Ever since I gave Tiki advice on getting a new desktop, I've been wanting to share my experience with how my own build went, and I figure I ought to do that already.
I think I got a pretty solid design here: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/ZWHvRB Portability since I want to lug it between my parent's houses, decent in most areas of performance, very solid power supply, damage resistant motherboard. Unfortunately I hadn't ordered anything online before, and asked my mom for help. After some confusion with credit cards, we ended up going with a different case, this one to be exact: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/silverstone-case-sstps07b
Don't know how well my first choice would have done, but I'm having some issues with the one I went with. There's two fans on the case, but the connectors won't hook up directly to the power supply, and the motherboard only has one fan connector. This leads to some overheating problems that aren't helped be the generally cramped nature of the case of the thick cables used the power supply taking up so much space - thankfully most of them were taken out since it's modular, but that's probably why they're so thick. Not to mention the door over the intake that I need to remember to open whenever I set the computer down.
Not as bad as long as I don't run too much as once, brush the dust off the intake filters and keep the door over it open. I'll have to see if removing the dust lets me get past that one level of Quantum Conundrum (Road to higher Learning) that's been making my machine crash by the time I reach the end. Other than that, performance it pretty good. Windows 8 in nicer than Vista but I don't like what it's done to Search, I like having the pane and being able to use advanced search without going to a separate window. Backing things up weekly to the other hard drive is nice.
In addition to looking for a way to hook up both fans, I'll want to see if I can put the solid state hard drive in a removable case and just move that between similarly built machines instead of moving the whole machine around.
>>394738 If you're technically minded (have NoScript and such installed, keep your system updated, don't open random attachments, etc.): Microsoft Security Essentials If you're not (or are doing this for a relative): Avast! or Avira, though both can be naggy.
>>394786 Depends on the state. Some states allow open carry and concealed carry (Texas), some states allow concealed carry but not open carry (Colorado; a Sherriff told my mom they don't allow open carry because they don't want to deal with people calling the police just 'cause someone is walking around with a gun), and I'm sure some state does the opposite. Some large cities have stricter laws than the state.
Tiki...no gun can legally be undetectable by metal detector, and the steel barrel, firing pin, and springs, brass casings, and lead/copper bullets will all show on an X-ray. This is not the mythical Glock 6, this is a six plus one shot .380 subcompact (not at all new) made by a company infamous for quality control issues. All it has is a gimmick. Not printing is all a matter of the right weapon and clothes. If you're big enough, have the right holster in the right place, and youre in a parka, you can carry a super redhawk and not print.
The person who came up with the concept that all computer parts should just have some arbitrary fucking numbers in their name deserves to get shot. How the fuck is a 3930K better than a 4790K and then the 5820K is somehow better than both of those? Make some fucking sense you assholes!
Aw, Openmoko Inc. must have gone under or something. They made some really interesting designs. Was really thinking this would be a good early electronic device for children rather than giving them more standard computers or tablets.
And now Youtube doesn't like loading, either due to Pale Moon, or NoScript despite temporarily allowing youtube.com and ytimg.com. Embedded it's working, but on the Youtube page it stays a black rectangle.
After years of having an old flip phone I've finally been thrustted into the future as I got a smartphone for Christmas. Is there anywhere I can find some decent wallpapers for it? The ones on the phone are a bit lack luster.
My boyfriend is not good with computers. He went to download a game and ended up with lots of adware/unwanted stuff. I got most of it cleaned up but once in a while when he searches in the Chrome top bar he still gets a search redirect called "Looksafe" that brings up Yahoo. It's random as to when it will redirect to it--sometimes it won't for hours, sometimes it will do it 10x in a row.
I have run CCleaner to get rid of any visible programs, disable start-up options and etc. I have done Malwarebytes as well as Hitman Pro, which both found stuff I missed (registry keys and system32 stuff) but after rebooting and run again could not find anything else. I have fixed Chrome's settings. I have uninstalled and re-installed Chrome a few times, thinking it may have been something attached to Chrome's files. I've mainly been working on bleepingcomputer's guides so I'm sure I've left off something that I've done before.
I don't know what else to do. I was considering Combofix, but after reading some warnings it got me nervous and I'm scared to do it now. Any suggestions?
