  1. Hacking the cloud

    Bit of a bump but yeah... Amazon probably saw and thought if they sold more guns, more people would be pissed off with their devices and would shoot them in protest so they bought new ones off Amazon.
  2. August Desktops

    It is Rainmeter on a skin I found on DeviantArt which I slightly modified and styled to my need. Currently it isn't on because I've had to reinstall Windows due to some profile issues (strange laggy thing when I get onto the desktop) that I couldn't fix.
  3. What browser do you use?

    TBH I have 16GB... having said that, I use a RAMDisk, so 4GB is taken up by default, the rest is used when I have a guest OS loaded alongside other RAM heavy tasks. Love using a RAMDisk, means my cache is kept on a virtual drive, instead of cutting into my solid state.
  4. Hacking the cloud

    And people say the US hasn't got a gun problem
  5. What Anti-Virus do you use

    I use 4.x I keep it up to date when possible. It's scan speeds aren't bad. The only issue I have is the amount of stuff that needs scanning, don't really do it often for data, since I know it's not gonna be compromised by viruses. Any virus that gets on it usually caught immediately.
  6. Hacking the cloud

    TBH this is why I don't believe in Cloud computing for the everyday user. Yes I have a dropbox account, but I don't put everything on there... only the one or two things I do need to share with other PCs. In the business environment, it would only be useful for private networks and strongly encrypted VPNs. In fact, in some business environments, cloud-computing has been around for quite a while with file and print servers, but this is another example of why I don't like Cloud computing. Apparently Microsoft wants everything stored in the cloud so you can log onto Windows whereever you are, or something like that. Problem is that it requires a constant internet connection, which is not guarunteed, it requires a fast internet connection, again, not possible, and I don't like the feeling that I'm not in control of my data. Like the guy in the article, his stuff was stored on the server, should that've been bank details, he would've been a victim of ID fraud aswell. If I back up my files, it's not to a cloud service, but to an external harddrive, connected locally through USB. Data stored on an external USB drive won't be lost unless someone physically breaks in and steals it. Even then, if it contains important data, it's likely to be bitlocked. Yes, the guy is somewhat at fautl for having everything linked together so easily, one reason why I'm tempted to go towards using a password manager, and having randomly generated passwords for every site, instead of the three different passwords I use now, but you should also wonder how Apple and Amazon allowed themselves to be targetted like that. UK law states that data has to be securely stored. If that wasn't securely stored, and the sounds of it Apple and Amazon didn't, they are breaking the law as much as the hacker. Granted hackers are always looking for ways to circumvent encryption (I believe 256bit AES has been broken now), but security companies should atleast try to stay one step ahead of the game.
  7. August Desktops

    Cycles through my many different Steam wallpapers.
  8. What browser do you use?

    Firefox is my main but I'm starting to get a bit disatisfied with it. I have Opera, Safari, Chrome and IE installed mainly for testing purposes.
  9. What type of Firewall do you use?

    My router has an inbuilt firewall... I then currently have Windows Firewall enabled on my OS.
  10. Hosts File Update

    Bit of a bump, but still... Amazing what you can actually do with the hosts file. Circumvent the block on Pirate Bay, to preventing software from trying to access an activation server... Does this mean a fully cross browser compliant adblock? If I run the batch file does it just add the entries or does it overwrite the entire file?
  11. What Anti-Virus do you use

    Microsoft Security Essentials... don't knock it... they've actually released a good free AV. Lightweight and offers antivirus and antispyware in one... not perfect, but then again, what is?
  12. Boot Time Defrag

    So I've currently set a boot time defrag, but I was just wondering about advanced options that could be implemented, mainly scheduling options, etc... 1) Run on boot every X days. So this could be options such as Run on boot, weekly (with the choice of Monday, Tuesday, etc..), Daily, or monthly... with a tick box saying don't defrag if ran between scheduled... this would mainly be so it wouldn't defrag twice in one day... say I use my PC on three seperate occassions, it would only defrag on the first time the PC is booted on that day. 2) Defrag if X% of a drive is fragmented. This for me would be either 5% or 10%. If it's set at 10%, Defraggler would do a quick analysis at boot (or when scheduled) and check if it requries defragmenting based on the rules you have set. 3) Set which files/folders/drives you don't want defragged... or do... Boot Time Defrag by default just defrags C:\ wherever the page file is. Using a SSD I don't want C:\ defragged. The drives I want defragged at boot are E:\ (since that's where I put my programs), G:\ (since that's where I put my games), and P:\ (since that's where the page file is), although I'm not quite sure about the effects of defragging a page file. Defragging a SSD is detrimental to the drive, and offers no performance benefit.
  13. how much is 395%?

    I am also experiencing this problem. It runs fine on the C:/ drive. However, I accidently deleted something from my documents (on the D:/) and when I click scan the progress bar is at the end, but the the percentage and the time keeps changing to random amounts. It says it has found 108 files, but doesn't go to step 2. It worked fine when I put it on deep scan though :| The C:/ is using NTFS, and D:/ is using exFAT if that helps.
