I guess they're trying to one up Vmware. I still like VMware workstation better, but you really can't beat free.
Oops, I was too excited. This probably should have went in the free forum. My bad.
Ok, I got handed a retired server. Its a quad 550Mhz so its isn't insanely grand, but I can now play with SMP. The problem is one of them is failed. The POST screen asks me if I want to continue. It will boot my install CD, but I powered it off cause I wanted to ask a couple questions.
I have a script coded for WSH (Windows Scripting Host) which is essentially VB. I can not seem to run it from inside of a webpage. I know php has the ability to run system commands, but I need that type of feature for ASP. All attempts and code snip-its online have failed miserably. If...
I just bought my first dual processor system and it boots fine. My question is this:
Why does CPU1 have an asterisk beside it? Is this normal?
My board is an asus A7v266-d with two Athlon XPs modded to MP processors. I can't find anything on Asus's website or in the motherboard manual...
I have Roxio DVD builder and I can't find the function to allow me to set chapter markers. If someone knows how to, or knows what software I need to use to do this, please let me know. I'm hoping that I'm not missing something obvious when I'm using Roxio, but it has happened before.
I have a 512MB stick of Crucial DDR that no longer passes memtest. I tried to remove the heat spreader, but the two-sided thermal tape is pretty powerful. Does anyone have an idea of how to get it apart so I can RMA the memory back to Crucial??
Verizon will be activating their (FIOS) fiber service for home users next week. I currently have a pentium 75Mhz, 128MB ram machine setup as a firewall/router with DSL. My question is since my service is going to jump from a 3Mb downstream to 15Mb downstream, is my current router going to...
I have a linux file and print server at home. I was wondering if I install VMware and create a Windows 2003 Server virtual machine if I would be able to use the Remote Desktop Connection/Protocol to access it. I don't know if being Virtual, it would goof up that ability. The 2003 server would...
PCalchemy.com has the Hauppauge PVR 250mce for $99
It says to call for price, but just add it to your cart.
Shipping was only $6 for me for standard UPS.
And yes, we all know...
I'm buying a bigger hard drive for my laptop. I run VMware on it in case anyone thinks that could impact which would be a better choice
80GB Hitachi 4200RPM 16MB cache
80GB Hitachi 5400RPM 8MB cache.
It seems odd that the faster rpm drive had less cache, but I don't generally...
Got it from the store I used to work at. Six digit number is the item's number. Some of this may not seem hot, but its a preview of the ad most people won't get. There are other items like cameras and printers I didn't list. If you want them, post or email me.

I've got the specs in mind for this project, but some things are unanswered, and 1 question sort of got answered in my last search.
1. Which tv service does it work with? (Non-digital cable, digital cable, satellite tv)?
-- I assume non-digital since the tuner cards generally say 125...
This is the cheapest I've seen these go for.
8port Gb switch
$99 - 50mir = $49
16port Gb switch
134 - $50 mir = 84
24port Gb + 1fiber port switch
219 - 50mir = 169
Ok, I read the stuff but didn't quite understand it all.
My home network server (runs 24/7) is a 1ghz athlon. I just set folding@home to use 30% figuring that I probably can give it more, but its my initial configuration.
Is this going to fold a decent amount? I thought I read that it...
Here is what I've gathered from some sites
Cat5e operates at 350Mhz
Cat6 operates at 200MHz
Cat5e and cat6 can acheive 1000Mbs.
I'm failing to see why someone would use cat6 cable. I'm planning on wiring my new home for networking and I am going to buy bulk cable, testers...
Either online or at the store bestbuy has crucial 512mb stick PC3200 (DDR400) for 89.99 - 20 mail in rebate. 69.99 aint bad in my mind so I went and got one.
just a week ago I bought it from crucial.com for 94 and right now crucial's web price is 113.
I am looking into buying a water cooling kit for a AMD64 system I'm putting together. Its just to make the PC quiet, I don't intend to overclock it for at least a year.
My question is what is OD and ID? Some vendors actually tell you that a waterblock is one of the two, some just say...
I'm wondering if anyone has tried one of these so called sound dampening sprays and if they have much effect in helping quiet a computer. If I don't get a responce within a couple days, I'll buy one and post back wether or not I think it makes a difference.
If you'd like to look at the...
Intel is looking into nanotechnology tubing to see if it can help cool at computer. More at the link.
I'm not sure if this will get frowned upon, but I thought it was interesting
