  1. from the testing i've done way long ago, the difference isnt too much on a 4790k.. it could make numbers a bit better, but i'd also dare state you're better off pocketing the money until you upgrade to a DDR4 platform.
  2. that's not a website builder, that's just an admin tool. i suggest you keep using the websites as you're used to them, and look into the API possibilities of the vareous control panels you need to log into for doing this, depending on the possibilities it's possible you can just make a script that does all the steps by API calls and FTP transfers. also, for optimizing the process of actually making a website.. make a few template websites in your software of choice, let your 'customers' choose a template, and just copypaste content into the chosen template. also, from t
  3. a website builder is a very dynamic situation with lots of potential for security gaps, a premade template for something can be assumed to be absolute minimal effort. might i remind you that the hilareously plain "flash game collection" websites of yesteryear were often a target of mailicous payloads, despite the fact there was literally nothing a user could do there besides click links? FloRolf actually put it pretty nicely: It may be more helpful to park the debate on the existance of a 'website builder builder', and talk about what your end goal with this is, beca
  4. security is about more than payment processors.. unless you are really into bad actors finding backdoors to place malicious payloads on your server.
  5. so.. you want a website builder for website builders... if that exists, i guarantee you the end result will be horribly secure and hilareously unoptimized... maybe there's a website builder to make website builders for website builders...
  6. so.. i got this theory.. while sitting on the loo.. so dont think i actually believe this, i just found it an interesting 'what if' xD 


    what if the nvidia cryptomining thing isnt nvidia's idea, but a brilliant plot of some board partner?


    all the gaming board partners are squealing to get more margin to meet msrp.. what if there's one board partner that spun nvidia a deal:

    ship us a WAY higher allocation, and our crypto mining partner will pay top dollar for each and every one of them.

    they then spin that allocation into mining cards, and ship those straight out to the partner, who has no problem paying top dollar, because these cards literally print money.


    this would also mean nvidia's profits from crypto are hugely inflated, because they get a notably higher price per chip from the deal, rather than the razor thin margins on the gaming side.

  7. NO FOR GODS SAKE DONT. there's a good chance you're overloading caps, making the SoC's run way too hot, etc... just about any components retailer has a wide range of plug power supplies available at just about every voltage imaginable. it's not worth the 15 bucks to potentially blow up a switch...
  8. you may want to check into work before you do this... some companies are very strict on using company equipment for private use, so if someone finds out and makes a big problem about it, you may end up getting fired.
  9. if one brand would be factually better than the other in every way, there would be no reason for the other brand to exist.
  10. important note: this is about driver support, not about running at all. there's some processor families that dont work at all with windows 10, you're just running on a platform that lacks optimizations to run things properly.
  11. is there a way? most likely yes. easy to implement and publicly available? hell no. the way all in-home streaming services i'm aware of work, is by capturing the screen or game window, sending that to the client, and forwarding the button inputs back to the main system. to do what you want, you'd have to modify the game to output directly to the capture system, and have the controller commands input directly into the game. in other words, custom software, most likely modifications to the games, etc..
  12. i'm backing this opinion. it'll probably work, but it's defenately not an ideal scenario.
  13. I've never really encountered the gore stories, i'm usually the guy that ends up finding the "unexpectedly lucky" finds like a 1980's computer with only a few bad characters in the LCD and a dead (not leaky) motherboard battery.
  14. best guesses are either a device along the way is limited to 100Mbps, or a cable is damaged. (100Mbps uses two pairs in the ethernet cable, gigabit uses all four pairs)
