    Cable Modem and Router Questions

    This, for the SB8200. And, I get my modem disabled about once/month, trying to get this escalated so it doesn't keep happening and forcing my call. At least I can short-circuit they use when I tell them it's 99.9% most likely disabled by their system.

    Cable Modem and Router Questions

    Have my own SBG-8300 w/comcast. Just keep you eyes out for them disabling your modem in the middle of the night without warning, and enabling your old modem. Lucky I had my old modem (went from DOCSIS 3.0 to 3.1, so had my old one handy) so I wasn't down for a week waiting for the tech to...

    Assassin's Creed Valhalla

    The combat controls are, for me, really badly placed. "c" to dodge (and "q" to parry) are hard for me to hit while moving. I've tried moving the binding to other keys, but maybe I'm getting too old for these type of games.

    Borderlands 3

    This weeks challenge is 250 kills with a grenade. But, shock/freeze/corrosive/etc do not count, only 'pure' grenade kills it looks like. I killed a lot of enemies with grenades (level 72 homing grenades), but they had extra effects, only had 3 kills count out of oh, 50.

    FIOS vs Cable

    I've got Comcast's premium service (can't remember their marketing name right now) with an ARRIS SURFboard SBG8300, just tested and I get ~450Mb (depending on which test site I use) down, and 23Mb up, latency ~25ms. No experience with any other broadband except AT&T dsl, which sucks.

    What exactly is the deal with GPUs

    BB seems to have a cool down wait after you get it in your cart. Don't know if that will help with the bots, tho. waiting on a 3090 for @1500. On the other hand, that discord server is quick enough to get to the stock before they are gone, for BB anyway. Well, crap, no luck this time. It's...

    If it takes something like this, I don't know if I want to play with pc's any more.

    What exactly is the deal with GPUs

    The BestBuy rep was an online rep in a chat window, I was looking at the email and was asking when any would be in stock, they said 5 Apr at the earliest, I was assuming online. No idea about in-store.

    What exactly is the deal with GPUs

    I got the latest sale email from Bestbuy, of course nothing in stock, but the cust rep said they are expecting nvidias Apr 5 - 10, no specifics on vendors quantities, I was asking about the evga gforce 3080 FTW for $899. not a great price, but not silly like the 3090's. They may be getting...

    Hidden costs for Xfinity X1

    Meh, I kept getting notified that I had to upgrade the modem for the 300Mb download, I was seeing 200-ish with the 3.0, at least on the system here. Once I replaced it with a 3.1, (and a lot of annoying support calls) I saw 300Mb consistently.
