    SH Script in OSX to Open and Close Program?

    Trying to set up a command file that will open a program, wait for X seconds, and then close the program. Ideally, I am trying to create a loop that will do it for a specified number of iterations. Any ideas? I've got a test file that works great at opening one instance of a program (just a...

    US Navy just patented a very compact fusion reactor.

    No, we won't. Water separation requires more energy than can be produced from the hydrogen.

    Sold 1080ti new owner has black screen

    Not a W10 issue if you can't get the POST screen to show with the video card. If the CMOS was cleared, how did you pass back into windows? There should be a fault that prevents boot without hitting F1/2. If it didn't do that, CMOS may not have been cleared. What card was in the system prior...

    Sold 1080ti new owner has black screen

    1. Clear CMOS 2. During boot hit Del/whatever the enter BIOS key is 3. See if it dispays BIOS When installing a new card, the first time it boots it likely won't display anything until after POST- so we need to confirm that the motherboard is seeing/using the card before jumping to a WIndows issue

Type CD x:\windows\system32\oobe (with x being the drive letter where Windows is installed, for example c:\windows\system32\oobe)and hit Enter. Type msoobe and hit Enter. Reboot Now you don't have to agree to any terms!

    Apple to get rid of butterfly switches.

    Nah, I have a dislike for Apple that probably rivals most on these forums, but the Macbook and the iphone are both solid pieces of hardware.

    Cousin's PC will not turn on, trying to diagnose the cause.

    Casting my vote for motherboard or ......drumroll....faulty power switch on the case. As DrLobotomy suggests, the best start is to breadboard the PC. Put the motherboard on a piece of cardboard, plug in 8 pin and 24 pin connectors with a single stick of ram and the cpu only. Jump the power...

    Recover RAID'd files?

    Hey guys- really appreciate the help. Got the HD dock in the mail yesterday, plugged in the individual drives and could read the files. Seems like the hanging in post was due to unhealthy drives.

    Recover RAID'd files?

    Ah ok, did not know that. Strangely, I can't get this machine to boot from a linux live USB drive or that would have been my first step. Going to have to scrounge together a working CD burner to get an actual disk made (gasp!). But, sounds like I'll be able to just view, copy, and wipe- so...

    Recover RAID'd files?

    Copy all- my usb drive adapter comes on Wednesday so I'll check it out. Had the same thoughts on the 750 and I'll try that one first as a standalone. Trying one of the 500gb alone in the desktop returns a "ntldr not found" error right past the DMI line I mentioned. Only 1 drive will do this-...

    Recover RAID'd files?

    Hey guys, have done a bunch of searching and haven't yet been able to figure this one out. I have a bunch of old desktops sitting here (got them in a big lot), and one in particular has an old AMD dual core AM2+ chip and 3 HDs (2x500gb and 1x750gb). Upon first boot, I notice that the PC has...

    Bitcoin and Money Laundering on Trial California

    It is an industry. Look at AMD and Nvidia profits. Look at the cost of the electricity that you brought up- that means profits for power companies and probably more jobs. Not sure how this is any more harm to the environment than ICE cars, consumer use of electricity, or anything else that is...

    Bitcoin and Money Laundering on Trial California

    The world shouldn't want any $200B+ industry to crash. As an investor, what happens next? You get scared and pull in all your investments in to be more secure, which sparks other people doing the same, which is not good. Build more solar panels and windmills.

    So you want a 1080 TI but...(long way to get one)

    The top coin always fluctuates on WTM, with eth remaining constant as usual. There is a reason people benchmark to it. As soon as the coin price fluctuates, guess what- you are now mining the wrong coin again. Several equihash algos mine better on green for sure, again its catching it at the...

    Walmart Wants to Deliver Food and Put It in Your Fridge

    My point is, its not the management of the place that you work's fault if you feel so inundated with work that you don't have a choice. Easy- pick a new job. I also work 60+ hours a week, and don't blame a lick of it on the place I chose to work for. I enjoy my work, and don't have an issue...

    Amazon Cuts Prices at Whole Foods Store

    Mayer tripled the stock price- I'd say there are very few people in the country who could have done the same with that company and well justifies the compensation. $186 million sounds like a lot (which it was in stocks btw, not a paycheck), but compare it to some pro athletes and it comes into...

    Amazon Cuts Prices at Whole Foods Store

    Either unions or the giant wave of manufacturing technology starting in the US or the subsequent giant wave of software starting in the US. Workers' wages aren't being cut. Wages constantly recalibrate based on the availability of the skill set.

    Amazon Cuts Prices at Whole Foods Store

    These comments always baffle me. CEOs are paid what they are worth. Yes, its more than everyone else and yes that hurts peoples' egos. The company has to select the absolute best candidate for the job because so much rides on their decisions. A very select few are qualified for the position...
