Also just joined but to add onto what Ash said, the majority of small account hacks are done by combo lists and crackers, like what he said they gather usernames and passwords from stolen databases of whatever site they get into and try those user:pass on other sites, it works extremely well because most people cba to mix it up a bit from site to site. I used to have a really big list and could get a ton of Spotifys and Netflix's pretty fast

2017-09-27 01:28:45 UTC  

So mix up your usernames or even just passwords from site to site

2017-09-27 01:30:33 UTC  

If you're breached on an account with an original password then you should start worrying, usually means they specifically intended to get into your account for specific reasons, otherwise it's not that big of a deal if you don't have sensitive info on the account, just change your passwords.

My computer failed recently, black screen on startup. The monitor is able to display menus, but nothing from the computer. So far I've replaced the dvi cable, power supply, and motherboard. Should I just scrap the whole thing? Build is about 6-7 years old

@Deleted User are you running a high-end graphics card?

2017-09-27 13:45:48 UTC  

I have two Radeon 6870s in xfire

2017-09-27 13:46:27 UTC  

I had a 650w power supply previously, maybe I succeeded in killing both cards?

2017-09-27 13:47:09 UTC  

The motherboard video didn't work either, though.

2017-09-27 13:52:34 UTC  

Had something similar happen to me. Turned out it was the graphics cards. Maybe the motherboard is shot?

2017-09-27 15:18:55 UTC  

I replaced the motherboard all ready, so it must be the cards somehow

Curious anyone know how to increase internet connection upload and download speed for gaming. My stuff has been very laggy lately at 400-800 kbps

2017-09-27 21:31:14 UTC  

Usually that depends on the service plan you have from your internet provider

2017-09-27 21:32:07 UTC  

If you're using wireless and have an old router or are using a USB stick for your wireless connection, that could be a bottleneck.

2017-09-27 21:32:32 UTC  

Do you know what your ping is?

2017-09-28 06:18:27 UTC  

ranges from 30-40 to 120-400 when it lags bad. I use an ATT modem

2017-09-28 07:02:42 UTC  

@Serg CA hey it also varies based on what server you are playing on

2017-09-28 07:02:54 UTC  

like you are west coast, play on west coast servers to stay sub 30

2017-09-28 07:03:33 UTC  

if you end up on a euro server or east coast even can see it jump to 100

I've posted about this great internet privacy resource before, but they have updated it even better! https://ssd.eff.org/en

@Jimmy the Greek#6623 thanks i'll have to do some more research to find out

2017-09-29 22:11:55 UTC  

Anybody @here know webpack?

2017-09-29 22:21:53 UTC  

Let me know if you need anymore help

2017-09-30 13:55:10 UTC  

Enlighten me on the benefits of using webpack. The "core concepts" page isn't convincing me that it would be "worth it".

2017-09-30 14:53:52 UTC  

Anybody here use dirpy? I am trying to download a song and dirpy will only download the first 30 seconds or so. Not sure if I am doing something wrong or dirpy is defective

2017-09-30 19:38:11 UTC  

@here

2017-10-01 05:13:51 UTC  

@Why Tea same benefit, mostly of things like grunt or gulp afaik.. task automation, minify, test running, compactify, linting, etc.

2017-10-01 10:58:18 UTC  

@Dan iiii Interesting. So is the consensus that it's superior to the existing tools/techniques for minifying, compacting, linting, etc? Or just another way to do it that's popular at the moment? For context I work in concert with our Dev / DevOps team(s) and manage some custom development work / manage those devs. I have *some* influence with our core Dev team but decisions on what to use are from their leads / and department head. If something is better than what they're using now, me suggesting they try it can't hurt. My team and I do app tier stuff much more so than front-end development, but anything to help the team is worth looking at.

2017-10-01 10:59:59 UTC  

For more context my work is in the Security / Authentication & Authorization part of the stack/platform. Even more context, a couple of the biggest companies in the world use security code I and my team wrote and designed.

2017-10-03 17:15:38 UTC  

If anybody knows Webpack and would be willing to help me understand how to work with it, it would be much appreciated.

https://github.com/rrmarsh1994/todoapp I am trying to learn the DOM right now and i am making a simple app that has a list of things to do, a check box to signal completion and a delete button to delete the completed to do, I am able to get the app creating to dos, having a checkbox but not a delete button that shows or functions, on lines 31-38 i have given my best effort at what I think im supposed to do but im not even close, could someone help me work through this? For someone who knows how this stuff it should be a fairly low teir problem, thanks in advance

2017-10-09 18:58:19 UTC

2017-10-11 03:25:19 UTC

2017-10-11 03:54:33 UTC  

@Bobby - Pa The code seems to be working fine for me. I have some suggestions if you want to hear them, but I can successfully create and delete items.

2017-10-11 03:54:45 UTC  

let me know if I'm not understanding the problem you're having

2017-10-11 04:04:29 UTC  

sorry i forgot to update the thread, late last night i was able to understand my mistake, my scope was off on my delete button event

2017-10-11 04:04:46 UTC

2017-10-11 04:04:50 UTC

Who here can tell me how I can load a Pug template without compiling to HTML using Webpack?
