    Temple OS - the smartest programmer alive

    I remember this guy from back in the day. Sad to see him pass away. A 2MB OS is actually impressive.

    Intel NUC devices

    I remember these came out years ago, and Intel is still making them, but now they are actually quite powerful. I really like the NUC7i5BNK. It's an i5 model, supports 32gig of memory and uses a .m2 SSD, and had 4k support. It's also vesa compatible so you can mount it behind a monitor or TV as...

    Your next PC build. AMD or Intel?

    You know at this moment if I was going to do another PC I think I would go all AMD (never thought I would say that again). It has been years, but I think they are kinda the leader right now including their video cards. It's funny how the cycle goes around and around. What about you?

    Computer glasses

    I was looking at computer glasses lately to help with reducing eye strain from computer screens. (et. https://gunnar.com/) In the past year or two, I've been developing more eye strain with related slight headaches behind the eyes. Obviously working at a computer full time and at home will put...

    Walmart's computers

    I don't get to Walmart much anymore, but when did all the computer stuff change? I see they carry a full line of Corsair mechanical keyboards, mice etc. Also noticed they even sell gaming monitors such as Asus. What really blew me away is they no carry gaming PCs on display with full RGB...

    Homemade Wi-Fi gun

    @Davidc might be interested in this for some major stretching between farms. Pretty cool especially if you need to reach another building far away.

    People using you because of your knowledge

    I am sure that we have complained about this before, but will it ever end for me? I haven't worked in the computer industry for over a year now. It is nice just being able to do my own thing and not have to worry about it. But I will tell you a story and it makes me angry, yet I have to deal...

    Razer products

    Has anyone ever used their stuff? I think I have a older Death adder that i still haven't used yet, But I always like the feel of their mechanical keyboards. I got to feel their new Razer Ornata Chroma keyboard keys and really liked it. Apparently you have to use their software for their...

    DDOS attack on America

    Even though I was away from the internet most of the say, it looks like there was a huge DDOS attack on a major DNS host. What they are not telling you is this is a test for upcoming war. Just a test to see if they can drop communications. DDOS Attack

    Computer component prices these days

    So my parents old desktop that I built them is getting quite old in terms of components. So I have some old parts available. The only thing missing is some DDR3 memory. I came in and popped on Newegg/Amazon to see how much some would be. Geez stuff is so dirt cheap anymore. I might as well buy a...

    Apple and Macs

    I know @C Pav thought I was joking the other day when he was talking about getting a new computer and I recommended a Macbook Pro. My computing taste have really changed lately. Maybe I am just getting old, but I'm not into tweaking etc. anymore. I just like something stable and simple. Not...

    Ufo detector software

    Ran across this software tonight. It is being developed to detect Ufos using software that works with different cameras. It can detect false positive such as birds and planes. Looks fairly straight forward and can even use your webcam. I think it's fairly new software but the developer seems to...

    Data recovery tools

    *NOTE, I no longer will be maintaining these links. Neither will I keep adding new tools or keep up on the latest tools since I am no longer in this line of work. I thought I would keep a list of tools for data recovery. These ones I have personally used. [email protected] Undelete - Does a fairly...
