Colour key – Venn Jordan Pedro
- Little PSA to get the show started since I almost fell for this one.
- Plenty of i350-T4 cards floating around on Ebay and Amazon for $45 / $60.
- In all my years of working with junk like this I had never seen one with DELTA printed on the transformers.
- Times have changed so I figured it was something new but, it bugged me.
- I asked the internet and yeah, turns out knockoff NICs are now a thing.
- Had a knockoff in my cart before I did the search.
- Moral of the story: Look for an embossed DELTA on the transformers when buying used.
- If you want something with a warranty get 3GTeck.
- 81% of page loads globally and 91% in the US!
- Those are very good numbers indeed, and isn’t surprising, as I have noticed more sites using HTTPS, especially in the last few years.
- If you would like to help they would love contributions from the community and businesses, and are dependent on them so they can keep making the web even more secure.
- Gone are the days of me cutting Comodo a cheque for a SSL cert.
- Don’t miss doing that, nope, no sir.
- And gone are the days of excuses for not having an ssl cert
- There’s even a script you can chron to renew it.
- The calculator being a Snap never made any sense.
- The Ubuntu software store will be a snap based version though.
- Nice!! There will be Multi-monitor support in GDM, finally!
- This means when you logout to GDM it will maintain your monitor configuration and placement from the desktop.
- And then, when you want to login to a different desktop environment, say Fluxbox your monitor configuration won’t change!
- This has been an annoying issue for a very long time, which I fix with an xorg.conf.
- Can we also have gdebi back, at least for the minimal installs?
- All the chinese distros seem to have a really nice UI.
- Deepin and UKUI are, aesthetically speaking, freakin’ awesome!
- The Ubuntu Kylin team is in the process of revamping their user interface with lots of eye candy, the look of Windows 10, and in Qt!
- The drag and drop virtual desktop panel is a nice touch.
- Ubuntu Kylin is very popular in China, and is integrated with many of the most used Chinese web services.
- And it is so refreshing to see the Chinese Linux distros so focused on the desktop UI and user experience.
- Now that Microsoft is becoming a SaS company, this makes sense, especially since they run Linux for just about everything now, including Azure.
- ATP is not an Anti-Virus, it’s an enterprise focused security management tool.
- Quick and simple, this allows you to turn a MIDI control surface into a keyboard.
- With a DAW you are limited to MIDI CC mapping to pre-exposed controls.
- This will allow Mackie like functionality, and then some.
- It’s really the best of both worlds since it allows you to add some Mackie-like functions to your generic MIDI.
- Remember Giver?
- It was something included in Mint (and other distros) back in the day.
- Solid way to boop a file over the network.
- The Mint critters missed it so much they made something a little better.
- The idea is to recreate the core functionality offered by Giver.
- Warpinator is a temporary name.
- I suggest “totes a legit copy of Superman.wtf”.
- You could use this to build your next Linux server so it counts.
- This is extremely handy!
- And saves a lot of time for us hardware enthusiasts.
- And makes sense, because it turns out that computer hardware is one of the most sold items on Ebay.
- The UK LabGopher also includes the EU ebay listings.
Slice of Pi
- Oh! Is this why they were holding the 8GB versions?
- Don’t overclock your Pi, unless you buy one of those adorable little heatsinks.
- They only planned to make 1K units and when you think about it, that’s still a big run.
