    Re: Deadbolt Location

    I like that idea. But, I kind of doubt it will ever come. The lock in the wall would be strange for most people. Everyone is very used to having lock mechanisms in the door.

    I do not believe that...

    Re: How much PC is enough?

    My thread came back to life!



    Based on that "logical increments" site, my PC is in the Great range. The only real high performance stuff I have in it is the 32 GB RAM and the 512 GB SSD. The...

    Re: Future in Modding

    To be honest, I do not understand the desire to restore old things. I may be more into history now that I'm older, but I still have no desire to restore an old car to its original specs. I would...

    Re: Future in Modding

    I can easily afford one of the lower priced 3D printers. Although I think they are really cool, I have not purchased one. I could not think of enough stuff to make with one to justify ownership. I've...

    Re: Future in Modding

    That was a blast from the past. The people who responded to that 2005 post are all inactive.

    Modding has declined in the last ten years along with LAN parties. The rise of high speed internet hurt...
  6. Re: So who's still around from the old days (pre 2010) ?

    True, but the type C will also deliver 100 watts. I hope that this finally brings us a real docking port that does not require any more than a single cable. A USB 3.0 dock still requires the laptop...

    Re: How much PC is enough?

    You guys are right.

    I paid the money for the 32 GB because I wanted to fill up the motherboard to the maximum that it could hold. Last time I bought components, I decided to wait to fill up the...

    How much PC is enough?

    I recently purchased a new laptop for my wife and child to use. I got a Toshiba P55t-A5116. It set me back about $800 after taxes at Best Buy. Now I see a blue screen of death with 0xc0000185. A...

    I have to be honest. I lurk around here more than I post. Been on this forum since 2007. Completely enjoyed watching the work logs. The site is different than it used to be and fewer people are into...

    I bought the wife a new Toshiba P55 laptop. They promptly broke the power adapter connector within about a month.

    Fortunately the old power supply fits, but it is no longer tight. The way that...

    I used this site, 10fastfingers.com, to do a typing test. The best I could achieve with any accuracy was 54 wpm. If I try to get any faster, I make more mistakes. I probably actually type about 40...

    We suffered a near death experience a while back. I made a USB drive mod with some 550 cord and had to wait a while to post it. I'm glad this forum survived.
