I've come up with a better build from PC Specialist (which actually works out cheaper than the one in my OP): AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT CPU (6 cores at 4.5GHz base speed) 8GB AMD Radeon RX580 16GB Corsair Vengeance RAM (2x 8GB, DDR4, 3200MHz) 1TB PCIe SSD 24x DVD R/W optical drive Corsair 750w RMx power su...

I'm thinking of dropping some cash on a kickass gaming rig. I have some experience of PC building from cheap/used parts but for this kind of investment I want a warranty behind it and the reassurance of having it built by people who know what they're doing (the PC I built lasted about six months bef...

I've been using Linux as my main desktop for 6 years (mainly Mint) and I've always approached it on a problem-solution basis; I have something I want to do and I figure out how to do it. I haven't consciously tried to learn terminal commands or become a "power user". I just learn what I ne...

I've decided to post here because I think posters here are likely to know more about human biology than the folks in the politics section. I've been thinking about the 28% who are at risk of serious illness from Covid. If we can spot the genetic pattern that makes a 25 year old with no pre-existing ...

In the States the stores label where the fruits and veggies come from. Are you fresh veggies from the local area or do the come from a distant part of the world? In the UK, a lot of our food is imported from the EU (which is one of the concerns with Brexit) so I suppose things might be different fo...

I was always taught that fresh vegetables were always preferable to frozen but the prevailing nutritional wisdom (in the UK at least) is that frozen is better because the vegetables are fresher when they're frozen than they are by the time the fresh article gets to you in the supermarket. This remin...

I think I am just hoping that Johnson comically screws it all up snatching defeat from the jaws of victory and we end up with a hung parliament, from which emerges a Lib/Lab/SNP coalition. Be careful what you wish for. That could be the trigger for some real unrest in the country. I'm not even sure...

One way of looking at it is that the basis for the accusation of racial profiling is dependant on the associations people make when they see "No Hoodies" or "No Tracksuit Bottoms" (in the UK white people wear those clothes just as much as black people) so, if someone interprets t...

I've never explored their music in any depth but I've always loved Firestarter. I almost bought that album on impulse a while back.

May he rest in peace.

Musical growth? If artists keep releasing the same album every couple of years people will tire of them and stop listening to their records. At the same time, there is also the risk of going too far away from their usual material and upsetting their existing fanbase. It can be a very difficult balan...

I spend a lot of time these days listening to music to the point where I feel a creative itch to do something of my own. I'm too lazy to learn an instrument but I like the idea of playing General in a virtual production studio and experimenting with drum beats/bass lines/guitar riffs/piano melodies,...

All done. Just had to ask to reset my password and two minutes later I'm signing in and out no problem. Looks like I'm all set for the PS4. Thanks very much for your help.

You shouldn't buy an N64 if you intend to use it on an HDTV unless you plan on getting the very expensive HDMI mod done. It's the most CRT-dependant system I've come across; I found the games virtually unplayable on two different flatscreens. RGB might yield better results but that still requires a ...

I'm planning to buy a PS4 in the not too distant future and wish to use the Playstation Store. I opened an account with what was the Sony Entertainment Network back in 2013 to buy some PSP games and haven't used the account since. I just tried logging in on the PS website with my e-mail address and ...

XBox 360 - you can pick up a slim model with 250GB hard drive for about £60 and games for as little as £3. I particularly recommend the GTA games (IV, V and Episodes from Liberty City), Red Dead Redemption, Ghostbusters: the Video Game, Blur and Split/Second: Velocity.

Had an Atari. I remember upgrading the RAM TO 1MB... then I really was away. I used to play "Knights of the Sky" for hours on end. Embarrassing edit... it wasn't even a CD, it was a floppy disc... oops! Ah, a fellow ST man. I still use an ST to this day (4MB STe) with a hard drive emulato...
