    I completely understand. OK, I'll call this good enough. I just need work to confirm permanent WFH now. LOL Thank you for the update and info.

    BTW: I use Starlink for my internet

    I'm resurrecting this thread hoping for an update. @Aranarth : You were hoping for perfect by the end of summer. We are now in full fall, have you noticed any improvements? I'm still not full work from home but it's looking more likely every month. The end of this month will be a full year...

    Ducky X SOU・SOU Collaboration—Limited Edition "Number Element" Keyboards!

    AMD BC-160 Cryptocurrency Mining Card Surfaces with 72 MH/s in ETH

    This about sums it up, but I'm pretty sure it's going to happen in 2022, just not sure when. For those of you that believe mining only contributes to the landfill, what is your take on mining with older used gaming cards that will end in a landfill regardless?

    AMD BC-160 Cryptocurrency Mining Card Surfaces with 72 MH/s in ETH

    This has always been the case. Any belief otherwise is just folly.

    Team Group and TechPowerUp Present Online Expo Giveaway

    Plus, if I win, it will be buried under a motherboard heatsink/armor. I'm just glad GPUs aren't the ugly RGB (Red, Green, or Blue) PCBs anymore. I agree with Oly: black goes with everything.
