  1. Depends on your machine. If you have a laptop with hybrid graphics then using Linux will be a pain in the ass.. I used Linux on my main Laptop - with hybrid graphics - for 2 years and ended up going back to windows, because after almost every update something was messed up with the GPU (Especially Xorg...), if you have a Laptop (or PC) with a integrated Graphics card only, then it is totally fine to mess around with Linux I'd say. But also keep in mind: If you have some special programs (Photoshop is a good example) it wont run as good as on windows - Gimp is no equivalent though. Sure you could run it in a virtual machine, but when you end up using a virtual machine with windows installed more than your actual operating system, you could stay on windows and use your tools with the native performance. BUT: If you are interested in learning and troubleshooting linux it is definitely a good way to just install it right away (before you created a backup of your important files!) and just play around with it.

    Some of you may have noticed that we have a little issue with spammers lately. I am trying to minimize this issue and I need your help with this. So far I added these to the current list: You can help me by reporting the thread itself or by open a support ticket with the link which is in the thread (preferable), so I can add the link to the prevention list. I've added a "Spammer" department to the support ticket list:
  3. Hi all, had something in my mind for overcoming the addiction and wrote a little script, which is for windows only currently but can be ported to Linux aswell - If you want/need it for Linux aswell, let me know. What this script can do? Blocking access to gaming related websites by adding them into the hosts file. What this script can't do (yet)? Blocking gaming software. It is planned to block clients such as steam, uplay, battle.net, but currently it only blocks the access to websites. How to execute? Make a text file on your desktop (or wherever you want) and paste the content/script into it. Change the extension from .txt to .bat Follow this link if you dont have file extensions enabled Right click -> Execute as admin This script also blocks access to twitch.tv. If you still want to access twitch.tv, remove these lines: ( echo. echo 127.0.0.1 twitch.tv echo 127.0.0.1 www.twitch.tv ) >> "%Hosts%" And here is the script. Let me know if you think such scripts are useful so I can work on it and improve it and also let me know if you need such script for Linux.

    Added a few emojis: Open Emoji menu, choose category.
  5. If Riot Games don't wanna delete/disable that account, try something like this: Open notepad with an empty file, faceroll over your keyboard, close your eyes, press CTRL + A (to select everything), CTRL + C (to copy into clipboard),press ALT + SPACE + N (to minimize the window), open your eyes, Download Tor Browser, go to Riot website with Tor, request new password, copy confirmation link, open in Tor, paste the facerolling stuff from notepad. Could also try to blindly change your email the same way. Riot wants your IP later if you try to get your account back via their support, even though you might have a dynamic IP from your Internet provider, its still harder when they see weird IP's (from Tor), so it either takes longer or they even might deny to give it back at all. But, they should be able to delete it, because: https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/articles/202647784-Account-Deletion-FAQ
  6. The Web Application Hacker's Handbook: Finding and Exploiting Security Flaws 2nd Edition
  7. 1) Since iOS is pretty restricted about saving own documents and read them (especially pdf files, which I assume the Respawn guide is?) you can do it this way: - Upload the guide to dropbox - Get a ebook reader app with the ability to import books from dropbox (or any other cloud such as onedrive) - Import the guide into the app (Small tip, if you are into it: Some speed reader apps also allow importing from cloud drives) 2) Haven't found anything for chrome but this and this guide shows it for safari. There is a app called 1Blocker in the app store which can block websites, but I am not sure if it blocks them system wide for all browser - might worth a try.
  8. Hi everyone, I was thinking about this now for a while and I guess it is time to just do it. I am offering my skills and knowledge to help you guys. What does that mean? - I can help you with securing your website/server (unless it is a hosted solution such as squarespace, you would need to trust them). - I can help you with choosing the right solution for you (Managed hosting? Virtual Private Server (VPS)? Dedicated Server?). - I can give you tips for making your "surfing the web" more secure. - Infected PC? Sure thing, hit me up. I can do malware/network analysis and can clean (most of) the malware/trojans/adware/whatever. - Feeling unsafe at all while using your PC? I can do a security-check up. This is a free service. No costs are involved (but donations are appreciated) and also keep in mind: - German timezone (CET) - Sometimes I might be super busy and can't answer instant (Still have a own business to manage beside my half-time job) Contact me via: - Discord: steddecx#4706 (Stablish at GQ Discord) - At the forum via PM - E-Mail: stablish@protonmail.com
  9. Ah I see. So if we have a Web Developer it could be something easy such as: Username: JohnDoe Start date of detox: xx/xx/xxxx And the website keeps counting (day 1, day 2, day 3, and so on) and generates a unique link for that user, the user then can copy and paste it into their signature. Yeah, that could work, because my idea which I have in my mind would fit with that. So, we need a web developer who can code such thing
  10. Unfortunately it would be static in the signature I think. Adding a graphic would work, but then you would need to update the graphic daily and therefore the graphic link itself - which can be pretty annoying and some people dont might be online every day. I know reddit has this kind of tracker but they are using a different underlying software and since I am not a pro-programmer I dont know how to do it with this forum software. It MIGHT be possible via the API but then we would need someone who knows the forum software and programming. As @Cam Adair said, we are already trying to find a way to add this kind of tracking, but still haven't found a reliable solution yet I have something in my mind which I am going to test soon on the backup forum, will show it to cam and then we decide if its yay or nay.

    Additional Forum Security: I have enabled 2FA (Two Factor Authentication) and Security Questions. It is set to optional so you can choose to either use it or not. How to enable: - On the top right corner click on your profile and then on Account Settings - On the left side click on Account Security - Enter your password and click on Continue - Now you can choose between Google Authenticator or Security Questions The timeout is set to 30 minutes. The additional security is currently set for the following: I recommend using Authy for 2FA since it is available on iOS, Android, Windows and macOS. Get started with Authy: https://www.howtogeek.com/199262/authy-two-factor-authentication-made-easy/ If you still need help, either ask here or you can contact me via PM.
  12. Done.

    Upgraded kernels for both forum and blog to fix the current CPU vulnerability (CVE-2017-5715, CVE-2017-5753, CVE-2017-5754 aka Spectre and Meltdown) https://nvd.nist.gov/vuln/detail/CVE-2017-5715 https://nvd.nist.gov/vuln/detail/CVE-2017-5753 https://nvd.nist.gov/vuln/detail/CVE-2017-5754
  15. Sounds good to me. But I still would create a whole new category for that. And posting/reading in that category is only available for members with X amount of posts or X amount of registered days. Not sure if its possible like that, but if you agree with that I would find a way to accomplish that.
