    SenKa got a reaction from DezGalbie in Suddenly cannot write to my drive   
    I will run some tests on my 8TB drive, it was the biggest offender between my OS drive, 1TB SSD, and that.
     
    I believe it may be a windows bug, but I have ~6TB of files to test with.
     
    Will come back with results. But, for sure get a UPS.

    I only had that issue with very large batches of the files (several TB's.)
     
    I honestly couldn't tell you what exactly, I wish I could. I will say, it has gone away since I updated to 1809.

    Your video literally did the opposite, unless something went way over my head.
     
    After reading this article I think it is either a big clout chasing scheme or very easily triggered nerds writing their hearts out.
     
    The reason I say that is because 99% of the issues they poised are what I, (a linux noob, but otherwise well-informed PC and Mac enthusiast), would consider common sense. Or even worse, these are things you mentioned in the video!
     
    Below (in a spoiler tag, since it is long) is a copy paste of their main points of issue and a measure of their validity
     
    If you read through all that, feel free to correct me as (as I said) I am not the best at this stuff. Especially Linux.

    I believe that Anthony did an exceptional job with that video, and specifically with that guide. It is not by any means an AIO guide-follow these 5 easy steps. BUT it is MUCH more efficient and helpful, than to sit through a whole documentation(which Anthony probably did).
     
    Also, don't get discouraged by such unprofessional means. We look forward to more videos of such kind(Linux Gaming, Linux VMs, Linux guides in general).
     
    Bottom line: to the average pc/mac user this video guide won't mean that much. A functioning potato that could browse and post on social media would be just enough. However, for people like myself and other tech enthusiasts, who are not really deep into the OS and it's billion different distros, as well as the commands needed to perform such tasks, these guides are treasure.

    As for the GPU i would go the route of extension cable and mounting its somewhere else completely.

    And as for power i would recommend a (not to old) uninterruptible power supply. Since you can connect those with USB to get the telemetry so if you dont produce enough power (like for instance from solar power) you would know and you have the time to shut down.

    As for on the road internet, that would depend highly on the location, in my country i would just tether my phone. Since on 4G even gaming is somewhat possible (not fast paced but slower games). But you have dedicated 4G devices to connect to a PC (or even notebook).
    Satellite Internet is also an option, alto i don't know much about that besides it being very expensive.

    Does the kindle have a USB port?  if so can you plug a cable in to it and into your PC and then simple use the kindle as a storage device and copy out the files you need?

    If this is company owned and you can produce the proof of purchase, Apple will unlock it. I've done this a few times with company devices. 
    Otherwise, the only way Apple will process an activation lock issue is to help the original owner get signed in to their icloud account.

    SenKa got a reaction from TheKDub in Has LMG's YouTube content gotten Better or Worse?   
    Very opinionated topic, and literally every response will be the result of that persons ideals of "better" as a result of their experiences.
     
    As somebody who worked in video production, and is a pretty devout techie, I think LMG has improved immensely as time goes on.
     
    The old style of a few plebs in a kitchen had its own appeal, but it always made me cringe a tiny amount because of how unprofessional it all was. The opposite is also possible, where a channel takes itself too seriously, but LMG isn't that.

    SenKa got a reaction from LewisBloom in 2080Ti what to look for and what to avoid   
    To actually answer your question of price segmentation within the 2080Ti card, it does matter. As I said before, there are really 4 cards you want to look at if you want the best 2080TI experience. Those are the MSi Lightning Z, EVGA KiNGPiN, Asus ROG Strix, or Galax Hall of Fame edition cards. These are probably the 4 most expensive, but by far and beyond the best.

    Well in the end the 2080Ti is a monster, especially the high end models and that is what really matters.

    SenKa reacted to Benjeh in Can't Get Into BIOS And Windows   
    Ok when you overclocked the cpu originally you probably didn;t give it enough voltage and the freeze was a result of this. To return the bios back to factory, shut everything down, flick the psu switch to off, hold down the power button for 5 secs, remove the cmos, now hold down the power again for 15 secs or so. all this done with the psu plugged into the wall so it is earthed and will drain capacitors. put the battery back in etc.

    Now when you boot up for the first time, it will take a little longer than usual to post, be patient, there will be a setup message after the bios logo has gone off, you should be able to go into your bios and set the basic stuff up.
     
    If you still can't get into the bios then I suggest getting your motherboard manual and reading how to do a bios flash from usb pendrive to the latest bios, this should get rid of a corrupt bios or incompatible bios issue. you could get into your bios before so i doubt you have damaged anything overclocking, the only way you can damage a board overclocking is if you go silly with high voltages beyond maximum recommended ones.
