How to

Not necessarily personal, but how to do something. Make it or fix it, not necessarily technical, maybe carve a boomerang from scratch :P

  1. Mod Candy for You! part 1

    Pre-ramble:
    I've been thinking on how to do this for awhile now and whether to do it in a forum thread or not, but forum threads can get messy so I'm doing this in hopes others will either create their own blog, OR send me stuff to post. I just need a functional version.

  4. Video GPU restart, without rebooting.
