  • Stop windows 10 updates turning on monitor at night?

    When my windows 10 PC updates at night, it turns the screen on and wakes me up at night. I do not want to change active hours as i use it at different times throughout the day. I only want updates at night when i am asleep. Also, i dont wantt to completely disable updates. And i dont want to always have to push the button to turn my monitor on and off all the time. Does anyone else have this problem?

    and how do i fix it?

  • Best low profile graphics card under £20/$20?

    Hi, I'm wanting to get a graphics card for my OptiPlex 3040 SFF. There's not a lot of room in it for a graphics card so I am limited to low profile cards. Theres 1* PCIe1 and PCIe 16 slot. ideally, I want HDMI or DP link.

    My main question is, would any graphics card, no matter how much memory or speed it has boost the performance of my PC. Even by a little. My pc currently uses intel HD 530 integrated graphics. Would a 1gb DDR3 card boost the graphics load times/performance noticeably when playing Minecraft/web browsing?

    for example:

    How to remove this shiny part on brass?

    Please see my attached image. There was some corrosion on the top left of this compact mirror. I used a dremmel to polish it off but the polished area is far brighter than the rest of the compact which is a darker, warmer colour. The entire compact has lacquer on it so it's not just darkened with contact to air. I'm wondering if it had an extra coating, perhaps a dark lacquer on it or something similar. 

    Does anyone know how I can get the polished area darker yet still shiny so it matches the rest of the metal

  • what to include in a dissertation literature review?

    Hi all, im writing my dissertation about the design risks of UAVs (what about their design is a risk).  im a UK undergrad.

     

    I know what im writing about in my findings and analysis section but im a little confused about my literature review. 

     

    Should the literature review cover the sources that I am using in my dissertation (ie introducing the sources I have used, talking about why I have used them and talking about their methodology) 

    OR 

    Should the literature review address the arguments I have found relating to the general topic of UAV risk as a whole (ie - 'A' says that drones are a high risk whereas 'b' says otherwise) - these sources wont necessarily be used in the rest of my dissertation. 

    and also, do the sources in my Lit Review have to be mentioned later in my dissertation

  • can DJI drones fly above 400ft?

    In the UK and USA the altitude limit is 400ft. I am wondering, is there a software limit preventing flight above this? or is this entirely down to the pilot flying the drone. Also, DJI drones have altitude limits, the MAVIC 2 at 500m for example. Is this because of software preventing it, or the hardware limitations?

  • whats the word for something that increases a risk?

    By risk I mean the likelihood of the accident and the severity of the accident. But what are them individual factors called that increase the risk? is there even a definition? for example....

    the risk of a airplane crashing. The risk would be increased if it was not serviced properly, piloted by pilots without much training or prone to accidents. 

    What would each of these "contributing factors" be called?

  • Rate my drone dissertation topic?

    Hi,  

     

    I have to do a dissertation about "aviation engineering risk".  

     

    I'd like to cover drones and I am thinking about looking at the risks associated with drone engineering and the danger that this poses to other forms of aviation. 

     For example: 

     

    Geofencing: is it enough to keep drones away from airports and should it be a mandatory requirement for all drones 

     

    The capabilities of drones: are they too much? are the range and height capabilities creating a higher risk 

     

    Structure: is a more impact absorbent design needed to minimise damage on impacts 

     

    software: is it reliable, what would the consequences be to aircraft if it failed/got hacked? 

     

    Is this a good choice of subject or how could I change it to make it better/refine it? 

     

    thanks
