    NAS suggestion

    I'm running an ancient Buffalo Terastation that barely gets 35MBps realworld speeds on 1Gb ethernet. I also have a SFF Dell Optiplex running primarily Kodi on it. I have someone in need of a computer and that Dell is completely overkill for what I need it for. I see a QNAP TS-453-Pro-8gb...

    Distributed/Archive File Server - Windows

    The company I started working for in Dec 2014 has a large monolithic file directory structure (virtualized at this point). It's a manufacturing plant that works with multiple vendors, so we have a ton of files that aren't used anymore (company has been around for 50years). The VAST majority...

    SSD Alignment Issue after clone - Must Read if you have cloned your SSD

    So, I recently upgraded from an Intel 320 120GB SSD to an Intel 520 180GB SSD. Rather than reinstall (reinstall was done about 3 months ago) I decided to clone and resize partitions. Long story short, when running benchmarks I noticed AS SSD said "160650 K -BAD". Upon research I found out...

    They need this guys music in a game

    Unseen by Adam Hurst I have bought 4 of his albums, and they're all wonderfully different and really do a great job of transporting you somewhere. Very atmospheric. He could create some truly amazing masterpieces for deep games. More of his work on the right :)

    Lag does not equal low framerates

    Maybe someone else can correct me, but lag is generally used as a noun and is a measured in time (most often ms). Lag in videogames can be attributed to input lag (how long it takes for your input devices like a mouse to move your character onscreen), network lag (transport times of the packets...

    Serious Sam DD

    Hello, First thread here, long time lurker. I just picked up Serious Sam Double D on sale (only $7.99 retail) and just thought I'd chime in here. I'm quite enjoying this little game. It's like Contra on acid. The enemy designs are an absolute riot, including a stack of pancakes, with...
