The Core i9 notebook conundrum

Well, that’s not so great.   You might have heard that Apple recently refreshed the MacBook Pros with the new 8th-generation Intel Coffee Lake CPUs, including the top-of-the-line Core i9 8950HK. And you may have also heard that the very same configuration generates so much heat to the point where the MacBook’s chassis and cooling system could simply not handle and resulted in the CPU being unable to maintain base clocks. Obviously, this is quite a big issue and it really begs the quest

Eleven different ways to disable Windows Update in Windows 10 (updated March 2019)

A highly important aspect of owning property, such as your computer hardware, the data on it as well as any data it generates, your Windows operating system, and other software you've purchased, is exclusively being the person that has the authority to make decisions over it, and being able to make the decisions that you know are the best for your situation.   As the European Union and Australia's top courts have ruled, and as even the US Supreme Court has indirectly supported, you own

Koala Gene Promises Chlamydia Treatment

Koala Gene Promises Chlamydia Treatment   So a lot of you may have seen the news recently on a group of Australian scientists decoding the genome of the Koalas, which is a fairly large 26,000 genes. To put that in perspective Homo Sapiens has around 28,000 genes and one of the most studies model organisms, which are organisms we use instead of humans, is Bakers Yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisae) has around 5300 to 5400 genes. I should probably add to this, and if you are looking at this b

Is It Time for Me to Drop Amazon?!

Just looked at my new shift at Amazon, and am thinking about applying to either Lowe's or Home Depot for a better shift (with possibly better pay). This would be nice, since those companies might be more flexible with shift hours than Amazon, and that would definitely help with being able to keep a job during the school year. I really would like to have stable income during the year, and leaving Amazon would kinda kill that. If I could get a higher hourly rate from a different company (higher th

Doing circuits and landings...

Today, I was able to fly in both the morning and afternoon.    Our morning flight was delayed by an hour due to fog/mist however it did clear and thus we were able to fly. We did 7 circuits however they were all low passes. Circuits were suprsingly less demanding that I had expected.    In the afternoon flight, I did my first landing! We did 3 touch n go before we exited the circuit to go over what to do in an engine failure. We then came back to do a shortfield landing.

It's been a while

So, it's been a while since I posted, I am still going to the gym, eating healthy and still feeling positive about myself! I went to my first class on Sunday, it was supposed to be 1 hour but I only lasted 30 mins, I knackered myself out and it has hurt for a couple of days, but I'm still continuing! No pain No Gain as they say. I will have my first weight check since starting on Thursday I will keep you all posted   Please comment if you like my blog posts or if you have any suggesti

First time taking off...

Hehe, I did the take off first time today! (did it for the second flight as well). First time was on a grass strip and the second time was on tarmac. To be honest, taking off on grass was probably easier as although its more bumpy and whatnot, it requires a lot less tweaking for it to go straight, meaning when you first select full-thrust for take off, you don't even have to kick the rudder right. Deliberately stalled today as well. Went over how to recover from a clean stall without using the e

What's occurred so far...

So what's occurred so far?  First day (11th June): Due to bad weather, first lesson was cancelled. The second lesson became how to do the pre-flight checks.  12th June: Weather was still a little nasty so my instructor did ground school on "the effects of control" (Note: she technically isn't supposed to do ground school with meh as its an "extra").  For the second lesson, the weather finally cleared up enough for me to do my familiarisation flight.  Today wa

[Random quick blog] What does Installing/Uninstalling a application really mean?

When you install an application using some install process, you'd think a lot is going on in the background aside from copying files to the install location. But for the most part, that's all it's really doing. Depending on how the application was designed and programmed, it'll be looking for files or libraries in certain places. So if said files or libraries don't already exist, the installer is making sure they get put in the right place. The only other thing that happens is to write some entr

Why multi-video card setups can't combine VRAM

( I need a name for blog posts like these, but all the good ones are taken )   While I don't think it's often brought up, an idea might come about that when using multiple video cards, such as in SLI or Crossfire, their VRAM combines. So if you have two 8GB cards, you effectively get the same thing as a 16GB card. However, this isn't the case. You might be asking... but why? If these setups combine GPU power, how come VRAM doesn't combine?   On a broader view, the video cards

The GeForce Partner Program is dead....but the damage is done

It’s official. NVIDIA’s GeForce Partner Program has been killed off by NVIDIA after weeks of controversy surrounding the potential implications, not helped by the news that ASUS launched the AREZ line as their new home for formerly RoG-branded products which utilized Radeon GPUs.   In a blog post, NVIDIA had the following to say; Source: https://blogs.nvidia.com/blog/2018/05/04/gpp/   If you’re like some of the other guys on here, you may be cringing a bit at the state

When something seemingly designed well still has a problem.

With yet another security bug found on processors, one has to think how anyone would've let this through for this long. People would like to think there's incompetent engineering out there and while sure, they exist, what people also don't see are the designs that even you would agree with all of the knowledge and experience in the world that seems sound without experiencing it in the real world. So I have an example of such. This one I love to share, partly because pride (I was a junior develop

LG Mobile doesn't seem to be interested in selling phones if it repeats the V30’s launch

If you've been following the news section of the LTT Forums, you would've noticed that the LG G7 was launched. And it does look like a solid, if slightly underwhelming device. But there's one issue; lack of information on availability.    No, see, this is a problem that's been obvious over the past few LG devices. The G5 took a long while to reach the market and some of its modules ended up not making it to North America, the V20 suffered from lack of availability info nearly a month a

Which is better for gaming: Windows 7 or Windows 10? A comparison of benefits.

My experience while dual-booting both Windows 7 and Windows 10 is that more games run on Windows 7, and games run better on Windows 7.   1. Windows 10 has DirectX 12, but Windows 7 has Vulkan, which does the same thing as DirectX 12. And Vulkan seems to be the favourite between the two by current developers, due to its cross-platform abilities and open-source nature. The only games that you'll miss out on by not having Windows 10 and DirectX12 are Microsoft exclusive games (as Microsof

About that Task Manager CPU utilization "being wrong" (and about idling)

Note: I posted this as a status update, but it got long enough that I wanted to preserve it as a blog.   This popped up in my news feed: Netflix's senior software architect says Windows' CPU utilization meter is wrong. He has some good points in that it's not measuring the time a thread is actually doing useful work, rather than waiting on something, like data from RAM. Which he also points out that there is a gap in performance between RAM and CPU, but that's been a known problem for
