    New Desktop Build - Advice needed

    I'm looking to build a new PC. My needs aren't that high. I'm not gaming, nor am I doing extensive video editing or something. My old PC lasted me eight years, and it was still fine. I just want to be a bit more up to date (USB3 for example), and it should not be too loud or expensive. Here is...

(lspci says "Ralink corp. RT2561/RT61 802.11g PCI") They conection is fine, but now there is a quiet cracking in...

    Ubuntu Edge

    Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu, has started a crowdfunding campaign to fund the production of their first (only?) smartphone. So far, they are not specific about the specs: Apparently, the big selling point is the idea that you can plug it into a docking station / connect to a monitor via...

    2013 24 Hours of Le Mans

    Two weeks to go until this year's edition of everyone's favourite motor-race, so we need a thread to discuss it! I've just finished listening to the test day, and the observations so far: In LMP1, I think Audi has it made. They ran consistently quicker than Toyota, and Lo?c Duval wrapped up the...

    How big is your music library?

    In the last episode of BBC Science Club it was said that the average teenager had a music collection of 8000 songs. This got me wondering, because I've got nowhere near that many. Currently, it stands at: 3521 tracks in 276 albums, 12 and a half days, 54 GB. And I only know half of it really...

    Do you keep a diary?

    I searched, but couldn?t find a thread. Feel free to close this if it is a duplicate. Do any of you keep a diary? Why / Why not? Do you think everybody should / shouldn?t? I don?t keep a diary, and never have. But I am considering it at the moment. I?m interested to hear you experiences and...

    Monitor stays dark

    Hey guys, I have a problem, and I don?t really know whats causing it. I was working normally on my desktop when the monitor went into standby, as if it didn?t receive a signal. Even after a cold reset of the desktop, it still doesn?t receive a signal, not even during the "bios"-phase of booting...

    Recommend me a movie

    I don?t know if we had something similar before, at least I didn?t find it readily. I often wonder (and I?m quite certain I?m not alone with this) what movie to watch. Sure, I could browse IMDB for hours, but it is tiresome and I get the feeling the recommendations are mostly popular movies...

    Ebook Reader

    I did seach the forum, but nothing particulary fitting came up. Well, I?m thinking about buying an ebook reader, as I have to read quite a few papers and PDFs for university. I really don?t want much from it, no videos or such nonsense. Therefore, I?m looking at ?E-Ink? displays only, right? I...

    Porsche to return to Le Mans?

    I've just seen this: source I've already thought a while ago: "Porsche needs to return, or they'll someday lose the title of most successful manufacturer". And maybe the regulations change till then?I'll bet they'll be a lot more petrol-friendly when such a big player steps up to the ACO. We'll...

    Audi Ultra

    If you've been following Le Mans this year, there was no way around noticing Audis promotion for their new technology "Ultra". When you go to their website, you won't find anything about it, except that they've won Le Mans with it. The only thing I was able to find out is that it has something...

    "Go to first new post" doesn't work anymore

    Title says it, the forum always takes me to the first post in a thread. Worked fine a couple of days ago. I'm expecting this to be a problem on my end, yet I can't think of anything I have changed :dunno:

    Need some feedback on a small C++ program

    I'm trying to learn C++ (again^^), and reading a book is swell, but it doesn't tell wether your program is making sense or not. Anyway, the assignement was to read random names and several values to each name, and then compute the sum and the standard-deviation. I think it works, but I'm really...

    Latex Problem

    I'm trying to typeset a small document in Latex, and so far I'm really liking it. I went ahead an made a new command: \newcommand{\bild}[2]{ \vspace{0,3cm} \includegraphics[width=\textwidth]{#1} \captionof{figure}{#2} \vspace{0,3cm} } And used it as follows: ?ungest?rten Str?mung...

    Laptop randomly freezes under Win XP

    Hello, I have an old Acer Aspire 3000 laptop that I don't really use much. Now it is supposed to be used again, so I went on to install WinXP. It installed fine, and then I also updated it to SP2 and then SP3. Now, however, when it is done booting, it immediately freezes, so you can't use the...

    Weird Computer Problem

    Hello, I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 and have two harddrives which are in a Linux Software RAID 1. For a couple of days, quite randomly, this happens: The computer is running fine, nothing out of the ordinary. Then suddenly, the screen turns black and it makes a clicking noise. Sounds exactly like the...
