    It's a tool to put the allen key into so your hands don't get sore holding the bare metal

    You can have multiple cards in a system, although with the newer work units, the GPUs work together with the CPU, so you'd need to make sure you had enough bandwidth for the communications and a powerful enough CPU
     
    Mining would happen on just the GPUs, and there wouldn't be much communication between the CPU and GPUs, hence why you would have seen mining rigs with 6 GPUs along with something like a G3220 
     
    Hopefully that made sense

    I see no reason why this has to be so complicated, unless you have to do the calculation by long division, as just factorising the first expression to be (3x-2)(2x-1) is then easily divided by 2x-1 without long division, at least in my mind anyway.

    If my Irish mother has taught me right, calling something "gas" sort of means the thing is really funny (or possibly odd, haven't quite picked up the context yet) It's just Irish slang

    Codecademy did a good job teaching Python I think.  Also, the community edition of Pycharm is an excellent free IDE for python.

    Folding is really picky about overclocks, and it stresses systems in a different way to standard benchmarks. The best thing to do would be to remove the overclock(s) and see if it crashes then
     
    Also 1.6V is pretty excessive IMO, I'd turn that down if I were you

    Extingquish got a reaction from sgtcool in Out of Space on SSD -,-   
    Make sure your recycle bin is emptied, that's usually what takes up a lot of space for me
     
    Also run CCleaner, it might be able to free up a bit of space as well

    Extingquish got a reaction from TheRandomness in Why did microsoft skip windows 9?   
    Nobody really knows apart from Microsoft themselves, but some common reasons that are speculated are
    Microsoft wanted to make sure that it wasn't closely linked to Windows 8 As @Kevin_Walter said, they counted Win8.1 as Windows 9 Apple called their operating system OS X and it's worked out for them, so Microsoft copied them because 7 8 9?

    Extingquish got a reaction from DarkTornadoGames in FreeNAS via Mobile Internet?   
    Yes, this is possible  
     
    The guide you linked shows you how to do 3 things: Install and set up FreeNAS, Port forward your router, and up a dynamic DNS service
     
    Install FreeNAS
    I assume you're able to do this part, but here's a video anyway:

    (The main video starts at 0:47)
     
    Port forwarding
    If you've never port forwarded a router, this can seem complicated at first, but it really isn't once you get the hang of it. Port forwarding allows you to connect to your NAS whenever you're not connected to your home network. http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/ has guides for most routers, and if you can't find the exact model you have, try something similar as the process will probably be similar within the same manufacturer.
    Note: There does seem to be an ad that pops up every now and again for a software utility that can port forward your router automatically, just close it. It really is simple to do it manually
     
    Dynamic DNS
    This just makes it easier to remember your IP address (instead of typing in something like 281.232.281.656 you could just have is be a URL like example.no-ip.org or example1.dyndns.org depending on the provider you go with.) I use noip, and here's a guide for it http://www.noip.com/support/knowledgebase/getting-started-with-no-ip-com/ although most services will have a similar setup process
     
    Since this will be visible from the internet, you'll want to choose a strong password (I hope this is obvious, or at best just slipped to the back of your mind) Also, you might want to consider what @braneopbru has said, owncloud is pretty simple to set up and is pretty secure
     
    I hope I haven't left too much out of this post, and if you need any help just PM me, and I'll try my best

    No, instead of you constantly transmitting data your progress is packaged up into a finished work unit and then is uploaded to the F@H servers. Whenever the WU can't be uploaded, the program just retries until it is successful (I think)
     
    The only time you really need your PC to be connected to the internet is when you're downloading and uploading WUs
