  1. Up until a few days ago I always had pretty stable internet. It isn't fast as I live in a rural area, but it's good enough, about 4.5MB/s. Recently however it's gone to shit, for lack of a better term. Now I only seem to get around 1.5MB/s max, and it fluctuates a lot, it will go from 300KB/s to 1.5MB/s and back again in less than a minute. Last night I tried using the 5GHz connection, and that solved the problem, however this morning that has now stopped working and I am getting the same problem on the 5GHz one. Is this likely to be an ISP problem (I'm in the UK and
  2. Like would it really hurt, or just be a bit uncomfortable? I rub my eyes a lot, they often feel just like they have something in them, and it kindof "hurts" in the loosest sense of the word possible (i.e. it's really not "painful" more than just having something in your eye is), however it normally goes away after a few minutes if I don't rub my eye. I assume if you got battery stuff in your eye it wouldn't go away like that.
  3. I get what you mean but I would argue they aren't strictly "losing money", as I doubt any Twitch Streamer or YouTube would bother getting a music licence, they would just use licence free music. If they are using it on purpose as background music then I can sympathise with the Music Label a tiny bit (still not much as they are a massive company versus an individual), but if it's just a case of the music being in a game, or being playing in a public place then they really shouldn't be claiming the videos.
  4. It's only just started happening though, I don't normally hear the noise. Does it only happen once the PSU isn't really "new"
  5. Yeah I think copyright law wasn't really written for the internet age, it's a shame there are such powerful companies backing it which makes it difficult to change.
  6. I don't think they would be allowed to as ti would be classed as "recording" the radio, rather than just playing it. It's a bit dumb that they can't imo, as no one is gonna use a Twitch VOD to pirate music.
  7. Am I the only one who thinks music companies copyright claiming stuff like this and youtube videos is just scummy business practise? As if someone genuinely wants to "pirate" music by downloading it off youtube, surely they would just download the song (which are all available on youtube anyway), instead of downloading and clipping it out of a video with game audio or someone talking in it? I don't think the people who make the music are losing anything by youtubers or streamers having it in the background if it's in a game or something. If their problem is that people don't pay license fees f
  8. Yeah I probably should it's just always much more convenient to turn it off at the wall. I think I'll look into getting a surge protector with individual switches or having one power strip for the lights and unimportant stuff then one for the PC and Monitors. Is it okay to run 2 monitors, a Switch and a 500W ish PC off of one wall output? Or would it be best to split that over multiple?
  9. I'll have to look into a surge protector like that thanks, I didn't know you could get ones with individual switches. Do you think the weird PSU noise is to do with the fact I always turn it off?
  10. I have a few controllers that had got left with batteries inside them, they were left in a bag full of other random stuff because I'm unorganised lol. I took them out today and they have battery corrosion, not a huge amount, but I'm a bit concerned it got on the other stuff in the bag too, and I know this stuff can be bad for your eyes and skin etc. I know of the vinegar thing as that neutralises it etc, and I will do that for the actual contacts in the controllers, but for the outside of the controllers and the other stuff that was in the bag, does just wiping it down with a damp
  11. I dunno I just always have as I'm a bit paranoid about fires and surges and stuff, plus I have other things plugged into the expension lead that need to be off (specifically lights), is it bad to turn it off?
  12. Does arcing also cause a spark? Are the safties likely to fail if it's a decent power supply though? Or would that just be on a knock off one?
  13. When I turned my PC off today, I turned it off at the wall after shutting it down (as I always do), the PSU (I assume it was that, maybe it was something else in the PC) made a kindof cracking sound (basically a click but "deeper" if that makes any sense lol). It's never done this before. (I turned it back on and shut it down again and it did it again, so it's definitely the computer not just something else in the room that happened to make a noise as I shut it down). Is this the power supply? If it is does this means it's about to break or something? It's a really good EVGA one,
  14. I have an RTX 2070, and it has only 1 hdmi port. I was previously using the HDMI port for my second monitor (this: https://www.game-debate.com/monitor/index.php?mon_id=4308&monitor=Acer%20X193HQL) Recently however I got a Rift CV1, so I have to use the hdmi port for that. For this reason, I purchased a DisplayPort to HDMI converter cable thing off eBay (this: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/4K-Display-Port-DP-To-HDMI-Female-Cable-Adapter-Converter-DisplayPort-for-HDTV/143552684748?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649). However, I can't get thi
  15. Have you made sure your monitor is plugged into your GPU and not your motherboard?
