If you don’t own your own home server or NAS system, here are five top uses for a home server or NAS.

 

Network Storage

The most common use for a home server or NAS is using it as a network storage. After all, the acronym NAS itself stands for Network Attached Storage.

Download Firefox Standalone Offline Installer for Easy Deployment

Like Google Chrome, if you just go directly to the Mozilla Firefox website, you’re directed to download the Firefox Stub Installer, which is essentially a file that detects your operating system then downloads the most appropriate version of Firefox from the web then installs it. While this works fine if you’re planning to just use Firefox on one computer that has internet access, if you’re trying to deploy Firefox on multiple machines that may or may not have internet access, using a stub installer is a massive waste of time and bandwidth.

Like Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox is available as standalone offline installers, but finding them is a bit [...]

How to Speed Up Steam Download Speeds

Generally speaking, Steam download speeds are pretty good. Steam was originally built as a game distribution platform, so by design they’re supposed to have a lot of capacity. For the most part, you should be able to max out your internet connection without any issues. However, if you’re not getting the maximum download speeds you’ve come to expect when downloading that new copy of Elder Scrolls Online, here’s a couple ways to try to speed up the download process.

 

Change Your Steam Download Server

By default, Steam selects the closest server to your location rather than by choosing intelligently based on the server load. As a [...]

Internet Down? Massive DDOS Cyber Attack Takes Down Major DNS Provider

Is your internet down today? You’re not alone. A massive DDOS attack against DNS provider, Dyn, has taken down a number of the world’s largest websites including Reddit, Twitter, Spotify, Netflix, Amazon, PayPal and more.

 

What is a DNS?

How did this happen? Well in order to understand how this happened, one must first understand how a DNS works. When any device is hooked onto the internet, it gets an IP address which is a number such as 172.0.0.1. This number identifies your computer to the world, but if you’re say Netflix and you want people to find you as netflix.com rather than 52.26.74.145, you need someone to translate [...]

Updated Windows 7 AMD Bulldozer Patch Ready

Remember the previous Windows 7 Bulldozer patch that ended up being a flop? Well, Microsoft didn’t forget about it and have released a couple more patches to give AMD’s Bulldozer a bit more bulldozing power.

The new patches, yes there is two, is expected to offer about a 0 – 2% performance boost depending on the application. (By AMD’s own testing so YMMV) It’s not much, but then again you can’t really complain about a free patch, right?

Our testing shows that not every application realizes a performance boost. In fact, heavily threaded apps (those designed to use all 8 cores), get little or no uplift from this hotfix – they are [...]
