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.

Can you open for me how ungrounded receptables concern the fire code?

After all, the grounding is what is more the fire hazard. When you have two circuits with different grounding potentials, arching may occurs -specially when a lighning strikes nearby. When everything is nice and floating, no such worries. A different story if you use one one of the pic related, they actually allow those in the US...

"Job killing regulations"? I see it so that regulations generally generate jobs, not productive jobs though.

Is there a good text editor with windows side by side like this? It would be best if text formatting and saving as doc/docx was available.

Rectail prolapse Anonymous+ 15/01/01(Thu)04:57 No. 21621 ID: eb3637 [Reply]

I'm very nervous, I don't unusually look at my anus in the mirror. But I did today because I really don't know why. And I kinda pushed my anus out (like if I were trying to poop, but I wasn't)wondering what it would look like and I noticed a red thing coming out, but only when I push out. I don't know if this is normal or not. It's not that extreme. I did some research and saw it might be a partial rectail prolapse, but I'm not sure. I don't know if that happens to everyone when they push out or not. I don't want to go to the doctors all freaked out to find out that this happens to everyone. I've always had trouble going the bathroom. Please only serious responses

Anuses are naturally red on the inside. I noticed this can happen to me as well if I receive anal sex by someone with a big cock. But it will return to normal after no more than a day or two.

Also, how far does it stick out? If it returns to normal after you push, you should be fine. But if your still worried, then go see a doctor.

So Firefox decided to act up and not show images after a certain length and/or data intensity of a session.

How do I fix it without clearing caches and risking ruining login data? Please /halp/.

Clearing your cache does not clear login data.
Preferences->Advanced->Network->Cached Web Content Clear now!

Might I also suggest going to your privacy settings and enabling this automatically. Leave the 'saved passwords' option alone though.

Memory upgrade problems 15/03/22(Sun)14:43 No. 21685 ID: d94049 [Reply]

File 142703179164.png - (826.61KB , 800x600 , emi.png )

So, gents: I'm trying to do a memory upgrade on a fairly old machine. It's Fujitsu Siemens Amilo pi 3620A; OEM shit of the lowest grade.

It has ms-7504vp-pv motherboard with nForce 630i chipset. Bios is by AMI, version 3.0L according to CPU-Z, listed "2.61" in the setup menu itself.

The board has only two DDR2 slots equipped with two 2Gb/333MHz Hynix sticks. I bought two 4Gb/400MHz sticks by Kingston replace them, and as it could be foreseen, ran into problems.

Why I'm writing you is that my system does not outright deny the chips, instead it will become unstable.

- With both sticks in, the system wont boot outright.
- When memory clock is manually set into 333MHz (667MHz in the menu), the machine will boot but Windows will give blue screen usually during startup, or quickly after. Memtest86 will show large number of errors.
- With single stick at 400MHz the system will boot but will randomly lock sometimes after 5 minutes, sometimes after an hour or two.
- With single stick at 333MHz the system is stable. Both sticks also pass memtest86 individually.

So, what would you suggest? I have rounded up the possible causes to four, from most to least possible:

Thanks, man. Plenty of keywords to google with.

Given the the sticks fail memtest86 only after some time at random pattern test, do you thing 630i actually tries to drive them (with address width double the buses are rated for?), or is there some other things that gives the impression of "almost kinda working"?

Anonymous 15/04/06(Mon)23:51 No. 21714 ID: db923a

As a little epilogua to this saga:

I had a chance to test these sticks on a machine that claims to actually support 4gb ddr2 per slot (16gb total), but couldn't get either of them to work at all. So that's that, picky hardware.

As I said, composite DIMMs need to be addressed differently than a non-composite DIMM of the same size.

I would beat whoever sold you those DIMMs about the head vigorously with a large purple horse dildo until they refund your money.

They know damn well that they only work with servers and workstations and not consumer desktops. And if they don't know then they need to find another line of work.

I was told to use Drive Snapshot but its not free.

the ultimate boot CD has a whole bunch of them
download the ISO and burn it
then boot from it
it's under HDD, then disk cloning (there should be around 6 or 7 choices

Anonymous 15/03/26(Thu)19:35 No. 21707 ID: 22684d

This. It's simpler to do with the disk unmounted, anyway. Just dd if=/dev/sdb of=/mywindowsbackup.img

(I think sda would be whatever the media the live linux was booted with?)

The culture is different, I give you that, but all that is needed is mostly there, today.

XP and 2000 were a little disappointing in that regard but as the admins cried to Microsoft "we need this stuff", the tools have trickled down to the newer versions of Windows from the server side.

I believe the proper way to do it from the prompt is to creates a system repair disk with 'recimage' and use 'robocopy' to back up the files.

This is for uniquely installed machines, for machines installed from an image the system backup will be from the image.

Correct or forest?

Buy parts, put parts together, enjoy coverage from individual part warranties.

Or buy prebuilt system from tier 1 manufacturer (e.g. not CyberpowerPC), and have someone to call when shit stops working.

970? You mean the "4GB" cards that are actually only 3.5GB cards?


Anonymous 15/03/20(Fri)04:46 No. 21683 ID: 10d6c2

The R9 290X seems to offer roughly comparable performance at a lower price point, and has 4GB to the 970's 3.5GB (a difference of 7GB vs. 8GB if you're looking at two cards).

Is it possible to create a stored procedure that will pull data from an external hard drive and restore that data to my database? If so how can I do this?

Anonymous 15/02/27(Fri)05:17 No. 21672 ID: 10d6c2

Assuming you're scanning a directory or pulling information from a file periodically, what you probably want is a combination of a cron'd shell script, that actually imports the data into the database, and a stored procedure, that gets triggered by the import (or is scheduled to occur shortly after the import) to manipulate the imported data.

Unless you're talking about periodically restoring the entire contents of the database from a copy that exists on the external drive. Then it'd probably just take a shell script to shut down the database instance, restore the data to the appropriate tables, then start the instance again. Or something similar. Backup/Restore procedures vary greatly between databases. PostgreSQL won't use the same script as Oracle.

Reaver worked for me about a year ago flawlessly. I've searched everywhere but can't find a clue. I'm using an external Atheros usb card that I know is supported.
