You mean 2 iPhones crammed in an unmarked mailer didn't just appear in your mailbox? For shame.

Is that really a picture of this person's friend? Because she looks an awful lot like Dina LaPolt.

The thing about fake emails is they could be “fake” to you but they may actually belong to someone else.

I get so many shitty emails, that come from all over the country, and are things I 100% didn’t sign up for. (Talking about you Jenn H in California who orders doordash 3 times a week)

So if you give out fake emails, take the time to create an actual account. This could also serve as a part of your story, like how they spam your emails and such.

That's not saying the PS4 Pro doesn't run games in 4K... it's saying that not all 4K games run at 60fps (although there are several that do run as 4K AND 60fps). The same is true for the One X although more do run at 60fps because it's a little more powerful.

But regarding games running in 4K 30fps on the PS4 Pro, there are a ton now. You can see a pretty updated list here: https://www.digitaltrends.com/gaming/ps4-pro-enhanced-games/

Ultimately, my main issue with your comment is saying that someone with a 4K TV would pick a One X over a PS4 Pro and that's just not the case. I actually have both systems and it depends on the game which system I'll get it for. Most games run identically on both platforms and when that is the case, I get the PS4 version. If you're interested in games like The Last of Us, Horizon Zero Dawn, God of War, Death Stranding, and a ton of other exclusives, you're going to get the PS4 Pro. If you care about Gears of War, Halo, Forza, and other XBox exclusives, you'll get the One X.

It's not true 4K. It's upscaled to 4K not native. There is a difference.

It's not upscaled... Checkerboard rendering is not converting a lower resolution to a higher one. Upscaling and checkerboard rendering are completely different. There are also PS4 Pro games that run at full 4K without checkerboard rendering.

My prices are low because the money is secondary, honestly. I enjoy writing, and the experience of writing for someone other than myself brings an interesting challenge; I can’t just write what amuses me, like inside jokes or absurd scenarios.

I don’t just write gay smut, by the way. I write everything, from comedy to cringeworthy. It behooves me to write from all angles and genres, so I don’t just become a porno writer or comedian.

Could I pay you $5 to write the most cringe-worthy/awkward story you could think of? Something that hurts to read? Like the written equivalent of "Scott's Tots"?

Because I'd do that. I love some good cringe.

Original Poster13 points · 22 days ago

Indeed, you could. PM me.

If you’re looking for intentionally terrible erotica, I have an old piece I could post right here, right now, for free. Or did you want a non-sexual awkward story?

Yeah I wasn't thinking anything sexual. Have you seen Scott's Tots from The Office?

Serious question: She handled that very well and is clearly an intelligent and self-confident person. How do people end up on these trashy shows? Is she an aspiring actor and is this considered a good launchpad for celebrity?

She was actually on the Bachelor. In fact, she "won" only to be told by the guy a week later that he realized he made a mistake and chose the wrong person. That whole ordeal is actually WAY more cringe than this.

Because of the whole deal, they made her the Bachelorette.

I agree with you, most of these type of posts are not choosing beggars. But some are, like when they want you to remove it all in a day.

I think a flair or some way to filter them might work.

Yeah, as with most posts on here, there are times where it does fit. My issue is when people post them just because it's someone trying to get rid of material. I think there is some general ignorance about the value of things like wood and dirt.

Wait, so what's the issue?

Here is an example: http://goedhartvoordieren.nl/?page=r/ChoosingBeggars/comments/8r190a/these_people_who_want_you_to_pay_to_do_their_home/

Basically, someone says "you can have these materials for $X if you come and remove them yourself". It gets posted here as if the person getting rid of the materials is being unreasonable even though it's usually a fair deal.

But even if it WASN'T a fair deal, they still aren't being "choosing beggars".

just don't use it for anything serious LOL, same with Whatsapp. Why in the hell did you not include Threema and Wickr who are right on the level with signal. Wickr is actually superior in it's secure shredding of disappearing msgs. MOxie has said numerous times that they do NOT securely delete them it's YOUR job he says.

Wickr gets knocked with teh open source shit but they have been subpoena'd several times and they were as effective if not better than signal when it came to DOJ and meta data. Waymo v Uber showed it is SUPER secure and does it's job since the Federal appeals court could NOT recover any of Uber's wickr activity at all and it pissed judge Aslop off to no end almost holding Uber in contempt of court. That is definitely good enough for me to use if the highest court in the land besides the Supreme court can't get into the data.

Threema is in my opinion the best except for one small issue of not changing the key for every message sent so an attacked could get your key an decrypt your past information. But that is it's only fallback. Whatsapp is a joke as is telegram, nobody seriously in need of security uses either of those. Just as Paul Manafort :)

see more

Whatsapp uses the Signal protocol... it's just as secure as Signal. You're pushing the use of proprietary systems that don't use encryption that has been peer reviewed...

No you are incorrect it is NOT as secure as signal in any way. They are not open source at all, plus the fact that they make the LIVING on collecting the metadata of the users. Whatsapp gives everything up on the users EXCEPT the content of the message. That is just as bad.

Wickr, you need to catch up some there. Their entire crypto setup has been peer viewed and is open source on github if you'd like to examine it. The only part that is not is their internal app functions. So yeah its' good enought for the PM of Austrailia to use and perform a silent coup, and good enough to stop the highest court in the land from obtaining messages for waymo and uber. It's VERY effective at what it does.

Use it at your own peril. You sound confident so I know I'm not going to be able to change your mind. But I break these things for a living and have seen first hand which ones hold up.

Hey, username is a good idea.

But regarding password, if it's a local account we do not know the password since it's encrypted with PBKDF2 with HMAC-SHA256 (128bit salt, 256bit subject, with 10000 iterations). So it's a very strong one way encryption.

Also if they are a emby or Plex user then we do not know the password.

You can sometimes accomplish a smooth icing look with a damp paper towel to royal icing (I'm just a home baker, but something like this could be done. It'd just be more difficult.) There's also the option of modeling chocolate and gum paste.

It sounds like he is willing to have a roommate. $2400 rent (or $3600 if it's 3 people) doesn't sound too crazy.

I’m all for jailbreaking, even though I don’t do it anymore, but it’s a given fact, Some of the best JB devs said it themselves that jailbreaking may make your device more vulnerable.

It for sure does. My background is in iOS security research. I just gave some info about one of the new security features in iOS12 to Motherboard today.

If you jailbreak your phone, by it's very nature it means you are using a version of iOS that is vulnerable to a full exploit chain to persistent root. Some Jailbreaks attempt to patch the hole exploited but that doesn't patch any of the applications you're now running as root that could be vulnerable (not to mention other jailbreaks...).

The attack surface on a jailbroken phone is just insanely huge. It's not something you should do if you care about security.
