My old Brother laser printer isn't printing well and replacing the drum isn't exactly worth it.
Had about 5000 pages through it.
Brother is the easiest to find supplies for, it seems, but they also do page-counting (I don't like... I prefer to run until toner is actually out)
Do any of you get a SSL warning on this site? gasnaturalfenosa.com.br
@ThatBrazilianGuy ssllabs.com/ssltest/…
@ThatBrazilianGuy No issues opening the page on Firefox 40 under Windows 10.
"or more precisely 10 overlapping heads – which run the full width of the paper, so the head doesn’t have to scan from side to side, and only the paper moves. " totally cool , but unless i know how many gallons of ink it takes to clean the thing with full page heads. i would have to have my print head examined before i would touch it.
6:01 PM
@Psycogeek It's designed to compensate automatically for clogged heads. hp.com/hpinfo/newsroom/press_kits/2012/FallBizPrinting/…, pages 9-10.
I still have an old HP inkjet/multifunction.
But I don't like inkjet.
@Bob Done that and it seems to pass, but I get "issuer unknown"
They don't work well for occasional users, for one.
@ThatBrazilianGuy What network are you on?
@ThatBrazilianGuy Click "View".
@ThatBrazilianGuy It doesn't pass.
Read the full results.
> Chain issues Incomplete
"VeriSign". Hm, never heard of them. Must be some shady guys. :P
The site isn't sending the intermediate certificate.
"it seems to pass" he says
Does that look like a pass to you?!
6:04 PM
@ThatBrazilianGuy VeriSign is supposed to be the best CA. Expensive, though.
I'd hate to see your definition of failing!
@Bob It's vulnerable to POODLE, capping the grade at C.
It also fails to support TLS 1.2.
@DragonLord I would actually consider the incomplete chain the most critical issue. And that happens to be the significant one in this case.
But that's a rather long laundry list of issues.
@Bob Well, in high school when I got a "C" on an exam, I passed. Not with flying colors, but did. :P
Problem is, I have to enter personal data here >_<"
(...including possibly bank account info)
@DragonLord if i believed press releaces, then i would first want my 100X capacity li-ion battery, flexable displays, e-paper with 60FPS in color and a win10 that worked right :-)
6:06 PM
@ThatBrazilianGuy You can email them. Or publicly call them out on the shitty results (Twitter? etc).
and perpetual motion machines of about 3 types.
Apart from that, if you want it to "work", you'll have to visit some other site with the same intermediate to cache it.
Or just manually add it.
@Psycogeek Because it can detect bad nozzles, it should be able to clean itself in an intelligent and economical fashion.
@DragonLord ha. that's what they'll claim
meanwhile... *flushes all heads*
The printer does this in the background.
6:09 PM
@DragonLord I wonder why do they (biggest methane providers of the region) can afford a verisign certificate but not paying their IT to set it properly...
If you tell it to clean itself, it probably will flush all heads to clear out clogs it may not have detected.
...and guess what? The waste ink tank is part of the replaceable autoduplexer unit.
@DragonLord and people indicated that it had to stop to do maintance cycles often???
You can import that certificate into your browser, if you want.
Don't explicitly trust it with anything. Just import it.
Browser should cache it.
@Psycogeek From how I understand it, the printer is supposed to be self-maintaining to the extent possible.
It does things like mapping bad nozzles when idle.
6:18 PM
stuff like that be good for an office, which would still probably prefer a toner printing.
good for an office, where the printing is way more often, so it just doesnt dry out as much.
A: Xbox One - Access Windows Remote Desktop Connection

Ben RichardsThis can be done between Windows 10 and an Xbox One console with more recent updates. Note that this is currently, as of my post, in Beta. It also will require a decent network connection between the PC and the console (preferably an Ethernet connection though I've done it before over WiFi as we...

Decent answer? I threw it up quickly from memory. Didn't have the ability to do a good source check, but I've done it before at home, so I was at least familiar enough with the process.
It isn't quite the same as it's not a Remote Desktop Connection but the end result is similar enough.

6:30 PM
@ThatBrazilianGuy of course how would a keylogger work if you dont type :-)
@Psycogeek By detecting audio signals, of course! wired.com/2014/11/airhopper-hack
7:02 PM
Seems... kinda pointless
Even a small Li-ion battery pack would be more effective
The idea is to scavenge random AA batteries... where on earth? They aren't exactly lying around.
@Bob true
Can someone get rid of this? superuser.com/questions/892371/…
@Bob Well sure, I saw a couple of old rusty AA batteries lying on the ground in a car park I was in this morning... they probably could have given me a whole 0.01% battery life.
@Bob where is the wire? it would be hard enough to kludge 2 batts together on magnet connections, and keep it connected enough to charge continually, but with it also stuck precariously in the phone , you would have to have it proped all up properly.
> AA batteries are the most universally recognised and widely sold type of battery. While it doesn’t make sense to rely on AA batteries for daily phone charging, they do come in handy if you’re in an everyday emergency and need that crucial bit of juice.
@Bob They are sold in stores.
7:19 PM
@ThatBrazilianGuy or if you find yourself in a weather or fallout shelter and it has a whole cabinet full of AA batteries but no phone charger or mains power
we dont need no stinking feasibility study
@ThatBrazilianGuy Sure. Let me go and buy some batteries to awkwardly charge my phone.
It also plugs straight into the phone (and therefore sticks out the end), which means you aren't gonna be putting the assembly into your pocket while it's in use.
Funnily enough, I came across it while looking for something to do with my stash of AA batteries.
But I don't carry them around with me, which makes this particular idea pretty useless.
If you did slap any 4 together in series, and they will charge your phone without a curcuit , much more efficient, and probably at high rates. these kinds of things were made 5 years ago. and a place to store the batteries too
I have one that is similar to this amazon.com/Gomadic-Advanced-Paperwhite-compatible-Battery/dp/… I never got around to changing the mini USB i put on it, and it wouldnt charge a 9amp phone battery anyways :-)
Hello all
I have a question in regards to booting Kali Linux from USB in Windows 10. I have the .iso on a USB but when I turn on my PC it doesn't give me the option to boot from hard drive or boot from USB
7:37 PM
@WilliamHodges "iso on a USB" -- did you just copy it onto the filesystem? That's definitely not going to get it done. You need to actually overwrite the filesystem of the USB disk with the contents of the ISO, but that won't work directly because CDFS isn't bootable on USB, so you need to convert it using one of a myriad of commonly available free programs.
having an ISO on the USB drive's filesystem is like telling someone to eat some corn that's in a bowl inside a bowl and wrapped in plastic... they can't get to it
Q: How do I place a bootable ISO on a USB drive?

