School tracks my personal computer

So, my school uses a program called GoGuardian. I have a school-issued Chromebook with GoGuardian and a MacBook pro without it. We use Google Meet to attend class, and I usually use my Mac to join, as it has a better connection. One of my teachers recently said that GoGuardian had an update that let her track my Mac. She also mentioned something about google meet that may or may not be related. Can my teacher actually track my mac? If so, to what extent? Is she able to see my chrome search history? Is she able to see what other apps I have running? Other chrome tabs? How does it work? Most importantly, what can I do to prevent it?

Do you think that soon enough all personal computers will exist in the cloud and be accessed via low-power devices similar to a service like Google Stadia?

I'm not sure if I'm being super clear in my question, but basically I'm thinking that as the trend of everything moving to the cloud continues, we will see personal computers essentially offered as a service. You will be able to purchase a "laptop" (which will essentially just be a lower power streaming device that has a keyboard and a screen) for a relatively low-cost and then pay a subscription fee to access a high-powered desktop environment in the cloud. Then you will be able to easily upgrade storage, performance, etc.. by paying a bit more per month. I think this would be vastly preferable to running everything on a local machine because it will be way less expensive for the average person to have a powerful personal computer and it won't become obsolete in a few years because it can easily and cheaply be upgraded.

Myself and some of my friends have found that our public high school has installed software on our personal computers without our or our parents consent, is there something we can do legally?

We’re from Austin, Texas. I’m posting this on behalf of my friends aswell.

A friend of time told us they had discovered a program called LanSchool on their personal computer. This software as advertised as anti-cheat, and allows remote screen capture, webcam access, hard drive and google drive access. This can be done by any IT staff member, or in the right circumstances, any teacher. This has been discovered on several student’s personal computers, including mine. and both them and their parents were clueless. Mine were too, and I’m also 18.

The best we can figure form the data and talking to other redditors, the school used their SSO website to secretly download the software onto students computers using chrome’s automatic download feature, without alerting the user”. The software doesn’t appear on desktop, and is cleverly hidden in appdata folders. We have pictures to prove it’s existence on student computers, and it’s install date. No one or their parents have ever signed a contract consenting to this.

Is there anything we should do legally? Many parents and students are concerned about student privacy, and due to the recent nature of the discovery, the school hasn’t addressed it yet.

As a first year computer science major, I finally solved a personal problem using code!

For as long as I've been learning how to code, I've only been solving professors' problems, assignments, and absorbing material. But, today while I was looking over my extensive spreadsheet of review problems (i.e 1-24, 28, 29, 31-37, 43-48), I wanted to know how many questions I'd have to do total.

I made a simple Python script that parsed the string and counted each group of numbers to give me a total problem count. Now, this isn't any revolutionary solution - in fact, it was quite easy but I was beyond thrilled to have it work just the way I wanted after thinking I could make the process faster than just counting them in my head.

Queues for my personal computer.

After over a year of using Shadow, I have finally hit the user queueing I've only read about from other users. I instantly felt a desire to walk away from Shadow, because a user queue defeats the purpose of an always accessable computer. I instantly felt like one of my parents was telling me I needed to wait my turn because a sibling was currently playing.

I shouldn't feel that way as a grown adult that spends money on their hobby. Am I wrong in this?

LPT: If you are trying to learn coding or currently are my tip to you from personal experience is learn how computers work! And I dont mean like the parts of computers or building a pc. The real science behind computers.

I always loved coding and unluckily I wasnt guided the right way. Coding isnt meant to be learnt by just writing lines of code. You have to understand the very core foundations of computers, the history of computers and how the hardware works. Look if your learning coding because you want to get a GOOD job and money, this tip is not for you. If you have passion for coding and love it, then this is. I was introduced to arduinos, assembly language, history of computers and logic gates. Due to that I am able to understand any language with ease because I have the very core foundations well versed. Trust me put some time in and ull pick up a language at an unbelievable pace. These courses are available on udemy but I suggest books like β€œhow do it know”, bramch education videos on how certain stuff works, crash course computer science and finally the great documentation of the languages itself.

Work has me installing VPN on personal computer. Would creating separate partition isolate/reduce privacy and security issues?

My work made some changes to their digital infrastructure, and now has asked us to install a VPN on our home computers in order to access our work. (We work from home.) This raises some concerns regarding privacy/security. I'm trying to figure out how I can mitigate these issues.

One idea I had is to create a new partition that I'll only use for work purposes. I'll put my VPN on there. The other partition would be for personal use. Would setting up separate partitions prevent any negative effects related to this VPN from affecting the portion of my computer that I use for personal reasons? Or are there other things I should do here?

