  1. 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.
  2. 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?
  3. Considering how Windows XP support's demise is just around the corner ( April 8th ), what are your plans? me myself, I've gone Linux, and haven't really looked back ( in fact my newly installed win7 install is ticking me off. lol ).
  4. So, has anyone heard of this app? If you don’t know what Randonautica is, it is a app for your phone that gives you randomized coordinates depending on what it is you’re searching for. I first heard of it from the scary videos on Nuke’s Top 5. I tried it once, but it didn’t really take me anywhere interesting. If you tried it before, what were you looking for and what did you find? P.S. Only explore during the day and if you can, bring a friend. Thoughts?
  5. I've had a Samsung Galaxy S4 mini for about three years and have finally bought a new phone I bought a Doogee F5. It seems to have pretty good reviews on Amazon and Youtube and it's a decent price
  6. I was 9years old when I got my first pc. the config was amd k5 133, 8mb ram, 14" monitor, 1gb hdd, cd-rom, 1mb gfx,..
  7. I have the iPhone 6 atm, but it's got a few issues. I got it as a hand-me-down from my mom. The battery has issues, I think. It also has audio problems because the upper speaker is cracked and broken. Plus, it drops service every so often without the use of wifi. :c I'm going to get my next upgrade soon and get the iPhone 7, which I don't think I have a choice because of my current phone's issues. So, what is your current smartphone? :O
  8. Okay so I "upgraded" to Windows 10 from 8.1 last minute just before this coming end of 2015. Now I'm not sure if I made the wrong choice. First of all all my Chrome bookmarks are gone since I didn't back it up (I didn't know they will disappear) and now I feel my internet browser load slower than usual. I suppose I can switch back to 8.1 but that means I can't go back to Windows 10. I mean I'm on a fairly new computer and I don't want to mess it up anyhow. What do you think?
  9. I made this post using a blackberry bold 9650 from 2010. So have any of you ever posted from a device older than mlp forums (nov. 2011)
  10. What is your favorite font? I like Helvetica because of its simplicity and how easy it is to read
  11. Ok, so I'm updating to Windows 10 from Windows 7 SP1. The upgrade went smoothly after I finally downloaded the windows media creation tool found here; The upgrade took a while and then Windows was slow after the install. If youopen up the Windows Store app (Windows logo on a bag icon in the task bar), you'll see it's still doing a bunch of stuff in the background. Ok, no problem, until I noticed a lot of the apps that it was downloading were failing. I figured it maybe needed another reboot, so I rebooted and found problem number one. When you upgrade to windows 10, the default login will be your windows live login, not the computer login you were using on windows 7. After digging through LastPass on my phone, I found my live login and got back into my machine. You will be given the option for logging in with your live id or a local account. Cool, no problem. I checked on the apps that Windows Store was having problems installing...still failing. A quick lookup of the error code pointed to a windows activation error. So I went to the settings app, Update & Security, Activation and click on the Activate button. 'Windows can't activate. Try again later. F-en great. After digging, I found a way to activate via phone. Here's the steps; Hold the windows button and push 'R' to get the run box. enter 'slui.exe 4' without the quotes and you'll be given a window with a phone number and a bunch of numbers. Calling that number gets you to an automated system where you enter all of these numbers to activate. It didn't work for me, so I was transferred to a call center (probably in india) , where the person explained to me that I would need to reinstall Windows 7 and upgrade.....bulllllllshit! I advised the lady with the indian accent, who was obviously reading from a script, that I had used the windows upgrade tool that microsoft had provided for performing the upgrade. After some silence from her, and hearing her talking to someone in the background, she told me she would transfer me to someone who could help. When I got to this new department, the useful automated announcement told me that I had at least a 20 minute hold time. Right now I'm still listening to that crappy microsoft jazztastic hold music. This must be where musicians go to die. More after I've escaped from this technological hell. ~update!~ After finally getting to someone else, they told me that the activation servers were completely overloaded and to keep trying. Seems like Microsoft underestimated how much bandwidth they would need for this...figures. Hurry up and wait.
  12. This is... Quite interesting. Amazing what technology can do now eh? Anyways thought this was interesting enough for a thread. Thoughts?
  13. What volume do you keep your system volume at? Its basically the volume that controls stuff like the click sound when you click on a phone keyboard. I always have it muted but when I type my phone vibrates for a fraction of a second after every key. I just find sounds like that annoying
  14. What do you consider the signs that it's time to get a new computer? And how long should you keep your computer before buying a new one?
  15. Do you, have you or are you planning on using a VPN service? I've been using FrootVPN for a while, I first got it cause it was a Swedish service and I wanted to try it out. Lately I've been getting slower speeds and there hasn't been much I could do about it so I'm looking into getting another one. At first I mainly used it while downloading torrents but nowaday I don't really torrent stuff anymore but DDoS attacks on multiplayer games has become an issue instead so I need something with more reliable servers.
