  1. Past hour
  2. Getting HD 650's for Christmas, I'm actually really excited about that.

  3. FaceBook in Safari is a little glitchy. Items jump around as your feed scrolls.

  4. Today
  5. So after having some issues with the phone line (which we barely use), our ISP offered to bump us up to the next data plan as well as lowering the price of the contract, provided that we sign up for another 12 months (which we would have anyway). 

    Now we've jumped from 37Mbps down and 9Mbps up to 74Mbps down and 13Mbps up. Not bad. 


    1. DrMacintosh


      Just make sure to monitor the bills. 


      We pay about $40 for 100 down and up to 12 up. We regularly get above the rated download (often 120 down) 


      Bless Spectrum for not being dicks. 

  6. maybe I'll end up lurking, idk.

  7. Yes, we sell our cables in Canada (Cablemod)


    1. dizmo


      I wonder how much money they're owed xD

  8. hey Linus i sent you a message might want to check it out and BTW i probably would not know anything about computers that i do now without LTT Thanks 



  9. Really wish Art Lebedev would make an updated version of the Optimus Maximus. Mine's showing signs of dying soon and I need the number pad. Sigh.



    1. ScrappyZeDog


      Man that is a neat keyboard

  10. Honestly I cringe at >50% of posts I make because they usually have butchered grammar.

    1. ARikozuM


      I'll be keeping an eye on you. :ph34r:

  11. So I just got an XPS 13 9360 for $185. I figuratively stole it. I think the guy I got it from actually stole it.

  12. Honestly, no LTT video excites me 'till the ones of the weekend come

  13. Alright, I know this might sound like a little weird at first, but..... does anyone have a good amount of knowledge about Single Board Computers? You know, ones that are similar to Raspberry Pi etc..


    If so.., mind if I ask a question or 2 or 3 in a private message? ^_^ Trying to find out something and could do with some advice lol :P

    1. YedZed


      Why not just post a topic?


    2. Xiauj


      Yeah I probably will @YedZed, just figured I'd ask in a status-update as well :)

      I assume it would probably come under Hobby Electronics, maybe?

  14. In precisely 3.5 hours, I will be watching The Last Jedi.



  15. The 1050 Ti is overpriced. Spend the extra $50 and get a 1060 3 GB instead. 


    1. STRMfrmXMN


      But a used 970 for less money than the 1060 3GB seems solid to me tho

    2. ONOTech


      Yeah I mention that too. If you can find one for $170 or less (not that hard) then do it.

  16. Do coax NIC's exist? I don't have PPPoE service in my area nor LC fiber. Not sure if when using a cable modem if I can still port forward on a pfsense box.

  17. Zenfone 3 Zoom is really pissing me off. For a phone that's supposed to be camera focused the autofocus fucking sucks.

      As much as I love the battery life, it's getting replaced next year for sure now.

      Would like your opinion on the Samsung keyboard for my Galaxy A5. The autocomplete has gone turbo and is correcting words before there's even a logical chance for it to take a guess. I've tried typing the word "before" and after the first e, it automatically filled in the word "bin". Swipe is no better. I tried swiping the words "finger print" and it gave me "finger porting BFF". 

    4. dizmo


      Hahaha wow that's really bad! And I thought my problem sucked. Have you tried making it forget it's learned words (or whatever that is)? Also, I'm surprised you don't use SwiftKey. 

  18. Welp RIP my wallet. An emergency 1030 has been ordered and now I have $150 left lel

  19. After google chrome's latest update, single tab 1080p twitch.tv streaming will BOOST my CPU usage to 70%.

  20. Yesterday
  21. Good luck admins and moderators that will be running around merging and locking so many NN threads for the next few days.


    Your sacrifice will not be forgotten 

  22. the fucking firewall even blocks apple's app store update request... 

    give us a break already.. 


  23. 21MB download speed WooHoo!!!



    1. Praesi


      I remember when i had 20mb/s. ^^

    2. mrchow19910319


      @Praesi what do you have now?? 


      dont hurt my feelings... I need to use VPN to access google whenever I need to search something.... 

    3. mrchow19910319


      also that's mega bytes. not bits... bits will be much slower.. 

  24. fun fact: mongolia's biggest city is significantly younger than the town i live in, but houses about 100-300 times the people (depending on who you ask about the borders of what's considered "my town")


    that is both due to the fact mongolia's culture is historically nomadic, and the fact that while over 700 years ago there was an abby located here, the only modern marketable trait this location has is that it is actually, geometrically, in the middle between two of belgium's most important cities.

  26. Going to have to replace my Asus P5Q Deluxe if I want the family PC to be stable, since CPU socket is just too finicky after the LGA771 mod.  And fitting into the criteria for such a machine, pretty much this (https://asus.com/us/Motherboards/P5BPlus/) is the only board worth actually getting, since the others at this price range are lacking at least 1 thing that is needed (that's if they aren't being rip-offs):

    1. FDD+IDE support (at the very least IDE for the x6 DVD drive-my main rig has the x16 version)
    2. Support for 8GB RAM (DDR2 1066 if possible-only 6GB would be installed however)
    3. Support for 45nm CPU (I've got a Pentium 4 631 and a power hungry QX6850 if the BIOS needs flashing)
    4. Solid capacitors (really don't trust the lifespan of electrolytic caps at all, even after the capacitor plague)
    5. ATX
  27. It's official. Net neutrality is now gone in the U.S.


    If there's one good thing that comes out of this, it's that now I can prove to people that NN is better than no NN with cold hard evidence...

  28. Who designed this garbage? 


    Giant ass black bars are surely better than no black bars....
