    The AMA

    Hi all. Bet you didn't know this place existed So I've decided to run an ongoing AMA for no real reason than to let others find out more about me and I feel like I need to open up a bit more in life, and since i spend so much time here, might as well start here. It's hopefully a way to deal with my shyness RL by letting others "as me anything" and help me build confidence, plus i still have some form of anonymity so i'm more likely to share things here that i wouldn't with people work with, are friends with RL Etc. So in effect you're kind of helping me There's three ways you can do this. Send me a PM here on the forums if you don't mind the question(s) being attributed to you If you would prefer to remain anonymous with your question(s), you can send an email to Arika.ama@gmail.com. Leave it as a comment at the bottom of this entry. Obviously other people will be able to see your question I will endeavor to respond to every question as accurately as possible without revealing too much about my identity as I still intend to keep a disconnect between real life and online. Some questions may be unanswered depending on what was asked, ie too personal. If such a question is received, i will still respond, but just saying that it will not be answered. So you can ask my Anything, but not everything will receive an answer. Appropriate questions and answers will be put on this blog. Unless otherwise specified, I will not indicate who asked the question i will just list it and the answer. You can ask as many questions as you like. ~Arika Questions and Answers will be listed below. ------------------ The Basics Name: Erica S (that's all you're getting) Age: 27 (At time of posting) Gender: Female Nationality: Australian Answered Questions: Do you have any pets?: I have 1 cat, and she is a brat, but i love her. What is your favorite video game genre and how has it impacted your life? Has it taught you a valuable lesson or skill?: Definitely Simulation, and maybe as weird as it sounds, the one that has impacted me the most was Eurotruck Simulator 2. I have a much greater respect for trucks on the road while i'm driving. I used to hate driving around or behind them, but now i understand them a bit more. What brought you to this forum, and what keeps you here compared to other forum?: It started when i was researching what laptop to purchase. But I do this thing where i research too much and the longer it lakes the less likely i am to pick something and just go with it. So i wanted to get other people's opinions instead of just reading reviews and the manufacturer support forums. I never intended to stick around, but the longer i stayed the more i started learning about different things regarding technology. Plus there's some good people on this forum so i decided to stick around, and 3000 posts later, here i am :D What’s your occupation ?: My official Job title is "Senior Team Member" which is generic as hell. I work at a fairly large financial institution in a "call centre" department that is specifically for supporting the rest of our staff, mainly the branches, but sometimes we deal with other departments. Basically if the branch doesn't know a process, policy, requirements, guidelines etc, they will generally call us. We're basically Google within our organisation if you could call them up to ask questions and steal less of your information. We don't deal directly with customers. Biggest fear besides social contact: As cliché as it might be; Death. It's just the uncertainly of it, not the event. How will it happen? When will it happen? What will happen to the loved ones I leave behind? (this being the main one)

    Steam scammers on the rise

    you dont have to be a tech-head to realize you're being scammed by being asked for your password. thats like common sense 101
  5. This entire game seemed to be marketed to new players which is pushing away existing players. Also who are these people that want to play a BF game but think it's too hard?
  6. So does this just generate an image or a 3d model that can be used in movies/tv etc?

    Steam scammers on the rise

    literally every service that exists with a chat feature says "never give out your password to anyone" as soon as you open the chat window on steam it says that, and when dealing with your account it says "we will never ask for your username and password". steam has so many safeguards that it's not like a "whoops"

    and the advice would be: you need to manage your money better
  9. So i'm thinking of starting to have digital copies of Movies, TV shows, etc instead of relying on streaming services that lose licenses, aren't available in my country etc. However my PC is an m-ITX and i have 0 room to put any more hard drives. So i need options of the best way to connect more HDDs to my PC, either a multi-bay enclosure, a stack of separate enclosures/external hard-drives. I did consider a NAS, but i don't necessarily want the entire thing shared on the network. If i get a multi-bay enclosure, i want it to be able to take 2.5" drives and be hot-swappable/tooless so i can pull a drive out, throw it in a portable enclosure and connect it to my TV/laptop/tablet so i can use it anywhere.

    Yu-gi-oh playmat

    Any place that would restrict something like that is not a place I would want to hang out. That's like super snobby arrogance. Edit : as long as it's not porn/adult obviously

    Will this work? Plugging appliances inquiry

    i have no idea what im looking at. but it's not really recommended to plug in any powerboard/double adapter into another powerboard/double adapter. You would be better off just getting a couple of powerboards with a built in surge protector (and connect each one to a different wall socket). to many devices connected to it could just trip it because of the amount of current you're trying to draw from a single socket
