    Not able to register on LTT forum with PIA enabled

    Could be worse. You should check the "LTT Official" section. Almost every single thread there is spam for some electronics product, all started by the same couple of spammers.

    Are SSDs getting WORSE??

    I'll wait for Luke to start blinking S.O.S. during the WAN show then.

    Are SSDs getting WORSE??

    That's the kind of testing that Luke used to do for a while. Stuff like this would be right up his alley. Looking at the "videos" tab on the LTT Youtube channel, In the past 2 months ALL that I see is basically advertisements, sponsored reviews and the occasional funny/foolish stuff (like the DIY Lithium battery, and even that one is basically a product review). But really informative videos that were made for that exact purpose? That's a loooooong time ago. Nowadays it's a tiny bit of info here and there buried somewhere in a 10-15 minute advertisement. Ignoring the gaming on Linux stuff and the iMac Pro debacle due to them being too niche, the first properly informative video I find is "Is Your Gaming Rig Being Bottlenecked?" That's August 5th. The next one I see is the conclusion of the airflow experiment. That's February 27th. I still watch the occasional LTT video (1-2 vids per week) and will always watch the WAN show (usually live). But 3-4 years ago I used to watch almost every single video they released. Maybe it's also because I'm not getting any younger while LMG is clearly targeting an audience that is. You can't please everyone, I'm well aware of that. The clickbait was a real turn-off and I did voice my opinion loud and clear on that BITD, so I'll not bring all that up again. However I will point out that it's only getting worse with these outright misleading titles. EDIT : looking at the Videos page, I see that the title of this video has changed to "How SSD Technology Keeps Getting WORSE! - Intel 660p". That's a lot better. Personally I'd go with "Does new SSD Technology really affect performance? - Intel 660p", but that's just me.

    Holy Mole-y - Metric to redefine 4 units of measurement

    No idea where to find period specs on pre-war cars, I was actually referring to modern ones : I'll take the Renault Kangoo as a French example. https://www.renault.com.au/vehicles/commercial/kangoo/kangoo/features-specifications I'd love to include Volvo, but they work with e-brochures that they send to your mail address. On to the Netherlands then. Donkervoort also lists dimensions in mm http://www.donkervoort.com/en/cars/donkervoort-d8-gto-40/ The UK, taking the F-type as an example. https://www.jaguar.com/jaguar-range/f-type/specifications/index.html etc etc.

    German keyboard to English?

    Yes, if you change the language in the settings the OS will think it's an English keyboard.

    German keyboard to English?

    You won't be able to swap the keys over. Firstly you'll break them, secondly the uppercase vs lowercase symbols and special characters may not be on the same key in the different layouts. You'll have to replace the entire keyboard, which on a Macbook is a costly part that on some models (for example the generation where the keys stop working after a couple of months) is riveted to the palmrest in 50 or so places.

    Holy Mole-y - Metric to redefine 4 units of measurement

    In Europe dimensions of cars and motorcycles usually are also listed in mm in the spec sheets.

    Holy Mole-y - Metric to redefine 4 units of measurement

    It's more fun when you're in Europe. The signs usually only have numbers here and my speedometer has a MPH scale, so as long as I don't go more than 1.6 times the speed limit I always argue that I wasn't speeding. The judge last time didn't think it was funny though. Anyway ...

    How much are Youtubers' PCs actually worth?

    If the Winnie the Pooh cartoons taught me anything, it's that bears love honey. They're probably digging a tunnel right now ...

    Windows 10 Pro Licenses Are Being Downgraded To Home

    Easy solution: Block Windows 10 users whenever they try to access the forum.

    Spotify on Nokia 3310

    I assume you're referring to the modern 3310, not the real one. The phone has a 2.5G connection, so good luck streaming anything on that. It doesn't do apps either. I am pretty sure that your only option regarding music is to put .mp3 files on a microSD card and use the built-in music player.

    Windows 10 Pro Licenses Are Being Downgraded To Home

    Win10 sends a lot of data home. But that's where the similarities between Win10 and spyware end. Spyware tends to be well supported by its developer. Its code is compact and efficient. It runs perfectly fine on most systems. It also usually becomes better and more sophisticated over time.
