    replace the keyboard with a morse code thingy
    Or a kinect
    Kinect where you tap morse code by jumps

    Normal jump = short

    jump + backflip = long

    So my computer started acting weird lately, mainly cutting off the video signal to the display and whatnot. I decided to check out what's going on. Some time ago I also heard really loud noises in my room and I mean REALLY loud. Not a gun being shot, but very close. I knew it was something serious but couldn't pinpoint the source of it. The thing is, my GPU usually hangs upside down because somebody thought it's a really good idea to make it that way. Today I discovered this:




    Luckily, I had some spare gpu lying around and my dad said he has the same capacitors (i'm not sure if they are, so I just made an assumption) so he can p. much fix it.

    The spare one is a GT220. Not much, but I'll take anything I can at least hook up a monitor to.

    Is it bad that I want an old IBM typewriter just because I find the mechanism cool as hell to watch?
    ...And also because they make cool sounds.

    You need 1000uF 16V ones, though voltage above 16V also does the job.

    Edited:

    Also, CHECK THE POLARITY BEFORE YOU SOLDER IT, if you mess it up, you can potentially kill the whole card.

    Dad's been working with electronics professionally for the last ~20-25 years, i'm sure he'll have no trouble. But thanks, nonetheless.

    Also the GT220 is a okay card.... sure it's not Crysis material but hey it does a fairly good job at source and M.C and Dirt 1/2.

    I love my HD dock, but I wish it was faster. it has Esata, but I hate Esata. It's unreliable, the cables suck. Unless I'm doing something wrong. My external Esata ports are on the Marvel. For hotswap HD's should it be on AHCI?

    USB works fine but even on my relatively speedy 640GB WD Blues I get 28MB/s write. I was just backing up some projects onto my spare drives to be safe. Moving like 400GB or so will take 4 hours apparently.

    I moved my games from my 7200 RPM 400GB "Games" Drive (Samsung HD403LJ) to one of my 2TB 5400RPM "Storage" drives (HD204UI). I was expecting a hit in loading times and such.

    Honestly. I can't tell the difference. If anything, It's faster.
    This is backed up by some benchmarks I have been digging up and my own benchmarks. My new 5400RPM "Eco" drives are FASTER than my old 7200RPM drives.

    Double cache helping it possibly? I Don't know, I don't really care

    The 400GB drives are getting on a bit like, 3 years since I bought them I think.

    The 2TB probably has much more dense platters = Higher sequential read speeds. Also probably has a bigger cache.

    Maybe it was the files being way fragmented in the Games drive.

    Doesn't MotioninJoy have key mapping capabilities built in?
    I think so. I just had JoyToKey installed anyway and set up with some crappy joypad I had ages ago and the keys were conveniently the same.

    Huh, just noticed that custom profile part.
    Pretty damn useful actually
    Thanks!

    Probably saw "AdSense" as an actual advert

    Or maybe part of the blocking is to stop you from putting adverts on your stuff in the first place

    Depends.

    Would it be serious or like HowToBasic?

    But a few nice tips, meaning no burning down my house, would be nice.

    You should do a weekly/monthly show with 5 minutes per episode.
