    WeeemRCB reacted to Eigenvektor in Can't get HAXM working for Android Studio (on AMD)   
    HAXM is made by Intel. For AMD there should be a new API in Windows: https://www.infoq.com/news/2018/07/android-emulator-amd-hyperv/
     
    ~edit: Also see here: https://developer.android.com/studio/run/emulator-acceleration#choose-windows-hypervisor
      Criteria Hypervisor You have an Intel processor and do not need to run Hyper-V at the same time as the Android Emulator. Use Intel HAXM. You have an Intel processor and do need to run Hyper-V at the same time as the Android Emulator. Use WHPX. You have an AMD processor. Use WHPX.

    WeeemRCB reacted to colonel_mortis in Hiding an image URL...   
    A simple solution would be to have another PHP file on your server that proxies the image. That script would look something like
    <?php $webcamImageUrl = "http://111.111.111.111/snapshot.jpeg"; $curlRequest = curl_init(); curl_setopt($curlRequest, CURLOPT_URL, $webcamImageUrl); curl_setopt($curlRequest, CURLOPT_HEADER, false); // Don't include the response headers in the result curl_setopt($curlRequest, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true); // Return the body of the requested resource curl_setopt($curlRequest, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 10); // Timeout if it takes > 10s $imageData = curl_exec($curlRequest); if (curl_error($curlRequest)) { http_response_code(500); echo "Error: " . curl_error($curlRequest); exit; } header("Content-Type: " . curl_getinfo($curlRequest, CURLINFO_CONTENT_TYPE)); echo $imageData; That could be improved by caching the image on disk so it doesn't get requested too often.
     
    PHP isn't the ideal language for this because it has to load the whole image into memory before it can send it back to the user, but it should be good enough for your use case.

    They paid to use it once.
    If they can get a perpetual license then it will likely be permanent.

    WeeemRCB got a reaction from Kilrah in Swapping boot drive to new computer   
    It'll be OEM, so probably not transferable.
     
    3 options.
    1) You could try to transfer it. If you align it with a Microsoft account then when you move you might be able to transfer the license. If yes, then it's a bit of a hoohah (takes 10 mins or so with a lot of typing of codes), but if it works then you transfer the license.
     
    2) You could run it as "unlicensed".
    You can't customise the installation, but if it's already customised then those settings will stay.  You just can't change them (wallpaper etc)
     
    3) You can pick up a license from eBay or Amazon at a ... competitive price.

    With Afterburner I've lowered the Power Limit, Core Clock and Memory Clock on my GPU so it runs cool without much loss in Cuda processing and so I can still do my day job at the same time. I can still crank out a WU every couple hours like this

    WeeemRCB got a reaction from ShrimpBrime in Help needed controlling CPU Voltage : MSi 450 + 3700x   
    Yea. You and me .... same idea
    My gaming PC has an Asus Strix X99 with an i7-6850 which I overclocked no problem. (4.7Mhz stable, 4.3Mhz for daily use)
     
    I only went for the MSI as the ASUS B450 boards were trashed in the Motherboard Tier List thread  and MSI recommended instead.
     
    Here's the follow-up from MSI Support.
    I contacted them with the subject "How to control Multiplier and voltage of CPU" explaining that the voltage was all over the place and I looked all through the bios and couldn't see where the options were for me to OC/UC it myself.
    Their reply was:
    Thanks for contacting MSI technical support.
    Regarding your concern, we are sorry, but would you please adjust the options CPU ratio and CPU voltage in BIOS for a try?
     
    Like ... yea?
    So I replied saying that's what I wanted to do and asked them how to do that in the their Lite BIOS as I couldn't see where the settings were.
    They replied:
    We are sorry, can you find them in BIOS-->Overclocking?
     
    ... 5 minutes later and I had an RMA to Amazon and a new ASUS ROG Strix B450-I Gaming on its way (comes today ..wooo  )

    Return the board.
    I reccomend Asus Rog B450-I Gaming for replacement. Best ITX board you can throw money at.
    Built in Blue Tooth and Wifi. Has the color flashy stuff. Fully unlocked over feature packed bios o.c. such as SenseMi Skew and SenseMi offset. And of course, ROG swag.

