  1. Can I use LIFX bulbs with a dimmer switch?

    They might get damaged by a non 100% dim actually. I'd either tape the knob at 100% or replace them with standard binary light switches.
  2. Minecraft lags with 1080Ti/8600K @ 5.1GHZ

    My 1080Ti/8086K @5.2ghz does the same thing. Welcome to minecraft, about as poorly optimized as possible. Try upping the ram from 1GB to 4GB, this helped a bit for me. https://www.techadvisor.co.uk/how-to/game/allocate-more-ram-minecraft-3682526/
  3. Amazing cooling solution, asus




    Honestly through its overkill


    A slightly larger plate and it could easily run fanless, it will do basic tasks with no heatsink at all

      Quite the opposite. Booting up windows, it doesn't even get warm to the touch. And it does this fanless.

      I just mean in terms of productivity performance. Not how much heat it actually generates. If it doesn't get very warm if at all I'd take it that it's only designed for light duty use. Don't expect to be doing any serious rendering, gaming, benchmarking, etc because the CPU would be a real bottleneck.

      Oh definitely not. Its a basic web browsing machine

  4. Honestly it'd probably still work if you intentionally filled the entire socket with paste.
  5. This craptop survived a bath in... well... a bathtub. After cleaning the board and running a bodgewire for the LCD backlight, she actually freaking works again.



    Man I love this job

  6. I don't have a problem what are you talking about


    1. Ryan_Vickers


      no, you just have a program that has a problem

    2. 8uhbbhu8


      That's it? I expected better Yoshi!

      My cache clears after a week...

  7. But a "professional" marketed OS still does it. While you can disable stuff, you shouldn't have to. Win10 pro costs 200$ on their site. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/windows-10-pro/df77x4d43rkt/48DN A 200$ operating system shouldn't be this awful
  8. Its the forced updates, ads, self installing bloat, etc that should already have been a lawsuit. My fucking zip manager got changed to winzip from 7zip as it downloaded, installed, and set defaults to winzip the day I put a fresh copy of windows 10 on my desktop. A fresh install will download and install over 1GB of bloatware/crap after doing nothing but sitting there after doing the initial setup. Its completely unacceptable. I'm using enterprise LTSB now for this very reason.
  9. iPad with USB-C??

    Shockingly, this is already a thing https://www.apple.com/shop/product/MJYT2AM/A/lightning-to-sd-card-camera-reader
  10. EA Stands up....for Gambling

    We'd manage an overflow in the decimal system...
  11. Can I remove it? Because its really stick

    They are annoyingly tricky little buggers to remove, Try bending it to one side or the other while pulling
  12. Mmmm grilled cake.

      Oh, that brings me back...

      Though I don't know if I should be happy about it or not...


      But DOS 6.x was way better because you can make your own start menu...

    2. iamdarkyoshi


      My single remaining working disk and desktop drive are on their last legs...



      DOS 5.0 had a single disk version, which worked after creating it on my laptop

  14. So I changed my phone's UI scale to a fairly insane level, which I'm actually liking. I get tons more space for stuff since everything's smaller.


    My remote app looks hilarious though

      when you have 100% scaling on a 4k monitor

    2. iamdarkyoshi


      Thats comfortable for me as well, tried it at work

  15. Does iOS have advanced goat recognition technology as well?

      Seems like all the research went into the right places.

      Boss- What have you worked on for the last 8 months and had a 10000000$ budget for?

      Worker 1- Android can now detect if the user is a goat.

      Boss- What?

      Worker 1- IS USER A GOAT?

      Boss- Money well spent.

    2. WhisperingKnickers


      It is this kind of innovation that really gives me hope for the future. It is bad enough to have to worry about AI taking over the world but AI and goats? No way. I'm glad that this should be a big set back to the goatly schemes.

      Unfortunately those responsible for developing the GoatDetect API were sacked shortly after the whole team blew $5,000 of the corporate credit card on Goat Simulator.
