More fun with EFI/UEFI BIOS implementations by Flasherly[_2_]
I don't think he likes my MB. http://www.rodsbooks.com/refind/index.html ... The worst I've personally encountered is on Gigabyte's Hybrid EFI, which provides you with no boot options whatsoever, beyond choosing the boot device (hard disk vs. optical disc, for instance).

How not to buy a LiIon by Flasherly[_2_]
Two "cell-phone" sized batteries. These were "buffered", as are some Chinese interests, from ready West Coast US of A stock and facilities. BL-5C is the nomenclature, common class, and the XHDATA I think may have been augmented with some brandname. I cut off the wrappers, anyway, taped both...

Crash&Burn Asus/Rawk by Flasherly[_2_]
NEWEGG is doing a sum rebated end for $40. Get it? ... AM4 ... $40. I guess. The thing actually reads like a dive bomber out of a comic book -- Amazon reviews directly as apparently as well a Google search. Total Meltdown City. Kind of gets to me that Newegg would do that: Take a spoon, dip...

RAM temperature sensors needed soon. by [email protected]
Cryptocoins may start using algorithms which can be executed fast only on CPU-RAM chips. Problem with this is current hardware has no RAM temperature sensors ?!?!? Therefore I am requesting this feature to be added to new hardware as soon as possible. Bye, Skybuck.
