    Ryzen 5000 with ddr4 3000 on x470

    I can't overclock the ram.............. I bought the 2700x when it was new and RAM sucked back then. It is overvolted just to reach 1500MHz. TheSlySyl is right though, it is so much faster with the 5600x that I don't care about the ram. It works and I can mine and game at the same time and...

    Hurricane Joaquin From The International Space Station

    I live in downtown SC. I went exploring on my bike during the hardest of the rain and got a few cool pictures. Mostly just property damage and it didn't feel at all dangerous downtown because it was all standing water and not moving.

    Need network round robin software for a call center

    Thanks but I am not looking for a CRM solution like JitBit or a dev platform like Bugzilla. I want a very light weight app that can be run on the workstations and they can use to see who gets the next case that comes in. I would write one myself but my VBS is rusty.

    SSD RAID 0 build

    I used to be a gamer but now I am mostly a boring engineer and I have been out of touch with recent SSD tech. For my work I heavily utilize virtual machines that I have been running off of a pair of raptor 10K rpm drives that have served me well but are starting to show their age. I am looking...

    Roku does support full HD. I just rented Watchmen in HD from Amazon and it was great. It loads and plays streams faster than my computer on netfix and the quallity seems better too. I also can stream netfix HD content when available.

    Bandwith monitor in a virtualized environment

    1) lose ? DD-WRT is not yet ready for the WRT-610N so logging at the router is not an option yet. I am just looking for an app like net monitor that runs at a level low enough to capture all traffic on the NIC and not just the IP of the host machine.

    COD4 MP trash in the wind

    I had a hard time thinking of an accurate title for this thread. In COD4 multiplayer there is lots of debris on most maps that looks like paper flying around in the wind. Most of the time I don't notice it but often it can trick my eye into thinking that I saw player motion. Since this game...

    Laptop not charging or running off wall plug...

    Yeah. Your power cord may be dead. Check the light on the brick, if it is on then the problem is more towards the laptop. The most common places are either where the cord comes into the power brick on the laptop end or where the cord goes into the laptop. At this point, either the cord can...

    Difference between Old SB Live! cards and X-Fi cards

    I can't bring myself to replace the soundcard in my sig.....Keeps rockin. I use the digital output so that takes care of the analogue SNR issue. The only thing I have noticed is that FEAR multiplayer overwhelms this card with too many noices at once and it starts to get choppy.
