Good is, that I finally figured out why the Duron 750 does not work in JetWay V266B mobo - forget about oldschool switch between 100 and 133MHz FSB modes, lol... (working on very low 3DMark 03 scores)  ;)

Bad is, that I still have no real idea why I cannot seems to get to 8/50MHz clocks with my FX5200 card. 12/80MHz is too high, giving scores like 73 or 65 Marks :-[
Too high!

I deserve a metal I am the ultimate piss off to the rushed Xmas shopper :) I take my time sure I'm quick to pay and fast when it's holding up people but I do not rush and I am the first to defend that employee being yelled at Cuz someone doesn't remember their pin and takes it out on them. Plus the cop was right behind me and she did not take kind to the poor kid being yelled at.

Karma is what makes my world go round :)

Never understood why people bitcoined till the weekend.

Had a great Interview with some cool people at Bitcoinbrains and they gave me the chance to try out a few new bitcoining toys.

Over the weekend I learned a hell of a lot and really enjoyed setting up the wallets and accounts and getting into coining.

Quickly it reminded me of [email protected] all over again in the fun days. Where you got a group of people together made a team and just tried to get one level above another.

Now its all about getting that next coin and next challenge done.

Really feeling a new addiction starting but think it should all be worth it if I make a few dollars or trade for some great gear.
Title: Re: General Raves Section
Post by: trodas on March 18, 2014, 02:45:35 AM
This addiction can at least be worth something, if your hardware is fast enought ;) Witch is a good thing. It is also free of govt regulations and BS, so another reason for it, even in current form the Bitcoin is not suitable for long term investment.

Washed my 82lb American staffordshire today. Not even a growl this time :)

He's a rescue dog that has fear of men due to abuse but these days he's just a big bed hog. Only took 6 months to make him into the perfect family dog.

WarThunder suxx on DX9 hardware. There are drawn 1km high trees and plenty of them. So much sometimes, that framerate drop to 0.8fps (!) from average 41fps:

...

Sometimes "fee to play" means "we need free betatesters"  ;D Buildings flying in air? Cool. Untill you hit one or two of them...  ;D 1km high trees? Cool, untill the framerate drop so bad... that you cannot control the plane...

Looks like no-one is currently testing anything on DX9 hardware (WinXP SP3, 8600GT).

Learned something my first solo flight years back.

Look confused as fuck every chance you get. This will make it so all the employees at the airport wave you from point to point and get you through all the speed checks.

Today less then 2 minutes in line and boarding a plane and got randomly screened twice. Time from getting out of cab to sitting at my gate 7 minutes.

... New record :)

         Well started off buying a reconditioned Corsair TX750 V1 PSU from tigerdirect  for $50, tested it with my PSU tester when I received it and put it on the shelf till I need it. 4 months later I slapped it into a system and its all good till the PSU hits a load and then WHAM 16v on the 12v line and shutdown. sadface indeed.  I filled out an online RMA and even though it was outside the window for reconditioned gear they accepted it... yay.

    A month later I finally receive my fixed PSU and the first thing I notice is that the metal Corsair product tags are all crooked and look sloppy. Plug it all in and WHAM same exact thing magic smoke show, now I also was using another Corsair TX750 V1 and tested that in the system and it was all cream so I thought WTF. Filled out another RMA and this time let them know it was the same issue twice and then I ranted a bit.

  Turns out Corsair is awesome and keeps my business, they sent me a shiny new RM750 Gold unit and I didn't have to pay to ship my RMA in ! Woo Hoo.

Sushi night gotta love sushi night

I have tried and tried again to love sushi, but while I can eat it, it just doesn't do anything for me (aside from some of the deep fried ones, and the shimp based ones which I do like). I wish I liked it more.

Enjoy though!

Thanks not good. Tempura everything is the way to start haha

I have always loved it. But that's probably due to being from the west coast.

I love all food though... except for eggplant that's the food of the devil...

I got through all SEVEN Witcher novels before starting up the Witcher 3. Yep I'm going to be playing and reviewing it as canon as I feel. Luckily I believe I have been so far, an example is siding with the vampires, whose leader was lover of a vampire (Regis) who helps you try to rescue/find Ciri in the novels.

