    eBay asking users for their Social Security numbers ahead of rule change by IRS

    I'm in the same boat. Only use ebay as a LAST resort to sell anything. As such I've got a pile of parts sitting around that I really should get rid of and I haven't sold anything in a looooong time. If it weren't for this place I wouldn't even know heatware existed and I haven't sold anything...

    What Mouse and Keyboard Are You Using Right Now?

    Well I was using a G610 keyboard with red switches until the warden spilled beer on it a couple weeks ago blowing one of the surface mount resistors and taking out a couple keys. :mad: Now I'm back to using my many years old Zboard. Still love this thing after all these years and even more so...

    Just got my first one today and shucked it and it's a EFAX Red as well. It says 256MB cache on it and bottom label on the box says Thailand. Can't wait to see what the other 5 end up being, they just shipped yesterday.

    8TB WD Easystores all time low $130 at Bestbuy ~ ENDED

    Well that's kind of stupid. They limit you to 5 per order so I went back and placed another order for an additional drive and it went through. Kind of defeats the purpose limiting you to 5 drives when you can just place another order for more. Oh well at least I've got my 6 new drives on their way.

    Linux for Old Laptop

    Mint is a good no brainer if your hardware supports it and it runs good. I've been liking Solus lately as well. It's all boils down to what you want and like in a distro. I prefer FreeBSD and kde but the latest 11.2 has been a PITA for setting up a DE with an nvidia card.

    AMD Wants to Retake the Datacenter

    From what I've read (take it for what that's worth) AMD does very little development for FreeBSD. New hardware frequently lags way behind as a result it's up to the FreeBSD developers to figure out how to fix the bugs.
