Something is scanning my system, probably spyware in Firefox. by [email protected]
It happens from system process. It reads DLLS and all kinds of other crap it has no busy reading this. 192 kb/sec per file... it's quite taxing on my system and quite annoying. My best guess it's Firefox secretly scanning installed programs ?! Bye, Skybuck.

Sandy Bridge SATA degradation flaw by [email protected]
The 67 chipsets SATA (3 Gbps) ports were supposed to fail over time. I still have several PCs with 67 chipsets. I don't know what stepping they are (old or fixed). So how to tell? Would plugging in an SSD and doing a large file benchmark diagnose a sickly chipset?

USB to VGA/DVI adapters - ever used one? by [email protected]
I have seen them with USB3, then I came across one with USB2! Must be awfully slow. I wonder what you would use it for. One place I worked had a cluster with a chilled water heat exchanger stuck directly behind the rack, so it would have been not feasible to plug in a DVI connector if techie wanted...

I don't think he likes my MB. http://www.rodsbooks.com/refind/index.html ... The worst I've personally encountered is on Gigabyte's Hybrid EFI, which provides you with no boot options whatsoever, beyond choosing the boot device (hard disk vs. optical disc, for instance). I've heard of others that...

How not to buy a LiIon by Flasherly[_2_]
Two "cell-phone" sized batteries. These were "buffered", as are some Chinese interests, from ready West Coast US of A stock and facilities. BL-5C is the nomenclature, common class, and the XHDATA I think may have been augmented with some brandname. I cut off the wrappers, anyway, taped both...

NEWEGG is doing a sum rebated end for $40. Get it? ... AM4 ... $40. I guess. The thing actually reads like a dive bomber out of a comic book -- Amazon reviews directly as apparently as well a Google search. Total Meltdown City. Kind of gets to me that Newegg would do that: Take a spoon, dip...

RAM temperature sensors needed soon. by [email protected]
Cryptocoins may start using algorithms which can be executed fast only on CPU-RAM chips. Problem with this is current hardware has no RAM temperature sensors ?!?!? Therefore I am requesting this feature to be added to new hardware as soon as possible. Bye, Skybuck.
