    Gamers Nexus vs LinusTechTips: Smackdown

    I'm just going to throw in here and say that I'm glad to see this conversation between GN and LTT. I know its hard, and painful, and dramatic, but I've not respected LTT for the mistakes they've promulgated through ignorance in multiple videos. I remember thinking how stupid it was when he was...

    One of the reasons Apple is worth the money...

    This has been a feature for a long time, it’s a wonderful one and I’ve used it for the same reasons, multiple times. Android has caught up and new android phones also lock the phones so it can’t be stolen and used. Apple did it first but I think these are important features for everyone.

    To replace thermal paste or not

    I wouldn’t hesitate. You got a boost, just a minor one. Importantly, in a couple years you’ll know it’s fine, rather than waiting for it to get bad enough to be worth it. Thermal compound degrades with time as it dries out. I just worked on a transmitter that blew up because the compound got...

    Will a single Cisco WS-C2960-24TT-L switch share a single gw-wan for all its VLANs?

    some suggestions and questions: 1. Don't use or anything close to it. and up. 2. Why are you wanting to vlan? 3. If you use the sonicwall as a router on a stick, inter-vlan traffic will be throughput limited by the sonicwall. 4. Personally, I wouldn't...

    Late 2013 Retina MacBook Pro worth it?

    I've got a PC for gaming, and a 13" rMBP for everything else. I dont like dealing with computer issues anymore. Guess I'm old. I do everything important on my mac. The iCloud crap is great with my iphone and ipad.

    How would you design this topology?

    I think 4 switches is the max in a 2960S flexstack. Would have been better if the endpoint switches were 48 port-ers. This is going to cause near-term growth problems. Using flexstack is definitely the most optimal way, but the 2960S's do have severe limitations. Namely, 6 LACP groups...

    Set up wifi for local hospital?

    I'm going to jump on the bandwagon and say you're in over your head. If you DO go ahead, do what others are saying and keep everything COMPLETELY separate. No shared NOTHING, not even the patch panels! Hospitals are supposed to be NSA-paranoid about security.

    Best DSL modem for poor line quality

    Go to the phone demarc (the box mounted on the outside wall of the house). Open it up and disconnect the wire from the phone jack, connect the modem directly to that, see if it helps.

    Which domain controller should I use? I'd recommend using the 2003 functional level for now unless you want one of the features only offered in 08. It's one of those "only if you have to but it doesn't really matter" type of things. Upping the functionality level takes a few...

    3D PS3 gaming coming via firmware update

    120hz (and now 240hz) tv sets don't duplicate frames. They INTERPOLATE frames and actually generate new ones. Say an object is moving across the screen at a steady rate at 60fps... the tv set will recognize the motion and interpolate the intermediate frames to make it silky smooth.

    What happens if I disable an account while a user is logged in?

    win2k3 AD. What happens if I disable an account while a user is logged in? What is the delay before they lose access to network resources? Do they have to logoff before it fully takes effect on their local computer?

    [itunes/win] forgot to unregister iphone before formatting

    You can reset the devices attached to your apple account. You do this somewhere in your account settings. So if you do this a couple times and run out of activations, you can do a mass delete and all devices will be de-authenticated. You can do this once a year.

    Overcoming Price

    If your not sure you need the portability, consider the 24" iMac. Heavy horsepower and a very high quality screen for color sensitive applications. The 15" MBP also has a good screen, but the 24" iMac is far and above any typical consumer LCD, being an IPS panel. 24" imac with 2.93Ghz Core2...

    I signed up for the trial and forgot about it and ending up accidentally buying a years subscription. I really like the backup application and the idisk... I also have two macs and the syncronization (bookmarks, keychains, calendars) is pretty sweet. I think if I were an iphone owner, i'd...

    New Macbook Pro 13 - hard drive replaceable?

    MBP 13" and 15" bad news about SATA

    Power saving measure. It's not a cost saver at all. And its a software setting, so I presume someone somewhere will figure out how to change it in the future.

    Why are used Mac Pros so expensive?

    It's all about the software. I started with 10.1. It sucked booty. 10.2 was the first one I could really use day in and out. Every successive version of os x has run faster on the same hardware, cept MAYBE 10.5. thats the magic. Win7 has got this same crucial element to it, and thats why...

    connecting server room to main office block!
