Engadget recommends the TP-LINK Archer C7 v2

Why don’t they recommend the C9? It’s only thirty bucks more. I don’t see the point in buying another C7, I already have version 1.


Comment says 5 GHz doesn’t work on it, that means they have version 1, therefore they don’t have the router Engadget recommends.

Should probably keep my router and buy something else I don’t need, like a Moto G.

They don’t recommend the C9, so I can’t buy it. They say the C7 is better then the C8. Probably better then the C9 too. To bad I have version 1.

Can I exchange my v1 for a v2? Pretty sure the warranty is over by now though. Maybe if I pay a small fee, I can get a v2.

Windows 10 likes rebooting itself

You’d think by Windows 10, they would have a method to update your computer without rebooting. That isn’t the case. Doesn’t log itself back in and open your programs either. Luckily my virtual machine gets suspended instead of shutdown, so it doesn’t take as long to start it up.

NVIDIA SHIELD doesn’t like my router’s wifi either

Not just Apple stuff. When I first got the SHIELD, I hooked it up by wifi. I think the NVIDIA SHIELD has wireless AC, so I didn’t test the 2.4 GHz signal. Worked way better after I plugged ethernet into it. I have a long ethernet cable going to behind my TV, plugged into a switch with two smaller ethernet cables. The PS4 is wired too.

The Fire TV liked my wifi. Think it was 5 GHz. Ethernet was kind of useless on the Fire TV, not gigabit.

NVIDIA SHIELD audio sync setting doesn’t appear to do anything

At least not for Sling TV. The lips in Sling TV are out of sync or something. I didn’t try the max audio sync setting though. Maybe the SHIELD isn’t supported by Sling TV, so it’s out of sync. Sometimes the video goes super slow, like you’d get in a game if the FPS was low. I gave my Fire TV away, so I don’t know if it’s any better. Don’t think the PS4 does Sling TV. Ahh well, I’ll just watch it with the lips out of sync.

Might only work if you plug the NVIDIA SHIELD into a receiver. I have a soundbar without HDMI, so it’s plugged into the TV, my TV has optical out.

Don’t think the audio delay thing on my soundbar does anything. No lights blink or anything on the soundbar when you click it. Can’t remember how messed up it was before I clicked two hundred times.

Phone is still slow

Should probably order a Moto G next month instead of a router. Guess using the performance CPU governor doesn’t speed up the LG G3. Thought it was at first. But I think I’ll buy a new router anyways, cheaper then the Moto G.

Rebooting might make it faster. Cheaper then buying a new phone.

Ancient Aliens

Good show. Lots of evidence there was gods, that also might of visited earth. How do you get one of those gods to come to earth and heal me of my insanity? Or better take me with them?

Looks like wormholes might be the only way to space travel. Will I be alive when they figure out how to make a wormhole? Or find a wormhole? I want to go in it naked. That won’t work if the wormhole is in space, I’ll die. So a see through space suit will work.

That’s pretty shitty. Maybe I should redirect panhandlersonline.com to this blog. It gets more then 28 visits.

That’s a good idea

Save your money until you have over 2k, then lose social security, then get evicted for not paying rent after you run out of money. Best plan I’ve heard.

Sling TV makes me happy

I mostly watch the History and H2 channels. Probably should cancel the 5 dollar add on. But I’m lazy, so I’ll keep it how it is.
