Damn now that's a well made bag. I'd be lucky if i get more than a year or two from any bag a have ever had. Clearly stood the test of time :)
Doing my job I have learned some people are harder on stuff than others. I have a couple co-workers that could mess up an anvil with a feather.

Re: Swiss Gear Pegasus Laptop Backpack by Wenger

Was asked about my laptop bag this morning by someone that was looking for a new bag. Then I got to thinking, I doubt this is even made anymore, at least in the form I have. I have carried this thing daily since getting it for review in 2007. It has transported 5 different laptops over the years, cu...

Re: Cannot Install Any Applications On Windows 10

If your login is set as an Admin and still have to "run as administrator" then sounds like its UAC (User Access Control) that is causing headaches.

I just turn that off, I found even Corsairs iCue software will sometimes not run right with UAC on.

Re: Cannot Install Any Applications On Windows 10

Things to look at

- Program not compatible with Win10
- Windows 10 in S mode
- other pending installs or previous version of software causing issues
- pending restart needed
- Do not have access rights to folder being changed
- UAC is preventing it somehow
- User profile corrupted.

Re: UPS Backup device

get 2 more surge ports on the Cyberpower, and slightly smaller than the APC. APC is a newer design, slightly bigger than the Cyberpower. The Trip Lite is a rack mount layout, charges little faster, least amount of surge and battery ports. Depending on how your desk is set up, this one could be annoy...

Re: UPS Backup device

Between home and work I have and use Eaton/Powerware, Cyberpower, and APC. Until to get up to serious power draw they all use basically the same battery, either single or in groups. First step is to figure out your power draw and get one that will fit the bill for how long you want something to keep...

Re: New Setup!

Nice Lian Li 011D clone.. just missing the 3.5" HDD trays on the back. Nice compromise for being half the price. Want to downsize a little, was looking at the 011D or 011D XL, and then I realized that its only 1" narrower than what I currently run, and I loose my 5.25 bay (yes, I have BR burner for ...

Re: Any thoughts on CineRAID SYSTEMS CR-H408

if you have enough spare parts or system, see if you have a board with enough SATA ports and setup FreeNAS. Its based on FreeBSD, and uses ZFS to make drive pools with parity. No RAID card needed, it can be picky about HBA controllers if you wanted to pick up a controller card to run more drives tha...

Re: CoolerMaster V8 GTS

being legacy doubt Cooler Master will have anything laying around.

Its a odd fan being round, LED, and Low profile (20mm).

I had an OG V8 cooler until about a month ago (moving purge, didn't even realize I had the thing lol), but the fans for that are not the same as the GTS.
