  1. Thanks! I wasn't too happy about giving up the advantage to that P-38 but luckily he couldn't really get a bead on me. When reviewing the track he tried to bail out right after the 109 attacked him but was going too fast and ended up just ditching it. I was very surprised the Spitfire chased me for so long. Hopefully this next weekend I will be able to fly again.
  2. you hit him so hard he changed colors!
  3. I did a double check of the BIOS and found the onboard sound option disabled. Should have been more thorough the first time through! Anyway, her audio is working and I have my flight sim rig geared up and ready to rock. Downloading updates now
  4. I was contemplating a PCIe soundcard since there are a couple of unused slots. Oh this wasn't for "me" in a round-a-bout way. I have my gaming PC. It was just a PC we found online for $300. Could hardly argue with the price. As far as I know I checked every menu and option of the BIOS and I found nothing for onboard audio. I checked the BIOS version and there is only one version newer than what it has. I may end up trying to uninstall the graphics card, delete the drivers, and then try to see if I can get everything working through the mobo before reinstalling the graphics
  5. So my Fiancé just got a desktop PC because a coworker needled her a little bit about using a laptop for her home office (she is a software developer). She bought the PC on craigslist and it's a mid-range gaming PC with a ASUS Crossfire V Formula - Z motherboard, 8GB RAM, GTX660 2GB video card, and a pair of SSD all running Windows 10. Everything seemed fine and dandy until we tried to use the audio jacks for her headset. Plugging the headset into the front jacks did nothing, and plugging them into the rear did nothing either. I looked into the sound settings and could only find audio for t
  6. I worked with a guy who used to use apostrophe's whenever a word was plural. Drove me nut's.
  7. The thing about AI turning against humanity is that it is possible and even likely. Maybe inevitable, and if so it will ljkely come from the defense sector. AI currently lacks two things that will be necessary for that to happen, though. These are things we have innately: the desire to survive and reproduce. The desire to survive will be provided to AI by combat, as it will be programmed to consider its survival lest it wantonly meander through a minefield or into a kill zone. Remember that you don't win a war by dying for your country, you win a war by making the other dumb bastard d
  8. Eventually air dominance aircraft will be entirely designed and piloted by AI with minimal human oversight. I can envision a B-52 "mothership" loaded with 4 unmanned stealth, supersonic, 20+g capable, AESA radar equipped, air to air missile loaded air superiority drones connected via a secure data link to a cloud-like data system feeding a central AI that identifies and prioritizes threats and then gives specific commands to each individual drone in real time to eliminate enemy equipment in the most effective and efficient manner. It will be impossible for an aircraft with a human pilot to c
  9. nvm I got it. turns out when I cloned my 250GB SSD to a 500GB one it copied the volume size so I had to expand it to use the full storage space available.
  10. trying to D/L it right now. failed to update twice so far
  11. Those Montemayor videos are legendary. I love the ones on the Coral Sea and Guadalcanal.
  12. I agree with Moxy. Once you removed the USB connection the problem went away you have isolated your cause. Either find a way to replace these USB ports on your PC tower and the board that goes with them or use another USB hub. You could take those USB ports out and examine them for obvious shorts as well and see if you can eliminate it that way, or just cut and safe off the wires to the broken USB port. Lots of ways to go about it but I'm very confident that your mother board is fine.
  13. When you have a good design, you have a good design. I'd imagine one could say the same about the F-15 and F-16 designers, and most certainly the designers of the B-52!
  14. It's always a heart sinking feeling to hear silence... Hopefully the engine can be rebuilt. As for calling 4-0 Charlie lol the Mercedes I had before I got the Challenger had a water temp gauge in it that read 40c, and yes I definitely did "call 4-0- charlie" in my head to myself when it came up to temp.
