AMD 8 core CPU. Having problems with cooling before so bought an ARCTIC FREEZER cpu cooler. Made it a bit better but not brilliant.
In terms of case fans, just one.
At the moment, CPU core gets to about 50C (which I thought is not that hot!) and then the PC freezes. I can reproduce by loading...
Has anyone been on the Mearki webinars, got a free AP and not using it?
I always thought there was a way to flag yourself as looking for your next gig within LinkedIn.
However, I've been looking for 15 minutes & can't find it anywhere! Anybody know how/where please?
Any recommendations? The Dell Ultrasharps seem to get good reviews though a bit more than I wanted to pay ideally.
DisplayPort 1.2 Out (I like the idea of daisy chaining them, less clutter)
VESA (will be used with a 2 or 4 way stand)
Ideally have night time/reading modes...
Having registered a couple of domain names (.co.uk and .com) for a blog I plan to start, the next stage is to subscribe to a web hosting site.
I suppose it would be better if the site was hosted in the UK, although this is not essential.
My main criterion is that page...
Looking for a small form factor PC to drive a graphics display. Was considering a Mac Mini but they are approaching 3 years since their last hardware refresh and the spec is looking a bit dated now. Intel Iris 5100 integrated GPU is a good as it gets.
Any suggestions from the congregation?
So I've got my Dell T20 all set up running Windows 2012 R2 Server, and VMWare Workstation Pro to run Virtual Machines. The idea being keep the W12 Server 'clean' with minimal extra software, all that can go on the VM's which can easily be rolled back etc. Got W10 and W7 Ultimate so far,...
I need some technical advice. I can't seem to win at Fifa 17 anymore.
So for Real Madrid I need the following...
1. Best formation.
2. Best tactics, should I play Bale on the right or left.
3. How the hell do i score
4. My goal keeper is a ****wit, what can i do.
5. Skill moves are...
Not something I've looked into but it's kind of annoying I have to turn on my "main" PC to play music - I have multiple computers but my music library only lives on one of them.
When people talk about a network storage drive is that basically a hard disk that is independent of any one computer,...
Need a work laptop - with a MacBook Pro being a dead cert for the job.
But then I had a quick search, and it appears (according to opinions) that an updated MBP will be launched later this year, with some interesting updates (updated processor, 32GB RAM!) - as one analyst put it - "the most...
I'm currently putting the finishing touches to a Wordpress site that I converted from Joomla. The one piece of functionality that I'm having trouble replacing is to find a good file upload utility. The requirements:
A user should have the ability to upload multiple files (all small in size, static...
Anyone built their own website for their contracting company? I had a play with HTML and CSS a few years ago and i'm going to have a go at building myself a little site. Any advice for a beginner?
I've been working just under 1 yr as a contractor - basically a job I managed to get by fluke as I was struggling to get an interview in most places do to my previous experience being in a niche section of development which has left me out of touch with most modern techniques.
Dear Lazyweb, I have a folder on OSX with about 150 other folders within, most of the other folders have a folder in it call XYZ, how would I go about deleting all XYZ folders and anything in that folder without removing anything else.
This has been sitting gathering dust since Christmas, so I thought I would get connected and see if it helps the BB around the hoose.
Why the fook did I bother? Tested the speed *beforehand* lappy wifi and it was 108Mbps down 12Mbps up, which isn't too bad (VirginMedia)
Now after getting it...
potential new contract will require me to complete an audit of IT equipment at various sites.
So rather than attending every device to manually audit. I want to deploy some decent (& free ideally) audit software onto a local DC
and automate the process. So I can produce a report from each site...
I'm looking at Zoho Sites for building a simple web shop that can be run by a near computer illiterate. Just update product (text + images) and take orders.
Does anyone here have experience with said product or can suggest a better candidate?
Following the fun that is heartbleed I have an awful lot of passwords which I need to change.
So it seems a very good time to invest in a password manager. I've looked at 1password and lastpass but really want the best option (I'm not restricted to those two as I haven't bought one yet).
My Windows VM I run through parallels to RDP to my work PC updated itself - seemingly to some insider preview though I don't recall ever signing up to that - and now RDP doesn't work... the shift key doesn't work in full-screen RDP sessions only windowed.
RDP. FFS, they broke remote desktop....
I'm looking for a cheap ad free hosting solution with the described parameters but can't find anything that offers just that. The usual suspects' basic plans all include so much stuff I have no need for or wish to pay for. Similar to a gym that charges £20 extra per month for a swimming pool you...
