    Will my Arctic Spyder III make it through customs? ( Canada )

    If they catch it they will confiscate it, no doubt. They're always taking my freaking lightbulbs. Whether or not they check the package is a game of roulette.

    how to wire multiple diodes to one driver?

    Putting laser diodes in series is the best option. If you run them in parallel you need resistors in series with each diode to limit the current, without the resistors you run the risk of one diode drawing more current than the others. In series they need (num diodes)*(voltage drop per diode)...

    What are the best science fiction movies?

    Contact (1997) is one of my favorites. This gif of one scene has been going around the web quite a bit recently. More recently interstellar was amazing, felt like 2001 a space odyssey all over again.

    Windows 10 slow?

    Windows 10 is slow if you keep all the stock rubbish running, but if you slim it down it's definitely faster than previous OS's. If you care about battery life on mobile devices Cortana should be the first thing to go, followed by all live tiles. Then the horrifically un-optimized search...

    How would you react if the reputation system is removed on LPF?

    There are a lot of PM's and reported posts behind the scenes of people crying foul, saying it's against the rules to leave neg rep (I wish I was joking) among other things. It's definitely not clear to people how the system can be used. If it stays there needs to be an agreement on it, and...

    Rep system poll - lets end this

    I'm going to close this thread. The poll is a loaded question. There is already a thread on the reputation system and this one serves no added purpose.

    How would you react if the reputation system is removed on LPF?

    Alright, here's my (long) take on it. The Problem Ideally, the reputation system accomplishes one goal, to provide feedback for members on the forums. However, the rep system does not accomplish this well. The first problem being that there is no record of past reputations beyond the ones...

    How many PCs is too many? lol

    Wow. That's an impressive UPS run time. Mine has enough time to wait for a minute for the power to come back on before it sends the shutdown command. RAID0, you're a braver man than I :p I use RAID10 in one server with an extra drive on fail over assignment, and RAID1 for everything else.
