Re: Website Popup Video Player is Killing Me!

Yeah, you could try using a script blocker. It may not be embedded as a visual element of the page layout, but it can still be a part of the initial page load, and then just scripted and styled to look like an overlay/popup. If that's the case, then the built in popup blocker won't catch it. If the ...

Re: TV Solution

They're pretty nifty. I have the cable card version, and it's been problem-free for the past year or so. Plex works well with it, although the Plex app for my TV has developed connection issues lately. Works fine from a standalone PC though.

Re: OS/2 is coming back.

Due to the lack of support and the really ancient hardware OS/2 runs on, wouldn't it current users be way better off getting new hardware and switching over to BSD or Linux? Hardware support wasn't all that great to begin with and it is a huge nightmare trying to find still working 90's era systems...

If they can fix it, great. If not, they'll remember it for next time.

Re: SFF Zen 8c/16t system.

I don't think there's any way Threadripper could be compatible with AM4. The extra memory channels alone is going to occupy a decent chunk of space which I don't believe is included in AM4 at the moment.

Re: SFF Zen 8c/16t system.

I have seen ITX boards with 4 dimm slots, but not with a CPU this big. The only thing I can think of which would make that doable is if they added little daughterboards like Asus did with the Maximus VIII Impact. Otherwise there's just not enough room.

Node 304 and an EVGA G3 650. Probably my favorite ITX case so far. The Cryorig C7 fits in there with room to spare and it's got plenty of room for drives. If you're ok reducing the number of drives from six to four(still more than enough for me) you can also fit a decent sized video card in it. It's...
