DaemonFChttp://www.welivesecurity.com/2014/03/21/10-years-of-mac-os-x-malware/Aug 03 02:03
DaemonFCEven their malware is pretty. LOLAug 03 02:03
DaemonFCThis isn't a complete list. I've seen some rather interesting Mac malware. There are some huge-ish Mac botnets out there, mostly just coming from one or two highly pirated pieces of software. (Microsoft Office for Mac and Adobe Photoshop.).Aug 03 02:03
DaemonFCI wonder why people even use Photoshop sometimes. Obviously, 95% of the people you see with it don't need it. You really have to wonder how they got Adobe Photoshop full edition and Windows Ultimate on a Dell Inspiron. I don't think they come with those.... Well, no, you don't have to wonder how they got it. They got it under the terms of the PBPL, of course. ;)Aug 03 02:03
-TechrightsBot-tr/#techrights-www.welivesecurity.com | 10 years of Mac OS X malware [ http://ur1.ca/hw9ls ]Aug 03 02:03
DaemonFCIt's nice to see some ***hole on a Mac will happily pay over a thousand dollars for a toothless computer, and then try to balance the ledger by stealing software.Aug 03 02:03
DaemonFCThe Macs aren't particularly useful individually, for mining bitcoins, but you've got a bunch of systems that are sitting ducks and have some processing power shared between them, so it's obvious why the malware problem is there.Aug 03 02:03
DaemonFCMaybe someone can answer this for me since I haven't upgraded RAM in a very long time.Aug 03 02:20
DaemonFCI have three 4 GB DDR3-1600 modules in my motherboard, 1.5v, 11-11-11-30.Aug 03 02:20
DaemonFCI found a 4 GB module of another brand on Newegg that says 4 GB DDR3-1600, 1.5v, 11-11-11-28.Aug 03 02:21
DaemonFCWill it work? Aug 03 02:21
DaemonFCDoesn't seem to be a huge difference.Aug 03 02:23
DaemonFCI know I've gotten away with mixing and matching RAM before on older DDR RAM, but I am not really up to speed on what's changed.Aug 03 02:24

DaemonFCI don't know if it'll work properly, but if it's only gonna be a few bucks, I could take the chance.Aug 03 03:40
DaemonFCI'm probably gonna take the closest RAM I can find. I can't find an exact match for the modules that are in there, but ADATA and Team seem to have RAM that is very close.Aug 03 04:26
DaemonFCObviously I want to maximize the chances that it works. :PAug 03 04:26

prometeoHi Roy I am woritting to you because of your article: The European Patent Office is Breaking the Law Regarding Software Patents, German Parliament Finally ComplainsAug 03 21:01
prometeoIn addition to that there are some other issues in the EPO working that worries to me.Aug 03 21:02
prometeoFirst. I wonder if EPO is an Organization that applies Equal Opportutinties Jobs or make unethical discriminations among candidates. I am talking because of my own experienceAug 03 21:03
prometeoSencond if they have t be so rude and unpolite. They don't answer jobs applications. Just in the case you want a visit with Human RElationships department. the guard and the main entrance tells you that he doesn't know thwere is the HHRR.Aug 03 21:05
prometeoThird. It is very sad for an European citicenz to see how EU institutions are surrendering to USA companies interestAug 03 21:06
prometeoI say so mainly because the new CPC patent classification, has elicted the A61P relavite to therapeutic drug activity. I can not think what is the reasonAug 03 21:07

DaemonFCThe iPhone only comes with 1 gig of RAM too.Aug 04 01:34
DaemonFCAll in all, the iPhone is to smartphones as Internet Explorer 6 was to web browsers. Aug 04 01:34
DaemonFCThe reason millions of people started bailing is because Android pulled ahead years ago, and now Apple is going around trying to copy as many Android features as they can, but some of the iPhone's most crippling and aggravating limitations are going to survive at least into iPhone 6 and iOS 8. It just won't be as painful. But for that price, do you really want a painful and limited phone? Should people be paying $600-850 on a phone and then Aug 04 01:34
DaemonFCmaking compromises with things like screen resolutions? At that price, they should expect quad HD now. The LG G3 really set a new bar for what a phone should be. Aug 04 01:34

DaemonFCIf I can get it at the right price, it should make a nice upgrade from my Geforce 560 GTXAug 05 12:37

DaemonFCThat's not a terrible card, but what the hell is it doing in a machine with a Core i7? :PAug 05 18:58
DaemonFCThe Core i7 should probably at least be paired with a 7870.Aug 05 18:58
DaemonFCI guess I did OK though. I bought it knowing about that. The first thing I did was swap it out for the Geforce GTX 560 SC I already owned. :)Aug 05 18:59
abeNd-organ actual card or just onboard video?Aug 05 18:59
DaemonFCactual cardAug 05 18:59
DaemonFCThe 7770 can run some decent games at good speed on high graphics modeAug 05 18:59
abeNd-orgmust have been cheapest thing they had to throw in that day then, guessing this is a consumer grade machine & not business class?Aug 05 18:59
DaemonFCThe GTX 560 is a step up though. It's closer to a RadeonHD 6870 or so.Aug 05 19:00
abeNd-orgi was looking at the evga 750Ti superclocked, inexpensive & supposed to be a really good card for the priceAug 05 19:00
DaemonFCoh, I saw one on Newegg this morning.Aug 05 19:00
DaemonFCemail deals with a rebate attached.Aug 05 19:00
DaemonFCIt's not as powerful as my GTX 560, but it doesn't use a lot of power.Aug 05 19:00
DaemonFCFor a card that you don't have to plug into the power supply, the 750 Ti is pretty good.Aug 05 19:01
DaemonFCThe only downside to my GTX 560 vs the 7770 ("8760") is that the firmware on the Geforce doesn't work without BIOS interfaces.Aug 05 19:02
*abeNd-org1 (~kklenke@rrcs-50-84-221-254.sw.biz.rr.com) has joined #techrightsAug 05 19:02
DaemonFCSo you have to use the CSM on the uEFI firmware to bring up the Geforce. :PAug 05 19:02
DaemonFCAnd you have to do it before you swap the card or you'll just get a blank screen. :DAug 05 19:02
DaemonFCand it's not secure boot compatible, of courseAug 05 19:03
DaemonFChehAug 05 19:03
DaemonFCSo if you turn secure boot off and tell your uEFI to pretend it's a BIOS to the card, then the card will come upAug 05 19:04
abeNd-org1i know they have the 1 & 2 gig version, was hoping to get 2 gig, if i can find any reason to have the extra memory...considering i dont actually game, or have the time. Aug 05 19:04
*abeNd-org has quit (Ping timeout: 250 seconds)Aug 05 19:04
DaemonFCEVGA never provided a firmware update, but you know how these companies are. "We haven't sold those in two years, so fuck you.".Aug 05 19:04
DaemonFCWhy would you get a 2 GB?Aug 05 19:04
DaemonFCThat's another thing I don't understand. The "8760 OEM" is a little different than the 7770 Ghz Edition. The 7770 had 1 GB, and the "8760" has 2.Aug 05 19:05
DaemonFCIt doesn't really make any difference.Aug 05 19:05
abeNd-org1since i wouldnt be buying another video card for yrs, getting the most memory i could, supposedly some of the newer games can take advantage of crazy amounts of video memoryAug 05 19:05
DaemonFCIf you ever go to run a game that needs more than a GB of vram, the card would fall over and die under that load anyway.Aug 05 19:06
DaemonFCSo, save your money unless you just plan on running three desktops or want to use crazy high resolutions or something.Aug 05 19:06
DaemonFC1920 x 1080 is no problem on a 1 GB card.Aug 05 19:06
abeNd-org1thats what they said back when people ran the OAK256 ;)Aug 05 19:06
DaemonFCMy GTX 560 has 1 GB. I still put it in instead of the one with 2.Aug 05 19:07
abeNd-org1at home i run 3 monitors, but i dont think any of the games i would play (diablo3/starcraft, not WoW if i ever had the time, or the games :)) take advantage of multimonitorAug 05 19:08
DaemonFCI just don't believe it matters. There's no use trying to futureproof this stuff. After three or four years, it's done.Aug 05 19:08
abeNd-org1i remember back in the days some racing games & quake based ones did, Alice was awesome on triple monitorAug 05 19:08
abeNd-org1yea, the 1gig version is about $30 less, i could use that to buy a game, now if only i had timeAug 05 19:09
DaemonFCWell, the 750 Ti would run a video game like a slideshow anyway if you tried cranking everything up.Aug 05 19:09
DaemonFCSo, what good is 2 GB of RAM?Aug 05 19:09
DaemonFCyeah, the extra $30 isn't worth it. Not on that card.Aug 05 19:10
DaemonFCLots of RAM makes no sense on low/mid grade cards.Aug 05 19:10
abeNd-org1I can possibly justify ~100 USD on a card, so the 1GB superclocked Ti750 evga would just about fit the bill, no way i can justify anything more expensiveAug 05 19:10
DaemonFCOn top of the line ones it might, if you're running really demanding stuff on maximum settings at high res.Aug 05 19:11
DaemonFCGet a used card off of ebay.Aug 05 19:11
abeNd-org1it would still be far & above the onboard intel 4000 i have nowAug 05 19:11
DaemonFCThe 7870s only seem to run about $70-80 by the time the auctions are done.Aug 05 19:11
DaemonFCThey do need two 6 pins though.Aug 05 19:11
abeNd-org1how good is the 7870 compared to the 750Ti? i havent paid much attention to ATIAug 05 19:11
DaemonFCBut they would pulverize that 750 Ti.Aug 05 19:12
DaemonFCLike, uhh, about four times faster.Aug 05 19:12
DaemonFCGive or take. :)Aug 05 19:12
abeNd-org1the other reason i was going for the 750Ti is power requirements, wife wont approve of buying a replacement power supplyAug 05 19:12
abeNd-org1those 750 Ti work with 300watt PSUAug 05 19:12

