My father just reinstalled Windows 7 and the Windows update does not fetch any updates. What might be the problem?
I want to run some servers (wiki, ftp, etc.) on a separate computer with a decent HD on it (probably 1TB).
Mostly just for personal use and fun. Is anyone else doing this or tried this? Would like to hear some stories about how it went for you?
Also I wonder where to find all the potential boards for it. I know about raspi and don't want one so I'm thinking I'll probably get a beaglebone black.
What do people mean they want to run servers?
To me all servers are, are game servers like hosting your own bf4 server or minecrap server...
I guess ftp makes sense, but what the fuck do you mean running a wiki server. What even is that?
>completely disregarding the fact that I immediately mentioned ftp servers make sense too
But wtf is a wiki server. Like you're gonna make your own wiki for whatever and then host it? Or you're hosting an already established wiki just for yourself? If not how do you host it and get it out to public?
does your windows 7 also hangs even for hours on searching for updates every month when they release new updates?
I have an old Nokia 1110i(pic related) lying around. Are there any fun projects I can do with it to get a basic understanding of electronics.
I majored in liberal arts, have minimal experience working with tech
pic related: its the phone im talking about
Is dark mode objectively superior?
I used to be a dark-fag. Computing with dark themed interfaces with the blinds shut, but for over a year I converted to the light and I think it's way better for you.
Open the blinds, let the sunshine in, and use the default "light" themes for everything.
What's the best way to store unused wires and cables?
I actually organized my big tangled box of cables a few months ago.
All I did was get like 20 plastic grocery store bags and start putting types of cables into their own separate bag. Nothing is labeled and I still have to search for shit, but now I search for a cable by going through my pile of bags instead of pulling it all out as one big wad of cables and sifting through the mess.
What kind of hardware do I need to capture VHS/Hi8 tapes to digital and is it worth getting something with HD capability.
My phone battery suddenly started draining super fast (From 10 hours battery life down to 45 minutes battery life), and the phone gets really hot when it's on, even just on the home screen. Is it just the battery thats fucked?
How the fuck do i remove adware?
Chrome on this computer is now basically adware i thought that restoring its settings would help but it didn't
random ads on clicks
is now full on bloatware
It's on W7 if it matters.

Is Nvidia even trying?
I'm going to be moving to a big city for college and wanted to know where the sketchy areas were located. There used to be an app called Sketchfactor that was Yelp-like and compiled user-submitted sketchy activities. However, it has since been taken down by SJWs so I'm looking for an alternative.
I'm on Android but a website would be the next best thing.

What is the icon with the house in my status bar?
Never seen it before.
I'm at a state park if that helps.
I have a fx 8350 now, is it worth upgrading to the i5 6600?
Is azure the most retarded, convoluted, disorganized, unfocused piece of shit ever?
