re: 1-mth-old son referred to neurosurgeon for craniosynostosis (update p. 8) - ILikeLSUToo
Well, it's happening tomorrow. Wife gave a unit of blood in case he needs a transfusion. Surgery is 8:30, but we have to be there at 6am. He can't have anything but clear liquids after 2:30am. Luckily, we're staying with my brother in New Orleans tonight, so we won't have to make the hour and a half...

Okay, a few pending sectors. I've been using a drive with pending and uncorrectable sectors for the past 2 years, so it's not all doom and gloom. However, I fully expect the HDD to fail any day. It's usually the case that they just get worse, or suddenly fail. You can attempt to fix or isolate th...

Ah, I just reread your other post. Missed the part where you said the Dell Diagnostics were saying it was bad.

You mean GB, not MB. I'm sure that motherboard will support 32GB if it has 4 DIMM slots, but it would be foolish to add any additional RAM to the 8GB it already comes with. Throwing money in the trash. You'd get the same experience taping the extra 8GB module to the outside of your case. You won'...

Most PCs will have a traditional hard drive, which uses small magnetic platters that spin at rates up to 15,000 revolutions per minute (rpm). Here's some self-plagiarism from my PC parts guide. [img]http://img706.imageshack.us/img706/4686/rwn3.png width=500[/img] A traditional desktop hard ...

re: Best place to buy a home PC? - ILikeLSUToo
A custom build (if done properly) will last a lot longer, but matching those specs in individual parts + non-pirated OS would be nearly impossible. That's a $300 CPU. ASUS gets the benefit of being a component vendor on its own and having an extremely close relationship with Pegatron (used to be the...

re: Best place to buy a home PC? - ILikeLSUToo
Good price, good specs. It will be just fine. Only drawback will be that you have to ship the entire desktop at your expense for any amount of warranty service, even if it's just a hard drive failure. When it starts to slow down, reinstall Windows on an SSD. ...

HDMI ports are connected to the TV's PCB via individually soldered pins. Replacing the port would obviously require removal of the entire back housing, as well desoldering and soldering skills.

I have a hardon for Samsung controllers because they are among the most reliable in the industry, but Sandforce is not nearly as bad as it used to be.

I think he simply means more storage per dollar and believes that somehow a 7200rpm drive is a speed compromise between an ssd and a slow 5400rpm drive. He's incredibly wrong, obviously. There is no valid argument against at least a 120gb ssd anymore....

Hard to recommend printers. They are all terrible in their own special way, because there is no money in printer technology, just in the supplies.
