  1. fun fact: fedex's building in belgium is a rotten dump with dirty mirrored windows, and DHL just freshly built a warehouse across the street from them, in bright DHL yellow, so now when you approach fedex it mirrors the DHL yellow warehouse, with its giant pink tower right in the middle it's like DHL actually sent a guy with a paint roller up there to mock fedex.
  2. may wanna call alternate about this, i dont see how this is possible, seeing you'd have to overwite the entire disk every day just contact their support and explain what you're seeing, and ask if they've seen it before. chances are they either know what causes it, or have other options for you. their phone support team are usually super helpful.
  3. fedex developers are too lazy to replace a 20 year old server that HP themeslves has warned them about being on the edge of failing with no spare parts anywhere left. the thing is mission critical as well, that's the best part of it.
  4. you didnt happen to buy that thing off of amazon did you?
  5. it'll work, but it's not the optimal configuration.
  6. because every channel can handle two dimms, that's why most quad channel chipsets come with 8 slots
  7. so.. i figured out why my RC boat becomes so uncontrollable when stepping on the throttle...


    the screw creates that much swirling in the water that the entire left side of the rudder becomes an air pocket :D

      at what point does power become too much power?


      about 40% is what my answer would be, because this is what 100% looks like:


      that's a wake taller than the stern of the dang boat xD

  8. guys, i need an advice:

    do i buy a premade battery pack of questionable quality, and have a chance it'll suck, or a chance it'll be good


    or do i buy a bunch of eneloops, and make my own pack?


    it's to replace a pair of battery packs that i switch back and forth now in an RC thing, that were 750 and 650 mAh once upon a time, but now they're so potato that they essentially discharge within minutes.

      Fair enough :P 


      I mean I'd probably say the premade but hey, what do I know?

      should add to that, i DONT wanna touch conrad's lipo's, they managed to sell regular ordinary 9 volt batteries that go thermonuclear when empty..

    4. themctipers


      A bunch of eneloops

  9. and if the bill gets passed, make sure your endpint isnt in the united states of rich people getting what they want.
  10. you know.. the issue is, sure if you get a VPN *your* ISP cant see anything, but there's always an endpoint somewhere that knows what's up. companies like tunnelbear do all in their power to give their users the anonymity they want, which is probably 95% there, but to get 100%, much like the audiophile world, essentially becomes an exponential function for tiny jumps in added security. essentially, tunnelbear's (and any other VPN with similar policies) profit is in not knowing who you are, but they dont really have much control over what's beyond their systems, and you better believe everything out there is tracking you in some way. even as simple as a store's single-page website with their contact details may do an attempt to track so they can collect information on how many individual people visited their website, how many returned there, and how much extra customer that brought in.
  11. unless the brand behind it kinda guarantees you of what you'll be getting, there's always a chance. i'm not saying the chinese one will set your house on fire, i'm just saying the chance is considerably higher that it's a bad unit compared to a reputable brand.
  12. well.. for "the best" we're talking 4 digits, at least, to put a rough guess on it.
  13. the best would be completely out of reach of your budget.
  14. well.. what cpu do you have now?
