10. Awesome off-site backup

Backups: Well know we need them and most of use at least one of the available ways to backup. If we don't, we'd be well served to ponder something Mike Prestwood recently said:

"There are two kinds of people; those that back up - and those that will."

In this article I'd like to show you an off-line backup solution that is so simple to set up and use that you'll never again have an excuse for not backing up important work.

41. Laptop PCs: basic troubleshooting and repair

Individuals who seek to get work done away from an external power source cite usable battery life as one of the key factors involved in how much work they can get done while on the go. Yet many of those same individuals don't know how much latitude they have in controlling power consumption while operating on battery power, nor do they always take the steps necessary to maximize battery lifetime. Over the long term, proper storage of your battery when not in active use can also extend its lifetime significantly as well.

42. M.2 to M.2 SSD Image Transfer

The M.2 2280 form factor solid state drive is becoming more prevalent in today‘s computers because of its ability to save space and pure speed.  The M.2 port accepts two interfaces, the mSATA and the NVMe, the mSATA has two keys on both sides (B+M) and the NVMe has one key on the right side (B).  The NVMe uses 2 more PCIe lanes than the mSATA, because of this many people are switching to the NVMe interface.  At the time of this writing it is unusual to come across a PC with 2 separate M.2 ports.  Also it is difficult to find adapters that properly accept the NVMe interface.

70. The Wonder of Network Print Servers

Network print servers are an inexpensive and great solution to a common home or office network.  Sure you can "share" printers attached to particular machines, but that creates a dependency on that machine being up and running.

With a network print server, that dependency disappears. People on the network can print without a particular machine being on and available.

They solve one other important problem, too.
