    Windows 10 users fume: Microsoft, where's our 'local account' option gone?

    I just bought a new little Asus Vivobook L203MA and made the mistake of connecting to WiFi during the OOBE setup and it would NOT let me create a offline account, even with a hard reboot and cutting the router off. Just kept throwing a unable to connect error and try again button. I ended up...

    Athlon XP Barton for retro gaming pc?

    This reminds me of my old AXP 2400+ mobile rig I built in highschool, was just barely fast enough to play doom3 with a heavy overclock on cpu and gpu with the shitty FX5700le. I built it in a Thermaltake Xaser III which I got on sale from frys. I had a Zalman CNPS-7700-CU precariously strapped...

    Volvo to Impose 112 MPH Speed Limit on All New Cars from 2020

    I feel like quite a few of you have never been out west of the Mississippi! There are ALOT of Texas, Nevada, Utah, and Colorado roads where you can run 100+ all day without issue. I-70 coming out of Colorado into Utah has a 80mph speed limit on it with people routinely running 110+, some even...

    Are computers becoming more and more boring to you?

    I got bored/burnt out with gaming and computer hardware builds about 5 years ago and I finally got fully burnt out on WoW in 2016. After that point there would be times where I wouldn't touch a computer for weeks at a time and would groan at the thought of having to boot one up to pay a bill or...

    Google and Facebook are Already Accused of Breaking GDPR Laws

    Privacy is one of the most important and most easily lost rights we have these days. In the last few years I have removed myself from all social media. all but one email account (proton mail) and all but two forums ( [H] being one of them ).

    Amazon Prime at Whole Foods

    For those of us with Celiac Disease Whole Foods is a godsend. Its one of a few or the sole source for many Celiac safe items. Any relief from the "Celiac Tax" (Higher prices for certified gluten free foods) is a GOOD thing! Hope it rolls out across the country soon and they include gluten free...

    Guys let's support AMD gpu, and boycott Nvidia, Asus, Gigabyte, MSI

    I'll be glad when PC Gaming dies. The Toxicity and GREED of the people (and corporations) involved is astounding! Well Said, So long as greed rules we are all screwed in the end.

    NVIDIA Moves Fermi GPUs to Legacy Status, Ends 32-Bit Driver Support

    This, This is a blow to us budget gamers. Up until last year I was rocking a eVGA GTX560ti 448core and used a PNY 9800GT for years before that. With the current costs and scarcity due to the miners, this action feels like a bit of planned obsolescence and an attempt to force upgrades to newer...
