Anyone familiar with accubattery android app or any other app useful for determining the age and health of the battery? I'm particularly interested in accuracy. My new S7 does not last as long as I expected.
"A month ago [2/2016] CSC's high-performance computing services suffered the largest unplanned outage in years. In total approximately 1.7 petabytes and 850 million files were recovered."
I inherited my Yoga from my coworker and he had removed the restore partition. I want to restore the hard drive to how it came from the factory including the original partition structure. I have created the USB restore drive from another Thinkpad Yoga but I get an error when I boot from it and...
What's new in Windows Server 2016 Storage - Technical Preview
Storage Spaces Direct and Storage Replica look the most interesting to me.
The nano server might make a decent NAS. Dedup is included.
What solutions have you found for replacing the domain controller when small companies get rid of their SBS boxes and migrate toward web hosted email? Particularly when they need some locally shared storage.The idea being to have as few server type machines as possible.
My goal was to replace the lights in some bedside table lamps with something more efficient than incandecent. I do not have a dimmer. I was concerned about using LEDs because they are very directional and the function of these lights needs a 360 degree light dispersion. I found these 5000k...
This was recently valuable to me:
Someone who installs W8 often might also find this useful, I did not try it:
Does anyone have a favorite model of 3.5 to 2.5" drive adapter bracket? I've seen some that are supposed to fit 2 drives per bracket, but then some reviews (Amazon) describe how hard they are to work on and how the holes were drilled to the wrong size. Stuff that doesn't show up in the specs...
Now that my S4 has completely crashed for the first time and the only recovery method left was wipe and recover, I'm left searching for a way to make adequate backups.
Luckily most of my data was synced to the cloud and the only thing I seem to have lost was my S Memos, and background and lock...
I'm looking at getting some sata to molex connectors to match a laptop hard drive to an older PSU. However there's a warning about making sure I'm not working with a hard drive that requires 3.3V. The product manual for the Momentus 5400.6 is ambiguous between sata specs and product spec as far...
I'm working with 6 in-ceiling speakers that I know nothing about. They all run to one of 2 wall mounted volume knobs.
In the previous configuration the lines continued on to a 6 line speaker switch alongside other speakers and then to an AV reciever. I may be able to get the model...
I'm looking into getting an H61 Express mb and dropping it into a low profile case I already have. Has anything about the power supply specs changed in the last 5 years that would keep me from using a Gigabyte GA-H61N-USB3 with a CASETRONIC LPF-200CP 200 Watt Power Supply (20 wire connector + 4...
Lower power requirements
high endurance bits
manufacturable with existing fabs
I am looing for a tool to help me with my external DNS administration and reconciliation between HQ and DR. At HQ my domain names are associated with the IP block at HQ but in a disaster the servers will migrate to the colo and domain names need to be reassociated with the IP block down at DR...
Our new TV is Internet connected, DVD connected, roku connected, and 3D. And it is still difficult to find something 3D to play with.
I'm I accidentally in front of the curve? Are there worthwhile 3D DVDs out there?
Time for me to get a TV. The fiance wants it so I'm a gonna get it. ;)
I still have not had a chance to read up on what technical specs I should get if I could get it but my biggest problem is finding a range that will fit the space. If my calculations are correct I can fit a 50" diagonal TV in...
BITS constantly monitors used bandwidth and throttles its own data transfers to only use idle bandwidth. It also supports suspend and resume.
While BITS is usually used for Windows Updates it might be worthwhile to use it...
Hands-on "screen": A proof-of-concept system allows smart phones to use virtually any surface as a touch-based interactive display.
Kinect Turns Any Surface Into a Touch Screen
Researchers combine a Kinect sensor with a pico projector to expand the possibilities for...
Easy access to "New Posts"
Hitting the thread title takes me to the first post I haven't read.
The "Mark Forums Read" link should be bigger by x2.
No quote or edit buttons available, period.
Very useful for testing a faxmachine setup or in my case testing area code logic. You should receive the fax back within 10 minutes.
I'm looking for a free-ish drive imaging software for Server 2003 for buisness use. I need it to be able to schedule an image from a live box but restorations should happen from CD or USB.
Acronis and Symantec have appropriate products but its hard to justify the cost for boxes that are...
I know there are a few threads around here that have information about LED flashlights but it would be nice to have this information in the same place.
I bought a Cree Ultrafire c3 a few months ago. I don't remember why I picked this model but it probably came down to size and price.
Let's say "hypothetically" that I:
Installed the newest version of XenServer (5.6) over an older version (4.1) completely wiping out the partition and file tables and "deleting" my VMs. How can I recover those files? I do not know what the file system was at the time of deletion. They also...
I have 500-1000 photos that I'd like to convert to digital and I don't really have the time or inclination to do it. Most of them would be negatives with 50 or so slides.
Does anyone have a recommendation for a good service to use? I'm thinking maybe silver standard. Not the most expensive but...
I figure someone here has experience with recharging old R12 car A/C systems.
I'm balking at paying $300 to retrofit to 134a and they are telling me there is no R12 in the city and even then its $120/pound. There has to be a cheaper alternative for those of us driving older vehicles. I mean at...
Does anyone have a solution for windows security logging?
I'd like to keep 6 months worth of basic security events for 2 domain controllers and do it for minimal cost.
The maximum log file size on server 2003 is 4G.
"Event Viewer logs are memory mapped files. The maximum...
