    Built my first PC when I was 14. Motherboard was DOA and company refused replacement. Took me another 5 years to save up enough to build my own computer. Still couldn't afford the build I wanted. Basically I've lived my life moving from recycled PC to recycled PC. Started live-streaming on Twitch in 2013 and still have a knack for driving people away -- hey, even on this forum! People are so condescending, myself included ^.^

  1. Strange, if I create a test zpool using file devices, this works; Oracle's documentation of zfs shows you can attach a disk to a zpool to create a mirrored ZFS storage pool from a previously nonredundant pool (https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E19253-01/819-5461/gcfhe/index.html). You can't do it with raidz, but you can with mirror. I believe that's what `zpool attach` does according to the documentation. One of my hard drives is inaccessible at the moment, so I was thinking of modifying this to create a 2TB ZFS and then later add the 1TB drives to expand capacity instead. That also wo
  2. I'm about to set up a ZFS storage server (zfsonlinux) and just want some feedback/sanity checking on the commands I'm about to run to make sure I don't dump everything in the garbage. My configuration is as follows: 2x 2TB hard drives (Empty /dev/sda, and /dev/sdb which currently has my data on an EXT4 partition at 68% capacity) 2x 1TB hard drives (Empty /dev/sdc and /dev/sdd which currently has my data on an EXT4 partition at 97% capacity) What I plan to do is create a mirrored ZFS pool with the 2TB drives mirroring each other and the 1TB drives mirroring each ot
  3. When I was putting my current build together, I cut my thumb and spilled a lot of **R** on the case. It was upsetting, because that was the case I spent my hard-earned **G** on. When I went to start the computer for the first time, I held my breath waiting for that first POST and ended up turning **B** because I forgot the power to the GPU. That's my story of R, G, and B.
  4. Yeah, pretty much the whole point is "if it ain't broke, don't fix it". I never really said that a 3070 wasn't a good choice for anyone, but was more trying to point out that not everyone would be able to even use it to its potential. I know a guy who bought a 2070 last summer and is used it to play chess, process word documents, and host teleconferences. I ask him, and he doesn't even know why he bought it, it was just what the guy at the store suggested. People are free to spend their money however they want, and I will probably never understand some of it (like people who sp
  5. Yeah, I've watched it. The takeaway I got is that it's futile to upgrade in a lot of situations. How does a 750ti manage to drive 3x 1080p monitors at more than 30fps while streaming? I haven't bothered to dive too deep into why it works so well, but it does the job. Maybe it's because I have no idea what "Horizon Zero Dawn" is because I usually play simulator, RTS, and turn-based games. I get that it's a hobby. I have hobbies also. But I don't run out and spend thousands of dollars on my hobby when I can be just as happy with what I already have.
  6. I livestream and have a triple monitor setup. I play enough video games that I need a decent gpu, but there's really no need to go crazy and buy a 3070 (or even a 2060; a 1070 would be a step up, but if a 750ti works, then it works). I guess I'm tired of hearing people complain about wanting a 3070 to upgrade from their 1070; I don't see why people should be ripping their hair out over this stuff.
  7. I'm currently using a GTX 750ti, and have been thinking of upgrading my GPU. Then RTX 3000 came out, and I thought I might get one... but I kept hearing about availability issues and whatnot. Well, currently I can get an EVGA RTX 3070 at MSRP in my little Canadian town because our local computer shop doesn't show stock levels in online searches and nobody locally knows what an RTX 3070 card even is. So if I wanted that 3070, I can get it. But then I think, "almost CAD$800 for a graphics card? To pair with a R3 1300x?" They have CPUs too, I could upgrade to a 3700x
  8. What I'm doing: I'm trying to stream data via ffmpeg to ffplay via the rtmp protocol (later, ffplay will be replaced with a service that only accepts rtmp data, but for now I'm trying to root out why there's high latency). What I'm getting: if I run ffmpeg -re -i input.flv -c:a copy -c:v copy -rtmp_live live -f tee -map 0 "[f=flv:rtmp_live=live]rtmp://localhost/ffplay/live" and, on localhost, I also run ffplay -i rtmp://localhost/live -f flv -listen 1 -fflags -nobuffer -analyzeduration 1 I get a latency of between 1 to 3 seconds (which I determine to be reasonable). If, ho
  9. Depending on the streaming service you're using, there may also be an option for the streamer to enable 'low-latency' mode to reduce latency, and there may be an option for the viewer also to enable 'low-latency mode' also
  10. Streaming between 2 computers on my network, I can get low latency with ffmpeg; from the source machine, I run with server source `srt://<SERVER_IP>:10000?latency=1500000,mode=caller`, and the client (receiver) runs with receiver `srt://<CLIENT_IP>:10000?mode=listener`. Using this, you can tune the 'latency' option, but for some reason I've found that I can't actually get it to run reliably for any period of time before I get errors like `SRT:RcvQ:w1!W:SRT.qr: @76333983:No room to store incoming packet: offset=0 avail=0 ack.seq=263997771 pkt.seq=263997771 rcv-remain=8191 drift=0`
  11. The video he posted after the channel was back up the first time detailed how the attack happened; it was apparently a malicious email pretending to be a potential sponsor that took over one of the youtube account managers (somebody who's not Chase who has administrative access via their youtube account in the 'account/brand managers' section on youtube) who then wreaked havoc on his channel. I wouldn't say Chase F--d up, he's just got to be a bit more selective with who he gives administrative access to the channel
  12. This seems like a very weird problem and I can't quite make sense of it. Here's what happens: 1) I boot into windows and open Firefox. I log into my gmail and all is well. 2) about an hour later I try to refresh gmail and it gives a 'network certificate' error or 'PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR'. Regardless of which web browser I use, I can not load gmail on Windows at this point (and a few other google suite products stop working also) 3) I boot my laptop into Linux (NOT the same machine as Windows) and log into gmail; it logs in with no problem. 4) Windows can now log int
  13. That's ultimately the best solution, although it's one I was hoping to avoid... Currently where I am is considered a 'hotspot' and everything's shut down. For the time being I've solved the issue with duct tape. Although looking through videos, it seems as though headphones are about the same as they were 50 years ago so repair isn't as big of an issue unless the body is made with a cheap plastic.
  14. That's probably true... but I literally go crazy if stuff goes in my ears and I'd probably freak out on a regular basis. Thanks for the other suggestions. Do any of these companies publish the frequency response curves so I can get an idea of what to expect?
  15. Today my good headphones broke. I've been using them for almost 15 years now (although they used to be my father's back in the 70s). They were great for me because they were easy to take apart and clean, they came with the 1/4" jack standard (rather than needing an adapter, so I can plug them directly into my guitar amp), super durable, and they blocked out the noise really well. I 100% cannot do on ear or in ear headphones. I'd like some headphones that I can use for doing sound work stuff (guitar, music editing, etc) and that I know will last me a very long time. Perhaps 50
