    Ha! Kyle's Ultra-X died

    Ok, so I'm not banned yet. Damn. I did not say "everyone thinks Kyle is an arrogant asshole" I said I think he is arrogant, not everyone thinks he is. The word "asshole" was nowhere in my PM. I did not say "everyone bashes him, and I am always defending him". I said I am a member of...

    Ha! Kyle's Ultra-X died

    You're right on all counts. And you pointed out a reason that mirra box would suck just as bad as a RAID 1 setup for backups...it will copy that virus or whatever just as faithfully as a mirrored drive will. And you would not have an uncontaimated image to restore. The LiveState is exactly...

    Ha! Kyle's Ultra-X died

    If you want on-the-fly backups, there's an even cheaper solution. It's called RAID 1. A drive and a cable. If you want archival storage, LiveState is ideal. You do a full backup on each machine once, then incrementals on whatever schedule you choose. The ability to put a brand new drive...

    Ha! Kyle's Ultra-X died

    That mirra box looks interesting...but it's pretty pricey for backups use. You can get Symantec's LiveState Recovery desktop edition for 66 bucks 10 licences (http://www.symantecstore.com/dr/sat2/ec_MAIN.Entry10?V1=668107&PN=1&SP=10023&xid=49999&DSP=&CUR=840&PGRP=0&CACHE_ID=0) a 300GB...

    Slow xp startup

    You didn't mention the disabled hardware in your opening post...it may well be a driver issue. Does hardware manager give any clue why it's disabled?

    Slow xp startup

    go into startup in msconfig, turn things off one at a time and restart the machine until it comes up normally. that should tell you what's bogging you down. leave the last thing you disabled off, turn the rest back on, then figure out what the offender is and if you really need it.

    Best Overclocking Core Ever Made

    Way back in the caveman days I had a 16Mhz AMD 386 clone OCed to 33Mhz...a full 100%. Even more amazing is it had no heat sink or fan on it!

    NICs?

    It'll probably work fine. I prefer to go with bigger names, they seem to have less issues. My preference is the Intel GB NICs....every uSoft OS from 98SE on up supports them right out of the box, and Windows update loads new drivers whenever they come out for them.

    How does a molex pin extractor work?

    The tool I have doesn't...I use my thumbnail to spread them back out. They bend pretty easily. Be careful though, they can be bent too far and snap off.

    How does a molex pin extractor work?

    If you look down inside the molex connector you'll see little tabs (barbs) sticking out from the sides of the pins, keeping them from pulling out of the plastic. Same theory as a fish hook, goes in but the barb keeps it from coming out. The tool just slides over the pin and pushes those...

    Myths about folding and why they are untrue

    One I have yet to convince my boss isn't true...that running a CPU at 100% for weeks on end will "wear it out".

    Computer room temperature

    Thanks for the answers. What my plan is (for now) is to shut off the MP system (losing valuable folding points). That brings the system bench down to about 540 watts. I'm going to spin down all the TiVo units, spin them back up as I get potential buyers, saves 220 watts. Unplug one of the...

    You don't have to order a new BIOS chip. The board will POST far enough to let you use the Asus EZ Flash utility, even with a X2 chip in it. Just have the updated BIOS ready on a floppy. I've heard bad things about the 1014 version, so I stuck with the 1013. How to do it is in your user's...

    AMD vs INTEL

    I sure hope you're right. Truthfully I'd rather not see Intel get stomped on with crap like "monetary damages". Rather just see them be told to stop with the strong-arm tactics, if it's proven true. Don't see any manufacturer lowering prices anytime soon after they got hit with a major...
