    So how long did you get from your last mouse?

    My Logitech G600 has recently started developing that seemingly inevitable double-clicking issue. You know, the one where you click once but it registers as two rapid clicks. Apparently Logitech's mice are infamous for this problem (my old G5 suffered from the same fate) and my recent indulgence...

    Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition

    The is the Bioware Neverwinter Nights, not Cryptic's Neverwinter MMO (or the AOL one for that matter). Fancy graphics effects will be added. Compatibility with old mods will be retained. So cheers to that. Maybe one day we'll even get a Neverwinter Nights 3, but until then... No release date at...

    More Stuff for XP32?

    So I was browsing through the TPU front page and something caught my eye... Sure enough it leads to an actual page and download link for it. It's clearly too late to be an April Fools gag. So... what's up with that? Also, please keep the XP bashing to a minimum. Beating a dead horse is only...

    What makes a low-power consumption CPU?

    What exactly goes into low-power consumption CPUs (e.g. Intel's Atom and AMD's Puma) that makes them such? Sure they're clocked lower than the standard desktop CPUs. But clocking down a desktop CPU isn't going to get anywhere near the same power consumption.

    Exponential algorithm making Windows XP miserable could be fixed

    Rest of Article/Source: http://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2013/12/exponential-algorithm-making-windows-xp-miserable-could-be-fixed/ Kinda surprising given Microsoft's desire to get people off XP and buy their later OS'es, not to mention XP's upcoming final end of support in four...

    What's up with the bright blue lights?

    A lot of the computer parts I've bought lately that have LEDs are using a bright blue color. I can't say I like it; not due to Blue Light Hazard or such; but simply just how blue light hurts my eyes when gaming/watching movies in a dimly lit room (red is a much better color for such). It's...

    Does a Parity Drive Count Against the MBR Limit?

    I'm helping a friend turn his old XP32 system into a file server. From what I've read, the normal MBR limit is 2.2 TB. But with 4KB sectors, this limit is raised to 8.8 TB. If I were to take five 2 TB drives and put them into a RAID 5 configuration, it would be 8 TB of usable space with 2 TB...

    ASRock XFAST RAM as RAM Disk

    I was looking at the ASRock X79 Extreme4-M and noticed that many ASRock motherboards offer some RAM Disk solution called XFAST RAM. Their video was somewhat informative, but left me wondering if it could potentially be used for more permanent storage similar to Gigabyte's fabled iRAM from a few...

    Linus Torvalds laments low-res notebook displays

    Rest of article can be read at: http://techreport.com/news/23828/ Yay for someone prominent calling out display manufacturers on resolution stagnation! It's not exactly the 1920x1080 desktop display resolution stagnation that we all lament here at TPU, but it's a close parallel.

    Incorrect Link to XP32 AMD Driver on Front Page

    What the title says... the link to the latest AMD video drivers for XP32 is wrong. It's currently a link to the front page. Correct Link: http://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/2160/mirrors.php
