    Anyone hear about NZFS (from flexraid guy[s])

    http://www.openegg.org/2012/01/07/announcing-nzfs-not-zfs/ from what I can see, it seems to be a user friendly ZFS alternative.

    HL(ep)3 voice acting allegedly done

    http://www.oxm.co.uk/36708/valve-voice-actor-working-on-half-life-episode-3/ To be quite honest, if this is on the same old source engine that we've been seeing since 2003, it will be extremely disappointing. I hope that they've decided to wait until the next generation of consoles since...

    HP to release memristor flash alternative in 2013, DRAM in 2014

    http://www.electronicsweekly.com/Articles/06/10/2011/51988/ief2011-hp-to-replace-flash-and-ssd-in-2013.htm Seems to be a pretty big leap if true. They claim that wherever flash is at the time, they'll be 2x better. Whether that means throughput or density I don't know. Memristors offer...

    Got a pre-wired ethernet wall jack with nonstandard wire colors

    So I've got some ethernet wall jacks that are pre-wired to where all you need to do is take the twisted pairs from the ethernet and lay them under the screws. The only problem is that the wires on the wall jack are not the standard ethernet colors so I'm not sure how to wire it up. On my...

    So what is the point of LTE?

    I'm seriously wondering what the point of LTE is? What can I do with that amount of speed that I can't do on 3G that won't have me blow through my 2GB cap in a few days? HD, hell even SD streaming would eat through you data in less than a week with light viewing. I just don't see the point...

    Is there any software to perform certain actions on downloads based on extension?

    For some file types, I always want to do the same thing. So for example, for torrents or nzbs, they always go into a watch folder for auto import. Saved pictures always go into pictures for sorting. Rar and 7zip always get extracted. Seems like there should be some software that can set these...

    WHS machine failed, ? about putting drives in another machine

    My WHS machine failed, so until I can get a new machine up and running, I am putting my drives in my main desktop. On each drive there is a 'DE' folder and inside that folder is a folder called shares and one called folders. The shares folder has all of my files, but the 'folders' folder has...

    Crysis 2 leaked for PC

    Seems as though Crysis 2 has been leaked for PC. From what I've read, it seems to be missing a few things and thus is labeled as a beta, but I don't think it is anything too major. From the screens posted, the PC version is extremely underwhelming on high. Crap textures, especially in what...

    Is all digital out equivalent?

    I'm looking for a soundcard to get optical out from my HTPC because I didn't realize that the mobo didn't have it integrated. I'm looking to get something cheap and I just wanted to ask since it's coming from optical and going into a receiver that the sound will pretty much be the same despite...

    So when we transistion to IPv6, will every device have a static IP?

    From what I've read there would seem to be enough IPs available for every person on earth to have trillions upon trillions of IPs each. So it would make sense for every network capable device to have a static IP. Then again, I don't pretend to know much about it. Has there been any plans or...

    Just an FYI Astaro Home edition now support 50 IPs

    One of the thing that has kept me from trying Astaro is that it used to only support 10 IPs for the home edition. Just went to their website and apparently they've upped it to 50 IPs. I'm not sure when they changed it, but their package for home users looks pretty nice...

    Anybody else get terrible latency in BC2

    I don't know what it is, but I don't think I've ever been in a game that has had under 100 ping for me. The server browser will say 1 or 15, then in game it'll be 100+ always. These servers are in dallas and in source games I'm pulling 10-15 ping. I'm not sure if BC2 is reporting incorrect...

    Can you believe CSS is older than CS was when CSS was released?

    CS was ~5 years old when CSS came out, and CSS is approaching it's 6th year. Can't believe it's been that long. Valve needs to shake a leg with ep3 so they can build a new engine that rapes my pc and make hl3 and cs2.

    So, unlike movies, would you like to see classic games remade?

    Two processes with same name, how to close one that start most recent?

    If I have 2 processes with the same name, say for example, two instances of excel open, and I want to close them with the command line (or simple vbs script or something). They both would have the same name, excel.exe, but I only want to close the one that was opened most recently and not all...

    I've got a bunch of files that are all different names, but they have numbers appended on them. Example: filename_page1.jpg, filename_page2.jpg, filename_page3.jpg, etc. What I would like to do is put these files that have the same name but different appending numbers into the same folder.

    good behind-ear earbuds for running

    The buds that come with the ipod shuffle will not stay in my ears once I begin sweating, so I need some decent behind-ear earbuds to help keep them in while running. I've been searching on amazon, but most have average reviews at best. For the record, I couldn't care less how they sound as...
