    How far behind would a TRUE copper be in the current era?

    Well you never know, maybe someone has a mainboard that can handle 4.189lbs but no more.

    help troubleshooting network file trasnfers

    Actually that's a really good question. I'll see what I can do, all I have that still uses wired is my desktop and my old pi3. See if I can get that to do it.

    Apple Discontinues Last iPod Model

    Actually I had a Rio back in the day ...one of the first ones that transferred through the parallel port. Yeah the software was a little cumbersome, but it wasn't really much different than itunes when it came around for the sync side of things. It was slow as molasses however and yeah the UI...

    Apple Discontinues Last iPod Model

    Well I can't say that I hate the iPod, but I never saw it as anything special. I just saw it as over hyped and overpriced. Just another fad. It did it's job and did it well, but there was plenty of other devices that worked just as well or better for less money. I do concede that it was itunes...

    Apple Discontinues Last iPod Model

    Out of curiosity, am I the only one that really didn't like the iPod from the beginning? They came out when I was in high school. I always hated how you had to draw circles on it as if it was a knob to change the volume. Sound quality never impressed me. Thought they were overpriced. Went with a...

    Upgrade or wait: mid 2022 edition

    Pretty much. I'm not into most new games or eSports so it works out in my favor. My monitors are old, 1080p. For me, it only makes sense to wait as long as I can. More so expressing my frustration at the way the market has been. I would have upgraded 2 years ago if not for the insane prices.

    EKWB Lays Off 25% of Workforce, Blames Lower Watercooling Sales

    CPU blocks can stick around for quite a few years with many upgrades. If you're willing to do some modification, even longer. The GPU blocks are a bit of a problem, yes. There are ways....I have never used a full coverage block myself. I have an old swiftech universal block. It only cools the...

    EKWB Lays Off 25% of Workforce, Blames Lower Watercooling Sales

    I'm more concerned about the custom watercooling industry dying off entirely. Sure an AIO is easier and cheaper, but that's not why we do it. Anyone that goes custom knows that it can perform better and be perfectly reliable - maybe even more reliable given that you can choose a high quality...