DaemonFCI've got a 4670 and a 5670 that I'm not really doing too much with.Aug 05 19:13
abeNd-org1core i5, 12gb ram 1tb wdc black, so not a bad box for free, even though it moosAug 05 19:13
DaemonFCThe 5670 isn't a fantastic card, but it's still better than integrated video, and it doesn't need to plug into the power supply.Aug 05 19:14
DaemonFCSupports DirectX 11 and OpenGL 4.4.Aug 05 19:14
abeNd-org1yea, that & cost were the reasons i was looking at the 750TiAug 05 19:14
DaemonFCI think the 750 Ti only uses like 55 watts at maximum load.Aug 05 19:14
DaemonFCSo, you're well under the limit of the port itself, which is 75 watts.Aug 05 19:15
abeNd-org1yep, i dont have the budget approval for a 900W PSU just for a $300+ video card :)Aug 05 19:15
DaemonFCWell, you could probably get away with a 750 Ti on that psu. I wouldn't try to run anything more.Aug 05 19:16
abeNd-org1hrm, newegg only has the 2GB varietyAug 05 19:16
DaemonFCThe newer Core series processors and DDR3 RAM use less power than ever, so you could probably get close to the 75 watt port limit without risking your psu.Aug 05 19:16
abeNd-org1yea, the amazon reviews have people running 300watt PSU with that card & actually use it for gaming, they are happy enoughAug 05 19:16
DaemonFCMy Core i7 4770 only uses 68 watts at full load.Aug 05 19:16
abeNd-org1i dont plan on playing crysis or anything like thatAug 05 19:17
DaemonFCThe Phenom II X4 that it replaced was three times slower and used 125 watts max.Aug 05 19:17
DaemonFC:)Aug 05 19:17
abeNd-org1$125 vs $154 for 1GB vs 2GBAug 05 19:17
DaemonFCwell, if you can get the 2 GB version for not much more after factoring in the rebate, then go for it.Aug 05 19:18
DaemonFCI'd say don't pay more than $10 more, or you're being robbed. It's just not likely to be useful.Aug 05 19:18
DaemonFCReally, video games are pretty poorly optimized, for the most part.Aug 05 19:19
abeNd-org1yea, i doubt diablo3/starcraft2/older games could use more than 1GB ramAug 05 19:19
DaemonFCSome developers, like Bethesda, just rush out broken unoptimized shit.Aug 05 19:19
DaemonFCAnd then they make their money and pretty much abandon it.Aug 05 19:19
DaemonFCand their broken game lingers on in Steam forever :)Aug 05 19:20

DaemonFCYeah, it looks like the R9 270X is a solid choice.Aug 06 02:09
DaemonFCI'm glad I didn't peel off that "Powered by Radeon" sticker. :)Aug 06 02:09
DaemonFCI chatted Newegg about their 10% off promo not working on a graphics card I wanted, and they said that it was because of free video games, but that they'd credit my card $19 and I can keep the free games!Aug 06 02:11
msbComcast just sent me an email saying they've increased my network speed.  So I reset the modem, router, and stopped and restarted the network in etc/init.dAug 06 02:35
msbI tried Comcast's speed test and it said it would start in 6,000 seconds, and began counting down.Aug 06 02:36
msbClever!  But another speed test website did show an increase to 2.47 MB/sec, which is definitely faster.Aug 06 02:37
msbOf course I'm not getting any faster from the server I'm really interested in, but what the hey, it's prime time here.Aug 06 02:41
DaemonFCI ended up buying the R9 270 instead of the 270X.Aug 06 03:01
DaemonFCThe 270X is only 3% faster, but the 270 was on sale for about 20% less today with free shipping.Aug 06 03:02
DaemonFCAnd it only uses 150 watts instead of 180.Aug 06 03:02
DaemonFCSo the R9 270 is going to be almost as fast as the Geforce GTX 660 Ti for $100 less.Aug 06 03:03
DaemonFCScore!Aug 06 03:03
DaemonFCmsb, I changed the order. The Sapphire Vapor X R9 270X was in their Daily Deal for $10 more.Aug 06 03:32

DaemonFCThe only part where Sapphire seems to have cut you a break with the Vapor-X R9 270X is that the six pin power cables plug into the side. So it's a question of whether I have 2" left behind my current card to work with without taking the drive bay out.Aug 06 17:21

DaemonFCMy case has a thing that props up against the graphics card. I was hoping I wouldn't have to remove that too. :PAug 06 17:24
DaemonFCI was thinking about editing my order again to go back to the R9 270, but that card is still 9" and the power cables plus into the back.Aug 06 17:26
DaemonFCI'm about 98% certain that I can get the Vapor X card in there without taking the drive bay out, but it's going to be....very close.Aug 06 17:26

DaemonFCabeNd-org, The XFX Double D was half an inch shorter, but cost $70 more. I'd rather do some work with the hard drive cage than pay another $70 for what's basically the same card.Aug 06 17:46
DaemonFCI've had XFX cards before, and they do a good job, but they're a little steep. Still, it does kind of piss me off that Sapphire couldn't find a way to get their card down by half a smegging inch. :PAug 06 17:46
DaemonFCabeNd-org, The people who made the cases for the VLB cards would have probably anticipated you using one though. :PAug 06 17:48
abeNd-orgyes, in fact there were guides/mounts on the edge side so it wouldn't bowAug 06 17:49
DaemonFCI'd run into the same space problem with the Dual-X configuration too because it's still nearly 10" and the six pin ports are on the back. :PAug 06 17:51

DaemonFCWell, I asked them to cancel the order.Aug 06 19:02
DaemonFCI'll look for another card.Aug 06 19:02
DaemonFCI busted a tape measurer out and decided that this is probably a bad idea. :PAug 06 19:02
DaemonFCIt might still come in the mail anyway. I should have checked instead of eyeballing it. :PAug 06 19:03
DaemonFCIf it fits, it's going to have less than a fifth of an inch to spare without hitting that drive cage.Aug 06 19:04
DaemonFCSo if I get it, then I'm probably going to have to take the cage out. I don't really want to. :PAug 06 19:04

DaemonFCI'm probably going to email Sapphire after I get this card situation sorted out and ask them why their Vapor-X cooler is so long when the competition's is half an inch shorter. Aug 06 19:39
DaemonFCA half an inch doesn't sound like much, but I'd imagine it's the difference between the card fitting and an angry pissed off customer in a lot of cases. I think that card makers should really work to make sure that they don't go over the 10" mark. 9.9" should probably be considered a limit, because it will usually fit at 9.9 with an acceptable amount of room left over.Aug 06 19:39
DaemonFCThen again, I've also ran into these really long cards that have the 6 pin ports at the back, so if that's what they're doing, then 9.5" should really be considered a limit, because you have to get the damned thing plugged in. If you put it on the sides, you're giving your customer about another 0.4" of clearance at the back.Aug 06 19:39
DaemonFCabeNd-org, Yeah. I'm sure I can fit the card. I'm most likely going to have to take the drive cage out. Damn them.Aug 06 21:00
DaemonFCAll this over less than a fifth of an inch.Aug 06 21:00

DaemonFCHoly fucking jumping shitballs. If I knew what their customer support was like, I would have paid the extra $20 at newegg.Aug 06 22:29
DaemonFCActually more. :PAug 06 22:30
DaemonFCNewegg had the graphics card I wanted for $189.99, but they charge 7% state sales tax.Aug 06 22:30
DaemonFCSo it would have worked out to $203.29.Aug 06 22:31
DaemonFCI got the same card on Tiger Direct for $169.99 with no tax, and it comes with a $10 mail in rebate form to send to Sapphire.Aug 06 22:31

DaemonFCMinceR, I hate sales tax.Aug 06 22:47
MinceRis that VAT?Aug 06 22:48
DaemonFCI hate taxes period. The state says it knows how to spend my money better than I do, and when they raise my taxes, they offset the increased revenue immediately, by giving the rich another tax break.Aug 06 22:48
DaemonFCNot the same, really.Aug 06 22:48
DaemonFCVAT doesn't happen here, at least not that I'm aware of.Aug 06 22:49
DaemonFCWith VAT, each step of the manufacturing process is taxed, so the price of the tax is built into the finished goods.Aug 06 22:49
DaemonFCWith a sales tax, the finished good is taxed based on the price paid for the good.Aug 06 22:49
DaemonFCThe VAT is harder to escape because in the US, each state is responsible for collecting their own sales tax, but if you buy from a company that has no physical presence in your state, then they won't collect the tax, and your state can't make them do it.Aug 06 22:50
*abeNd-org has quit (Quit: Leaving.)Aug 06 22:50
MinceRicAug 06 22:50
DaemonFCSo you can escape the sales tax by buying from a merchant that has no physical presence in your state.Aug 06 22:50
DaemonFCAmazon and Newegg have warehouses in Indiana. Tiger Direct contracts their warehousing out to another company.Aug 06 22:51
DaemonFCSo although there's a warehouse in Indiana, Tiger Direct doesn't legally have a presence here.Aug 06 22:51
DaemonFCThe end result is that they're immediately 7% cheaper than Newegg or Amazon on an item that is the same price at both places.Aug 06 22:51
DaemonFCSo, if you're looking to save money, you just do business with someone that isn't bound to collect the tax. You're supposed to report it on an Indiana tax form and pay it yourself, but nobody does.Aug 06 22:52
DaemonFCThe state usually never goes after anyone for it because it would have to take them to court and prove they didn't pay $10 in tax. :PAug 06 22:53
DaemonFCThey don't have the budget to go through millions of online orders and sue people to get a few dollars out of each one.Aug 06 22:54
DaemonFCAfter I get my Vapor X card hooked up and running, I'm going to throw that "RadeonHD 8760 OEM" (Radeon HD 7770 Ghz Edition with extra RAM) on ebay and see if I can get some money for it.Aug 06 22:55
DaemonFCIt's easily a $80-90 card, new.Aug 06 22:56
DaemonFCIf I can get $60 out of it, I'll be happy.Aug 06 22:56

