Who to Ban in "Nexus Blitz"?
Wed, 12 Dec 2018 08:08:28 +0000

Nexus Blitz is a special League of Legends game mode that uses a map that I would say is somewhat similar to the Twisted Treeline map. It features two push lanes and a jungle. The jungle is split between a bigger area at the top of the map and a smaller area between the two lanes. The game assigns three laners and two junglers; the latter are equipped with smite automatically.

Unlike the other League of Legends game modes in the past, where I can easily identify ban candidates, I really have not thought of any champions that is OP in this particular game mode.

So most of the time, I just ban Yasuo--not for any map or game mode reasons--because he is tough on the two squishy champions I like to play--Tristana and Veigar.

Can you think of any champions worthy of banning in Nexus Blitz? Tell us the champion and the reason why you'd ban it, using the comment boxes below.

idrive for TorqueMaster is Temperature Sensitive
Sun, 02 Dec 2018 20:32:33 +0000

I took Ken's lead about warming it up. I mounted a utility lamp below the drive so the heat would rise and keep the drive warm. Voila, what a difference. I added a small towel on the drive to reduce lost heat. This fix works so far down to minus 10 C were as it would quit before at plus 8 C. See my photo for the set up I am now using. The door works almost flawlessly, only a very rare stoppage part way up, rarely...
Thanks to Ken for the idea to warm the drive. I had been blaming the tightness of the door in cold weather. I seems the drive needs to be warmed to work. Thanks Ken... I have attached a photo below... now a happy guy (a wife is too)
Be sure to reply if you too have success.

Fortnite: Team Rumble Tips
Wed, 28 Nov 2018 01:53:14 +0000

This limited time mode is very similar to the Food Fight LTM and the Disco Domination LTM. It has unlimited respawn, you keeps your weapons when respawning, and you battle it out until a goal is reached.

It's also 20v20, so there plenty of loot. Because of the respawn, there is no need for bandages and med-packs. And shield potion, slurp juice, and chug jug are secondary to picking up weapons.

I, personally, prefers to load up on grenades and explosives to become a demolition expert. Then I carry one rifle of some kind, hopefully a scoped rifle. Then I just unload all the explosives on the enemy until I'm out. Then I switch to the rifle.

What are your tips?

Error Upgrading Ubuntu 16.04 LTS to 18.04 LTS
Tue, 27 Nov 2018 00:37:55 +0000

I am having trouble upgrading Ubuntu 16.04 LTS in a virtual machine to Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. I'm using the automated upgrade process inside Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. After it starts, when it get to "Setting new software channels", it errors out as shown in the screen shot below.

It claims that "A problem occurred durig the update. This is usually some sort of network problem, please check your network connection and retry." I'm on the network and has no network problems. I retried several times with the same result.

Anyone know what's causing this problem?

Fortnite: Food Fight Tips
Thu, 22 Nov 2018 23:30:17 +0000

Food Fight is like Disco Domination where you re-spawn over and over again in each game. Since you don't lose your weapon when you die, it's best to collect the best ones right at the beginning of the game before the wall comes down. Once you collected your guns, run for the headquarter and take out the enemies.

Not much to loot in this mode. After collecting a gun or two, it's time to move on and take out anyone around you. No need to focus on opening all the chests. Best thing to loot in this game are the dynamites. Chuck them relentlessly. LOL

SketchUp 2015 Makes White Boxes When Selecting Objects
Sun, 18 Nov 2018 01:27:53 +0000

Whenever I select objects in SketchUp 2015, it shows a serious of white boxes on the screen that lingers until I let go of the mouse button. I attached a screen shot to show the symptom.

I just tried SketchUp 2017 and it doesn't have this problem. I prefer to use SketchUp 2015 to be backward compatible and I haven't needed the new features in 2017 yet. Well, maybe this problem is a reason to move up.

Something tell me it's graphics processor related. I have this problem on Nvidia 660M and Nvidia GTX 1050. But don't have this problem on a laptop with Nvidia 560M.

Any idea how I can eliminate this problem with SketchUp 2015?

Alarm No Longer Works on Google Home
Wed, 14 Nov 2018 17:39:04 +0000

Google Home alarm is quite unreliable now. At around 2:30 AM, I set three alarms--8:30 AM, 8:45 AM, and 9 AM. None of the alarms went off this morning. 😤

Pick Med-Kit Over Bandages

Loot is abundant in Team Terror. Carry up to 3 med-kits, in one slot, to heal you and your team mates up completely is way more useful than 15 bandages.

Does Elegoo Ender 3 Nozzle Have a White PTFE Tube Liner?
Sat, 03 Nov 2018 04:05:07 +0000

Thanks to @LetsPrint_3D for the following tweet:

"@Cynosure_X_Gab I was just notified of your tweet to @Elegoo_Official about PETG printing temps and PTFE lined hotends. Despite what they said, if the heatbreak does in fact have PTFE liner, do NOT exceed 245°C without an all metal hotend (most PETG does print fine around 240C)"

Replacing the Filament on your FDM 3D Printer
Wed, 10 Oct 2018 02:25:23 +0000

I had been a FDM 3D printer newbie. Just got my Elegoo Ender 3 printer a few weeks ago. But I had already gone through a whole spool of PLA filaments. Like many of us 3D printer enthusiasts, I also gotten PETG filament and want to try a few others. But I had no clues about how to change filaments. And asking around and searching around gave me few results. My friend personally told me that it's a pain to change filaments. And so I've been sticking to the PLA filament this whole time. And when I used it up, I finally pushed in the PETG filament.

After using the PETG filament for only a week, I decided that it's just too much trouble. I'm able to get much stronger PLA prints. And playing around PETG settings gotten me no where. So I really want to switch back.

Today, a light bulb came on in my head. And I realized that changing the filament is really quite easy. I tried it and was able to swap back to the PLA filament in only a few minutes.

The trick really comes down to heating up the nozzle so that the filament can be easily pulled out of the print head and the feeding system. Prior to this method, the next simplest method was to cut the filament at the feeder, and print a small item to switch to the new filament. So this idea that finally came to my head makes the filament change almost instant.

On the Elegoo Ender 3, you go into "Menu" -> "Control" -> "Temperature" -> "Nozzle" and set it to a temperature that could melt the filament you had been using. So going from PETG to PLA means you set the temperature to something like 245 degrees. Then once the 3D printer is at temperature, just release the filament feeder and pull the filament back out.

When you make your first print with the new filament, be sure to clear out the previous filament that is in the nozzle. You'll have to print a really small item that can melt the previous filament.
