    [H] Stock Alerts, Tips & Tears for Nvidia, AMD, Intel, PS5, XBOX

    Word, I just thought maybe you had some specific insight about a testing methodology I wasn't aware of. Personally I'm giving EVGA a little more "gut feeling" credit than that, but it's not wrong to be skeptical. Watching their pricing day after day out of curiosity mostly, it's been extremely...

    [H] Stock Alerts, Tips & Tears for Nvidia, AMD, Intel, PS5, XBOX

    I mean they were offering 3090 skus at even higher discount percentages relative to MSRP a few days ago. What method of determining "damage"/wear do you believe they have to assign a metric to such? They are offering a year warranty, and it is EVGA, if the card doesn't remotely meet spec, I...

    [Mostly Dead] EVGA B-Stock strikes again

    Any applicable codes to newly regged accounts there? Really wanting to get that 3090 but the like $60 in tax is pushing me from "you'd be crazy to buy this right now" into "you'd be totally fucking insane to buy this right now", I know it doesn't sound like a lot in the scheme of things, it's...

    Older/Used enterprise managed switch advice (cisco, juniper, etc)

    You and me both bro. Good memories though. People that aren't from the south don't realize how much of a rich history there is, and how much all the rest of the country's success has been predicated on. If you're curious about the ol codger, checkout his bio from one of his books on Amazon...

    Older/Used enterprise managed switch advice (cisco, juniper, etc)

    Haha well, pro tip, whiskey helps. Yeah Ghost Town is forever in a state of being for sale, and promises of being reopened. It was an incredible experience as a child though. For those that haven't read the wikipedia entry, it was basically a Wild West themed amusement park on the top of a...

    Older/Used enterprise managed switch advice (cisco, juniper, etc)

    P.S. definitely not my keyboard in the background of that last photo (from customer), I'm a zelotously religious believer and user of split keyboards. Just wish you could get a craptop with one, although I think I recall a vintage model that actually had a built in split kbd that sort of lifted...

    Older/Used enterprise managed switch advice (cisco, juniper, etc)

    Honestly it's not ringing any bells personally, however, it does remind me of a crowd some other makers in the area interact with, Shelby or Charlie maybe, we are a pretty close crowd, especially those of us involved in the ABS (American Bladesmith Society), which I am. The friend I mentioned...

    FS: NEW 1 Year Red Pocket Code + SIM / 3GB Data / Verizon MVNO / $50 shipped

    If for any reason einz didn't take this, let me know, I will. Getting ready to ditch cell phone entirely, except for something to keep in the truck's glovebox in case of emergency or needing gps, this seems perfect for that.

    EVGA Extended Warranties - Submit Your Ticket, Get Your Refund

    Yeah, what other company would even offer this? Any one else would either a) swear they'll cover them for a year or two until they then put out a press release saying they no longer can, but offer you a 10% discount as an apology on a direct purchase of something they currently sell, or b) just...

    RTX 4xxx / RX 7xxx speculation

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm under the impression, that even PSU efficiency certifications only stand at certain loads? Off the top of my head I want to say I remember reading something like 50% of total power? So a 90+ Gold/Platinum PSU will be X efficient at that specific...

    I went to Nvidia products page to check out the new RTX 4xxx GPUs

    I'm pretty sure that's the point. When you're filthy rich and smug as fuck, you do shit just because you can, especially when you're a class A prick who think he has everyone fooled, to boot. I mean just look at that grin. All speculation on my part, but I'd bet a nickel I'm pretty close to...

    RTX 4xxx / RX 7xxx speculation

    Me for one. GPU power cables are notoriously in the way of everything no matter what you do, due to their location in a system. Any change in hardware almost guarantees unplugging them just for sanity but also to not risk physically jostling the heavy ass modern GPUs the PCIE slots can barely...

    RTX 4xxx / RX 7xxx speculation

    It definitely is for me. I'm still rocking a 1080ti, the 20 series didn't have enough performance uptick to justify an upgrade for me, considering demand/prices, with the tiny exception of pre-30 series announcement sell-off which I missed. 30 series prices were outrageous so I held off. I'm...

    Where are the cheap home 2.5G switches?

    Wow 12-57V DC input, I presume that's to meet wide ranging PoE specs but that's hella nice to see it on a barrel jack input, for those of us who live off-grid and power everything direct DC as much as possible. Nice suggestion, thanks!