  16. There are hidden advanced setting options on phones that aren't too useful to the average user No, I don't think ill really need to enable them right now. And if someone were to get into my phone I wouldn't want that feature pre-enabled so they can destroy my phone from the inside. You need to put in a pin to enable.
  17. The most likes i've ever gotten currently is currently 2.2K on Helluva Boss's Oh Millie music video, "When two literally hellish imps have a stronger marriage than most people in real life."
  18. So in the past two years I've noticed Disney seems to be on a roll with a modern revolution. Instead of coming up with new fascinating, original ideas, they have decided to revive old iconic classics and remake them in live-action format, with voice casts featuring new and old members (given how some older ones have died and child voice actors are now adults with deeper voices). Some will stick stitch-by-stitch to the original movie's storyline, while others will be spinoffs or reboots centered around one character. Honestly I'm not sure how to feel about this. Given the incredible new technologies that have come into the world of filmmaking, the idea of all those simple hand-drawn 2D cartoon characters being reimagined in realistic 3D seemed very exciting for both Disney and their fans - well, some of them. Others are more on the lines of "Why bother with stories of old? Yeah they were amazing then, why try to make them more amazing now? Like, what's the point? People still watch 80s and 90s movies in 2018 and will continue to do so!" What do you guys think? Is this Reboot Revolution the right way to go for Disney? (The teaser trailer for Dumbo was briefly #2 Trending on YouTube earlier this week) Here are some of the movies that will be revived in live-action: Dumbo (following the original storyline, with some possible twists) A sequel to the 2016 The Jungle Book movie A sequel to the 2014 Maleficent movie Peter Pan (following the original storyline) Tinkerbell (her backstory) The Lion King (following the original storyline) Aladdin (following the original storyline) Cruella (villain backstory/childhood) The Little Mermaid (info is very loose - i.e. voice actors saying that they'd like to play certain characters)
  19. now my videos on my channel have potential but editing them off of Windows Live Movie Maker isn't helping not to mention WLMM has a lack in some features I would find helpful so does anyone know any free Editing softwares a gamer like me could use to improve their videos
  20. In this ongoing world of technological advancements, many are seeking to add more convenience to their lives, and one of these many conveniences is the combination of the wireless headphone set and the earbud headphone set. This marriage of the two items has resulted in some mixed results as the wireless earbuds. Perhaps the most famous or infamous of these two being Apple's "Airpods". Which controversially are perhaps some of the worst wireless earbuds on the market price, quality and environment wise, however people still flock to this convenience. What is your stance on this trend? Will the Wireless earbud take over, or will it fall flat? The positives of Wireless Earbuds: Small, good for working out. Wireless charging cases, meaning exceptional battery life (Outside of Apple's airpods which apparently degrade in battery quality quickly) No cords means the most prominent problem with earbuds breaking does not exist. (often times, they break solely because the cable is damaged) The negatives: Very expensive. While Apple's are overpriced starting at $140 USD, you can actually find alternatives for as low as $50, but this is still a fair significant margin higher than standard wired earbuds. Difficult to repair. Easy to lose.
  21. I do because it's supposed to protect ur eyes. I also have a blue light filter on my prescription glasses
  22. So, I don't have very much experience with building PCs. The most I have done is installed a new PSU and a GPU. The PC I currently have is about 8 years old. It's an old pre-built HP PC. The exact model is a p7-1299c. I was wondering whether it would be possible to use the same case and install a new motherboard and CPU in it. The reason I want to upgrade it is because I really want to be able to play VRChat (Not in VR Mode mind you, just in desktop mode). I also don't want to spend too much money in doing so(I'm poor...). Can any one help me? Or have any advice to give?
  23. For some reason, all day today, certain sites i visit on the regular (Furaffinity, Derpibooru even Equestria Daily and TVTropes) i've had to do a CAPTCHA before i could access the site. These sites have never used this before,
  24. I'm pretty good at troubleshooting electronics and replacing bad components on circuit boards, except the tiny surface mount stuff. A few years ago, I had to replace the electrolytic capacitors on my model 1 Sega CD. It would power on, but only the sound effects could be heard. The CD audio was dead. Bad leaky caps on the audio board were the culprit. I replaced them with new ones, and that restored the sound. The repair was actually pretty easy. I've also replaced the game save batteries in my SNES games. There's even a way to replace it without losing your save files. Just use an extra battery with wire leads and solder them to the correct traces on the board to maintain power. Replace the old one and remove the extra battery when finished. A lot of vintage gaming consoles are still in use and still have the original capacitors and such. As they age, these components will fail and have to be replaced. So, anypony else on here maintain and repair their own video game consoles? If so, what repairs have you had to perform?