>>395731 If it's just happening in Chrome (have you tested with IE/FF?), it could just be one of those add-ons that gets bought up by a spam company and converted into a spam app. If it's recent it wouldn't have been caught by the various cleaner programs. Check the Extensions (Settings > Extensions) and remove as much as possible, even if it looks innocent.
You can also try running Hijack This, though you have to know what to look for and nuke yourself from the results, and I've had success with Ad-aware in the past but it looks like it's turned into a regular anti-virus program? I suppose you can still give it a shot.
>>395750 I'll consider this if all else fails. The only things he has on his computer right now are wallpapers and games (mostly Steam) so it's not like it would be a huge effort but I'd rather do that as a last resort.
>>395758 Haven't tested IE. I'll see if it affects that as well. Extensions were all cleaned. The only one I had left was Adblock Plus which I uninstalled before uninstalling Chrome and then reinstalled later.
I tried Adaware. It picked up some things but not everything. It used to be my go-to for cleaning up so it was one of the first things I tried.
I'll try Hijack This as well.
I'm not going to see him again until Thursday but I'll let you guys know how it goes. Thank you both!!
Other ideas: >Check the startup programs in msconfig for anything unfamiliar Don't trust it, though, as a good virus/malware will fuck with it and make it look ok. (Hijack This looks at startup programs, too, so this isn't that necessary.) >Boot into safemode w/ networking (after the BIOS splash screen disappears, mash F8 like the Fist of the North Star) Check if it still happens. If not, then the problem is likely another program intercepting the Port 80 traffic. If so, then it's either the browser itself or a really deep malware. This is also the best way to run Hijack this or any other anti-malware program, as that makes it less likely for the malware to interfere. Also checking startup/installed programs/etc. in safemode is best. >Use Process Explorer to check for weird programs running Download Process Explorer (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896653.aspx) on a known-good computer and burn it to a CD, which I think you can run it from to keep whatever-it-is from altering the program on storage (if not, you can copy it to the desktop.) This gives you a deeper look than Task Manager does, and you can use it to see what is hiding in svchost.exe (which does a lot of services in multiple instances.) Again, look up anything that seems weird, especially if appears when you do a search in Chrome. Speaking of... >Look at installed Services Sometimes virii/malware mimics a Service, so look up anything you're unfamiliar in the Services (through Control Panel > Administration, or Win+R > services.msc). There are a lot of things that look vague/questionable but are legit, so I wouldn't do this unless everything else comes up negative and you still don't want to scrub the drive.
Also, if you want to try Chrome again, make sure to get the full installer from another, known-clean computer, as if you try to download it from his computer the malware might intercept and inject its own installer to make you think you're getting a clean one.
So here's this channel I've been watching today that's nothing but weird gadget advertisements. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUi4aspUAMcEG5ZEdnOrBQg
There's some audio issues with it at times, and a few of the products are dumb, but they at least tend to seem pretty science fiction-ish. And if you get that dumb light thing, I suggest you mount it on the wall *after* you wash your hands, not before.
LookSafe is pure unadulterated malware, it gives zero benefits to the user.
Here's a full instructable, print it out, go into safe mode, and have fun. http://malwaretips.com/blogs/looksafe-virus-removal/
>Combofix Is basically giving remote access to a pro without actually doing it. The pro can make purpose built lists of what to do, email you the list, you copypaste the list into combofix, and combofix carries out the orders. Obviously it's only useful if you have a pro malware expert on your hands to email and such.
>Hijack This Mainly diagnostics, again useless unless you know how to use it.
Pic is my modest tool collection for my last malware search. nW----- thingy is GMER, you might not want to use it. iExplore obviously isn't what it says it is, it's Rkill (registry killer from bleeping computer), which kills active registries that can respawn a virus. JRT is junkware removal tool. Else should be findable through google.
Also in addition have normal stuff like crap cleaner, microsoft security essentials, spybot search and destroy, and most of all Malwarebytes tools https://www.malwarebytes.org/downloads/ ESPECIALLY their chameleon, which you can run in 'safe mode with networking' with decent results.
If an average user can't root out a problem with these tools, he's gonna need pro help.
>>397298 >>I felt a little bad for being so happy they were closing, though...
What you felt was happiness toward getting a good deal, not on the fact that the store is closing. I've been to a few store auctions and felt the same way you did. Happy about a deal, sad about the end of something. As far as I know not ALL of the store locations are closing. I've spoken to a Radioshack guy where I live and he said that one store in the next town is staying open. So maybe there are others. My regret is that I never learned how to soder those boards together to make a blinking light or a robot. I'd would have liked to have learned how to do that.
