Worked over a decade as a software product designer/program manager (not coincidentally, on CAD and civil engineering software), now back in to managing the design of heavy construction projects and teaching CAD. We use the very software I worked on. IT runs...

    I'm borrowing* power from work, so I don't have much choice, only one CAT connection in my office. *They've asked about the random computers in my office, and I gave them an honest answer. No mining, no torrenting (edit: no porn lol), no complaints :)

    Need help buying W10 online

    A number of places, including enterprise or MSDN keys too. The enterprise ones are more common and that is outright theft. From my understanding, a lot of the keys are from Win7 upgrades. IE - they sell you an old Win7 key and it works to install Win10. I could be wrong.

    Haha. Unbuntu was randomly kicking me off of WiFi and I'd have to restart weekly. I guess one of the updates may have fixed that :toast:

    Need help buying W10 online

    I've asked the same question and gotten the same response, there are a ton of sites out there that sell them for cheap and they work. Ironically, I bought Win10 for my laptop 2nd harddrive, then found out I don't need a key as it's burned into the laptop. Don't engage with the conscience...

    Need help flashing bios

    It's hard to mix up an 8 pin SPI chip. Even on a motherboard loaded with IC's, you couldn't miss it. Edit, I take that back:

    Need help flashing bios

    I had the same problem flashing a motherboard. It would work one time, then 5 or 10 other times it simply wouldn't. Flakey as hell.

    [WTB] Found! WTB: intenal WD Red or external drive 4TB or larger

    I read they work fine for basically any SATA drive. I haven't tried the WD blacks in them yet tho.

    Need help flashing bios

    I rescued a motherboard with a flashcat SPI, but it would only work when the board was powered on. Something to do with resistive losses, and it was support at Flashcat that recommenced that me. Ergo, why I suggested it... putting the flasher on the card and power up the card in a PC before...

    I've got two of those myself, and two 2TB WD Blacks to go in them. GL finding what you seek.

    Need help flashing bios

    Thanks, I don't see dual BIOS. I'm wondering about flashing it while the card is in the slot and the PC is on, using IGPU.

    What is the card make/model? Does it have dual bios?

    Gifting Steam Games?

    I think you can still buy a Valve gift card without having to have a recipient... no?

    Gifting Steam Games?

    Sounds like they're trying to prevent people from re-selling. Meh!

    Gifting Steam Games?

    I'm guessing it was within the past year. No clue why, maybe they thought they we losing sales on unused games being given away? In any case, it sucks!

    Gifting Steam Games?

    That's the way I did it before also and I came to the same conclusion after poking around. They lost a few sales, I was planning a giveaway around the holidays but I guess not.

    Gifting Steam Games?

    Steam has some good deals right now, so I snatched a game last night. At checkout it gave the option to buy it for myself or gift it... to a list of people that I've already send games to. Question... if I haven't activated the game for myself, does Steam still allow gifting it? It used to. I...

    Win 10 ...Purchase on FleaBay?

    Isn't that the same link as in @Hugis post above? It's showing me $15.61, not $12. I'm not fretting about $3.61 if it's legit, rather than gambling on an eBay sale.

    Win 10 ...Purchase on FleaBay?

    I only put a like on your post because it was the answer I wanted to hear lol. For $10, it's low risk anyways.

    Win 10 ...Purchase on FleaBay?

    Search "Win 10 Pro" on FleaBay, and there are a TON of results for keys under $10. Legit or not? I got a key for Office Pro Plus for a proverbial dime about 2 months ago. It worked great with download directly from MS. Before I spend $7 ...what should I be careful of? Or what should I ask a...
