    Can "Autopilot" be added to your car (not just tesla) for $1000?

    I just watched some.....no bad. It's interesting tech, but I don't ever see myself wanting it for any reason.

    Can "Autopilot" be added to your car (not just tesla) for $1000?

    I did read it....just skimmed some of it. Always nice to see forum asshats stick around long term.

    Can "Autopilot" be added to your car (not just tesla) for $1000?

    I wonder how these systems do on roads with barely visible lane lines...I see plenty of roads that need to be re-painted.

    Malware Threats on Macs now double that of Windows

    Can we finally kill the urban legend that Macs are safer than Windows PC's? I wish I had a dollar for how many times I've heard "Apple doesn't get virus' and stuff". "Mac threats increased exponentially against Windows PCs. The volume of Mac threats increased year-over-year by more than 400...

    Tesla disables feature after car is purchased, claims feature 'wasn't paid for'.

    This is how you kill customer trust in a brand. It's enough for me to never spend my money on anything Tesla.

    Serious Nix' flaw in sudo hands over root privileges

    Sudo, a utility found in dozens of Unix-like operating systems, has received a patch for a potentially serious bug that allows unprivileged users to easily obtain unfettered root privileges on vulnerable systems.

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

    okayyy.....had to just skip all the posts. The first ep was good enough, but I'm not paying for another streaming service just to follow it. Without getting mired in this thread-mess, I'll just say the political themes in the episode were pretty blatant. It's only the first episode, but it...

    Windows 95. Seriously

    Winworld has a lot of resources for these old OS's including ISO's, boot media, and patches. Just go to the library and pick the OS. https://winworldpc.com/home

    Windows 95. Seriously

    If it's an old cd drive, many of them were pretty pickey about the brand of cdr disk they would read. There also were speed issues....like if it was a 2x cdrom, you had to burn them at the slowest rate in your cdburner.

    Windows 95. Seriously

    THIS. I used to have one rig with every OS from my personal experience, but had to downsize. I don't have any rigs with anything before Windows 98se anymore....but I still have working rigs of everything newer.

    Gamers hate the Epic Game Store but spent $680 million there anyway.

    Your argument is pretty unclear. Basically you got bored with a couple of games = the storefront is terrible = every game from them from now on is crap? :rolleyes: You can move the games, it just isn't a simple copy/paste. You know Rockstar has a game launcher now too right? I'm not an Epic...

    Memory stick configuration..

    This might be a dumb question (seeing how long I've been around), but motherboards with 4 slots don't care weather you max the memory in two or four sticks do they? This is assuming they aren't as finicky as some boards were years ago....but is there even any advantage in running 2x16's vs 4x8...

    How much power do you need these days?

    My $.02: Get a new PSU around the 650w range. It's gives some head-room for your power needs, won't break the bank, and eliminates any worries about screwing your new build. Keep the old one as a spare for a retro rig/emergency's/help a friend.

    Noctua NF-A12x25 PWM, still the best 120mm silent fan?

    +100 IMO for Noctua. AFAIK they're still tops for quiet fans. I just modded a case to replace 80mm intake fans (had space for 4, but 3 installed) with a NF-A14-FLX 140mm. I can barely hear it running...it's just under 20db at full speed and I haven't even tried lowering the rpm's yet.
