    Thorium19 got a reaction from Mel0nMan in Experiences with non-techies   
    my granddad updated his iPad to IOS-7 over Christmas, then called me to say he had "lost Google". he failed to realise that the search bar and address bar had become one, even when typing in the web address for it and seeing the "do you mean" bar show it up.
    recently, he also updated his mac book to mavericks, after we discovered he had bought it in 2009 and had never updated it, because he thought he may lose all of his data. when we did update it, we managed to get locked out of half the applications, as he had set up passwords for accounts and then promptly forgotten them. it was sorted eventually, but not after discovering he has a book filled with all of his passwords and accounts he has ever had online. it was like sifting through a library to find the relevant ones.
     
    another one I had in school today was when i was looking at the Puget oil cooled systems they offer, and i had a number of people come over and ask why would you build a computer in a fish tank. this was promptly followed after an explanation by asking can you put fish in it. this included people who were doing A-level biology.

    They do every time. Hence why I tell people Wait for the goddamn benchmarks.

    Thorium19 got a reaction from kelvinhall05 in What layout would you want in a custom keyboard?   
    60-65% is my preferred size. Right now I have a magicforce 68, but I'm starting building a 60% using the HS60 PCB. I just wish that you could get slightly taller than 60% boards with the F row added, but no others.
    As said above, QMK or VIA is a must for the firmware, as it gives so much more flexibility to what keys people have set up.

    Thorium19 got a reaction from gloop in Looking for Anime recommendations!   
    that time I was reincarnated as a slime is on crunchyroll and is a top quality "died and went to another world" anime (isekai is the genre name)
    Attack on titan is a good shout. I personally am not a fan of it, but it's one of the most popular shows for a reason. It's also on crunchyroll, but the first season is available on netflix
    If you like going down the lore rabbit hole, try watching Fate Zero, which is on netflix. F0 is IMO the best intro to the fate anime franchise, afterwards you can watch fate stay night unlimited bladeworks and the fate stay night movies. But avoid the original fate stay night that came out in 2006 IMO, it's not very good.
    Fate will take you down a path you'll never recover from, if you decide to delve into the lore. Gigguk did a really entertaining video on just how confusing the lore is, which is well worth a watch.

    Thorium19 got a reaction from Mateyyy in RTX 3080 image (maybe?)   
    oh god, those fermi shrouds 🤮 
    These designs look off, because that's the top of the card on the bottom cooler, where the backplate is, yet the fan is visible, which would indicate a really short PCB for the top end card, which will be encouraging for really small form factor people. It also looks horrific having a fan visible from the backplate, way too much of a flashback for my liking. Guess it'll be up to the AIB partners to make good looking cards this time round.

    Thorium19 got a reaction from Newblesse Obblige in what kind of adhesive is used for putting wood and glass together? for PC desk   
    just an alternative, but if the wood is thick enough, you could drill some wide holes in the top of it, then glue some glass spacers? (not sure on the exact name) on the underside of the glass. These will slot into the holes drilled and hold the glass in place. It'll make the glass easier to remove in case you need to move the table or do something beneath the glass.

    Thorium19 got a reaction from Slayerking92 in Intel acquire Rivet net, maker of Killer (what you think))   
    I have a killer nic on my current motherboard, and if I installed their network suite then it just ruined my home network for anything but my PC, and finding their basic driver package at the time was mad, it was buried deep in their website. So glad my new PC will have an intel nic & wifi, good ridance killer and their awful marketing products.

    Thorium19 reacted to kelvinhall05 in Raspberry Pi Might Get a Rival.   
    Stuff like this exists already, the reason that they haven't been true competitors to the Pi is because they cost like 10x as much.

    here in the UK on three, I get unlimited data, calls and texts for £20 a month on a 12 month rolling sim only contract. That also includes their roaming package that lets me use my data abroad in something like 50+ countries for no extra charge.

    Thorium19 got a reaction from AfonsoJR in Pewdiepie! - We built you a gaming PC!   
    This build was actually really fun to see come together from an engineering standpoint, I'd love to see LTT try their hand at more game themed custom PCs, maybe something for cyberpunk 2077? 👀
     
    I'm not going to make a comment on the controversy other than pewdiepies humour is satirical and should be taken with a pinch of salt. If people can't take things as a joke like "coronachan" then they might want to avoid ever watching any comedy by Frankie Boyle, as that's far far worse.

    I'm the modder of the Creeper Case they reference in the  video! Very awesome they gave me credit for it, and I appreciate it a lot! He did mention his was better and I don't know about all of that... :D. If they want to do a case mod contest I'm ready whenever!
     
    Honestly, I like the visual looks of mine but the all the pc components in the head was a pain to work with. They did a good job with there component setup for sure.

    Don't have a picture to hand, but I currently drive a 2012 ford KA zetec. cos I'm only driving to university and back really, it's perfect for city driving, but once I finally graduate I'm going to need something a bit sturdier to take on motorway traffic most days, so I'm looking at the mini paceman, VW scirocco and Alfa Romeo Giulietta at the minute. Sadly the Honda CRZ is a bit too pricey on insurance, otherwise I'd quite like one of those, or an old audi TT.

    I used to use revo as well, it was really good for picking up extra files, but since I did a refresh on my PC about 18 months ago, I haven't bothered to use anything other than windows uninstaller, as it's mainly just steam games I'll probably redownload later on anyway.
