  1. So I was thinking of adding usb charging ports to my car and I don't really want to buy expensive car chargers to chop them up. Cheap ones don't make sense as they usually can't even supply 2.1A. I was thinking of maybe just getting 12-5v DC step down converter and just basically soldering USB ports with wires to it so I can basically have multiple outlets around the car with only 1 source. I was thinking of something likes this - https://www.ebay.com/itm/12V-24V-To-5V-10A-50W-Car-Step-Down-Power-Supply-Buck-Converter-Module-66/283348479243?hash=item41f8e2ad0b:g:zpgAAOSwRGhcRrNe:rk:4:pf:1&frcectupt=true Anyone has any reasons not to do this? I don't care about QC as my phone doesn't really benefit from it.

    DC step down converter - charger?

    Oh yeah, I'm not going to wire it directly to battery, I was thinking of wiring it trough the ignition(turns on in acc position). Since this isn't a very high current stuff, I though of using fuse tap(to lazy to pull the fuse box and add a terminal in empty spot ) Ok, so it looks like my idea works, thanks

    Help bricked mi a2

    Umm....Wrong - when I was installing MIUI on my A2, the usb cable moved and lost connection thus bricking the phone. I could not even enter fastboot or recovery. The way to fix this is open up the phone and use the test points to enter EDL or whatever was that download mode called. That way I successfully brought my phone back to life
  4. Well, it seems like EU is trying to take over the control of the internet - at least in EU. This is disastrous to say the least. It seems similar to what China is doing by squeezing the outsiders out and government having control over all info there is on the net. And of course in my local news sites there wasn't even a mention about this - surprise surprise. Basically China v2. https://edri.org/eu-member-states-agree-on-monitoring-filtering-of-internet-uploads/ https://www.techdirt.com/articles/20180525/10072939912/forget-gdpr-eus-new-copyright-proposal-will-be-complete-utter-disaster-internet.shtml https://www.techdirt.com/articles/20180531/00285739946/eu-parliament-members-play-hardball-terrible-copyright-policies-article-highlighting-sketchy-tactics-magically-disappears.shtml https://eutoday.net/news/business-economy/2018/bitter-row-over-copyright-law-intensifies-ahead-of-key-parliamentary-vote https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/google-news-to-close-down-in-spain-9917032.html https://www.reuters.com/article/us-eu-copyright/eu-states-agree-rules-to-make-search-engines-pay-for-news-idUSKCN1IQ2NS

    HDD power saving?

    Currently I have the windows configured to turn off HDDs after 10mins not to save power(lol, AMD system here ) but it just makes the system much quieter. Can that have a negative effect on the HDD and its lifespan?

    HDD power saving?

    Well, the PSU fan is still loud but the HDD introduces some vibrations which are annoying

    HDD power saving?

    Ahh, I don't mind that. I have set up that I only need 1 active HDD and others can just power off because I don't need them all the time. So it looks I'm good then.

    New GTX 1060 issue

    Also what game are you playing? Some are cpu heavy, some gpu heavy

    CPU performing way worse than it should

    When GPU and CPU are under stress it does throttle the CPU a little, but it doesnt when only the CPU is under load and I was testing only CPU when I was benchmarking it so thermals wont be a problem...
  10. Ok, so my friend got Lenovo Y700-15ACZ (AMD 8800P, r7m 385x) and the CPU is 2x slower in benchmarks than his old laptop(i5 5200u, 940m) although it should be ~20% faster according to benchmarks. The GPU performs like it should about 2.5x better. However games run much worse than before. At idle the CPU shows like 30% load although nothing in task manager details tab shows up using that much.... Any ideas? Im sure it has to do something with the windows. PS. Windows is fully updated, running on the fall creators build. It felt like this out of the box before I even updated it.

    Suggestions for router?

