    Started with computers at the age of 6. An Atari 800XL with tapedeck. Then a C128, Amiga 500, Amiga 1200 (which I still own and care for, moved from the keyboard to a tower, 2 CPUs 1 FPU, 1 MMU, FastSCSI II, 2 CD Drives, 3 Harddrives, 10 megs ram). Then later switched to PC and windows/linux. Build my own firewall/router on linux and used it until it hardware died. Found a wife that was handy with computers as well, and who joined me in my online gaming hobby. We both were an awesome duo, but then 15. April of 2016 she died of a heart attack. Now I'm a solo camper again missing her very much. Else I still like to create computer builds for me/her, friends regarding budget and what it's used for to get most bang for the buck invested. Most times the systems I configure outperform more expensive ones. I like to use midrange hardware like GTX X60 versions, and on the intel side the I5, and then mostly using things, one generation old. Why that you may ask, if there isn't a change in the cpu socket type in the next one or two generations, you can easily upgrade. And to be honest, from the I5 3570k to the new I5 6600k the performance gain is measurable, but do you really feel it in the daily use?

    So that's for now =)

  1. I used them after using a Datasette that used casettes to record and load software... you wrote down the counter of your drive to know where to fast forward to für a saved program to start... So mostly those counter numbers usually only worked perfectly for your drive, because others might count differently... then you need to listen in ^^ that was still with an Atari 800 XL. Afterwards came the C128 with a VC1571 external 5.25 floppy drive. Later with the Amiga and PC I moved on to 3.5" floppy disks...
  2. for security reasons wireless and cable lan should work on different networks, using the router as gateway in between.
  3. Yes, the DHCP Forward option should be on the second router, so devices, when polling for an IP get forwarded to router 1 from router 2. only one IP Authority in the house. Else you will get problems and should use different ranges like x.x.x.10-150 on router one, x.x.x.151-250 on router 2. Won't be really pretty but could work, if DHCP forwarding isn't working. Not able to see the routers menues I have to "guess" and go from experience ^^
  4. you need to look at the wireless settings too... best would be when the 2nd router is able to use dhcp forward. Else devices can have problems when there is the same network with similar wireless performance... trying to switch from and to...
  5. Moving the cursor or the clicking thing? and well... when thinking back to my Microsoft Wireless Intelli Explorer mouse... it lastet about 1-2 years, after that the reach of the connection was getting shorter and shorter until it didn't connect anymore at all... bought a second one, same issue in the same timespan... Sadly for my hand it was the perfect rodent. The Logi MX Performance I got now already died once, got swapped due to warranty, and died again same isse, switches went poof... not wanting to get a new one, got omroms, and soldered new
  6. My guess would be aging capacitors on your motherbord, which when heating up stop working properly. So in short, your motherboard is slowly dying. Sorry
  7. open up cmd. type netstat -ano you get a list of now used ports and the PID connected to those. Now open up the task manager, switch to more details, then switch the tab to details. sort by pid and look up the pid using port 80. Then you got your culprit. Cheers Ang
  8. my late wife started years ago baking yeast/sourdough bread for us with whole spelt/fine spelt mix... Depending on the weather the dough needs to rise for different amount of time... until it looks over the rim of the dough bowl can be 30 minutes or 2 hours... The final produkt though... I carry on baking that bread, even getting the spelt from a mill that only mills local nearly untreated stuff... the smell when it leaves the oven... mhm... when cooled off, I sometimes enjoy it with a self made leek cream soup... if some
  9. the 2080... well as long as the 3080 is cheaper, wait for those to get back into stock. The ram... well 2933... hm at least try to go for 3200... and a dell prebuild with the dell premium tax attached ^^
  10. 450 watts may be hard on the edge... If it isn't a low voltage energy saving system build, I would start at least with 550 or 600 Watts. Another reason to be on the higher side, if you want to upgrade the gpu to a 30series or put in more stuff, you got headroom and ar not running the PSU screaming on its limits.
  11. Try to get a refurbished Thinkpad. Those are usually cheap, with a core i5 i7 of the 4th + generation, 8-16 gb ram, and sometimse even a 250 gb ssd
  12. Hm.. what about EKL Alpenföhn coolers?
  13. the question is what for. If for mining... well yes. even though special ASIC Mining hardware give more "bang for the buck" As for building a new or second computer that doesn't need all those PCIE, no just grab a normal none mining motherboard instead.
