    How much RAM you got?

    Still 32GB in my laptop, Wishing I could up it to 64GB but the machine is incapable. Between VMs, multiple build projects and multiple browsers with untold tabs open I'm running deep in swap these days. 4GB is a light day, Have seen it upwards of 30GB of swap partition use. nEeD mOrE POWAH.

    Activision Blizzard CEO To Get Even Bigger Bonuses...

    Sad, I remember the days long ago when they made good games. They are now just a husk of what they once were. Greed killed Blizzard.

    Windows 10 users fume: Microsoft, where's our 'local account' option gone?

    I just bought a new little Asus Vivobook L203MA and made the mistake of connecting to WiFi during the OOBE setup and it would NOT let me create a offline account, even with a hard reboot and cutting the router off. Just kept throwing a unable to connect error and try again button. I ended up...

    Athlon XP Barton for retro gaming pc?

    This reminds me of my old AXP 2400+ mobile rig I built in highschool, was just barely fast enough to play doom3 with a heavy overclock on cpu and gpu with the shitty FX5700le. I built it in a Thermaltake Xaser III which I got on sale from frys. I had a Zalman CNPS-7700-CU precariously strapped...

    Volvo to Impose 112 MPH Speed Limit on All New Cars from 2020

    I feel like quite a few of you have never been out west of the Mississippi! There are ALOT of Texas, Nevada, Utah, and Colorado roads where you can run 100+ all day without issue.

    Forbes Tries To Game on Linux

    Ever since Windows 10 came out in 2015 I haven't been able to take microsoft windows products seriously. Between the lack of control and customization of the OS, the forced updates, including drivers "updates" that crater the system, the spying and phoning home on users, The vastly shortened...

    Are computers becoming more and more boring to you?

After that point there would be times where I wouldn't touch a computer for weeks at a time and would groan at the thought of having to boot one up to pay a bill or...

    Google and Facebook are Already Accused of Breaking GDPR Laws

    Privacy is one of the most important and most easily lost rights we have these days. In the last few years I have removed myself from all social media. all but one email account (proton mail) and all but two forums ( [H] being one of them ). Even then data is still probably being scrapped from...

    Amazon Prime at Whole Foods

    For those of us with Celiac Disease Whole Foods is a godsend. Its one of a few or the sole source for many Celiac safe items. Any relief from the "Celiac Tax" (Higher prices for certified gluten free foods) is a GOOD thing! Hope it rolls out across the country soon and they include gluten free...
