  1. If mobile games actually had anything that interested me I might agree with you, but as of right now everything Ive tried has fallen very stort for me. When I play a game, Im interested in having an enjoyable and immersive experience. Phone screens are too small for me to be immersed or enjoy fumbling with the tiny UI. The switch, if you look at it, is just a closed mobile game ecosystem, and I enjoy that well enough, but it has substance. The games on that platform are an experience, not just entertainment. I disagree with this. Anything beyond instant messaging or banking can
  2. Get a USB one, like in the image you sent. If you dont understand that not every device comes with wifi, installing a PCIe card might be difficult for you. You dont need a pcie one, USB will work just fine. This is a good option, just plug it into the back of your computer and you should be fine: https://www.amazon.com/Wireless-desktop-10-9-10-14-Archer-T2U/dp/B07P5PRK7J
  3. Phone notifications are mentally unhygienic and having them on is pointless, annoying, and a neusence to those around you. You don't need to be updated on everything constantly, if there is an emergency they will call you. Just put time aside to check your apps manually.
  4. Was able to do this on my FX-6300 for a single core bound game years ago. You have a different chip so your success may vary. Give it a try, good luck. Was able to go from 4ghz to 4.5ghz by disabling some cores and lowering my heat output, but you might have better performance if you just upgrade your cooler. Judging by the fact that youre still running phenom CPU, im assuming that most upgrades are not an option for you tho.

    What dac/amp

    I hate to be that person to just link this, but its really helpful:
  6. I actually do this if the pizza is too hot to hold. Youre still godless though.
  7. Agreed. A lot of the culture in the tech community really bothers me because people froth at the mouth over new upgrades when what they have is already overkill for what they do, but they have cognitive dissonance about how that effects e-waste. An increasing number of influencers have been bringing up ewaste lately, which is definitely a good move, but in the long run I dont think influencers or voting with our wallets is going to do anything, because at the end of the day only a small number of people are going to make purchasing decisions based on that. I think what we really need in our so
  8. Alternate title: Nvidia pats themselves on the back while dumping thousands of pounds of ewaste into landfills and implementing arbitrary software locks on hardware products for reasons solely based on profit. In other words: nvidia does what publically traded companies do.
  9. Cheap 16gb sandisk flash drive that i bought to install windows on something died as soon as i got home and started burning the image. Literally lasted 10 minutes after taking it out of the packaging. I thought it was just defective, so I brought it back to the walmart i got it from and they gave me another one. Same thing, lasted 5 minutes instead. Didnt bother returning it the second time because it was $7. You get what you pay for.
  10. This wont work, work on breaking these companies up instead. Except its a US company so swedan cant do anything.
  11. I meet  same problem as you   I saw that you solved the problem, can you share the specific process, thanks 

     Graphics card pass-through  iommu group problem 
    I compiled the recommended kernel. 
    I  wanna  build a home server, using the ubuntu 20.04 server as the host machine, virtualize a win10 to run games, and virtualize another to run freenas. The host include integrated graphics and ext graphics(nv 2060
    ). followed a graphics card pass-through virtualization tutorial. During the advancement, I found that my ext graphics card and other hardware on the motherboard are always in an iommu group. An error is reported when adding graphics hardware to the virtual machine. I don't know how to separate the ext graphics card from the iommu group. 

    I think the solution is  

     Is that a patch needs to be applied. Is this kernel patch? Enable-overrides ACS 

    The following is the iommu grouping situation

      Okay I see. The patch I applied to my kernal was specifically written for Arch based distributions. I am inexperienced with debian and ubuntu distributions beyond just running them on my web browsing laptop.

      A quick google search brings me to this video, which has someone who is much better informed on the subject than I am. I watched the whole video and its a very similar process to what I did on Arch, so I can infer that his knowledge on the subject is sound:

      Good luck, if this doesnt work than Im not entirely sure what to recommend, but let me know and Ill do my best to help.

      Also if it doesnt work, there are some instructions in his video description about some things to write into Grub. Some people were having trouble and found a solution. They commented the solution and he put it in the description.

      did you figure it out?

  12. This is why I dont go outside anymore, so the vegans dont find me and break my kneecaps. In all seriousness, these kinds of people can be found in almost every single community or group. People dont think the same way as they do so they get salty about it and try to force it onto other people. In the context of a tech community, its fanboys. It exists in politics, religion, and now even vaccination (for some ungodly reason). Its not that vegans specifically have something wrong with them, its that people will always find reasons to oppose the "others." Vegan friend of
