    Excited!

      Good Luck mate. I had my maths exam last week and got 58/60 so I was pretty happy with it. I'll try and organise something with Rohan so that we can maybe catch up soon.

      I had mine last week as well, got 23/29. Not bad for literally 2 hours of work.

  5. > Gets an email from Apple saying there's unusual activity on my account

    > Realized the email address that email was sent to hasn't been tied to the Apple account in months.

     

    Feels like I'm the one baiting the phishers.

  6. So I have a little car amplifier I wanna use to run my (annoyingly) passive subwoofer on (its only a 160w amp but should be enough). Problem is its 12v DC and we use 120v AC for house power. So I thought why not get just get an inverter?!! Yeah..... I forgot that these amplifiers can draw anything from 5 amps to several hundred amps depending on its rating.... This amplifier would probably max out our 15 amp circuit breaker by itself... Having a led acid car battery (most likely 35amp) to run off inside would be ideal but highly unappreciated by my parents due to the toxins released from it and sealed batteries are quite expensive..... Any thoughts?

  7. So my new Noctua fan came super fast and wow the temperature differences in my system are insane. My GPU never has even seen 70C and my CPU hasn't seen 50C on a core....

     

    Not as quiet as the old fan when it worked but I think it just never moved air xD

      You know what, that's too much blue. Excessive orange is HELLA good...

  10. God I'm so glad I bought Synergy a while ago- makes this super easy to do with one keyboard and mouse.

      Agreed. I have been using Synergy for about 4 or 5 months now between my personal desktop and work laptop. Kind of cool to see Linus supporting it now with sponsor spots.

      @legacy99 I bought it over a year ago but hadn't used it much, now that I have my hackintosh setup now I will.

      I use it daily to go back and forth between my systems as a network engineer. Extremely useful. was recommended to me by a co worker instead of buying a physical KVM switch he said to give that a try. Have loved it ever since. 

  11. why don’t you have an avatar?

      Or is it *shelve*?

  12. This is what happens when I discover RGB MOV_0318.mp4

  13. I got back into playing an old game called HORDES

    its a flash zombie game played over sevral days, with 39 other players.

    try to survive as a group, manage resources, do expeditions to find them...

     

    its on a "daily action" style of thing, but its really diverse in what you can do.

     

    game was made like 8 ish years ago. at least xD

  14. I played a game at 200FPS for the first time since last week and it felt good.

      But no monitor can display that high...

  15. Tried Night Theme for a day or two.  Now I can't go back.  Changed back to Day Theme for a second and "Ow!  My eyes!"

      Sounds like a good idea.  Have an all black laptop with all black desktop themes, and call it the Black Mamba! ;):D

      I can assure you in real life these look blackish and grey. I even have a black monitor and TV.

      Glad you joined the dark side:P.

  16. So my Dad got a new laptop from his work. We did some investigating and it looks like it has some Skylake i7, 16 gigs of RAM, and a Quadro M1000M. 

     

    Specs look pretty decent...but what about that GPU?

     

    Anyone know anything? I was thinking we might play a few games together, now that he has a decent PC...but "1000" usually isn't a good number for Quadro...

      Quadro M1000M is on par with Radeon HD 6870 and GTX 470.  (Source: NotebookCheck)

      I've found notebook check to be pretty unreliable, but it's right -- the m1000m is trash: http://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-Quadro-1000M-vs-Nvidia-GTX-940M/m7836vsm28796

      Is it?    I'm super nervous after seeing how weird the new Alpha 5 looks...

       

      I miss the original versions...

  20. Our upcoming vr game, "The Ruins" is going to be one of the most innovative and best looking "roomscale only" games ever made. A complete adventure, epic story, and awesome puzzles solely using the roomscale abilities of the HTC Vive. Trailer and store page coming soon.

      The Todd Howard fandom is a weird one.

       

      Mostly because they actually hate the guy and are using his quotes ironically :P 

  22. So the month of march has been pretty rough for me mentally:
    >Great Grandmother is extremely sick
    >Uncle Passed less then a week ago
    >Car didn't want to start yesterday
    >Phone killed itself last night
    >I'm currently sick
    >And the rest of my family is trying to get rid of me it seems...

  25. I should make a YouTube channel for help and how to videos on how I have things set up or how I do things. I feel like it would/could save a lot of people a lot of time.

      Sounds cool ,  do send a link when you do , i'll subscribe to it if the contents good

      Thing is though, I don't think I would upload that much material. The plan would just be some nooks and crannies or helpful videos on how I have things setup or things that others have missed as well that I figure I could add to in detail. Kind of like references or archives or guides etc...
