    Rekx reacted to Stuff_ in Deadmau5 watches LTT   
    He's setting up some sweet 5 PC LAN, fitted with cameras in multiple angles, etc. 
    Anyway, he mentioned the $1,000 HDMI cable, so I asked him if he watches LTT often.
    Well, he watches it occasionally. I thought that was cool. I suppose it's expected; Deadmau5 is a pretty tech-savvy guy.

    I feel that a fresh install of windows each year is a good practice to get into, but it is a pain and a minor inconvenience so I don't do it enough, but if you are getting a new boot drive there is no reason why you shouldn't do it.
    Reinstall windows.

    Rekx reacted to DocSwag in Nvidia GP 100 Titan to debut in April, GTX 1080 to launch in June   
    Here is the source http://techfrag.com/2016/01/25/nvidia-2014-2017-gpu-roadmap-pascal-titan-gp100-to-debut-in-april-gtx-1080-in-june-and-volta-in-2017/
    Nvidia's Titan GPU will be debuting in April
    According to techfrag the titan will be coming in April, and the GTX 1080 and 1070 will follow it 2 months later.
    Apparently the cutdown version of the Titan won't be coming until june 2017, meaning that the GTX 1080 Ti won't be with us until next year.
    It seems Nvidia will be releasing the first of their FinFET based GPUs before AMD, which may give them an advantage.
    However most likely AMD will release in time for the GTX 1080 and GTX 1070. However Nvidia will probably dominate the high end gaming market from April to later this year.
    This is probably bad news for AMD, as this means that Nvidia will probably be releasing their first Pascal GPUs before their Polaris ones.

    Rekx reacted to AluminiumTech in CS:GO is the best selling game on steam in 2015. Beats GTA V and Fallout 4.   
    So it appears that CS:GO (an almost 3 year old game) sold more copies this year than Fallout 4 (a month old game) and Grand Theft Auto V for PC (a 6 month old game ).
    This is quite interesting as usually as a game gets older the amount of sales slowly decrease. Usually most sales (probably around 70%) happen within 6 months after release with 30% happening after the 6 months. (MY estimations, not factual in any way shape or form).



    How did more people pick Arkham Knight than Mad max?
    Might be due to marketing, advertising and the Sheep lining up to buy Batman games.

    Rekx reacted to L4RRY in Using Ubiquiti to get 200/15 Fibre to my Farm (with pics)   
    After seeing Linus mention Ubiquiti on the latest WAN show, and their discussion about people getting fast connections to remote places, I thought I would share a project log with you guys to show you how I got a fibre optic connection from the nearest village to my farm 500m away.
    When I moved to my farm back in June, I called the ISP and was told I could get "up to" 1mbit broadband. Having moved from a town house which had been blessed with 150mbit for a few years, this was something I could not settle for. I discovered that the nearest village was served by Virgin Media's fibre optic and figured there must be a way to get this service to my farm. Obviously the first thing I did was contact Virgin Media to get a quote to put in a line. After some negotiation, the cheapest they could offer me was £7,000; and that was if I dug the trench myself.
    Then I came across Ubiquiti. After a good discussion on another forum, I put together a plan and 5 weeks later I went from having 1mbit broadband to what is effectively a 200/15 FTTH connection.
    The plan basically consisted of me gaining permission from my nearest neighbour to mount a Ubiquiti NanoBeam 5AC along with a external cabinet, on his wall and then "beaming" the connection over to my farm.
    I hope you find my project interesting and maybe even inspiring and if there is anything you want to ask me, I'll be happy to answer.
    So this is where it all begins. Packed inside a compact, weatherproof box is all the equipment need to give me a connection. Here we can see a dual socket power point, powering the fibre modem itself as well as a power over ethernet (POE) converter used for powering the Ubiquiti NanoBeam 5ac. Its a tight fit but I wanted to get the smallest possible box to reduce the visual impact on the neighbours wall. The coax connection comes through the bottom of the box into the modem, from the modem a cat5e runs into the POE converter and finally another ethernet runs from the POE up to the Ubiquiti wireless transmitting hub.     This is a view of the whole setup on the neighbours house. As you can see, the coax comes out of the ground after running along the property boundary from the road. They actually ran a new cable from the cab for me, it doesn't split off the existing connection. The upper cable coming from the Sky dish is the power cable which connects in the neighbours loft through a fused box. The cable running up the middle is the ethernet running to the white Ubiquiti transmitting hub.     This is a view from the neighbours house to the receiving hub. The dish is mounted on the telegraph pole which can be seen in the middle of the photo, just to the left of the woodland. The total distance between the two hubs is around 450m.     A picture from the halfway point between the two hubs showing both hubs.     And here is a picture from the receiving pole, back to the neighbours house.         This picture shows the connection between the receiving hub to the house itself. The total length of cat5e used was about 73m. The distance to the house from the pole is about 60m with a further 13m running around the house to the rear office. The cable is supported by a length of steel cable which is taught between the pole and the house. I then simply cable tied the ethernet to the steel cable. There is about 1m of excess at the pole end in case I need to make repairs.       Here you can see the cable running around the outside of the house and finally through the wall and into the office.     And finally the office where the connection is received.       As mentioned before, the superhub is in modem mode with the two Ubiquiti wireless hubs set into bridge; so they are essentially (and as far as any receiving equipment are concerned) a really long cable. After passing though another POE converter, the connection is received by a Asus RT-N66U router. The main desktop is connected via ethernet, with other devices making use of the wireless.   Here is a couple of printscreens of the Ubiquiti hub interface. There is a bit of tweaking to do hear and there but ultimately it is working as it should. Not bad considering I only lined up the dishes by eye. The channel width 40mhz. The extremely low noise levels in the rural area are probably helping things. I am not all too clued up on a lot of this sort of stuff so any tweaks will be carried out with the help of a mate who is a network engineer.    As you can see there is a <1ms ping between the two devices with a total throughput of ~300mbit.         The connection has been live for several months now and I've not had a single blip. I am a happy man

    I've been following this game on and off since it's announcement months ago. It's based off of UE4 and it's been showing real progress these past couple of months. It's set to release on Steam as an Early Access game on Dec 15th(so in a few hours) *it is now released.. They are supposedly asking $40 USD, no information on "Special Editions" or anything of the sort. They plan to bring the game out of Early Access in late 2016, so in a year from now.
