    LG OLED Freesync Mod (tested on 55" B9 Series)

    To make this brief: LG's famous line of OLED displays are "Gsync compatible" over hdmi, meaning they are really just freesync displays in disguise. Despite this, they do not work on AMD graphics cards out of the box, because LG has blatantly neglected to add the EDID information Freesync...

    A smallish Kerbal Space Program mod I made: Turns the Kerbal system into a red dwarf system!

    Not sure anyone here will care, but I made a mod! Posted this at KSP too, but meh, want to share. Humor me. Turns out Kerbol System as represented in the game doesn't make any sense as a yellow star system, and this has always bugged me. It actually is about a 10th scale of our solar system...

    [FS][US] RTB's weird and wacky partout (LGA1366 stuff, GTX10603GB, mechanical keyboard, a PSU, and more!)

    This one starts with a story. If you don't care about the history of these parts, skip to the price/photos for all you need to know sale wise. The story is many years ago, I did dual LGA1366 systems for my brother and I... systems that would last me about 4 years, and him apparently, until...

    A tool to kill Unity telemetry: UnityAnalyticsKiller

    I discovered via my latest game, Kerbal Space Program, that Unity now includes a set of dlls that perform telemetry functions (Refered to as "Unity Analytics"). Further research showed me not only is this support not completely removable (and "opting out" only tags the data for deletion server...

    An attempt to decipher MDSTool

    If you, like me, found MDSTool hopelessly complex to read, this is an attempt to dicipher it from somebody who knows a thing or two (not everything mind, feel free to correct me). This is an infographic (...in MSPaint) I made from a 9900k perspective fully mitigated and on 1903. Enjoy.

    [FS][US] SOLD

    Yep, you read the title right. It's priced cheap and has an active warranty, so you may be able to get a fully functional board out of it too, but no promises there. I just don't have time to deal with this with a potential job offering coming up. Either way, it works 100% other than fan...

    An interesting article on bitcoin from a former naysayer:

    It was an interesting read for me. I've often refered to bitcoin as a "dying implementation" of currency, and honestly as a currency it is, but as a security like gold or silver it could have prospects. Fun fact: It was actually designed to emulate a precious metals rarity from day 1. Have a...
