I'm an electrical engineer currently working as a software engineer and developer. Prior to that, I was a computer tech for 6 months at a independently owned computer store while I looked for an actual engineering job.

I'm a big gamer, with a lot of it taking place on the PC, but I also own a 360 and PS3.

comment Please suggest a motherboard with 939 socket supporting AMD Athlon 64
Agreed, replace your CPU. For only a little more than a new motherboard alone (Socket 939 motherboards haven't been manufactured in a while, therefore price has gone up) you could get a new, modern motherboard and CPU. It's not worth your time, effort, or money to find such and ancient (>5 years) motherboard.

How powerful is you PSU? I'm thinking that the current draw is a bit too much for both cards.

Is this multiple files in one torrent, or multiple torrents?

Line hiding is under TextFX->TextFX Viz.

comment Notepad++: Rule based line highlighting
Would line hiding suffice? I'm thinking hiding lines that you don't want to see so that you can more easily see the important lines.

comment Best modding cooler for Phenom II X6 1090T
I would still do a comparison between the two. If you're only running a few degrees hotter with your old fan, you should still be fine.

comment Notepad++ new line only inserting CR when opening empty file (0 byte text file created in Windows Explorer)
Also, I was wrong earlier (it was first thing in the morning for me). In the preferences, under the New Document/Default Directory tab, you can set the line ending format for new files.

Sorry, I must have misread that. I thought that it started out in Windows format and that it changed to Mac format somewhere before the first comment. Will edit answer to fix.

Could you translate those into English? I think I know what it says, but I'd like to be sure.

comment reboot after power failure for Mac mini running Ubuntu
Can you run that command in a start-up script, or will it still ask you for the su password?

My point exactly.

comment reboot after power failure for Mac mini running Ubuntu
In my experience, this is something typically handled by the bios. Since I know nothing about the lower workings of a Mac (other than that they use mostly standard Intel processors), I wouldn't be able to tell you how set the necessary values in the bios, let alone how to get into it in the first place.

comment How to connect Filezilla over ssh?
What exactly do you want to do once you log into the server? Are you looking to do file transferee to you local machine? Are you trying to admin the machine? If the latter, you can't really do that with filezilla.
