Could an external hard drive run games? - Page 2 - Storage I've got all of my games on a 2 terra HDD (2000 gigs) and every thing works extremely well for me, with the help of some programs i made to go along with it. I've got a program that replaces the shortcuts, adding a quick start up routine so that the games work correctly when going from computer to computer. The program simply checks the current computers registry keys upon start up, then add the appropriate registry keys, which i've manually added to .reg files for each of my games. So if they current computer doesn't have the right keys, they are installed, and the program does account for drive name changes. Once the registry key's are in place, the software then launches the designated software. So in short, i've got a custom extremely fast installation process for all my games to ensure comparability with every computer... so in essence, I plug my HDD in at my friends house, and can access and play any of my games without going through the slow installation process.

pwnat - NAT to NAT client-server communication home page (more sweet code) || follow my twitter || blog || email me || samy kamkar pwnat, pronounced "poe-nat", is a tool that allows any number of clients behind NATs to communicate with a server behind a separate NAT with *no* port forwarding and *no* DMZ setup on any routers in order to directly communicate with each other.

Read the paper, "Autonomous NAT Traversal", joint work with Christian Grothoff, Nathan S. Evans, and Andreas Müller published by IEEE at the IEEE P2P'10 Conference (bib, pdf) There is no middle man, no proxy, no 3rd party, no UPnP/STUN/ICE required, no spoofing, and no DNS tricks.

Remote control your torrents with uTorrent's WebUI I used to use uTorrent, and I always thought it was the greatest. (In spite of the fact that their "official" support forum is run by a small group of teens who are VERY hostile to new users, to say the least. You can get banned for simply helping a new user by answering their questions!) However, when I switched all of my systems away from Windows, and went with Ubuntu... I continued to ask the uTorrent people when they were going to come out with a version for Ubuntu.
