    You're being similarly vague.

    Be a dear and tell everyone what "western foolishness" you're referring to when comparing to some nerds discussing their chips.

    No need of 3.3v line

    What kind of help or advice are you looking for exactly? Like you said, everything works with a converter and thus 3.3v isn't a requirement.

    NBN Router?

    Apart from this not being an American forum. NBN seems more like the backbone, from what I gather you just need a normal router? Ethernet to ethernet.

    I'm interested in VMware..plz help me with basics

    If you pick Hyper-V, be sure to use an Intel NIC. Yukons cause huge problems, and from that experience I don't trust other cheap vendors either with Hyper-V.

    Solar Team Eindhoven: A practical car on Solar Energy

    You should read the news then, the Dutch are well represented at various solar challenges and have been for quite some years. Which is odd since there is no sun here.

    Win 7 destroyed my SSD

    Does it by any chance recognize the drive as the SSD's controller or some other fancy name other than OCZ agility? Try upgrading the firmware, or at least rewrite it.

    Help with finding the appropriate cord

    I would guess the make and model of the car or more specific its radio would be relevant. In any case an FM transmitter could be an option.

    Need specifics on RAID 10

    mdadm does, as did the raidcore stack. As for the latter, mentioning it made me wonder what happened with it, seems it's offered now under the name assuredVRA. I should play with it.

    Need specifics on RAID 10

    Why is RAID 10 the most suitable? I'd go for RAID 6 instead. Similar redundancy and more space. Performance shouldn't be a huge issue with the right hardware. Also, apart from controller and drives you need to think about housing. Putting 10 drives in a normal case without decent drive bays...

    What is the largest read/write speed across normal 7200RPM HDD possible today?

    Cat5 and cat5e are both rated at 100MHz and thus have the same bandwidth. Cat5e has less crosstalk though.
