  1. Since there is a show us your pc spec I figured why not show us your pc look ! :3
  2. I've been thinking of buying a new computer for while now because my current one (a Dell all-in-one) is slow AF and it's hard and time-consuming to work on my projects and use the internet. It sometimes says that there isn't any internet, even though it's connected and my phone is using the internet connection just fine. I've thought about getting a tower with Windows 10, with at least 1TB hard drive/memoy, more-than-enough of RAM, a good processor, etc. I also want a wireless keyboard and mouse and dual screens. I'd use one screen for my work and use the other for internet-surfing and/or using Discord. Do any of your have any recommendations for the brand of computer? Should I go to Walmart or Best Buy? I'm on a budget, so I need options that are less than $500. Also, what can I do get my current and new computer to run as fast as possible and get rid of any/all viruses and shit? Thanks.
  3. Tell everyone about your computer (or computers, if you use more than one)! What model is it and what OS does it run? Myself, I work from two laptops: an HP Pavilion dv6-3170ca for school, and an HP EliteBook 8740w for home (mostly) - both run Windows 7 x64. Here's the smaller one: Specs: Intel i5 2.2 GHz Dual Core w/ Hyper-Threading (up to 2.8 GHz w/ TurboBoost) integrated graphics 4 GB DDR3 RAM 500 GB 7200 RPM hard drive 15" glossy screen (1366x768x24) fingerprint reader Blu-ray drive (read-only) And the larger: Specs: Intel i7 1.7 GHz Quad Core w/ Hyper-Threading (up to 3.06 GHz w/ TurboBoost) NVIDIA Quadro 5000M GPU w/ 2 GB GDDR5 VRAM 8 GB DDR3 RAM (high speed - 1333 MHz!) 500 GB 7200 RPM hard drive 17" 1.07 billion-colour matte screen (1920x1200x30) fingerprint reader backlit, spillproof keyboard Both are beautiful computers and serve me really well. I use the dv6 for school because it wasn't a very expensive computer and has great battery life, and the EliteBook is my awesome gaming/do-it-all machine.
  4. Just 3 minutes ago, my iPhone's battery was at 60%, but now, it's at 45%. What does this mean?
  5. Im looking for a good midrange / budget laptop with usb type c , full hdmi out , one or 2 usb 3.0s and a quiet keybored, it can be a i3 or i5 8th gen cpu or ryzen. Any suggestions ? :3
  6. I was looking at new phones the other day and realized I don't need an audio jack in my phone because all my ear buds and head sets are Bluetooth anyway. Without the audio jack usually the phone has a different feature implemented in it's place which can be more useful for me. Also aren't there adapters to plug in wired headphones into the charging port?
  7. So MLP is over, at least the series. Game of Thrones committed suicide(I'm still impatiently waiting for the books). Star Wars and Star Trek are dead and buried, dug up and defiled, on and on. Even the MCU seems to have run out of steam. Etc, etc. So, what do you think will be your new thing? For me: Dark Crystal - The series started out great and I want more Thraa. The Orville - Need my space opera and the Orville is lots of fun. Avatar - The movie gets criticized a lot for being cliched but I loved the world and I think the upcoming movies are going to be great.
  8. So I have been thinking about buying a VPN so that I could watch Netflix and not only my countries content, but American and Australian as well. Does anyone use it? I have been reading a lot lately, and I am choosing between two top ones: NordVPN and ExpressVPN. I am thinking about Nord, as they have a 75% discount now. I need your advice, friends! Help me to choose?
  9. For everyone who uses Mac OS Sierra, if the Safari update goes haywire or the computer shuts down while it is updating, launch “Finder” then go to <USER NAME>s MacBook Pro > Applications > Library > Updates > 061-22609 (numbers may vary) and inside you will find a binary named “Safari13.0.2HighSierra.pkg” click (or double click) on the File to run the installer.
  10. I’ve tried to free up space, I’ve tried making a system restart, I’ve tried troubleshooting, and the computer still crashes and overall doesn’t work. Updates never install despite actually having just enough space left and troubleshooting hurts the computer more than it helps it. If anyone has any suggestions or has experienced this before, please feel free to share. I’m sorry that I’ve made 1 or 2 computer forums already, but I’m running out of things to try.
