2018-10-04: Search server active for recent posts, rebuilding for older posts. RebeccaBlackTech restored after host's storage had a 2nd SAN hiccup on 9/24. No damage, but we need to import posts from the a contingency scraper. Many thanks to our new tetrarchy of sysadmins who worked to fix this complex service after the loss of the original admin. More info later. Donations would still help in case of image storage failure and we still need a new scraper.
The server is stable, but the scraper is at its final limits due to crippling resource use and cloudflare limits, so /gif/ and /wsg/ images are paused. Let's solve this: help build a new scraper. More details here.

Windows 10 troubles

No.68603232 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
THIS IS WHY Windows 10 update won't install on some machines.

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4464619/windows-10-update-history

If you have certain new Intel drivers, you cannot update Windows 10 anymore. You would have to delete Windows 10 and start from all over with the newest install dvd image when it is released.

Intel drivers also stop HDMI sound from working and external displays wont work for laptops (Intel GPU issue).

The German ministry of IT-security published a report on telemetry in Windows 10 and how effective various methods are to disable it.

https://www.bsi.bund.de/SharedDocs/Downloads/DE/BSI/Cyber-Sicherheit/SiSyPHus/Analyse_Telemetriekomponente.pdf

I don't use windows 10, but I figured someone here might find it interesting. I'll translate a short summary in the next post.

The design problem of Windows 10

No.68604574 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
Do you know why you like to shit so much on Microsoft's face for the design "inconsistency" of Windows 10? It's because you still haven't learned a very important lesson both in technology and in life: don't buy unfinished products
That's right folks, Windows 10 is NOT a finished product and you should NOT have upgraded. If you do anything except manchild-tier gaming then you will be extra-fine with Windows 7 witch IS in fact a finished and polished product. I don't give a shit about what Microsoft told you about Windows 10, it's your faults if you fell for it.
Bu you can still recoup the damage you have done, "downgrade" to Windows 7 and just wait for Windows 10 to exit its clear beta stage
