  1. 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 🤷‍♂️

      @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

  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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).
  5. 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.

      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.

  7. Cool! But I am wondering, what is the nfc for?
  8. 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.

  9. 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.
  10. Yeah! Trying to keep it alive here we need some more member GS is absolutely sick. Owning a Spring Drive is definitely a must have for me in the future. That sweeping seconds is just amazing. And apparently their finishing is top f-ing notch.
  11. Ah! Glad you are still alive and well. Last status update didn't sound very good. What are your grails my friends? Mine is the Glashütte Original Panoreserve. I know it's got some Lange vibes but they basically have the same origin so that's fine by me. The PanoramaDate is executed nicer on the Glashütte though, so take that Lange! Also very nice would be the Grand Seiko SBGH 267. It's limited edition and therefore quite rare (and $$$) but i love it. Dial is pretty much perfect.
  12. I know money can't bring back our loved ones but at least it can take some of that stress away that'll sit in the back of the head of the bereaved. 

    So if you can, give something for our fallen LMG friend. 




    And there was also a Memorial Stream, if you wanna rewatch. First about 15mins are quite emotional though





    RIP Tyler :(

      I'm not crying.. I rubbed Onions in my eyes.. I swear...

  13. Daaaaamn, just finished Clone Wars and it's reeeeaaaally incredible. 


    Can't recommend it enough.

      If you liked Clone Wars, you should watch Rebels. I personally enjoyed Rebels even more than Clone Wars. The first season is okay, but all the seasons after that are amazing. It gets into a lot of expanded lore that's going to be important to understand for the new Star Wars shows Disney is making.

      I still have to finish season 7

      but yea good Star Wars series 

    4. FloRolf


      @HairlessMonkeyBoy actually season 5 is quite important, watch it! :D


      @WaggishOhio383 yes I plan to do that next. 😍


      @Drama Lamait's pretty good, watch it! 😛


  14. Ebay just sent me an email with the subject "Great news: NICs, postage stamps from france and it's colonies and much more...!" 


    Can't remember the last time I searched for postage stamps but it was probably never. Apparently they go nicely with NICs though and I have quite a few of those... 

    1. FloRolf


      Seriously though, I have five 10G NICs just lying around here collecting dust 😭😭
