Re: Fuel Hack: ATX PSU Converter/Adapter - 3 in stock

This does of course mean the 750W versions should also work just fine, they're the same model except for higher current on the12V rail, so I think it'd be ok adding those too.

Re: Fuel Hack: ATX PSU Converter/Adapter - 3 in stock

Also confirmed working with the 650W version of the same above Thermaltake model (testing with an 800/V12), and a completely new modern version, the 650W Thermaltake Toughpower Grand RGB, though note it looks like Thermaltake have moved the kettle lead socket slightly closer to the edge of the PSU (...

Re: doomed - use! HTTPS Everywhere - google explained why

What's common to both of them is socialism though, that's what ruined them (perfectly implemented in Venezuela). As for Greece, hah! You're kidding right? Their economy was so messed up, and they fiddled the figures before being admitted to the EU, the tax system was (still is) a mess, the state own...

Re: doomed - use! HTTPS Everywhere - google explained why

If you want to conserve and grow your wealth, invest in valuable things such as fine art or collectible items for example, as these only grows in value over time, whereas money only depreciates over time. (Make use of money, simply as a means to acquire these things of value.) However, you need to ...

Unfortunately that doesn't prevent such money from being devalued by the state via money printing. It's the biggest carrot for the gullible at every election, free stuff!

shutitalldown, my point btw was that jan-jaap commented on the use of XP, presumably with respect to security issues, and your response was that you used a smartphone for relevant tasks for, "...payments, where I have to expose my credit card, Paypal, or bank account...", yet the reply to ...

Forgot to mention this vid: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZmlQoeEycPc Btw Elf, totally agree; there's a great line in The West Wing where Ainsley tells Sam that it isn't that Sam dislikes guns, rather, Sam doesn't like the people who like guns: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VEgCp6qqxik Not quite...

Hehe, good one hamei. :D

Sometimes all this reminds me of Terry Gilliam's movie, "Brazil". :\

Yup. Well, what a surprise. 8\ Few seem to know about Alphabet though, the parent group.

Re: doomed - use! HTTPS Everywhere - google explained why

Yup, though if someone does think I'm talking b.s., I would expect them to present a rationale for believing that's the case, whereas I have plenty of evidence to back up everything I've said. Google is quite open about its aims (see the relevant vids by Dave Cullen), and it has many completely open...

commodorejohn, that's what was most noteable amid the comments to Lunduke's video, the sheer number of people who insist that anything which cannot handle a site with https should not be used at all anymore. It reminds me of that old joke about where the Queen visits she always smells fresh paint; i...

Re: doomed - use! HTTPS Everywhere - google explained why

Quick followup, I found this, Lunduke talking about https: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wNPvIk3jQ-M What I found interesting was the degree of venom in the comments, the pressure there seems to be that anything perceived to be even fractionally old needs to die off. Those saying such things have ...
