PCI Express "Hacking"

I found myself needing to fit a x16 PCI Express card in a x1 PCI Express slot.  Fortunately, the PCIe standard allows for this, but you may need to perform a little hacking first.

Easily share wireless settings

I was faced with an issue where I had multiple users that required a wireless profile to be setup.  Unfortunately, the powers that be, determined that the wireless settings should be as complicated as possible.  To make things easier, I came up with the following way of automating the setup of a wireless profile on Windows 7.

Final Fantasy XIV Benchmark (Fullscreen work-around)

Update: Running at 1920x1080 on medium, I went from 4501 in a window to 4781 full screen (about 6% better)

I've come up with a relatively simple way for people to try running the benchmark in fullscreen.  It is probably not perfect and of course you use it at your own risk.  But, for those wanting to see how well your card performs in fullscreen, you should now be able to.
