If you flash anything over anything you'll lose anything you don't have backed up.

The flash memory is partitioned into different areas.

>>26220
It depends on what you're flashing. IIRC flashing stock images tends to reformat & wipe everything, but going to custom firmware often preserves things. Depends on what the upgrade script written in the image does.

Stock recovery... I dunno, I'm less confident that would wipe everything. I think recovery is a separate 'partition', so it'd *probably* be okay...

If your TWRP is still functional, I'd use the backup functionality if I were you to take a complete copy of your flash memory before you start. Just get everything backed up before you start; better to be safe than sorry.

20156 Vaporisers
So, who here's tagging along with this latest drugs craze?

I know there was at least one of you with good knowledge on this subject in a smoking thread we had on /b/ a while ago, but I thought we could do with a general dedicated thread now it seems more and more of us are getting them.

I've personally just invested about £50 for two Kanger e-Smart batteries with clearomisers, liquid and addendums and I'm quite enjoying this whole vaping business. It seems to be even more moreish than cigarettes, and I'm looking forward to going through some of the tastier flavours. What setups have you got? Any comment on my kit (510 battery, T3 clearomisers) if you're familiar with it? I seem to already be getting that sucking/gargling noise which is apparently to do with the liquid being in parts of the apparatus it shouldn't be, but have followed YouTube guides to try and clear it out to no avail.

Anyway, yes. Vaporising general.

Reporting my experience at just under a week in and it's pretty ace.

I've not had any cravings for proper fags even though I'm on 3mg. That might be down to the fact that you can puff away constantly but still, I just tried a fag as a bit of a treat and it only made me feel ill. Early days admittedly but I could get used to this until I inevitably lose it on a night out.

I picked up the Endura T20s Kit. Pretty cheap but I've had no problems at all and it seems well built.

So I've been using a little Joyetech all-in-one box for the past year or so, and I think it's about time to upgrade to something fancier. I was wondering if you chaps would have any recommendations? I think it'd be nice to be able to adjust the power and airflow, that sort of stuff. Just a bit more of a customisable experience than I have now, but nothing too in depth like these ones you have to make up your own heads and regulate the flow of liquid or whatever.

I like the look of something like:

https://www.gosmokefree.co.uk/aspire-evo-75-kit-free-e-liquid-free-delivery/

But I would be interested to know if there's anything a bit more exciting out there, or if you lads have any good ideas on separate tanks/boxes.

If you're broadly happy with your Joyetech all-in-one, then there's a more advanced version available called the eVic AIO. It uses the same Cubis coils as the basic Joyetech devices, but it has variable wattage, temperature control, variable airflow and a user-replaceable battery.

Whatever you buy, I'd suggest importing it from a Chinese supplier. It's considerably cheaper and you avoid the 2ml liquid capacity limit that applies to products sold within the EU. Shipping usually takes less than two weeks.

http://www.joyetech.com/product/evic-aio/
https://www.gearbest.com/mod-kits/pp_590267.html

Alternative all-in-one devices with advanced controls include the Kanger Cupti and the Aspire Plato.

https://www.fasttech.com/products/0/10014058/5020101-authentic-kangertech-cupti-75w-tc-vw-aio-box-mod
https://www.gearbest.com/mod-kits/pp_335143.html

If you'd prefer a separate mod and tank, then there are a dizzying array of choices. I think that the Joyetech eVic Primo Mini is a safe choice. It's compact while still being powerful, it feels good in the hand, it has reliable temperature control, the included tank is easy to fill and has a good selection of coils and the kit is very reasonably priced.

I've recently set up an SSD booting computer with HDD storage, which was pretty fun, but it took a long time considering I've never fucked with computers before. What other interesting shit can I do?

I've been thinking of maybe upgrading my graphics card, motherboard and CPU, probably installing more RAM, but I don't really have the money right now and can't figure out what is compatible with what. Even finding which is the most recent products of the various manufacturers is confusing. Besides ,I find I'm becoming bored of browsing the internet all day every day. Are there any cool things I could do with computers that doesn't revolve around increasing performance of games/internet? What can I use this computing power for?

Making a blind system for my window with a light detector that opens them in the morning would be pretty cool but I think that's more in the field of circuitry than computing.

So without further ado; Noob tier computer projects. What would you recommend?

I work in IT support, and come across this sort of thing all the time. The likelihood is there's a problem with the motherboard or power circuitry like >>26196 said.

Still, I would recommend unplugging the battery, holding the power switch down to flush the capacitors (does this actually work?), then reconnect the battery. In my experience, there's usually a cable to connect the battery to motherboard - it will have a plastic multi-pin female connector. See if you can find it.

