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 Limit the available RAM that a program/app sees in Windows
@selfmade.exe have you tried it yet? It might not be great, but I'm sure it'd be entirely usable. That processor probably does have the VM features as well (although the motherboard might not support it).

comment Limit the available RAM that a program/app sees in Windows
@selfmade.exe VMs can get pretty close to the hardware already, especially if you have a processor and motherboard that support virtualization features (which almost all current processors and most decent motherboards do).

comment Connecting my desktop to anything other than directly to my modem/router (wired) brings down my entire internet connection
@hdhondt I don't see anything suspicious, but here's the output from ipconfig.

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.

comment Nvidia 3D to 3D display
I'm not sure, not at my home machine at the moment. I believe there is some indication somewhere in the control panel that a connected display supports stereo 3D.

comment Nvidia 3D to 3D display
Don't know the full solution, but one thing to check is that the NVidia software correctly detects the projector as a 3D display.

I don't know of one off hand, but I'd check AMD's site to see if hey have one.

Does the hardware monitor show the temperature of the GPU? It may still be overheating without the rest of the computer becoming abnormally warm.

I'm pretty sure you have hardware issues. Have you tried using a different monitor or using that monitor with a different computer?

comment Clonezilla Live CD won't boot on Dell Optiplex 790
I solved the problem. In fact, using an older version of CloneZilla wouldn't have worked either, nor would an Ubuntu Natty live CD. The comment from L2G is correct, the computer I was trying to boot CloneZilla from wasn't supported by the older version.

comment Why do I have to import .reg file from RegEdit in Win7 and not from .bat file?
Part of the reason yours wasn't working is because you had spaces in the filename.

comment How to make Chrome open bookmarks and URLs in new tabs?
I have an extension for mouse gestures that does rocker gestures already, although I don't know if it requires JavaScript. I know I shouldn't be doing this, but I leave JavaScript on, except for what's blocked by AdBlock.

It doesn't do bookmarks, but URLs are the big thing. Thanks!
