Guess WHAT this is, and WHERE it is. Answers below first pic.
It's a bug, and it's INSIDE my friggen monitor. F-me. I just went from a pixel perfect 43" monitor to a "10 dead pixel" spot.
So I was just surfing the web and saw a tiny bug/gnat moving on my monitor and attempted to wipe...
MUCH THANKS in advance for reading this long mess of a post.
I F'ed up. Got UN-F'ed. Error happened. Error went away. Discovered something new. Confused as usual. Questions.
I goofed again. So it's another pain-in-the-ass, frustrating, confusing night. I have two "users"...
Merry Christmas 2019 and Happy New Year 2020.
I'm taking mom over to my Niece's house for an early, 10-11 A.M. Christmas Brunch. What, if anything, is everybody else doing?
Again, Merry Christmas 2019 and Happy New Year 2020.
First of all: 1) I'm no audiophile; 2) my DAP and headphones don't warrant any "quality" EAC ripping; and 3) I'm lazy and just need a basic CD-to-.MP3 rip. So I'm just using FreeRIP with everything default. I came across a CD that FreeRIP doesn't automagically obtain the track names/metadata...
I've never been on a forum with a search function that wasn't utter shit.
SD posted a while back about a nice portable music player. I think he said it shipped from China as it wasn't available in the U.S. yet? I wanted to re-read his post as I'm looking for such a...
My main email account had a really simple password. Something like: "xxabc1234." Seriously that simple. Since 2009. And for three years before that it was "xxabc123." Never any issues, but I figured it was time for a change. So I decided to change the passwords and recovery options on all...
Via canonrumers... Photokina 2019 scheduled for May has been cancelled, show to return annually May 2020.

I was looking for something and in the back of a closet I found a really old, no, ancient laptop. An AST Research Ascentia 900n to be exact. Still powers up and boots into Windows 95. It was WAY outdated when I used it at uni to type up papers during 1998-2000. Keyboard is still better than...
I'm starting a new thread for "Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Cameras" (MILC) and Lenses as I didn't see a thread on this subject.
Interesting story at PetaPixel titled, "Nikon Patents 2 Full Frame Mirrorless Lenses: 52mm f/0.9 and 36mm f/1.2" Very interesting.

Anybody planning a trip for this event?
Some of you guys are fairly close and a days drive will get you there, I'd have to fly. The next, and realistically last, event for a good percentage of us here is 2024.
27" 8k (7680x4320) @ 120 Hz monitor from IGZO. Link.
Quote from article ... "8K120 with HDR is no easy task, suggesting 7680x4320 at 10 bits per color channel (so 30-bit for RGB) at 120 times a second would suggest needing 120 gigabits per second of bandwidth at a minimum (or 15 GB/sec). That's...
Well this is bullshit.

I have updated video drivers and re-installed DriectX v 9 and 11. The game I was playing worked fine at 3840 x 2160 x 60 Hz for a day or two, now it...
You will need to click the "Actions" button for the "Malware Domains" sub under the "filter preferences" option of ABP and update. I guess these don't update everyday as some of the subs were a few days old.
Perhaps I should look into the other adblocker you guys are using.

I currently have this Blu Ray player and it's a piece of shit. Or the TV is a piece of shit. Or I'm a retard. I'm on the exact opposite end of the A/V knowledge spectrum as SD.
My setup: The player is plugged directly into a Vizio E420VA TV via HDMI cable. No receiver. I only have a set of...

Signature Length increase. Current max is 500 characters. If there's no objections from other users can this be bumped up a bit? Nothing crazy, maybe 750?
Or is my current sig (cut down to meet current guidelines) too long and obnoxious already? LOL.
Thanks in advance.

Can we get please, pretty please, have the "edit post timer" increase from 5 minute to something longer? An hour? A day? 3-days? This would ease the pain for those with OCD or those who want to fix their mistakes, etc?

Good luck to him on his future endeavors.
