is changing a phenom II x4 955 ( currently at 3,8ghz) for an fx 6300 give me any bust in performance?
i plan to buy better board and 1800 mhz rams
should i also change cpu or should i keep the phenom
I thought the fx 6300 had slightly better ipc?
And it overclocks much higher, some people have been getting over 5ghz with it.
On the other hand, op is gaining 2 integer units at the cost of one fpu.
If I use DuckDuckGo as my search provider in Google Chrome, will my search queries still be sent to Google through the omnibar?
You are using Google Chrome. Why do you care about such trivial things as privacy ?
If you want to be serious about your privacy, stop using Google stuff. If not, changing your default search engine is not gonna help much.
If your search engine uses GET to resolve your queries then those URLs, that contain your queries, will be sent to google. The module responsible is the "malware protection" shit that basically submits all your browsing and files to them
Is there any way to browse 4chan as text only without images loading automatically? Would be nice to browse 4chan at work or in lectures without worrying about random shit popping up in SFW boards like has been happening lately
Bump cause i'm interested too.
I mean, with opera 12 you could change in the setting not to load images at all, so there's that, but it would be nice to have a better solution.

Which microphone does /g/ use and recommend?
I fell for the Blue Yeti meme and am disappointed with it.
>installing windows 10 on a fresh ssd
>Setup goes smothly
>Part way through install the computer reboots as normal
>after reboot it takes me straight back to the setup screen and language selection instead of finishing the install
I've tried changing a few things in the bios like the fast boot options but nothing seems to be helping
I've googled the issue but can't find the solution
I have been thinking about setting up a small underground business. Basically, I want to offer highly anonymous dedicated servers.
I thought this trough, so follow me here.
> people pay 250 usd per month for the server
> people connect to the server over teamviewer
> the server will be located in an outdoor confinement (see picture)
> connected to a very stable public wifi (think macdonalds or public library)
> people connect to it over vpn so its pretty much untracable
> computer also has a 3g dongle in case the wifi disconnects and I need access to fix the server
> computer also hasses a camera on the outside of the confinement to see if people are fucking with it
How much would people pay for this?
What does /g/ think of opera?
Also, browser discussion.

Alex, the guy responsible for updating the Firefox version of uBlock on the addons repository, has betrayed the official development team (https//ublock.org). He has replaced the extension description with an ad for gorshill's hobbyst fork.
PS: daily reminder that if you want a drama-free adblocker that actually BLOCKS MORE than uBlock, check out https://redmorph.com/articles/proof-in-the-packet.html
i can't imagine running code that was developed by any of these autists, if they do this ape shit over nothing imagine what would happen if more money was involved. And that will happen pretty soon.
ABP no drama.
Is it worth getting?
>sold for $60
Is it even worth the hype?
I wish the buttons had engraved markings or something since it's hard to tell where the actual button is when you're not looking directly at them/they're lit up.

What are some computer related careers that don't involve turning yourself into a codemonkey? Currently a first year transfer student at my uni. I've got about two more quarters left before I can apply for a program and I'd like to do Computer Engineering or pretty much any engineering that let's me build physical things rather than work with software 24/7.

you obviously don't know what you're talking about.
it's a feature almost nobody uses - that's why it was only discovered now. on 99.99% of desktop installations, this will not work.
even if you find a system where it works, it doesn't compromise the whole system. not even close.
oh yeah, the attacker also needs physical access to the device in question.
aand it's already patched.
>192 vbr opus sounds exactly like a flac
Is this a meme or does someone have proof that this is true? I did an ABX test and they both sound the same to me. Can anyone with a really really good pair of headphones confirm?
It's not a meme. There are literally 0 confirmed ABX test results proving someone can tell a 192 vbr opus file from a flac. Opus is just that good. Though audible transparency can be reached as low as 128 vbr for most people.
You will never find a reputable test where somebody has been able to determine 320 from FLAC, audiophiles won't even try as it just makes them look dumb after spending thousands.
