  1. WAOW. That's kind of cowardly gouging. Makes you wonder what greater powers have put pressure on either Microcenter or ATI/Radeon. What harm does it do the manufacturer and/or vendor to affect Bitcoin mining? I sense some sort of conflict of interest...
  2. Yessss! Been waiting for creative to return. Also, craftbook is a good surprise! Thanks for the update!
  3. The Expanse is very good. So is Sneaky Pete, even though it's an Amazon Prime exclusive. I got rid of Netflix a long time ago. Prime is much more worth it.
  4. I may, I may. I actually got TS on my old gaming rig. May have to reinstall some of those gems. I remember Skype filling up with all the Danish folk and it was hilarious. When not speaking English, good background noise, haha.
  5. Same. Bought a house almost a year ago and still doing massive amounts of stuff to it .. and working full time. Should put someone in charge who would actually utilize the resources. I can remember wishing I had hosting capabilities (and knowledge) back in high school for games like Counterstrike and F.E.A.R. But it would be nice to pop in every now and again to a more active community, lol. Most everyone else has been busy with school as far as I've been hearing.
  6. Upgraded the old 2012 Macbook Pro Retina 15" to the same thing, just late 2015 model with 16GB RAM (double), 512GB SSD (double), and a Radeon R9 M370X (probably almost double). Upgraded my Vizio 37" 1080p panel to the LG 43" UHD (2160p) panel. Which is actually smaller due to a nearly non-existent bezel; and I can store stuff under it! Same monitors and driver: Yamaha HS7s driven by a Steinberg UR22. Same expansion hub: Anker 7-port USB 3.0 x 2 fast charge (1.5A + 2.1A). Same peripherals, intstruments, and so forth. The purpose of this upgrade was to be able to run 2160p at 60Hz reliably for extra room when working with timeline and panel-based applications. The extra space really helps and once you get over the tiny-ness of everything, you're hooked. It's much easier and less expensive than multiple displays. If anyone is planning on going 4K/UHD for computing purposes, I would highly suggest a screen larger than 40". Any smaller, and most ordinary objects become distorted and would require a magnifying glass in order to enjoy. The forum looks hilarious...
  7. I have only been looking a few days, but have seen many different offerings in the NAS industry. Everything from n-bay server rack mounts to dual bay, 2.5" slim NAS cases. The prices range from $150 to $15,000. Obviously, if you start filling the devices with pre-configured RAID arrays and sophisticated software, the price leaps up. But I'm looking to fill one with my own existing storage drives. The names that shined brightest in my search so far have been Qnap, Synology, and Western Digital. I have had bad experiences in the past with WD Caviar drives losing very important data, so points are immediately taken away from WD. In my opinion, Qnap has the superior styling; most with rugged, industrial builds whereas Synology looks like a clone of Apple products. All have great software, supporting server, desktop, and mobile platforms. I'll be hooking this up to the Linksys WRT1900AC, which needs no introduction. It is simply the best. Should be no problems with throughput, compatibility, and reliability. Just looking for a 2 to 4 bay dedicated NAS solution. Thoughts?
  8. I seriously need to overhaul my storage configuration and will probably begin with Windows 10. Not sure about the software raids, so I won't be taking advantage of the improvements on that, haha. In 8.1, my software raid on my 2 and 1.5 TB drives went south and could only be opened in a sketchy, underdeveloped tool in a linux terminal. Was too close... This will likely take place in a new build. Hopefully something lighter than 70lbs. and quieter/cooler than a jet engine.
  9. Look what I found hiding under my Twisted Tea bottle cap:
  10. Check out Robbaz' Gaben Ville... xD He has to be one of the funniest YouTube gamers. Epic city.
  11. LOL .. that's awesome that you can even do that! I made a decent industrialized city and refused to expand until plants kept complaining about a lack of workers and I had to build up the other side of the freeway. Managing sanitary and storm lines is what I do on a daily basis, so it'd be really bad if I screwed it up in a game. ;P
  12. Got the Deluxe because it was only a few more dollars with the discount. Looks pretty amazing...
  13. Wow! Might have to grab this one. Watched the whole thing, looks really detailed.
  14. Thanks! Yeah, Coaster's Verano has the sport / suspension package. A surprisingly high weight to HP ratio. That's gotta be fast.
  15. Certainly -- who wouldn't, it looks pretty amazing!
