    In a sense, it's still going, though, @NerdNinja. We meet up every Saturday at the same time (9PM BST). I see you are already on our Discord server, so just feel free to join the voice chat and play with us when it's on.
     
    For anyone else, we no longer use TS, you can find us on Discord @ http://discord.uoltt.org

    NerdNinja reacted to Scheer in Would Like Some Help Building a Sous Vide Cooker   
    I'd never understood how this was possible, since if you prepped it in the morning the meat would be sitting all day at room temperature and spoil before it started cooking... so I just looked into it and all you do is put a bunch of ice in the water, I can't believe I didn't think of that lol.
     
    Now that I realize this, I actually may use the app... thanks!

    You should actually be fine. Framerates are still limited by netcode.
    If you really want an upgrade, get a GTX1060 or a RX480 and you'll be fine.

    "Smart phones and dumb people"
     
    seriously though. I hate how simple it is to use any piece of technology. I feel like I'm being pushed along a path for the most part. Do this do that without any real way of being able to tinker with most products because of software limitations. *couchapplecough*
    i hear stories and sometimes I wish I was born before all this ease of use stuff. At least make a class in k-12 mandatory that teaches how a computer works.
     
    it saddens me to see how many people are able to "use" technology but are unable to truly use it if that makes sense to you guys.

    In America, which is where TMC is from (side not he's one state above me), the standard is 110V. And I think they use 220V in Europe? I'm probably wrong there, but you'll only see 220 in america if it's with heavy equipment or some big appliance.

    I had a very long argument with my friend from Poland about this
     
    This was about when I learned that other parts of the world used more than 110V, the way she described it was that you could use the same appliance, for example a coffee brewer from America that runs on 110V in Poland but on 220V. That's the way she explained it and I kept saying the coffee brewer would fry!
     
    It was quite the back and forth battle until it got sorted out. She explained it wrong but then again english was not her first language.

    We own appliances from different parts of the world (thanks to import surplus shops) and the patterns are as such:
    120V 60Hz or 240V 60Hz
    I've only seen the 120V 60Hz on stuff from the USA... the rest use 240V...
    Our system runs 220V 60Hz and there are no problems with running 240V appliances without a step-up transformer...
    My mother did break a VHS player (120V) when she plugged it in without a transformer...
