Thread For Tech Quickie Video Suggestions

Recommended Posts

I don't think there's been a Tech Quickie about Windows Subsystem for Linux (I've suggested this in the past). With WSL2 coming up in the summer, it would be a great opportunity to talk about WSL1 vs WSL2 and WSL in general.

 

Thanks for the great content!

Linus, Voice of IP (VOIP) would be great to see on Techquickie! Keep up the good work, I am learning a lot.

MocA internet. I remember you guys did powerline so this seems relevant. 

 

An old house I will be living in doesn't have ethernet ports so I wanted to learn more about it.

TQ: Suggestion. do a video on common ways people get hacked, or security measures you can take and set up under 5 minutes, that will go long way.

some examples :

 

0. Update OS and apps

1.make sure if your AV is not disabled like firewall and scanner.

2. wifi password and VPN

3. encrypted drive.

4.2FA

5. canary tokens (here a website that generates them, there are a lot out there ) https://www.stationx.net/canarytokens/ 

6. a couple of other tools https://www.stationx.net/cyber-security-tools-guide/ // I'm not promoting them.

7. human stupidity and a lot more

 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

having a decent video on this topic that we can send to everyone would be really neat. maybe make it in 2-3 part series explaining common ways of people getting hacked and infected and what basic measures to take to combat it. 

 

*i put this originally in floatplane video "TQ. Are Macs Really Safer?" + https://www.floatplane.com/video/iFT8tGEgR3 and a lot of people wanted it

Flat panel monitor types explained.

QLED

 

Please also describe the different panel types, and include the differences in color representation, viewing angle, potential blurring from movement on the screen and any other relevant technology differences.

AMVA
IPS
MVA
PLS
TN
VA

 

Additional information that would be nice to include would be contrast ratio, pixel pitch, response time and refresh rate.

hey all

 

 I have an idea that might be appealing to other people as well.
I am referring to the DPI or PPI concept for monitors.

I know it's a pretty straightforward concept, however...

if a monitor like philips 49" ultra wide with 5120*1440 = 7.37MP gets a 108.54 PPI, how come the 43" model with a 4K resolution (3840*2160 = 8.29MP) gets a rating of only 102.46 PPI?
shouldnt more overall pixels (8.29 vs 7.37) on a smaller sized monitor (43" vs 49")  give a more dense ppi ?
well apparently not...
Y is that?

:)

Overclocking AFAP. Also cover undervolting and all the other similar concepts. I'm not sure if AFAP is the best platform for this. Maybe the best channel would be a better fit.

It's hard to find great sources on the internet that really go cover basics. Then maybe a full overclocking guide on both AMD, Intel, and Nvidia products.
