As much as I'd like to hop aboard the Ubisoft hate train, this is a fair point. Just about every multiplayer game (past, present and future) has had cheaters. Of course, the severity of, and developer response to said cheating are what separate the good games from the bad.This is also why I prefer single player games.
With as many movies and TV episodes I have on my little 4TB fileserver, I must encode . It's also the excuse I used to buy a 5960X.I use MPC-HC on my desktop, but VLC on my MBP. I've heard of MadVR in passing, but never paid much attention... I'll have to check it out.
Does MakeMKV transcode the video or just put it into an .mkv container?
You should download it via Torrent, it looks like their website was hacked again today:
Not at all. It's odd that the only examples I can find online look awful.
Missed this post, so I'm replying out of order...I might be able to get a picture soon, but everything I've used press nuts on is installed in an aircraft currently.I agree, that's a bad example of a press nut. It looks like he de-burred the hole or really messed up when drilling it. There should be no sanding needed; just drill a clean hole, press in the nut and you are good to go.
True, PCs don't vibrate much. Nylocs being re-used depends on who you ask. I've talked with several FAA-certified A&Ps about this and they say it's okay. True, a basic but reliable rivet squeezer starts around the $75 mark, it seems. The arbor press works great, but makes getting to spots near bends difficult.
I've only ever used a plain 'ol rivet squeezer, like the one I posted earlier, which can be found for pretty cheap. I haven't used a setting tool, so I'm not sure what else it does And I didn't think of it until you posted that link for push nuts, but OP could simply use some Nyloc nuts: like a regular, removable nut that won't come loose over time.
The squeezer tool (for lack of a better name, I don't know if there is one) looks like this: The size of the heads allow you work just about anywhere, including the 90 degree lips, but the depth of the hook/claw limits how far in from the edge of a sheet of metal you can go. The press nuts I had in mind look like this: The inner collar slides through a hole in the metal, while the teeth sink part way into the metal when pressed in. They will look like this on the...
For thin sheet metal, you'll want to use self-clinching press nuts, nut plates or rivet nuts, like Lady Fitzgerald posted. Nut plates are the strongest, but stick out the back of the metal a bit and require a lot of surface area to mount. Press nuts are the easiest to install and lowest profile, but can only be installed near the edge of the sheet of metal (because of the limitations of common hand-held squeezing tools). Rivet nuts are also easy to install, but stick...
