  1. The logitech keyboard has a non standard 1.5u ctrl key and a 5.75u spacebar. I've seen some keycap sets with 1.5u ctrl keys (rare) but I've never seen a 5.75u spacebar. That's the impossible one.

  3. Lamp Calculator Mouse/keyboard Pens/pencils Water bottle Slightly unrelated but If your keyboard has a detachable cable, a magnetic cable makes a huge difference. Keyboard in the way? Just chuck it somewhere, cable detaches right away.
  4. I ended up taking a small ~30mb file and copied it several times into a folder. Then copied that folder several times into another folder, etc to fill up the space. I just discovered that Mac OS 9.1 (and earlier versions) isn't Unix based so there's no terminal.
  5. That did the trick! Looks like I needed to bring it below 1gb free for it to install.
  6. I'll give that a shot. It's going to take some time, transfer speeds are less than 1mb/s from usb lol.
  7. I was contemplating whether to post this or not for reasons..... I'm trying to install Microsoft Word 5.1a on my iBook running Mac OS 9.1 but have run into an error saying I don't have enough disk space. It says it needs ~22mb and it reports available disk space as -2gb (that's negative). I have 8gb free. I haven't run into this problem installing anything else. Perhaps the installer is broken or maybe it's a mac os bug? I had issues googling this problem.
  8. As @Lurick mentioned, your password was probably leaked somewhere and someone is trying to use the leak to make money off of you. They most likely only have your email address and leaked password. I'd recommend using a password manager in the future. That way, each password is unique to each website/service you use and as a result, if you were to receive an email like this again you'd know exactly which service was breached simply based on the password.
  9. Well that's because there's no graphics drivers in safe mode. I was suggesting a fresh copy of windows because there might be another driver or windows related issue on your current install causing it. You wouldn't need to reinstall windows, just put a clean installation on a drive you're not using. Otherwise if the gpu is under warranty then definitely use that.
  10. If the issue is progressing, then it's probably dying. Does it happen if you boot into windows safe mode? Are you able to run a fresh copy of windows from another drive and see if the issue persists?
  11. I personally wouldn't get anything below 350nits. I usually keep my display at around 300 nits (estimate) but in the sun it's very hard to see. I say 350 because it's good to have some wiggle room.
  12. Are you sure there isn't any dust in there? I've had to clean out the USB C port on my phone twice in the past 2.5 years also due to the connector being wobby when plugged in and it sometimes not charging at certain angles. Each time I fixed it by taking a needle and cleaning the port. I also hadn't had this issue with micro usb.
  13. I've also had bad experience with Razer (deathadder mouse, both my original and replacement broke under a year) and have read of terrible qc issues with a range of their products. Logitech is regarded as a good brand but while my g502 mouse is going strong 5 years later, I've personally owned two other mice from logitech (anywhere mx and g702 marathon) whose switches stopped working. I've also read of switch double click failure on their newer and $100+ mice as well. Alex Kenis goes into great detail as to why this is here on youtube. TLDW: the higher polling rate of many of the modern mice be
  14. I also have issues using HDR in games. When I turn it on, some games like Destiny 2 refuse to load (this was a while ago, might be fixed). Most other games look dimmer and colors are washed out. Whites turn to light grey and everything is less vivid. Turning HDR off actually looks better lol.
