Forum Topic "It's official. I have checked out for the day."

Wolfemane 7 Builds 3 points 16 days ago

Yup. I’m on the edge of checking out. 60h+ work weeks since June , very little time with my kids, no time with my wife, and spending off hours when kids and wife are asleep to learn the 3D print process to get my printer up to the quality I want. All of which is holding me up from parting out a half dozen computers collecting dust in my office and finishing up a few upgrade projects on my house I started prior to going on 60h work weeks. So I’m a bit fried

But, I’m not dealing with lost identify or fraud so... perspective. Don’t feel so overwhelmed anymore. :)

Hope the week gets better!

Forum Topic "What's your thought about electronic license plates?"

Yes, the company stated that users can turn off connectivity.

The plates are only being sold and installed at a couple specific dealerships.

Forum Topic "What's your thought about electronic license plates?"

Wolfemane 7 Builds 2 points 18 days ago

It’s a pilot program that is absolutley not mandatory, and I doubt ever will.. Not sure about Arizona, but in California the only thing the local government has done is authorize the use of the plates and limit the use to only .5% of registered cars. The company making and distributing them is called Revive Auto and as of right now only have something like 120 vehicles in Sacramento using them, and from what I’ve read only official vehicles display adds, amber alerts, and whatever. And the vehicle has to be parked and off for those messages to be displayed. They DO offer them to consumers for $700 (front plate only, still need a standard plate up front) and a $7 a month use fee and they include a lot of other functionality (kinda like your cell phone... but for your car). They aren’t mandatory (this is absolutley worth repeating), they don’t report data to the DMV, law enforcement, or any other third party agency (which actually makes some data security groups nervous).

The program results have to be reported by 2020. It’s part of a much broader look at "alternatives to stickers, tabs, license plates, and registration cards.". And a better way to register would be nice. Registration is a multipart procedure In Washington (smog/emissions control), license and registration. Would be nice to go to emissions, get the check done and then just pay for the tabs. No going to the dmv or waiting for tabs to show up. Small benefit, but I can see a broader use for them.

The program will be rolled out in limited use in Texas and Florida (which I think finally rolled out).

Forum Topic "New Keyboard!"

Wolfemane 7 Builds 3 points 24 days ago

I am brutal on keyboards. My desk is a liter of components, tools, 3D printer, filament, solder, and the sad tattered broken remains of many of my sons toys. I work almost exclusively at my desk and get sucked in for long hours. I spill liquids, drop tools, knock over, and crush my keyboards. I usually have to replace them within a years time. So.. durability is an absolute must and I have yet to find a good keyboard (with number pad) that can stand up to the abuse Me and my own deliver.

I got a Corsair k70 Mk 2 with silent switches for about the same price as your kB (amazon owed me). I’ve had it for about two months and I can tell it’s not going to make it a full year. It’s not a good keyboard, feels uber cheap, doesn’t have the weight I’d have expected, and overall build quality is very poor. I’ve used silent switch keys before and the ones in the Corsair board just feel super mushy, Id say even worse than a midrange membrane keyboard.

Once this goes, I’ll probably just break down and do a diy kit with a full metal chassis and waterproof the dark out of it.

Wolfemane 7 Builds 2 points 29 days ago

One year contract to basically pay off a $7k loan. I wouldn’t hesitate. Pocket whatever cash you can and consider buying your own truck. I’ve been told (grain of sight and always rolled my eyes) you can earn a lot more with your own rig, and have a wider range of freedom. There are downsides to it vs running a company truck in sure. I used to know a retired couple who sold everything they owned and bought a truck. That’s how they spend their retirement years.

Geez... I need to really finish reading posts before posting.

Consistent problem from the very beginning. Though i found that post early on and it did help resolve several other problems i was having (delamination and bed adhesion).

Just after making this post My wife ran across an ended 3 Facebook community (I don’t have Facebook, never thought of looking there), and then found an old conversation about wall thickness. My settings are already a bit high over recommended, but I increased my wall thickness anywyas and ran my test print. the strength was 10 fold better, but quality was abysmal.