DaemonFCHousing prices. Only people like me have to worry about housing prices and loans and all that. Between the government and the catholic church, you can get any house you want in Fort Wayne, as long as you're not an American.Aug 08 11:57
DaemonFCThe city went through and spent millions of dollars renovating a bunch of houses, and then they started renting them out to people with low incomes with a thing that said they own the home after so many years. So, they move in and enjoy a nice low house payment while they're tearing the shit out of the house again.Aug 08 11:58
DaemonFCroy, But, housing prices went up here, at least, because people expected housing prices to go up, and the loan money was cheap for a while to ensnare people.Aug 08 12:02
DaemonFCSo, you had a house that was costing very little on interest, or you could get a low interest mortgage on your existing house and blow all the money on your lifestyle inflation, and then the ARM trap was sprung, and everyone went underwater and started losing their houses.Aug 08 12:03

DaemonFC"Some users may object to numerous upsell attempts."Aug 08 19:14
DaemonFCWell, yeah. It's aggravating, but it's what happens when you go with the free version. Its purpose is to nag you to death until you fork over money.Aug 08 19:14
DaemonFC"just let avg update to 2014 today and now my graphics driver is crashing. getting 116 stop error on nvlddmkm.sys my laptop has bluescreened 3x in the past hour. i tried uninstalling avg but the uninstaller keeps crashing."Aug 08 19:18
DaemonFCWell, that sounds like fun.Aug 08 19:18
MinceRlolAug 08 19:18
MinceRthat sounds like a typical windows systemAug 08 19:18
DaemonFCWell, Vista at least.Aug 08 19:19
DaemonFCThat's the only one I had where it would crash constantly.Aug 08 19:19
DaemonFCOther than Windows 98.Aug 08 19:19
MinceRif it doesn't crash constantly, it drops the ball constantly in a different way :>Aug 08 19:20
DaemonFC8.1 hasn't been so badAug 08 19:21
MinceR8.1 hasn't been inflicted on me yet.Aug 08 19:22
MinceRi hope it will stay that way.Aug 08 19:22
DaemonFCWindows Update is somewhat lulzy.Aug 08 19:22
DaemonFCIt'll occasionally fail to install an update and not tell you.Aug 08 19:22
DaemonFCThere's a procedure for getting it to install the "spring update" when that one fails.Aug 08 19:22
DaemonFC"I have been using AVG for years, and it is about to go out the window. It keeps installing it own toolbar and repeatedly switches my default search to AVG safe search even though I changed the settings numerous times. My system performance has taken a hit, and it has new 'helpful' pop up feature to tell me things I didn't ask.Aug 08 19:23
DaemonFCAVG has crossed the line from Malware cleaner into actual Malware."Aug 08 19:23
MinceR:>Aug 08 19:24
DaemonFCI used to use AVG. They were actually quite good. No nags or disabled feature buttons that made it obvious you were using the free version.Aug 08 19:25
DaemonFCI guess they turned into a bunch of greedy cocks with awful software.Aug 08 19:25
MinceRthey adapted to the rest of the AV industry :>Aug 08 19:26
DaemonFCMinceR, Apparently, Microsoft Security Essentials and Windows Defender took a dive too.Aug 08 19:27
DaemonFCRemember when that was new and people were talking about how fast it was and how it detected and stopped almost all malware.Aug 08 19:28
DaemonFCNow it's failing to detect a bunch of malware that's a month old. :)Aug 08 19:28
MinceRremember when it decided that claria wasn't malware anymore when m$ considered acquiring themAug 08 19:28
MinceRit's about as trustworthy as anything else from m$.Aug 08 19:28

MinceRmaybe they're being paid by themAug 08 19:35
DaemonFCpossiblyAug 08 19:35
MinceRis it lower than IDG shilling m$?Aug 08 19:35
DaemonFCI figure that maybe some of the anti-Windows Defender/MSE stories might be coming from the paid antivirus companies.Aug 08 19:35
DaemonFCThey're all desperate to get your money, so they could just be paying off these "labs" to make MSE/WD fail the test.Aug 08 19:36
DaemonFCI thought about picking up a copy of McAfee Internet Security, MinceR.Aug 08 19:38
DaemonFCJust because you got it free after rebate, plus Newegg tossed in a $10 gift card.Aug 08 19:38
DaemonFCThen I saw people complaining that they sent in the rebate form and never got their money back.Aug 08 19:38
DaemonFCNot just one. A bunch of people.Aug 08 19:38
MinceRit's horribly crapAug 08 19:40
DaemonFCSo, they haven't improved since Intel bought them?Aug 08 19:41

MinceRi'm not sure if the version that's foisted on me is newer than thatAug 08 19:42
MinceRat least the new brand can be shortened to InSecurityAug 08 19:42
DaemonFCI'm just not having any of it. Their antivirus software is worse than actual malware.Aug 08 19:43
DaemonFCThere was so much bloatware on this computer before I formatted it and started over from a clean copy of the installer, that it was just fucking horrible.Aug 08 19:48
DaemonFCAcer really loads the machines up with a triple dose of crapware.Aug 08 19:49
DaemonFCIt was worse than the worst Dell crapware job I've ever seen, and there was McAfee there too.Aug 08 19:49
DaemonFCThey had all this Intel "management" crap popping up asking me to pay for theft protection.Aug 08 19:49
DaemonFCThen there was this animated coffee cup that kept popping up on my desktop for some reason, and popping up dialog balloons asking me to register it.Aug 08 19:50
DaemonFCAll kind of shit.Aug 08 19:50
MinceRlolAug 08 19:52
DaemonFCMinceR, I removed the Realtek audio driver bundle to get rid of their crapplet volume mixer, and it garbled my audio.Aug 08 19:55
MinceRughAug 08 19:56
DaemonFCIt's working fine now from the clean install I did from a retail ISO.Aug 08 19:56
DaemonFCThey had some kind of equalizer software called Creative something-or-other that loaded a splash screen every time you boot Windows.Aug 08 19:57

DaemonFCDell said that without crapware, the computers wouldn't be so affordable.Aug 08 20:00
DaemonFCLike $300 worth of components that retails for $600 affordable, like they have now....Aug 08 20:00
MinceRalso, with proper support, dHell computers wouldn't be so affordable, i'm guessingAug 08 20:01
DaemonFCThey make their highest profit margins on their cheapest computers.Aug 08 20:01
DaemonFCOnce you're down to Dell's lowest end stuff, you're talking about processors that RETAIL for $40 and motherboards that RETAIL for $50-60.Aug 08 20:02
DaemonFCOn their systems with dedicated graphics cards, they buy cheap AMD Radeon leftovers in packs of 100.Aug 08 20:03
DaemonFCLike the thing Acer crammed into this computer.Aug 08 20:03
DaemonFCThat card is going on ebay as soon as I get my R9 270X working.Aug 08 20:03
DaemonFCI probably won't get anything for it. 7770s are not worth a lot of money, and there are people there selling the same OEM cards in bulk.Aug 08 20:04
DaemonFCI wonder how they got 1,000 Dell-branded RadeonHD 7770s that were supposed to be installed into Dell computers, anyway.....Aug 08 20:04
DaemonFCOf course, with that card, we should be reading about how they broke into a Dell warehouse and put them all back.Aug 08 20:05
DaemonFCI'm just hoping I can make the new card fit. I thought 10.3" was massive (the Vapor X that I have coming), but then I noticed that they make one called a "Toxic" and that's over a foot long. Christ....Aug 08 20:06
DaemonFCIt's not a card that needs a foot long cooler on it.Aug 08 20:07
MinceR:>Aug 08 20:07
DaemonFCDo they make a case that you can put that in?Aug 08 20:07
MinceRthere are huge casesAug 08 20:07
MinceRmeant for servers and suchAug 08 20:07
DaemonFCOh, I'm sure they do, but damn.Aug 08 20:07
DaemonFC12.5"?Aug 08 20:07
MinceRdunnoAug 08 20:08
MinceRthat's the screen size of my tablet pcAug 08 20:08
DaemonFCMy computer would be all like "There's no way you're putting that in me!" and I'd be like "I guess I can see your point.".Aug 08 20:08
MinceR:>Aug 08 20:08
MinceRthat's what she said.Aug 08 20:08
DaemonFCmmhmAug 08 20:08
DaemonFCseriously. A 12.5" long graphics card.Aug 08 20:09
DaemonFCThe Dual-X is only 9.8", and that's really all it needs to be. The card isn't a turbo powered $500 card or anything.Aug 08 20:09
DaemonFCThe only reason I got the Vapor-X is because it went on sale much cheaper than the Dual-X and the bigger cooler is constructed better which allows for overclocking.Aug 08 20:10
DaemonFCIn fact, it comes overclocked, but there's not much you're going to goose out of it.Aug 08 20:10
DaemonFCThe overclocked model with the nicer cooler only benchmarks about 3% better than the base model.Aug 08 20:11
DaemonFCMinceR, That's actually what made the decision in favor of the card I have now. It went on one of those super sales and it was already overclocked, so it was up there with the 560 Ti on performance, but much much cheaper.Aug 08 20:12
MinceR:)Aug 08 20:12
DaemonFCNvidia sets the pricing on the Ti models so much higher, that it's cheaper for OEMs to overclock them, stick a better cooler on them, and then tell you that their overclocked model is the same performance as a Ti for much less.Aug 08 20:13
DaemonFCI mean, overclock the base model.Aug 08 20:13
DaemonFCIt's true. I haven't had any stability problems out of this card.Aug 08 20:14
DaemonFCNvidia doesn't get to dictate what OEMs tell the firmware performance profiles to default to as far as clock speeds go..Aug 08 20:16
DaemonFCThey just set the pricing on the chipset and then the vendors do whatever they want with them.Aug 08 20:16
DaemonFCAMD does much the same thing. So, there's a huge difference between the same Radeon model from different vendors, and it can be maddening trying to figure it out.Aug 08 20:17
DaemonFCThey're all off a bit from AMD's official specification. :PAug 08 20:17
DaemonFCI wish that AMD and Nvidia would just direct market their own cards and stop the madness. Aug 08 20:18

