Liranan And recently it's been discovered that British army officers are part of the board of Twitter.

No more enslaved are those who falsely believe they are free and you lot are entirely enslaved as you live by the ignorance is strength mantra.

Anyway way off topic now
Have NEVER created any Facebook account, ever.

Simply because I never believed in it from the very beginning, also there is NO Twitter or any other 'social media' accounts.

I must be the hardest person to spy upon, for the United States, Russia and China regimes .

Really an x79 system is too slow for you? What did you use it for, just games? I still think a Core 2 Duo/Quad with 4GB+ of ram is still a decent online browser. Athlon II's are great little boxes for the web too. I still used Pentium 4's as my main daily drivers up till 2013, but I also had my Athlon II X2 at the same time and that thing flew with XP!

Doing some quick research, x79 motherboards can support 64GB of memory! Who can complain?... (Minus the IME of course) That's more memory than the new systems you buy at the store come with. Upgrade your older systems and save money.

We have entered a different paradigm than 30 years ago. Computers no longer make the enormous jump in computing power that they made back then and everything is getting parallelised. The future of computing lies in Intel's neural chips, that have thousands of slow cores rather than a few fast ones.

There's a cure for that, it's called reading, learning and trying.






Correction, antiquated hardware guy. You're playing around with stuff that if it is still supported it won't be much longer, the updates you install are the last ones the developers do. As for games, 5+-year-old games do not compare to modern ones and IF a modern game runs on 5+-year-old hardware they do so poorly.







I remember the good ole days too, but you won't find me booting up the Commodore 64 and running games in DOS to play Temple of Apshai.






Wow really? People trick other people? Who'd have thunk it Welcome to life, I'm smilinjohn (and if you think I was born with that name...) glad to meet you...


Read, learn, try. You said you were always looking for new information, read, learn, try


Read reviews and learn what a VPN is, does and why it's a good idea to use one. It's not just for illegal downloads, though a lot of that does go on with a VPN, I use a VPN to keep my ISP from selling my browsing history to marketing firms





Exactly, and older hardware is easier to crack than newer hardware is.





That's the thing that gets me when people question me about having an Amazon Alexa device. No, I don't worry about it, I don't do or talk about doing illegal stuff, it gets its internet connection from a segmented wireless network that doesn't have access to my wired network. Is it 100%? No probably not, but it is far from unsecured.


I'm not so important that the goberment is going to focus their attention on me, I'm a middle-aged, unemployed, fulltime student who likes to fish and build high-end PCs. A danger to the country hardly, the only danger I pose is to the bass population at my local lakes.






Agreed, though I do know a few guys like the OP in Montana annnnd that's why I came back to Kentucky





I think it's a tie between FB and Google





Because while they actively monitor the internet they aren't trying to make money off of your data, they are looking for threats to the country and their authority FB, on the other hand, is trying to profit off of your kitten picks, knowing you dog is puking on your new carpet, and what you had for a midnight snack
LOL, hilarious post. Older hardware is less secure than modern hardware and Montana is worse than Kentucky. I lolled hard.

I know right On a forum geared towards technology and the people who embrace it talking about new hardware not being secure tends to imprint that emoji on my brain.

We had a discussion about this last semester in my CIS-311 Management Information Systems class on the collection, farming, and marketability of big data. It has been for a while and over the last few years, they have gotten better at making better more productive sense of the volume they collect. If you need a figure of what it's net worth is, just look at the net worth of FB and Google, that tells you all you need to know.

From the wording, one would assume this person you refer to typically buys their PCs in a box if they know nothing better?


I'm not trying to be offending, just realistic. 5-+-year old hardware may still be usable, but does it really stack up with your current daily rig?


Even if I build a PC today with the intent it'll last 10 years, in 2029 I don't expect it will run the latest programs as well as it runs the latest programs today in 2019.


I've been upgrading gaming PCs for the kids of a friend of mine slowly (when her budget allows) over the last couple of months that are 5-year-old hardware. The first complaint from those kids is that their games run like crap. Do I keep the old componets, sure. Do I use those components in a build that is going to be a daily workhorse, nope. Not when I have the latest hardware at my fingertips.
