    FS: Homeworld 3 Multiple Editions & Ghost of Tsushima DIRECTOR'S CUT - Steam

    ... I'm sorry, but can you buy other games that aren't Homeworld at a discount?

    Not yet, will also try that later today. Edit: Nope, tried the paper clip trick, didn't even get a spark. Oh well! Time for an adapter.

    The system uses a smaller version of an ATX power connector - the pinout is exactly the same, I just have to buy an adapter so I can plug it into the board. I still have an older EVGA PSU from my previous computer build so I'll try to get an adapter. Thanks for the suggestions, all. :)

    Yep, this is the kind of PSU I'm trying to get. I checked the board for any bulging or leaking capacitors after it wouldn't turn on, and everything seemed fine. But I suppose I could also try to use an ATX PSU with an adapter first, to be sure it's the power supply?

    Does anyone have a working HP slimline power supply that would fit in an HP Pavilion s7000 series mini PC? I realize it's kinda dumb to try to fix up one of these old systems, but I needed a PC from that specific era for a project and I took a gamble on one at the nearby flea market, but it...

    Closed.

    The Reddit BuildAPCSales mods have banned Woot keys from being advertised there due to people getting bad keys, so I'd avoid buying one from there.

    PayPal is no longer safe against scammers...

    You say AliExpress... do you mean like, the company, or a third party seller there? PayPal is useful but you really shouldn't be using it on businesses that even seem slightly dodgy for one reason or another. That's why you use credit cards with buyer protection instead. PayPal will only go so far.

    Time for me to give something back for once. https://i.imgur.com/bxsiTDe.jpg Anyone want this Black Magic Design DeckLink Mini Monitor card?

    How many % of today's PC can be windows 12 ready? And why is Windows 10 lifespan shorter than prev. version?

    That's just for version 21H2 of Windows 11 - the original one according to Wikipedia. They're saying, "We won't support this version because you haven't updated it to the latest build." If you're on 22H2 (the 2022 update) then you're good for around one more year. If you're on 23H2, you're...

    how to minimize eBay ship costs?

    I agree on the YMMV thing. My local post office refused to let me send anything Media Mail for a decade, no matter how much I argued for it. They once stopped me from sending a comic book TPB that was fully eligible based on their "no ads" requirements. Once the postmaster was moved to another...

    WTB/WTTF: Old shareware / demo / gaming magazine discs

    You'd be surprised at how much stuff is missing from there. And yes, there's a collector's market, which means some eBay sellers are trying to charge me $15 per demo. But I don't want to resell these, just fill in holes in my collection and research data for others to use. I have a near...

    WTB/WTTF: Old shareware / demo / gaming magazine discs

    Hey folks. I collect old game magazine CDs / DVDs, demo discs, sampler discs, that sorta thing, and I figured I might as well ask if anyone here has some they'd like to part with - preferably for cheap, or in exchange for other items. I mostly do this to document various builds, patches, or...

    how to minimize eBay ship costs?

    So here's another thing I forgot to mention about the flat rate envelopes. USPS employees really don't like it when people use the thinner, paper ones to ship anything that isn't documents or something that isn't very thin. I wanted to use one to ship a CD and they refused the package. Also...

    how to minimize eBay ship costs?

    I've been selling things on eBay for 20 years. So I have some shipping advice. For shipping smaller things that fit in an envelope through USPS, eBay and Pirate Ship are functionally the same, they both have the same cost. Media Mail is the same, as well. (Though this is just for CDs, DVDs and...

    Windows 7/8 Product Key to install Windows 10 workaround - possibly no longer

    Of course they finally put down the old activation servers right after I'm about to build my next PC. So sad. All my Windows 7s, useless. (Actually I wanted to keep a couple of licenses for semi-retro gaming use.) Gonna have to figure out how to use Massgrave.

    I've been eyeing your post since it went up... but I honestly don't think I have anything worth offering in trade. Unless you want like, old movies or something. Your prices are good, I'm just broke until I sell stuff on eBay.

    Windows 7/8 Product Key to install Windows 10 workaround - possibly no longer

    Damn, I have like, six or seven different Windows 7 and 8 retail packs that I never activated for the free upgrade. There's no way to add them to an MS account so they can be used in new systems, right? Not even if I swap the license keys via the activation system built into Windows?

    Longshot, but: Would you take Steam keys for Darksiders 1 + 2 Remastered (includes the originals with all DLC, too) + Biomutant + Zoo Tycoon Ultimate Animal Collection in exchange for it? Plus some other stuff from here if you want to sweeten the deal: http://foxhack.net/stuff/humblelist.txt

    Yep, this should be mostly complete, except for the odd CD I missed in my storage boxes. I don't mind getting duplicates, any extras will be used to replace damaged items (scratches, scuffs, etc), traded, or resold in lots to cover more purchases.

    That's the plan, whenever possible. Some stuff is already out there in the form of isos, but they rarely have contents listed.
