    Automatic FTP Backup / Sync Software

    Not sure if this is the right place for this thread (please move if it isn't), but a recent power outage at my hosting provider has left some of my data unobtainable. Besides looking for a new host (these guys used to be good). I'm curious if anyone has any software recommendations for doing a...

    Overall Forum Performance Declining?

    Anyone else noticing a decline in refresh rate for the forums? It started happening a few weeks ago (same time the "loading graphic" started appearing in the upper right hand corner of the window), but I assumed it was just my phone. But I've now had the chance to test it on three systems (one...

    Evernote v. Keep

    Anyone familiar with Google Keep? I originally used G Notebook (discontinued) and ported to Evernote. But recently I keep hitting the 60mb upload limit late in the month. I don't think their service is worth $60/yr, when I barely use my low free amount. Enter Google Keep. Been playing with...

    Evernote-like File Management Software?

    Anyone know of any file management systems that can be utilized either by server or secondary app that can link a file on a standard structure (ie: Shared Folder) with a database (for tagging/searching)? I can imagine it'd work similar to Evernote without the uploading. I searched, but...

    Need a new sound card ..

    So my X-Fi XtremeGamer-Pro-Fatality-ultra-deluxe-semi-decent edition died and I'm relatively tired of replacing Creative soundcards (I have a stack of 4 in my drawer of dead/replacements - they seem to last about 2-3 years tops). Any good recommendations? It's been years since I've been in the...

    WHS V1 Duplication issues (ie: it doesn't)

    Anyone run into this before? I have just installed (about a week ago) a copy of WHS V1 PP1 on my server box. Everything went smooth and got all setup. It's all running good. Except that duplication never takes place, demigrator.exe does nothing but take 12megs of RAM (no CPU time). I've toggled...

    Going Green - From HTPC to WHPC

    I did a search and read many threads, but wanted to get some better answers. Looking to lower my Vegas power bill. Changing my HTPC to a Whole House PC Server. It will not play media itself, but rather sit in a closet and sulk. Right now, it idles at 95W with a 780G mobo and a AMD X3 (Rana)...

    [Warm] Novint Falcon - $99 @ B&M Fry's Locations

    Came across this in the store. Not sure if they're trying to clear stock for a new model, or completely. But this is the instore price. About the cost of an expensive mouse if you can get one. http://shop2.frys.com/product/5436119?site=sr:SEARCH:MAIN_RSLT_PG Didn't see this posted yet...

    Store Suggestions - Lian-Li V1000/V1200

    Alright, I normally wouldn't post a thread like this. But I can't seem to find any decent answers in searches (both here and pricegrabber). Basically, I'm looking for a Lian-Li V1000B PlusII w/ Window. Or Lian-Li V1200B PlusII w/ Window. I've checked Performance-PC's, but after shipping...

    WMP11 Library Question ..

    This may seem like an odd question. But it's got a specific role for me. I've tried numerous Googles/Forum searches to no avail. Does anyone know (or is this even a feature) of a way to create a shortcut to launch a specific Library in WMP11? For example, there's: Music Pictures Videos...

    Video Stuttering .. video card?

    Sorry for my N00bness on the subject, I've read many tutorials and threads, now I'm just looking for opinions. Well, I recently (had an extra box) decided to do what I've wanted to do for a long time, and that was build an HTPC box. So I sold the Series2 TiVO (was tired of the $12.95) and went...

    X800 (XT) PCI-e owners, I need some quick help.

    Bought an OEM card, it didn't come with the PCI Express power cable. So I'm going to fabricate one. I just need to know which of the three (here's a picture for the ATI one on their website) do what. Example: Red (square in pic) = 12v + etc etc. Any help is appreciated. I wasn't able to...

    Possibly ditching TiVo for HTPC ...

    Well, my TiVo got sick over the weekend. So I ganked the 120gig Maxtor I had in there and ran PowerMax today. PowerMax confirms that it is failing and I need to contact Maxtor with the numbers to get it RMA'd under warranty. To add insult to injury, this is what I see: Y3JW9D4E - ATA -...

    Problem w/ Video Card ... RMA time?

    Battled all day with this thing. I just finished building my second rig (see lower part of sig). Had all the parts, but didn't take the time to simply install XP. So, after completing it, everything worked great. I go in, install DX9, install the latest Nvidia drivers. Reboot, and the thing...

    USB issue = XP Issue?

    Not sure where to put this. It could be a mainboard issue, or an operating system issue. But anyways, my problem consists of everytime I plug in a USB device, the system doesn't detect it (it used to pop up and say "new device found" in the corner). That same device, will automaticly be...

    Lapping utilities ..

    Well my new Swiftech waterblocks aren't at all shiny. So I want to lap them. But I'm having a serious issue tracking down 600grit sandpaper. Home Depot and Lowes only carry 220grit and lower in my area. What stores would carry this in the states, anyone know? OnlineIndustrialSupply.com has...

    Peltiers w/ Watercooling .. opinions, comments, answers?

    Yes, I checked the stickies, and since I haven't seen any of these come across the overclocking forum, I figured it'd be safe to ask. I've read up on this while at work and have seen many guides, now I'm intrigued. Sooo, here we go, I have some questions regarding peltiers, not watercooling...
