Got an R9 270 and some old GTX 295. Both were working perfectly fine the last time I had them fixed to my PC. I just had them inside a box for a very long time since I don't game that often. I wouldn't mind getting rid of them for a few bucks.

Check carefully for dark marks or burnt smell on those components. If you're confident nothing's wrong, plug a working PSU to verify.

Guys! JFK it was a troll. *facepalm* :D

No, this shit won't work. I thought I left enough clues in my OP for a smart guy to figure it out. My goodness, I should be a politician in this country.

It's actually possible and I do it every month. You got a bit of work to do but it's well worth it and can have unlimited high-speed 4G internet.

You gotta find an activated 4G sim and do some soldering with your network cable. Follow these steps.
1) Get a bunch of activated 4G sims preferably Mobitel or Dialog as they have the highest speeds and there's a neat loophole in their systems which I'll explain at the end ;).
2) Get one of those soldering things. Like this. https://www.amazon.ca/Hobbico-HCAR0776-Soldering-Iron/dp/B0006NGZK0 Doesn't have to be fancy, you can find these anywhere in SL. Worst case scenario chewing gum even would work but it's a temporary solution since the SIM would heat-up when you use the internet and you have to re-chew a gum and paste wires again.
3) Cut your network cable and expose the individual wires and leave the end connected to your PC intact.
4) Solder or paste the exposed wires exactly like how I've shown in the picture. The colours and the slots have to exactly match. Otherwise, it won't work and you might fry the SIM so do it exactly as is in the picture.



That's it! Now you have 4G internet speeds on your PC, Laptop, MAC or whatever you can plug that network port into. The SIM is powered by the current coming from your PC through the network port and here's the unlimited data trick, you actually don't have to do anything! Since the SIM is not actually inserted into a phone and isn't communicating through Dialog or Mobitel servers for validation, they don't know the usage!! The soldering trick and the little current that comes through enables the SIM to power up just enough to allow internet access only!!! They will never know!!!!

If something happens to the SIM or soldering goes bad just use another SIM.

Game Lounge / Steam link app for Android and iOS
« on: May 18, 2018, 03:31:58 am »
As of this writing the iOS app is not yet approved so bad luck to iPhone users but Android (beta) is available.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.valvesoftware.steamlink

I just tried it on a Nexus 5 with 2.4GHz wifi and still it's far ahead compared to the competition. Everything is so responsive and smooth you can't tell much of a difference whether you play on the PC or the phone.

No Game Zone / Re: SLIIT vs IIT vs NSBM : Computer Degrees help
« on: January 07, 2018, 05:46:04 pm »
My plan is to do Game Development module in 2nd year. That's the main reason why I joined IIT.

Back when I was in the university I didn't have much of a choice in terms of learning game development. So I cut many lectures, spent time in labs on this site http://nehe.gamedev.net/.

One of the main things I have noticed is most people who get into game development nowadays start with some tool, like Unity. In my opinion this is bad. I'm quite sure you will not learn much apart from a specific tool like that. Spend sometime on the site I linked. It'll do you good.

First of all I must say, don't expect any of the universities to feed what you want to learn with a spoon. Learning does not work that way. The sooner you get that hard coded into your brain, the better because you have the most critical years of your life coming up ahead. And learning + experience is the best investment you could do for your future. Up to now you haven't had the chance to gain experience, so I highly recommend you focus on that and that'll eventually drive your desire for learning and what to learn. Wanna learn basics of networking? Just throw a freaking LAN party.

I studied at SLIIT, '06 batch. I'm employed at one of the top IT companies in SL as an Associate Tech Lead now. Nothing I do today is related to anything I learned at SLIIT. And I'm no longer interested in anything I learned at SLIIT. Why? we're in the ICT sector and that changes so rapidly none of the universities will keep up.

The most valuable thing I learned at SLIIT is that the best thing you can get out of university is the exposure. There are so many resources available to you, library, colleagues, lecturers, workshops etc. Use these resources to know what's out there and take your chances in each. Each time you take a chance, that's experience you're gaining, the more experience you gain the more you learn specifics and eventually you'll know exactly what you want to do by the time you get out. I will not comment on specific subjects but whatever the crap they teach, just learn it. [bold]IF[/bold] you think it's worth your time and get a good transcript by the end of your education.

Lastly, many top companies now hire on recommendation basis. This is becoming a trend because it is proven after many years or statistics that people hired through recommendations are far more likely to fit organization cultures and perform well. I interview people at my place and I never care about their educational qualifications. I don't even bother asking. It all boils down to 'here's my problem, now how are you gonna fix it?'. As long as you can answer that and excel, it really does not matter where you got your educational qualifications.

Is this actually the official Xiaomi site for SL? I cannot find any link to it from any official Xiaomi international page.

That's what they claim they are. I contacted them directly on this. Although I can't be sure 100%.

As for the products, I have been a Xiaomi fan for about a year now. Their products have always met my expectations and beyond. And you can't argue with their prices. Just FYI for new comers to the Xiaomi ecosystem, they don't make all the products. Xiaomi owns many many small companies that specialize in different markets. What Xiaomi does is push those smaller companies to make killer products that meet their quality requirements. So at first you might get put off by the sheer number of sub brands that come as Xiaomi products. And their portfolio is all over the place. Ex./Xiaomi even make cutleries, plates, plant pots, pillows, etc. etc.