Justin WhiteWhat's the best way of placing a bootable ISO on a USB drive? ISOs such as a live Linux preview disk, Windows installation ISO, etc.

7:59 PM
If you can't boot kali... you shouldn't be using it :(
Less negatively though, rufus is what I'd use from there
8:13 PM
@Bob Actually, I could see a utility for that. Useful for emergency situations where nothing else is available.

Another TDR forcing a reboot.

HM170 supports overclocking!
Used with Intel Core i7-6820HK for overclockable laptops.
Yes, there's an overclockable laptop processor!
@allquixotic Nice!
9:57 PM
!! s/overclockable/battery-draining in 15 minutes/
@allquixotic Yes, there's an battery-draining in 15 minutes laptop processor! (source)
10:14 PM
@allquixotic Doubt it. A laptop CPU should not be able to pull 200+ watts.
I suspect up to 100 watts under extreme conditions with appropriate cooling (yes, this can be done on air with a well-designed HSF unit), but that won't drain a laptop battery in 15 minutes.
Polio diet, really, my hurts from the massive forehead slap i gave myself

Q: Even given that some information is unwanted, is it appropriate to use spam mechanisms when a post needs to be more focused?

Jonathan HaywardOn “Is there any way to squeeze more performance out of a vintage Itronix GD8000 laptop PC?” (previously titled, “What, for a Paleo computer, can be done to get performance out of an Itronix GD8000?”), I received a singularly blunt comment of: @JonathanHayward - I spent more then 30 seconds r...

I hope Ramhound does not need to be suspended again :/
11:03 PM
No; I don't need to be; Just a fork to gauge my eyes out when I read question about Paleo diet again.
11:19 PM
@DragonLord its not really your place to be discussing whether or not users need to be suspended, especially when all they've done wrong is accidentally flagged something as spam and then stated as such. The question in its original incarnation read like spam to begin with so the mistake is honest and has been apologised for.
@Mokubai I didn't say he should be suspended. I was just concerned.
The decision to suspend is solely that of the moderators.
I honestly hoped that suspension would not be necessary.
Then raise your concerns to moderators, do not go airing dirty laundry over the site.
to be fair, I actually was annoyed, when I thought potential spammer went to the effort of earning reputation.
hence that does come out in my comment.
@Mokubai: so what are the biggest issues I need to fix on my end regarding my conduct on this site?
Should I be suspended?
No. What is it that you want to be suspended for?
11:25 PM
I think I might be acting without or beyond my authority at times, as if I were a mod when I'm not.
Is this still an issue?
do people really pay $4000 for a new Itronix computer of that quality and age?
I'm just saying that we are a community and a community should be constructive in their support of each other and suggest ways we can all improve rather than pointing out someone's past misdemenors.
It was $4000; in 2009; explains its performance :$
@Mokubai Well, Ramhound has for some reason always gotten on my nerves despite acting much more civilly in recent months.
It could just be a subconscious association between the name "Ramhound" and a troublemaker (even though this is not the case).
@Ramhound, sorry for the negative comments that I posted to you on the question. I wanted to warn you but I think I might have gone a bit too far.
@DragonLord - NP
11:35 PM
It's just weird the way I sometimes act.
You do sometimes overthink stuff. Stop letting your brain get in the way ;-)
@DragonLord everyone has those moments so its no big deal in the grand scheme of things, just let yourself live and remember the first golden rule: "have fun"
@Ramhound he said he paid less than $1k for it
A: Is there any way to squeeze more performance out of a vintage Itronix GD8000 laptop PC?

allquixoticIt's your graphics processor. I know that sounds like a bold claim, but to me it's completely obvious, having dealt with similar problems on similarly ancient systems before. Allow me to elaborate. Some fundamental problems come to mind: Your processor is a Core 2 Duo. This means the following...

He also said it costs $4000 new, but failed to mention, that was in 2009.
Yes; He bought a 2009 machine for less then a $1000.
In the words of Slartibartfast "I'd rather be happy than right any day..."
@DragonLord Apologies for being a bit harsh though.
11:46 PM
It's really bad memories of a past incident that led me to do this. Sorry, everyone.
11:58 PM
I have just been restarted! This happens daily automatically, or when my owner restarts me. Ready for commands.
