trial. Just a lovable rogue. I'd bum him if I saw him in prison.

/boo/5227 Renters UBI
The way I see it eventually we probably will see something like a universal basic income but it will intersect with the time when property prices become truly unaffordable for anyone but the very wealthy. At that point you will have a system where a class of landlords are being propped up by public money and funded by the renters - who need jobs because the UBI will all go on rent because of demand. Perhaps rents will even exceed UBI in some areas.

Sure you might still be able to live in crowded or dilapidated homes but it will be an impoverished existence that will keep those working who have the limited skills not taken by automation as the landed get richer and richer.

This is something somewhat highlighted when you first saw UBI as an idea take hold around 2016, a blog from Shelter notes that it's simplicity is bloody terrible when it concerns the housing market because costs of living differ and many households - single parents or large families - would be disadvantaged. To make matters worse the solutions can prove impractical because there would always be a period of residency involved to a local rate and that will have to account for the fact that rental contract usually span a mere 6 months:

Are we fucked? Posted in /boo/ because I think this one might be true.

>I will just move somewhere else, like Ireland or Australia!

If you've spent any time on international websites you will notice that being priced out of ever owning a home is global phenomenon. There's no escape unless you can make do in a rural setting away from jobs and services.

The claim that bitcoin mining uses more electricity than Ireland, Argentina, Denmark, Ruritania, etc. is an incredibly common one with at least some evidence to support it. I assume that most people will be familiar with such claims, which makes it a good area to get in a small joke while working towards two separate points: absent a distributed ledger like cryptocurrency, it's hard to see what advantage a digital currency offers over pounds, but with a distributed ledger you're introducing pointless inefficiency to transactions for little obvious reason. ("Trust", but the BoE is already trustworthy.)

I'm sure the point you wanted to make (unless you just dispute the energy use of bitcoin) is that other cryptocurrency options are far more efficient than Bitcoin so it's unfair to imply that they'd use similar amounts of energy, but it's hard to imagine any of them get it down as low per transaction as traditional digital banking. Whether the energy used is likely to be country-sized or simply "a bit inefficient" is ultimately irrelevant to the point either way, so it's a good place to throw in a quick joke that plays up wastefulness.

I will admit that it has occurred to me that with house prices the way they are, and with government policy openly insistent on keeping them that way, we are now a nation of rich ballers with 50 grand in the bank that we refuse to spend because we're saving it up for a house. If you can persuade people to invest these collective millions in the economy, you can do great things with the economy while simultaneously getting your dick sucked by seedy private landlord scum. But cryptocurrency investments piss all over normal investments, at least at the moment, so vast amounts of this country's money are being spunked into magic cash-numbers instead of job creation and wealth creation and shit you can put on your manifesto. My God; it's almost like they know they're fucking hopeless at this.

So they want to jump on the cryptocurrency bandwagon. Sorry if any of this doesn't make sense; I went to the pub so I could get coofed on and die from coronavirus and now I am heroically inebriated ayyyyyyyyy

I've sailed past the 30 mark and I've noticed in recent years that the Devil's drip after urinating is getting worse.

I'm a male in pretty good shape, exercise, and regularly have erections/orgasms. I thought my "mind-muscle connection" with my pelvic floor muscles would be fairly good, and even practice Kegel exercises after I piss, so why all the leakage?

I've got a working theory that it might be down to too much sitting. In the same way people lose the ability to fully flex their glutes even when they try, the same is probably true of the pelvic floor.

I think I'll adjust the height of my desk and stand when possible and report back to you lads.

What do you lads think? What is it in the physiology that makes this occur?

Do you think you got more sensitive to the drip or did it actually get worse? As in, are you leaking post pee or are you more bothered that you dribble a bit?

I'm uncomfortably close to my 40s and noticed similar, I was quite sporty before the work-from-home times so I don't think that was the issue. There are basically no occluding muscles between your urethral sphincter and your glans, so you have a couple of inches of "dead" pipe which no amount of training or will power can empty on its own.

Lightly pinch the base of your shaft with thumb and forefinger on either side and run it up to your bellend. You can't do this at a busy urinal but it works.

I'd still mention this to a doctor which should be the policy for anything slowly knackering with time. Your theory seems off like the otherlad said, I'm not in shape at 32 and certainly not now but don't have the issue which can only be explained by all the wanking I do. Do more of that possibly?

Push down on the perineum lightly, it'll get out the last drops. Do you drink much?

It probably doesn't cause lasting problems. Someone be a pal and let me know if it does.

You know, I was actually thinking about making a thread on this exact issue myself. It's not just you lad.

I thought it was because I've been putting too much up my arse as I've gotten older and more deviant, leaving the muscles saggier and weaker, like a leather sofa you've been sitting on for ten years. But I am more rationally compelled to believe it's just age.

The mystery is why it was so much less of an issue as a younger man. What exactly has changed here, considering the fundamental anatomy is the same.

/uhu/2916 Mosquito Proofing
Mosquito season is nearly upon us and I refuse to be eaten alive like last year. Do either of you have any tips to keep them at bay?

Reason I ask on a glue board is that I've looked into netting for the window on my flat

These make use of adhesive magnets but I wonder if that is going to leave marks which is an issue as I'm renting. Any past experience using these or ways of avoiding permanent marks from adhesives would be appreciated.

uPVC has reasonably good chemical resistance, so you can use white vinegar, isopropanol or even dilute acetone to remove any adhesive residues from window frames. If you need to stick anything to a painted surface, use 3M Command Strips.

This would be the case, painted wood you see. Although I'm not sure 3M have what it takes as it'll need to hold magnets, mesh and metal bits over a 52 x 38 space. I use the hooks internally but for a window that could create some force if the winds is pushing at the mesh.

We've got two phones here with their screens smashed to bits, but that's the only thing wrong with them. The cost of either replacing the screen or getting the data retrieved (I forget which) is about fifty quid so we'd rather not.

All we want is to retrieve the data from them; there are irreplaceable family pictures and work stuff on both.
I think they're both samsungs. Is there a cheaper way of doing it? We have the PINs, is there some software we can plug them into maybe, emulate their screens on a monitor or some other way to get the information out?

Amazon too - most screens are about ten quid now for old phones; you just need the right screwdrivers and a couple of hours on iFixit.

Putting pones back together (nicely) is the hard bit a lot of the time, If you don't need to do that, and you don't care about knackering the old screen as you take things apart, it's about as easy as it gets. Watch youtube videos.
I've done a few now, with good results. Amazon/ebay screens aren't always defect free, but again, you don't care.

The cheap chinesium "open all" screw driver kits also help, you should be able to get one for a few quid. Do not abuse them, they work just fine for the inside a mobile phone but won't screw your door hinges back on without disintegrating. A decent spudger also helps, if you have access to the metal banding used in packing a 2" section with tape around one side works wonders.
