    I got Fry's last email showing items for sale yesterday. Today out of curiosity I checked in the trash bin and clicked one of items. Got a 404 Not Found.

    Fry's Electronics permanently closing Feb 24, 2021

    Major ouch. At Frys they used to tape actual different processors on the display board behind the enclosed glass with prices next to it. One Athlon socket A processor was on the surface inside. It must have fell off the board. I asked an old Asian lady employee if I could buy that hoping to...

    $65M? I googled that and found out. This is the man who gambled Frys piggy bank dry: Ausaf Umar Siddiqui. Loved that Roseville Fry's train theme!

    Ah, Incredible Universal in mid 90's! Packed with people around. Those motherboards on display looked so foreign to me when I wasn't a DIY builder at that time. As time passes on, so did my DIY skills. I often spent several hours walking around deciding whatever to buy, sometimes with friends...

    What will be your go-to replacement for

    Going thru my tech bookmarks and Hard|OCP's layout is best than all and is easier on my eyes. Black background, some red trims here and there makes a great layout. Most other tech sites are too blight white. Guru3D has a nice blue background, also easy on eyes. My next bookmark to read is...

    Microsoft Guy: Mozilla Should Give Up on Firefox and Go with Chromium Too

    Now is an operating system/software giant Mircosoft actually kissing Sauron Google's ass? I'll keep Mozilla-based browsers on my PC. And I'm glad that there's no Edge on Windows 10 LTSB.

    Battlefield V NVIDIA Ray Tracing RTX 2060 Performance @ [H]

    Did Nvidia really test RTX 1060 with different games at different resolutions before packaging them to be sold in stores? Why do I get the feeling that they used demos enabled in Ray-tracing mode just to see if it works then stamped it a OK?

    Intel to Spend Billions on New Chip Factory Expansion in Oregon

    What a wasteful of $$ by Intel. They throw more money in just to catch up with AMD. By the time their newly built fab is in business, AMD are already on 5nm in both of processor & gpu dept. Intel have a bad habit of shooting in their boot.