    WeeemRCB reacted to mariushm in The best way to clean a keyboard is… the DISHWASHER?   
    I clean my keyboard by unscrewing the bottom, removing the circuit board (and anything electronic) followed by using the shower head jets with some warm water to clean everything plastic.
    I can also unscrew the shower head and partially block the water hose to create a powerful jet that can go under the keys and clean crap from under keys.
     
    Once done, it's just a matter of natural drying (or using a hair dryer at some distance from the plastic so it won't get too hot) and dry out the plastics, and reassemble everything.

    It would be really cool if they started signing their work (as Taran suggested from @ 23:29) so the guys become less invisible.
     
    Maybe not in the video itself as end credits, but have the main scriptwriter, presenter, camera and editor (and others) in the video description area below the video.
    That would be pretty sweet.

    WeeemRCB got a reaction from Lady Fitzgerald in Upgrade HDD to SSD   
    Macrium Reflect is a brilliant tool to do it.
    I've done it a couple times and you don't have to power off the machine which is great (unlike older solutions like Symantec Ghost which runs from a boot CD)
     
    It's free for home/personal use and worst case scenario - it doesn't work so you plug your old drive back in and have another go.
    It's been 100% for me so far (win7 and win10)

    You could use the 970 as a dedicated method of recording game footage (using OBS)
    Not streaming, but offloading a high bitrate NVENC recording so that it doesn't interfere with your CPU/GPU gameplay.

    WeeemRCB got a reaction from Windows Helps in Pi-Hole Setup Tutorial   
    I did the HTTPS DNS change with no problems and moved on to this task to make sure things stay as snappy as possible, but ran into an error when attempting the sample inputs:
    iptables/1.8.2 Failed to initialize nft: Protocol not supported  
    In case anyone else has this problem, it looks like installing NFTables + a reboot fixes the problem
    sudo apt-get install nftables After a reboot I was able to add them adding "sudo" before each command
     
    One thing I noted was the save function didn't work, but after looking at the man pages for iptables, iptables-save and iptables-apply, this seemed to work for me on Raspbian lite:

    sudo iptables-save -f /etc/network/iptables.up.rules

    WeeemRCB got a reaction from _StrikE_ in Post Your Battle Stations and Build Setups!   
    It's 10 years since my last desktop build (i7-920) so I decided to update to some new hardware.
    The desktop before that one I was manually setting the IRQ's ... to give you an idea of how often I upgrade
     
    So, I did a lot of research on new technology using the techtuber channels (mainly LTT) to feed my knowledge and here it is - finished today.
    Technically I'd finished it about 2 weeks ago, but I was waiting aaaages for separate fan filters to come before I could fit them, wire up the fans and move it under my desk.
     
    CPU: i7-6850K for rendering, photos + gaming (I found one for only £20 more than a 6800K)
    Motherboard: ASUS Strix X99 Gaming
    RAM: 32Gb Corsair Vengeance LPX 3200Mhz (4x8Gb)
    GPU: ASUS STRIX GTX1080Ti + 2x140mm Noctua PWM
    Case: Phanteks EVOLV ATX + 1x140mm Noctua FLX
    Storage: 500Gb 960Evo NVMe, 2x500Gb (Raid0) 850 Evo SSD
    PSU: EVGA 850 P2
    Cooling: Corsair Hydro H115i + 2x140mm Noctua PWM
    Display: NEC Multisync PA271w
    Keyboard: Corsair Gaming CG K70 RGB
    Mods: Small clear perspex tube to support the GPU
     
    The 6850k has a mild overclock to 4.3GHz and the memory is running just shy of 3200k at 3160.
    Cinebench 15 returns a CPU score between 1296 - 1310  and GPU an easy 176fps (with no O/C)
     
     
    Originally I had 4 fans on the 115i in push/pull, but the GPU would get warm during gaming and I knew the airflow could be better.
    So I took the 2 push fans off the 115i and mounted them at the top of the case to blow down on the GPU (+ to increase the internal pressure in the case). The STRIX has 2 fan headers which they connect to so it now gets a downdraft when it needs it and the internal temps are lower with the increased cool intake.
     
    It's kinda annoying that Phanteks provide the radiator tray at the top, but no filtration of any type up there like it has on the front and PSU grills.
    I had to get some separately from eBay to cover the top fans and I cover/tape off the rest of the gaps in the radiator tray so to minimise circulating warm air from the internals.
     
    In it's final form
