    RAS_3885 got a reaction from lewdicrous in How do I e-beg for hardware?   
    What is new hardware, regardless of how you get it, going to do to improve your situation?  You said yourself that working remotely isn't an option in your country and you don't have motivation to self-employ, so I don't see what a working computer is going to do to make things different.
     
    Sounds like you need to focus on getting any job.  I don't know how old you are, or what part-time employment looks like in your country, but I have a hard time believing that EVERY SINGLE JOB requires you to lift 50+ kgs.  If so, then start working out so you can get one of those jobs.
     
    It's harsh, but you gotta try a little to help yourself man.

    Just to confirm, when connected to a totally different system the issue is still present, correct?
     
    If so then it's most likely the monitor is bad.

    @Gorgon Is this why my EoC PPD has been correct, but the F@H Client has been under-reporting my estimated PPD for a while now?
     
    EoC has my PPD at ~670k, but the folding client has only been showing ~112k.

    RAS_3885 got a reaction from TheSLSAMG in GTX1080 very hot   
    Yes, that helps, and my assumption was wrong.  Your rear two fans are both intakes and the radiator is exhausting the case.  Not optimal since most of the air will just flow along the top portion of the case and exit without really making its way down to the graphics card.
     
    BUT, given you still have high temps w/o side panel and fans maxed then you will likely need to dig into the cooler itself.  Cleaning the heatsink and re-applying thermal compound is probably the next logical step.

    RAS_3885 got a reaction from TVwazhere in Contact lens vs Glasses?   
    Another big vote here for contacts. 
     
    Wore glasses for 18 years and now contacts for 12. Don't plan on going back. Once you get over the initial learning curve putting them in and taking them out is super easy. Good hygiene practice and regular eye exams avoid any complications, as do well fitting lenses that work with your eyes. Mine have slight blue light filtering after getting eye soreness from all day in front of a computer. Totally solved that issue.
     
    I love not having to worry about glasses that get scratched, smudged, or damaged. Any cheap sunglasses work, and sports become a non-issue when wearing contacts. I can lay on the couch and not bend worry about bent frames.

    Also, if your state does emissions testing make sure you budget for a catalytic converter. Some aftermarket kits are catless.
     
    Actually, you should put a cat on a road car regardless, but that's your call in the end.

    RAS_3885 got a reaction from Lurick in Do you limit wifi access by MAC address?   
    My understanding is MAC spoofing is pretty easy for someone who really wants to connect to your access point.  It makes you feel more secure than it actually is.
     
    Solid WPA2 security and a strong password is plenty for the average home user who just want to keep neighbors off their network.

    RAS_3885 reacted to Otto_iii in Contact lens vs Glasses?   
    I've worn both for about 20 years

    Contact lenses are VASTLY VASTLY superior in regards to both potential eyesight (with good doctor i had nearly 20/10), but more importantly peripheral vision and ability to use your entire range of eye movement.  The amount you can see out the side of your eye (peripheral), or moving your eyes around is massive.  Might not sound like a big deal but when crossing the street or just looking around its massive.  You cannot look properly to the left or right with glasses, its essentially blinders.  If you commute (drive or bike) in a busy area or play sports definitely get some contacts, even if you wear glasses 60% the time (at home etc) out of convenience.

    That said, ive been wearing glasses for the last 2 years due to either a bad contact perscription in some form, or either the strength was wrong, i kept getting double vision after a few hours after putting them in, personally i think the contact type itself was drying itself out on my eyes and just a bad brand, but this has only happened to me once, sadly recently though and haven't had $ to go back.  I like the convenience and to some degree style of glasses but it honestly feels unsafe driving in them due to the lack of peripheral vision and ability to use full range of eye movement.  

    Get contacts professionally perscribed, take them out early in the day and wear cheap glasses you can get on amazon or if you have cash just get cheap glasses (you can buy 25$ pairs easy online, just match perscription off strongest eye, aka lower number, if -1.75 in one eye and -1.5 in other choose -1.5) when you plop your butt down at home and aren't commuting/doing real life thing 

    Potential cheap glasses: https://www.amazon.com/Nearsighted-Eyestrain-Blocking-Computer-Strength/dp/B01MYMKQ7I/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?keywords=Myopia+cyrux+-1.5&qid=1566453678&s=gateway&sr=8-1-fkmr0 
    (note, these work for me because my pupil spacing lines up, 53-54mm, if yours didnt then don't buy these or similar generic glasses for "Myopia"/near sightedness)

    RAS_3885 reacted to RejZoR in Contact lens vs Glasses?   
    Contact lenses are the best shit ever. I hate how glasses look and feel. Glasses are always in the way, you can't wear sunglasses over them so you need second pair or those self changing thingies which always look weird when they are in transition, in summer it's extra hot behind them, in winter they are constantly fogging up, if you bend forward they swing away from the face, if you make the nose thing tighter they are uncomfortable, they scratch and smudge, you have to be careful not to sit on them, lose them at sea, they are annoying at sports and I could go on and on about them.
     
    I don't know who brought this trend of granny glasses and how proudly young people wear that ugly oversized window frame shit, but I can't stand them.
     
    Contact lenses have none of that bullshit and if you keep just a very basic hygienic level, you'll be fine. Once you find good lenses that are comfortable, have alright price and provide good vision, you stick with them. Problem solved. You stick them in your eyes in the morning and take them out before sleep in the evening. If you have good lenses, you sometimes don't even have to do that. When I'm on business trips I always just sleep in them and it's fine coz I don't want to carry all the stuff with me.
     
    Most people get some garbage <30Dk/t hydrogel lenses for trial and then give up because they are just shit as they are suffocating the eyes, especially first time they have a nap and they wake up with dracula eyes. Get something proper silicone-hydrogel like B+L Ultra, Miru, AirOptix or Biofinity. They all have Dk/t over 120 and up to 160 which is enough oxygen permeability to use such lenses for sleeping. And they are also super comfy over day to a point that I often went to bed and remembered I still have lenses in my eyes (I usually take them out every evening).
     
    I've tested basically all lenses in existence over years I've been using them and some are better than others. You just have to risk it and try them if you want to find ultra comfy ones, but stick with high Dk/t, that's basically an universal rule.
     
    Eye surgery, after I did research, I'm sticking with lenses. Until they can fix the retina using laser without cutting into cornea with scalpel, I'm staying away from it. Especially when you learn that cornea never actually fully heals back after it's peeled away for laser treatment of retina.
     
    If anyone has any questions about contact lenses, fire away, I'll be happy to answer anything you've ever wanted to know about them.

    RAS_3885 reacted to APasz in what is floatplane?   
    A floatplane is a type of seaplane that has floats instead of wheels. This allows the plane to land on a river, lake, or sea.
    Some types of floatplanes are able to also land on land.
    Since WW2 and the advent of helicopters, military floatplanes have quickly fallen out of favour.
    In recent decades floatplanes have also seen a steady decrease in civilian use, however many planes have aftermarket modification kits to allow waterlanding.
