    SH Script in OSX to Open and Close Program?

    Trying to set up a command file that will open a program, wait for X seconds, and then close the program. Ideally, I am trying to create a loop that will do it for a specified number of iterations. Any ideas? I've got a test file that works great at opening one instance of a program (just a...

    US Navy just patented a very compact fusion reactor.

    No, we won't. Water separation requires more energy than can be produced from the hydrogen.

    Sold 1080ti new owner has black screen

    Not a W10 issue if you can't get the POST screen to show with the video card. If the CMOS was cleared, how did you pass back into windows? There should be a fault that prevents boot without hitting F1/2. If it didn't do that, CMOS may not have been cleared. What card was in the system prior...

    Sold 1080ti new owner has black screen

    1. Clear CMOS 2. During boot hit Del/whatever the enter BIOS key is 3. See if it dispays BIOS When installing a new card, the first time it boots it likely won't display anything until after POST- so we need to confirm that the motherboard is seeing/using the card before jumping to a WIndows issue

Reboot Now you don't have to agree to any terms!

    Apple to get rid of butterfly switches.

    Nah, I have a dislike for Apple that probably rivals most on these forums, but the Macbook and the iphone are both solid pieces of hardware.

    Cousin's PC will not turn on, trying to diagnose the cause.

    Casting my vote for motherboard or ......drumroll....faulty power switch on the case. As DrLobotomy suggests, the best start is to breadboard the PC. Put the motherboard on a piece of cardboard, plug in 8 pin and 24 pin connectors with a single stick of ram and the cpu only. Jump the power...

    Recover RAID'd files?

    Hey guys- really appreciate the help. Got the HD dock in the mail yesterday, plugged in the individual drives and could read the files. Seems like the hanging in post was due to unhealthy drives.

    Recover RAID'd files?

    Ah ok, did not know that. Strangely, I can't get this machine to boot from a linux live USB drive or that would have been my first step. Going to have to scrounge together a working CD burner to get an actual disk made (gasp!). But, sounds like I'll be able to just view, copy, and wipe- so...

    Recover RAID'd files?

    Copy all- my usb drive adapter comes on Wednesday so I'll check it out. Had the same thoughts on the 750 and I'll try that one first as a standalone. Trying one of the 500gb alone in the desktop returns a "ntldr not found" error right past the DMI line I mentioned. Only 1 drive will do this-...

    Recover RAID'd files?

    Hey guys, have done a bunch of searching and haven't yet been able to figure this one out. I have a bunch of old desktops sitting here (got them in a big lot), and one in particular has an old AMD dual core AM2+ chip and 3 HDs (2x500gb and 1x750gb). Upon first boot, I notice that the PC has...

    Bitcoin and Money Laundering on Trial California

    It is an industry. Look at AMD and Nvidia profits. Look at the cost of the electricity that you brought up- that means profits for power companies and probably more jobs. Not sure how this is any more harm to the environment than ICE cars, consumer use of electricity, or anything else that is...

    Bitcoin and Money Laundering on Trial California

    The world shouldn't want any $200B+ industry to crash. As an investor, what happens next? You get scared and pull in all your investments in to be more secure, which sparks other people doing the same, which is not good. Build more solar panels and windmills.
