"Microsoft Announces Modern OS" by Paul Thurrott by Lynn McGuire[_3_]
"Microsoft Announces Modern OS" by Paul Thurrott https://www.thurrott.com/windows/windows-10/207439/microsoft-announces-modern-os In an otherwise innocuous blog post about new PCs announce at Computex, Microsoft talked up the need for something it calls Modern OS. And it does not appear to be...

anybody making RTL8125 NICs besides Speed Dragon? [2.5Gbase-t] by [email protected]
I believe Realtek RTL8125 (2.5 Gbps) has appeared in a few mainboards, but I can only find two ethernet cards from a company called Speed Dragon. And I don't think many retailers are offering them, so I wondered if anybody else makes a NIC from RTL8125. I know Aqnanita-based cards are out there (5...

More Delayed Sandisk Weirdities by Flasherly[_2_]
A year ago or more I got into some new Micro Sandisk cards. Four or five of them: 16 32 and 64G. New speed Ultra/Pro stuff to older ratings. The newest and fastest ones, 64G, I thought I'd bricked. Then, I recently got a 7" HandDroid, running a variant of *NIX, like most do.

Kaspersky Rescue Disk Report - can't see full paths by Shadow[_2_]
Ran Kaspersky Rescue Disk last night. I usually just do a simple scan, (boot, start-up and system files), which takes a couple of minutes and always comes back clean. This time I included all my drives, and it detected 460 "objects" Almost all were false positives (old Nirlauncher zips, debugging...

motherboard 5v by T. Ment
My legacy ECS K7S5A motherboard BIOS hardware monitor says the 5v is low. So I used a multimeter to check a USB 5v header pin, and it says 4.75v. The power supply 5v disk connector has exactly 5v, so the power supply is good. If I replace the 5v AGP card with a 3.3v card, the USB pin...

huananzhi x99-ad3 mainboard = cheap chinese crap? by [email protected]
Huananzhi has been making cheapo "X79" mainboards to utilise used Xeon CPUs for people wanting to make a poor-man's server with a new board rather than one pulled from a server that ran for 24,000 hours without a siesta. They weren't too bad for the price. Now they have an "X99" version for...

Windows 10 version 1903, May 2019 Update is interesting...but has abizarre 'spy' feature in File Explorer by RayLopez99
In the Version 1903 update of Windows 10 rolling out in May 2019 (32 bit, just got it, haven't gotten the 64 bit yet) I don't like the new "File Explorer". For some reason--and I don't know how--Windows 10 keeps a silent "journal" on in the background and knows what files were deleted and/or...

question about mobo/graphics card by Yes[_2_]
Considering that some of the graphics cards I've seen pictured these days use two of the backplate slots to mount the card, have any motherboard manufacturers started offering mobos that are specifically desigend to accomodate two such cards. When I look at those graphics cards, it just seems like...

WD hi-state = ADATA/Seagate by Flasherly[_2_]
WD, aside, is labeling branded SSDs to color classes: a color meaning, accordingly in keeping with a prior tactic, is to provide no info on build assembly, short of taking it apart for chip nomenclature (colors corresponding to an Enterprise grade are spec'd, though). WD also tends to be...

memtest86+ 5.01 reported RAM speed not credible by [email protected]
I was given an old HP Proliant server to fix. It only had a flat CMOS battery. So I run memtest86+ and it says the memory is DDR3-4123! This is a Nehalem EP generation, and only an E5506, which supported 800 speed with ECC. Also says CAS 19, which you would get with DDR4-4000 RAM.

Found an interesting DAC. https://headfonics.com/2016/12/the-adi-2-pro-by-rme/ I'm running up to a possible only a 1/18 to 3/9 sample rate of WASAPI 384Khz, and it would take an Apple to double that. Good Sol Apple strikes again. Problem is a spare couple of thousand dollars, so looking for it...

TOSLINK red laser S/PDIF cable fixes by Flasherly[_2_]
Not really a fix. I had to take apart some laser carrier cables and splitters. Cheap stuff, so wasn't hard to figure. The input-output laser carrier connections is a matter of 64-ths an inch. You can take two of those plastic covered laser carrier wires,
