    The logic board on my Macbook Pro (mid-2012 15" w/ retina) kicked the bucket. I got the hard drive out of the case figuring I could find some kind of external enclosure to pop it in, but it looks like that might not be so easy/cheap. I don't have anything really important on there that isn't...

    Hi, I replaced the stock Carvin pups in my DC727 with a pair of covered BKP Warpigs. In the process, I want to put in a Freeway 6-way switch in place of the standard toggle switch. Here is the problem I have. The wiring diagram included with the switch shows the setup I am going for...

    In a quest to get my e39 running, which is going horribly may I add, I pulled the battery off my E46 as a temporary measure. I thought nothing of it, as I have a key to get back in the boot, right? Wrong. Closed the boot, with no battery attached. I now have no way to get back in the boot, as...

    Quick question... I have a few IMAP and POP accounts... Outlook 2013 seems to be a nightmare with syncing IMAP stuff. It doesn't handle >20 megs, and it doesn't run rules very well. I am thinking of taking one of the accounts back to POP, because it is just too much of a pain. There seems...

    Whenever I have my external seagate goflex drive hooked up via firewire, my macbook pro shows being connected to wifi but refuses to load any webpages. Even if I just eject/unmount the drive it's the same thing, but as soon as I physically remove and disconnect the drive the internet connection...

    So I managed to spill sweet and sour sauce on my macbook pro. It's a long story, but basically my girlfriend and I are sort of between apartments and don't really have any furniture at the moment. We were sitting on the bed eating, I put the sauce down for a second, my girlfriend moved, and over...

    So. I would like to play Minecraft on my Chromebook. The Chromebook does not support Java out of the box and installing Java on it is hacky. I'd rather not, because I agree with Google here...Javabad. Is there a way to turn the Minecraft game client into a cloud service? I've seen things like...

    I need a formula to determine the difference between two lists. Eg: Column A has a bunch of stuff in it: Drew Dave Mike Crooks James Column B has a bunch of stuff as well: Chris Dave Bob Mike James Steve I need to find out things that exist in both columns. Column B is much longer...

    Yesterday, I purchased my new Mac Mini and knew it came with an HDMI to DVI adapter. What I DIDN'T know, was that the.DVI portion is 24-pin and the one my monitor uses is only 15. I searched high and lo to find either a 15/24 male l/male DVI cable but they dont make one it seems; nor could I...

    From Nolly's facebook page, if you don't mind me asking (just looking for a general answer): When you slice up a track like this, what in the holy hell are you doing to it?

    I'm at work derping with VBA. The code is supposed to import data from a comma delimited text file. It's example code from Microsoft modified to fit our circumstances. It derps out at... rs(2)=CDate(A(2)) ...complaining about a datatype mismatch. Now I am fairly certain that the function...

    I'm trying to determine if the number we're getting on a new box is pretty good or not. The vendor (for the app we're installing) requires 1500-2500IO/Sec. We're getting about 3890IO/Sec, and I'm testing using MS's SQL IO benchmark tool. Thoughts? I'm not at all a SQL guy. I get the machines...

    *A buddy of mine has been thinking about going all futuristic with his home entertainment system, but it's quite the jungle out there with a lot of options. I said I could post a question on here for him as there are some eggschperts here. He currently has: a PC Wifi Web- and network-enabled tv...

    You just can't get a cell reception in my house, for whatever reason. So the gf and I are gonna sign up w/ T-Mobile cuz they have wifi enabled calling phones. On Saturday, they're having a sale where all phones are free after rebate. I'm trying to decide between the HTC Sensation and the...

    Okay this has been driving me nuts this week. I have a small home network set up. The central machine is an older HP media center PC which acts as a central media server to my PS3. Everything runs through an SMC Barricade router and there is a WRT-54G that acts as a wireless access point for the...
  17. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I'm farting around and using the Roadster as a power amp - so the 1/4" output of the AFX just goes into the effects return on the Mesa, and that's it. The XLRs, I send to my MOTU and into my DAW. I have amp models and PA sims turned on, and am just flipping through the stock presets arranging...

    So I just bought an ADA MP-1, and looking to do the Mod 3.666 to it when it arrives. The problem is is that the guide is years old, so the Mouser parts numbers they have are out dated and a lot of the shit is unavailable. I'm not too knowledgeable about electronics and what I can sub in and not...

    The situation - while jamming along to a backing track a half hour ago, I took a couple steps back and my cable (which had twisted around itself and was suddenly way shorter than I was expecting) pulled my Chaos mod TS9 off the front of my amp, where it fell to the floor (a drop of approximately...

    I'm totally at a loose end here and I know a lot of you guys are knowledgeable when it comes to these things. I'd really appreciate some help here :) Basically after a lot of trial and error and one of my hard drives failing, I'm running a dual boot with Windows 7 on one partition and Windows...
