    Perpetual Free Steam Codes Thread

    Nice to see this thread still going. Just had a PM for one of the few remaining games from my old list. I really slowed down on the bundles, as wife / kids / life took front seat to games, but i do still love this [H]ard community and I'm glad to see others' loyalty to it as well.

    32" 16:9 monitor too big for Gaming?

    I love my 32" 1440p. Fit more on the screen while keeping a reasonable text size at native res. Gaming on it is much more immersive than the 22 or even 27 i had before it.

    Apollo computer

    I had a guy come in to my shop several months ago who worked on several of the early NASA missions. He had programmed a number of those early systems in machine code etc. Im a bit fuzzy on it all now. He also talked about how he had dumpster dove behind Apple's first store and had recovered some...

    creating win 10 usb installation

    Ive had excellent luck with rufus on my 16gb and 64gb drives. The only problems ive had were when my antivirus would get angry with rufus making something bootable and stop it before it could finish. Its got a bit of Mississippi Leg Hound in it...

    Most Customers Would Stop Watching Netflix if it had Commercials

    I wonder this too. I read an article last week or so that claimed something like 60% of the internet traffic is fake. Click Farms and the like, in order to generate more revenue to the ad companies. So you have to wonder if these ads are actually bringing in any real business, or enough to...

    Most Customers Would Stop Watching Netflix if it had Commercials

    And not in Braille, or showing enough diversity, or showing a white person smiling while a black person is frowning. There's no end to it. I also would cancel my Netflix subscription if the ads start showing. That really IS the single biggest draw i have to Netflix. I DONT want to see...

    creating win 10 usb installation
