  1. Valve themselves was only fined 1.6mil eur. Which is 2mil usd roughly. The 7.6 was the total fines issues between valve and all 5 publishers.
  2. Based on figures from 2017, this fine was 0.04% of their yearly sales revenue. Given the current state of the world they would be making waaaaay more money now, it's like the EU was just following them around scraping up change that fell out of their pockets.
  3. didn't want to derail that raid apology thread, but just wanted to clarify something about what you said about VPNs

    • obfuscate your traffic from your ISP,

     

    My understanding is that your ISP can still see the domain you're connected to, but not the direct page/content.

    Eg for this

     

    https://linustechtips.com/topic/1295488-response-to-linus-terrible-non-apology-about-raid-sponsorship/page/4/

    all the ISP can see is

     

    Linustechtips.com

     

    but anything after the / is hidden/jumbled or something? I don't remember where I heard this, so i don't even know if that's accurate

      No, the ISP should only see there's a connection created between your computer and the VPN server you connect to - a random IP in a country you choose.

      The DNS requests, the transfers, all happen through that encrypted connection.

       

      It's basically as if you're in that country at the location where that VPN server is located - any website will think you're physically in the datacenter where that VPN is located.

       

      Even when you're accessing linustechtips.com directly, the isp may not know you're accessing linustechtips.com

       

      The ISP may see you've requested to resolve the linustechtips.com to a IP if you're using the ISPs DNS, or if you're not using DNS over https  - if you use public dns like google dns or opendns or cloudflare the ISP can log traffic from you to port 53 (dns servers) and detect you asked a random dns to give you the ip for linustechtips.com

       

      After browser uses dns to resolve linustechtips to a ip, the browser creates an encrypted connection between you and that IP, and then sends the requests encrypted, so the ISP shouldn't know what pages you're retrieving.

      In this case it's even more complicated because ltt uses cloudflare or whatever is called as a sort of proxy / ddos protection.

      Yup, it's possible to have a DNS leak, that would be the only way for your ISP to see where you're trying to connect.

  4. Length would be measured in snakes Weight would be measured in spider eggs Temperature would be measured in bushfires
  5. I only drink on special occasions. And when I do, its only a small amount spread out over a few hours. My body hates alcohol to the point of severe stomach aches. Wouldn't call it boringly sober, I like having memories and don't see getting drunk as some kind of achievement or something people should strive for.
  6. Minimum of 12 characters is the "recommended" for what you're after. However the less "random" it is, the easier it is to crack. Combinations of english words are notoriously easy to crack. you need to make it seem random without being something obvious for example a password that would be fairly secure, but easy to remember could be something like L1nu5--T3ch//T1p5 Most brute force attacks would easily substitue common letters for numbers like E > 3. I > 1 etc. but adding other random characters can throw it off But even if you have the most secu
  7. right click on the black part in the partition table at the bottom and select "new simple volume" and follow the prompts
  8. Does it show up in Disk Manager? most NVME and M.2 need to be initialized before they show up anywhere else.
  9. I would first recommend getting a cheap pair of in-ear earbuds before spending money on TWS. Actual in-ear buds, ones that insert into your ear (not like the apple ones), because most TWS buds insert much deeper into your ear than you would originally think and can be extremely uncomfortable if it's nothing something you've ever worn before
  10. i just cold booted my laptop and it's at 70k. So unless you've gone in and disable a WHOLE bunch of internal components, you're not actually running enough and i'm surprised your PC isn't crashing or having major issues
