    The right glue for broken plastic chair

    Alright. I have some Loctite epoxy for plastic from an earlier project. Do you guys have any opinions on how these 3 ideas compare? http://www.homedepot.com/p/Loctite-0-85-fl-oz-Plastic-Epoxy-1360788/100371824 I figure I'll get one chance to do this right, and every attempt thereafter will...

    The right glue for broken plastic chair

    I'd gotten some good advice about adhesives and lubricants here before, so I thought I'd try again. I have a fancy Aeron chair that was broken in storage. The plastic seat pan frame is just busted. But I think it might be glue-able. And considering the replacement seat is $150 or so...

    how to tweak windows explorer?

    Dude. Thanks! That worked. I also discovered that you can add shortcuts to the "favorites" folder at the top of explorer and file dialogs, which does the same thing as the "places bar" without totally sacrificing the browsing tree. One question --- in the mydigital life article they have...

    moving OS drive to an identical computer

    Thanks for your responses. A little update- after 24 hours (it seems) the computer has been able to access the wifi. I'm wildly speculating that the router (dd-wrt) may have seen these mac changes as an attempt to spoof. Also, the clock was off by an hour. Not sure what that could have...

    moving OS drive to an identical computer

    well, assuming it can connect to the license server (which it cannot atm) then.... i would assume it would resolve itself. or would it? any ideas why the networking is failing? it connects to open hotspots but not secured networks. (or ethernet)

    how to tweak windows explorer?

    Navigating from the default logical directories - that windows thinks I ought to use - to the physical directories that I actually use, is pretty annoying. When a file dialog opens (open/save) how can I tell windows what directory to default to? Is there any way to use shortcuts or bring...

    moving OS drive to an identical computer

    So, if I move the OS drive to the same model computer, what problems should I expect? I've done this before with no problem, but there could be a security or licensing issue that wasn't present on older laptops or OSs. I'm doing this to determine if some issues (windows crashes when...

    windows out of memory error...lolwhut?

    Solving a problem usually doesn't give you an explanation why it occurred - in itself. For example, installing a 64-bit windows might appear to solve the problem.... but that gives no information about why it occurred. Maybe someone could have recognized the specific message I was getting...

    windows out of memory error...lolwhut?

    But that's not my question. I'm trying to find out *why* it's happening, not simply fix it. And... the reason I don't simply fix it is because this is one of my legacy machines which I wish to preserve. I want to have everything on it accessible in case I need something which didn't make...

    windows out of memory error...lolwhut?

    I don't think that's an issue on modern operating systems + processors. The MMU takes care of all that.

    Please help me choose the best hard drives for a ARECA RAID setup

    I would think that if there's a problem with your array then raid 3 will be much harder to recover from because it splits blocks up (afaik), rather than distributing whole blocks between the drives. That could also mess with advanced format drives. Do you know what performance you're trying...

    windows out of memory error...lolwhut?

    For example, maybe hybrid sleep is changing the VM behavior to try and page as much stuff out to disk as possible?

    windows out of memory error...lolwhut?

    Firefox isn't using that much memory, it is simply the app that's currently trying to allocate beyond what windows feels it should have. The issue is the total memory consumption. I'm looking for more of an explanation along the lines of windows memory management behavior (by design or...
