    i7 930 owner rejoining the Red Team, buy now or wait?

    Honestly not a bad route. I always see everyone reccomending some high end hardware for the most basic tasks anymore. I think it all comes down to each users specific use case. I'm currently sitting on my "budget" Ryzen. Does EVERYTHING I need and plays pretty much any of my games anything at...

    Only thing that will ever replace the mouse and keyboard is true brain interfaced virtual reality.

    3700x $285 eBay bin

    Closest for me is 100 miles north. So 200 mile round trip. Even driving the car (30mpg+), i'm lookin at $10-$15 in gas (depending on price of the day) and probably about 4 hours of my time if i don't stop anywhere else. So... yea.

    Ryzen 7 3700X Trades Blows with Core i7-10700, 3600X with i5-10600K: Early ES Review

    Anyone think this will happen? I was gonna grab a 3600 or 3600X soon but I may very well wait.

    Capture Carbon in Concrete Made With CO2

    Working in an industry that allows me first hand views of rail transported coal. I can pretty much agree with this. Most of what moves by rail out of the Appalachian region is either metallurgical (for coke production) or export.

    Intel Core i3-9350KF Review: Coffee Lake's Stagnant Waters

    I think 4 cores are fine, based on your usage case and the amount of money you spend. My $60 Ryzen 1300X (was cheaper than the R3 1200 at the time) does everything I need. That obviously doesn't apply to everyone.

    Western Digital: Expect More Energy-Assisted Tech For 24 TB & Beyond

    I feel like there's a point were the potential data loss from a failed drive (yes, even in a redundancy setup) out weighs the benefits of having so much storage on a single drive. Granted.. thats coming from someone who has two 1TBs in Raid 1 and they're not even a quarter full.

    Party poopers. That sounds like a fun swap.

    WeWork cuts back office perks

    Or in the case of where I currently work. They cut everything to the bone to boost the stock price and line their own pockets and leave just before it all comes crashing down.

    Ford Mustang Mach E Leak: Mustang goes Electric

    That sounds great even for a solar systems, assuming we actually see them and the tech doesn't get thrown in a vault.

    Join two Cat6 cables together, outside.

    Agreed. Although i guess you could still use copper if you want. At the very least run it in conduit.. uh.. whats the standard for underground low voltage lines? 12" down? 16"?

    Motherboard RAID 1

    Yea, I can see RAID 1 being of use, atleast protects you from a single drive failure. I use it for a general storage pool (with periodic copies/refreshes to an external drive that stays in my drawer) on my main rig.
