    daveholland86 got a reaction from sxnchit in Laptop screen flickers a lot   
    Going to agree to look into this.  The ribbon cable may have come loose.  Had a friend knock his MacBook off a table and the screen went dead.  Oh, he was upset but when we looked at it, only the ribbon cable popped out and once it was plugged back in, there was nothing wrong with it.

    I dont own anything that can be used to make a gun.  I have a CNC machine for mechanical parts.

    Reality though, they would have to outlaw a hammer and pliers then.  You can make a gun out of a coconut, saw it on Gilligan's Island once.

    YouTube is wrapped up with Google.  They probably found something about you they dont like in a massive sweep they do periodically.  Typically, its when they want to silence someone who has opposing views to the company.

    Ya'll buying guns?  No I dont do something like that against the wishes of our government.  I just get billet aluminum and got a couple CNC machines for a small business.  We are in the business, of, uh, making small aluminum parts and figures.  Business has been bad, we are always negative income.

    So I got the copper pipe in today.  Well the ad said soft copper, it was not soft.  My bends are garbage.  Waiting on the water pump and then I have everything to do initial testing.

    daveholland86 got a reaction from Kxtzyy in i5 9300h or i7 9750h   
    The i5 works perfectly fine.  I am running it, and I was apprehensive at first as I wanted an i7 because it what was in my former laptop.  Well the i5 9300h beats my old i7 4th gen.  It will be fine for most applications and there is plenty of CPU left over when running a game, except for CPU intensive games, but the i7 would also have that issue.  

    A Ryzen would really be best, but no current Ryzen laptops are worth two pennies, they either remove dual channel ram or thermal throttle.  Those reasons alone I am reluctantly avoiding mobile Ryzen.

    daveholland86 got a reaction from zeusthemoose in lets comment the timestamp of the end of each ltt youtube video's ad for easy ad skipping   
    No, lets not talk about it.  Sponsors keep LMG running and making content.  If we start doing that the sponsors #1 can see this forum, and #2 are not stupid and will notice the time stamps on every video.  Paying LMG money to advertise to an audience who is blatantly skipping content is wasted money.  Moral of the story is dont talk about it if you like LMG.

    I have been using PIA for about 6-8 years(?) now and it has worked perfectly for my unspecified reasons.  In my house it is referred to as “the internet condom.”

    I think you guys are overcomplicating it.  The traffic is encrypted from an anonymous server to your computer.  What it does is stop any tracking outside your actual location.  PIA has been a good product for me.  Someone can see data was accessed, they can even see what data it was, but they don't know who it was at the trace dead ends back to a PIA server.  For daily routine and privacy it works well.  Nothing is going to stop them if you are a surveillance target.  If you need that level of encryption and tunneling, you already wouldn't be buying PIA.  You guys are really trying to gut a company that sponsors LMG videos over a picture they posted and you feel it's too simplified.  The epitome of the internet age, no one can be satisfied.

    I used to get hit by the cap and now I am with an ISP that doesn't limit or throttle me.  So safe to say I am pulling somewhere in the neighborhood of 6-10 TB per month.  I probably appear as a bandwidth black hole in my neighborhood.

    daveholland86 got a reaction from AeonicX7 in Gaming Laptop around $1200-$1500 USD   
    I bagged every spec but one in the Asus GL531GU, it has an i5-9300h in it.  For those games I am able to run full ultra, badass and epic at 60 fps.  Now I have my system undervolted to hit 4.0 ghz all core all the time and 1660ti is undervolted to hit 1700 core all the time.  Total package is $999.00.

    If you must have the higher processor, the MSI GS66 is a really nice package and you can get that around $1500 with a 2060.
    MSI reliability?  I have a GE60 from 2012 that runs 24/7 as a plex server the past 5 years and it's just fine.  They make a solid product.
