    DOOM Eternal: 12 Minutes of Battlemode 2v1 Multiplayer Gameplay - IGN First

    Yawn ... more over-convoluted game play. Looks like Doom MP is a dud, again. Apparently free-for-all overkill style online MP is dead and buried for all time.

    What Is Your Personal Favorite Video Card of All Time?

    Hope nobody minds if I list two. 1] - ASUS GF2 GTS. Upgrading to that from RIVA TNT meant no more slideshow in Quake2 online. Discovered I was actually pretty good. Before long I was beating people in one-on-one and being invited to clan tryouts, then eventually accepted. 2] - BFG...

    CBS Makes Star Trek: Picard Pilot Free On YouTube 'For a Limited Time'

    Announcer: "Next week. Pointy-eared people drunk on blue ale singing Irish pub songs." Could be a thing. Maybe even put a Nazi helmet on this new Spock so we can all wax nostalgic.

    The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics

    Looked around. Didn't see a thread for this title yet. The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics became available for $20 today on Steam, GoG, etc. Modest storage footprint at 5gb. Complete with Fantasy violence and Alcohol reference warnings. Do know from other threads there are many DC...

    Unfortunately it is time to go.......

    Personally, I have enjoyed reading through several great discussions recently that are totally absent of politics and religion. Soapbox too much perhaps? That place never interested me. Kyle's not gone. He popped my warning cherry just the other day.

    CBS Makes Star Trek: Picard Pilot Free On YouTube 'For a Limited Time'

    Roddenberry's ideologies. True. Watching the nazi planet ep had me wondering if STD will have one as VOY did. Doubtful.

    You assume that I haven't recently. We all create the window with which we perceptive the world. To each their own.

    CBS Makes Star Trek: Picard Pilot Free On YouTube 'For a Limited Time'

    I too watched the free premiere on YT. Agenda agenda blah blah blah. While it's true TOS did touch upon controversial topics, they were generally presented in a neutral way leaving the audience to decide. Fact that they touched upon them at all in that era is what was groundbreaking. And we have...

    Whats your "go-to" TIM ?

    Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut is my go to now. Easy too apply. No spreading needed. Viscosity is good enough that clamping pressure spreads a fat rice grain across the CPU and/or GPU. In my Athlon XP days Shin-Etsu X23-7783D was my go to. After lapping the heatsink to near mirror I would rub just...

    Forum Updates?

    Clicking around. Like it so far. Subtle changes like more varied font sizes and such are nice. Double click for 'new posts' will be a minor adjustment. Looking at you on PC version with a 43" screen. Can see a buoy on the bay couple miles away but my old fart eyes don't do tiny cell screens well.

    Neil Young has issues with the MacBook Pro and he's eager to tell you about it.

    Neil Young. Long time fan here. What a man with two honorary music doctorates and decades of studio experience knows about sound quality I cannot say. He is for improving things and I am all for it. For too long we have been subjected to compressed recordings and bass expanded to the moon geared...

    Windows 95. Seriously

    Quick way to check old HDDs. This 80gb Barracuda was in a family member's PC. Early XP install. Windows Defender found over 40 severe threats. Quite sure that system was zombified and painfully sluggish.

    Windows 95. Seriously

    ^^ that is it. Had exact same situation with mine doing a Win98 install. The old XP was hanging things up. Not sure if this is an option for you. What I did was put drive in an external HDD enclosure, open in Win10, and delete everything. Then things went smoothly. [edit] Never mind. See you...

    Windows 95. Seriously

    The way you have the jumpers set in the third image. Not seeing that on the drive label. Went and checked the aforementioned Win98se system. Only three possible options on the HP drive and it's set to 'master' with that and the HDD using individual cables. Your P2 brings back some memories...

    Windows 95. Seriously

    ^^ that is my thinking as well. Perhaps change the drive. Modern Verbatim 52x disks seem to be OK in my WinXP systems. Not sure how this pertains to the blank media issue but I do know the MRW standard did not start until about 2004 and those drives' firmware did not natively support WinXP and...

    "Star Trek: Discovery" Renewed for Season 3

    Watching STD (apt acronym) last night I thought to myself. Screw you Warner Bros/CBS. You took a brand with over 50 year's legacy and shit all over it by making a Star Wars and Marvel stylistic series because you had a hard on for Disney's success with those two franchises and thought Trek fans...

