  1. Look at this thread. At least that's what I'm doing right now.
  2. I always find vegetables to be rather bland, and so I like the greater flavour density of meat. Animal products are also much more satisfying to me hunger-wise.
  3. People in my family use the word "router" to mean home Wi-Fi and use "Wi-Fi" to refer to internet (of any kind) elsewhere. It super annoying and makes no sense.
  4. I would personally add more RAM, as the conventional wisdom is that it's not good to allocate more than half your system memory to one thing. I ran a similar server and used a Core 2 Quad Q9650 with 8 GB of RAM (4 GB allocated) and it worked great. That said, it might be fine with 4 GB in the system and 2 GB allocated; Windows typically needs at least 2 GB of free memory to run well anyway, so I wouldn't recommend trying to allocate 3 GB or something to the server.
  5. Fair enough. Most of them are just about food though, and that's just a bit bland (no pun intended).
  6. My unpopular opinion: This thread would be more interesting and exciting if we were allowed to post political and/or "offensive" opinions.
  7. So, car people, I have a question: Is there a limit to how many RPM an internal combustion engine can run at? What would enforce that maximum?
  8. I've decided to go with the K552, as it's from a larger brand and I don't think I would ever take advantage of the hot-swappable key-switches on the other board.
  9. I found this other board too, what do you think? https://www.amazon.ca/MechanicalEagle-Multicolor-Mechanical-Keyboard-Tenkeyless/dp/B01DBVH16U/ref=sr_1_29?dchild=1&keywords=gmmk%2Btkl&qid=1617050683&sr=8-29&th=1
  10. I wanted to get a mechanical keyboard a while back, but didn't do my research and I guess my budget was too small because I ended up with a board that is passable, except for the fact that the key-switches kind of suck; they are "Jixian blues" which I learned is a really bad Cherry clone. I had wanted blues because I tried browns one time and didn't like them much. I wanted the tactile feedback of blues and the extra mouse space of a 10-keyless design. Anyway, I should have returned the piece of junk I got, but I didn't really understand just how sub-par it was and so I didn't. At the time, by
  11. I think this might be the new Blowey-Matron: https://www.tomshardware.com/news/dynatron-amd-ryzen-threadripper-epyc--cpu-cooler-jet-engine
  12. I use the name Computernaut for several things (though I also go by ThunderStar in a few places). It came from when I was picking a new name for my Minecraft profile back in 2017. I had originally intended to be "Robonaut" ("Robo" from robot, and "naut" from astronaut), but it was taken, so I opted for Computernaut instead. In the long run, this turned out better as shortly after that is when my interest in computers really got going. I still like the name and so it's my go-to whenever I need a username.
  13. It seems most people are not. As such, it seems I am in good company. I have never been a morning person, though I've found in the last few years that it's better if I try to be; getting up late, while amazing in it's own way, sets off my whole day wrong, I'm lethargic and have no motivation and sometimes feel almost sick, especially when it comes to having no appetite. I'm quite lively at night though, I can be wide awake at 1:00 am with heaps of energy, intense motivation, and a burning desire to DO THINGS! In general though, I try to get up at a reasonable time and go to bed at a simil
  14. I currently have a GT 1030 (HDMI 2.0), but if I got a new monitor I would probably also get a GTX 1050 (DP 1.4) or similar.
