  1. On my AVR (Denon X1400H) my TV remote (also Samsung) only controls the volume when outputting over HDMI and not over TOSLINK, so I think it's limited to HDMI (or at least excludes TOSLINK)
  2. I have been looking forward to this game actually. It looks pretty interesting. Exactly, it's just a game...

    Looking for a good mmorpg game

    I have played Guild Wars 2 and FF XIV in the past and I think either had plenty to do if I remember right. It's been a looong time since I've played either of them though.

    It all started with thermal paste

    Yeah I'd take a look at temperatures first. Maybe the application of the paste went wrong or not enough mounting pressure after putting it back on.
  5. In the loop when the PC is running? Yes. Normal water usage? Not really. I flush mine a few times with boiled tap water and then do a final rinse or two with distilled water. Just be careful when using hot water, it is a radiator and they are built to transport heat, so hot water in means probably hot to the touch radiator. I mean the thing is made of metal, it's not going to melt. You're most likely to damage it by other means when building, such as destroying some fins or poking a hole in the fragile waterways connected to the fins.

    What is this???

    Not gonna download random files from a forum, but maybe it's a signature/certificate or something. I sometimes see those appear as attachments.

    Should Windows...

    Also consider the cost of training every person in such an establishment (or the entire industry) to switch to and use the new system. I think that's what's mainly stopping these kind of big switches.

    Should they be forced to pay?

    They should still pay, even if they are emergency services, how it's paid can be different maybe. If not for the least to guarantee some standard of quality. If you pay for something you can complain if it's not up to the promised standards. I'm not familiar with your medical system, but I can only assume at least some part of your bills go towards paying their own.

    Should they be forced to pay?

    Of course they should. How would the internet and phone companies stay in business otherwise?
  10. Every now and then. There weren't that many games where it really added to the experience I guess, but I enjoyed using it from time to time.

    Dangers of 5G a real risk?

    Haha true. I knew the damage would come from heating, but I doubt they'd think mass-microwaving everyone with supercharged cell towers would be a good idea, so surely they'd emit at a safe power level (except close up maaaybe)

    Dangers of 5G a real risk?

    But mechanical waves are waves like sound, so I guess I get the point, but saying radio waves are mechanical and aren't polarized (what I assume was meant with the "90 degree counterpart") is still wrong (or they have a different meaning for mechanical).

    Dangers of 5G a real risk?

    Radio waves are electromagnetic radiation, not mechanical radiation. Could you elaborate a bit on this statement?

    Best mac for programming

    Just to chip in, this statement stands free from choosing one OS or the other. What he meant is that IDEs can be a black box: code goes in, <black box magic >, program comes out. Using command line tools makes you better understand what steps "black box magic" part takes to turn your code into a program and will help you understand better when and where things can and will go wrong.

    Dangers of 5G a real risk?

    Aloe vera extract and ehaust fumes are also in that category. They clarify after that which, as mentioned before, is because one can never prove something is safe, but in this case it also cannot be significantly proven that it is not.