Got new fans for my computer. The old fans had more or less become useless, so airflow in the case was bad and my CPU/GPU fans would spin as though trying to reach orbit before. These are so quiet and nice, plus they have LEDs for some ambient lighting.
Got myself a new rig, but thought myself real clever by trying to install my old SSD in it. Turns out that shit doesn't work. And now I'm kinda torn, since I lost my Windows 7 disc. Should I buy a new one or risk pirating it and upgrade to 10 when the time comes?
>>398590 If you still have the Win7 key, I think you can download an official ISO from Microsoft's website.
And do you still have the old PC? Put the SSD back in that one and create a Restore Disk. It will allow you to do a "restore" that should, IIRC, make it possible to reset drivers etc. when run in the new PC.
My connection keeps shutting off and on and it's driving me fucking crazy. Every 5 minutes it cuts out and comes back after another 5 minutes, and Win7 says the DNS server just isn't responding. I called our ISP and they replaced our router, but that didn't help, nor does resetting the damn thing. Called them again and they said they'd send someone out, but that never happened.
>>399365 Try changing your DNS settings http://www.howtogeek.com/164981/how-to-switch-to-opendns-or-google-dns-to-speed-up-web-browsing/ I changed to the Google one years ago when I was having connection issues every day because of my ISP.
>have a pretty good midrange rig now >oh hey, all my games are running at a solid 80+ FPS and I've got a big new empty hard drive, maybe I can try recording some webms >framerate tanks to <20 Goddamn. No wonder all those Youtubers have like $6k+ machines.
Earlier, I tried installing MegaSYNCH because I use Mega links so much and they had a song written about then once so why not? But then the installer was super dumb restarted explorer.exe under the admin account I used the installer with, so I cancelled the installation and restarted explorer. Later I rebooted for updates.
More recently (today), I moved an image from one account on my computer to another and noticed my main and admin accounts were giving password hints when i never set them to do that. They were arbitrary things like -1 for the admin and a string of four numbers/letters for the main one, which has nothing to do with my actual passwords? When I reset for an update again soon after the hints disappeared. I think at some point I should consider changing my account passwords.
>>400037 English for most of them, especially lower level ones that expect ASCII. There's programming language made by people with other native languages, like Ruby, but even there keywords are English. Only exception I know of is http://animalnewyork.com/2013/arabic-programming-language-at-eyebeam-%D9%82%D9%84%D8%A8-opens-the-world/
Well, I use TrueCrypt (the loli-ish stuff on /pco/ is a very dark grey area where I live) and one of the folders was one with a hidden volume (basically it makes one "fake" encrypted folder with one password and a "real" encrypted folder behind it. Yeah, I was young and paranoid) and spent ten minutes trying to remember the password to the real archive, since I left vague clues in a notepad file. (60 char password)
Then I decided to change it to a simpler password, before realising that was also my password for the fake archive, so when I type in the real password, it comes up with the fake archive instead. So I freaked out a bit, but then thought about it and realised than they both still existed, but the fake one opened first. So I changed the password and luckily only the fake half changed, and the real half kept the same password. So I'm really happy!
As mentioned at the start of this thread I was trying to get a new PC for about $2000 dollars but I'm kinda whistling in the dark here, does anyone know a good way to check compatibility, it's really annoying.
Motherboard = Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3P = $122 Ram = Corsair Dominator Platinum 16GB 1866MHzSpecs = $240 Videocard = GeForce GTX 980 = $700 Solid State Drive = Samsung 850 EVO or PRO based on advice $269 Medium Tower 700 Waterbed + Chassis = Corsair Graphite 780T PC $260 Processor = AMD FD8350FRHKBOX FX-8350 FX-Series 8-Core Black Edition $239.00 $1830
This is what I'm looking at thus far, if you've got any suggestions I'd be extremely happy to hear them, please mind the $2000 limit.
>>401681 for concerns if they'll work well together run it through here. https://pcpartpicker.com/
For now that looks solid as the zone for current ram is 1866 and anything more than that is getting fractional increases. In a few years I'd say a full Desktop Replacement Laptop could do you for a good number of years.
