  • no, this was a pretty factual, useful post from him.   Directing people at MS urls for more info, and giving sound advice.
  • I think the integrated octos compromise performance, and there's more non standard buttons to confuse in an emergency situation.   Definitely another case where you donate your primary.   I ...
  • i've hung the rig with a coiled lanyard, though i discovered during a safety stop at Truk that these will break with age.   Now I use a braided rope (the nauticam one) with metal clips as my ...
  • As Craig notes, it's easy to spend a ton of money here, and for a newer diver, probably not productively.   If you go to ILC for a bigger sensor, you're probably blowing past on budget.   However, ...
  • Oracle updates their jdk once a quarter on a set schedule.   Next one coming third week of July. OpenJDK releases on the precise same schedule, with a delay of 0 days to a couple weeks.
  • with a 10gbe connection, it can in some ways exceed the performance of a SATA based SSD.   Those top at about 540MB/s.   But I can access my mirrored pair of SSDs on the NAS as fast as 800MB/s.  ...
  • ok, per that, and your declaration that video is not of interest to you, does point to this intel cpu as better call, provided you can get it at list price.   I'm seeing hucksters try to sell it ...
  • this can be massive = for XPS 13 a couple gens back, 16 hours vs 10.
  • or that snapshot.   guess where that's available?
  • run two browsers.   One account on each. I use method of have my work and personal gmail available.   Occasionally to access a second twitter account.
  • can you actually obtain this cpu, without paying a bad premium?  Or would you be waiting for supply to settle?   At list, its higher clock for some cores might outweigh the 2 extra cores of the ...
  • Though true (esp the banal 'raid isn't backup' religion here), it sounds like we don't need to spend any more time helping you then. I'll just note that Amazon isn't going anywhere.  It's more ...
  • the performance gain is 100 steps forward. unfortunately, as you've found, the system makers are overcharging for upgrades to SSD side, as they traditionally have as well for memory upgrades.   You ...
  • pre-Covid-  the notion was that this could lead to a massive uptick in those choosing not to own cars, because you can just order the generic driverless uber.   It would be a maturation of the ...
  • We're already there to a certain extent.    Those equipped with remote assistance connectivity already can be disabled, and those that aren't are pretty close given how computer driven they are. (I ...
  • how stable do you feel? if your intent is to shoot bird, you probably want a very long lens, and the prior post's option 3 (water bag) is probably your only game.   No one is building a ...
  • Replied in ZFS wakes up
    rsync can just propagate any bit rot.   The key is two parallel copies on the master, or at least the master backup that then gets syncd elsewhere. mint is not used for production. Enterprise Linux ...
  • Can't get around the problem that Linux is not a single entity.   It's more akin to a movement.   The progressives protesting around the world right now are not all that aligned.   They have ...
  • as long as they stick to $10/month, it's hard to beat.  If that changes...unfortunately inertia is sticky and it's difficult to move on. So best to occasionally sample the competition.
  • The Synology Play line is intended for this, and many of the QNAPs are, and come with a remote. I would expect the WDs to be a good step behind the first two. I've never hooked it up direct myself, ...
