I'm hooking up two monitors at the moment, and I got to wondering if it would be beneficial to run one of them on the integrated graphics. Would that offload some workload, or does diverting signals to two different graphic systems offput any benefits one would get?
Tried hooking them up that way and it works without any config at all (win 8.1).

Yeah. If you run Blender and it's pegging your GPU it won't lag if another GPU is running the GUI.

Normally though? no. And it's gonna fuck shit up like video playback when you move it back and forth.

Yeah I tried a while but changed over to just discrete GPU, much more stable in general.

my logitech g500 mouse finally kicked the bucket.

what's the modern-day equivalent of that one?

the amount of effort ive put into this post reflects the amount of effort ive put into my research before asking this question

Do you like working with old computers? I enjoy it. I installed Windows XP to this laptop pictured and I after figuring out how to disable the OOBE timer I am trying to get it up to somewhat usable speed. It is enjoyable for me and I do not know why.

Gigabyte GTX 1070 G1 vs. Windforce OC

Hey guys,

So everyone told me to get the WINDFORCE OC model of the Gygabite GTX 1070, saying the superior price tag of the G1 model wasn't worth it (indeed who cares about RGB lighting).

Here's the thing though, weirdly enough I can get the G1 for cheaper right now.

So here's my question: Should I go and buy the G1 after all if it's the same price or cheaper? Or are there hidden cons the G1 has that the Windforce doesn't have?

Thanks in advance.

Hello /tech/!

Back in the 90's web search agents was all the rage. But where have they gone? And is there any desktop program that does the same?

I'm more interested in getting the rigth answer over the quick answer. I'd love to have a program where you simply upload the pictures to it. And it runs in the background and notices me when it found something. I want the search to be customizable to the individual image. Let's say that image A will be given 100 searches during 10 days using 1 search engine and image B will get 100 searches during 1 day using 10 search engines.

I've checked out Download.com, but it's all Google-Google-Google. And Imageraider.com hasn't worked for me for a year.

Thanks in advance!

If you know how to write a python script and know what elasticsearch is checkout this: https://github.com/EdjoLabs/image-match
If not and you have disposable income pay some codemonkey 200 bucks on freelancer.com to do it for you. (You can probably get somebody to do it for half of that if you can wait)
If none of the above google moar and don't catch any viruses, good luck...

I've puttered on with 4GB of memory a good many years now, but thinking of getting some more.
Is it likely that the pricing will drop down again sometime or should one just bite the bullet and get some sticks before it increases even more?

>TL;DR
Is it a good/bad idea to spend money on RAM now if one can wait?

Especially with DDR3 since the new platforms support it and plenty of people were buying out the old stock when it was cheaper than DDR4. So that window of opportunity was very short.

But to OP, there's no way to know but it doesn't look like it. Just bite the bullet if you need to. I thought it would drop since I built my PC but it's only gone up.

If you don't mind testing it, you should only be buying used DDR3. Modules last pretty much forever and the price will steadily drop until most of it is in landfills.

Someone apparently wants to buy my pretty generic domain name

$500 for a domain, equivalent of oakservices.com pretty generic.

So, I got contacted by a broker from godaddy saying this buyer wanted it for 100. I told them I wanted 500 and accused them of being a scammer. They assured me it wasn't a scam, said the buyer found 500 acceptable. The broker seems to have a linkedin showing they've worked at GoDaddy as a broker for 5 years.

I'm just having trouble seeing the value in it, or the angle of some potential fraud.
There are surely ways to securely transfer domain/payment, so I'm less worried about that but it sounds unfun to research.
Another thought was that they would attempt to impersonate me, as I used an email from that domain in a few places.

Or maybe it's just totally legit and they want it that badly, or the money isn't a big deal. I asked what the buyer's purpose for it was, and got back something about medical information with procedures and diagnoses. It *could* fit the domain... I guess... maybe...

Also I was drunk and sending them all kinds of bullshit and they're still willing to talk, which raises a flag to me. But it could just be the broker accepting that some clients are drunk assholes.

Thoughts?

I've seen decent sites where they got enough free traffic that they could have charge for their services. But put their domain name for sale. Possible mistake doing so.
So it sits and sits, for months on end. Going back say a year later, nothing, not even a for sale sign.

once you know what you want the system to do, than creating the shell script is just a matter of knowing what steps and actions to take

Hey guys!

Alright, I'm really bad when it comes to things like this, hence this (very likely) stupid post.

The right side of my Audio-Technica headphones isn't working anymore. I don't know whether or not it's merely the cable.

Here's the thing though: I can't test it with a spare audio jack because of its design. It is too deep than for me to reach the actual port.

The picture highlights the aforementioned problem so that hopefully by now you understand what I'm going on about. So to sum it up, the "overextending" part of the cable is supposed to go in as well, so that it is far enough to make contact.

So finally here comes my question. Could I just put some aluminum foil at the end of the cable in order to reach the port and establish a connection? Or, is this the worst and dumbest idea in the history of /tech/? Also what would be the potential risks (assuming it is even worth trying).

Well at least I'm asking before doing anything since I really don't want to wreck my headphones, which I truly love and miss so much.

Thanks in advance my friends. Any tip on how to test if it's just the cable or not will definitely be greatly appreciated.

The thing I don't like it is I had an M50x with the swappable cables. Well I jiggled it around 'cos I had the one cable I liked and it would generally bring the left side back to working. Thing is, when I tried the other cables, it turned out that it's the single non-replaceable part of the connection that broke.

Call me paranoid but it seemed intentional.

Depends on how tech savvy you are. If you're comfortable figuring out how to install your own OS on mobile you can use that and be relatively safe.

By default though you should treat mobile phones as a device that isn't secure period. Nothing sensitive or that you wouldn't want others to know should ideally end up on there.
