You aren't going to find it for download. Ubisoft would be the distributor and they haven't put it on their d/l service.

You can, however, buy it off Amazon.

My wife and I picked up a bunch of these little guys when we were renting. I was completely blown away by how amazing they were. Great night vision, can record to any device on your network or attached to your network. You can even record with your phone anywhere as you can remote into them. They also have the capability to hold an sd card up to 128gb. and can to continually recording onto those as well.

The first one isn't the easiest to get setup, but once you get the process the others are simple. The software varies. These cameras are sold on amazon by LOTS of Chinese companies. The name constantly changes on them, and when it does more than likely the software changes too. So i would recommend picking up all that you need at once.

best part you get immediate notifications once you set up motion detection. And it's pretty sophisticated!!! These little cameras blew my mind and were a great investment when we rented. We painted them to match the interior and exterior paint to hide them a little better and had full visual cover of the exterior and major parts of the interior. No monthly fees (all data recorded to an offsite NAS i have set up at work), 1080p file sizes aren't huge but are incredibly detailed (we were able to record license plates from cars passing by across the street!).

Anyways, figured I'd pass this on as I used to rent a home too.

I was only referring to someone who already has a z87/97 playform but didn’t invest in the k series at the time. God no would I recommend buying a z97 boars just to pair with a NIB 4790k.

I’d have 0 worry of breaking the board. I have boards from 2000 and 2001 that still work. Out of all the hardware I bought and resold, I think I had one bad motherboard. I had a few with bent pins, but those were easy fixes.

Wolfemane 7 Builds 2 points 10 days ago

Come on dude... going to an 8600k would require motherboard and expensive memory. $500 minimum. And the 8600k is no better than the 4790k. For someone looking to cap out their z97 system (or even z87) paying even $300 would still be better than going z370 unless it was to upgrade to the 8700k or 8086k, and even then it's not worth all that extra money. Be smarter to invest the extra cash into a GPU than a cpu/motherboard/memory upgrade. $329 might be a little high, but $250 is not unreasonable compared to average sold prices on ebay.

4790k still holds it's value for a reason. There is so little actual real world performance difference between it and the current line up that a full system upgrade makes little sense unless you're after some of the modern convenience of current motherboards.

I've been using the harbor freight 5gal wet vac for 10 years without issue.. It's not that big of an investment, and has a much longer (and super useful) life than a single summer.

Forum Topic "Paypal credit monthly fee"

Wolfemane 7 Builds 2 points 10 days ago

Advice, take it however you want.

If you can make payments, make payments to a savings account and then spend from there. This type of dept (frivolous debt) is just not worth it and has more potential to get you into trouble than helping you. This card provides no benefit what-so-ever, and has massive APR. It's also such a low dollar amount that it will have little to no impact on your credit (unless you don't actually make the payments).

Nothing is going to change in the 6 months that you can't wait.

Debt almost always starts small, and can easily snowball out of control. Take it from someone who screwed up early in life when it comes to debt. if it's not a car, home, or something you can pay off every month to improve credit, then frivolousness debt is NOT worth it.

Save your money, make a budget, spend from there.

Zotac has a 3 year warranty on their GPU's. And they pay for shipping in both directions. Zotac doesn't require proof of purchase for warranty either, just the s/n.

EVGA has a 1 - 3 year warranty passed on some convoluted sku naming methods (some cards have 2 years, some have 3 and it can different within SAME models). EVGA offers a "transferable limited warranty" based on, again, a very convoluted sku naming method.

I'd say customer service is about on par, though from personal experience Zotac was far easier to deal with. Way more cut and dry. Had a new 1080ti in hand 3 days after filing warranty on a an Amp! Extreme with coil whine. They even sent the new card first, with a return shipping label.

EVGA has been dicken around on a straight forward warranty claim I filed early may.

Forum Topic "Supreme court: Bakery wins the right to refuse making a cake."

Wolfemane 7 Builds 2 points 1 month ago

I have to regularly visit Atlanta (and Alpharetta), for updated training in my line of work. I live int he Pacific NW (which see's it's fair share of racism, and most of the time is called out), and every time I go to Georgia I CLEARLY see what gorkti is talking about.

An example:

Last month I was waiting in line at a McDonald's in Alpharetta. There were a few people in line, and only one person at the counter taking orders, and it was a white guy. He helps the first two people pretty promptly, both of which were white. The next person in line was a non white person (much much darker skin). The McDonalds guy doesn't acknowledge him, leaves the register and goes and wipes tables. I'm next in line after this dark skinned guy (and I'm as white as you can get... Irish white). Soon as the employee finishes he walks straight to me and asks what I'd like to order. I polity told him the gentleman in front of me was first. The dipshit looks at me, gives the dark skinned guy a one over, and says to me, "oh..." and walks back around to help him.

I promptly left. And I filled a complaint with McDonalds (not that that will have any effect).

I encountered this behavior at LEAST two or three times in a one week period when I'm in the Atlanta/Alpharetta area. And it's not just on the employee side, I see the same nonsense with white folk being helped by black or dark skinned folk.

Wolfemane 7 Builds 2 points 1 month ago

Yeah, agreed. Yelp, google reviews, new egg reviews, amazon reviews, and so on are all bottomless swamps. For us, if we were going for pizza or burgers or something then we would have gone withehat we like. But we were planning on dropping more money on our reception, which took long 70+ hours for over a year to save for. Wading through those reviews to find a place that we knew would cater to our needs ( this was in Ogden, Utah... ) was necessary. And in the end, we found a good company that turned out to be 10000000x better than we expected.

The same goes for this guy. I’d bet his cakes go for some pretty big bucks. Our wedding cake was made by my mom, but the caterer estimated if we had bought it, we’d have spent $2k - $5k. So... yeah, sifting through those reviews to find a place worthy of dropping that kind of cash is important.

