Re: Looking into new water cooler!

my rig sets 2 feet from my head when I sleep. I blacked out any LED I could find on my system. Helps for the nights I leave the thing running to crunch on downloads (DSL Sucks) or trans-coding.

Re: ESXI home lab-ish

Still installing VMs. So far have Win XP/7/10, Server 2016, and Ubuntu Mate 18.04 installed and updated. I also want to play with dockers, and kick the tires on Plex, and try out different IP security cam setups. As for the Ryzen, I have not run one before, or run just a single install on it. I have...

ESXI home lab-ish

https://i.imgur.com/sUSGhNI.png Decided that I needed a stand alone VM server at home to play around with. Started looking at old Dell R710/720 servers on Ebay and decided that the electric bill couldn’t handle going that route. That and EEC RAM and SAS drives are not cheap... So I dug through my j...

Re: Anyone into 3d printing?

I have Cura installed and used it to do my idea to get a general idea how long it would take to print and just to see if I could get it right. Generating the GCODE and it printing can be two different things lol, but 99% of the time the projected time is off by the slicers. The longer the print, mo...

Re: NES Classic or SNES Classic?

The zapper tech depended on the known constant of how CRT's rendered lines and the set refresh rate. Modern LCD refresh rates and how they render lines F's all the sweet timing to hell and gone. But yeah, the NES and SNES classics are HDMI and come with a cable. Controller cables are a bit short tho...

Re: Using Robocopy for backups

Shouldn't copy open files anyway. Thats how files get corrupted. Robo does do security if you turn the /SEC switch on. You can set a Robo script to run on a schedule.

Re: Win7 32 to 64?

If you have a working 32 bit key, all you need is a comparable level 64 bit disk. So say its a 32bit oem home key, you need a 64 bit oem home disk. Install the 64bit version, with the 32bit key done. Edit: if this on something like a Dell, that is a bulk key. Those can be tricky to do, tracking down...

Re: Ditching Cable

I've pretty much had it with Spectrum TV, tired of their high prices for less channels. I'm keeping the high speed internet though, so I was wondering what other services you folks use instead of cable/satellite. I saw an article on FUBO TV that looked promising, my only requirement is that it get ...

Re: Ditching Cable

I think data caps for internet are stupid. Friend has a satellite connection because he lives in the middle of no where. He is limited to 10GB a month. My daughter can do that in a week because 99% of what she watches is streamed content. Only 2 shows she watches on broadcast TV and that only becaus...
