    *Warning* Magix not issuing refunds

    I'll keep it short. Magix (Movie Studio, Vegas Movie Studio, Music Maker, ...) has recently changed their terms and conditions to state that they only give refunds for some their software to individuals or companies located in a member state of the EU, and no refunds for some of it. Period...

    Hardware Support

    Don't worry too much about the updates. Still using an i7-4820k on a x79 LGA2011 (Gigabyte) motherboard here. I would put a RTX 3070 in it and continue on if I could get one. Get what you want and update until you can't or don't want to anymore. Personally the only updates i get from the...

    How do I test RFID blocking devices?

    Ridge Wallet - https://ridgewallet.ca/ When you started this thread I couldn't remember the name. A few of the YouTubers that I watch have them as sponsors now and then. Seems legit.

    on steve's lost crypto

    Back in the day when Bitcoin was new and shiny I was quite heavily involved with the SETI@Home thing, made it to the top 1% in the world at one point. I had 10 PCs and 5 or 6 video cards looking for aliens 24/7 (is that a universal standard or is it 7/24 somewhere? ;)). At the time 1 BC was...

    How do I test RFID blocking devices?

    I'd try at a self-service gas pump. Side note: At Petro-Canada gas pumps if I use Apple Pay (connected to a VISA card) the pump starts to freak out. Non responsive and flickering lights around the display. It takes a minute or so for the pump to restart itself, or the worker inside does it.

    3-2-1 backup, what other media do you use besides HDDs?

    Let me clarify a little, I use Macrium Reflect to make the disk backups and SyncToy to do the automatic sync in that one PC. Just plain old OneDrive, I upload the files manually from the web interface. My thinking is that I have multiple copies of my backup files across three different sets of...

    3-2-1 backup, what other media do you use besides HDDs?

    My backups are on HDDs and OneDrive. The primary backup location is 3 6TB disks in a RAID5 setup, then synced to 2 2TB disks in RAID1. This is all in the same machine. Then I manually sync the backups to a different machine that has 2 1TB disks running on TrueNAS in a virtual machine using the...
