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 Windows 8 cannot shut down, hibernate or sleep. It can only restart
It sounds like the motherboard isn't telling the power supply to cut power, which means the OS isn't telling the motherboard to shut down properly. That's not needed for a restart, which is why that works fine. Perhaps try rebuilding your MBR, although I'm not sure how to do that in Windows 8.

comment Only allow external PostgreSQL connections for specific database
Yeah, but that's not what the title says, which is the reason I asked. What you're really asking is "Allow external connections, but only for a specific database".

comment Only allow external PostgreSQL connections for specific database
I'm curious why allowing only external connections is preferential. It essentially means you can't properly administer the database from the server it's running on.

comment Connection to FileZilla FTP Server Works, but Fails Directory Listing
Is there anything different between the two clients? It's been a while, but I seem to remember something similar happened to me when using two different clients that supported different commands for directory listing.

It's no different than what Linux dual booters have had to do for ages.

Why aren't you using bootcamp instead? I suspect that would solve your problems.

comment Computer Freezes Upon Launching GPU Related Application
How powerful is your power supply? In my experience, that is the most likely culprit - your power supply not being able to feed both GPUs.
