  3. Google made a blog post today explaining their internal process for dealing with US search warrents. They also updated their transparency report. http://googleblog.blogspot.com.au/2014/03/transparency-report-requests-for-user.html Cool little video in my opinion. Good to see they want to explain this and be more transparent but there has to be stuff they're still not saying.

    Live Callers on The WAN Show

    I think you need something to do while you wait for people to call in about the topic at hand, on radio stations they play music, I think you guys need something similarly mundane to do while you wait.
  6. OK, so I just installed my new motherboard and was planning on doing a complete re-install of my C:/ drive and my RAID0 array so I backed everything up onto my 1TB storage drive yesterday. I don't have an optical drive in the system so I made myself a bootable USB drive with the windows 7 iso on it. Everything seemed to go fine, however after I got to the 'Where do you want to install windows?' screen and formatted the drive I was greeted with the following message: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/20170573/Photo_00007.jpg If you can't read it, it says that the "Setup was unable to create a new system partition or locate an existing system partition. See the setup log files for more information." So, my question is, what can I do to install windows on this drive? Does anyone know if it is a problem with the .iso or with the drive etc etc. I do have a windows cd somewhere and if I really must I can always go pick up an optical drive for $20. Any help much appreciated.

    Storage upgrade and RAID cards

    Can you run multiple instances of RAID on 'modern' motherboards? I don't have enough cash for a CPU and mobo upgrade yet.
  9. About to do a reasonably large storage upgrade on my PC. My current set up is: 1 x 60GB Intel SSD for boot 2 x 360GB 2.5" WD Black HDDs in RAID 0 (it's was the fastest option for the lowest price when I got them, don't hate :P) 1 x 1TB WD Green HDD for general storage I like having several drives available with at different speeds and capacities so that I can arrange my files myself so I'm thinking of something along the lines of: 1 x 120GB SSD for a boot drive, I don't put much on my C:/ drive but 60GB was cutting it a bit too close. existing 1 x 60GB for things I use all the time (such as a particular game I play far too much of) existing 2 x 360GB 2.5" WD Black HDDs in RAID 0 for games, applications etc. 2 x 3TB WD Green HDDs in RAID 1 for storage and backups with the RAID 1 for data security Only problem with this is that without upgrading my motherboard, I don't have enough SATA ports (only have 4) for all of those drives. So... my primary question is, can you set up multiple RAID arrays on one motherboard/RAID card without loosing any performance? Also, does anyone have any suggestions as to what RAID card I should be looking at for that many drives?

    Thread For Tech Quickie Video Suggestions

    Something about drivers, where to find them ect, I'm not sure if it really fits with the TechQuickie style but I've had so many people ask me about updates and such.

    Any Legit Guides On How To Bitmine And Its Process?

    I tried Bitcoin Mining for a while a couple weeks ago on my 660ti (because I don't pay for my electricity lol) and to be perfectly honest it wasn't worth it. I made 0.001 bitcoins in just over a week, running GUIminer overnights and during the day. As for mining on your laptop(s), mining in the CPU is literally useless but it's up to you. As mentioned in the first comment use GUIminer if you want a simple interface and them see how you go.
