  • Yep, this is the case. And it's fine if you like iCloud which I don't. Nor does anyone else in my family including my daughter who is a professional news videographer that has used MacOS and iOS ...
  • It helps a bit. But not sufficient to solve the problem.
  • I had cataract surgery on both eyes about 5 years ago. Some of my experiences and findings: 1. Wow. The world sure does look different without the yellow/brown gel over my eyes! 2. My uncorrected ...
  • I just tried it and it seems to be more of a PhotoCopy than a PhotoSync and it's super easy to make duplicates of everything. And that's a real PITA to clean up.
  • I am a longtime iPhone user who recently acquired an iPad. I would like the photos I take on the iPhone to be transferred to the iPad. Ideally, this would be automatic but a manual sync would be ...
  • LOL. Happy I'm not alone in having that issue with the Group Policy Editor.
  • Replied in Fedora
    I've done Ubuntu, Mint and more but was less than satisfied. Arch is great but very complicated. Manjaro is a super-easy to setup derivative and I've been running it on multiple systems for several ...
  • 10G Ethernet cable is very doable. 10G adapters are readily available for $100 and up. But 10G switches and routers are going to be a big and expensive problem. I do run 10G between my desktop and ...
  • It wasn't always the case but Manjaro updates have given me no problems at all over the past year or so (running on multiple systems).
  • I call the Windows Start menu the Windows Stop menu. The only thing I use it for is the Shutdown and Restart options :-)
  • Are you compressing the data to make .ZIP files? Try making .7z files instead. 7z will utilize multi-threading whereas ZIP is normally single threaded.
  • I have wireless internet from a local company (Sail Internet). A small dish on the roof connects to my router via a POE injector. Cost is $55/mo flat, no contract, no data limits. Speeds have been ...
  • This can be fixed by reading the Date & Time the image was captured from the EXIF data and setting the file system timestamp accordingly. I would do this with Perl and ExifTool but maybe someone ...
  • Do you use the Windows 10 Photos app from Microsoft? Over the years, the various photo apps pushed out by MS have had the nasty habit of modifying the files without permission or notification. Thei ...
  • I added a 10G connection between my NAS and desktop on the cheap. It's just a direct connect between the two systems so no switch or router. For the NAS: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07CW2C2J1/ ...
  • There isn't a whole lot to discuss in you've specified ALL of the components. I imagine it's safe to assume they can tighten some screws, apply thermal paste to the cpu/cooler and plug things ...
  • When my old copy of Office 2000 became very troublesome on Windows 10, I switch to LibreOffice and it's worked great for me. Yes, it will save as in Office formats (e.g. docx) as well as PDF. Free ...
  • Yeah, as best as I can tell it's maxed on the drives. (4 x 6TB 5400rpm in RAID5). I could add a M.2 SSD as a cache but I'm not willing to spend $250 on the required QNAP controller. The current ...
  • Thanks for that. I'm not shocked but will conduct a few more experiments tomorrow (rebooting after changing the MTU). In any event, I won't be sad if the default MTU turns out to be a good as any ...
  • Correct, direct connect with no switch or router on the path. And, no I did not reboot both systems after selecting jumbo frames. Thank you for that excellent tip. I will try that tomorrow since I ...
