  1. Nehrim + Deadly Reflex 5

    Nehrim is now at Nexus, so there's hope there will be more mods to complement the current three.
  2. What are you listening to right now?

  3. What are you listening to right now?

    Classic from Dire Straits: There's a list of Guardians of the Galaxy (the ORIGINAL GOG ) songs here.
  4. Trump - Seriously?

    Well, it's Hue and Cry all over the U.S. at this time, and as the elections are approaching take heed from a rather prophetic scene from an old movie:
  5. Bethesda.net Discussion

    Many of the moderators wouldn't know what to do about it. I'd open up a ticket for it.
  6. What are you listening to right now?

    Can't remember if this was posted before. Just in case, here it is again.
  7. My PC Woes

    For fan blades choked with dust there's an old thread on canned air- compressed air is fine as long as the fans are kept still. Passmark benchmarks once ruled the roost- they still look fairly credible- the Threadripper (aka Dustripper at least as far as fans are concerned) sounds as if it is made to rip threads to shreds- is it also designed to run a process threadbare?
  8. Network Accessible Storage (NAS) Devices

    Yeah, consumption hasn't got to petabytes yet so no urgency to expand- according to the specs: Got it going! A bit slow to appear in Windows, but once in, all looking good through the DSM in browser. Nice interaction with the UPS as well, it would be nice to control other aspects of the UPS through the Ethernet as well , but that might be wishful thinking. Cinch mapping the drives in Windows. The biggest shock was finding the max volume capacity was only half the real capacity. All explained here. What a relief!
  9. (De)Motivational... and Funny Stuff (NSFW)

    Perhaps the most noble profession was that of a chimney sweep- viz Jeremy Lloyd in the Avengers:
  10. Trump - Seriously?

    In the middle of a QI episode someone said "anti Bircher counter culture." At first thought it was a joke like "We don't serve that kind of muesli here." -more research and dredged up this from 2016: https://www.thenewamerican.com/usnews/politics/item/24677-is-trumpism-really-bircherism More recently, there's this- we get the picture, but all the man ever wanted to do is make America great again. Like it was before the hotels.
  11. My PC Woes

    Great news! A plug for the recovery software name here is sure to be a giant help for those of us with drives set to fail in the coming weeks/months/years.
  12. Network Accessible Storage (NAS) Devices

    Went for the popular DS218+ with 2TB Iron Wolf drives- the Netgear alternative looked attractive- although it expects JRE to be installed. Don't know whether it's worth considering a Sine wave AVR for this setup- research required.
