    What the F is wrong with people?

    It's human nature. Whether you like it or not, you appreciate something about this person and want to help. You're a good person, mind you, but I've been in your situation and you have to rip the bandaid off and cut contact until the person has settled in life. Unless you think she'll harm herself, distance the two of you for awhile. I've absolutely been there; thinking that I've met some amazing girl and my life is going to crumble apart when/if she leaves. I'd become controlling and manipulative. I, too, suffer from anxiety due to being raised by a crazy narcissistic mother. I'm in my twenties and male, she's in her thirties and is a woman, and that is an important difference. As a woman, she is biologically and socially programmed at her age to want kids due to the complications that arise as she gets older and wants to try for kids. This often results in forced, unhappy relationships because the two people got married on the sole basis that kids were on the agenda and it had to be done SOON. My parents did this, got divorced, and have been for the majority of my life. There isn't a healthy dynamic to it no matter how you look at it. She needs to learn to be happy on her own. It's a broken record old saying, but it's absolutely true. Once you become codependent on your partner to sustain your well-being, you're beyond help if something happens to them. The right person will come along if she continues to live her life, even if she doesn't believe it. I'm a guy. I didn't believe that stuff because I've always felt that the guy has to carry the entire burden of courting a relationship along. But here I am with a fantastic girl that walked into my life at a rather complex time for both of us. Was I happier alone? Absolutely not. But does she complement my life well and make me want to be a better person for her? Absolutely. Your friend's mentality is an absolute mental drag for everybody involved. Somebody has to hit her with a bag of bricks (metaphorically, please) if she wants to find what she's looking for.
  2. Get a 2700X and realize your life will move on.
  3. Remove the CMOS battery with the PC unplugged. Press the power button and hold it for a few seconds to make sure there's no power in your system.On your motherboard it's the little silver nickel-looking battery next to the small PCI slot.

    America’s DnB scene

    I think that's kind of grouped into "EDM" or "Dubstep" to most people here in the states.
  5. Reset CMOS with the new RAM installed. I've had defective memory out of the box before a couple of times. It's uncommon but stuff slips through the cracks.

    What do you think of Teslas?

    I've driven a Model 3. The self-driving feature is an optional extra, so you can buy the car without Autopilot optioned. The one I drove was the top-of-the-line in blue and drove very nicely. I've driven lots of electric cars and it definitely was the nicest. I work at a Chevrolet dealership and I drive Bolts fairly regularly and, although that car is a decent electric car, the Tesla is a luxury car. It drove very similarly to a Mercedes C-class and had a lot of switchgear from a Mercedes. The one I drove felt like it did 0-60 a little under 5 seconds, which is pretty quick, even quicker than my Legacy GT. I didn't like how there's no "dashboard" right in front of you to read your speed, odometer, etc right in front of you and it was instead relegated to the large screen in the middle of the dash. I can't imagine what it would cost to replace that, how it might render the car undriveable if the screen failed, etc. The Model S at least has a proper dash. Menu items you had to access frequently weren't always in front of you if you had the navigation open, things such as the climate control, odometer, etc. I still think electric cars are in their infancy. Until every single manufacturer adopts Tesla's proprietary charging plug for Supercharging networks, nobody will want to buy the cars en masse because it's impossible to drive long-distance in a reasonable amount of time unless you own a Tesla that can charge 80% of its battery in 20 minutes. If you want to buy an electric car, you currently, unless you own a Tesla, basically draw a circle with a 50-mile radius around your house and that's as far as you can plan to go with it. I have no clue if Tesla intends to sell the Supercharger plug with a royalty fee for other companies or what, but unless we want Tesla to be an electric car monopoly, I don't see it catching on soon, at least in America where people drive fairly long distances by car.
  7. Samsung B-die memory. Look for 3200 MHz CAS 14 memory kits.
  8. Would y'all know how tuning can affect startup time? My Legacy GT takes awhile to start and it's totally fine to start when it's been warmed up a little bit (say I turn the car off when filling it with gas) but in the morning it's very hard to start most of the time. Would the failing dual mass flywheel cause the hard starting? I ask about the tuning because I recently replaced a bunch of sensors and the car definitely needs to be tuned again.
  9. DMFs in cars suck Had the clutch done in my car and felt that the clutch was slipping but I couldn't place it. Few thousand miles later and the slipping is more pronounced and it feels like I'm moving heaven and earth when I change gear. Probably gonna swap it out for a different clutch and flywheel setup.

    Laptop for college

    I have an Acer 2-in-one and the only issue I ever had with the screen was it being low resolution, like 1366*768. The hinge never broke. If it bothers you just never use it in tablet mode. That Dell looks to have a decent screen, the Asus looks good too. I've had good luck with both brands but the engineering firm I worked for uses Inspirons and XPS laptops and they rarely have issues, maybe some issues with the thermal paste but that's easy enough to replace.

    That Dell looks pretty good. Has two USB A ports, which is good.
  12. US-spec bumpers are gross-looking though IMO
  13. I'd love to put a Rebello in an old one some day! Currently arranging with a friend's dad to help him replace the tranny in a 1975 280, so we'll see how that comes out!
  14. Car enthusiast and Chevy sales here My favorite car is really hard to pin down. I think a ZR1 would be a nice car to have though. I really love all cars. Sports cars, supercars, SUVs, trucks, EVs - all of them. I think I have more of a sweet spot for Japanese cars though. I love Subies and old Datsuns too. No bikes though. Never been my thing.

    so i just discovered what a dac is, which one do i want?

    Basically everything I've said along here assumes you have powered speakers, just by the way. I use an O2 for my JBL LSR308 and it's great, but the LSRs are powered, which is important to me for versatility.
