Re: When Windows 7 is dead in 2020 what OS will you migrate to??

Figures, it ran for 5 hours looping passmark last night on stock freq (3.3ghz) without ever bsod. I think I am going to try a better/harder cpu test, like prime95 or any suggestions? I like to test with OCCT. https://www.ocbase.com/ But I don't really like to stress test my PC much more than 5minut...

I found my notes on my Asus P6x58-e-pro with i7-980x/24gb/gtx480, trying win10 (v1709 two years ago) it randomly bsod (nothing like the bsod on i7-920 every hour). The i7-980x bsod gave "whea.unrecoverable.error". When I have time I will try the latest version of windows. I am going to need a psu a...

Re: Elephant in the room - Quadcopters...

Never seen these in before, now there are Drone and Plane ALL-IN-ONE.
Can do VTOL style flight because the motors can turn from vertical to a horizontal direction for more distance flights.

I think the "electric flying Taxi" has a big future. If I was entrepreneurial billionaire this is what I would get into.
