    Why is crypto so complicated?

    My God, all I want to do is buy some goddamned Shiba Inu. Can't I throw my $100 down the toilet without getting a PHD first? I created an account on binance. I linked up a transfer method. I put in $100. I bought $100 worth of bitcoin, which immediately started losing value (lol), of course...

    Convert chromebook to linux rig? (if you hate angry avoid me)

    It's nice when a journey of a thousand steps fails on step #1; gets it over with quickly and painlessly. It's when step #999 is the point of failure that I get mad. I'm leaning toward the suggestion of just buying a used laptop and installing linux. But then on second thought that's based on a...

    Convert chromebook to linux rig? (if you hate angry avoid me)

    I can handle research, too. The first time I looked at doing this it seemed pretty daunting, but maybe I was just being a wuss, or maybe I'm just more motivated now. I'm definitely willing to open the case, and to do more than a few clicks - thanks for the reply.

    Convert chromebook to linux rig? (if you hate angry avoid me)

    I probably have one laying around. If not, I should, so I can definitely do that. Thanks. And I may hit you up for that help. But I can usually handle semi-complicated. Edit: is a micro SD card good enough? I just bought a 256gb SanDisk. But I guess maybe not, if the idea is to boot from USB...

    Convert chromebook to linux rig? (if you hate angry avoid me)

    It was a gift. But from what I gather, it's a total crapshoot if you can linux a chromebook; some it's easy, others hard, etc. As for why a chromebook, well, they are pretty cheap, relatively speaking.

    Convert chromebook to linux rig? (if you hate angry avoid me)

    i own an acer chromebook 15 cb3-532. I am beyond fed up with stasi/google's bullshit. I don't like the dependency this thing has on the play store. i don't like how inherently insecure it (the play store) is. i don't like google. i don't like sergei brin. i don't like larry page. i don't like...

    Music. on a pc. then to a phone.

    Okay, so I tried just copy-pasting mp3s from my PC to my phone plugged in via USB, then used AIMP to create a playlist from the folder and played it over my speaker. It was relatively painless. I still don't see what's so friggin' hard about a player that will let me transfer my hard work and...

    Music. on a pc. then to a phone.

    spotify: login to your account *fills in username and password, hits enter* spotify: that username or password are incorrect. *clicks "resend password" link, fills in email, hits enter* spotify: "that email is not associated with any account *(knows that's goddamned horseshit because he...

    Need remote access that hosts on W10, clients on Chromebook (or linux (beta)), and lets me remote in to sign-in page on W10.

    Yeah I think I got it working okay, but didn't check to see if it will let me remote in when host is at login screen.

    Need remote access that hosts on W10, clients on Chromebook (or linux (beta)), and lets me remote in to sign-in page on W10.

    Whelp, no sooner had I posted this and tried to install TV again and the third time was the charm because I got it working now, sign out sign back in and all. Hopefully all the settings will stick and it'll just work from here on out, because I won't have much ability to troubleshoot as I'll be...

    Need remote access that hosts on W10, clients on Chromebook (or linux (beta)), and lets me remote in to sign-in page on W10.

    I used TeamViewer for years and really liked it, not least because of how well it did unattended access, right down to letting me log in to my W7 PC from the password prompt, restart or sign out without getting dropped and then sign in past the password prompt, etc. Unfortunately, I can't get it...

    2-pane File Explorer replacement that doesn't sacrifice functionality

    I mean that generally, but the specific feature I was testing for was the address bar. You know, This PC> System (C:)>your>directory>here>blablabla. It's actually kind of hot shit in File Explorer. At least, compared to every...single...supposed...Explorer...replacement...I...tried. I tried like...

    W10 disappearing start menu icons

    I uninstalled Brave. Too many problems, plus sync is kaput now, has been for a while. Ever tried getting bookmarks out of Brave mobile? Uninstalled in disgust after that.

    W10 disappearing start menu icons

    All free versions; Avast Free, Malwarebytes Free, Superantispyware Free. I deleted the .bat I used, but I happened to still have the tab I DLed it from open in Chrome: https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/5645-rebuild-icon-cache-windows-10-a.html :D

    W10 disappearing start menu icons

    Again, this is weird. At this point my plan is to back up my system once my malware and virus software is done scanning/removing, and I've finished a bit of cleanup; then, reinstall w10 from disc. And wait 50 years as the fresh install slogs through all the updates. I guess I could burn a fresh...
