    Cryptocurrency Mining and GPUs

    Between cryptocurrency miners, low supply of new cards, and high consumer demand, used GPU prices are through the roof Last time around, I sold my RX 480 for as much as I paid for it; this time, I sold my 5700XT netting about $100 more than I paid for it Better to be selling shovels than...

    Cable Modem IP Different Than My Public IP

    CGNAT? I wouldn't worry about the IP information. Even if the owner hasn't changed in years, I've seen them be wrong.

    Shouldn't portable heaters come out in the fall, not the spring?

    Search function is garbage.

    Hmmm. I have almost 900GB, the vast majority of which is FLAC. Do we need to switch user names? ;)

    I picked up a 3600 non-X. I'm running it stock on a B450 board with the stock cooler. It runs 100% load all day at 3.8GHz and pretty quiet. Intel has work to do.

    TDP is, unfortunately, a load of baloney. Intel's seem more honest but considerably more useless; their TDPs are basically what the cooling solution needs to dissipate for the chip to only hit the base clock. AMD's TDPs are supposedly what the cooling solution needs to dissipate for the...
