    For Sale: Miscellaneous PC Stuff Grab Boxes - Just Pay Shipping

    To make it worth my while I would have to use a flat rate box that is more expensive than those above. Plus, like I mentioned that's a lot of trouble for me to go down there and get them and pack them up. I just want this stuff gone so I want it as low impact on me as possible.

    For Sale: Miscellaneous PC Stuff Grab Boxes - Just Pay Shipping

    Sorry for the delay. I received a lot of interest but mostly in people wanting different size/weight/courier combinations than I originally had. Then, Christmas happened and I had to deal with famly in town. I have gone back and found some different size boxes. It's all still the same...

    For Sale: Miscellaneous PC Stuff Grab Boxes - Just Pay Shipping

    thanks for the PMs -- they are all replied at this point. I'm continuing to find stuff in my storage and I'm packing these boxes full. If you'd like a little more or a little less (based on your shipping quote) let me know and I might be able to make "small" "medium" and "large" boxes. The...

    For Sale: Miscellaneous PC Stuff Grab Boxes - Just Pay Shipping

    The time has come for me to clean out my workshop. I'm packing up boxes of random things that I've accumulated over the years. Anything and everything could be in these but I don't guarantee what is in which box. Some of the items I've packed up so far include: nVidia Quadro PCIe Cards...

    International Travel, Advice?

    This is a little bit of thread necro but I travel overseas for work a lot -- mostly to Ireland, England, Germany, and Japan. I am a T-Mo customer and the free international roaming described above works PERFECTLY. I just got back from two weeks in Japan. When I got back I had a grand total of...

    Windows 10 build 14393.5 is available and it's the Anniversary Update

    Not just console apps. It's a full Ubuntu installation (basically, it's Ubuntu Core to start). If you add the appropriate GUI libraries you can run GUI apps, too. I did this so I can run xtrkcad (my preferred model railroad tool).

    Opening a GIT repository (or whatever this is that I have!)

    Actually, this sounds to me like the upstream repo is a bare repo rather than a normal source-based repo. In a bare repo, all you'll see as a user looking at it is the metadata. Try this: 1) extra the tarball to a location on disk 2) create a new scratch directory and "cd" into it 3) perform...

    Obsession With "Female" Digital Servants Needs To Change

    In a similar vein, I read an article that leveraged industry data from Garmin and TomTom that said the psychologically both men and women respond positively and with trust to "caucasian" female voices. Thus, this is why all of their GPS default to this type of voice. My point is that I don't...

    Stupid Question - Someone Explain Networking Notation/Terminology to Me

    When I see a subnet written as: 10.0.0.0/8 or 192.168.0.0/16 What does the notation with the slash mean? I have pieced together that it has something to do with the subnet but I have not found a place that explains this at length. I *never* used this terminology when I was going through...

    Watch Google’s Robot Dog Play With A Real Dog

    Big Dog *can* operate completely autonomously but for most of the demo videos you see it in human control mode for safety and other feature demonstrations. Similar to how Google's autonomous car project works.
