If I remember correctly, Ivan was only at LTT temporarily, as NCIX shut down.

we'll never know for sure, LMG seemed to not want to disclose it, which is fair

I was always into tech since I was a kid (like... 4 y/o-ish) because my parents were both in the IT field and would tell me stories about microchips and such. But I knew nothing about PCs.

It was late 2011/ early 2012 when I started watching LTT, not sure which video is the first one but I went and watch a lot of techquickie and LTT videos to learn more about computer.

Joined the forum in January 2016 (account created a year before but didnt post anything), it was to ask about an issue I was having with the first desktop I built.

Since then I was active on the forum, learning things and helping people (although I was so bad at the beginning that people said I was shitposting)

I learnt a lot about everything while reading and replying. Then I stopped 3-4 months later, either due to lost of interest, or college was resuming. I racked up 8000 posts and just dipped. (Think I even became a meme for having a post on almost every thread.)

Between then and July 2020, I only occasionally pop in to ask questions. Then I resumed being active and started shitposting again. I'm here mainly to help people, since I know the feeling of having an issue and no one being able to help you.

 

probably anxiety/low self-esteem:

Spoiler

lowkey thinks people in LTT hated me back in 2016 because they said I was shitposting when I was trying to help. (probably joking, to be fair)

even today I still think some users on LTT hate me

they probably don't, but I have low self confidence and like to overthink things

 

regarding PSU elitist:

Spoiler

I also never liked the PSU elitist side of the forum, think they overblown the whole "bad psu" issue

 

but while they may be harsh, it's in good intentions, and they've done a good work with the list that helped countless people.

 

I'll just never personally recommend or even comment on PSU related things to not invoke another PTSD (yes I still remember small things like that after many years, because, again, I have low self confidence and remarks like that really stings)

 

to anyone who thinks I'm hating them, I don't hate anyone on this forum. yet


Things I need help with: *new* What can Facebook do to me? Privacy Inquiries

Spoiler

 

 

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

 

Spoiler

 

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer monitors, Gigabyte, Seagate HDD, Kingston SSD, Razer (except their mouse), XiaoMi Phones

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

What did ever happen to Ivan? I know he left LMG a few years ago, but to do what?

Ivan is and forever will be known as "Crazy Russian" in my mind, from the handcam LTT videos in the NCIX office days.

Yea I know that is the current official answer, I just remembered in the past they had mentioned his position was temporary. It wasn't something I made up, just something I remember, but sadly don't remember wherefrom (there is some many hundreds of hours of LTT content, so pretty hard to find that one specific mention :()

But I'll stop the speculation on it now, before I pry too much into personal information.

Slowly, I nibbled on his ear and told him to drop them faster and harder than he does review samples.   Then I looked him in the eyes and said, "I'm entering LMG."  He took it harder than Dennis's body pillow.  The end?  Not for him...this isn't a tech quickie...

who/what introduced you to ltt and lmg as a whole

 

I go back... a long time. Really long time. Can't recall which video was the first one I watched (as YouTube play history doesn't go back that far) but I did end up buying a Patriot Box Office media player (thanks to aasoror for all the custom firmware), Panasonic Eneloop battery set, and a couple Picquic screwdrivers.

It was a techquickie about cpu sockets. Started watching some of the other techquickies then found the ltt channel. First video I saw was the whole room water cooling project.

I really only started watching tech youtubers in about mid 2017, and had occasionally seen an ltt video in my recommended but never clicked. I found out later that techquickie was produced by the same team as ltt, a channel that I had watched on and off since about 2015.

I think this was the first one I watched.
