  1. where my boomers at

    1. Tech_Dreamer


      probably drunk & doozy after the whole Superbowl thing.

  2. I'm not entirely sure they're comparable. They fulfil different roles in the tech youtuber community.
  3. who decided to make amiibos worth hella bread

      i guess it means i can resell mine for some nice profits at least

  4. man i just bought a wii u but now my grandparents are sleeping in the same room that it occupies so i can't even use it.


    why would they choose now to come

      Take the gamepad, walk nothing more than 10 meters away and you can play it!

      it sorta works in my works in my living room but the connection is spotty

  5. my favorite part of this forum was when the experiences with non techies thread got off topic arguing for like 100 pages about whether or not the mass of hard drives change as they're used

  6. update: modding oblivion is even worse than fallout new vegas


    why did i think this was a good idea.

  7. There are plenty of legal ways to get paid products for free (see: giveaways, sweepstakes, competitions). And also +1 for Linux gaming. I'm using Linux and am currently playing modded Oblivion.
  8. Modding bethesda games on linux is fun whenever something is wrong you get to ask yourself: Is it the game? Or the mod? Or Mod Organizer? Or Wine? What if I update one of these? Oh, nevermind, turns out the only mod organizer version that runs properly is 1.4 and below. However scripted installers are broken in version past 0.93.  Then it turns out MO support for oblivion is just a turd.


    I have more fun installing mods than i do playing games.

      Linux at its finest.

  9. remember when ltt was produced out of a house with server equipment in the bathroom


    those were fun days

      i guess that's because he's legitimately excited about the idea, and he actually managed to find a semi-decent implementation for it with the video editing workstation.


      on that note, it's not practical at all, but i feel like once the concept matures enough it may become a thing lan centers use, just to have less seperate boxes to manage.


      for example, if dreamhack would replace the computers they bring to LAN events by 6-seat machines, they could just put one in the middle of a table, hook up 6 sets of peripherals, and one network uplink. that's basicly saving them 5/6th of the networking setup.

      i mean its practical at scale, this is what cloud computing is. When you rent an AWS server your not renting a physical box, just a virtual one on top of a physical that's running multiple virtual machines. That concept doestn really work at this scale though, not when every user is utilizing all the hardware allotted to them and there's no resource surplus. Really this is just cloud gaming, something both Nvidia and Google are providing solutions for. The only difference is it's on a small cloud and as i previously elaborated earlier cloud computing is only an attractive option with a large userbase. As for dreamhack, i can't imagine attendees ever jumping at that option, you'd lose the part of lan parties where you flex your build which is a big part imo.

      at this scale it's mostly a matter of "how many network cables" and "how many kensington locks"

  10. someting many aren't mentioning is that eight generation consoles (with the exception of Nintendo Switch) are x86 platforms, so we may see emulators rise faster than the previous generation.
  11. Let me break this down further: sudo means "Super User DO" and is equivalent to selecting "run as administrator" on Windows, it allows executing programs as privileged user with the ability to modify anything on the system.. Be careful when any using it as you can do some serious damage to your machine sudo'ing things willy nilly <pm> install. On linux, you don't (typically) install software by hunting down programs from the bowels of the internet. Instead, you'll use a package manager, which handles dependency resolution, downloading, and installing software (called packages). Of course just like on Windows, installing software is a privileged action, so using sudo is required. Another note, not all package managers will use "install": pacman, the arch linux package manger, uses pacman -S (for Sync) to install a package. Common package managers are apt (Ubuntu, and derivatives like Mint, Pop!_OS), dnf (Red Hat family of distributions like RHEL, Fedora, and CentOS). rm removes files and directories. Be careful when combining with sudo as you can delete critical system files. ssh stands for Secure SHell, really quick lesson the shell: When you open up a terminal in Linux, you're interacting with the shell, it's essentially a "glue" that takes your input and finds the associated program. ssh allows for starting a shell on a remote system, so any commands you type in will be run on that box instead. ls - LiSt - lists files and directories in a directory. This comand also accepts a path, so if you want to see the files in a directory other than the one you're working you would do ls /path/to/directory cd - Change Directory - change the directory to a specified path. this command accepts relative paths, or paths based on the directory the shell is working in at the moment. For example, if you're in the home directory (/home/user) and you want to change to your pictures folder you could do cd Pictures or cd /home/user/Pictures from an entirely separate directory. man <command> - MANual - presents the manual page on a command or topic if it exists. Unfortunately, documentation on Linux is not a strong point compared to other unix (like)s, and, while they may be technically comprehensive,are often too impractical for quickly finding information on specific practical uses. A "directory" is the same thing as a folder, a folder merely makes a good analogy for browsing them graphically. If you want brief information on a command, many respond to the -h or --help switch. for example: ls --help brings up information on how to use ls and available switches.
  12. why the heck does the ltt forums syntax highlighter have LaTeX but not bash

  13. vnc really isn't worth using these days. something like NoMachine, freeNX, or XRDP
  14. ok but how is a bug small enough to fit in the first place. as far as taking it apart, is there a seam around the display? the back is probably held on by clips
  15. wow you sure did give us a lot of info to work with.

  18. If Microsoft continues to lock down Windows, AAA developers and users will start moving to Linux quicker.
  19. Earlier this month Valve removed the Steam store page for Steam Machines, prebuilt computers running SteamOS, a Linux distribution built for gaming. This removal symbolizes the death of Steam Machines, which failed to ever really be relevant due to their lack of media attention, and the fact that many times they were underpowered. Though steam machines are no more, they did gve a nice platform to market SteamOS, a product that Valve is continuing to develop today, and will continue to support in the future. Over the last few years, Valve has been a large supporter of Linux gaming, to the point that AMD now has excellent open source drivers, and companies like Aspyr Media and Feral interactive have begun porting AAA titles like Rise of the Tomb Raider and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided to Linux. It's because of their past dedication that I don't believe Valve has any intention on giving up on Linux gaming, especially with the direction Microsoft is going with Windows for the last several years.
  20. Did that guy who ran the Lenny crew.disckrd server get banned or something? I can't view his profile.

  22. Maybe if I can find a deal on an AMD card. Right now the 750ti does what I need (I'm playing fairly old games right now) so the only reason to upgrade would be a blower style cooler (which is better for small cases like to his one) and better driver support on Linux.
