    What I see is that everybody wants 2-factor authentication if the site has even remotely sensitive information. It's near-universal if money is involved, as with banks, stocks, credit cards. I...

    Good point. Check your spam and trash email folders. Also, if you (like me, for one email account) have another redirection along the line, you may have to check the scanner for THAT email as well....

    What I've seen, and experienced is: NEVER defrag a SSD. They simply don't need it, and the defrag process, EVEN ONCE, significantly reduces the life of the SSD (which is usually specified in TB...

    niknak: the weeklies are usually pretty stable, seldom have major problems. However, they do break saves. Usually saves from one of the last few weeklies will still work (and when you save again it's...

    If you don't want to wait, consider downloading from Jim Ross' site (all the unstable and many of the weeklies). Install would consist of simply extracting the zip to whatever directory (outside of...

    AMD drivers don't support MSTS; they should work with Open Rails.

    nVidia works with both.

    GTX 730 still is (barely) in mainstream driver support. Would work fine for MSTS. Would be marginal for...

    Would it be possible to capture the sound from a pass-by video and edit that?
