    HTPC - no more?

    Two of my '19 Pros have succumbed to the out of storage bug even with large external SSDs attached as adopted storage directly after factory resetting and ticking the box in developer options to allow all apps to go on adopted storage regardless of manifest values. Others are unaffected. If the...

    Voice Assistants Dying, Alexa $10 Billion Loss Expected in 2022

    i had wondered why it worked fine in my android auto trucks for ages and then for other ages it doesn't. That explains a lot and indeed hopefully it can remember how I say the measly 4 bog standard names I call when I'm driving.

    Getting a signal 200 yards away.

    I take touch typing for granted, unless you are disabled I can't really comprehend being [H] and not being able to do at least 110 WPM without looking :/.

    Getting a signal 200 yards away.

    In that case they should buy a large monitor and turn Scaling way the F up. Also I looked at his post history just now, he definitely can see or does text scaling and only uses caps to yell at folks like I thought.

    Getting a signal 200 yards away.

    If his only option is Starlink then the odds of there being underground utilities are very low, if anything there might be an oil or natural gas pipeline but definitely no underground electric, and odds are he has a well and a septic system instead of city water and sewer.

    Why don't PC cases have 5.25" external drive bays anymore?

    I like plexamp too, I use it most days on android auto and on the phone by itself. The galaxy tab s8+ with the maximum storage and a 1TB sd card holds quite a lot of music too but I went for the 5g one instead of a high storage wifi model.

    Rare Arc A770 LE Scavenger Hunt GPU

    The one I saw was more recent and they wanted to use quickcsync on an old server to do more 4k to 1080p and 1080p to 480p transcodes than his old server cpu could do. It performed worse than a modded 1050ti in that it can't do as many concurrent streams.

    How is a twin turbo dually one ton transit not a real full size van? https://www.ford.com/commercial-trucks/transit-cargo-van/models/transit-van/ The transit connect is FWD but literally no T150, T250, or T350 is they're all RWD with optional AWD.

    Why don't PC cases have 5.25" external drive bays anymore?

    My dog likes music too, with this I can cart around the entire library and i have them numbered with a laminated master sheet like a disemboweled jukebox and an excel file that keep up with all of it :D. The phones are crammed full of other stuff besides music too though, like maps of 4...

    Why don't PC cases have 5.25" external drive bays anymore?

    That's what I do usually since it does android auto too but sometimes it's nice in places where it's hundreds of miles away to cellular service, and the phones are so large now that they don't really fit in the cubby that contains the ports while it's closed anymore but I've never seen a flash...

    Why don't PC cases have 5.25" external drive bays anymore?

    There's command line and gui software for ripping Tidal Hifi contents if you have a subscription. You just get a sub and download all you want and then turn auto renew off. You can resub again when you have a critical mass of things you want again, and fill your plex server this way cheaply and...

    I like the killswitch case except with it's travel cover it precludes the use of many right angle cables. The fan in my deck isn't sensitive to the magnetic kickstand but they're making a new one that has a bayonet mount instead and shipping it for free to everyone that bought one, replete with...
