Supreme Commander Forged Alliance Gigabyte Z390 Auros Master Fraps recording and crackling audio
When I record fraps video of Supreme Commander Forged Alliance, the video ends up with crackling audio. This happens whether the CPU or GPU is overclocked or not. My old Asus motherboards never did this. DPC Latency monitor says everything is fine during recording
Windows 10 build 2004
Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Master bios F11c
It happens on my Asus ROG Maximus XII Formula as well. I discovered it crackles only if my speaker setup is set to 7.1. 5.1 and stereo works fine.
Samsung SATA SSD vs Optane 905P SSD Disk Cleaner scan time
I test the speed Disk Cleaner scans my main drive on a Samsung 850 EVO SATA SSD and an Intel Optane 905p SSD. The CPU and motherboard is also different. It is to see how much faster my new build is compared to the old one. See building Gaara i9-9900KS RTX 2080 Ti Z390 Aorus Master.
Found me in Satellite Reign
I found myself in Satellite Reign. In the game, you can hijack NPCs and use them as cloning templates. There was 15.000 backers for this game, so there is 15.000 NPCs. That means finding yourself is not quick at all, if I’m correct.Continue reading

Steam vs Origin UI responsiveness
Steam vs Origin UI responsiveness test. I noticed Steam was slightly jerky to use, and I compared it to a similar program. Both are digital distribution services for PC games, but one is coded more natively to Windows (Origin) and the other more open source WebKit (Steam).
Windows 8 – Metro no grow
When an unstoppable force meets an unmovable object. This is Microsoft pushing a touch pad UI onto their desktop users. It is pixel bloat and inefficient. If they are going to make something new, it must truly be better than what it replaces.
High PPI testing
Laptops, CRT, certain LCD desktop monitors and smartphones are capable of high PPI. This page tests this by displaying images at a smaller than their native size. That means if you open this page on a high PPI device next to a normal 96 PPI one, there will be a difference of sharpness and detail. You can try it out on “normal” monitors by using the page zoom in your browser. Zoom in to 200% and you should clearly see the diffierence in the images. The logo of my site is also higher resolution than displayed.
