    Whoosh - The Airplane and Airline Thread

    I can't wait until I get to fly on a Dreamliner.
  2. I am in rural midwest US, and have had access to gigabit service for a couple years. I wish things would progress faster, isps seem to charge enough to fund these upgrades.

    Discord Server Temporarily Unvailable?

    This works a lot. Just change the region, let it reload and see if that works. (Often you can change it right back to the original region and be fine.)
  4. I really really wish it had a GPS module. I would really like a windows solution for my flight EFB (electronic flight bag). If it had one, I would buy it in a heart beat. To me it fits my need of a tablet that can do slightly more than a normal tablet.
  5. As far as I am aware this has been a thing for awhile. I have had to play sales tax on Amazon for well over a year at this point. Not sure where the figures of Amazon only collects sales tax in two states. I know for sure there are more stats than just Washington and Pennsylvania they collect tax. The law was, any place an online retailer has a physical presence, must pay tax if I remember correctly. Here is an example from a recent Amazon order.
  6. If they can get 'full' windows on a phone, even if just a 'regular' single screen phone and have the same design methodology as the surface devices I would be in. Though the dual screen seems enticing I tend to avoid first generation products like that. Though just having Microsoft seemingly being the phone space is exciting.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.

    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?
  10. Premiere is actually an amazing tool to learn on. You can go as simple or complex as you want (or know for that matter).

    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.

    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!

    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).
  14. 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?
  15. 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.
