    If someone wishes to delete all their messages, for any reason, then it might be much more convenient to have an option to delete everything. It's now their reason.

    Meowster reacted to Benji in Pci-E to PCI adapter?   
    I really doubt that you'll find a "converter". PCI is a shared bus, PCIe isn't. PCI is a parallel bus, PCIe is a serial bus. I have never heard of PCI to PCIe or PCIe to PCI adapters existing.

    Meowster got a reaction from Moonzy in is mining bad for my 3060ti   
    He told me he used them in SLI, I can confirm as I went to collect them in person. I doubt he was a miner as he had a full RGB rig with I think it was a i7 7th gen something. He looked like just a gamer, however I don't know if he ever actually cleaned the GPUs and/or his system

    Meowster reacted to IkeaGnome in what's called the service where you can set a minimal amount to be paid or let it set to the customer, to let him able to download the file you loaded   
    PayPal? Since at that point you're asking for a random number to get paid... Just set up a link and have them decide how much to send you?

    Hey thanks! I'm actually moving soon so I'll explore all my options when we get into the new place and have a look at what openers are in there. It's possible they will have the older style again and I can just go back to simple relays without any kajiggering.

    This thread has convinced me. I need to do something extra nice for my grandma.

    Does anyone want to donate a 5950X and a 3090?

    I want for her to be done checking her emails before she realizes she was checking her emails.

    I had a laptop (Dell XPS 15) that deployed with me and has seen some rough times. To try to keep it longer I replaced the keyboard, battery, bought more RAM, but eventually it was time to let it go. So I did what any reasonable person would do and completely disassembled it, kept the HDD unplugged in a 3.5'' drive cage in my desktop and have the lid with all the stickers it has collected on a shelf at my desk.

    I plan to continue using my X5650 and motherboard until it dies, and at that point I might frame it. Very special hardware to me.

    I'm just wondering if I'm the only one emotinally attatched to my tech sometimes. I'm curious if people have the same thing as me,
    I have a Dell Studio 1555 laptop that I had since 2008. It has been through a lot with me (including my past 2 jobs too). I got it as a gift from my dad, at the time that machine was the hot stuff! It had a Core 2 Duo P8600 2.4GHz and an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570 which is notoriously known for failing. In this case, it has failed. I only keep it just becuase it went such a long way with me, I even used it for CNC machinery operation at one point. I'm emotionally attatched to it because of its quirky and odd design choices

    I still have my old laptop, a Compaq Presario, with an Athlon XP-M 2400+. It's basically useless at this point, but it doesn't take up much room and it still works fine (except the battery).

    Not really tech, but I suppose my car (although its got an amp, new speakers, Android etc). It's done about 260k km so getting there. I've rewired most of the electrics and re-routed a lot of them. I don't think I could really sell it, just because another person might just mess it all up. I actually just get angry when it goes in for its WOF, because last time the guy couldn't figure out how to open the boot - needs a little encouragement.

    Meowster reacted to lipowers in Had to write a blog post for class about how a media object influenced me, LTT was the obvious choice   
    Here's what I wrote for it:
     
    About 3 years ago I started following a YouTube channel called Linus Tech Tips, or LTT. The channel covers everything tech related from computer hardware, like monitors, PC parts, keyboards, controllers, and mice, to the state of the economy surrounding large technology companies, like Apple, Intel, and AMD. At the time, I had a pretty basic understanding of computers. I knew it was a bunch of parts somehow put together in a box that lets me play video games and watch movies. I had grown up with my parents old iMac, (the transparent one, yikes) and had an Xbox to play games on, but never really had any interest in computers or technology until I got my own desktop PC and started watching videos about computers. LTT in particular focuses on new flagship hardware being released by tech companies and reviewing their performance. This makes for very shiny YouTube videos about very expensive products. I’ve seen dozens of videos about the new, fancy TVs that I won’t be buying anytime soon and PC parts my tuition could barely pay for. But the more I stared at the eye candy, the more I began to trickle down information holes and learn about how all this stuff worked. The more I learned about how all this stuff worked, the more I wanted some of my own. Fast forward to today, I have spent more money than I care to admit on PC components and accessories, along with other bits of technology. When I wanted a new pair of headphones, I found one of their videos that compared the industry leaders and gave evaluations of each. And, because YouTube loves to keep users on the platform, the more LTT I watch, the more I am recommended other tech channels, which show me more fancy expensive parts, which make me want to spend more money on other tech odds and ends. Fortunately, the result has not just been dumping money into electronics. Through the tech know-how I have learned over the years, I got a job in IT, and often find myself leaning on details from videos to solve problems. And in an increasingly digital age, it’s pretty useful to know how all this stuff works (sometimes).
