okay cool

i got an error that said the values didn't equal or something and then windows shut down. but if windows shut itself down it would save changes (to itself) too, right?

>if windows shut itself down it would save changes
If Windows is the one shutting down then changes will be flushed to disk as part of that shutdown. The only time that wouldn't be the case is if you had an overheat condition (typically CPU) that causes the system to spontaneously power off. In that case you wouldn't see any messages about Windows shutting down, it'd just power off.

As far as why the updates won't install, that could be anything.

First the .5Gb was locked unless you were a special case (specifically backed by NVidia and actively excluded anything to do with AMD). Then they unlocked it when people realised they weren't getting what they paid for and could potentially sue. Now developers have to deliberately avoid using that extra .5Gb to avoid shit-canning performance.

It's the prequel to nVidia Gameworks, shit-canning performance all over the place so they can lock developers into their product with the promise of "extra performance".

Anonymous 15/11/26(Thu)09:31 No. 21982 ID: 26baf4

Gameworks is also about shitcanning performance on older Nvidia cards too. Even if your older card is vastly more powerful than a newer card, the newer card will get better performance.

The only reason developers are using Gameworks is to get a taste of that sweet, sweet Nvidia development monies. Having Nvidia work for free on your code is the same thing as paying a developer cash to hire someone to do the work. Nvidia just cuts out the middlemen.

It is not worth it
a couple of GTX 970's is still no match for a GTX 980 just save a little bit more and you can run any kind of games you want with a single GTX 980 than having to crossfire your cards. Crossfiring does not give you much performance it always depends on your game and how shitty it is optimized the most you will probably get is about 10-20 fps increase that is a pretty shit deal if you ask me, Just saying OP

I'm running Ubuntu in Virtualbox on OS X 10.11.4 and there seems to be something wrong with the display.

Anonymous 16/04/16(Sat)22:47 No. 22067 ID: be9aab

Open a terminal in the Ubuntu VM and run:

sudo apt-get install virtualbox-guest-dkms

Reboot it, and hopefully that should fix it. If not, there's going to be some hand editing of config files involved.

Okay, I'm new here, just throwing that out here and idk if this may be the place for this.
Anyways, i've been having problems with my phone lately (iPhone 4). The issue is in terms of storage space, I have jack shit on here (one application and 0 photos) and I still have less than a gig left in storage. I've reset multiple times and completely reset it. I've hooked it up to my computer and the only thing I could find were the pictures. I've had this little guy for about 2-3 years. This problem became relevant a few months ago and it hasn't stopped plaguing me. I've looked up solutions to this but most of them are for the 5, 5s and 6. Any suggestions as to what i can do to fix this.

I have an issue with iDevices where "Other" grows to be several gigabytes in size, even larger. Other covers Safari's cache but also data from Messages and Mail.

The problem is that while you can delete individual items in Mail and Messages to get that space back, Safari's cache is anything but temporary. The only way to fully clear it once its grown to unwieldy sizes is to use erase all contents and settings, then restore from an icloud backup. Restoring from an iTunes backup will just restore those ungodly files back into it.

Speaking of iPhone 4, I have an old one that doesn't power on. If you plug it in, it goes between the logo start screen and being off endlessly. Any ideas?

Anonymous 16/03/23(Wed)01:18 No. 22061 ID: 5a53ee

Could be the battery, but without opening it up and disconnecting the battery you won't know. Could also be some kind of serious corruption in the flash, affecting the initial series of processes that load at boot. A jailbreak gone awry could cause this, since they typically insert themselves into the boot process or otherwise try to modify it.

I got a new tablet that whenever I connect it via USB to my computer, the connection rapidly and randomly disconnects then reconnects repeatedly

I have tried other USB cords on the tablet, other USB devices on the PC, and they all work fine.

What kind of tablet would this be, and what brand of computer?

