    Hacxx Private Premium Proxies - Free Proxies

    Wait, what? Share your IP with God knows who for what purpose and get a reward of a free vpn to hide your IP when you are using it? Huh? Yeah that makes total sense. Come on Hacxx, enough of the referral mining fee schemes! This one is Nucking Futz. Thumper is financing this board out of his...

    Software based Security?

    Just to revisit, the hot new item Cisco "NGFW" a feature available on Firepower firewalls. So Cisco pushes a blacklist of IP's and traffic to those firewalls that have a current license. Anybody else see a problem? Exposing your assets to manipulation from the Internet no matter how secure the...

    IPRoyal Pawns - Sell your unused internet bandwidth - Earn $2 per 10GB

    I would be very careful, you are opening the door to the possibility of exposing the entire contents of the data on your phone. Your contacts, banking and credit card info and whatever else may reside on your phone. There's an old saying I was told many times, "You don't get something for...

    Become a captain of adventure in Sea of Thieves Season Seven

    I have been pondering this for a while now. I am now working for a DaaS UCaaS provider. Ironically many of my co-workers are gamers, some very much so. That brings me to my question: If most of the really resource intensive tasks are moving to "the cloud" do you really need these high power...

    Bizzarro Dell Latitude 7380

    Hey thanks for the suggestion Hotrod. Shhh but so far so good. Who knows? I think Dell did some driver updates and they may have screwed something up. The BIOS update along with doing a factory reset to the BIOS had the fan spinning from time to time but not at the proper times. Speedfan was...

    Bizzarro Dell Latitude 7380

    No. The current Dell OEM chipset drivers were already installed but I will give it a try,

    Bizzarro Dell Latitude 7380

    I have this Latitude 7380 i7 16gb, 512 NVme, it's a daily driver at home. Earlier this week the CPU fan starts making this woosh sound on and off like a pumping sound. I have already reseating the CPU with Kryonaut, the fan is clean and sometimes it runs ok. I have updated the BIOS, reset the...

    Windows 8 Windows RT

    Well I had a chance to do some more research on your specific system out of curiosity. With a locked bootloader and an ARM processor which uses a whole different instruction set than and x86-64 your choices are rather limited. It's not going to be like jailbreaking a phone or Android tablet...

    Windows 8 Windows RT

    The good news is most browser these days are html5 compatible which is what you are looking for. They are all based on the mostly webkit (aka Chromium) or Mozilla (Firefox). I guess you are up against the wall, I suspect IE (now obsolete) is native to your system. Now that I am thinking about...

    Windows 8 Windows RT

    Why would you jailbreak it? The system is stable the way it is. Not sure but I guess you could torrent as long as you used either an external drive or a microSD card as your working drive, save the internal SSD for important things, use vpn with a client that uses WireGuard protocol, it needs...

    Windows 8 Windows RT

    Use VLC for video. You do have 32GB of which like 15GB is available, a micro SD slot (Micro Center has really cheap memory cards, Amazon isn't bad either). Your screen max res is 720p, VLC will play darn near any format, not sure how much compression of video your CPU can handle, that will be...

    Windows 8 Windows RT

    2GB of RAM is a real problem combined with that CPU. A lot of the programs you want to run would like to gobble all that RAM up but that's not really even sufficient to support Windows 10. Even if you could force Windows 10 into that environment, it would be paging all those programs and would...

    Hi All...

    Theresa BlueStacks has a guide to playing that game on their emulator. It's some pretty specialized conditions to run this game using an emulator. I think BlueStacks is a good resource for figuring your problem out. Good luck! Super Mechs guide @ BlueStacks

    Brave Browser Discussion

    So here's my take on Brave and I am really trying to like it. If you believe the articles, it's the safest option out of the box. Granted that's probably true, but with a little tweaking and add-ons Chrome can be made safe. The search engine/results and search "rewards" in Brave are a very...

    Cyber Security, An Oxymoron?

    That's too bad. That was the whole point of the article. Don't know how you missed it. The double irony was the company's name, Entrust. I don't think so. You kind of missed the whole point, period. Hmmmm.

    Windows 7 DCS (Debug Only Window)

    Sounds like it may be the accounting program rather than a general Windows fault. What accounting program are we talking about. BTW No personal offense but a 12 year old Gateway laptop? Ew!

    Cyber Security, An Oxymoron?

    Perhaps but we live in a society where cars, guns, drugs kill people at an alarming rate. There are those that say eliminating those from people’s lives is the humane thing to do. The unfortunate thing about cyber crime is one incident can have a huge potential impact on huge numbers of affected...

    Cyber Security, An Oxymoron?

    Digital security giant Entrust breached by ransomware gang I mean really folks, how many dollars are companies like Entrust fleecing businesses out of with the promise of hyper-security when they can't even keep their own doors secured? Entrust Products page All I have to say is who is...
