      i just uninstalled it about 2hrs ago, not worth it for me as i have very few friends and i don't feel like posting on servers as it's an insane platform as multiple posts come flooded in just in seconds. Might go on their site occasionally through browser incase i want for some reason.

      if you're using the app try turning it off. been having issues lately, waiting for that app to update

  2. Is the Verge kidding with this?! Blaming the Youtubers?!



    I want to address a situation around some YouTube copyright strikes (since retracted) issued by The Verge and Vox Media that has gotten pretty toxic, and could have been avoided if the parties involved had simply reached out to me directly.

    I don't even want to finish reading....

      oof - Verge is garbage :( 

    3. Spotty



      At my direction, the strikes were retracted. Here's the note from YouTube:
      Again, the strikes were retracted at my specific instruction, not through any YouTube dispute process.

      Apparently Kyle's tweet saying that YouTube reviewed the matter and reversed the strike was posted an hour before the email the editor sent to Youtube. So he only retracted the claim AFTER Youtube had already reviewed and reversed it.

    No matter the price of this beast monitor Im getting it.

    Oh. Alright. Thanks for letting us know.
  4. Did you ever end up looking at soft PGS? (Please excuse my lack of photography skills)


    $69, 180mm x 180mm. Convert my entire life from thermal paste to this stuff. I plan to test this stuff out with Peltier plates if you're familiar with those. Then a bunch of future CPUs I plan to buy. High heat output chips. I'd also like to see if direct die cooling on a GPU would be possible. That'd be a real game changer.

      I kind of forgot about looking any further after I finished my TR build.

    2. Windows7ge


      Thought I'd ask out of curiosity. It's not worth it if you only need to cool 1 or 2 things but it's great for numerous large scale projects.

      So 42% APR for that EVGA RTX 2060? Yikes...Amazon has that exact card for $380 right now.

    2. Windows7ge


      Now if only I could get Intel to let me do that for a couple of their $5,000 Xeons. Pay em $50/month each. Long term it'd be worth it.

      How I got my 1060 and Ryzen 2600:

      1. Wait until prices plummet.

      2. Buy buy buy buy buy.

      3. Overclock the frick out of everything.


  7. I bought a new Camera. Sigh.

    Does anyone still have disc drives in their pcs?

    No CD drives in the house including laptops. My X79 office PC has a BD burner, but I'm replacing that soon.

      No, I just annoyed Mortis enough to have it changed back.

  14. There's such a weird phenomenon in the PC community. Whenever you post a Mac anywhere, it is assumed that you've thrown all of your PCs in the trash and denounced the #PCMasterRace. It's so strange. I don't get why people can't use multiple platforms.

      My only spite w/ anything & everything apple is (like with anyone else) the price. Personally compared to other available options I don't feel like what you get is worth the premium.


      Now if ALL PCs, laptops, towers, NUCs, etc & Android devices and Others were equal in cost to a Mac or iPhone then the pedestal that people look up at of everyone who loves everything apple would be a lot shorter or non-existant which is the reason people think all Apple users are strictly Apple users. Everyone thinks if you're willing to pay the premium then you're not going to dirty yourself with the cost effectiveness of a PC.

      I am simply very inexperienced on MacOS. Maybe it is good if you are used to it, but since I'm not, it's rather annoying to use when I do use a Mac. I think I sometimes forget that the annoyance I have is sort of my own doing and not the OS. As for non Mac or Windows operating systems, I think Linux is wonderful, but not great for my main computer, and Android is great for phones.


      Also, I have the classic yet modern power and styling of the TI-84 PLUS! Who needs a color display or more pixels? Not me! I am content with the classic look of glorious 96x64 resolution! All this, and so much more modern than the TI83: 2004 vs 1996, which would you choose? Retails for only 39.78873577297383394222094084312859... payments of pi$

      @OJTheAviator I perfectly understand why people have issues with Apple, Mac OS, and Mac based products. My gripe is that I can't be seen in public with Apple stuff without being branded as part of the Apple "cult."
