    SenKa reacted to ARikozuM in Holy crap, I got my revised Financial Aid Reward letter. I’m getting 8.3K this year ?   
    @SenKa This is why I believe that if you're a tax paying citizen, you should be given education for free. No more bullshit about what you make or don't make. Whether you're rich or poor, you should have the right to join the workforce on equal footing. 
     
    You want McDonald's to have a lower minimum wage? Let's give those adults an education, so they can join the educated workforce.

    Pell Grant is very flawed in its design, as if you happen to fall between the cracks you often get denied. This semesters pell grant polls 2017 taxes, which is insane in it's own right. I've been screwed by this, because I'm a dependent of my parents and fall under their taxes, I was denied due to my fathers disabling car accident settling in 2017 (large untaxed income, greatly inflated the estimated contribution to a level over half of what we actually take in as a family). They require another form to conciser you again, which will not be heard until September First. My semester starts August 18th.
     
    Sigh...
     
    Pardon the small rant, but im very happy for you to have gotten your pell grant! I just wish it was a better working system.

    SenKa got a reaction from ARikozuM in Just got a brand new Hyper 212 for $5, not bad! I love goodwill ❤️   
    @ARikozuM The goodwill I live by is the premier flagship tech connect on the east coast US, from what I've been told. Pretty lucky and ironic considering its in the middle of nowhere in mid-west Florida.
     
    iMac G3 Ruby Red sat on one table, i3-8100 Prebuilt on another, TRS-80 Model 1 sold the weak prior. I love it.

    @Dan CastellanetaOh I see many good things from this goodwill. Semi-current laptops, very not-current laptops, desktops of about every vintage from Intel 8088 and even earlier up to 8th gen Intel.

    It’s not an anti-trust if they would simply drop Qualcomm modems and use their in-house modems for their own devices only. Prior to the iPhone 4 with the in-house A4 chip, iPhones 3GS (600 MHz) and older uses Samsung designed SoCs and yet no one cared.

    Maybe worth another shot before making the decision then? Also, again, Wineskin is an option. I have had mixed results with it, but its always fun to mess with.

    IMO, Bootcamp has been a joke since Mavericks was replaced. The drivers are old and the hardware isn't made use out of. Does World of Warships run in WINE/Wineskin?

    Mind you, for me it would be a little less given I qualify for student pricing, but still... Would the 560x be fine for Final Cut Pro editing? Thats really my only concern.

    @SenKa Thanks for the help. Looks like delidding isn't an option (but liquid metal might work but it's risky for such a rare seup). I'll see if WBM works, and if not, I'll have to try a different drive (I don't have another working IDE-compatible rig).

    In theory you should, but Windows installers and corrupt WBM play weirdly together.

    You need to nuke the HDD with a tool like DBAN, corrupted Windows boot managers will do that.

    Ah, yep... They butchered my poor 2011 back when it was in the shop. New logic board, clearly only new to me, it was filthy. Also screws not all where they belonged, also swapped my 500GB HDD for a 320GB, though I only realized that one much later and had no proof.
     
    I now have a 2014 air, and am very happy with it. Will only sell it if the money allows me to buy a 2019 15" pro.

    SenKa reacted to mariushm in When you tell Windows specifically not to reboot, and it reboots, losing ~2TB of data   
    Shouldn't have to, and shouldn't corrupt... ntfs has journaling and transactions
    As for data run a checkdisk on partition.
    if you have access to system with original data you could also make a torrent of your original data and then load torrent on destination pc and  choose to save file where you downloaded before.
    The torrent client will hash check every file and download only the missing or corrupted segments. Or at very least it will tell you which files have errors and you can delete those and then use ftp to get those files only.

    If you boogle up how to stahp binbows updates, if you do some group policy editing and a bit of registry fuckery you can stop this.
