  1. Yes actually. They've lived in my closet all this time. Send me a DM so we don't crowd this up
  2. My company just wrote off some old Android computers. The computer itself is an industrial panel running Android 4.4.4. Here is the product page https://teguar.com/tp-a945-07-android-panel-pc.html It is not possible to update it beyond that. The OS is baked into a soldered on emmc chip and does not have an accessable boot loader of any kind. The unit has a touchscreen, 2 USB ports, an SD card slot, a micro USB, an ethernet port and a db9 Com port. That's about it. There is no battery, no wifi, no Bluetooth, no Google services, no GPS, no speakers, no cameras, and no physical buttons. It comes with 1GB of RAM and 4GB of storage. It's a very simple computer that is purpose built to only have one function when deployed in an industrial environment. Usually these are programmed to run something like a large conveyer, or a punch clock or a machine or some kind. I don't really know Android well enough to code for it and it doesn't seem overtly useful as is. So I turn to the community. A Co worker of mine suggested he would use his as aa makeshift elgato stream deck. I like that idea alot but I have no idea how we would do it. I also open to other ideas too Let me know what you think. what would you use this for?
  3. I have a Garmin vivoactive HR smart watch. I can set a vibration alarm on it. Actually vibration is actually the only way the watch outputs to the user aside from the screen. The vibration can be a little loud but its far quieter than an audible alarm.
  4. Well dang. It might not be worth it then to rebuy Netflix, and get a VPN if there's that chance that Netflix would just deny it anyway
  5. Really? I had Netflix at one point. it had the same problem as hulu; not uploading content. Wonder why it would be on Netflix Canada but not US. Either way wouldn't a VPN not mix too well with a video stream?
  6. I want to get digital downloads for TV series, Cartoons mainly because I'm ultimately a kid at heart. Before I go forward here, I don't want illegal downloads: They aren't good quality, they can be complicated to obtain, and mainly I actually do enjoy the shows I want to buy and want to support the creators. I currently have Hulu as my only source of TV. They are terrible at uploading the latest content. Im looking for -Avatar the last airbender (one of my all time favorites) -The Legend of Korra (seen some, like it) -Steven Universe -Adventure time I've looked for the individual shows on the internet but its actually surprisingly difficult to find whole seasons for sale in 1080p that aren't on DVDs or Blurays What do you guys think?
  7. Cool that's what I thought, I was just concerned about running different kits at the rated (or close to it) speeds.
  8. Hello, I want to upgrade my system to 32GB of ram for caching as well as just necessity. I currently have this kit https://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Vengeance-3000MHz-Desktop-Memory/dp/B014JESKRW/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1547488679&sr=8-1&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=corsair%2Bvengeance%2Blpx%2B16gb%2Bddr4&dpPl=1&dpID=41AGvSmY-fL&ref=plSrch&th=1&psc=1 If I purchase a second one of these, what is the chances of these working well together? Will I be able to run all 4 of these stickss at their rated 3000mhz speed when paired with a Ryzen 7 1700? Thanks for your time
  9. I'm looking for a new hobby. I like to build and upgrade things to make them faster and perform better. I'm already into PCs, cars, blacksmithing, audio, and electronics. -My PC is already about as good as I need it to be. Any more upgrades will start to see diminishing returns. -My car is in the shop now. Once I pay off the mechanics, I'll likely just leave it alone due to the $3000 cost of the repairs. -Blacksmithing requires a significant amount of time. That being said the place where I have it right now will not be available to me by the end of this year and ill have put all of that stuff into storage. -Audio has the same issue as my pc -Electronics require a need/want to change something and I'm happy with all of my electronics now. I've thought about getting into 3D printing, but I am a bit put off by having to calibrate the machine before each use and having it take multiple hours to complete a small print. Plus the initial startup funds are a bit steep. Wood working and metal working are both things that I am mildly interested in and already do but as I mentioned earlier I will be losing my workspace here soon. What do you think? What hobbies do you have that you work towards to improve in some way?
  10. Sweet. I just placed a bid on a hd60 on eBay. We'll see if that goes anywhere. Can OBS record on my screen? Or would I need a different piece of software to screen capture?
  11. wwowouldn't happen to know whatever I could find a capture card that wasn't too expensive, would you?
  12. That's actually not a bad idea. I could run it all in a VM on my ryzen 7 1700. The issue is that I still have to purchase 1 capture card. Still though, we're on the right track
  13. My girlfriend and I want to start streaming for fun. We want viewers to be able to see both of our point of views at the same time, as well as hear audio from both PCs at once. We would then have just one mic as we are on the a same network in the same room. once everything is said and done I am imagining it would look like a split-screen game from something like a console style game. My issue is that I don't know how to do this with software and we cannot afford capture cards for both computers. I have a spare PC with an old core i7 in it that I want to send both video streams to. From this computer I would then stream to the internet. I have tried to use VLC to stream but cant seem to get that working at all. How would we go about setting this up?
  14. Lol I'm so glad I'm not the only that instantly thought that
  15. The seller said that they never registered it so it very likely still has a warranty. It's definitely worth looking into. I'll have to check tomorrow. If the warranty is not valid I'd like to see if an aftermarket air cooler would fit. Even if the PCB isn't reference (I actually don't know if it is or isn't) I've also contemplated using a CPU cooler and modfiying it to fit. That's a bit of a stretch though.