What a crazy past couple of days. This is kind of a rant and a rave all rolled into one.

- 12 hours Saturday changing timing belt, water pump, tensioners, thermostat, oil, filters, and coolant. Adjust all the valves while the valve cover's off. Reassemble. Turn it on, timing went WAY out of whack courtesy of a PITA cam. Go to sleep, wake up, 3 hours later disassemble and reassemble it and it finally runs nice. A shiny valve cover's worth like +10HP right?

- Held TWO babies on Sunday night.They didn't cry or die. Crazy  :P

- Spend 14 hours yesterday at work. Every single one of the City of Calgary Recreation's point of sale (POS) machines were replaced as their system is all-or-nothing. Here's to hoping the new machines are 100% functional by the cutoff...

After an hour of fighting lead-free solder and the blown cap on my RT-N16, it's back to life. Shitty that such a small part can completely cripple the router.

Title: Re: General Raves Section
Post by: LPfan4ever on July 08, 2015, 08:54:16 AM
It's a really common issue since they used cheap caps. Looking at the board from the front of the router, it will be the 16V 680uf cap the furthest right.

Oh yeah, Unibroue is fantastic. Maudite is the best of them but they have a lot of good stuff. I've tried Blanche De Chambly, Blonde De Chambly, La Fin Du Monde, Maudite, Ephemere, and 17 Grande Reserve. I'm not a huge dark beer person so I've never given Trois Pistoles a shot, but Don De Deiu is next on the list.

Yeeeup. It's definitely a beer where you wanna sit down and enjoy your night, because 750ml of 9% is (for me) that perfect level of relaxing buzzed. At $9 a bottle it's not an often thing though  :P

Post by: Inik on July 13, 2015, 10:01:12 AM
Well, it's made here..I do expect a good price!


They are now a lot more popular so the price went down, so it's cheaper than other local speciality beers.

After living in the same place for 3 months I finally cleaned up my room (it's a downstairs living room w/ door, that was previously used as a storage room) and set up a bed, instead of sleeping on the couch from hell. I've very lazy as you probably know, which is why I just did it now. Now I just need a PC and a TV and it'll be complete.

Y'all shouldn't have been able to guess that so easily.

Still way too early to say anything about it. Shouldn't be too long till there's official word on it.  ;)

Where's the review :P Wondering if I should lean for the Oneplus 2 if I can get an invite obviously!

I've had my ZenFone for almost 2 months and been disappointed with it. The speed is great but the quality isn't. Very fragile phone. Screen cracked easy, speaker got a tiny but of metal shavings and is now toast, then yesterday it wouldn't charge with the charger that came with it. Had to use the quick charger from the S6 to revive it. Never had issues like this with all my Samsung phones, the small metal shavings always just wiped off. I just wanted the phone to last until all these new phones came out but sadly no. I have more issues with it but Ill keep it short here. Back to my old S2 since the Note 2 got smashed really bad and it took a lot to do it.

Not sure what to get now. Oneplus 2 does look sweet.

There is full laptops, desktops and servers in there some are damn impressive to, even found i7 3rd gen laptops in there before. but once they hit 3 years old they are considered end of life no matter what.

Still serve as music-play machine, but that it is :) So unstable that Windows cannot be installed on it, yet I managed uBuntu install :) So if the machine you pick will be better (another Neutron 240G, perhaps? :) than this, them I'm all for it  :P

Laptop wireless and BT was giving me issues,

I recently ran a cat 6 port to our computer room so there was no need for the wireless AC card in my system. took it out and since it was a intel AC with BT that used a mini pci adapter, I put it in my laptop and instantly it was seen and started working. Now my laptop can actually see the work wireless AC and runs at 100/100 where before I was lucky to get 3/1.2

Going from a firepro m5950 to a firepro m5100 so from 1gb ddr5 to 2gb ddr5.
M5950= 6770m

Should be a noticeable upgrade.

Swap went good other then I knocked my wifi switch cable out so I had to take it apart again and plug it in. The m5100 is detected as a m270x but tonight I will test if it can safely oc to 925mhz on core making it the same as the m275x. It's not a half bad gpu considering this laptop started with a 1000m aka gt 540.
Current specs are
I7 2.3ghz qc 2xxx series
24gb ddr3 1866
Corsair 480gb ssd
Toshiba 128gb msata
1080p 15.6" screen
M5100 aka 8870m aka m270x haha
Intel ac wifi bt 4.0 combo card
I may remove the DVD drive next for another ssd but other then that it's all maxed out.

