Much better than you, just without big brother and his megacorporation siblings knowing every. Single. Detail.

Are you sure about that?

 

 

I use proxies, noscript and adblocker when visiting sites I haven't been to before.

You are aware that most free proxy and VPN services sell your profiled and often non-anonymised browsing history to the highest bidder?

 

 

I can surf the net almost completely anonymously.

I don't think you'd be saying this if you had much of a clue exactly how easy it is to track browsing through behaviour-based analysis, even putting aside providers selling your browsing data for profit.

 

 

Most people don't care enough to understand how things work these days.

Ha.

I don't do social media. You'd have to be willfully stupid or woefully ignorant to lay your life out there like that.

 

I use trashmail. Don't have any spam and don't get offers for penis enlargers.

 

 

I use proxies, noscript and adblocker when visiting sites I haven't been to before. I can surf the net almost completely anonymously. I can view YouTube videos all day long and not get a single "commercial" between them.

 

I just use common sense.

 

I know, I know, it's weird I use common sense and don't want my whole life out there for everyone to see.

 

But that's just me. Most people don't care enough to understand how things work these days.

If you perceive yourself as anonymous on the internet because you don't do social media, allow scripts or get ads on Youtube videos then I bid you Sir a good day. Edited by Andreaz1

Anyone has used Lubuntu here? I'm trying to decide if I stay with Debian + LXDE or I go with Lubuntu, though I'd like to avoid downloading it just to test.

 

I'm trying to get as much performance as I can, its an old PC.

When I try to reset my PC, I get an error message along the lines of

"A problem occurred, no changes made"

I tried the command prompt thing, but that didn't work.

 

Suggestions?

Are there any programs that can extract/view .saf archives?

Since there a few different uses for .saf files, I'm guessing by stating it's an archive, it's the one used by McAfee, which uses "McAfee Fortress software". As far as I can gather that's only program that can open them, and it may be more difficult since they're mainly password protected if you were to try and open them by some form of brute force method.

I recently did a fresh install of Windows 10, I installed Afterburner and RivatTuner, but for some reason, stats just won't show while I'm in-game. Yes, I have made sure everything I want is marked as OSD, and yes I have pressed the right keys to toggle it, but it still won't work.

Before I updated Afterburner I had to go in game, then open Afterburner and tab back in. If that didn't make it show stats in game, I'd have to alt tab to desktop and then back in game. It was annoying but always worked for me.

Thanks man. I tried that while playing LA Noire, and it worked.

Anybody here have a Chromebook Laptop?

 

My eldest who is turning 13 is asking for her own laptop for her birthday coming up in May and was wondering if Chromebooks are decent?

 

I want to get her a laptop to where she can do her school work and be able to use apps from the Google Play store so though maybe get her a Chromebook as it doubles as a Tablet & Laptop

 

If so what do ya'll think of this one? It's got bunch of 5 star ratings with good reviews where everybody seems happy with it.

 

2018 Newest Acer R11 11.6" Convertible HD IPS Touchscreen Chromebook, Intel Celeron Dual Core up to 2.48GHz, 4GB RAM, 16GB SSD, 802.11ac, Bluetooth, HDMI, USB 3.0, Webcam, Chrome OS

Did you remember to reinstall your graphic card updates?

 

When you did a fresh install all of your graphic card updates went out the window with the reset so if you haven't than the game is running on the most basic of the graphic card.

That is what you get for messing with the nvidia inspector anti aliasing

Yes I have re-installed Nvidia Experience, and updated my drivers.

That was for GTA 4, not Mafia 3. I don't use Inspector to change settings, I use the Control Panel.

Messing with the Control Panel will affect all games.

 

Try reverting the settings back to normal and see what you get

It will only affect all games if you change values on the Global setting, I was not on Global.

 

Before the re-install I had changed the values for Mafia 3 and that's when the game was running @ 50 - 60 FPS, so the Control Panel can't be the issue.

 

However, my GPU was kinda OC'ed before, now since the reset the Afterburner settings have been reset as well. I wonder if that has anything to do with it...

For some very odd reason, Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven stutters a lot on my PC, and dips down into the 30's. My PC is more than capable of running this game. Suggestions?

compatibility mode and or setting cpu affinity to one core for the game might help.

Have any of you rooted your phone? What's your experience? Did you regret it? What did you use to root it?

 

I am looking at maybe using OneClickRoot to root my S8 as the reviews on it are good and looks simple enough to use but just wondering what ya'll experience was.

 

I have various reasons for why I want to root my s8 one of them having the ability to completely block ads as they are getting really out of hand that was the one thing I like about my iPad I downloaded a VPN Ad Blocker and it blocks all ads in broswer and apps.

 

I tried using the DNS699 app which is also a VPN to block ads but it doesn't work sadly but like I said I have a few other reasons not just ad blocking.

How can I get MSI Afterburner and RivaTuna to start at startup so I don't have to keep alt-tabbing out of games?

 

I tried the shell:startup command, and I put both program shortcuts into Startup, yet they don't start on...well...startup.
