Got a bargain of a new PC, now I just have to spend days installing things and such, fun but boring.

I'm sure you'll be coding your own lightshow, anyway!

It was an absolute bargain, the whole thing was cheaper than the gfx card! Those specs should last me about 15 years easy.

Bloody windows 11!!!

Create an image in psp, save it to c:\image.png

Go there with explorer, it isn't bloody there!
Try and load it in a different program, not there
Load it in psp, it's there again !!!

Save it to desktop, it's there, copy it to c, it's there,

Load it and save it again, it's gone!!!!

What the hell is going on?!

Gotta keep those users safe from themselves, I take it there's no right click options in file explorer, etc nowadays, hidden files and folders, etc, etc?

Bloody modern technology!

Got some nice 90 degree adapters for my hdmi and dp cables so they'd be all tidy and not stick out.
Suddenly, my wifi drops to 1.5mbit (from 240mbit). reinstalled drivers, switched everything off and on again etc. no change, wifi still <1.5mbit no matter what.
Remove the adapters and wollop! back to full speed!

Surely having the display cables closer to my wifi card couldn't cause such weirdness??! ...could it?

Perhaps they weren't magnetically shielded.
Though I'm often of the "Doesn't make a damned bit of difference when it's a digital signal" camp, there is always the possibility that, without proper shielding, the signals that are boosting through the cables are just enough to fudge up your wifi.

Do you have the option to add one of those wifi antennas to your system?

I gave it another try, just in case it was my imagination....

Could they be really dodgy dongles that are doing background stuff?

I've narrowed it down the the DP, the HDMI seems fine. What on earth could a 90 degree adapter do in the background though?

They can cram all kinds of tech into little things nowadays. Who knows what could be going on.

Maybe it's not shielded?

If you bend the cables yourself near the wifi antenna does it behave the same way? As it looks like the DP is touching the antenna with the adaptor...

If you use ethernet does it still affect your connection?
