    LG PF1000U Ultra Short Throw Projector Giveaway

    Would be awesome for a super compact setup, such as in your parents house, if they don't like it taking up room or being screwed the the ceiling.

    Tesoro Excalibur v2 & Sagitta Spectrum Giveaway

    I want a mouse because I'm a North Korean five year old child, and I'm glad this giveaway is regardless of age or location. Only joking, I want to replace my cheap mouse with broken buttons.

    Switch to Desktop

    I like the new mobile version, it actually works! I couldn't access many features on the old mobile version so just used desktop, I have good eyesight. It's good that both versions look similar now.

    Shure SE315 or SE425

    I've fixed my answer, thanks for the help.

    Shure SE315 or SE425

    I went and bought the SE425s, and have been using them for a month or so. I really like the audio quality, but I don't know how it compares to the SE325s. The isolation is really impressive, and I don't even realise my family are home until they come into the room and talk to me. The isolation is good on stage too, and I nearly had to put some hi hat and snare in my monitor mix, even standing right next to the kit. The only problem I have with them is a quiet but noticeable buzz (caused by high sensitivity) when using them with my laptop. After a while gaming, I don't notice it. I can use Spotify connect to play through my phone (with no buzz), and control the songs from my PC.

    Will this networking setup work

    To avoid interference, unplug devices, especially older ones, when not in use, and make sure extension cables are fully unwound everywhere in the house, etc.

    How much to wire house with Ethernet cables?

    If you're doing it while building the house, you could use plastic conduit (example), enabling you to easily run the cables once the walls have been build, and upgrades (e.g. newer cable, more cables in one room) and fixes are easier as the cables easily slide through, and won't get caught up.

    Dell Poweredge r210

    Watch Linus' videos about how to kill motherboards (or make a router). If you want to significantly modify the contents of the router, you may have trouble with a 1U case.

    Samsung 3.84 TB SSD

    I just realised that those Amazon links automatically direct to the correct Amazon site for my country! That's cool. Also, I want one.

    Router for large LAN events

    How long will the party last, because for a one day party any lease time over 18 hrs shouldn't cause any issues.

    Router for large LAN events

    I'm glad it worked out ok. Thanks for the reply to tell us about it. Now you know how to make it work better in future. If you had the money and use for it, building a complete thing in wheeled flightcase would be awesome. You'd just need that and some plastic storage boxes of cat5e with RJ45s attached.
  14. Obviously making a new standard the main connector would take time, and old hardware would exist for years to come. I was mostly talking hypothetically when I said that USB C should be the only connector.
