    Virus__ reacted to Mira Yurizaki in Would lead based paints be good to have for living in Russia, Japan, or on Mars?   
    Sure. But if you were living in an area where this is of concern, the government will "kindly" remind you not to live there.

    Latest rescue: A Macbook a1181 I got for 5 bucks. Thing was nasty as hell, had all sort of marks on it, etc. Cleaned it up, swapped the busted HDD out for a 120GB SSD I had laying around, upgraded it from 1GB 667 to 4GB 800 and installed Mavericks (because 10.10+ is ugly as shit and this thing isn't really gonna do much anyway). For web browsing, it's still just fine. People underestimate what a 2.0ghz Duo is still capable of. 720p60 youtube videos run at full speed and I have the latest version of Firefox, so it's not obsolete yet. As for gaming, I mainly just stick to old console emulators these days anyway so this old thing could satisfy me. Mainly just happy to have a functional Intel Mac around, even if it is the bare minimum. But it's enough power to run my game, so if I ever get to do a Mac port later on I'll have hardware to do some basic testing on without borrowing anything. I've got a battery on the way too, though it's an ebay cheapy so I don't expect much. Haha, it'll probably still have better battery life than my actual laptop.

    Hardware I got off sale areas around some forums.
    Two NVMe drives, 970 Pro 512GB and an Intel 660p 2TB.
    Then nab some 32GB of DDR4 sticks off another chap.  Mostly just to throw into one of my systems to tinker with.

     
    Now, back to eyeing those GTs I saw at another sales area.

    No. There's only going to be X570 boards, AMD doesn't want poor people buying their products any more. Only rich people who Intel screwed over.

    Firefox is great. Made a couple jokes at its expense, because it's pretty much always been the "other" browser, even though it's reliable, feature-rich, and getting faster all the time. Not to mention it's run by people who actually seem to care about the web and open-source. 
     
    I actually have been seriously considering switching to it, just to give Google one less thing. 
     
    Anyways luv ya

    It's by SnapOn Tools. They make insanely expensive but quality tools (still too expensive for my liking). Good luck finding one, as the orange one he has is an old model & is not in production any more.

    The style of his screwdriver is called a ratchet screwdriver. I use one of these by Stanley personally. It was about 1/10th the price of the one Linus uses from Snap On.

    Virus__ reacted to RejZoR in Recommend Me A Wireless Charger   
    This charger is quite nice then. And it was like 13€ lol. Looks really nice in white, it has a small OLED display which shows the charging status so you actually know how it's charging and at what voltages and watts (while display/indicator isn't bright at all so it won't lit up the room at night like some Qi chargers do) and it came with really high quality Lightning cable. Basically any Qi charger you'll take will charge at 5W then unless the output on the adapter is less than 1A which is generally very hard to find these days. Plus there is some loss with induction transfer of energy so it's probably 5W on the Qi charger, but less on the phone side.

    Bought an iPhone Xr 64GB the other week. Slapped a Dbrand swarm skin on it along with a tempered glass case & screen protector. Looks nice. I also love how Dbrand let you opt to not have the Apple logo now.

    I do not watch Gamer's Nexus. I find him rather odd and he wireds me out with how he looks homeless and all. Not only that but it drives me nuts how he gets stuff wrong all the time.
     
    If I wanted a informative video I would watch something from Jayz, but that's just my two cents worth of an opinion.

    Go get a job you moocher & stop asking for handouts. You do not need a PC with the latest & greatest, it's not a necessity, it's a luxury. I worked hard to pay for my PC. If yours turns on & you're able to do basic stuff like web browse & watch YouTube then I reckon you're doing alright.
