    Which of these CPUs should I use for BlueIris/PRTG?

    I run a Blue Iris setup with a 4790K. I currently have 47 cameras on it, running at 720p and 10fps. Current load is 46% on the CPU. I am not sure what resolution, frame rate, etc. you plan to run the cameras at but for 3 cameras the 4790k will definitely be overkill.

    Beginning to learn Hyper-V Server

    So I have been trying to learn how to deploy Hyper-V to clients and I really can't find much information on it. Is there a seed or something I need to install so they know to connect to the server for the OS? I want the process to be transparent to the end user as possible. I've done lots of...

    This Is The Samsung Galaxy S8, Launching March 29

    I really tried to like the curved edge display but it really bothered me so it's a shame it's making its way across all the flagship Galaxy phones it seems.

    Smart Electric Go Kart For Kids

    Nintendo Halting Wii U Production This Week

    I loved the software. The GamePad would have been nice as an optional accessory but not mandatory. I think they should have released without it and priced the system at $199.

    Ways to block Microsoft store on Windows 10?

    Are there any ways to block the Microsoft store on Windows 10 Pro now that the official method by Microsoft was removed with the anniversary update? Or at the very least, is there a way to stop people from downloading and installing apps? Even though the user is logged on as a User, not...

    GPT and hot swap drives

    This is the first time I have had to setup RAID in modern times with such large drives. I have 8x 2TB hard drives and I don't want to be limited to 2TB per volume so I know I need to convert from NTFS to GPT. But now I have read in some places that GPT does not support hot swapping. Is this...

    Legendary Apple Engineer Turned Down For Genius Bar Job

    While I think it is safe to say there could be other reasons for him not being hired, but isn't there even a remote possibility that he should not be working on the front lines with customers? At my job, we have people who work the front lines and in the back. Most that work in the back, you...

    Amazon Prime Video Now Has Four Times As Many Movies As Netflix

    So 4x the crap? There is still nothing available on Amazon that I want to watch when I do a search. It's not like I can find it on Netflix either, but if they have 4x the selection I am wondering how many bargain bin B movies they are.

    The Internet Has Made Libraries Obsolete

    I've been working in a library since 1998. This is a problem we face all the time, especially as content becomes digital. But we work hard to evolve with how we supply content and experiences. Our library is not a traditional library. Yes, we have books, we have movies and computers to use...

    Sticking With Windows 7? The Forecast Calls For Pain

    I did a clean install of Windows 7 last month. Because we were upgrading almost every piece of software on the systems I thought it would be nice to start fresh. Just having it query for the Windows updates took almost 6 hours. It used to take maybe 5 minutes. Finally it brought up the list...

    Amazon Shipping Has Gotten Slower For Non-Prime Members

    Only once did I get a Prime package late and it was just a day at that. But for $8.33 a month to get 2 day shipping, streaming video and music, and the fact Amazon is typically cheaper and I get cash back from shopping with them makes it very worthwhile to me.

    Ultra HD Blu-ray Discs Releasing In March For $42.99

    If they are going to have such a high price tag they can at least select movies that are worth buying. I am looking forward to the format but in a world that is becoming dominated by streaming its hard to justify that intro price.

    best software NVR for hikvision

    No problems with Blue Iris and Hikvision here. Sounds more displeased with the way the interface looks, rather than the functionality. But as someone who has to use it weekly to review footage and give to the police it has worked wonders.

    Ethernet port dies when printing

    Other computers print fine. Most are the exact same model. We have been using these laptops for a couple of years now. It just suddenly started happening. My next step I guess will be to do a clean install of Windows because I need to update them to Windows 10 any ways.

    Ethernet port dies when printing

    I have a Dell Precision laptop running Windows 7. Suddenly in the last week, whenever I print, the Ethernet port on the laptop dies. It has zero link light and it shows that the cable is unplugged. The key to fix is to remove the print job from the queue, reboot the printer and then suddenly...

    Cloning with Windows 10 and it's free upgrade

    I have a lab of 25 Dell computers that all came with Windows 7 Pro. They are eligible for the Windows 10 upgrade. I am curious if there is any issues with cloning at this point or does the upgrade offer create an issue for it? I'd prefer to do the clean install method on the machine I will...

    Apple Ads Claim 99% iPhone Satisfaction Rate

    Opinions and suggestions needed on gaming laptop

    Always been a Sager fan myself. Bought two of them, also from Power Notebooks. Either way that budget is more than enough for a 980M but I elected for the 970M as $300 difference just wasn't worth it for me and the games that I play.

    Thanks. We do currently have two domain controllers. Both were made in 2004 and have Xeon 1.4GHz, 2GB RAM and Server 2003. I am just so surprised I have not had any hardware failures yet (knocks on wood). But with Server 2003 support ending we need to do something. I am just afraid to put...
