    AMD Ryzen 1700 on the Test Bench Under Water

    Loving the mirror finish -- well, sort of a mirror finish. As long as it's flat, then it's going to be good. Curious what the before/after temps were? Also, would you be re-benching the 1700 with HPET disabled, Windows' power profile set to high performance, updating the BIOS to the latest...

    As Expected, Robots Are Taking Over Call Center Jobs

    Perfect timing. I got a voicemail of someone requesting a call back. I called back and after just one ring, I spoke with a very professional-sounding female offering a survey in trade of winning a chance to go to the Bahamas. I'm thinking, "Oh jeez, another telespammer." I curiously asked what...

    LG G2 Factory Unlocked GSM Smartphone 32gb BRAND NEW $190

    I'm concerned about it not being compatible with T-Mobile. Will it simply not work with 3G?

    Craigslist finds

    It would be interesting if craigslist, like eBay, provide ratings based on account names. We could then trust the seller easily. But then there's the missing anonymity.

    Craigslist finds

    How do you do all the calculations when figuring out trades? When you trade, don't one party usually lose out?

    Craigslist finds

    Wish people would realize that. They're extremely reliable and sips gas like nothing else -- it's your go to commuter car. And I got all of these cars running in good condition. :p I'm seeing a brand new Samsung 850 PRO 256GB for $110. Hmm, not sure if that's good. The closest Amazon has...

    Craigslist finds

    :D I've got three Geo Metros. I've gotten them all for incredible prices ranging from $1,200 in 2006, $750 in 2010 and $700 in 2013. All came with free spare parts and even upgrades. That $1,800 price is </3. Some people simply ask high, you just need to talk them down to what's reasonable.

    Craigslist finds

    How's that possible? I would've bought that phone for even $75. Was it unlocked or tied to a carrier? Possible it was stolen? Did you ever ask the seller why he was willing to let it go for so cheap?

    New Lenovo X240 - Keyboard sometimes pauses / disconnects and resumes

    Using exclusively wireless connection so I am not sure if I should bother with the registry editing. I am running Windows 7 Enterprise. Reinstalled drivers including Lenovo trackpoint drivers and keyboard drivers. Used it all day yesterday with no problems. I hit one point where the keyboard...

    Craigslist finds

    Considering the motherboard and CPU and heatsink can be worth about $90 (going by eBay selling price points), I think you've got your money's worth! You can put together a pretty powerful system for just a few hundred bucks! I should look into something like that to build a server. :)

    Amazing prices. Keep them coming. Currently typing from the new laptop -- awesome so far. :)

    New Lenovo X240 - Keyboard sometimes pauses / disconnects and resumes

    Just bought a Lenovo X240 off of someone for a really, really good deal. Tested it at the time of purchase and it was fine. Then bam, I noticed that when I type, the keyboard would eventually stop working or pause. Pressing the keys repeatedly does nothing, then eventually it'll come back and...

    Craigslist finds

    I've caught great stuff on Craigslist. For example, I got a rare 1989 Cannondale Criterium 3.0 bike in top condition for $175. These would normally go $300 or so. And I just got a very awesome laptop as you'll see above. You can find great stuff if you look for it.
