  • Re: Shameless request for fabulous prizes (AMD Ryzen Last Clip Standing)

    Dear Icrontic,

    AMD is giving away a PC powerful enough to launch the space shuttle. I need it.

    This is a common misconception about spacecraft computers; there does not exist anything even remotely architecturally similar to a redundant spacecraft computer in the PC hardware space. Both the performance required and demand for these kinds of computers are not very high which is why they tend to be old and slow compared to PC hardware. I'm excluding nanosatellites from this sweeping generalization; there's no telling what you kids put together in your garage.

    TL;DR I voted for your clip.

  • Re: Prime's Ryzen build

    I believe that mini ITX is the future. Micro ATX to ATX? Go small or go home. The siren song beckons; join us! I live in a Lian Li PC-Q08B.

    See, I don't think I'm allowed to complain about my cars anymore seeing as I've gone from hell to seemingly heaven. The two major complaints I have about it are its' gas-guzzling tendencies, and how extremely common it is. Everywhere I look I'll find ten, and half of them are white like mine. I'm going to take measures to stand apart from the crowd, like I did with the Geo. I already have black rims, mine has the dinky little spoiler, I'm planning on doing custom decals and the like. And, as with my other cars, I'm looking at upgrades under the hood. Already this car is more powerful than my last two combined, but again, I want to stand apart. That's one of the reasons i bought my doomed Celica.

    Inebriated @drasnor suggests that you are perhaps too self-conscious and that you take solace and pride in the fact that the noble antelope is superior in stature to the mustang and that you, secure in this knowledge. operate your noble steed every day with full disregard to the haters and the envious. Signed, yours truly, @drasnor

  • Re: Cloud Storage 2017

    A friend of mine recommended this service that seems to meet 2 through 6.

    Kinda a bummer that their minimum service tier is twice as much storage as I want for thrice as much as I want to pay for it. I might inquire if they were willing to do 50 GB for $30.

  • Re: TweakDragon 1st build

    I'd suggest getting the cheapest name-brand DDR3 you can find. This is on sale: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226398
