Re: What games did you become really good at?

Pinball. I've even crafted entire pinball playlists carefully optimized to help me power through 1hr+ games and rack up insane new high scores. But I suck at Doom. The game itself even agrees: IMG_0029.jpg I don't know if my CRT is getting weak or I just happen to be a Doom Numbskull, but it took me …

Re: Nvidia adaptergate

Space heaters are meant to radiate... heat. That's their sole purpose in life. :-) But, more importantly, space heaters are preassembled (and they are really not that complex to begin with), so there is nothing "DIY" about them. Even your average grandma can go to the store, buy one, come home, …

Re: Games don't feel as exciting as they used to

Au contraire. I played Spider-Man Remastered for hours last night. And the night before. And even during lunch a few days ago. It's exhilarating . Actually, I find myself enjoying new games just a skosh more than the older ones as of late! But hey - I still love the classics! Grew up playing them, …

Re: Nvidia adaptergate

Yeah, AMD's drivers are fine these days. Which is why I'm hoping & praying that the RX 7000 delivers at least RTX 3090 level ray-tracing performance. If it does, I will totally be picking one up! Ah hell, even if it's a little below the 3090 in RT, I'll still pick one up, assuming stellar …

Re: 98 Beige box time capsule - unlocked Pentium II Klamath or odd Motherboard? What do you think?

Aren't most Klamath CPUs unlocked? I have an unlocked 233 and 300. The 300 will do 333 (and heat a room). If I remember correctly, Intel started locking all of their CPUs with the Deschutes core. To answer your question, multiplier control is entirely dependent on the CPU. No motherboard will ever …

Re: Bought this (Modern) hardware today

Picked up the PIII-S of LGA2011 today: a Xeon E5-1680 v2. Got it from a guy who was selling a bunch of his old Mac gear because the latest OS wouldn't run on it. What is it, Venturi? Ventura? Nine out of ten pet detectives recommend it? Anyway, really nice (and knowledgeable!) fellow. I even learned …
