In Topic: Activision May be Laying Off Hundreds on Tuesday

09 February 2019 - 04:38 PM

It's all about the money, you need something to show shareholders,.. the stagnancy of Blizzards MAUs combined with a lack of new IPs is prompting Activision's executives to intervene. 


I thought they were doing OK with Diablo being huge in China, and then heard about a cancelled second expansion for Diablo III and cancelled Titan,.. It's tough for game developers to be passionate about creating games, when executives care more about profits than it's staff.

Vega VII launched today, but was not available or listed as sold out on every site I checked, so was it a paper launch or are they actually selling cards. 


Edit : Found some in stock at CaseKing.  :yes:  https://www.caseking...Category/318949

Most likely somewhere in his house or office, their is a small  piece of paper with the pass-phrase or pass-word to unlock the wallet written down, or a photo/note of it on a cell phone. 


Also can't rule out faking his death in India, or his wife truly knowing the passwords.  :lol:

Sounds like the a dead bearing. If it is the fan.

Thanks for the thermal data

Okay now I'm not sure what is going with it, the fans keep randomly stopping, starting and sometimes spin backwards at a few rpms a minute.  :dunno:


Awhile back few years ago Enermax D.F fans would spin-up in reverse at start-up to clean the dust off,.. perhaps Cooler Master is using a new random DFR technology.  :nyea:  https://hexus.net/te...t-dust-busting/

In Topic: SSD for Server OS drive

28 January 2019 - 04:11 AM

The main advantage of flash drives over traditional HDD drives is the ability to perform many concurrent I/O operations per second (IOPS). Is it necessary for your home server's Windows system partition? Usually HDD drives are sufficient. It of course depends on the workload configured on the server but the operating system by itself doesn't need SSD's


On the other hand, SSD's are useful for vary active database applications, that create large amount of IOPS and generates large number of random disk reads/writes.
