Here's why you really need an Antivirus and Firewall.

Lot's of us do not have antivirus's, and we think, well if I don't download anything bad I will never get a virus. Well, this isn't really true. When you visit a website, it could be doing many things behind your back, like Google, Bing, and more. Some websites with bad intentions download executable files to a hidden path on your computer, you will not notice it being downloaded and you will not notice it in your files. If you have an antivirus, it could easily automatically take care of this, without requiring you to manually take any action. Although, if you do not have an antivirus, it can be very easily for hackers to install "rootkit" which is used to spy on your activity and control your PC, and even through at your camera. Most Antivirus's also come with a free integrated Firewall System, which blocks any sort of fully web-based attack. Let's say your home internet speed is somewhere around 80MBPS (this is about the average internet speed), a hacker could send 500MBPS, 1GBPS, or more and take your internet offline. This is called a Denial Of Service Attack, or Distributed Denial Of Service Attack if multiple people are attacking the same target. A firewall could help prevent this, and ease up the attack result, but usually it cannot fully block it. Antivirus's and Firewall's are important, even if you are an "expert" with tech, you probably really need an Antivirus and Firewall.

Starship SN10 Aborts at T - 0 Seconds for its 10km test flight.

  Moments ago, Starship SN10 attempted a flight to 10km, to then orient itself into a unique horizontal bellyflop position, flip itself upright after it has descended to about 1km, deploy the landing legs, and touch down on the landing pad softly. This vehicle, Starship Number 10, uses Liquid CH4 (methane) and Liquid Oxygen aka LOX/LO2, used by its 3 powerful Raptor engines.  Today, SpaceX started their official stream for the Starship SN10 Flight. SpaceX have privated the stream replay, so we cannot replay it. In case you want the link: The vehicle began fueling up with Methane and LOX, and then shortly after, it started the engine chill process, which is the process of chilling the engines down in preparation for engine ignition, so the engine material does not crack or get damaged from sudden shock. The vehicle attempted to start up its 3 Raptor engines, by opening the fuel & oxidizer valves, starting up the turbopumps, sho

What is “the best” programming language?

Programming languages, there are so many of them. Some programming languages are way easier to learn than other ones. But which programming language, is “the best” programming language? This question, it is not really answerable. There is no “best programming languages”, they are all meant for different things, well, MOST of them. If I were to compare 2 different programming languages, meant for very similar things, like Batch and Bash, I would say Batch is easier, as its Syntax is not as confusing as Bash’s to the average person. Here is another example, C# is primarily used for computer applications, mostly on Windows, and HTML is a markup language, being used to make websites. I cannot compare C# (it is pronounced “See Sharp” if you didn’t know) because they are used for completely different things. It wouldn’t make sense to say, “C# is way better”, because what is it better at? Developing desktop applications? Sure! Then I can say HTML is better at making websites, it is not a logi

How do you know the universe was not created a few minutes ago?

       The universe is the giant area of space that we live in, which is observable. Anything past our universal border is not in our universe. People do say the universe is constantly expanding, but there is no proof of that, as the "imaginary" or, maybe not imaginary border at the "end" of our universe. But, how do you know that the universe even exists? Were you even in it last week? Did last week even exist? Last week, the universe could have been created, and you do not have proof against it. All of your knowledge and memory could have easily popped into existence a few seconds ago, tricking you into thinking you have existed for longer than you think. This is likely, but also unlikely, it is a 50/50 chance. A reason that this is unlikely is, there are a lot of things that do not make sense in our universe. Like, why does matter attract matter, resulting in gravity? This exists in our universe, but can it exist in a different universe? Not really, or most likel
