    Vivilacqua1 reacted to Romano2K in Clickbait titles and thumbnails   
    Hello!
     
    I've been a loyal subscriber of the Linus Tech Tips channel for years even though I've never posted on the forum.
     
    I'm posting for the first time to share my opinion before it's too late.
     
    I just wanted to say that I never click on content with clickbait titles or dumb thumbnails by principle. Unfortunately, more and more Linus Tech Tips videos on your YouTube channel have those.
     
    Here are a few examples:
     
    I don't click:
    We NEVER expected NVIDIA to allow this... How has EVERYONE overlooked this?? Why would you even…? Razer thought this was a good idea?? I can't believe this. I click:
    Alienware's CRAZY upgradeable laptop The OLED Gaming TV from ALIENWARE!! Preparing for 10 GIGABIT Internet! What Could Go Wrong? (even though I could do without the "What could go wrong") Electrical Wiring for the Gaming Center - What could go wrong? (I see a pattern…) MacBook Air 2018 – A PC Guy's Perspective "Water" Cooled Smartphone - S#!t Manufacturers Say Are Walmart Gaming PCs actually THAT bad? In general thumbnails have all been dumb for a few months now, with the "mandatory" funny and/or exaggerated face and the white outline. Thumbnails used two years ago with just the products were fine!
     
    You have 8 million subscribers interested in computers, I'm not sure that they need these tactics to watch your videos.
     
    I may be the only one to feel that way, and if so I would understand that you ignore this "rant", but I hope that I'm not alone, that other people feel the same and that hopefully you'll adapt to this portion of your audience.
     
    I still like many of your videos, I hope you'll keep posting good ones!

    A 15" laptop screen will already have near 150ppi, which is about the same as a 27" 4k display, so basically it'll look exactly the same, and I already have to use 125% scaling on my 4k display.

    The Matebook D with an R5 2500U is a pretty solid machine and can run lighter games without issue. Otherwise you want to find something with an i5 8th gen(4 core 8 threads) or an i7, with at least an MX150 GPU, but you have to make sure it's the full MX150 and not the cut down GPU with the same name.

    Vivilacqua1 got a reaction from bennyy49 in MSI 970 Gaming MOBO Problem   
    I thought I read somewhere else someone was having this issue, and it ended up being stuff from thermal pads off something.
     
    I wouldn't worry about it unless your pc shuts off.

    What would work best is connecting via a powered network switch so that the computers can all play on the same intranet

    Yah, it just doesn't work very well. When I try to scroll or zoom around, it moves the whole spreadsheet, and sometimes crashes.

    Vivilacqua1 got a reaction from Nibiru480 in Best prebuilt?   
    Ignore the people who keep telling you to build it yourself after you have said many times you don't want to. If I were in your position, I would select the parts that fit my budget and have a professional shop do the building in your city. That way if they fuck up, it's on them, not you.

    no, it turns like shit and isn't the fastest. The RE-7B I think it's called is the fastest especially if you put a better spoiler in it.

    Vivilacqua1 got a reaction from Wauthar in Is the game worth it?   
    For me, it's not the most fun game to play right now, but I am happy to see where it goes and know I will like it. It's the community that makes it great right now. For many its a bug ridden pre alpha with little gameplay, but if you don't mind that and just want to hang out with people and play a game together every weekend, there you go. If not, wait a year and come back again, and it will have more depth to it.

    Ok, I did some research online for the BSOD. 
     
    http://www.windowswally.com/how-to-fix-the-critical_process_died-error/
     
    Try what it says. Also, if you can, do a repair install (or an in place upgrade). I suspect there might be a windows error causing this.

    Vivilacqua1 reacted to GoodBytes in Windows Phone sales drops below 1%   
    To join the Insider program to get Windows 10 Mobile for your phone, you need to get this app:
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/apps/windows-insider/9wzdncrfjbhk
     
    Once you install it, run it, and follow the wizard. And join the Fast Ring.
    You will need to restart the phone after (the app will do that for you), and once booted back up, now check for updates, and it should show up. If it's like Windows 10 desktop, you may need to wait several hours before it shows up after you check (takes time to join the required wave, and once in, now Windows Update will show the new build).
     
    To recover your phone back to Windows Phone 8, in the case you want to:
    You can download and run on your PC, the Windows Device Recovery Tool: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/10662/windows-phone-recover-my-phone
    It is also a good way to check and upgrade your firmware if your carrier is blocking them. This will help you get a better experience out of your phone.
    The problem is that this tool will also format everything form your phone, so backup your stuff before. The tool should be able to tell your your current firmware, and latest one available for your phone before starting anything.

    Vivilacqua1 reacted to Okjoek in Tested: Mechanical Keyboards   
    A number of years ago the build team of Mythbusters was testing a myth about cannons and they had a misfire. It ricochet off the hill that was designed to act as a backstop and flew into a residential neighborhood nearby. Nobody was injured or killed, but there was property damage like a hole in a roof and in a car. Supposedly they increased their safety measures permanently after the event which is a positive outcome.
