    Warning points

    Can I have the Planck constant as a warning number? If not never mind...

    My short film (made entirely by me)

    Not bad There's a bit of a Pi vibe, which is a great film if you've not seen it.

    Memory Leak - Win 8.1

    Man, I don't know what's going on anymore. I've tried to make it happen (opening loads of tabs in Chrome, running Resolve, Premiere, Photoshop, After Effects, MediaCoder, Avid all at once then quitting) again, but it's not playing ball. I guess that's good? All I've done is go back to 32bit Chrome, and uninstall a few redundant drivers (which was more general housekeeping than trying to fix this) - but surely if it was chrome then it'd show in Resource monitor as one of or the sum of the Chrome processes? I'll post again when it happens.

    Memory Leak - Win 8.1

    Ran Malwarebytes and nothing of note to report. Chrome is back to non-beta This is how Resource monitor looked after restarting and ending stuff like Spotify, Google Drive, etc... (now I've opened MSpaint and Chrome, the 'In Use' bar has actually gone down and the 'Standby' bar is only a little bigger (~3226) :/ ) Interestingly Windows Defender is still doing stuff despite being 'disabled'

    Memory Leak - Win 8.1

    I don't have 8.1, so not sure how its calculations work. If you open up Resource Monitor, it should break it down a bit further into what's reserved, in use, on standby, and free. I'm trying to replicate it, when it happens I'll post a screenshot from Resource Monitor...

    Memory Leak - Win 8.1

    I'll get a 'Memory Low' notification when running just Premiere (which is set to leave at least 4gb of free memory) and the usual background services - so something's afoot. Edit: So under my user in the user tab it says I'm using 3.2gb

    Memory Leak - Win 8.1

    Initially I thought it was something to do with my network adapter (It still might be) as it started sometime after I installed it (TP Link TL-WN722N) I tried a couple of things and no dice. Any ideas? My google-fu seems to be lacking. Any ideas on possible causes or ways to start diagnosing the problem? I'm running Windows 8.1 Pro Thanks

    OnePlus One

    I realise they have a load of issues, but when I weigh the risks up with the cost/specification as compared to buying a contract-free comparable Android phone or iPhone they still come out on top. But as it is September, I wasn't going to rush out and order one, but wait a little bit to see what happens - then if I still wanted to get a oneplus I'd have a code for one.

    OnePlus One

    Does anyone here have one and would be willing to give me a code? I'm not entirely sure how it all works, but in return I'd send you back an invite code when I got one.

    Video editing question

    Info on the pipeline would be useful. How are the videos recorded, into what format, and why 60fps?

    I decided a while back to measure my life from a point where I started to make my own meaningful decisions (I decided on the age of 14) So, under that system I've been here since the age of 2

    I would have liked to have watched ZDTV/Tech TV back in the day, but didn't know it was a thing until it was all over...

    Yeah, I think so - had forgotten about that I think the slowdown may be a natural consequence of the current tech landscape (I don't know if this has been discussed much here before) I certainly haven't felt the need to do any 'real' overclocking or tuning for a while - my computer feels plenty fast enough at stock - especially since on the rare occasion I play a videogame it's on a console. The OverDrive feature on my graphics card works great, and the limiting factor is really the cooling. The other day I was colour grading a 45min film of mixed 4K and 5K RAW footage and monitoring it in 2K in realtime; on a 3-4 year old machine I don't have a fileserver at home anymore - I use Amazon services and big internal and external disks - or any other computers apart from my main desktop (I got rid of all of them recently...) All my friends who I used to build computers for now have iPads and smart TVs and MacBooks, so nothing doing there. It was awesome back in the day when you could have a cutting-edge machine and tweak the hell out of it and see/feel results. Now it seems to me to be prohibitively expensive with diminishing returns - don't get me wrong I'd love a box that could crunch faster, but I don't need it, and you've got to be pretty dedicated to stats and benchmarks to sink a few thousand into a machine. Also with all the enthusiast products out there now, it's not really so cool or underground and exciting anymore... but maybe I'm just a stupid hipster doofus It sure does!

    It's strange to think that I was only sixteen when I signed up, and to reflect on how messing about with computers has been one of the few constants though my life... Unfortunately the job dictates that I mostly use Macs these days! OCC was started in 2001 right? I reckon when 2021 rolls around there should be a big-ass party, I'd fly to the states for that
