Newbie (1/14)

  1. The configuration I was thinking was; Motherboard: ASRock H67M-ITX Socket LGA1155 DDR3 Mini ITX Motherboard Processor: Intel Core i3-2100 3.10GHz (Sandybridge) RAM: Corsair CMV4GX3M2A1333C9 2 x 2GB DDR3 SDRAM Memory BluRay Drive: Samsung SH-B123L 12x BD-ROM DVD±RW DL & RAM Lightscribe SATA Optical Drive HDD x2: Samsung HD204UI Spinpoint F4 2TB Hard Drive SATA Case, I was thinking starting off with a cardboard box until I can make something like the frames Darren has made. I have been looking around myself and I'm currently looking at 12V 150W PicoPSU-150-XT but a little offput by the price of the brick that would need to get with it (at least another £40)
  2. I am currently looking to build myself a reasonable Home Theatre PC (HTPC), that will also act as a basic server. Unfortunately although I'm a reasonably good programmer I have very little experience with hardware, so was hoping someone would be able to point me in the right direction. As a base for the set up I have been using a recent blog post from Jeff Atawood Revisiting the Home Theater PC. The problem with this is that the PSU that is being suggested doesn't appear to have as many SATA connections as I would require, as I'm looking to have a minimum of three HDDs (two 2TB HDDs in RAID 1 and another HDD for the OS) as well as a BluRay drive. The PSU suggested in Jeff's post was a PicoPSU, which looks quite nice as they from what I've read are quite efficient, really small and more importantly for a HTPC silent. I remembered that Darren had a PSU that wasn't huge when building the cluster (episode 8x23), but when checking the notes there isn't a specific make/model which would give me a start for my search. So I was wondering whether anyone had any suggestions for PSU's that I could get that would give a few more SATA power cables and preferably be as small/efficient as possible. Thanks for any help you guys can give in advance. Satal :) UPDATE After more research I realised that Darren had specified that the PSU was a 1U, which has given me a starting point. I am now currently contempating getting this, which although it doesn't have 4 SATA power cables does have a Molex power cable so I could use a Molex to SATA converter cable. I still welcome any suggestions/comments, as I would like to ensure that I get the HTPC right first time if possible.
  3. Hi, I was hoping that I could get some guidance from some of you guys on Object Design with Database back ends. I am trying to build what could be considered to be my first full scale application, which is a student tracker (simplification). While I have a reasonable idea of how I would go about designing the classes for the system, the bit that I don't know how to do is, how I would go about getting the data to and from the database. While I am programming this in VB.Net I think this would be a problem across all programming languages. For example with my other applications, I have done a couple of things; 1) Gathered all the data from the database when the application started up, creating the objects then. Then when the application closed sending the data back to the database. 2) Have the code which deals with getting the data in the specific class, so the student class for example would take only one constructor argument which would be the studentID, then the class code would connect to the database and populate the object fields as appropriate. 3) Variations of the above. I have also looked into LINQ, which seems like it would be very useful if you don't expect your classes to deal with any business logic and just data, but I suppose it would be possible to create a wrapper class that would include the business logic. Anyway I hope that some of you guys/girls would be kind enough to either point me in the direction of some articles that maybe you have found useful on this subject or your views on what is the best methods for doing this (obviously there isn't going to be one God design pattern for this sort of thing, but some are more generic than others). Thanks for any help/comments/suggestions in advance. Satal
  4. Thanks :) I'll have a look at this properly when I get home from work. If anyone has any other suggestions they would be appreciated as well :)
  5. I've been trying to find a program that I can use to download Hak5 and other revision3 shows by using their RSS feeds, I unfortunately haven't been able to find a program which fits the bill, I was wondering whether anyone has found a solution to this. I need to be able to download the small wmv so I can watch Hak5 on my way to work so I am unable to use the itunes rss feed. Thanks for any help with this in advance Satal
  6. I saw this on Wired.com this morning while at work and I thought that it might be something that people here would be interested in. http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2009/08/twittering-toaster/ Personally I think its pretty cool and would be an interesting project for people who spend alot of time twittering :D
  7. Use the one USB you have, do what you need to install Trinity on there, then when you have done that I believe you can just copy and paste the files onto your desktop or somewhere, then once those files are safely off of the USB, install the others on the USB and then you should be able to copy the Trinity files back onto the USB. Hope that helps :D
  8. I would hope that it isn't corrupted as its still pretty new :( I tried formatting it to Fat32 using Ubuntu using the following command It still didn't work on Vista or XP :( So hopefully some one else has an idea of what I could possibly do to try and get this working as I would like to think that my USB stick isn't corrupt as I have been using it without a problem for a couple weeks now.
  9. I'm trying to create the Multipass described in episode 524. When I try to run PeToUSB against my 16GB SanDisk Cruzer USB, I get the following error I have tried this both on XP and on Vista (using Run As Administrator) I have tried what Darren said about formatting it to FAT32 if I get an error, but I still get the error after that, I have also tried formatting to NTFS to see if that works but without any luck. I was wondering whether anyone else had come across this problem and had managed to find a solution to this problem. Thanks for any help in advance Satal EDIT: I have also received while trying to do the same thing on a XP VM, but I'm just assuming that's something about it being on a VM
  10. I don't know whether this will be of any use but I created a video a while back on how to gain Administrator access to a Vista computer The video is available Here, you will need to click on "Watch in high quality" otherwise you wont be able to see the commands I hope that this helps P.S. I know that the name of the YouTube account is Talas Keot, but it is me, its an anagram of Satal Keto (as that name had already been taken :()
  11. Hi, I have a server running in my living room, which I would like to be able to get access to it from uni and work. Now although I have a nice strong password (21 characters, not in the dictionary etc.) I would like to try and use something like Public Key Authentication. Although to the best of my understanding PKA is between two computers, which unfortunately would mean that I would have to generate key's on each computer the first time I use it and then add it to my servers authorized_keys. I was wondering whether anyone knows of a way that I would be able to have a key which would allow for me to connect to my server from any computer as long as I had putty and the key with me. Thanks for any help in advance Satal :D
  12. lol DingleBerries Very concise :P
  13. I just thought that I would post one possible answer to this MySQL has a function, CHAR() which converts a number into its ASCII version, for example CHAR(116,98,108,84,101,115,116)) Would return 'tblTest' (without the quotes).
  14. Thanks taiyed14 very useful :)
