For Sale – Budget Gaming PC

Hi folks, after building this rig while a friend was around for a couple weeks, it’s now just collecting dust and doing not a lot other than watching Netflix. It’s a nice clean system (or will be before sent out) and has no issues. The specs are as follows.

-Corsair Spec-03 Gaming Case, there are some marks on the case and window due to this being stored for a while, otherwise it’s absolutely fine.
-AMD FX 4100 Quad Core @ 3.6Ghz
-Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo CPU Cooler
-ASUS M5A78L-M LX3, this was purchased brand new from Amazon a few weeks back and supports up to the FX 8*** series
-4GB (2x2GB) Generic 1333Mhz RAM
-Sapphire HD 7850 2GB, still capable for 1080p medium gaming, performs about on average with my R9 270 that I use in my daily system and I can play most games with no real issues
-Antec 520w Neo Eco Power Supply, this is a semi modular I believe, however I never got any of the additional cables with it, you can buy these on ebay cheap enough if you need more PCI-e or SATA power
-500GB Seagate (pretty sure) 7200rpm hard drive, not much in the way of gaming performance, but performs okay as a boot drive, SSD’s are cheap enough these days
-ASUS DVD-RW Drive, nothing to shout about these days, but needed to back some stuff up to disk, so that’s in there

This is an ideal system for someone looking to buy their kids a cheap Fortnite machine, but it has no issues playing other, more premium games. I’ve attached a picture of a Heaven Benchmark on the High Preset @ 1080p to show it’s performance.

Everything works as it should, and this also has a genuine copy of Windows 10 on it which will be a fresh install.

Sorry for the messy pictures, moving things around and clearing out what I don’t need/want anymore. The PC will be cleaned off fully for postage/collection.

Looking for £170 posted on this, local collection is welcome of course (PE25 address).

Bank transfer only please as I don’t use PayPal, cash on collection is fine also.

Price and currency: £170
Delivery: Delivery cost is included within my country
Payment method: Bank Transfer
Location: Skegness
Advertised elsewhere?: Advertised elsewhere
Prefer goods collected?: I have no preference

Data guru living with ALS modernizes industries by typing with his eyes – Stories

The couple remodeled their two-story townhouse near Guatemala City so he had everything he needed on the first floor and didn’t have to navigate stairs. Otto learned to use a trackball mouse with his foot to type with an on-screen keyboard. But it was cumbersome, and he needed Pamela nearby to move the cursor from one corner of his two 32-inch screens to another as he navigated Excel spreadsheets and Power BI dashboards.

A tracheotomy was put in his throat to help him breathe, taking away his limited speech and increasing his isolation. But when Knoke, who spends two hours a day reading blogs and researching, saw his friend Juan Alvarado’s post about the new Eye Control feature in Windows 10, he let loose with his version of a shout and immediately ordered the Tobii Eye Tracker hardware to use with the software.

A man sits in a wheelchair while four women and two men crouch around him, touching his shoulders and arms and smiling.
Otto Knoke with his wife, daughters and sons-in-law. Photo provided by Pamela Knoke.

Alvarado, who met Knoke as a database consultant working on the ATM system Knoke had implemented, hadn’t known about Knoke’s condition until he suddenly saw him in a wheelchair one day. And fittingly, Eye Control itself began with a wheelchair.

Microsoft employees, inspired by former pro football player Steve Gleason, who had lost the use of his limbs to ALS, outfitted a wheelchair with  electronic gadgets to help him drive with his eyes during the company’s first Hackathon, in 2014. The project was so popular that a new Microsoft Research team was formed to explore the potential of eye-tracking technology to help people with disabilities, leading to last year’s release of Eye Control for Windows 10.

Knoke said it was “a joy” to learn how to type with his eyes, getting the feel of having sensors track his eye movements as he navigated around the screen and rested his gaze on the elements he wanted to click. Using Eye Control and the on-screen keyboard, he now can type 12 words a minute and creates spreadsheets, Power BI dashboards and even PowerPoint presentations. Combined with his foot-operated mouse, his productivity has doubled. He plans to expand his services to the U.S., where he spent six years studying and working in the 1970s. He no longer relies on his wife’s voice, because Eye Control offers a text-to-speech function as well.

“It was frustrating trying to be understood,” Knoke said in the email interview. “After a few days of using Eye Control I became so independent that I did not need someone to interact with clients when there were questions or I needed to explain something. We have a remote session to the client’s computer, and we open Notepad and interact with each other that way.”

His wife and his nurse had learned to understand the sounds he was able to make, even with the tracheotomy restricting his vocal chords. But now he can communicate with his three grown daughters, his friends and all his customers.

A man lies in a reclining chair, while a younger woman sits in a chair next to him. Both are smiling and looking at a computer screen with a Spanish phrase typed on it.
Using a foot-operated mouse, Eye Control for Windows 10 and the text-to-speech function, Otto Knoke is able to communicate with his family — including his daughter, seen here — as well as with clients.

“Now when our children visit, he can be not just nodding at what they say, but he can be inside the conversation, too,” Pamela Knoke said. “He always has a big smile on his face, because he’s got his independence back.”

He’s also started texting jokes to friends again.

“It’s kind of like it brought my friend back, and it’s amazing,” Alvarado said. “Otto told me that for him, it was like eye tracking meant his arms can move again.”

Being able to text message with Eye Control has helped his business as well.

Grupo Tir, a real-estate development and telecommunications business in Guatemala, hired Knoke for several projects, including streamlining its sales team’s tracking of travel expenses with Power BI.

“Working with Otto has been amazing,” said Grupo Tir Chief Financial Officer Cristina Martinez. “We can’t really meet with him, so we usually work with texts, and it’s like a normal conversation.

“He really has no limitations, and he always is looking for new ways to improve and to help companies.”

For Sale – Transcend JetDrive Lite 130 256gb – MacBook Storage Expansion Card

Here is my trusty 256gb Transcend JetDrive Lite 130, purchased a couple of years ago. Was full of media, but accessed rarely. Only selling because I have upgraded to a 2017 MacBook Pro. I’d keep it if the MacBook Pro had an SD card slot it would fit in.

Transcend’s JetDrive Lite 130 expansion card allows you to give your MacBook Air’s available storage space a BIG boost with ease. If it were not for these cards, you would have to buy an expensive second hand uncommon type of SSD and take your precious MacBook Air apart to fit it, and re-install MacOS. Trust me, I know… I upgraded my 128gb MacBook Air to 256gb with a second hand SSD at great expense and difficulty, before I found this. Keeping the original SSD and using a big expansion card is far more cost effective.

It’s really neat – sits almost flush – so close to flush it’s tricky to take out if you bite your fingernails! It’s basically a special shortened SDHC memory card that is just the right length for the 2010-2015 MacBook Air.

Advertised on eBay at a higher price.

Price and currency: 130
Delivery: Delivery cost is not included
Payment method: PayPal (Goods & Services), Bank Transfer or Cash.
