apropos bitcoin miners and graphic cards by [email protected]

Port Forwarding? by Davej
So port forwarding only works with one computer? If you have two gaming computers then you are screwed? What am I not understanding?

What is the thread size for screws to mount a HDD or Floppy drive? I know they are very small, and vary in length, but I think they are all the same thickness and thread pitch. I need to see if I can get these at a local hardware store, or else I will have to go to ebay. Anyone know the specs on...
