    Windows 10 users fume: Microsoft, where's our 'local account' option gone?

    I just bought a new little Asus Vivobook L203MA and made the mistake of connecting to WiFi during the OOBE setup and it would NOT let me create a offline account, even with a hard reboot and cutting the router off. Just kept throwing a unable to connect error and try again button. I ended up...

    Athlon XP Barton for retro gaming pc?

    This reminds me of my old AXP 2400+ mobile rig I built in highschool, was just barely fast enough to play doom3 with a heavy overclock on cpu and gpu with the shitty FX5700le. I built it in a Thermaltake Xaser III which I got on sale from frys. I had a Zalman CNPS-7700-CU precariously strapped...

    Volvo to Impose 112 MPH Speed Limit on All New Cars from 2020

    I feel like quite a few of you have never been out west of the Mississippi! There are ALOT of Texas, Nevada, Utah, and Colorado roads where you can run 100+ all day without issue. I-70 coming out of Colorado into Utah has a 80mph speed limit on it with people routinely running 110+, some even...

    Forbes Tries To Game on Linux

    Ever since Windows 10 came out in 2015 I haven't been able to take microsoft windows products seriously. Between the lack of control and customization of the OS, the forced updates, including drivers "updates" that crater the system, the spying and phoning home on users, The vastly shortened...

    Are computers becoming more and more boring to you?

    I got bored/burnt out with gaming and computer hardware builds about 5 years ago and I finally got fully burnt out on WoW in 2016. After that point there would be times where I wouldn't touch a computer for weeks at a time and would groan at the thought of having to boot one up to pay a bill or...

In the last few years I have removed myself from all social media. all but one email account (proton mail) and all but two forums ( [H] being one of them ).

    Amazon Prime at Whole Foods

    For those of us with Celiac Disease Whole Foods is a godsend. Its one of a few or the sole source for many Celiac safe items. Any relief from the "Celiac Tax" (Higher prices for certified gluten free foods) is a GOOD thing! Hope it rolls out across the country soon and they include gluten free...

    NVIDIA Moves Fermi GPUs to Legacy Status, Ends 32-Bit Driver Support

    This, This is a blow to us budget gamers. Up until last year I was rocking a eVGA GTX560ti 448core and used a PNY 9800GT for years before that. With the current costs and scarcity due to the miners, this action feels like a bit of planned obsolescence and an attempt to force upgrades to newer...

    Meh.. I was considering a Ryzen based system in the future.. But not sure now with the lack of Win7 support.. Windows 10 has given me nothing but problems in stability, drivers, and games/software since I started using it a year ago.

    Built a new computer and thinking about Win10, worth the switch?

    I've enjoyed Windows 10 so far.. BUT it has it's share of bugs and things that are downright broken. I would do research on known issues with any software/hardware you have ahead of time before committing to buying. I'm at the point of reverting to Windows 7 myself due to driver issues. I'm...

    Need new motherboard

    Ended up getting the asrock z77 extreme 4 from micro center for 129.99. the boost in speed alone is amazing from ocing, went from 3.4ghz to 4.4ghz with only a minor offset in vcore and is amazingly rock stable in mem test and prime 95 whereas it would fail both with the old mobo

    Need new motherboard

    About two years ago I bought a i5-3570k 3.4ghz and it came with a Msi B75ma-p45 as a combo deal which apparently has NO overclocking ability at all. I have tried everything I can think of and the only way to increase clock speed a bit is turbo boost.. and that only yields an extra 200mhz for...
