    My wife gets dozens of them a day. Google is smart enough to send them to the spam folder. I pointed out she needs to make sure to never use that password or anything like it again.

    They probably got your email and password from one of the many websites that have been hacked, and emailed you threatening the rest. I doubt that they have accessed your personal machine at all, even if you use the same password on it. That said, I would still change all passwords that are the...

    New phone time: old-school

    I think it probably comes down to the software. Motorola is good about not preloading the phone with a bunch of garbage. Without all that stuff constantly checking in it might make a big difference. That combined with the display not being on a lot.

    Something Random

    You seem like a really smart guy when it comes to most things. It is clear you do a lot of research on audio gear, but for some reason you seem to only get your news from the GOP bubble. There is a lot of room for negotiation on doing what is right on this issue, but you racists are only...

    Something Random

    Screw the people who have been here for decades, living a good life, contributing to society, because they weren't lucky enough to be born here and their parents brought them here. Hell, even some of the Republicans think that is wrong. The Republicans were cool with letting CHIP expire for...

    Bluetooth speakers

    I've done that several times and never had that experience. I suspect it was a one time deal. I wouldn't let it discourage me from doing it again if it was otherwise the most attractive option.

    Best movie you've seen

    I enjoyed Passengers well enough. I think most of the bad reviews are due to the actions of the main character rather than the overall quality of the movie. I really enjoyed Hacksaw Ridge as well. I went in not knowing anything about the story and very much enjoyed it.

    My impression was she was appropriately naive for having lived on an island and not being exposed to the norms of life outside of the one she had known.

    Android 7.0 reviews?

    I recall in the past, sometimes when an android got a software update, the battery needed some time to re-calibrate before being accurate again. Maybe that is what you're running into?

    Vehicle Telemetry Recorders

    I have little doubt that even as flawed as the current system may be, it is still far better than virtually every human driver. You can't say for sure if a human had been driving any other car in that situation, without AEB, that there wouldn't have still been a crash. I'd still rather have it...

    Because in the US we don't punish innocent people. You know, the whole it is better to let one guilty man go free than punish an innocent? These people were already being vetted, I'm all for vetting them more if it is possible, I don't think that's what this is about. If we're all about safety...

    OK, I'll bite for a minute. I'll start by saying the countries he blocked haven't produced a terrorist that have attacked the USA in some time. There have been multiple terrorist attacks by US citizens here during that time though. He "accidentally" blocked people with visas and green cards...

    I've been contributing with one machine for awhile, except when I started having issues with nvidia drivers. When they sort out their driver issues, I'll start folding with my main machine while idle again.

    GPU slot failed on 2 different computers

    It appears that version 373.06 is the newest nvidia driver version that works with folding@home. It was released Oct 6th 2016 and there's been 4 releases since which none work with folding@home. Thanks for the idea ddrueding, if the driver wasn't the issue, that would have been my next stop.

    GPU slot failed on 2 different computers

    I don't have a spare PS. I've done some research, and it sounds like Nvidia has borked folding for the last several driver versions, so I probably just ran into that. I haven't had time to test with an older driver version, but should be able to by tomorrow and will report back.

    GPU slot failed on 2 different computers

    Anyone have any idea what's going on here? I've had trouble with one of my computers for awhile, I gave up on it until today when I tried a new driver. I keep getting GPU slot failed for awhile on that one. My other computer, different configuration, but both have GTX970s in them, was fine for...

    Check your local craigslist too. Whenever I'm looking for something on there, I ALWAYS see people selling bikes. People always buy bikes and fitness equipment thinking it will motivate them to exercise and it virtually never works out. Eventually they get tired of seeing it and sell it for a...

    Over half of Democrats identify as Christian. It basically comes down to you don't like their beliefs, no matter how close to yours they are, so you want them to convert, to get out of your country or be eliminated from the planet. Sounds an awful lot like radical islam to me, just a different...

    Why stop there? Maybe we should bomb the ghettos in the US because the locals are covering for the gang members who cause so much trouble? It is ridiculous and pretty telling that you're going to make a blanket statement that the liberals hate Christians, like they aren't Christians also...

    Your implication was that Obama has done something with EO that other presidents haven't done. I mistakenly took that to mean that you meant (as many do) that he has issued a lot of them. You specify that he can't re-write existing immigration legislation. I don't believe he did re-write them...

    Politics Has Obama really used executive orders more than the last several presidents? If this data is correct we have to go back to the 19th century to find a president who used them less per year in office. I also think we're very much living in a pro...

    dSLR thread

    I would say it is vastly different. If the photographer is sending stuff to the editor, is he going to send all his stuff, or copies of his best/most relevant stuff? If the photographer decides to delete his own bad pictures, it is him deciding it wasn't good enough, not some doofus punching...

    Why are chargers so lame?

    Yes, a friend "upgraded" her computer to an AMD something or other and sold me a GTX 970 which I have folding when my computer is idle, and occasionally when I'm doing something where I don't mind a small delay.

    problem USB flash drive refuses formatting, due to write protection

    Have you tried any third party format utilities? I don't know of any specifically but I'm sure they're out there. You might have better success with a linux bootable cd and use linux format. Again, sorry I can't be more specific, it's not my area of expertise but it is where I would look if I...

    My video card went kaput and I didn't feel like the points from my measly processor amounted to enough to justify the heat and electricity. I'm hoping to replace the card with something more current but money is tight right now. When I replace it I will probably return to folding.
