    Mad153 got a reaction from nsalomonb in LTT Apple channel   
    I'm still a bit confused about this channel.
    Linus said in the wan show it's going to be tips and tricks, amongst other things.
     
    Coming from mainly Windows, I've seen a lot of bad "tips and tricks". Common ones being disabling mouse cursor shadows to "increase" pc speed and flushing your DNS to make your internet  "faster". 
    I know Mac os is different, but I assume there's still this sort of disinformation on how to maintain a pc etc.
    I really hope it isn't going to be like that.

    Welcome to the forum!
     
    Firstly, many other brands exist. You might be able to get a better PSU from someone else.
    Ok so there's an LTT video on this, but not all SSDs are equal. Many cheaper adata drives don't have a dram cache. This means performance will be slower. 
     
    You pick. Personal preference. More to go wrong in a AIO but should be fine.

    Mad153 reacted to Skipple in Chinese Steam Explained   
    The entire video and it's context revolve around the CPP and it's censorship of video games. I'm not sure how you expect to have a conversation about the video and avoid that topic.

    Mad153 reacted to WereCatf in Dell SCAMMED Me - $1500 PC Secret Shopper 2 Part 4   
    Personally, I think Linus didn't react strongly enough to Dell's shenanigans. I would've completely blown a gasket had I found out I had been scammed like that and, if I were a fancy, coollies Youtuber, I would've let it show; Dell needs to eat a bag of dicks for their behaviour. No, a dozen bags!

    Summary
     Daniel Verlaan, who works for RTL, noticed that, in a now deleted tweet by Dutch Defence Minister Ank Bijleveld,  of a picture of a private conference hosted online between EU defence ministers, the meeting id and 5 out of the 6 digits of the pin were in the picture. 
     
    Having guessed the last digit, He then joined and said hello.

    My thoughts
    I'm surprised this hasn't happened sooner. So many systems work on outdated legacy software such as windows XP in ATMs, I'm not really surprised this happened. Sure, this conference software is quite new, but the execution of software (no 2fa) is still very old school, especially for a conference of such importance. 
     
    i believe this really is a wake up call for companies and governments during this pandemic to make sure that their accounts and therefore meetings are secure.

    Even a best security system is defeated with enough stupidity of its users. You can make much simpler and safe system for users that are knowledgeable, but if you have bunch of illiterate normies who will use even the best system, they will still spill the beans somewhere. 
    1. Keycards, encrypted pendrives -if user lose it because he/she is forgetful 
    2. Two factor authentication -same for forgetful users
    3. Phishing, gaining personal information to reset the passwords, get clues -if users are naive, uninformed, stupid
    4. Server storage methods that depends on it specialist input and mainteneace -negligence and laziness
    5. Truly automated systems that can be circumvented by only inside knowledge -blackmail
    6. Multiple layers, automated security systems -hardware spy chip hoisted that will nullify any encryption taking place
     
    Therefore a good system has multiple layers of security. The fact that they don't used such system means they are either stupid, or truth be told -the meeting didn't have REALLY important information after all

    Mad153 reacted to minibois in Mechanical switdhes for typing that aren't mx blues   
    Cherry MX White are rather uncommon, which is why I assumed Kailh BOX White.
    Personally I think the clicky BOX switches as a better choice too, if you feel like you press down Blues too easily.
     
    Reason being, the Chery MX switches all have a design catered towards linear switches. The clicky switches just added what is called a 'clickjacket', which doesn't provide too much of a clicky feel (in my opnion).
    The Kailh BOX clicky switches have a clickbar, which creates much more resistance, without just making the spring heavier (which is the different between a Cherry MX Blue and MX White).
    The silver part in the middle there is the thing that provides much of the clickyness of a Cherry MX clicky switch, with the white teeth on the blue part also having a part in it.
    The Kailh BOX switches have a 'clickbar' (the metal wire/spring on the left) which gets pushed by the switch stem.
    In my opinion, this makes Kailh BOX clicky switches better than Cherry MX clicky design.
     
    But again, I had to use "my opinion" quite a few times here, because it really has a lot to do with personal preference. Maybe you wouldn't like these switches, it all depends on what you prefer.
     
    If at all possible, it's best to get a switch testing kit, with a couple different switches, to actually feel for yourself what you might like most.

    Keyswitches are incredibly personal. Something you like, may be something someone else dislikes.
    I think Kailh BOX White (which I think you are referring to?) are great clicky switches and indeed do not press down as easily as a MX Blues (which is a positive thing, if you lean on your keys and find your press down MX Blues quickly).
     
    Kailh BOX Jade/Navy are of course alternatives, which are quite close to Kailh BOX White. I would check out those options.

    Don't want to hijack this, but common sense is absolutely not enough.
    It doesn't protect from:
    Network attacks (windows firewall is terrible as it can be disabled using a simple script) Hijacked webpages. I remember classic shell's website started serving malware a while back and nothing would give you the hint it was malware until you ran it and your pc because toasted.  
    Malware bytes free isn't very good. It doesn't have 0 day protection as far as I know and no real time protection. I would recommend sophos free or bitdefender free. Both are amazing.
