Soup Slayfest homies! Thought I would start a thread for neat Security related tips/tricks/hacks and other goodies of things that I find that might be relevant to your interests.

To start, these are some really good online file scanners (they can also scan URL's) and they check multiple virus databases so you don't have to rely on just one source. i.e. ClamAV, Anti-Virus, etc. They check them all! They work well and are pretty fast: ...

Script or program to swap Default Audio Device

I got a Logitech G930 Headset:
I want to program one of the programmable buttons on it to switch sound back to the speakers.
I tried to use script for the job, but its been waaaay too long sense I did anything useful. I cant even FIND the default audio device location in the registry to see if altering that will do the job (Windows 7). Changeing it in via control panel will get old ...

Trick for removing dead tracks from iTunes

I recently restructured how I organize my ipod and found that I had about 250 dead tracks. I didnt feel like searching for each one to delete them.

So I may need to delete dead tracks again.

So began my googling.

Here's the first part ...

Well I took apart the left earpiece to see why my mic stopped ...

Netflix Silverlight

I got netflix for my wife and myself and I'm trying to stream the movies to my computer (and to the wii later when we get the disk they are apparently sending us). Apparelty it requires Microsoft Silverlight to watch (because like most people, they suck ass and cant just provide it in a standard fashion rather then attempt to force some dumbass software in the way). I got that installed (supposedly) but it sticks ...

ASUS F8Sn CPU Upgrade

After hours on Google, I couldn't find the answer for this...

My sister wants to upgrade the CPU in her F8Sn from her T9300 (2.53GHz 800MHz FSB) to a T9800 (2.93GHz 1066MHz FSB). My question is whether or not the F8Sn can support the 1066MHz fsb. I don't want her to spend 500$ on a CPU if it's not going to work.

ASUS Tech Support was useless, they won't provide information because CPU upgrades are ...
