  1. Some full on whack jobs on this forum like.... 

  2. Anyone know why the forum was offline?

      Good strong passwords and 2FA go a long way.  And if you notice that it's happening after all, you put a timer on your modem to cut off all internet access during your sleep hours.

  5. So the S10 or Note10 are rumored to have no jack. 

     

    Kind of early days but if true, I wouldn't be surprised but no less disappointed

      Guess I'll wait for the official announcement and get ready to buy an S9+ then.

      Just started a thread about it in General.  Hopefully we'll know more soon.

  7. Power rate raised from 8 cent a KWH to 10.5 or so. No notification nothin for a huge price hike.

      Captain Chaos

      If it makes you feel any better, I pay 18 cents ... to my provider.  Then there's the network fees from the distributor etc. 

      By the time all is said and done, we're talking around 40 cents per KWh.  Makes you think twice about leaving your PC on overnight.

  8. Despite thinking I knew what Uni I wanted to go to I'm starting to think of other choices to potentially get away from a lot of distractions. Being home is helpful but I notice it's a big thing holding me back as well. Me having nearly 4 years worth of credits for college, a degree and an alright GPA by time I graduate will help a ton potentially saving some money and edging my way in. 
    Time for some more research. 
    Might as well ask for some help while I'm here, location doesn't mean anything to me to an extent but price kind of does. Don't want to be $200,000 in debt by time I graduate but don't be super lenient, might qualify for a few scholarships. What is big is having the opportunity to have internships be apart of the degree. University near me is a 4 1/2 dual major program that requires a full year of paid internship to get your degree but again want to try and be out of state and potentially country. Live in Ohio to give an idea of length.
    EDIT: I'll also have an associate of Electronic Engineering and anywhere from 3-6 certifications in basic networking, hardware diagnosis, maybe a few in a basic coding language and other "computer science and electronic engineering" certs.

      Have you considered doing uni abroad?  All costs combined will likely be quite a bit cheaper than the tuition alone would be in the US. 

      Seeing as you're a native English speaker the UK would be a logical place to look into first, but there are other universities in Europe that do at least part of their classes in English.

  9. In addition to slowly succumbing to general social media absence, I have also decided to end my Floatplane subscription. Way too much happening in life so a Floatplane subscription is not worth my money at this moment in my life.

    I will have been a Pilot from June 2018 until July 2018, provided my cancellation email goes through before the automated transaction doesn't beat it.

     

    It was nice being a pilot, but I no longer have the time to watch early-access videos, at least I'll be saving myself the $3 every month from now on.

      People are just getting tired of the whole social media thing, Cactus. 

      I never bought into it in the first place, thankfully.

  11. so.. a belgian political party got under some serious fire when they put an ultra-orthodox jew on their voting list, because for religious reasons he doesnt shake womens' hands, out of "respect" for women.

     

    i have a suggestion, we should pass a law that dictates when a politician lacks some very basic principles like treating women equally, they get shot on sight. you cant handle belgium's extremely complex political situation if you cannot compute the difference between shaking a woman's hand and cheating on your wife.

    1. Captain Chaos

      Captain Chaos

      Not just the politician lacking the principles, but also the ones that started this whole mess.  This whole thing was clearly a very short-sighted attempt to get the entire Jewish community in Antwerp to vote for CD&V so that Peeters would stand a chance against our current major.

      Hell, even the Jewish community thought it was a bad idea.

  12. Confirmed, the iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X have superior battery life than that of the Samsung Galaxy S9 despite the S9 having almost 1,000mAh more.

      True that, @DrMacintosh.  I don't use most of the functionality of mine, and my ROM is significantly leaner than the bloated stock one that my S7 came with.

       

      That being said, Android has always been a resource-hungry and hard to optimize OS due to the core having to work with so many different models.  But TBH I'm fine with that.

      Of course it does longer on a smaller battery, the OS has barely any functionality compared to Android.

  14. You know the saying "once an addict always an addict"?

     

    Well, this morning I'm trying that on my own body.

    Long story short, I fell and hurt my back and had to go to the ER.

    Apparently the doctor ignored, or didn't hear, me say that I didn't want opiates due to my former drug habit.

     

    Because right now I'm feeling withdrawals coming and the same cravings I did when I was still shooting up.

    1. Captain Chaos

      Captain Chaos

      Odds are that you'll be over it pretty soon.  However if the cravings persist for a while keep the following in mind : You've beaten it once, you can do it again. 

      Don't hesitate to seek help with that, there's plenty of organizations that help people with addiction and I'm pretty sure they'll be happy to help you out if they hear about the circumstances.

       

      And be sure to file a complaint against that doctor, what he did was seriously irresponsible.  You're always supposed to ask a patient about allergies and addictions before prescribing medication, especially when the medication is known to have an addictive effect.

      @CUDA_Cores you CAN delete a running executable or .dll file.  FileAssassin doesn't care if it's a protected system file or is in use.  Point it towards the file you want gone and it'll remove it. 

      Of course instabilities can be expected, but that's nothing that a hard reboot won't fix ... unless you deleted an essential OS file, of course.

  18. Damn it, lost a day of troubleshooting. After the whole NiceHash thing I started mining other coins, tried SGminer for ETH for a few days just to see.

     

    But somehow SGminer started to crash my display drivers (it was at first) and then the GPU would mine at it's idle speeds (300Mhz core and mem) ... couldn't figure out what was happening until I started running the benchmark with Afterburner open beside it (before that I would only check the GPU clocks after the hash rates went down the drain).

     

    I was scratching my head trying to figure out why my HD 7870 hash rates were down to 1/6th of what it used to be, switched back to Claymore and everything is back to normal! xD

     

    Not sure what's up with SGminer, seems some people (like me) have problems with it and their AMD cards but I couldn't find an easier solution than not using it! (there are solutions using older drivers but that seems overly complicated since I would have to download them and start playing with drivers install and uninstall).

    1. Captain Chaos

      Captain Chaos

      Well, you could always just start using Nicehash again.  My profit has gone up compared to before the hack. 

      The only real issue right now is the higher treshold for payouts to external wallets, but that'll sort itself out once the transaction costs drop back to reasonable levels.

  21. Alright after a month with my 1080 I can solidly say Pascal is horrible. On average it gets 11 FPS more than my 980ti did. It consumes less power but that doesn't justify dropping almost $600 if you upgraded from a 980ti. It also really help understand how bad 1070s are. Obviously if you are buying new into it with a budget get the 1080 over the 980ti but to upgrade from maxwell to pascal no way.

      I upgraded from a pair of 770s in SLI (trading blows with the 980ti in benchmarks) to a 1070 and had a 5FPS improvement.  It does use about 400W less than the SLI setup did though.

       

      It does a hell of a lot better than the older cards when it comes to VR, or so they say.  But who gives a damn about VR really?

      The Manitou forks in your background pic?  Parts shouldn't be a problem, a full revision kit is pretty cheap (at least for my Rockshox forks it was).  The main issue will be how much time they'll need to replace the seals.

       

      If you're handy, you may want to invest in buying the right tools and doing it yourself.  That will probably be a little cheaper and at least you'll be able to maintain the forks properly from then on.

  24. here's how little europe cares about trump:

     

    trump snapped at merkel and the EU, this is what the speech of the chairman of the EU was like:

    "i've read the article with interest." <insert long pause here>

     

    someone in the audience:

    "excuse me, this man is about to be president of the USA, one of the most powerful men in the world, and you're telling me that all you're gonna answer is that you read the article with interest."

     

    dude answers:

    "yes."

     

    i've never seen a speech where so little fucks were given it actually turned into comedy.
