Teenagers Jailed For Criminal Version of Facebook

tris203 Re:Arrested for What? (122 comments)

interesting that he only has a 20gb harddrive, where have you based this fact on?

From the very first page of the TrueCrypt website:

A possible plausible explanation for the existence of a partition/device containing solely random data is that you have wiped (securely erased) the content of the partition/device using one of the tools that erase data by overwriting it with random data (in fact, TrueCrypt can be used to securely erase a partition/device too, by creating an empty encrypted partition/device-hosted volume within it)

This means you could explain that it is secure wiped sensitive data (bank statements, passwords, income tax etc), and that is also why you have truecrypt installed

Kinect Causes Xbox 360 RROD

tris203 tris203 writes  |  more than 3 years ago

tris203 (1768578) writes "According to the BBC "Online gaming forums have also been buzzing with accounts of consoles showing the Red Ring of Death shortly after plugging in Kinects."
It is well known that the RROD is usually caused by overheating your GPU. Does the Kinect work the GPU more than say COD or other graphically intense games? Or is it just coincidence that the hours and hours everybody is spending playing with the new Kinect they got for Christmas is causing overheating from prolonged use.
Microsoft say neither, and “Any new instances of the three flashing red lights error are merely coincidental""
