  1. I'm pretty sure Minecraft has used more than one core for a lot longer than 1.14...
  2. With the release of 1.14+, hardware requirements have skyrocketed for even a few players. I'd recommend the strongest CPU you can get, and the optiplex should not even be considered.

    What do you mean "locked"?
  4. Yeah, if you don't have access to those then you will have to contact them. Port forwarding is the less likely cause of the two, as I think about it more.
  5. If you can access that test web server (python) from a different computer at the same campus, and can ping it from another campus but not access the test server, then there are a couple things to check for. You'll either need port forwarding, which would be something you'd set in the router at your campus, or your campus' firewall is blocking that connection, which of course you'll need access to that firewall's configuration for.
  6. I just read this more thoroughly. So it sounds like you already have a VPN setup and some existing web servers. Does this server you want to add need to be up right now? I would highly recommend waiting for your IT staff to come back if at all possible. The chances of messing something with the existing configuration up while trying to add this are very very high, especially if you are new to this kind of stuff.
  7. What you really need to do is learn how to setup and use Nginx, a real web server. If you are just trying to share files, you want SFTP (secure FTP). For the actual communication channel from site to site but not being public to the internet, I recommend a site-to-site VPN using something like Wireguard. It will take a lot more work to get those setup than what you have now, but you need a real solution, not a hacky Python web server. You will really need to find someone nearby who can and will help you out with this, because it will not be doable to figure this all out by trial and error. I don't know if you have an IT director or network/sysadmin, but if you do they should know how to do these things I just mentioned. If you don't, I recommend outsourcing it to an MSP or something. Your time is too valuable in a corporate setting to attempt this without professional aid.
  8. Agreed. GPU is the only thing worth upgrading and if you don't already have an SSD in this level of a build then get one. Other than those, save your money for other stuff you want
  9. I was referring to the "Bla bla bla, so what?", not the logic.
  10. Not a very mature response. I didn't say either of those things. If his CPU bottlenecks enough then a GPU upgrade will have zero effect on his gaming performance.
  11. I would not recommend this, it will bottleneck modern GPUs.
  12. Then your only option is emulation, which I don't think has been done. You can look up "macintosh emulator"s I suppose. I would just dev on Windows until you can afford one of the other, much better, options everyone else here has recommended. I've been where you are, without a lot of processing power and no budget, and that restricts your options a lot, especially when we're talking about Apple products. However, in your opening post here, you said a lot of it is aesthetics and simplicity. Those are often the first things traded in favor of lower prices or better performance. I think you will have to make the trade off right now and learn on Windows until you save up enough for a different solution. Just focus and getting started and learn the iOS dev part before you spend too much time or money or effort getting a Mac if you can do it on Windows now for free.
  13. Well if that's the issue and you can't access it then you can't run any VMs.
  14. Pinging you since I think OP meant to and you seem to be knowledgeable on this
