  1. Have any of the Europeans here done a Carbage Run in the last few years? I'm really tempted to take part in the 2019 edition.
  2. You're right, I've never driven one. Just thought that it might fit, but I just had a look and they're almost 1500kg. The front looks alright , but the back is hideous. I know that they designed it as nod to the 1800ES but it just doesn't work for me.
  3. Those are the mainstream options. There are a few weird cars like the Volvo C30 (230hp 5cyl?) but it looks like someone backed it into a wall in the factory. Or The DS3 (Racing). Then there's the Suzuki Swift Sport with 140hp. Toyota does a hot version of the Yaris, called the Yaris GRMN, but that costs over 30000€.
  4. Adam S Smart Brabus (That's 40.000€ too much) A1 but that's a bit bigger
  5. I was specifically going for used cars... The OPC ones are too expensive if you want one that hasn't been ruined by its previous owner. You can find a nice stock GSI for far less.
  6. Corsa GSI MINI Cooper S Smart ForFour Brabus Alfa MiTo 155 Peugeot 207 155/175
  7. Joke's on you. Here in Europe we get all of the good cars. Like Peugeots. Or the Fiat Multipla.
  8. Find a parking space in a European city, get good gas mileage, keep the things I'm transporting dry when it rains, go round corners ...
  9. Ah, I see. I haven't had the best experience with them, but if yours runs fine then who am I to judge...
  10. Just a few days ago, I replaced a leaking vacuum hose on the Saab, only to be greeted with what sounded like a broken throttle body. Fortunately it was yet ANOTHER vacuum hose that was fucked. Needless to say, I'll replace all of the vacuum lines when the car comes back from the mechanic, let's see what else is broken and covered up by those. Are you sure this isn't just because it's a Peugeot?
  11. Good news! I finally replaced my boring Golf with something more exciting: An '02 Saab 9-5 Aero wagon. 2.3l, 4 cylinders and big old Turbo. Im blown away by it. The seats are incredibly comfortable and it makes 250hp. Unfortunately it's an automatic, but that fits the cars character quite well. Put some new snow tires on it today, so I'm ready for the ski season. It was kinda broken when I bought it, but a few sparkplugs and an ignition Cassette later, it runs like new.

    Help with ASIO4ALL

    You should always restart after installing a driver. Try uninstalling ASIO, restart, reinstall, and restart again.

    Help with ASIO4ALL

    Have you restarted your computer after the install?
  14. There is no "stealing". Every site visitor who watches the video will generate a view on the LTT video because they embedded the original LTT video. No theft of any kind is happening here.
  15. You know that it's just embedded, right? It's still Linus's original video on Youtube.
  16. I had to replace my boot lock today. After I pulled it out, I saw why it wasn't working any more; It's got a lot of corrosion... Has anybody an idea as to why this could have happened?
  17. If you can afford a new motherboard, then a 1600 is your best bet. If not, then an i5 will also work, just a bit worse.
  18. Are you using GPU acceleration? You have to manually enable it in the option (see the link I posted). A better CPU will help you a lot with this kind of work, an i5 is fine. I would go for AMD (Ryzen 5 1600(X) ) in this case, as you're getting a lot more power for your money. This would involve buying a new motherboard though.
  19. You can utilize your GPU with CUDA when you use the Cycles render option. You can read more about that here: https://docs.blender.org/manual/en/dev/render/cycles/gpu_rendering.html
  20. This is probably because of an error with the certificates. I assume that your system time (the clock in the lower right corner) is not set properly, so Chrome assumes all of the website's certificates are invalid. Set the proper time and date in Windows and that issue should be fixed.
  21. The i3 has slightly better integrated graphics, but I don't think this will matter.
  22. I'm not sure if this is the right distro in this case. Mint has a reputation for not handing out kernel updates by default. They have apparently fixed that a little bit in the recent 18 release, but it still seems a bit dodgy to me. There are GUI's for the network managers, but I would not recommend using these. You'll learn a lot from configuring the network via the command line. There are a lot of guides on how to do that. I would recommend using Ubuntu, as it is the most popular, and has the most guides and answered questions available.
