        For example, if I wanted to disable 7-zip contextual menus, I would add a reg string entry named "{23170F69-40C1-278A-1000-000100020000}" with a value of "7-Zip Shell Extension" to this key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Shell Extensions\Blocked" and remove the same string from the Approved key.

        It's not trying to be anything it's not. I'd prefer a higher class/ lower TDP CPU option, but cannot complain. I use a single 65w USB-C PD charger that I share with my Dell Precision 5520. It will fully charge the device in about an hour. Standby is the best I've seen in Windows. I can present out on the Go in meetings while taking notes on the 5520.

        Get a phone case so your phone does not break. So many fucking hipsters walk around with their iPhones without protection case as if it is unbreakable. Then it gets damaged and it is an emergency and they will get a replacement (with our without insurance). No wonder they end up broke every few months...

      XenForo does not allow me to edit posts larger than a paragraph on mobile. This is why I rarely update loaner positions on original posts.

        This has had me screaming bloody murder. But I just discovered that it is bound to the cursor, not the last paragraph. So editing text should be doable, if cumbersome, but using the toolbar won’t be for anything too far down.

        @Mystic @atomicbob Thanks. Rebooting helps significantly. The distortion goes away completely, but a lesser version comes back after a bit occasionally. The lesser version (still just the left channel) will go away when I cycle the source button, but the wind chime distortion will not. Perhaps it's time to email @schiit.

        Dr. John Young presented at our AES section a few years back. Many of our members utilized his services until he moved to Western Washington University where he teaches audiology. Anyone trained by him might be very good.

      LF Thunderbolt 3 dock with >= 130W of power delivery through TB3 port. Any suggestions?
      1. Torq
        Torq
        Pretty sure that TB3 *ports* are limited to 100 W of power delivery. Docks can supply more than that for graphics cards, etc, but not over the cable.

        Hmm. The Dell TB16-240W quotes up to 130w over their cable for their laptops. Other TB/ USB devices are stated at 60w. Was wondering if there were any others up there. I’ll probably just do a two cable solution if I run into issues.
        Jul 6, 2018
      3. Torq
        Torq
        That’s because Dell are leveraging the “vendor specific alternate power modes” part of the USB-C PD spec (rather than it being something Thunderbolt 3 specific). That 130w is only available using a specific cable and into devices that specifically support Dell’s alternate power mode (likely just a subset of their own laptops).

        Three questions to ask about any political candidate: 1) Is X competent? = Can X do the job well? 2) Can X win? 3) Is X ethical? I seldom get to asking whether the person agrees with me.

        There are some impressive technicalities, but the FR is screwed. Very metallic harmonics on vocals. Recessed fundamentals on vocals. Awkwardly boosted bass, nice impact, but not very linear not cohesive.

        I thought the trios were better balanced than the fourte, but something about the sound was too diffuse and not focused enough. I don't know about technicalities but i have a feeling the pp8 will come out ahead.
