  • Biography
    Just a crazy gal who likes building computers and messing with them for fun. Actually like anything that I can take apart and build.

    Just finished Associate Degree in CS later going to Auburn for duel major in CS/Electrical Engineering.

    What I do in the Guard: Fight with printers that don't like to hook to network, deal with routers that love to drop parts of their configs out, and on top of that, deal with peeps with degrees who ask some really stupid questions about their VoIP phones.

  1. The school computers

    Yep, same with our extra IT classes we took. Teacher actually encouraged us to break through stuff, as long as it was not super illegal though. Heck, poor IT had no luck against all three classes: IT class, web design class, and automotive class. If one got stuck or blocked, the other two had ideas.
  2. The school computers

    Or, games that run in Excel. Though, what I remember of school computers back in 2004-2008 was the security settings sucked major. Proxy worked and most game sites where not blocked. Heck, if you knew the sites IP, stupid firewall the school had would not block inputting that for the site. Then again, this was an extra tech class for computers and we had one peep with a binder with 20+ pages full of proxy sites and VPNs. We may of been country kids, but boy, we where stinkers that go to lengths to work around barriers.
  3. Yep, though, that mostly the red and white for sound. I think the only thing I still have that uses RCA with all three colors is my Gamecube and Wii.
  4. EA Shuts down Visceral Games

    Pretty much what EA done to any game developer is deplorable. Sim City was the last straw for me because I really enjoyed that game series while growing up. I am starting to think the game industry is going that way. Sooner or later something is going to give. Only a few publishers/developers I know still put out some solid big games without the crap micro transaction bull.
  5. I just looked at the pocket WiFis. One they are offering allows dual antenna ports but hidden. So, if I can't transfer the SIM, I can still setup dual Yagi antennas. By looking at that coverage tool, I am lucky enough to just fall into coverage (barely).
  6. Hmmm, I may look into that as well then. Spirit not big in the area, but I am going to be using dual Yagi antennas with high gain to aim at a cellular tower (the SIM router I plan to get allows two antennas). So, as long as one tower is near enough, I can get the network. Seriously, though if I can get it, 500 bucks a year comes out to like 42 bucks a month. That would slash my Internet bill in half for each month. Hmmm, they give a Netgear hotspot, wonder if they allow the SIM to be switched into a different SIM router instead? There are unlimited packages, but most I found are expensive. Some I found range from 90 to over 150 to even 200 bucks a month. Reason I stated me trying to find one that won't rape my pay check. What is nutty, is all of the ones I find are pretty much running off the four big cellular providers.
  7. I can't even get it. And, I live in Alabama when state side. I already research into it. People are already being turned away. Also, they lock you into their equipment, which I have a high dislike to that practice (another reason I want to get away from sat). The major slap in the face about it...one of their towers is the closest one to me. These PR stunts are the major reason I don't trust what these cellular providers claim in the States. Claim to provide in 18 States, but don't cover all the rural areas within them. Yeah, butt load of bull.
  8. Yeah, I can see fiber still important for cities and large population areas, especially the network hubs and towers. Though, trying to do that across rural areas is not going to work really well for a large country. That where I hope the cellular networks can work out, if the providers can stop being crap tards about providing affordable home Internet plans for us folks in the country side. Then again, they rape us over our cell phone bills, so my hopes are not high at all. I'm aware that the LTE is better than sat. Major reason I been researching to use cellular for my home Internet once I am back State side. Only issue I still working around is finding a plan that don't eat my pay check alive each month.
  9. EA Shuts down Visceral Games

    EA been on the top of my list to never buy games published by them. Why? ....They mess up Maxis and Sim City. I will never buy games published by them again. I don't give a crap even if a game is good later on.
  10. The thing is, people seem to not realize you can use these cellular networks for home Internet. No lines, just need a good SIM router and antennas, and bam, you got speeds and latency that beats satellite providers in the country side. Reason I just shake my head at these providers. They could easily claim customers all over the country side. This 5G is interesting. Hopefully it does open up unlimited data plans or something. Be nice if I can setup a home Internet to use that instead of the crap Satellite (going to drop it soon and setup an antenna and SIM router). Some of the videos I watch to research for using cellular networks for home Internet show streaming HD videos off of 4G LTE networks. Only problem, finding a darn plan that don't eat you alive or limit, but seems if you know which tower to aim at you hardly lose speed even when losing higher priority. Of course, I plan to go a slight over kill with getting some darn good antennas and a business class SIM router that can take any SIM card and work across all available cellular bands.
  11. Yep, got to ask. Some places have no problems giving away older computer hardware as it easier to give away than go with the annoyance of disposing of the equipment. Could also ask the CS teachers. That how I am going to later get some older business class routers and switches, since the CS teacher I took classes under has no problems with me taking a few once the hardware is replaced.
  12. A 1080Ti can put some serious output in folding. Think last I checked, the output is over 1mil PPD in a day (varying by WUs of course). Biggest thing with folding, mind the temperature on the card. RAM on the card want be beat up as bad since folding drops the card into 2P state (that was on Maxwell cards, I think Pascal cards still do the same behavior). So, OCing RAM is not consider useful. Also, if you overclock, don't use the same overclock in games for folding/boinc. Some cards can hold the same clock, but you run the risk of failing WUs if the clock not 100% rock solid.
  13. Vodafone Germany announced 1Gbit LTE

    Wi-Fi utilizes RF (Radio Frequency). By my understanding, some cellular companies all ready combine frequency bands for higher output. Of course, I am curious what bands they are using. When cellular companies talk bands, they are using RF terminology. Antennas also have a great affect on RF on how it is received and transmitted. I'm currently studying for my Ham license, which the books for it put a whole chapter to antennas because how that one piece can greatly change on which bands you can use.
  14. Sorry to say, no, mining does not push to max. You want max, you make a GPU do PrimeGrid, E@H, and other BOINC projects 24/7. It will make your computer a literal space heater. E@H configured to run two WUs on one GPU will really test stability on a card big time. If someone going to do mining properly, the individual is going to undervolt or/plus lower TDP % to control perf/watts and lower temperatures. People need to do research before doing any mining. Otherwise, individuals are just wasting the potential of the card and electricity if they leave the cards on default or do some stupid full throttle overclocking. I currently have two 1070s doing mining. And both are on air with TDP set at 75% with a undervolt. No max fan speed either. Both cards happily around 55-60C. Heck, don't people around here keep asking if 65-75C or higher while gaming with air cooling is safe?
  15. One provider is sure not competition. Anyway, I given up on ISPs doing anything useful. Hell, AT&T's so call Rural Network Plan is pure hogwash. Pretty much, I said crap it. I am going to get a high end SIM router that can take any SIM (so crap any one provider to try to lock me in) and smack two high gain Yagi Antennas to it. I seen other individuals in the country side going this route and having some nice results. Seriously, it is bad when I just watched videos of other Americans doing some crazy hacks to things like AT&T's Mobiley (you can hack it to work outside a vehicle), using microwave shots, antennas, and other setups just to get unlimited Internet at good speeds and not be raped by prices that local ISPs try to lock them into.
