    Nope. Comcast in my area doesn't seem to care if I go over the cap, even though I have been for almost 2 years.

    Too lazy to log into my router so here is an older image:

    Only 30GB? you must not stream a lot of movies. I watch a lot of netflix haha
    Quote from Xaanos

    Cable is unlimited I probably use something like 800GB a month at least.

    Also my Phone data is unlimited I have used 60GB in a month before average is usually 10-12GB


    What do you do that uses 800GB?!?

    So i got a letter in the mail today from my internet provider. They said they would be capping my data at 250 Gb per month. Even though i only use about 150 GB a month it still frustrates me. It's like telling you how often you can wash your clothes or take a shower. I pay good money for my internet and i don't think they should be able to limit how often i use it.

    /rant

    Anyone else having problems like this?

    I just spent half my afternoon trying to clean AVG off my computer. Thankfully, with help from Revo uninstaller, I was able to rid my comp of that wash.

    I was wondering what forms of security you use for your computer? I scan with Malwarebytes regularly, but is it enough to guard my front gates?


    Malwarebytes and spybot search and destroy. Other than that just use your brain and don't download sketchy things and you will be fine.

    Nope, there's only one kind of capacitro (although they vary hugely in specs).

    The thing you linked to is presumably designed to prevent the spikes in power drain from a car audio system from causing momentary power drains on the other car electronics (eg to stop the headlights from dimming every time there's a big bass kick).

    It doesn't make the battery last longer since it takes it's power from the battery. Capacitors are kind of like short-term batteries, they sit in a circuit and build-up a specific amount of current like a small reservoir, so when the circuit requires more current than the power supply (battery in this case) can supply the capacitor's reservoir is drained. It's a small reservoir that soaks-up the very short-term 'transient' power spikes. Although they have other properties as well, I'm not an electronics engineer so I can't give you anything more specific than that.


    Ohhh okay i gotcha haha thanks

    It's a universally used electronics component that's useful for several things (often smoothing-out the power supplied by a circuit). It certainly won't stop an audio system from draining a battery - they store 'transient' currents, they don't store long-term power like a battery. There's nothing useful you can do with it unless you're into electronics.


    Maybe we are talking about different types of capacitors or maybe i explained it wrong. (i've never used a capacitor in a sound system because it is in my room at the moment)

    I'm kind of into electronics but i don't know much i've dabbled with led's and wiring case fan's to 9v batteries lol

    This is not what we were talking about. Read the posts.


    edit:
    This......... I do not like this.

    This. So much this.

    If they do this i will definitely be sticking with windows 7. I might even go back to windows xp seeing as i have a performance edition of it that only has about 15 processes running on idle :P

    posted a message on Old Laptop as monitor
    No you could use another monitor as the monitor for that laptop but not the other way around. It is only meant to send signals out not receive signals. Like fm said there is a way to do it but it is stupidly complicated.

    The information is all there :)

    It's a Jamicon 25000 μf 25v capacitor, designed to operate up to 85c. Dunno what you pulled it from, but it isn't likely to be very useful.


    I don't know where i got it from either lol what are capacitors usually used for? I know that some people use them with massive speaker systems to keep their battery from dying but other than that i have no idea.

    Considering it's size, it's a shelf ornament now.


    I'll make something cool out of it lol

    That is a very large, but small "storage wise" at same time Capacitor. Oh legacy stuff, Y U So Interesting.

    Usally any old power supply I come across, if it still works and puts out ample power, it turns into a modified PSU for things that run of 5 or 12 volts DC current when need is found.


    The reason i'm using it as a coaster is because it fried. You can barely see the other power supply in the background that is running my 1500 watt amplifier and my 12" orion xtr pro subwoofer lol

    looks like an old capacitor to me, but i'm kinda guessing lol, also thats a handy use for a PSU :P


    I think you're right. Anything i could use it for other than decoration?

    Ikr it's a POS anyway, i might spraypaint it or something because that gray is uggglllyyyy

    So i found this today in my room and i don't remember where it came from and what it is:




    Can't really tell but there is a + and a - on the top.




    I thought it was some type of magnet but it is very light and didn't attract metal. I tried googling it and i couldn't find anything

    On another note, check out what i did with my old psu:
