Re: World War Z in April for PC/XBox-One/PS4

Isn't this game the same as Left for Dead?

Re: DELL E6540 temperature shutdown

Thanks. It now runs at 65°C instead of 80°C playing Half Life 2. I also ordered a backup heat pipe assembly that FP posted in a previous thread. It came with no thermal pad.

Re: Former Mozilla exec: Google has sabotaged Firefox for years

Now with MS going with Chromium browser for Edge, I'm curious to see what happens with FF. Will it die? I prefer using FF as I don't use Chrome that much.

Re: DELL E6540 temperature shutdown

UPDATE: I ordered some copper shims from Amazon. 20 of them for less than $5. They were pretty cheap, and took about 6 weeks for delivery, because they were coming from China. I had to use a very hard ceramic stone to remove any burrs etc. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01EYD7D2G/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b...

Re: Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

The rise of Skywalker? So they are bringing him back?

The only SW flick I did not like was the one with JarJar. As for the latest by Disney, Rogue Squadron was very good.

Microsoft Windows and Office ISO Download Tool 8.10

I found this from another web site. It's coming from Major Geeks, so it's safe. Nice simple tool that allows you to select versions of windows and office, giving you a direct link to download it, or you can copy the link from Microsoft. The video below is an older version, but the idea is the same. ...

A tough cowboy approaches the pearly gates...

"Have you ever done anything of particular merit?" St. Peter asked. “Well, I can think of one thing," the cowboy offered. "On a trip to the Black Hills out in South Dakota, I came upon a gang of bikers who were threatening a young woman. I directed them to leave her alone, but th...

Re: Windows 10 October 2018 Update (1809) is now (finally) rolling out

The laptop that I bought used was installed with a fresh copy of 1809. I've had no issues with it yet (knock on wood). It was the one I was discussing in the overheating issue with the laptop.

Where can you get 1803? Maybe you can put a copy in your shares?

Wolfenstein: Youngblood Trailer

After watching this, I'm not interested in this version of the game. A co-op shooter with 2 females with cussing and swearing. Not what I would expect for the next game.

Re: If you use WinRAR, you need to update RIGHT NOW!

No. Steve Gibson explained it in detail last week. It IS related to the ACE decrypter. However, WinRAR has the ability to know how to open an archive by ignoring the extension. It reads the metadata to figure out what the archive actually is. That means (and this is what they're doing in the wild) ...
