what's the best linux distro to install on an old laptop that i wanna use as a shitty htpc
Not sure if I should put this on /adv/ or not, but I figure I'll get more informed answers here. I want to jump into the IT world and I was thinking that getting a CS degree would be my best way, but I've been seriously considering going down the certification path instead. Specifically for cyber security.
Is it more valuable and worth my time to go for certifications? What certificate path should I be looking at getting? Does it matter where I get the certification from or does it not matter as long as I just have it at all?
IT Security guy/former QSA here. Don't waste your time with that security cert horseshit. If you can get an employer to pay for those pieces of paper do it, otherwise learn the lingo, build up some experience and bullshit your way in. Most of the people in IT Security (outside of Pen testing) are bullshit artists.
I have been in IT Sec for 25+ years. A high school kid can do it.
Do you have any advice as to where and what specifically I should start learning? If I don't need the certifications then that would be awesome, but if I were to go that path should I just wait to see what my employer wants me to get? I'd like to move up into the industry as quick as possible, even if I have to pay for a few certifications to do it.

Why don't we just call Linux "LiGNUx", and have the G be silent?

Alright guys I need help, I have windows 10 and was trying to pirate dark souls 3. Did that shit, got it from pirate bay. While setting down my computer locked down and won't let ms do shit, downloading all kinds of shit by itself (geekbuddy, ssmark, buzzing dhol, others) what do I do?
I have three days to learn how to work in the UNIX environment.

SEND FUCKING HELP!!!!
My first time building my own PC. Everything is lined up as the manual states. I have watched five youtube videos on this.
>3/4 fit fine
>1 isn't lining up correctly
What the fuck, what the fuck am I doing wrong? The safety pin or w/e on the heat sink is lined up with the small locking mechanism. The Legs are lined up as stated in the manual via those golden things on top of the heat sink. It's been two hours and I'm only this far.
Sounds like it's over OP, may as well throw the entire motherboard in the trash. You had one job.
Looking for a hero!
Hey guys. My phone (Samsung Galaxy s6) connects to a corporate network through a temporary weekly "vendor" password. This week I keep getting an error message on my phone that says "AP currently not in use, internet connection slow "
I found a method online (w my data connection) that said to change to a static and enter my phones ip manually. It claims I'm connected after all that but i can't access internet still.
Can anyone please help me figure this out?
Plus I'd rather go back to the DHCP connection method and not get myself into any trouble here if that's possible. I read about a "tell your phone to avoid slow connections" area but my sgs6 doesn't seem to have that option
