  • That feeling when you cant find something so non-mission critical but the fact that its missing bugs you the most... In this case its a keyboard key puller. Ive been looking at it for 3hrs.

    I probably have 5 or 6 of those in this room right now. Pretty sure I know where one of them is.... I made it part of a little kit I keep near my PC area. Doesn't mean it stays there though :rolleyes:

    That's a general problem I have, though. My tools are never where I put them.

    I keep my key puller in a desk drawer along with thermal pastes, hardware manuals/documentation, and flash drives. I always put my tools in the same place everytime there used. Cuts down on trying to remember where they went.
    Been toying around with the idea of replacing the central fan of my dark rock Pro for something else that i have. Just for fun.

    well that turned out to be a complete waste of time. 140mm redux fan and Corsair ML120 wouldnt fit the center position but an Akasa Apache, Fractal Venturi HP-12 did fit and i was able to slide it in but i couldnt get the fans clipped on properly. Put the old Silent WIngs fans back on.
    So i went back to play BF1 again. only 3 active servers come up on browser for HQ conquest. played 5mins of a losing round then quit and uninstalled the game....
    Solved a weird problem on my laptop that had me scratching my head for weeks. kept flipping airplane mode on and off every second....

    I disabled 'hid-compliant wireless radio controls' Problem gone.
    Um, that avatar... needs improvement. As in complete replacement. It's just messed up and likely violates forum rules. EDIT; No offense intended of course.

    It's an old meme that started with something as disturbing as an ewok with a agressive face, hardly rulebreaking IMHO. But I guess if you want to be strict it could be.
    Your new avatar. That burger looks like a disturbingly juicy mess of tastiness. Feeling the love for some CarlsJr right at the moment..

    not near enough bacon on it to be considered heart attack on a bun. maybe an aneurysm but not heart attack. aneurysm is what you get when you cant take one more bite and have to leave it behind.

    When i first saw it i thought the two pickles on the right side were eyes and the rest of the face was a bad shroom trip. I was completely sober too...maybe that was the problem. :)

    So all the execs at EA have forfeited their bonus and asked for it to be paid to the devs.

    Damage control in other words BF5 performing badly didn't stop soderlund picking up $20mil bonus though part of that was to stop him leaving EA

    I honestly thought that was bull****... After verifying it, just in case I checked the window to see if the world was ending or if it was raining fireballs...

    Hopefully this won't be the last time that EA surprises us with some non-bad news..

    Got a crazy itch to dismantle my TS-251+ and repaste the CPU...

    I was thinking of repasting my Ryzen 2600X recently. I ran out compound during a heatsink swap and used a less heat conductive brand at the time. Was thinking of ordering Arctic Coolng MX-4 or cheating and grabbing Arctic Silver 5 locally even though they charge $20 or more dollars for the small tube.

    Still got warranty left on my NAS so i guess i got to hang on :(
    Just had a really weird issue with my Windows 10. Event logs tell me that Kaspersky updated itself but that made my OS almost completely unresponsive. Hitting windows key would bring up the menu but nothing i clicked on would run and i couldnt restart or shutdown. I had to force shutdown by holding the power button.

    Fun stuff, W10! I just finished my 1803 upgrade after 2 weeks of freezing within 5 min. I did a reset, which was like a partial fresh install. All is good after a day now of reinstalling programs. Sounds like a crappy install or download on your Kaspersky.

    updating via Windows Update will make it go bonkers. Installing it manually from ISO image usually gets rid of problems, in my experience. Running on 1809 without issues.

    It was done a while ago. the rest is just reinstalling apps and making sure all the previous shortcuts work to save myself time reinstalling everything.

    I am now! though in my case it was a lot of copy and pasting of files back and forth from my backups then fault checking for broken links and all that. I dont actually need to install a whole lot of stuff.
