Do You Want a Wooden Phone Case?This Small South African Company Might Just Have It!

Houdt

A small company started as a college project turned into one of the best wooden case manufacturers in RSA. This small yet awesome company has given us a great and quality product! They seem to understand how to price products because for the price of these cases I can promise you ,you won’t find anything similar in this price class!

I personally own one of these cases and i must say for the past 17H that I’ve had it, it still is freaking awesome!!

My unboxing video! 

They have many options to what wood you want to use to the type of phones you want to protect! The coolest part is the fact that they do custom vector engravings ! The photos you see up top are setup as follows:

  • Cherry-wood
  • IPhone 6s cover
  • Custom spider-web engraving!_DSC01340000.jpg

What does one of these price at?

Most of the cases are around R450 and for a custom engraving one it’s up to R600! These prices are so good for the product you receive!

Tips:

  • You need a VECTOR-BASED graphic
  • Don’t Overlay your image over their template(I did This *face-palms*)

Recommendation Rating:

85% recommended by me! I haven’t had this cover for too long so I can’t say it’s a 100% quality product … yet 😉

Composition : How a Shooter’s Position Affects the Image

This is well written and really opens your eyes!

The Eclectic Shooter

Photographic composition, in a simple statement, can be described as arranging (in the viewfinder) the different elements of an image so that they combine an aesthetically pleasing and balanced arrangement for the whole of the image.

Composition is often a subjective process but there some ‘rules’ that one should follow.  I hope to present and demonstrate some of these rules over time.

At this time, let’s take a look at position.  This is not the position of the subject since there are a) many subjects that cannot be moved and, in many cases, b) the whole of the image involves more than just the subject.  We are talking about the position of the photographer.

I was going through my shots of Princess Louise Falls, from which I took the shot for Princess Louise Falls, and found what I think are some good examples of how one’s position and angle…

Should You Buy: Dirt 4?

Dirt 4:

So this AAA title is widely know  as one of the best rally games to release this year but is it worth it?

What is Dirt 4 about?

This game is simple to understand.It’s a racing game based on the Rally side of the racing scenes.So if off-roading is your thing then you would like this game!So basically you are a new driver getting into rally racing and you start of racing for other teams and as you progress you can start your own team and build your own cars.

A Few Things I Nerd Out About!

The graphics on this game are insane! Each time I play I’m impressed again.The next thing is the extensive settings you can change to make the driving experience unique!The levels also get randomly generated which makes it so re-playable in the long run! Next is the fact that the things that you do effect the crew or teams you are working with, how cool is that??? Sucks if you are me and crash a lot but still a cool feature! The cars actually break and wear! I’ve gotten flats and worn clutches which just made the experience all the more real and cool!

Is It Any Fun?

Oh hell yes!This is one of the hardest and most entertaining racing games I’ve ever come across. The simulation setting makes you think about how you drive thus immersing you in the experience!The different game-modes like “rally” ,”rally-cross” etc are soooooo FUN! 

Things You Might Want Before Getting The Game!

A controller or some type wheel I would highly recommend because keyboards and racing games don’t mix all too well! A decent GPU would also be beneficial so that you can push every last pixel of this amazing game! Patience is a big one because this is a hard game and takes some time to get used to.

Tips For First Time Players!

  • Do the dirt academy 
  • Play around in free roam for a while
  • Test cars and different tracks to get to know how each game works!
  • Just screw around and enjoy some drifting or jumping the car as far as you can!

Fun Fact:

Ken Block the driver in the Gym Khana series helped to tune the simulation in the game to get it as close to what it feels like to him in real life as they could! Pretty cool if you don’t know who he is go to youtube and search his videos!

My Recommendation:

Buy this game it’s not that expensive and it will give you hours of fun and joy! The game is well designed and get’s a decent amount of updates and we should be seeing some DLC or something soon to keep the hardcore-gamers interested! SO GO AND PLAY IN THE DIRT 4!

Why Do Super-Computers Need To Be So Cold?

DISCLAIMER: I am by no means qualified  for you to be able to use any of what I said as facts it’s merely a rough perspective!

First Let’s Understand How Computers Process!

Think of a normal computer and the way it thinks as the wall of a castle.The top block formations are one oscillation and the bottom one are another.The top represents the quartz crystal in your CPU that is “on” and the bottom is when it’s “off”.castle wall.jpg

The “on” state represents a one to the PC and the “off” a zero.We don’t need to go into depth on this now just remember the shape of the castle wall!

Ignore the math and the words just remember the red lines!So “up” is on and “down” is off. Simple enough!

How Do Super-Computers Process?

They work on the same diagram(For explanation purposes I’m keeping it simple) but they do a type of processing that’s known as “Quantum-processing”

So to keep it simple let’s investigate the word. Processing we know that’s easy

Quantum has a variation of the word “quad” in it so that means 4, correct? So basically instead of getting and processing data on just on or off this process can do multiple and more complex problems because it has four points of which it can process.Just stay with me this is getting complex now but you are doing well so far!

So back to the red line and castle-wall.This process also uses the top and bottom of the diagram but it can also use the sides!Thus it uses on and off as well as “going on” and “going off”.

So Why Do They Need To Be So Cold?

As we all know by now CPUs are extremely small and because these ones work on a quantum level they need to be kept cool so the quantum effect they use to determine the signals like ” going on” and ” going off” don’t get effected by quantum heat effects that could disrupt the data and lead it to be useless.

So basically they use quantum effects to generate the computer signals and for those signals to be accurate the need to be chilled a hell of a lot so heat induced quantum signals don’t mess up the data.So it’s to keep interference out!

Why Do Normal PCs Not Need To Be So Cool?

IMG_2354.JPG

In normal PCs cooler parts just mean a longer lifespan and better performance because you can overclock a fair bit more with decent cooling!The materials and the way the work are different and thus their requirements differ however PCs and the silicon they are made of have an optimal operating temperature thus they don’t need to be cooler than room temperature to function properly and they can go as high as 90 degrees Celsius before it starts to become a real big problem!
