    PC restarts when playing a game

    Run multiple instances of HCI Memtest, which is generally a better memtest than Memtest86 or Memtest86+ (though no software RAM tester can be perfect). Since you have 16GB of RAM, you should run 7 instances of 2047 MB each of HCI Memtest. If the RAM is bad, errors should start showing up in...

    The Farmer Who Built Her Own Broadband

    Meanwhile, here in the US, you can't set up your own broadband without lawsuits, lobbying for state-wide anti-DIY legislation, and the dismemberment of the FCC to prevent net neutrality, even if you're freaking Google with a bottomless corporate checkbook much less a farmer.

    Mass Effect 2 to be free for a limited time.

    Those Bioware points are the same price, 80 points per $1, and have never gone on sale for less. The "Mass Effect 2 DLC Collection" has only ME2 and just enough Bioware points to buy the four storyline DLCs (not the actual DLCs themselves) for $51, which is a bad deal. The "Mass Effect Trilogy"...
