  1. Oh hi hey there how ya doing ? 

     

     

    You can finally unfollow from Status Updates now ! Hell to the yeah !

     

     

    Due to the new mutated strain of the not so new anymore Corona Virus Switzerland has put in place tougher restrictions trying to avoid another Lockdown even tho cases are rising no matter what. Don't ask me why we don't just do another Lockdown of 3 Months like last year like all of the other European Countries do/did. So now there isn't a suggestion for Home Office anymore but rather it is Mandatory to work remotely where possible so of course this also counts for my school. We'll be doing Online Classes again till the end of February of it the situation doesn't get worse. Thankfully the voluntary coaching/tutoring lesson on Saturday is still taking place from which I can benefit a lot from, my school got a special permit from the Canton to be able to still do these lessons on Saturday morning as I got accustomed to. Also my apprentice trainer actually requires me to visit these lessons and then I have to bring him the confirmation sheet with the Teachers Signature to prove that I attended the lesson. So yea getting up at 6 am at 6 times a week is fun /s

     

     

    On a for me personally more Negative note: My Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter is broken again. Water leaked inside the Handle bar onto the Daughter board thus causing corrosion on the Screws holding the board in and on some of the Surface Mounted Components for the one and only Button on the Vehicle. This Button is used to Turn On, Turn Off, Switch between the ride modes (ECO = 15 km/h, Standard = 20 km/h and Sport = 25 km/h) and turn on the Headlight.It took me and my Dad a couple of hours to Troubleshoot this issue and to assemble the Handlebar and Display assembly. But Amazon to the rescue ! They have almost every replacement part for my Scooter including probably and hopefully the right Daughter board. Will have to cross check all the info I can find on the broken one and hopefully be able to get the exact same one brand new for relatively cheap.

      Buy a bunch of dumb parts.

      They are being shipped and will show up in a few days.

      Ask the forum what they think of your dumb parts.

      When you can't find good reviews but take the plunge anyway and then a week later HWUB comes out with a video praising the monitor you bought.

      Super nice 😄

      That feeling tho when Gamers Nexus praises your 5700 XT as the one with the best cooler and PCB component quality...

  3. Another Xtorm USB Power Hub XPD18 Cube Pro and two USB A to C Xtorm charging Cables for a charging setup at my Night stand for the iPhone, Apple Watch and Bose Sleepbuds. 2 Pilot Frixion Clickers for school in Black and Blue, a new Bell for my Mountainbike and reflective stickers from Scotch for my Xiaomi Electric Scooter:
  4. Hell yeah the GPU architecture which is named after me is getting another hurrah. inb4 sold out

    Thank you guys !

     

    It's been snowing heavily the past week here in Switzerland. This is a shot of the road leading upto my school in the City where I go to school at:

    This is a typical old town Town Center with the Train and Bus Station off to the right behind me.

     

    My Impressions of the Apple Watch have been pretty great so far, luckily the solo loop fits snugly. The Watch is extremely responsive and fluent as we expect from Apple, integration with the iPhone couldn't be more seamless. Call Quality is really excellent, you can not only receive but obviously also make calls with it since it's the 4G LTE Version. WhatsApp, Discord and Gmail Notifs show up natively and don't require a separate App on the Watch. At work I just have my gloves and Jacket or Hoodie sleeve over it so I don't scratch it. 

     

    Bose Sleepbuds 2 are great to sleep with and work as expected, you can adjust the setting so that the white noise stops playing after a Certain time. Since I tend to sleep in after about half an hour I've got it set to only play the sounds for so long. Like my Sony WF-1000XM3s the Sleepbuds too do block off to noise by just having them in so I haven't woken up to a random noise yet. 

     

    I sold off my old Garmin Fenix 5X Sapphire for 245 CHF yesterday.

  8. This is the photo album of Jessie and Jaba. These are all the photos of them without any friends or family members on them. I'll try to keep it updated as I or my brother take new photos of them. Jessie is a 7 year old Appenzeller Bernese Mountain Dog mix, her Birthday is on the 7th of December 2012. Jaba is a 2 year old Appenzeller Border Collie mix, her Birthday is on the 19th of December 2017. Enjoy !
  9. Happy Doggos: Yes Jessie and Jaba have the same Duck toy.
  10. So last week I didn't make it for the first lesson in the Morning which is Sports at all because my connection being dropped, my Bus didn't even drive due to heavy snow falls. And now my freaking train departured right as I stepped out of the Bus. Should this happen a third time then I'm gonna get a fine from the school of up to 40 CHF which in of itself isn't bad it's just the fact that I'm still on my probation and each little Bullshit gets added to the pile and then my Boss has lots of reasons to not let me continue my apprenticeship. Let's just hope that my future connections will work and I don't lose my job.

      Wait, so you're going to be fined by your school for being late because of something that you can't control? 

    2. soldier_ph

      soldier_ph

      @lexusgamer05 Yeah pretty much. It's school policy to fine students when they arrive too late 3 times. I now have two more times where I can arrive too late to class and get away with it. You'll also get fined for not doing your Homework and for behaving bad/being rude constantly. 

    3. lexusgamer05

      lexusgamer05

      Wow, that's interesting. I guess it would work, nobody wants to be fined. Although it would be good to have exceptions for situations like yours.

  11. "Brand New" Nvidia GPU who dis ?

    It'll be so funny if this too was immediately out of stock and selling on eBay for 200+ $ 😂

      Well, given the fact that all Pascal GPUs have a full-fledged HEVC and VP9 hardware decoder, that thing makes WAY more sense in media boxes and in iGPU-less systems than the GT710 does. Just last year I've seen a desktop with a Core i3-9100being sold (which retails for the exact same price as the regular one with the iGPU) and they tossed in a GT710 instead....That thing is utterly useless for even YouTube or streaming services as mostly they require HEVC/VP9 for higher resolutions, not to mention that the performance is probably not even on par with a modern iGPU, even the UHD Graphics 620/630.

      Now with AMD jacking up prices Intel starts looking more compelling. Similar price but integrated graphics.

      And yes you would buy those things for the encoder/decoder or for basic graphics output.

  12. This new Trend is as stupid as the removal of the Headphone Jack. Stop it.
