  1. Past hour
  2. not overreacting, its in italy now also it makes sense to use a mask in confinded spaces (a plane, a train, a bus) which mask do I buy? prices are going high I can use an UV sanitizer machine so I can reuse it. I'll just put it inside the UV machine after every use and im good.
  3. Btw, I'm sorry for coming off so brashly. Just got angry at OPs demonstrated ignorance and then you come in from the more nuanced perspective (that I still disagree with) and I did a crap job keeping a level head. Regardless. Most "gaming soundcards" or otherwise suck at actually doing positional audio anyways, and that's assuming they have the right impression of where and how many speakers there even are. Its personal preference I suppose, but I would rather listen in stereo to gaming sound properly/accurately rendered than deal with positional data displayed with horrible distortion and frequency imbalance. Obviously in ideal world, both aspects are done properly. My other position is more that someone who cares and has the sound setup to notice the difference is going to be using a digital interface anyways (I doubt the coprocesser will make much of a lick of difference in a random 2.1 setup in crappy locations in a room, or with a terrible sound bar), and that digital interface can both carry and process any positional data regardless, so it makes almost 0 difference at all, unless for some reason the audio calcs are actually computationally expensive and this coprocessor actually makes a difference in that respect.
  4. I had to sleep early so didn't realy let it keep going for the second drive, however once i was back home a few mins ago, it happened again, i could still use my antivirus but that's it, it didn't find anything again same symptoms: cant connect to internet, launch browser, task manager stays frozen like on (system run time) it stays stuck at a certain timer and the whole system is all glitchy so i ran the chkdsk on the SSD which contains the system files as well as sfc /scannow, it didn' t detect anything, I'm gonna do it for my second drive now
  5. One of the bigger problems I find is that the "payoff" of "hope" isn't going to he until the end of the season, or perhaps even the end of the entire show. This is due to the serialized nature of the plot to drive the show. DS9 and ENT and to a degree VOY did this with multi-episode arcs, but generally each episode had a B-side plot that would provide you with some resolution. Picard seems more than happy to give you a weekly dose of misery and despair, without any of the "highs" the episodic nature of old Trek gave, even if we're just comparing it to a B-plot resolution in a DS9 arc. So even if it does have a somewhat positive ending, the general feeling of Picard will be unpleasant for most of the show. If you like that GoT style storytelling, them I suppose the show is perfect for you. I get enough daily misery from the news.
  6. Thanks a lot for the reply! I bought the Corsair RM (2019) 650W. It is not the RMx but it is listed as Tier A on the tier list.
  7. So I have an Acer Aspire 7 A717-72G-700J, Its using the gtx 1060 6gb. It comes with an Hdmi 2.0 port, a usb 3.0 and usb 3.1 c gen 1. I plan on hooking up a 34 ultra wide monitor with 144 or 100hz directly with the Hdmi 2.0 and that should be fine. My questions would be: Is it possible for Usb 3.1C gen 1 to display at 4k 60hz? Would i need a usb 3.1C to hdmi 2.0 adapter to run a second monitor at 4k 60hz? If i can't run 4k 60hz with the USB-C, could I run 1080p 60hz or would it only be able to run at 30hz.
  8. well I'm looking to use it as as a media box I figured android would be the easiest. main things I want it to do is stream hulu and work as a steam link, basic emulation would be nice as well. I wanted a thin client because the networking chips in them are always the best,( for the steam link) my next thought was to look at linux distros. hopefully something remote friendly
  9. Can anyone help me out or point me in the right direction as to where I can find specifically a aluminum t-splitter and ball valve? I want to set up so it can be easier to drain my loop but it is an aluminum loop and I don't want to cross material in the loop, thanks.
  10. Hi So, I have two Xeon CPUs, donated to me by someone who didn't want them anymore (both his mobo's had gone the way of a Verge PC build after a little while).... I have an X5649 and an X5645 I'm looking for something to put them in, the problem is that X58 is usually ridiculous in prices, so, what to do? Well, I've found this guy on a local re-sale platform, who sells a prebuild (Lenovo S20) with a W3520 in it. As far as I can tell, that's a 4-core, right? and my Xeons are 6-core with the same or higher clocks,,, so my question to you guys is, both chips are compatible with the X58 chipset, but, are they compatible with the same motherboards? Should I, with relative certainty be able to swap the W for one of my X's (no puns intended) without further worry? Also, while I have you, and you clearly know more than I do, and are even more interested in this old PC-building, if I buy a dual socket board and put my two X's into it, would they be able to run? I mean, they're so close on every count it's almost the same, but not quite... do you reckon?
