Thinkpad T14 (AMD) - RAM Upgrade!
Thinkpad T14 (AMD) already has 16GB DDR4-3200 RAM (soldered), but I added 16GB more just 'cos I could.
'Chew's first time upgrading laptop hardware. It's a simple enough process with the Thinkpad T14, but I was still stupid nervous. More nervous than my first time building a PC, lol.
Disassembly & UpgradeSpoiler
Thinkpad T14 (AMD) - Underside
SD Card Slot Removal
Unsure if this was a necessary step or not, but the two guides I was blindly following pointed out this step.
Thinkpad T14 (AMD) Disassembly - Screws
Screws aren't removable and stay put in the the laptop's bottom case(?).
Thinkpad T14 (AMD) Disassembly - Bottom Case Removal
Janky solution. Hey, it works.
(Use a random spare card or discontinued credit card -- something you wouldn't mind accidentally breaking.)
I don't do electronic repair/upgrades often enough to justify a $5 plastic spudger purchase...

Thinkpad T14 (AMD) Internals
Everything is so... exposed.
Blanking out stuff probably wasn't necessary, IDK, erring on the side of caution.
Empty RAM slot in smack-dab in the middle of the laptop.
Oooh, it's just like installing an M.2 SSD.
Angle. Push. Click.
Thinkpad T14 (AMD) - RAM Installed
OK, DONE, CLOSE IT UP NOW SO I DON'T SCREW UP ANYTHING ELSE.
So many sweat marks (dun worry, I cleaned them off). 'CHEW WAS SUPER NERVOUS OKAY.
I was cringing the entire time I squished the bottom case back on the laptop.
HWiNFO64 System Summary
A lil' elbow grease and a cool $65 later, laptop has 32 GB total RAM!
...My palms are still sweaty.
Bored. Trying out Warframe. If Steam will stop taking its time allocating disk space and download it already. We'll see if I enjoy it. I love sci-fi shooters, but I quit Apex because I don't like battle royale anymore, and I'm getting tired of Titanfall 2 being the only shooter game I play.
Alright... let's try for tl;dr this time lol. I tired to sum up creating a new site with Docker and Ghost in a quick status update. 634 words later I realized I went on too long. Either way, playing around with containers on a rainy day has been a ton of run and produced some awesome results.
It's also been a lot cheaper than playing with new hardware!
If you're going to start your own blog or some form of longer form content publishing, I highly recommend Ghost over Wordpress.
I might have posted this before, but this seems very relevant right now:Spoiler
Don't you love it when you setup things just the way you wanted then everything starts crashing out of control and you need physical access but dont have it. I'm super pissed because this all happened because my dad decided it was OK to unplug ALL the power plugs in MY HOUSE. Now I am halfway across the country my home server is having HDDs issues because it was powered off during write action. Desktop is straight up rejecting my RDP connection despite having an active network connection (probably booting into recovery mode, no active ports). Server (OrangePI Zero) is shitting itself, because apperantly all of a sudden it cannot power a second USB harddrive. I dont care who you are, if I tell you to NOT DO SOMETHING, DON'T FUCKING DO IT. Now I gotta send my house keys to a friend, describe him what to do. Do you want to know another super thoughtful thing my dad did? He drove all the way from my house (5 hour drive, 550kms) to here DESPITE being suspected of having COVID19. My anger is through the roof.
Simply, I have a flat that I am renting from my uncle (and occasionally work for him). Since I only do translation work Infront of a computer since covid began, I can work anywhere with internet. He is a MD and decided it was time to get a certificate on some medical operation called ERCP (he is 53 and been a MD for 28 years) so he came to my place. I decided to leave him the fuck be and drove back to my parents place. 3 weeks later this shit happens.
@LeventI think the best thing to do in this situation is make sure nothing is damaged and make it clear to anyone who stays in your house that things shouldn't be unplugged for any reason--it's like how a 1-hour power outage at a fab recently caused a huge loss in supply. Sorry about what happened.

@Letgomyleghoe Hmm, You're right, it's not an exact replica.
I guess in order to "balance" it they added extra armour to the front.
yup, the m6 was an absolute terrible hull, to heavy (transmission breakage), terrible transmission in the first place, hard to service engine, lacking armor, those bazooka plates made it an absolute nightmare to service the tracks, and rather cramped crew conditions. the m6a1 is probably 2x worse than the m6a2e1, because 'MURICA thought it was a a great idea to mount a rather useless 37mm in the turret, which decreased reload speed, and crew condition.
It's fun to look at and use in games though!Spoiler
but fuckk america, why invest in some shit heavy tank, that never even got used, instead of just putting more time into the m4 and getting the jumbo out earlier! If you need the 76mm, and a 37mm, fucking strap a 76 on the turret and replace the mg port with the 37mm.
HI SPEAK SPANISH BUT I WANT ADVICE I HAVE A ZOTAC P106-90 3GB AND I DON'T KNOW HOW TO MAKE IT WORK I HAVE SEEN TUTORIALS BUT NOTHING ..
MY WHATSAPP +51925416760
I HAVE AN R7 250 FOR VIDEO OUTPUT
AND I WANT THE P106-90 TO RENDER THE GAMES
TRY AN ATHLON 200GE
BUT NOTHING KEEPS GOING OUT CODE 43
I THINK IT MAY BE SOMETHING FROM BIOS
SAME BUS CONTROLLER SM
AND THE PCI MEMORY CONTROLLER
They come out without recognizing me
Is it placebo or ...?
I used to be able to play games at a choppy 7 fps and be fine and not even notice it.
After using PC with good parts for like 5~ years maybe.... now I can get sick from even watching a YouTube video with choppy video.
is it a placebo that "if it's not smoothe I should feeel sick" or is that like a real thing ?
made a master where all my playlist and liked tracks are there along with other playlists
uhh that's a lot
For you PSU list fanboys:
350W 12V China edition
please note the attention to detail which is just every where from the glass fuse on the bottom right to the exhaust fan in the top left corner.
for comparison 350 W 36V MeanBad:
I still like Delta PSUs more then MeanBad:
1. Documentation (mechanical drawing, step, dxf). They are freely available like they should. Dimensions and mounting positions aren't a trade secret.
2. You don't need to request the necessary documents from a support which never responds. How should I use a product for which I don't have any mechanical drawings?
3. the Delta PSU has the max screw penetration length engraved on the back reducing the chance of a accident and a little paper telling you some details. Mean Well on the hand has better label on the PSU and in large letters on packaging what your model you have (which doesn't matter if your distributor packs it's in the usual packaging with there sticker on it. It is a shame that none of them have a datecode on them.
4. they made a cutout for the voltage selection switch! MeanBad just placed it behind the grill .... forcing me to stick something into the power supply ... e.g. a screw driverSpoiler
the warning on the meanbad is on the top so it is there
From a technical point of view both of these PSUs are (very) basic low wattage (150W & 100W) PSUs with a horrible power factor ( e.g. 0.45 for the MeanWell which means there is approx. a equal amount of reactive power I don't need to pay )
