Hello folks, I solved the original issue in this post myself but I may use the space otherwise. A bit more simplified question, but very closely related to the original problem.

Q: Which is the best free AV software you'd recommend? Or would you generally recommend a paid product in this case? I'm not sure if it's worth to pay for scanners or such but I think about it after some mysterious issues.

I've to admit I never had any (major) virus issues yet, even with freeware products, but my guess is that this more likely due to my personal behavior rather than perfect AV software. Anyway, thanks!

Most usually it's Common Sense 2020, great software. It's also worth getting uBlock Origin for your browser because that blocks malicious sites so if you are ever redirected to one you will stay safe. But if you absolutely need a software and need that peace of mind then I recommend to snoop around https://www.av-comparatives.org which is an independent organization comparing antivirus software based on several different factors. If you go to the test methods you can see all the factors and read the charts on each and every one of them.

Hey all. Long time no post. 

 

I'm having an odd login problem. I can't login to a website on my phone but I can on my partners phone and my laptop etc. The websites I am logging into require a redirect from a secure login portal. It gives me an error that password is incorrect, even though it isn't. 

 

I've emailed the It support back and forth but they have no idea either, and I tried their suggestions. 

 

Here are the details:

 

Android

Samsung S9

Latest version of Android

Browsers tried Tor, Operamini OperaVPN, Chrome, Mozilla 

 

What have I tried? 

Changing browsers

Using Wifi

Using VPN

Clearing cache and cookies (website doesn't require anyway) 

Other mobile devices (they work) 

Other devices (they work) 

Changing site password 

 

So what could it be? My next idea is to do a factory reset and restore but it's a hassle and It's never a seamless experience. 

 

So if you have further suggestions, do tell me, I would like to get to the bottom of this.

I'm having an odd login problem. [...]

Not sure if this helps but I had a nasty login problem once: I couldn't login cause of an invisible captcha. The script was broken or something, I couldn't see the captcha and due to that the login permanently failed.

This was a host misconfig, some days later it worked again. I couldn't fix that on my own. Maybe you have a problem like that, maybe the webmaster even don't know it himself because I was also filled upped

with unhelpful standard-replies from the customer support when I had this issue. This issue was originally created by the captcha software itself, or it's implementation not by the website per se, that's why the

admin/support had no clue. I figured out, it was even an international problem. Maybe you can rule out things like that? If it's not an important login, I'd simply wait a few days before you start to dismember your

software and/or the support.

There's very little reason to use anything but Defender. Some other products are marginally better in terms of detections and false positives but most of them come loaded with bloatware and nag you to buy the commercial version every 5 minutes.

Hi, here's a question out of bordem & curiosity

 

Are there still any RP groups for gta 4 on modern consoles?

If so, i'd like to see them to try some gta 4 RP on Xbox One soon

If not, thanks anyways

So awhile back I asked a question about having these random cassette tapes with music of a genre I could never work out. There were good suggestions on what type of music it was, but I've finally discovered what their exact music form is. Apparently it's known as 'Lofi'. Here is an example:

 

 

Just figured I'd post an update. But yeah, this is pretty much the exact style all those old cassettes I had was. Honestly wished I still had them because I strangely love this form of music.

Might sound a bit vague but how does not being attached to someone who you were attached to, anymore feel like, or at least how did it feel like to you? 

 

Was just musing that when I get attached to someone (doesn't have to be romantic attachment) I don't remember losing that attachment even if I haven't spoken to that person in a while or even if I've only seen that person on TV or something like that. So I was wondering if it would feel like more of a slow process where you gradually stop liking them or is it one of those things where it's like a switch was flicked and you don't like them that much anymore?

It varies from person to person, both as an individual and regarding the person you're trying to shed attachment of. Sometimes it'll fade and you'll find whatever feeling you had is replaced by pretty much nothing, neutrality almost. Sometimes you'll forget altogether and you might see something in the supermarket that reminds you of them. This still happens to me for a number of people, be they old flames, friends that have died or just those I've grown apart from. At first that reminder is a strong one, like when you finally think of a word you've been trying to remember all day, and then eventually you just recognise that "such-and-such used to like those" before moving on. Obviously I can't comment on those that I've forgotten completely because no memories are triggered.

 

It depends on circumstances, really. If a break-up was bitter or if they were a bit of a twat, it's more like a switch going off, yes. Other times it's nobody's fault and the attachment might still linger but it's like grieving. The feeling never really goes away, you just get better at dealing with it. Age helps too. Things that used to matter to me ten and fifteen years ago now mean bugger all.

Sure. But quantum determinism is kind of philosophically moot. What's the practical difference between outcome of a coin flip being undetermined, and you not knowing in advance whether you'll get to experience the version of the universe where that coin came up heads or the one where it came up tails?

 

This does also technically allow for free will despite universe as a whole being entirely deterministic, but the specifics will depend on how you actually want to define freedom of choice, and most people will keep shuffling goal posts on that one until they come to a conclusion they're happy with, so it's not really worth discussing.

Not exactly. But talking of philosophy, solipsism regards determinism in relation to how existence is limited to the individual's perception of its surroundings. If the free will and dynamics of other people are simply simulations of one's own brain, then determinism could be applied to a solipsistic individual, as the terms and conditions of the world in which they exist is determined by their own mind.

