  1. You're a bit fuzzy on your facts. The 2nd Amendment (the right to keep, and bear arms) was enacted on Dec. 15th, 1791, not in the 1800's. It had absolutely nothing to do with "sporting" usage. It had to do with self-defense, and defense of the state (militias). It was influenced by the British Bill of Rights which became common law in 1689. The Supreme Court ruled that this right was not immune from regulation. I would think, as a Canadian (based solely on your name), that you would be aware of the fact that Canada has more gun ownership per capita than the USA, and yet a fraction of the deaths from guns. Here in the US, a large part of the problem is the society we have created. We need stronger regulations, but to attempt to completely disarm the public, this late in the game, would result in a civil war, or revolution. The politicians (mostly on the right) are heavily lobbied, and financed by the NRA. Trump received 50 million in campaign contributions from them. No current politician is going to turn down that kind of money just because we (the peasants) are being slaughtered. Their kids go to private schools, and live in gated communities with armed guards. It's going to take a great effort on the part of the citizens to overcome these obstacles, and force reasonable regulation on the sale, and transfer of guns. Guns are power, and people like to feel empowered. I fear nothing will be done about this, and if anything is done it will take a very long time. Wish us luck, we need it.
  2. It sounds like your problem is with TeamSpeak, not whatever game you're playing. Open TeamSpeak, select tools, then options. Check to make sure that your Playback, and Capture devices are set properly. You can then use the test features in Playback/Capture to make sure they are working. I've had issues with TeamSpeak recognizing my headset, but would only work with the default "automatically use best mode" setting, so I would recommend playing around with those settings.
  3. I think it's possible. I would be very OCD about drying everything out. Remove every part to dry them. RAM, CPU, everything. Be very careful with the power supply. I normally advise people not to disassemble them. I do, but I'm comfortable handling high voltage electronics due to my profession. Just disassemble every component to the best of your abilities, and dry everything fully. There's no guarantee, but I would try it if I couldn't afford to replace it. If nothing else, you might salvage some of the components. Sorry for your troubles. That's a rough thing to deal with. Hope you were able to salvage any family and/or sentimental keepsakes. A lot of those things cannot be replaced. Best of luck.
  4. Outstanding job, especially since you mentioned it's mostly built out of spare parts. Very clean looking. Your brother should not only be very happy, but should be treating you like a god (pun directed at your name). I hope he appreciates all the hard work, and thought that went in to the build. Great job.

    Water Spilled

    I have spilled water, coffee, and soda on keyboards over the years. This is what I do. Disconnect it from your PC. Disassemble the keyboard as far as you are comfortable doing. Even taking the top cover off will help in the drying process. If you don't take it apart, shake it robustly to remove any excess liquid/ Dry it with a towel, or paper towels as much as you can. Let it sit for a couple days, in a warm dry place.
  6. Dual Channel Memory allows for a faster data transfer rate between the RAM, and the Memory Controller (CPU). On a motherboard with only two ram slots, one slot will use one channel, and the other slot will use the other channel. If the Motherboard has four ram slots, one channel will use two slots (A1 and A2), and the second channel will use the other two slots (B1 and B2).
  7. I had problems with VLC also. I use 5KPlayer for DVD's. Easy to install, use, and it's free. https://www.5kplayer.com/ For Blu-ray I use Leawo. Also easy to install, use, and it's free. http://www.leawo.com/blu-ray-player/
  8. Mine don't show up either. It just lists the Motherboard audio. I share your view that these are really bad headsets. My dongle mute button worked exactly once. Using the volume control causes a lot of static, and is too sensitive. I set it at a level that doesn't cause static, and then use the volume control on my keyboard (luckily it actually has one). They are also heavy, and uncomfortable to wear for very long. The sound quality is worse than any of my other headphones, and endless hours of "fixes" I tried haven't improved them at all. Good luck, I feel your pain. I feel like I got ripped off. They weren't cheap either. I'll never buy anything from this company again.
  9. There are a variety of extension cables for wireless antenna. Here's a link for example purposes only: https://www.bing.com/shop?q=wireless+antenna+cable+extension&FORM=SHOPPA&originIGUID=FC112FC49357488CA3466F9BDB1AF494
  10. What version of Windows are you running? 32-bit, or 64-bit? If it's 32-bit it will only recognize a maximum of 4gb of RAM. If this is not the issue, please include more information about your hardware. What motherboard, etc. would be very helpful.
  11. 1.5 meters? X .5 meters? or am I reading that wrong? You're going to have a hard time finding an LCD screen that large, that isn't a monitor, and that is an odd aspect ratio for a monitor. I know they make programmable LED signs that large, and probably with that aspect ratio. I would recommend a google search of commercial signage companies. Be prepared for this to be expensive, unless you can find a used one.
  12. Disconnect your boot drive, then start up. It will put you into bios. After you're in bios make sure it's not set for ultra-fast boot.
  13. Could possibly be a loose magnet. A poor wire connection usually will cause some sort of static. A magnet could be moving around as you tilt your head, causing a deterioration of sound volume. Good luck repairing them. I've tried several repairs on headphones/headsets, and most were not successful except for temporary (until I could replace them) use. A lower end pair are likely to be glued, not screwed. Good luck.
  14. Perhaps a long way from being practical, but a worthy effort. Students attempting such an endeavor will learn invaluable problem solving skills, and possibly extend research that will someday improve the capabilities of solar power. I've watched this race many times in the past years. Good job Stanford for a respectable 9th place finish, in a race where finishing at all is an accomplishment.
  15. If you're going to build a new PC, disregard my reply. I'm not going to tell you to build a new car before putting a new radio in the one you own. In response to your original question, both of these monitors get decent reviews: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01H5KKRLO?tag=gamingbuffinner-20 https://pcpartpicker.com/product/dhbp99/asus-monitor-vn247hp
