    Linus Media Group YouTube Channels Hacked

    I don't know if I'd call it jealousy, I think they just see him doing something in a way they have idealogical or philisophical issues with (like he shouldn't be able to make money the way he does) and run with it. I don't care one way or another, I just don't watch his stuff. Problem solved...

    RoboCop: Rogue City Gameplay Video

    Agreed. It's more relevant now than ever. I think the game looks promising, I hope it's good!

    One of the worse PC builds you seen.....

    A few years ago, I flew out to one of our offices as we were rolling out iManage. One individual in this office had said her DVD drive was no longer working, so we had a replacement shipped to the office. When I got to her office to replace it (these were SFF PCs that used a laptop DVD drive)...

    One of the worse PC builds you seen.....

    One of my earlier builds, I didn't use thermal paste with the CPU fan. It ran OK until I did anything intensive, lol. I had to talk to another guy I worked with to figure out what I had done wrong as there weren't any other resources at the time. I'm pretty sure what was even before hardforum.

    One of the worse PC builds you seen.....

    This did remind me of my early days of PC upgrades where I would use two screws to screw in one side of the hard drive, but it was really that I didn't know any better and wasn't thinking about the mechanical drive moving around with only two screws on one side of it. This...this was something...

    Microsoft to Remove Ability to Install Win 11 Pro Without Being Online and Signing in to Microsoft Account

    I'm mainly a gamer, so while I hear Linux has gotten better at gaming, I still seeing most saying to stick with Windows. I also have an arcade machine and a HTPC that runs KODI. I'm doing a little 4K movie ripping and while I do see there is a Beta version of MakeMKV that runs on Linux, I'm...

    Microsoft to Remove Ability to Install Win 11 Pro Without Being Online and Signing in to Microsoft Account

    I had the exact same reaction. Thinking about switching everything to Linux gives me anxiety. Windows 10 works fine.

    Researchers use GPU fingerprinting to track users online

    I wouldn't think future work would be impacted unless potentially it was your idea to implement the idea in the first place. If you're just the implementer, I don't think that really reflects negatively on you. A lot of companies want workers that won't raise a stink about what they've been...

    Star Citizen and Squadron 42 are still years from launch, CIG confirms

    Agree with those upset about buying in for Squadron 42 and not caring about Star Citizen. I regret giving them $45, but I'm glad it was only that much. I'm also sure that in 2027, we'll all be told it will all be ready in 2032 and on and on.

    I watched 90 minutes or M4 and turned it off. I may get around to finishing it someday, not sure. I agree with those who were saying it did nothing to move the story forward. I kept asking myself why it was made. Also the flashbacks kept reminding me Morpheus and Agent Smith were recast...

    EPIC Games $10 off coupon in cart: BF2042 $29.59, Back 4 Blood $26, Hades $7, CyberPunk $19.99, Borderlands 3 $4.99...

    The Scott Pilgrim vs The World game is available on the Epic Store for $7.49. It vanished from all digital storefronts for a long time, but recently resurfaced. It's a pretty good brawler!

    Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition

    Yeah, if you've already bought them, they won't vanish. The original versions just can't be purchased going forward, which is still bullshit, but not as bad.

    Thousands of Playstation 5 consoles being stockpiled by Walmart

    Fair enough. You never know if you get someone like that or a "respect my authoritah" type that will make it into a thing. From my perspective, it only takes a second. They barely look at the receipt, put a mark on it, and send you on your way.

    Thousands of Playstation 5 consoles being stockpiled by Walmart

    I know a guy that got tackled by a bar's bouncer because he wouldn't let them check his wife's purse for one of their precious "stein" mugs. She didn't have one, the tackling guy got fired (and is still salty about it over a decade later), and the guy sued (don't tackle attorneys when you have...

    Cowboy Beebop live action at Netflix!

    I've see most of those and prefer Cowboy Bebop over Grave of the Fireflies. However, that's really comparing apples to oranges as they are very different in tone and style. I was very frustrated with the characters in it, which may affect my perception of it. It was very well made. I love...

    Twitch Majorly Leaked

    I either listen to music or a Twitch stream or two while I'm working. If I have time, I'll interact with the streamer and others in chat too. It's more than just "watching someone else do something". I love horror movies, but can't play horror games as they stress me out too much. It's not...

    Cowboy Beebop live action at Netflix!

    Oh noes, I just don't know if Cowboy Bebop would be the same without butt shots and cleavage. I mean, that's what it was entirely know for, right? That was its one and only defining feature?

    Steam Turns 18 YO Today - Rolled Out: Sept. 12 2003

    I also have 16 years, I had to get an account when I bought HL2. I was really annoyed at the time, but at least I had broadband to download it. lol

    Is there a hardware solution for switching between speakers and headphones?

    Was just going to suggest the same thing. The full driver may have this option.

    The trailer didn't look all the interesting to me, I'm still pretty meh on it. I didn't like Reloaded or Revolutions, so I don't have much hope for this one. If it's streaming on HBO Max, will definitely check it out. I still remember going to see Reloaded in the theater with my parents and...

    I had a 4k compatible HTPC, but I needed a discrete GPU to be able to stream movies over Discord during the lockdown. So, that broke the 4k compatibility since I'm not using the Intel Integrated Graphics. I've just been ripping my 4k discs, it's so much easier anyways (though I had to jump...

    Beware of Exploding Gigabyte PSU's being Dumped by Newegg in Forced Bundles

    I can't speak for all their shuffles, but I was watching them for a couple months while I was looking for a PS5 and the cards were part of bundles more often than not. I think I only saw them by themselves once or twice. But that was back in April/May, so that could be changing. That said...

    This Robot Does All the Cooking For You

    I don't care about getting laid on a first date, but I would definitely cook to impress said date. I would love a cooking robot. I do enjoy cooking, but sometimes I just heat up a frozen pizza or get food delivered. Sometimes, I just need to veg after work and don't have the energy to cook...

    Netflix plans video game expansion

    I don't think they're planning on making their own games. But if they did, yes, I would expect mostly garbage.

    Mass Effect Legendary Edition

    I'm part way through ME3 and even though I've played through all three several times, I've run into a couple sequences I hadn't seen before like a conclusion to the Conrad Verner saga, lol. I wondered if it had been added to the Legendary Edition, but nope, I just hadn't triggered it before...

    Official PS5 Thread

    I finally got my PS5 from Target a couple weeks ago. I almost paid $800 to Gamestop for a bundle that had a bunch of games I didn't want. I'm glad I didn't do that, lol. The new Ratchet & Clank is pretty fun!

    John McAfee

    You have more faith in his word than I do. I don't trust anything he had to say. Also, suicidal people don't always announce they're suicidal, so that he says he was happy doesn't mean anything.

    John McAfee

    He was more than a bit erratic. It's entirely plausible he just killed himself. I'm more willing to believe Epstein didn't kill himself than McAfee. We'll most likely never know one way or another with 100% certainty, just like Epstein.

    I somehow managed to finally buy a PS5 from the Target drop last week. Normally, I just get errors when I attempt to buy them until they go out of stock. But, this time it went right through on the first try using the browser on my phone. I have no idea why it worked fine that time, lol! I...

    There were PS5 drops for both Amazon and GameStop today, I wasn't able to get either one despite being on the sites during the drops. It's so crazy that it's so hard to get something in stock into a cart and checkout. lol

    I was sound asleep when that happened, lol. I'm watching a couple trackers on Twitter, I'm hoping I get one eventually. I almost bought a bundle at Gamestop, but it was crazy expensive and had a lot of stuff I didn't care about it. I keep hoping for a bundle with an extra controller and a...
