Quality of the video isn't neat and clear but I was able to download the video then grab a screencap of him doing the thumbs up.

Looking at this screencap and the Jack Maxey pics, doesn't really look the same unless he grew his hair out and styled it differently.

If you're using wget for that, then use robots=off to prevent that from happening.

Anyone notice a large chunk of saved posts are gone from your saved folders here on GAW? I have one folder with over 2,200+ posts saved and now it's down to 1,900 something.

My initial thought was that one user had their account deleted, taking the posts along with the account into the void.

I think it's just your typical movie theater pop with straw through the top lid for aesthetic purposes. Don't think it's code/comms.

"American Dad" did an episode on trans fat. It was "Live and Let Fry" episode where Stan Smith, a CIA agent, finds out his office is pulling trans fat out and all of a sudden there's a trans fat ban in his hometown. So Stan got desperate and start smuggling trans fat into his hometown and his boss is on to him as the boss starts asking questions about trans fat.

Stan then have his son, Steve, smuggle trans fat but Stan's boss is also on to Steve so Steve pedals home on his bike while consuming trans fat out of the container and experience a heart attack like symptom (angina).

Basically it's just an episode that's supposed to be funny and all, but also teaches a lesson that trans fat is still bad, which is why it should stay banned.

I used to like American Dad as well as Family Guy but after 2016, it got cucked so bad, I stopped watching them all (American Dad is off air now but Family Guy is still running I believe).

So apparently this is satire according to this Facebook page.

Not only that but it was posted back in 2019.

Don't know how this will look on mobile, but on desktop, you will find "Portsmouth Ohio Official" title on the right side with "Satire page" right under the title.

Clotty is so bad, even his hands are backwards.

Last night, I was with my wife and a couple of friends. They shared with us that one of our friends' co-worker recently passed away "suddenly" of a heart attack. He was in his early 50's. First thing that came into my mind was that he took the vax. Same goes for my wife.

We would have asked if he was vaxxed but we didn't because our friends, while they're sweet and caring, are not exactly the brightest bulbs in the box. Think of it like this:

"So let's say if you didn't have breakfast yesterday, how would you feel?"

"But I did have breakfast yesterday...?"

"Yes but let's pretend you didn't have breakfast yesterday, how would you feel all day?"

"But I don't understand, I did have breakfast yesterday and I felt fine!"

and on and on and they'd never understand what they're supposed to say. So to explain something like the correlation between the vax and the sudden death would fall on deaf ears, or rather blind eyes as our friends are also deaf.

So we left it alone and just said we're sorry to hear that.

Additionally, I found out that someone was found dead in the river and I was a bit shocked to hear that because in this town, it's like Mayberry with drugs and moderate crime. I believe this is a first for this town to have someone found floating in the river...

Also no one knows who this person is so we don't know if this person is a local or from out of town... How he ended up in the river is a mystery but who knows if they had the vax, seized up and fell into the river, or the mafia got to him?

Creepy and scary to think that this "died suddenly" thing is becoming more local now. A few months ago, a good friend of my friends, suddenly died in the bathroom and she was supposedly healthy. More and more of my friends' relatives are dropping dead from "unknown causes" as well as "short battle with cancer".

Yeah I'm in I.T. so I'm familiar with how DHCP distribute IP addresses and setting static IPs.

The thing is, when I set up the static IP for my PiHole, the LAN IP changed to a number up above the former one, i.e. 192.168.0.1 got changed to 192.168.0.2. I didn't change that, the router changed it by itself.

I followed this guy's explanation on how to set PiHole but I know he's using a Ubiquity router so I managed to get all what I needed to set up per his instructions but at the end, the PiHole is listening and scanning but because my router and the Pi-Hole are on two different networks (192.168.0.1 for PiHole and 192.168.0.2 for my router) so nothing is coming through the PiHole and I lost internet connectivity on my router.

Had to reset router because I couldn't even get into the router's interface (don't know what it got changed to because I can see it by its IP address but whenever I try to get in the web interface via its IP address, it keeps giving me an error). Did some changing and all, but it took up pretty much all night for me and my child had to be in school (remote learning) and I had to have the router back in working order so my child can attend class via zoom.

Since then, I've been busy but yeah I'll try to look around and read some more on PiHole to see what I did wrong.

I'll look at eBay again. Last time I went hunting on eBay was when I was trying to find a working Cisco 2950 router so I can set up a home lab but there weren't any at the time or they were selling at a crazy price, like $1,000 for one when I saw it going for around $50 but got quickly sold.

