  1. OEMs not interested in Nvidia GPP

    Republic of Gamers and Auros are not nVidia brands. They would be using the competition's branding if they were to sell a Republic of Gamers Radeon 1080ti. But they weren't.
  2. Purchases that don't become obsolete

    My backup mouse is a ten year old Intellimouse that still works Optics don't become obsolete. For example, assuming you don't break them, a decent telescope or pair of binoculars will last you, your kids and your grandkids a lifetime.
  3. Does this version support updating an installation on Samsung 900 Pro series nVMe SSDs? The last feature updates failed because the first time runner can't detect the boot sector on the drive.
  4. Need help with "Sift" (grep).

    @CalCalCal You can also use "comm" to compare the contents of two files. You can either find things unique to either file or things that are in both, and the files don't need to be sorted either. As part of gnu-coreutils it should be included as standard on all gnu linux operating systems too.
  5. Is that just the third party liability insurance (Haftpflicht) or fully comprehensive (Vollkasko)? Because the basic 3rd party only insurance (i.e. the one you have to have) shouldn't be more than 700-800 per year even if you're only 20ish and is independent of the car you are driving (the cost is based on your age, SF Class, how long you've been driving for and how much you are driving - i.e. how likely you are to hit something). I really wouldn't bother with fully-comprehensive insurance on a 10+ year old car. Even if you only have the car for a few years it'll cost you more than you'd ever get out of them if the car was totalled. What you can do, is have the car registered to your parents and have you on the insurance as a named third driver. That will cost a fraction of insuring it in your name. Disadvantage is that you don't rack up a no-claims (Schadenfreiheitsklasse) bonus that way. When I started driving I was borrowing my parents' car and it cost about 80 euro per year to put me on their insurance. Right now I'm deciding on a new car. Thinking about something like a Seat Ibiza/Ford Fiesta/Toyota Yaris.
  6. Say I want to run a program from a remote session on my computer (for example I have a script that periodically checks system statistics such as cpu load per core, memory stats, FS i/o etc. when running load simulations and logs them to a file for later analysis). I want this program to run even when I close the terminal that spawned the process (otherwise I need to leave a remote session active and my computer needs to stay turned on for weeks at a time). Thus I need to de-couple it from my terminal.
  7. So put in an hdd with a clean windows installation when handing it over for repair?
  8. The IP in this case isn't just the concept of the game, it's Art assets and so on, but also the code. There are very few products that are a complete green meadow development from companies with pre-existing code. If you were to come into possession of the code for a game, you would very likely also gain access to code that is in the current games of a developer. You could argue that Windows 95 was a niche product that has been discontinued for over two decades , but it would not surprise me if parts of Windows 10 build 1709 contain code from that era (compare the control panels). Microsoft can't give you access to that code.
  9. Even if they have a clause in the eula that would permit this, it would not be legally binding in the EU as private contracts cannot contradict laws. That's why steam has different eulas and ToS for Americans and Europeans.
  10. I can see them being used for htpcs that are completely passively cooled without needing a cubic foot of radiator sitting on the cpu.
  11. Next Scrapyard Wars

    "But can it play Crysis" All hardware that came out after 2010 is banned. FreeGeek is off-limits (because otherwise that's all they would use). Bonus points for using hardware released before 2007 (when Crysis was released) in the final build. The aim is to get as close to 60 FPS at a certain graphics setting (TBD) as possible.
  12. Yeah, Musk has always been that guy who tries to run before he can walk. Trouble is, that he seems to manage it more often than not...
  13. And, if someone explicitly sets up a PIN to control access to a service then the provider should actually require it.
  14. Which one is better to learn, Java or C++?

    Python is quite easy to pick up due to its very human-readable code, however its error messages aren't always the easiest to understand for a rookie.
  15. Quite a few people are having issues with Windows feature updates (1703,1709) not completing the installation with Samsung nVMe ssd as boot drives. They see an 0xc00000bb bug check when the upgrade reboots (cannot access boot device). This is one of the pages I found when trouble shooting the problem myself https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/08485ba0-f69f-483b-861e-238f161dabee/problem-with-upgrade-to-creators-update-on-nvme-disk?forum=win10itprosetup Here is an article on CNET https://www.cnet.com/news/windows-10-fall-creators-update-hits-install-snag-for-some/ Is that the error message you have received?
