I have a question for the power users out there.


All bragging rights aside. If you do a little gaming, and a little skinning, is 32 GB of DDR3 ram overkill?


I have an 8 core CPU with a 240 GB SSD, and a R9 290 4 GB graphics card. Do I need 32 GB of ram, or is 16 enough?

It is with a sad heart that I tell you that Chelsea has left us today at the age of 12+.  She had a good long life, we did all we could for her.

Due to increasing health problems and old age, we had to help her to go to the Rainbow Bridge.

Chelsea was a 6 month old pup when we rescued her from the local animal control, scheduled to be put down the next day.


Chelsea, we miss you. Say hello to Spanky, Precious, Macy, and Santana for us.

I have a PC that was running a triple boot setup just a few days ago. All was well. Was a tri boot system for close to a year now, no problems.

It has an Intel SSD and 2 hard drives.

I decided to lose the Windows 7, and Windows 8.1 and do a fresh install of Windows 10.

Nothing else added, at all.

Now it won't shut down when I hit the shutdown button.

The screen goes black, but the fans and leds keep running. Any ideas as to what could be wrong?

I will likely get one of these!


It makes any screen a touchscreen. Awesome, check it out!  Click the external link.


Sadly, it only goes up to 15.3 inches.

I was just seeing how bad the fires are in Alberta,  Canada. I hope my good friend Ken Crooks is ok.

I'm certain we have other friends and family in Canada, I pray that all can get away from this awful event!

Feeling sad today. My best buddy in the world, Spanky, died this morning at 6:30 AM. He apparently had a heart attack.
He was a good dog. I miss him already.
We were close. He loved me and showed it. Life will go on, but it'll never be the same......

Guys, do you think I should bother putting an SSD I have laying around into a laptop with only a 1.3 ghz dual core processor and 4 GB ram?


Is it worth it?

I plan to sell the laptop.

I have a question. In Multiplicity 3 KVM Pro, I see an option to allow a secondary to control KVM PCs (requires activation).

I tried my serial and it told me it was being used on another PC, so, what is the point?


Second question.

I have licenses for Multiplicity KVM Pro, and Multiplicity KVM. Can I use the MP KVM license on the secondary? To control KVM PCs?

With the risk of being labeled as a Stardock suck up, I would just like to say how much I appreciate the latest activation setup that Stardock has employed.

  I have a varying number of PCs in my home (usually around 8 or 9, which is why I have 2 Stardock accounts) that mostly all run a varying mixture of Stardock products. I build PCs as a hobby now, since skinning has kind of become a secondary hobby. And, as a good builder, I use the systems I build for a bit before I sell them. Just ...