I'm fairly new to Linux, but am picking up a lot of useful info here. Much appreciated.

FWI - In 2030, for the 2032 election, it has been decided all voting will be done by the Internet, using personal recognition technology. No mail-in ballots, only in person voting for those who have testified under oath they have no access to a computer. It's a done deal. How goes the election?

Everyone has a year to go to Voter Registration in their County, re-register with a photo taken. In 2032 everyone will receive a voter log-in, then, if they vote, they will received a private verification of how they voted, via a totally separate system, so they can protest if they didn't vote that way. Let's add a $5000 fine for lying about this (because you want to change your vote? Do you see this as feasible (if not by 2032, then 2040?), and do you think Americans can make it work without riots or major disruption?

As the title says, I am trying to compile a list of Computer Science books that were undoubtedly helpful in both forming your basic understanding and building in-depth concepts of those topics.

I occasionally come across posts in this sub where people ask for recommendations for books, and people come up with really great recommendations. Some of the books I have read and greatly benefited from, some I have not read or heard about for the first time,

I am asking you to come forward with books on any Computer Science topic that you really found helpful during learning that topic and you highly recommend.

For example- people mention the "dragonbook" for learning compilers, Operating Systems: Three Easy Pieces also gets mentioned a lot.

Don't shy away from mentioning classics such as CLRS, TAOCP, etc.

Extra credits if your teacher mentioned the book as 'the Bible' for that topic! Or the book is a classic!

I believe everyone can benefit from this.

Help is highly appreciated.

I like to use a different Operating System (OS) for my personal computer than my work computer.

I have used pretty much every OS (of the top 5, I don't count random things like "Blackberry OS" or obscure Linux types) in my working career. One thing that I have noticed is that I like to use a different OS for personal use than what I use at work. While I was working on MacOS I liked to use and Android and a Windows computer at home. I now work in Windows and I like to use an iPhone and MacOS at home.
I do this because it adds another layer of disconnect from work while I am at home. One thing during this pandemic that I am sure a lot of people have noticed is that being off work does not feel the same as it did before. If you are working remotely, you may be sitting in the same office chair to game/browse the internet, or moved one room over to the couch. It just isn't as relaxing as it used to be.
The same can be said about the OS you are doing your computing on. Being on a different one gives you a sort of release from your work life. I get that this doesn't always work, for instance, I am a PC Gamer so I kind of HAVE to use Windows for that. But my casual browsing is done on my laptop which is a Mac and it just feels better; it did when I was working on a Mac and browsing on my Windows computer as well.

IWTL Basic of Computer Networking, Router, Modem, LAN, Port forwarding for Personal Use / Home Networking.

Recently I purchased a Netgear Router for home networking. Connected it with LAN to my Modem which is basically a Modem + Router box.

The new Netgear router installed OpenWrt as that was the main purpose of buying extra router.

But the OpenWrt is not as easy as I thought. Though it is working fine and I have managed to use it as AP, I want to learn more about basic networking.

Tried many YT videos, r/HomeNetworking, OpenWrt documentation but it is all too much technical and only how to info.

Where can I find basic of home networking? A youtube tutorial or any documentation.

How do different languages refer to personal devices such as phones, computers, etc?

Greetings reddit.

In English (as an American), we generally refer to our personal devices as extensions of ourselves, i.e. "Do you have reception?" vs "Does your phone have reception?", "How's your internet connection?" vs "How is your computer's internet connection?".

Aside from the psychological extension-of-self relationship that many people have with personal devices, does this type of reference/pattern of speaking/thinking occur in languages outside of English? Do people in other countries speak of/refer to their personal devices as themselves or as extensions of themselves?

I asked this in a language learning subreddit, but I'm curious about the experiences of a wider range of individuals.

The thing is that this piece of software has the ability to record what I'm doing and therefore not respect my privacy. It is also known to be a malware and has a rootkit.

Can anyone please give me any advice? I've read about sandboxing or vm-ing it, i've also read about installing it in another hard drive or something? I dont know what to do, and i want to know the best possible way to take this test without actually having to install this software.

Verifying Computer Science personal projects for UCs

I'm applying for transfer to UCs. For one of my extra curriculars and in my transfer PIQ I talk about creating small personal projects, starting when I was in high school. My question is how would I verify these if they decide to audit me? These were all small projects for random stuff I wanted to do, so the only form of verification I can think of is just sending them the code. Should I just not put this as an EC and remove it from my essay because I don't have many forms of verifying or is it such a small thing that they wouldn't ask much questions about if they do decide to audit that EC?
