    I want to buy just the Sata connectors, no cables. I want to rewire the back of my Cosmos since my drives are close, but my PSU cable allows for like 2 inches between drives. I want to just pop on some more connectors to make it cleaner.

    Where can I get them?

    Ofcourse but it's the morality of it (having the internet euthanized) not the blocking of the site that worries me, who knows where it might go in the future, we'll have to see.

    Not really, half the torrent's I downloaded there gave me an email from my ISP.

    And, if your saying that because its a 'private tracker', I hope you know that anybody, and I mean anybody, can get into it. Its just as popular as TPB.

    Peerblock is largely a placebo.

    Blocklists are useless because anyone can join the swarm.

    Edited:

    Plus you really would need to install blocklists on the tracker itself to be effective. Also DHT and peer exchange should be disabled if you're really that concerned.

    Regardless, it does help. Encryption and randomized ports do definately help, though.

    General rule of thumb is don't torrent any illegal shit and you'll be fine.

    If you do, it's your own business and I'm not going to preach to you.

    I only use it in the place of demos, and as a rule of thumb I never "try" Valve games first, they are pretty much an insta-buy.

    If its shit it gets uninstalled either way, otherwise I pay for it.

    Hey chicos, if I switch over to Google's DNS, will my internet be fixed? May not be enough information, but my internet goes out for about a minute every few minutes to an hour, and it's really annoying. When I try and use Windows troubleshooting, it tells me that its a problem with the DNS. I'm on Comcast.

    Piracy can't be condoned as you're stealing software, justified or not, but using it as an excuse to euthanize and regulate the internet is just bad practice.

    On a CPU, is 0.1GHz worth an extra 30$ and a longer wait? I feel like it isn't, but I'm also waiting on GTX680 to restock as it is.

    If it's otherwise practically the same processor you can get the cheaper one and OC it. Because that's the only difference.

    When I was a mod on a private tracker we banned people that had DHT enabled.

    Frequency isn't really a good measure of processing power if you aren't comparing different models from the same microarchitecture.

    It's the difference between i7-3770 and a i7-3770K.
    But unless there's something that I'm not seeing, 0.1GHz is the only difference.

    If they use the naming system as they did back in Sandy then you really want the K, the K means it's unlocked and therefore can be overclocked which is usually pretty essential.

    It's because it can't connect to a DNS server. Either the DNS server crashes every few minutes(which I highly doubt) or it's your Router/Modem losing connection.

    It depends entirely on the game, for games like BF3, Metro 2033 then no, for Skyrim, GTA4 then yes.

    Been deciding between a Crucial M4 128GB, which I can get for 90, or a Samsung 830 128GB for 103.

    I'm swinging towards the Samsung. Does anyone suggest otherwise?

    5:04 PM - Killowatt: I play BF3 more often than Skyrim
    5:04 PM - Killowatt: but I play both
    5:04 PM - Killowatt: A lot
    he needs a card that's $150 and won't be bottlenecked by a Q6600, I'm thinking a GTX 460 is really the best he can do

    It has options for USB modems. Pretty sure people use USB cellular modems on it.

    I can't give you proof right now, but I'll atleast check the box and manual.
    Cheers!

    Has the word gaming or game in the page? BLOCKED. Is an image hosting site? BLOCKED (imgur is an exception because i think some of the IT guys browse reddit). Download site? BLOCKED. It would make sense if they did this on their own computers, but not the WiFI. I needed office software, dammit.

    The funny thing is, only the school's computers can view the 'this page has been blocked' page, so you wouldn't know if it was blocked or not because on any other computer it just comes up as a blank page.

    Anyone know if this at the top is normal? Noticed it for the first time earlier at school, appears to be an Ethernet wall socket next to the ceiling with cables between it. Says CAT 5E on it, wasn't sure if they were using it by necessity to string multiple rooms together or what.