    Hey, I'm finally upgrading my network but I'm not sure what to get exatcly. I'm currently using a pretty shitty solution consisting of 2 tp link cheapo routers. I have 3 wired devices and like 5 wifi devices. The must-have is a good gigabit LAN thats actually can achieve those speeds. Currently I'm looking at MikroTik Hex router and 2 seperate APs because I can't really cover the whole house with only 1 AP or it would be in a very inconvenient place with wires coming to it(ugly). Also there would be a switch in the middle because the 2nd AP would sit in my room... What do you think? Any suggestions?

    any suggestions for a switch?

    Suggestions for router?

    Huh, its probably that... So it seems like you support my idea of mikrotik router?
  14. Mixzzz

    Suggestions for router?

    Not sure, but it is cheapo shitty ones that ISPs provide(150mbit wireless with 100mbit wan :D) It restarts quite often when using YT on wireless devices.
  15. Why? I need to run a BMW specific diagnostic software called DIS. It's not a program but rather an OS so it needs its own VM. The problem is that I don't have the BMW specific device to install it on so obviously I'm going to install it on my laptop. The problem is that it needs INPA(it's drivers and shit) to communicate with the OBD II reader itself. The setup has always been flaky on XP, windows 7 was worse and I'm not going to even try it on win 10 + I don't want INPA installed directly to my system as it is rather a messy installation(folders all over the C: drive, modified registry...). The perfect combination would be if I could run it off directly win xp rather than win xp VM. Q: 1. Can I run Win XP off of an external HDD? How do I install it on the HDD if I can? 2. If not, can I run VM inside a VM?
  16. Mixzzz

    VM inside VM or XP on extarnal HDD?

    ok, thx for the replies
  17. I am in need of a new mouse and keyboard for my 2nd workstation(actually the 2nd seat at my multiseat setup). I have Logitech MX518 and some generic Logitech keyboard that is surprisingly good but since the 2nd workstation needs upgrade really badly, I just might upgrade the peripherals for myself. I still like the MX518 and I'm not sure if I really need to upgrade it though, maybe just get a new mouse for the 2nd. I don't want to spend a ton of money and I don't like gamer and transformer type stuff really, I want something that looks like a regular mouse with forward and back buttons if possible, but feels nice in hand and has a good enough sensor. As for the keyboard - Also don't really need gamery and red/black stuff. Backlight would be nice, probs mech(browns? havent followed the keyboard world for quite a while now ) if I'm going to buy a new keyboard. Numpad is a must though - I use it fairly often. So start firing your suggestions

    Replacement for MX518 and a new keyboard

    Hmm, good suggestion - gonna have to find some shop to try how it feels in hand. Not thinking about that cheap either, might try out the g403 as suggested above

    Replacement for MX518 and a new keyboard

    Hmm, I'll think about it, was thinking about mech keyboard but seeing that they cost 100e+ I might just get this and deal with it Rather spend the money on car

    Replacement for MX518 and a new keyboard

    I don't really require a logitech keyboard, it just happens to be so that both are logitech at the moment.

    Replacement for MX518 and a new keyboard

    Naah, I prefer wired because of the few times the mouse decided to turn off while in csgo match There is no specific budget, something midrange probably as I dont want to spend tons of money.

    Windows text looks awful

    Hmm, replaced the HDMI-DVI cable for a regular HDMI cable, it seems that the problem got solved for the most part except for the desktop icon text...One solution is just to set the background to something dark or black

    Windows text looks awful

    My dad got a new monitor for himself since he needs it for work. Its a Philips 273V (27in 1080p). For my eye the resolution is a bit too low, but its ok. However the text looks horrible, especially the text under icons on desktop. Compared to my old Acer V243H(24in 1080p) which I got used for half the price the new monitor looks just like a cheap shit. (Note: 1PC - 2 users aka multiseat software). The text under icons has weird shadows and the text is pixelated and the text in chrome tabs looks like its missing pixels in few letters. Im already starting to think we should just return it. Also theres some bluriness while gaming and I really dislike although my dad will be working on it I still hate to see that on new monitor in 2017...

    Windows text looks awful

    Tried adjusting ClearType, didn't help at all. What's BGR? Scaling is at 100% now, tried 125% and it resulted in different type of problem - it became blurry for some reason
