    Chunchunmaru_ reacted to LAwLz in Audacity classed as spyware   
    Pretty much every country has that.
    The US has USCYBERCOM for example. The CIA even has something called the "marble framework" which tries to make it so that cyberattacks from the US appears as if they come from Russia or China, so that those countries gets blamed instead.
     
    But in any case, sending data to Russia is not inherently bad, just like sending data to for example the US is inherently bad. Preferably I wouldn't want my data being sent to either since both of those countries are horrible when it comes to privacy and security, but neither one is inherently bad.
    The country the data is being sent to doesn't matter all that much. What really matters is what servers the data is how it is being sent, what servers it is stored on, who has access to those servers, and what the data is used for.

    Why the hell are people MORE worried about the fact Audacity is collecting data such as User country (could possibly inform decisions on language localization), non-fatal error codes (you know, to make stuff easier for people who don't know how to correct/bypass them if they pop up a lot), User OS and Version (right because if 0.1% of people are using Audacity on Windows Vista, why the hell should any budget be reallocated to supporting it) and processor in use (because who knows there could be a trend where a specific error/bug is present in X or Y processor/processor architecture. If the M1 version of Audacity has an error the Intel one doesn't, then wouldn't it be great to know the difference was the processor) than how apps like Facebook and Instagram are quite literally creating a digital fingerprint on you? This shouldn't be taking up any space in the privacy argument since not only is it completely optional, its disabled by default!
     
    The outrage is due to the word "Russia". Had Audacity been collecting this data and storing it in the US/Canada or somewhere in the European Union, there wouldn't be any outrage.
    An entire fork of a project to remove like what, 5 lines of code that were disabled by default in the first place? Is there a bigger example of being overdramatic?

    Guess what? There will be a new Audacity branch if the right people are upset just like OpenOffice and LibreOffice is a thing.

    Don't use filezilla, every linux distro has an ftp client integrated in the file manager, just access through the server with ftp://foo.bar
    Then it will ask for credentials

    The SG350 doesn't support bridge groups so unfortunately that's out.
    Can you tag the different SSIDs with a non-default VLAN and use that same VLAN for all the SSIDs on the AP?

    I think there is a misconception here, you are not using the classic "privacy-friendly VPN" that someone sells

    When working from home you are supposed to access the company resources through their own VPN server without opening any useless resource to the internet

    Notepad is designed to be as lightweight as possible and is literally just for taking notes and basic word input.
    If you want a more feature rich "notepad", there's Notepad++.

    A few years ago they did actually update Notepad. It's usually years upon years between updates but they do happen.
    Last time they added high DPI display support (or at least made it better), the ability to hold ctrl and scroll to zoom in/out, and they also added support for the Unix standard line ending (LF) and Mac line ending (CR).
     
     
    Let's just hope Microsoft doesn't mess with Notepad any further. I absolutely love Notepad++ and its plugins and stuff, and I rarely use Notepad myself. But there is a great appeal to simple programs that "just werk", and Notepad is one of them. It's such a basic tool. If Notepad is a hammer, Notepad++ is a nailgun, and I certainly wouldn't want to someone to try and "improve" hammers.
     
     
     
    And by "mess with the update system" you mean doing things like, click "check for updates".
    Still super pissed at Microsoft for treating people who click "check for updates" as beta testers.

    Chunchunmaru_ reacted to LAwLz in Wii source code leaked on 4chan after hack on BroadOn servers   
    Don't worry. The current copyright law ensures that anyone trying to use this for any purpose of improving the world will be shut down and have their lives financially ruined. Nintendo has around 140 years left of exclusivity to this code. So maybe in the year ~2162 we will get a perfect Wii emulator.
     
    The entire copyright and patent system surrounding software is so fucked... Because of this leak, emulators like Dolphin are at risk.
    Nintendo could now attack Dolphin because as soon as some code is published to Dolphin, Nintendo can claim that it was developed using their code which was stolen. If a developer proves that the code wasn't stolen by making comparisons, the developers admits to having downloaded and looked at stolen information from Nintendo. And even if the code isn't the same, Nintendo could argue that they just took the stolen code and modified it slightly, which I believe is still illegal. They would have no evidence to support the claims, but if it's Nintendo and their nearly endless funds vs some indie developer then they can just keep the legal battle going until the developer runs out of money and have to settle (and the settlement would probably be to seize development).

    A bit of an advice of what you are doing here for the 3.2 part 
     
    You are enabling AMDGPU support for legacy GPU's who primarly use the radeon driver, the amdgpu driver is builtin at least from the last 3 years on the major distros and the only AMD GPU's that will use it are Southern Islands (SI) GPU's and Sea Islands (CIK) GPU's, and what you wrote was enabling support ONLY for CIK gpu's, you actually have to put this
    Southern Islands (SI): radeon.si_support=0 amdgpu.si_support=1 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radeon_HD_7000_series)
    Sea Islands (CIK): radeon.cik_support=0 amdgpu.cik_support=1 (as you correctly wrote, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radeon_Rx_200_series)
     
    This is not needed for new gen AMD GPU's

    It just wont, they are not even interested, probably they are unaware the fact va-api actually works and it's not the garbage it was in 2010
    But I also think they prefer developing the OpenGL video decoding backend called glxsomething 
     
    Some chromium beta builds actually have hardware decoding with va-api, I don't know if there are still PPA's around there with it
    It actually is, but not for GPU's or anything media related that is supposed to work with Windows software (few exceptions with the playstation 4 controller driver for example)
     
    Are you referring to the AMD Southern Island amdgpu driver?
    That's because it's still an experimental support, using the terminal is mandatory as it's basically an hack, but not for installing classic proprietary nvidia drivers, you have the GUI for that
