    GoodOffer24 Your Back-to-School Software Buddy: Deep Discounts on Windows 10 and Office

    "Should" be corporate sales for legal reasons. It's not really supposed to be sold to normal users. In order for a normal user to get LTSC, you'd have to circumvent the system that's in place which normally prevents you from getting LTSC... like buying a key from a less than immaculate vendor...

    Nexus 6 weirdness

    You can likely replace the battery anyway... if you brave the scores of torx screws and tiny ribbon cables. I'm sure there's a how-to/teardown somewhere for it.

    MSI MAX AM4 Boards Real: 32MB BIOS ROMs and Ryzen 3000 Out-of-the-Box Support

    If I'm not mistaken, the issue was that, in the face of AMD saying Socket AM4 would be supported through 2020, some board manufacturers used smaller ROM chips than they should have, which created problems with Ryzen 3xxx compatibility. Thank God these board manufacturers have stepped up to solve...

    Is there... a touch emulator app?

    It's either this box or the laptop... but she wanted to use an android box with the TV for this, and other things. So if there's no way to make the android box work, it's a wash.

    Is there... a touch emulator app?

    So, my fiancee got an Android TV box, and she wants to use it to play Avakin Life. The game loads up fine... but it doesn't really accept mouse inputs. You're supposed to click around in the game to move your character but the game just isn't accepting inputs from the mouse there (even though I...

    Intel 9900k.. my findings.. Heat..

    That's a messy subject, isn't it? Some might say true stock would be considered 3.6GHz, the CPU's base clock. Anything beyond that, that is, Turbo mode, is not guaranteed. That's also how they get away with calling it a 95w chip, when it most certainly is not when Turbo is active. You're not...

    I have a whole rack of servers but zero idea what the hell to do with them.

    Yeah, as others have mentioned, the easiest way to put it to good use would be to load up WCG on all of them... but running all that hardware is going to take a lot of power. Of course, it's also gonna generate a lot of heat and be noisy.

    Soldier of Fortune II: Double Helix Low Gamma at Start

    is there a gamma command you could put in console? If so, try adding, for example, +gamma .5 or whatever in the Target box in the shortcut properties (after the quotation marks with the path to the game .exe in them).

    Have you got pie today?

    I knocked 400MHz off my 2600k so I could run it with an undervolt again. Summer is here in full force.
