afterburn's recent activity

  • My Haswell-E/X99 system takes longer to POST than that, but after the POST sequence it takes literally less than 2 seconds to have the desktop ready for work with fastboot enabled. Patches for ...
  • File History is a perfectly suitable backup solution for files. I wouldn't use it as the only means of backup, but it is perfect for individual files or directories and being able to get them back ...
  • Look better: Settings > Backup > click "Go to Backup and Restore (Windows 7)" Nothing hidden or hard to find. Don't even need to go to the old Control Panel. -- Gijs from The Netherlands Nikon ...
  • That is not a limitation for Synergy as it doesn't care about the screen, but rather one of the screen. My screen has 4 HDMI inputs and 1 DP so in theory I could hook up 5 different computers and ...
  • Like I said in my previous message, if your screen has multiple input, you can hook both computers to the same screen and just switch input to one or the other.
  • For what you want, yes. You have native graphics and performance with Synergy as it is just giving you control with keyboard and mouse to the second PC. It doesn't render an image of the desktop ...
  • I am partial to Plex (www.plex.tv).
  • I use Synergy too, with 1 screen. If your screen has multiple inputs, you can hook up both to the same screen, switch input and continue working on the other with the same keyboard and mouse. Very ...
  • Replied in Actually...
    Windows 10 ignores the hosts file for a lot of Microsoft domains, so doing this may make you feel good about it but it actually doesn't do anything. :)
  • Don't login to FaceBook or Google or Twitter or ... when you are connected to your VPN. Ever. If you do, the datamining just continues and nothing you do after that makes any difference anymore ...
  • Not going into your emotional rant (that I can't agree with on several levels) , but you do know you can actually disable these patches post install without having to remove them?
  • Replied in Sleep
    I have never shutdown my mac. Always sleep. Only reboot if updates needed to be installed or system was going wonky (rare). MacOS doesn't have the weird sleep behavior Windows used to have with ...
  • It would help if you describe the features you need your FS replacement to do.
  • Replied in in history?
    I was going to say, everytime I think RAM is expensive, I think about the time I had to pay 100 bucks for a single 1MegaByte SIMM and all of sudden things don't seem so bad anymore today. That ...
  • The drive needs to be formatted as HFS+ (Apple's filesystem) for you to be able to backup an external (or internal!) drive. If you can't remove it from the exclude list, your drive is most likely ...
  • If you don't want to automatically install updates, you need to configure updates. By default, it will update. No amount of disabling wake timers or scheduler tasks is going to prevent that.
  • If you get an impact large enough that it can damage your front element, there is no filter in the world that is going save you. Just because a filter breaks doesn't mean the front element would ...
  • A little presumption are you, no? W7 doesn't support any filesystem W10 doesn't also support. From all the information given, it is highly unlikely this is a partition problem and messing with ...
  • What happens if you uninstall the device and then let it search for new hardware to add it again?
  • Welcome to the real world, seriously. :) We are living in a time where perhaps 90% of tasks we do with a computer are no longer CPU limited. Bottlenecks do exist, but they are mostly IO (spinning ...
