I am typing this on a Macbook Pro right now.

I trust Apple more than Google and Microsoft, and I have been using their products for quite some time and have been pleasantly surprised each and every time. They make their product usage extremely straightforward and simple, and it saves me time whenever I need to accomplish tasks.

Are there any alternatives for browsing pdfs in browser that don't require Adobe Acrobat? The main problem is having to allow it each time in Firefox because it's apparently not secure.

Requirements for Secure Clock Synchronization Anonymous 10/20/2017 (Fri) 04:12:22 [Preview] No. 11578 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
https://arxiv.org/abs/1710.05798

This paper establishes a fundamental theory of secure clock synchronization. Accurate clock synchronization is the backbone of systems managing power distribution, financial transactions, telecommunication operations, database services, etc. Some clock synchronization (time transfer) systems, such as the Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS), are based on one-way communication from a master to a slave clock. Others, such as the Network Transport Protocol (NTP), and the IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocol (PTP), involve two-way communication between the master and slave. This paper shows that all one-way time transfer protocols are vulnerable to replay attacks that can potentially compromise timing information. A set of conditions for secure two-way clock synchronization is proposed and proved to be necessary and sufficient. It is shown that IEEE 1588 PTP, although a two-way synchronization protocol, is not compliant with these conditions, and is therefore insecure. Requirements for secure IEEE 1588 PTP are proposed, and a second example protocol is offered to illustrate the range of compliant systems.

Apparently I gave you too much credit when I assumed you had at least read the abstract. I guess you didn't even do that. Or couldn't, because of your poor English.

Once again, you're crying about something you're apparently incapable of understanding. You're fucking worthless.

All I know is I haven't touched my personal clocks in fifteen years to adjust for daylight saving time, or any other reason.

And I haven't worn a watch for even longer.

To this day I still run across systems and organizations that are helpless without a highly payed technician onsite to adjust for DST, actively babysit routine time-clock synchronizations, etc.

The underlying (in)security aspects are important too but—man oh man—people still can't embrace the basics.

Sounds like the plot to Aerannis. It's some inventive stealth game, although 2D stealth games are getting so good lately I doubt it holds a candle.

How long before we exclude white people from software development ? People like Linux Torvalds should not be left unchecked for much longer.

The kernel needs more diversity in order to mirror the multicultural distribution chain.

Interesting. I've noticed this too when I see a friend connect to his facebook while we are working. Sometimes I talk about a random subject and minutes later facebook shows an ad about this uncorrelated data.
I don't think they are actually using microphone, but I think it's almost certain that they correlate the data/metadata about the users with such precision, at the point to build a oracle sybil ad system.
Can anyone here understand how this is very dangerous? They can control everything using this.

i don't mean to defend goybook, but you are hugely speculating. it would be pretty stupid for a company to secretly record your microphone in code that is easy to reverse engineer
>>We only access your microphone if you have given our app permission and if you are actively using a specific feature that requires audio. This might include recording a video or using an optional feature we introduced two years ago to include music or other audio in your status updates.
this vaguness here is normal and always has been in software. companies don't understand security and privacy and don't consider them important. as such they will not carefully explain what their programs do and do not do

Summary of actual info in this thread:

1. pcpartpicker.com

2. tech contains hostile douchebags who need more bran in their diet

So, does an SSD actually make a damned bit of difference *during gameplay* for any popular games? If one doesn't give a shit about boot or load times, is skipping the SSD and going with the classic bigger, cheaper, mechanical hard drive in a gaming rig the way to go?

Depends on your ram space and your setup. I don't think you get a choice on windows, but on GNU/Linux you can have no swap space in which case it makes no difference but you need enough RAM. Can also depend on the game with level loads. Short answer, it makes a difference. A noticeable difference? Depends.


Anonymous 10/17/2017 (Tue) 01:08:52 [Preview] No. 11567 del
It pretty depends on what type of games you play as you can save money here or there by buying specific parts that will be used heavily in those games. For example, if you like to play games like Total War, you might want to get a Ryzen 5 or 7 as the threading and price will help out immensely. Those games don't really put a dent in your GPU as much as other games. If you want to play FPS' in 4K or whatnot I'd recommend spending more on the GPU and sticking with a modern intel quad core and something like a 1070 or even a 1080 if you can manage.

Another thing. I'd recommend to get a small 80-120 gig SSD to store your OS and other files and go for a 50 buck 1tb hdd for your video games. Most video games will take a lot longer to load as you're moving the data off of the platter but if you have enough RAM to handle the game's cache you're A OK. Honestly anything over 8G is enough in terms of RAM. If you can squeeze it out try getting mid priced memory modules and overclock them just a bit from there. The reason you want 8 gigs or more is because games (and most programs now) often cache the game's files in memory directly as memory is the second fastest thing you can retrieve your delicious bits from (the next up being your CPU's caches).

Then realize that it would be pretty dumb to take security advice from someone who makes bold, unequivocal statements like he knows what he's talking about, then when he gets utterly blown the fuck out, falls back on "B-but I never said I was an expert, pls no bulli pls!!!!!"
