In few weeks, I'll get a magnetic implant in my finger. I know the magnet is not enough powerfull to wipe a HDD. Is the magnet dangerous for the others components of a computer ?
ok, well first question: Why the fuck are you getting a magnet implanted?
some people just have downright autism
No. Most HDDs I'm pretty sure have some form of magnetic protection.
Also I've heard about the magnets in the fingers.
It sounds cool but it'll be a pain in the ass when your dealing with shit like screws and small pieces of metal
Fuck you're dense.
One anon said;
"It really depends on how powerful the magnet is"
When it was clearly stated by OP that it's not powerful enough.
Adding to that, I then said to him, not you (moron) that IF it were powerful enough to wipe an HDD, it would be a problem before you even got near one.
Fucking follow the conversation, autist. 6/10, mouthbreather.
If your goal is to destroy people's computers using a hidden magnet in your finger. Why not just wear thin gloves with magnets in the finger tips instead of being captain autism?
Why are you getting magnets implanted in your hands? It's a waste of money, trying to show off to your friends that you have super powers.
>will a magnet in my finger can damage my computer if i open it?
Do you have any idea how powerful of a magnet you would need to do that?
Not even MRIs rip these things out of people's fingers.
Telling someone with this implant "you better hope nobody fucks with you with a magnet big enough to rip that out of your finger" is like going up to somebody with pierced ears and telling them they better hope nobody crashes the moon into their head. It's absolutely ridiculous and not something you'd ever need to worry about with or without the implant.
Please, read the thread (protip : >>47135507 )
This thread just goes to show yet again how much of /g/ is made up of total luddites.
Don't you fags some rally to be at to protest the latest technology at some research lab somewhere? Or are you all too busy going out and collecting wood for your stoves?
Back in the 50's 60's and 70's computers used magnetic core memory. CPU registers were a grid of ferrite beads magnetized in different directions to represent 1s and 0s and it didn't take a very strong magnet to flip them. Pop culture hasn't really caught up yet, so you still see fictional computers and robots going crazy if you stick a magnet on them.
/g/ is the new /v/. Many of the anons of /g/ are only interested by the latest stupid graphic Nvidia card.
I love the answers like >>47135921 because THIS is the passion for the technology. The only reason why i stay here.
How fucking nuts do you have to be to stand near that when tossing metallic things into it? Do you know how easily you can turn it off at the wrong second and a fucking wrench comes flying at you at insane speeds?
Just why not? It's like a "New sense", a different and new way to discover things. I can't resist to this possibility. I know it's extreme for most people but i'm not scared by the extremes modifications
It's not that I'm strictly against the OP being a retard, it's just that implanting magnets in your fucking fingers bears no significant advantage over not doing it (at the time). It's not technology, it's the same as piercing your member and hanging a chain to it from your eyebrow. Plus I agree with the >>47135412 reasoning. You wouldn't want to add a bioengineered cunt to the back of your head without researching for possible downsides, would you?
Really... The real basic question is >>47135702 and I have done lots of search on this subject.
As i said, i know that it can't damage hdd, i didn't know for the others components. So i asked... just for known the answer. It will not change my life but now, i know.
"Physical Memory" just means RAM. It's not a very good name since all memory exists on a physical medium. What happened is people started writing OSs so that memory that should go to RAM chips is stored on the harddrive. This was "virtual RAM", as in RAM that wasn't real in a sense. This lead to RAM that was really stored on RAM chips being called "Physical RAM"
In the present we have CPU register memory and RAM as separate parts of computer architecture. That didn't really exist yet in the days of magnetic core memory.
What guys, where, what scanner and what implants?
You still haven't told us why you want this done, short of 'muh magic fingers', or is that the only reason you're risking infection and poisoned blood?
Maybe you didn't read all the thread.. >>47136146
Fear of infection is ridiculous. You can have with with a little cut on your skin.
About the poisoned blood, the Magnet is surrounded by a biocompatible film (i'm not sure of the english word but the French is "parylene") used in medical implants.
