    This_guy1998 got a reaction from leadeater in An Open Letter to Linus Tech Tips from The Passthrough Post   
    As a user of both Linux and Windows, I think it would be common sense that everything may not work on the first try depending on what guides you use (I literally just had to nuke my Ubuntu install a few months back because I had screwed it up messing around with software and stuff). I use a mix of KVM (I've just started with messing around with advanced stuff like passthrough), VMWare (mostly because I use VMWare Workstation on my Windows PCs), and VirtualBox on my Ubuntu machine.
     
    Recently I had to use a OS X VM image (which are available online) for an Operating Systems class and guess what? I was one of few people in that class that got the VM image supplied to work on my Windows PC (wouldn 't work on my Linux box), but that was after modifying the image (as per instructions for this image) and even then it was painfully slow to do the tasks required (I was running this on a NVME SSD, plenty of RAM and CPU too).
     
    Since hackintoshs are hit or miss thats why I won't use them and since Apple won't do Mac Clones nor have user fixable computers anymore, I guess I will never have a PC with MacOS (I really want to switch to MacOS because of Windows 10).

    Good. One warning, most universities have very very mediocre career services. Don't ask me how I know. Same thing with people offering advice. Question the quality of just about everything (including what I write).

    Here, employers have no choice. You want to stay open on a Holiday? Cool. Pay your employees time-and-a-half. Outside of retail/restaurants, most businesses will close on stat holidays in Canada.

    This_guy1998 reacted to dalekphalm in Where is Ivan and Luke   
    In Canada, for a Statutory (Mandatory) Holiday, you either:
     
    1. Get the day off, or
    2. Get paid 1.5x your normal wage
     
    Each province has their own set of Statutory Holidays - but they pretty much all have the same 6-8 base holidays, with minor variations here and there. For example, In BC, Remembrance Day is a Statutory Holiday. Whereas where I live, in Ontario, it's a non-statutory holiday. Very few (if any) places are closed, and no one gets bonus pay.
     
    On the flip side, Ontario is the only province that observes Boxing Day as a Statutory Holiday.

    YOU GUY GET OFF FOR HOLIDAYS???
     
    I say that because it still blows my mind you guys are required to be off on standard holidays. Here in the US the only people that are get off for standard holidays are government employees, banks (I guess because technically the FDIC is closed on holidays), and usually people that work education (if the school or such is closed). The private sector isn't required to be off (this varies by state). Working retail for the last 2.5 years has ruined holidays for me (I may be off of school, but then that typically means I am working) (my employer is only closed on Christmas).
     
    It also blows my mind that maturity leave is so long up there too.

    This_guy1998 reacted to colonel_mortis in why does the LTT forum have Google and Amazon trackers on it?   
    The Amazon tracker is, as other have noted, for the Amazon ads. It is only included when an Amazon ad is displayed on the page (this means it's not included for Bronze/Silver/Gold contributors, who get no ads).
    The Google tracker is Google Analytics, and is used to monitor how the site is being used, to give a quantitative basis for future improvements.

    And once you connect and stuff you should get this in your Explorer's Quick Access with two OneDrive Options (top is my school's, the bottom is personal):

    yeah, traditional outlets (gizmodo et al) usually set aside a strict week for that. youtube channels usually spread them out over two weeks or so
    same thing happened for computex last year. the only difference here was just how much was being posted on Day 2/3 actually o_o maybe due to just how many genres of stuff was at CES

    I didn't do any kind of recap of my own because I was out all day. Since everything major has been announced and people have left CES already, I plan to do a recap of major announcements tomorrow (actually today because it is almost 2 AM here). I will say I am really impressed with 3rd gen Ryzen (just upgraded my dev box to 2nd gen Ryzen (2600) a few months back). When I do the refresh of my main rig next year (I am going for a 3-year refresh cycle, it was completed in the current config Spring 2017) I may use Ryzen instead of Intel.

    Honestly, I can't wait for Nvidia to fill their next-gen product stack in the next year. I honestly can't wait for Intel's keynote (It seems like intel has been really working on IoT and other chips that are outside the regular PC market, ex. Drone 1000 light show and Intel Curie were a major part of their CES 2016 Keynote), so I'm excited for anything that happens in that keynote. AMD I want to see their next-gen GPUs and Ryzen 2.
     
    Other things I can't wait to be announced:
    5G deployments from the big 3 carriers here in the US (on Verizon (phone) and ATT (iPad with unlimited) LTE in some areas I can get about 50mb/s down, 10-25mb/s up, so who knows what speeds we can see on 5G networks (I can think of a few uses in home/office use that this will be helpful)) Cars of the future (electric, autonomous, etc...)  IoT and many more Tbh, since alot of big announcements happen outside of tech shows now, I kinda could care less (but still is appreciated) about the content around desktop and gaming PCs at CES now (Computex, press, and gaming events are a thing). I am excited about the possibilities of technology that is being used in ways that is hasn't been used before. Yes I do have a gaming PC, gaming laptop, and a dedicated Linux PC that are from within the last two years, but Moore's law is kinda leveling out everywhere (why do you think Intel and AMD both have physically huge chips on the high-end).
     
    So the some of the focus manufacturers are doing now is:
    what can we connect to the internet how can we make data centers more efficient so the consumer can use smaller and less powerful devices that offload the processing power to the cloud while having the same performance (my college does this with a good chunk of their general-use computer labs by using a VDI infrastructure to cut down on costs (both licensing, manpower, and energy) how can we engage the customer how can we produce and roll out this new technology as fast as we can while having quality, security, and effective costs (for both them and the consumer) Part of why I am majoring in IT is because I want to do good things, show people what technology can do, and help people with technology (been doing the last two for years already).
     
    I look forward to this thread. Because this will be the first year in three years I've been able to follow CES somewhat closely (last year, I was on vacation during CES so I kinda followed it but was busy doing other things a good chunk of the week and in 2017, I was a senior in High School and working in the evenings during the week of CES).

    Used to be I relied mostly on CNET, "Android/Windows/etc" Authority for my CES (and other tech news) coverage (pre-2015) because I used to mainly keep up with consumer electronics and software projects (mostly fiddling around with them and they usually were some kind of mod for the consumer tech).
     
    (That was before I dove deep and started following and messing with newer computer hardware, which was strange because I've tinkered with computers since I was 7 (software mostly), got into messing with PC hardware (mostly hand-me-downs), when I was 10. Got the first mobile i3 in a laptop in 2010 when I turned 12. Kept up with consumer electronics (bought some with gift money) and software projects from 12-16. Then I learned about new PC hardware and how to build a PC from strach when I was 16 (2015). After that when I was 17 (mid 2016) I built my first PC. I turned 18 towards the end of 2016 and started learning networking and coding (Java and Python) at a local college when I was a High School Senior. Started college as a IT major in 2017 and turned 19 not to long after. Those are just some highlights of me and my technology journey.)
     
    The way The Verge has been lately with some of their PC content and their attitude towards content creators on Youtube and other platforms I try to ignore them now. 
     
    Edit:
    It's all these site I used to follow that are related to Android Authority (some of them are new too by the looks). Also Pocketnow is a good one too.
