I am a Computer Programmer and Software Engineer in Austin, TX. I develop web applications for a living and spend my spare time tinkering with all manner of computers and hosted servers, and playing D&D when CPUs aren't melting.

comment How to cancel a Windows 8 update?
As Ramhound said, at this point the update is partially applied and stopping or restarting the system can corrupt your windows installation. You have no option other than to let it finish unless you want to risk having to restore / reinstall Windows.

@nicorellius It should be possible, yes, but you might have to do some hacking around with shell scripts.

@nicorellius Ah, that makes sense now. Yes, I think you can do that with pfSense, but I have not personally tried it. Just create a gateway & gateway group for each WAN (ISP) interface, and then route each subnet to a different gateway group.

@nicorellius I'm not quite sure I follow. You're either load balancing for maximum utilization of both connections, or doing failover in case one connection goes down. I don't understand what other method/reason you'd have for two uplinks.

comment If I add two arbitrary speaker to an existing 5.1 sound system, can I get the equivalent of 7.1 sound?
@Tetsujin Sadly there is a lack of diagrams; It was a bit of an effort just to find one that was labelled. I invite you to replace it with a proper one, though :)

comment SATA Multipliers Power
Note, the linked product supports port multipliers, but it does not indicate that it is a port multiplier itself. I would expect it to have two separate SATA channels.

comment Is there any performance benefit from using a mismatched set of gpus to run dual monitors?
I'm not 100% sure, but I don't think it provides any benefits over being able to hook up additional monitors. The system will still be using the primary GPU (the 970) for the framebuffer and 3D rendering for all attached displays unless you are running an SLI setup. If you have something that is particularly taxing with PhysX, it's possible to offload that to the 660ti, but that rarely makes a noticable improvement in games.

comment I accidentally clicked “ignore” when Chrome asked if I wanted to use a protocol handler. How do I “un-ignore” it?
No, I don't think it does. I think this is for if a website (e.g., GMail) wants to handle links from other programs on your computer (e.g., all mailto links). Modifying stuff in there makes Windows on my system pop up and ask if I want chrome to handle that protocol.

@CoreyOgburn It seems up to date to me. Can you provide a more specific example where this is not working? What protocol are you wanting a website to handle, and which website are you visiting that wants to handle it?