  11. I've had a Samsung Galaxy S4 mini for about three years and have finally bought a new phone I bought a Doogee F5. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B017GQQ4AA/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 It seems to have pretty good reviews on Amazon and Youtube and it's a decent price
  12. Well guys, if you haven't heard... Windows XP, the 13 year old OS, is now ending support completely. I loved this OS, and I still use it to this day, but soon I will be looking to upgrade. The market for XP still holds about a 3rd of PC users today, and I'm sure everyone gets at least a little nostalgic when they remember it...I know I certainly do! So how will you remember this brilliant OS? Positively? fondly? negatively? I remixed the install theme to pay respects, you can check it out here. I just felt that since today is the last day, and the official End of Support, we should all raise a glass to one of the biggest technological landmarks in history...Windows XP.
  13. Is this the right forum? Where can I find a mlp android phone theme at? Ringtone? Zedge doesnt have any good ones.
  14. so im in the market for a soundbar with true i mean true surround sound that can pack a punch in movies and games , i was wondering if anyone here has one and can tell a bit about it ? im thinking of getting the vizio 36inch 5.1 soundbar...also what do you think about them ? :3
  15. Lately, my HP laptop has been crashing on every single application I use, whether it’s a game with tons of assets or a small program such as the Folders. Sometimes it even crashes before I can do anything and it turns parts of the screen black. I believe this started once I check marked everything on the Disk Cleanup. Well, thats at least when it got worse. I only did that cause I experienced crashes after playing a game I downloaded in a zip folder (it’s deleted now, BTW). I don’t know how to fix this and I don’t want to do anything that involves temporarily deleting data since that didn’t work out the last time. Does anyone know how to fix this? TL:DR; Computer keeps crashing on everything, plz help
  16. I had a website in mind to buy an Oculus Rift from and that website doesn’t seem to be available anymore. I want to find an Oculus Rift that’s new that’s in the $100-$200 range. I’ve been looking at some listings myself, but I would like to know if there are any that actually fit that range if possible. Does anyone have any good listings they would like to share?
  17. In a world where touch screens pnones with virtual keyboards dominate the land, one company is more than willing to stand out. And no, it's not BlackBerry this time. It's Unihertz, the Chinese phone manufacturer known for quirky smartphone choices are now running a kick-starter to fund their latest project, the Titan. A mammoth of a smart phone that looks like a BlackBerry Passport coated in armor. This is more comparable in size to a game boy color than an Iphone X. But there apparently is a market, as the project's kick starter has made nearly 7x the original goal with two weeks remaining. So what do you think of a rugged throwback like this entering the market? Are you surprised that there's still a market for tactile keyboard phones? Are we at the point where the smartphone market is too supersaturated with the same basic design and features that phones like this can get even a little traction?
  18. Hello. I'm trying to figure out what language and writing system is used by the ponies in Equestria, because I plan to use some of these informations in a fanfic I'm preparing to make. From this snapshot from S01E01 "Mare in the Moon" we can get some informations about the language and writing: http://sasq.comyr.com/Stuff/Jajca/QC/sci/Book.png I recreated it below as a vector graphics without any perspective to improve the clarity: Below the book there is a transcript of what is supposedly written there in English. I mean, we hear Twilight speaking English in the series, but I consider it just an English dubbing replacing the original Equine language This text couldn't be written in English, because there's lot more letters in it than is visible in the above book page. So the original language must be different, and written more compactly than just plain English when written in Latin alphabet. Besides, why should ponies speak English in the first place instead of some other language of their own? And this is exactly what I'm trying to figure out: what language they use, how does it work, and how is it written. We can see some interesting observations here: Words are separated by spaces. Text is aligned in horizontal lines. The writing system seems to be syllabic (that is, an abjad, like Arabic, Hebrew, Japanese or Ancient Egyptian), because words are quite short: 3 glyphs on average, usually 1...4 glyphs, longer words are rare. In syllabic writing systems words tend to be short, because only consonants are written down, and vowels are default, or known from context, or marked up with additional diacritics. In writing system where vowels are written explicitly, words are usually longer. The alphabet consists probably of only 10 glyphs (see the table below). There may be more, but only these 10 are visible in this particular