  1. Using 1 computer in two rooms (not simultaneous)

    There's a million different ways to go about this. It all depends on what you are willing/able to do. Can you move your PC so that it's equidistant? If so, you can mitigate a long cable run for two shorter ones for display. Wireless Keyboard and Mouse should be fine for your needs, right? 15 meters really isn't that far. You can run cables under carpet, over doorways, or through walls without cutting if you need to.
  2. You can install as many OS's as your SD card will hold. No reformatting required. It allows you the chance to try out different OS's at your leisure without the commitment.
  3. For what it's worth, I highly recommend berryboot as the boot loader to install on your SD card. It will give you lots of distros to choose from. Just make sure you connect an ethernet cable at boot.
  4. The pace of obsolescence.

    Necessity is the mother of invention. Storage solutions are seeing advancements now as much as they ever have. This makes sense because average consumers have the need for TBs of fast access storage. CPU advancements seem marginal, until you look at what the average consumer needs. What games or programs are being released that require vast improvements to consumer CPU power? The user case that comes up the most often that I see is, "I want to game and stream on the same box". You can do that currently without the need for cutting edge hardware. You've to find ridiculous LTT setups to find a real need for better CPUs (20 gamers 1 CPU). Video editing is is the one area I can see consumers really lacking for vast improvements, but that market is still smaller than the gaming market that tends to drive demands for more performance.
  5. SanDisk announces 400GB MicroSD cards

    It sucks that many of the devices I would use this in don't support capacities that large. i think the limit on my security camera is like 32GB
  6. I really want 8k to be pushed so that the prices for quality 4k displays become cheap. Display manufacturers are trying to get us to spend money on HDR and other features that aren't fully supported... Just give us those pixels and everything else will follow. Except internet speeds. i I don't want to think about trying to stream 8k content with some of these ISPs.
  7. @ARikozuMconfirmed my assertion. Well done.
  8. Night theme user here... I couldn't read the entire post, but here's a counter argument in favor of digital devices and media: The proliferation of digital media, such as YouTube, is seeing a larger group of young people publishing their own media. Twitch and YouTube especially incentivize good public speaking and communication skills in order to build viewership. Kids are learning broadcast skills at younger ages. Then we have public message boards, such as LTT, that are well moderated. Those without the ability to communicate clearly are quickly ostracized. in short, I would say that effective digital communication demands a higher skill set than "old ass doomsayers" would suggest. 😀
  9. Inb4 damage control statement from Verizon. expect a mass exodus by customers who at least have a choice.
  10. The CHEAPEST PC Case on the Market

    As other people have said, this looks pretty awesome for some sort of raspberry pi project. its large enough to cut some holes for buttons, switches, etc. ive spent the same amount for super tiny boxes that barely give me room to do anything.
  11. Night theme on linus tech tips

    "One of us, ONE OF US!" 😀
  12. Putting a PC in a closet?

    you said 9 feet wide, 9 feet tall, 14 inches deep?
  13. Some guy got a blade stealth

    I would NOT let them "repair" that laptop for $700..
  14. No Creative. Never again. My onboard sound actually works in Linux.
  15. I called this in another thread! given the high price, and the disappointing benchmarks/lack thereof last month, I figured there had to be AN AREA where AMD could tout a benefit. The blind tests didn't seem compelling at all, which only left mining results. Mining performance is the new gaming performance. As long as a GPU manufacturer can claim significant mining results over the competition, the cards will sell very well. Well done AMD if these results are accurate.