Thanks for the info!

Yeah I just like to have some stuff now rather than waiting later but when I upgraded to 35, I saw what a lot of people were complaining about instability. Decided to finally upgrade to 37 and it's now mostly stable.

Haven't really used Debian but I've used Ubuntu so I got a good idea of how Debian can do and I'm sure it's lots better than Ubuntu. But I like Red Hat/Fedora because I used it first when I was in college, majoring in I.T. and loved it since.

True, that's a good point. Didn't factor that one in. Totally forgot all about my friend who used this program to remove a lot of stupid junk from Windows so they can just "vanilla" install Windows on our test bench.

Yeah you're good. I believe Kali is a fork of Tails but with pentesting capabilities like Metasploit, Splunk and many more.

Tails comes with the TOR browser (TOR = The Onion Router) and have a lot of tips telling you how to remain anonymous i.e. do not maximize your browser, do not copy and paste, do not transfer files between Tails and your personal computer, etc. All of that can trail back to your real identity, even if it's very minimal. Tails is also lightweight.

Well my mother in law has Windows 10 installed on her laptop and I had to apply an hotfix. Took about 6 hours for it to go through. Her laptop is HP and it's using OEM OS.

I had Windows 7 installed on my computer and it was the last Windows OS I used before switching over to Linux fully. I had like three or four updates to apply. Took literally all night to have them go through. That was the final straw for me so I switched over to Linux and haven't looked back. I was even using a SSD for it with 16 GB of RAM. At that time, my PC was an enthusiast PC that I built myself, and it was LAGGING with Windows.

Not only that but I had to service computers for about 5 years and I had to apply hotfixes, updates and all that. Half of the time, I had to leave them sitting on the workbench overnight for the updates to go through. Oftentimes I would think the computer had some more issues than just software but it was actually Microsoft that made the OS worse version after version. Not even going to use Windows 11.

Convinced my father to get off Windows and use a chromebook with Android stack on it and he's happier with it than he was with Windows. He kept saying, "I swear I'll sling this laptop into the sky and shoot that piece of shit!" when referring to his Windows laptop.

Haven't used any of the Linux distros other than Ubuntu that people have suggested on here but I've used Mint like 8 or so years ago.

Right now I'm on Fedora and it's good so far. Yeah sometimes unstable but that's what I get for using an OS that's constantly updating all the time. Fedora 37 seems to have fixed most of the issues I was having in Fedora 35 and I'm a late adopter -- I don't always upgrade to the latest version, but for this one I had to because I was actually having stability issues with 35.

I have yet to install PiHole because my router keeps changing the IP addresses every time I set PiHole up so maybe I'm doing it wrong but then again, I'm using a shitty router, despite it being "top of the line" back then. It's not even compatible with OpenWRT... :(

Antivirus is one of the many reasons why I switched over to Linux because it's bloatware and slows your computer down due to it constantly scanning for everything you do online as well as offline.

Yeah Ubiquity looks nice and all but very expensive. I was also looking into using pfSense but I don't have what this video recommended getting.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lUzSsX4T4WQ

It looks like I may have to drop ~$800 to get everything what I need to use pfSense to manage my network...?

As for VPNs, I still haven't found one as I'm not sure which one is the best one out there and reasonable priced as well. Not sure about ExpressVPN, MullVad, BearShare or something like that. Just saw some people recommend SurfShark (At first I thought they were talking about WireShark lol). Anyways, I'd like to use a VPN service sometimes soon but it's hard to decide on which one, like you said, as they all have trade-offs.

For me, I avoid all password managers. Don't 100% trust them completely and I have complicated passwords anyways.

Anyways good info here. Thanks for sharing!

Or just install Windows in a virtual machine and use it for 180 days (that's the limit you can use until Windows starts complaining that you need to activate it) then delete and install.

No need to install a bootleg version.

Or just don't activate. Yes you won't be able to use some of the services and drivers but if you are just doing some simple stuff then I doubt drivers/services may be needed for whatever you're doing.

I've noticed that most people usually don't allow Windows to finish setting up. They would just start using Windows as soon as Windows boots up, interrupting the setup process.

That's one of the common issues that was brought into the shop I worked at and I had to do a system recovery or a clean install of Windows then just let it do its work until I see the "New Account" screen.

But the main reason why I stopped using WIndows about 10 years ago is because I got tired of waiting half a day for Windows to finish installing a single update.

By looking at the name, I thought it was Cliff Lee. Regardless, RIP Lee Tinsley...
