Last month I posted a short video on how to fix the Corrupted Memory #0 error in FortNite. The solution was simple: uninstall the MSI Dragon Center and MSI SDK software. I had no idea how widespread that problem was in the FortNite community. That short video got 5,000+ views. In this video I’ll talk about the error message and the two solutions to resolve the issue.Read more “2 PROVEN Solutions For Corrupted Memory #0 Error In FortNite”
AMC Theaters in Silicon Valley reopened for three weeks last November. During that time, I saw “Tenet,” “Goldfinger,” and “Freaky.” When AMC Theaters reopened last week, I saw “Raya and The Last Dragon.” Here are the three biggest surprises between then and now.Read more “Watching Movies Indoors At AMC Theaters Again”
When mounting the fans to the radiator of an AIO liquid cooler, they should fit tight against each other to maximize airflow. If a case has fan mounts inside the front panel, the flat metal frame will be between the fans and the radiator. Unless you have the Cougar MX330-G ATX case. The frame inside the front panel has raised vent holes and recessed screw holes. I used 20-year-old motherboard standoffs to mount the radiator to the back and the fans to the front of the frame. That ¼-inch gap between the fans and the radiator allows air to escape and blow back out the mesh front panel. It’s time to weatherstrip that gap!Read more “How to Weatherstrip Your AIO Fans for Better Airflow”
Fry’s Electronics has finally shut down. At the stroke of midnight on Wednesday, February 24, 2021, the website made it official with a front-page memo. After 36 years in business, Fry’s Electronics ceased operations for 31 stores in nine states. Management blamed online shopping and COVID-19 for this sudden but not unexpected shutdown.
But online shopping and COVID-19 didn’t kill this zombie retailer.
An earlier announcement took place the day before. Planning documents filed with the city would turn the San Jose headquarters store into a tech campus. If you watched my previous videos, real estate deals resulted in store closures in the last 18 months. This real estate deal was so big that it shut down the entire company.Read more “The REAL ESTATE DEAL That SHUT DOWN Fry’s Electronics”
Last year I posted two videos about the Be Quiet Pure Loop AIO 240mm Liquid Cooler. The first video I had to mount the AIO with the fans on the inside of the Cougar MX330-G ATX case. The long screws that came with the AIO weren’t long enough for the recessed screw holes in the front panel. The second video I used 20-year-old motherboard spacers to mount the AIO and the fans in the front of the case. Mounting the fans in front frees up space inside the case and RGB fans can shine through the front mesh panel. Since Be Quiet doesn’t make RGB fans, I got the Phanteks Halo Lux RGB Fan Frames to go on top of them. I’ll compare the RGB lighting on the white Shadow Wings 2 fan against the black Pure Wings 2 fan that comes with the AIO.Read more “Phanteks Halo Lux RGB Fan Frames for Be Quiet! Pure Loop AIO”

The last movie I saw at the Capitol Drive-In in San Jose, CA, was The Black Stallion Returns in 1983. My baby niece and I were sitting in the front seats while my brother and his wife were making out in the backseat. Family values in the 1980s. On Christmas Eve last month, I saw Monster Hunter at the West Wind Capitol Drive-In. As the French would say, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”Read more “Monster Hunter At The West Wind Capitol Drive-In”
