For those very new to this area, please google SIM SWAP and discover a very nasty security issue with all phones we use today. At first glance the new security researcher might think I'm exaggerating. Do your own research and tell me you don't find this to be one of the most foul, nasty exploits I've seen in years. This exploit was recently used to highjack a writer's phone at https://www.zdnet.com/article/sim-swap-horror-story-ive-lost-decades-of-data-and-google-wont-lift-a-finger/ His case is still developing with loss of accounts, tax returns he stored on the Clouds, and a 25,000USD Bitcoin purchase. And we're not talking thousands of dollars in …

Here's something I've wondered about for years and never got around to asking. A recent example: I reinstalled Win 10. I transfered all data from Windows old to the new OS. When I highlight the Windows Old folder, it says it is empty. but when I start to delete the folder, the progression bar shows several hundred files being deleted. If the folder is empty, where do these figures come from? Thanks

I want several dates at the top of each page of a 365 page document, but I don't want to plug them in manually. Attached is a segment of the dates I have in a document, and another attachment showing how the Mac document looks. I'm trying to avoid a table because the positioning of them tables don't mesh well with the other elements, and I also tried to mess with the Equation aspect but I had no clue where to start. My last ditch effort will be to pay someone to plug in each date one at a time, …

Businesses all over the world are trying to figure out how to make the most of their digital marketing campaigns. The rise of influencer marketing is quite significant, and many celebrities that charge hundreds of thousands of dollars per Instagram post. However, many companies are already interested in figuring out how to use augmented reality (AR) for their future marketing and advertising campaigns. While augmented reality might not be as prevalent as some have predicted, there are still powerful corporations interested in utilizing it to their advantage. Of course, this doesn’t mean that consumers will start purchasing products and/or services …

I posted a question last week on Microsoft Technet and during the resulting discussion the following was posted: >VBScript will be gone in the next version of Windows. Almost all references to VBScript have disappeared from MS sites. In all the columns I've read about what's new and what's being removed from Windwos 10 in the spring update, no mention was made about vbScript. Has anyone else come across anything? I have a (rude word)-ton of scripts I'm going to have to convert unless I can just copy/restore cscript.exe and wscript.exe.

This is an extremely basic question, but I haven't found an answer yet. I recently purchased a brand-new computer with Windows 10 and at the moment am using the Microsoft Edge browser that came with it. I would like to open some offline (HTML) pages, but the Control-O feature to which I am accustomed in IE, Chrome, and Firefox, doesn't work. In the Edge browser, the hotkey Control-O resets the zoom level. Is there a replacement hotkey for Control-O in Microsoft Edge? Alternately, what is the non-hotkey method for opening an offline page in Edge? Note, I am *not* trying …

This may not be the best room to post this in but I didn't see any room that really jumped out at me for this, and since I'm doing all this on Linux desktop it made sense. I'm having trouble placing the meta data (artists, album, title) for a .wav song that I have. Through using three different programs I'm gettin different results. I can open the file in Rythmbox and select properties for the song and I can see the text fields for all the formentioned meta data above, thie fields all say 'Unknown' and the text fields aren't …

I want to see your suggestions on comparing CPanel and FASTPANEL. I used CPanel for some time but later I changed to FASTPANEL which is absolutely free but provides you with the same opportunities. Also FASTPANEL's design looks much better than CPANEL's one. So now I can't understand why people pay for CPanel. What panel do you guys use and why?

I am running Windows 10 64 bit on an HP Compaq 8200 Elite Small Form Factor with 8 GB RAM. I just learned the max RAM for this computer is 32GB. Though the computer runs fine as is, I've given some thought to upgrading the RAM. As I do not do any gaming and use the computer in just an 'ordinary' fashion, I'm wondering how much RAM would be overkill. For example, would I see more speed and general overall operating improvement at 16 GB? And even more at 32GB or no? Thanks

I’m dealing with a small SSD, and a 1 terabyte HDD. My issue is half the programs you install these days don’t even bother asking you where you’d like to install. About 90% of them I’m fine having on the HDD. What on earth - if anything - can I do to move an entitled, SSD-privileged program to my HDD and how do I repair the ensuing errors it makes?

