    What's on your mind?

    The actual purpose is for use on areas that can get sweaty but not evaporate like feet, baby butt-cheeks etc as a rash preventative. Using it while the skin is still wet defeats the purpose.

    I think you have to eject them to be totally sure... or possibly the Intel software helps there. It's been so long since I installed Windows on this machine - I do remember throwing in a registry hack that stops my fixed drives appearing on the eject list.

    What's on your mind?

    Probably not - I tried it out on another machine that has the bay installed but no OS so just used Hiren's Boot CD off a flashdrive which is a custom Windows 10 PE job and it seemed to work OK. The bay has a slide switch which takes the drive on/offline and I assume also cuts all the power including it's ventilation fan.

    Feeling too tight to buy a replacement internal drive so thinking I'll just put a rack in and run a new 2 TB I have sitting in the cupboard as a hotswap. I've not really done it before but it's just a case of enable hotswap in the Bios, ensure AHCI mode is set and have Intel Rapid Storage Technology software installed, no ?

    i see dead people

    Sondra Locke, aged 74 from cancer. Actress and partner of Clint Eastwood for about 13 years. Various roles but the ones I feel were most prominent were in Every Which Way But Loose, Any Which Way You Can and The Gauntlet.

    What Did You Watch Lately ?

    The story just seems cheap and cheesy but the SFX and production looks A-grade. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1977094/
  7. Pretty impressive build - I'll have to watch the videos later when I get some time.

    Post Your Latest Real Life Purchase!

    Meat compartment? Most fridges have the seperate freezer, the crisper bin, cheese and egg zones in the doors and sometimes a "chill zone" which is cooler than the rest. NFI about no meat compartment though.

    Voyager 2 now in interstellar space (just under 6.5 years after Voyager 1)

    Went into Rebel Sport looking for AFL gear for a mate's b'day. Nothing, useless. They had a few racks of soccer and basketball, the only AFL stuff was some footballs. Eating turkey sanger for lunch... funny how you may as well just eat wet cardboard if it doesn't have cranberry sauce on it.

    Actually Aldi had/has arcade cabs on sale. I think one is Williams based with Defender and other early-mid 80s games. But they're asking way too much. Something like half the height of a real standup machine and over $250.

    What's on your mind?

    Yeah - 95% of sales will go to the nostalgia crowd and those who don't realise that you can easily emulate the thing with a cheap phone and that most of the games practically fall out of trees. I saw a 20 game Atari 2600 joystick for $20 in the Reject Shop the other day - tempting but I already spent $55 on the C64 in a stick about 10 years ago and it's had maybe a couple of hours worth of use.

    PMSL - the Playstation Classic which is selling for $149 is just a cheap ARM based board with a bunch of EOL support hardware with a total BOM that's probably under $40, and running a public domain PS1 emulator.

    So - who's around these days?

    Until last night the O was as intended, now it's a slashed zero. (Firefox browser)

    Windows Refresh IMO is a bit of a joke, it takes longer than a reinstall - only advantage being that user files and store apps can be left in place (not traditional "programs" though). Given you might be starting out with a corrupt install it's a bit dubious. Out of curiosity I tried on a freshly installed VM and it takes 3 times as long as just running the fresh install - of course in the real world there can be savings had when you consider stuff like hunting down drivers and doing the save/restore of user files.