book page. If you know about any more, please tell me in which episode you've seen them, with time stamp. The writing system seems to be hieroglyphic, similar to Ancient Egyptian or Paleo Hebrew. I suspect these glyphs could have started as ideograms (that is, each one represented only one idea, as a whole). But later on ancient ponies figured out that they can join those ideograms together to make composite words, joining the meanings of the particular ideograms together. And for these words to be possible to pronounce, they read the first syllables of the subsequent glyphs of a word. (I'll explain it further in a minute...) One of the glyphs seems to be some kind of a prefix (or suffix): the Pony Tail glyph. It is often attached to the rump of a Horse glyph, but both these glyphs can also be used alone. In one place it's also attached to a Star glyph, making a "comet". If it's really some kind of a prefix/suffix, it should correspond to a sound which is easily joined to any other sound, like "H", for example. But, maybe it's just a coincidence... I don't know which direction it should be read: left-to-right, or right-to-left, or interleaved. But if it resembles Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs in any way, then maybe the direction can be figured out from the glyphs themselves: In Ancient Egyptian one reads a line of glyphs in a way to "meet" subsequent glyphs "from their fronts". For example, if some figure looks to the right, you need to approach it from right to left to "meet it face-to-face". So one could read Egyptian hieroglyphs in both directions, according to the direction of "looking" of these glyphs. In pony alphabet, horse figures are looking to the right, so it is probably read right-to-left, as in Hebrew. But maybe other directions are also possible (when the figures are mirror-imaged and look to the left). There's some evidence for it. For example, when Spike writes his notes in Episode 1, the bump in the papyrus under his feather seem to move right-to-left and left-to-right interchangeably. So it's possible that the direction is switched on line-by-line basis. Also, when Twilight looks through her books in Episode 1, you can clearly see that she always flips pages from right to left (that is, starting from the last page and going "back" to the first page of the book). This may suggest that books are written from the last page to the first, from right to left line/page. I don't know what sounds should be pronounced for those glyphs, but I tried to figure out the sound from the ideograms themselves. For example, I thought the best sound for the Horseshoe glyph would be the clopping "K" sound made by horse hooves clopping on the ground. For the glyph depicting Snake (at least I see a snake there, but it might also be a rope) could correspond to the hissing sound, like "S" or "Sh". The Thunder Bolt glyph could be related to some violent, "bursting" sounds, like "B", "D", or maybe electrical buzzing sound, like "Z". But I really have no clue what sounds these should be. Any ideas? In the following table, I show the whole alphabet: Beside the original hieroglyphs, I also added my own ideas of their corresponding hieratic versions, that is, for quick hand writing purposes. They're simpler and easier to scribble by pen. For each glyph, I also tried to match some sounds (in the Transliteration column). If you have any ideas how these glyphs should be pronounced and you can justify it in some way, feel free to tell me in this post. I hope for some interesting discussion here. Maybe together we can crack this code I also wrote in the table what (in my opinion) any of these glyphs depict (I have some troubles with the 0'th one, so if anypony has some idea, please tell me). Below, I wrote some possible meanings encoded in that particular glyph. Composite words can be formed by joining these glyphs and their meanings together. I've tried some examples below: Some of them are actually there in the fragment of the book shown in the screenshot, so this may be the right track. Now how to read those words? Suppose that the Horn and Crescent glyphs represent sounds for "N" and "M" respectively (I don't know this for sure, this is just a guess, for the sake of the example). So their combination might sound like MaNa, which is really the name for magical energy in many other fantasy worlds! I wonder if the similar trick could be done with the glyphs representing Bright Magic to get the word PraNa, which is also a name for bright life-giving energy in Eastern cultures. Then we'd have "mana" and "prana" for Dark Magic and Bright Magic But this could be possible only if the Star glyph were pronounced as "Pr" sound (which is not so strange for a language of horses you know, this snorting sound horses make sometimes). What other sounds do you think of for the Star glyph to make some interesting word for Bright Magic? Maybe you have some better ideas of how those glyphs should be mapped to sounds? In the table, there are also numerical values assigned to the glyphs. For now, they're just for ordering and reference purposes (let's call them PEGASCII codes though probably UniCode would be a better name for Unicorn's code ), because I don't know anything about what