    WIndows 8 Storage Spaces

    Most of the instabilities that I've found seem to be coming from the Win8 CP. I found a wiki entry better describing the Win8 RP version of storage spaces...

    WIndows 8 Storage Spaces

    I'm considering building a system to hold a number of drives. I'm on a budget, so I would prefer if it were easily expandable in the future, while still providing redundancy. So far, the only systems that I know of that can manage mirroring/parity on varying size drives are integrated solutions...

    New Apple Keyboard Questions

    Hi, I was wondering for those that have one of the newer apple keyboards (the slim ones), how good is it for typing? I have a preference for laptop type keyboards, and am thinking of picking up one of these keyboards. Do you find any problems with them or major differences from a windows...

    IPod Touch Video Converters

    I just ordered an IPod Touch, and am wondering what is a good video converter for the touch. I'm looking mostly for simplicity and speed, with some type of automation. Open source or one with plugins is a plus, or even a command line client would be good. (For windows though) Thanks.

    Weird Vista Problem (Code 12 graphics error)

    I'm getting a really weird problem after installing vista business. Under windows XP and 2003 the problem is inexistent. Currently, hardware acceleration isn't being detected, and aero won't run, nor will directx. I installed vista on a clean partition and it boots up fine. I installed the...

    Schools District Ditching Macs

    This is actually what my school does. Our computers in our library have a sort of hardware based imaging system where it doesn't commit any changes forever. On reboot, it reloads from the image and its as good as clean. (from spyware, viruses, etc). It also helps since people can get admin level...

    Schools District Ditching Macs

    I guess I'm one of the lucky ones in my school. In my school, we have a whole mess of Windows, OS X, Debian and Ubuntu. I guess that it does make support kind of hard in my school, but I can say that high schoolers have the ability to pick up anything technologically related. Its also kinda cool...

    How to map keys on a remote?

    I have a generic Dell media center remote, but do not have winxp media center edition. I was wondering if there is a program out there that would show the key number/name when pressed so I can get the codes for the button presses on the remote. Thanks.

    Anyone using a seperate computer for a media server?

    There arn't too many diadvantages, but the advantages are enormous. If you upload all your media onto another server, your hard drive will be free to do other things in the background. It also provides a centralized area to throw ur files and read your files from. The only disadvantage that I...

    Best Bang for the Buck (5.1)

    Does anyone know the best performance for your dollar 5.1 speaker system? It would be great to get an affordable one, for around $100-150, but I'm afraid that they're crap. So what do you think is a good speaker set?

    CPU throttling

    speedstep won't work, but u could try a program called RMclock. I use it to manage the speeds of my Pentium M (you can undervolt it too). I heard it has support for other processors, but just google RMclock.

    Does such a laptop as this exist?

    I agree, 64-bit is a waste right now. Also, the turon eats up a lot more power than the Pentium-M. I think they preform about the same, but theres really no point to it. By the time 64-bit compatible programs become mainstream, the next generation of processors will roll along. It won't...

    I can tell you, that laptop thats shown there is AWSOME. MY doctor has it, and its beautiful and super light. I compared it to my 700m and my 700m is huge compared to it. The size of the keyboard on it isn't so bad either. I can type full speed on it. If u compare that to a 700m, its like...
