    I recommend bitwarden if you want a cloud hosted solution, or KeePass if you are okay with keeping track of the database yourself (or just put it on Dropbox).

    What a bad attitude to have. The whole point of a direct ballot means that it bypasses nearly all of the lobbying from big tech that would occur. The PEOPLE vote, like how it should be.

    He's an Apple repair tech.  He runs a shop that exclusively repairs Apple devices - and only a subset of them at that.  He talks about Apple products and practices because it's what he deals with all day every day.  He has a history of giving Apple credit when they do good and he regularly points out that most other major tech companies are similarly terrible.  Dell, HP, Lenovo, Samsung, LG, etc also have terrible track records when it comes to repair, but Louis can't share as much information about them because he doesn't repair those devices.  If Apple were the only problem, Right to Repair would not be necessary; anyone who cared about repair would just buy non-Apple products.  But that's not the case and that's why his effort to advance the Right to Repair movement is important.
     
    Regardless what anyone may think of Louis, I really like his approach to Right to Repair.  He cares about more than Apple and more than just consumer electronics. He doesn't want to force manufacturers to re-design products for repairability or make their designs open source. He doesn't even want to force manufacturers to offer repair services or to supply parts. He just wants to stop manufacturers from going out of their way to screw over independent repair.
     
    For instance, a manufacturer shouldn't be obligated to sell a part exclusively to another manufacturer in order to do business with them. Third parties should be allowed to ship used goods and parts through customs without having the seized as "counterfeits". Third parties shouldn't have to "partner" with manufacturers just to be able to buy parts. Third parties should be permitted to share technical details about a product (eg independently-developed board views or circuit diagrams).
     
    That's what I want to see. I'd much rather see independent repair start with better legal protection than have a bunch of half-baked, hard-to-enforce regulations piled onto manufacturers who will inevitably find loopholes anyways.  Regulations like that may be worth pursuing eventually, but I think starting with them sets the movement up for failure.

    I have something that looks like this, and just stuff it inside the laptop pouch.
    This isn't the exact model, but something like it...kind of like a mini docking station
    Has an USB-C power input, so I plug the included Lenovo charger into it, and it charges the laptop + acts as a powered hub. HDMI port Couple of USB 3.0 ports (I just use it for USB thumb drives, charging my phone, my mouse..) Ethernet port
     
     
    For your use case, make sure you look for one that has a USB-C output or an HDMI output that can handle the amount of bandwidth for your 3440 x 1440 monitor.

    tridy reacted to -rascal- in Intel UHD Graphics Missing 3440 x 1440 resolution   
    The Lenovo T14 is ALSO HDMI 1.4b.
    The problem is not the resolution, but the bandwidth required to drive that resolution.
     
    If you dig through the spec a bit more, it's up to 4K, but either 24Hz or 30 Hz.
    Again, because 4K 60 Hz is too much bandwidth for HDMI 1.4b.
     
    Jut for comparison, 2560 x 1440 = ~3.6 million pixels, while 3440 x 1440 = ~4.9 million pixels.
    3440 x 1400 @ 60Hz requires ~8.92 Gbps of bandwidth; HDMI 1.4b is limited to ~8.16 Gbps.

    Which model Lenovo ThinkPad do you have?
     
    If I recall, with my ThinkPad T480, if I wanted higher resolutions, I needed to use the USB-C port via adapter.
    The HDMI port is 1.4 or something, rather than 2.0 or 2.1, so it doesn't support 4K output, etc.
    EDIT: My T480 is HDMI 1.4b. The USB-C port is HDMI 2.0 compliant.

    Use whatever lamps and room lighting you have, avoid shadows.

    No, you don't need any elgato lighting anything. 
     
    In your case, some face lighting and some light on the green screen will work. 
     
    Almost any lights will work.  I've got an led soft bulb in an old desk lamp arm.  Works great.  Even a cheap amazon light ring helps.

    tridy got a reaction from The_Vaccine in The Price of The Right to Repair - Louis Rossmann   
    In his video Louis  explains how it worked in the automobile industry to pass the right to repair, how many parties were involved in that and how much money needed to get the voting done through bypassing the politicians, bureaucracy and lobbying and people laughing at your face.
     
    He said it is going to cost around 5 million to make this happen. It is a lot of money for one person but not so much if we help him.
     
    It could be once in a lifetime opportunity to make a huge change for us, the consumers of this industry.
     
     
    What are your thoughts on how we can help him. He is putting a lot of his personal energy and passion into that.
     
    I though that if we have several tech YouTubers and Louis on the stream talking about the problem and raising the funds.
     
    I would definitely like to tell the story to my grandchildren one day that I was a part of it. I want my right to repair!

    tridy reacted to GoodBytes in How to get sensor info on Win10 without admin rights?   
    I want to say in Kelvin, but that would mean 2708 degree C 🙂
    I guess it is getting garbage from the BIOS/UEFI of your system. Don't worry, it's not working on my system on my side. One is returning 0, and the other one is returning "Not Found"
     
    That's the problem with WMI, you are at the mercy of the BIOS/UEFI, and as Windows never actually ended up using many of the stats it collects, the BUIS/UEFI it is probably sending broken garbage because it wasn't tested as the end user isn't affected, so no complains, or it was just not implemented.
     
    Now we know why Windows Task Manager doesn't report CPU temps. 🙂
    Although, if they do, maybe it will start making vendors rush and implement support to stop getting calls that their CPUs is running at 2708 degree C. 😄

    tridy reacted to WereCatf in How to get sensor info on Win10 without admin rights?   
    No, accessing the sensors requires access to the SMbus on the mobo and it'd be a massive security-vulnerability to just give access to that for normal users.

    LNA only lowers the fan speed. They're included in case the user doesn't have a method of lowering the fan speed.

    So, if there is not so much difference in price, why not buy a "normal" notebook and install Chrome OS on it instead? Would it be legal?

    Also test it in another slot 
    Also test it at a bit lower frequency - 3200 Mhz instead of 3600 Mhz for example
     
    If that problem keeps showing up, I'd return it.

    tridy reacted to Semper in [Memtest86] Max Contiguous Errors: 1   
    Anomalous errors can happen from time to time. I'd run the test several more times, if it continues to reproduce even somewhat reliably, back to Corsair it goes.

    I subscribe to the "one error is too many" theory, but I also test multiple times. Others will tell you that one will be okay.

    This really sucks ...
    So, backers can (one of the three options below) :
    *get a 25€ refund, on a kickerstater project that cost 580 to 650€ ...
    *or be in the 20 lucky "winners" and get a free case; for the other backers pay again to get a case (600 to 700$).
    *or say no to this partnership and push-back furthermore the project and release of a final product ...
