I had a 19" Samsung monitor on my old computer (4:3) and it could pull off 85Hz. I did notice the difference when I switched to this laptop that is fixed at 60Hz. I much prefer 85Hz, it seems so much steadier. Even if I can't tell the individual frames apart (thankfully) 60Hz feels kind of flickery.

I looked at your thing.

I wholeheartedly agree.

3D printers look like they'd be fun to have, but the truth is I can't think of a single use to justify the expense.

Very often mappers focus on making a good looking map without really having a plan for a good map. I'm probably guilty of it too.

Hi! I don't remember you to be honest, but welcome back anyway!

That is exactly the reason to keep them around. And that they don't get poorly-thought forced software updates that make them a worse product.

I did get the (almost forced) update to Android 5.1.1 a few hours after getting the update to 4.4.4, after which somehow word prediction got worse.

Strider wins.

If that was mine, I'd have changed it even if I wasn't into the smart features, if only because it's held together with sticky tape. See, Captain? Mine wasn't so bad.

I'd be sticking with this type of phone but sadly I have already been absorbed into convenient things like group chats in WhatsApp and other equally convenient features. But they're better.

I might look around!

As for the caps, I don't mind, it works for me.

Fun facts about mobile internet:

The HSPA+ standard has a nominal data transfer speed of 21mbps. My old phone had a max speed of 7mbps. I used to think I was missing out until I found out my carrier caps 3G at 1mbps anyway. Now it makes sense how my friend in the US can do video calls on Skype through 3G and I can barely get a single page to load.

The LTE standard has a nominal data transfer speed of 150mbps. I thought that was pretty fancy, until I found out my carrier caps 4G at 5mbps. That's right, a quarter of 3G speed in other regions.

I can't come up with a single reason to do this. Isn't it better for everyone to leave data rates uncapped? Transactions finish faster, which causes less network congestion, which in turn results in a better service for everybody. I guess not understanding it is probably the reason I wouldn't be a good businessman.

Glad I only wanted 4G as an extra lane to get around network congestion, otherwise I'd probably be really pissed.

Video review? This already is a review. :P

To be perfectly honest, I was not expecting this. I thought it would be more of your usual nonsense. I actually liked it.

If your camera happens to be a Canon-brand point and shoot, you might want to try chdk. There might be others for other brands but I only know of that one.

I'm actually looking forward to the next episode.

Trippy, low FPS. Good concept.

Happy birthday Archiman! Now you have one year per each hour of the day. Maybe some interesting calculation could be extracted from that but I can't be arsed at this time of the night.

I believe it comes with 4.4, hope they update it to 6.0 soon. And apparently it has a better battery usage. Will update findings as soon as I have it.

Not yet, but since I found out I can buy it, I'm getting this one. Was going to update when I actually had it in my hand, which will be in a few days.

"Life is what happens to you while you're trying to make plans" or something like that.

Don't stress yourself, I had something similar happen to me. I worked a whole year and saved up a lot of money that was very useful later on. Then I started again and things went well. I can't complain, I made some good friends that I wouldn't have come across if I had done things on schedule.

Amazing! Free shipping to Antarctica! I might consider that.

I probably won't be getting it though, it will definitely get a very high imports fee that I won't like at all.

Disco Stu does not reveal his secret location.

Consider me in Antarctica.

Looks pretty snazzy, but they don't have it where I'm buying and I surely can't afford to have it shipped overseas.

Neither is listed in the cyanogen site, so I can't do much about that for now. Also I've had bad experiences with LG in the past. Don't know anything about Nexus though.

Get 2 computers with W10. Install pirated games in the first, install emulators in the second. Wait and see.

Popular destination with Brits.

I've only been on the Canary Islands for a grand total of about 4 hours. It was a refuelling stop for the plane :P

Ha! I think I haven't done any either. Maybe I will.

For some reason my computer has a crapload of fonts, but they all look pretty much the same. I don't know where they came from. Aside from all the ISO* that come with AutoCAD, those ARE all the same.

So he actually did that shot in the end.

Waiiit a minute. Yeah... I'm pretty sure I've met that girl. That must be it. Can I have her number so I can check?

Commented 3 years ago2015-07-31 20:03:43 UTC in journal: #8584 Comment #62722
Yes Stojke, I am completely stupid and agreed to the download without knowing.

Now that he's out of here, for everyone else, I did not. I'm completely sure I never once agreed to anything, and all this did indeed happen without asking or telling me. Then I was told I was supposed to "opt out" rather than opt in, which would kind of explain it. Still doesn't explain why I didn't see any option to do that anywhere. Everything looked too opt-in.

When I turned on my computer today it BSOD'd on me on boot (I think it was the first BSOD since I got this computer three years ago) and I feared it was going to boot to W10. Thankfully it didn't and I hope it was just a coincidence.
