  1. My aunt works for a company and recently an extremely shady person left their phone at the building and proceeded to disappear for several weeks and accumulate $6,000 on the company card. He ended up charging a car rental to it and reappearing all the way in Louisiana (we live in Oklahoma). His phone needs to be wiped of all things involving the company and my aunt says I can have the phone if I can wipe it. I’d really like to get this phone because it’s a huge upgrade over my current phone. How can I wipe it without the password?
  2. For both I’m looking at the 128gb storage 6gb ram. Which would people of this forum recommend?
  3. I have a dc psu that says 12vdc 3000MA will it fry my arduino uno r3? It says 7-12v for the arduino but will 3000MA kill it?
  4. Here are the things he wants: 500gb ssd at least 500gb hdd (or empty 2.5” slot) 10 key keyboard he doesn’t have much use for a trackpad i7 8th gen 1070 or greater Centered keyboard Backlit keyboard (not necessarily flashy, just visible in the dark) has to be 17”
  5. She’s keeps it plugged in most of he time and just needs something to function consistently
  6. Which micro sd card is better gskill or sandisk 128 gb
  7. I’m looking for a laptop for my grandma. It needs to have an optical drive, be pretty cheap, have good tech support, and just be all around reliable. All recommendations are welcome.
  8. My grandmas relatively new (compared to the time they keep other electronics) dell Inspiron 3543 laptop just lost its hard drive. It’s giving the error code 142. Does anyone know what the course of action would be to get her documents and pictures off of it. I have tried to get her to use google cloud but she insists on using Microsoft office and saving nothing to the cloud. Her photos have not been backed up either. She has three books she’s writing on the hard drive. She probably has some sort of virus, or the specific hard drive could be crappy. She leaves it plugged in 24/7 into a crappy looking two prong outlet to three prong plug adapter. All help is appreciated.
  9. Why is it that it isn't recommended to run it on a raspberry pi zero w?
  10. Can an arduino or similar micro controller run Pi Hole? I'm just trying to get house wide ad blocking as cheap as possible.
  11. I have several questions. 1: can you build your own proxy server? 2: would a proxy affect where I show up on the “findfriends” app? 3:If there isn’t a way of making your own, what are some free, reputable proxies that you would recommend? I’m asking these questions for parental reasons.
  12. This is listed as arduino compatible, what does arduino compatible mean? Is it off brand?
  13. I am doing a project where I need to power 12 ft of addressable leds. I’m going to use an Arduino Uno for programming, but it won’t supply enough power to my knowledge. What power sulpply can I use to power all of these lights? To clarify, I’m leaning towards this strip https://www.amazon.com/ALITOVE-WS2812B-Individually-Addressable-Waterproof/dp/B07FVR6W71/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1548983516&sr=8-3&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=addressable%2Bled%2Bstrip&dpPl=1&dpID=51V7ZuJVpJL&ref=plSrch&th=1&psc=1 but if there are better ones at a similar price and a similar led density. Thanks
  14. Case fans 30 dollars ish for 3 fans
  15. What are the best looking black fans for a decent price? I need 120s. thanks for the input
  16. Thanks for the offer but I live in the US and that would be to hot for a normal lava lamp
  17. That video is hilarious, it is pretty much the use I envision "useless but a novelty"
  18. It's not meant to really cool the cpu th cpu's job is to heat the lava lamp to be clear, I don't plan on using the computer for anything other than heating a lava lamp
  19. So, I have some old dell dimension 4700s, at least I think that's what they are, and I was wondering it I could take the cpu throw in a micro Atx or mini itx motherboard and throw a modified lava lamp on it for cooling. I have some copper left over from when I got a new roof and I think that I could replace the bottom of the lava lamp with a copper plate and just have the computer run a constant stress test. Is this in anyway possible, if it is how could I better my idea?
  20. The only feature I thought that I might need apple for: find my friends, is actually available through android too I would consider apple, but, they are really overpriced, I don't really agree with their business practices, and finally after having torn down an iphone, and after seeing other youtubers teardown apple products, they are a b*tch to repair and even more of a b*tch to have repaired by a third party repair shop, or even by apple. P.S. For frame of reference this is linus when the 4 was new-ish
  21. I am currently the (not very) proud owner of an Iphone 4s. I am starting to get pretty done with the crappy performance and ads that are large enough that the exit button is off screen with the only way to look at the content I'm browsing to being to refresh the page. I saw the LTT video about the Poco F1 and am starting to thing that this would be a decent upgrade option seeing as it wont cost me half of my life savings like other similarly spec'd phones (I am only fourteen and can't get a full job yet, so I have been mowing lawns for relatives, which can only make so much a summer). Is this phone decent for the price? I don't have Netflix and don't watch Prime shows so I am not bothered by the hardware issue of the F1. I would rather not upgrade to an iphone 6 or 7 because a: My parents say I cant have a better phone than them and they have 6S' (they don't know android though), and b: I disagree with apples stance on repair and who actually owns your device. I was thinking about getting an S9 but it would be $600 and would only be marginally better specs. The plastic back of the phone is a nonissue or even a plus because I plan on getting a Dbrand Skin for the phone. Should I wait until the touch issue is fixed, should I pull the trigger, or is there some damning evidence against the phone?
