Darren's IT Reference

What will you find here?

Did you ever wonder exactly what it means when somebody talks about a 64-bit CPU? Perhaps you're thinking:

"CPU? I don't even know what that is!"

Perhaps you're thinking:

"Sure, I'd like to know, but I don't even know what a bit is!"

Maybe you're wondering what the difference is between USB, USB2 and Firewire.

"IEEE-1394; what's that all about?"

Confused? Not for long...

Home networking is all the rage these days and the buzz word of the moment is Wireless. Components are cheap and easy to set up. And with the broadband revolution, just about everyone wants a big piece of the Internet. If these are more your kind of thing, then you may be wondering what the difference is between a hub, a switch, a router and a repeater. All those confusing networking terms...

Or perhaps you're just a speed freak. I am, whether on the road or using my PC. In which case, you'll no doubt want to know how to get the most out of your box, perhaps even how best to overclock your CPU.

Well, whatever your motivation was for arriving at this site, I hope that you find it a useful single point of reference where you will find answers to all your questions, whether they are simple high-level questions, or deeper requirements. If you can't find the answers you're looking for, why not post your question in the Forum. Either myself or someone else will respond.
