    My mom is on board with it, and my father is the type to stick to an opinion till his grave even if he knows damn well its wrong one. So, Im just gonna go fi with my mom and let my dad overpay for verizon and the 12GB he doesn't use (his data usage consists of browsing craigslist while waiting outside thrift shops for me and my mother who both run online resale shops. He insists on going despite having 0 reason to.)

    My options are Verizon or Fi, as no other carrier has service in my house (which is in the middle of nowhere). I worked out the math, and Verizon true unlimited for 3 lines is far more expensive than 3 lines of Fi at max data usage.

    SenKa got a reaction from RAM555789 in ASRock motherboard caught fire- PLS HELP   
    With any motherboard failure I would just automatically concider the CPU dead. It likely got damaged in ways you couldn't see, and even if it didn't not only will the damage possibly not be apparent immediately, you're taking a large risk to killing your new motherboard with a dead CPU.
     
    The PSU may be fine, your unit has good OCP protection but may have been shorted in a way that killed it anyways
     
    RAM is a simple test, you can wait to RMA this until your motherboard is replaced. It's pretty much a yes or no question if it's working correctly.
     
    GPU is another yes or no test, when you get your new mobo stress it on Firmark and see if it crashes. If yes, RMA. If no, you're fine.
     
    Fans should be fine, have AsRock cover them if theyre not.

    SenKa got a reaction from PacketMan in Kansas considering bill requiring distributors to provide porn filtering   
    Also, as for all people citing the first amendment. @PacketMan @Commodus @Blademaster91.
     
    This bill would be illegal under the first amendment, but from the side of the buisnesses.
     
    As the supreme court has set in prescient, demonstration is an act of speech even when no physical words are spoken. For example, Pornhub is speaking their beliefs through demonstration of porn shared online.
     
    This bill limits that, and is thus illegal.

    SenKa got a reaction from mxk in 8086k strangely hot   
    yeah, thats a bad pump.
     
    It can work but work not enough to actually cool properly. Had this issue with an old Corsair AIO I got scammed on off a local seller.
     
    Buy a new cooler and enjoy your CPU

    Youre putting a lot of faith in a bill that just requires you to pay $20 to remove the block. If it was say, $2,000 then I would at least see your POV.
     
    In the state of Florida, it is common for $20 to be equivalent to 2 hours of work. Two hours. I.E. 1/4th a single day of a work week...

    Just had a rich one with my parents the other night. Tried to talk them into Google Fi, since it seems to have better reliable coverage in the areas I travel to (I'm the only one with a long commute ATM). Currently they're overpaying for Verizon, and 12GB is NOT enough for 3 people when 2 of us have online businesses to run while simultaneously doing other stuff.
     
    My father does not listen well. He's a stubborn italian man with hearing loss.
     
    5 minutes in and he was convinced beyond convincing that Google Fi required all of us to purchase a Pixel 3/Pixel 3XL, for $800 (I didn't catch which.)
     
    No, we not would need new phones. None of us purchased unlocked phones, but my father will continue to babble on about how unlocking your phones yourself never works after dealing with some crackhead shopping mall phone companies in the mall he used to manage.
     
    So yep. You heard it here first people. You cant carrier-unlock phones and Google Fi requires Pixel 3's!

    I would absolutely kill for a phone like this with 2019 specs.
     
    Imagine say... a rugged S9+ with a genuine week long battery. That would be the perfect phone, imo.

    Before you pronounce it dead, DDU and reinstall drivers. If that doesn't work, reflash the VBIOS. If that doesn't work, it's probably dead

    I've posted quite a few stories here, and I make it a habit to post one every time I see this threat bumped to the top. Soooo, here we go!
     
    This was my freshman year, and I had a potato ass laptop. It was an Acer Aspire 4710, and I had to run Lubuntu because I wasn't very Linux savvy at the time, needed a light weight OS, and it only had XPDMA drivers ever made for its hardware (My schools network was made in such an bass akwards way that only Win 8, Win 8.1, and Mac's could properly log on. As well as Linux machines).
     
    I pull up TOP in the terminal because it was lagging out hard and I wanted to see what was up. The amount of stares...
     
    I was a renowned hacker from that day on, despite my best efforts to shut them up because I knew literally 0 coding other than basic Linux commands. Thankfully I was never asked to "hack" anything, only help bypass the schools content filter and cheat on tests.
     
    That same laptop also nearly caught on fire in my backpack after it turned itself on and cooked itself.

    All 3 of the laptops you mentioned have their issues.
     
    The XPS has some strange driver issues as you said, but those can and will be patched in the coming future. I had an XPS, wasn't a fan of the build quality. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't confidence inspiring having it in my backpack.
     
    The Zenbook has thermal issues, touch-pad issues, and other strange anomalies in the design that make it unworthy of anybodies purchase.
     
    The X1 Extreme has issues with simple inconsistencies. For some reason, lord knows what, lenovo decided to have multiple OEM's for the Trackpad and Keyboard, which leads to some very non-satisfactory experiences if you dont get a good set. I've seen people try 4 different models at random and not get a good keyboard/trackpad combo. I am a thinkpad guy at heart, but cannot recommend the X1 extreme.
     
    Though, being a thinkpad guy I am going to recommend another thinkpad! The X280, to be exact

    Never, ever take opinions on the internet with anything more than a grain of salt. That is a fast track to low self esteem and other self-esteem related mental issues.
