  • Biography
    I got started into the tech world after a debate between choosing a XBOX or a PC. Deciding to go with better graphics and cheaper games, I found myself understanding all there is to computers for around 6 months before actually buying and assembling my own computer.

    I currently play Battlefield 3 as well as some GTA. I generally like first person shooters, sandbox games, as well as puzzle games..

    LTX 2019 Suggestions!

    @cpotter Sweet, that's great to hear! On WAN show, Linus acknowledged the event was going to be quite large and he was mostly going to be a host. I understand as LTX grows, Linus cannot meet n greet with everyone, but as you can imagine, it takes away from part of the thrill of seeing the person whose shaped your life in the flesh. I know it's a bit impossible to do anything about it, but I figured I'd just ask anyways- can anything be done about it? Will the Delidded tickets be on sale again? I know the answer to this is probably going to be no- but are there plans for Delidded discounts for people flying in from out of North America? (Say EU/Asia?)

    Probably the only way we get that is the $1000 delidded ticket... Honestly, if I'm able to get a gig before graduating, I'm buying that ticket...

    Please age-gate the event in some way. As a long time viewer (quite literally 10 years at this point)- the kids
  4. WIP result- https://imgur.com/a/eCcuQ5J I really like the UV GTAV map and am trying to recreate it for use in laser-etching since I couldn't find a vector nor high-res photo of it anywhere; I was wondering if anyone knew where I could find a countour or elevation map (traces of slices at different elevations; like this one); or barring that- if its a simple process- tell me how to make one. The UV map uses it and to stay faithful to the original- I'd like incorporating it into my design. Ideally- the contour map would be either .svg, or something in black and white with no overlapping elements like text or roads on top. I'm going to upload a .svg variant of the final map once its done by the way, so everyone can make their own posters/ laser etches :3

    I find it even more disrespectful you're trying to publicly humiliate/ shame him and illicit some form of reaction from us as the community. It's his, he can do what he wants with it- trying to provocate the community into troubling him is... I don't know- kinda immature?

    Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro 2 launched, CFL-H CPU, 1050TI/1060 GPU

    I think you're mixing the news on the Gaming Notebook and the Notebook Pro; the updated Gaming Notebook has a completely revamped cooling system, alongside the 1060 and 8th gen i7, whereas the Notebook Pro changes are pretty much limited to a bumped up 1050ti, metal fans for more airflow, a faster card reader, some new CPU optimization which apparently boosts CPU only operations (when the GPU isn't being worked) by 20%, and maybe support for Windows Hello. (this is accurate, been reading articles about this since the last half hour or so to try and get over my buyers remorse). As someone who just bought the Notebook Pro less than a week back- I have seriously mixed feelings about this. On one hand, the extra horsepower is nice, but the tradeoff being battery life (current one lasts me around 17-19 hours on idle with the screen on) and extra heat; I purchased the Notebook Pro primarily for mobility with light gaming on the side, hell, I went out of my way to only look at MX150 equipped laptops before settling on the Notebook Pro; I just wished they raised the price or something so I'd feel better.

