Old-timey, obscure & obsolete component thread
It's a COM-2CL-PCI non-isolated RS-232C 2ch card. Serial ports have been gone from consumer computing for so long that I just assumed it's something outdated. Specialization & low volume explains the high price.
Post homescreens. What apps does /g/ use regularly
Been working on this over in the /wg/ thread.
Drivers of /g/, do any of you guys use Dashcams?
I want to get one just so I can be safe on the road if I'm in an accident, is there a recommended device to go for?
I've heard really mixed things about some dashcams being very unreliable not saving footage correctly etc.
Use an old smartphone, we all have a few of them lying around.
Start recording when you start driving.
If nothing happens, simply tap "delete" when you finished driving.
That's what I do because it's simple and free, but I'm sure there is even apps for that.
>I want to get one just so I can be safe on the road if I'm in an accident
If you're safe depends on the rules of the country that you're in. In Germany for example, they are kind of not allowed (data protection issues, so only under circumstances and technical limitations and blah), and thus the footage is not really useful because it can be turned down.
And, oh, yeah sure, Google, that tram is totally a Bus.
This shit keeps getting shoved down my throat.
So how is it? Is it good or is it botnet
what filesystem do you recommend /g/, will be running fde.
is ext4 performance good on SSDs?
>Use ext4 or XFS
I second this, but not for the reasons mentioned. DAX is soon going to be a thing, and only ext4 and xfs will be able to support it.
Also, make sure that you set your block size to the same as your page size.

In the last update, many people complained about not having the R3 1200. I will not put the 1200 above the i3, but I can put it one tier below.
Threadripper has a huge advantage over the Intel stuff, but only when it comes to heavily threaded stuff? Add/not add? Add some extra text to the tiers beyond the i7 7700K saying that these tiers are meant for gaming+streaming+productivity, and that pure gaming stops at the i7?
Vega64 at $700 is not logical.
Your comments, suggestions, and criticisms are welcome.
Is it time to retire my i5 2500k? I don't feel like it's bottle necking my performance, but then I've never used anything else in this set up. Would I see many gains going to something like a Ryzen?

Built the system in 2011, only thing I've swapped out since was the HD6970 for the 390
Is it worth upgrading CPU or am I falling for a meme here?
There have been certain games that I feel like my performance doesn't come anywhere near the norm reported with this card (Witcher 3 comes to mind, I was struggling to push 50 FPS on ultra, all the review sites we're hitting 60 no problem) no idea if that's CPU related though.
>switching to anything while current gen consoles are all still weaker than $200-300 cards
Your system is obviously not being used for rendering or anything with high compute requirements.
