ninjageek added a topic in General DiscussionDid I pay to much?So for the last year or so I have so wanted to buy a tablet. Keep in mind I have never even owned a smart phone, I just carry a flip phone.
I wanted a windows based tablet because I have a super cool ebook reading program called "Ice Book Reader Pro" I read ALLOT!!!
So I saw one on sale, It only has a 30 gig hard drive, Windows 8, 2 gig of ddr3 ram, a quad core intel processor, Z7340. Its the Asus Transformer Book T100 With the 10.1 touch screen.
The guy wanted 150, but we agreed on 125 bucks. It comes with the detachable key board, and he threw in a wireless mouse with it.
The main thing I will use it for is a book reader, and once I figure it out, I think I can use it to video chat with my grand children. I know it has a camera, I am thinking firefox to do that.
So I am wondering if I paid to much???? I mean I am happy with the price, and it being my first one I did not wanna pay a ton for something I may not use as much as I think I will. Appreciate any input.

ninjageek added a topic in General Discussionutorrent behind vpn, this is a tough one........Ok, I am using utorrent 2.2.1. I am also using a paid VPN. NOW, the big debate, Tek Support at the vpn site say this......"In utorrent make sure to disable UPNP and NAT PMP and bandwidth management (uTP). Enable DHT and Peer Exchange" Changing them settings REALLY show down utorrent.
Leaving the settings at default brings the speeds back up. Question is, does that put me at risk for a slap on the hand from big brother??? One poster swore he got a notice using utorrent and the paid vpn. That was just one person, and they could of been trolling.
Seems like no one can agree. Thought you guys may know???

ninjageek added a topic in General DiscussionVPN issues with Testmy.netSo I been messing around with a VPN. My local provider seems to enjoy messing with the connection speeds. So first I test With out the VPN, Horrid Speeds, Fire Up the VPN, I got one test done, and my browser and connection is faster, So I went to try one more connection, and Now I get a page that says "
Sorry, you don't have permission for that!"
So I disconnect from the VPN, and all is fine. I am testing a "West" connection. Seems like the "mid west", where I live is not really quick.

ninjageek added a topic in General DiscussionHey TriRyan........Not sure you remember me, but you helped me learn how to over clock the AMD processor. HOPE you or someone else can help with a couple of issues.
1.The UEFI Bios I have, Would LOVE to figure out how to get the darn thing to boot from DVD without having to go in and manually change the settings. I use a DVD to clone my hard drive.
2. While I am using the BIOS Default Settings, My motherboard has eaten a couple of Sticks of Cosair Vengence Ram. Replaced the motherboard, I checked the RAM voltage settings, It shows 1.5, I wonder if the Ram is undervolted.

ninjageek added a topic in General DiscussionGot me a new monitor....My old PC monitor died, and thought why not try a t.v. for a monitor?? Sure wish I would of done this long ago. Games look great, No issues there, and with having a small place, I found it to be a nice space saver.
I hooked it up through HDMI, and my T.V. connection has HDMI, so a simple push of a button I can go from PC to T.V. with ease.
I had seen that games were a issue with using a T.V. as a monitor, I simply don't find that to be a problem. And reading a ebook on this 32 inch, WOW!!! I can burn through a book.
