Wait a minute, you mean to tell me that there are computer geek types that actually throw stuff away when it's no longer useful? Can someone please tell my husband?
I usually keep parts around for at least a whole computer. Then throw away the oldest one...

Well, when I attempt to hardware transcode, I am. But that's what makes things crashy.

That may be the root cause.

uhh, after they sat in the attic for at least a decade.

I found some really nice IDE cables i custom sleeved in a box. Can safely say I dont need those anymore.

can you pin the plex docker image to one or several of the normal cores? Keep it off the e-cores?

I got a whole-ass Intel e8500 with a GeForce 7200GS in it.

It's from '08, but if you got a need, I don't have a spot for it, I was just going to dick around.

Mmmm you can fuck around with it. I'd never get windows 11 to run on it. Maybe unbuntu but I need autocad and I have a notebook that is more powerful.

No offense, if you want to build a router or something I wouldnt deprive you for something I'd barely use.

I appreciate the thought though.
