    WPA handshake same as MAC address

    I sniffed a WPA handshake that is exactly the same as the BSSID (MAC) address of the access point. With WPA password salting is it possible to choose a passphrase such that the salted hash will be the same as the MAC? Or is the only way to create a hash and then change the MAC address?

    Anyone play minecraft?

    Anyone want to help create a new minecraft world? I have no idea about admin/building spawns etc so I'm happy to let [H] do it and use the server as our own. I had a spare machine lying around so the specs are: 100 slots, 16 GB RAM, 1 Gbps internet and minecraft on a RAM disk to make it load...

    10 screens on 2x 6990?

    I have a 6990 and currently have 5 screens attached. If I purchase another 6990 will it let me attach another 5, so that I have a 10 screen desktop display? Could I do this in Crossfire or would they have to be separate?

    Virtualisation Build - Ideas wanted

    I'm building a server that will be co-located on a 1gbps/10gbps line and provide VPS/hosting/gameserver solutions as well as FTP servers/seedboxes (if there is redundant bandwidth). Here's what I'm thinking of getting so far (going Opteron as it's cheaper than 4-way Xeons and not much worse)...

    Gaming under two guest OSes?

    If I virtualise a machine in to two guest OSes, is it possible to plug two monitors/keyboard/mice in to the host machine and be able to game on both? Is there any way to virtualise GPUs? What about dual GPU cards (e.g. AMD 6990)?

    4U/Tower for Co-location - Advice needed

    I'm building a 4U/tower for co-location on a 1gbps line. Which case I get will depend on what is cheapest and can accommodate my needs. The server will be sliced up and resold as various hosting services with a lot of bandwidth being used. I'm looking for a minimum of 20 cores but the more...

    Windows 7 - 'system' delay

    I usually don't post these sort of threads as Google can fix most of my problems. However, in over 7 years of overclocking I've never had a problem as weird as this. I had an unstable OC which BSOD'd me as Windows 7 was booting up which caused the problem. It's hard to explain which is why...

    Rebuilding raid5 - possible without same HDD?

    One of my HDDs in my raid5 array finally failed on me. The original drives I had were: 3x Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 [ST-3500630AS] - 500Gb Since they are pretty old, I'm having trouble getting hold of another one with the same model number. However, Seagate do have a newer 500gb drive out...

    I was thinking about completing the game on legendary in one sitting and I'm looking for people who'd also be willing to do it.

    WTB: Corsair Dominator 10000c5

    X1900 XTX (and maybe XT) not liking drivers?

    I've had numerous hitches with my x1900 xtx system listed in my sig. It appears to be that the x1900xtx does not seem to like the ati drivers, which leads to many different BSODs (not only when playing games but also when doing other stressfull things like maya rendering, photoshop editing and...

    Thinking of 2TB Array in Raid 5 - Questions

    Simply put, I need more data storage for backups/media/documents etc. and I have a few questions: Will more drives (i.e. 8x250gb rather than 4x500gb) help protect my data better if its in raid 5? (I know there will be a higher risk of one drive failing but I can quickly replace it, I mean is...

    s939 Opteron OC Questions

    I'm planning on a new single-cpu build purely for CPU OCing and I'm stuck between dothans and s939 opterons. I have a few questions: Do the opterons have the cold bug? (will be doing a few runs with ln2) Does the week of production matter (much)? and finally, do all the different models...

    At the moment I'm currently looking for some decent speakers for my study. I don't really care for 5.1 or 7.1 allthough it is a plus. I have around $500 to spend (or ~300 GBP), not looking for big bass or something I can hear down the street, but I am looking for really good quality. Anyone...

    Any way to pick work units?

    I'm tired of getting low-point WUs and I'd prefer the bigger ones. I have accepted the option to allow for large WUs to be accepted but I rarely get them. Is there any way to pick what WU you receive?

    I can't take it ><

    Just watching my X2 sit there crunching WUs at stock speeds is killing me. If I go any longer without OCing it I'll start having nightmares. Will post back later with results. :D

    Giving users SSH and FTP access?

    RAM not being detected due to fried CPU?

    Well I'm in a little bit of a dilemna and was wondering whether it could be possible that ram would not be detected due to a fried cpu.

    Idea: Automatically remove [img] tags when quoting

    6800 Ultra, 6x.xx drivers, Planetside and UT04...

I first thought that this...

    Help me hit 3ghz

    I wanna prove to the world that Opterons can hit the 3ghz mark, but the only thing that's stopping me is the RAM. My motherboard (Iwill DK8N) does not support _any_ OC'ing features at all, allthough it has the handy PCI/AGP lock. At the moment I can get to (225 x 12) 2749mhz stable with my...
