  1. who are some leaders known for their amnesty/kindness/loyalty?

  2. Well, I ended up booting into windows either way, but this red light is still on
  3. I never updated my bios (MSI b150m arctic ), until now i downloaded the latest update, went to m-flash and updated it. It went to boot windows, and then it said “repairing errors” and then it said “could not fix errors”. I clicked on advanced options and boot windows again, and now it’s been booting for around 15 minutes (normally takes 20-30), but there seems to be a bright red light right next to the top PCIE slot (there seems to be no name next to it) did I mess something up?
  4. Is the Intel 660p (1tb) worth it for $82?

      @dizmo What would you recommend?

      SX 8200 Pro, HP EX 9x0, something along those lines. They're usually around the same price.

      @dizmo thank you!

  5. Thank you, but handbrake takes wayyy to long to the point where its just worth going over the videos manually and clearing some out. Ty for the info though
  6. Well I found out it takes around 30 minutes per gb. (200 hrs for all).
  7. My hard drive has around 1GB left, so I want to compress the ~400GB of videos I have. Would there be any way to select all the files in a folder, and as one gets compressed, it replaces the larger one? I using handbreak but I can use something else if necessary Thank you
  8. Why are laser prices so varied? I see $80 for a 5W laser diode, then right under than $55K for a 5W laser.

     

    Then I go on laser websites and they advertise 50W for $300???

      If you are planning to buy a laser I'd strongly suggest learning all the necessary safety information first.  They can pose a risk to many things around you, most significantly, your eyes.  The more powerful a beam is the more dangerous obviously, as it can cause damage more quickly, and even indirect observations (just seeing the dot or even just the beam through the air reflected in dust) may be damaging.  Some other important considerations that are not intuitive include but are not limited to:

      • Green lasers are not really green, they are made by using an IR laser and then frequency shifting it.  Good quality ones have a filter to remove any unconverted IR, but poor quality ones will not, and this is bad because it is just as dangerous as lasers you can see, except you can't even see it.
      • Building on that point, unexpected refractions or reflections can take the beam in directions you did not anticipate or plan for.  Remember that different wavelengths (colours) may take different paths.

      @Ryan_Vickers I couldn't really find any out any concise source on this stuff, thanks for the help :D

  9. 1TB m.2 SSD for $100... Wow

      Apparently the SX8200 Pro has dropped below $90 at points.

      I just keep telling myself not to buy one 😛
      I might hold off upgrading my rig for a bit, since it seems to run CoD....well enough.

  10. How much cheaper are HDD/SSDs? I haven't been paying attention for like a year, but last time it was around $50 for 1tb HDD or 120gb SSD

      My 8tb has dropped from 350 to 250€ in a year, quite a big drop.

       

      But low end stuff has stayed the same, while high end stuff gets cheaper.

      Have you seen the 16TB hdd prices? Crazy.

       

      Ssds also, high capacity has dropped.

  11. Aren’t the USB ones really bad? I have one and it cost me $12 and it doesn’t even work.
  12. So my powerline just gave in and I can’t run Ethernet across the room, so I need a WiFi card Ive learnt my lesson from cheaping out on network hardware, so the budget is ~$100 (at max) All the card needs to do is to be reliable, and have a good warranty. The speed I have right now is 250 Mb/s, so what would be the best internal card?
  13. It didn’t work, still no HomePlug light. Is there anything I can do? It just stopped randomly i did get a new router yesterday, but I don’t think that’s it
