  1. The main way I read OCC is through the RSS feed, using Protopage. For some time now (week or two?) it's been reporting: I can access the RSS link without problem in a browser, but apparently Protopage can't. Has there been a change in permissions or something?
  2. Well, turns out I got it in 2018. So I totally failed on that 'first purchase of 2019' prediction. So on the last day of 2018 I got a CPU made in 2011 (the date printed on the CPU; the box says 2015).
  3. Another year, another shattered dream. Congratulations to all the winners. I always enjoy entering this competition because it's a great community and having this posted as a thread on the forum makes it nice to follow. Other giveaways are simply send and forget. Also, this competition always makes me think what I want to buy. My next purchase (after the FX 8350 I've already ordered) would probably be a cheap case. And I'd still love an update about Bosco to be posted here.
  4. That's an old PC. Mine was originally from 2009, but went through enough upgrades that it's completely changed. Started with an AM2+ board (Gigabyte 790, IIRC) with Phenom II X3 710, then I upgraded to a Phenom II X6 1090T, then, after the memory slots started failing and I luckily won a DDR3 kit, I upgraded to an AM3+ board in 2013. Now I'll put the FX 8350 in that board.
  5. As a stay at work dad my gaming time has also gone down to near non-existent. But I still try to dabble a little with PC hardware. I just ordered an FX 8350 to upgrade my Phenom II X6, which was what I said as an answer to "What will be your first computer part purchase for 2019?" Ended up as the last computer part purchase for 2018. But I'll get it in 2019.
  6. You can't say that and then not tell us how much longer is 'much longer'. That's cruel. At the very least say something like 'our anonymous sources say that AMD will announce the OCC winners at the CES keynote' or 'just as soon as we sober up, could take a while, we're still drinking'.
  7. I enjoyed the copy of RiME that I got last year. (Or rather, enjoyed watching my son play it.) I guess there are just a lot of entrants who don't post to the forum. This reminded me of the old spamming competitions at Driver Heaven, where your chance increased the more you posted.
  8. It think it was March, and only in 2016. But hey, OCC can do several Christmas competitions a year and I won't be complaining.
  9. Very nice! Any details of the particular models?
  10. I didn't give the answer to 'What will be your first computer part purchase for 2019?' enough thought when sending the mail. Although it was quite realistic (nothing planned), I really could use a new case and new PSU for the 2200G PC, which uses a really old (probably over 10 years) case with some annoying things and a nondescript and inefficient 400W PSU. At the very least it would be nice to replace that case. The only thing is, I hardly use the desktops. I also need to check if the RX 460 from my HTPC is really dead. If so, it would be nice to get a new low power half height card. Maybe AMD's 7nm Navi would help there. (Though the rumours only talk about 75W and up.)
  11. My favourite giveaway is back! But that reminded me, how's Bosco? What's been happening in the half year since that flood?