I just realized that I could never go back to a poorly filtered case. Love it.

I just spend the 1 minute it takes to clean the intake filters on my arc midi r2 (I do it every few weeks to a month). After checking closely inside the case it is still 99+% dust free after around 16 months use, if I recall correctly. I know that the better filters collect dust, the bigger the airflow penalty, but I will take a couple degree rise for the cleanliness.

- Bottom Bracket

So you either ran your brakes to the squeaky-tang, or you ran them right through the pad material and into the metal.... *facepalm*
Yes, any new brakes will be an improvement! :P

Also, remember that the harder your pad material, the sooner you have to replace your rotor. Same for the other way around with hard rotor and soft pads. It is a balance depending on what sort of driving you do.
You want the pads to wear out first though, they are designed to be the wear item.

The other team at work has a new 64 port KVM over IP switch that they've been fighting to get working with our Broadwell-U and Skylake-U laptops. I think it's been a few weeks now and it still wasn't working. I had some spare time near the end of the day today and got it working in about half an hour. Feels good.

In the past 3 days on the Acura EL I have:
- Swapped the blower motor from my Civic
- Tore apart the interior, including centre console and dash, to install a cabin air filter that these never came with for some reason
- Installed my new stereo, including soldering the wiring harnesses together
- Ran my dash cam's permanent wiring through the dash/A-pillar
- Installed new spark plugs
- Moved the spark plug wires from my Civic
- Pulled the bumper and passenger headlight to straighten out the bent headlight support (Previous owner hit a kid on a bike with it  )
- Flushed coolant
- Changed oil and filter
- Gave her a good wand wash

I have a bunch of light bulbs and a fuel filter coming from Rock Auto, as well as needing to install the speakers I pulled from my Civic. It's been a fuckton of work but she runs pretty damn nice now for a 98.

Beer time.

Nice work. On a 98 I would also think about transmission fluid/brake fluid when you get the time (unless you know when they were swapped). How are all the brake/fuel lines holding up underneath the car? That was what went first on one of my cars with age and salted roads.

I agree with this. My company bought a new work truck 3 months ago, an 02. Well 2 weeks ago we lost all brakes while crossing the alex fraser bridge (worst bridge in the gvrd in rush hour). Blew a brake line, that was not a fun experience.

Under the car looked pretty good from first glance. I'm not really looking forward to rolling around on the road full of ice and slush for all that so it'll have to wait until spring.

Yearly review went quite well, got what I'm told is one of the higher raises being handed out this year. My manager also mentioned he was going to put my name in to get a promotion, though won't hear if I get that for months thanks to how many levels above him it has to go

Makeshift slide hammer bead breaker worked super well on a stubborn bead!
The threads of the allthread did mar my rim a bit though, most people would want to put a smaller pipe around the lower section to cover the threads. I on the other hand do not really care because this particular rim has been bent and unbent several times. It is FUBAR and I took the tire off this time to clean out the sealing goo that did not work, before installing an inner tube.
I am not replacing the rim because the tire is also mostly demolished and this stuff is pretty spendy.

I have the Savage Mark II BTVS, which is pretty similar in .22LR. Just has a fancy ass thumb stock instead of the standard stock. You should get a Nova! Imagine you're playing CSGO! http://www.cabelas.ca/product/289/benelli-nova-3-12-12-gauge-pump-action-shotguns

On another note, Wholesale Sports down in Deerfoot meadows is closing and clearing out their stock. Might be worth taking a look there if you have your PAL already.

Thanks really looking forward to the move being done and never having to deal with a landlord again,

Laughing my ass off, Tell my boss there is an issue with the ticketing system at work and that some kinds or tickets do not send emails to the clients when we reply to them, he argues that it is not possible if one type works they all work. So he goes into the logs and BAM!!!! a bigger issue than what I stated. so now he is losing it on the Dev team. Also got an apology it was more like a Rick from Rick and Morty apology but I'll take it haha
