    Valve being taste police despite promising not to

    Thread locked Discussing something is one thing, but being aggressive, going around and accusing others of crimes and other things, then stalking them online, posting people's IP and going "vigilante" on them is not acceptable. Some accounts were banned, harrassment isn't something we're going to tolerate, regardless of the subject being discussed. You're not happy about that? Then GTFO.
  2. Saw a few videos about the RX 590 ... and I was wondering why 2 of them called it "fatboy".


    Then I watched the Hardware Unboxed video and saw it's the actual name for it! 🤣

      No one seemed particularly enthused that they had to say it out loud.

      They should have spelled it "phatboy" ;)

      SSD prices have come a long way down. When I built my first "modern" gaming PC 5 years ago, I bought a Samsung 840 128GB (which I'm still using today), and it was $98 at the time, I believe. Now, you can get a good performing 120GB SSD for $40 or less, brand new.

      @MEC-777 Bought a 240GB SandDisk for $75 a few years ago and that was cheap (Black Friday purchase), the Samsung Evo's were around $120-130 if I remember right ... for 240GB !!!


      I happen to have a $50 CanadaComputer gift card and while I don't need a new SDD, I'm still tempted! :P

      Yeah, I know now, going forward, any new build I do for personal use will be SSD only. Nice that prices have reached the point where going all SSDs won't destroy your bank account anymore. :P Even M.2's are cheap now.

    So... how's Canada? ^^

    Ah great then. If you can, look for something in the Ontario "regions" (far from the big cities) since there's a shortage. But be prepared for some harsh winters! EDIT : @Nicnac not sure how to say that in English, since here in Québec (French), when we talk about smaller communities we say "en région" (in regional area). Those smaller cities have a big job shortage. Though be careful with living cost, because even if you can find lots of listing around (but not in) Toronto, there's a big chance housing is still going to be expensive!

    So... how's Canada? ^^

    I would first look at what province would recognize your diploma first, unfortunately it seems there isn't much equivalence, or help with that. Not familiar with the health care system, but seeing as my wfie hard a very hard time becoming an engineer here in Canada, I would be surprised if it was easier for the medical field.
  10. @columbusohio Check your local schools and see if they have spares C2D or C2Q machine they're looking to get rid of. Usually business or school will have to pay to get rid of those old computers, so giving them away is a better option. I and others I know got free C2D and C2Q SFF machines that way (and that was like 3 or 4 years ago).

    Windows 7 Bash Script

    You need to use the "start /wait" command in front of the msctsc, and a log off command after that ... something like that ; start /wait *application you need to run* Shutdown -L

    Ghetto Intel Core i7 from CHINA for $100!!

    My wife is currently in China, and I was thinking about asking her to get me one of those (I still have 2 or 3 Haswell systems). Since she can buy directly I wouldn't have to pay shipping or extra custom fees ... hmmmm
