    Sync two computers over the internet

    I got around to sort slapping together the remote machine this weekend. I got syncthing up on running on both machines and synced a few files. It wasn't that bad to get working. Now to take one machine to a different location so it isn't local and make sure it is good to go. If that works...

    Alexa is evil (If you didn't already know, now you know)

    AKA muriatic acid in the pool isle at your local super center throw in some galvanized nails and you get H2. or melt the pennys to get the zinc out. I finally got good at getting H2 gas.

    Alexa is evil (If you didn't already know, now you know)

    I was born in 77, so you got the jump on me slighly... But what about these ways to stay entertained? Used battery to separate water to get hydrogen for "experiments" Check Used controller from electric train set to get hydrogen faster. Check Use soldering iron to make wires and burn the...

    Sync two computers over the internet

    Not sure those would work quite right... I'm not really an expert on these services especially in the weeds of them. BUT, my DVD collection stands at 13TB. If I were to rip a new bluray, that would be in the 15GB range by itself. If it were on one drive for example, I believe the file would...

    Sync two computers over the internet

    So this really isn't a cloud thing per-se, but not sure where else this goes... I have a collection of extracted DVDs that are currently on one of my machines. What I want to do is set up a second machine with my DVD library at second location (a cabin), first for redundancy and then so I can...

    Gaming rig upgrade under a budget.

    Just a theory, but I wonder if the shuffle prioritizes customers that have purchased recently.... I have been selected three times, but have purchased stuff... Just keep entering and checking fateka, roguecast and parallel miner... Or, you could get crazy and plan a vacation to microcenter.

    Uses for an old system?? Asus Z77 / 2600k

    Emby/plex/jellyfin media server. RIP your DVDs and house them there. The 1080ti can re-encode them on the fly for different bandwidths...like for a computer on a mobile connection, etc. Heck, I use a 1050ti and it can do like four streams at once.

    Would it be naïve to sell my Vega 56 for $$$ to buy a better card "when" prices fall again?

    Food for thought.... Ethereum is the big thing being mined. BUT, there was a sweet spot for Vegas...they were performing similarly to a 3080 on Ergo. A few weeks ago, there was a change that essentially gave a vega 75% performance on Ergo. That made the value a lot less for a vega. I don't...

    Headset/mic suggestions

    I will preface this by saying I have no experience in this arena...zip, zero, nada. I normally just yell across the room... I need some suggestions for some decent headset/mic units to give to Santa Claus for my son and I. He like to play minecraft and our PCs are in different rooms, so he...

    Need help tuning an Asus 3090

    Those 3080s and 3090s with the ddr6x just get hot. I have two tuf 3090s. One is in my regular PC and seems to get 110-115mh in windows. I set the OCs in the miner. I also put another heatsink and fan on the back and my ram still is in the mid 90s. Without it, it would throttle...

    6 RTX 3080 (LHR) INNO3D, help to build a Rig.

    Just to echo the others... Way more ram than you need. One 8gb stick is good. The SSD is more than you need. The cpu is also more than you need. Figure out the mobo first, then get a processor that fits. I have used a couple msi b550 pro max boards with an m2 adapter and have had seven...

    Help please - Dead Mobo? (And if so, what to do with an AMD fx8350 and 1060 6GB)

    sell or keep KD5

    decisions decisions.... So far I've mined just about 1300kda. However, I sold 900 right before it shot up when it was just hovering around $2.60-2.70. Hindsight is 20/20. If I sold right now, that would leave me with 400. Maybe someday it will be worth $1000 per KDA...one could dream. I...

    sell or keep KD5

    About a month ago, I took possession of a KD5 from goldshell. When I first plugged it it, I was getting 45 KDA per day. Now that is is down to about 22. Of course the price of KDA has shot up and as such, so has the street price of a KD5. I see them going for $35,000 on ebay. I seriously...

    When will Video Card prices come down lower?

