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 architectura…
We're pretty far past the part where I would've taken @BlueTattoo 's advice and just installed Linux since Windows XP is several years past security patch termination and you can't run modern software or connect to the Internet without catching a vi…
I think I figured out why it won't boot. I don't know where I was looking but I damaged the connector cable from the board to the ssd... Would it be easier to get a replacement cable for the first machine? Or use one to f…
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.
Ncase best case
That case is awesome.
How does it handle?
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…
You're positive it's a Micro SD card? This board has some sort of mini/micro SIM card holder on the left, a full-size SD card slot on the right, and the blue board in the middle appears to be a solid-state hard drive.
Just out of curiosity: If you want to keep the price down, the motherboard has a perfectly good sound controller on-board. Any super-compelling reason you would…
This is why @drasnor works in engineering and not PR.
Eh, the PR folks did their thing in a public-friendly way. I'm in no way an authorized spokesperson and I figured y'all would appreciate the humor.
Didn't you guys just scrub the launch today?
This mission was previously delayed from 2/18 due to an anomalous response in a redundant upper stage thrust vector control actuator. A redundant system of t…
I'm currently running the SpiderOak demo and it looks like it'll do what I need. I'm definitely choked by my network's upstream bandwidth for the initial upload but it seems to be quick enough on down-sync. I'd like a little more shell integration b…
If you'd like me to make some concrete recommendations, I'd be happy to, but I don't like giving unsolicited advice if it's not desired.
This thread is all about soliciting advice. That said, in my overall calculus I don't r…
Never roll over a credit card balance and never, ever take out a cash advance on a credit card. Cash advances are rigged by the creditor so as to charge you interest from the very moment you take out the advance. Worse yet, even …
So, what is the typical billing period? I figure it's monthly but does it start a month after "activation" or is it more rigid?
One month. Initial activation usually has a shorter period to get you onto the typical bill…
Oh okay, like I said I'm brand new, had no idea about Ryzen. I'll wait a bit. I already have a mouse, keyboard, but would need a nice monitor.
Thanks for the help!
Let us know if you have any questions about what …
On a more general note, when you're building a computer you'll want to budget for:
* The Key Three: Motherboard, Processor (CPU), Memory (RAM). Most people buy these all at the same time for compatibility reasons. Most people have strong opinio…
Why not something like OwnCloud?
This is interesting and not something I had found previously. The main limitation I'm seeing is that I still need to run the OwnCloud server on another machine that's possibly independent o…
Why cloud? You only need 40GB of backup? External hard drive or NAS paired with Acronis True Image for daily differentials, and you're done. Bonus - unlike the cloud solution, if you have a hard drive failure, you're only looking at…
Looks like competitive pricing to me.
As someone in SaaS, I'd bet there's no chance they'd take a half-for-half proposition. That they use GB as a tool to move you up price points doesn't mean they actually see $/GB as their co…
