    Do Lan Parties happen any more?

    I threw one in 2019 for my birthday. We skipped 2020 because, well obviously. Modern systems, all mine (generally servers/etc that I can dual boot or drop a quick windows SSD into for gaming). Works amazingly well actually. We did old schoiol.

    PCIE Bifurcation related, a niche technical question.

    This sounds like what Liqid was designed to do - and they have storage shelves to tie in to a set of PCIE HBAs. And that just takes software support then, since the PCIE firmware is built into the HBAs.

    How much RAM you got?

    I take the max sane memory for a platform, cut it in half and put that in (since that's generally the level where it takes some tweaking to get happy, but is still possible to get high performance out of). So for Threadripper, it's 128G, for Ryzen/Intel consumer, it's 64G. The one exception to...

    Display driver crashes when primary display is turned off for 5+ minutes

    windows shift b should reset the display driver, if I'm remembering right. That being said - weird shit happens with HDMI and TVs in my experience. Give the reset a try and see what happens.

    Windows 11 Will Soon Block All Default Browser Workarounds

    I haven’t upgraded a laptop since… 2005? It’s a laptop. order what you need. By the time it needs upgrading the platform is done. Drive capacity I could maybe see there; M2 is easy and yeah, Apple should have added that, but ram and the rest? Meh.

    Windows 11 Will Soon Block All Default Browser Workarounds

    Files and apps work fine in the enterprise and never touch apples tools. Because they all use Microsoft. OneDrive, teams, etc. Apple tools are a bloody joke. Not the hill to try and die on. I’m an Apple user all the way, but outside of iOS, and MacOS, it ain’t the software of theirs that...

    This. It’s EVERYWHERE now but the brits did sue over it from before.

    What's the current AMD Situation on Linux?

    Yes? Other than the Lutris install (copy paste the command) I haven’t had to touch the CLI for a game in years. Steam is a double click. Lutris handles installs. It’s all seamless from that perspective.

    Star Citizen - media blowout, Chris Robert's new game

    Oh agreed. I just bought more ships. Not precisely arguing that- I’m wondering that ~if by doing so~ I’ve helped unbalance the game more. And if so, what will the long term plan be? I’m speculating - how it’ll work out, what we’ll see, wtc

    Star Citizen - media blowout, Chris Robert's new game

    Oh totally agree - the exact fear I have is that this has gone so far the only way to ~survive~ now is to continue with that :( How does a group of newbies compete with an org that ~starts~ with capital ships on day 1? The ability to generate funds, capture territory, make an impact on the...

    Star Citizen - media blowout, Chris Robert's new game

    I’m wondering if pledges will have to be claimed and take time to unwind in the game? Eg- a timer and on day 1 everyone has just their starters till 5 days in then tier 2 ships drop, etc

    Solid State Drives Too Damn Small

    Some OSes and enterprise platforms CAN use them as storage, but it's WEIRD as hell to do so. Whacky shit, and only enterprise OSes.

    Star Citizen - media blowout, Chris Robert's new game

    One other thing - given that I'm not 100% sold they'll ever stop releasing real money stuff, I'm also not sure that'd be a good ~idea~. Right now, the economy is FUCKED - my org, with 14 people, has 3 Idris, 2 Pioneer, 2 Kraken (soon to be a third), 3 Polaris, 2 Perseus, 5 Moles, god knows how...

    Solid State Drives Too Damn Small

    It's called persistent memory, and it's stupid expensive.
