  1. OK thanks I will try that again.
  2. I figured that's what I would need to do but when I called they told me I needed to reinstall my old windows version. Should I try calling back to see if I get a different answer?
  3. I recently upgrade my Windows 8.1 pro install to Windows 10 pro and everything went fine. A few days ago I need to RMA my motherboard for some hardware problems and switched to a different motherboard, CPU and ram temporarily. This caused my windows 10 install to become non active and required a reactivation. I tried my old windows 8.1 product key as well as using ProduKey to find my windows 10 key and using that. Neither of those worked so I called the support center and entered my install ID and get sent around till someone told me I would have to reinstall windows 8.1 and then upgrade again. That really doesn't work because I would prefer not to do a clean install so does anyone know how I can activate window 10. Also I purchased a retail version of windows so I know for a fact I am in full compliance with the licensing terms. It seems like my only option may be to get a crack for windows 10 if I can't.
  4. Just going to say we don't use vacuums to transport data. Fiber(glass) has a speed of light of 66.67% that of a vacuum and copper ranges from 40%-70%.
  5. OK, thanks for your help
  6. I don't know if this is the right place for this but here it goes. I have been digitizing some of my movies and TV shows using handbrake and was wondering if there is any real disadvantages to using H.265/HEVC other then it being super slow (I assume because of no hardware acceleration). Also I have heard that mkv is better then mp4 but mp4 files seem to be smaller and are more compatible. So are mkv's better or should I use mp4. Thanks.
  7. Would upgrade to a overkill gaming pc and give my cousin my old pc so he can join the master race.

    3.5mm vs. 6.5mm Jacks

    I recently picked up and a new pair of headphones and was looking into getting an amp for them. The headphones have 3.5mm cable but come with a 6.5mm adapter. I was looking at the O2 amp form Mayflower and was wondering what the difference between the 3.5mm standard model and the 6.5mm desktop model and why one would cost so much more. Is there a benefit to getting the 6.5mm version for the future if I get an headphone with only a 6.5mm cable? Also is it worth getting the DAC/Amp combo?
  10. I hate that you can't customize your pc parts. Can't we just pick and chose what features we want and pick a forfactor and presto you get your dream parts with out all the useless features that nobody really uses. So more skus
  11. Jefferson. That's all I have to say. He probably used the executive power to its fullest extreme and it was more then likely unconstitutional but it was for the good of the country and people. Think about what the US would be like today without the Louisiana territory. No manifest destiny. No sea to shining sea. Sometimes you need to bend the rules to do what is right.
  12. For 2 months I had people complaining I never responded to their texts. I finally realized it was iMessage derping because it was only iPhone users that had a problem texting me. Then i had to track down a iPhone to use and turn off iMessage. This tool would have been so nice.
  13. I really hope that this new one e will have 4k video support one thing the m8 really lacked and I hope they keep the 5 inch screen size it is just perfect for me I can reach every part of the screen with one hand.
  14. If Obama really wants to get some shit done and he is really for Net Neutrality/reclassification of the internet under title II then he should just do it. Use the executive power to make it law. It will piss the telecoms off a ton a the GOP will have a field day with it and probably piss their pants but you got to do what you got do to get shit done. The FCC clearly isn't working for the people, and ya Obama appointed Wheeler but people change and Wheeler my have seemed like the best option at the time and maybe he was. So that option is dead and well the Congress ain't goin' do shit so no help there. That leaves the judicial branch and it has already been prove multiple times that unless there is a reclassification they can't do anything. They literally said you reclassify the Internet as title II and you will win. The FCC won't listen(to many cash wads in their ears). So it looks like Obama is just going to have to pull out the executive order and make it law. And I sure hope he does
  15. This card looks amazibg with those leds and the gtx 980 is a beast of a card
  16. Honestly what is the obsession with gate after everything. Just because we had the Watergate scandal 40 years ago, and Watergate was the actual name of the place, doesn't mean we need to put gate after everything anytime some controversial or crazy happens.

    Left Handed Bias

    But the lack of lefty or ambidextrous tools especially in schools has essentially the same effect in forcing people to become righties. I felt like shit every time we had to use scissors in school because I couldn't cut and they would always just go sideways and the other kids thought I was retarded and couldn't use scissors and laughed.

    Adept yes you can adept to do almost anything with your non-dominate hand including writing with enough practice but the problem with that is you will never be as good as you are with your left unless you are just naturaly ambidextrous. I am just better with using my mouse in my left hand and while I can use it my right I will probably never be as good. Also that would suck to be forced to change, I know that used to be a problem even in the US 40-50 years ago

    Exactly. Most righties don't chose ambidextrous mice because they just aren't comfortable so why should lefties be forced with this a solution.

    Am I the only person that really prefers to use their mouse lefty if its an option. I have used plenty of mice right hand but that is usually by force not chioce

    What I mean by lefty headphones is headphones that have the cable coming out the right side. When using a mouse on the left hand side I find the cable quite annoying. Hotas = Hands On Throttle And Stick. I know many lefties use right hand stuff but why should they have to. I my self use many right hand things but I like using lefty mice much more.
  22. What is the deal with left handed computer peripherals. It always seems that left handed peripherals are either sub-par replacements of their right handed counter parts or more expensive. You typical have a limited selection, and if you want a true left-handed device not ambidextrous it is almost no existent, with usually less futures then a typical right handed device. This is less prevalent in mice but still exists. It would be nice if you could get a Corsiar M45 mouse or something similar in a lefty config. But the real problem exists when trying to find specialty peripherals like hotas and headphones. I have yet to find a single lefty specific hotas and lefty headphones are just random luck when a manufacturer makes them. So what I ask of my fellow left handers is what are some of your favorites lefty peripherals and if anyone has found a left handed hotas.

    LG 34UC97

    Does anyone know if the 34UC87 will be available world wide and if it has the same release date.
  24. The oldest thing I still use (really) is a old floppy drive module from a dell laptop (don't know which one but probably mid 2000's) and the oldest piece of hardware I have is a IBM hard drive from 1994 which makes it older than me.
  25. I found Linus in midish 2013 (around August I think) when I was looking into building my first custom PC. I found lots of good information and like the channel so I stuck around. I would have to say that my favorite series is the As Fast As Possible (Techquickie) series and the Handy Tech Under $100 series. The have a more everyday practical use (I'm ain't ballin enough to be buying graphics cards and motherboards everyday (I wish though)). I would like to see some more of the Handy Tech videos and maybe an increases in the As Fast As Possible releases (maybe 3 per week). Also maybe some more peripheral reviews (monitors, keyboards, headphones, random input devices ect.). And for my favorite food I will have to go with none other than mac 'n cheese. I love mac 'n cheese especially with bacon, mac 'n cheese and bacon is probably one of the best food ever made. And congrats on hitting one million (you will probably have a million more by the time you receive your plaque).
