Just a geek :)

Beware of wauzers, for they are crafty, and like cheese.

I'm a singaporean computer geek with a very wierd set of majors, and a odder sense of humour. Many people are convinced I'm an ultra intellegent dog, which I neither confirm nor deny. My avatar is a small organic canid of slightly uncertain heritage and a lot of attitude called Ash, who happens to be my public face on the internet.

I'm also one of the top users on superuser. While my answers and edits have hopefully gotten better over the years, there's occasions where I'm uncertain whether my edits are of acceptable quality or not. When this is the case, I rely on my cybernetic counterpart, Aibobot to do edits. Feel free to accept or reject these edits as you would those done by a new user.

comment Can I stop an Uruk from inviting all his friends to the party?
For the record... I ran unto him at random while hunting for the warchief he was bodyguarding. He didn't call in reinforcements, and he was alone enough that I finally managed to take him down. I suspect he didn't have time to. I'll need to confirm that though.

comment Installing VirtualBox Guest Additions on Windows 10?
I was replying to kino's comment rather than the question. My answer proper is below.

comment Connect two computers with RJ-45 ethernet cable?
The latter is fairly tricky, the former is essentially off topic, and may be a better SU question.

comment Connect two computers with RJ-45 ethernet cable?
OS might be important here. Also "All the configuration" would include some low level details, like setting up a local lan - even with fixed ip addresses. How automagical do you need this to be?

comment Which graphics card can pull off 4k resolution at 60Hz?
I suspect that its not just your resolution - I seem to recall you need DP for 60khz, and "Even mouse cursor is laggy" may indicate other issues. Nonetheless, purchase recs are off topic for the site proper, and I tend to recommend asking on root access. I don't remember anyone having a 4k monitor, but there's some degree of knowledge on video cards, and "the right questions to ask"

hm. Maybe cause I'm running a 64 bit guest on a 64 bit system on mine.

comment Can I stop an Uruk from inviting all his friends to the party?
Close enough, I guess. I'd note if there's an actual way to counter this, I may change my accepted answer. Thats a pretty stinky power to have.

comment Can I stop an Uruk from inviting all his friends to the party?
I'm not convinced if it answers my question entirely. You did mention the skill name, but not how to actually stop him from calling in allies (or that its not possible)

comment Do hard drives really have open cases now?
Helium is just one possible technology tho. Shingled recording and stuff like HAMR is also used to increase storage density. I think only HGST does helium filled drives, and other companies seem to have managed to match that density without helium.

comment Does end-user stress testing hardware serve a purpose?
Stress tests are useful when you're running high performance parts and intend to push parts to their limits. Something like furmark or a CPU stress test will let you know how your system will behave at the extreme end of its performance envelope. You'd have an idea if your system cooling is sufficient (By getting an idea of how hot your system gets), and if your cooling and power systems hold up to the strain. At the end of the day, its really personal preference. My system is pretty much hitting 99% gpu usage on some newer AAA games, and a quick 2-3 hour burn-in replicates that decently.

comment Tag cleanup weekend 1 - After action reports and impressions
The original plan was to run it every other month. I'll get the organisational matters up soon - I'm currently super busy IRL.

What OS? Could you describe your planned use for this in a little more detail?
