  1. General Dynamics makes miltary grade laptops. These are not designed for gaming. Most you will find is designed for miltary and police. What i would suggest is a gaming laptop with vechile mount to secure to your truck. Do not buy one with mechnical drive. Lots of mounts for semi trucks See, https://www.rammount.com/part/RAM-VB-140-SW1
  2. If i had to work on dirty machines i would use as much remote pc management as possible. Unless there is a hard ware issue, you should be able to use remote assistance or remote desktop to trouble shoot issues without being present.
  3. You should always assume once you gain physical access its just a matter of time before the safe guards are compromised.
  4. You can use IMAP instead of POP3 and it will always keep the email on the server. I know this technically doesnt resolve the issue but something to try as a workaround, https://support.google.com/mail/answer/7126229?hl=en
  5. saw this on telsa video for someone who crashed his car turning on dyno mode even if he is a stupid driver, love his taste of music. went in my liked music
  6. gmail supports SMTP and POP3, use that with your fav email client if you want to avoid webmail
  7. did you not read his post? fx 8350 is a very old processor and will seriously bottleneck his performance if he selects 5700XT. you will need a more modern CPU to be able to not suffer performance loss. I wouldnt consider 2600 personally, the 3600 is much faster and from what I read games do significantly better on the ryzen 3 generation processors. this was one reason many gamers switched to ryzen is it closed the gap with intel! there is also many people talking about that game being actually the opposite of what sauron suggests actually very dependent on the single threaded performance. the 3600 boosts its clock higher than 2600 and should have noticeable different paired with the video card. see, for an idea. its not your game but gives you some benches. here is one with all ultra presets and 3600, basically 60 fps he figures there is a cpu bottleneck even with 3600
  8. there is a big difference between decoding playback, and encoding on the fly to stream to tvs in a compatible format. encoding video puts much more stress on the CPU, 4k i imagine would be impossible without a very high end CPU. whereas, adding a video card especially one that supports NVENC is actually designed for this and can do it quite well, so this is the age old question... depends. if you are just playing back video and outputing through HDMI thats fine using on board video. if you are re-encoding and streaming video for DLNA enabled devices, across the network. well, an external card would be very good idea to accelerate the encoding workload and ensure no stutters and framedrops. GPU (if the software is optimized) can accelerate video encoding dramatically compared to just having a CPU.
  9. first death outside china from virus https://www.nytimes.com/2020/02/02/world/asia/china-coronavirus.html “In his last few days, the patient was stable and showed signs of improvement,” said the health secretary, Francisco Duque III. “However, the condition of the patient deteriorated within his last 24 hours, resulting in his demise.”
  10. https://gisanddata.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/bda7594740fd40299423467b48e9ecf6 almost 15000 cases now, and very sad news. its been confirmed over 300 people have died. this is more than double the amount just a few days ago. this disease is spreading fast.
  11. it will for sure at 1080p ultra, I personally would choose the MSI TOMHAWK MAX board. its best of breed board on the B450 chipset. it also has things like flash bios without cpu and many other features
  12. or even go with 3600 instead of the x and save a few extra dollars. x variant gives you a little boost clock and better cooler, its only good to buy 3600x if its not much more. get 3600 Mhz memory i list, or pick one with 3600 Mhz with the tightest CAS timings available.
  13. while your CPU is probably a bottle neck for games, it would not improve things dramatically just upgrading the CPU. you would need to upgrade the graphics card also to a more modern card. its a very old card. performance seems good but its using older GDDR5 and there has just been many improvements. if can always keep it and see how well it performs after the upgrade for the games you play
