23572 Battery Issues
I have Samsung Galaxy SII. It won't accept charge off either of the previously functioning charging cables I have for it, but it appears to wake up briefly before turning off at 0% charge when plugged into its data cable and USB. It's yet to reach any sort of functioning battery level. Does this seem like a solely battery issue? Any help appreciated, ta.

I don't know whether your phone would be affected by it, but apparently for a time "too flat to charge" was a real thing. Apparently on some phones the power required to kick off a charging cycle was more than the threshold at which it would shut off.

You might want to double-check that it is actually not accepting a charge by leaving the charger plugged in for an extended period (e.g. overnight), because it may be that while it's not displaying stuff on the screen it's still charging anyway. If that still fails, then it's probably an issue with the handset. If you have access to another phone that takes the same battery, try sticking your battery in there and see if it charges, or try and charge the battery from the other phone in your own.

That seems to have been the issue; after hooking it up to its data cable it managed to acquire some charge, after that plugging it in to its mains charger was fine. How peculiar. I've still ordered a new battery in case its current one is wearing out; I think I was mostly very perplexed by it doing this because I was tripping at the time.

Hello chaps,
I've recently returned back to Windows after having a Macbook for 6 years (As much as I wanted to, I could not justify paying the price for one, as I tend to use my iPhone more for daily internet activities.)

My laptop came with McAfee which pops up every now and again to remind me I'm on a 30 day trail.

Could any of you lads suggest a good alternative Firewall/Antivirus/Antimalware suite?

I'm running Windows 8.1

Thanks :)

I have three partitions. A, B and C. C has the OS on it and is the smallest. B has data and A has nothing on it. Originally I wanted to just extend C but I can't do that because A has bad sectors. So I have two options:

1. Clone C to A, then extend A and resize C. (don't want to do this because it'll fuck with GRUB).

2. Move B to A and resize C. Which do you recommend?

I had one I got in 2001 and it developed a bad sector in 2005. I used a program called HDD Regenerator whose blurb said

>Repairs most bad sectors by remagnetizing the disk surface without losing your data. Works independantly of the file system, making it compatible with all PCs, operating systems and hard drives

and the drive seemed perfect thereafter. I was still using it about three years ago and it still works but it's 60GB so too small to be of use for anything.

3. Take a backup and buy a new drive.

Agree 100% with >>23477 - your question in /g/ should be related to the cheapest place to buy a new hard drive, because everything else you're considering is irrelevant. It's about to fail. Hard drives are like ballpoint pens, you are going to get through them in life, and as long as you recognise the warning signs when they're about to go wrong, you'll be alright.

This. Modern hard disks are overprovisioned, and reallocate bad sectors as needed. If you're seeing reports of bad sectors then it's likely running out (if not already run out) of spare sectors to reallocate, in which case for all intents and purposes the disk has failed and you need to do something about it.

No. It's debatable whether it fixes errors or just hides them but it's a real program.

The bad sector never came back after fully wiping the hard drive and putting a different OS on it.

>Then the personal who programmed it is responsible. This is bloody obvious.
The person who writes a program is no more responsible for its use for criminal purposes than Ford are responsible for Transit drivers driving carelessly. The person using a program is considered to be committing the offence with the use of a tool. Not that any of that is relevant to what went on here, because last I heard it isn't actually illegal to buy drugs.

Where things get interesting is areas of law where agency doesn't apply, such as road traffic laws. Depending on what the underlying matter is, liability attaches specifically to one of the driver, the owner, the keeper, or the adult passenger (in the case of seatbelt offences). Consider a driverless car. If this automaton lands itself on double yellows, then the owner is responsible (unless one of the statutory exemptions applies). What if it is caught speeding (driver liability)? What if you're in the driving seat, but switched the vehicle to automatic some time earlier? What if you're in the back seat as a passenger? What if nobody's in it at all and you're sat in the office having summoned it from wherever it parked itself earlier in the day?

Well, funny you should bring up what is and is not relevant, because the exhibition the bot bought drugs for is located outside of the jurisdiction of UK drug laws...

>Consider a driverless car.
Given the caution and high profile with which these things are being introduced, I imagine the law has plenty of time to catch up with them and that these questions are being asked and answered by the right people.

If the talk I've been hearing is anything to go by, they've got about four to six weeks. There were trials here earlier this year, but they were limited to quieter roads and required a driver to retain control over the vehicle.

I've become paranoid that my outlook email account isn't receiving all emails properly. It's quite important as I'm in the process of applying for many different jobs, and up until now my inbox has been quite busy.

My mother sent me some things through the other day and they took a few days to arrive, and when trying to confirm my account on a website, the email didn't arrive. (Yet on my gmail account it arrived instantly)

I don't know if this is related, but when playing FIFA on the pc, I noticed that I had a NAT type restrictive message. That has never happened to me before, not sure if that NAT filter or whatever it is, can fuck with my emails .

Is there a way to check if my email account is receiving emails properly?

Is there any way I can retrieve a copy of yesterday's ITV News?

One would think I could use ITV Player on itv.com, but the 6pm news programme is absent. I found mention of this routine removal saying they'd "found people wanted more specific coverage of individual stories".

Could someone with Sky/VM please check whether their on-demand services carry it? Otherwise is there another avenue available?

If you're curious why I'm interested it's because a friend appears on it and he wants a copy.

I don't know what any of this means. Can someone explain it to me as if I were from the 1500s?

BT has made a statement now, that the effect is negligible.

>Update 27th November 2014: We have received a statement from BT which is reproduced in full below, and tells a slightly different story to the ASSIA release.

>"BT has been defending a claim brought by ASSIA since November 2011. They had asserted three patents against BT but during the proceedings, they had to narrow their allegations and withdraw one of these patents entirely.
>In January 2014, the High Court found BT was infringing on only a minor part of one patent, and the Court of Appeal, whilst invalidating the majority of the claims of ASSIA's other patent, ruled that BT's network infringes what remains of the other patent.
>Although BT was disappointed with the ruling, we have made minor changes to our programming which means these two decisions have no material effect on the operation or performance of our networks."

So it seems that ASSIA has pretty much spent millions in legal fees over the years, over what boils down to just a few insignificant lines of code.
