Microsoft Windows / Re: Windows 7 Component Store Cleanup - Rebase
« Last post by Vasudev on March 02, 2021, 10:49 AM »
My 6-year old mobo died and I forcibly had to upgrade. I got myself an i9-18090K with and MSI Mobo. I put 32GB of RAM so I can run VM's and give them generous amounts of RAM, plus run a ramdrive for temp files and use no swapfile. The SSD is 1 TB. I haven't checked but it's probably QLC. In order for it to last as long as possible it should be as large as you can afford with quite a bit of trimming to help even out the wear. They have 4 bits per cell, which mean they can only take about 1000 read-write cycles. Even getting TLC has become difficult.

I downloaded a "pre-activated" copy of Windows 10 from a torrent site. It was activated for a day or so then the activation was gone (unless I did something wrong somewhere). I rearmed it for 6 months with a KMS program. Does anyone know a way to activate this thing permanently? There are keys for sale on Ebay for less than . Even if I bought one that works, can you deacivate with KMS and reactivate with the key? Can anyone give me a link or something on this?
That's sad. I never heard of 18th gen Intel CPU may it's a typo. Haha... Intel CPU numbers are awful to remember. With AMD counterparts less in stock you could have got 5600x.
Even I switched to 1TB QLC from Crucial P1 for 250-300$ when there was a deal. I don't see any performance difference from my Samsung NVMe. It runs cooler and has better battery life on laptop. I would think rate Hynix Gold P31 as one of the best perf per watt SSD with TLC NAND.
This is AIO activator for MSO and Win 10. It can change editions of office as well. https://github.com/abbodi1406/KMS_VL_ALL_AIO/releases/tag/v0.41.2
It will add exclusions to defender and you can continue using win 10 w/o any trial limit. It will renew every 30/90 days.

I'm noticing that every day that passes getting a fully activated copy of Windows is easier. There are many preactivated copies on the torrents. There are also plenty of KMS programs that claim to activate permanently, even going as far as the program saying your activation is on Micro$haft's servers. It's clear MS doesn't make its money by selling activations, they make their money by advertizing and all that preinstalled garbage.
If you are against the commercial practices of Microsoft, and I can understand that, you can still buy a computer sold without Windows.
For example this one, which comes up with Freedos: https://www.fnac.com/mp44489064/MSI-GF63-10SCSR-1202XFR-Thin-Core-i5-10300H-2-5-GHz-Aucun-SE-fourni-8-Go-RAM-512-Go-SSD-NVMe-15-6-1920-x-1080-Full-HD-144-Hz-GF-GTX-1650-Ti-Wi-Fi-Bluetooth-noir/w-4#omnsearchpos=2

BTW, you test these on VMware. How many cores do you assign to the VM, or perhaps how many cores should you assign?
I think one is enough.

I've caved in and I'm just using nicehash now.
Why?
Mainly to keep my room at a steady temperature. I do not like having 1h of heat, 5h cold, then repeat.
Secondly, I'm not paying the electrical bill. I find the rent here extortionate and I see it as a way to reduce rent.
I dont make big bucks, I only run my gpu on 40~60% power, unless it is icecold, where i temporarily set it to 110% Usually make around €4~6 per day. Which is not a lot, or maybe it is, depending on how you view it and what you compare it to. It's nice when it is passive.

I don't understand something. I looked up nicehash in Wikipedia and got at least a remote idea of what is it. What I don't understand is how it keeps your room at a relatively steady temperature. Also, the 4~6€ a day, is this in real Euros or in satoshis?

Isn't there a thermostat where you live? Is it that the owner sets it real low to save money on whatever fuel they're using for heat?

Been playing Rimworld lately.
It's my dream game in a way. I'd love to make a very elaborate mod for it.
It has a lot of mechanics that I always wanted to have in a game.
But still, decent game. Played 80 hours in 14 days. Takes around 5~10 hours to actually get into the game and understand it enough to enjoy.

This is an unwanted side effect of making games complex and realistic. The learning curve gets higher and higher. You have to play hours and hours just to learn it. Not many people have the time -- nor the interest.

Maybe you've heard of Valheim?
It's a viking "mmo" with up to 10 people on a server, where you survive, and beat bosses together.
It's like minecraft, terraria, and raft had a baby.
No I haven't.
I heard of minecraft but I don't know what it is.
Note that a new repack of the frictional games will be available soon for those who like Soma or Penumbra. I know that Vasudev told us that Penumbra might be too scary for him, but I like this game and its mods.

Sirloin steak is too fancy for me :)
Tonights breakfast was *drumroll*... Milk and cereal.
Night time dinner: Bread with cheese and ham.
"normal" breakfast(Morning food): undecided. Likely some noodels or something.
Milk and cereal for dinner? That's original.
Cheese and ham are good for me. If we meet one day, you will not be able to avoid the saucisson since it seems you are eating pork meat.

Tonight I'm having eggs and pasta.

When you make food, do you plan ahead, before going to the store?
Well, sometimes I plan to do something special. Maybe you remember the photos of the squid here: https://www.nomaher.com/forum/index.php?topic=2283.msg30177#msg30177
I went to the supermarket to buy them. But most of the time I don't. I bought this vegetable salad this morning and I had one boudin left in the freezer...But I now think that the boudin doesn't match the rest of the dish, a sirloin steak would have been better.

When logging in to steam some nice person in my friendslist had given the game to me. I thought it would be bad.
To my surprise this is probably the best polished game I have seen in a long while. Although there's not a billion amounts of content, that's okay. The things that are there are beautiful, decently simple, and engaging.
No massive issues, no crashing, and no "getting stuck" everywhere. I've heard desyncs exist, but havn't had them myself. It matters a lot that everyone in the party/game has good internet, as the person who first joins a region will be in charge of syncing all animals and items etc. Even if the game is server-based.

I've came to expect games to have extreme issues on launch. This was not one of those games.

Im unsure if I think it deserves the extremely good reception it has had, but it definitely does not-not deserve it.