    My experience buying a Xiaomi Notebook Pro from FastTech.com

    This is off-topic to the post, but the Notebook is working (48 hours of Memtest, 24 hours of Prime95 with small FFTs, 1 hour of Furmark, SSD error scan using HDTune, dead pixel test) and with the screen brightness turned all the way down and left running, can run for over 18 hours. I'm currently in the process of buying a 3 year SquareTrade warranty for it alongside a 1-2TB m.2 drive for mass storage on it, but yeah; I guess that concludes my experience buying from FastTech for now. Hope this helps someone! If anyone has any questions about buying from FastTech or about the Notebook Pro itself, feel free to post here or message me!
  8. TL;DR- Friendly, quick-to reply customer service coupled with timely updates, shipping and communication for orders- FastTech has been an uneventful shopping experience- just how it should be for shopping for computers and gets my endorsement. Order History (time in PST): (I cannot confirm nor deny any actions, conversations, or correspondences that may or may not have happened below for obvious reasons): 18th July, 12:06PM: Created FastTech account 19th July, 11:52AM: Placed Order for Xiaomi Notebook Pro w/ DHL Express Shipping, gift-wrapping, and hardbox packaging 22nd July, 8:15PM: Contacted by FastTech to whether I wanted to change the declared value on the package; their message (email and ticket on their site) said if I didn't reply back in 24 hours, the package would be shipped with its true vale. 23rd July, 7:45AM: Replied back asking the declared value of the package to $400 (value of Xiaomi's cheapest notebook) 23rd July, 7:16PM: Followed up with FastTech's live chat about an update about changing the packages declared value since I hadn't heard back from their support yet, and was nervous about it shipping with a declared value of over $1,000. Was told that their colleague would look into it as soon as possible. 23rd July, 8:34PM: Received confirmation that the order would be shipped with my asked value. 24th July, 5:53AM: Received order shipping confirmation (tracking number not working though; website asked waiting for 2 days for it to activate though) 25th July, 6:46PM: Received updated tracking number via email and support ticket; my orders page was updated with a picture of the package and tracking number. 27th July, 10:10AM: Received by me. Pictures of Packaging: https://imgur.com/a/kAxDqI7 Proof of Purchase: https://imgur.com/a/qe4pD6l Notes on packaging: When initially opening the package- I wished there was more bubble wrap around the inside box, but given the laptop box itself was enclosed in soft packaging foam- it wouldn't have helped a lot anyways in hindsight and would only serve to increase the already expensive shipping costs. There was a minor dent in the exterior packaging, but but the innermost box for the notebook itself was undamaged. The notebook box itself still had it's original shrink wrap on and security stickers- it was brand new There was some odor when opening the box, but the actual package enclosed in shrink wrap was odor free. For $1.50, the hard box and gift wrapping was well worth it; moreso since if opened by customs- gifts are usually not dutied at all. The above is as objective and factual as I can get it to be, that all said, if you want to hear more about my experience as I delve into the subjective, read on! Why did I not want to choose FastTech Little to no customer reviews nor shopping experiences on high end electronics purchases. Website looked outdated/ sketchy with unmatched fonts and styles Missing as a recommended seller under the r/Xiaomi wiki Why did I choose FastTech? Some subreddits (mostly those around ecigs and vaping of all places, with some scattered posts on tech ones) held their customer service among the best in the industry for imports from China- both in responsiveness and professionalism. This was the biggest reason atleast for me for going through with them- I wanted someone to have my back incase something went wrong and not have to deal bad customer service with weeks in CS replies for shipping delays, damaged goods, etc.; and atleast from what I read- that wouldn't be the case with them, which was a huge relief over others like GearBest whom were plagued with horror stories around delays and non-responsiveness. Their return policies were far better than GearBest, BangGood, Aliexpress and I could pay through PayPal- if something went wrong and if they refused to cooperate- I could go through PayPal. I mean, to quote their website- "FastTech reimburses return shipping charges. Contact us for a RMA, within 5 days of delivery, and ship products back via the least expensive method."; aka- they cover back a 100% of shipping fees during that 5 day return window. Comparable price to GearBest, BangGood, and Aliexpress (not really a shopping factor for me; $25-50 here or there is a bit trivial when you're paying $1,000+ for a laptop), I'd rather pay more for better CS. They may or may not offer changing the value of packages that they ship as well as gift wrapping them, which means paying little to nothing at all in customs duty. I read horror stories of people being charged over $200 for duties which would be crazy expensive for a laptop, so this, if true, would also have been a strong reason for me going through with them. Their policies said they would work as a middleman between the customer and Xiaomi itself if anything goes wrong after 6 months and up until a year after the order date to fix the device. Other notes: Overall, I'm pretty pleased with my experience- it was uneventful and required minimal input from me after placing my order- just like how anything that was ordered online should be. Atleast from my experience with them- I feel confident recommending them to others and they're definitely going to be my go-to for ordering products in the future if the need to do so arises again. From staff that replied in quite literally hours in legible/ clear English to actually adding a photo of the box as it shipped- buying from them has been a really stress-free experience.

