    Exceeding 1M SATA 3.0Gbit/s?

    I'm in a situation where I'm considering using a few cables to make a series about 1.254M long (10in past spec) I can't find anything online where someone has actually experimented with this. Does anyone have any idea what will happen? Is this long enough to cause problems? What sort of...

    New build, two questions

    The dual PCIE slots and price originally attracted me to it, but I'll take a look at the boards you mentioned, thanks. The GA-EX38-DS4 looks to be in my price range and feature set. I'm going to end up buying a greater than 42" LCD TV running at 1080P. I currently have no idea what graphics...

    New build, two questions

    I'm building a new computer for myself and I'm a bit confused on a few topics. I'm planning on getting a Q6600 which as I understand it is a 64 bit processor. I was thinking of getting Asus P5W DH deluxe for my motherboard, but I'm a little retarded and can't tell if it supports 64 bit. I went...

    Adding two gigantic numbers [C++]

    I have two text files, they all have 0.[alot of numbers]. I need to add these two numbers. I don't have a good idea how to do this. I can think of a way to do it really inefficiently, but it won't do. I was thinking that I could load the files into an array, every 4 or so numbers would be a...

    Adding a 2nd video card

    I am looking to add a Radeon 7000 Mac Edition to my PowerMac G5 but I am not sure if it will work correctly. If I add a 7000, will my primary video card loose any performance? Will it disable some features to match the 2nd one? I know I am pretty poorly worded, so go ahead and ask for...

    Remote Administration

    With RemoteDesktop you can push packages down to each client. If you wanted a free solution, you could create a shell script to ssh into each box (Set up keys, then you won't need password auth) and do a softwareupdate -ia or something similar

    web server on a G4?

    Server will probably run fine, my buddy runs a low traffic server off a 400 something MHz G4. If you can afford Server 10Client, get it. It makes administration a breeze (Most of the time)

    Sharing a drive over the network

    Its is not a beautiful answer, but maybe create a hardlink to the root of the disk in a volume that shows up when connecting? I know there was a way to change mount points in NetInfo, but I cannot remember it off the top of my head. I will look around
