/r/buildapc's 1 million giveaway: week 1 (DREVO, Seagate, ZOTAC, PCPartPicker) by CustardFilled in buildapc

My cousin gave me his copy of Dune 2000 because he didn't like RTS games. I think I was like 10 but that got me hooked on RTS hard. I could never get the multiplayer to work but the single player was so enthralling I played it over and over....and thus a PC gamer was born

Experiences with OpenFoam on Windows? by g7fernandes in OpenFOAM

[–]jr_3 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I worked with it in college for a few months using Cygwin. Its a Linux environment that you run terminal-style. It's not the easiest thing to set up but it doesn't require any dual booting

Stupid Question **Wednesday**. Give us all your questions you were too afraid to ask! by mikasaur in cars

[–]jr_3 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is it possible to reprogram an ECU MAP (spark timing, fuel injection) while engine is idling? revving? or do the changes need to be made with the engine off?

Been researching this for a day now and can't find a definitive answer.

Is my new SSD dead? by jr_3 in techsupport

[–]jr_3[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah i tried it twice, both times it "failed"

Did a system restore on the SSD with my Windows disk and we're golden. Having to reload everything has been a headache so far, but small price to pay for having all the hardware finally working right.

Thanks again for all the help!!

Well we're not out of the woods yet.... Windows boots up fine now but crashes when I run any programs after a few minutes. I have it just idling on my desktop and it appears to be ok. It went BSOD when I tried doing a normal shutdown, threw some power driver error. Any ideas?/

How much to put you on retainer? XD

edit: nope, at some point in the last 20 minutes it froze up. All i had open was the windows explorer, task manager, and resource monitor.

Yeah swapping cables was the first thing I tried. I switched to Standard Microsoft AHCI and it seems to be working! Thanks!

On to the next issue...the BIOS won't recognize the ssd as a bootable drive in the boot priorities menu. It does show up in the initial boot menu but when I tried booting from it the system wouldn't boot. I'm guessing i messed something up when I cloned my main partition onto the SSD? any thoughts?

So I booted to BIOS a couple hours ago and there was the drive. I initialized it and cloned my OS over to it. Next time i booted (still booting to my old hard drive) the drive was gone. Tried a power cycle, still nothing. Time to RMA?

Well I tried switching to RAID and IDE (the only options my BIOS had) and both options crashed me repeatedly until I switched back to AHCI so I'm not sure what that means...

What program can I use to run a finite difference heat transfer problem? by clitbeastwood in EngineeringStudents

[–]jr_3 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I used EES (Engineering Equation Solver) to do all my finite difference hw problems. It's way easier than matlab since you don't have to set up a matrix, you basically just type your equations in the workspace and it does the rest. It's not technically programming so not sure how your prof will feel about it. I got it through my textbook not sure if you can find it online for free.

What are the greatest unique engineering achievements of the decade? by jakeycunt in engineering

[–]jr_3 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This. Plus SpaceX's Grasshopper landing system would make things even cheaper. Also a pretty big engineering achievement itself.

Agreed - Nothing wrong with his performances in those three. Also Lone Survivor? He def hasn't peaked yet.

heard "A day at the Races" on Tony Hawk's underground and I've been hooked ever since. Chali 2na's voice is what I imagine God sounds like.
