  1. @jakkuh_t I would like to apologize if this isn't appropriate of me to ask but it's a subject of matter I cannot get my head around it... so if there's any chance you could give me a bit of attention on the subject that would be highly appreciated.

     

    I don't think this falls against our Forum's CS given it's more a matter of policy than moderation though if any one from staff feels it's inappropriate I understand taking this down.

     

    So one of the hot topics lately has been the Corona Virus and it's repercussion/consequences and this very same subject has as expected pop up on the LTT Official discord server due to the possibility of impacting prices on computer components from China.

     

    I decided to make a remark how I also believe there could be an impact due to not being able to ship some shoes samples for lab testing in Yiwu City - China which is part of my work, happens that all couriers have suspended services to China due to the outbreak.

     

    Now to my surprise despite the subject being discussed quite extensively my reply was filtered as follows:

    I personally fail to understand why when it's not a profanity or anything of the sort and discussing a matter that goes in line with the server's rules shouldn't be qualified as a ban-able offence I was honestly a bit perplexed.

     

    Unfortunately there's no place on the server itself to ask the reasoning behind it;

    I thought that maybe there could be a proper feedback in here what led to this decision?

      Instead of 'coronavirus' say 'nCoV', unless that's in their filter too.

      I would like to point out that Momo has reached me out and all has been properly clarified.

       

      I am very thankful that this has led to such a friendly and professional conclusion, I'm always proud of being part of this community ^^

  5. Watching the Ray Tracing on/off side by side comparisons of this new game "Control" I never thought I'd say this but...

     

    In some instances the Ray Traced scene looks less realistic than the vanilla rasterization version.

     

    This is not even accounting for the whooping 50% decrease in performance but you know, not every damn water puddle is a freaking mirror in real life.

     

    Ray Traced reflections is the less meaningful implementation of DXR (much prefer global ilumination) and in some cases devs are forcing it so much down our throats with water everywhere and mirror like reflections that it looks worse and less realistic than the rasterization version.

    1. Mira Yurizaki

      I would argue that it's unrealistic from a "why would this ever be here in the first place?" point of view, but not from an actually physically unrealistic point of view. Keep in mind where we're coming from and what the new thing is trying to improve.

       

      As a semi-related example, people were so used to being able to hear softer sounds mixed in with gun shots and explosions that they thought Frostbite's audio mixing engine was bugged and couldn't keep up because the mixing engine would cut off quieter sounds if loud sounds were going off near you.

      The RT cores are revolutionary for 3D animation, not sure why NVidia pushed for the gaming route.

  6. How to completely destroy our office workflow:

    We use a "NAS" to store all our sensitive files as it auto backup and all that redundancy stuff, so all PCs share a master folder on LAN where we store all the paperwork.

     

    It's really nothing fancy just something I setup myself since cost savings etc...

     

    Now we just got back from lunch and the master fold was offline, what come? went to check the PC and yep Microsoft decided that was the best time to update to Windows 1903... been waiting half hour already and it is stuck on 27%.

    The entire office is doing nothing right now lol

      I use WUB on my Veeam proxy servers. They MUST be Windows.

      I do that, then just update them when it's convenient for me.

  7. I have been using DuckDuckGo for 2 days now since Google has changed their UI on G.Images.

     

    I honestly feel like I won't be returning to Google, DuckDuckGo is basically it but more simple and straight forwards I really liked it so far... not to mention its images search functions more like Google's old design which I prefer.

     

    Tried some Bing as well but god damn Microsoft really can't get it to be appealing at all can it?

      duckduckgo is great. i've used it for a long time along with google.

       

      i still use google when i want to find stuff like drivers for a piece of hardware from the 90's or something stupid like that. google is still better at obscure searches in my experience.

  8. I had no idea about this, but did you know nVidia Control Panel is no longer part of nVidia's driver?

     

    If you don't have it already installed from previous drivers the only way to get it now is through the Windows Store... the only way.

     

    What in the world is this? What the hell is going on with PC world!?

     

    Damn I need a new hobby.

      I think it has something to do with something called NVIDIA DCH drivers vs Standard. https://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/4777/~/nvidia-dch%2Fstandard-display-drivers-for-windows-10-faq

       

      Need to read over it but it looks like if you have to use DCH drivers, you can't use the old NVIDIA control panel

      Also further investigation leads me to find DCH is a Windows thing ?

      That makes sense. The majority of our desktop visits are on larger screens, but I will try to keep smaller screens in mind both while evaluating this and for future features.

    3. AluminiumTech

      I also take issue with the links but not for the same reasons.

