    Hit a Folding (Stanford) milestone? Post it here:

    I didn't even realize I was still folding on my 6900XT for the past 4 months. Uh, I'm in the top 20 producers by 24h/week? 😂 I'll leave it running. Smoke em if you got 'em.

    Are AMD drivers really still terrible?

    I've not had any problem with my AMD reference 6900XT , while my buddy has had lots of problems with his 6800XT, and my friend's 3090 FE crashes in Division 2 all the time (pre TU12 too). I do crank the fan speed up a bit because really, it's pretty quiet anyway (I come from the Delta 7000rpm...

    IMO this explains why the 3yr 210s and 7xx are always sold out new from every authorized reseller, but simultaneously always in abundance on the EVGA B stock page.

    That card only has a 2yr warranty, according to the Step Up terms it would not be eligible.

    There is an unbelievable, mind bogglingly big demand for cards, and plenty of people just watching YT/Twitch live videos or Discord to hammer the sites when stock drops. For every easily faked screenshot I've seen by someone wanting my money, I've also seen hundreds of Ws by regular people...

    You mean your phone? Discord will ping your phone too... just hit up your computer when something pings. You sometimes have an indication of when a drop will be for a given retailer, so if it's something you're anticipating, you can just hang out near your comp for that drop. Like the Xbox...

    I know it's been nearly two months but on 4/3 the buttons were unresponsive. I had opened developer tools to the network tab (F12 or ctl+shift+i ) and kept re-clicking the action when I saw the request drop a 503 error in the network tab. I was waiting about a second between clicks. Had to use...

    Linux malware evades detection for upwards of 3 years, not sure how

    You could probably smash a pam config together to fit any auth scenario you want. You could use nullok or just skip straight to pam_permit.so lol (Don't ever do that)

    Linux malware evades detection for upwards of 3 years, not sure how

    There was an interesting article one time comparing OS latency - as in the screen to screen, field to field timing of older OSes and responsiveness of the inputs. (As well as mouse and tool responsiveness for GUI) It was surprising the extent to which modern OSes are slower in absolute terms...

    The Post Your Old/Retro Builds Thread

    I have the whole machine. The nForce2 were okay, but man, they had a bunch of problems too. I want this rig to be an XP 2200+ with an Epox 8k7a+... but really it depends on the motherboards I find. The same seller did find a Q500N (the 2.0 version of the Q500 that has the bars across the top...

    Bug in AMD store let bots bypass anti bot filters

    I wonder when this was fixed... when I got my GPU you couldn't hammer the ATC link, it would return a 403 and their CDN/DDoS protection would ban you for a little bit.

    WTB: old 2000-2006 parts (Socket A, 370, Slot 1, AGP etc)

    surprisingly they've not been terribly expensive so far. I'm patient and I don't want to pay eBay "ULTRA RARE WITH BOX" prices... most of these are actually spares for existing rigs. I like the sound of it, all but the AM2 stuff really. Which fans do you have? looking forward to it.
