  1. For what you've described as your primary use cases, basically any Chrome Book will be more reliable and future proof. It will be able to handle any of those mentioned tasks as well or better than a cheap windows computer.
  2. I converted a pretty decent mountain bike ( to electric last year but was a bigger pain in the ass than I had expected it to be. I got one of those 1000W kits from Amazon and got lucky with the batteries because hobbyking was having a sale (3 x 4s 16AH for a total of around 700wH for $150 USD). It was front wheel drive, because I figured it would be easier to deal with than the rear sprocket etc, but the front dropouts on the fork ended up breaking off, because it was some brittle aluminum alloy and was not designed for that much torque in the front. I ended up having to get a cheap chinese steel fork but the mounting holes for the front disk brakes were slightly off, coupled with the motor being too wide, so I had to replace the front brake caliper, and even then it didn't ever line up properly. I designed a 3d printed enclosure for the batteries, and that was the only part of the bike that went well. I built it because I wanted to use it to get around my large and hilly college campus, but it ended up being so big, heavy, and cumbersome that I only used it maybe 15 times in a year and ended up walking/taking the bus.
  3. I went to the San Jose location a couple months ago and it was basically an abandoned amusement park. It was pretty depressing as there was once a time when going to Fry's was more exciting than going to an amusement park for me .
  4. one time while touring colleges, an on campus starbucks for some reason didn't charge us because of some glitch in their register because we tried to use some special offer
  5. Asus Z97-A, the PC in question is the one in the whatever the thing below is called. There is no audible beeping on power on
  6. Howdy, After getting my gaming laptop for college, my old PC (specs in the bio) got retired to being a large paperweight. Now that I'm back home, I wanted to use the PC as compute server for neural networks/other ML stuff. It booted up just fine when I tried it at first, it felt a bit slower than I remembered but it still worked. I was waiting for a few GB of pictures to backup to a USB drive, so I left the computer for a bit then returned, but the screen was black. I thought it was just asleep, so I tried to wake it. Then I tried restarting. I unplugged it and plugged it back in again. Nothing seemed to get it to post again. The fans turned on and all the LEDs etc, but I wasn't getting any kind of post. I tried using the mobo display ports, nothing. I unplugged all the drives and nothing worked. I can't seem to diagnose what went wrong. Maybe the CPU died? I tried to clear the cmos and that didn't help either. I don't really know how that would've happened though. If anyone has an idea of how to fix it, I would be incredibly grateful. I am not desperate for a fix, as my laptop is still more powerful, but it would be nice to get it running again. Thanks.
  7. So its about that time where I get kicked out of the house and into college. I'm going to be majoring in robotics engineering, so that entails a lot of CAD and MATLAB, plus I do like to game occasionally. I've been doing some perusing through Newegg trying to find a laptop in the $1500 range. I'd like to try and get a 1070 for that price, as there are a few options. I'm not entirely sure how important thickness is to me, as I've never been a laptop person, so some advice in that realm would be welcomed. I don't want to be the type of person who just stays in their dorm all the time working or gaming, so i'm going to at least try to make it to the library to get work done. My primary candidates so far are the Eluktronics P650HS-G and Mech-15HS barebones , the MSI GX63VR-NE1070, and the ASUS ROG Strix GL702VS-AH73. The main concern with the Eluktronics is that there are almost no reviews of them on the internet, but I do like that they aren't friggin red, I hate how nearly all of the affordable gaming laptops are red. They also allow for flexibility in drive size and type. The MECH version is quite thick, but that might mean there is better thermal performance, which is always a good thing. I do intend on this laptop lasting me all the way through college. 120/144hz would be nice but isn't necessary. Any input is appreciated, thanks.

  8. Hi, I have very limited knowledge in the field of general electronics. I want to build a solar boat with a pool net attached. I plan on just getting a 5Ah 12v Sealed Lead Acid from amazon (because Lipos are a pain in the ass) and one of those cheap 12v 5watt solar panels to charge it while not in use. Would I need some sort of charge controller or is that sort of thing not necessary? Thanks and byebye! http://www.ebay.com/itm/12V-5W-Portable-Solar-Panel-Power-Battery-Charger-Backup-for-Car-Boat-Automobile-/201450281105?hash=item2ee75f5891:g:50oAAOSwXeJXc25C https://www.amazon.com/ExpertPower-EXP1250-Alarm-Battery-Terminals/dp/B0010Z4MDK/ref=cm_cd_al_qh_dp_i

  10. My french teacher takes kid's phones who are using it in class and tries to guess the password like 50 times and gets them locked out of their phones for a few hours. She has guessed it right on a few occasions and changed the language to Norwegian. Good fun.
  11. Hey guys, will buying 4 of these ( http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005T63BJM?gwSec=1&redirect=true&ref_=s9_simh_gw_p147_d0_i6 ) work the same as buying one of these? ( http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Vengeance-Desktop-Memory-CMZ32GX3M4X1600C10/dp/B0068ZWZY0/ref=sr_1_4?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1450105233&sr=1-4&keywords=32gb+ram )? For some reason it is cheaper to get 4 individual ones. Thanks, bye bye!

    Hands down I'd have to say the Soundmagic e10. I own both the soundmagic e10 and the Meelectronic M6 pros and i'd take the e10s over them any day. The m6 pros have a slightly muddy sound and the left one was a bit louder than the right.
  13. If you aren't going to be working in a place where there is a lot of background noise, I'd recommend an open-back pair of headphones such as the Audio-Technica ATH-AD500x/700x or the Beyerdynamic DT990 Pros. I currently own the 500x and my only gripe with it is that it has a very very long cable, but that could be viewed as a positive depending on who you are!
  14. I'm no expert, but i'm almost certain that you wouldn't be able to fit one in a laptop. EDIT: like I said, not an expert :V
  15. What happens when you pour bleach on your toes?
