Is this thread necrotic? 

 

anyway, I'd like to add when people rely on tech websites for information about humanity (eye biology, psychology, social sciences, finance etc).  It's like people don't realise that just because there is a crossover between tech/gaming (a topic they know) and psychology ( a topic they know jack shit about) doesn't make them fucking experts in said field.


QuicK and DirtY. Read the CoC it's like a guide on how not to be moron.  Also I don't have an issue with the VS series.

When people think that having 7 devices on a single access point is going to severely degrade the performance. Even when none of the devices are using the network resources.

When the threads on the locknuts of a DVI or VGA connector don't engage. Drives me bonkers.


I cannot be held responsible for any bad advice given.

I've no idea why the world is afraid of 3D-printed guns when clearly 3D-printed crossbows would be more practical for now.

My rig: The StealthRay. Plans for a newer, better version of its mufflers are already being made.

I have some tech pet peeves or things that bug me. Here are some of mine:

 

  • Cluttered desktops
  • Cluttered desk tops (difference)
  • Downloading things into C:\
  • Distorted pictures
  • More than 30 tabs open
  • When people play games in a window if not needed
  • When someone opens up their laptops and it looks like they spit on it 87 times a day

What are some of yours?

Everything you just said (except the laptop part lol)

 

 Tearing

 Inconsistent stuff (ex.: 2 different model monitors)

 Bugs. Obviously.

A dead pixel. My OCD (CDO if I'm having an OCD attack) goes insane.

I noticed one the day I got my Nexus 7 and tried returning it. The guy laughed at me and said he couldn't see it. :(

Upgrading peoples computers that were OBVIOUSLY not intended to be upgraded by the manufacturer.

Ugly Cables.

Webpages that have FIVE BILLION ads.

People who record videos on their phones and hold them in portrait.

People who think they're pro photographers with their smartphones while i'm over here wasting all of my money on lenses for my cannon

Beats. (Need I say more?)

Some other stuff i also ca't think of....

Or even worse, interfaces that force you to do that, like on my router.

  • People who think clearing space on a hard drive makes your computer significantly faster
  • Adware, Junkware, Spyware
  • People who assume because you built a computer that you can fix every computer problem

Console fanboys denying their inferiority (besides PS2. PS2 > all in terms of games).

Team Green vs Team Red (even though I'm Team Green, I don't hate AMD).

Comparing AMD and Intel by raw specs.


Basic guide to CPU's!

If I said I were 14, you would call me a kid. If I say 70, you’ll entitle me too old. If I say 20 you say I’m inexperienced and if I say 40 than I'm too boring.

Your issue with is?

 

Because subwoofers (the majority of them) were not designed to work up on your desk, out in the open, close to your ear. They're designed to work in a "chambered" environment - such as in the corner of the room and or under your desk. They actually use the space/chamber under your desk as a means of amplifying and projecting the sound. Having them right up close to you and out in the open will drown them out and make them sound flat. Having them under your desk will produce a much more full and rich sound - as they were meant to be heard. You'll not only hear it better, but feel it as well (explosions, impacts etc.). 

 

Audio is a funny animal and subwoofers are stranger still. They should not be positioned like a typical speaker. By even just placing a small sub behind your monitor instead of out in the open on your desk will give better results.
