Haswell Overclocking Guide [With Statistics] First and foremost: Expect overclocking results to differ. We should all know by now that not every chip is created equal. With Haswell, this is more true than ever. I'm serious. Your motherboard isn't nearly as large of a factor as it used to be. It's almost all up to your luck with your CPU now. Expect a very wide variance in end results. Set Uncore (AKA Ring Bus) to core ratio to manual. Override voltage mode the same thing as manual voltage mode. If you simply raise the multiplier on the core and change the voltage, you'll probably run into a bad overclock because the overclocked ring bus will hinder the core overclock.

You'd generally rather have stock ring bus if that means getting 100mhz faster core clock. I've posted benchmarks under this section somewhere, which shows graphs proving ring bus settings to be of little consequence in benchmarks and applications.

How to Encrypt Your Internet Traffic | OMNINOGGINOMNINOGGIN. This is the coolest trick I learned while working at Blinkx. At the time, our management really hated when we go on any type of instant messaging applications. I also suspected that our messenger conversations and other internet activities were being monitored. I was pissed so this is what I did to combat their nosiness. Open an SSH Tunnel to a Remote Machine There are a couple ways you can do this (one through Putty and one through Cygwin).

Personally I like the Cygwin method since it requires one command line. Download and install Cygwin. That’s it! There are two ways to get this done. If you want to pay to do it the easy way, you can use programs like ProxyCap to handle all of your traffic routing.

Raspberry Pi. Unique Electronics and Projects. It's no secret Amazon.com's prices change frequently. Sometimes, many times a day. CamelCamelCamel.com is a good place to track the price of items at Amazon. You can see the history and also get an alert when the price falls below a certain point. The only problem is, you can't track digital items such as Kindle Books. I decided to make a Python script that tracks the price of items on Amazon and e-mails you when the price falls below a certain point.

Let's start with all of our import statements import urllib import urllib2 import string import sys from bs4 import BeautifulSoup import sqlite3 from datetime import date from time import sleep import sys import argparse We will use two arguments: the URL and the target price. The magic happens with Beautiful Soup. Next we use an instance of urllib2 to open the page of the product. We follow the same procedure to find out the title of the item. Next, we open a file and store the values. Here is the send_text(message). Install Windows from usb - Home page.
