    Hypothetical ? about VPNs

    I have a what if question about nesting VPNs. Suppose I am subscribed to PIA, Nord and Express anonymous VPN services. What would happen if they were all active? Would there be 3, 2, then 1 levels of encryption on the connection as it exits each VPN service? Or would it end up as a total...

    onboard graphics

    Does a motherboard with an HDMI/Display port require a CPU with an integrated GPU? Or is the GPU somewhere on the motherboard? I am piecing together a system and I selected Asrock X570M Pro4 and a Ryzen 7 3700X. I do not need a graphics card. Onboard will do fine for what I need. The...

    GBWR: Largest Collection of Video Games

    I heard this on the radio this morning. I wonder how much this cost? How many were bought new or used? What percent of those games he has completed? Or if any of those games include some of the very rare ones such as the NES World Championships cartridge. This gamer has the world’s largest...

    EU passes the "link tax"

    If Google, FB and the other big boys decide to discontinue the news services instead of deal with it, I bet the EU's major news sites will suffer the same fate as Spain's did in 2014-2015. Traffic to them plummeted.

    EU passes the "link tax"

    Article 13 creates just as bad of a predicament. Can you imagine what would happen to Youtube, plus many other sites, if we had such a law as article 13? There was an article I read a few years ago titled "Welcome to the Splinternet". As major regions and countries start making their own laws...

    Loading website on port 1433 without using “:1433”

    I convinced her to just go with ":1433" Told her that the browser will only support 443 and 80 without the extra port specification. Other options are more costly and impractical. The exact URL can simply be saved as a bookmark. "Is it really worth buying a load balance or reverse proxy...

    Classic World of Warcraft Content Progression Revealed

    I remember reading an article a long time ago about how joining a top-notch raiding guild was just as, or more, complicated than writing the perfect resume to get a high paying job. And, god forbid, the guild you are in is so hardcore that the leader tells you, "I don't care if your only child...

    Classic World of Warcraft Content Progression Revealed

    I am looking forward to this. My main motivator is to participate in the opening opening of the Gates of Ahn'Qiraj. Though a full experience of classic will be new because when I first join WoW, shortly after the AQ patch was released, I was a soloist. So I never learned about the difference...

    Diablo Is Now Available for Purchase on GOG

    Remember how rampant cheating and hacking was on the games. I remember an app called Bobafet. One of its abilities was to create a hotkey which would instantly kill all other players on the dungeon level you were on. You could then steal their gear. The flaw of it was that each...

    YouTube Disables Comments on Videos with Minors

    This has its pros and cons. As mentioned above, pedos could leave timestamps for particularly appealing scenes. I have no clue how often that happens. But I do know that some channels with minors as the main participant rely heavily on comments. For instance. My daughter watches a lot of...

    Scammers Blackmail YouTubers with Copyright Claims

    I bet if filing a false DMCA/copyright claim became an enforced criminal offense and those who take down are considered an accomplice. Then Youtube would really be putting some work into verifying these claims before implementing sentence. Too bad.

    This is what happens when what's more important is to release a game by a specific date than to release a thoroughly tested game with minimal bugs and glitches. Glitches are like honeypots to the curious gamer. A glitch that exposed this secret room. hmmm. I'll check that out.

    Found my first MP3 player

    The only drivers available from Creative are XP drivers. Before I disassembled it, I tried to access it on Windows 10 and Windows 7. No luck. I suspect I would need to install a VM of Windows XP to conventionally access it. I could reassemble it to be displayed as an artifact for a computer...

    I did consider that. Replacement batteries were about $8 - $15 each. But what are the odds of me using it since my smartphone can serve the same purpose plus a better interface, organizational features, and not require wired earbuds.
