    If you are on a fence if you should buy new RAM now or later...

    I barely have time to game anymore so the 8 gigs I have in my two systems will suffice just fine for many more moons The prices right now are stupid cheap if you do need new RAM

    The Witcher | Official Teaser | Netflix

    mixed feelings on this 1st season. Casting could have been better, let's just say they had to be more diverse than the books sorry but fringilla is not black and triss is supposed to be a redhead Geralt was nailed, not sure anybody could pull off the look, figure, etc story was mixed, the...

    Received a recent email from newegg they will begin collecting tax for Idaho starting July 1 amazon already does so it's a wash NE will sometimes match amazon on certain items but you do not gain or lose now either way.

    Micron Cuts DRAM and NAND Flash Output as ASP Falters

    If there is oversupply a company has all the rights to not produce more product that lowers cost and lowers their price ratio Show me any company that intentionally likes to loose money. Micron is just doing what is financially responsible until the market changes, nothing sinister about it.

    "Captain Marvel" Trolled the Trolls with a $455M Global Launch

    Just a female driven story to make those all into diversity happy. Not to say it will be a bad movie, just the premise of this notion to milk the other side to make the audience satisfied.

    Anybody playing Gwent homecoming?

    I can't get past the 4th battle in the tutorial which is just silly, it's impossible. With the cards they give you there is zero possibility to win thus you can't go forward. I have some ore, keg but there is no IU in which you can cash those in yet until you are in the main game to improve...

    Microsoft Is Replacing Edge in Windows 10 with a Chromium-Based Web Browser

    Since FF blocks flash some sites like will not allow me to watch highlights, chrome has no problems with this. Maybe I need to dig into settings but for now a few things do not work in FF as they once did.

    Seagate Debuts First 16TB Hard Drive

    Eh, I have seagate drives from 1TB enterprise to 10 year old 320G drives with over 60K on them in a really old rig and they are still 100% There are many factors that come into play with drives so to just discount seagate is dumb. That said, 16TB is way more then I'll ever need, I run 4TB HGST...

    Windows 10 Version 1809 Plagued by Another Data Loss Issue

    Installed on one machine a few weeks ago, does not seem to have any issues yet. Oddly by two other 10 machines that update has not shown up so I guess it was pulled, right? To be safe I put in that 30 day grace period/ no updates until MS gets their shit straight

    Homelessness Tax Would Target Rich Tech Sector in San Francisco

    You failed to mention to get those benefits you need to give up about 50% of your paycheck too. I knew a guy who had medical issues from Vancouver, sure they paid for everything but he paid deeply into that to get those benefits. you can't have your cake and eat it too

    Micron Buys Itself Out of Flash Partnership With Intel

    Micron is going to continue to make flash, this facility is in Utah, not far from Boise and they have the capital. As a shareholder I think this is good down the road.

    10 can't see ssd

    It's a F2 with A85X controller that states 8 SATA ports native without any 3rd party controller. 6 has been the norm for ages with Intel, native.

    10 can't see ssd

    I went through bios but did not see anything not enabled. The board is about 6 years old, Gigabyte UP4 and the raid is the build in AMD raid which as I recall was made by promise for AMD. The fact a WD black spinner and HD-DVD both show up on ports 4-7 which can only be sata or IDE mode the...

    10 can't see ssd

    I actually tried that, forgot already but it's control something and the drive was not even listed there either. I really don't get it, never had this happen in over 20 years but then again I generally don't build AMD systems The system is still snappy, I was just going to make it even more...

    Intel Launches New Desktop Processors

    i3-9000 should be damn snappy for a base computer/ internet. hopefully the price is what kaby was, around $119 but I doubt it. 3.7, 4 cores at 65W, should run cool with stock cooler. my kaby i3 idles at 75F and it's been rock solid.

    10 can't see ssd

    I did not have any linux disc with me even though I have a copy of mint somewhere. For fun I popped it into a 10+ year old Intel system, core2duo and it was right there in CDM and disk management. Has to do with the raidxpert mirror even though as noted ports 4-7 are not part of the array, only...

    Went to install a blue SSD onto a relatives computer, 6 year old AMD system set up in raid1 mirror for the OS Drive shows up in bios splash screen but 10 does not see it, nothing in storage management. Older black spinner shows up just fine. makes no sense, tried different ports, same. ports...

    Netflix’s “The Witcher”: Henry Cavill Cast as Geralt, Minority Sought for Ciri

    BS, sorry but Ciri is not a minority in the game so just stick to the damn script and cast accordingly, we don't need anymore liberal diversity. Why does hollywood feel the need to just fuck everything up?

    GOG Launches the FCK DRM Initiative to Promote Consumer Rights

    Warranty Issue - SAMSUNG 860 EVO Series 2.5" 500GB SATA III

    Try this, the drive has a letter at the end, use a program like crystaldiskinfo to get the full SN and then it will register. Do not go by the SN on the box, the drive should have the full SN.

    Midterm Elections in West Virginia Will Feature Mobile Phone Voting

    So, any illegal with a smart phone, legit or not can vote D? Sounds like not only a disaster for this country but a total circumvent of our constitution. Damn, wait, that is what the D's have wanted all along, got it.

    I am, trim is enabled. With 10 though you can force it by optimizing.

    860 EVO, raid1

    All indication even in RST raid 1 trim is passing as both drives show they are enabled. Only minor issue is with 7 unlike 10 you can't force the OS to trim/defrag which I do on my 850 single on my 10 machine

    Ten Years Left to Redesign Lithium-Ion Batteries

    860 EVO, raid1

    Yeah but using raid1 for oh, 10+ years without issue so I works. Surprised by the read speeds, with spinners it helps but wow with SSD it's nice. Put into perspective, paid around $160 for the raptors 5 years ago, now the same size SSD is $99? I'd say win.

    860 EVO, raid1

    Grabbed a pair for $99 each @ NE to update two V-raptors I've had for 5 years with 45K hours on them [but still rock solid] but out of warranty. simply swapped out, rebuilt, repeat, easy. Blistering reads plus redundancy. Only bad part, magician can't see the array so I can't bench but I did...

    bittorrent won't shut down

    Both machines have avast, neither have exceptions but bittorrent works just fine on 10 and not on 7, makes zero sense. I will add I just re-installed the latest which 7.10.3 4495 and when you go to close it just hangs [not responding] can't even use task manager to shut it down, only a full...

    bittorrent won't shut down

    Never had this issue but the latest version when you exit it just hangs, can't even close it down with task manager. The strange thing is this is on a 7 machine, my 10 machine has zero issues. I uninstalled/reinstalled and it's doing the same thing. Anybody else have this issue? Both...
