  • A MBP is really a weird choice for terminal connectino to a mainframe. I do not understand why you would spend thousands of dollars on design and being 5mm thinner, if all you need is a linux...

  • Drivers seem to be a Windows problem. A friend of mine swears by Wacom on Mac (I know, anecdotal) and I am using an Intuos Pro on Linux, and they have a mainlined kernel driver that just works™....

  • The lens corrections in darktable are done with the lensfun library, that does not have calibration data for the 18-135 yet. But You can help changing that! That is even mentioned in the page You ...
  • I don't think that makes sense, for a variety of reasons: 1. The lens needs to cover full frame. Granted, one can use FE lenses on E-mount, but then there goes the size- and cost advantage of APS-C ...
  • Yeah, I see Your idea. However, a good PSU with lower power-rating is always better (in the sense of reliability and protective circuity) than a cheapo high-power one. So for the sake of debunking ...
  • That PSU is WAAAYYY overdimensioned. With your proposed build, 350W is ample, maybe 450W is You step up the GPU. Saves money, or go for a more efficient one. More Watts does not mean better, and ...
  • No way he could point the thing at the bowl like that at this distance. May guess it that me made a photo of his hand holding the bowl, and then edited in a fisheye selfie of the two.

    It's a great...

  • Replied in Tight Squeeze!
    Exactly my thought. This is no review at all, just stating he does not like the grip. As a comparatively new member myself: does this call for a report for trolling in the forum rules?
  • You actually mention 2 things, backup and syncing. For the backup part, kiriak' proposal of back in time is very good. Let me throw in another consideration though: From Your description, it seems ...
  • Ah, it is probably a matter of opinion whether risk management is an approach or an alternative to security. My viewpoint is the latter, coming from a rather extreme comparison. I hope the airlines ...
  • Good comment, but You are confusing info security with risk management . For consumers, the latter is the best approach and You comment from here on is 100% right. For professionals, OTOH, the ...
  • Indeed. Which is why I suggest You read up on KPTI and Retpoline. Because that is what creeks was talking about. Why would I? Well, Since You wrote: Your statement "completely wrong" implies that ...
  • While these patches act on the operating system, creeks is not completely wrong. Most UEFI systems can be "live flashed" from within the OS. With windows, this happens with a simple EXE file.
  • Specs? pretty much any modern PC above ~600$ will exceed these specs. IMHO, for a laptop, build quality is probably the most important. Also, for photography, you want one with a good IPS screen. ...
  • Ubuntu is good and well documented, Fedora is more up to date. Rolling release distros always have the most recent packages, but for those, it is intended to read patchnotes before the updates not ...
  • Simplicity is a valid philosophy. Fine control is a valid philosophy. Each has up- and downsides. Everybody can choose a software that suits them. Saying a software that chooses control should...

  • On the contrary, the UX is great! It is intended to offer lots of control with a steep learning curve. The toolbox vs multitool comment is absolutely right.
    DT is great, it has a very different UX...

  • Uhm, the 220W PSU is a good choice if I understand You right, but the 70W is weird. The CPU has a TDP (= maximum power averaged over longer times, peak power draw might be higher) of 77 Watt. So if ...
  • +1 on the don't skimp part. But there is literally zero reason to buy a 750+ Watt PSU with a budget machine. Unless You want to overclock and use at least a RX Vega or dual GPU, any 500-550 Watt ...
  • Ah, I misunderstood this as a more general question, sorry. So yes. But the comparison is to the normal K chips that have the iGPU activated, and against these, the basic area is the same.