DaemonFCJ. R. Bob Dobbs (formerly ZOMG Pink Ponies) says:Aug 03 01:05
DaemonFChttp://www.welivesecurity.com/2014/03/21/10-years-of-mac-os-x-malware/Aug 03 01:05
DaemonFCEven their malware is pretty. LOLAug 03 01:05
DaemonFCThis isn't a complete list. I've seen some rather interesting Mac malware. There are some huge-ish Mac botnets out there, mostly just coming from one or two highly pirated pieces of software. (Microsoft Office for Mac and Adobe Photoshop.).Aug 03 01:05
DaemonFCI wonder why people even use Photoshop sometimes. Obviously, 95% of the people you see with it don't need it. You really have to wonder how they got Adobe Photoshop full edition and Windows Ultimate on a Dell Inspiron. I don't think they come with those.... Well, no, you don't have to wonder how they got it. They got it under the terms of the PBPL, of course. ;)Aug 03 01:05
-TechrightsBot-tr/#techrights-www.welivesecurity.com | 10 years of Mac OS X malware [ http://ur1.ca/hw9ls ]Aug 03 01:05
DaemonFCIt's nice to see some ***hole on a Mac will happily pay over a thousand dollars for a toothless computer, and then try to balance the ledger by stealing software.Aug 03 01:05
DaemonFCThe Macs aren't particularly useful individually, for mining bitcoins, but you've got a bunch of systems that are sitting ducks and have some processing power shared between them, so it's obvious why the malware problem is there.Aug 03 01:05
DaemonFCMaybe someone can answer this for me since I haven't upgraded RAM in a very long time.Aug 03 01:22
DaemonFCI have three 4 GB DDR3-1600 modules in my motherboard, 1.5v, 11-11-11-30.Aug 03 01:22
DaemonFCI found a 4 GB module of another brand on Newegg that says 4 GB DDR3-1600, 1.5v, 11-11-11-28.Aug 03 01:23
DaemonFCWill it work? Aug 03 01:23
DaemonFCDoesn't seem to be a huge difference.Aug 03 01:25
DaemonFCI know I've gotten away with mixing and matching RAM before on older DDR RAM, but I am not really up to speed on what's changed.Aug 03 01:26

DaemonFCI don't know if it'll work properly, but if it's only gonna be a few bucks, I could take the chance.Aug 03 02:42
DaemonFCI'm probably gonna take the closest RAM I can find. I can't find an exact match for the modules that are in there, but ADATA and Team seem to have RAM that is very close.Aug 03 03:27
DaemonFCObviously I want to maximize the chances that it works. :PAug 03 03:28

prometeoHi Roy I am woritting to you because of your article: The European Patent Office is Breaking the Law Regarding Software Patents, German Parliament Finally ComplainsAug 03 20:03
prometeoIn addition to that there are some other issues in the EPO working that worries to me.Aug 03 20:04
prometeoFirst. I wonder if EPO is an Organization that applies Equal Opportutinties Jobs or make unethical discriminations among candidates. I am talking because of my own experienceAug 03 20:05
prometeoSencond if they have t be so rude and unpolite. They don't answer jobs applications. Just in the case you want a visit with Human RElationships department. the guard and the main entrance tells you that he doesn't know thwere is the HHRR.Aug 03 20:07
prometeoThird. It is very sad for an European citicenz to see how EU institutions are surrendering to USA companies interestAug 03 20:08
prometeoI say so mainly because the new CPC patent classification, has elicted the A61P relavite to therapeutic drug activity. I can not think what is the reasonAug 03 20:09

DaemonFCThe iPhone only comes with 1 gig of RAM too.Aug 04 00:36
DaemonFCAll in all, the iPhone is to smartphones as Internet Explorer 6 was to web browsers. Aug 04 00:36
DaemonFCThe reason millions of people started bailing is because Android pulled ahead years ago, and now Apple is going around trying to copy as many Android features as they can, but some of the iPhone's most crippling and aggravating limitations are going to survive at least into iPhone 6 and iOS 8. It just won't be as painful. But for that price, do you really want a painful and limited phone? Should people be paying $600-850 on a phone and then Aug 04 00:36
DaemonFCmaking compromises with things like screen resolutions? At that price, they should expect quad HD now. The LG G3 really set a new bar for what a phone should be. Aug 04 00:36

DaemonFCMinceR, I'm planning to swap out the Geforce GTX 560 with something that has a little more punch, but I don't know exactly how far I can go.Aug 05 15:10
DaemonFCThe power supply seems to have some kind of proprietary hookup to the main board.Aug 05 15:10
DaemonFCThe good news is that it seems pretty well-designed other than that. 500 watt, 3 12 volt rails, 80 plus gold certification, and two 6 pin adapters.Aug 05 15:11
DaemonFCI got the computer at a pretty good price. I figured there'd be something dodgy about it. Stupid proprietary power supplies.Aug 05 15:11
DaemonFCI guess it can't be worse than what I've seen Dell and HP do.Aug 05 15:12
DaemonFC"Oh, here's a 280 watt power supply with Engrish on it, and no connectors for a graphics card. Don't worry though, you won't need any since there's no port for one either." :DAug 05 15:12

DaemonFCI just don't think that the paid antivirus software is much better than Windows Defender.Aug 05 17:41
DaemonFCWhen Microsoft announced Security Essentials, the stock for Symantec and McAfee took a major hit the next day.Aug 05 17:42
DaemonFCMost people who buy a new PC don't really know that it comes with antivirus software now, because OEMs disable it when they shove in the trialware.Aug 05 17:43
DaemonFCThen people don't register the trialware, and it expires, and doesn't turn Defender back on. :PAug 05 17:43
DaemonFCI actually have a friend that that happened to.Aug 05 17:44

