This is gonna be hard to explain, but i'll do the best I can. Basically, I have a desktop computer, but it doesn't have a wifi card. Because of this, I use an ethernet chord and connect the desktop to a laptop. This laptop has a wifi card, which is connected to a router wirelessly. There are certain restrictions with my place of living which restrict me from connecting the computer straight to the router. Is there some sort of way i could use a vpn on my desktop to mask my ip? I know I could run a vpn on the laptop and it would work, but the laptop is really damn slow and i don't want to go through the trouble of installing the vpn on it. It's fedora 23 btw, and my desktop is windows 10.

Also, I could try to get rid of the graphics card completely and just use my motherboard so i could install the adapter(i wouldn't really want to considering it would probably hurt the cpu to process that much), but every time i've tried that the monitor just goes black and I can't get it to work.

Personally I don't trust free VPN services - it costs money to run a VPN server and provide bandwidth and they've got to pay for it. The obvious way to do it is to monetize your traffic. So I don't know if there is a free VPN service that supports double or triple NAT without any router changes - my gut says no, simply based on the way VPN is supposed to work, but I simply haven't looked. There may be a free VPN service that spies on your data that cuts the necessary corners so that you wouldn't have to make any router changes. Since you seem adverse to making changes on your laptop creating the necessary fixup rules are probably out.

Your ideal solution would be to have the desktop directly on the network. Assuming you have a USB 3.0 port I really don't see the harm in getting a USB adapter, it should be reasonably fast and work about as well as an internal NIC.

I don't know why your motherboard video doesn't work, perhaps you disabled motherboard video in the BIOS/UEFI. On my ASUS board I have the option to disable it, enable it, and enable it when a video card is present. At work on my prebuilt I have no options - it's enabled when a video card isn't present and disabled when one is present. i7 4790K vs i7 4770, both include a GPU, but the options in BIOS/UEFI are a bigger difference... OEMs never expose as many.

Am I missing something, can't you just connect your PC to your laptop via ether and share your wireless connection with it?

The router shouldn't be able to see the PC as the only directly connected device is the laptop so unless they're sifting and snooping through your traffic you'll be fine.

I was able to find a copy of A Canticle for Leibowitz hosted on this board, and now I'm seeking a digital version of the sequel, Saint Leibowitz and the Wild Horse Woman. Does anyone have a copy they could provide? I'm not picky about the file type, and I'd be most grateful.

Wanting to learn a program language two questions;
1. What is an easy beginner language to learn.
2. What language after the beginner language to follow up with.

Just learn Python 3. Its highly documented, easy to use, easy to program and will give you a good idea on what you're doing

alternatively, if you dont really like python, try Ruby. its a different approach to the same thing.

after that it depends on what you want to do. If you want "practical for moneys", learn Java, or C#, or C++

if you want to do OS dev, or microcontrollers, do C

if you want to do webdev, do JS, PHP, HTML/CSS, SQL and see what frameworks interest you(Ruby on rails, node, angular, etc)

if you want to be a special snowflake, use Lisp with SBCL, Hasklel, or ASM

just dont start with C or Assembly, really. a bunch of retards who didnt start with it will say you'll learn how the computer really works! which is largely untrue. Autistically managing resources is a waste of time for most development. using malloc isn't a hardcore skill.

1. Python is a very easy language to learn, especially if you understand the fundamentals of programming.
2. I would say C, or maybe Java, since Java has a higher level of abstraction.

I'll be different and say start with Racket. Don't even think about a second language yet though. Where you go next is a bridge to cross when the time comes.

BTW, I started with BASIC in the 80's, immediately followed by Z-80 assembly language. Now I code in C and Perl mostly. But anyway, asm back then wasn't so difficult because the machines were much simpler (check out MOS 6502, for example). Actually BASIC->ASM path would still work fine today if someone happens to have a simple 80's machine. Modern hardware and OS are too big of hurdles for that sort of thing.

Interesting, thank you for the detailed response I will definitely implement a back up system now.

Personally I trust CDM to not be shilled by any one data recovery service, mostly because the dev is a fucking autismo moonruner, and it's released under a bsd licence.

