    New build locks up.

    You could have a bad processor. Hard locks are tough to diagnose without one extra of each item. Hard lock is usually bad component. Memory problems cause reboots, program crashes etc along with the possible hard lock.

    This will become much more common. Doctors and lawyers don't like paying for expensive IT. They don't see it as an equal to what they do but it's getting very expensive fast.

    PFsense is killing me. SHould I go USG?

    I've used pfSense quite a bit and not had your experience. Are you sure its your router and not your modem? Its intermittent so its going to be hard to test. USG works fine but personally I think Ubiquiti's best days are behind them.

    SSD pricing, bigger or faster?

    Honestly if it isn't a boot drive or game drive you won't notice the difference. Running apps like office adobe will not show much difference at all or being used as a data store will show no difference for normal users.

    Does it turn off? as it no warning and its just off? or do you see any dump screen/black screens?

    Ryzen issues with Linux

    I doubt you had that many out-of-the-box bad parts. The statistics on that are unreal. However you probably had one part cause others to fail and chain events after.

    Crucial MX500 1TB M.2 not being seen by HP Envy 17t-K200 CTO

    Make sure you are not in Raid mode. Some laptops will not see a m.2 in raid mode. Secure boot and UEFI is fine.

    cat6 wired house network dropped from 1000 to 100mb for no clear reason?!

    Go buy a network tester. They are fairly cheap and will tell you if all 8 wires are correctly wired and connected. If any of the 8 wires are not correct or not connected it will fall back to 100mb/s.

    Windows 10 VS. WinXP on older hardware

    Of course you could never connect it to the internet because the architecture in that OS is not capable of being updated to modern standards due to the MANY missing layers of security. It's like saying a car from the 30's with a modern Corvette engine would be really fast. We don't live in...

    Uber Calls MIT Study Concluding Drivers Make Less than $4 an Hour “Flawed”

    Make Computer Science a Graduation Requirement, Says College Board

    Windows won't shutdown, only restart

    Experience. I'd say 80% of the time a system will restart when trying to shut down its bad motherboard. Very rarely it was a power supply or bad card/hdd/cd connected. Either way its not software or drivers. When the operating system send the command to shut down then it's entirely in the...

    Tampa Man Says Apple AirPod Earphone Blew Up

    And I'm sure he will say they have never been dropped or damaged. Most batteries self-destruct from damage, not internal failure. Media tends to ignore this since it doesn't sound like exciting news once you mention that.

    Ever looked into the by-products of creating the batteries and the disposal? Also thee the mines where the materials are extracted. Human rights violations galore, child labor etc. We have to start looking at the big picture not just one side that makes us look or feel good about ourselves.
