In 20 years of building my own PCs. All of it with this style of CPU (Intel used to use it as well). This has never once happened to me. Or anyone I’ve met in real life. Cause if you calm your shit and don’t force things, it won’t happen.

An important detail is that that “lock” is not a lock. It’s a “tensioner” or Read more

If you have any online account that involves money, turn on TFA.  At the bare minimum, getting a text and entering the number isn’t that bad.

In this day and age, 2FA should be a norm by now. It should be mandatory for all things deal with money and sensitive information. These people are holding a big free money sign in RH.

I’m imagine the article’s talking about the same kind of spectator mode that’s in Hearthstone. That game lets you have spectators by invitation only (so you can invite only the commentators and not leave it open to everyone else), and any stream delay can be done on the commentating side, not via the client.

Wizards of the Coast have NEVER been good at technology. Ever. See the long stupid, sordid history of MTG Online and it’s long weird stupid litany of dreadful bizarre problems and many still bugged and unworking cards.

A spectator mode would be a good thing but I would think if you are in a game tournament with your screen being filmed you would smartly turn off all notifications so something like this would not happen

Similar thing happened to my brother. Spare tire came off a semi and pancaked the door of his car, a Subaru Justy, remember those?

If a million companies weren’t staring at each other’s cat’s buttholes on Zoom in order to find new and creative ways to waste time in meetings, the internet and service wouldn’t be so swamped that those with actual need of video were stuck without service.

This is so spot on and I have seen it at dozens of my customers.  I work in infrastructure automation and security.

My theory after a few decades of corporate IT — the bean counters know the infrastructure folks will describe worst/best case scenarios (if we get maximum signups, and loose half the redundancies on launch day ... ) so they’re used to shaving say 10-20% off the top and insisting on it being done cheaper.

What’s with the obsession with video? I’ve been remote for years. My company’s marched through a variety of messaging platforms, most recently Skype and then Teams. We’ve had video capabilities for years, but seldom used it. The C-Suite folks like to make us stare at their sculpted grins during town halls, but all of Read more

I’m sure the numbers seen in March and April don’t match the numbers seen today, with months of preparation. Many school systems did not jump immediately to video schooling - that took weeks and months to phase in, and some early adopters were abandoning it as new districts came online. Read more

Not what I expected at all. That driver was both lucky and, from what I can read of the telemetry, cool as a cucumber. Looks like: hard on the brakes, then off everytime the spin was complete and then back on to the brakes moderately in an effort to stop the spin. Read more

If you buy a thing that relies on cloud services to function...

Don’t be surprised when those cloud services either start charging you money or disappear.