To solve this problem, do the following exactly:

Open $browser
Go to $shoppingSite
Order new $hardDrive

Anonymous 16/08/25(Thu)01:53 No. 22166 ID: 5a53ee

My only concern with your plan is that new drives tend to fail within the first 3-6 months, so without a backup he's just as screwed.

His backup drive could fail too, don't get me wrong, but the likelihood of two drives failing at the exact same time is unlikely.

I've done it, Anons. I quit my job which I hate. Although my family and friends are in a panic because I don't have another crappy minimum-wage income waiting for me, I am entirely comfortable with this. I need a month off to write a particular book, anyway.

One way to supplement my savings while I am not working is salvage. By "salvage", I mean a polite term for dumpster diving. It's not a consistent form of income, but I am more than willing to give it a try.

The pictured book is the Art and Science of Dumpster Diving by John Hoffman. He also wrote Dumpster Diving: The Advanced Course. These books are out of print and getting harder to find. I had to order the former twice through Amazon before I finally got my grubby mits on a copy, but there is an ebook form of it available. I give both a huge recommendation and can go into detail if anyone is interested in reviews.

I have been a scavenger since college when my allowance wasn't quite enough to cover both bills and food. I have never before attempted to sell nor trade anything I have recovered. Turning forty this year, I decided to rent a small storage unit and return to this hobby.

I will begin giving a summaries of what I am finding in following posts. Hey, I don't like seeing a wall of text in an OP either. Summary: I am having way more fun diving than I ever did at any job.

There was some attempt to get supermarket dumpster-divers legally protected, after a handful got arrested for trespassing or even theft, for taking food (past it's display until, but not use by, date). Dunno what came of it, though.
Industrial estates might be worth trying, if a company is closing down they will throw out all sorts of stationery, office equipment etc. I got a "broken" laser printer in 2005 (admittedly this was from another company in the building where I worked, so I knew it was there in advance), put a new drum cartridge in it (£40, in the days when the worst brand-new laser printer would be over £150) and it's still working today. Admittedly I don't use it very much, not sure if I'll be able to get any more toner when my two cartridges run out.
Also, as OP has established, building sites are wasteful as fuck. They throw away stuff they simply can't be bothered to carry back to the van, sometimes. You can get unopened packs of all sorts, slightly-damaged (or just dirty) tools etc.

Modern Mom 16/08/13(Sat)05:37 No. 2870 ID: a58fb8


I had a couple friends that started a side business cleaning out sheds, garages,attics and basements. They had a van. So they got paid to clean out the spaces and to haul away the "trash". They sorted the stuff and then sold what they felt was salvageable at flea markets once or twice a month. They pulled down some decent money and double dipped.

Modern Mom 17/02/21(Tue)10:51 No. 2965 ID: aa90ac

why would you spend $50 month to sell a used scuffed up door no one wants. i love dumpster diving , but damn watch those storage prices.

used vacuums? good luck selling those. i bought a dyson for $50 and fixed it up , nice ass vacuum.

heres a better tip. grab every usable item out of dumpsters, house flips , etc. clean it up a little, document it, and donate it to charity. taking the donations off your taxes.

i second the guy talking about working as a house cleaner. the guy they hire when they want an entire house worth of crap gone. i did it once , just one old guy who died. he had 300 $30 shirts. i guess he just wore one after the other each day of the year. fuck laundry!

filled up an entire van full of household items. kept the good, donated the rest.

only problem now is that i found out im a hoarder. so now every week i try to get rid of 10 boxes of shit.

My cousin refuses to pay for insurance every year because she refuses to accept the credits that would help her pay premiums. As a consequence of taking this moral stand she's developed serious medical issues that require treatment, the cost of which would exceed the cost of the premiums (before she gets any credits, with them it's far cheaper). So she's doing the sensible thing and going untreated and the letting the problems continue to get worse. She could easily afford the subsidized premiums, though she'd have to cut back on partying.

I've got dental insurance but it only covers $1000 of work each year and only allows work at a small list of dentists. $1000 covers basically one root canal & crown a year and that's just the insured portion - it takes me the whole year to pay off the uninsured portion. When Dubya's wonderful recession hit I was out of work for long enough for my teeth to go to shit, all these years later and I'm still fixing them up one each year.
