  2. @Kilrah lmao that's crazy! I've actually been living here for over 3 years and each summer was legit hell it's only this year that I finally decided to get an AC. I have these weird swiveling windows though so I have to get a special kind of Sealing for it to work efficiently. @Benji not that bad it was a little over 400 and has almost 1000 good reviews on amazon so I guess it's alright.
  3. Bought an AC because I live in the attic and this week we'll get over 30°C, which means close to 9000000°C in the flat. Due to work from home I finally had to do something.
  4. Yeah the 3900X is a b#tch. I had lots of trouble with mine too. I ended up using CTR to undervolt it and now it's fine. CTR (Clock Tuner Ryzen) is a program made by some internet famous overclocker or something and the program helps stablizing Clock speeds and lowers voltage for each CCX so you get the best results. It's also some work but after some reading you can do it. EDIT: https://www.guru3d.com/files-details/clocktuner-for-ryzen-download.html
  5. You should seriously go to 32gb. I tried 4k editing too on my Machine and only once I updated to 32gb it really worked.
  6. Okay so you are always connecting over quickconnect, which seems weird. Just go into your browser on any PC and enter the IP address of the NAS in the adressbar. Mine for example would be There you can log in with your Admin credentials. I guess you have shares setup as well, those can be connected within windows as well so they act basically as an external hard drive.
  7. Today I had sushi with vegan salmon. I was quite excited to taste it and for someone who hasn't had salmon in almost a decade it did taste a liiiiiittle bit like it. Generally I would say it wasn't worth it and that there's better vegan sushi.

      @HairlessMonkeyBoy they try to mimic it so meat (or fish) lovers have an easier transition towards not killing animals for delicious food.

      They don't really do it for the vegans. I had fun trying but I'll stick to other sushi in the future. I do however like other vegan meat stuff, for example we have great nuggets here.

      it looks like salmon but the crazy thing is, it's not actually salmon. Come on people it's 2021.

  8. Me: ah yes, and now a nice, relaxing evening! 


    NAS: lmao, how about I just f#cking brick myself and you troubleshoot me?

      Seriously, this b#tch hasn't even been on the last couple days and now all of the sudden I can't even ping it anymore.

      @soldier_ph funny thing is, I just disconnected the NAS from everything and shut it down for 2 days and now it's working fine again. No idea what was going on. 


  9. Well I am working in automotive and my assemblies are just like 1m in size but contain hundreds of parts too with each just a couple centimeters or even millimeters. I really don't think size matters (heh). It's more the scale that matters. If your assembly is 40m but you also have parts of 1cm then you have a lot of zooming to do.
  10. I am too stupid to use it lol. I always love it when people use it because it seems to fluid and intuitive, but for me it's just not So yeah, I have it on my desk as a paperweight. It's not even plugged in
  11. May I ask what the point of this is? Maybe we already have to result for you so you don't have to bother with it.
  12. Hey, I have updates about my internet/ISP situation again! Fun times. 

    So last week I had crazy disconnects again, like every 30 minutes. 

    I wrote a ticket with the ISP and they kinda fixed it by dropping my connection from 160mbit to 130mbit (I pay 250...) and sent out a technician to look at it. 


    Dude was here and said (like all the others), the wires inside the house are from 1933 and can't do 250mbit, there are hundreds of errors. They need to replace the wires. 


    Today I had another technician appointment and the dude never showed up but in the online system it says "Problem solved". 


    So I ask the ISP in chat what the hell happened because nobody showed up and I still only get 130mbit. 

    Dude is like "yes, but it doesn't disconnect anymore" 

    So we had some chit chat which actually led to him rage quit lmao.



    To put everything in a nutshell:

    Last year I started with 190mbit, half a dozen technician came to "solve" it, which resulted in 160mbit.

    Now another "solution" puts me down to 130mbit.

    Any guesses when I am back to 56k dial in?

      I have a friend who also had disconnects every 30 minutes, which made it very annoying to play online games together.

      @manikyath yeah I pay these assholes 45€ a month for effectively 130/35. What a bunch of bullshit. 


      Problem is @Benji is right, the contracts are layed out that almost anything is basically okay. On the other hand, dropping down to a 100mbit connection is only like 5€ less so I don't really a see a point in that. 


      @Drama Lama haha no at least they fixed that late last year. Looks pretty good too.

      I mean getting thrown out of online games is shit but I rely on it for work right now and the Boss man doesn't care, he just wants the work done...

      @FloRolf At this point I would recommend to just say F it and DIY it. 

  13. Another PSA:

    Get a Passwordmanager 

    Update all your passwords 

    Enable Two-factor-Authentication (Preferably with multiple physical keys)

      @DrMacintosh yeah same. I am not in IT but my company doesn't have anything like this either. They did crank up password requirements over the years but that's it.

      On the other hand, some people have to put special polarizing filters over their monitors so other people (THAT ALSO WORK THERE) cannot see what they are working on. It's kinda stupid really.

      I actually have a password manager now that I‘m slowly  beginning to use. Still have many Passwords in my brain and not in the password manager. It feels weird typing your login data in a program.

      I’m looking into what would be a good option. I have a small team of about 7+ ppl. I’m not really comfortable with lastpass since of the previous data breaches. 1Password looks appealing but I don’t know much about their record. 

  14. I am soooo glad I switched to LastPass with unique 16+ character passwords for all my accounts in combination with Yubicos physical 2FA keys. While it sometimes makes logging in a little complicated, i definitely sleep better at night
  15. Me: well, BTC hasn't fallen in some time, guess it's going up soon!
