  1. Shitty laptop comparison:

    Should I choose an AMD a4 chip or an Intel Celeron chip? Used for basic word processing and some light program usage tasks. 

     

  2. Not sure how to ask this question to Google. 

    Windows thinks I have 2 hard drives with windows 10 on each. but in fact i only have one. Therefore, every time I boot up, I need to tell Windows Boot Manager to use the hard drive that's actually there. How do I make it forget the old HDD?

    1. Levent

      Download BCDedit and delete the boot entry that you don't use. (TRIPLE CHECK BEFORE APPLYING YOUR SETTINGS)

      What entries show up in msconfig for you?

    3. YedZed

      YedZed

      msconfig was the solution in the end. Thanks @Den-Fi and @Levent

  3. Has anyone else used Blloc Ratio?

      *posts a response to asking if anyone has had experience with something just to say that i haven't had experience with it and you'll now be mad at me for getting your hopes up with this notification

      I'd say it's minimal in its look. It makes it hard enough to use your phone compulsively that it could be lumped in with those apps, but it does have a high degree of customization. I don't think it's about actually being simple. It's more about being less distracting. 

  4. I am ridiculously lucky to be in the exact position I am in in life. 

    But reading my program's new Coronavirus regulations is a BIT anxiety inducing

  5. FUCK EVERY SINGLE COLLEGE SITE THAT IS REGION LOCKED SO I CAN'T EVEN DO A SIMPLE APPLICATION WITHOUT REMOTING INTO MY DADS COMPUTER BECAUSE SOMEHOW VPNs DON'T WORK

      SERIOUSLY THOUGH WHAT THE FACK COLLEGE BOARD

      ALSO WHILE I'M AT IT, FUCK 3/4 OF THE TECH SUPPORT CALLS OF THE PAST DAY. THAT ONE CALL WAS PRETTY CHILL CUZ WE ENDED UP JUST TELLING DUMB TECH SUPPORT STORIES TO EACH OTHER BUT THE OTHER 3, FUCK THOSE.

  6. Found a laptop dumped on the side of the road in a very religious neighborhood near Jerusalem today. It didn't have a battery in it, and I figured they trashed it. Buuuut the hard drive still has files on it. I snooped a lil bit and found the name of the owner, gonna see if they want the hard drive back. 

    I feel like I'm in a moral grey area?

      If you get in trouble for this, then Israel has officially lost it...

  7. My phone and my charger are being really odd. Each component works separately, the cable, the wall wart, my phone charging port itself, but all together they won't work at all... And now my phone is at 0 percent but it's still on cuz it's plugged in but the battery itself won't charge.

      wall wart

      Can't say I've heard that one before! 😂

      @Techstorm970 Really? Coulda sworn LTT said it at some point in a video.

    3. Techstorm970

      Techstorm970

      @YedZed I rarely watch LTT's videos anymore haha...

  8. Is there anything stopping me from using YouTube as a low key plex server type service? 

    In other words, I could upload movies that I have on my computer, make them unlisted videos, and stream them from anywhere.

     

    Concern would be, would YouTube flag it as pirating content?

      You can buy multi year unlimited google drive subscriptions off RedditBay for like $7 and that would be a viable alternative. Or use MEGA as it’s 50gbs free. If you use handbrake accordingly you can get around 38 movies in there 

    3. YedZed

      YedZed

      Hmm true but streaming off Google drive is usually a bit spotty, no? I would just use Google photos if not for that issue

      Compression, file ownership and possible copyrighting, simply not worth using youtube like that

  9. Okay so theoretically, if I had a pirated copy of a game (sayyyyyy, GTA V) and then installed a real copy on top of it, would it work, or would it make a bunch of new files in the same folder? (the goal being to save download data on a metered connection)

    (P.S. I'm not condoning anything... this is a PURELY hypothetical situation.)

    1. WereCat

      WereCat

      save data should work (for Single Player mode)

       

      the game may not work by simply copying the original over the cracked one depending on how the game was cracked and you will most likely have to reinstall it from scratch

  10. Has anyone tried the Ratio Launcher from Blloc? 

  11. Anyone here play Stellaris? I have a really weird bug.

    My minerals are at -1k, but up until a few days ago (IRL) my monthly trade with the galactic market took care of that easy peasy. Now, the game keeps telling me my min max price isn't good, even though I HAVEN'T SET ONE. 

    I tried hiking the mineral trade up slowly, increasing the amount by little bits every month until I got to 1.2k, when it just bugs out and says the min max price is stopping the trade. I tried again, now it stops at 600. And if I increase by too large of an amount, boom gone. And remember, I didn't set a min max at all!

    Can't find this specific bug anywhere.

  12. Been playing DND over Discord recently, pretty fun.

      wow, i also have 3 drives and of identical capacity as you. What a coincidence 😮

  13. So happy I have my dorm gaming machine during social distancing 

  14. Anyone got experience fixing headphone batteries? 

    My Sennheiser HD 4.50 BTNC battery random shorted I guess and now it doesn't work at all. I can technically use it with an AUX cable, but the noise canceling and Bluetooth is fucked. Its out of warranty by like a year, but I don't wanna just chuck them in the trash. 

    1. Levent

      Levent

      Check what kind of battery it uses, it's really easy to replace them as long as they aren't custom lion cells. If that's the case you have to order one.

    2. YedZed

      YedZed

      How would i go about checking? Just googling specs? @Levent

  15. Is there any application that can transcribe rocordings like Google recorder does, but after the fact, from an mp3?
