I just use the exhaust fan for temperature control.

If you use Firefox, you can transfer tabs between your phone and computer.

I made a sleeve of aluminum foil bubble insulation for mine. I taped it together with aluminum HVAC tape. It makes the enclosure heat up quicker, but I have to run the enclosure fan on longer prints to keep it from getting too hot.

Someone probably just did a crappy job converting HDR to SDR.

Will the chip actually last that long though? I would have expected a ceramic package with gold plated leads, not a plastic SOP-8.

Apple hardware is overpriced and they go out of their way to make it unrepairable.

It also makes the game look worse since you need to run it in 720p to get a playable frame rate, which requires non integer scaling on a 1080p screen. They could have gone with a 120Hz 720p OLED screen with variable refresh rate if they wanted a better screen than the Steam Deck for marketing reasons.

Why do they keep putting 1080p screens in the Steam Deck clones when they don't have enough GPU power to run most games in 1080p?

Torrents and usenet will get you high quality videos if that's what you want. Streaming sites are usually only have low bitrate videos.

I doubt many people would do that. You would have to intentionally set it up that way. Residential ISPs almost always supply a modem with a built in router which will have a firewall. You would have to set it to bridge mode, enable the DMZ, or use your own modem.

I haven't connected a computer directly to the internet since I used dial-up.

The quality of Google search results has been rapidly declining over the last few years. It's not really even worth using anymore.

I found a website that showed my how to use RSS feeds to automatically download TV shows. Having my favorite shows download automatically overnight was very convenient. There was no streaming services for TV shows back then and even if there was, my internet was way too slow for that. I had a portable media player with a massive 80GB hard drive that I could load my pirated TV shows and ripped DVDs on when I was away from home.

I picked this little scope up from the Seapac swap meet a week and a half ago for $3. It turns out that all it needed was some contact cleaner to get it working again.

This is a portable scope that can run from 12V DC as well as an internal battery. I don't have the battery for it, but I could probably put some 18650's in there if I disable the built in charger.
