Re: What game are you playing now?

Still on KCD and still loving it. I haven't had much time to play (maybe 5 hrs a week) so my progress is slow. One thing I've come to love about this game is the archery mechanics. Very difficult, no aiming reticle, you kind of have to get good at going by feel. I had one standout point recently …

Re: 8k

No, and I don't see myself getting one. I have a 40" monitor and 4K is perfect for this screen size. Below 32" I wouldn't even consider 4K over 1440p and for 24" or smaller 1080p is enough. With resolutions too high you are just wasting GPU power at a time when GPU power is expensive without much …

Re: What is your Favorite CPU and Why ?

The Tualatin-S and close second is the 486DX4. Both are very powerful CPUs that can cover most of the 90s on their own and their compute power overlaps at just the right place so used in combination they can cover even the speed sensitive stuff from the mid 80s up to the resource intensive stuff in …

Re: Leak of Windows 11

At best I'm curious how it will be. Windows 10 made me completely leave Windows except form retro machines and I'm not missing it. Currently I don't have anything with more recent Windows than Vista and I don't expect this to change. MS should do a complete 180 on their business model for that and …

Re: Worst tips from tech support

statistics seem to be number 1 priority now , how many tickets were created/closed, milestones met on a project or units sold as that's what Management looks at. The quality of the work seems to be second. Very much this. I work with a guy who was a technician at an ISP and that's all what the …

Re: Windows 7 Retro?

I would consider W7 retro-ish. It has no direct support, and while it's still alright for daily tasks I don't think it's taken into consideration for new software releases. If it runs, it runs, if not, it isn't officially supported anyway. I wouldn't argue vehemently if someone calls it retro. Also …

Re: The stupidest limitation on CPU-world.com

I don't think tor or VPN services work with bans because those services are the first that get banned so it wouldn't work anyway. Doesn't matter now. Free VPNs maybe. Like for example the built-in Opera VPN (if it still exist) had this problem. Decent paid VPNs and Tor in my experience not …

Re: The stupidest limitation on CPU-world.com

A lot of sites have that kind of limitations. Though generally more active sites, like reverse image search and file manipulator sites. Just try using Tor. After a couple of tries at worst you should be able to find a rout with an exit node where you can do another 50 page loads.

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

Since I've moved away from Synology (Xpenology) and went for OMV I didn't bother setting up a Video Station-like media server. This weekend I took my time and set up Jellyfin . I thought about Plex, but I have a strong preference for FOSS. So far I'm very pleased Video Station on the same hardware …