    Windows not using >12.5GB of installed 2x8GB

    Thanks for your suggestions; I've tried the both of them- but the issue still persists. I've managed to isolate this to a problem within Windows by using three computers that are available to me- two of them with 8GB of RAM start behaving weirdly, force-closing programs and blackscreening Chroma tabs at 6GB; the 16GB one does so at 12.5-13GB. Edit- I've realized its because total physical memory =/= installed memory; I'm looking into ways to fix this and will update this post if I manage to fix it; if you have an idea before I do so though- please post away!

    Windows not using >12.5GB of installed 2x8GB

    The system is detecting 16GB of RAM and memtest is able to access all of it too (correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think it'd be able to pass the test multiple times if it didn't). It seems more like Windows 10 being Windows 10, but I'll give it a shot and report back if reseating the memory fixes it.
  11. Problem: Windows won't use more than 12.5GBish of my 16GB memory, chrome force quits tabs, applications force-close, and Windows gives me the running out of memory message when exceeding 12.5GB of usage despite having about 3.5GB more left to use. Relevant Specs: Windows 10 Pro 64bit AMD RYZEN 7 1700 8-Core 3.0 GHz (3.7 GHz Turbo) ASRock Fatal1ty AB350 Gaming-ITX/ac AM4 CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 3000 (PC4 24000) CMK16GX4M2B3000C15 EVGA GTX 1080 Founders Edition Things tried: Running memtest for 36 hours, it hasn't reported any errors.

    Questions About LTX 2018? AMA.

    Will we be able to purchase shirts with the blue background with the orange design the LTX crew was wearing during the event? I loved the contrast between the two of them and would love to own one of those shirts if at all possible.

    So I had the best time of my life... See you again next year

    Ehh- 7 years; (basically till it expires; 10 years if I got my passport renewed before applying)- Canada's pretty nice about visa expiration dates; since I pretty much got a Visa just for LTX, that means my Visitors visa can actually have me joining LTX all the way until 2025 :3

    LTX Feedback Thread (unofficial)

    I'm not sure I follow through about what you mean by "you tried to comment on his safety"; if possible, could you explain that a bit more? To address your point for a LAN party- for BYOC- you don't need much- just throw a few benches and tables together, organize some power and networking- and bam, you've got a LAN party; as for seating- have as many spaces as there are attendees? My suggestion stems from attending LANSyndicate a few years back- they had a few hundred attendees with workstations and such- which were being propped up on some bare steel frames and had us sitting on similar bare steel chairs; there were no thefts, damages, or anything of the sort As for security- LANSyndicate didn't have any- LTX on the other hand already had 2-3 security staff (appeared to be professionals who were contracted) at the venue; they're already paying for security. At the same time though- LANSyndicate went over the course of 3 days- so I see your point- for a one day event, it'd be way too much work to bring in and bring back out networking from a sports stadium no less. As for giveaways- to each his own and how they tend to deal with availability- I was just voicing a concern; but I did feel as though atleast on the tail half of the event, the entire thing was just focused around giveaways when the event was about so much more than that- don't get me wrong- I like giveaways as much as the next person, but they should be a part of the event, not the focus of it. Seeing them in person is pretty amazing and definitely worth the trouble; the event as a whole was pretty fun too! If you get the opportunity to- definitely try making it to the one next year; if you do and if my own situation allows- maybe see you there in 2019?!

    So I had the best time of my life... See you again next year

    Now that I actually have a Canadian Visa, hell yes! I didn't get the delidded version because I only applied for the Visa after the tickets went live, and by the time I was notified my visa was actually approved, they were sold out Won't be the case next year though!