 

The concept of solipsism is indeed irrational and contradicts our natural perception of time and space and what else we know of, yet is plausible as perception is ultimately determined by our neurology. Everything you think, feel and sense can ultimately be limited to the neurochemical reactions in your nervous system. If these chemicals dictate your view and sense of your surroundings, ultimately your sense of reality, why wouldn't these chemicals be able deceive you as well?

 

Can you prove solipsism? No. Can you truly ever refute it? That would be a no.

I have looked almost everywhere on Google but I can't find any information that helps me with the issue I'm having now so I'll ask here:

 

In my Android phone, with the keyboard active, everytime I press the "enter" key the keyboard closes down instead of jumping down a line of text so I could make a paragraph, it does jumps down a line but it closes soon after so I have to open it again.

 

I already tried reverting the keyboard back to the default settings, but the problem still persists.

Does your phone have a similar menu option string as this?

 

Settings > My Device > Language & Input

 

I only say this because I had a similar issue on my iPhone, but it was more relating to the predictive word function that infuriated me to no end and hindered more than it helped. I was able to change the input settings on my keyboard somehow because simply disabling it did nothing. Sometimes restoring settings to default won't work because your phone is treating the change as a default, if that makes sense.

Has Nintendo made any further statement regarding the joycon wandering issue? I'm one of the ones also going through the same issue. I figured they'd come around and update the design so we didn't have this issue anymore, but I haven't heard anything for awhile about it.

 

I kind of want to buy new ones but I'm unsure on if it's been sorted or if they still have the same issue. They ain't cheap.

Our local equivalent is called Gumtree and we pretty much get the same problems as what you'd see on Craigslist minus the creepy advertisements and lost connections stuff.  

 

Low Ballers

Time Wasters

No Shows

Hagglers 

Price is non negotiable but still tries to haggle

People who believe your item is priced wrongfully (could have a year 2000 vehicle that is being sold for $2500 and some flog will want to only pay $350 for it)

Oil rig scams

People who expect you to hand deliver something across town when it's pick up only. 

 

I believe there is definitely more however those in no particular order is what we face on our local marketplace. It's become a bit of our joke in our culture.

If it is really troubling you, you could always take a break year for another attempt at the entrance exam. I know some people who did that, plus you're 17 right? So you have a lot of time ahead to afford to take it

 

Even if you don't end up at that prestigious college, with today's digital world you could build up your skills by completing some online courses and gradually taking up some projects and building your resume that way, I keep seeing stories in the papers about how people who built their practical skills this way are chosen by employers over IIT/NIT graduates. Of course you got to work hard from here but it can certainly happen.

Accept that this is the way things are and move on. Whether it was your fault or not, we learn from our failures not our successes. Look at why you might have missed the entrance and reiterate some steps to yourself to ensure this doesn't happen again, or at least think of a plan that will help you avoid such an issue in future. Nothing is foolproof, but if you can take proactive steps, there's no such thing as wasted time. This is very easy for me to say as this is a hurdle you've fallen at, not me. However, you can either roll around in the dust feeling sorry for yourself or you can slowly get back up and carry on with your life. There will be other opportunities. If you have to roll around in the dust to wallow for a while, fine, just don't stay there too long. Your legs will atrophy.

Okay, I need some solid, deadass dating advice here.

 

So there is this girl whom I have known since July because she is associated with some of the girls in my dorm, so we are all mutual friends at this point. Me and her have hung out multiple times and there is a good chemistry between us. We have slept alone together in my dorm room after a party, just Netflix and spooning, nothing hot. However, a week later after that, she confronted me about how things were to be as the other girls have been mentioning our apparent relationship. She said she tested the waters, but is not ready for a relationship because of college (same as mine) and the aftermath of latest relationship and wants to stay good friends for now. Fair enough, but how do I play this sh*t out? I promised myself that I would make it easy for myself if things didn't turn out well when I starting seeing her by myself, but f*cking hell am I hooked on this girl in particular.

 

Do I act uninterested and mystical? Do I appear more sexually/romantically aggressive and appealing to attract her by her primal instincts? Am I supposed keep cool, wait things out, stay in touch, keep hanging out and see how things wind up? Should I date her classmate and now friend who thinks I'm hot? Am I supposed to stop myself all together?

I'd lean towards keeping it cool, carry on spending plenty of time with her assuming you can still enjoy it without getting hung up on the fact you're hooked. If something happens then awesome, if not then it's no harm no foul and at least you've still had a good time. Casually see other people if you want a bit of fun, but try and keep it out of her immediate circle just in case she takes umbrage to it.

Mostly genetics and hormones. Also levels of your testosterone. Look around your family, does your father/grandfather/older brother have (or have the potential) to grow facial hair? You may "mature" later in this regard and see your facial grow later in life.

Maybe they too started to grow facial hair later in their life. You might wanna try and eat food high in zinc (legumes or nuts for example), iron (liver, sorrel etc.) and protein. These alone won't magically give you facial hair but will increase your testosterone levels which may help your somewhat.