An early Xmas present to myself arrived at Chez Moi last month in the shape of a rather thick credit card. It's not actually a credit card though, and while it's a chunky 6mm wide it is pretty smart truth be told. That's because it's a clinically validated cardiac diagnostic device, a heart monitor to you and me, called a WIWE. Once I got myself over the fact that I cannot stop pronouncing it as a wee wee, I quickly found the WIWE does a whole lot more than your Fitbit or smartwatch can do in terms of monitoring your …

My toshiba laptop screen suddenly turned black,but if looking closely you can still barely see what is on the screen, like the screen saver turned it self on, but I restarted my computer many times and it loads up but still no results. I had this problem about 4 months ago, so i called toshiba helpline and they were very helpful and gave me instructions while on the phone. The guy on the phone told me to shut down the system, unplug it, take the battery out and press ON button for 20 seconds, then realise the finger and wait …

For any karaoke freaks out there, There is an experimental package available for free from MIT called [spleeter](https://github.com/deezer/spleeter/wiki). This is a simple (in terms of use) AI which is quite remarkable in its ability to separate an audio file into component sounds. In its simplest form it can take a song and split it into separate instrumental and vocal files. Great for those of us who want to see how we would sound in place of the original artist. If you already have python 3.x installed you can get the package by pip install spleeter although it is always a …

I have a question for those who are looking for bugs and vulnerabilities for money. How are you looking for customers? Is it freelance or a permanent job or a hobby? I found one blockchain project that offers to find vulnerabilities for money. I will post the text of their proposal, if the administration does not mind: *In order to improve the security of the program code, we announce the beginning of bug-hunting. Anyone who finds a new critical bug (vulnerability) will get 100 000 TERA. Bug should be reported confidentially to progr76@gmail.com or telegram @progr76 TERA Foundation: https://terafoundation.org* What …

My boyfriend got me an Oculus Quest as an early birthday gift, and while I love it, he loves it wayyyyy more. Does anyone have any game recommendations? Unfortunately, the Oculus Quest does not share a marketplace with the Oculus Rift, and since the Quest has only been out since the summer, there isn't nearly as big of a directory yet compared to the Rift which has been growing its marketplace for years.

Sophos software has recent.y made their [Sandboxie](https://www.sandboxie.com/) software free for personal use and will soon be making it open source. For anyone unfamiliar with Sandboxie, it implements an isolated enviroment where you can run programs (even install them) without fear of affecting your system. When you run a program from within a sandbox, any files, registry settings, etc. are made within the sandbox. For example, if you save a file to the desktop, it will appear in the Sandboxie desktop (with an option to move it to the actual desktop). This is a much more convenient way to test new …

Living in California, I periodically need to log into my computer that's back in my home in New York. Not that often, typically just a couple times a year. But today, when attempting to connect, I got an error message saying, "The remote TeamViewer is running an old version which is out of date. Therefore, you cannot connect ot this Version anymore." Soooo, firstly, why is TeamViewer not backwards compatible?! Secondly, I haven't updated TeamViewer on my local computer either anytime recently, so both local and remote computers should be running versions of TeamViewer that were released roughly at the …

A survey of attendees at Infosecurity Europe earlier this month showed 70 percent in favour of the dictionary definition (in this case the Cambridge Dictionary) of a hacker being amended. The amendment in question being to remove 'illegality' from the definition. The current definition of a hacker is "a person who is skilled in the use of computer systems, often one who illegally obtains access to private computer systems". So what do you reckon, DaniWebbers? Is it time that hacker was reclaimed entirely (rather than relying upon black and white labels) and if so what word should replace it as …

In keeping with tradition, Microsoft has released the latest update before resolving a number of outstanding issues. But at least they now provide a more centralized location for getting update information. The home page (dashboard) can be found [here](https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/release-information/) and the specific page for the latest update can be found [here](https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/release-information/status-windows-10-1903).
