    What is your favorite Grand Theft Auto edition?

    Ther is already a mod on Nexusmods to restore songs removed from San Andreas. So it is probably just a matter of time before someone makes a mod to allow custom music listings. Either way, missing music or music features does not kill the game for me.

    What is your favorite Grand Theft Auto edition?

    if so, there is always making my custom music list with the same songs. I have even seen clips on youtube of the advertisements on the radio from each GTA. I also just found an article about it. GTA Trilogy Definitive Edition radio stations are missing over 20 songs. The two Michael Jackson...

    What is your favorite Grand Theft Auto edition?

    Just found out about the GTA Trilogy DE and bought it today. Saw numerous other threads about it but none with a poll While I have played them all, VC has always been my favorite. Partially because of the soundtrack. Every time I hear the song I Ran by Flock of Seagulls, this video comes to mind

    The Intel 4004 turns 50

    50 years ago, Intel introduced the world to the first microprocessor, the Intel 4004. The grandfather of CPUs started the computer revolution and led the way to the digital world we know today. Without it we could still be playing board games, creating all those documents and spreadsheets by...

    Burn-in all the time

    Strange situation here. The new system I put together, freezes once every few hours when being used casually (nothing in the event viewer). But when gaming, video encoding, or anything else that puts a load on the CPU, it has never frozen. I tested this by running some burn-in software all...

    LG 27GL650F-B Out of range

    My gaming system uses two LG 27GL650F-B. I disconnected one to briefly install an OS on another system and configure for remote access. When I reconnected it, I go the Out of Range message, but still had video. Officially, the monitor supports up to 1920x1080. It now shows 4K as the...

    Subnet settings

    LAN gateway IP on new ISP-provided gateway/router must remain 192.168.1.254 in order for me to retain write access to it. (I don't know why) IP config before the new ISP gateway/router was 192.168.2.0/24. I do not want to change all the static IPs on the LAN IP range I am trying to configure...

    story driven co-op fps

    I know story-driven or campaigns are usually single player, but ideally (probably does not exist though) would something like the Bioshocks, Half-Lifes, and Fallouts. I'll check out Portal 2. Borderlands 2 I played a long time ago so I do not recall it. Doesn't Fallout 76 have a monthly...

    Got my new gaming and server system

    This is still from my old system. OS is currently installing on the new. Then I'll be doing data transfers. As for the 212, I have no intention of doing any OC. I'll do a burn-in and monitor the temp later. If it turns out to not be enough, a few days delaying the use is no big deal Just...

    Watts needed

    The plan was to RAID 0 the two 2TBs. Looking through the manual, it sounds like as long as nothing is attached via SATA (protocol or port) there will be no significant performance issue. M2A will be the OS. The two 2TB SSD would be on M2B & C. So that would be fine since they both run through...

    Watts needed

    A general rule I have heard, since I built my My Celeron 300A /w 440BX chipset :), is to get your estimated need then add 33%. So 650 sound like a sweet spot.

    It happens on my system and my wife's (both use powered external speakers), my daughter's laptop, (uses onboard speakers), and our TV (via Roku). All of which are played via Plex. I also just tested a few of the movies on VLC. Initially same issue. But under tools>effects & filters>Audio...

    leveling or setting maximum Db

    I have video files that have extreme volume differences during different events. Turn it up to hear the dialog then an action event comes up that annoys the neighbors. Is there a way to level out the audio or reduce it to not exceed a certain Db?

    Linux for an old laptop

    Thx all. Found one to use that still has the Windows feel but with minimal bells and whistles. Going with Google Docs to keep things simple and not involve other apps. Just stick to the browser as much as possible for an interface most people are familiar with. During my research, I also came...

    Linux for an old laptop

    I found some old laptops that still work fine but the HDD is wiped. Both have 4GB RAM. CPUs are a Core 2 Duo T5500 and a Celeron 205. I installed the latest version of Linux Mint and it is running rather slow. Is there another flavor someone could suggest that will run Libre Office and web...

    wifi bridge across house

    Using the Netgear as the other part of the bridge sounds like a workable plan. It has 4 1Gbps ports, and it is the NAS and those two PC's by it that need the speed. Large transfers from the other side are uncommon. The most would be for transmission to our Roku. One of those PCs by the NAS...

    wifi bridge across house

    Here's the full story. The wire we ran from the router to the switch is frayed. So we need to switch back to the original wifi configuration we had. Both my wife and I are disabled and unable to run the cable the way we did when I was not disabled. Completely along the floor is not an...

    wifi bridge across house

    New question. If I install WiFi adaptors in each system to make everything wireless, is there a way to make the NAS WiFi? Obviously, run a cable to a device that will convert the wired to wireless. Is there such a device?

    wifi bridge across house

    We are planning to implement a wifi bridge across our house. We once had one setup when 802.11g was the fastest, but when we got internet >50Mbps down, we switch to the cable. Now that there are WiFi speeds beyond 1Gb/s, we are getting rid of the cable and going to a bridge again. Any...
