I turn the fricker on this afternoon. Here's why it doesn't work:
I also found it funny that of the 7 desktop icons I could actually see, 5 of them are malware/crapware.

| Tech Board|| Anyone running a Samsung 840 EVO SSD should read this (new firmware released) - ILikeLSUToo on 9/19/14 at 2:20 pm|
I just stumbled across a discussion that's pretty important, affecting Samsung 840 EVO SSDs.
Apparently, the longer a file remains on the SSD, the slower it is to be read. And by slower, I mean MUCH slower. Discussion on Overclock.net:

I know its early, but it occurred to me today that this year's medical expenses are going to probably well exceed 10% of our AGI, and with mortgage interest on top of that, I should easily be able to itemize.
The big expenses will come from my 3-month-old son's surgery, which happens next week, a...

My son had his one-month checkup this morning. His head has been misshapen since birth, but the doctors all assumed it would go back to normal quickly -- he was a C-section birth and required the use of suction to get him out.
