i think i upgraded unnecessarily

had a egva gt740 SC 4gb ddr3 same as pic

it got hot during simple games so i assumed it was not very good

i decided to upgrade to a 1050 so i started to "burn" my old card by playing hard on high settings

i found that after a few runs of 99 C it kinda got much much better

now i am playing decently in good resolution and decent details, and the card is not heating up anymore

i think i upgraded unnecessarily when checking the specs, the gt740 isnt that far of the 1050

i think mine needed a hot break in and i just never pushed it hard, now i replaced it and it just giving its best

seriously i always thought it was a piece of shit, just now its gaining a new life
guess the point is, would you kill yourself if i replaced your current cart with this said 740 , is it unuseable?

and i used to think yes, now i am thinking i was just an idiot who didnt set up the games properly
bunk thermal paste or bad contact with the heatsink.
i am going to replace it, dont know why didnt i think of that either

>Ryzen processors using Zen+ will see an approximate performance boost of about 10%

Ryzen 1700 Single Thread Rating: 1774
Ryzen 1800x Single Thread Rating: 1965
Ryzen 2700 Single Thread Rating (approx): 1951

Throw in improved memory latency, memory compatibility and IPC, that effectively makes the upcoming 2700 an 1800x according to PassMark. Have there been any other giant leaps in performance like this in CPUs recently? Also, comfy AMD thread (Zen appreciation, etc).

where did it all go so wrong? AMD has literally abandoned 2018 for consumer GPUs, no 12nm GPUs and the only 7nm GPU is for Deep Learning/AI shit they can sell for high margins, the second Nvidia releases their new architecture there will be literally no reason to buy Polaris or Vega GPUs for desktop

Dunno, but i'd wager its W10's fault and not winamp's. Probably loading all the microsoft botnet tools and they cant figure out how to interface with llama whipping software.
checked trips, nice

>there's audacious (also on windows) which can switch to a winamp 2 gui and you can even use winamp 2 skins on it. the problem is it doesn't offer a library

thanks, I hadn't heard of that before actually. I don't use the libary function anyway, as long as I can use muh skins I'll be ok

If you have "lost your password" and would swear you didn't change it, you have been using for months or years, and suddenly it is not working, you got hacked mate.

Do not pain, as long as you don't dual boot, you can tell the hackers to GTFO:
All you need to do is to locate the vmlinuz call in the GRUB entry (maintain the SHIFT key if it doesn't appear automatically), press e to edit the main Linux Kernel linux (the first by default), and simply change the line that says:
linux /boot/vmlinuz-.....(letters and numbers) ro quiet splash
linux /boot/vmlinuz-.....(letters and numbers) rw init=/bin/bash

press Ctrl+X or F10.

Now you should have a bash shell, just in case, if you aren't root yet, just do:
su -
and now write "passwd". Write your password twice, then reboot.

>rw init=/bin/bash
this is a well documented "tip" on how to get root when you have physical accesss to the computer.

However, most if not all of us, encrypt the partition so the data is safe or lost, depending on how much you forgot your password.

>Lyor Cohen, YouTube's global head of music, says the company is trying to "frustrate" free YouTube users to that they're subsequently "seduced" into paying for a monthly subscription. YouTube's unnamed subscription service is described as a "necessary conterweight" to Apple Music and Spotify. "You're not going to be happy after you are jamming to Stairway to Heaven and you get an ad right after that," said Cohen.

Will this be a successful strategy? Will you subscribe? Or will this be the first salvo in a new round of anti anti anti adblock wars, because surely, YouTube knows the first response by the users will be to try and block the ads. Will the technology of freedom be able to do battle with the Tube of You?

What's an ad?

>Will this be a successful strategy? Will you subscribe?

Will the technology of freedom be able to do battle with the Tube of You?
There are still no anti-anti-anti-adblock wars in Youtube's back end that just serves the video to the website, and the website puts up its defences. Surely, intercepting the video from behind will completely circumvent any blocking attempts? Judging by my screenshot, the strategy works nicely.

use hooktube: bypass blocks and age restrictions, and download Vevo videos
Wtf just use adblock you stupid nigger
Maybe Youtube needs to make an application, something similar to Spotify might work.
>YouTube Increasing Ads Between Music Videos So More Users Pay for Upcoming Streaming Service

No, it sounds more like a RIAA salvo, desperate for more money, because we fucking block ads and Google's not going to ban us, or VPN users who get stuck on Spotify's region locking. In either case, business as usual.

This, that probably looks really good at that resolution on a 6" screen. It's a lot harder for me to pick out out problems with that image when I'm standing 4 1/2 feet from my computer monitor (at which point the angular resolution is similar).

Why don't they make phones with plastic screens and ship them with 1-2 hard glass screen protectors? That way when you drop the phone it doesn't shatter, only the glass does and you just replace it, would also stop scratches, they could add a lip to the phone so it fits flush

this is why i have my note 4 in a case with a second replacement front glass panel ontop of the regular one. the case holds it in place perfectly, i don't even notice it anymore. i work in a garage and i've broken 3 10$ faceplates but never the one adhered to my lcd

these ones specifically. basically just a super thick screen protector. touch and s pen work fine through it

key.br is the best resource I've found for typing speed. It learns based off of the way you type instead of just a generic practice set so you get to work on the keys and patterns you struggle with.

my problem isn't that. it's that i learned incorrectly and my right pinky almost never gets used, so I'm trying to relearn again to use the pinky. my right middle and ring finger does too much work and move around way to much, which is probably causing most of the slowdown (as well as inaccuracies for symbol presses). the keybr one looks like something ill do after i fix my current typing issues.

okay actually looking at it a bit more it's probably not even that useful for people over 70 WPM. it improves accuracy but not speed. either ways ill start off with mavis beacon again then probably move to some sites that are specifically for code typing.
