Re: Octane 2 on bay to us only. Not mine

The lockbar is like that likely to keep the back from getting bent in storage. If the back of the bar gets bent you're kinda screwed (BTDT)

The back looks like a normal vpro carrier to me. The screw hole on top is for if you were going to install the impact graphics carrier.

Re: What pointless thing are you doing right now?

I have also version 6.6 professional still installed (I don't trust autodesk much either, tho I've never had a problem, I also don't work in a bunker without a signal :lol: ), but being able to scroll and zoom via multitouch and not needing to find a mouse, and also mostly working retina support, ar...

FS: Thinkpad mini dock + 3, 170w power supply

For w520, 530, etc. Has keys. This is the one with *two* DP/DVI ports (hence the +) Shipping within USA only. Added: it should work with X and T series of the same vintage. It works with my x220 but only with one display. Update again: I've stuck it on ebay... http://m.ebay.com/itm/Lenovo-Mini-Dock-...

Re: What pointless thing are you doing right now?

I've been using eagle forever, finally upgraded to autodesk version late last year. Worth it. I've tried a few others and they all suck IMO. Their salesmen suck too. I don't know orcad very well but building your own footprints/packages tends to be a pita no matter what you are using. I've considere...

Re: If you must use Windows 10 and default apps is driving you crazy...

As far as stupid workarounds, have you tried leaving a silent (or mute the speaker) music track playing in e.g. itunes? Should allow the screen to be locked at least.

Re: Netiquette, moderation, etc. (was FS: Fuel R16 700, 2G, V6)

There's a reason nobody buys this stuff no more. Without software it ain't worth donkey pee. The only gadget I've ever regretted selling was my ipad pro, thinking I could get away with only an iphone @ home. So I bought another one. I like my finger-painting. All the irix boxes I ever had I was gla...

So wait a sec. I remember ivelegacy, the Italian guy who threatened everyone and then demanded all of his posts be deleted. Is Y888099 him? I noticed the veiled references here but I didn't want to assume... I sort of miss that guy who was supposedly from .nl, every 3rd word he typed was bolded or ...

Re: your latest purchase

As a relative newcomer to the android universe, I don't understand why Sony phones aren't more popular. (X Compact, here) I actually like the OK Google. It's like siri except without cotton stuffing in her ears. Still useless, but at least it works :) It is similar in appearance to the lumia 920 whi...

Re: A Guide on Your Options for non-x86 Computers (2017)

So there was a big hubbub about the ME this week. https://twit.tv/shows/security-now/episodes/610 Since my laptop doesn't have the vPro processor (i7-6500u), doesn't have a built-in ethernet jack (there is one in the dock, through a TB3 bridge etc....), an aftermarket wifi chip, etc, I assume I am p...

hey Dipshit ! Did you know that in a year you've hassled more people than the entire group of moderators put together in the entire existence of nekochan ?

Re: A Guide on Your Options for non-x86 Computers (2017)

And lo, several someones have written Emacs extensions to turn it into a spreadsheet...every time I make a joke about Emacs, I go and look it up afterward and find out that it's actually the case. I thought you were being serious, I certainly wasn't going to take that bet. But there is one called D...
