So you bought a new computer.Henk wrote: ↑Sat Jul 13, 2019 3:00 pmI think i will never buy anything again from "Media Markt".
Bought a new computer but I see I paid 99 euro for
"Power Service Altijd aan".
I did not ask for that.
Yes it was included in the package.
Being so foolish to buy that.
Looks like each encounter with a salesman in a computer shop cost you many euros.
Only buy stuff when in economic recession otherwise you pay too much.
Might be person in other computer shop did nothing but only cashed 50 euro.
Maybe better buy online if you can get online but I only had a dumb Phone. Who invented the word smart Phone ?? Many application don't work on smart Phone and sometimes they assume you have fingers as big as a needle. Not to talk about annoying advertisements.
Only when I'm in a very big hurry I buy sometimes from 'Media Markt'. Media Markt 'Ik ben toch niet gek', last week I needed a 3 meter cat6 patch cable they asked over 20 Euro's for it. At 'allekabels.nl' it costs just 3.99 Euro. You must be mad indeed when you buy something from 'Media Markt'.
Usually I built my PC's from parts, and I look at 'tweakers.net' to find the cheapest seller. It really makes a difference of hundreds of Euros for a standard PC, another advantage it that for each part you can choose the brand that you really like.
I hope Skipper will be back up and running soon.
Programming a chess engine from scratch is not so easy, a few weeks ago I decided to replace my Windows threads/synchronization with C++ threads/synchronization (because I also want to run on Linux), and now I'm experiencing random crashes, I can play like 20 games, no problem and at game 21 it will crash. I've been looking at it for 2 weeks, but I can't find the problem. Maybe I should switch to lazy SMP like many others do, it is not so easy to get YBW working without any data races. Of course you can lock everything, but that hampers performance.
Will be continued.
