    Now I have a legit reason to hate EGS

    I don't really have a problem with EGS vs Steam vs anything else. Just reinstalled Windows after having a hard drive issue. I kept all the game installs backed up, but didn't image the OS drive. With Steam, I just re-install steam, point it to my directory, and it's good, it picks up the game...

    New Win10 Driver Update even when disabled

    Ok, so I had disabled drivers updating - as nVidia 417 series causes my poor 980 to freak out when waking from sleep. I've been happily using 399. WIn10 Home, so I don't have Group Policy editor. Once i finally figured out that was the issue - I disabled driver updates via this link...

    Rural Living - looking at options

    Ok I have lived rural for a while now so this is nothing new. I currently have DSL - 12MB is the advertised speed, when it works I get around 7, not going to complain too much about that. Except it's not very reliable - seems to really suffer in the mornings, which is when I'm trying to get...

    RTX on Titan V

    Saw this on WCC but I don't want to link to them, here's the source (translator may be needed) https://www.3dcenter.org/news/raytracing-battlefield-v-laeuft-mit-guten-frameraten-auch-auf-der-titan-v So interesting that Titan V is running RTX code on BFV and that it's competitive with Titan RTX...

    Anyone using Brave?

    Brave web browser Just stumbled across it in another forum. Looked like it may have some chops behind in with respect to development. I'm downloading and installing to try it out but haven't formed any opinion yet. I've been a Chrome user for a while, I've tried FF and Opera off and on but...

    Cisco AP1041 as WiFi Bridge

    Ok, just moved into a new house. I plan on running hardline ethernet one of these days, I promise. But that isn't today. I have an older Netgear R7000 Router that I have been using for a while. It still works ok, the entire house gets WiFi adequately, no real issues with this particular piece...

    SQL - where's my bottleneck?

    I've been running a mysql server for a web back end for a while now. It's been running fine for years actually, but I figured I should stop being lazy and actually try to optimize it somewhat. This is a small user count development platform - the software is for modeling industrial data -...

    New HT Reciever or something

    So we "remodeled" our living room with our TrumpTax money. New furniture, new TV, put Hue bulbs all over the place, swept up the dust bunnies, etc. Wife is now complaining that my older Yamaha receiver is too complicated/clunky, it's a big box in our HT setup, and it puts off some heat when...

    Headphones for travel

    This is not really Home Theatre, but appears to be the best forum as far as which section to ask. I’ve been doing a lot of traveling recently. I’m looking for a good pair of noise canceling headphones to take on flights, but I’m having trouble finding the right set. What I’m looking for: Noise...

    Can't figure out - cold reboot problem

    I've built this computer in November of 2014, so I've had it a while. Starting about 6 months ago, it started randomly rebooting (cold reboot, like reset switch). It only occurred rarely, like maybe once a week, and I just kinda wrote it off as Windows 10 weirdness (since it coincided with...

    Corsair AX760i (possibly other modular PSUs as well) - issues with modular cables?

    Anyone else have an issue with the main 20+4 cable shorting out? I'm on PSU #2 where the main cable bundle has developed an internal short. Nothing crazy in my wiring, no crazy sharp bends or anything else. I'm using a Corsair 240 Case in fact, so the wiring route is pretty standard...
