    Cable Modem and Router Questions

    This, for the SB8200. And, I get my modem disabled about once/month, trying to get this escalated so it doesn't keep happening and forcing my call. At least I can short-circuit they use when I tell them it's 99.9% most likely disabled by their system.

    Cable Modem and Router Questions

    Have my own SBG-8300 w/comcast. Just keep you eyes out for them disabling your modem in the middle of the night without warning, and enabling your old modem. Lucky I had my old modem (went from DOCSIS 3.0 to 3.1, so had my old one handy) so I wasn't down for a week waiting for the tech to...

    Assassin's Creed Valhalla

    The combat controls are, for me, really badly placed. "c" to dodge (and "q" to parry) are hard for me to hit while moving. I've tried moving the binding to other keys, but maybe I'm getting too old for these type of games.

    Borderlands 3

    This weeks challenge is 250 kills with a grenade. But, shock/freeze/corrosive/etc do not count, only 'pure' grenade kills it looks like. I killed a lot of enemies with grenades (level 72 homing grenades), but they had extra effects, only had 3 kills count out of oh, 50.

    FIOS vs Cable

    I've got Comcast's premium service (can't remember their marketing name right now) with an ARRIS SURFboard SBG8300, just tested and I get ~450Mb (depending on which test site I use) down, and 23Mb up, latency ~25ms. No experience with any other broadband except AT&T dsl, which sucks.

    What exactly is the deal with GPUs

    BB seems to have a cool down wait after you get it in your cart. Don't know if that will help with the bots, tho. waiting on a 3090 for @1500. On the other hand, that discord server is quick enough to get to the stock before they are gone, for BB anyway. Well, crap, no luck this time. It's...

    What exactly is the deal with GPUs

    The BestBuy rep was an online rep in a chat window, I was looking at the email and was asking when any would be in stock, they said 5 Apr at the earliest, I was assuming online. No idea about in-store.

    Hidden costs for Xfinity X1

    Meh, I kept getting notified that I had to upgrade the modem for the 300Mb download, I was seeing 200-ish with the 3.0, at least on the system here. Once I replaced it with a 3.1, (and a lot of annoying support calls) I saw 300Mb consistently.

    The Witcher 3 still worth playing?

    I broke down and bought it (and played it) about 6 months ago, the mods weren't all that plentiful, but the game play is still solid. I still play the hell out FO4.

    Hidden costs for Xfinity X1

    Their 'dvr' cable box doesn't actually have an hd now ( it may stream from the cloud now, I do have more than 4 concurrent recordings now, had up to six, I think), I think, unless they crammed it down to an m.2 ssd or the like. my new box is about 1"x6"x10". And they include hbomax/peacock & a...

    The great video card dump of 2020 has begun!!!

    As long as my 1080ti doesn't die on me, I'm good until the Black Friday/holiday deals hit. The 1080ti works just fine for any games I run. Prolly get a 3080, then set my 1080ti aside as d/r, then retire my r9 295 x2 for good, it does suck up a lot more power.

    Borderlands 3

    Hint: If you're using the EGS, you may have to manually add the dlc to your game, it didn't download it until I did. But the game let you choose the quest, but "Kriegs Minds" destination doesn't show up to travel to. Why just this dlc needs this IDK.

    So buy Ampere or wait for AMD response?

    I'm actually being smart and waiting. I don't see anything on the game horizon (for my interests) that needs more horsepower than my 1080ti has. BL3, FO4, CIV VI, Galciv 3 (old, I know, but still good), nothing that stresses my 1080ti, so I'm being rational and holding off until something...

    GPU - diminishing returns reached

    This, so far, on the games that I run, anyway, my 1080ti handles them just fine. The cost/benefit just isn't there so far. Even the latest Assassins Creed ran without a hitch on 1440 @ 144 hz. I have a feeling that the 30x0 cards will be just as silly in pricing as the 20x0 series. I'd...

    On DLC3, they should have gotten Tom Beaudette (?) to narrate, I kept hearing his voice instead of the narrator's. Or maybe the person who did The Dukes of Hazzard. And once I figured out all you had to do is just walk onto the jump points, I kept trying to get to them and trying to jump (space...

    Borderlands 3

    I don't know how well that would work with just a dlc after you have to go through most of the game without a decision tree built in from the start. Not sure how that would fit in a game like BL where it's just a "nuke 'em 'till they glow and shoot 'em in the dark" type of game. It would be...

    Do you feel gamers have become "soft?"

    Why, back in my day you had to use Himem & bootsys and run a menu on boot to setup for for each game. After doing that, you had to actually make it through the game for the payoff for all the work up front to run the damn thing in the first place. Gamers today have it easy. And don't get me...