DaemonFCabeNd-org, A Core i7 4770 mixed in with a rebadged RadeonHD 7770 Ghz Edition calling itself a "8760 OEM". LOLAug 05 17:59
DaemonFCThat's not a terrible card, but what the hell is it doing in a machine with a Core i7? :PAug 05 18:00
DaemonFCThe Core i7 should probably at least be paired with a 7870.Aug 05 18:00
DaemonFCI guess I did OK though. I bought it knowing about that. The first thing I did was swap it out for the Geforce GTX 560 SC I already owned. :)Aug 05 18:01
abeNd-organ actual card or just onboard video?Aug 05 18:01
DaemonFCactual cardAug 05 18:01
DaemonFCThe 7770 can run some decent games at good speed on high graphics modeAug 05 18:01
abeNd-orgmust have been cheapest thing they had to throw in that day then, guessing this is a consumer grade machine & not business class?Aug 05 18:02
DaemonFCThe GTX 560 is a step up though. It's closer to a RadeonHD 6870 or so.Aug 05 18:02
abeNd-orgi was looking at the evga 750Ti superclocked, inexpensive & supposed to be a really good card for the priceAug 05 18:02
DaemonFCoh, I saw one on Newegg this morning.Aug 05 18:02
DaemonFCemail deals with a rebate attached.Aug 05 18:02
DaemonFCIt's not as powerful as my GTX 560, but it doesn't use a lot of power.Aug 05 18:03
DaemonFCFor a card that you don't have to plug into the power supply, the 750 Ti is pretty good.Aug 05 18:03
DaemonFCThe only downside to my GTX 560 vs the 7770 ("8760") is that the firmware on the Geforce doesn't work without BIOS interfaces.Aug 05 18:04
*abeNd-org1 (~kklenke@rrcs-50-84-221-254.sw.biz.rr.com) has joined #techrightsAug 05 18:04
DaemonFCSo you have to use the CSM on the uEFI firmware to bring up the Geforce. :PAug 05 18:04
DaemonFCAnd you have to do it before you swap the card or you'll just get a blank screen. :DAug 05 18:05
DaemonFCand it's not secure boot compatible, of courseAug 05 18:05
DaemonFChehAug 05 18:05
DaemonFCSo if you turn secure boot off and tell your uEFI to pretend it's a BIOS to the card, then the card will come upAug 05 18:06
abeNd-org1i know they have the 1 & 2 gig version, was hoping to get 2 gig, if i can find any reason to have the extra memory...considering i dont actually game, or have the time. Aug 05 18:06
*abeNd-org has quit (Ping timeout: 250 seconds)Aug 05 18:06
DaemonFCEVGA never provided a firmware update, but you know how these companies are. "We haven't sold those in two years, so fuck you.".Aug 05 18:06
DaemonFCWhy would you get a 2 GB?Aug 05 18:06
DaemonFCThat's another thing I don't understand. The "8760 OEM" is a little different than the 7770 Ghz Edition. The 7770 had 1 GB, and the "8760" has 2.Aug 05 18:07
DaemonFCIt doesn't really make any difference.Aug 05 18:07
abeNd-org1since i wouldnt be buying another video card for yrs, getting the most memory i could, supposedly some of the newer games can take advantage of crazy amounts of video memoryAug 05 18:07
DaemonFCIf you ever go to run a game that needs more than a GB of vram, the card would fall over and die under that load anyway.Aug 05 18:08
DaemonFCSo, save your money unless you just plan on running three desktops or want to use crazy high resolutions or something.Aug 05 18:08
DaemonFC1920 x 1080 is no problem on a 1 GB card.Aug 05 18:08
abeNd-org1thats what they said back when people ran the OAK256 ;)Aug 05 18:08
DaemonFCMy GTX 560 has 1 GB. I still put it in instead of the one with 2.Aug 05 18:09
abeNd-org1at home i run 3 monitors, but i dont think any of the games i would play (diablo3/starcraft, not WoW if i ever had the time, or the games :)) take advantage of multimonitorAug 05 18:10
DaemonFCI just don't believe it matters. There's no use trying to futureproof this stuff. After three or four years, it's done.Aug 05 18:10
abeNd-org1i remember back in the days some racing games & quake based ones did, Alice was awesome on triple monitorAug 05 18:10
abeNd-org1yea, the 1gig version is about $30 less, i could use that to buy a game, now if only i had timeAug 05 18:11
DaemonFCWell, the 750 Ti would run a video game like a slideshow anyway if you tried cranking everything up.Aug 05 18:11
DaemonFCSo, what good is 2 GB of RAM?Aug 05 18:11
DaemonFCyeah, the extra $30 isn't worth it. Not on that card.Aug 05 18:12
DaemonFCLots of RAM makes no sense on low/mid grade cards.Aug 05 18:12
abeNd-org1I can possibly justify ~100 USD on a card, so the 1GB superclocked Ti750 evga would just about fit the bill, no way i can justify anything more expensiveAug 05 18:13
DaemonFCOn top of the line ones it might, if you're running really demanding stuff on maximum settings at high res.Aug 05 18:13
DaemonFCGet a used card off of ebay.Aug 05 18:13
abeNd-org1it would still be far & above the onboard intel 4000 i have nowAug 05 18:13
DaemonFCThe 7870s only seem to run about $70-80 by the time the auctions are done.Aug 05 18:13
DaemonFCThey do need two 6 pins though.Aug 05 18:14
abeNd-org1how good is the 7870 compared to the 750Ti? i havent paid much attention to ATIAug 05 18:14
DaemonFCBut they would pulverize that 750 Ti.Aug 05 18:14
DaemonFCLike, uhh, about four times faster.Aug 05 18:14
DaemonFCGive or take. :)Aug 05 18:14
abeNd-org1the other reason i was going for the 750Ti is power requirements, wife wont approve of buying a replacement power supplyAug 05 18:14
abeNd-org1those 750 Ti work with 300watt PSUAug 05 18:14
DaemonFCMaybe not four, but close.Aug 05 18:14
abeNd-org1& this was a free gateway 4860DX, so wife doesnt want me really spending $ on itAug 05 18:15
DaemonFChmmmAug 05 18:15
DaemonFCI've got a 4670 and a 5670 that I'm not really doing too much with.Aug 05 18:15
abeNd-org1core i5, 12gb ram 1tb wdc black, so not a bad box for free, even though it moosAug 05 18:15
DaemonFCThe 5670 isn't a fantastic card, but it's still better than integrated video, and it doesn't need to plug into the power supply.Aug 05 18:16
DaemonFCSupports DirectX 11 and OpenGL 4.4.Aug 05 18:16
abeNd-org1yea, that & cost were the reasons i was looking at the 750TiAug 05 18:16
DaemonFCI think the 750 Ti only uses like 55 watts at maximum load.Aug 05 18:17
DaemonFCSo, you're well under the limit of the port itself, which is 75 watts.Aug 05 18:17
abeNd-org1yep, i dont have the budget approval for a 900W PSU just for a $300+ video card :)Aug 05 18:18
DaemonFCWell, you could probably get away with a 750 Ti on that psu. I wouldn't try to run anything more.Aug 05 18:18
abeNd-org1hrm, newegg only has the 2GB varietyAug 05 18:18
DaemonFCThe newer Core series processors and DDR3 RAM use less power than ever, so you could probably get close to the 75 watt port limit without risking your psu.Aug 05 18:18
abeNd-org1yea, the amazon reviews have people running 300watt PSU with that card & actually use it for gaming, they are happy enoughAug 05 18:18
DaemonFCMy Core i7 4770 only uses 68 watts at full load.Aug 05 18:19
abeNd-org1i dont plan on playing crysis or anything like thatAug 05 18:19
DaemonFCThe Phenom II X4 that it replaced was three times slower and used 125 watts max.Aug 05 18:19
DaemonFC:)Aug 05 18:19
abeNd-org1$125 vs $154 for 1GB vs 2GBAug 05 18:20
DaemonFCwell, if you can get the 2 GB version for not much more after factoring in the rebate, then go for it.Aug 05 18:20
DaemonFCI'd say don't pay more than $10 more, or you're being robbed. It's just not likely to be useful.Aug 05 18:20
DaemonFCReally, video games are pretty poorly optimized, for the most part.Aug 05 18:21
abeNd-org1yea, i doubt diablo3/starcraft2/older games could use more than 1GB ramAug 05 18:21
DaemonFCSome developers, like Bethesda, just rush out broken unoptimized shit.Aug 05 18:21
DaemonFCAnd then they make their money and pretty much abandon it.Aug 05 18:22

DaemonFCYeah, it looks like the R9 270X is a solid choice.Aug 06 01:11
DaemonFCI'm glad I didn't peel off that "Powered by Radeon" sticker. :)Aug 06 01:11
DaemonFCI chatted Newegg about their 10% off promo not working on a graphics card I wanted, and they said that it was because of free video games, but that they'd credit my card $19 and I can keep the free games!Aug 06 01:13
msbComcast just sent me an email saying they've increased my network speed.  So I reset the modem, router, and stopped and restarted the network in etc/init.dAug 06 01:37
msbI tried Comcast's speed test and it said it would start in 6,000 seconds, and began counting down.Aug 06 01:38
msbClever!  But another speed test website did show an increase to 2.47 MB/sec, which is definitely faster.Aug 06 01:39
msbOf course I'm not getting any faster from the server I'm really interested in, but what the hey, it's prime time here.Aug 06 01:43
DaemonFCI ended up buying the R9 270 instead of the 270X.Aug 06 02:03
DaemonFCThe 270X is only 3% faster, but the 270 was on sale for about 20% less today with free shipping.Aug 06 02:04
DaemonFCAnd it only uses 150 watts instead of 180.Aug 06 02:04
DaemonFCSo the R9 270 is going to be almost as fast as the Geforce GTX 660 Ti for $100 less.Aug 06 02:05
DaemonFCScore!Aug 06 02:05
DaemonFCmsb, I changed the order. The Sapphire Vapor X R9 270X was in their Daily Deal for $10 more.Aug 06 02:34

DaemonFCOh, I'm sure that with some work, I could get it in. Giggidy! Aug 06 16:22
DaemonFCI don't really want to take my drive bay out, but I guess that since my hard drive is using the front bay anyway, it is an option.Aug 06 16:23

-TechrightsBot-tr/#techrights-en.wikipedia.org | VESA Local Bus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia [ http://ur1.ca/hx6zb ]Aug 06 16:23
DaemonFCThe only part where Sapphire seems to have cut you a break with the Vapor-X R9 270X is that the six pin power cables plug into the side. So it's a question of whether I have 2" left behind my current card to work with without taking the drive bay out.Aug 06 16:24
DaemonFCThat card is bigger than it looked. Tiger Direct doesn't give you the specs, so I figured it would be about the same as what I've got.Aug 06 16:24

DaemonFCMy Geforce is 4.38" wide and the Vapor-X R9 270X is 4.03, so I know it will fit that way.Aug 06 16:26
DaemonFCMy case has a thing that props up against the graphics card. I was hoping I wouldn't have to remove that too. :PAug 06 16:27
DaemonFCI was thinking about editing my order again to go back to the R9 270, but that card is still 9" and the power cables plus into the back.Aug 06 16:28
DaemonFCI'm about 98% certain that I can get the Vapor X card in there without taking the drive bay out, but it's going to be....very close.Aug 06 16:29
DaemonFCThis case leaves me with no margin of error.Aug 06 16:29
DaemonFCIt's going to be pretty ugly.Aug 06 16:30

