  1. I doubt that I'll be buying any PC parts within the next few years. My 3700X and GTX 1070 are overkill for most of what I do, my 1080p screens are both adequate, if I ever really need extra storage I still have some (old) spare 1TB and 2TB HDD, the case is effectively future proof (SLI RTX 3090 would have ample airflow) and I bought a high quality PSU a few years ago. Pretty much excluding a freak hardware failure, I have no need to buy new parts for years.

    Which means that any extra money goes towards improving my workshop area and getting car parts/learning skills to re-manufacture them (cheaper and easier long term).

  2. 7 years ago my Mum was able to use her Asus Transformer Prime TF201 as a full on laptop - even though she had an Asus U38N as her actual laptop. You need to realise that for nearly 10 years now, when you talk about phones and productivity, you have devices far more like traditional laptops that run the very same software as a mobile phone. Windows or Android, trying to excuse blatantly anti-competitive and monopolistic behaviour is to be blunt - lunacy. Especially when MS have already lost a lawsuit over IE and Windows 9X for doing the same very thing (just not has heavy handed as
  3. I already knew that the updated model would have better cooling, with the decreased exhaust temperature..
  4. Luckily for me I was one of the people who didn't have problems with the update. That being said - you should always setup your PC as if the drive where Windows is installed is disposable. Far too many bugs and issues have arrived after an update to do otherwise.
  5. I'm still seeing the odd new-old stock IBM XT appearing for sale (or unboxed on Youtube), so humidity+temperature depending - several decades.
  6. My tablets USB C port is too slow to handle a 1080p screen, and even with a 45W PD 3.0 capable charger...it loses charge when powered through my new hub. The TabPro S checks a lot of feature boxes, but 5 years after it was manufactured - it is really starting to get over the hill.

  7. My GTX 1070's power usage today only peaked 17W higher than that of my 3700X, which is currently in Eco mode. The games I mainly play really don't ask much of the hardware.

  8. How to fix a brake light:

    1. replace a blown bulb
    2. swap some fuses around
    3. repair all of the wiring
    4. cry inside when they still don't work
    5. kick them hard
    6. see them start working again.

      So that's what they meant when they said brake light fluid

  9. Vista upgraded to SP2 on my Presario CQ60, installed Roxio Easy CD&DVD creator 6 (from Presario R3000), error message popped up saying that it was incompatible, I ignored it...and the driver installed as part of the program temporarily broke Vista. Less than 10 minutes with the Windows disc, and Vista is repaired and working again. I have to re-install Oblivion though.

  10. You know streaming distribution is screwed when a completely Australian film is only available on US streaming sites, and also only digitally available in the US as well. Especially if the films were only successful in Australia and bombed everywhere else.

  11. When I have the money - I'm going for an 4TB NVME SSD, and 2TB upgrade for my 512GB SSD. With all HDD disconnected my PC boots a lot faster and is even more responsive - even though I bought off an NVME SSD.

      All SSD is where it's at tbh, if I ever end up being able to replace my current PC I'm going right to a 512ishGB NVMe boot drive and a 4TB SATA game drive (unless big dick NVMe drives get down to roughly the same price/TBW as an 870 QVO 👀).


      I'm just so done with having to deal with HDDs as game drives at this point.

  12. That's also after Blue Origin got over 500mil from the US government, and SpaceX got well under 200mil.
  13. If this is true, this is ammo to use against Amazon, in regards to fraud. At least from what I know.