I say wait on that as Nvidia is just now putting unlocked full 980s into laptops and I think it'll be about two or three years till they get all the kinks worked out as far as cooling goes and the pascal release doesn't look like it'll be here for at least another six months or so.
I'm thinking design based too heavily around what users do most often at the expense of making it harder to perform the unexpected can be likened to food designed around the substances most common in the human diet while ignoring essential trace nutrients.
Now that I've got my superfast new internet, I'm having a hard time finding places that even provide enough download speed to fully use it. Even Steam caps my download at 6MB/s. Weirdly enough, the highest I've gotten so far was 8.8 on PSN, which I thought was supposed to be notoriously slow.
I was checking my youtube earnings (one dollar yay) and saw "Youtube Red" mentioned. I googled and found pic related.
>lets you view youtube without ads Just use adblock >download videos to watch offline Just use firefox extensions or iPhone downloader apps >something about music use other sites literally made for this
I don't spend much money, but this is something I will never pay for.
>>402281 They will probably pay off the Adblock guys and/or threaten legal action if they don't disable it while on Youtube. Same thing for the downloading videos thing, they might threaten to take those sites down. I don't understand the music thing though.
So, is Windows 7 ruined? I heard about Microsoft updating 7 and 8 with their spooky Windows 10 shit. I recently reinstalled from my recovery drive, and somehow it auto-updated and rewrote over my original, 2011 version. I've manually removed/switched off the features, but I'm seriously contemplating installing Gentoo now.
>>402420 You can uninstall the Windows 10 stuff updates and mark the updates as hidden to avoid having them installed. Though I won't blame you for switching to avoid problems we might not even know about.
>still haven't gotten a fan splitter for this desktop >can't even run a full scan with Microsoft Security Essentials without it shutting down the computer >not even when running in safe mode from the command prompt Dunno if this is even caused by the heat problem or some dumb malware that doesn't like full scans, looked at the log of recent shutdowns and don't know what to make of it.
After upgrading (with a crash for good measure) to Firefocks 43, all videos on all sites stopped working. I tried (almost) everything, including deleting and reinstalling the browser. Nothing worked.
And then I tried the last resort, which is deleting the browser AND manually getting rid of all preferences folders semi-hidden on Apple systems in semi-secret folders. This kind of manual full cleanup takes some time and is frustrating, but at least I was able to 100% delete all Firefox-related things from my system.
Restarted computer, and reinstalled Firefox AGAIN.
Videos were now fixed.
Mozilla needs to release an automatic "uninstall Firefox, all preferences, all bookmarks, and all add-ons" script. Would save people some time.
Speaking of the NOW WORKING THANK YOU SO MUCH update, 43.0 is noticeably faster and snappier.
>>403855 That woulnd't change the fact that something which worked before suddenly changed to not working without a good reason. Looking into it further, apparently having both types set to open in paint.net by default caused it to think I wanted them grouped in a "paintnet files" type. A tenuous correlation, and though the problem is worked around by having gifs open in a different program I'd prefer software that doesn't expect me to accept such a trend toward making things more presumptuous. Fortunately, there are some projects that aren't going in that direction, so I'll try keep an eye on them.
Turns out I'm not only moving to a better place, but also to an area with better internet coverage. Now I need to decide wether I want 100Mbit/s with no cap for 20 bucks or 200Mbit/s with a monthly cap of 1TB for 25.
>>404056 That's cool, something Telecoms in the US were paid to do decades ago. Yea whole lotta progress on that. Hope he keeps those he employs to do it to a strict time table and doesn't let them bullshit.
So this past Christmas, I got a Kano: http://us.kano.me/ It's a little computer thing for teaching children about computery stuff, and I figure it'd be a nice little machine for coding on Linux without haivng to deal with dual booting, virtual machines or whatever. For some reason you can easily break the video settings. For some reaosn there's only the option to flip the display and a menu that combines all the other options into a big list. So to change the resolution you also need to know what refresh rate the monitor has, unless you just leave the setting at "automatic".
I wanted a lower resolution for reading better on the small screen you make with the screen kit, but there was no indication as to what the current refresh rate was. I figured I could just guess, and if I got it wong there'd be somethig to keep the whole computer from being broken. I mean, it is made for children three and up so I don't think it ought to break just from a video setting change. Incidentally, I thought a big thing about Linux was that you don't need to reboot for things, but it makes you reboot to change video settings?
