    With the SSD's, I would opt for a RAID5 if supported by your controller. Yes, you would lose capacity but gain safety in return.

    TPU's Nostalgic Hardware Club

    Since my wife is watching some mind-busting bullshit on TV I decided to return to the cellar and play around with the rubbish from the "good old times" when times were hard. Here's my playing-around rig: Thanks to my old Windows NT4 CD I was able to re-partition the whopping big harddrive of...

    What phone you use as your daily driver? And, a discussion of them.

    Being an oldtimer i simply don't want to lose the physical buttons. You may call it a matter of age, but that's how it is.

    S7 active, ATT version unlocked for use with my national carrier. Replaced my S6 active which replaced my S5 active which replaced my S4 active. Some major signs of wear, but the S8 active is not an option as they are lacking the physical buttons.

    Windows 11 a Flop, Survey Claims Less Than 1% Upgraded, Microsoft Improves Start Menu

    With Windows 11 I use the same UI as I did with Windows 10: Classic Shell add-on as, in my personal opinion, both UI suck. But Windows 11 UI to me is an absolute no-go, no way I'm ever gonna use it!

    Windows 11 General Discussion

    In my personal opinion this is only to keep noobs out. "Professionals" would be able to unlock anyway. AFAIK in the US software companies are required to provide a "master key" to authorities. So data security is nothing but an illusion, especially when using cloud services. A backup is highly...

    How flash uefi supported bios on gtx 550 ti?

    In general there is no black magic involved as long as your actual BIOS size is 128MB. With anything smaller than this: forget it! Use GPU-Z to save a copy of your actual BIOS and check its size.

    The key depends in the type of build. Microsoft, OEM or Retail. A valid key works only with the correct type of build. If the pair doesn't match: no joy!
