Re: Microsoft Admits Updates Are Freezing Windows 10 Computers -- Again

This weekend I was contemplating installing the latest feature update but my brain kicked in with a firm "no." I'm still running 1803 with feature updates deferred for a year plus a delay on updates. Again, If anyone has Win 10 Home, you can upgrade to Pro with any valid Windows 7 or 8 pro...

Re: HP is making a dual-screen gaming laptop with liquid metal cooling

As long as they don't skimp on the storage and memory, $2K isn't terrible for this laptop. I'd only be willing to pay that if it has a 1 TB M.2 and at least 16 GB RAM. I'm assuming the second screen acts like a touchscreen. I wan't clear on that from the article.

Re: Cheap LED bulbs

A few years ago, my workplace went from fluorescent to LED's. It was literally night vs. day. The LED's they chose put off a nice hue that resembles actual daylight. The rest of the plant's high bay lights were switch from 240V Halogens to LED's too. They are much more efficient. I've only seen one ...

Star Citizen sells 'Concept Motorcycles' at $36 and $48

https://www.guru3d.com/news-story/star-citizen-sells-concept-motorcycles-at-36-and-48.html

Watching the development of this game is like a slow motion train wreck. They'll probably have to eventually sell the IP to cover all of the lawsuits.

Shrinking Moon May Be Generating Moonquakes

https://www.nasa.gov/press-release/goddard/2019/moonquakes The Moon is shrinking as its interior cools, getting more than about 150 feet (50 meters) skinnier over the last several hundred million years. Just as a grape wrinkles as it shrinks down to a raisin, the Moon gets wrinkles as it shrinks. U...

Firefox Nuked addons

My Ublock Origin was disabled by Firefox so I uninstalled it and tried reinstalling from the website. All I get is a failure to download error. I checked the subreddit and this seems to be across the board. For some reason, all addons suddenly became unverified. Good Job Mozilla.

Re: when did timex watch get so expensive

The cheapest decent looking watch is $50. I don't remember ever seeing a Timex as expensive as the one you linked. They used to make a good self winding watch years ago.

Re: The Saga Of 'Star Citizen,' A Video Game That Raised $300 Million—But May Never Be Ready To Play

The amount of money some have spent buying ships is staggering. If gaming ever gets to the point where I have to spend $3K on a virtual item just to play, I'm done. I look for Star Citizen to eventually be bought. I wouldn't be surprised if Epic or Blizzard bought the IP. Both companies have more mo...
