  1. I'm not sure a plug in hybrid is less complex, they are more of a so complex you shouldn't touch with 60 foot pole outside of warranty kind of car. EVs should be simpler and more reliable, though the greater weight is probably harder on the suspension than an equivalent ICE car. Maintenance costs overall should still come out in favour of the EV though. Plug in hybrids, all the weight of the EV with the complexity of both an EV and ICE powertrain. Going back to the original question, in most cases probably better to keep using old stuff for as long as it works. Though t
  2. Depends on the beans and how they are treated. Some are lovely at 90%, some are like eating soil.
  3. I guess even if it's evidence they couldn't present in court, it may let them know who they should be looking for evidence on, and in extreme cases who belongs on a terrorist watch list. It's such weapons grade incompetence it's almost like it was intentional, like Parler was set up by the 'other side' to one day leak all this stuff.
  4. They are great for typing, as long as there is no one nearby to disturb with the noise. For gaming though the mouse is so much more important, so if you can only afford one get the fancy gaming mouse.
  5. I guess if you really want lots of space to swing your mouse around. Full sized > TKL > 60%> whatever this is. Obviously you would need a proper keyboard too. TBH I'm considering going to a 2 keyboard setup. It's not an outrageous idea to have a board for gaming and one for everything else, though if both boards were either wireless or used a detachable USB-C cable it would be much more useable. Not sure I'd pick that over a 60 or 65% board though.
  6. Do you really want to use the same device on your face as you do on your balls?
  7. Yeah, in these comparisons some people forget how much bigger Rockstar is than CDPR. Also, so many aspects of Cyberpunk are first attempts for CDPR, it would be unreasonable to expect GTA V levels of polish. There are clearly things CDPR fucked up, and on the consoles, fucked up badly. It clearly wasn't ready for release, but they are continuing to work on it. I believe they are still aiming for big patches in Jan & Feb, we should calm the fuck down and see what state the game in is after the Feb patch. I have faith they will fix it eventually. They are planning mul
  8. On one hand yes, things are looking pretty bleak for at least the first three months. But we do have vaccines now, this third wave should be the last, so a little hope is in order. I reckon we could be largely back to normal by July, with the possible exception of international travel.
  9. Though it's when you give an enthusiastic rendition of Gloria Gaynor's I will survive, that you really create a memorable impression.
  10. I'd suggest an Old Fashioned Recipe It will add a touch of class to your zoom meeting.
  11. Everything. I never use the front panel audio, but it would bug me if I knew it didn't work.
  12. Crashing to desktop makes me think it's more likely software than hardware related. Search for event viewer in Windows, and under windows logs look for any errors. I'd also uninstall, reboot, then reinstall your graphics drivers.
  13. Do you have a PC gaming friend to swap parts out with for testing? What are the nature of the crashes? Crash to desktop? Or does it require a reboot?
  14. This is what happens when you keep putting off doing something until the last possible minute, even when you've had 4.5 years to work on it. Muppets.
  15. I guess it will depend very much on the nature of the disaster. A pandemic (a much more fatal one that the current one) would be relatively quick to recover from, as long as there is enough survivors to avoid inbreeding issues. A total environmental collapse, would be far trickier as food supply would be very restricted for many decades. Plus likely far less habitable land remaining with resulting conflict. I'd say the big issue for a recovery in the event of societal collapse, is that so much information is held on servers, and could well be lost and quickly rendered i