DaemonFCabeNd-org, The XFX Double D was half an inch shorter, but cost $70 more. I'd rather do some work with the hard drive cage than pay another $70 for what's basically the same card.Aug 06 16:48
DaemonFCI've had XFX cards before, and they do a good job, but they're a little steep. Still, it does kind of piss me off that Sapphire couldn't find a way to get their card down by half a smegging inch. :PAug 06 16:49
DaemonFCabeNd-org, The people who made the cases for the VLB cards would have probably anticipated you using one though. :PAug 06 16:50
abeNd-orgyes, in fact there were guides/mounts on the edge side so it wouldn't bowAug 06 16:52
DaemonFCI'd run into the same space problem with the Dual-X configuration too because it's still nearly 10" and the six pin ports are on the back. :PAug 06 16:54

DaemonFCI'm probably going to email Sapphire after I get this card situation sorted out and ask them why their Vapor-X cooler is so long when the competition's is half an inch shorter. Aug 06 18:41
DaemonFCA half an inch doesn't sound like much, but I'd imagine it's the difference between the card fitting and an angry pissed off customer in a lot of cases. I think that card makers should really work to make sure that they don't go over the 10" mark. 9.9" should probably be considered a limit, because it will usually fit at 9.9 with an acceptable amount of room left over.Aug 06 18:41
DaemonFCThen again, I've also ran into these really long cards that have the 6 pin ports at the back, so if that's what they're doing, then 9.5" should really be considered a limit, because you have to get the damned thing plugged in. If you put it on the sides, you're giving your customer about another 0.4" of clearance at the back.Aug 06 18:41
DaemonFCabeNd-org, Yeah. I'm sure I can fit the card. I'm most likely going to have to take the drive cage out. Damn them.Aug 06 20:02
DaemonFCAll this over less than a fifth of an inch.Aug 06 20:03

DaemonFCDon't order from Tiger Direct.Aug 06 21:31
DaemonFCHoly fucking jumping shitballs. If I knew what their customer support was like, I would have paid the extra $20 at newegg.Aug 06 21:32
DaemonFCActually more. :PAug 06 21:32
DaemonFCNewegg had the graphics card I wanted for $189.99, but they charge 7% state sales tax.Aug 06 21:33
DaemonFCSo it would have worked out to $203.29.Aug 06 21:33
DaemonFCI got the same card on Tiger Direct for $169.99 with no tax, and it comes with a $10 mail in rebate form to send to Sapphire.Aug 06 21:33
DaemonFCSo, six weeks later, I'll get $10 of that back.Aug 06 21:34

DaemonFCMinceR, I hate sales tax.Aug 06 21:50
MinceRis that VAT?Aug 06 21:50
DaemonFCI hate taxes period. The state says it knows how to spend my money better than I do, and when they raise my taxes, they offset the increased revenue immediately, by giving the rich another tax break.Aug 06 21:50
DaemonFCNot the same, really.Aug 06 21:50
DaemonFCVAT doesn't happen here, at least not that I'm aware of.Aug 06 21:51
DaemonFCWith VAT, each step of the manufacturing process is taxed, so the price of the tax is built into the finished goods.Aug 06 21:51
DaemonFCWith a sales tax, the finished good is taxed based on the price paid for the good.Aug 06 21:51
DaemonFCThe VAT is harder to escape because in the US, each state is responsible for collecting their own sales tax, but if you buy from a company that has no physical presence in your state, then they won't collect the tax, and your state can't make them do it.Aug 06 21:52
*abeNd-org has quit (Quit: Leaving.)Aug 06 21:52
MinceRicAug 06 21:52
DaemonFCSo you can escape the sales tax by buying from a merchant that has no physical presence in your state.Aug 06 21:53
DaemonFCAmazon and Newegg have warehouses in Indiana. Tiger Direct contracts their warehousing out to another company.Aug 06 21:53
DaemonFCSo although there's a warehouse in Indiana, Tiger Direct doesn't legally have a presence here.Aug 06 21:53
DaemonFCThe end result is that they're immediately 7% cheaper than Newegg or Amazon on an item that is the same price at both places.Aug 06 21:54
DaemonFCSo, if you're looking to save money, you just do business with someone that isn't bound to collect the tax. You're supposed to report it on an Indiana tax form and pay it yourself, but nobody does.Aug 06 21:54
DaemonFCThe state usually never goes after anyone for it because it would have to take them to court and prove they didn't pay $10 in tax. :PAug 06 21:56
DaemonFCThey don't have the budget to go through millions of online orders and sue people to get a few dollars out of each one.Aug 06 21:56
DaemonFCAfter I get my Vapor X card hooked up and running, I'm going to throw that "RadeonHD 8760 OEM" (Radeon HD 7770 Ghz Edition with extra RAM) on ebay and see if I can get some money for it.Aug 06 21:58
DaemonFCIt's easily a $80-90 card, new.Aug 06 21:58
DaemonFCIf I can get $60 out of it, I'll be happy.Aug 06 21:58

DaemonFCHousing prices. Only people like me have to worry about housing prices and loans and all that. Between the government and the catholic church, you can get any house you want in Fort Wayne, as long as you're not an American.Aug 08 10:59
DaemonFCThe city went through and spent millions of dollars renovating a bunch of houses, and then they started renting them out to people with low incomes with a thing that said they own the home after so many years. So, they move in and enjoy a nice low house payment while they're tearing the shit out of the house again.Aug 08 11:01
DaemonFCroy, But, housing prices went up here, at least, because people expected housing prices to go up, and the loan money was cheap for a while to ensnare people.Aug 08 11:04
DaemonFCSo, you had a house that was costing very little on interest, or you could get a low interest mortgage on your existing house and blow all the money on your lifestyle inflation, and then the ARM trap was sprung, and everyone went underwater and started losing their houses.Aug 08 11:05

DaemonFCThat's the only one I had where it would crash constantly.Aug 08 18:21
DaemonFCOther than Windows 98.Aug 08 18:21
MinceRif it doesn't crash constantly, it drops the ball constantly in a different way :>Aug 08 18:23
DaemonFC8.1 hasn't been so badAug 08 18:24
MinceR8.1 hasn't been inflicted on me yet.Aug 08 18:24
MinceRi hope it will stay that way.Aug 08 18:24
DaemonFCWindows Update is somewhat lulzy.Aug 08 18:24
DaemonFCIt'll occasionally fail to install an update and not tell you.Aug 08 18:25
DaemonFCThere's a procedure for getting it to install the "spring update" when that one fails.Aug 08 18:25
DaemonFC"I have been using AVG for years, and it is about to go out the window. It keeps installing it own toolbar and repeatedly switches my default search to AVG safe search even though I changed the settings numerous times. My system performance has taken a hit, and it has new 'helpful' pop up feature to tell me things I didn't ask.Aug 08 18:26
DaemonFCAVG has crossed the line from Malware cleaner into actual Malware."Aug 08 18:26
MinceR:>Aug 08 18:26
DaemonFCI used to use AVG. They were actually quite good. No nags or disabled feature buttons that made it obvious you were using the free version.Aug 08 18:27
DaemonFCI guess they turned into a bunch of greedy cocks with awful software.Aug 08 18:27
MinceRthey adapted to the rest of the AV industry :>Aug 08 18:28
DaemonFCMinceR, Apparently, Microsoft Security Essentials and Windows Defender took a dive too.Aug 08 18:30
DaemonFCRemember when that was new and people were talking about how fast it was and how it detected and stopped almost all malware.Aug 08 18:30
DaemonFCNow it's failing to detect a bunch of malware that's a month old. :)Aug 08 18:30
MinceRremember when it decided that claria wasn't malware anymore when m$ considered acquiring themAug 08 18:31
MinceRit's about as trustworthy as anything else from m$.Aug 08 18:31

DaemonFCyeahAug 08 18:33

DaemonFCThat has to be a new low.Aug 08 18:37
MinceRmaybe they're being paid by themAug 08 18:37
DaemonFCpossiblyAug 08 18:37
MinceRis it lower than IDG shilling m$?Aug 08 18:37
DaemonFCI figure that maybe some of the anti-Windows Defender/MSE stories might be coming from the paid antivirus companies.Aug 08 18:38
DaemonFCThey're all desperate to get your money, so they could just be paying off these "labs" to make MSE/WD fail the test.Aug 08 18:39
DaemonFCI thought about picking up a copy of McAfee Internet Security, MinceR.Aug 08 18:40
DaemonFCJust because you got it free after rebate, plus Newegg tossed in a $10 gift card.Aug 08 18:40
DaemonFCThen I saw people complaining that they sent in the rebate form and never got their money back.Aug 08 18:40
DaemonFCNot just one. A bunch of people.Aug 08 18:41
MinceRit's horribly crapAug 08 18:43
DaemonFCSo, they haven't improved since Intel bought them?Aug 08 18:43

MinceRi'm not sure if the version that's foisted on me is newer than thatAug 08 18:44
MinceRat least the new brand can be shortened to InSecurityAug 08 18:44
DaemonFCI'm just not having any of it. Their antivirus software is worse than actual malware.Aug 08 18:45
DaemonFCThere was so much bloatware on this computer before I formatted it and started over from a clean copy of the installer, that it was just fucking horrible.Aug 08 18:51
DaemonFCAcer really loads the machines up with a triple dose of crapware.Aug 08 18:51
DaemonFCIt was worse than the worst Dell crapware job I've ever seen, and there was McAfee there too.Aug 08 18:51
DaemonFCThey had all this Intel "management" crap popping up asking me to pay for theft protection.Aug 08 18:52
DaemonFCThen there was this animated coffee cup that kept popping up on my desktop for some reason, and popping up dialog balloons asking me to register it.Aug 08 18:52
DaemonFCAll kind of shit.Aug 08 18:52
MinceRlolAug 08 18:54
DaemonFCMinceR, I removed the Realtek audio driver bundle to get rid of their crapplet volume mixer, and it garbled my audio.Aug 08 18:58
MinceRughAug 08 18:58
DaemonFCIt's working fine now from the clean install I did from a retail ISO.Aug 08 18:58
DaemonFCThey had some kind of equalizer software called Creative something-or-other that loaded a splash screen every time you boot Windows.Aug 08 18:59

