    Great News: Going for my first shot on Friday.

    Benji got a reaction from dizmo in My grandpa needs a web browsing pc and I'm not sure what is enough.   
    Okay 🙂
     
    Well, anyway...
    For regular web browsing, anything halfway modern does the job. Nobody needs an i5/i7 with a dGPU for web browsing. A laptop with an APU like the AMD Ryzen 5 4500U or an Intel Core i5-1135G7 does the job more than satisfactory. Just make sure to watch that it has at least 8GB of RAM. Otherwise he won't need anything, especially no dGPU.
    It doesn't have hardware support for VP9 so it wouldn't make the cut for me.

    Yup, I could've made it more clear that they were two different points.
     
    Let me put it this way: These CPUs don't exist for no reason, my father has a 3800X and I'm certain that this one was also an unpopular chip because the 3900 wasn't that much more expensive and had more cores. To each their own. Some people also think that everything low-end is crap and it isn't, there's a market for it and there's also a genuine use for it.

    Apart from the over-zealous UAC and some other minor flaws there really wasn't a huge amount wrong with Vista if you had hardware that could support it.
    The issues came when it was put on low-end or outdated hardware for which the new visual effects were simply too much, making the experience horribly slow and unstable.

    Because for most people thinking about a 5800x, the 5900x can make just as much sense. People think it runs really hot and isn't worth the trouble. 
     
    I could also state it this way.
    You don't need a D15 or custom loop or AIO for the 5800x

    Ahh, that's totally my bad.
    I misread "Who says that it isn't? *unpopular opinion* Just because it's old doesn't mean it's better or worse than modern things." as "Who says that it isn't? Just because it's old doesn't mean it's better or worse than modern things."

    I was leaving another unpopular opinion, hence why there's more than one empty line in between them, so you got it all wrong.

    Benji got a reaction from wat3rmelon_man2 in How do left handed gamers, game?   
    I'm right-handed but have seen plenty of left-handed people use a computer. Just like you want more granularity over the control of your cursor with the right hand, they use the left hand. Left hand mouse (where you can make Windows or whatever OS invert the buttons) and the other hand rests on the keyboard.

    One of the first things to be deleted in my car honestly; you dont need it when you've got an exhaust, intake and a blowoff valve
     
    Funny enough I just swapped the delete plate last night for one with a vacuum line on it so I could reroute the blow off line as the computer controlled blowoff was making it constantly blow off at highway speeds. Since it's a true vacuum it doesn't blow off under light throttle and I actually hear a bit of turbo flutter (which isnt a good thing for the turbo but it's not under boost)
     
    The RS in the states also piped in fake audio from the engine through the sound system in the car. Not exactly sure how you disable that in software though

    That I actually never heard (though now that it's pointed out, I totally see it), everyone that I know just calls it MR2 and not "merde".
     
    "de" in Quebec and France are pronounced completely differently, it's true that some accents in France have pronunciation of "deux" (2) and "de" (the) that are very close , though here in Qc, they are pronounced differently, so that might be why it was never a thing here.

    Yup, exactly. It rather came to negative attention in France.
     
    Edit: I forgot; Due to this, it actually got renamed to MR-S in France in the third gen at least IIRC.
     
    @TVwazhere Something just came to my mind... The "sound symposer" on the ST models works differently based on the market. In your market it's an actual "tube" with some membrane that somewhere picks up sound and forwards it to the car's interior. In Europe it's generated by the ACM (Audio Control Module; radio).
    Did you "block" your sound symposer? Do you still use it? How do you like it? What are your thoughts on it?

    Fun fact: Just like with the Toyota MR2, the name is really unfortunate in French. MR2=merde=shit, étron means turd.
