    External Display for Surface Pro 2

    Perhaps a bit of an odd request but I need some help finding a decent external display for my Surface Pro 2. The problem is with how Windows 8.1 renders. My understanding is that it renders using the highest dpi display (SP2) causing text and what not to appear blurry on the lower quality...

    SimCity V (2013) - screens/artwork and information

    I was actually wondering about this, is that true, can someone else confirm? I guess it doesn't matter I can't even play the game for 15 minutes without it crashing. I've started at least 5 cities and within 15 minutes it crashes and I when I try to load them it says no cities created.

    Buying a Camera - Review Overload

    I hate to be 'that guy' but I really need help buying a camera. For a bit of background the nicest camera we have is an iPhone 4, so that tells you pretty much all you need to know. Anyway, we're getting ready to have our first kid and my wife's blog is picking up a lot of steam so she feels...

    After VM hypervisor crashed (took down fs with it) -- now network shares inaccessible

    Any chance you are running DFS? Is that service started? Check inheritance, I've seen some weird stuff happen when a file server doesn't go down cleanly. Edit: Maybe I should read the OP....scratch the inheritance option. On the root of G: can you create a new share and share that out...

    SRM Setup Issues

    Wow, thanks for the offer! I was able to get it taken care of, but I do appreciate that. Today on a whim I went through the 'break connection' and started over...it worked! One question for everyone - is it safe to use domain accounts with SRM? We have 1 physical DC and the rest are...

    SRM Setup Issues

    No the sites are actually in the same building and then will be connected via private fiber (no VPN or NAT) once it moves to production. I've got a call scheduled with VMware but they keep pushing it back :mad:
