  1. Are BLU phones safe?

    Nope, don't trust them. They've been involved in several data-related controversies.
  2. Epic Sues 14 year old for cheating in Fortnite

    You mean "Software should be free", right?
  3. So basically you have no decent arguments and are now resorting to pointing out spelling errors ... despite making a complete and utter mess of your punctuation throughout the thread.
  4. Epic Sues 14 year old for cheating in Fortnite

    That's fairly standard stuff. You should read the EULA for every game or piece of software you "own", most of them will say that you don't actually own it, that you merely have the right to use it until they withdraw that right.
  5. Show off your latest purchase!

    I bought it directly from Netgate themselves. Total with the options I chose was $158, which translated to €129 ... and another €30 in taxes and Customs fees. https://store.netgate.com/SG-1000.aspx Seeing as it is intended as a router and hardware firewall, I would only put it inside your case if your PC is the only machine on your network. Ideally you'd put this in front of your switch.
  6. Ryzen, Spectre, Win10

    I honestly wouldn't bother with the MS tool. InSpectre is so much better. Can't reply on your actual question though, I'm still on Has-E and TBH I'm not really worried about either Spectre or Meltdown for now.
  7. Metal Thread May 2k18

    Waiting for the new Ghost album. They said it was all going to be really dark, but the first song turned out to be quite catchy. Also hoping for a new Sabaton album. It's been 2 years since The Last Stand. And let's not forget about the new Priest album. That will also be played quite a bit at casa Chaos.
  8. The issue with that is that what may seem innocent and good now may not always be considered that. Even simple things like your religion can be used against you if the wrong people get into power. I don't consider myself overly paranoid, but I'd rather not have the government or corporate entities know anything more about me than is strictly necessary. As for strong leadership, that's a bit of an issue nowadays. We can only hope things will get better eventually.
  9. Police in winter weather

    Not over here, even if it were to snow enough. Firstly such modifications are illegal here (some are allowed if the manufacturer approves them, but anything involving changed tire diameter is just flat-out forbidden) Secondly they'll just look up cameras in the neighborhood to find footage of your truck, write down the license plate and either send you a fine or an invitation to appear before a judge.
  10. PC3-12800U is 1600MHz no matter the brand. The model number (M378B5773QB0-CK0) does check out with Samsung's 2GB DDR3-1600 non-ecc RAM. Basically it looks legit.
  11. Bullshit Everyone has stuff to hide. Every day you make several decisions on what you tell to certain people and what to others. There's always something you don't want other people to know.
  12. Every day I'm earning money, every day I'm earning money, every day I'm earning money, every day I'm earning money, every day I'm earning money, every day I'm earning money, every day I'm earning money, every day I'm earning money,
  13. Clueless about monitors, need help please.

    Tough choice. 1440p has so much more detail than 1080p, but then again 1080p 144Hz is smoother if you lower the eyecandy enough to actually get those framerates. Personally given these choices and with those games, I'm tempted to lean towards the 1440p resolution more than to the high refresh rate. But that's more a matter of personal preference, not because one is decidedly better than the other. If I were to go for the 1440p monitor, I'd try to overclock it a little though. My previous monitors were 1080p 60Hz and I ran them at 75Hz for years without issues. But that all depends on how far your monitor will go, some can't be overclocked at all.

    Netgate SG-1000 pfSense router, with the optional mounting bracket. My current D-link router is running on the “latest” firmware … which is from 2010. I figured it was time to replace it. I have a 4-port switch to attach to this router, but I already have 4 cables plugged into it and will need an extra port if I want to add a wireless access point. So I'll need to get a bigger switch ... and the access point itself. I’ll get those sometime next week. For now I’m watching Mark Furneaux’ videos on pfSense to get an idea what I’ve gotten myself into.
  15. And you really believe that's all the info they actually have?
