0Logo PSULow power PC — new or old PSU

I have a serv­er that oper­ates 24.7. It occurred to me that I may be able to save some money on elec­tri­city bills if I could reduce its power con­sump­tion. It already has a low power AMD Sem­pron LE-1100 CPU so the power draw of the sys­tem should be quite low, mas o PSU is quite old and not espe­cially effi­cient. This got me think­ing about Power sup­plies designed for low power sys­tems. There are plenty of 80+ cer­ti­fied PSU’s out there with 500+ watt rat­ings, but are these actu­ally worth the invest­ment for a low power sys­tem?

1Mozilla Minefield x64The case for x64 browsers?

I’ve recently been using Fire­fox 4 64bit pre­b­eta, also known as Mine­field. I thought it would be inter­est­ing to com­pare vari­ous browsers to see if this sup­ports my feel­ing that Mine­field is the fast­est browser I’ve used. The con­clu­sions are quite inter­est­ing. I will con­tin­ue to update this table as new ver­sions are released

0Atualização da RAM da CPU do hardware do PCManeiras simples para tornar seu PC mais rápido

Há muitas dicas e conselhos lá fora, na internet sobre como ajustar o desempenho do seu PC. Alguns deles têm algumas dicas úteis, mas a grande maioria são de muito pouca utilidade, ou porque são para o sistema operacional errado, ou eles não se aplicam a sua configuração, ou porque eles são simplesmente errado. Quando alguém traz um PC para mim e diz que a sua muito lento, antes que eu aconselhá-los para atualizá-lo (e que é sempre uma opção) I have a quick look for sev­er­al things that are the lead­ing cause of slow PC per­form­ance.

0Logo Alarm ClockPHP / JavaScript para acordar um PC remotamente

Eu tenho um HTPC and a net­work serv­er on my net­work. My serv­er is always on, mas o HTPC sleeps when it is not in use.

0Quizdom LogoQuizdom tablet “video capture” not working

I was asked to invest­ig­ate why some video cap­ture util­ity which is part of the soft­ware pack­age for the Quiz­dom Tab­let was­n’t load­ing cor­rectly on a par­tic­u­lar laptop. Invest­ig­a­tion revealed that quiz­dom used the XviD codec and installs it as part of its setup routine. The laptop in ques­tion already had a video codec installed that was cap­able of decod­ing XviD videos, and this pri­or codec had a high­er mer­it than the XviD nat­ive codec installed by quiz­dom. Dis­abling XviD sup­port in this codec proved to be the solu­tion. Any­one with the stan­dalone MPC-HC codecs or ffd­show installed may come across this prob­lem

0GATSO Speed Camera LogoTomTom alertas Speedcam - inc zona euro

Like many people I use a TomTom sat nav, and I’m a big fan of the speed cam­era data­base provided by Pock­et­G­PSWorld. It is also pos­sible to down­load some nice alerts a partir de PGPSW, but I find the beeps are rather annoy­ing, and the max­im­um speed sup­por­ted is 70, which is fine for the Reino Unido, but isn’t very help­ful for maps of Europe. As a res­ult I have mashed togeth­er an altern­at­ive set that I think are much nicer. Get them from the down-cargas page. They work for both Reino Unido and Euro maps. The Euro ones go up to 130. Both sets have a nicer voice (female) and a nicer alert beep. By all means try them out. They install and oper­ate exactly the same as the ones offered by PGPSW, if you need help installing them have a look there.
