Experimental nightside lights:
To quote an old sci-fi series – down and safe!
The estimated window of re-entry for the defunct Chinese space lab Tiangong-1 has narrowed sharply. The timeframe for the fall to Earth is centred on 01:07 Monday GMT, plus or minus two hours.
Hey, Nevil – good to see you’re still about.
Hey, old-timer – get off my lawn!
Question for you, D1: that EVGA PSU – fully modular, yes? Any problems with cables being a tad short? It’s on my short list, you see, and I’ve heard a few gripes about short cables. Mine will have to stretch around the back of the mobo too.
Just when you thought AMD was secure, Spectre raises its ugly head.
Looks like your love of AMD will stand you in good stead:
Design flaw in intel processors… and the upcoming OS fixes may slow your machine down. Article (at El Reg) here.
Naughty intel… very naughty!
It took me over a year to gather the components for the machine I’m running now. The new build should take less time: the CPU is awaiting dispatch, as is the case, I’ve already got the mobo and soundcard, and I’ve got a new monitor too. Still to buy: PSU, RAM, SSD, GFX card and keyboard.
It must be Christmas or something! Just saw my favourite case on special offer at £59.99 – so I grabbed it.
It’s always been that way, D1 – what costs a dollar in the States costs a pound in the UK, pretty much.
As for ordering components from the US, different taxes/duties apply so there’s little or no saving.
I’ve started slowly collecting components for a new build, but it’ll be partially old spec.
My guess is it’s quite deliberate – possibly to piss Iran (and others) off.
I won’t get into the POTUS – but you’ve got a problem over there, D1.
Cool – we have an avatar!
Oh yeah, Oolite now supports 8K UHD – if anyone has the kit, that is!
Not that I’m aware of, D1. There have been no adverse reports, and I know some players have serious kit (and WX).
Take your time, D1, and get it how you want it – the long, dark, winter is upon us.
Ditto! It’s the bane of the Oolite forum – too much whiteness
The LT colour scheme is pretty good, as was the old SSC.
The Memory of Whiteness – there’s a good novel.
The ubiquitous FD orange? We hates it!
