    Time to Upgrade

    Hey all, I'm so out of the loop on new phones, and have literally no idea where to start. I'm currently on a Google Pixel 2. Honestly, I LOVE the phone. I haven't had a single "major problem" with the phone to date, and I would love if I could just replace it with a modern version of the dame...

    ASUS UHD B286HK Lag?

    Hey guys, figured I'd see if you guys had any input for me. I've got an ASUS UHD4K2K (Model B286HK) that my brother hated, so he gave it to me. He hated it because it was "laggy" and borderline unusable. Right now, I couldn't find a Displayport to Displayport cord, so I'm connected via HDMI...

    Can I Play It? The Division.

    Simply put, I'm wondering if my old hardware is good enough for this game... I have a couple of friends who are playing it on their store-bought laptops, but according to the listed system reqs, I'm not so sure my desktop will handle it (even though I'm fairly certain I'll be ok). The system...

    I'm having a problem on my desktop... I just installed Linux Mint 17.2, and Steam (steam-launcher) is available on the Software Manager, and also natively in the repos. Steam installs just fine, updates, runs perfectly.... But I can't install any games. It constantly hangs at "Creating game...

    Win 7 CD Key is "Flagged" and MS won't help...

    So, the other day, my laptop started asking me to activate (which I thought was weird, because it took my CD upon installation without a problem). So, I went through the activation process last night. It went to the "Installation ID" process, which I did via their automated phone system. It told...

    FAH CPU Percentage Not Changing on SMP

    On all of my uniprocessor rigs, when I change the CPU usage percentage, the core reacts accordingly. On my SMP machines, if I change the CPU percentage, the client does not change. I NEED to change it on these machines. My server CAN run at 100% all the time, but I really don't feel like...

    Ubuntu - Auto Allow VNC Connection on reboot?

    Right now, I have a few computers set up in my room, but only 2 monitors. Therefore, I typically connect via VNC to use these computers, which works great on my local network. My problem is that, after Ubuntu restarts, it requires the password for the login keyring before it will allow a VNC...

    Windows 7 Desktop Icons > Dock

    Let me start off by saying: I HATE desktop icons. Cluttered desktops annoy the crap out of me. Therefore, I try to keep mine as clean as possible. However, this is often not possible because I use my desktop space to store, organize, and sort on-going, but temporary work. If I download...

    Photoshopping help

    So, I took a picture a few weeks ago in panorama mode on my camera. I didn't have a tripos when I took the picture, so when I lined up the images, they did not line up exactly. Therefore, I ended up with 2 vertical lines in the image that were slightly darker than the rest of the image. I have...

    Melted it!

    So, I've known for a month now that my rear exhaust fan was going bad in my case. Every now and then it would start to hum, I'd slow it down with my finger, release it, and it would spin back up in balance and be fine for a couple days. Well, last night, I'm playing some L4D2 and my comp...

    Text Ads

    I know there are plenty of people complaining about the text ads, but I just want to begin by saying that I have NO problem with them on the whole, even in GenMay. The ONLY part about them that drives me crazy is when they hijack page titles. For example, every single time, it hijacks the...

    Palm OS vs Windows Mobile

    I've had a Palm Centro for a few months with Palm OS installed. I've loved it, and it has worked excellently for me. Today, I dropped my phone, accidentally, from 6 inches onto my bed. Luck would have it that it was attracted to the small exposed piece of metal frame that supports the...

    No Video Output

    I dug out my old ASRock 939 Dual-SATA2 board and threw it back together after a long hiatus. A few months ago, I decommissioned the system as my main rig and tried to set it up with an old AGP video card. This failed because I had no video output and assumed that my video card was dead. I now...
