    How do I interpret BSOD in Vista

    TBH most blue screens are hardware faults. And a blue screen caused by a hardware faults gives misleading debug info that will send you on a wild goose chase. Before digging through any logs, make sure you don't have failing hardware.

    Good gaming PC Specs?

    The performance gap is not true anymore. It used to be true, but they've come far enough with power management in modern chips that laptop parts are pretty much as fast as the desktop ones. For example (numbers taken from wikipedia, ranges represent base to boost clocks): Desktop 1070: 1920...

    Making Windows 10 fast

    SATA vs NVMe really shouldn't make much difference in real world use. The real advantage of the SSD is latency not bandwidth. I've got an SSD in an older SATA 2.0 box. Still blazing fast compared to a platter disk.

    Making Windows 10 fast

    This. The proper way to tweak windows 10 is to install it and leave it alone. Turn off telemetry if it really bothers you. People need to get past of the xp days of mucking around in services.msc and friends. But it really is crime that any computer ever has windows 10 on a platter disk...

    Chrome vs Chromium

    Two options: 1. These websites whitelist browsers based on the user agent string and they have only whitelisted chrome, not chromium. You could fix this with a user agent spoofing extension to make chromium advertise itself as chrome. 2. Less likely but it's possible these websites rely on some...

    This is really embarrassing and pathetic. They have known ever since the cert was made when it would expire.

    Macbook, OpenVPN, and IPv6 Weirdness

    I've got a very strange issue that I can't figure out. I've got a couple devices at one location (Location A) that I am using OpenVPN to connect to another location (Location B). So far I've set up four devices at Location A: 1. An Android phone. Works as expected. 2. A Chromebook, using the...

    Nintendo Switch

    I assume the cheaper model will be mobile-only with no ability to use a dock. You'd save not just the cost of the dock/cables, but also some internal circuitry for video/audio output, and probably cheaper power/cooling components inside the thing because it wouldn't have to handle the higher...

    Microsoft Proves the Critics Right: We're Heading toward a Chrome-Only Web

    Microsoft will never make internet pundits happy. When they made the original EdgeHTML Edge everyone made fun of it and said it sucked (even though it was decent). Now they basically said "ok fine we get it" and made it chromium based, and everyone hates that too. Tell me, internet, what could...

    Linus Torvalds Comments On Apple's Potential Move to ARM

    It's not that easy. Yeah simple hello world type applications trivially compile for any architecture due to compiler magic, but once you get down to system level libraries and device drivers and stuff, it's not that simple. There are endianness issues. Assumptions about how things are arranged...