And, I can understand standing up for your values. But this guy was hiding behind religion to back his prejudice. He was smart enough to know kicking them flat out and refusing all service would have brought the ban hammer. And this type of nonsense opens the door to more of this behavior, and pushes it even farther.

Forum Topic "Supreme court: Bakery wins the right to refuse making a cake."

Wolfemane 7 Builds 2 points 1 month ago

Yelp is far more relevant in high population areas than you think. Any review site holds its weight in high population areas, specially when it comes to specialty shops like this. When my wife and I were planning our wedding and were looking at catering companies, we relied heavily on review sites like yelp and google review, and wouldn’t even call places with less than 3 stars (or 75% or less approval). Yes a ton of those yelp reviews will be deleted, but the damage is done and his place of business won’t see high marks on those review sites.

$100k for a business like his is chump change and won’t last more than a month. I doubt he will go out of business but growth will be an even bigger challenge than it already was.

I hate defending aholes like this, but he didn’t turn these folk away. Or refuse total service. He also didn’t kick them out. What he did was refuse to make a specialty cake for them. He did offer them any of the Pre made cakes in his shop. If this turd hadn’t mentioned religion and his beliefs on the gays as his reason for refusing to make the cake, and just flat out said he had the right to refuse service and kept his mouth shut... this wouldn’t have ever made it into the news.

When I used to manage a popular print/copy center years ago, I used to refuse service to ********* who became to difficult to work with. We even had a sign clearly posted that said WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO REFUSE SERVICE TO ANYONE. And that still applies today.

A company has the right to dictate how it can operate, and who they want to associate with for the GOOD of their business.

Look at the NFL. They are going to fine players who take a knee during the anthem. As an organization, that is their right as a business to do. Same goes for someone of religions beliefs who refuses to service someone against his beliefs. It's utter nonsense but they hacve hte right to do what they see fit for the good of their business.

That's the ultimate power of religion. Allowing people to do bad things in the guise of doing good in the name of their god.

Other than Rogue One though, I consider Solo and the new trilogy to be about on par with the prequels. They are just plain terrible. Writing is bad, original cast should never have been in them, the nostalgia was way to heavy (did Abrams learn NOTHING from the Star Trek reboot?).

The new actors weren't bad per say, but they were directed badly and the editing was... was.... well it was George Lucas bad. The only thing Disney learned and wanted was how well Star Wars merch sells regardless of how good/bad a movie is.

Forum Topic "Would you reccomend solar power?"

Wolfemane 7 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Yeah power in Cali and Nevada has seen price increases, which is ridiculous, absolute greed. They should be extatic that solar is becoming more of a viable option for people, specially since a couple major cities actually have residents feed back into the grid as part of the tax breaks and refund.

I know Sierra Pacific Power just got biatched slapped this past election. They had northern Nevada by the balls when it came to solar. Now that their non sense regulations have been lifted solar has taken off in Reno and the surrounding shack towns.

Buying a new home in Cali anywhere is gonna be an expenaive endeavor these days. I have no doubt they are involved with politics. Though, if it can bring some solar manufacturing back into the states that would be a nice bonus. I remember when the largest facility on the west coast closed its doors. They were in Portland, good friend of mine worked for them.

I’ll still hold that going solar has no real draw backs other than selling he house one installed in before receiving the full extent of tax breaks and refunds made available. I know up here in the NW (Seattle on down to Portland at least) solar is highly encouraged, and there are a lot of kick backs. In the tune of 65% - 70% return on investment in 5-8 years just in incentives.

Forum Topic "Would you reccomend solar power?"

Wolfemane 7 Builds 2 points 1 month ago

We are going to have solar installed at the end of the year, and this is what we've learned so far fromt he various companies in the southern Washington/northern Oregon area. You can't view solar in terms of saving money. Cause that's not how it works. When you have a solar system put in, you are basically taking yourself off the grid, or feeding excess generated power back into the grid. Just taking yourself off the grid helps by reducing the stress on whatever power grid you are on. One house doesn't seem like much, but it's along the same lines of of recycling. If you recycle, you're helping. Eventually more and more people will. Look at California for example. They have a major energy crisis every summer. From what I've been reading over the past few years is that all new homes are being built with Solar, part of a solution to help unburden already over burdened power grids. In my area, the power company will even PAY to have us supply power to the grid, and in case of cloudiness (which we have a lot of) our battery back ups kick in. If that fails we start pulling power off the main grid.

Depending on your state, you can use your solar system as a tax write off and get special returns for both federal and state (if your state has those). Not only that, but Solar Systems increase the value of the house. It does depend on where you live, but here in Washington and Oregon it's viewed as a wanted commodity, and valued as such.

So the real advice I can give you is call all the solar companies in your area and call your power company. If you can afford the initial cost, and you live in an area that solar will be beneficial. Then i say go for it. You're helping deal with a MUCH bigger problem.

Forum Topic "Would you reccomend solar power?"

Wolfemane 7 Builds 5 points 1 month ago

It's far from a gimmick. So much so NOT a gimmick that in California all new homes are being built with soloar. it goes far beyond saving money. Going solar relieves stress on the already over burdened electrical grid in most major areas. Specially along the coasts.

AND on top of that, most states have huge refunds when putting in solar. In Washington, a decent system will run you $20k - $40k. And over the next 5 - 8 years the buyer will see a 65% return on that initial investment in tax breaks and refunds. AND Solar increases the value of a home (and depending on the area sometimes substantially).

Hell, in Washington, Oregon, and California you have the option of feeding extra power BACK to the power companies, and they pay for it.

Solar is absolutely worth it if you know and understand the full scope of the investment.
