Does your SHIELD say the controller is charging still after you unplug it?

Go to power and put it to sleep. If you tried playing a game from your NVIDIA PC, and the controller doesn’t work, sleep will fix that too. Not sure if it thinking the controller is being charged had anything to do with that or not. It happened again, I exited the game on the SHIELD, and clicked resume and it started working again.

Still haven’t played the new Borderlands game

I have it, but I haven’t beat 2 yet. Just made some more progress in two tonight. Soon I’ll be where I was on the PS3 version. And I might play the new game when I get that far. It was to hard on the PS3. I suppose I could play it online with people. They might kick me for not responding when they try to talk to me, I turned the VoIP to 0 in the audio settings.

MineRack

Need minecraft hosting? Use MineRack, I saw the link on BUYSHARED.com. BUYSHARED is my web host, and they are owned by the same people that run BUYVM.net. MineRack is also owned by Frantech Solutions.

Looks like it has free DDOS protection, you’ll need that if running a game server.

I don’t play minecraft, so I don’t need minecraft hosting.

October

If I save 200 bucks a month, in October I’ll have 800 bucks. New Intel processors should be out by then. Not sure how much all the parts would cost, don’t need to buy a video card, or hard drives, or a blu-ray drive.

That’s enough for a laptop too.

Could get a job, might have an extra 800 bucks sooner, if I did that.

There’s the problem

Subwoofer was to low, couldn’t hear it. Thought I needed 5.1 speakers instead of a soundbar. If I turned it up to high, I’ll be getting complaints.

Not sure I like the bass when playing music. I could use my computer speakers, but there’s not really any room on my desk for them.

Would be a pain to turn the subwoofer down and up all the time.

I don’t think I could hear the subwoofer when the AC was set to 55. It was on 24/7, because it couldn’t get it that cold, only got it to 64. Changed it to 68.

Seagate 3TB Desktop HDD SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5-Inch Internal Bare Drive (ST3000DM001)

$88.41 on Amazon. I’m not using my OCZ SSD. How fast will my VMware Player HD image file be on a SSD? Will it be fast enough for it to be worth it to format it?

Guess I’ll format it and find out.

The booting is still slow. Maybe I should of converted it to the newer format. Not as slow as before. Stuff opens faster now.

Ahh nowhere to put a new 3 TB drive now. Might have more 3.5 bays, but no more SATA connectors on motherboard.

There’s an Intel NUC with an i7

Arch Linux Performance With The Intel Broadwell NUC5i7RYB saw that on phoronix.com, says it has an i7.

Intel NUC Kit NUC5i7RYH Barebone System BOXNUC5I7RYH not the same model, but has an i7.

Could save up and replace my hackintosh with one. But I don’t use my hackintosh, so I think I’ll let it keep collecting dust.

I need to max out the RAM on my desktop. Think I saw a 8 GB stick for 50 bucks, get two for a hundred bucks. More then I paid for two 8 GB sticks years ago.

Five bucks cheaper to buy two 8 GB sticks together. Does Amazon sell it?

PNY XLR8 DDR3 16GB (2x8GB) 1600MHz (PC3-12800) CAS 9 1.5V PC Memory Desktop Kit (MD16384KD3-1600-X9) Cheaper on Amazon. Will the price be the same or lower next month?

I don’t have a problem mixing different RAM brands. Pretty sure my motherboard only does dual channel, not quad channel. Just keep each two sticks the same brand.

You might get bad memory with PNY, don’t want to send it back. Somebody got two bad sets.

The 16gb kit I bought is 205 bucks, I paid $80.49 in 2012. Sold from Amazon for 205 bucks too. The newer model is cheaper.

Think I’ll skip upgrading my RAM. Can’t justify paying more then $80.49.

You don’t need PCTrans Pro to transfer old computer to new one

Looks like the latest version of Todo Backup Workstation, made by the same people, has a system transfer function. Not sure how it works, or if it works. Probably won’t ever need to use it. If I build a new computer, I’ll probably restore using the dissimilar hardware option. And then buy a new copy of Windows, so I can activate it.

You need a system image to use the system transfer.
