  • Biography
    An easy going person who used to lurk for the longest time. If you like pones, furr, anime, animals, tech, planes, trucks, trains, bacon, guns, freedom and many other things we can be friends.

    I got my start in the tech world when I was rather young. My sister had a broken laptop screen and the local shops wanted $800 to repair it (the computer was only worth $500) she begged me to do it, so one YouTube video and Amazon shopping trip later, I had it done for $30 (the price of the screen) and dinner. That was my foot in the door, which ended up just opening itself.

    Even though I work custodial at a school I still do loads of tech things. Anything from running communication cable throughout the building, installing security cameras, large scale projection, lighting, and live sound mixing.

    I'm in a band too! But I just mix sound for them (I won't self advertise tho. So if you're really that curious, DM me).

    I hope to one day be a commercial pilot. I declined a legit government IT job to pursue this, so I better fucking make it.

  1. Having played GTA V on an FX 8320, you should see 60fps when your not in the city while everyone is blowing eachother up. Your RAM, and maybe even your GPU, is probably holding you back. My config when I gamed on my 8320 was an r9 280 3G, 16gbs 1866 G.Skill RAM, Samsung 840 Pro SSD, Windows 10 LTSB 1607, I ran the game at 1080p almost high settings (high textures but medium everything else. no fxaa or msaa or anything like that). So I'd say, with faster and more RAM, and a better GPU, you should see better FPS. Though I must ask, where are you getting 40fps? In the city
  2. Sounds like a dream job! Jk. Maybe wanna fix that one though. I only came here to point that out, sorry I'm not being useful.
  3. Meanwhile I'm stuck with one ISP because all the stuff is run underground and no one else wants to deal with that. Not to mention the current stuff underground is very old and outdated. The most we can get is 25mbs down (in therory). In practice we get between 5 and 10 down. Yehaw monopolies!
  4. You've reminded me of the time my sister was given some old crusty laptops by an elderly (and no longer living on this earth) neighbour. She mailed them to me because she didn't want them, and figured I could salvage something from them. When I went to open them, I found live larva wriggling around inside the machines. There had to be at least a few dozen in each one. I immediately threw them in the trash, tied it up, and put it out in the bin. I later learned the original owner was a bad hoarder (the kind where you literally cannot see the floor). I guess I blocked that out of my
  5. I guess so, yeah. But I figured maybe Jake had a specific use case, like software or something, and he could report his results in the review. Idk, it was a shot in the dark. I'll be honest, I haven't watched a lot of vids recently. They haven't been catching my eye. So I didn't know what kind he was using.
  6. When I ordered my parts, it was a mix of Amazon and Newegg. Both companies used a mix of USPS and UPS. All items shipped required a signature on delivery. But I was at work during the day. They would just leave the packages on my porch, and when I'd check the shipping status online it would say "delivered, signed by resident" or something to that effect. I was rather livid about it as I live in a somewhat sketchy neighbourhood. Needless to say though, everything turned out to be fine and I'm still using the PC to this day (using right now actually). I have to say, I've not been so
  7. It's possible he's daily driving it for some test as maybe part of a long term use review. I know they've done that before.
  8. Back when I did computer repairs and what-not as a side gig: Malware on a Macbook Pro. Owner was livid, claiming up and down how Macs can't get viruses. I removed said malware and all was well. Needless to say, he no longer uses Macs lol.

  10. I'm a sucker for the Logitech G930s. Sadly they are long since discontinued. I just recently replaced my loving pair with the Logitech G935s. I hate the button layout on the new ones as I preferred it on the side of can rather than the rear. Having it on the side, like on the G930s, makes it easier to distinguish the buttons, let alone press them. The volume rocker on the G935s is way too finicky. If you want to adjust the volume with it, you'll be playing with it until it finally stops where you want. It has a tendency to scroll back and fourth after you let go of it. RGB on a wireless anythi
  11. How old is this machine? Is it filled with dust? My first guess would be overheating. Repaste the CPU (and GPU if it has one).
  12. The real reason for such a high quality camera is that you can zoom in on your subject for more of a headshot effect and them zoom back out. This gives the impression that a talking head is multi camed. It adds to an otherwise boring video of a person talking. Gives depth to the whole thing. With an 8k camera they can easily zoom in on the person talking, or anything really, and you won't notice a loss in quality, especially if watching in 1080p or even 1440p. That is to say, they digitally zoom in during post production, not using the lens to zoom.