DaemonFCDell said that without crapware, the computers wouldn't be so affordable.Aug 08 19:02
DaemonFCLike $300 worth of components that retails for $600 affordable, like they have now....Aug 08 19:03
MinceRalso, with proper support, dHell computers wouldn't be so affordable, i'm guessingAug 08 19:03
DaemonFCThey make their highest profit margins on their cheapest computers.Aug 08 19:04
DaemonFCOnce you're down to Dell's lowest end stuff, you're talking about processors that RETAIL for $40 and motherboards that RETAIL for $50-60.Aug 08 19:05
DaemonFCOn their systems with dedicated graphics cards, they buy cheap AMD Radeon leftovers in packs of 100.Aug 08 19:05
DaemonFCLike the thing Acer crammed into this computer.Aug 08 19:05
DaemonFCThat card is going on ebay as soon as I get my R9 270X working.Aug 08 19:06
DaemonFCI probably won't get anything for it. 7770s are not worth a lot of money, and there are people there selling the same OEM cards in bulk.Aug 08 19:06
DaemonFCI wonder how they got 1,000 Dell-branded RadeonHD 7770s that were supposed to be installed into Dell computers, anyway.....Aug 08 19:07
DaemonFCOf course, with that card, we should be reading about how they broke into a Dell warehouse and put them all back.Aug 08 19:08
DaemonFCI'm just hoping I can make the new card fit. I thought 10.3" was massive (the Vapor X that I have coming), but then I noticed that they make one called a "Toxic" and that's over a foot long. Christ....Aug 08 19:09
DaemonFCIt's not a card that needs a foot long cooler on it.Aug 08 19:09
MinceR:>Aug 08 19:09
DaemonFCDo they make a case that you can put that in?Aug 08 19:10
MinceRthere are huge casesAug 08 19:10
MinceRmeant for servers and suchAug 08 19:10
DaemonFCOh, I'm sure they do, but damn.Aug 08 19:10
DaemonFC12.5"?Aug 08 19:10
MinceRdunnoAug 08 19:10
MinceRthat's the screen size of my tablet pcAug 08 19:10
DaemonFCMy computer would be all like "There's no way you're putting that in me!" and I'd be like "I guess I can see your point.".Aug 08 19:10
MinceR:>Aug 08 19:10
MinceRthat's what she said.Aug 08 19:11
DaemonFCmmhmAug 08 19:11
DaemonFCseriously. A 12.5" long graphics card.Aug 08 19:11
DaemonFCThe Dual-X is only 9.8", and that's really all it needs to be. The card isn't a turbo powered $500 card or anything.Aug 08 19:12
DaemonFCThe only reason I got the Vapor-X is because it went on sale much cheaper than the Dual-X and the bigger cooler is constructed better which allows for overclocking.Aug 08 19:12
DaemonFCIn fact, it comes overclocked, but there's not much you're going to goose out of it.Aug 08 19:13
DaemonFCThe overclocked model with the nicer cooler only benchmarks about 3% better than the base model.Aug 08 19:13
DaemonFCMinceR, That's actually what made the decision in favor of the card I have now. It went on one of those super sales and it was already overclocked, so it was up there with the 560 Ti on performance, but much much cheaper.Aug 08 19:14
MinceR:)Aug 08 19:15
DaemonFCNvidia sets the pricing on the Ti models so much higher, that it's cheaper for OEMs to overclock them, stick a better cooler on them, and then tell you that their overclocked model is the same performance as a Ti for much less.Aug 08 19:15
DaemonFCI mean, overclock the base model.Aug 08 19:16
DaemonFCIt's true. I haven't had any stability problems out of this card.Aug 08 19:16
DaemonFCNvidia doesn't get to dictate what OEMs tell the firmware performance profiles to default to as far as clock speeds go..Aug 08 19:18
DaemonFCThey just set the pricing on the chipset and then the vendors do whatever they want with them.Aug 08 19:18
DaemonFCAMD does much the same thing. So, there's a huge difference between the same Radeon model from different vendors, and it can be maddening trying to figure it out.Aug 08 19:19
DaemonFCThey're all off a bit from AMD's official specification. :PAug 08 19:20
DaemonFCI wish that AMD and Nvidia would just direct market their own cards and stop the madness. Aug 08 19:20

prometeoHi Roy I am woritting to you because of your article: The European Patent Office is Breaking the Law Regarding Software Patents, German Parliament Finally ComplainsAug 03 16:01
prometeoIn addition to that there are some other issues in the EPO working that worries to me.Aug 03 16:02
prometeoFirst. I wonder if EPO is an Organization that applies Equal Opportutinties Jobs or make unethical discriminations among candidates. I am talking because of my own experienceAug 03 16:03
prometeoSencond if they have t be so rude and unpolite. They don't answer jobs applications. Just in the case you want a visit with Human RElationships department. the guard and the main entrance tells you that he doesn't know thwere is the HHRR.Aug 03 16:05
prometeoThird. It is very sad for an European citicenz to see how EU institutions are surrendering to USA companies interestAug 03 16:06
prometeoI say so mainly because the new CPC patent classification, has elicted the A61P relavite to therapeutic drug activity. I can not think what is the reasonAug 03 16:07

DaemonFCThe iPhone only comes with 1 gig of RAM too.Aug 03 20:34
DaemonFCAll in all, the iPhone is to smartphones as Internet Explorer 6 was to web browsers. Aug 03 20:34
DaemonFCThe reason millions of people started bailing is because Android pulled ahead years ago, and now Apple is going around trying to copy as many Android features as they can, but some of the iPhone's most crippling and aggravating limitations are going to survive at least into iPhone 6 and iOS 8. It just won't be as painful. But for that price, do you really want a painful and limited phone? Should people be paying $600-850 on a phone and then Aug 03 20:34

DaemonFCWhen Microsoft announced Security Essentials, the stock for Symantec and McAfee took a major hit the next day.Aug 05 13:40
DaemonFCMost people who buy a new PC don't really know that it comes with antivirus software now, because OEMs disable it when they shove in the trialware.Aug 05 13:40

