    Action figures in your PC case trend

    So I keep seeing this everywhere. It seems like people are buying those Pop Funko figures and are putting them in their PC cases. Is this the next RGB trend?

    What mouse do you use for your computer?

    I'm thinking about a new mouse for my home PC, and was wondering what everyone uses? I currently use a Logitech G502, but was thinking about a new Coarsair mouse. Looking at the M65 RGB Elite, or the Ironclaw. Here is my current: The two I am considering:

    Video Cards and other PC components pricing right now

    I want to complain about the current prices on video cards, and the availability as well. It has been years now since I have updated my video card, but dam there just isn't anything out there.

    The Tandy 1000 computer

    I ran across this video last night while Youtube surfing. The Tandy computer was a big influence in my life and got me started with computers. We never had one growing up, but thanks to a family I knew growing up that were quite well off I was able to experience them. The Commador 64 is still my...

    Best brand of hard drive?

    I would like to see what brand people prefer for their hard drive these days? I have switched brands throughout the years, but lately I have been using the Seagate 'Iron Wolfs' for my NAS. I know the WD reds are suppose to be good as well. For regular computers I always recommend a SSD or .M2...

    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...
