I never heard of VGA carrying sound, VGA is a rather old and simple format, if someone knows different, please let me know.

HDMI will carry sound, but i do not believe vga will

You can get a cheap HDMI to vga adapter that does have a sound cable, but i never used it, and i can not speak on how well it would work

Judging from the comments, i am about to catch so much flack

I enjoy it here to be honest, you will always have toxic, but compared to other places, it is rather calm.

i ended up going to get it a few days ago, and i really like it. The only thing that sucked is you would have to buy your own adhesive, the stuff that it has does not work well at all. but the lights themselves are great

I do try to give back one way or another, At least once a month i go help out at the soup kitchen, more if i am able, and plan on getting more involved in other services for the homeless, mainly because 4 years ago, i was right on the edge of being homeless, and i was one of the lucky ones. I have also helped other services that this project is working on.

At the start of last year, i had 20/20 vision, but it has went down hill lately, scared to go to the eye doctor, because i know i am walking out of there with glasses.

I know that is not what you meant by your sentence, but at the same time, i hope things work out well for you.

This really comes down to use case, if you can do everything you can do with a tablet or iPhone efficiently. Then that might be your best bet.

I do things myself that requires a PC, and even know i can do the same thing with a tablet or phone, it would not be efficient. I game yeah, but mainly do other things that require a PC. The good part about tech in 2019 is you have options to go different routes depending on what you want to do, and what you like.

Much better now, thank you. I seem to be a completely different person this week, i am active, doing a lot of stuff, and last Friday and 9 days before, i could not even crawl out of bed, because the pain was so bad. but it was the worst pain i ever felt, for the longest period of time, to the point where i even went to the ER, and i barely was able to make it there.

You get karma by being part of the community. You could try helping out people or being nice. In the short of it, when someone hits the up arrow you get 1 karma, if they hit the down arrow, you get a karma point taken away.

As for the store.. Once you get your karma to a certain point, it will unlock for you.

I rarely ever see reCAPTCHA on PCPP , but i am sure it is there to keep robots from making accounts for reasons of spam or other reasons.

Here is the real deal, nobody but google really knows how it works. However there are people who think and honestly, i believe them. That it tracks your movement of your mouse, and if the movement feels "robotic" if you give you over options to figure out if you are human.

I bought a executive office chair Serta brand, with memory foam and a bunch of other cool features, and i will say this, it was one of the best investments i ever made for countless hours of sitting on my butt. If you would like more information, i will be happy to share it with you, if you wanted to go the same route as me. I have had my chair for about a year now, very little wear, on it, no sign of breakdown, and maybe a few places around the handles, the stitching is not like new anymore, but you would have to look to even notice. The chair got a 5 out of 5 review from me, and i have talked very highly of this chair in other threads as well.

Also as a side note, i recently bought a few Serta pillows, highly recommend...

I been meaning to comment my thoughts on it. When i first seen it, i was kind of in shock, as another commenter put it, I instantly thought door stop. Than the fact that it did not look like anything else on the road today, made me think i like it. I do like the numbers, honestly even like the shape and the simple inside as well. But there is a big issue i see with the truck. I used to work out of trucks all the time, and i spent a lot of time loading and unloading out of the sides of trucks, and the access to the sides would get annoying, however i think i would maybe get used to it.

The staff here really does a very good job. Not only do they take care of issues quickly that need to be resolved, they also dont jump on the gun "most of the time" and hit that ban hammer.

Side note: i even got threatened with a ban once... I think it was a joke... i think. I would have to find that comment, but with 4010 comments, that would take more time than i am willing to put into it

Building a new PC would be better than buying, but it always comes down to how much you can put into it. But if you build one, you will feel better about your PC. Just because most people feel good when they put time and effort into a project and it is completed and works.

If it is part of your build, do it. Add your desk, your chairs and your snacks.
There is no strict rules on what you are suppose to have on your build list. To be honest, i love to see people be creative and go outside of the realm of what is normally "accepted" as a build. I like to not only see the builds, i like to see the area, office space or whatever of the build.

Having small bumps on your face is no joke, just go and find a dermatologist and find out what it is..

I have a past post here with pictures that will show you why you should get it checked, I am speaking from someone who had major surgery on his face because of a "small bump" I will post the link the topic here, but when you look at the pictures, i will tell you right now, they are not for the weak of heart...... I had a major hole cut out of my nose..

This is a interesting topic for me, because it made me think, and now i wonder if i need to buy myself something totally meaningful to me but is something i could live without. I cant think of much right now, i guess i lived with very little for so long, the only things i get now, are things that have purpose, however at the same time, those things i have are much better than they used to be. I will get back to this topic if i can think of one single thing i have that is frivolous, if i cant find something, than i will have to make a trip on payday so i can add to this topic..... If you are wondering, no, i do not even have pictures on my walls because they do not serve a use to me, so that is how deep it honestly goes

I decided when things are more calmed down, i am just going to build a custom desk. I have 6 foot desks, and 8 to 6 feet L shaped desks, but i need 7 feet. But right now i bought a 6 foot folding table from walmart and this is what it ended up looking like, not to bad.. 3 27 monitors and 1 43 inch 4k monitor..

the space between the 2 walls is right at 7 feet.

that sounds really nice, my office is 10 x 12 feet, but was able to put my big multi display, will have my server over see, and i even have the standard ugly office couch....

just to get a idea, i have 3 27 inch 1080 monitors, 1 43 inch tv (monitor above) sadly for right now it is sitting on a 6 foot long walmart desk. to my right i have my ugly office couch. near the back i have my trash can, coffee pot and paper shredder, and behind me is another desk. It is where i will have my server soon, and a headless unit. I am also sitting on a pretty nice serta (bought from walmart) executive chair.

Here is a picture, i know those wires look crazy right now, but i will fix that in the near future. yes i took this picture in the middle of writing this post if you can see it that clearly. yes, i am looking for a headphone hanger as well in case someone wants to ask if i plan on just leaving my headset here.. remember, the office has only been around for like 3 days.

Most of the time i am on a set schedule, and i work with overseas offices, so i have to be around for them. I have a few temp things set up, and i few things that will stay for a while, but for the most part i moved my office office, into my home office. so it kind of feels the same, however i did a few personal perks to make things work out better for me

All very good advice, i do plan on staying on a work schedule. I plan to get up every day, get dressed for work, and go to work. I think of it as just a shorter driver to work. Due to the nature of my job, i cant really work when i want, because i deal with overseas a lot, and i need to be around at the right time.

I do most all my communication through text, email whatsapp, even when i was in the office. so i rarely talk to people, and when i was at the office, i was there by myself 90 percent of the time (i liked it). It helped my production more than hurt it. As far as the IT stuff goes.... I am the IT, so all the backups, network, firewalls, will be handled because as you know, security comes natural to most in the IT field.

Thank you for your input.
