  • Why does Netflix kill my Fibre Op?

    I have 70 mb/s with 50 mb/s upload Aliant Fibre Optic internet with an Actiontec R100H Router. I get full speed when wired, about 65mb/s when on wireless, but when someone goes on Netflix on an Apple TV connected directly to the Actiontec, the wireless speed drops to below 1 mb/s on my laptop! There is no way Netflix should be using over 65 mb/s to download a movie or show...

    Why does my speed decline so much with Netflix running on wired Apple TV?

  • Laptop screen all blacks show up as green. (picture included)?

    On my laptop, all the black colours show up as green. Not tinted, they actually appear as pure green. In videos or games, all the darker colours appear as green.

    This occurs in the bios and post screens as well, not just while running Windows, so it's either a graphics card issue or a bad screen or cable. It works fine plugged into an external monitor with VGA or HDMI.

    If I crank the brightness up on the laptop, the greens turn back into blacks, but everything is extremely washed out due to brightness.

    Anyone else experience this? Remember, its not a tint, the blacks are quite literally turned into greens.

    If I take a screenshot, the colours appear properly, so I took a picture with my phone. Notice the start bar, and where the lighter Aero scheme grey colours are, the tint does not appear.

    Here is a screenshot (or maybe a greenshot...) with the brightness slightly up to remove SOME of the green, but not enough to remove it all. Again, notice the start bar!

    I can post more pictures of varying brightness levels if it might help.

    What's up with this?

  • RCMP Officer Life Question?

    Do RCMP officers get moved all around Canada? How do they maintain relationships and friendships if they always move around? How can they get, say, married?

    I don't know timeframes, maybe they stay in one place for 10 years, but I have a friend interested (not me) in joining, and he's concerned about these things. We looked around but couldn't find anything on it, does anybody here know?

  • C++ Multiple Source Code files?

    Alright I already asked this question a few hours ago, so I'm going to rephrase it easier.

    I have multiple source code files in my C++. I have variables declared in my main source code file. My other source code files come up with "undeclared identifier" when being compiled, because they cannot see the variables being declared and initialized in the main .cpp file.


    The header files are the same way. I'll give a quick example..

    I have:

    const int MaxArraySize = 100;

    In my main file and this in a header..

    class anIntArray {


    int Array[MaxArraySize];

    int Top;

    int IntoArray;




    int Insert(int);

    int Remove();

    int Empty();

    int Full();

    int Depth();

    void Display();


    No when the header is being compiled, it says "undeclared identifier, MaxArraySize" because it can't see the MaxArraySize = 100 from my main cpp file...

    Any help?

    The other, second biggest issue I have is that I have an ofstream ClassFile declared in the main file and it can't be seen by any of my other .cpp function files except the main file, which it is declared in.

  • C++ ofstream issue with multiple files?

    Okay, so basically I have made header files for my classes, seperate .cpp files for my class methods and functions...

    And here's my issue. I'm getting error 2065 ClassFile 'undeclared identifier' from seperated .cpp files, like some functions i have, and all my class method .cpp files that try to use ClassFile, where "ClassFile" is declared in the main .cpp file as ofstream ClassFile...

    In short, I declared my ofstream ClassFile in my main functions .cpp file, and now my other functions and methods (which are in different files) cannot compile because of this error.

    I HAVE #include <fstream> in all my cpp files...

  • No Sound / Restart in Windows 7?

    Alright so I'm a computer technician, but I'm currently at home and have no diagnostic tools. This is my own personal computer as well, and this issue is something I haven't encountered before.

    Anyways, I can be playing a game, or just watching a movie, and then the whole computer will freeze for about 1 second, then unfreeze and there will be no sound whatsoever for 3 seconds, then it will totally turn off.

    This happens about once an hour or so, making it impossible to watch a movie or have an extended gaming session.

    Any thoughts on this? I've blown compressed air into everything and cleaned it all out, reseated the cpu and the RAM, checked all connections and all the basic stuff. I'm wondering now if it could be a software issue....

    Any thoughts?

  • Serious Texting Addicted Girlfriend?

    So this is a little strange, but here's some background.

    I've been dating my current girlfriend for quite a while now, with a few break ups for a few months each. Every time we break up for a few months, she literally has a new boyfriend within days of us breaking up.

    That said; she lied about having boyfriends until a couple days ago when she finally admitted to having boyfriends retardedly quickly after our breakups.

    Here's my main question... is there a such thing as texting addiction? She texts first thing when she wakes up. Doesn't even look at me or say good morning. Goes straight to her phone. After sex, she goes straight to her phone. After showers, after dinner, during dinner. She literally has her cellphone beside her plate at the dinner table, and answers it as soon she gets a text. My parents live in the country, and it's an hour drive away. On the drive to visit them, we won't say a single word, she'll have her head buried and text the whole time. She text's on dates, she always has the phone in her hand, and she's buying a new $400+ cellphone every couple months.

    Its ridiculous. She told me she only texts girls, but last night she told me she lied and text's a lot of guys too.

    Is she possibly setting up other relationships in case ours go wrong? That, in my opinion, is a mild form of cheating.

