  1. Honestly I'm not surprised its Ericsson I'm not sure who else put up a decent effort to get the contract
  2. Part of me wants to go back to when I just had a ati radeon 6450 and an i3 2120. I miss those days of fighting with ini files to squeak out every fraction of a fps increase, but these days I dont have the time to modify files. The balances of life changes, now I have money but little time. 

  3. I got my new motherboard this morning and got really nostalgic all of a sudden, the pc I built back in 2014 impacted my life massively, I wont go into details but if you knew me from my old news days on this forum then you will remember how amazing it all was. A lot has changed since I used to be so immersed in tech but I wanted to go back and look at my old parts vs my new parts starting with my motherboard. So this is the first pc part I got, the Gigabyte Z87X-UD5H The most insane deal, it was £70, brand new, the person that bought it got a a
  4. Hot take: PC cases now are honestly pathetic compared to what we had 5 years ago, my hard drive options are limited, nearly every case has side intakes instead of the front. NZXT literally have a single model. Barely any cases have 4 front usb ports have without 5.25 bays I cant add one. In terms of raw functionality I feel like the Corsair 750D Airflow Edition is the best I can find and thats nearly 7 years old.

      If it sells, it's clearly what people want. It's not manufacturer's faults you want things no one else really cares about.

      I like to play movies so I kinda need the ODD

       

      streaming or downloading is nearly impossible considering my connection is 1Mbps, and that's the fastest there is in my city, better to pay $1 for a Joker release with subs in korean than nothing

      I am stuck in the past honestly but the stuff back then is better for my needs, I am the type of user that requires a lot of storage, I have 5x3.5inch drives which will be moving to my new pc, with an ssd that will be retired due to nvme being a viable option. 

  5. How the hell does Fire emblem three houses look better then persona 5

  6. Started looking into making a new pc since my 2014 based machine is starting to struggle well mainly the i5 4670k. I spent £700 back then, to match that with a modern i5, 16gb ram, same case etc etc somehow is £300 more. I get that tech has progressed but holy crap its got so much more expensive.

      Thank you Intel, very cool!

       

      Ryzen 3000 looks really promising so far, especially since the price of RAM has also gone down. I'd just give the platform a little time to mature. Board prices are high, but X470/B450 work just fine.

  7. It's 2019 yet I'm configuring routers worth more then my annual wage over dial up. 

  8. Trying to get nested if statements to work in excel is going to be the death of me.

  9. Two years ago I dropped out of university with £15000 debt to show for it.

    One year ago I reset passwords and basically changed inbox permissions for 8 hours a day.

    Today(well yesterday) i was staging routers for foreign embassies. 

     

    Honestly really fun working for an ISP, aside from the 14 hour shift to get everything done and a mini heart attack from nearly dropping a cisco 4451.

  10. I dont think this is true at least in one case, my mate backed phoenix point and based off the dividend they must have gotten up front cash. Not sure if thats with all epic deals, im sure they are all slightly different.
  11. Seems like a pretty cool project, wish I had the patience to do stuff like that, i just cant be asked lol. That being said the t300 i use has a lot already.
  12. im up for buying a next gen console but not going to completely switch to console gaming again, its just so expensive to do that, games are more expensive and ps+ is a thing.
  13. Damn people here really dont like Huawei, honestly it just seems like the AI messed up, seems like a fringe case to me.
  14. I think its one to ignore, in two or three months the next Honor phone will come out and if its anything like the trend the Honor 10 set last year it will cannibalise Huawei's lower end products.
  15. I bought a dead EVGA GTX 650ti to turn into a drinks coaster for £7, on amazon a god awful rubber circle coaster is £10. One mans trash is another mans.....coaster?

      Tear off the GPU. Make it a keychain. Use PCB as a coaster.

      The evga shroud is pretty much a flat block, once you take off the rear bracket it will sit flat, I sanded down the pcb a bit so it doesnt murder my table and superglued the fan so it will not move, its quite stable. Gonna try a cpu heatsink next.
