  1. Hi there, Recently my system updated my Excel 365 proplus version to the latest version 1903 (build 11425.20228 ) but since then I haven't been able to create graphs or anything, I tried the IT helpdesk at school but they have been unable to do anything, does anyone know a way to revert the installed update to it's previous build version? my attempts at google so far seem to have been pointless in finding a solution, I only came across people with the same issue.
  2. looking for wallpapers/backgrounds that fit nicely on dual monitor set ups(2 1080p screens) feel free to drop nice thinngs or places to check below

  3. not ded, just inactive lurking

  4. drama within the team and the actual mind behind everything leaving them. Wendell had all knowledge and a background, where as most others where more personalities then people with knowledge, they could host pretty well but that was it.
  5. Sony has a bad past too here, this woudnt be the first time of them blocking crossplatform options. from 2017 https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2017-06-13-sony-defends-decision-to-block-cross-play-with-xbox-one-and-nintendo-switch
  6. yes it's kinda the same like that. @Sniperfox47I haven't been following the case myself really, but I believe it came down to the fact that manufacturers are freely able to use android, even without all the google apps(chrome, g+, the play store etc) However that is for the standard version of android, if I'm not mistaken it was mostly about the part where devs get forced to include all these applications if they want to make changes to stock android, like putting their own skin on it or their own app store. On one hand it makes it easier since you don't need to make another account since the google play store is there, but on the other hand it keeps other players out of the market. If apple (for example) would start to license IOS or mac OS, then they would be running into the same issue, although by keeping everything to their own they are able to get away with it, since they can't dictate other manufacturers on what they can and can't do(since there aren't any) So just like Microsoft with the webbrowser issue, google has to give people the choice of what they want to use if there are more contenders, instead of forcing both options to be there. Just like IE got enforced although there where other options available. Ofcourse it's a logical choice for a manufacturer/developer to try to enforce their own service, although(by eu law/logic) they should allow others too in the field and let the consumer have it's own choice, especially if they basically all do the same stuff, work the same and the product/platform has a major marketshare.
  7. and another video that didn't show up in my subscription box nevermind it just popped up
  8. people usually don't see the difference between white hat, grey hat and black hat hackers, you are learning to be a white hat currently(someone that hacks with permission and to gain money) which basically is digital security.
  9. companies mailing with "we care about your privacy" a few days before GDPR get's enforced is a total shitshow

  10. yes they do, they get a very small amount of money from people that watch their content while having youtube red. Before my old shit channel got demonetized I got around $0.01 total(!) from 2-3 youtube red viewers, without having any content on youtube red specifically.
  11. the british are crazy about their royalties and now someone form the colonies USA get's taken into it the murices paparazzi also eat their fair share of it, basically the two countries that idolize famous people the most made a mash up. they are mere political tools so to speak, they attract some tourism and are basically the highest ranking diplomats of a country. Outside that depending on the country they still sign laws, meaning if the king/queen refuses to sign something(although there ways to circumvent that) it already shows there are flaws in it.
  12. more, probably not, but more consistent in quality and general time taken yes, we also shouldn't forget that the complexity of the video(and the amount of shots used) also come into play, from something simple like this to monstrosities like this https://twitter.com/TaranVH/status/903480732563021824
  13. in the EU it varies by country, I can only speak for the Netherlands on this. Earlier this your the government tried to pass a law which would allow the AIVD(dutch spy agency) to tap all calls, messages and what not, this gave a huge backlash within the country and even let to a referendum about it and people voted massively against it(except the elderly who didn't get it) it lead to the law being retracted in it's current shape and being looked at, since the opposition(politicians who didn't get elected) and some elected officials saw flaws in the law after the tech sector pointed them out.
  14. it might be due to tech linked being news related, thus having a shorter release schedule
  15. I believe with the original Snowden leaks there was evidence of that happening within the NSA, so not the first time and probably impossible to stop it with current laws regarding privacy in the US.
  16. That is something which is already a thing in some countries(the Uk and Netherlands so far I'm aware) and depending on the organizer/venue there might even be a separate market place for people that have to sell their tickets for whatever reason, with a set limit on the max price(~10% max above original price) while keeping everything bound to a persons Identification Card/passport, other organizations use the ID/passport verification, but don't allow them to be sold at all against scalpers, not even a managed market place.
  17. ahh yes, it's a thing, some skull candy headphones also have it and combines it with bass tones to make it seem more aggressive and give that festival/concert kind of feel. Nice for a short while, but it quickly becomes a gimmick.
  18. A US (ex)sheriff has been caught abusing a tracking service, while on duty, without warrant to track multiple people including a judge and other police officers. Said sheriff however has been fired since, due to a unrelated case where a inmate has died, but earlier has been charged with forging of documents and similar cases. Although this might be a isolated case where it's just a single individual abusing his powers, it is still slightly worrying about how potent those programs are and how easy it is for them to use these services without warrant. The article also goes on about possible implications within the law and how it is possible for the company to have access to all this data without problems, which is legally allowed up to the point where they can even sell location data without issues, it however is a vague situation since they are also legally obliged to protect costumer's personal information and location data falls within a grey area, whether it is or isn't considered personal information that they can(and probably will) sell. It also opens up the dialogue on how well companies like Securus or isps do actually check warrants to see if they are legal, since in this situation the tracking was done without legal permission or use of warrants that forced them to give access to said locations. Although Securus only operates within the USA and it (so far I'm aware) is one of the few modern nations where it is allowed to sell information from your costumers to a third party, I find it pretty concerning that it is possible for people to have access to things like this without the decent checks being carried out. But I guess this will just be another small drop in the bucket of questionable practices within the United States; of course tools like this have benefits in search and rescue situations, although then it still has to be carried out the proper way, something that here hasn't been the case. source: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/05/10/technology/cellphone-tracking-law-enforcement.html
  19. whoops! looks like I forgot to check dates after this popped up on my twitter timeline thanks for moving it!
  20. The big old office photocopier, which company doesn't have them? Well, it might be an idea for companies to set up a policy around them, because photocopiers store a digital file of everything they copy, without encryption or any other security measures, unless you get the "upgrade". The possibility to wipe drives is there of course and judging by this scenario, that $500 sounds to more then worth it, especially if you work with information regarding drug criminals or medical information from people. The fact that those copiers can just be bought from auctions without hassle even though they have been from police departments or insurance companies like the case has been in this research, to make matters worse these copiers even go to different continents when sold, who knows what happens there to them. source: https://www.cbsnews.com/news/digital-photocopiers-loaded-with-secrets/
  21. maybe I should change my profile picture

  22. me too, sounds like heaven with some short generation gaps, but hey maybe there is a loophole somewhere to abuse
  23. I doubt it, but for that you would need to check warranties from the product and the rules of the store and what not, we can't answer this although we can predict a "no"
  24. ahh danig, that's true, I forgot about the release still having to come around.
