BitTorrent Performance Test: Sync Is Faster Than Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox

TFlan91 Re:and speed was never the point of dropbox (109 comments)

That's completely independent of speed, what you are talking about are limits and/or throttling, both of which are sliders in settings.

Microsoft Introduces Build Cadence Selection With Windows 10

TFlan91 Re:Aero yet (112 comments)

but that only works properly if you have just 1 monitor. If I could easily tile explorers on one monitor in a multi-mon setup, that would be far less annoying.

Lies.

Windows Key + Arrow Left/Right will snap the focused window to the next "pane".

Windows Key + Arrow Up/Down will Minimize/Maximize.

Independent Researchers Test Rossi's Alleged Cold Fusion Device For 32 Days

TFlan91 That last paragraph about sums it up (984 comments)

The next few weeks could be very interesting indeed. According to one report at Sifferkoll, a big bank downloaded the new E-Cat report just minutes after it was made available online — and “oil futures have stayed volatile since.” And of course this morning Glasgow University announced that it would be selling its fossil fuel investments. Hmm

<sigh /> All about those Benjamin's.

Emory University SCCM Server Accidentally Reformats All Computers Campus-wide

TFlan91 As someone who worked with SCCM... (564 comments)

I can attest to the fact that this was no accident.

You have to explicitly, or have the unfortunate luck of clicking the wrong 20 correct buttons in a row, to do something like this, SCCM is not a one-click wonder.

GJ whoever did this, good luck with the networking department though.

Ars Technica Reviews /. Beta

TFlan91 (2615727) writes ""In the modern responsive Web Three Point Oh Internet, Slashdot stands like a thing frozen in time—it's a coelacanth stuck incongruously in an aquarium full of more colorful fish. The technology news aggregator site has been around since 1997, making it positively ancient as websites are reckoned. More importantly, Slashdot's long focus on open source technology news and topics has caused it to accrete a user base that tends to be extremely technical, extremely skilled, and extremely opinionated." ...

"For most sites, a redesign isn't a big deal—Ars has certainly had its share, and we will have more as we evolve. But Slashdot is unique in that there is no other place on the Internet with quite the same mix of entrenched knowledge and personalities. The user base skews heavily toward developers, and unlike StackExchange or other, newer communities, this community has been allowed to ossify for more than a decade. Programmers—and most of the core active Slashdot community are programmers to the bone—don't like it when their tools are changed for no reason, and slapping a fresh coat of paint onto the front of the site without delivering any obvious value to those core users isn't going to work.""
