    Comcast's schedule maintenance killed my downstream channels?

    I have a SB6141 and my internet service is supposed to be 250 down & 10 up. I've had this modem for almost a year. Everything was fine before there was an outage last night due to scheduled maintenance (according to the Xfinity app). I was getting 235down/12up with 8 bonded channels downstream...

    GW Security Inc. Cameras, trustworthy/reliable?

    My dad and I are switching from an analog-based system to IP cameras. So far, I've purchased 2 Hikvision 3MP EXIR bullet cameras to test and they're quite nice. We saw on Amazon that there's a company called GW Security Inc. that sells 5MP cameras for insanely cheap. The reviews are quite mixed...

    SilverStone Essential Gold 500W - $26 before rebate It's a no-brainer at this price. 80 PLUS Gold and a solid name behind it. Ships in 3-4 weeks so you might not be able to get the measly $5 rebate. I haven't checked if there are any reviews yet, but here's the product page. It's a new line from...

    Found the keyboard I used as a kid

    I was going through some stuff from my family's recent move and I found this. It's a model KB-6551EN made by Aquarius Systems Inc. I have no idea who they are and Google comes up empty so they're probably long gone. It has white alps switches but the key layout is horrendous.

    Pillarboxed YouTube videos

    I have a TCL 40" 1080p TV set as my secondary monitor. When I watch YouTube videos that don't have a max resolution of 1080p (360p, 480p, and 720p), the player gets pillarboxed when I enter full screen mode. I suspect that this is due to my main monitor having a different aspect ratio. It's an...

    Toshiba T135D-S1325 video issue

    Whenever I play HD videos on the laptop's display, everything is fine. However, when I hook it up to a LCD TV, the video will stutter (some videos more than others). I've tried x264 MKVs and XVID files and they all experience the same issue (I use mpc - home cinema). Lower quality/resolution...
