    Fallout 4

    load times are really slow for me, 20-30 seconds (occasionally more) when fast traveling, even 10-20 with the black screen for going in/out doors. win8.1 4790k/16GB ram/crucial SSD/980, so not a wimpy system. Not sure why its so slow. Its annoying.

    Waterproof phones

    The just announced moto g 2015 (3rd gen) is rated at IPX7, so 30min@1meter immersion. I wouldn't say thats water proof, but should be fine if you drop it in water or something.

    Is copying steam games from one computer to another no longer possible?

    the backup/restore functionality works pretty well, without messing around with the files. It does take time & space for the backup to be created however.

    Understanding Spam Scripts periodically posts an example analysis of some server side scripts. There are different ways to obfuscate/minify the files, so it takes some practice/expertise to figure out how to decode them properly.

    Hash Functions/Tables

    A Hash function takes any input and reduces it to a fixed (smaller) hashvalue in a repeatable way. It could be complicated like MD5. It could be as simple as odd/even. oddhash(x) = x % 2; A keyspace of 2 is very small and will yield lots of collisions(items with the same hashvalue). Which is...

    GTX 970 SLI or single 980 for 1440p gaming

    970's are the cheaper &faster choice, but then you can run into SLI issues. If you have the money and just want reliability, go for a 980.

    How to boot from a cdrom drive connected to a pci sata card?

    The option rom for the sata card would be what configures the booting. In your motherboard bios/uefi you'll need to look for any settings to enable/disable option roms. Then you'll need to get into the rom config for the card and set that up, to boot to the right device. This should be done...

    Trying to catch Bittorrent users with Wireshark...

    as mi7chy says, you'd mirror a port carrying all the traffic to the external internet, or out of your area off to the external connection, all the traffic will go through the one port.

    Existing coaxial/BNC/S-Video camera -- possible to give RTSP stream?

    there are svideo capture cards for computers, with appropriate software you can get it onto the network. I don't know if there are any dedicated network devices to do this.
