Re: Bedbugs FTL

bedbugs are very difficult to get rid of. you will have to put your cat somewhere else while exterminating.

this is a very good resource http://www.doityourselfpestcontrol.com/

i would recommend one of their liquids that you mix yourself. They also sell kits.

Buddy, I like what I see.  Looks like a true audio aficionado! What integrated amp is that?

Edit: Get a mousepad, they really do help.

it's a fostex hp-a8c. my mouse pad has seen better days so it didn't make the picture.

Re: slow pc help

it's vista.

check your task manager for svchost.exe using a ton of memory.

that would be the windows update doing it's thing. usually at boot.

solution. leave computer on and/or kill that process.

Re: When PC starts if does not go into windows...

it is probably not shutting down properly. that is why it is giving you the boot options.

Re: 256GB SSDs x2: To RAID 0 or not to RAID 0?

i like this article at xbit

there are definitely pros and cons.

also, it is only write speed that can degrade over time.

Re: Sorry to interrupt....

You would probably be better off backing up all your data and doing a clean install of Windows. That's the only way you can be sure that you're doing it right.
