Kaspersky saves the day by John B. Smith
Last night, Saturday, I went to shut off my head phones and heard a voice coming thru: "We're microsoft your computer is ****ed. If you attempt to turn it off without calling us we'll **** it up worse". I'd already shut my browser down but I found a 'firefox' still in the Processes of TaskManager....

will we see 2.5/5 Gbps ethernet?? by [email protected]
Seems to me to be a real need for this. If you're pulling data off an NAS at 1 Gbps, that is lukewarm green disk speed. But 10 Gbps is pushing **** uphill over old cables. If 2.5GBASE-T hardware were readily available, I would start upgrading my rigs.

Is Class 1 laser safe enough for baby eyes? by Mr. Man-wai Chang
I meant, what if someone accidentally shine Class 1 laser into a baby's eyes? Would it hurt retina and leave a permanent damage? I know ... I know... it should NOT happen. Adults are supposed to be very very careful. :) -- @[email protected] Remain silent! Drink, Blink, Stretch! Live long and prosper!! ...

I'm thinking about buying a USB 3.0 external hub for my pc. I'm looking for one that has about an 18 to 20 inch cable length and will use the older 3.0 USB connectors (Type A ???). Are there any hubs being made that fit those conditions? Who is making them? The ones I saw at newegg look to have...

Microscopically Matching Braided USB [Keyboard] Cable by Flasherly[_2_]
After repeated key failures, repeated instances of disassembling the keyboard to individually fix them, this has inevitably turned into a jOb perspective. But I've also a workable Chinese soldering station, fine-tipped and adjustable to 25- or 40-watt. I therefore KNOW, now, that this little...

(HexDump seldom-crashed messaged bits&pieces) CoreTemp and SpeedFan freewares. (And a lot of disparities between the two and how AMD's implementing sensors. The "tester" may have a better sense than CoreTemp programmer's treatment, i.e. marginality for offsets somehow seem a...

Can I make my power supply fan turn faster? by [email protected]
The fan is making noise. I can stop it with a pencil. I sprayed a jet of wd 40. It is a little more quiet. I think if I could get it spinning faster and give it one more burst, it might hit the spot.