       

      1. LTT Merch Link

      LTT Merch shipping prices are awful and even the most loyalist diehard LTT fan isn't going to buy an LTT shirt on the LTT Store website if they live in Europe or Asia or really anywhere which isn't the US or Canada. And so putting that link there without fixing the issues with LTT Store I just mentioned is somewhat insulting. Especially since LMG themselves admit a lot of their audience is international.

       

      2. LTT Discord Link

      There was already an AD showing on the forum saying to checkout the Official LTT Discord and adding a new one in this place feels a bit desperate. Honestly, if the Discord serves the same purpose as the forum I don't really see the need to advertise it on here.

       

      3. Supporting Floatplane Link

      The reason why I dislike this should be fairly obvious, Floatplane is an alpha product and is not ready yet. I wouldn't recommend anybody but diehard fans of a creator on Floatplane purchase a subscription. Perhaps if Floatplane had a free version I would feel differently but Floatplane isn't meant to be free and that's a design decision by LMG.

       

      4. Supporting the Forum Link

      I also dislike this but for completely different reasons than above. None of the subscription options provide meaningful value and don't offer enough features to justify buying. Perhaps if they drastically increase file upload size limit or added a lot more in terms of functionality. As it is right now, if somebody wanted to support LMG then I would always pick paying for Floatplane (with the exceptions mentioned above) or buying merch (with the exceptions mentioned above). The biggest downfall of this is that the subscriptions for the forum offer nothing major in value because by design they were meant to not make non-paying people feel excluded.

    Today my 5 years and 2 months old relationship as come to an end... And it seems it's not reverse-able...

     

    It's like... half of me is gone... so much of my life circled around this relationship... I don't even know what way to take right now...

      Repeat this over and over 

       

      "There is more to life than love"

       

      In the days / weeks / months to come, be sure to do other things that could take your mind off of the break up. And always remind yourself that there are worse problems ahead that you may face and this isn't the only hurdle you need to surpass. Trust me on this one. I've been in your shoes more than once. 

       

       

      One more thing, initiate the "No Contact Rule". Meaning no ANYTHING from your ex. Do not contact the person. Ignore the persons attempts to contact you. This rule is by no means a technique to get him back. It's a technique to make yourself a better person.

       

      Don't even fantasize of you and that person getting back together. 

       

      Keep your feet firm on the ground. No relapses, no wishful thinking. 

       

      I sound harsh to some extent, but this is the reality that you are currently living in. That person is gone in your life. And you shouldn't let yourself be pulled down by what happened.

       

      Easier said than done, right? But at least it's something to start with.

      Staying occupied and instituting/maintaining routine is a must - even the most boring of work can pass time until your grey clouds pass - whatever you do , eat well with healthy food - even try be adventurous in the culinary department with fresh ingredients. Also - take exercise - classes are good like spin, boxercise or gym circuit-training  - they enable you to maintain physical fitness , improve your mental state and can assist your social well-being too. If needed , take counselling to express feelings of hurt , anger, blunted expectations or disappointments - then work with the counsellor to strategise how to overcome dwelling over any negative thoughts and move on. If these non-medicinal techniques are not giving rise to improvements in your mood over a period of say six to eight weeks , then certainly consult your GP (family doctor) to assess for benefits of medical intervention (like oral medications) - hope this helps.

      About a month or two ago I had this wierd glitch in hotmail where it logs you in to this wierd limbo email account that's just jibberish but the interface is fully functional. I don't remember what I did to cause it.

  18. I have been waiting for a native Dark Theme for Windows Explorer since XP days...

     

    I can't believe it's finally here... I didn't think Microsoft would finally let us get rid of blinding white.

      the inconsistency still bugs me a lot. like if you are gonna do a dark theme, do a dark theme. don't do a dark theme, then let me open control panel and be blinded. 

  19. Why must WhatsApp be SO BLOODY AWFUL with probably the worse Desktop version of all IM?

     

     

    I'd rather have Skype or even MSN over this junk, why on earths is this the Brazil's most popular IM? When Telegram and others exist.

  20. Lately a somewhat common habit among LTT users has been triggering me.

     

    Makes thread asking for multiple opinions or suggestion or alternatives to something.

     

    Mark Solved/Best Answer on the very first reply.

  21. Intel shortage seems quite real, on Brazilian retailers the Ryzen 7 1800X is actually selling cheaper than the i5 8400, quite remarkable.

    The Ryzen 7 2700 is priced identically to the left overs of the i5 7600K.

     

    Gee... It is unquestionable where value lays at even when you still rather have Intel under the hood.

  23. Just realized by using it randomly the native windows shortkey windows+tab which I have never really used by favouring straight alt+tab'ing has gotten a lot cooler and appealing now that it shows all previous used files and such in a very quick way to reach them rather than hunting down to it's folder.

     

    Isn't it nice when an update serves for something?
