Re: Mobile banking

Look for the bank's app in the Play Store if using Android. I'm sure Apple has something similar. You don't need Chrome.

Re: Mobile banking

I've been using mobile banking on my phone also for years. I trust that most banks have very tight security. I also never save CC info on other sites as I don't trust them as I do with a known bank. I also don't surf very much on my phone. I guess I'm old can find it hard to move around web sites an...

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

The download did not take long, but the update did. Must have taken 30-45 minutes to install. It starts to run slower when it gets to 90%.

Thanks for that - never seen that before. I could not find the last one: Check that Windows Updates restrictions stuck via Updates > Adv Options.

I'm on 1909 on my desktop. All I see is "Your device is missing important security and quality fixes".
I have feature updates at 365 days and quality updates at 30 days. I'm sure the newer versions took these options away.

Re: anyone been having a problem getting gas ?

Same with what happened with toilet paper. This reminds me of the gas lines from the early 70's. In the end, they had to ration gas based on your license place on the car - even and odd numbers here in CA. I saw a pic of a guy filling up not only his car, but several 5 gal containers - fucking hoard...

Re: SSDs More Reliable than HDDs: Backblaze Study

I read yesterday that a new bitcoin will be using HD's instead of video cards, which means there will be a demand for HD's.

Re: Far Cry (first game) 2004

I went ahead and installed the x64 version patch along with t he enhanced content patch. Works great as the visuals are so much vibrant. The resolution I'm running is 1920x1080x32 on my NVIDIA Geforce GTX1660 TI. I have an older monitor Samsung that I bought about 8-10 years ago and I haven't upgrad...

Re: Far Cry (first game) 2004

Once I finish what I'm currently playing, I'm going to try these patches for the x64 bit version of the game.
