    I want to set up a live underwater web cam.

    Water clairty is going to be a huge problem. I'm a scuba diver and I've filmed in fresh and salt water with visibility ranging from 20ft to 200ft. Here is some of my footage. 30-40ft vis, filmed from about 10 feet away. 10-15 foot vis, filmed from about 5 feet away.

    AMD Athlon XP 3000+ Retro Build

    My second build was an athlon XP 3000+ too. First was a 2200+. Made the mistake of putting in a Geforce FX 5900 instead of a 9700 pro. Heck, I might still have that system somewhere.

    3 way thetford fridge in motorhome

    What exactly is a crackerling? Not even mighty google is helping me on this one. I am assuming that it's crackling, in which case, I would be looking at those two relays on the board. If one is getting weak, it could be activating and deactivating rapidly and making the noise. Is the fridge...

    How does a post being qualified as "low quality"?

    Censorship is nothing new here, it's happened in the past. Heck, GN was practically created just to get rid of the miscreants. That said, it's a private board and W1z gets to make the rules, plus it's nowhere near as bad as other forums. Don't like it, leave and make your own forum.

    Picked this up today.

    Hell no, I own a thrift store and I've gotten in several old gaming rigs. Mostly pentium 4, Athlon XP stuff.

    Old Games vs. New Games

    Trine, Ori and the Blind Forest, Super Meat Boy, Mark of the Ninja, Deadlight, Limbo and Portal are all prime examples of strong puzzle solving in modern gaming. One mistake that a lot of people make is ignoring the smaller studios, and there are some seriously good games there. Prototype is an...

    Old Games vs. New Games

    Pretty much, and any LJN game was right there with them. Jaws, Terminator 2, Monster Party, and Hydlide were some of the first games that my dad bought on NES. All sucked, but I played Monster Party the most.

    Old Games vs. New Games

    I've been gaming for a LONG time. NES era for consoles and Doom era for PC. A lot of people forget that there were plenty of turds back in the day and a bunch of instant classics. Same thing today. Sure, the EA and UBIsoft games are craptastic, but there have been some seriously good games...

    Who owns a VR or AR HMD?

    I have a PS4 VR unit. Does that count?

    Upgrade from a R9 290...RX 580 or Vega 56??

    I am using an RX580 right now. No complaints about it, way more powerful than my old GTX770.

    The Death Of NEXTPOWERUP

    I remember the COD4. Main thing I remember is that me and W1z didn't get along on the layout.

    The Death Of NEXTPOWERUP

    Dear god, that was a long time ago. I can't even remember the games that we reviewed for that. Wanting to say Fallout 3.

    14 Game Giveaway!

    Blood Knights. Kingdoms: New lands. As for getting hurt, well I have a ton of these stories. I will pick the dumbest for your amusement. This happened when I was 16. My dad and I were doing some electrical work for a friend, well my dad was doing the work, I was more or less standing around...

    How often should we upgrade

    I hadn't touched my rig since 2014. I5 4670K, GTX 770, mechanical hard drive, Windows 7 and 8gb of ram. That rig was still beefy enough to power just about anything. I was getting some windows errors that needed a clean install, so I got an SSD, 16gb of ram, windows 10, and an RX580. Since I...

    [FS][US] EVGA GTX 770 4gb FTW edition.

    Just upgraded to an RX580, so I am selling off my old EVGA GTX 770 FTW. It's still a pretty danged powerful card, it wasn't lagging on any of my games in 1080P. My heatware is old, but perfect 77-0-0, in fact, you can see where I bought this card back in 2014. Bare card, I don't have the box for...

    Mazdas new petrol engine doesn't need spark plugs and is 30% more efficient.

    Diesels suffer from a poor RPM range, they make great power, just not for very long. That's why a lot of your semis have so damned many gears, the usable RPM range is too narrow. The modern diesel solved a lot of the power problems by moon boosting with a turbo. You get a compression based...

    Mazdas new petrol engine doesn't need spark plugs and is 30% more efficient.

    Detonation is technically compression ignition, just unintentional and not timed. It's also a great way to blow a hole in your piston. It's also a great way to do this to a head gasket. With direct injection coming to gasoline engines, it was only a matter of time before a compression based...

    Want to be the Face of TechPowerUp?

    Good question. I already host my own youtube "How to" series. 800+ subscribers to my channel and 209K views since the start of the year. The questions would be on responsibilities, hours, and compensation (if any).

    A Memorial to Kreij - Gone 4 years but not forgotten- check out the latest build(s)

    He was. I knew him online for years, chatted with him a lot. That man went through a lot in his life and he never failed to brighten someone elses day when he had the chance. I really wished that I could have met him in person. Great job to everyone for keeping his legacy alive.
