    Ubisoft will now report you to police in the UK for so called speech violation

    The context doesn't matter. Anyone screaming, with death threats, outside of my house will also have a chat with enforcement. They had chats with enforcement at my school as well if it got too extreme. That hasn't changed. This isn't hate speech, it's threat speech. Also, news flash, it's not...

    Amazon Preparing to Offer Home Internet

    I wonder how far this is going to go? I mean what's to stop, Cox, Comcast, Centurylink, etc from throwing up a few thousand satellites to compete? How many can we realistically shoot up there before it becomes an actual problem? We're going to Dyson Sphere our planet under satellites! :LOL:

    Ubisoft will now report you to police in the UK for so called speech violation

    That's because life constantly moves. Back "in-the-day," there was no internet. Anyone who actively targets and threatens someone while playing a game online should absolutely have a chat with enforcement. And, that's what, from the article, is what I'm reading. It's got to be credible, extreme...

    Asrock is trying out add-in cards to upgrade your motherboard chipset and features

    It's all fun and games until ASRock decides a monthly subscription is required to keep your B650 running at X670 speeds! :p

    Article: iPhone 14 might call emergency services when on a rollercoaster

    Apple has just responded, "Clearly the phone works as designed. It's correctly identified the user entered a reality distortion field and is in urgent need of emergency services." :D

    FS: Asus 1080ti Strix O11G Gaming - $Sold Shipped

    Hello! Here it is! The king of the Pascal architecture. Most of this card's life was plain Jane boring stuff like email, and web sites. Of its gaming life, well, it was spending a great deal of time playing Path of Exile which isn't exactly a stress tester. It's never been used for mining, was...

    Bitcoin mining operation in Finger Lakes sparks local concerns

    That's not the whole deal. If the lake boils and kills off all fish, as an example, wiping out any fishing industry, it becomes a problem even if it's legal. Because we don't live in vacuums, causes and effects can have consequences.

    [H] Stock Alerts, Tips & Tears for Nvidia, AMD, Intel, PS5, XBOX

    I did. And I though, afterwards, no it's just not cool enough to spend that much. I did consider the 3090 pretty seriously but the monitor just swayed me out. But yea, I'm only in on the shuffle for what I'll buy now. Looking for the Strix 3080ti. I had no idea this could work. But it wouldn't...

    [H] Stock Alerts, Tips & Tears for Nvidia, AMD, Intel, PS5, XBOX

    I just, I just couldn't do it. Let it go. I rationalized that I just don't need the card, can't feel great about trying to scalp it, and don't need the monitor. Looks like my next build is around December/January. When I checked the cart, the cost of the card was $2200+ (I can't remember the...

    Battlefield 2042 live reveal today

    I swear, when I saw the tornado, I figured I'd see a Marvel logo with the Chitauri pouring out. 😁 Half expected to see Iron Man fly around. Looks like it could be fun. Here's hoping EA doesn't stuff it up with loot boxes and/or subscriptions.

    Domain Controller Down Need access to Domain user Desktops

    It's been quite a while since I had to do this so that's why I recommend trying it on one desktop first. I think the computer is still adhering to group policy because it's still joined to the domain. It doesn't matter that the domain isn't available. The system should follow the last set of...

    Domain Controller Down Need access to Domain user Desktops

    IIRC, group policy is likely still in effect. I'd take one system, as a test, un-join from the domain using the local admin account and then see if you can change any NLA settings, etc. You should be able to rejoin the domain once it's back up as long as it's the same domain with the same SID's...

    Frys going out of Business

    I don't think it's a limb. You're on solid concrete ground. My point is even if they'd come up with an iPod that probably saved Apple it would have too late for them.

    Frys going out of Business

    That plus thousands lost any disposable income and supply issues are still a problem. I don't blame COVID for Fry's demise, but it sure didn't help.

    Is Windows 10 20H2 the worst windows yet?

    Geez! Starting to sound like Linux forums around here! :D The only one I can relate to, mildly, is your second point. I've also had this happen with an ethernet connection as well. I suggest checking the event viewer ans see if anything is showing up under system. The disable/enable thing seemed...

    Windows 7 Is One Obstinate OS

    This isn't a valid question. If we were soothsayers, we'd all have won the lottery by now. But I'll go first, the next update will break something in Windows 10. :p

    How China's Social Credit System Affects Its Citizens and Businesses

    Well the social media blowback is real and has real consequences on people's lives. So I don't think it's purely assumptions. You and me both except I never had FB. Doesn't mean any opportunities have been lost because we either don't have one. Or if we did, passed because someone's views...
