[ubuntu] Xorg stopped working with Nvidia. Forced to use Nouveauview story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello. I have no idea how and why this happened because I rarely turn off the computer. So this could have happened days ago. Anyway. I have tried everything from reconfigure xorg, purging and reinstalling nvidia and xorg. But nothing Xorg still won't work. So now I'm using Nouveau and the screen resolution is terribly low.

Also, I have seen a few occasions where the preceding number is 1, not 0. What does this mean? (Hardware)

This smug guy thinks blowing in NES carts never did anything.view story

http://forums.anandtech.com – http://youtube.com/watch?v=4Gf9mtXnJfM He says it's all in your head. He's wrong. Of course confirmation bias is a real thing, but he was absolutely wrong to use this as an example. I just bought SMB3 from a flea market and recorded myself trying to get it to boot. The experience was exactly like EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. (Hardware)

Did I damage my motherboard??view story

http://forums.anandtech.com – I recently got a new case. Last night when I got done setting everything up and turned on the PC I had a lot of interference in my audio coming from my sound card.

Fastest Android browser?view story

http://forums.anandtech.com – I'm using a Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and I thought Chrome would be the fastest but Dolphin is way faster than Chrome, Opera, or the stock Samsung browser. For example just scrolling the anandtech forums, it stutters nearly every time the address bar comes back into view in chrome and opera. And in general, moving around web pages is smoother with dolphin. (Hardware)

My favorite Chrome extensionsview story

http://forums.anandtech.com – Adblock Plus. Goes without saying. Should be a standard install for everyone. Beyond that, I've loaded a dozen or so additional extensions. Some favorites: Context Menu Searech. Add search engines to the context (right-click) menu. Highlight any text in a web page and launch just about any kind of search you like on that text.
