  1. Saddest day of 2021 already 😞

    Kyle, Lyle and Heather are getting a divorce 

    Never though that was possible. Kyle looks like absolutely shit here completely devastated.

      I wished them both well on their respective latest videos. People are being shitty, so drop a positive comment for them both.

    3. Cyberspirit


      Can't watch the video right now but I'd say it's always better to just move on from a relationship that doesn't work than to stay in it while hating the other.


      Also, it's good to remember that even if they look happy on camera, that doesn't mean that everything is good in the background.

    4. DrMacintosh


      This news is unfortunate. However, it takes 2 people to make a marriage/relationship work, if it wasn't working then things are probably for the best. 


      edit: What I'm just realizing now is that didn't the two of them do some major renovations to their home? I hate it when a few months out, usually when one partner already knows they are unhappy, said partner goes along with a major event/financial decision and then leaves. 

  2. Of course you can run the cards. Just make sure the new PSU is powerful enough and that your motherboard doesn't have proprietary connectors for the PSU.
  3. Wow I just had a first happen to me. 

    I received dating spam via SMS. 

    Like serious, who uses SMS? Last time I wrote one was probably 2011 lmao.

      It must be incredibly profitable for them because there is so much spam and so many scams out there, and it seems like there's just getting more and more every day.

      Not gonna date someone who goes to the bakery during a pandemic, and can get my phone number without asking it from me

      Two years ago I got one similar to that

  4. i know you don't want to calculate but ... Pcie 4.0 x16 does 32gbyte/s and a standard harddrive maaaaybe 200mbyte/s. Which means you need roughly 160 Harddrives to reach that. Sooooooo good luck testing that out.
  5. Oh god i am stupid...

    I just bought a 5gbit USB NIC for my ITX machine and got an Asus U2008 Switch with it, just to now realize that the Switch is 10gbit only.

    2. FloRolf


      presume nothing...  😄 I bought the Switch used so that doesn't apply. 


      Got a decent price though so i might just sell it on again after testing and i guess i'll keep the USB NIC for the future. That was new.

      when the switch is too fast

  6. I guess because of accessibility, for example from Mobile and because of the transcoding. Also the UI like you mentioned and the fact that it shows movie stats, let's you rate the movie etc.
  7. Yeah no, I am not a fan of the new way status updates are displayed on mobile LTTF.

      I don't use LTT on mobile, how is it different?
      Personally I hate how it drags you to a separate page when you post one. I'll probably just stop using it 🤷‍♂️

    3. FloRolf


      @colonel_mortis it's two things mainly. I like to see the Status update on the profile instead because for one I can click "see other status updates" when people post multiple ones and I can also see their Specs in their profile which might help understanding the status updates.


      This new page seems very limited. It only contains the status update and nothing more. 


      Would be great if there was a page that contains all the status updates of the people I follow in chronological order.

      That was one of the things that people had complained about before - on mobile, all the other profile stuff really got in the way. Most status updates don't relate to the specs on a member's profile anyway though, no?

      You can customize the all status updates page, and save it as your own stream - https://linustechtips.com/discover/58/?&stream_follow=followed&stream_followed_types[members]=1

  8. I guess this is a good place for a 10.000th post so here we go. My GF's mom had her phone reboot because of a software update and after that she couldn't use the phone anymore because she doesn't know her Apple ID and Password, so she contacts her Ex who has all the data (yes, really). So she get's access to her phone back after a couple days. During that time she can't do sh#t because she also doesn't know her emails credentials since she is just Auto-logged-in on her phone and her email also runs off of the server of her ex's company. Me: well this is a great
  9. We recently played a game with my GF's sister and her BF where you get a question (or statement) and everyone has to answer the same thing in order to get points. The question was "Something you don't gift for a birthday" We all answered stupid shit except her sister who said "a watch" We're all staring at her like And she says "What? Why? It would feel like a 'your time is running up' kind of gift." We continue staring at her. Her BF: "I just gave you a watch for Christmas and you gave me one for my Birthday just a
  10. what can i say, i am a sucker for my german watches! From Junghans to Sinn to Glashütte Original, Nomos etc. pp. I love them all Even considering the 903 myself but also interested in the 556 right now (albeit something completely different).
  11. GF: I have backpain

    Me: well then try to sleep without a pillow. 

    GF: but it's so uncomfortable, I can't do it! 

    Me: just try 10 minutes. 

    GF: I CAN'T

    Me: Just f-ing try! 


    GF 5 Minutes later *falls asleep and snores like an old man*

      Depends on the mattress type you have to really allow it. The back pain could be caused from a bad pillow causing spine misalignment. She may need to get a softer pillow. 

    3. HairlessMonkeyBoy


      Yeah, I've done it. And girlfriend's (and wives) can be that way...

    4. soldier_ph


      @FloRolfSuggest the Blackroll recovery pillow to her if she has Back pain on the regular. Am using it myself and have since not had any Neck or Backpain from sleeping, that's also thanks to my Emma Mattress of course.

  12. Asus RMA trying to steal my identity.

      It's just a motherboard so there isn't even a system password :D

      My issues with it is, that the GPU Debug LED doesn't turn off once the system booted up. I have to restart the system within windows again

      every time in order for it to turn off. The LED itself woudn't be much of an issue if i didn't have a window sidepanel and it wasnt so DAMN BRIGHT.


      GPU and NIC are both fine so idek why it turns on.

      Remember when Facebook asked people for their E-mail password because „ they can confirm the confirmation E-mail for you “ ?

      Remember when Facebook

      @Drama Lama Remember when Facebook ran advertisements around the world how Facebook stood for privacy when it's a well-known fact that they live off collecting and selling people's data? Nothing Facebook ever said was remotely interesting because they're just disingenuous.

  13. Cool! But I am wondering, what is the nfc for?
  14. Omg, after yeeeeaaaars my brother finally upgraded from Win7 to Win10 and got a new boot SSD (coming from HDD...) and now he has all kinds of issues with it. 

    It's probably all caused by his Win7 installation that is still installed on the also connected HDD but he doesn't want to get rid of that yet. 

    1. manikyath


      tell your bro this: windows 10 LOVES to hang when there's a malfunctioning HDD installed, given the presumed age.. there's a good chance the HDD is breaking down.

    2. FloRolf


      @manikyath thought the same but apparently CrystalDiskInfo says it's alright. 

    3. manikyath


      crystaldiskinfo essentially only gives warnings with bad sectors.. it's "overall state" is about as useful as userbenchmark's overall ratings.

  15. You must be a big guy then There's also a Sinn Navitimer, maybe that's more your budget. They have the official license from Breitling to do it so it's actually a real Navitimer (though Sinn just calls is the 903). I am 25 and don't even have a retirement account so I guess you can go ahead Nah but seriously, maybe try saving up in bigger chunks and just go for it quickly. It's a real horogolical legend already.
