Wikipedia is warning its users that seeing ads on its website usually means your computer is infected with some type of malware. Most of the time, this means a rogue browser add-on or extension.
Wikipedia has issued a warning to its millions of visitors. The headline says it all: “If you’re seeing ads on Wikipedia, your computer is probably infected with malware.”
The free encyclopaedia gives three examples of how ads can get onto the site, but only one involves malware. First thing’s first: get yourself a solid antivirus solution like Microsoft Security Essentials or Malwarebytes and start scanning.
If your antivirus solution doesn’t find anything, the second way ads get onto Wikipedia is via browser add-ons and extensions. One example is a Google Chrome extension called “I want this.” To remove it, or any other such extension, open the options menu via the wrench icon on the top right, click on Settings, open the Extensions panel, and click the Remove button next to it.
The third way is your Internet service provider (ISP) may be injecting them into Wikipedia and other webpages. This is most likely the case with Internet cafes and “free” wireless connections. In this case, you can’t do anything other than just switch your method of accessing the Internet. You could of course block the ads, but that doesn’t solve the underlying problem.
“We never run ads on Wikipedia,” a Wikipedia spokesperson said in a statement. “Wikipedia is funded by more than a million donors, who give an average donation of less than 30 dollars. We run fundraising appeals, usually at the end of the year. But rest assured: you won’t be seeing legitimate advertisements on Wikipedia. We’re here to distribute the sum of human knowledge to everyone on the planet — ad-free, forever.”
So you want to hack your 360. Have no idea where to start? This thread should give you a general idea on what you can do with your 360. Lets get started. First of all you'll need to determine the age of your console. This will give you a general idea of what hack you can apply. On the back of the 360 there is a sticker near the AV port (Phat*&Slim*) On that you'll find the MFR date as well as the Console Serial and Product ID. Determining the age of the 360 You'll need to write down your MFR date. This will roughly tell you what board you have in your 360. Xenon: 2005 - 2007 203w power supply, can be JTAGged and RGH'd (14699 only) & R-JTAGged. Zephyr: 2007 - 2008 203w power supply, can be JTAGged and RGH'd (Hard to achieve) & R-JTAGged. Opus: Only from RRoD Repairs from MS (rare revisions) 203/175w power supply, can be JTAGged and RGH'd & R-JTAGged. Falcon: 2007 - 2009 175w power supply, can be JTAGged and
Step 1: Extract the Wii IR camera You'll need a Wii remote or "Wiimote" to start with. Normally they are about $40, in the end that is not too bad for a pretty awesome sensor. Otherwise you can check out ebay or elsewhere for used or broken Wii remotes. You'll need to rip apart the case. It has some crazy three pronged screws. I didn't want to completely trash the case so I made a small tool to take it apart. Now you need to desolder the 8 pins and the 2 struts holding the camera on the board. I used some desoldering braid. It wicks the solder away and makes it easy to get the camera out. Be careful, don't break the camera! You might want to keep the rest of the parts. You might be able to scrap other parts. Also, If you decide later to use the Wiimote again, you could always put the camera back in. Step 2: Interface Circuitry We'll need a small circuit to interface the IR camera to the arduino. I got all m
3D printing is revolutionizing the way objects are created, from plastic toys to ceramic dental crowns. But the seemingly boundless possibilities of 3D printing technology have one major limitation—the printers themselves, which are large, bulky, and stationary. Robert Flitsch didn’t like being constrained by the boxy shape of the 3D printer he used while he was a student at the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. So this mechanical engineering concentrator developed a wheeled additive manufacturing machine that can literally run (or drive) circles around a traditional 3D printer. He recently launched a startup named Addibots (a portmanteau of additive manufacturing and robots), to develop and market his mobile 3D printing robots. “By making the additive manufacturing components completely mobile, you break free of all the workspace limitations of 3D printing,” Flitsch said. “But Addibots also greatly opens the field to many new application space
