    Remastering "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" with Machine Learning

    Blu-ray.com gives a Sept 20, 2022 release date. But I know this Complete Series box set has been around since 2016.

    Do you remember your history of smartphones?

    I held on to WP from 2010 to 2018. What finally pushed me to Android was Work requiring 2FA apps that weren't available on WP. Duo Mobile dropped WP in 2019- and barely updated the app the last year I was using it. We stopped writing service catalog KB articles for WP users long before that. I...

    Gaming in your 40s

    The Gen-Zs can't take a digital beat down like previous gens. Too much victimhood- it's either you're a filthy try-hard or your cyber-bulling them.

    Gaming in your 40s

    The only issue with that is we can't game forever. The crew I regularly play with is roughly the same age as me. Some grandparents. Some freshly into retirement. All of us are hitting the increased health-mgmt issues we see post 50. X had a stroke, and stopped playing for a few months. Y went...

    Gaming in your 40s

    I think I was 11 or 12 when I first played Star Raiders on a neighbor's Atari 800 8-bit. I had played 2600 video games for years before that- but Star Raiders was the hook that started me on PC gaming, and it's never left me since. 54 now. This past Wednesday marked the 26th birthday of Team...

    The Router Recommendations Thread (Consumer)

    Looking to replace my aging Netgear Nighthawk AC1750- not in a hurry to do WiFi6 since I have a lot of IoT. But I'm in a urban area where channel saturation is an issue, and Netgear's auto channel mgmt is a cruel joke. Anyone have any experience with Synology? I love their NASs.

    Steam Deck officially announced by Valve

    I've never had an issue with his channels/content. I think his broadcast persona is pretty good compared to when he started as a retail voicebox for NCIX. I'm still entertained by his masterful seques into advertising content. I've worked with 20-year broadcasting professionals that can't...

    What Mouse and Keyboard Are You Using Right Now?

    Believe me, I considered it. If the Sidewinder wasn't so garish-looking I would've done it. My cubicle mates already think I'm weird having a Model M at my desk.

    What Mouse and Keyboard Are You Using Right Now?

    I was on weighted mice for a long time. (Logi MX518, MSFT SideWinder) I loved having the weight, but hated having to switch back to unweighted mice (laptop and at work) That really screws with your muscle memory. After my last Sidewinder crapped out, I switched to unweighted.

    What Mouse and Keyboard Are You Using Right Now?

    I'm big fan of the Pro Intellimouse MSFT brought back three years ago. And I've had IM 3.0 and the Sidewinder gaming Mice in my mouse history too. Strangely, MSFT has been the most dependable for me- and I've had Logi and Corsair mice. AMAZ has it for cheap right now, I paid $48 for it two...

    Ratpadz XT

    Another Ratpadz thread to watch! Got mine from the 2011 [H] show in Dallas. There was a tall stack of them and I got two. Shoulda grabbed the lot and bolted.

    Is this UPS dead or is it just the batteries?

    When the UPS is fully charged and you pull the power cable, does the connected gear stay on? If it doesn't the battery is no more. I got four years out of my last UPS, and it powered a 4bay NAS, router, modem and switch. (850VA) It was a Cyberpower too, and I couldn't locate a replacement...

    Cowboy Beebop live action at Netflix!

    Haven't watched Macross, but I have almost all of her CB and GiTS:SAC discography. The NBebop soundtrack lines up pretty well with the 98' stuff. There are some new versions of the 98' themes. The new stuff is good but a some of it is short cues and brief themes.
