Tech minor victory thread

Got simultaneous playing over the internet working...was surprised this was even possible with the latency most internet connections have.
 
Looks like you had to sacrifice a little of your aspect ratio to get it working, but not bad.
150ns or less is considered "real-time" for VOIP, so as long as you can keep the total end-to-end latency below 250ns (1/4s), you should be good for anything up to ♩=200 or so.

That's a bug (assumedly) in JamKazam. I couldn't find a way to fix it.

Music-wise, we try to keep the latency below 80 on the round trip, otherwise, it starts being obvious to the players and difficult to perform together. I'm assuming you meant ms here, since I'd love to have nanosecond latency ;) 250ms latency might be fine for voip, but 1/4 of a second off the beat for tunes is murderous. even with the 80ms round trip, we both end up having to pretend we're 'pushing' the tune (playing slightly ahead of the beat) so that we record together well.

When using PTP in things like Dante, which is a digital audio protocol I use a lot in devices for things like concert venues, we find that eveything's generally fine as long as we can keep the latency below 15ms. Of course, that's not really realistic for consumer internet, unfortunately.
 
I renewed a dormant subscription to my old VPN service over the weekend, only to find it no longer worked with any of the most popular overseas television services. I pled my case to customer support, and they were gracious enough to give me a full refund. I've since switched to a different service that works with BBC, ITV, and Channel 4 straight out of the box.
 
Uh... That's not a victory, mon ami. P0420 means your Cat system is dying. And considering WV winters, I suspect it's corrosion around your exhaust.

I've had the same code the last three cars running.
1) Someone stole the catalytic converter
2) Absurdly high mileage before I even bought the car
3) Low miles BUT previous owner obviously did not know Jack shit about cars and probably considered them disposable

I got fed up with my keyboard occasionally missing keys and finally got myself a properly nerdy gaming keyboard. I keep fat fingering things now because I'm not used to the extra buttons on the left, but it's nice. I haven't gamed with it yet, but I'm not ashamed to admit that it fills me with glee when the lights on my mouse, keyboard and headphones all pulse together. If only the kid who was obsessed with Tron could see me now all lit.
 
i was going to refresh my pc this spring, not going to happen until gpus are reasonable again.
What country are you from again? Because prices are very, very weird right now.
Newegg has the 3070 for $500. Continuously out of stock, of course, but still.
The cheapest I've found in Germany - also out of stock, BTW - is over €900. That's literally double.
With current ticket prices, we're approaching the point where buying it in the US, and just flying there and back to get it, is cheaper than buying here.