number systems are used by ponies (but I have some guesses; I'll get back to this). But I tried to correlate them on some logical basis. For example, glyph number 4 is the Horse glyph, because the horse has 4 legs. I used the Horn glyph to represent 1, because it's simple, just one straight slash. It's good for tally marks & stuff like that. I used the Star glyph for number 5, because it is a 5-pointed star. The number 3 is Thunder, because it has 3 lines (but this is not necessary). I took the Crescent glyph for number 6, because I wanted it to be just after the Star glyph, but it will probably be better for number 2 (two horns of the crescent). Other glyphs are assigned quite arbitrarily. But there is some interesting pattern, that all glyphs related to Unicorns are distributed in powers of two. More on this later. Also, I wondered if it wouldn't be better to use the Tail glyph as last, and Head glyph as first, but this breaks the pattern a little bit, and the Head is less useful for number 1, because its shape is too much complicated. As to the number system used by ponies, I suspect some place value system or additive system at least, because just plain unary is too limited. And it would be obvious to notice by lots of repeating glyphs for number one. I haven't seen anything like that in any of pony books. If it's place-value system (that is, a small number of digits, reused in different positions representing greater and greater powers of the base), then it could be in base 4 instead of base 10, because ponies don't have fingers to count (with the only exception of Pinkie Pie, as usual ), but they only count their whole legs (4 of them). This is related to that "powers of two" pattern above: 1, 2, 4, 8 (one leg/horn, two legs each front or back or side, foul legs in a pony, eight legs in two ponies etc.). Also, if they were to use base 10 place value system, it could be easily spotted from the first screenshot: we should have some glyph repeated thrice in a row, representing those three zeros in "1000th year". But there isn't any. So either ponies don't use base 10, but some other base (in base 4, 1000 is 33220, but we also don't see any two subsequent pairs of glyphs there), or they use just additive system, which adds values of some glyphs together. But then, we either need many glyphs to depict a number, or we need some bigger values for the glyphs (for example, 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, 500, 1000) to write down the number 1000 used in the Transcript. And we need some way to find out which glyphs represent numbers instead of words. But such a system, on the other hand, is more for encoding meanings, like Gematria in the Jewish Kaballah system: you can then count up a value of any word to express some interesting patterns, like similar words having similar numerical values, etc. This is still an open subject, so any ideas are welcome. If you know about any other evidence of pony alphabets, please tell me about where you've found it (what episode, what timestamp). The more cryptograms the better. But for now, my only Rosetta Stone is this single book page from the first screenshot. I hope that this will start an interesting discussion about linguistics of the Ponydom
  19. If you could bring an item or specific knowledge that would have been completely foreign to the ancient world to it, what would it be? Would it make people treat you like a wizard? You also have the means to maintain and fabricate more (e.g. rubber tyres). I would bring a mountain bike.
  20. I’m planning on buying an Oculus Rift VR headset eventually and I’m not familiar with everything that it offers. At the moment, I’m concerned with one listing that has 32G of built in memory but I’m unsure how it’s used. I believe it’s supposed to be in a card, but that’s all I know. Does it go in a PC just for the games? Do I need to put games on there first before I use the card? Where is the card found? Any tips on what the memory system does would be very helpful. My laptop buy itself has little to no memory so I’d have to be completely dependent on this built in memory.
  21. Ok, folks, I need your advice. I pre-ordered Cyberpunk 2077 collector's edition to do an unboxing/review, but I don't have a camera with which to record. Any advice on video cameras (not webcams) that would be good for something like this and won't wipe my bank account? I've got till April to get one(preferably a week before April so I have time to get used to it) so, there's no rush. Thank you for your input.
  22. I'd probably read a lot more books. Maybe spend some more time with my family. I would also play and watch a lot more crappy videogames and movies without the existence of professional review websites. What about you guys? If the internet didn't exist, what do you think you'd be doing right now? Do you think your view of the world might be significantly different if the internet never existed at all?
  23. How do yall feel about windows 10? I havent read much about it and will soon but i woukd like some opinions of what other tech ponies and non tech ponies think. How do yiu think elderly people will feel about it? I have grandparents askibg me and want more opinions before i give a statement
