  1. Hmm I have a highly different opinion on that video than you do. The gpu shortage caused by mining is definitely felt; just look at the forums here. I am sure with Jay he sees the same thing. You make it sound like a bad thing that he doesn't like seeing all the media about us the *average* user trying to find reasonable prices. You said it's like a professional sports player complaining about equipment prices. You're missing a key point there. It's like saying a professional sports player is complaining that the sport they play isn't growing like they want because the cost of equipment prices. It's not about the professional it's about the people who make up the majority. That makes sense why you think Jay is wrong. Because he is caring about the community you are a part of and you don't. Sounds more like you are barking up the wrong tree instead of Jay.
  2. That's how different polls usually work. They show different numbers. Though I know what you are getting at there. Here's a few more sources (still haven't determined if they are biased or not). https://blog.mozilla.org/blog/2017/06/06/new-mozilla-poll-americans-political-parties-overwhelmingly-support-net-neutrality/ https://morningconsult.com/2017/11/29/strong-support-net-neutrality-rules-fcc-considers-repeal/ https://www.scribd.com/document/353285485/Freedman-Consulting-Net-Neutrality-Poll Numbers vary from ~50% to 80%. Either way that's still an overwhelming majority which, right or wrong, should be taken into account by the agencies who are supposed to represent the public. Here is an outline which if you aren't satisfied with plain readable text version you can look up the lawyer speak version: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rulemaking ------------- On to main post; I am not surprised by this. It will be interesting to see if NN ruling does get overturned or not. Won't be surprised if this whole thing continues for quite some time.
  3. Any recommendations for this build?

    Agree you don't need both wifi on your motherboard and a wifi card. As far as RAM get whatever is cheapest above 2800. And, you plan on using 6 fans?
  4. Premiere is actually an amazing tool to learn on. You can go as simple or complex as you want (or know for that matter).
  5. Should I buy a Mavic Pro drone?

    Yes, you actually register yourself and stamp your ID on all drones you fly. You don't go and register each drone individually, rather you stamp your ID you get from the FAA on all drones you fly. It's actually a quite simple and easy process.
  6. Should I buy a Mavic Pro drone?

    So, in the US you are required to register yourself which gives you a unique number. This unique number is required to be somewhere on the drone. You must maintain line of sight with the drone. As far as the airport situation give this a read: https://www.aopa.org/go-fly/aircraft-and-ownership/drones/best-practices-for-flying-your-drone-near-an-airport Drones are an amazing time, just be sure to follow the laws. And yes the Mavic Pro is a solid choice and you already seemed to have done research to buy extra batteries!
  7. 1440p, how much better?

    I agree there. I like high frame rates, my eyes respond better to higher framerates than they do to resolution. I like 1440p because it's easy-ish enough to drive at semi high framerates and looks better than 1080p. On topic: if you go above 24" I would recommend 1440p or higher as at normal distances it can look pretty poor. (For reference I run a 3440x1440 at 100Hz).
  8. Also, how do you cover operating costs? You said everything would be free, but if that's case it wouldn't really be a business?
  9. I had 0 issues getting my Corsair Dominator Platinum to work at 3000mhz in a 2x16gb config. I can't imagine it would throw too much of a fit adding a second set. Maybe I got lucky, maybe I'm ignorant.
  10. PUBG to come to mobile

    I'm with you. I don't get "it". But if it's popular then it's popular. Doesn't PUBG have a lot of issues as it is on PC? Wouldn't it make sense to get out of alpha and fix those issues before porting?
  11. This is sort of where I am at on this. Majority of these things I would much rather do at my house (or a friends house) than go somewhere to do it. I much prefer watching specific events with said event in focus instead of having multiple things all going on at once. If I want more than one, my phone sends updates for 90% of it. Would some desks have computers and some not? Either way DND is a game I very much care to enjoy privately with my group (we get silly and we don't always play by the official rules we play what's fun). As for LAN events I pretty much refuse to use any computer that isn't mine or doesn't have my settings etc. If I want to LAN it will be with my computer and would much rather not have that in public. I do the same thing on the internet via forums, reddit etc, and it gives a much broader view. I speak for no one other than myself. I don't label myself as anti-social, but I very much prefer when doing events described here to be in the comfort of my own home, or at a friends and not have strangers potentially breathing down my neck. This is really how I feel. It offers me nothing that I can't do at home or at a friends. Especially because I have a lot of gaming friends that we don't live close to each other.
  12. got better gas mileage using premium in a regular car

    Most premium fuel will yield higher mpg but costs more. But you will never save money by buying premium if you are solely looking for prices/miles. Similarly you won't save money by buying flex fuel (E-85) because you get lower gas mileage. You buy premium (or flex fuel) for the other potential benefits. Premium being healthier in the long run for your engine and flex fuel being more environmentally friendly. Just my two cents anyway.
  13. This exactly how I am. I pay and am willing to pay what I think something is worth. Not what someone else tells me it's worth. I haven't bought a game for $60 in a long time. I either wait until it goes on sale because I personally don't think it's worth full price (won't play it a lot OR don't know if I will play it a lot) or I shell out for one of the special editions etc when I know I will play the game a lot and want to support the devs.
  14. I don't think it's the 2 hour a day average. It that it is calculated at 2 hours a day for a whole year which equates to ~900 hours on a single game which is the outrageous part.
  15. NH C14 with 7700K throttling.

    What are idle temps like?
