  1. Would it be worth waiting for Gen 4 PCI-e or getting this while it's so cheap? I wasn't planning to upgrade for 6 months or so but this deal seems too good.
  2. You reckon to sacrifice IPS for 165Hz and GSync? Thoughts on something like the MG279Q?
  3. Thanks but looking for something to be as good or better than my PB278Q 1440p or higher, don't mind 16:9 or 21:9
  4. So I've just broken my beloved ASUS PB278Q, it was fantastic apart from slight backlight bleed. I use it 50/50 for gaming and media consumption and am wondering what monitor to go for next or whether to get a TV. I feel terrible even considering a TV but with the amount of backlight bleed I see on IPS panels these days I wonder whether it's worth the risk. Any help would be great, thanks!
  5. BxActions - I've been using this for a while and you can bind single press, double press and long press to different actions, e.g. opening applications, camera, calendar, email.
  6. It seems that Windows loads in the background as I can hear Windows sounds when things load. Also my LEDs change colour when the CAM software loads which they are doing but I still have a black screen with Windows Logo and spinning dots... I've tried startup repair as well but can't completed it because Windows is saying my password is incorrect.
  7. Out of the blue I restart my PC now can't get passed the Windows Logo and the spinning circle of dots... When I restarted it didn't say anything about uodates. Also the cursor changes in to a hand in certain locations as if I can click on things but all I'm seeing is the black screen with the Windows Logo and loading circle.
  8. The hardware will last much longer, I believe it's the orbit they're thrown in to will only last 6 years before re-entry.
  9. I'm a second year student working with them and I can't design them, it takes a huge level of knowledge and understanding to do. The designer uses software called Rocket Propulsion Analysis, along with his own custom software.
  10. Oops my bad, sorry, that was pretty loud! I'm not the designer but I think it's something like 80% equations and 20% software to feedback results and design components. I'll ask our designer tomorrow about the process. Are you studying or building rockets?
  11. Our latest firing! WARNING: LOUD!
  12. We bought a 1m long bar of stainless steel with a 108mm diameter for about £100 and used some of that to machine the rocket engine from. The biggest cost apart from our Data Acquisition Unit is the plumbing; solenoids, relays and fittings cost hundreds of pounds.
  13. Oh wow it's actually illegal? If you have access to the machinery needed then rocket engines are really cheap to make, the one above cost around £20 for the steel it's made out of.
  14. No other rocket fans? Or do I need to fire the bigger rocket engine we have to get some attention?
  15. Myself and a few other students from KURPG have been designing and building rocket engines over the past few months. We focus on bi-propellant engines and our most recent uses liquid Propane and gaseous Oxygen as seen here: The firing is so short as it's just to test our new plumbing arrangement. The next firing on Monday will be for about 10 seconds. Are there any other rocket enthusiasts at LTT?
