    The card I bought isn't that high end. Looks like it may have been high end something like 2 years ago. Now it's just a good priced card.

    It's from the colours of the respective company's logos, but honestly I don't really see them referred to as Team Red or Team Green very often.

    I managed to flash the firmware on an ssd from an EFI shell on my Mac Mini, so presumably there's some way to format that way. Took me like five hours to work out though.

    Probably easiest to just make a bootable usb device of your choice to format the drive with.

    Tried that already, got me in the situation where booting with USB drive ends in a black screen. Or the shell if nothing is attached while starting.

    That's odd. I booted my PC fine from USB (no optical disk)

    It worked fine the first time but something went awry during the installation. I guess I have take the HD out and put it in an external case to format it.

    My wireless mouse can scroll up, but doesn't want to scroll down.

    It doesn't matter anyways, the problem fixed itself.

    I'm putting together a pc. My case has three fan's which should be plugged in three pin connectors. My mobo has one three pin chassis fan connector, one three pin power connector and one four pin chassis fan connector. How should I connect the fans to the mobo?

    Edit: nvm I found I can plug one fan in to the pwr fan connector and one in the four pin connector.

    You can also just plug them in directly to the PSU molex connectors (with adapters), but you will have no fan control. So they are hopefully not screaming banshee fans at full speed (because they will be stuck at full speed).

    Has anyone used virtualization for version control? It seems to me that docker the best solution for versioning something like a drupal site that you suddenly became responable for.

    ı use Windows 8 and that yellow folder named "Taşıma Hedefi" is the one ı use carry folders , books , stuff , anything around the hardisc . When you click on it , it's supposed to give a list of last used places and locations that ı fixed . An ease of use , but recently not working . ı had seen that before , sort when there are too many options on that list of last visited locations . So ı regularly delete them . On Monday or so ı attached an external drive to look for a file and accidentally started the search right after only typing the letter r . Now nothing ever surprises me when my computer decides it should look for r15s and r17s around , but ı can't get the option of lists . Ease of use afterall ... ı twice attempted restoring to past dates but apparently my half witted virus protection refuses to budge , even after turning it off for the hour . What do ı do , or will the computer fix itself on its own in time ?
