comment How can I attach 10 hard drives to my computer?
Yeah, I don't know if it will work in this case, but in general it's not a bad option to be aware of. It's probably cheaper to just buy a whole new case with a whole new power supply, plus a PCI card to accommodate those drives than going with the External USB drive enclosure mentioned in the other answer. Plus, you'll get much better performance by running everything over SATA instead of trying to use USB.

comment Making a Low cost cloud server
@Ramhound He said he would go with a desktop motherboard if one supported more than 32 GB of RAM. Going with a desktop motherboard infers not using a XEON processor as well.

comment Making a Low cost cloud server
32 GB of RAM is actually quite a lot. You should really look into why you need more than 32 GB of RAM. Also, if you're really going to be building a "cloud" server, whatever that is, you should look into a clustering solution so you can use lots of low cost machines. Also, The Intel x79 desktop chipset supports 64 GB of RAM.

comment Creating virtual network attached storage with VMware
My understanding is that a SAN appears to the operating system as a hard disk, so as far as any applications are concerned, there's no difference between accessing a regular hard drive, and accessing a SAN.

comment What should I do to get better FPS in gameplay
You don't even mention what framerates you're actually getting. Does the screen actually look jittery, like there is a low frame rate? The time between pressing a button and seeing the result on your screen may have very little to do with framerates. Some displays (mainly TVs, but some others) have many filters that they push the image through which causes lag between when a frame is sent to the TV, and when it's displayed. TVs often have a "Game Mode" to remove filters and fix some of the problems. Additional latencies can also be introduced by things such as keyboards and mice.

comment How to add a password to join LAN network
The low-tech solution would be to put the router in locked box. You'd want to have it made out of something that wouldn't block the signal, like wood. Depending on your security requirements, it wouldn't have to be unbreakable, but just provide enough protection to deter people, and provide evidence if it had been broken into.

comment How can I access volumes encrypted with LUKS/dm-crypt from Windows?
Could you use a VM with Linux installed and mount the entire parition in the VM? I know it's not strictly accessing it directly in Windows, but would allow you to access it on an existing computer with Windows installed, to recover the files and put them in a more windows friendly format like TruCrypt.

comment Why doesn't Windows 7 always create 100MB partition?
I've had it not create the partition when installing from a USB stick. I guess the USB stick was somehow picked up as the first drive. Caused all sorts of problems because it wouldn't create the partition but then later wouldn't boot (or some other problem, can't remember specifics) because the 100 MB partition wasn't there.

comment Is it possible to have different applications set to different locales?
Also, perhaps you could change the locale for a single user and just use the program under a different user.

Perhaps you could use a virtual machine if it's just a specific application you would like to use in another locale.

comment How do you speed up searching large columns in Excel?
If you have MS Access, then you might have better performance by importing the data into Access and using that to do your calculations.

comment How to send large emails to lots of people for free?
900 emails of 5 MB each, once a month, probably wouldn't fall outside the terms of use of most shared hosting plans, and as such, it might be beneficial to spend the $5-$10 a month and just pay for shared hosting. I don't think that's much to spend on something you consider a hobby. However, your needs may differ. Also, I'm of the opinion you should be emailing them a link, nobody likes getting 5 MB attachments in their emails. Also, just because you send them an email, doesn't mean they will bother installing it. You'll still have a bunch of people with the old version.
