To be honest, I did as well but stopped once the PCs at school stopped reading my cheap (= no longer in Japan produced) Verbatim disks and were upgraded to Windows 2000, which made my first 128 MB USB stick infinitely more useful.

>discover mpv, too autistic to use
>installs 3rd party renderer
hey at least madvr is just running a batch file and selecting it in the option. mpv involves some command typing shit which is too bigbrained for a grug like me
Is it possible to run the subtitle and osc (both using ass) at a specific framerate? e.g Display Hz.

When using vs-mvtools it has the awesome side effect of making the entire osc/sub rendering run at whatever framerate you interpolate to which looks so much better, especially with kfx subs.

I think that setting:


Would effectively run the subs at about 72 fps, but I don't see any way to do the same with the OSC.
you don't need command line to use mpv...
you have to edit a text file to configure it tho but everyone can do it

The only thing I sweep up is my own hair and normal floor vacuums get completely tangled when they suck up my hair, this weak ass toy vacuum is for sweeping up cheerios, not hair.
I get that certain technologies make life easier like washing machines but how lazy do you have to be to not want a little bit of exercise from vacuuming a room
Not true. I'd say it's even better than a vacuum for hair because it can be easily disassembled. First time I ran mine it got all my hair and I was surprised how much there was. Because of it's height it can get under furniture and cabinets so it caught toooons of shit that I could never reach.

Not lazy; I can do other things whle Genie cleans up the floor in my place. Like go for a walk, do some gardening, go shopping.

>There's a reason many of the original x11/xorg developers moved to wayland.
Not the original developers but the RedHat employees who grabbed the project by overthrowing the original developers. What is freedesktop after all?
> stopped reading there
nice job retard

> knowing (((much))) of x11 is ackhtually less LoC than wayland
maybe if you weren't deadset on your ways you would realize that my complaint isn't the numbe of lines of code, which are often arbitrary and don't say much about a program besides how "big" it is. If you cared to listen, you would realize my complaint is with what xorg tries to do. It isn't just a display manager, its so much more than is should ever need to be, and tries to handle more than it should. Why the fuck does a display server also have a print server emedded in it? Why is it also a binary interpreter? WTF?!?!? Doesn't help that xorg consumes more ram on the systems I've run it on than wayland has, even when running xwayland (which is NOT an xorg wrapper). Furthermore, I don't want my display server to rerender the entire fucking screen because it has no concept of window isolation. Now fuck off, I came looking for a terminal emulator, not xorg worshipping tards that can't fathom why someone would want to use a "not ""ready"" " display protocol over what amounts to a botched attempt at one.
>claims lines of text are not bloat
>proceeds to write a lot of bloat
And by the way, the thing about xorg doing feature creep happened AFTER the RedHat employees started to creep into the project.

Is a by the book case of sabotage.
Not that anon, but jesus christ is this real? Is another project going to be ruined by redhat?
It's like nowhere is safe from them. I'm using wayland right now, but if this is true then I might have to consider switching back to xorg.
I'm seriously fucking sick of redhat developers. You could be drowning in a river and a redhat developer could lift his pinky finger to save you and he won't do it. He'll just ignore your cries as "not a bug" (also the redhat dev was probably the one who threw you in the river too).
>Is another project going to be ruined by redhat?
See >>73897117
I was planning to test alternative X implementations myself (xorg is not the only one, surprise surprise) because I know where this is going.

Is like everything is pushed on the wrong direction and we go like sheep herded by RedHat. Well, not this time, and not me.

>Logo LED
I didn't know the TUF had any LED or RGB. If it does, all the shit is controllable via BIOS.
I owned that exact Dell monitor. At a distance of 1.5' I could see the lines/pixels/whatever you want to call it.

I might be Biased because I have a 23.8" 1440p panel now, but when I had that Dell 27" 1080p one, it bothered the shit outta me. Pic related is what PC partpicker recommends for 1080p, IPS, freesync monitors
I'd also suggest getting a different NVMe than one with QLC nand if that's going to be your main OS drive
with x470 you just have to confirm that the board is one with the updated bios, if you're too lazy to do that then get x570
I'm not recommending the lian li at all, in fact the rest of the review shows how bad it's thermals are. That video is to show how overpriced the meshify c is.
X470 will need a bios update, just like B450
guess Im gonna get the AOC I dont really care about color reproduction so much

So basically she has a hp pavilion 15t x7p44av laptop and wants to add an SSD to it. I've read through the user manuals https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-pavilion-15-bc200-notebook-pc/13810158/model/13823479/manuals but I have no clue what to look for or what to read to even see if there's an open slot for another SSD.

What part of these manuals do I check to even see if it has an open slot? Would any SSD work? She just wants an SSD to install more games on, as the current one in the laptop is only 128g which is taken up by just a few games and Windows 10.
Give her the D. She wants it.

Is there any way of salvaging either OS? Had Windows/Debian dual boot.
LiveCD, chroot into your Debian system and reinstall grub?

That's a blanket solution for most things

alright thanks. Now I need to learn the diffrence between mono vs stereo audio
How do you tell is something is accessing your drive on windows 7? I have this external hard drive that I mount through VeraCrypt and when I'm done with it I normally dismount the drive through VeraCrypt(don't know if people just forcefully unplug their drive without telling it to dismount but whatever) but these past few days VeraCrypt keeps telling me something is still running on that drive and I have to force it to dismount and waiting it out doesn't seem to do anything. The task manager and the resource monitor is useless since I can't see what's stopping or starting when I mount/dismount the drive. Basically as soon as I mount the drive something is running.
Simplified & in the context of two speakers
Mono, left sounds the same as right
Stereo, left can sound different from right

If the content you want to transfer was recorded in Mono then you only having the white cable doesn't matter at all since the audio track produced on the other channel would be exactly the same

If the content is stereo however you'll lose out stuff that actually matters

Also does your device not have a regular 3.5 audio jack?
You could just use the composite video out (yellow cable) and record audio separately through the 3.5 jack

Or just record the thing twice by plugging the white cable in different holes then merge the left and right audio channels in post.

Just dropped an external HD off a three foot tall table. It fell and hit the ground. It was not plugged in or on when dropped though.

It was a Seagate made in 2011, and was not a Solid State Drive.

I can't turn it on or access it because the power cable/dock broke a few months ago. What are the odds that it's fucked? Should I just consider it lost? Anyone else have such a story but with a good outcome?
Actually, more like a four foot tall table. If it's any good news, nothing is rattling or making noise when I lightly shake it.
Odds are 50/50. It's either fucked or not.
