  1. If this is your way of asking for a free computer from Linus then I'm sorry to disappoint you, but you won't get one. They don't keep every computer they build. They usually tear them back down to use the parts again.
  2. That should be alright for Minecraft, but I'd recommend connecting both monitors through their HDMI ports. You'll need to use a DVI to HDMI cable to do that, but that would be better than 1080p at 75Hz over VGA.
  3. No. This is also not true, but it doesn't matter for this situation.
  4. That reminds me of an old Pentium 4 based Toshiba Satellite I have stored somewhere. It's got a desktop P4 in it (not sure which socket, it's either 423 or 428), so it's a beefy machine. It has front-panel audio controls that allow the optical drive to be used while the machine itself remains off. I used to use it as a desktop CD player.
  5. Random Redditor: Makes post that doesn't fit a certain subreddit and breaks the rules of that sub.

    Reddit: Puts that post on r/all.

    Other random Redditors: Complain about the post and why the sub is so terrible.


    Where are the moderators during all this? Asleep. No actions for more than 12 hours. It can really suck moderating a large subreddit by yourself. 

  6. Did you just get more warning points? How many are you up to now?

      I could see myself assuming it’s trolling, or possibly someone with mental issues who refuses to seek treatment.  Still doesn’t ring a bell though.  No matter.

      The answer is likely the latter, but no bell, that's ok. Moving on I guess 😂

      Not sure if naming them gets me warning points or not lol.

      We're probably already on a reeeeeeaaaaallllllyyyyy fine line so it's probably best not to kek

  7. MX Master 2S for $59. Should I get it?

      Errr.... I've seen it at $40-50 more than once.

      Yeah, I'm leaning towards skipping it. I need a new mouse, but saving money is nice. Do you have one of these? If so, how do you like it? I'm used to a smaller mouse (MX Anywhere 2S), but I really like the scroll wheel.

      I've had every MX Master since the original.

      Absolutely fantastic mice. The 2S is still great. I only moved to the 3 because the side scroll is implemented  a lot better and I use it for Photoshop.

      Thanks. I'll keep an eye out for a lower price. 

  8. It is! There's none close to me, so I've only been able to go once. It was really good though.
  9. Do you have a point for making this post? If so, do you have any sources proving your point?
  10. It's possible that the design is implemented in such a way as to specifically use that key as a back key. A normal ESC key acts as the back key within Android.
  11. Specs would be helpful. VGA can definitely do well above 720p.
  12. You're the one who brought up the distances that can be traveled. You said that a Tesla can cross Iowa on a single charge. The route a postal truck takes is not across a state, and it's definitely not at highway speeds for the majority of the trip. I'm done going back and forth about this. Find someone else to argue with.
  13. I shouldn't have to explain that. Maybe where you are, but not everywhere. I live in an area where power can go out fairly regularly due to a variety of things, whether that's weather, vehicles, etc.
  14. Lol. The route that a mail vehicle takes is nowhere near comparable to driving in a straight line. That's a pointless comparison. One of the issues I can think of right off when it comes to getting a charging infrastructure in place is capacity. Another is reliability. There's a reason that they aren't starting will more electric vehicles than they are.
  15. I'm setting up a Windows Server 2003 R2 machine, and while I'm at it I've decided to go through my stock of 3.5" IDE hard drives. I really need to get some more of these - I don't have many that are still working. One of them was rather amusing. It's an old white label WD 250GB drive that I bought many years ago in a lot of other drives. I never really used it for anything, but I plugged it in anyway. 

    This thing has more than its fair share of problems. It clicks, makes a sound that reminds me of popping popcorn, and freezes the computer it's connected to, among other things. I wish it worked, but oh well.
