    The Original Steel LAN Shelf - LTX 2019

    Or use the floor
  2. My 10 year old workstation still hammers along nicely. Dual Xeon X5570, GTX650, 16GB Hyper-x memory, 240GB WD green boot SSD, 240GB TCSUNBOW cheap ass SSD for game data and anything I can replace and a Samsung 1TB mechanical HDD. Monitor is a now decade old Acer v243H with a Goodmans 1080i 24 inch TV as a second display. Apart from having a power supply sitting on top as the original one has faulty capacitors it's a great machine.
  3. It comes out a few days later when the merchant does a batch capture, you've still effectively paid before shipping though.
  4. Wouldn't suprise me though. Am I right in thinking that in the US if you are taken to court and win, you still pay your own legal costs?
  5. There was a case of a UK car insurer a few years back having a glitch regarding modifications. Any policy that had braided brake lines as a modification was quoted at the same price (something like £190). They cancelled every policy that had braided brake lines on and refunded the customers. Customers had no legal standing as a seller has as much right to cancel a contract as a buyer, especially when you get an insurance quote of £1000 for example, and it suddenly goes down to £190. Amazon at least in the UK can cancel the orders before delivery and give a refund.

    What does gas/petrol cost where you're located?

    You can flip a Landrover if you try hard enough If treated like a 3 wheeler they're pretty stable. No braking on fast/sharp corners, turn in smoothly, keep light power on round corners and leave some weight in the back. The damn thing weighs less than it's carrying capacity. I tow trailers with mine, one of them is a former mark 2 Robin. As much fun as it is, I prefer my old Alfa. It has climate control and generally doesn't let hailstones through every rubber seal there is, oh and out of the heater vents. Also it starts without issue, and the doors close properly, and it drinks a bit less oil.

    1999 Reliant Robin, I put 10 litres of fuel in about 3 weeks ago and need to consider doing the same again within the next week or so

    Doesn't matter, I can push 100 MPG in my car
  12. Quick google search says you need a licence for public highways. Looking at how restrictive it is I'm glad I don't live there. A dead chimp could pass the test, and your permit only lasts a few years and how long depends on how much you pay.

    Easy to do, real sodding easy.

    Windows 10 1903 breaks VPN connections if you have telemetry disabled

    I have no issues at all
  16. Isn't buying an iPhone a waste of time to start with?
  17. Are the tech support scam exposing videos next? I mean, they do teach you how to scam clueless computer users.

    ISP Charging Fee for Customer-Owned Equipment

    It's great isn't it. We get pretty cheap deals compared to *some* places and they throw hardware in with it. Not to mention the choice we have on who provides the service and over what medium. I've got more routers and fibre modems than I have uses for.

    Mint Linux also removing 32-bit support

    One more reason to keep using Windows then. Ah well.
  20. Sending financial data unsecured IS illegal, even storing it offline is illegal if not protected. The DPA/GDPR gives provisions for compensation to be paid out in the event of data breeches if it proven that the breech has caused problems. Even an incorrect address tarnishing an otherwise perfect credit score would be enough reason for compensation if it was the cause of a hiked interest rate or a mortgage refusal. Anyway, not hard to get around this really. Messaging app that hooks into a phone's SMS functions. All messages are encyrpted with 4096 bit RSA keys that are generated and displayed as a QR code that the other party has to scan, and then the process is reversed. 2 keys, 100% offline and no fucker is going to get around it.

    FDA Canine Heart Issue Linked to Food

    Maybe the government should step in, make it a legal requirement to ensure that pet food is actually giving the animal what it needs. Here pet food is more tightly regulated than what is fit for human consumption.

    NANDpocalypse - 6 Exabytes lost

    You could take half of these guys to a fab and show them how it works and they'll still scream that it's all a lie to increase the cost.

    NANDpocalypse - 6 Exabytes lost

    It takes 6 weeks to go from crystal to finished product in a hermetically sealed environment. You can't just half finish a wafer and store it in the shed out back, once started they have to be completed and as that takes about 6 weeks, they loose 6 weeks of product.

    NANDpocalypse - 6 Exabytes lost

    Well it takes about 6 weeks from start to finish to produce silicon chips, 12 weeks in a quarter, you do the maths. It's a production line with all stages running at the same time, if a power outage affects the entire production line then everything from the crystals to the not-yet packaged devices are scrap. If a power outage affected PCB assembly, anything that was at the pick and place stage would need to be started over, anything being reflowed may need to be scrapped as there is thermal profiles to adhere to. Why the fuck does everything in the world need to be a conspiracy? No wonder shit for brains like Alex Jones get attention