Is there a way to extend a router's signal using two wireless routers without having the 2 routers connected?
Everything I seem to find seems to require the two routers to be attached via cable.
I (hopefully) want one wireless router to "repeat" the signal in a long basement apartment with shitty coverage.
The guy who has the base router and modem in his room is a bit of a bitch about having any cables going out of his room.

The main router nor secondary routers need to support repeater mode if you string them together via cat5. All you have to do is give the two routers the same name, same encryption method, same passkey, and disable DHCP on the secondary router.

>The main router nor secondary routers need to support
don't need to support.

Its only if you're stupid enough to use WDS that they need to support WDS, and have changes made on all routers to enable WDS, and generally hope and pray that nothing goes wrong and knocks WDS offline (which it will, regularly).

Bulk Saving Images Encoded As Base64 Anonymous 16/02/10(Wed)20:50 No. 22045 ID: 78a278 [Reply]

File 145513380213.jpg - (8.35KB , 225x225 , help.jpg )

I have about 400 html files that contain images encoded in base64

<img src="data:image/svg+xml;base64,[really ass long string]">

I need some way to save these images as individual files. Yes, I can save as in my browser (firefox), but only one at a time, and there are 400 pages with as many as 100 images each. Page Info/Media also works, but only for one image at a time, selecting all and hitting save does nothing. So unless I can find some bulk method that will work with base64, I'm looking at a really, really long slog through this mess. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Anonymous 16/02/12(Fri)01:05 No. 22046 ID: 5a53ee

DownThemAll would probably work, assuming you have them all in one ginormous HTML document.

Otherwise you could try a base64 converter, although if you've put each inside an HTML wrapper, instead of simply putting each into its own base64 file, a converter may not be able to interpret it:

So I was browsing my good old ISO folder today and noticed that I had an ISO of ReactOS.
I wondered if it was still being developed, but to much of my surprise the project looks dead.
Does anyone know more about this?

well theres still some thing going on with it but thats all i know, since you brought it up. i looked and had found that they have a youtube community page. and its really active. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMo8NP-2oP35rauon-Duc9Q/videos

Its still not useable for most things. hardware support is rough at best. Interesting if you develop, but its not like you can throw this on an old system to replace XP or something.

cloning a system drive with multiple partitions. Anonymous 15/10/26(Mon)11:40 No. 21958 ID: 776200 [Reply]

I have pretty much decided that despite diagnostics I am going to upgrade/ get a bigger system HD. I'm just not sure where to begin.
I am using Windows 7.
The whole drive is like 500 Gigs and is in 3 partitions a 230 meg system drive.
A 100 meg system reserve partition that the system added during a migration to my current motherboard.
And a 250 meg partition (no this isn't all my storage space I have 2 other drives I added afterwards)
If it was just the partition with the system drive I Think I would just have to just create a System Repair Disk on a USB or something and then a system restore on the new drive. but that's only for one partition.

How would I go about partitioning my new drive to keep the current partitions (and Data) but resize the system and storage drive?
I feel like a bit of an idiot asking but really woudl like to do this myself.
If someone could spell it out in a moderately spoon fed way or point me somewhere to find this?

- or could you clone the whole drive on a larger drive and then fuck around with it with partition magic etc. ?

Anonymous 15/11/04(Wed)19:19 No. 21966 ID: 228b39

It should proportionally expand all non-system partitions on a disk if you follow the instructions on that link. Obviously if you have whole disk/partition encryption or the like enabled then all bets are off, since it won't be able to interpret the NTFS directory structure to expand the partition.

Personally the last time I had anything beyond system & boot partitions on a disk was when partitioning was the only means of controlling the block size. Controlling the block size meant you wasted less data, because a .5K file still occupied however large the block was, and smaller partitions had smaller block sizes. These days the block size is normally 4K (unless you go out of your way to change it) no matter how big or small the partition is.

Anonymous 16/02/07(Sun)19:41 No. 22042 ID: 3d0318

Use Clonezilla to image/copy the drives, then GpartEd to move and resize your partitions. Gparted is non destructive, but you can make resizing multiple partitions really slow if you dont think about the order of operations first.
