    Coil whine with my PSU

    It seems to be an issue with that line of Seasonic-made PSUs. I went through 3 Corsair HX units that had obnoxious whine years ago before I gave up and picked up an Enermax Infiniti. I most recently bought the highly-regarded 850w Kingwin Lazer platinum PSU which is pleasantly quiet...

    Freaky Microsoft Piracy Video

    If Microsoft really cared about counterfeit software, they would crack down on all the high quality counterfeits being sold on ebay by power sellers who are either ignorant or indifferent. I just did an ebay search for "MS Office Professional", and the very first result is counterfeit based...

    160 Billion Planets in the Milky Way?

    I've been watching 'Bashar' videos on YouTube, which consist of 'channeled' information that is quite fascinating to me in its apparent logic about aspects of reality and the universe. Bashar claims to be a human/alien hybrid and a 'contact specialist' from our perceived future. :D He says...

    Cosair's Mice and Keyboards delayed

    I never liked the WASD position -- too limited. Make a YGHJ keyboard and you'll have at least one sale. :)

    Quadro 4000 and GTX580 together?

    What software are you using the Quadro for? Not all CAD programs require the specialized Quadro drivers to perform properly. You should compare the performance and function of the software between the two drivers. There's the option of dual-booting another instance of Windows, to have one...

    16% of Cell Phones Have Poop on Them

    I made the assumption that if you're using a public restroom to do #2, then you must have life-threatening, explosive diarrhea, which explains the shit on the walls. :)

    The Classic Foot Flush. It doesn't make much difference if you're still handling the toilet seat, the door knob, the tissue roll, your clothing, etc. :)

    16% of Cell Phones Have Poop on Them

    If your hands are getting 'dirty' when you wipe, then maybe you're not using enough tissue! But yeah, I always assume everything has shit on it and act accordingly. :) I don't like to buckle up before doing a preliminary wash. I use different parts of my hand and make as little contact as...
