  1. Yeah... I would be fighting against my self doing that. This just lets me do what I want and I can find it easily.
  2. Epoxy is your best friend. There Apple! You should have done something like this sooner!!!!!!!
  3. This is a customer's system. The way the fans are were how they came from iBuyPower... Don't worry I will be fixing all the sins. Radiator is clean.
  4. I wanted to make sure people are aware of the iBuyPower 120mm AIOs are absolute junk. I work in a computer repair shop. I have had 7 systems with these AIOs come in with intermittent shutdowns. Either that or the system has power performance. The processors in these systems are the 8th gen and 9th gen chips. Even the working AIOs temps reach easily over 100C during prime95. During video encode systems are running high 90s. The hoses on these things get super hot to the touch and the radiator isn't even properly working. Honestly, the AIOs on these things are just HORRIBLE. Most of

  6. So I figured I would post this here: https://chris.partridge.tech/2021/rockyou2021.txt-a-short-summary/
  7. Currently enterprise uses a lot of tape. I think the largest LTO tape does like 30TB uncompressed. Having a disc that can do 700TB is not only cost effective, but also space saving. If these discs are also super durable and reliable then having long term storage with such large capacities would be a win. I have heard of several data centers reaching into the exobytes and having backups is a bitch to maintain at those capacities.
  8. O_O Good lord. I thought I was bad XD I hope things settled down and you haven't been to the hospital in some time. Yikes. That sounds scary.
  9. Yeah. ADHD makes you pretty accident prone. I had severe ADHD growing up and was on the combined spectrum (Hyperactive, Inattentive and Impulsive make for a bad combo). Didn't think sometimes when I did stuff. But most were accidents. The last concussion was the worst. 9 months of PCS.
  10. If you are in a pinch and do not have bar lube, you can use motor oil. I have done it a few times. Though bar lube is very thick and sticky. You want to use the right stuff when you can. I have used engine oil myself in a pinch. Though you kinda had to when there is no power for 10 days and most of central ohio is covered in ice XD
  11. Kinda sound like me but from what I can remember: (ages) That is all that I can remember. I have several other ones. My dad told me I have been in and out of the hospital over my life at least 30 times.
  12. I think if you could parse out the data from this it would be interesting.
  13. Over the course of my life I have been at least 25 times. Broken bones, cuts, concussions, dislocations and more.