Case of fix one problem create another. I think the higher temp I’m running with the thicker wall is creating an issue. I have another run goOmg bownwith thr thicket wall settings, and lower nozzle temp.

I’m not a huge fan of the Verge. But looking at a few aspects of that video, there is no way this video isn’t a hoax or a giant troll. It’s no surprise, as what’s his name who runs it has stated tech youtubers aren’t real tech journalist.

No, this video was made to intentionally push the buttons of tech youtubers (and sites like this). And the community has taken the bait hook, line, and sinker.

Send me a private message with the item you want. plus an email address associated with PayPal (should include a shipping address as well). I will then send an invoice through paypal with the item(s) requested and a price, you will pay for it, and then I will set up shipping. When a tacking number has been created, it will be associated to the paypal transaction for easy tracking.

PayPal has a LOT of the same buyer protection programs in place, and you can ship right from within PayPal as well ( and receive similar discounts as you do in WoW). And the PayPal tax isn’t as bad.

I used both to play WoW for over a week each. With graphics level set to 7 and resolution set to 3440x1440 (a almost Nm was left at 3440x1440), I was getting between 30 and 45 FPS in open environment (same frame rate before and after the new xpack launch) and dungeons. I got a bit of a dip in raids, but not bad. I normally run at bare minimum graphics level in raids anyways, regardless of gpu, so that helped bump up FPS with these cards. I used one of the cards as one of the last cards I tested, for the first week of the new xpack launch. Lvled my rogue from 110 to 120. When I finally pulled the card I was @ 331 Ilvl. So I spent a good Anount of time with it.

I don’t have fortnite, but Techspot did a massive review of fortnite using a ton of video cards. At high settings with a 560 4gb, They were able to get an average 45fps average. I played a few other games with it. Destiny 2 played ok @ 3440x1440 with low settings. Maintained 30fps with a few dips depending on what was going on. Not great, but I WAS at a resolution that was beyond the cards intended use. Doom ran pretty good too (forgot to record FPS, but hovered around 45fpsnon a mix of medium settings).

Please keep in mind these cards were all tested in a system with a 1700x OCed to 4ghz, 16gb Ram, and games were installed on a 960 Pro. So depending on what you build FPS will very. But I seriously doubt you’ll be runnin @ 3440x1440. These 560’s really have impressed me Gaming wise, and I bet they will donrather well @ 1080.

I'm gonna go ahead and agree with OP on this one. Nvidia is pulling the same BS Intel has been doing, and the same nonsense any company with a majority of the industry in their pocket with no real expectations of competition. They are using the name game to jack prices up. the 2070 should have been named the 2080, 2080 should be the TI and the Ti is really the entry level Titan. But remember, Titan isn't for gaming so Nvidia needed a way to get "gamers" to spend more on their upper level cards. HAZAH, no longer titan but... "TI".

shakes head and people are totally ok with this.

I love hard candies. I've found very few I don't like. I don't have a favorite flavor, or a least favorite flavor. I've had a few incredibly STRANGE flavors though. But non I've flat out said no to.

I have a soft spot for hard candies. A few years ago I discovered a little candy shop in Florida that does hand made hard candies. The place is called Lofty Pursuits and their online store is called Public Displays of Confection. Wife and I order a variety of batches through out the year and has become our norm for Easter Candy. We are even contemplating ordering a large batch (as each candy comes in a little presealed pouch) for Halloween.

The strangeness in this one is I originally discovered this place in my home clear across the other side of the states while mindlessly cruising on you tube. The owner has a youtube channel where he makes a variety of image and drop candies. Along with other items. His narrative is wonderful, and his little stories are fantastic. Anyone interested can check out the channel at Lofty Pursuits.

We are such big fans that we are actually planning a vacation that revolves around visiting this shop. Can. Not. Wait.

Use a 4 pin fan splittler to link the front and rear fans together off one fan header. Should resolve your fan issue. Make front fan intake, rear fan exhaust.

Or, if you don't have the rear fan actually hooked up. Use a 3 way splitter and combine the cooler fan with the case fans.
