I've been a computer hobbiest all my life. I spent one year as a CS major in college, but changed to International Relations after spending 2 years in Mexico. I'm a self-taught programmer. I've taught myself PHP, VB.NET, and C#. I do programming for both work and pleasure.

My current pet project is BatteryBar. It's a battery meter for your taskbar. It keeps historical data on your battery to provide you with a very accurate and consistent reading on how long your battery will last.

comment External harddrive not recognized when connected to asus laptop running Windows 7
I assume this is a 2.5" hard drive. Sometimes the drive needs more power than 1 USB port can provide. Many cables provide a "Y" cable that you can use to plug into two separate ports to get sufficient power. Does that solve your issue?

comment XAMPP Apache Server on Windows 7 not working
If you add a -b to netstat, it'll show the executable associated with the connection, so netstat will directly tell you what application is holding open the port. There's no need for the second step of using Task Manager.

comment Fitting Corsair H60 into NZXT m59
The only way to mount it is with the fan mounted against the case and the radiator on the inside since the screws tighten into the holes in the radiator casing.
