    NV surround question

    You don't need to use bezel correction for iRacing as iRacing handles it. You just need to populate the monitor settings in the graphics tab. Also, make sure you have render screens seperately.

    Time to upgrade hardware and OS for media server/backup from WHS v1

    There's the ASRock series of boards. If you get a socketed board, you can combine with a low-end Xeon and ECC RAM. The Avoton boards might not meet your CPU needs.

    Bootable PCI-E SSD's for legacy hardware?

    Plextor M6e I think should work. I'm using one in a C226-chipset system as a bootable drive.

    I'm using 6x 6TB WD Reds in a Node304. You might want to use wdidle3 to disable the Intellipark timer before deploying them.

    SnapRAID help...

    I just setup a new server to replace a WHS v1 system. Storage is a 256GB PCIe SSD for the OS (Server 2012 R2 Essentials) and programs and 6x 6TB WD Reds for storage. I eliminated Storage Spaces as having a poor reputation for performance. I tested FlexRAID's tRAID but wasn't satisfied with...

    What was your 1st 3D video card ?

    Almost the same story for me, except I had a Sierra Screamin' 3D for playing the Papyrus sims.

    WHS V1 System Restore Not Working Asus Z87

    Office 2010 Beta 2 - Your Thoughts?

    The other advantage I realized exists with showing each document on the taskbar is the ability to Alt-Tab between them. Well, one example why you don't want that to happen is that you can't copy worksheets between workbooks opened in different instances.

    Office 2010 Beta 2 - Your Thoughts?

    That is because there is only one running instance of Excel.exe. The behavior you see is controlled by an option in Excel (Excel Options | Advanced | Display | Show all windows in the Taskbar). This allows you to switch workbooks via the Taskbar. You have to manually launch Excel to get...

    Forwarding the same port for the same service for 2 different machines on home LAN?

    If you are using WHS and your computers are joined to it, then you likely don't need to go through all this trouble. WHS allows you to RDP into any joined system from the WHS remote access web interface. You only need to forward a few ports to the WHS...

    VB6 Splash Screen leads to... where?

    If you don't like that method (which would eliminate assumptions of the project's start-up behavior), then I will next suggest right-clicking on ResumeStartUp and selecting Definition.

    My recommendation: use F8 to step into debug mode.
