replied the topic Nvidia Shield K1 battery/charging time created by Qrow

Thank you for the link! I have done a bit of testing to find out what's draining the battery so fast, and it is always, always screen. So obviously I set brightness to minimum and turned off all fancy graphics stuff. It did help, just a tiny bit. So I'm thinking - what if I flash it to a rom with better power management options overall? Can't say which one, I need to do a bit of research on that, but I'm sure there is something..
You don't think that would, not necessarily fix, but at least help out a bit?

@pustoi11 So... the way to go is to get another tablet? It's such a shame, I had high hopes for the K1, but I cannot work with a device like this. Simple as that.

Then, the natural follow-up question is - what do I replace it with?

Well, I would dare to try. I'm not too happy about it as it is, so why not? I'm in the middle of a big move right now, but I will give it a shot later!

replied the topic Where is the safest place to store important files? created by moonlight

For the usual stuff, I keep one hard copy offline, one in a cloud service, and one that I use, which syncs automatically with the cloud.
Fot the really, really important stuff, I keep one copy for use, two offline copies at home, one highly encrypted online, and then I have encrypted offline hard copies spread out over the globe. I keep one in Sweden, one in Germany, one in China and one in the US, stored by my most trusted friends. So if they nuke Europe, there is still copies left. If they somehow nuke both Europe, China and the US at the same time, well.. then it's still the safest procedure I've come up with so far.

Try - they are a domain registrar, web hosting site and have lots of tools for building websites, online shops, SEO optimization, unlimited email accounts and aliases, SSL, FTP etc. And it's cheap! Working flawlessly for me for years, not a glitch anywhere.

I don't. I build my own machines, so I can choose hardware configuration as I please, and also I can be sure it's been built by a pro technician.

replied the topic Do you check your partner's phone? created by Cheetos

I do, if he explitely ask me to do so, for example reading a text when hes' working on something else at the moment but still wants to know what it says and who sent it.
I also do not open his email,, his laptops, his tablet, his regular mail etc unless asked to do so.
We both have the riight to some privacy, and I certainly not wanting anyone reading conversations where a friend has had a really tough time. They told me, not anyone else. I suppose his friends do the same thing, that they talk to him if they need him, and that's none of my business.
Basically, I guess it's a trust issue.

replied the topic What should i do ??? :( created by jammmol

I kinda had the same problem. I've got a degree in informatics + I'm a fully trained HR-expert, and after 10 years of university studies, I couldn't get a temp job. Then, by a lucky chance, I met a manager at Scandinavia's largest online retailer, mainly consumer electronics. He gave me a job as an IT-technician, but a few years later I had to quit, mainly because the organization management went nuts, so then I was back to zero. What I did eventually was changing career completely, and now work at a government agency in a position that has nothing to do with electronics at all, apart from reading my email...
So basically, I have two advices for you:
1 - don't give up. You never knows who you will meet tomorrow, or where that may lead.
2 - there are other opportunities in life. At your age, you can still change profession. I went from a HR specialist degree to kickass technician, in three years time I was the best tech in the corporation, and and now I wil work with government management. I'm 353 years old, changed university programmes three times and changed carees. So try to keep cool, try to keep your options open also in other fields of work.
Hope that you can somewhat make use of my story. Good luck!! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!