But not only does Kano nee dot reboot to alter video settings, it also just leaves you with a black screen if the settings don't work, leaving you unable to see what you're doing to go into the settinga again to change them back. So this morning I got the Kano to use safe mode by putting a the drive in my desktop and going into a config file.
That made the monitor work at all, but now it won't start the desktop and just keeps rebooting itself after showing the command prompt and running a script in the background that presumably tries to laod the desktop and reboots when it realises it's in safe mode.. So now I'll go looking up information on what else I can try to get this toy to actually work again.
>computer crashes >restart >computer decides to do that long-ass disk check thing >press any key to abort within 10 seconds >mash entire keyboard, but the computer doesn't detect the keyboard during that think for some unknown reason Looks like I'm on mobile for the next hour
After a few crashes, two different Blue Screens and a little bit of messing around, I have come to the conclusion that the cause was........ a fucking .ogv file from encyclopedia dramatica. it didn't even need to be opened and it still caused fatal crashes after a few minutes of logging on. deleted it and now the computer is running fine
So windows 10. I like that it actually looks like a desktop over 8.1 but before I upgrade what are the ways to defang all of windows 10 intrusive nonsense. This is my work and gaming lappy not the home base Surfer which is staying with 7.
>>404961 >what are the ways to defang all of windows 10 intrusive nonsense Really, you either need to get over your paranoia or you need to stick with 7. There are ways to turn off some of the features, but Windows 10 is never going to be intrusion-free.
>>404961 I'm on a similar situation right now. Spybot Anti-Beacon dosn't defang W10 but tell it to not bite. https://github.com/Nummer/Destroy-Windows-10-Spying declaws and defangs W10 as far as I know because it hasn't updated in a while.
Also unplug your compoter from the internet and preferibly use a pirated copy of w10. When installing it run a custom installation and and turn off everything that looks suspicious.
>>405481 And here I had just recently written down some of my ideas on chatbot making that were initially centered around exactly that sort of problem. I should go ahead and finish it up, then put it on the internet somehwhere.
>need to downsize some videos >have two tools, Freemake converter and Handbrake converter >Handbrake is excellent, options galore >Freemake has next to no options, but allows length cropping of videos I halved the length of a 40 min video using Freemake and the file was larger once completed. Thats how bad the encoding is. I have a shit computer and I'm going for a low file size so some videos are taking an hour in Handbrake. So if I want to crop and compress a video, I need to convert it in Freemake and then convert it again in Handbrake.
From a porn comic thread: >"Jpeg is also a lossy filetype, and tends to lose fidelity with subsequent distributions. A 'fresh' jpeg might look fine, but once it's been copied and transfered a few times pixels start to take on the wrong colors and things become blotchy and mishapen."

There is no valid reason to own a desktop personal computer in this day and age.
If you absolutely need to have a computer, you can use any cloud computing netbook. If you want to play games or browse the internet, every cellphone has this option, and if you don't like that just use Steam on any cloud computing netbook as well.
The environment is a beautiful thing. Desktops are tools specifically meant designed for obsolescence and environmental destruction. It's unbelievable that people today still think consumers should have an option of buying something that wrecks the planet for the rest of us. You're not a programmer, you're never going to be.
I'm literally screaming with laughter at all you wanna be faux haxxor idiots. you will never be able to hack someone because our police force will stop you.
Look just because I was into owncloud doesn't mean I embody the negative stereotypes of people in the gentoo community.
So I threw out my PC. So I bought a netbook. So WHAT?!
From my experience it's a HUGE improvement for anyone who has a decent internet connection, after just a few moments of using it I was saying to my self "this is the future", "this is the future", "this is the future". That line just couldn't stop going through my head, I had trouble sleeping that night because of it.
>>407324 But on the flipside; bad results have a tendency to result in the sub-par employee being fired or other stuff. Maybe the Google overlords, or youtube itself, have a revolving door policy in regards to youtube layout.
Any other such site doesn’t come close to having YouTube’s cultural reach and is thus destined to be seen as “lesser”. YouTube came into the world at the exact right time to achieve its dominance, and until someone does YouTube better than YouTube (improbable but not impossible), YouTube is the only non-streaming video site that matters.
