  1. I've been using dex for the past 2 months and honestly, it does about 95% of what I need it to. I'm not a big gamer, but geforce now works pretty amazing on it too. One of my biggest frustrations though is lack of dual monitor support. This makes multi tasking very...trying.
  2. Rpi0 really struggles with os' that use gui. I would install raspberry pi lite os and write the code in python. That os is command line based so it should run plenty fast.
  3. Python would be one of the easier languages. You could use a pi zero to do this (as well as use it to emulate) This way, you are only potentially sacrificing a $10 sbc versus a rpi 4 that costs 5 times as much. I think there are a few ways to do this, but I'm still a novice when it comes to python and coding in general... You could create a gui web server using a python interface called tkinter which can be accessed on your wifi network. However, for simplicity, I'd ssh into your pi to execute the .py code. As far as the coding and hardware, I'd think you would need to
  4. Not really, it is the direct air being blown on my face that bothers me. I think its a sinus thing, which sucks.
  5. Yeah, some people are fine with it. I get a migraine if I have a fan blowing air on my face for any length of time.
  6. IMO, your biggest bottlenecks are gpu and ram speed. Have you tried overclocking your ram?
  7. I think so, but I believe you'd get better results keeping the ac on and the door at least partially opened. I'd also have the ceiling fan blowing air downwards while ac is on. That way, cool air is forced down and hot air is forced out the door with a fan.
  8. Hopefully you have hot air vents in the ceiling for the heat to escape somewhere.
  9. That would help if he can tolerate it...I do know it gives some people headaches over extended periods of time. I think he needs a way to remove the heat, not just blow hot air on himself
  10. If possible, have 1 small fan over your ac vent and another blowing hot air out of the room (through the crack of the partially opened door) This should create airflow and cool down temps. Overhead fans work great too.
  11. Even if you only partially open the door, it should help heat escape. Put a fan in the door too.
  12. You could also put a fan over the ac vent to intensify air flow (assuming your vents are on floor) it seems to help me a bit.
  13. Don't know if you saw my edit, but keep the door open and have a fan blow hot air out of the room.
  14. Do you have a window you can open? I have a similar issue and usually just keep the door open and have a fan blow the warm air out of the room.
