    Mozilla Announces Firefox Quantum Web-browser

    W1z... Tap on the <Alt> key to bring up the menu bar...click on Tools, Add-ons...then go to Themes and switch to the 'Light' theme. Might be subjective...but to me, it seems to be running even a little better with the light theme. Currently running Firefox 57 with Ublock Origin, Privacy...

    Quick question about internet speed vs wifi speed.

    I'm no expert when it comes to networking, but I do get by...:). I'd like to add a +1 to Bumblebee's post....I've been using wireless on my main devices for about a decade(since I set up my Ooma). I've had much better stability(and strength of signal) using pci-e adapters vs. dongles. If...

    What the hell am i ?

    I didn't think it would literally take a genius....:). That is precisely why I obscured the first photo as best as possible. Afterall, I'm on a website with avid overclockers and tinkerers...I thought this one might not last five minutes. My Regards, Liquid Cool

    What the hell am i ?

    Jboyd... Although, it's usually more experienced users that would probably have one of these sitting around...I had to use it more often than most because I made a lot of mistakes. So...we'll just say you're more than half correct...;). I was a little tricky with the first photo...does this...

    Computer Related: Back in the LGA 775 skt days...I used one of these more often than I care to admit....;). Good Luck....:), Liquid Cool

    [US] Scythe MUGEN Max $37

    I've never used one of these current MAX versions of this cooler...but the older Scythe Mugen 2, Rev. B is my all-time favorite air cooler. If they've kept the quality up....this seems like a decent buy. I can remember paying over $50 for mine...and that was 10 years ago. Best, Liquid Cool

    Some new mice from Microsoft, and they look great

    I'm with Bill....it didn't take all that long for me to switch to using the mouse right handed when I started having wrist problems. I now switch to my right hand whenever I start to feel the least bit of a "twinge" at the back of my left hand or wrist. It didn't take long to notice....this...

    Some new mice from Microsoft, and they look great

    Being a lefty, back in the early 2000's there weren't many choices for a good mouse. The black/silver intellimouse I used until I wore it out....not a bad mouse when you don't have many choices. I'll be watching this one closely, I need a mouse rather desperately...nothing worse than one foot...

    Streacom Announces the BC1 Mini Chassis

    Uhh...now this little thing is quite nifty! I like it! I'm also liking the 'idea' of the Open BenchTable Project. I've owned Streacom cases in the past, always very good quality...and not over-the-top pricing. I'm going to watch these closely. :), Liquid Cool P.S. Had no problem...

    Old HP Notebook Upgrade

    I'd go for adding a 2GB stick, so it's running 4GB in dual channel mode. It would be cheaper if you're really cash strapped. Although, it would probably be best to save your money for a new(or newer) unit....I like old computers and laptops....but this one is really long in the tooth. If your...

    What are you playing?

    I'm back again...:). I realize my opinions of Fallout 4 may be viewed as....well....:kookoo:, but I'm tossing Fallout 4 in to the casual game play heap - yet again. I can't quite put my finger on it...but it's just not 'gritty' enough. Feels too sanitized and entirely too cartoonish, kind of...

    Dual channel with 1x2GB + 1x4GB sticks?

    Unfortunately...I started with this in the 80's. Although....I only remembered dual channel being used back to LGA 775. I owned many AMD computers before that during the early 2000's period(member of AMDMB), with the Nforce2 chipset being my favorite....I was also a big fan of A-Bit. I...

    Dual channel with 1x2GB + 1x4GB sticks?

    Perhaps my thinking is stuck in the days of the LGA 775 socket? :), Liquid Cool

    Dual channel with 1x2GB + 1x4GB sticks?

    I've never given a lot of thought to how I run my memory in dual channel. I guess my own assumption is/was that you add two memory sticks of the same size/speed in the proper slots depending on the motherboard...and you enable dual channel mode. If one of the sticks is of a slower speed, it...

    Which OS you prefer

    My own opinion from my experience of hopping through many distros is just about the same as yours. At the end of the day, I'm no power user and like StrayKAT pointed out...I just like my OS to work. That doesn't mean I don't mind solving a problem here and there, but at the end of the...

    Digital River: "Games as a Service, Microtransactions, Tripled Industry's Value"

    FreedomEclipse... I think you could stretch those "Golden Years" of gaming out to 2005 and still be accurate in your assumptions. I've been pc gaming since 1988 or so...and for me...the golden years were 2000-2005, perhaps even 2006-7.(ALL hail the King! NForce2!....then Conroe upsets apple...

    Antec Announces the P110 Luce Chassis

    Every new picture of this Antec case that I viewed....reminded me and more of this: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811352070 Although, as correctly pointed out by the OP....air flow from the front venting area appears to be quite a bit more restricted on the Antec...

    How often should we upgrade

    I remember reading one of the moderators comments in regards to when a person should upgrade, I can't remember which mod it was, but I thought to myself. Dead on. Period. End of story. Nothing else needs to be said. That comment was essentially along the lines of what Bill said...

    What are you playing?

    After over 200 hours in 2 months...I'm going to let Skyrim rest for awhile. I have too many games waiting in the wings. Next up...and already loaded and set up....Fallout 4. I initially booed this title when it first came out because I've never been a fan of 3rd person and I didn't like the...
