    COVID-19/Coronavirus Discussion Thread (see OP for useful links)

    Worth nothing that this was Gladys' response (NSW Premier) to Victoria asking for more vaccines during their previous outbreak: The arrogance is astounding.

    Yep, Mildura. Keeping a close eye on the exposure sights, I heard from a few friends that the infected person would've been everywhere around town whilst potentially infectious. Not their fault at all seeing as they were following the health advice, just unfortunate that symptoms developed much...

    COVID-19/Coronavirus Discussion Thread (see OP for useful links)

    I know it was bound to happen sooner or later, but somebody from my hometown in regional Victoria contracted Covid from Melbourne. Now there's a growing amount of exposure sites in the area. We'd had a small handful of cases in the past, but never any spread in the community. Apparently said...

    Windows... 10?!?

    A 20 minute boot time after a Windows Update sounds like your laptop has a regular hard drive. I highly recommend upgrading to an SSD, even the cheapest SSD will greatly outpace a hard drive for a boot drive (though you don't want to go too cheap). Upgrading to an SSD from a regular hard drive...

    Windows... 10?!?

    Do you have an SSD? Disabling fast-startup did make my boot time a tad slower, but it's still pretty quick for me, even though I "only" have a SATA SSD.

    https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-07-07/nsw-delta-variant-may-never-be-controlled/100273956 FFS, NSW had an outbreak recently that leaked into pretty much every other state in the country (with the Delta variant), went into a half-arsed lockdown, and now they've just... given up?? I have family...

    I believe the OG Edge was removed a while ago, the Chromium one is now the default.

    What games are you playing now?

    Started playing Euro Truck Simulator 2, did some multiplayer convoys with mates on the Beta and had a blast. Nothing quite like racing three trucks down a highway at top speed 😆

    For me personally, I think 65% may be the sweet spot - AutoHotKey macros have helped quite a bit, though dedicated arrow keys would be very handy for programming. Then again, can't really complain for $25. 😁

    COVID-19/Coronavirus Discussion Thread (see OP for useful links)

    The Delta variant of the virus had been floating around New South Wales for a few days and because of the premier's refusal to lockdown her own state, it's spread to most of the other states now -...

    Respawn Ninja RN61 (with Kaihl Browns) Saw this for $25 and couldn't resist. I originally intended to take this to the office (because of the compact size), but decided to keep this at home and swap it with my other WFH mech instead because of my smaller home desk. A packet of O-Rings so my...

    Liking the redesign so far (especially the new post editor), though I personally prefered having my watched threads on a separate page from the main forum view while logged in. Having the Subscribed Threads and Latest Posts sections as collapsible would be nice, though I don't know how much...

    Forza Horizon 5 Rumors Suggest Mexico Location

    I was hyped for a while but unless there's a bit of a shake-up in regards to the formula, I might not be picking up Horizon 5 at launch. As others have said in this subforum, a new location alone won't cut it for me - especially if a new game will have the same quality of car sounds, average...

    It's a bit hard to quantify, but I'm usually more generous with my servings of Vegemite than I am with Nutella. :lol:

    Heresy! You spread a thin layer of butter on toast, then slather a huge chunk of Vegemite over it. No other way to have it. But I do agree on Vegemite tasting better than Marmite.

    Poll: Chip shortages and gaming habits - single choice

    I'd love to upgrade my GPU so I can play my current games with better visuals and at a higher frame rate, but with the games I'm currently playing, I don't need more powerful hardware thankfully.

    Keep in mind this was uploaded by Sky News Australia, who have been frequently downplaying the severity of the virus and objecting against lockdowns. It's basically the Australian equivalent of Fox News (and I believe it's actually being rebranded that soon), run by the same owner of Fox...
