Re: anyone been having a problem getting gas ?

Heh, looks like the hackers got hacked, or more likely, made up a story they were hacked and went underground. Or Russian gov reined in their leashes. I guess they pushed their luck too far by hitting the pipeline. DarkSide Ransomware Gang Quits After Servers, Bitcoin Stash Seized https://krebsonsec...

IGN: 15 Minutes of Days Gone PC Gameplay - 1440p 60fps

Looks interesting. Open world GTA/Red Dead type game, but with ZOMBIES.

Re: A Year of Poor Planning Led to Carmakers’ Massive Chip Shortage

While it's good we're building some new semiconductor fabs here, it takes years. These things are more complex than oil refineries. Also, below a certain die size, semiconductor manufacturing is a black art. TSMC (fabs here and Taiwan) is the works largest at small scale dies like our PC CPUs and GP...

Re: Microsoft: Windows 10 1809 and 1909 have reached end of service

I could not find the last one: Check that Windows Updates restrictions stuck via Updates > Adv Options. It's not obvious that it's a clickable button, and I don't think it even appears unless you've setup Group Policy settings. http://www.soldcentralfl.com/bob/update103.jpg Then the next window lis...

Ah. Ok. I was wondering how the cooling worked in something spinning that fast. Makes sense.

Re: Valheim mini-review

Some more videos. I just posted these so the HD version may not be up yet:

This is the part of the game that feels like a Roguelike. I'm raiding a dungeon full of skeletons:

Re: Microsoft: Windows 10 1809 and 1909 have reached end of service

Those options are still available in the newer version. Sometimes they're hidden - in my case because I'm a limited user - but you can still adjust them via Group Policy, which is even more flexible (like specifically blocking auto driver updates, or forcing all updates to manual). Dunno if I've pos...

Re: anyone been having a problem getting gas ?

Aaaand Darwin is in full force in Florida. The story doesn't say so, but I'll bet the idiot was smoking. I have to transport several 5 gallon gas cans in the back of my Yukon all the time for my hungry zero turn mowers. Granted, I switched to industrial safety metal cans and got away from plastic ye...

FPV (First Person View) Mini Drones

Okay, I am seriously thinking of buying one of these. Around $200 to get started, but like R/C planes you can easily pay a lot more for upgrades and accessories if you get really into it.

Re: anyone been having a problem getting gas ?

Reports today was that it was unpatched Exchange Servers. This should be a wakeup call for any company running infrastructure equipment.

Edit

Bloomberg says they paid the ransom, which is not a good thing in the long run. Hackers win again. :(

Microsoft: Windows 10 1809 and 1909 have reached end of service

If you've been blocking build updates, be aware security updates have ended for 1909 and all previous builds. If you decide to update your build, I would recommend going straight to 20H2 (Yeah, new build number system: H1 for first half, H2 for 2nd half of the year), which is the October 2020 build,...

Re: anyone been having a problem getting gas ?

People are being stupid. There's no shortage in Florida except the one created by people running out and hoarding gas. We don't get our gas from the pipeline. I haven't gone out for gas because I have 3/4 of tank and that will last me for a while, but a friend of mine said he had to hit 3 different ...