    So just another little data point... Three years ago it cost $3,300 to ship a truck load of apples from here in central Washington across the country to Boston. Now that cost is $12,000. One truck load is 1000 boxes at about 40lbs per box. So just the freight is about 30¢/lb So on the...

    $600 conundrum, 1080ti vs 3060

    That's what I said! It totally doesn't make sense to fork out a bunch of money for something those games can't utilize. Maybe just get ahold of an older GPU and try everything. If it doesn't work, just sell it. crazycrave was just asking yesterday about the value of older GPUs. There also...

    $600 conundrum, 1080ti vs 3060

    So if it is for old games in win7, why do you even need a card with that much oomph? Civ II doesn't need much. Why not just an rx 460 or less?

    Poll: Upgrade to Windows 11 in 4Q 2021?

    exactly why I find it interesting. That thing is like Meg Ryan. But how much screwing around is it going to take to get working on a 4790k? While capable, it isnt "supported" and then the mobo doesnt have tpm, so you need another piece. I have other machines that are "compliant" that I'd...

    Poll: Upgrade to Windows 11 in 4Q 2021?

    I too have some hardware that is incompatible. I find it interesting that an I7-4790k isn't good enough. Then there is the whole tp thing you'd need. I'm curious, but also really apprehensive.

    When will Video Card prices come down lower?

    So what is better than cars? Steel? Plywood? PVC? All core items seem to be on the rise. That banana one isn't going to be long term accurate either. And to compare apples to bananas, I am an apple grower in the state of Washington. What we are seeing are problems all over. Our cost of...

    Question about current state of crypto mining

    Question about current state of crypto mining

    I got the aluminum heat sink and mounted a fan to it...I also get 120 with temps in the mid 90s I also have the same model card with a bykski wb and it runs at 126 with temps more in the 60-70s.

    AMD Celebrates 5 Years of Ryzen Processors

    Nice catch, but i bet I have some someplace. I use to have a build with an FIC VA-503+....that thing was the.....biggest pain in the ass ever. I mean it was cool in that it could take SDRAM OR EDO ram. But the jumpers you had to set with that thing were insane. Voltage, bus, clock, ram...

    AMD Celebrates 5 Years of Ryzen Processors

    Real truth to this... I have a 2600k that is still running my windows media server. It just chugs along. Last year I gave it some new life by upgrading the boot drive to an ssd. A couple months ago, I made a internet/email/office machine for my wife. CPU is an fx-8350 with an ssd and 16mb...

    What Is Your Personal Favorite Video Card of All Time?

    My favorite was the original ATI all in wonder that I got back in the late 90s. I didn't need a tv in my dorm room because I had the all in wonder. I used the heck out of that thing. I have a 1080ti now that I'm partial to. I just took the 1080ti out and put a 3090 in, but I'm more...

    so i finally won a newegg shuffle but lolz at the msrp

    I've been finding I like B&H a lot lately. Their website is easier to figure out what you're looking for than newegg. Newegg you have to be so darn careful from all the dodgy resellers.

    Anyone have a heatsink they like for sticking on the back of 3090s?

    So I got a couple of the heatsinks and some pads and placed it on a 3090 tuf. My hash rate is maybe 120 and temp is in the low to mid 90s. I just really have to wonder about the ram temps and what is realistic. To contrast it, I have another 3090 tough sitting in a bykski full cover water...

    $5-$6K budget for bitcoin starter rig with 2 cards - what hardware do you guys recommend? Eventual goal is 6-9 cards.

    I have two MSI B450 pro-max boards and then got the cheapest Ryzens off of used websites or something. They have six PCIe slots and then one m2. I have them running seven GPUs. I have never tried one of those 4gpu in one pcie slot...if I was to try it, I'd try it on the promax before any of...

    AMD to release Radeon RX 6600 Non-XT on 10/13, on par with RTX 3060

    Is this good card for mining

    I had one kinda like that, but decided that the onboard graphics was just fine for mining.... just gotta make sure you are down to level 6 for the maximum amount of diamonds...and watch out for zombies and creepers.
