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.

On this side of the pond it certainly is, at least among the kind of people who give a crap. I don't, but assholes are gonna be assholes.

The joy of driving a 20 year old car is none of that fucking shit applies. Though in most states they're not allowed to pull that thanks to regulations.

So I just got a cheap new laptop about two weeks ago. Every now and then it would do this shit. Now I can't get it to stop. I've tried the easiest solutions like restarting, uninstalling and reinstalling flash, and updating my graphics driver.

The only suggestions I've found online are to disable ActiveX (irrelevant because I use FireFox) or to disable hardware acceleration which after a bit of searching I'm not even sure my graphics driver supports.

If it helps I have:
-AMD Radeon R5 Graphics
-Windows 8.1
-64 bit

Please /halp/, I wish to continue my dickin' about on the internet even while I sleep.

Lets say that in theory I have a computer that I want to install a rootkit on in my possession.

How would I go about doing this? Be as specific as possible.

>How would I go about doing this? Be as specific as possible.
Well... you install the rootkit. The how of it comes down to the specific rootkit you're using, read the instructions.

Anonymous 14/11/28(Fri)04:58 No. 21544 ID: eb89c4

Yeah, but which one do I install? How do I make sure it's not detected?

Hell, where do I find one?

I'm running Windows 8.0. I'd like to make my desktop background a calender, similar to a physical desktop calender that I can edit. Do you folks know any free software I could use for this, or any way to do it you may have stumbled upon? Random pic for just starting a thread.

Attempting to clear ALL browsing history, but that's taking a while.. also tried to download Firefox to use, but alas, no save file works.
I can save shit locally, like MSpaint stuff, but i dont want to screenshot just to make saves.
Screenshots dont download programs, either

Ok, I appear to have been able to fix the problem. No idea what was wrong, but I'm glad it works now

Aircrack handshake issue Anonymous 14/10/28(Tue)03:18 No. 21507 ID: cfa45d [Reply]

File 141446272936.jpg - (119.26KB , 721x379 , injection.jpg )

I have been messing around with aircrack for the first time. Everything works until I get to the handshake... I made sure my card supports packet injection (pic) but after I run a deauth (regardless of how many times) it's not showing the handshake.

I was running "aireplay-ng -0 0 -a [Access point's MAC addr.]" to deauth because no client or handshake is showing, it works but still no handshake.

If I continue I get a "read(file header) failed: Success" error, or an error saying no valid handshake in the .cap file.

Is it something I'm doing wrong? Is there something I'm not seeing? I have been trying Google but nothing that really helps. Usually I just see threads that suggest more consecutive deauths and it's never really resolved.

Anonymous 14/10/29(Wed)21:44 No. 21508 ID: cfa45d

Well I've tried various different APs and when I try to attack the capture file with Pyrit it says no handshake found. I figured maybe it was capturing it but not showing an Aircrack. I also tried capturing the handshake with wifite and I'm having the same issue, no handshake.

Does that mean it's just my wireless card, even though it says it supports packet injection?

Anonymous 14/11/13(Thu)13:12 No. 21531 ID: cfa45d


No one? I've done my research on how to do it. I know the steps and what to do next. The only thing I'm stuck on is this handshake issue. It should have captured it by now and I've done the commands properly.

Anonymous 14/11/14(Fri)19:42 No. 21532 ID: 10d6c2

Sorry, I haven't played around with aircrack since WEP was the only security option. Every time I went to play with it after that period the hardware I had wasn't supported, so after a while I just stopped checking.

Choosing a mechanical keyboard Anonymous 14/11/02(Sun)16:07 No. 21511 ID: 0ce1c4 [Reply]

Hello /halp/

I come to you for help and advice regarding one important question: Choosing a mechanical keyboard

for the longest time I have been using cheap shite keyboards for the longest time but I have recently decided to change that

What I'm looking for is a Mechanical keyboard that will last me a long time, I plan on using it for Gaming and everyday typing

The keyboard has to have:

- Good mechanical switches that make it easy to type and use, I'm thinking of going with Cherry red
- Back-lit keys
- Sturdy and solid construction

Right now I'm considering getting the new Corsair Gaming K95 RGB keyboard that recently came out, it looks very nice overall, there is however one thing that is bothering me is that the previous models of K70 and K95 seem to have a lot of problems with dead back-lit LED keys

not a shill 14/11/03(Mon)15:46 No. 21516 ID: f5283f

if you find yourself wanting macro keys for video gaming consider the Razer Orbweaver.

if you want macro keys for programming check this shit out son: http://xkeys.com/xkeys/xkdesk.php

if you find yourself wanting mechanical keys there are a wide verity of switches to choose from. >>21515 are a few.

if you find yourself wanting a colorful keyboard might I suggest sparring yourself from corsair's overpriced product line of boards and look for other outlets to flamboyantly spout your desire for color, I think there's some sort of parade for that kinda thing.

If you find yourself wanting every bell and whistle that keyboard has to offer I would suggest reconsidering whether or not you actually need any of this.

If you find yourself wanting to never buy another keyboard for the rest of your life, buy a model m.

HD crash Anonymous 14/11/02(Sun)22:41 No. 21512 ID: 2d01f0 [Reply]

File 141496447918.png - (8.00KB , 500x450 , 1412729496615.png )

My external HD just crashed.

I got a weird message saying a file was not working in the HD, and suddenly I couldn't access it anymore. I couldn't turn off/on the pc with the thing plugged in either.

When I connect the HD the system recognizes it but the names of the files don't flash on the screen anymore. And as soon as I try to open it my pc freezes.

Lifehacker site says this is probably caused by "degraded magnetic media" (bad sectors). Says I should let a pro handle it. Is this true? What should I do? I need my data back...

Thanks, Its western digital, supposed to be good. I know I should have made a back up but I only had it for 2 years, didnt think it would crash this soon. Running checkdisk r atm, looks bad.

>Any data you "need" should be stored in cloud storage.
No, it shouldn't be. It should be backed up to several independent locations, whilst cloud storage may be one option it doesn't have to be.

Especially naked pictures. Otherwise how will we ever get another massive dump of nude pics?

You should have your data backed up onto a second device, so that a single failure won't cause you to lose data. If you keep a third/forth/etc. copy in other physical location(s), that means even if your home burns down your data is still safe.

You could buy another case, crack open your existing case, and put the HD into the new case. Most of the time this works, since OEM case chipsets are unreliable as shit.

Although recently I've noticed Seagate has implemented really weird fucking disk formats that prevent you from accessing your data in any other case but theirs. Which is just fucking awesome when their case fails out of warranty. Last one I looked at stored data in 4 partitions of varying sizes and each partition was in a proprietary format - I would guess the drive stored data you accessed the most in the fastest partition and data you didn't access at all in the slowest partition, but fuck if that's documented anywhere.

Okay guys, I have literally 100s of thousands of pictures, saved throughout my channer career.

I am looking for a good free picture organiser. Very preferably one that can process huge amounts of pictures without raping my RAM(or at least without raping it too much).

Any suggestions?

Also, how do you organise your pictures?

You're going to want VisiPics. It's a duplicate image finder that's small and doesn't use a ton of resources. Won't really help you organize, but it will definitely help you shave down the amount of crap you have to sort through.

For Windows, an old program named ViX by K_OKADA was the fastest image viewer/organizer I've ever used. The website seems to not exist anymore, but perhaps you could glean something from the Wikipedia page:
