    Unfortunately that wouldn't be feasible for me. Also, that would kinda go against one of my biggest problems with Beef jerky which is that it's often too dry.

    So I’ve been trying Smoky Barrel Jerky’s beef j…

    So an update, really didn't like the taste of the "Trail" flavour. It's wayyyyyyy too salty for my liking. The ingredients of it are literally just beef and salt. That's a dissapointment but I guess I'll know for future reference.
  3. So I’ve been trying Smoky Barrel Jerky’s beef jerky as a healthy beef jerky option in the UK (No nitrates etc). So far I’ve just tried the original version and I like it. It’s quite flavourful and it’s dry but not too dry. I would prefer if they found a way to make it more moist without adding preservatives or adding chemicals but that would likely spoil almost instantly if not instantly or require preservatives which they’ve said they don’t use and don’t want to use.


    It feels a lot less dry than Franks Beef Jerky (the other major healthy beef jerky provider in the UK). 
     

    Granted they both use different ways of producing beef jerky. Smoky Barrel as the name implies smokes beef jerky in alcohol barrels converted specifically for smoking. Franks air dries the beef.

     

    Only thing I don’t really like is the inability to buy sets of 50g pouches in whatever flavour you want. The 50g pouches only come in bundles whereas the 200g come standalone in every flavour they sell. Although I imagine they’d sell a set of 50g pouches of the same flavour if you ask them.

     

    I mention this as an issue cos once you open a pack you need to eat it within 3 days and as much as I like beef jerky I usually only eat like 50g worth at once so the 200g is not an option for me.

     

    Haven’t tried the Peppered or Trail version yet. Normally you’d get peppered and Tex Mex in the set I got but I’m guessing they ran out or might be in the process of changing the sample pack.

      there comes a time when it just becomes cheaper to buy your own dehydrator, some rub and some beef then make your own jerky.

      you can control moisture level better with a dehydrator and or smoker.

    So it looks like the 6GB 3050Ti is a lie. It lo…

    it won't tho..... It'll have 4GB. Asus showed it will.
  5. So it looks like the 6GB 3050Ti is a lie.

     

    It looks like we'll be getting a 3060 6GB instead with 24 SMs instead of 28 SMs from the 12GB card for presumably $279 MSRP even if it's a fake MSRP.

     

    3050Ti will be another 4GB x50Ti card with 20 SMs leaving the regular 3050 with 4GB VRAM and 18 SMs.

     

    This is all rumors/speculation with no official confirmation. We know for sure the 3050Ti is 4GB cos Asus did an oopsie and told people on their website it would be.

    The thing is somebody actually bought that 5700XT in the image cos when I checked back on it within an hour later it was gone. I checked all other AMD GPUs from CeX and they were all gone all well. People are desperate for cards.

    Is it wrong that sometimes I listen to this son…

    Insurgent Pick Up Custom? There are relatively easy counter measures against the Mk2 like the Stromberg or the Toreador, the Deluxo, the Mk1, Fully Loaded Ruiner Activity, shooting them out with a minigun or other options. Edit: Forgot to mention also the Hunter is good against it, the Savage used to work but it doesn't anymore cos of the new hitbox, the Hydra or Lazer should also work, Thruster also works if you use its ability to not get shot at when going in a straight line at max speed. The problem is most of these require a serious investment of GTA money
  8. Is it wrong that sometimes I listen to this song and wish there was an Oppressor Mk 3 in GTA Online?

     

    I'd be down for an Oppressor Mk 2 with 20 Deluxo/Ruiner missiles (highest accuracy in GTA Online) stretched to fit 1 driver and 1 passenger and sold as the Mk 3.

     

     

    Just imagine the untold horrors we could unleash in GTAO with a Mk 2 with Ruiner missiles 😄.

      I wish GTA would make a lobby where it was just the same cars, but none of the futuristic vehicles and planes and tanks, no orbital cannon. I miss the days when getting in a (the name escapes me, but it was the old armored vehicle, not the sedan, the big one) with the 50 cal on top and driving around the city was the biggest threat.

