Re: Temperature control ?

There are all sorts of control strategies (even PID can be implemented with many variations).

You need to look at the "system" that is being controlled:

what sort of control "valve" do you...

Re: Mother board version issue ms-7184

[older hardware]



Why? If it fits the user's needs, then it would be silly to waste time/money "upgrading" to something that EXCEEDS them!

In talking with my colleagues, I find that those...

Re: Why hot swap server PSUs are derated for lower line voltages

Most servers are 110VAC machines. Typically with dual redundant power supplies (but you could still use a single 120V branch circuit to power them; a pair of branch circuits if you want to protect...

Re: The hard drive failure thread

11.4V is -5%. Note that the DISK (and controller) really only care about what the supplies are LOCALLY, not "someplace else".



neither should throw ANY errors. And, should hammer on the drive...

Re: "Save Image As" I always get a 25KB .jpg that is HTML

Find a JPEG on your computer. Verify it is a valid JPEG by double-clicking on it (which will probably have Windows Photo Viewer open it). Write down the complete path to that file.

Now, in your...

Re: Wiring "High Density" network drops

This is the room that has the highest "drop density". But, there are other bits of kit, elsewhere (e.g., my name server is in another room).



This is the area that has the most concentrated...

Re: Wiring "High Density" network drops

No, mine. I have limited space to cram lots of different kit.

Attached drawing illustrates placement of (only!) the networked devices. A few are missing (a UPS under the switch but atop the...

Re: Disk conidence test while wiping

Most software sits atop the OS -- so you don't actually see what is happening at the disk interface level (the OS tries to make operations work, not report potential "issues" with the device).

Re: Car LED Headlights dimmer?

The statutes referenced apply to vehicles in CT. You would have to examine each state's statutes to determine the legality of underbody lights, there.

E.g., one of my neighbors has underbody...

Re: Who's good with Hexadecimal?

This just appends a second copy of the first ROM image to the end of the first copy and stores it as a new file.

I would assume there are other "structures" in the ROM image that tell the BIOS...

Disk conidence test while wiping

I've married an expert system to my disk wiping software. It looks at "data" from the current drive, coupled with historical data for previously encountered drives of that make/model (because we...

Re: W8 music player for tablet

This is my latest "best pick". Though I can't seem to alter the layout of the various screens as the "Preferences" suggest should be possible. But, the navigation and controls seem to be spot-on...

Re: Ratdude's computer workbench... and epic fail build

I found problems with many of the KVMs I'd tried "locking up" (keyboard) apparently due to switching power on/off for the PCs.

I now use the A/B (or A/B/C/D/E!) switches in the monitors to select...

Re: W8 music player for tablet

No, I was merely using the car as an example of the problem with these UI's -- they require your "full attention" to use.

By contrast, the media player in my car has just a few huge buttons on the...

Re: W8 music player for tablet

I can run damn near anything I want; the problem I've found is the UI's aren't optimized for tablet-type devices. They all want to bedazzle you with their library management functions... or their...

Re: W8 music player for tablet

After a bunch of looking around, I rethought the idea: W8 was a desktop OS that tried to bridge the gap to touch devices (tablets). So, developers wouldn't have fully embraced the idea of a small...

Re: Car LED Headlights dimmer?

Ah! I can't help you, then. Mine are OEM'd with the vehicle. I suspect yours will have a switch-mode current driver that takes whatever "battery" is available and pushes a fixed amount of current...

Re: Car LED Headlights dimmer?

Ain't gonna happen. Each "lamp" is a "smart module" that you'd have to reengineer to alter the lamp current.

But, you can take steps to ensure your lights are aimed properly! There's a...

No, the SECURE web console is laughably worse than that!

From a scan of YOUR posts, it seems "troll" best applies to YOU! (have you actually added any value in any of the posts you've blustered into?)

Re: "Save Image As" I always get a 25KB .jpg that is HTML

What (exactly) are you right-clicking on? E.g., if you right-click on the "dunno" GIF that you included in your post, you should end up with a "dunno.gif" being saved as the "image". If you...

Re: Parallel Printer Renaissance?

The whole protocol is insecure -- don't put a printer on an outward facing network!

The firmware update (on the 300X) is also flakey. I've bricked more than a couple trying to upgrade them to the...
