    What to get my girlfriend for a 5 year anniversary?

    Something handmade?

    Anyone else not crazy about RGB?

    Less noticible PC, the better. I do need an illuminated keyboard (prefer red or white), don't like the color palette of My Little Pony, smeared across the hardware

    How screwed is my work.

    @Mr. horse Well, a lot of advice here is to jump ship and I agree with that, but I don't know what happens on the inside. I can only wish Godspeed!

    How screwed is my work.

    Sounds like something that a professional can pick up on and can shift the blame on towards the company (you picked it up and acknowledged it, so can another person tasked with indemnifying the CC company) I would say pack up and GTFO, not because of their shoddy practice, but because your job is to rectify that and for legal purposes, you may end up becoming the fall-man for whatever happens in case of litigation, despite the lack of co-ordination with upper staff. You might want to go through your contract, if there is a possibility that you could be held liable, you need a new job.

    How screwed is my work.

    Can you reasonably estimates costs of a potential attack and the financial loss that will be incurred and the probability of an attack? Send it up and essentially they could lose their Intellectual Property (commercial works, like code, documentation etc.) and that it would hurt them in Public Relations and could harm customer trust which could in turn harm the organisation's prospects? The higher ups want profit. Show them the profit is in dire risk and that the fix is using decent security, that cost of securing systems is lesser than the loss incurred in an attack. This is, if you really give one. If you don't, document everything, past attacks, violations of compliance standards (if they are ISO Certified or something) before you got there, make requests to fix them and document their refusal. Then move (copy) the evidence away of their incompetence from their systems onto yours so that any malicious attempts to remove it in case of any attacks and an attempt to shift liability can be lifted from your shoulder (note: IANAL, this is just what comes to mind) They really WannaCry, don't they? (only ransomware that comes to mind that can be in a sentence)

    What do you guys spend your time with?

    Instructions unclear, blew inwards and now there is a bubble upstairs. Myself? Writing code that I'll never deploy, composing music without any knowledge about theory, playing around Reddit for the memes.

    What song are you listening to right now.

    Bougenvilla - Kendari
  9. What are the benefits of getting DDR4 memory over DDR3? I want to consider the purchase of a i5 9600K for a budget system that I am working on but it has a limitation of requiring DDR4 memory, is there any tangible benefit of DDR4 as DDR3 sticks are cheaper and the cost stacks up as there is a requirement of at least 32 GB of RAM. The 7700K + 32GB DDR3 RAM (8x4) is $472, 9600K + 32 GB DDR4 RAM (8x4) is $587 and the 9600K + 32GB DDR3 RAM (8x4) is $500 I considered a 7700K but it has worse performance compared to the 9600K (https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i7-7700K-vs-Intel-Core-i5-9600K/3647vs4031) and cost (from the retailer I am purchasing) doesn't have much of a difference, so it seems like a worse bargain. Can I get away with installing DDR3 RAM on the 9600K? Should I shell out more for the DDR4 sticks? Is there enough of a performance enhancement to justify purchasing the DDR4 sticks?

    Google Chrome and Account Questions

    Before deleting, hope you downloaded the archives of your older accounts (I've lost stuff in the past) Yes, it isn't immediate, there is a very short period that allows you to still reverse your deletion request. Yes, no reason for customization if from new account No, no reason for transfer of old details if not logged in on new system No (but to prevent sync issues, just login with the new one, if you login with both - cross-syncing does occur (though not sure for Chrome, does happen for Android)) Not sure, haven't used Chrome in a while, you can always reset Chrome or use a program like CCleaner I don't really know, again - haven't used Chrome in a while
  11. When they said Intel Inside, they weren't kidding, there's apparently a lot more that can go inside now...
  12. Hmm, why do you think it'll be detrimental to custom PC hardware industry? Personally I think there would either be no change or even faster advancement in hardware.   The new custom made PC, tricked out with a really fast Ethernet card! Buy today!
  13. Hmmm... JoliCloud, a cloud based OS is sort of ringing a bell, isn't it dead now? How many people I know use Office 360? There's users who'd prefer using 2007 then ever switch to 360. Are there many fans of Adobe CC? I still cling to my CS5. Why is there this liking in having everyone switch to cloud-based subscription models? Chromebooks are a goldmine in requiring subscription services for being useful in the long-term, a regular Windows laptop or a speced-out old MacBook (for budget reasons) can far more volatile and aren't determined by rules of monthly payments just to keep your stuff somewhere.

    Bethesda removes DRM from Rage 2 after just two days

    Am I saying Denuvo is great and that I will sacrifice my pet sheep in praise of Denuvo? No. As of now, even though Denuvo is getting bypassed right now in a few hours, it is certainly better than no protection at all. uPlay DRM, Steam's DRM etc. are getting cracked with little resistance, Denuvo offers slightly-more-than-little resistance. It is a good thing that after serving it's purpose, Bethesda got rid of it for performance improvements. But, the alternative for the DRM tap-dance is DLCs as you advance and authentication protocols that require a constant internet connection even if you want to play alone. So, I'm okay with slightly less FPS and a little shite performance if that means I can play offline. The alternative for them instead of going the DLC and online-only route is to release on closed platforms only (i.e. consoles), now we don't want that, do we?
