    How to beat Super Mario 64 in 4m21s

    This is not the way I remember playing this game. A new method is allowing use of the underwater moat door that you always wanted to go through, so the game can be defeated with only one Bowser key and zero stars.

    Quoting getting screwed up sometimes?

    I think quoting is screwing up once in awhile. Twice now, when I've quoted someone, it ended up being attributed to somebody else's post, and I've had to go back and edit. I was wondering how I could screw up a very simple procedure but I've seen it happen to at least one other person; Ducman69...

    Should cable length affect ohms very much?

    I've got a Fiio E6, which is a tiny little headphone amp that outputs 16mW when under a 300Ohm load, and 150mW under a 16Ohm load. I've been using it with a 15 foot long 3.5mm 22AWG extension cable from Monoprice and a pair of 25 Ohm IEMs with no problems. I needed to increase the length of the...

    PowerGate: What are the PCI-E specs?

    I am seeing a lot of assumptions being made that if a card is pulling more than 75W out of the slot, it is out of the PCI-E specs. Some are saying that if it ever goes above 75W, it's out of spec; others say if it averages above 75W, it's out of spec. But what do the specs actually say? I...

    Rumor: Titan V in April, GTX 1080 in June Oh, what fun this rumor article is! Someone said somewhere that the next Titan card will be the fifth Titan, so the obvious name choice is Titan V, and that sounds so right.

    EMET completely bypassed again

    EMET has been bypassed again, and this time it's really bad: "Duo said it reached out to Microsoft with its research and exploit, which was acknowledged.

    Video card names scoring, xkcd style

    Refer to xkcd's Car Model Names or this will make no sense. A better explanation of how the scores are calculated can be found in that comic's xkcd explained. For example, the GTX 980 is +27 -18 +126 -37 -67 +60 = 91 / 6 = 15.16 / 10 = 1.52 Using the same scores that xkcd uses for car model...
