    Shreyas1 reacted to Master Disaster in Valve will create a Steam Deck compatibility catalog for every game available on Steam   
    Pretty much yes, if it is Verified on Steam Deck then it can work on almost every Linux system. Notice I said "can work" and not "will work" though, system specific configurations will affect real world results.

    Shreyas1 got a reaction from soldier_ph in Valve will create a Steam Deck compatibility catalog for every game available on Steam   
    I assume this means these games will all be compatible with Linux in general?

    I thought it was common knowledge that work/school laptops are always monitored? I mean it's supposed to be a work device

    Oh man, this is going to blow up overnight and just explode tomorrow. I'm breathless just thinking about it! I really hope they don't blow it, it would surely deflate their ego. I'm a bit worried about the leak though, this seems like the kind of thing that might just be all hot air.

    I mean... Yeah?
    If you get a laptop or phone for your school or workplace, assume you're being spied on and they know everything you do on this device. It's not a "personal device" that you've bought with your own money, it was "given" to you, by them. They expect you to only do work on this machine.
    In addition, if you are ever asked, after logging into some services like MS Teams, if you want to allow your "organization" to manage your device, which is ticked by default, DON'T accept that, untick it and select "No, sign in to this app only" at the bottom. Otherwise you're giving whoever manage your email domain access to your stuff, which they could even remotely wipe if they so wished.

    Shreyas1 reacted to RejZoR in The day of the simp - Twitch git leaked on 4chan   
    Its because no one wants yet another god damn games client. Everyone can try, but ultimately, people are just not going to go with it no matter what. Steam was the first. GOG found its niche with old games. The rest are just copying it. I don't want to run 10 stupid games clients. Steam and GOG are enough. I only install Origin for those few games that I ever play from EA and that's that.

    Shreyas1 reacted to leadeater in Ransomware claims first human death, an infant during birth   
    Yes and no, an MRI machine won't have internet access but the control PC will have to be on the network so logins can be authenticated and images loaded in to PACS imaging systems etc. It's all about points in the chain, something somewhere cannot be as isolated as others and when other systems and processes need that and it's taken down you impact everything around it that has to interact with it.
     
    Also connected to the outside internet isn't even the issue, first a computer having internet access doesn't immediately mean it can be attacked, far from it in fact. Systems may also only have internet access to specific URLs and endpoints.
     
    Entry points in to networks are almost always, many decimal points after 99%, from standard workstations and then those workstations compromise other computers and systems on the network either by directly infecting them to or encrypting files on any network shares it has access to that are connected or it could find. Then if the malware has remote access capability and the attackers are actually targeting this network and it's not a fly by or by chance infection they will access this workstation and use well known methods to find and gain access to higher privileged account(s) (this may happen first) and then direct access more sensitive servers and services.
     
    When you have been compromised like this generally speaking you don't leave things online in the hopes they haven't been compromised and try and figure out what has been, you take everything offline, isolate foundation systems and inspect them and work to bringing those online and work your way out from there. A weeks worth of delayed non essentially services is much better than continuing operation while patient data is leaving the network or systems are compromised to the point you can't trust the information or it is now incorrect.

    Shreyas1 reacted to BobVonBob in Amazon New world Killing GPU's yet again   
    These could be failures caused by New World, or these could just be normal failures attributed to New World because people are hypersensitive to it after the whole EVGA mess. Hundreds of thousands of people are playing New World. It's guaranteed that some of their GPUs were going to fail anyway, and happened to fail while they were playing New World.
     
    For what it's worth, my money is on the latter.

    It's possible, but that's kind of what ChromeOS is for. It runs android apps too if that's what you're after.

    That's the last thing you want, giving social media more important information about your life.

    Shreyas1 reacted to LAwLz in Protonmail exposed as logging IP Addresses contrary to their previous policies   
    Doesn't really matter whose fault it is or why they started logging.
    The end result is that you can never be sure whether or not Protonmail is logging your activities, and therefore should be treated as logging your activities.
     
     
    What do you mean "an overstatement"? Just because your browser has a fingerprint does not mean it is used for anything.
    It's like saying "what do you mean the police collected fingerprints? Everyone has a fingerprint so it's right there. What an overstatement to say the police collects fingerprints just because they look at peoples' fingers and then archive whose fingerprint looks like what".
    Yes your browser has a fingerprint, but it's how that data is collected and what it is used for that matters.
     
     
    What do you mean? 
     
     
    This is a horrible and extremely stupid opinion to have.
    We don't know what crime that has been committed.
    We don't know if the person is innocent or not.
    We don't know if this has happened more than once.
    Even if he is a criminal, this sets a very dangerous precedence where it can be abused.
    Even if you are a criminal, you have some rights, and they certainly shouldn't be "taken away for good".

    Shreyas1 reacted to Middcore in Fixing The Verge PC Build - feat. Stefan Etienne   
    Pretty much. It's obvious neither he nor anybody else in the decision-making chain had the knowledge to do that video properly, and even if he realized it he obviously didn't feel he could refuse or push back. I also don't doubt that some of the "criticism" he received was racist and beyond the pale, so I will cut him some slack on some of the defensive stuff he said in the aftermath. I put way more blame on The Verge for how they handled the situation. They puked out a bad video, let Stefan be the face of the debacle when he was probably doing little more than following a script, and then attacked the livelihood of their critics and only succeeded in Streisand Effect-ing the whole thing.
