If you are like me you have been highly frustrated at the native functionality of the bundled IP camera software that came with your camera, as well as the lack of availability of third party solutions. If this sounds like you than I will make your day as iSpy Connect is the most complete and functional solution […]
Ever wish you had a dedicated machine you could use for testing software or had the ability to run dedicated tasks such as maybe a backup server or media server? Then creating a Virtual Machine with Hyper-V might be worth a look. There are many reasons you may want to run VM’s but one of the most […]
As I referred to in my article on my home rack server project, I bought a 2U case to house my VM server. I already had a smaller rack mount case, however it would only accept a mini-ITX board and I needed the case to support a MicroATX board. This left me searching for something […]

Well, here we go again with another round with Storage Spaces. If you have read my other reviews on Storage Spaces, you know that I have not been a fan of past versions, especially in the parity configuration. With promise of new functionality, speed, and security, I was naturally attracted to testing it again. After […]
Ever wonder about the memory comparison between CAS 8 and CAS 9 and how much difference in performance that CAS ratings give you. Here is a comparison that I made recently when I upgraded my RAM. This was done from the same computer with no other changes other than replacing the RAM. The memory capacity […]
I am always looking at different keyboards and recently I found this Ultra Mini Keyboard. I know you are thinking, is this a Logitech? It certainly looks like a Logitech. From the box down to the fonts it looks like a Logitech, but actually it isn’t. This is actually a knock off that has been […]
