    don't know where this falls under

    If I understood you correctly, you were afraid that you might need some sophisticated maths skills to become an IT technician. I don't think you will need a lot of knowledge in that field as a technician (although it wouldn't hurt), but you will definitely be confronted with a much higher dose of maths if you want to study computer science at a university.
  2. A channel that focusses on electric vehicles would be fun, but as some of you said, it would probably be too far away from LTT's focus. I also don't think LTT currently has qualified staff for that (with some background in electrical engineering for example).

    DVR question

    Hi, if they are "fancy, expensive" cameras, they might actually be connected to another recording device (with some wireless technology or the power cord is for example a PoE cord that carries both data and power and is plugged into some other device). Just ask your boss and/or the company that installed that system. It is in both your, your boss' and your colleagues' interest that the security cameras are working in case something gets stolen.
  4. Due to the different form factors of GPUs and the different memory types I don't think so. I could only imagine a GPU manufacturer teaming up with some motherboard manufacturer to create a product together (motherboard + GPU combo), but then the GPU will likely be fixed. This is essentially what we had years ago when onboard graphics weren't integrated into the CPU but consisted of a discrete chip on the motherboard.

    Game room

    This looks quite good, but I have some ideas for further improvement: Would it be possible to move the left and right conduit next to the middle conduit until you reach the TV and then have them either branch out from there or let them go up vertically and then split them once they are at the correct height? This might make you wall surface look less "scattered". As for the cables under the table, it looks to me like you have a power bar on the floor where everything is plugged in. You could try using a picture ledge (like this one for example: https://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/70292104/?query=MOSSLANDA&icid=iba|us|unbxdsuggestion|201811132211556208_1#/20291767 ) to puit your power bar onto, then you would only have the power bar's power cord that goes into the wall socket visible. I actually did that both at my desk and at my parents' desk and found it to be quite effective. Depending on which is more practical, you could mount the picture ledge either to the wall or to be underside of your table (which might require some metal brackets).

    AMD Is Crushing Intel in Laptops Too

    To be honest, I never used a Laptop's webcam before (I guess I'm not a big fan of selfies or video chats). Not having an integrated webcam would save people from covering it up with some type of paper/cardboard (many people around here are actually doing that due to privacy concerns).

    for the French dude !!!

    Je suis prêt à faire partir d'un groupe de volontaires qui s'occupe de la traduction de sous-titres en Français.

    for the French dude !!!

    I understand your request, but I also think it would be a lot of work with only a very small percentage of the viewers profiting from it. I know that there are many people in the world who speak French (I do too by the way), but I guess most of those people also understand English well enough to follow LTT's videos. I know that many French people don't find learning and speaking English to be as easy as one might think, but it is still perfectly possible and more important/useful than ever.

    This is not an easily answered question and as everyone here has said, only professionals can give dependable medical advice. That being said, I can tell you that I know some pharmacists very well and they tell me that a well-balanced diet is more effective than most of the vitamin supplements you can get. There are ways to detect possible deficiencies which can then be professionally tackled. I also understand that you have had some bad experience with some doctors. As in every profession, you will find a broad spectrum of people there, so I would recommend trying to find a qualified doctor whom you find reasonable and can trust do to the right thing. Not every doctor favours the same type of approach and the most expensive doctors aren't necessarily the best ones.

    thermal paste for TV - LEDs ?

    The big difference to a CPU is the amount of heat that has to be dissipated and the contact area available. All power that goes into a CPU has to be dissipated since it becomes heat whereas a LED converts some of it into light (so not everything becomes heat, but still a fair amount). The consumer grade LED strips I have seen have a power draw of less than 20W per meter, so it's not nearly as challenging a task as keeping a CPU cool.

    thermal paste for TV - LEDs ?

    Hi, I have seen many LED strip but never some with thermal paste. Usually, the high-power ones are glued onto an aluminum surface like it appears to be the case here. Since you aluminum backplate is large, I expect heat dissipation to be ok if the TV's ventilation slots are all unobstructed.

    FINALLY Upgrading my 4 year old Gaming Rig!

    Knowing how long you took to finally get rid of the lambo, I want to save you some time: You can send your old gaming rig to me, I will take good care of it
  13. As far as I can see, that modem has nothing to do with the ISS's internal wiring. Outdoor cables can also be used to connect two rooms in the same structure like it was done in a LTT video featuring Linus.
  14. Next video on LTT: Linus goes to the ISS and deploys Cat 6.a cabling for 10Gbit ethernet. He also uses the opportunity to test outdoor-grade cables, carelessly drilling holes into the ISS's walls and then taking a space walk in his sandals.

    Looking for an adapter but...?

    Hi, it looks like you need a TRS to TRRS adapter like this one: https://www.amazon.com/Adapter-Cable-Little-Blinks-Microphone/dp/B01M0VN5W7/ The male side should be TRS (3-pin) to plug into the phone while the TRRS (4-pin) side should be female for your new headset to plug into. Just be careful which type of adapter you are buying: I read that Apple patented its own TRRS (4-pin) layout where they switched Mic and Ground, so make sure you get the right one for the headset you have. EDIT: I forgot to think about the way the landline handles the inputs. Since it is a telephone, there might be a mic channel in the 3-pin config. In that case you would probably need to use the adapter, cut the cable and connect (solder) the right cables back together so that all channels are matching. That is of course unless you find a specialized adapter that already does the job.
