    AMD pushed to the corner by TSMC capacity crunch, ponders tapping Samsung's foundries

    Maybe AMD's order is small to begin with. The agreement tells them what AMD purchased and does not guarantee expansion unless there is space. Money talks and of AMD wants preferential treatment that have to pony up the big bucks. AMD has to stop being cheap when it comes to their business...

    So I called Seagate in advance to make sure but... (using a NAS drive in a desktop)

    It's not a single point of failure! What he's using NOW is a single point of failure. If you use a different device to backup to that you keep for offline storage while using a mirroring solution for active data that is three points of failure. Try reading my post next time. Those solutions...

    So I called Seagate in advance to make sure but... (using a NAS drive in a desktop)

    If you want security in an active machine get two sata drives in a raid 1 setup (mirroring) so if a drive fails when in use you don't use your data. Keep your old drives around as a form of offline back only to be plugged into the system when you want to back something up.

    HDD "locking" as a means for isolated multi-boot

    Use your boot menu to switch between the drives. If you don't have one or Windows is locking it out you can always go into the bios and look for "Boot override." Using "Boot override" in the bios allows you to boot off a difference device with changing the boot order.

    2 different versions of wd blue 3D 2.5" ssd drives. One is significantly slower. Beware.

    I hate that there's two different types of M.2 cards one is SATA and the other is NVMe. When looking at SSDs in general SATA or M.2 I always look up the model number. Sadly WD likes to play tricks with their drives, I try to avoid them. BUT again always look up the model numbers of any drive.

    ARECA Owner's Thread (SAS/SATA RAID Cards)

    When flashing an areca card I do all the other files first and save the firmware for last and then reboot. FYI you should download the manual for your card and read the flashing directions OR reading the firmware update process PDF https://www.areca.com.tw/support/docs/FirmwareUpdateProcess.pdf

    ARECA Owner's Thread (SAS/SATA RAID Cards)

    I was not talking about cards older than the 1882 series. The 16xx series cards and junk in terms of features when you compare them to the 1882 series. The 1882 series cards were going for $300 or less on ebay before January 2020 and the 1883 cards were about $200--$400 if you leave out the...

    Say goodbye to your mouse and keyboard

    The whole joke about the death of the KB&M ignores one thing: You replace the KB&M you have have to replace the monitor. VR HMD's currently need to improve greatly before you can read on them just as clear and the current generations of Monitors are at now. So if you think about it the cost of...
