    Can't recall... but did that comparison of those drives mention that you need a NVMe capable motherboard to take advantage of that 960 drive?

    Seriously???
    You can't use the newer NVMe drives for the o.s. in an older board that is not NVMe compatable, the purchaser would be wasting his money if he did.
    There's still a bunch of X99, and Z79 boards with M.2 slots that are only sata III speeds, you put an NVMe drive into that slot for the o.s. drive and windows will not boot, I'm not sure if you could load windows on it.
    If you bought one of these NVMe drives and can't use it cuz your board isn't compatible, please let me know Tom

    @Joe C: Thanks for the heads-up. I just got an update for Firefox. I wonder if it's for this particular Zero-Day.

    From Joe C's link:D
    UPDATE: Mozilla has patched this zero-day with the release of Firefox 50.0.2 and 45.5.1 ESR. The Tor Project has released Tor Browser 6.0.7 to fix the issue on its side. The original article is below.

    And thanks for bring back your good Avatar :clap::clap:
