Re: Best Overall OS for gaming rig

Windows 10 Home is all you really need, Win 10 Pro adds Bitlocker (for drive encryption) and a lot of enterprise networking features; That's not to say you couldn't game on Mac OSX fairly well these days too. Compare Windows 10 editions Linux, mainly Ubuntu (and other Debian variations), also has a ...

Re: Lanreg Forgot password option

LANREG is not owned or operated by PDXLAN. It is just a nice service for organizing events & selling tickets.

I would recommend contacting LANREG directly at the email address they provide on the website, admin@lanreg.org

Re: Browser question.

...just firing up Chrome, to an internal web page without any payloads at all, there are 5 process applications started, and memory and proc usage jumps 50% or better with just one tab open. More tabs, it just gets worse from there. I've heard this complaint before, but I've never really understood...

Re: I think my headphones are dead

The most I can spend is about $50. I'd recommend something like these Skullcandy wireless earbuds ($39.99 right now), or if you prefer headphones style these Avantree Wireless / Wired Bluetooth 4.0 Over Ear Headphones with Mic ($44.99 right now). I'm also curious about how I can pair my next pair o...

Re: Older Person Computer?

How would she feel about a Chromebook? There are some really affordable options out there, and it sounds like based on her needs it might be a perfect fit without all the typical OS stuff to worry about. Plus there are Chrome solitaire apps out there too, https://chrome.google.com/webstore/search/so...

Re: Image size restrictions

I upped the maximum image width to 640px, as 640x640 is the default large thumbnail Imgur generates. Hopefully that helps? :)