    Windows 95. Seriously

    Win95 is a bit before my time. But you certainly found a good community in which to ask your question. Me. I like old junk too. Just last weekend I was testing old DDR1 modules with MemTest86 from floppies in my newly assembled nForce2 rig.

    "Star Trek: Discovery" Renewed for Season 3

    Yeah, Insurrection was atrocious. Felt like a cheesy spin-off. Glad I did not pay to see it in theater. To be honest, I wish none of the TNG films had been made. With possible exception of First Contact. Even then I dislike what they did to the Borg after that Hugh incident. All down hill from...

    What was your least favorite graphics card?

    Cannot really say that I have a least favorite. Did receive three DOA 7800gs cards in a row. Least favorite part of that was I had to eat over $100 worth of return shipping and required insured mail fees before finally getting a good one. Fourth time's the Charm.

    "Star Trek: Discovery" Renewed for Season 3

    So, is everything going to be in Jar Jar Abrams' dystopian Kelvin timeline from now on, or whatever? To me, and so many others, the loss of Utopian vision, where Mankind and society as a whole had gone a long way to improve itself is a major reason Trek has lost it's way.

    "Star Trek: Discovery" Renewed for Season 3

    Hey now. I just picked up season 2 from the Library. Not expecting much except for some pretty colors to gawk at. Watching season 1 made me feel sorry for those who pay to see it.

    Dow Jones News: Intel Soars on Solid Earnings

    Nice rise on earnings. Kudos to those who got in before Friday. May it carry you well. To capitalize on price changes in companies like this my preference is options over stock. Expiration factor offers greater risk but more profit potential. The calls that I sold for over 500% profit in...

    Sometimes it's the color scheme. This Inno3d iChill does not speak to me. Some may like it. Saw an all black version (special edition?) and it looked much better.

    Ugly GPUs

    Heh .... was going to post about the Yestons and see the n00b beat me to it. :D Some of those hurt my eyes. Gamer's Nexus included that Waifu in their 5700 XT roundup. Subjectivity to be sure. Cultural, whatever. Suppose there is enough a market for that sort of thing if they offer a $1,400...

    Bioshock remastered on Steam .. (deal dead)

    Deal dead now, obviously. Great prices for someone like me who has only played the free demo. Perfect timing since I needed a shooter to hold me over until Doom: Eternal arrives. When trying so save got hit with that ¨Not enough space remaining on the Hard Drive.¨ error. Could not save but...

    Samsung may unveil a true 'zero bezel' TV

    My local news station needs this instead of the 4 panel set up they use now. Completely forgot about my bezel. Now I keep staring at it. Thanks a lot! :cautious:

    The most important PC games of the decade

    Ha! ..... Farmville. Surprised Pokemon Go was not listed. While still locked in their cells, at least it got all those pasty couch kids out side for a while. And maybe they met real people along the way.

    Sandisk Plus 960gb SSD = $80 @ MC

    Nice pricing. Only wish they'd scale the price same at 1tb. Unless I am missing something the Sandisk Ultra/WD blue are about $115 vs $80 for the Plus.

    Sandisk Plus 960gb SSD = $80 @ MC

    Warm? Sandisk Plus 960gb SSD = $80 at MicroCenter. Looks to be about $60 below Amazon and Egg current pricing. Not sure if these 960gb units are DRAM-less or not. Seems to be conflicting info.

    The Best Game Of The Year Actually Won Game Of The Year At The 2019 Game Awards

    Nope. And no surprise there. Not my genre, and don't keep a close eye on the gaming market. Went to go see some YouTube videos of this game. Looks good.

    Ugly GPUs

    Me like. Nice and basic. No flashy multi-colored cartoon characters, or whatever. Agreed. On occasion I feel nostalgic for the pre heat pipe days of massive Copper. Firing up my retro systems with their leaf blower GPU fans cures me of that right quick. And reminds me why I always wore...

    Windows 10 1909

    How is Bluetooth on 1909? 1903 broke mine. Couple independent systems. MS forced the update on me about three months ago and it was ever soooo slow afterward. Most always resulted in time out errors. Nothing fixed the problem until the 1903 cumulative update about two weeks ago. So I am a bit...
