    Windows 10 Speakers Coming From Monitor?

    Your monitor should have an option in the on-screen controls if windows won't disable it properly.

    for taking videos for 600$ is a camcorder better?

    Yeah the link was for the t3i but it got discontinued, amazon has one left in stock. EDIT: None in stock at the old sub $500 price anymore.

    http://www.amazon.com/Canon-Digital-18-55mm-discontinued-manufacturer/dp/B004J3V90Y/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1438264207&sr=8-1&keywords=t3i One left in stock, Also look at the T5i, it's $100 out of your pricerange but they make much better shooters than a camcorder. Camcorders are meant to be handheld or to have the person filming behind it, DSLR's are more application flexible.

    How to update 8.1 to 10?

    You can either wait for it to install automatically, or use http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

    Ah, haven't done any CPU only mining, but if you're doing BOINC or F@H, GPUs would do a lot better. I'm restricted to vCPU's due to Google's Cloud Platform, but if I had access to GPU's with this credit, I'd surely use them.

    Hey, guys. I've got around $96,000 of Google Cloud Platform credit that expires next April and there's no way in hell I'm going to be able to spend it all by then. I've only spent 4k since this past April and that was because I accidently left some huge instances on. I just started a 16 CPU server folding on the team and am going to see how efficient it is. If it proves to be efficient, I'll allocate 10 x 32 vCPU servers to fold continually, coming to 160 CPU's folding for cures. I can probably leave those running all the way to April, and as the deadline for my credit approaches, I'll throw more servers online until I burn through all the credit. Just wanted to let you know, you'll see my username 'ericvolp12' showing up on the team page pretty soon I hope. Great to be part of the team UPDATE: My PPD looks to be around 70k per server. I'll wait til tomorrow to make any decisive actions. I'm creating a cluster template now so if I want to, I can roll out an automated cluster of these servers to scale when I want them to. Is 70k PPD any good?

    No raw results for you but I can assure you that GPU mining is going to be better bang for your virtual buck.

    Milestone Update: Now in the top 100 for the team.
  10. Maplestory is not pay to win at all, everything you buy with real money or NX Cash is completely cosmetic.
  11. Hackers ruin every game, there's a reason Maplestory has had so many patches and HackShield has evolved so much in the past few years. I've not played the GMS version in a year or so since I moved to the UK, but from what I've seen, they keep more content coming out and it seems to be interesting. I just wish it still had the player base of 6 years ago, then it might be feasible to actually find groups for PQ's and other events. I'm pretty nostalgic of the days when patch notes were in .txt files and there were only 4 classes...
  12. What's with all the Nexon hate? I played Maplestory as a kid for 8 years and it was basically my childhood. Is there something I'm missing here?

    F@H Website Down?

    I'm getting an internal server error when trying to view user/group stats on the F@H website today. Anyone else experiencing this?

    Ah, well I can't do much tweaking since they're all virtualized. Hit 10 mil today btw

    I'm using Debian, why, is ubuntu better?
  16. Either you're joking, or you don't understand anything about web development and software stacks.
  17. Again, there have to be contracts signed and consent given by the creators to do that. This is a legal issue, not one of what Google is or isn't willing to do.
  18. There's a whole different platform that has to be constructed around how creators get paid when there aren't ads being served. Currently, the advertisers pay both google and the creator. Just blocking the ads would eliminate the revenue without passing on the subscription pricing to the creators. Creators also have to have new contracts for this kind of deal.

    That's great! Don't worry about how little it is, every bit counts. My servers are super inefficient at folding proteins but I'm still throwing almost everything I've got at it. Plus when I hit next April, all my credit will expire so I'll be back to the basics to build a folding rig

    utorrent Virus?

    Who still uses uTorrent? Why should they be making money off someone else's piracy via advertisements? That's more legit stealing than those shady characters who pirate. You should all be using deluge.

    what is the best virus scanner

    Tron Script is the best because it's essentially every virus scanner and AV together.