  11. so zoe ate a spider yesterday. reorganizing with a puppy is fun.
  12. While each country/state is going to be a tiny bit different, typically (in NA anyways) you're never required to take a course, but insurance rates will usually be reduced if you've taken a class. In Ontario, you can take your road tests faster if you've completed a driving course (after 8 months vs 12 months), on top of the insurance benefits. The length of a course isn't magically going to make you skilled or experienced driver. I never took a course when I was younger, and my insurance was never egregiously higher than my friends. Lots of other things go into insurance rates so it's not make or break. If you're uncomfortable behind the wheel and would like some specific instruction that will help with your road test, a course isn't bad, but I would definitely look for some other options in terms of cost.
  13. i mean i have a g933 that can connect with usb reciever, and a 3.5mm cable, if i use the 3.5 (onboard mobo soundcard asus z390 elite) will I have better location sound?
  14. Lookup the maneuverability for Ohio residents, tell me which one you think is worse. Parallel parking or Maneuverability.
  15. Yes, Windows does rely on those for virtio-scsi as well.
  16. It’s possible I think that neither emperor has any clothes. You’re talking about multiple speaker room audio. There are still only two ears. My suspicion is that if 3daudio is even possible it would have to be headphone only as room shape and speaker placement is going to change. Lots of people are going to talk a lot and there is going to be a lot of flying BS. That BS would be emanating from the audiophile crowd is a given because so much has Emanated from that direction in the past. There may be just as much emanating from the “gaming audio” crowd though. We shall see what we shall see.
  17. I already have a 1TB HDD but maybe a 256GB. thanks anyway
  18. The M545 does look like a compelling option I'll keep it in mind
  19. Of course you can make more than minimum wage. It depends entirely on what kind of job you're looking at. Low-qualification jobs at retailers will of course not be especially profitable, but you can make a very good amount of money with programming and tech-related jobs in general.
  20. I know, I'm disagreeing it is the best OS for a NAS.
  21. what is better? usb or pcie?
  22. I'm looking at reviews it isn't. I'm agreeing that 4k is overkill but if they want to spend that much give them nice stuff. I've got a smaller sized game collection of about 100-125 games and it is easily coming up on 3TB. to me the higher end drives aren't about slightly better performance, it is long term support and reliability. I wouldn't put in any of the new gen 4 drives. there are use cases but he hasn't listed any
  23. You can apply this to many, many, many things that I decide to branch out and explore. My knowledge is like a tree where all the open air between the branches is everything I don't know. Which if you can imagine your average tree there's a lot more air than their are branches. Personally I would find something like this useful for when running TimeShift. Does Windows have a driver for it or does it still rely on the virtio drivers? Unrelated. Talking to the LG author we've gotten the Clipboard working enabling copy/paste between the two OS's. Coincidentally the fix for the clipboard also fixes the scroll wheel problem.
  24. Ryzen 7 3700X with it's stock cooler X570 asus prime pro motherboard 16gb of vengean pro rgb 3000mhz(2x8gb stick) rx580 asus strix 850watt corasair RMx power supply and 250gb 2.5 laptop hard drive (7200rpm) i use to have an old graphic card rv 370 and my PC starts to freeze then shutdown(all the fans stops spining and. the lights turn off and power on again ) so I bought the RX 580 all the parts are brand new except the hard drive
  25. I'm assuming you're from the US since this wouldn't even be a decision you'd be able to make in most of Europe. There isn't really a lot of learning involved with driving an automatic car, so I suppose it doesn't make a ton of sense for you to go to a driving school to learn how to operate the car in general. That being said, I don't think that the lessons will do any harm, and getting your training for just 360 USD is crazy cheap as well. To give you a bit of perspective: Getting your driver's license in Germany involves at least 1500€, sometimes up to 3000€ depending on your driving school and location. That includes at least 12 mandatory driving lessons plus (usually) a few additional ones to iron out mistakes. I still wouldn't blame you for not taking them. If it's not legally required and you feel like you're able to control the car just fine, then it's really just about the laws and rules of the road. You're not going to learn how to drive properly by the time you're getting your license either way - being a good driver requires a lot of practice and experience. I'd just say be reasonable and honest with yourself. Taking lessons isn't shameful and if you're not feeling confident in front of the steering wheel yet, it's the responsible decision to make.
