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.)

System administrator wallpaper bypass Anonymous 18/11/21(Wed)10:34 No. 22614 ID: efb18f [Reply]

Hey /halp/, 7ch isn't blocked at my university, so I thought I'd ask if anybody here knows how to change a wallpaper when the system administrator blocks desktop personalisation. I'll actually provide some troubleshooting information as well, rather than being a total pain.
OS is Windows 10 Education Edition.
#1 - Browsers can't override it; IE11 doesn't even have "Set as desktop background" as a selectable option.
#2 - File Explorer's "Set as desktop background" is selectable but does nothing.
#3 - Windows personalisation is restricted on desktop background and screensaver tabs, managed by system administator.
#4 - There isn't any generic wallpaper.png or etc. to swap out in Pictures.
#5 - Can't edit or access the registry to change the wallpaper key in HKCU.

No idea why they do this stuff, I'm only going to waste my time to undermine this tbqh. They've only just implemented this pointless policy.
Also let me know if there's a more appropriate board for this question.
Thanks in advance, /halp/.

I'vd been out of the "hacking" game for quite a while, now. 95/98/ME/XP were my playgrounds.

That said, if there is already a wallpaper in use, can't you just find that file and replace it with a different picture and give it the same name? Do it from a linux USB or CD if you can't write the file from windows?

Unless the wallpaper is looked up on a server somewhere and updated on each boot or something, which I find doubtful.

I have a similar question:
I want to change the go-to-screensaver/turnoff - monitor time on my computer at work, but those options are not available (but you can change your wallpaper all you want, go figure)

Why? So I can be away from my desk longer and nobody can use the state of my monitor as an indication of how long I might have been "missing".

It's a Windows 7 machine,and they use active directory to lock everybody down.

But here's the kicker:

Usually they'll put the background in a restricted folder that normal users can't write to. At login it'll update that image with a copy from the server so any changes are only temporary.

It sounds like your workplace defined the 'prevent users from changing' setting but didn't define the value itself. They're different settings in the policy, all they have to do is enable it and populate it with their preferred value and voila, a uniform time is enforced.

95/98/SE/ME were very different creatures, it was actually a problem to limit users since by default users had full control. NT is the opposite, users normally have no control and administator features must be explicitly added. XP suffered from being long in the tooth by the time it was retired with a dizzying array of patches plugging holes while simultaneously opening additional holes.

I use Private Internet Access, because I paid for others and they were terrible at P2P. Some throttled the downloads if they detected any torrent activity, even when they claimed they didn't. Anyway PIA is a no logs service.

I got one of those for accidentally seeding a shitty movie. The legal firm wanted $300 in damages. It would cost them more to fight me to get some restitution of less than $10/year, and they have Harvey Weinstein cases to focus their legal assets on now. I never used proxies for P2P prior, because the DMCA people tended to only go after dedicated seeders.

Anonymous 19/01/07(Mon)20:43 No. 22643 ID: a870df

Mine was from my ISP who was contacted by Paramount. They have the 5 strikes policy in effect now with all the major US ISPs, essentially you get 2 strikes then they throttle your bandwidth, after 3 more strikes they terminate your service.

That was for a single movie I downloaded. I only seed to 5% so most of the time when it finishes downloading it doesn't sit there seeding because it uploaded 5% while downloading. Finally, I only seed/download one torrent at a time so they can't bitch about me seeding/downloading 5000 files.

Nord will nuke your connection if you P2P to a non-P2P node. And their P2P nodes tend to get overwhelmed at weird times so you may have to flip-flop between servers periodically.

I prepaid for a couple years of service to get the cost under $2/mo. For the most part it works fine, though connecting to a new server always fixes it for at least a couple hours when it slows down.

It'd make more sense for you to email the manufacturer/seller and ask them directly rather than asking on some dead gay internet board.

so there's no real reason why it got disabled? i mean,one day it was working fine.the next day i logged in and it said "your account has been disabled".how would i contact facebook to restore this account

Anonymous 18/10/29(Mon)02:13 No. 22605 ID: 1e5fb7

The one way of finding that out would be contacting support. Then you can make the case to have it restored.

Anonymous 18/11/01(Thu)15:20 No. 22606 ID: a870df

>no real reason
Most of the times accounts get disabled because you chose a weak password, used the same password on multiple sites, or your system got infected (AKA "free software isn't free") and they gained access to your account that way.

Once they gain access they then make a complete ass out of themselves until the site has little choice except to turn off the account.

actually i just clicked on my ublock origin icon and just clicked that big blue thing and it disabled it for that page

Anonymous 18/10/18(Thu)02:46 No. 22586 ID: 1e5fb7

Other adblockers usually have a right-click to block function but Ublock Origin's whitelist kind of works like a text editor for programming. This guy breaks down how to do it for videos on twitch and youtube channels without whitelisting the site and the same method should work here.

That works too if you don't mind whitelisting the whole page.

Anonymous 18/10/18(Thu)03:25 No. 22587 ID: a870df

I usually just click on the video a few times.

I think you click it to load the video (trigger click to play), click it to pause, then click one last time to play.

Its a little fussy and there is some odd timing involved but once you get the hang of it this works without whitelisting the page or site.
