    Hello, world!

    Welcome. We have free cookies, well we did until Linus cut us off and it just hasn't been the same since then.
  2. Hello everyone it's been a long time since I've been on the forums. I did try searching for this topic prior to posting however I couldn't find anything. (I probably didn't do it right so my apologies.) I just ordered up a Matebook 13 and it's my first ever touchscreen laptop. I had never even thought about a screen protector for a laptop prior to seeing it pop up as a suggested item at checkout on Amazon. My question for you guys is should I get a screen protector or pass on it? Thanks in advance for your feedback and time!

    Screen protector on a touchscreen laptop?

    Well I guess you guys are helping me reinforce my gut feeling of skipping the screen protector. Are laptop touchscreens usually glass of some sort? I would assume so but really have been lacking in my knowledge of laptop screens.

    Oldie but was a goodie till I got greedy

    Is reinstalling windows completely out of the picture? Maybe disconnect your drive and attempt starting the process of a reinstall to see if it will even post into a windows install.

    Buy a 1080 ti strix for 400 usd or wait for a 2080?

    1080ti for $400 seems good to me, I like getting stuff as newer stuff is about to come out.

    Oh, my bad sorry. Sounds like booting into safe mode is by far the best action at the moment. If that goes nowhere then time for a new course of action.

    Photoshop Requirements.

    That system is starting to get pretty dated. It really depends on what you are doing with photoshop and what your standards are for the running of photoshop. Overall that will run the program fine I just want to stress the fact I think you could see some limitations depending on the workload intended. I think for your school work tasks that should be plenty.

    Any luck booting into safe mode? Maybe take the GPU out and see if it will boot? That way you can confirm its a GPU issue?

    The photo is quite vivid and I really enjoy the colors. In some ways seems a little overwhelming but that may just be me. 7.5/10 Taken on a Sony a6300 with kit 18-55 lens
  10. As the title says I am looking into this career path and was wondering if any members on here are currently Paramedics? What are your thoughts about someone 19 going to paramedic school? I am currently an EMT and my family has been in the business for as long as I can remember. I do work part time on an ambulance as an EMT and love it to death (No pun intended) Thanks in advance! (I hope this is an allowed post. Its been almost a year sense I have logged on.)

    Good Jobs for Teens?

    My motto is any job is a good job. Employers like to hire people who have a history. Getting experience in the workforce is worth working for very little money. I currently paint houses 6 days a week and the 7th day I am an EMT on an ambulance. EMS is the job I want but I do not have the experience or qualifications to do it full time so I work what I can. It's all about the experience.

    Wow, I really like it!! Pros: Location Framing Focus I also really like how the bridge gives so much depth to the photo! (Nice angle) Cons: Overall the photos lighting is just not that great. (Half is super bright and half is very dark) Overall: I really like this image and its got a lot to look at 8.5/10 Here is mine IMG_9689 by Downpour Photography, on Flickr
