Thanks! The little (actually, not so little) beast is also capable of boosting low voltage and bucking high voltage (the latter has never been a problem where I live; the former is). In the past month, it's been in boost mode a total of six hours. If I'm actually sitting at the computer working on something when the power goes out, I have five minutes to go into the settings to change them to manual shutdown so I can finish what I'm doing (on average, I can run 116 minutes, give or take, depending on what I'm doing, before the battery runs out).

It doesn't look very big but it weighs over 70 pounds (75 lb. shipping weight)! I had to have help getting from my mail service to my truck and from my truck into the house.

Windows 7 Pro 64 bit

I know this sounds wrong but I get best performance with no page file at all - zero on all drives. I've got one computer with 4GB and one with 16GB and I run all kinds of graphic and rendering apps and it really does better without a pagefile.
Disabling the pagefile will improve some aspects of performance but cost you elsewhere. There is also the placebo effect which can be very powerful.

Question about connection limits and file sharing - Windows 7 Pro X64
Hi - I've done a bit of searching and haven't come across a definitive answer on this. It seems that there is a rule that there is a 20 connection limit on Windows 7 Pro 64-Bit but the responses seem to vary on what exactly this means. So, with the setup below, what would the limits be? ...
