  1. I'm currently making an RSS reader, and every other RSS feed I've tried has worked, but my site crashes every time a CNN feed is inputted. The parsed items are put into a list and sorted by pubDate. for source in sources: rss = feedparser.parse(source.url) try: items.extend(rss["items"]) except KeyError: continue items = list(reversed(sorted(items, key=lambda item: item["updated_parsed"]))) Is there a problem with my code or is it CNN's feed?

    Okay, thanks so much for the info

    How to rewire wires broken off from plug?

    The whole thing is attached to an AIO cpu block(it's an NZXT kraken) and split off from a SATA connector. So if I buy new pins I would just have to cut the off the daisy chain of fan headers from the split, fabricate a new chain, and then rewire them back?

    How to rewire wires broken off from plug?

    The crimpers would be to reattach the plastic plug after soldering the wires back, right? What would be the best way to take off the plastic plug?

    How to rewire wires broken off from plug?

    What do you mean by new connector?
  6. So two wires connecting the fan header plugs on my AIO have broken off(see image). How would I go about repairing something like this?
  7. I am planning to swap my motherboard for an ITX one with the same chipset without fresh installing Windows. What drivers or other programs need to be uninstalled before the swap?

    Where can cameras go from here?

    IMO, I think that the most exciting thing about tech is stuff becoming more cheaper and accessible. New features are great of course.

    difference between 1070 vs 1070 TI?

    Firstly, the price difference. The 1070 TI usually costs a $100 more. For that you get about 500 more CUDA cores and a slightly faster base clock, about 100 mHz.

    Two Sata cables with Power Supply

    Just keep it around in a desk drawer or something. Never know when you might need it for a storage upgrade. Or sell it on eBay at $10 a pop.

    Ambient temperature display

    For external temps, a thermometer is probably your best bet. I don't think the 5.25 bay ones are very mod-able tho. You can fabricate a custom one using a Raspberry Pi with a temp sensor, and write a program that receives CPU temps from your PC and displays that and the external temp together.

    Pixel XL Snapchat Quality

    Good camera = good snapchat? Pixel phones have very good cameras.
  13. Is it necessary if the mobo is the same chipset? The version of Windows I currently have installed is the free upgrade version from almost 3 years ago. I don't want to have to clean install because I've heard that the only way to activate this version is to link a Microsoft account to the OS, which is something I don't to do. Are there any other ways of activation?
  14. What would be the best way of selling my used parts? Ebay, Craigslist, or something else?
  15. I'm a total noob in the Android world, I've only started getting into it a couple weeks ago, and I've discovered that there are multiple different layout types. I've been using ConstraintLayout this entire time, so I went to look at the Android Developer video on it. All the comments are about how bad it is compared to other solutions. What exactly are the pros and cons of the most used layouts?
