Re: Babylon 5 remake?

in Milliways
I liked Babylon 5 a lot, and would not mind a remake, unfortunately given the "Netflix" type approach it will likely be given, I suspect it will only be at most two seasons, and that likely means it will not get finished, or it will be very compressed with a lot of stuff left out from the original …

Re: What's the dumbest retro mistake you've made?

in Milliways
I just remembered two, I once "gleeked" on a mainboard and short-circuited it. I gleek randomly all the time and it happened when I was testing my Soyo slot1 system. There wasn't any permanent damage but I learned to keep my mouth shut when I'm working with electronics. I used to store my spare …

Re: What's the dumbest retro mistake you've made?

in Milliways
I am not sure if this would count has retro, but it was an old hard drive in one of my older computers, back in the late 1990s around 1998, I had a 4GB hard drive I used for backup, unfortunately the power connector plastic was broken on this hard drive and you could, if not paying attention, plug …

Re: Using JB Weld as thermal epoxy?

JB weld is metal filled. Seems like it would conduct heat reasonably well. Anyone tried it? I have used JB Weld a lot, and JB Weld has failed a lot on me, even though I always go the extra mile and rough up the surface and clean with rubbing alcohol to remove any oil and dust/dirt, but when it …

Re: Need help with chinese IP camera security

Re: Is there any reason to keep a Win9X machine around for gaming except for fun or nostalgia?

I tend to have Win98 installed on many of my DOS computers just so I can use a thumb drives and some of the better and easier to use system utilities and file managers, but if Win98 works well enough on that machine I will install Win9X games on it, I also like to have Win3.1 installed on them has …

Re: Collecting rants

One thing that annoys me is when people post eBay listings of rare items that sold within hours or even minutes of the end of the auction/sale. This even happens on Vogons despite its policy on eBay listings. Unless I misunderstand: Technically I cannot do that with my Ebay account, once a bid is …

Re: Collecting rants

I just got a full tower Dell GX260 in today, they put this large computer into the smallest box it would fit into, with a very small amount of padding at the top and bottom of the box, the padding was made up of a few pieces of waded up paper, the side of the case was broken off during shipping and …
