    Time to Upgrade

    Based on some other posts as well, I can survive until the Pixel 5 is at least announced. I used to use OtterBox 100% of the time, but it's so big and bulky that it makes the phone very inconvenient to use outside of work. I prefer to slip the phone in a pocket when I'm out versus hanging it...

    Time to Upgrade

    Hey all, I'm so out of the loop on new phones, and have literally no idea where to start. I'm currently on a Google Pixel 2. Honestly, I LOVE the phone. I haven't had a single "major problem" with the phone to date, and I would love if I could just replace it with a modern version of the dame...

    ASUS UHD B286HK Lag?

    Well, that fixed it. I guess I jumped the gun on this one. I was concerned because my brother never got the monitor to run properly to the point where he stopped using it...

    ASUS UHD B286HK Lag?

    I ordered one, should be here Wednesday. I'm HOPING this will solve most of the issue, but I don't have high hopes. My brother was having the same issue while connected via Displayport on his gaming rig. :/

    ASUS UHD B286HK Lag?

    Hey guys, figured I'd see if you guys had any input for me. I've got an ASUS UHD4K2K (Model B286HK) that my brother hated, so he gave it to me. He hated it because it was "laggy" and borderline unusable. Right now, I couldn't find a Displayport to Displayport cord, so I'm connected via HDMI...

    Can I Play It? The Division.

    Oh man, I would LOVE to. I priced out a system... Just can't justify spending $1,000.00 to play ONE game right now. :P

    Can I Play It? The Division.

    So..... yes? >.< Edit: Upon further research... You can have DX11 installed, but the card will only run DX10... So, it seems like no... God damn it... I guess I have to build a new PC if I want to play this fucking game.

    Can I Play It? The Division.

    And, if RAM ends up being my limiting factor, I'm looking at buying 2 pairs of this: Patriot Signature Line 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2 800 PC2 6400 Memory Module Kit PSD24G800K at

    Can I Play It? The Division.

    Simply put, I'm wondering if my old hardware is good enough for this game... I have a couple of friends who are playing it on their store-bought laptops, but according to the listed system reqs, I'm not so sure my desktop will handle it (even though I'm fairly certain I'll be ok). The system...

    Steam on Linux Mint (Cinnamon) 17.2

    So, I've solved it... Kind of... After fucking with permissions, and a million other things, I've finally found the stupid...fucking...answer... I finally changed my download settings to a server outside of the United States, and everything works... Apparently, Steam could not connect to the...

    Steam on Linux Mint (Cinnamon) 17.2

    Replied before your ninja edit. Anyway, I HAVE tried changing download region, I do NOT have a firewall enabled, and I don't believe it is truly a connection issue, because I can't even restore from a local backup.

    Steam on Linux Mint (Cinnamon) 17.2

    Doesn't download at all. When you press "Install," the download window pops up, prompts you for where to install, desktop / quick launch shortcut, etc., Next, Next, etc. Then goes to the download window and says: "Creating game cache files" and "preparing **Counter-strike" files for download"...

    Steam on Linux Mint (Cinnamon) 17.2

    I'm having a problem on my desktop... I just installed Linux Mint 17.2, and Steam (steam-launcher) is available on the Software Manager, and also natively in the repos. Steam installs just fine, updates, runs perfectly.... But I can't install any games. It constantly hangs at "Creating game...

    Win 7 CD Key is "Flagged" and MS won't help...

    No, that is why I reformatted back to 7. We took 8 off of the laptop to use on his new laptop.

    Win 7 CD Key is "Flagged" and MS won't help...

    Ok, as an update: Win 7 Pro DID come with that machine. The key that I used was from the COA sticker that is on the machine. He purchased a FULL VERSION of Windows 8 (Not a 7 upgrade) and was running Windows 8 on that machine for over a year. In that time, the original Windows 7 key was never...

    Win 7 CD Key is "Flagged" and MS won't help...

    The PC did come with a COA, but for a different version (Home Premium I think, possibly Win8). My brother purchased Win 7 Pro (Not sure from where, but I know that he bought it from a legitimate retailer such as NewEgg or Amazon). I bought it from my brother. See above. I even called him to...

    Win 7 CD Key is "Flagged" and MS won't help...

    So, the other day, my laptop started asking me to activate (which I thought was weird, because it took my CD upon installation without a problem). So, I went through the activation process last night. It went to the "Installation ID" process, which I did via their automated phone system. It told...

    USB Device Not Recognized

    I suppose I could... The thing is, all USB devices WORK when plugged in... But I keep getting the OS throwing errors. Would Linux throw errors like that with no device plugged in or with working devices?

    USB Device Not Recognized

    So, I have a PC at my business that keeps popping up "USB Device Not Recognized" errors. I've tried everything I could think of, plus a bunch o Google-fu results. Uninstalled / reinstalled drivers, remove power and reboot, etc. etc. At this point I am thinking that the motherboard has...

    Alienware laptops? Any good?

    I'm on my m11x right now. I can't say enough good things about it. First of all, I got it dirt cheap. My buddy bought it as a refurb, then he upgraded to a newer, more powerful Dell. He needed work done on his car, so I did that for free, then threw him like, $100 on top of it. The battery life...

    Join the Alliance -- the Socket 939 Alliance!

    My old s939 is still rocking out as my media PC. Still manages to crank out music on my surround sound system, and does a pretty goddamn good job at 720p video playback. I'm still content with it. ^.^

    FAH CPU Percentage Not Changing on SMP

    Well shit.... Then what about my dual core workstations? I'd like to be running them at 50%... I guess I'd have to set them as uniprocessor and use 100% of one core?

    FAH CPU Percentage Not Changing on SMP

    On all of my uniprocessor rigs, when I change the CPU usage percentage, the core reacts accordingly. On my SMP machines, if I change the CPU percentage, the client does not change. I NEED to change it on these machines. My server CAN run at 100% all the time, but I really don't feel like...

    Linux Patent Suit Ruled Against Google

    How the hell is someone suing for patent infringement on OPEN SOURCE SOFTWARE... It's Open Source... community developed... no one OWNS anything... Perhaps I'm misunderstanding this... but from what I can tell, this "Bedrock Computer" is trying to say that they own certain open source software...

    11 Year Old Racks Up $1,750 Xbox Live Bill

    I'm not sure who to blame in this scenario. The 11 year old should not have done this, no doubt. But, at 11 years old, most kids don't have a concept of the value of money. Therefore, a few purchases here and there can really add up without him realizing it. I know Microsoft offers...

    New Steam Game

    So far, Dragonage: Origins is looking the best. I watched the trailers for all of the games mentioned here, and that one seems to be the most interesting.... Still looking for more options though.
