  1. I'm not sure whether it's a new VPN setup for you, but I do believe I have heard, that some VPN companies will limit internet speeds, sometimes drastically, if they detect torrenting activities... If you haven't used a VPN before, or have recently switched, that could explain it, insofar as not having the problem before, but however, if you've been using it for a while, it could be that you're not using a "no logs" VPN, in which case it could be that they have been contacted by government agencies regarding copyright infringement and other illegal activities, or that they have a policy that wi
  2. Sorry it took me awhile, but here's the pictures of my case... The outside definitely needs work, but the inside looks good still
  3. I thought that was a pretty obvious feature myself; I mean, I bought them specifically for the idea of inserting the tip and leaving it plugged in... However, I'm not going to say that some people might not understand that, nor judge anyone that doesn't understand the set it and forget it nature of these cables
  4. Ok, Good... I have had times where I could view the file in the phone, but not the PC, after a similar event would happen. A small piece of advice for the future, though, If it's so important that you're possibly willing to pay for data recovery then you should press "copy" and not "move" or "cut"...
  5. My advice first off, as I've had similar problems with android phones in the past, is to disconnect the device, and reconnect it... If that doesn't work, then if you're rooted, you should be able to run a recovery app, otherwise if you're not rooted, then a data recovery professional is your best bet
  6. I found out that the cable doesn't support all devices, only those without the PowerDelivery 2.0 mandatory specification, and if your device, such as a pixel 4a doesn't work, it's either because you need the SPARK cable, or are using a 5watt version... Haven't heard of anyone else with a pixel 4a trying the 3watt volta 2.0 cable, so I can't verify whether the problem is actually PowerDelivery 2.0, or the whole google locking out 5watt cables due to shoddy workmanship concerns, with a few brands not necessarily with Volta in particular... Of course, that doesn't mean that I think th
  7. They released another one, according to my notification, just a few minutes ago... It's in the middle of the new gaming headset roundup...
  8. I haven't decided yet if I'm going to do it, but it IS already gutted specifically for that purpose... I'm not sure, but I may not even have to go 4x3... I might be able to find a 1080p portable monitor small enough to fit, and basically those have the same setup, just prebuilt, the only bit I'm not sure on, is how I'd manage the letterbox gaps on the top and bottom... Probably a piece of black hard plastic, I reckon would work... That way it's 16X9 which I love, but it still has a clean look to the edges... Also, it's not a white fan, although the size you stated is correct... My fan, is blac
  9. I have an idea for a custom built 'sleeper PC" where I use a "Bubble iMac", without the built-in screen of course, to house a full PC, including a DVD Drive, if I can find a laptop drive that's the same size, and compatible with the iMac cd-drive bezel, or close enough, to be juryrigged at least, with a little glue or something... My question is, if I want to go through with the idea, do I want to go with a CPU or an APU??? Also, how new do I want to go with the processor??? What I know for sure about the proposed build is that it would likely be a M-atx or M-itx board
  10. As long as you have the uefi set to legacy you can "boot anything, from anything" or very nearly so, but if you don't then it has to be uefi based, or would a better term be, compliant??? Most new windows installers should be uefi compatible, but who knows if yours is...
  11. I do like the old style look, but I hope he cleaned up some of the drive cages that are likely inside, cuz dam, back then, they didn't even hear about this thing called airflow...
  12. Also, I plan to reuse the power button as well as the LED, although the rest of the stuff on that particular circuit board will probably not get used
  13. One thing I saved though, after tearing one apart over 15 years ago, though, are the speakers, cuz they are usually da bomb... I had so much Bass coming out of them it wasn't funny... New speakers look like they haven't rotted either... I also saved the microphone, although I'm not sure how good that will work without upgrades, and stuff... I plan on doing something for putting a motherboard tray in it, possibly buying a plastic test bench setup like LTT showed in a video a few years ago, as long as it supports M-itx and/or M-atx...
  14. If you mean the crt, then no, I need all the space I can get for the parts, and since I'm thinking about putting a M-atx or M-itx board in there, with full ryzen processor (not sure if I'll get an APU or just standard CPU with external graphics card), I won't have room for it... And it's already gutted, and the wires to the screen destroyed in the process, anyways...
  15. And that's why I don't use ANY drive that is also an mp3 player for booting... You never know if it'll work... Of course, you did have USB boot enabled in BIOS right??? I don't mean to sound like I know it all, I just have had that happen before...
