    Re: Software

    Bootloaders.

    Bit hard to do anything else without them :)

    Re: Windows 10 --- Latest Tech Preview

    Two points:

    You should not disable Windows Update.
    This thread is about pre-release versions of Windows, so stuff will absolutely break in these versions.

    Re: How to Drive in Auckland

    Also don't forget, turning your hazard lights on gives you the right to park anywhere you like, including on the footpath.

    Re: Internet Explorer 11

    I highly recommend never opening Internet Explorer ever again, and using something modern instead :)

    It works just fine, of course ;)
  7. Re: Advice required - Windows 7 updating for Nod (&me)

    This is poor advice.

    Of course updates protect you, otherwise patches for zero-day exploits wouldn't be a thing.
  8. Re: Advice required - Windows 7 updating for Nod (&me)

    I would not recommend sticking with an unsupported OS. Windows 10 really isn't all that different to Windows 7 anyway so you'll be fine :) Please stop using Internet Explorer entirely, especially...

    Google Maps can do that too. :)
  10. Re: What happens when someone sniffs a dollar -

    I switched to Bitwarden as soon as LastPass made this announcement.

    How else did they think making the free product useless would turn out? ;)

    :+1:

    Who knows what other policies are applied that would just hinder a home user. My work PC for instance has the Sleep option removed...

    Re: Windows 10 --- Latest Tech Preview

    I can safely say I've never had a Windows update render a PC unbootable.

    I can't say the same about Linux :)

    Re: Graphics card?

    It's worth noting that HDMI to DVI adapters are very cheap as they use the same signalling, so DVI on the PC might not be a requirement :)

    Re: M.2 Socket 3

    "M key" and "PCIe mode only" are pretty much the same thing - the M.2 slot only supports (physically) drives running in PCIe mode (which is what you want anyway).

    22602280 is actually two things,...

    Re: How to retrieve Win7 Product key from PC

    4GB is enough. It won't be the Superman of PCs, but it'll run fine.

    Re: Iíve nicknamed my laptop Laggard :-(

    Only four years old and it's that slow already? Could just be the OS bogged down, try a clean install of Windows first.

    Re: Window 10 2009 Out now

    I'm just going to point out here that I had to drive out to fix a Linux server the other day as an update stopped it from booting entirely.

    Never had that problem with Windows :)

    Re: Auckland back to level 3

    :+1:

    Either we lock down and screw over the economy, or don't lock down and screw over the economy, the health of the general public and the health system.

    Seems like an easy choice to me.
  25. Re: Are there any people out there using Cat6 or Cat7 at the moment?

    Every new cable I get now is at least Cat6 :)

    Once we build I plan to wire up the entire house with Cat6a, to future proof for 10 gigabit Ethernet once it becomes common.
