    Sorry for the double post, official now


  • Arcon commented on In Brief: Amazon Buys Twitch for $970 Million

    It probably makes sense for Amazon, and Amazon's cloud/servers should benefit Twitch

  • Arcon commented on Must-have Android Apps?

    Over text would just be the MMS support (Does mms even support video?) or links to an uploaded video;

    You should probably try to send it through Hangouts (Hangouts to Hangouts) or a 3rd party app like whatsapp/snapchat/etc, it'll be less headaches in the long run.

    Still leaves you with the terrible data usage problem, I cant help as far as compressing the video goes, but I'll do the obvious and recommend you send stuff over wifi

  • Arcon commented on attack of the ford banner ad ahhhhhh!!!

    If an ad is actually breaking the site, telling someone to just 'get a premium membership' is not a solution.

  • Arcon commented on PC Building stream archives.

    It looks like they used Justin.TV for the original stream, which probably explains why they're gone. Hope someone at Tested had archived/source footage!

  • Arcon commented on Must-have Android Apps?

    I third Pocket Casts, it is the best podcast solution Ive used on any platform.

    I read a lot so Moon Reader+ is also one of my favorite apps, and Timely is a great alarm clock app.

  • Arcon commented on An odd clicking noise coming from my computer speakers

    That's an odd issue if its not hardware-related (I was thinking the HDD doom sound initially). Be sure to run some anti-virus/etc scans and, worst case, there's always the option to do a clean install.

    Is it safe to assume this is windows? You could try turning off the system sounds and see if that does the trick.

  • Arcon commented on In Brief: Witness the Kilobot Swarm

    The bots are pretty cool, but yeah, video could have definitely done with some sort of audio

  • Arcon commented on JP Morgan Chase's password field isn't case-sensitive

    That's.... kinda scary actually, I wonder if this news'll go viral

  • Arcon commented on MoviePass is a bad deal.

    I'm gonna go out on a limb and suggest that the brand new user who necro'd a 10 month old thread defending a company miiiiight have only signed up on behalf of said company.

    @thamster: Wouldn't have helped, they nuked EVERYTHING not a "Highlight"

  • Arcon commented on twitch + justintv archive backups

    No one really had time to save video that they didn't already have locally (or exported to Youtube). Will had said on the podcast they think Octoberkast 1 was on UStream, but anything on twitch/justin is probably gone for good

  • Arcon commented on The content for "Premium"

    10/10 for this thread, now can yall stop with the drama and get back to the largely ignored topic for the thread.

    Honestly, I have yet to find anything in Premium worth subscribing for; I wish there were more "dumb" videos ala the Whiskey days

  • Arcon commented on Old Intel Pentium MMX Lapel Pin I found

    So I got my hands on this yesterday, still sealed. Pretty cool find I think, I wish Intel still did cool things like this

  • Arcon commented on Any suggestions for Ghettobox 2014?

    Hello, thank you @TsunamiJuan for your reply.

    I switched the board over to a B85 board, and tweaked some more. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/38uwS

    At this point, the question falls to AMD or Intel, and I'm leaning towards Intel, Broadwell should work if my motherboard gets a proper BIOS, and even if I wait a couple gens out, Fry's got rid of the Sandy/Ivy Bridge stock with some crazy sales I unfortunately missed. The 2600k went for $185 for example.

  • Arcon commented on Any suggestions for Ghettobox 2014?

    Yes, the last few years the various part manufacturers have worked hard on getting power consumption down. On one of the recent Loyd builds on Tested, he powered a Nvidia Titan (Highest end, $1000 GPU) with a 660Watt PSU

  • Arcon commented on Any suggestions for Ghettobox 2014?

    So I got bored. And did a thing. Maybe I should do different budgets for fun. Here's another minmaxed build, its mostly the same idea but with an i5 instead of the 6-core AMD part, it put me a little over. I coulda cheaped out on the mobo some more but I wanted front-panel USB3 and enough audio ports to feed my Logitech G51s; I did have to drop the RAM, its my only regret about this budget build. No fancy table this time.
