Technology & Hardware / Call going out to my Wellington Homies
« on: March 27, 2020, 11:50:49 am »
So I've entered this lockdown without a functional PC...

I'm in need of a GPU that'll play some games at 1080p. I don't need super good/super fast or anything and I'm happy to make it a purchase or just borrow for the duration. Whatever works. I'm not picky.

If anyone can help me out it would be very much appreciated!

Long time no see. How are we.

Down to brass tax here. I need to learn how to code as I fucking hate my trade job.

So far I've signed up to Plrualsight, Teamtreehouse, and FreeCodeCamp. I've gone through some HTML, CSS and barely touched JavaScript. I've also been on Teamtreehouse trying to learn Swift.

Am I a retard because I can't grasp this shit on my own, or what?

What I would love to do is make a connection with someone in Wellington who has the time and patience to help me learn. I cannot pay you, I am poor. I can just offer my time, and all the time required at a time that suits whoever may stick their hand up.

Let's say I wanted to mount a PC to the back of my TV. Mostly for playing media, but maybe a little web browsing etc.

Now, we want a silent PC to do this with.

This is cheap, and would work, I assume?

But then there is something like this, which would be fucking baller.

Oooor throw me an alternate idea?

EDIT: Or just use a dedicated NAS drive like this? Sure I suffer no web browsing on the TV but media playback should be pretty good?

General Chat / I need a new job. What are my options?

I'm a plumber/gassfitter by trade (qualified) and have been working at Harvey Norman for the last 2 years as their technician (more like resetting fuckwits email passwords and baby sitting morons). There is some little technical work to it, but nothing aspiring. Just basic level trouble shooting.

I don't really want to go back to the trade. Body destroying dangerous work.

I don't want to work at Harvey Norman because of the following; It's embarrassing, terrible pay, outdated business model, nothing to learn, no training, nothing to internally aspire to, no fun, over worked, customers in a place like that are horrible, horrible closed minded superiors, ridiculous and narrow minded egos.

At this point, with a 7 year old daughter in Wellington who I love and do not want to leave, I'm feeling like I have very VERY limited options to do anything other than idiot work.

Any advice/job offers welcome.

Smashingly awesome game. Just released on steam.


With double the battery life of the strongest current Windows 8 competition, the Apple MacBook Air 13-inch (Mid 2013) adds epic untethered usability to a highly portable system.

Nice. Now show me the high res version.

Anyone got some good price vs performance 1150 socket boards they would recommend?

I assume no one here is running haswell yet, but if anyone has read any reviews that are worth noting?


$599USD or for us, $755NZD.

This will be mine, I swear to god.

This special edition device, priced at $599, will be available in the United States (initially) and supported on GSM networks. Out of the box, this special edition HTC One will run Android 4.2.2 with subsequent software updates provided by Google.

Or maybe I'm doing it wrong?

In any case, this should be so much easier then it is.

I have a computer, I want to make a drive in the computer visible to everyone on the network with the ability to both read and write to said drive.

How do I do that?

I have shared the drive and added read/write permissions via advanced sharing, but I still cannot access the folder. I can see it, I can read or write to it though.

What. The. Fuck.

OS X has got you by the balls with this Windows, it really really does.

Technology & Hardware / Programming Question?
« on: May 14, 2013, 09:57:23 pm »
Having a play with the Android SDK. Straight up don't know how to write code. Not even once.

But that aside, I wouldn't mind wasting a few hours figuring some things out. I'll learn what I need to right, but I have one question that I think would help fit some things together for me mentally.

Example: I want to build an app for

How do I go from an icon on the screen, to an app that is buttons showing all the current links etc?

I guess what I'm trying to get to in a stupid way here is - How do I import a website into an app that is interactive/current etc?

I have Eclipse/SDK and am finding tutorials on that. I just need a few simple explanations/breakdowns/directions to connect a few dots.
