Don't get an used Quanta server - I just wanted a cheap Epyc server... | Craft Computing

Lesson learnt: don't ever buy an used server from Quanta

Also, isn't Epyc have an efuse that will pair it with the mobo?

Installing CH340 drivers in Linux Mint running 5.15.0-88 kernel
  • You don't pass in Makefile to make as it will read that file automatically. Nor you need sudo with make as compiling doesn't need any special privileges.

    Step:

    1. make: compile the code to binary
    2. sudo make install: install the binary to your system
  • Can I sell Perchance-generated AI images legally?
  • Have a read on the ToS. If you have the copyright, I don't see any significant issue. However, the selling platform might have restrictions on AI generated content so you need to check that too.

    NOTE: Not a lawyer nor this is a legal advice

  • Privacy on Cars. How to stop data collection and transmission?

    P.S. Not too into the car world so please forgive some misunderstandings I might have.

  • [QUESTION] Privacy and the digital euro
  • I don't even know if you know what you're talking.

    First, cash is going away, soon. Sweden has done it years ago. Europe is now playing catch up.

    Please refer the OP's post in this thread.

    Second, a universal digital currency will remove all system heterogeneity. Yes money is already digitalised, but across several proprietary environments. I can and have set up several accounts across several banks so my spending cannot be fully tracked by a single corporate entity. This will be moot once everyone has to use the same harmonized system.

    That's the privacy problem the OP's saying.

    Third, one of the sponsors of the universal European currency has been caught talking about time limited digital currency. As in, spend your money or it just disintegrates after a set amount of time. Which really destroyed a lot of trust in the endeavour

    How's that related to my post?

  • [QUESTION] Privacy and the digital euro
  • Except neither Bitcoin nor Monero are stable enough as a daily currency. That's a hard truth. I don't want to pay a pizza that's $20 today and $25 tommrow due to value fluctuation.

    As much as I don't like surveillance, I don't like gambling either. Sorry.

    Shall we trust LM defining legal definitions, deepfake in this case? It seems the state rep. is unable to proof read the model output as he is "really struggling with the technical aspects of how to define what a deepfake was."

    Government Response - Petition: Require videogame publishers to keep games they have sold in a working state

    petition.parliament.uk Petition: Require videogame publishers to keep games they have sold in a working state

    Require publishers to leave videogames (and related game assets / features) they have sold to customers in a reasonably working state when support ends, so that no further intervention whatsoever is necessary for the game to function, as a statutory consumer right.

    Petition: Require videogame publishers to keep games they have sold in a working state

    tl;dr: we will do nothing about it

    Full response below

    ---

    The Government recognises recent concerns raised by video games users regarding the long-term operability of purchased products.

    Consumers should be aware that there is no requirement in UK law compelling software companies and providers to support older versions of their operating systems, software or connected products. There may be occasions where companies make commercial decisions based on the high running costs of maintaining older servers for video games that have declining user bases. However, video games sellers must comply with existing consumer law, including the Consumer Rights Act 2015 (CRA) and the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008 (CPRs).

    The CPRs require information to consumers to be clear and correct, and prohibit commercial practices which through false information or misleading omissions cause the average consumer to make a different choice, for example, to purchase goods or services they would not otherwise have purchased. The regulations prohibit commercial practices which omit or hide information which the average consumer needs to make an informed choice, and prohibits traders from providing material information in an unclear, unintelligible, ambiguous or untimely manner. If consumers are led to believe that a game will remain playable indefinitely for certain systems, despite the end of physical support, the CPRs may require that the game remains technically feasible (for example, available offline) to play under those circumstances.

    The CPRs are enforced by Trading Standards and the Competition and Markets Authority. If consumers believe that there has been a breach of these regulations, they should report the matter in the first instance to the Citizens Advice consumer helpline on 0808 223 1133 (www.citizensadvice.org.uk). People living in Scotland should contact Advice Direct Scotland on 0808 164 6000 (www.consumeradvice.scot). Both helplines offer a free service advising consumers on their rights and how best to take their case forward. The helplines will refer complaints to Trading Standards services where appropriate. Consumers can also pursue private redress through the courts where a trader has provided misleading information on a product.

    The CRA gives consumers important rights when they make a contract with a trader for the supply of digital content. This includes requiring digital content to be of satisfactory quality, fit for a particular purpose and as described by the seller. It can be difficult and expensive for businesses to maintain dedicated support for old software, particularly if it needs to interact with modern hardware, apps and websites, but if software is being offered for sale that is not supported by the provider, then this should be made clear.

    If the digital content does not meet these quality rights, the consumer has the right to a repair or replacement of the digital content. If a repair or replacement is not possible, or does not fix the problem, then the consumer will be entitled to some money back or a price reduction which can be up to 100% of the cost of the digital content. These rights apply to intangible digital content like computer software or a PC game, as well as digital content in a tangible form like a physical copy of a video game. The CRA has a time limit of up to six years after a breach of contract during which a consumer can take legal action.

    The standards outlined above apply to digital content where there is a contractual right of the trader or a third party to modify or update the digital content. In practice, this means that a trader or third party can upgrade, fix, enhance and improve the features of digital content so long as it continues to match any description given by the trader and continues to conform with any pre-contract information including main characteristics, functionality and compatibility provided by the trader, unless varied by express agreement.

    Consumers should also be aware that while there is a statutory right for goods (including intangible digital content) to be of a satisfactory quality, that will only be breached if they are not of the standard which a reasonable person would consider to be satisfactory, taking into account circumstances including the price and any description given. For example, a manufacturer’s support for a mobile phone is likely to be withdrawn as they launch new models. It will remain usable but without, for example, security updates, and over time some app developers may decide to withdraw support.

    www.bleepingcomputer.com UK flooded with forged stamps despite using barcodes — to prevent just that

    Royal Mail, the British postal and courier service began switching all snail mail stamps to barcoded stamps last year. The purpose of the barcode was to enhance security, deter stamp reuse, and possibly prevent forgeries—which it has failed to do.

    UK flooded with forged stamps despite using barcodes — to prevent just that

    If a stamp have a barcode, why not just let people who have printers at home to print it on the envelope directly? This eliminates the need to buy physical stamp, thus the probability of buying counterfeit stamps.

    Xbox multiplayer risks your security, if it hasn't banned you already - What console users pay for.

    As a PC player, I never grasp why console players are willing to pay a ransom to access a product and service they already paid for.

    And worst, this video shows M$ double dip dev by taking a 30% cut plus the cost of game service (like logins, verification, lobby, etc) unlike Steam that already have it covered in that cut, and triple dip by asking player to pay more.

    IBM says their latest AI-enhanced storage platform can identify ransomware in under a minute

    Am I too pessimistic about this? Today it can detect ransomware, the next day could be malware, and the day after can be any file.

    It's just a data filter that's build in to a hardware and possibly no way to trun off. Last thing I want is a black box watching what I stored on my drive.
