Re: What retro hardware you killed today or in the past :(. Killing spree stories+serial killers are welcome.Rest in pie

A few months ago, I accidentally scraped around the CPU heatsink bracket on a Dell AM3 motherboard while trying to remove the bracket. Luckily I didn't scrape any of the traces, just the green silkscreen on the board, so it still works. I just placed hot glue over the areas that got scraped just to …

Re: What do you regret throwing out?

Well, now that old CRT TVs have become difficult to find in my area, I regret getting rid of my parents' old Sharp 25" CRT TV (manufactured on Dec. 1999). To be fair, both of its input jacks (rear RF coaxial and front Composite AV) broke, rendering the TV useless without any repairs, but now that my …

Re: Leak of Windows 11

I'm on Windows 10 Pro 20H2 now and since installing Windows (02/06/20) have never been asked to sign in to a Microsoft account and practically never been asked to switch browser. Only time was that one update to introduce the new Chrome Edge, but I think that particular one was backported to 7 / 8 …

Re: Leak of Windows 11

Re: Leak of Windows 11

Why are you still using Windows 8.1? 10 is way better. Because unlike Windows 10 (1909 onwards), it doesn't bombard me monthly with the annoying "Get Even More Out of Windows" OOBE screen when I'm not using a Micro$oft account, it doesn't beg me to use Edge whenever I use Firefox/Chrome, it's …

Re: Windows 7 Retro?

Windows 7 will become retro after 2023. That's when Microsoft will finally pull the lever for all NT 6.x family of OS. Software support will drop rapidly after that point and you won't be able to use Windows 7/8 as a daily driver. By that point, I'll be exclusively using Linux as a daily driver and …

Re: Windows 7 Retro?

You know, I find it funny how regressive modern technology has gotten compared to older, yet still perfectly usable tech. Recently, my 2019 iPad 6th gen has started struggling at loading my most-used websites left and right, regardless of the browser that I'm using (I've used Safari, Chrome, and …

Internet is slow on one computer yet fine on the other

Hello. I'm having a very annoying issue with one of my computers. Ever since I've moved to a new house, the internet is slow and unstable on one computer yet on another computer on the same network it's all perfectly fine. Both computers are plugged in directly to my Xfinity modem via Ethernet. This …