    And I'm fairly certain she's addicted to texting. I made her put her phone away last night, and after 10 minutes (literally) she said she started to feel "anxious" and "uneasy" and had to check it.

    It's unbelievable. It's enough to make me break up with her.

    What the hell is going on?

  • Secondary Monitor - Yellow Tint / No Blue Color Correction?

    When I plug into the left port on my graphics card (XFX Radeon HD 4890), the secondary monitor (no matter what monitor or what cable I use, no bent pins) has a yellow tint. In the Catalyst Control Center, when I try to adjust the blue color levels, nothing happens. Green and red levels work fine. Clearly my graphics card's left port is unable to display blue colors. Whats up with that? Any suggestions? I've already filed a ticket with XFX.

  • WoW Cataclysm - Hmmm?

    I currently have 3 accounts. Check:

    Account A

    1) 80 Resto / Ele Shaman

    2) 70 Rogue

    Account B

    1) 80 Warrior

    2) 72 Rogue

    3) 71 Hunter

    Account C

    1) 80 Warlock

    Now, personally, I'd think account B would be the logical choice, but I love my Warlock. The only issue I have is if I want to roll another toon, I'll have to start from scratch, whereas my other accounts all have alts in the 50-70 range.

    Hmmm... should I just stick to my one fave class (lock) or should I diversify a bit and use another account? I don't want to pay for Cataclysm for 3 accounts, and I'm sick of paying for 3 game cards ($120 every two months, essentially.)

  • 2003 Honda Civic Si Hatchback only?

    Some of my friends and I are buying my girlfriend a 2003 Honda Civic Si for her birthday. Now; one of the civic's I'm looking at is NOT a hatchback but is apparently an SI model. I thought that the 2003 Civic Si's were all hatchbacks (keep in mind, I'm talking the Si, not the regular civic.).

    Is there a sedan (non hatchback) version of the 2003 Civic Si? Also; what is its performance like in contrast to the previous (2000 or so) models?

  • Blues Guitar Beginner - > Not a Guitar Beginner though?

    So anyways, I've been playing guitar for years but have only really played Rock and Metal (by metal I mean death metal [all shall perish sorta stuff], and some black metal [children of bodom])

    I can shred like anybody, I have technique down pat and intense speed, also musical knowledge.

    However; my soloing abilities are METAL... meaning I basically do huge runs up and down scales and modes, and sweep pick arpeggios and chords, I don't really do a terrible amount of other things. I mean, I'll occasionally throw in a bend or whatnot, but mostly just fast stuff.

    I want to start playing slower bluesy stuff with more feeling, and then incorporate my speed into it and do some Blues Shred. Any idea where I should begin when learning the blues? I know all the scales and such, I'd really just like a reference as to who I should listen to.

    I know a lot of blues musicians as well, but I'm not sure which ones to start out with. Any suggestions are appreciated! Also, links to websites that might give short lessons on blues bending techniques would be helpful as well! ^_^

    I no longer have time to go to the gym any more, I'm busy with school and work. I purchased a bench press, which also has a preacher curl add-on.

    Anybody know of a good way to work out with just my small home-gym, or a reference or site which may help me out?

    I'm not afraid to get on the floor and do pushups, situps, etc. I just don't really know where to start without a personal trainer >.>

  • Broken Collarbone Sling-Time?

    I recently broke my collarbone while snowboarding (broke it on Tuesday, December 30th), and now I have a sling.

    Now here's my question:

    I'm a full time C++, Visual Basic, Java, SQL and COBOL programmer, so I'm typing on a computer a lot. I find it easier to take my arm out of the sling to type, as I rest it on a desk so it is still supported.

    Unfortunately, I have limited medical know-how and I don't know if this will prevent my arm from healing or slow down the process. If anybody knows if removing my arm from a sling is bad, please tell me.

    Also, my doctor said nothing about removing my arm from the sling, nor did he give me a specific time to do it. He just told me "If it hurts, don't do it.", and it does not hurt to remove it from the sling.

  • Boot problem?

    Alright heres how it goes:

    I had no DVD drive in my PC, so i moved my harddrive to another computer, installed my OS again, then put the harddrive back into my original PC. Now, as soon as you turn the PC on, theres is 4 small clicks from the harddrive, at the exact interval each time. The computer gets to the boot screen (select safe mode, last known, etc), and no matter what you pick, it slightly loads, then the harddrive clicks, i get a BSOD, and the computer restarts. On my other PC, the harddrive boots into Vista just fine.

    Another thing, I tried to put the DVD drive in my original PC, and when trying to boot with the Vista DVD, it says "SYSTEM DISK ERROR, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER" or something alone those lines....

    anyways....any help? bad harddrive? bad mobo? anything?

  • Why does everyone hate the Krank Revolution?

    Everyone says its a crappy amp, and that Mesa's and 5150's kill it....

    Its definately not true. While Mesa's and 5150's are good, the Krank is just as good, if not better. Everyone hates them though. In my opinion, its because they are up and coming, and everyone wants to be traditionalists. I have a Revolution head and 4x12, and it owns my bandmates 5150 half stack. Any guitar players have any thoughts?
