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 Can I block STEAM whenplaying TES V: Skyrim?
Sure, just start Steam in offline mode. You will lose out on updates and mods from the steam workshop. You will still have to validate the game when you enter the CD Key though, I believe. There's no way around this; If you don't think you should be asked to validate, then tell that to Bethesda by returning the game to the place you bought it and don't give them the sale.

Is there a reason you don't want to mess with quotas? That is exactly what they are for.

@ThatBrazilianGuy If it is public, then everything will be blocked. You need to set it to Work or Home to get subnet sharing to work.

What's the Network type set to on PC3? Home? Work? Public? I think Pubic causes the firewall to block much of the network traffic that isn't to the gateway. I know it shuts down the file sharing service

What kind of errors? There are few things that work as well as windows file sharing.

You're looking in the right place; That message means that something on the hardware level cut off power without notifying windows.

@eric Hmmm, those temperatures sound fine, it's probably not the GPU or CPU overheating then. My next steps would be to swap out the CPU with a known good one, then the RAM, and finally the motherboard, one at a time, until the shutdowns stop.

comment How to prevent Windows from doing this
Can you elaborate on "Doesn't work"? What driver does the device try to use according to the device manager? (Right-Click on the device > Properties). Keep in mind that Windows 8 has many more drivers built-in than Windows 7.

comment How to configure MonoDevelop for Design-by-Contract (ccrewrite)
Stack Overflow is about all things programming, not just code. :) There's definitely a bit of gray area when it comes to the tools, but the litmus test I usually use is "If I asked this of a computer-literate non-programmer (e.g., IT, Sysadmin, Network engineer), would they have any clue what I'm talking about?" If the answer is "Yes" -> Super User, if the answer is "No" -> Stack Overflow. Hope that helps :)

comment How to configure MonoDevelop for Design-by-Contract (ccrewrite)
ccrewrite runs after the assembly is built; it "rewrites" the assembly with the contract ILCode. Also, this seems to be about programming or software development, so I'm voting to move it to Stack Overflow. It should be migrated automatically when enough votes are cast.
