  1. Ample practice. Apollo Pro 133A was damn near perfect from my experience. And they dominated for a while when Intel tried to persist with chipsets that only worked with RAMBUS.
  2. My Mum didn't lose any work from her old laptop because of Linux being so forgiving. Turns out the damaged/destroyed sectors (as in physically - head crash) causing Windows to crash were holding programs from the downloads folder. Nothing of actual importance.
  3. Linux also lets me get files off damaged HDD which cause Windows to freeze when accessed...Linux is far more forgiving to HW problems.
  4. That points towards it being a HW issue. Even my Asus F3L (runs W10 like shit, barely any driver support) can install 1909. Not sure what it would be though as your SSD isn't old, and my older desktops & laptops HW still runs Windows as they're supposed to.
  5. It just works on my Grandmother's laptop, and even before the upgrade from a Pentium 4200 (that couldn't go above 1.83GHz, even though its a 2GHz CPU) to Core 2 Duo T9400, it ran Windows 10 just fine. In fact it has less issues than my old laptop with an A8 4555M (on another note, 45nm Pentium and C2D run Windows 10 far far better than their preceding 65nm counterparts).
  6. I did a sin. Bought Fallout 76 for $23. And just at the character creation screen...holy shit this is stripped back. Right back to Oblivion and Fallout 3 we had far more customisation.

  7. Don't deflect by saying "but others". Comparing older Macbooks to current ones, especially the G3. Far more flaws while being more expensive than the G3. And indeed more expensive than competitors that cost the same and less (without the flaws). New Mackbook Pro may fix some of those problems (eg. thermals, bad key switches) so we'll have to wait and see. But until it is on shelves world wide, the Powerbook G3 is still the best.
  8. Well...they didn't have the plague of design flaws found in newer+far more expensive machines...
  9. If your budget can't stretch to a 3700x, the 3600 would still be a significant upgrade as well. Even for me it'd be a big upgrade over my 4790K (though currently swapped for my friends i7 4770 - better for ARK servers)
  10. Thing with the i740, it was effectively OEM bait, due to it being designed to rely more on system memory than vRAM, making it cheaper and simpler, while also knee capping its performance (at least it certainly didn't help).
  11. They bumped the price of my Logitech F310 from $25 to $50. And new PS4 controllers...still $100. My 3DS (new but not new if you get what I mean) was fucking cheaper than that. Then again, EB also sells second hand consoles at higher prices than other retailers sell them new with games so they really should be avoided. Limited Battlefront 1TB PS4 for $50 less than a second hand 500GB... Ever had a friend go to throw out an Xbox controller...then you spend around $5 on an adaptor for it?
  12. I finally bought a 3DS today. Not only that, but via a tool (Windows is limited to 32GB fat 32 partitions - it actually supports up to 2TB) I was able to format it as fat32, so my DS can use it the same as it does standard cards (if it hadn't worked, it'd be stuck with an 8MB or 512MB card)

  13. Still...the were still having significant issues rolling it out 4 years ago. We're probably still far behind even Greece: https://www.itnews.com.au/news/aussie-telcos-struggling-with-ipv6-adoption-398240 That sentence there is what we're already seeing with our current internet. They'll be dragging their heels for as long as possible in the search for all the money.
  14. I think we'll be having some problems when we run out of iPv4 addresses: https://ipv6-test.com/stats/country/AU Our router actually has full support for it (it isn't dumbed down like our old Helstra one), but on Vodafone's end...not so much. Even over the NBN.
