In Topic: What games are people playing these days!?

When I was a kid playing Realmz I always thought it was neat Tim Phillips basically lived right up the road. Then Scott Adams ended up basically across the street and thats how I got signed copies of Adventureland.

Who's this wierdo asking for me to sign floppy disks......act naturally maybe he won't kill me >_>

In Topic: Reinstalling OS in single user mode

IMO the current range of iMacs is a BIG leap from the 2013 models. Graphic power (discrete radeon cards), CPU (Kaby Lake), connectivity (Thunderbolt 3 and USB 3 with USB-C and USB-A ports), Dem retina displays.

Nvidia support on macOS is severely lagging these days and the 2013s have Nvidia cards.  

I wouldn't spend 1/2 - 1/3 the cost of a 2017 iMac repairing a 2013 if I could swing it.

This discussion is very interesting. It's becoming increasingly clear that my next computer is an iMac 5K, or possibly a Hackintosh. I'll wait for the next iMac refresh and then decide. There's really no need for me to wait for the Mac Pro reveal any more, so I won't. (Whew!)

With the increasing reliance on specialized in-house hardware I'm not sure how much longer hackintoshes have for this world. Granted it currently exists to ensure the chain of trust for running on Apple hardware I can envision a future where both the OS and the hardware look for Apple signatures with little wiggle room.

Given so much of the special sauce involves existing in the Apple ecosystem I don't really see the value of a hackintosh other than rote system specifications, which Apple seems to be rectifying lagging specs (albeit slowly). My day relies on smoothly moving from phone-ipad-office mac with beeping and booping on Apple Watch (dat watch unlock) and AirPods (dat one click switch between mini and iPhone).
