  1. Your "too easy" experiences?

    I'm sure a lot of people have experienced this but the first time I dusted my computer I thought I broke something because it wouldn't turn back on. Turns out I left the power supply turned off.
  2. In windows you can use disk management, just right click the partition and click "expand". On Linux, you can use gparted but I'm not confident enough in giving the steps for it.
  3. That's just the size of the partition. When you formatted it, it changed the partition size. You can probably expand it.
  4. Take this quiz

    It won't become a flame war because nobody is going to take a side.
  5. Take this quiz

    The question isn't very specific. Which one costs more? Which one is made by Microsoft? Which one has more games? Which one is more powerful? I'm gonna go with which controller I prefer, which would be the XBox one because I find the play station ones to be a bit too small.
  6. Take this quiz

    Don't start a flame war, but I'm pretty sure 95% of this community plays on PC.
  7. Do I need a hard drive?

    It depends what you want to do. Windows will work fine with just SSDs, but if you want to store a lot of videos, I'd recommend a hard drive.
  8. AFAIK one of the pins on sata power is a 3.3 volt wire that triggers a HDD "reset". If the drive gets power on that wire it will try to restart, but since it's constant it won't turn on. You can get around that with certain cables/adapters or by using a backplane, which is unlikely in a desktop pc. Edit: It was used on older drives when sata was first created, but manufacturers stopped using it. For some reason WD decided to connect it on this drive, probably to make using the drive outside the enclosure more difficult.
  9. NFS Payback .... letting us down again

    That's unfortunate. I really liked NFS Rivals and was looking forward to this one.
  10. Here's some useful information: Inside those drives are modified WD Reds with a white label. The only notable difference is that these have the 3.3 volt reset pin connected, so you need to make sure that whatever you connect this to does not have that pin wired, or the HDD won't start. (not my picture, got it from r/DataHoarder)
  11. Best Linux distro for Home Server

    Ubuntu Server with Webmin is always a solid choice.
  12. Chrome and multiple users

    Go to edit the person in chrome settings and enable the desktop shortcut.
  13. Certain files that are in the process of being written to storage may become corrupted, but it's extremely unlikely that the entire filesystem will be corrupted. I've pulled the plug on several computers while they were running (it's not good for them so don't do it for no reason) but there was never any filesystem damage. I can pretty much guarantee that nothing will happen to your router if you unplug it.
  14. How i can learn more about networking ?

    Mess around in pfSense
  15. Web Development! Mac VS Windows

    I think Windows is better for programming in general because there is a lot more software supported on it. As long as they both have the software that you need, they'll both work fine and you should pick the one that you feel more comfortable with.
