Rolling chair. Thick carpet. Bad combo.
My only experience with chair mats was about 20 years ago when my mother had a relatively thin piece of plastic she unrolled and laid down under the desk. It's been decades. Surely there's better stuff out there. Can anyone recommend a good, large mat to...
Some things to be aware of with the Apple Thunderbolt displays (the old ones with the thick bezels):
1) The bezels are THICK. So thick that you basically can't use multi-monitor arms designed for 27" monitors.
2) The displays are HEAVY. Most arms support up to 15lbs. These beasts are 25lbs...
I know it's not a Quadro, but my Radeon W5700 (PRO/Workstation) card has no performance benefit modifying Adrenalin drivers to pretend it's a RX 5700/XT/etc. I imagine it's probably similar with nVidia cards.
That's exactly what it is. There's a theory that an aircraft component COULD potentially operate out of spec, and said component COULD potentially produce inaccurate data as a result. From what I hear (granted, I'm in Telecom, not aviation) it's the FAA being overly cautious. Nobody has been...
I recalled something similar and looked it up. 2001, British guy, called it the "Em Drive." NASA tested in 2016 and showed it worked... Which apparently since has been debunked.
I was expecting that anyway. Going rate for a card these days seems to be directly related to daily returns when mining. 1 year of mining returns = cost of card. So if the 4090 makes about $10/day, I fully expect it to be a bit over $3500.
They do? Admittedly, I've never been after any high-value guns. Mine are always like a Remington 700, or an AR-15, or an old M-1 Garand. Common firearms, and nothing anyone would scalp.
For new purchases, I've always walked into the store, said "Gimme that one" or "Order me this", filled out a...
And that's basically what STIR/SHAKEN is. All it does is prevent caller ID spoofing. It says, "We, Verizon/ATT/TMo/Comcast/etc, do hereby certify that the number showing up on your screen IS the originating number."
I believe most cellular phones these days can require the flag to be set in...
I completely forgot about that. A legitimately GOOD law, and one that is (mostly) adhered to. Problem is that it’s a US law, so if the company doing the calling is in, let’s say, a “dealership warranty center” in India, they’re still allowed to spam ya. That’s where STIR/SHAKEN comes in. We...
32GB in all of my systems.
NAS because I was playing with dedup at the time.
VM boxes because... Well, VM boxes. It's the max the mobos will take.
Gaming box because it's the smallest amount I could buy the system with. Never seen a game push it over about 10GB, so most of it's wasted.
Keep the OEM username and password associated with the sticker on the motherboard. Use that account to create another account with the same permissions. Set this new account to whatever password you like. If you use password management software, stick this new account's credentials in whatever...
Even using nothing more than SATA 1 onboard, you shouldn't have an issue hitting 100MB/s write on a 3-drive raidz. If MS fixed the Storage Spaces parity write issues, I would imagine you could get similar results out of that. Personally, I haven't ran a hardware-based RAID card in my home lab in...
Storage Spaces has historically had performance issues with parity. Write speeds for a 3 drive setup MIGHT hit 25MB/s. Maybe. If you're just using the computer as a storage server I recommend picking up one of the more user friendly Linux + ZFS distributions out there. They're basically free...
I have an envy of you people and your wicked CPUs. I've got eight E3 v3s and a W-3223 chewing up power, and only pulling down ~4KH/s.
26 coins yesterday, a bit over a coin an hour.
At $0.05 per coin, that's a daily take of $1.30.
I don't even want to know what the electric bill associated...
Bought the max (3) I could online. Guess I'll try out the local store tomorrow AM for another 3.
edit: Logged out, bought three more, logged in during checkout process, and it let me buy 'em. Maybe I WON'T need to drive around town tomorrow!
It's entirely due to Boot Camp. No Apple machine is technically compatible with Win11, so some workarounds have to be had. Figuring out what is needed took the vast majority of the time. It wasn't until I removed my NVMe drive that I started having success with the install.
Eight hours later, I have Win11 installed.
WTF happened to my right click menu? I gotta click twice to do common tasks now?
AAAH, THE WHITE! MY RETINAS! (Why isn't dark mode an option during install time?)
Muscle memory has me move the mouse to the lower-left corner. That's gotta get retrained...

Best I could find. Of course, at 76mm wide, you're basically looking at the width of two fans. Might be worth comparing it to a pair of stacked Deltas if you've got 'em.

I upgraded from a first-gen iPad Air (circa 2013) to a 2021 iPad Pro 12.9. My thoughts:
The increased screen size is amazing. I didn't think I'd want/need it, but I definitely am happy I got the big one. My eyes ain't what they used to be, and I watch a lot of videos.
Yay! I can browse the...
OK, it looks like MacOS. Ehh, whatever. What I really wanna know:
How many additional clicks does it now take to perform a task? Every version of Windows since... 7? I think? has utterly failed this metric, with a few exceptions - the live preview of windows and grouping comes to mind.

M18 Fuel cordless impact driver. This thing is incredible and I can't believe I wasted time with socket wrenches anywhere I could have used this. Ditto for the M12 3/8" drive ratcheting wrench. Power tools gimme smiles.
I will never NOT have a lift after having this one. If it breaks, I'll buy...
I used to love the *NIX mindset, but it's changed in recent years. Let's say you use bash as your shell, and a new version comes out. Included in the code is some sort of functionality that a college kid made for kicks - You can print to a printer instead of to a screen. Well now you need CUPS...
Okay, that's a bad bet on my part. Lemme rephrase.
"Best Buy as you know it won't exist in 10 years."
You'll still be able to walk into Best Buy and purchase a TV, washing machine, or a cell phone case. You WON'T be able to get GTA6, a new GPU, a copy of Fast and the Furious 10, Now That's...
The new CEO is in the process of gutting the company. She took over a very profitable company and is killing it to make short-term profits. I don't expect BB to exist in 10 years.
No more full time employees.
Want hours? Sell BB warranties.