I'm happy I decided to run a scan: found this baby ("Diplugem", adware)
Some bits of it were pretty smart: it adjusts the links for the ads in google searches (I was wondering why my hosts file was blocking the connection again), and it installs extensions to your browser with the installation date a year earlier than when you got the malware, and adjusts the browser to stop updating.
Just one flaw: I don't have accounts called Administrator and Guest. (I uninstalled Torch years ago and had never heard of Dragon (by Comodo)). [To be fair, it installed on every other account too]
>>407467 Not the same person you were talking with, but when I ask about alternatives to Youtube, I'm not asking for advice on what businesses are a sound financial investment. I'm asking for any any all technically similar video sharing services that I could investigate on my own time and consider hosting videos on. To me, "good" would mostly mean "able to handle the amount of traffic I expect to get", and maybe "with a monitization policy that has some transparency".
Personally, I was curious about blip.tv but didn't look into it much because for the longest time it seemed like they were pushing for a very particular style of high budget drama that I just wasn't interested in watching, much less eager or able to produce. Then by the time I found out about it hosting a wider variety of shows it was already declaring that it would close down. Whether or not any attempt at rivaling Youtube appears unviable, I want to know whatever I can about them, because to deliberately refrain from spreading word of mouth about websites that lack cultural reach is to enforce a self-fulfilling prophecy of failure upon them.
Oh, I’m not suggesting that you avoid looking for non-YouTube sites—or that you avoid spreading word about them. Alls I was saying is that no other video site is yet in the position to topple YouTube from its throne as “king of the video websites”. No current alternative to YouTube will have the recognition or traffic levels that YouTube does, and that should always be a factor when you’re looking into those alternatives.
(Being able to host your own content independent of any site or service such as YouTube is the best alternative, though.)
>>409456 Yeah, that's true, espeically the last part about hosting independantly. It's just that on a personal level it can be hard to hnadle the bandwidtch of having somewht popular video and then you also have to look for advertisers yourself. If I make something myself I guess it'll probably go on Newgrounds though, being that they allow non-flash stuff now and it's still unlikely I could meet that high of a quality standard.
Was also thinking Cartoon Hangover is oddly big for something that relies on Yotube, but now they just announced that they're moving to something called VRV which will also be taking up Roosterteeth and Crunchyroll? I just hope it doens't require a smartphone, because I'm using some dumb carrier-rebranded LG thing that I grabbed to get the cheapest thing that let me share a phone plan with my mom.

For the longest time I thought buying a PS Vita was a mistake.
Only now do I realize it really wasn't. Cause once you crack the device, it opens up a lot of opportunities, for example to eventually, theoretically, port the PS2, PSP, and PS1 emulators on the device, and play all those great games anywhere you are!
Why is there no plaintext editor (Notepad++, Sublime Text, etc.) that can handle filetype associations as separate files rather than lumping multiple filetypes into one specific file association? If media player programs can do it, why can't a fucking text editor?
Their really ought to be a service that's just "download and update a special fallback font for handling emoji or other special characters that otherwise just render as boxes".
>>411619 Convenience, aka "shoving everything together into a disorganized lump". As for why the disparity, I guess customization is just higher on the lsit of what people think of when looking for media players, while with text editors it's just an image of a forum argument over which one is the best ever that everyone ought to switch to right now.
>Convenience, aka "shoving everything together into a disorganized lump".
Except it's pretty fucking inconvenient to have CSS files, text files, and other plaintext-editable files lumped into a single filetype, given a single icon, and be named a single way in file details (e.g., "Notepad++ File"). In Windows 10, it's nigh impossible to correct the problem without extensive registry edits that may not even stick. Like I said, a lot of media player program can do the "separate icons for separate filetypes" thing - Foobar does it, MPC-HC does it - so why can't a fucking text editor get it done?

Twitter went and fucked its interface so hard that I decided to try Mastodon. Despite lacking a few features that makes Twitter more useable (word filters, indications of a reply chain), it also has a few features that Twitter does not have (a Content Warning option that basically acts like a spoiler tag, per-post privacy settings). I like it better than Twitter already.
Cable and sattelite providers utilize receivers that provide a menu of channels, which included abbreviatinos fo channel names. However, they don't let you sort the channel alphabetically by their abbreviation, and their search features only let you look for shows rather than channel names. This makes looking up a specific channel to see if you have it and if so what shows it's airing needlessly complicated.
