Re: Cars now have micro-transactions!

What's worrying is this feature (listed on a UK website as a UK feature and also coming to South Korea?) being present on these cars in 10 years time. For context in the UK the average age of a car on the road in the road is 8.4 years, there are 10 million cars older than 2008 out of 32 million …

Re: See if you can spot what's wrong.....

Ah yes, my mid 2000s Athlon x2 5200 that I paired with 16GB if RAM, I remember it well! Honestly though the underlying principle of the article is sound. There used to be some value in Sli/xfire builds but I certainly don't think there is anymore. Either for the fastest frame rates or pairing two …

What is this sound card and troubleshooting

I picked up a socket 7 system and it came with a QuickShot Pro16 Plus sound card. From a quick Google older QuickShot cards were a exact copy/ rebrand of a Sound Blaster 2.0 card but this clearly isn't with it's opti and analogue devices chips. Has anyone used this card? I can't actually get it to …

Re: What modern activity did you get up to today?

Setting up a new trackingboard and I can't find my HDMI to DisplayPort cables that we had budgeted out months ago.. Christ, I want to hit someone. Everything I've been doing lately has been riddled with setbacks and now this shit. I thought you couldn't do HDMI to DP? They aren't compatible but DP …

Re: What modern activity did you get up to today?

Today I'm building a dinky m-ATX project PC to sit alongside my main ATX project PC (which itself sits alongside my actual newish main non- project PC). It's built around a 4c8t ivybridge Xeon CPU on a cheapo 1155 motherboard with 8GB of DDR3. It's going to have a 256GB SSD (because my 750GB one is …

Re: Reasons to hate modern games

File size itself isn't really a reason to hate modern games but I would say content bloat is. Games that have 80 hours of content of which only 20 hours actually matter and further the story. I'm looking at you, Assassins Creed: The New Ones. By reducing the gameplay hours from 80 to 20 hours that …

Re: What do you drive?

I took an e-scooter to work today instead of driving. They're illegal to use on public roads in the UK, except for specific city council run trial schemes and Southampton has one of those. It took the same amount of time to do my 20 minute commute. It costs the same as all day parking (99p to unlock …

Re: HUGE collection for sale on eBay

Now is my cynicism's time to shine! Someone went into Computer Reset and made out with a literal lorry load of computers knowing that they could flip 99% of it in a year's time when CR was closing up properly or all the good stuff is gone. It's like scalping PS5s but for PS/2s HAHAHA christ I'm …
