Re: E-sim, a game of economy and global politics.

Disable the anti-virus? Add an exeption? Use a vm with no anti-virus? Also the perfect time to switch to linux. Plenty of solutions. :D

I shouldn't be a malicious site, and I haven't had any problem with it and ff/linux.

This will most likely not happen though, they want their games to have multiplayer, and this would make that close to impossible.

[SOLVED]Best live cd for computer with never graphics card.

I just put together a new computer (well new guts, old box and drives), with a few misshaps. At first I discover that my old PSU was too weak, 410W, now replaced with a 600W and it seems to work, computer is still running after 30 mins with prime95, and then a few minutes of Furmark on top of that. ...

Re: Flash crashes my CPU. (No help needed.)

You mean systemwide or just for flash?

Not really interested in that though, just curios about what is happening. ;)

I recently bought a new CPU (AMD ph2 x6 1055t), it works fine, I've stress tested it for ~8 hrs, and get no errors. However if I run anything flash for for than a few minutes, the computer turns off. This happens in both linux and windows and only for flash, haven't run it for extended periods of ti...

Re: [SOLVED]AMD Phenom II x6 1055t only shows up as 800 MHz

did you check your BIOS settings? your multiplier might be off. I really did, and it is off, sort of, It's set at x4 (doesn't boot if I fiddle with it, not even when I raise the vcore too to the specs), but with software I can get the CPU to run at 2.2 GHz at least. And the brings me to the problem...

Re: AMD Phenom II x6 1055t only shows up as 800 MHz

Found some drivers for windows too now and it is sort of solved now, it runs faster now, 2.2 GHz, but it doesn't ever seem to reach the rated 2.8 GHz, windows being windows guess, or the wrong drivers, at least it's bearable.

Re: AMD Phenom II x6 1055t only shows up as 800 MHz

Z-cpu and the windows system properties thingy on windows and 'cat /proc/cpuinfo' on linux, prime95 for load on windows and compiling xulrunner for load on linux. It does say 2.8 GHz on the BIOS, but if you look at the details it says 800 MHz. I find it strange too that it won't boot if I try to for...

[SOLVED]AMD Phenom II 1055t only shows up 800MHz

I bought an AMD Phenom II x6 1055T today, but it seems like it just runs at 800 MHz. I've tried to raise the multiplier and core volt to the right levels manually, but then it won't boot. I've also tried to disable Cool 'n Quiet, and to put a load on the CPU both to no avail. MSI's page claims the t...

Re: The ability of a EuroDOCSIS 2.0 CMTS to deliver upstream

That's true, but in the US it's uncommon for cable providers hit 27Mbit on an upstream channel in DOCSIS2.0 because the existing infrastructure tends to be poor. I didn't even consider this, I'm more theorethical than practical so in my mind singals were traveling free from noise, but, alas, this i...

Well, this is Sweden, the golden land of high-speed internet after all, had I lived 800 meters in another direction I would have had 100/100 Mbit fiber/LAN or whatever it is, I haven't bothered checking, it'll get here too eventually, but I'm impatient on this front.

The ability of a EuroDOCSIS 2.0 CMTS to deliver upstream.

I am currently in a dispute with my local cable company over whether their hardware or some kind of cap they have included in the configuration is to blame for the fact that they only offer me 1 Mbit/s upstream bandwidth. I'm more or less convinced that their CMTS:s can facilitate more than that and...
