    Lowest Capacity USB Thumb Drive that you own?

    At work, I came across this random no-name thumb drive. I formatted it and I was pretty shocked at its capacity - 256MB. I thought I had read it wrong, or maybe it had hidden partitions or something . Under the Disk's Properties, I went to Hardware -> Details to look up some info. I got this...

    I'm using 7/16'' tygon R-3603 tubing over 1/2'' barbs, and after a couple of months, the tubing becomes softer than it was new. I noticed that Durelene tubing does not do this. Basically, I was redoing my loop to make some changes after using it for 2 months, and I pulled a 7/16'' Tygon tube...

    7/16th tubing versus 3/8th tubing - is 7/16 being phased out?

    I run all 7/16'' tubing with a bunch of 7/16th compression fittings. I'm pretty locked down into this size. I helped a friend convert to water cooling and had him use 7/16'' as well. Now we are seeing a lot more support for 3/8th fittings and adapters. Especially from Koolance for their...

    Using swiftech GTX CPU block on GPU?

    Well after I upgrade to a Heatkiller in the near future, the old GTX block will be kinda outdated that if I sell it I won't expect to get much out of it. I already bought it used off of someone else so that would make it a "used then used again" type of sale. However if I modified the 775...

    IPv6 to IPv4 converting by hand questions

    So to my understanding, in hex, A= 10, B = 11, and so on. In order to convert hex to decimal, all you'd have to do is rewrite the digits.
