Gaming Tweaks Tweaks to optimize Windows for low latency online gaming2014-04-01 (updated: 2015-08-30) by PhilipTags: gaming, mmo, tweaks Online Gaming can often benefit from some fine-tuning of Windows TCP/IP settings and the Network Adapter properties. This article is intended to supplement our general broadband tweaks and list only TCP/IP settings that are specific to online gaming and reducing network latency. Some of these settings are also mentioned in our general tweaking articles, however, the emphasis here is on latency rather than throughput, and we have complemented the tweaks with more gaming-specific recommendations and settings that give priority to multimedia/gaming traffic, and may be outside of the scope of other broadband tweaks that focus on pure throughput. Some proficiency in using Command Prompt/PowerShell and editing the Windows Registry is expected. The Windows Registry can be accessed from the Start/Windows button -> type: regedit.

Turn Off Unnecessary Windows Services Windows is notorious for having useless features and CPU resource hogging programs/services enabled by default. Today’s post is about removing some of the useless services.

Since they (advanced users) were also helped by others to get used to things as newbies, the cycle continues. Yes, this is why the community will continue to grow at a rate we can’t even describe.
Anatomy of the Linux kernel – IBM Developer Given that the goal of this article is to introduce you to the Linux kernel and explore its architecture and major components, let’s start with a short tour of Linux kernel history, then look at the Linux kernel architecture from 30,000 feet, and, finally, examine its major subsystems. The Linux kernel is over six million lines of code, so this introduction is not exhaustive. Use the pointers to more content to dig in further. A short tour of Linux history Linux or GNU/Linux? Enable or Disable DCOM This documentation is archived and is not being maintained. Applies To: Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012 If the computer using Component Services is part of a network, Component Services needs the DCOM wire protocol to communicate with Component Object Model (COM) components on other computers. In a Windows-based system, by default, network computers are initially configured to enable DCOM. You can disable DCOM, but doing so disables communication with components on other computers.
