Im moving away from google any suggestions
Make sure to buy some rope and stream your suicide on Youtube.
You need me motherfucker, you are nothing without me. Have fun with your open sores gay shit crashing 1 million times a second.
I have my GPU on "Prefer maximum performance" globally, and with GPU acceleration in the browser, it fucks my temps over just when browsing normal websites, and also steals massive GPU RAM if the browser is running while playing games -- sometimes leading to heat issues and crashes...
Turned off GPU acceleration today and the chip is now much cooler and less strained on a daily basis, giving better performance in games.
How much does it actually help browsing? Tried Twitch & Youtube and saw no noticeable difference.
It makes a massive performance difference in anything actually demanding but it doesn't really matter for day to day browsing.
Turn off prefer maximum performance makes much more sense but do what you want.
Also even at maximum performance your GPU shouldn't be overheating and fucking up unless you OC'd it.
>It makes a massive performance
Does it though? I read this piece from 2014 and it concludes that it might not be as consequential as you would think: https://helgeklein.com/blog/2014/12/impact-gpu-acceleration-browser-cpu-usage/
Sometimes it apparently even strains the CPU because it has issues sharing data with the GPU... Admittedly they try it with a shit tier integrated card but still.
What are the odds of my Google account being hacked. My password database (Keepass) is uploaded so I can easily access it on my different devices. I have a paranoia that it will get hacked and by extension my life made increasingly difficult. Please consolidate me.
Yeah I think I'm going to do the same because mine hasn't changed in a while. The next dilemma is deciding a new password. I get mixed responses her about what method to use in choosing a new password.
Consumer grade device when?
>transistors squeezed onto memory chips
Solar energy, pros, cons, facts and debate
Still no mass produced panels with efficiency 30% or higher
Silicon based panels create horrendous environment poisoning waste
Only few places have 5-6 hours of peak sunlight per day
Only a few places have seasonal stability for year round peak sunlight during the day
There is no real solution for delivering power on demand for large scale solar farms
Silicon based panels still degrade and steadily lose efficiency
Hey guys I've been running a Z170 FTW for quit a while now and 99% of the startups are completely fine but every once in a great while the bios chip fucks up and I have the use the reset button, does anyone else have this problem?
I have this occasionally with my Gigabyte Z170-UD3. Looks like it gets stuck in a boot loop, then it eventually restarts on its own and boots up fine. A few times I've had to manually shut it down and restart it though.
Post your current laptop family
Left - 15in Lenovo ideapad 305 with Win10 for video games
Right - 15in rMBP from work with OS X El Capitan for Python+Django programming at work
Middle - 11in Chromebook with Crouton for Ubuntu 12 for personal general purpose programming (mostly C+SDL2, or Python+Django)
So I am currently going to get an HP chromebook 11 when my college starts, just wondering if there is anything equivalent to the system32 folder that many people have in their pc's?
I know there's some sort of equivalent of a terminal and it's based off of Linux, so you could probablyrm -rf /
I remember seeing a much more subtle version of that using numbers, so try that for fooling the more technically adept.
More like Fractured Design. Fucking hell... I'm mad.
Since upgrading to Windows 10, my iPhone won't connect to iTunes on PC. Now, Windows is offering me to switch to OneDrive - actually this is the only option it is offering me to transfer my photos to computer.
Am I paranoid for not wanting to?
Does /g/ know anything about massage recliners?
I think I want one but I don't even know where to start. All the reviews on google are skeezy as fuck and all the sites selling them are even sleazier.
Please help I know literally fucking nothing about cameras.
My mom wants a point-and-shoot that's waterproof or at least water resistant, and pretty tough. She's no photographer or tech person - can't even give her a smartphone - so won't be messing with any settings.
What are models to look at? Don't want to spend more than necessary. I don't suppose /CSG/ is any help with still cameras
>tfw fell for ECC RAM meme
>tfw even linear writes and reads are extremely slow
/g/ told me I could build my home workstation with cheap old xeons and ECC rams. apparently this is the cost.
Hey /g/, where's a good place to start if you want to learn how electronics,(more specifically computers, phones and so on) really work?
I just want to understand the basics of software and hardware, how operative systems work, understanding how a motherboard works etc. Any recommended books, educational websites?
I'm a dumbass, don't shoot me.
I didn't really get interested in that facet of it until I took a some digital logic and microprocessors courses with assembly/C at university. Wish I had some better suggestions.
Whatever people give you, I found it was pretty fun playing with emulators of early computers like the DEC PDP-8 that took you really up close and personal to the bare metal in a more interactive way.
There's also tons of simple real hardware you can mess around with to show you the basics of how a CPU really works, I've wanted to play with this one:

Wikipedia is one of the best resources, honestly.
I just want to buy a FUCKING AIB 480 or 1070 for the GOD DAMN MSRP
How hard is it? WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON WITH GPU MANUFACTURERS?
