Re: How to fix desktop

Easy fix. Unlock the task bar so it can be moved. Then click on a blank area on it and drag it to the bottom of the screen. Then lock the task bar so he can't accidentally move it again.

Re: My Pixel 2XL USB-C jack stopped working for audio and data transfer

Yeah, first thing I tried was contact cleaner, just in case. Really, it's no big deal, except the occasions when I drive the 2013 Yukon, which is my work truck for hauling crap to the dump, and working on the property. It has BT but it only supports the phone, not media, so I used to use a USB-C aud...

The game runs very well on modern hardware. Supported my 3440x1440 display with not problems.

Old skool fun.

Re: My Pixel 2XL USB-C jack stopped working for audio and data transfer

Hmmm. Wasn't aware the Pixel 5 was supposed to (at least before Covid) come out at the end of this year. If it's got a fingerprint reader, I'll probably wait for that.

I remember in the early days of DSL, clients having issues with something like a blender or microwave killing the Internet connection.

Re: My Pixel 2XL USB-C jack stopped working for audio and data transfer

Phone still works fine. Not sure it's worth spending the money. Might look into fixing it once I replace it, as it would still be a good backup phone.

My Pixel 2XL USB-C jack stopped working for audio and data transfer

According to some forums I Googled, this is a common problem and requires replacing the board. Only thing my USB-C port will do as of a week ago is charge the phone. Windows PCs will not recognize it as a USB device (so can't transfer files) and ear buds and audio jack adapter no longer work. Since ...

A bit more specifics on SLI support in GTX 30xx

Looks like SLI isn't really dead. Nvidia wants to replace the SLI bridge with PCIe 4.0 bus communication instead, but this requires building it into the game code directly. They're going to do this with a new API. So it just may depend on the game in the future. Details from 'Hardware Jesus': https:...

Re: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070, 3080 and 3090

EVGA says they are getting in a big supply of cards this week, so I would recommend going to their store and using the auto notify button if you're interested in a card.

I have auto notify set on their store and Newegg.

Weird issue with iron filter

I have an iron filter and a water softener in my new house (we have well water). Looks like the iron filter was never assembled properly. They damaged the PVC pipe inside the tank when they installed it, and it's apparently been dumping the media out the backwash drain ever since. Only noticed this ...
