Not sure what to call this thread, but please do read on.
I'm looking for tech suggestions for devices that most people don't buy, but can actually be very useful and are not prohibitively expensive.
What I'm thinking of right now is to get:
>A dosimeter
To check for radiation in my house, maybe find some cool radioactive ores when I'm hiking.
>A thermal camera
Could be useful to see where my house is losing heat. Could also be useful when trying to find a short circuit on a PCB.
>A monitor calibration tool
I could calibrate all of my monitors/TVs etc. and perhaps even charge other people for it.

Do you have any of these yourself, what else would you suggest?
Any cool tech that's usually used by professionals, but might be helpful for an average guy.

I just learned there are Thunderbolt expansion cards.
I'm not surprised it's exists but I am surprised it seems to be more than a super niche product.
What do people use Thunderbolt for on a desktop PC?
On a laptop it's obvious, you use one cable for display, storage usb peripherals, charging, ethernet and whatever else simultaneously with just one cable, very comfortable.
Or you can connect something very high bandwidth like an eGPU.
What do you do with thunderbolt connectors on a desktop PC?
Only thing that immediately comes to mind is if you want to put your desktop in another room and then run a single cable between it and a dick on your desk, but that's super niche.

Genuinely curious to know if anyone here uses thunderbolt on their desktop and what for.

>>90000000 BTFO Edition
Users of all levels are welcome.
Share Windows tools, utilities, tips & tricks.

>How do I activate Windows?
HWID mimics upgrade activation to generate a permanent legitimate license.

>>Which version should I install?
Comes with bloatware apps (games, music, news, weather, etc)
Comes with basic system apps.
LTSC = 5 years support, VL/KMS only
IoT LTSC = 10 years support, HWID only
Comes with Win32 system apps, no MS Store, no feature updates, security updates only.
If you need MS Store, run this in cmd:
wsreset -i

>Do I even need IoT LTSC?
W10 Home/Pro/Edu/WS/Ent editions end support in 10/2025, LTSC in 2027, IoT LTSC lasts until 2032.

>How do I activate Office?
Installs a KMS server emulator, not ideal as KMS trips AV sometimes and deactivates. Alternatively, use MSOffice through your browser since it's free. As a last resort, you can try OnlyOffice/LibreOffice/WPS/Polaris and set it to save as MSOffice file formats.

>Where can I get Windows/Office ISOs?
Other sources:

>Is Optimize-Offline worth it?
>Should I debloat?
If you need to ask, then no. You WILL break something and then come crying about updates/store/feature not working.
If you know what you're doing:

>Is Windows 11 good?
>Should I upgrade?

Information technology vs rangeban meant for someone else (general meta discussion)
Screenshot from 2022-11-30 04-09-09
Dear jannies what is the issue?

This topic is very very much related to technology. There is no denying this.

ITT we discuss information technology solutions to a very specific problem which is also related very very much to technology.


Scenario: You wake up to see that your whole ISP was range banned. Reason is not known.

Realistically how would /g/ approach this?

Tor exits are not an option obviously.

Commercial VPNs apparently are verboten too? Never tried them, can someone elaborate?

And what about more exotic stuff like I2P ?

Could it be used as a proxy?

Addendum from the other thread:

Someone suggested using proxychain-ng and residential proxies.

> A socks proxy is typically someone's residential cable internet box or home router that has been compromised by a bot and you connect through it giving you a residential and not blocked IP but these vary in cost from $5/mth to $200 depending how many you need and if they haven't already been used but I doubt any used to post here. They aren't persistent and die often so typically each connection you use a new one and many browser plugins of squidproxy exist to chain these or switch them randomly.

Eliminating The Smartphone From My Life
I had the idea to get rid of my smartphone for a while but only now i have gathered the willpower to make a positive change.
The problem is that in my country basically every job requires you to use WatsApp and E-mail services on the go.
Im thinking about finding a cheap "dumbphone" that supports watsapp and comfortable to use.
if you have a"dumbphone" model that you think is good ill be glad to hear your suggestion.
Also if youre on the same boat as me but found another way to deal with the problem, you are welcome to share it here.
I apologise if my way of writing is not consistent with the board's spirit. it is my firs time here.
thank you :3

Optimizing image learning model
So I've been trying out this machine learning stuff as a bit of a hobby recently. I've got a pretty big porn stash that so far I've never really sorted (talking like 70k images) and this seemed like an easy way to finally sort it. I looked up a bit on how it works then manually made a set of about 1k images with categories I wanted and have built a model to try and sort this stuff. Generally using the convolution and dense filters with some occasional dropout.
Problem is it seems to get stuck around ~80ish percent no matter what I change. Seems like there's some sort of bottleneck that just modifying dropout rate or convolution level isn't doesn't work on. Im pretty shit at math so the high level what's going on goes over my head, anyone know something I could try that might get better results? I'm new to a lot of how this works.

The screen time method won't work too well for me, is there any other way?
I want to be able to hide it, so that if someone else goes through they can't see shit. For the messaging app I'll probably use telegram, self destruct dms and all.

The Distribution of Users’ Computer Skills: Worse Than You Think

"Overall, people with strong technology skills make up a 5–8% sliver of their country’s population, whatever rich country they may be coming from. Go back to the OECD’s definition of the level-3 skills, quoted above. Consider defining your goals based on implicit criteria. Or overcoming unexpected outcomes and impasses while using the computer. Or evaluating the relevance and reliability of information in order to discard distractors. Do these sound like something you are capable of? Of course they do.

What’s important is to remember that 95% of the population in the United States (93% in Northern Europe; 92% in rich Asia) cannot do these things.

You can do it; 92%–95% of the population can’t.

What does this simple fact tell us? You are not the user, unless you’re designing for an elite audience. (And even if you do target, say, a B2B audience of nothing but engineers, they still know much less about your specific product than you do, so you’re still not the user.)

If you think something is easy, or that “surely people can do this simple thing on our website,” then you may very well be wrong.

Why are so few women videophiles?

Women on average have noticeably better color distinction, it's why women pursue art more often than men. But the average woman can be content watching a DVD on $200 thirty two inch 1080p TV.

You think with them being able to notice differences in dynamic range easier than men would drive them to become videophone, but it doesn't. Why?

Silverblue vs MicroOS
Which is most based?
I'm on Silverblue, and think I will stay until openSUSE ALP rolls out, and see whether that is good. Silverblue feels like it has the best chance of being supported for a long time. ALP seems like it will make MicroOS redundant, but if it is good, I might consider switching.
As it is, they are both very good. From my short experience with both, it seems like MicroOS has some things going for it tho:
>no codec cuckery
>more minimal in general
>flathub preconfigured and available from the start
>zypper > dnf imo (when using containers)
The only real advantage I see to Fedora is more support + documentation, and being more mature.
