ITT: We share tips and advice on technology related things.

To easily remove tight cable ties without damaging cables use a pair of pliers, and crush the ratchet mechanism. The tie will fall apart.

dont remember what this is but it looks techy in the image preview

also, hitting the super key ("windows key" generally) + pause/break on windows brings up the system specs. Generally one of the first things I do when getting on a public computer, so I can see how many tabs I can plan on having open etc.
