  1. For LED bulbs since they're often in a complete package that fits into your standard light fixture you're at the mercy of bulb as to whether or not they're dimmable. Some are dimmable some are not, you have to look at the packaging/specs to figure that out. Some power supplies/drivers have support for using leading edge (typical standard AC light dimmer switch in houses) or trailing edge dimmers on the AC lines, but not all power supplies support dimming through AC since the control of the LED has to be done from the power supply/driver forward. The driver has to detect the changes in AC curre
  2. Yup....There are some somewhat reasonable conspiracy's like the death of Jeffrey Epstein where there are still a lot of unanswered questions but these guys have gone down the rabbit hole into a completely different reality. A lot of them are sucked so far in they can't even form coherent thoughts anymore. I know a few guys who were really intelligent people that got caught up in that shit and it's just mind boggling because they're people that used to have a lot of reasoning, logic and thought behind everything they did now have none. They're beyond dumb but at least with shit lik
  3. I've never really looked into virtual credit cards but it's on the to do list since we were just approved for business financing. I would imagine though the benefits are the same. Essentially adding a layer of indirection. Force someone to go down the rabbit hole if they really want your details. I don't think that aliases can really be exploited any more than any free email. As an example if I was getting account banned in a game for hacking I could just spin up a new email just as easily as an alias for getting another account going for a game.
  4. Aliases on their own are only really useful for security and privacy purposes but with a distribution group they become extremely useful. With my office 365 business account we have it setup so I have a ton of aliases for my self and my business partner. Each separate account we sign up for gets its own password and email alias that forwards to a distribution group. We've done this so that its much harder for people to figure out which email accounts are the real accounts making it that much harder for people to break into our stuff. Essentially the email is a second password that
  5. I love this so much. Where I am at we have a significant number of the population that fall into anti-vax, flat earth, Nazi's on the moon, Qanon etc. We've plateaued with our first dose vaccinations at 68% of the eligible population (Age 12+) which goes to show how many people are caught up in that shit. I can understand peoples distrust of the government and media outlets but what I don't get is how people can be so blind to the factual information presented to them. Daily vacinations and total vacinations in Alberta (The Florida of Canada).
  6. I need to get my hands on filament printer as I would love to print that even just to see it in person. The SLA I have is amazing but unfortunately way to small for anything like that.
  7. Not a photographer but a lot of camera's also support burst shooting modes so you could like 10 or 15 or more max quality stills with one press or hold of your capture button essentially performing what you described without the issues of pulling video frames.
  8. On the computer you're hosting your server on. You have to check that your firewall is not blocking incoming and outcoming traffic on those ports. By default most firewalls will shut off basically every port on the computer for the simple fact that having open ports is a great way to get unwanted visitors into your network and computer.
  9. I did not notice that price. I was definitely under the impression they were going to pull the bs of if it looks like a truck it will be priced like a truck lol. That definitely makes things a lot more interesting since thats like 16-20k cheaper than anything else. I think for the 20k US they're asking that's very reasonable for what it is. That's about a price point where many of these smaller trucks should be or at least like 20-27k USD range. That's one thing that bugged me when I was truck shopping in 2019, price was definitely a sticking point for me. I was originally looking at Tacoma's,
  10. For me I feel like this is the same thing as a honda ridgeline. It doesn't have the space, the payload or towing to be useful as a truck and it doesn't have the seating capacity or enclosed cargo space that you would get with an SUV. The lack of locking diffs and a tcase for 4High and 4low also kind of kills it for me since the lack of 4x4 is also massive loss of possible utility. To me the entire point of a truck is utility and I feel like this is a perfect storm where it simply doesn't have any utility other than you can have a piece of plywood hanging 4ft out of the truck. Ultim
  11. All about that Hakko life. Though some of the best tools and equipment I have used are cheapies I would generally agree that high quality equipment from well known brands is the way to go since you can't always trust that cheaper/unknown companies didn't leave the tip floating at some arbitrary voltage.
  12. Its not abnormal for blender to crush CPU's but those temps are pretty off even for that. I would check/reseat the mount on your cooler and retest. Edit: Just reread the post. Is that 76C from previous renderings in the past on the same system or different? If its the same system I would maybe wonder about whether or not your pump on your AIO is working.
  13. I've always bought 1000ft rolls from monoprice. They seem decent. I don't know what t hey have for ready made cables but for bulk calbing and connectors its a quick and easy way to make your own cables. https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=41484
