    Here Is the Metro Exodus - Uncovered Trailer

    6 minute trailer? So,... that's about 1/2 as long as the game then, right?

    Man Gets 10 Year Prison Sentence for Launching Cyberattacks Against Hospitals

    I did exactly that (post #25), and failed miserably to see what Mr. Gottesfeld was attempting to accomplish except acting like a tool. There were numerous paths to take in an effort to assist the parents in their struggle, and yet he chooses the one least likely to help, and most likely to get...

    China Releases Footage of First Far Side Moon Landing

    Man Gets 10 Year Prison Sentence for Launching Cyberattacks Against Hospitals

    https://www.dailywire.com/news/38424/exclusive-daily-wire-speaks-father-alleged-medical-frank-camp Sounds like the hospital & doctors involved (and let's not forget the state of Massachusetts) were amazing dumbasses & thought they were all Dr. House, when in reality they were Mr. Magoo.

    Harley Davidson Reveals the Pricing and Specs of Its "Livewire" Electric Motorcycles

    Why? A GPS map is just as useful for finding your way around as in a car. Newsflash: Phones do a lot more than make calls and send/receive texts.

    Harley Davidson Reveals the Pricing and Specs of Its "Livewire" Electric Motorcycles

    I don't think these bikes are meant to replace petrol machines. If I had one with a 120 mile range, that would cover about 98% of my riding. I suspect that percentage may be reasonably common among many riders. Many (most?) biker gloves today are designed to be touch-screen friendly (with...

    Agree. Need a fast charging method. An hour or two. Anyone else think the Japanese could show Harley how it's done properly?

    Harley Davidson Reveals the Pricing and Specs of Its "Livewire" Electric Motorcycles

    Been riding for 50+ years, so I doubt the 'bloodstain' is a likely outcome any time soon. Please cite them. Oh, you mean your opinions? Sure, you're entitled to those, but facts? They don't exist. Quiet is good. Repacked the can on the 600 years ago...it's a lot quieter now, thank God...

    Harley Davidson Reveals the Pricing and Specs of Its "Livewire" Electric Motorcycles

    Horseshit. My Honda CBR600 has loud pipes, but I wish it didn't. Few choices after a traffic accident some years ago, so I bought aftermatket pipes that several magazine reviews said were 'not at all loud'. BS. They were some of the loudest pipes made for the bike. And while I'd not deny that...

    Did I destroy my SSD ?

    Valid fear, I'd imagine. Use it till it dies. You might get by for quite some time if you're lucky.

    Stan Lee Has Passed Away at the Age of 95

    I started reading Marvel comics in the late '60's. Shortly after that, my mom went to work as a secretary for a local business that advertised heavily in Marvel comics. In turn, Marvel sent them TONS of comics every month, which the owner had no interest in, so mom brought 'em home. I had huge...

    Homelessness Tax Would Target Rich Tech Sector in San Francisco

    This is kind of an aside, but revamping construction methods to make houses cheaper would help a lot. We're building houses pretty much the same way we were 100+ years ago. Imagine how much your new car would cost (and how crappy it would be) if we were still building them the way we did in...

    Whats the equivalent of an old R9 270x?

    We generally talk celsius when discussing CPU and GPU temps. That said, 150°F is about 65°C, which is warm, but not an issue for a modern GPU. You can use Afterburner to change the fan profile and cool things off if you'd prefer. Edit: Ninja'd by Matt

    Walmart Patents Shopping Cart Biometrics Handle to Monitor Customer Health

    1. The Walmart bashing is old. NO ONE thinks you are hipper or cooler because you claim to never go to Walmart. No one. 2. I don't get the shopping cart thing at all. I DO have to go to Walmart fairly frequently because of the hours I work, and I'd simply be real fucking happy if I didn't have...

    Memorial Day is for Remembering

    Lordy. That sounds a LOT like Tarawa atoll, specifically Betio island. It was a horrific battle. I have a book written about it here somewhere, but Wikipedia has a decent description, and the Marines even made a 20 min film. Of all the WWII battles, it is the one I'd have least liked to have...

    Hearthstone high/60fps/4k possible on 1050gtx?

    Hearthstone high/60fps/4k possible on 1050gtx?

    Might be asking an awful lot of the 530, and I'm not sure a 1050 is gonna solve your issues @ 4K (the 1050 is intended as a 1080p card). Need to ask some other players what they are using. My own feeling is that 1) you'll need 8GB of video ram, and 2) @ 4K, a 1060 with 6GB is marginal (memory...

    Why do we still have PS/2 ports on motherboards?

    I have an Alps Glidepoint PS/2 keyboard with a built-in touchpad that I bought when I built my first system back in 1996. $100 at the time, which was insane for a keyboard, but it still works peachy 22 years later. Alps stopped supporting the touchpad drivers many years ago, so while the pad...

    The Top 5 Worst CPUs of All Time @ [H]
