Is there anything more UNcomfy than reading ebooks on a desktop computer?

Is becoming a system admin hard
Which one of you did this?
I love you.

I've also owned a Early Mac (with an external HDD - I think it died when my Mom hit it too hard) and IBM XT. Also had a NES. Earliest 'current' tech to buy was a Costco Daewoo computer and N64.
What obsolete tech did you own as a kid?
>I've also owned a Early Mac (with an external HDD - I think it died when my Mom hit it too hard) and IBM XT. Also had a NES.
Forgot the mention that I only have the NES still around. I think it is broken, however.
I kind of wish I had kept them.
In 1986 or so, for some reason my dad bought a Commodore 128 instead of an Amiga. It was somewhat current but man, all that lost opportunity.
I think it might have been because we knew someone who was big in this massive pirating ring that operated locally, and we could get 64/128 software. We literally never bought software other than the disks that came with peripherals like the Koala Pad.

Leave Apple to me
i have a 144hz monitor. therefore my frametime should be 6.9444 ms. (1000ms / 144 fps = 6.9444 ms per frame)
CSGO has horrible frametime variance, going up to 16ms (equivalent to a 60hz monitor) every few frames.
How do I fix this?
im trying to convert from linux mint to windows 10 but i only have 1 hard drive. how do i convert my hard drive to ntfs?
Why aren't you doing it yet?
Nothing on my home connection, but I figured I'd check my cellular IP (it's dynamic, so it should be fun, right?)
Who the fuck downloads all this? On CELLULAR DATA.
there was also AutoCAD
Remember me, fuckers?

It was really great.
Probably the best thing Microshit has ever done.
Anything before and after is garbage.
Do you rike it?
This is where we wait for the latest AMD graphics card which AMD will surely release in a timely manner and will definitely blow all of our minds, no questions asked, 100% guaranteed, no chance it'll fail, just you wait.

RX Vega is arriving in Portland for PDXLAN today through this weekend. You know the drill, if you're attending PDXLAN, go take some videos and leak them here, then leak them to VideoCardz so they can then be leaked here too.
Last stop is the big reveal at SIGGRAPH 2017 on July 30th.
Vega is almost DOA so wait Navi
Random rumor by unverified faggot on leddit
>Reference models are already stockpiling at one company with which I have contacts. They apparently have "low thousands" ready for release.
>They usually have tens of thousands, though, but this is apparently a very expensive GPU. Supposedly priced above the 1080 at the top (my contact doesn't have pricing info outside of internal rumblings).
>The company is a primary supplier, not a reseller.
I have a pretty straight forward board in front of me. But I'm still new to working with a multimeter and understanding it.
Shouldn't this resistor circled be 650 omh if I read it on my meter? If it doesn't, I take it that is most likely my problem on why its not working.
Actually now that I look at it again, I think that brown is actually gold.
So 6.5 Ohms 10%?
Just purchased a delid tool, thermal grizzly conductonaut liquid metal tim, and will be delidding two of my processors soon. Will also be relidding it afterwards, too.
What am I in for?
So I'll be delidding my Skylake 6700k and Devil's Canyon 4690k.
Originally just wanted to do this on the Skylake 6700k, but I think I'll go ahead on my other processor, too. 6700k is barely stable at 4.8GHz at 1.44v, but kinda feel the voltage is a bit excessive and moving to a liquid metal TIM should help me control temperatures and therefore be able to use lower voltages a bit without affecting the overclock. It can get up to 80C on an x264 loop stress test (AIDA64 Extreme reaches 73C) on a H100i V2 with two good Maglev fans.
In my head it makes more sense to prolong the life of the CPU by foregoing Intel's shitty TIM, rather than sticking to Intel's TIM and letting my CPU cook itself to death over the next few years. At least by delidding it, I can prolong its lifespan by having better control over thermals and lower voltages.
Reason being is that Corsair Link reports the H100iV2 as being 40C under load, but the CPU package itself is 80C under load. If perfect thermal transfer happened, these two temperatures would be equalized, but the fact of the matter is that there's a huge temperature gap since the shitty TIM is letting the CPU cook itself.
Also want to do it to my 4690k running at 4.5GHz because it's currently in a mini-ITX case (portable LAN/HomeTheater PC) with a small cooler, and controlling the thermals would be a big boon for it too.
I guess we'll see. The delid tools on the market seem to have good reputation for delidding, barring the poorly manufactured 3d printed plastic ones that still require a hammer/vice to delid.