Shit we have an IT guy here? Help me out. My Windows 8.1 box keeps turning itself back on randomly after shut down. I've gotten into the habit of physically pressing the O button on the PSU, so it doesn't start whirring in the dark while I'm trying to sleep and scare the shit out of me. What could it be? I'll admit just now I found my mouse and keyboard were both set to wake the computer in Device Manager but I imagine that's because that resets itself after I keep having to unplug them and plug them back into other USB ports after they randomly stop working. Christ this PC is full of demons, I guess that's what comes of building it yourself. Anyway apart from the mouse and keyboard is there anything else it could be?

You're probably done. I'd also check the BIOS to see if there's anything in there that's set to turn the PC on. This isn't what comes of building it yourself, by the way. These are not default settings, so at some point you've installed something that changed them.

I'd also chuck Win8 for 7 or 10 (depending on how deluded you are about the disparity of Microsoft's intrusion of your privacy on either).

Is it possible to associate PDF file types with Chrome but give them a different icon from HTML files? I had them like that but had to reinstall Chrome. Now PDF files have the same Chrome icon as HTML files and it says the file type is "Chrome HTML Document." When I edit the name or icon with Types.exe, Default Programs Editor or FileTypesMan, changes I make to PDF associations happen to HTML files too and vice versa.

Last time, I gave PDFs a separate icon with Types.exe but I think that might have been on Windows 7 before I upgraded to 10.

26181 Finding a CRT
I'm after a ~21" CRT TV, with a regular SCART 15.6kHz RGB input. Used to be you'd find them at dumps and markets and such but I haven't come across one in a while and the recycling place I went to today didn't have any. I can't find any near me on Gumtree or Ebay, which is puzzling as there must be fucking millions of these things around.

Am I being a mong? Where do I find one?

I've already got a huge Sony PVM for retro games as >>26182 guessed, but I need to get rid of it for space and because it's apparently now worth ~£250. I can make do with a little old TV instead. I just don't want to pay stupid prices for one when they used to go for free, god knows how many I've passed up over the years.

>>26184
I'm not that fussed about how good the display is. That said, I'm expecting to have to go through a few to get one with halfway decent convergence and geometry, but it's surprising how well many CRTs have lasted, given the astonishing engineering precision required of them, and I have fixed CRT monitors in the past so I can take a crack at adjustments depending on the design. (To preempt the warnings: I do know how to do so without grabbing the flyback, discharging one of the capacitors and electrocuting myself, or snapping the neck and having a vacuum tube explode in my face.)

I've tried mate. They don't have any, and the ones I was finding elsewhere seemed to be either 14" built-in-VHS shite or >32" monsters. Most of the latter are also widescreen which is not what I'm after, and some of the last ones before plasma/LCD took over completely have digital image processing in them, with shoddy ADC, and early real-time digital image processing chipsets that added noticeable artefacts and latency. I used to have a WEGA that did this (it was great TV for movies at the time, but the image processing was particularly noticeable on old "240p" games, and couldn't be fucking disabled) and it drove me nuts.

One's popped up on Freecycle so should have something to play around with soon. Thanks, >>26182.

I'm trying to get a domain name I can use as an email but I'm an idiot and I'm confused.

I'm looking to get 4 email addresses I can use , say bob@family.com. I don't want to just have a forwarding service to bob@gmail.com, I want to login to an actual mailbox client or webmail login and use that specific email to login.

I'm not interested in web hosting.

Is this possible, and if so where is the best place to do it? I've had a look about and I'm still none the wiser.

Easy enough to do, but not necessarily for free. You're looking at hosting your own email server, or using an off-the-shelf cloud solution like Google's G Suite or Microsoft Exchange online.

26112 Neural networking
I figured it was time for me to drag my arse into the twenty first century and at least learn how to program a neural network. It doesn't seem that complicated, but it occurs to me that I'll need quite a bit of training data.

Where can I go to get piles and piles of files? I was wondering whether I could train an AI reading a bunch of novels in text file format and then set it loose trying to write semi-intelligible sentences. Even if it's not text files, it seems that you need loads of well formatted raw data to train any AI and this is one of the things tech companies are super hungry for these days. Any other sort of raw, open, free data would suffice if anyone's got any hints.

I was thinking about writing it in BASIC (which is the only language I ever properly learnt, at the tender age of five, and so has stuck with me my whole life) or maybe in an Excel/LibreOffice Calc/Google Sheets spreadsheet (in which case free .CSV files might be preferable) because it'd be more visually comprehensible. I can just about read C++, I could probably write a neural network with it if I applied myself.

Has anyone else worked with neural networks? Are they difficult to program? What's the best language?

