Thread For Tech Quickie Video Suggestions

Recommended Posts

On 4/25/2013 at 11:11 AM, LinusTech said:

The old thread in the vBulletin forum got lost in the migration (don't worry I still have access to it and I'll still look at it) so I'm creating a new one.

 

Guidelines

 
 1. Video should be possible to watch in 1-2 minutes.
 2. No elaborate props. If we can't shoot it in the white box with a couple of demonstrative pieces, it's probably not feasible.
 3. Keep it simple! The idea here is to simplify computer concepts to the point where your mom can understand it. Not looking for "how to peel the ramspreaders off your memory"
 
 I will read these suggestions, but I may not reply to this thread very often. That doesn't mean I'm not paying attention, it just means I'm busy creating lots of new video content 
 
 If you haven't heard of Tech Quickie, it's another YouTube channel we run for paid content and the ever-popular "Fast As Possible" series.

Watchdog timer

Unix

Registry

Edit: I'm pretty sure they already did a video on this but I don't think it was an "as fast as possible".

Secure boot

Plated cables

Analog vs digital video

PXE

PS/2

Edit: To clarify when I say ps/2 I mean the port. Not the console. This could also extend to a video with faster less accurate troubleshooting methods. Such as trying a ps/2 keyboard or pulling your cmos battery.

It's called USB Type C As fast as possible. But it contains the information that you want explained.
