Fixed my new broken chinese keyboard by Flasherly[_2_]
Chinese Blue Mechanical Keyboard Switches. A dozen mini-screw attachments, 5 regular, the rest of which I got to with a Chinese mobile phone repair kit. (Some 30 or so usual screw-type fittings in today's micro and otherwise manufacturing jigsaw fits.) Pulled it apart, two pieces with many...

packaging of DIMMs (new componentry) by [email protected]
I notice that some brands of memory come with the DIMM stuck in a black platic tray (presumably the conductive anti-static stuff) but others are totally in transparent plastic. So is the protection important.

Downloading conciousness from another dimension/universe/place by [email protected]
Hello, I just had an idea for a fun experiment. There are a few people on this planet that believe that conciousness itself may come from another dimension/universe/place. There are some slight indications that this may be true. For example Einstein mentioned "spooky action at a distance"....

Archival Storage by Flasherly[_2_]
Recent assessment over the state of things, I'm running 10TBytes of HDDs: Five TBye HDD or at once and in addition from a backup reserve. Everything, all the way to a couple of Seagate 200G drives, even a pair of 250G WD Caviers. The latter, although the Seagates are by no means either immune,...

2T SSD SATA - $250 by Flasherly[_2_]
Direct Chinese marketing - no warranty, no nothing. Except, it is MICRON branded. My Micron, I bought, a USA-distribution of their 256G SSD, cost me four-times, per GByte, more. IOW if that same drive, cost adjusted for this one, it would have cost me $30 instead of $120 I paid:

Unreally Lucky HDD by Flasherly[_2_]
Slammed a few times the past couple days with fast black/brownouts. Not sure if that exacerbated my HDD, which I'd run diagnostics and begun a few months ago to suspect for a fault. Seagate 2T HDD with probably going on 10 years usage. Diagnostic software "red alerts" prompted me to clear off...

What Type of Cable is Thi by Boris[_5_]
I was cleaning out lots of hardware, and came upon this cable. https://postimg.cc/image/n9y5qbe8b/ The image is a little fuzzy, but the connector on the left has three gold pins. I couldn't find any connector pictorals that had this thing. Lots of old SCSI, parallel, and IDE stuff that was...

Upgrading USB 2 to USB 3 ports on a computer case by Yes[_2_]
I have an Antec 300 Illusion case. There are two USB 2.0 connector ports on the front. I'm thinking that I may want to upgrade them to USB 3.0. Has anyone upgraded USB 2 ports on a chassis to USB 3? I'd like to get some idea of what would need to be done. I could, of course, add a USB 3.0 hub...

PC with multiple organ failures by [email protected]
I was asked to check out a PC that wouldn't boot. It powered itself off after a second. It looked like mainboard was kaput. Then I checked out all the bits I removed. Both DIMMs were bad, and one of the two hard disks also bad. There was no obvious damage (such as beer spillage). So what do...

Win10 ISO on archive.org?? by [email protected]
My partner has a old HP PC, that was originally sold with Win7. It is unfit for latest version of Win10. In another forum, it was suggested to stay with 1703 version if you had it. Microsoft downloads only vomits forth the latest version for punters. If one searches for ISO of older builds, you get...

Intel's Cannon Lake (10 nm) delayed by [email protected]
LONG time coming. Samsung is making 10 nm stuff, but Intel claims their 10 nm is denser than Samsung's. It seems Intel, AMD, Samsung have different definitions of nm lithography. So far, there is a mobile i3. I await something with more grunt. Running Skylake-X on sustained AVX-512 will almost melt...

Unicomp Model-M a disaster by B00ze
Good day all. I love the Model M keyboard, and have several PS/2 ones. I also have 2 Unicomp USB Model M's. Now, I haven't tried the other one of those that I have (without Windows Keys) but the one I am using now is a DISASTER! I do not know what they did with their USB controller, but it is...

What is a "Softraid controller"? by Jimmy Wilkinson Knife
I thought software raid was simply using windows to mirror two drives, on standard disk controllers. So what is this card I have called a Silicon Image Softraid controller? It does hardware raid (as I would name it) - I can set up arrays in it's own bios before an OS loads. So why do they call...

PCI express graphics in a 1 lane slot? by Jimmy Wilkinson Knife
PCI express graphics in a 1 lane slot? Yes I know I can fiddle with extension ribbons, but why have they designed the 1 lane slots to physically not allow longer card to go into them? Is it to stop the user squashing motherboard components which may be nearby? Obviously it would run slower, but...
