For several weeks in a row a browser extension was reloading AMDˋs store around 1730 at a rate that was not triggering the DDOS detection. No chance. I tried a bookmarklet script that surfaces the Add To Cart button regardless of the actual state of the store. No chance. The store is sold out in a couple of seconds every week.
Prior to that I tried to buy a current generation GPU from AMD (because Linux). I already heard that prices are super high at the moment. But boy. Three times the original price?! The only place to get decent prices seemed to be the AMD online store. But whenever I went there, GPUs were always Out Of Stock. I took a while for me to find out that thursdays at 1730 local time AMD is restocking.
Today I bought a used graphics card on a marketplace for double the price the card had cost 5 month ago. #capitalism And I still feel I was lucky. Here is how that came to pass
Just to finish this story. It apparently was the memory controller of the CPU. My PC built finally seems to run smoothly after I replaced the CPU. Next Task. I need a better GPU. I will post my thoughts on that later.
Love how this screenshot supposedly shows how Windows is "focusing on design" again 👌
OMG, these sounds (you have to watch the embedded video in order to what I mean) https://www.polygon.com/22412468/mcdonalds-treasure-land-adventure-creepy-easter-egg-secret-cheat-masato-maegawa #clownsarecreepy
Can someone make sense of these boot messages (screenshots below)? My PC refuses to boot since yesterday: neither from the internal NVME, nor from USB.
I took screenshots from several attempts to boot current linux install media via USB (Arch and Fedora).
Any Idea which part of the hardware might cause these problem? I tried to eliminate some by for example removing the NVME or removing and reordering the RAM.
Shortwave 2.0 is available now 🥳
