FrootVPN has worked well for my torrenting needs. They're pretty cheap.

2018-04-22 04:59:09 UTC  

You can pay in bitcoin.

I went with NordVPN mainly because Virtual Shield offered "premium content" packages for extra money per month, which made me think that the basic package might not be that good

2018-04-23 01:05:04 UTC  

Plus NordVPN sounds cooler.

2018-04-23 01:05:20 UTC  

That's the real reason, right?

2018-04-23 01:15:26 UTC  

@Rogue I've always suspected that was the REAL reason

2018-04-23 07:52:16 UTC  

I mean, Skyrim does belong to the Nords.

i have an android phone with a busted screen, making it unusable. i'd like to pull some photos off of it, but i don't know how. plugging into a computer won't do anything because there's a prompt on the phone asking for permission to connect, which I can't press. what are my options?

2018-04-28 19:26:52 UTC  

sim card?

2018-04-28 19:27:24 UTC  

not sim card. the other thing that androids often use.

2018-04-28 21:51:52 UTC  

All the files are stored on the phones internal memory

2018-04-30 05:55:36 UTC  

@TV Save the phone until you can find a broken one to borrow the screen from, it's a thin ribbon cable, may take forever, but may be transplantable 🤷🏼‍♂️

2018-04-30 05:56:18 UTC  

Possible @TV that a phone repair place would have a donor screen solely for data transfer.

2018-04-30 05:56:42 UTC  

That's a good idea

2018-04-30 05:56:58 UTC  

Its a few years old I could probably find one cheap

2018-04-30 05:57:38 UTC  

What model?

2018-04-30 05:57:48 UTC  
2018-04-30 06:00:06 UTC  

Alternative possibility:

2018-04-30 06:01:06 UTC  

$4 @TV

2018-04-30 06:10:45 UTC  

I can't use the screen at all.

2018-04-30 06:11:13 UTC  

Bummer, maybe attach it to a Wacom tablet or something?

2018-04-30 06:11:26 UTC  


2018-04-30 06:11:37 UTC  

That's what I'm working with

2018-04-30 06:11:39 UTC  

You need an external screen for sure

2018-04-30 06:13:09 UTC  

Looking into replacing the screen was a good idea

2018-04-30 06:13:54 UTC  

Best wishes. Going to bed. Early day tomorrow. Later dude.

I've got a camera tech question for anyone who's familiar with canon. I'm having a problem with my canon T6i where the ISO will start spazzing out while taking video. I stand in front of a bright softbox light, the camera is set to manual, ISO at 200, aperture at 3.5 (lowest) and on occasion if I move or hold something that is reflective on the light, the ISO will freak out and crank up to 3200. The LCD touch screen looks as if someone is pressing the buttons to raise the ISO but again everything is set to manual on the camera so idk why it would be reacting this way? It's a strange glitch. Does anyone have any suggestions?

2018-05-06 21:53:02 UTC  

Take it off auto

2018-05-06 21:53:35 UTC  

Are you in P mode?

2018-05-06 21:53:41 UTC  

It's already on manual, as stated above

2018-05-06 21:53:47 UTC  

What's P mode?

2018-05-06 21:54:08 UTC  

I have the dial turned to M for manual, and then switch the camera into video mode.

2018-05-06 21:54:28 UTC  

Autofocus is also off so everything is adjusted manually

2018-05-06 21:54:58 UTC  


2018-05-06 21:55:36 UTC  

Yeah very. I'm not sure what to do other than replace the camera

2018-05-06 21:56:39 UTC  

I think that's just the light meter.

2018-05-06 21:56:48 UTC  

Don't have my DSLR on hand.

2018-05-06 21:57:24 UTC  

Anyone else @here have a suggestion?