DaemonFCabeNd-org, A Core i7 4770 mixed in with a rebadged RadeonHD 7770 Ghz Edition calling itself a "8760 OEM". LOLAug 05 13:57
DaemonFCThat's not a terrible card, but what the hell is it doing in a machine with a Core i7? :PAug 05 13:58
DaemonFCThe Core i7 should probably at least be paired with a 7870.Aug 05 13:58
DaemonFCI guess I did OK though. I bought it knowing about that. The first thing I did was swap it out for the Geforce GTX 560 SC I already owned. :)Aug 05 13:59
abeNd-organ actual card or just onboard video?Aug 05 13:59
DaemonFCactual cardAug 05 13:59
DaemonFCThe 7770 can run some decent games at good speed on high graphics modeAug 05 13:59
abeNd-orgmust have been cheapest thing they had to throw in that day then, guessing this is a consumer grade machine & not business class?Aug 05 13:59
DaemonFCThe GTX 560 is a step up though. It's closer to a RadeonHD 6870 or so.Aug 05 14:00
abeNd-orgi was looking at the evga 750Ti superclocked, inexpensive & supposed to be a really good card for the priceAug 05 14:00
DaemonFCoh, I saw one on Newegg this morning.Aug 05 14:00
DaemonFCemail deals with a rebate attached.Aug 05 14:00
DaemonFCIt's not as powerful as my GTX 560, but it doesn't use a lot of power.Aug 05 14:00
DaemonFCFor a card that you don't have to plug into the power supply, the 750 Ti is pretty good.Aug 05 14:01
DaemonFCThe only downside to my GTX 560 vs the 7770 ("8760") is that the firmware on the Geforce doesn't work without BIOS interfaces.Aug 05 14:02
-->abeNd-org1 (~kklenke@rrcs-50-84-221-254.sw.biz.rr.com) has joined #techrightsAug 05 14:02
DaemonFCSo you have to use the CSM on the uEFI firmware to bring up the Geforce. :PAug 05 14:02
DaemonFCAnd you have to do it before you swap the card or you'll just get a blank screen. :DAug 05 14:02
DaemonFCand it's not secure boot compatible, of courseAug 05 14:03
DaemonFChehAug 05 14:03
DaemonFCSo if you turn secure boot off and tell your uEFI to pretend it's a BIOS to the card, then the card will come upAug 05 14:04
abeNd-org1i know they have the 1 & 2 gig version, was hoping to get 2 gig, if i can find any reason to have the extra memory...considering i dont actually game, or have the time. Aug 05 14:04
<--abeNd-org has quit (Ping timeout: 250 seconds)Aug 05 14:04
DaemonFCEVGA never provided a firmware update, but you know how these companies are. "We haven't sold those in two years, so fuck you.".Aug 05 14:04
DaemonFCWhy would you get a 2 GB?Aug 05 14:04
DaemonFCThat's another thing I don't understand. The "8760 OEM" is a little different than the 7770 Ghz Edition. The 7770 had 1 GB, and the "8760" has 2.Aug 05 14:05
DaemonFCIt doesn't really make any difference.Aug 05 14:05
abeNd-org1since i wouldnt be buying another video card for yrs, getting the most memory i could, supposedly some of the newer games can take advantage of crazy amounts of video memoryAug 05 14:05
DaemonFCIf you ever go to run a game that needs more than a GB of vram, the card would fall over and die under that load anyway.Aug 05 14:06
DaemonFCSo, save your money unless you just plan on running three desktops or want to use crazy high resolutions or something.Aug 05 14:06
DaemonFC1920 x 1080 is no problem on a 1 GB card.Aug 05 14:06
abeNd-org1thats what they said back when people ran the OAK256 ;)Aug 05 14:06
DaemonFCMy GTX 560 has 1 GB. I still put it in instead of the one with 2.Aug 05 14:07
abeNd-org1at home i run 3 monitors, but i dont think any of the games i would play (diablo3/starcraft, not WoW if i ever had the time, or the games :)) take advantage of multimonitorAug 05 14:08
DaemonFCI just don't believe it matters. There's no use trying to futureproof this stuff. After three or four years, it's done.Aug 05 14:08
abeNd-org1i remember back in the days some racing games & quake based ones did, Alice was awesome on triple monitorAug 05 14:08
abeNd-org1yea, the 1gig version is about $30 less, i could use that to buy a game, now if only i had timeAug 05 14:09
DaemonFCWell, the 750 Ti would run a video game like a slideshow anyway if you tried cranking everything up.Aug 05 14:09
DaemonFCSo, what good is 2 GB of RAM?Aug 05 14:09
DaemonFCyeah, the extra $30 isn't worth it. Not on that card.Aug 05 14:10
DaemonFCLots of RAM makes no sense on low/mid grade cards.Aug 05 14:10
abeNd-org1I can possibly justify ~100 USD on a card, so the 1GB superclocked Ti750 evga would just about fit the bill, no way i can justify anything more expensiveAug 05 14:10
DaemonFCOn top of the line ones it might, if you're running really demanding stuff on maximum settings at high res.Aug 05 14:11
DaemonFCGet a used card off of ebay.Aug 05 14:11
abeNd-org1it would still be far & above the onboard intel 4000 i have nowAug 05 14:11
DaemonFCThe 7870s only seem to run about $70-80 by the time the auctions are done.Aug 05 14:11
DaemonFCThey do need two 6 pins though.Aug 05 14:11
abeNd-org1how good is the 7870 compared to the 750Ti? i havent paid much attention to ATIAug 05 14:11
DaemonFCBut they would pulverize that 750 Ti.Aug 05 14:12
DaemonFCLike, uhh, about four times faster.Aug 05 14:12
DaemonFCGive or take. :)Aug 05 14:12
abeNd-org1the other reason i was going for the 750Ti is power requirements, wife wont approve of buying a replacement power supplyAug 05 14:12
abeNd-org1those 750 Ti work with 300watt PSUAug 05 14:12
DaemonFCMaybe not four, but close.Aug 05 14:12
abeNd-org1& this was a free gateway 4860DX, so wife doesnt want me really spending $ on itAug 05 14:12
DaemonFChmmmAug 05 14:13
DaemonFCI've got a 4670 and a 5670 that I'm not really doing too much with.Aug 05 14:13
abeNd-org1core i5, 12gb ram 1tb wdc black, so not a bad box for free, even though it moosAug 05 14:13
DaemonFCThe 5670 isn't a fantastic card, but it's still better than integrated video, and it doesn't need to plug into the power supply.Aug 05 14:14
DaemonFCSupports DirectX 11 and OpenGL 4.4.Aug 05 14:14
abeNd-org1yea, that & cost were the reasons i was looking at the 750TiAug 05 14:14
DaemonFCI think the 750 Ti only uses like 55 watts at maximum load.Aug 05 14:14
DaemonFCSo, you're well under the limit of the port itself, which is 75 watts.Aug 05 14:15
abeNd-org1yep, i dont have the budget approval for a 900W PSU just for a $300+ video card :)Aug 05 14:15
DaemonFCWell, you could probably get away with a 750 Ti on that psu. I wouldn't try to run anything more.Aug 05 14:16
abeNd-org1hrm, newegg only has the 2GB varietyAug 05 14:16
DaemonFCThe newer Core series processors and DDR3 RAM use less power than ever, so you could probably get close to the 75 watt port limit without risking your psu.Aug 05 14:16
abeNd-org1yea, the amazon reviews have people running 300watt PSU with that card & actually use it for gaming, they are happy enoughAug 05 14:16
DaemonFCMy Core i7 4770 only uses 68 watts at full load.Aug 05 14:16
abeNd-org1i dont plan on playing crysis or anything like thatAug 05 14:17
DaemonFCThe Phenom II X4 that it replaced was three times slower and used 125 watts max.Aug 05 14:17
DaemonFC:)Aug 05 14:17
abeNd-org1$125 vs $154 for 1GB vs 2GBAug 05 14:17
DaemonFCwell, if you can get the 2 GB version for not much more after factoring in the rebate, then go for it.Aug 05 14:18
DaemonFCI'd say don't pay more than $10 more, or you're being robbed. It's just not likely to be useful.Aug 05 14:18
DaemonFCReally, video games are pretty poorly optimized, for the most part.Aug 05 14:19
abeNd-org1yea, i doubt diablo3/starcraft2/older games could use more than 1GB ramAug 05 14:19
DaemonFCSome developers, like Bethesda, just rush out broken unoptimized shit.Aug 05 14:19
DaemonFCAnd then they make their money and pretty much abandon it.Aug 05 14:19
DaemonFCand their broken game lingers on in Steam forever :)Aug 05 14:20

msbI tried Comcast's speed test and it said it would start in 6,000 seconds, and began counting down.Aug 05 21:36
msbClever!  But another speed test website did show an increase to 2.47 MB/sec, which is definitely faster.Aug 05 21:37
msbOf course I'm not getting any faster from the server I'm really interested in, but what the hey, it's prime time here.Aug 05 21:41
DaemonFCI ended up buying the R9 270 instead of the 270X.Aug 05 22:01
DaemonFCThe 270X is only 3% faster, but the 270 was on sale for about 20% less today with free shipping.Aug 05 22:02
DaemonFCAnd it only uses 150 watts instead of 180.Aug 05 22:02
DaemonFCSo the R9 270 is going to be almost as fast as the Geforce GTX 660 Ti for $100 less.Aug 05 22:03
DaemonFCScore!Aug 05 22:03
DaemonFCmsb, I changed the order. The Sapphire Vapor X R9 270X was in their Daily Deal for $10 more.Aug 05 22:32

DaemonFCI gope I can fit that card I bought into my case...Aug 06 12:12
DaemonFCI guess if I had to, I could take the drive bay out. All that's in the side bay is my ssd. I could move that and put it on the bottom of the case. :PAug 06 12:13

DaemonFCOh, I'm sure that with some work, I could get it in. Giggidy! Aug 06 12:19
DaemonFCI don't really want to take my drive bay out, but I guess that since my hard drive is using the front bay anyway, it is an option.Aug 06 12:20

DaemonFCThe only part where Sapphire seems to have cut you a break with the Vapor-X R9 270X is that the six pin power cables plug into the side. So it's a question of whether I have 2" left behind my current card to work with without taking the drive bay out.Aug 06 12:21
DaemonFCThat card is bigger than it looked. Tiger Direct doesn't give you the specs, so I figured it would be about the same as what I've got.Aug 06 12:22

DaemonFCMy Geforce is 4.38" wide and the Vapor-X R9 270X is 4.03, so I know it will fit that way.Aug 06 12:24
DaemonFCMy case has a thing that props up against the graphics card. I was hoping I wouldn't have to remove that too. :PAug 06 12:24
DaemonFCI was thinking about editing my order again to go back to the R9 270, but that card is still 9" and the power cables plus into the back.Aug 06 12:26
DaemonFCI'm about 98% certain that I can get the Vapor X card in there without taking the drive bay out, but it's going to be....very close.Aug 06 12:26

DaemonFCIt's going to be pretty ugly.Aug 06 12:28

DaemonFCabeNd-org, The XFX Double D was half an inch shorter, but cost $70 more. I'd rather do some work with the hard drive cage than pay another $70 for what's basically the same card.Aug 06 12:46
DaemonFCI've had XFX cards before, and they do a good job, but they're a little steep. Still, it does kind of piss me off that Sapphire couldn't find a way to get their card down by half a smegging inch. :PAug 06 12:46
DaemonFCabeNd-org, The people who made the cases for the VLB cards would have probably anticipated you using one though. :PAug 06 12:48
abeNd-orgyes, in fact there were guides/mounts on the edge side so it wouldn't bowAug 06 12:49
DaemonFCI'd run into the same space problem with the Dual-X configuration too because it's still nearly 10" and the six pin ports are on the back. :PAug 06 12:51

DaemonFCI'm probably going to email Sapphire after I get this card situation sorted out and ask them why their Vapor-X cooler is so long when the competition's is half an inch shorter. Aug 06 14:39
DaemonFCA half an inch doesn't sound like much, but I'd imagine it's the difference between the card fitting and an angry pissed off customer in a lot of cases. I think that card makers should really work to make sure that they don't go over the 10" mark. 9.9" should probably be considered a limit, because it will usually fit at 9.9 with an acceptable amount of room left over.Aug 06 14:39
DaemonFCThen again, I've also ran into these really long cards that have the 6 pin ports at the back, so if that's what they're doing, t
