Re: Advice on SSD's

Not quite. Indexing is a harddrive feature that saves a map table of where you files are located for faster harddrive access to files. However SSD will find what your looking for in the same time as it would take to read the index. True however if you do your homework on the very select Windows fea...

Re: Advice on SSD's

Cool Mike looks very nice! And no, there's no reason to have indexing enabled on your system reserve partiton mate Indexing in general on an SSD is by popular belief something that should be disabled due to constant write changes that it frequently makes to the drive, (potentially) limiting the disk...

Re: Which uncapped ISP has best shaping?

Mike,

Ask a mate to come test his ADSL account at your place, then test the latency and speed of that account on your telkom line.

This will help diagnose whether your issue is with Mweb or Telkom

Why not post some Pingtest.net and speedtest.net screenies for us to see

LPT LaserJet

Hi all,

Is it possible to still find a Colour HP LaserJet that has LPT and can print A3 documents?

Urgently looking for one, and the main requirement is the fact it is LPT.

Afaik there's no converter adapter from USB -> LPT , only the other way around correct?

Thanks in advance

Re: CPU vcore

Find out the specs for your CPU, find the spec'd Vcore it's meant to run at, then simply drop that value with small increments until you find instability :) Once that point reaches, run a voltage that was stable..
