    Any way to power one 4 pin (molex) device from TWO PSU's?

    You probably could go that route to step up the voltage but at that point the design is starting to get complicated. Maybe instead you can purchase a 12V DPDT relay and wire it up like the below. If PSU 2 is off, the relay is not activated and the fans run off PSU 1. If PSU 2 is on, the relay...

    Any way to power one 4 pin (molex) device from TWO PSU's?

    I looked around a bit and didn't see anything obvious like a dual power supply joiner. Depending on how far you are willing to DIY it you could get a couple of 4-pin molex extenders and a couple of high current diodes (15A is likely overkill, maybe something smaller would work) and then Y them...

    The current Logitech RMA process

    The last time I had a double click issue they had me go through the same steps as Vile to check the software, firmware, and also that click registering website. The didn't make my record a video but they did have me report the results back to them. After that they processed the RMA immediately...

    RESOLVED 01/31/23: Windows 11 "Turn Off Monitor" Strange Behavior - Monitor Comes Back Before Computer Available for Tasks

    By default Windows goes to sleep after a period of time - I think somewhere between 5 and 15 minutes. It is possible that after you turn off your monitor the PC goes to sleep and then when you wake it up the monitor turns on first and then the PC takes some additional time before it is...

    Is it possible to (non-permanently) write protect an ATMega32U4?

    They aren't actually fuses in the electrical sense - they are more like circuit breakers that can only be turned back on during reprogramming. Link I just looked up QMK and VIA - It might not be impossible to do what you are asking but in the best case it sounds like it could be a very deep...

    Is it possible to (non-permanently) write protect an ATMega32U4?

    The ATMega32U4 can be set up with two memory segments; one for the bootloader and one for the application code. The write protection can be applied to either of the memory segments independently. According to the datasheet errant memory corruption can occur if the MCU is at brownout voltages if...

    Please help us [H]. Disheartening looking for a new phone for the wife and I.

    Why not something like the Motorola Edge? I just bought one a few days ago. 8GB ram, NFC, and wireless charging. No SD slot but it has 256GB internal storage.

    Best advantage of running IP Passthrough on main AT&T router/modem with Fiber and using your own router ?

    With Comcast you cannot change the DHCP address sent out to LAN clients. If AT&T is the same that could also be one advantage of running your own router.

    USB Flash Drive Generation - does it improve transfer speeds? Need a fast one!

    If speed is really your goal I would suggest getting a SSD and putting it into a latest gen USB-C enclosure. If all your target devices support Thunderbolt you could even get a Thunderbolt SSD enclosure and get get nearly the maximum speed out of it.

    DIY external M2 Nvme Case decisions.

    One of the problems you might have is that a M.2 TB enclosure connected with USB-C won't work on a PC that doesn't have a TB port. Unless someone knows of an enclosure that falls back to USB 3 if the PC doesn't support TB?

    Who here is keeping their 3 series and skipping 4 series nV cards?

    How much does the SSD matter for gaming?

    It depends on the game. The more modern the game is the more likely it makes a difference. Due to ever increasing texture sizes and higher levels of detail new games are 100+GB and that information has to be loaded in real time. For example, Star Citizen is practically unplayable on a magnetic...

    I have a Surface Pro 8. It is a great little device if you want a fully functional windows device in a tablet form factor.

    2FA Authentication for SSH in FreeBSD using FIDO Webinar

    One item of note, in your /etc/ssh/sshd_config file if you set it to AuthenticationMethods publickey,keyboard-interactive:pam (note the comma) you can require both key AND 2FA. I have my server set up to require key+2FA or password+2FA. You can even require a password, 2FA, and key if you wanted.

    Data Merge & Combine Operation Costing

    I agree with LukeTbk - Make sure you are using software that doesn't halt on errors. I usually use FreeFileSync or Robocopy for that type of task which also lets you resume if it gets halted part way.

    Laptop 4K Screen - Will running it at 1080p look odd?

    Why would you want to run the screen at less than native? Windows has a setting for scaling for menu interfaces and text. You can set it for 125% so everything is larger without sacrificing resolution and/or dealing with aliasing.
