    Your 8 char random password now means nothing

    I've always thought intuitively, and said to friends, family small phrases that have meaning to you are better than a simple four - eight letter alphanumerical password. SO for exmample: 0v3rTHEmoon,C4tJumped or <4tJump3dOver-m00n or some kind of combination of this phrase. One i've always liked: Sh3rlocknevers@ysit'selementarymydearW4ts0n. easy enough to remember but much more difficult to brute force.

    help me chose my next headphones

    Everyone I talk to seems to love the DT's for at home. When it comes to sound Sennheiser usually gets it right. I have a set over ear PXC550's i use as my daily driver they go everywhere with me and I love them. If you're gonna pair with an DAC/Amp combo go with the DT's.
  3. Great Series loving the breakdown. Hell I even love the corny 70s Buddy Cop intro and language Just for a comparison note, my buddy who didn't know much about building computers and didn't quite feel so comfortable building his own bought an ABS system off newegg about 7 months ago just before the market started to correct it self with the GPU price crash and memory price hikes. For just shy of $2500 CAD rupee's (2400 + change) here is the system he got (which I opened up and we had a look at together just cuz he was curious how he did as I was telling him about this series): https://pcpartpicker.com/user/jaylocked/saved/#view=3Wj9Jx i7 8700 k (unlocked) ** hugely surprising here** EVGA z370 FTW EVGA GTX 1070 SC edition. EVGA 240 mm rad rgb aio cooler Delta T-Force 2x8GB (16GB) 2666 Mhz Dims a non modular EVGA BR600 600w 80+ bronze PSU All inside a Meshify C case 4 Apevia 120mm white and black white ring led fans I budgeted $30.00 for the led strip they stuck in it which probably in reality was like 10 bucks. although it did come with the controller. Adata 240G 2.5" SSD A 1TB HDD Im assuming it's probably a seagate PC Part Picker comes out to about $1575 USD (I'm estimating a little high throwing in any incidentals I missed). let's face it they probably didnt pay for windows 10 home, and they probably got a killer deal through evga for buying the majority of parts from them... So US 1575 ---> $2107.27 CAD -- Figure they musta paid a guy to stand there put the system together A fee on most configurators I've seen of anywhere from $70-$250... I suspect my friend didnt do too bad here. They probably made a couple hundred off him which hey they're running a business that's fair. watching this series so far my friend made out like a bandit comparatively. All he had to do was email their customer support to get the windows key cuz it didnt come with the package lol. That being said seen some shitty reviews on ABS on newegg too.. looks like if you shop around though and ask a few questions as he did/read a few reviews on the SI's you can do alright for that budget.
