Re: Looking to upgrade keyboard, unsure about mechanical key

Or a cherry G80-3000.

That said, mine seems to be having usb controller issues and often requires an unplug-replug. Probably about 3 years old now...

Re: Help me with this build :(

The G3258 is a K series CPU, ie it is multiplier unlocked. You should be able to overclock from 3.2 to 4ghz with a moderately decent cooler and a small additional voltage. 4.4 is achievable on SOME samples if you're willing to push the voltage. For reference, the Celeron 1840 is clocked at 2.8 ghz a...

Re: Website outage

One additional problem which has been picked up. "Remember me" function is no-longer working, as PHP sessions were used to achieve this, and requests are now load balanced across servers.

Re: Website outage

It was coded this way to avoid CSRF restrictions. Directory structure is very different on the new hosting. It's on the "Too fix" list

Website outage

Hi All,

We've moving between hosting packages tomorrow. The sites (Website and Forums) will be suspended a little before 9am, and will likely be back up around lunchtime.

Re: Ticket prices have increased by £5

There haven't *really* been any speed limits There are a few things we've done over the years to try and make the internet usable when there are too many users sharing too little bandwidth - The original steam protocol didn't allow caching, as a result we rate limited port 27030 to prevent accidenta...

Re: Ticket prices have increased by £5

No, they've gone from one of the best ISPs to overpriced and over QOSed since the hall got ASDL (The money we were paying to get an unlimited service for the weekend...). I recall it being Zen, so no download limits, no QOS.

Online Payments

Hi All, As part of the changes to the staff, MikeTheGreek is now taking payments for the LAN party. Unfortunately, it would seem that the Westlan website loves me, and won't let go. The scripts are erroring when paypal sends a payment notification, and nobody is getting marked as paid automatically....

Re: Making Ethernet Cables

The cheap Chinese made 9v battery + LED cable testers work quite well. I'd rather use that than have to plug in cable and switch. I did notice the other day that my TP-Link Semi-managed switch does cable diagnostics and can identify the faulty pair, and which end of the cable the break is on (Near o...

Re: Overdue Budget Upgrade

MSI Z170A Gaming Pro. Mostly as it was the cheapest available board with MSATA, an Intel network card and DDR4. (Watch out for the cheap versions, they're DDR3. IMHO that has no place on a Z series chipset!)
