You also only need to patch when something breaks, which isn't often. It's been a bit messy lately though as Google has been breaking…

Grab something like the artic liquid AIO, they are absolutely amazing, the company behind it is pretty good as well for warranty and other…

Xcom 2 is a game I've probably rage uninstalled at least 10 times in absolute rage. Great game too, highly recommended.

Bought my account in the extremely early days of beta (before MP), the fact they got away with this is stupid. ACCC hello?

Take the speeds with a massive grain of salt. But given the size (tiny) and the reported speeds, it looks good.

Xm3's were the best headphones you could get. Amazing. But they broke after moderate use, which is a pain. Xm4s have an issue where if you…

ARM is great , aka Apple Silicon. The MacBook airs are fantastic devices with the new chip. Shame apple is apple.

New one apparently coming early next year. So might be cheaper than if you can wait

Not sure if anyone cares, but if you use Linux, your system needs to be suspended then resumed for this to work (atleast as of 6.5.7,…

I got the RT-AX53U last year for $65 and it works great as a router with OpenWRT, using stock firmware it's so weirdly slow and laggy for…

IMHO, only reason they nerfed the RAM on that was so the 3090s would be decent for AI/ML tasks. Greed.

NVME can be similar priced, and faster. With a cheap USB enclosure, it's much much faster.

Warning: These seem to not be properly supported by Linux yet (atleast the 4tb version), as there needs to be a quirk figured out.…

Yeah. Especially given devices like orange pi5 etc are just so much better. So insanely overpriced.
06/08/2023 - 16:00
Cloud providers like vultr etc are usually cheaper than colo for hobby budget nowadays. :(

Try turning off 2.4, this drastically increased my speeds. I don't need 2.4 (old devices like printers or something do though)
03/08/2023 - 16:30
Few options: 1. Plug these devices into ethernet, downstairs/upstairs , your devices will roll across as they change signal. Most devices…

B550m with high core count CPUs (5950x, though that's just stupid, tbh) don't handle compiling workloads very well. Wasn't even…

Had a Metabox in 2016, and it was great but noisy AF. Feel like they don't really care about noise, as they consider them portable…

Yup, super keen for the 7950x3d, as it's great for analytical workloads, but the dramas to get everything to work stable is too much of a…

It's a known issue for keychron, hopefully their new ones fix it. Didn't want to deal with it, so grabbed the wired. Hopefully new model…

Funnily enough the 7950x3d is really good for analysis workloads. I hate things which are named after gaming, makes it a bit more suss for…

This is a great cooler range. Artic are a great company, they had a recent issue and sent out kits to everyone. Highly recommended.
22/06/2023 - 17:48
Yep, TP-Link ignore so many issues, such as these acting as DHCP servers in AP mode, causing issues when the main router reboots.
