Car Design Trends That Need to Stop

The giant key fobs... Sigh. My wife's 2018 Navigator has a key fob the size of a hockey puck, and weighs as much or more. I hate having that thing in my pocket.

Win10 auto creates a bitlocker partition on new and factory installs

Looks like something they added after 1809. I just bought a NUC with factory 1903 installed, and when I tried to make an Acronis image, I found that the boot partition was a Bitlocker partition and Acronis wouldn't touch it without a password. This threw me off since I didn't have a password. I had ...

Re: thinking about phone carriers and making a change again .

Aren't you both on one account with the same carrier? You'd save money. Been happy with Verizon. They probably have the best coverage in Florida. For two phones sharing one 5GB data plan, you're talking around $100 after taxes I think. Verizon let's you also roll over data from the previous month.

Re: Disney Resetting Star Wars; Erasing Last Jedi?

This girl does an hour long rant about every single flaw with Rise of Skywalker. She's dead on, and pretty funny too. I ripped it and just watched it one night on my media center. The girl really nails it.

Disney Resetting Star Wars; Erasing Last Jedi?

I dunno if I believe any of this, but I'd LIKE TO. I was really disappointed with Rise of the Skywalker.

Re: Windows 10 printing breaks due to Microsoft June 2020 updates

You can disable both spectre and meltdown mitigation. That won't hurt stability. One of the reasons I avoid 'performance' RAM like Gskill is because it generally requires you to override the default timing profile to make it run stable. I bought some GSkill several years ago because it was on the ma...

Re: Windows 10 printing breaks due to Microsoft June 2020 updates

Just a thought, but check RAM timing in Bios and make sure it's not overclocked. My main rig was BSODing for a few months, but only when under heavy CPU load like transcoding videos. Just on a whim I went into bios to check for anything amiss and noticed my RAM was overclocked, and I'm certain I nev...

Re: GAMING ON THE smallest 4K MINI PC

I stubbornly hang on to individual HTPCs. Heck, all four of the ones I'm running at home are running Win7 Windows Media Center. All 7+ year old small form factor Dells running Core i5s. It still works (now that I've hacked them to use a 3rd party channel guide). We're used to them and they're reliab...