>Cybernetics for the Masses
What you need to do is:
>smallest neodymium magnets from Amazon,they are in form of disks
>get hot glue
>cover them with hot glue
>Get 5mm in diameter needle
And you are done.Remember to disinfect the place where you will be putting the magnet with betadine,and be sure that the needle and the plastic syringe that you will be using is sterile.
All of this will cost 20-20$ tops,and doing it in a professional studio costs from $100 up to $200.
>magnet in your finger
>extremely powerful electromagnet becomes attatched
>try to pull hand away
>skin completely rips off
My fingers are hurting just thinking about it.
Watch the video smartass.Other people have one it before me thats how I know is save.
>MUH RETRDED POEPLE
if its possible to do it safe why not.Also you are just shitposing at this point unless you have legitimate reasons why anyone shouldnt be doing and differs from "Y WOULD YOU DO DIS ;_:"" you can fuck off
There is lots of articles on the Web, just look at them. This one is pretty good : http://gizmodo.com/5895555/i-have-a-magnet-implant-in-my-finger
I found around 50 testimonials (in French) of guys saying it works great
Uhm. I'm OP. What have i said to enrage you ? I just said that glue is maybe not the better solution to protect your body from the neodynium's toxicity
>OP: hey bro i found that disk you were looking for
>OP in a few years
>"I'll show those neckbeards"
>"I'LL SHOW THEM ALL!"
to be fair it would also happen to people with metal in their bodies for medical reasons
but yeah I agree it's cool and a conversation piece but until it's easy as fuck to revert it I'm not getting near it
I've had one for two years. the only technology I can think of that I haven't touched in the last two years are floppies and derivatives, and vhs/casette tapes.
You should be fine.
now that I think about it though, there has been one thing that has annoyed the shit out of me about these magnets. My phone.
For some reason it has a little magnet sensor in it, and whenever my hand gets near it, the phone shuts off. Really fucking annoying.
Pretty sure it's just silicone
Okay, so after a little research, I've gathered that people implant magnets because they think it'll give them a "sixth sense" of some sort, is that kinda correct?
I've got to say I think this is bullshit. Hopefully OP gets sepsis so the gene pool is purged a little.
I read many many times people said that is true. Even a bodmodder who has one in the back of is hand (between two fingers) and who said that this sense looks like bullshit. He put a new magnet in his finger and was surprised : he can feel magnetic fields around his speakers and lots of objects.
Nobody who has tested said it's a fake. But the better way to know is to test it by yourself. I belive it's true and i'll test it. It's reversible so why not?
Why wouldn't it work? Small magnets wiggle subtly when exposed to magnetic fields, and you're sticking one right around some of the most sensitive touch nerve endings in your body.
I haven't tried it and don't particularly want to chop open my finger, but I have gotten some amount of "magnet sense" temporarily by krazy gluing a small magnet to a fingertip. It was pretty cool and I expect it would be more sensitive inside your fingertip than stuck to the outside.
>Is the magnet dangerous for the others components of a computer ?
Only if you're working with floppy disks and other magnetic stuff like cassette tapes.
Your magnet can might trigger magnetic sensors that could be used in certain portable devices.
Only useful thing posted in this entire thread.
You may be surprised at how much ferrous crap you'll have sticking to your magnet.
There's a lot of finely divided iron/nickel/cobalt/alloys floating around and you may find it difficult to remove them once they've lodged in your skin.
Carry example magnet around with you and test on library technology or wallmart demo technology
Also rub that example magnet around everywhere your hands go because you will end up finding all kinds of sand and little shards and dust and shit that turns out to be ferrous
I'm all for augmentation, but if you don't know what your doing, then don't fucking do it. Magnetic implants could fuck up in a variety of ways, including: shattering of the magnet, infection, spontaneous implant migration, implant rejection. If you don't know how to handle these things, then get the idea of implants out of your oxygen-starved brain.
