  1. By that logic, Apple and the gnu/Linux distributions should stop issuing updates too, because their total market share is even lower.
  2. That'll last me a good while The blue one is over 40 euro a bottle; not going to be knocking it back
  3. I thought I'd stock up the spirits cabinet with some gin
  4. Yeah, Android still has issues with power management. Every android phone I've used has gotten hot, and had abnormally high battery usage by idle apps. It's not even always the same app either, sometimes it is android core, sometimes it is Firefox or Chrome, or Skype or some other application. I've had this happen on my old LG, an HTC desire, oneplus one, nexus 6p, Samsung s7 Edge, galaxy a7 and a few others. It's one of the reasons why I am strongly considering getting an iPhone this autumn.
  5. I don't see how you can say it is better for Defender to remain inactive and there to be zero protection for the computer until you reactivate your AV (which automatically deactivates Defender)
  6. You're more secure than having no protection at all (which is what Kaspersky is complaining about).
  7. Surely bouncing your connection around TOR and hoping to get an exit node on the same continent as the target service is just as slow, if not slower, than a commercial VPN service?
  8. Yeah, the motherboard only has a single 8 pin, just looked up the part. https://www.asus.com/Commercial-Servers-Workstations/Z8NAD6/
  9. Does that power supply even have the right power connectors? Some dual-socket motherboards want more than a single 8 pin CPU power cable and most power supplies only have one. The OP has 5650s. Might need more power.
  10. Wasn't the "X" suffix reserved for the top-end processor?
  11. To be fair, if you have a shitty TN panel next to a 10 bit VA or IPS panel then the graphics will look better on the latter
  12. Given that it costs 2000 dollars (i.e. four times as much!) I'd bloody well expect it to... Of course, the X299 platform is more bloated than a dead whale decomposing on a beach so who knows what'll happen next with Intel.
  13. If you want to use acetone to dissolve the glue, make sure to test it on a hidden part of the PSU to make sure it doesn't dissolve any silkscreen or paint that is on the PSU casing. Be sure to do so in a well-ventilated area or outside and don't inhale the vapours (while not dangerously toxic, in high quantities they can cause problems if inhaled).
  14. A local administrator user can take ownership of the folders that belong to microsoft account users.
  15. I guess nVidia it is then.
