What's the best way to control multiple workstations with a single set of peripherals?

I'd prefer a mechanical solution if possible like a 3 position switch etc.

Can somebody help me out and at least point me in the right direction?

are you really this retarded anon
I assume you're being honest with your question, OP. I'm nice that way. You don't have many options.

1. PS/2 and VGA. Hope you have VGA. And PS/2.
2. USB and VGA. Hope you have VGA.
3. Spend as much money as you have, there's a chunk of Chink hardware that will do it. More or less.

Does anyone has experience with UPS and their switch to batteries times?

I am choosing between CyberPower one and APC.
CyberPower is cheaper and has faster switch to batteries time (like 4 ms if not mistaken) but I will not be able to get new batteries for it in my country.
APC one is more expensive, I can get extra bateries, but with much slower switch time (~12ms I think).
Now my PSU has hold on time of around 20ms so APC will be fast enough. But how does external hdds react to such slow switch times? Anyone has any idea? ANYONE?

Also general UPS discussion.

The real question is. How much to spend on it if all you're going to use it on is your PC
the only thing you get from spending more is longer runtime
What about activation time
Not a problem unless you buy absolute chinkshit, but at that point you'd be more worried about housefires.

Yah, that comment doesn't explicitly mention external hdds. And since (from what I have read online) there are cases where (cheap)PSUs has not long enough hold on times for APC to switch in time I am afraid cheap hdd power briks will have even shorter hold on times.

Switch times are not irrelevant. read my ansver to >>66809131

>intel sells a power hungry chip

I don't like Intel, but come on. The only way they could possibly be at fault here is if they falsely advertised the heat output and even then Apple should have tested it when they were coming up with the design. If I stick a desktop i9 in a laptop and it overheats is that Intel's fault too, or is the fact that it's a desktop part enough to suggest I was an idiot for using it in that way? Where do you draw the line?

Anyone able to help diagnose my PC? I tried installing a new HDD, set it up, connected ATA and power and no start up. Removed said harddrive, checked all connections still no start up. Tested the PSU with paperclip jumper, PSU is fine. I'm really hoping i didnt static discharge it (no anti static strap) but i touched PSU 30 secs every time working on it. Set up is
-Asus Maximus III Extreme Mobo
-Intel i7 870
-GTX 1050Ti
-6Gb 1333mhz RAM
-2tb harddrive space prior
-Generic Rocketfish CPU cooler
-Antec Dark fleet case

Any helps appreciated thanks

You can tell someone has no idea what they're doing when before they do literally anything else in terms of trouble shooting, they test their PSU with a paperclip like they read on techcrunch. Also your 24pin power connector isnt plugged in. youtube video you watched didnt include that?

It's not about the tech they're making, it's about their potential for growth.

Facebook's user base grows as the number of people online grows, and global access to the internet is skyrocketing. Their ability to monetize users increases the more they have. They own the social media platform your grandma uses to like recipes, and the one your cousin uses to share pictures of the sunset with a filter over them. The number of people joining this culture is only growing.

Apple creates highly desirable consumer devices, and there is a massively growing consumer class in China and other developing countries that want luxury goods like iPhones.

Amazon is cornering a virtual monopoly on online retail, comprising 49% of the US retail market. You might think they don't have much more room to grow then, but consider this - online commerce only accounts for about a tenth of all retail spending in the US. As brick and mortar dies, Amazon ascends, and this isn't even considering international marketplaces.

Netflix is similar to Apple, they deliver a product that middle class consumers want, and the global middle class is booming, so they have massive growth potential overseas.

Google is essentially the gateway to the internet for 99% of people and their advertising business accounts for almost 40% of all online ad spending in the US. (Facebook isn't far behind!) They also run the site everyone uses to watch videos, and about a billion other things. The more people who engage with the internet, the more money they have to make.

This is all a story about the growing global middle class and their access to internet. That, coupled with a friendly regulatory environment that doesn't know the meaning of the word "trust", is what's bringing these companies unprecedented growth.

Good analysis but if you've paid any attention to what you're saying, Microsoft will continue selling licenses etc to all those developing countries that are now opening their own industries
Also, it seems that they (along with almost everyone else in that field) are shifting to AI so they can conquer an extremely new market with shitloads of potential

Depends on the language. In C++, it is an operator that allocates an object on the heap and returns a pointer to it.
In C# and Java, it is used the same 'creating an object' with a slight difference in semantics 'invoking a constructor' is what new does in these languages.
Swift afaik doesn't require new but it gets confusing sometimes because it looks like a normal function call but it is still decent compared to the number of ways you can initialize objects and arrays in C++.
My point is that "new" could very well be infered when you call a constructor. But then
>sometimes because it looks like a normal function
Assuming all classes start with upper case, it's not confunsing, but you're right, if some retard don't follow any convention to differentiate functions from classes, "new" would help making it more legible.
>decades old windows/shit theme
>shit design
Fuck it I am going to waste some time rewriting your crap in wpf.
If it's c++ (which I guess it isn't since you would then use MyClass *object = new MyClass()) then this will also place the object on the heap instead of the stack.

arma 3 is always that one exception of a game which rapes the cpu more than it looks like it should. the visuals aren't even all that compared to some other games but it really hammers the cpu. luckily i gave up with arma (arma 2) back when dayz mod died and i have no interest in going back to it. everything else i play runs silky smooth on this nearly 5 year old processor.

i'm looking forward to playing upcoming games like bf5, mhw, sekiro, hitman 2, metro exodus, dmc 5, gears 5 etc on it. i think it'll last me till the end of 2019.
>OC'd 8600k beats 8700 in games though
They used to say the same thing about 2500k vs 2600, and 3690k vs 3770.
Arma's problem is that it's very simulation-intensive, yeah. My 1080 could run laps around it but my 4690 couldn't crunch the game logic fast enough. It's also essentially not multithreaded which has fucked over a number of AMD-buying friends in the past.
Overall A3 didn't run too badly on my old CPU but it really chugged whenever any kind of action was happening. Better than on my old 2xxx or whatever i5 dual core before it, that's for damn sure. Was a goddamn slideshow on that.
