    1440p monitor vs 3 1080p monitors?

    I have 3 x 1080p monitors and it's amazing for doing work. Surround gaming lost it's appeal so I just game on the center monitor now.

    What was the first linus video you watched ?

    Anyone remember the purple couch? With the backwards baseball cap?
  3. I haven't had to re-activate Windows when restoring drive images, so I assume cloning would work the same way.
  4. What drive cloning software are you using? I believe most should be able to clone a partition onto a new drive. Either way should work fine. I would go for the faster speed of the SATA port. Yep. Your SSD should take on the old drive letter, but you can always change the drive letters manually in Disk Management later.

Eneloops are the best.

    [US] PNY 64GB Turbo USB 3.0 Flash Drive FREE After MIR

    So it comes with 1 year of McAfee free, and they only charge you if you forget to cancel after 10 months? Also, I don't see anything about when they will send you your rebate. For all we know, it could be after the 10 months...

    Is this a legit download?

    Back on topic. Adobe released CS2 for free download last year. https://www.adobe.com/cfusion/entitlement/index.cfm?e=cs2_downloads

    Some sort of magical music sorting program?

    HTTP Error 503 is MusicBrainz rate limiting queries. Not sure why that would occur though since you're running your own VM. :unsure:

    Glad you got it working. A quick Google search found this script to find not ASCII file names: https://superuser.com/questions/237533/find-files-with-non-ascii-characters-in-filenames-in-windows-xp Other links as well: https://superuser.com/questions/636247/how-do-i-remove-non-ascii-characters-from-filenames https://stackoverflow.com/questions/17870055/how-to-rename-a-file-with-non-ascii-character-encoding-to-ascii I'm not sure if any of these will work.

    Yeah, I've found Headphones to be a bit finicky. So in Settings > Quality & Post Processing, you've set the Path to Destination Folder to "Sorted Music"? Also Move downloads to Destination Folder is checked? Try going to Settings > Download Settings and set Music Download Directory to your existing library folder. Then go to Manage > Force Actions and Post-Process Single Folder to test to see if it's working.

    Some sort of magical music sorting program?

    There are instructions on running it on windows here. You will need to install Python first. The torrent integration does exactly that, but you don't need to use. I believe it can sort within the same folder, but just to be safe I would just rename the root folder, eg. Music -> MusicUnsorted, and have Headphones sort back into Music. If that made sense? All your songs will be updated automatically with tags/metadata from MusicBrainz, an open source music database. EDIT: Lifehacker has a great article on a lot of other software that would probably work better.

    Some sort of magical music sorting program?

    The software that I use is Headphones because it runs as a plugin on my FreeNAS box, but it's a bit difficult to get it setup and working. It should be able to do everything you listed except finding duplicates.

    Wallbase.cc Has Shut Down

    I use Desktoppr since it's just one click sync to Dropbox.

    Switching SSD's from RIAD 0, Do I need to un-RAID?

    Yes, you will have to "un-raid" the two SSDs, but you will lose all the data on the SSDs. Make sure you create an image that you can restore (as long as it is less than the capacity of one SSD) or you will have to reinstall windows.

    Minimalistic desk suggestions

    I guess if you look really closely you can see some dark brown on the edges/sides (not the surface), but I would still call it black. I would suggest going to Ikea and taking a look at the displays.

    Minimalistic desk suggestions

    It's black. Not brown at all. I've dropped stuff like keys on the surface and I'm able to fill the scratch with a black permanent marker. I have the long one that ExcitezR mentioned on the previous page (http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/catalog/products/S99932696/#/S99932696), but I assume the smaller ones are the same.

    Minimalistic desk suggestions

    I have the longer ikea linmon desk and use the drawers in place of legs on one side. It works well. http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/98476-good-desk-for-tri-monitor-display-setup/?p=1317915
  21. I believe it's just called 3D side-by-side (SBS).

    If you just need screenshot (full desktop, window, region) functionality, check out CloudShot. It saves the screenshot to Dropbox and copies the share URL to your clipboard.