      Quote

      Now you can't join a lobby without getting fucked in the ass by a modder, or someone on an oppressor, the only fun way to play the game now is with a mod menu or in private lobbies so you don't get killed every three minutes.

      The problem is most of these require a serious investment of GTA money  and time to master them in order to be able to counter Mk2s.

      Don't you have to be pretty fucking good with the stromberg and Toreador? the deluxo I've used to counter before, same with the ruiner. It just gets annoying when something is that overpowered that some 13 year old can just buy a 5 mil shark card, hop on the game, and get like a 1-4 KD. And to be completely honest, I bought a mod menu, just cause it gets extremely tiring to see people actually grinding out the game then they get destroyed by some kid on a mark 2.

      I mostly wish for 

      1. GTA6
      2. R* to update the map; the couple of skyscrapers that have been under construction for eight years (2013) could be completed. The numerous houses in Los santos could open up to be sold (minus ones used to act for business running purposes)
      3. Better customization for (it feels weird to say this) girl outfits. Never did I realize (because I didn't play a female character) that the choice for things like dresses were super scarce. I realized it with the Diamond Casino where all the NPC's have fancy outfits and you cant seem to actually get them for yourself. Minor; should be left to be updated in GTA6 IMO.

    It's a shame AMD doesn't directly sell AMD cards off their website in the UK otherwise on March 18th I could prob actually do the aforementioned but swap for a 6700XT instead of a 5700XT for no extra cost .

  11. Jim from AdoredTV is back (sort of).

     

    Just not about tech stuff. He's gonna talk about what he wants to talk about on his new channel. I'd link his video but it's got a lot of stuff about religion and politics cos that's what he's focussing on now.

  12. AluminiumTech

    Would you trade performance for lighter weight…

    @genexis_x For your example no, the weight difference would need to be more substantial. I also wouldn’t want thin and light if it means soldered RAM, Wi-Fi card, SSD, or glued battery.
  13. The amount of people who try to scam you on eBay is quite intense. Half of the people who’ve messaged me over an item have tried to get me to do the PayPal money request scam.

     

    Thankfully I know not to do it but I would imagine unsuspecting users who don’t know about it could easily get scammed.

    There's only 1 model of the 6700XT for $479 MSRP for the AMD reference card. Reference Cards and AIB cards will be available on launch day of March 18th.

    Not gonna lie, even though the pricing was known it doesn't make the price less painful.

    So basically 3070 performance in the games they've shown minus 1 game.

    The Base Model should be possible to get for MSRP from AMD directly but for High Spec Model there's no chance of getting one for MSRP.

    Many of them reluctantly called Nvidia out on their BS and mostly only did so for self-preservation reasons to avoid the same thing happening to them. They really are cos Nvidia sent the message with HardwareUnboxed before that if you say bad things about Nvidia they'll screw you up. The only way for a reviewer to come to the conclusion that the product is or was "meh" is to have so much apathy that the reviewer no longer cares about letting the consumer know what cards are good or bad. This is by all accounts a bad card, mostly for it's insanely high MSRP given the

    No, it's not about that. See above for what I'm talking about. Nvidia got a free pass for their lackluster product. The only people who didn't participate in this Nvidia circle jerk are people who have nothing to lose by speaking the truth about Nvidia.

    No, it was clear from his video that it was a bad card and he thought it was a bad card. He was unwilling to say it was despite it being clear that he had reservations about the card. Steve from GamersNexus had a similar reluctance and reservation with the card because it is a bad card. They both were so afraid of Nvidia screwing them up that they decided not to say that they think it's a bad card. And many other outlets have the same hesitation to say no to Nvidia because they know Nvidia will come for them if they speak the truth. This is not about some reviewers disa

    If Linus wasn't afraid of Nvidia then he should have called the 3060 a bad card because of how bad it is.
