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

in Milliways
Spending too much in external computer devices for job remote interviews that requires too much configuration time/effort to be ready for and each time companies use different apps, rules or interview requirements. I even had to buy one of the few newer wifi usb adapter that has linux drivers cause …

Re: Right to repair discussion (split from What retro activity did you get up to today?)

From an enviroment point of view the real benefit I do see on a newer TV would be the total power usage compared to older panels. I still have a functional repaired old TV/monitor 26" not-led backlighted device that ask 150W at the wall with no power saving features when functioning. Instead modern …

Re: Right to repair discussion (split from What retro activity did you get up to today?)

I don't have a 'smart TV' but I was expecting that considering their internal "phone hw" we were talking about having the same lifetime points of discussions. And computers even if much more expandable are not also immune to that. Let's think to vga cards. Some still sold low end cards only has H264 …

Re: Right to repair discussion (split from What retro activity did you get up to today?)

Imho there'd be no problem if some companies would make a closed unrepairable by the consumer product if that would not possibly led theorically others or the entire market to consider that specific road and this seems a time where it's not like there're many products alternatives. I understand many …

Also I quite confirmed that this cheap latest RTL based Wireless N 300Mbps 2,4Ghz USB keys, doing a speed test on a native Win o.s. with its drivers works more or less as expected with both download/ upload speed @ 20Mbps on a 4G wireless hotspot on a slow Atom based system, instead of the 10Mbps/0, …

Technology and job interviews

in Milliways
Hi, Just some thoughts, I was reading that a company job interview I had, didn't go well with the usual automatic negative mail and the "good luck for your job career.." mail line. This make me think about what went wrong beside I know the job description being not perfectly compatible but still …

Re: Noise on pass-through of a Voodoo2 card

From my experience with Voodoo and Dxr3 decoder cards and their cables I am not surprised to see these problems. Imho maybe other brands might have better components or PCB design to avoid that but much might depend on both the VGA original pass cable and the monitor cable itself. Sometimes I've got …

Re: Are GeForce 256 DDR cards that rare?

That's an extra slow version of the GeForce 256 SDR, since it has a 64-bit memory bus instead of 128-bit. Ok that's why i didn't even remember there was such version but I remembered the original SDR to be a bit better. Is it possible they were trying some cheaper solution MX like, when in fact …

Re: Are GeForce 256 DDR cards that rare?

Maybe I have wrong memory of those times but the original Geforce 256 SDR sure was much slower than the DDR version but I wasn't remembering that much compared to those TNT2. Is that possible that with a time correct mobo/cpu/chipset the card would results better?
