Personally I see no reason to use a laptop unless you absolutely need portability. Desktops are more convenient, comfortable to use, cheaper and much more configurable.

Returning to CPU's, I was reading that AMD is about to release the Ryzen 9 (a.k.a., Threadripper). This beast will have 16 cores, 32 threads. Clock speed is unknown at this time. It has 44 PCIe lanes, quad-channel RAM support on the X390 or X399 chipset, and runs on the SP3 socket with 4,094 pins. For starters this will go head to head against Intel's Core i7-6950X, and later against the i9. All the more reason Intel is in no position to cripple the i9.

Before I forget - the only way to take full advantage of these hi-end CPU's is to run Windows 10. MS has confirmed it will NOT write drivers and/or other software for these new CPU's for Windows 8.11 or older. So if you manage to get yourself one of these beasts, don't even dream of not upgrading to W10. I'm saying this because once a guy on our forum bought himself a top-of-the-line Core i7 with 16 GB of RAM - and installed XP on his new system because it's "what he knows"  :o. He then complained his new system only reported 2.9 GB free RAM. Go figure!

Thanks for the upload. Let me ask - are the English subtitles included in the movie or do we need to find a separate srt file? Despite the fact that the setting is Tehran in 1980, is it safe to assume this is not a political movie?

That site you uploaded the movie to is OK. At least you can download without installing their app, or some other catch.

Incidentally, Maher speaks Arabic, Russian and English. He doesn't speak Persian. I'm not sure about Ahmad, but to my knowledge he's never visited Iran.

Tonight, a new movie is available on the forum, titled, under the shadow, and released in 2016. It's a movie produced by Jordan, Qatar and Iran.

The story: As a mother and daughter struggle to cope with the terrors of the post-revolution, war-torn Tehran of the 1980s, a mysterious evil begins to haunt their home.

If you liked the movie The Babadook, maybe you will enjoy this one.
Certainly, some of you like Maher, Ahmad or HMMM, are speaking Persian, but I found it useful to add some English Subtitles anyway.
Note that the movie has nothing to do whatsoever with shadow.97 (some of you may have imagined that the title was "under the shadow.97").

Tonight, I'm going to tell you a little story.

Once upon a time there was a leaning castle, in Mesopotamia, with goblins and their Santa Claus. In the West, we have ceased believing in Santa Claus a long time ago, but this is not the case in this rich and distant region. And one day, the goblins enthroned their Santa Claus in their beautiful castle.
In this holy month, large numbers of disciples were present in the castle, and the arrival of the goblin’s Christmas fathers was rather unexpected: most of them were flabbergasted. The goblins were obliged to close the doors of the castle to prevent the arrival of other disciples. But something was wrong: this one had a black beard, and many disciples realized that he was not the one they had been waiting for centuries.
The fake Santa Claus knew it, but he continued his sermon with an unabashed aplomb, scanning relentlessly the whole assembly. In case a disciple would have recognized him, he would have brandished his Kalashnikov to prove his good faith.

After his enthronement, the fake Santa Claus turned out to be very generous with his siblings. He offered them many presents and taught them the virtues of religion. Unfortunately it did not last: he disappeared as quickly as he arrived and his goblins became very naughty. Lately, they decided to blow up the castle as a sign of protect. And in many countries around the world like Pakistan, some demonstrations are now taking place: they want the Black-bearded Santa Claus back.
Today, an admirer of the fake Santa Claus had a nervous breakdown at the market of Parachinar, capital of the tribal area of Kurram in Pakistan. He paid tribute to him by using his firecrackers, which caused an extraordinary incident in the nearby crowd. Maybe there was some rotten kooftez tabrizi and flammable gazes in the vicinity, police investigations are under way.
And a few hours before, another goblin detonated his firecrackers in front of a police headquarters in the unstable province of Baluchistan, probably thinking that his father Christmas had been kidnapped by the policemen.

I don't think your hardware is too old or ancient. I actually used the Nvidia codename for 10 series GPU. Stick with 4790K for now, because latest ones( dubbed the i9) are crippled by Intel since they're fighting with AMD. GTX 970 can do VR and run most demanding things. Hell, its better than my 980M. Did you know that you can replace your laptop and desktop with DTR laptop from Clevo?

Notice that in my post I said I'll see what's available when it's time to update. It's not time yet, my hardware is still OK. Also, the notion that Intel would cripple the i9 makes no sense given that fact that now with the Ryzen they're facing the first real competitive threat in several years. You can bet borrowed money they'll do everything possible to stay at the top of the heap.

I was seeing the specs on the Clevo. Great machine if you've got a minimum of $2255 to spare (that's the cheapest one). A top-of-the-line desktop you assemble yourself is probably 40% of that. Besides, remember that a laptop is still a laptop. In my opinion, portability is it's only advantage. I'd much prefer to sit at my comfortably at my desk in front of my 28" 4K monitor than carry this thing around.
yeah clevo's are expensive yet you get desktop CPU & GPU performance.

Microsoft Windows / Re: Anti-Virus Windows XP

You're probably right HMMM, Maher is so strong he modified some windows xp files to be able to spy on you. Most probably, it's your anti malware program that does not work. And after all, why are you using an antimalware? Are you still using kazaa? Chances are it's your anti virus that is blocking something in the other program. But maybe you already tested those 2 programs on a legit version of windows. If you already have xp, what the **** are you doing here?
And above all, why are you still using xp, you certainly have a 15 year-old computer? I guess you are doing up the computer of grandpa with a brand new pentium MMX 200.

Maybe you can call Maher, maybe he'll give you rational explanations.
Since you seem to be a happy user, you can also make a donation.

So... With all due respect here Mr Maher...
There is no respect due... So **** you! You ******* cunt! Also just a recommendation, make people ******* verify their emails before you allow them to post stuff on your forums!
I got away with the email "upyourfuckingass@hole.com".
The verify does nothing if you are actually a human, and besides all of that, why? I am actually now tempted to report you to Microsoft for being a little scumbag.

Once again **** you.

Microsoft Windows / Anti-Virus Windows XP
« Last post by HMMM on Yesterday at 05:14 AM »
I am tech enthusiast and it seems to piss me off a fair bit that Mr Maher, has put a little bit of code into the Windows XP 32-bit system, that will either corrupt anti-malware and virus software or cause a BSOD error during the installation. This is not an issue with the program, I have tested that through various methods such as installing it in safe mode. Guess what? It installed. Go and boot into Windows normally again... No problem. Try to open the program, Oh look there are files now missing for the anti virus program, and the anti-malware program can't even start its process.
That's odd... In safe mode it works but in normal mode, it doesn't? Lets go back to safe mode to see if still works their... Oh look! Its corrupted! This is not an issue with the computer I am running it on either, I have tested 2 separate VMs on 2 separate computers. I have no doubt that Mr Maher will take this down as soon as he see's this so if you see this, I would suggest getting rid of your VM and OS installation for Mr Maher's version of Windows XP and getting a legitimate version off E-Bay with the disc or something like that.
