    [Microcenter In-Store Deal] $99 Creality Ender 3 Pro

    These "new customer only" coupons can be frustrating. They require a "real" cell phone number to verify. Google Voice didn't work for me. I make it a habit of collecting cheap prepaid lines and activating them for promos like this. I got two free 240GB SATA SSDs at the Tustin, CA store while...

    Pixel 6 / Pixel 6 Pro

    I foolishly believed Best Buy when they said "preorder today, pickup on 10/28" at my local store, so I cancelled my Google Store order that had an estimate of 11/3-11/4. I got an email last night saying that my order was delayed but that they were still working on it. I wonder if Google...

    Intel Core i9-12900K, i7-12700K, i5-12600K Specs, Pricing & New TDP!

    Like last time I am expecting a price drop a few months after these hit retail, once AMD fires back with Zen 3D.

    Rumor: Nvidia allegedly halting RTX 3000 production this October to keep prices as high as possible until 1H22

    I dunno, I kind of think that this is all part of NVIDIA's ploy to ratchet up prices for the next gen.

    Hosting Servers behind CG-NAT (port forwarding through WireGuard tunnel)

    I have recently switched to T-Mobile Home Internet, and speeds have been great. I have been getting between 150 and 300 Mbps download, and 50-100 Mbps upload most of the time. However, I host a few services from home and need to be able to expose them to the outside Internet. I purchased a...

    ryzen 7 5700G: How do you connect the video out ?

    No separate Luma and Chroma? Bummer. Hopefully it's at least composite and not RF out. Yuck!

    Remembering deals of yesteryear

    I finally found out that you need Firefox, along with a TamperMonkey script, in order to snipe RDNA2 cards from on Thursdays. No matter how many times I tried in Chrome it just wouldn't work. But I managed to snag a 6700 XT at MSRP, if just barely.

    Remembering deals of yesteryear

    Sometimes I like to look at my eBay purchase history and wonder how we have strayed so far from reasonable GPU prices. Anybody else? And no, I don't own any of these cards any more. Most of these went into builds that ended up with friends or family.

    why is AMD always behind on video decoding support? if decoding is a separate module?

    That P4 Willamette isn't that old. Right guys? Right? I would have killed for one of those back in 2000. We had some in the library at my middle school (No clue how they got the money for that). They ran circles around my 166Mhz Pentium at home.

    GPU Shortage Got You Down? GeForce GT 730 Makes a Comeback