No. If used sparingly but judiciously comments can be of immense help for future readers but they're not "free".

Comments act as noise when trying to read code so the value they add must be worth the distraction.

They also require maintenance just like the code does, otherwise they risk drifting from the code they comment. Whoever gets to work on the code next then has to track down whether the comment provides the correct intention but the code is wrong or if the code is correct but the comment's outdated.

Good code should be fairly self-explanatory. If you're writing a lot of comments, it's usually a sign that your code is overly complex and insufficiently modular. Comments should be the exception rather than the rule, used to mark out gotchas or clarify things that are unavoidably complex.

Since any "coolness" is voided by its being fizzbuzz, you may as well opt for complete clarity.

You're quite right. If anyone brought me fizzbuzz in an interview I would walk; lack of imagination.

Hi lads,
As of a few days ago my PC will startup but won't get to the login screen, it'll then restart and get to the loading screen then say scanning disk and then repair, 100% this takes less than a few seconds. After this it takes me to the login screen and everything is fine.
Is one of my HDD's shitting the bed? Something gone wrong in BIOS?
I'm using Win10 if it helps. I've tried googling but since the string search has common phrases I haven't found my problem.

A side note, yesterday I switched my PC off after use, took a shower then came back and switched it back on, this time it booted fine but this morning the "problem" came back. It's not stopping me from using my PC though, but it's obviously not supposed to do that either.

Cheers.

Shutting it down, I close everything before doing so since I know it can mess up a shut down.
Also had no power cuts, otherwise the clocks in the house would need resetting.

The disk check function usually starts up after an unexpected shut down. Sometimes you can get infected with malware which refuses to close properly before shut down, and it's possible that malware's inability to properly close, rather than its needing to be automatically force closed, is being treated by windows as an improper shut down, promoting a disk check.

That's one possibility. I don't know anything about Windows 10, but that sort of thing is common with Windows.

If windows programs are running I wouldn't have thought it's a problem with the BIOS, but I don't really know what I'm talking about and am only replying to post my own problem.

I've managed to lock myself out of my windows 7 machine with a poorly managed password change. I've found this program, NTpasswd (http://www.pogostick.net/~pnh/ntpasswd), that looks like it'll help but I'm having trouble creating a bootable USB with it. The helpfile says to 'install the bootloader' and gives this command:

j:\syslinux.exe -ma j:

Does this look like the command for a specific operating system? I'm trying to use it with Lubuntu, which isn't working, and am wondering if I use a friends windows machine it might work (different commands and all that).

I'm not too fussed about losing my computer; taking apart the components and learning how to make a new one is pretty fun. I'd just like to recover a few files and websaves I'd made.

Live and learn, make backups often.

I did that years ago and got by just using the windows installation disc.

I think this is basically how I resolved it:

Thats great, thank you. I just hope the PC will boot from USB; it seemed to have problems booting from disk, even when altering the BIOS, when I tried to re-install the OS.

UK plans age verification for porn websites from 2018

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-40628909

People in the UK will have to prove they are 18 before being allowed to access pornography websites from next year, the government is to announce.
Websites will be legally required to install age verification controls by April 2018 as part of a move to make the internet safer for children.
Users may be asked to provide credit card details, as gambling websites do.
Companies breaking the rules set out in the Digital Economy Act face being blocked by their internet provider.


VPNs at the ready, lads.

We're not hosted in the UK so I imagine nothing will change except you may have to use a proxy or VPN to access the site.

It, and a million other sites shut down, porn is no longer normalised and kids are no longer traumatised. Unicorns, fluffy bunnies, and Theresa May's sex tape remains hidden.

Or VPNs abound, kids buy USB sticks full of filth from corner shops and pass it around.
Less technical pornhounds join my not-a-VPN redirector from >>26004 , hope I'm honourable and not logging their depravity for those nice YMCA chaps, and carry on with their pleasures.
I'm so looking forward to Tumblr, Facebook, Wikipedia, Youtube etc. all becoming unreachable because there's filth on them. The mental gymnastics needed to exempt them is going to be a joy to watch, after they collectively flip Theresa the bird.

My phone network doesn't let me get on the smutty side of Tumblr. I assume because some of the words in their website addresses have naughty words and Three's filter picks it up.

Everyone will be on TOR or something like it by the end of this decade.

25958 Abode's creative suite
I bought the old CS6 a few years back, I'm getting good value from it, but is it worth upgrading to CC2017? I don't really wanna pay monthly, and I'm hearing more and more about the cool new updated versions. So basically is it worth me shelling out?

Thanks

The monthly deal is quite good - it is worth getting the subscription I think just so that the security holes are updated regularly.
