    Why does Alexa suck now?

    So I know Alexa was always an estimate. But recently (since they updated and basically went to a paid service). My site has dropped significantly in the rankings. Peaking in the low 90ks it has dropped to 130k over the last couple months. Interestingly enough each week/month is more trafficked...

    MySQL Headache and transferring Wordpress

    Hey Everyone, So the other day I realized I couldn't make any changes/new posts to my wordpress site. The culprit being that my database was somehow 1.1gb (turns out all those 150,000 spam posts that never got published actually did have an effect). So I figured, ok I'll delete em. First did...

    Wanting to build a Media PC on the cheap.

    Hey everyone, I'm looking to build a new media PC to replace the old Athlon X2 rig I'm currently using. I need the computer to play 1080p MKVs with DTS audio. I was able to get the Athlon X2 to play 720p files with DTS but 1080p were on the glitchy side. I need to be able to utilize the...

    Computer won't stay in standby or hibernate

    Assuming this has something to do with bios so maybe it goes in the hardware section? I recently just switched from an MSI 890GXM-G65 motherboard to a Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 motherboard. I didn't have this problem before with the MSI so I'm assuming its not a windows issue. The bios are severely...
