  1. Chrome and multiple users

    Go to edit the person in chrome settings and enable the desktop shortcut.
  2. Certain files that are in the process of being written to storage may become corrupted, but it's extremely unlikely that the entire filesystem will be corrupted. I've pulled the plug on several computers while they were running (it's not good for them so don't do it for no reason) but there was never any filesystem damage. I can pretty much guarantee that nothing will happen to your router if you unplug it.
  3. How i can learn more about networking ?

    Mess around in pfSense
  4. Web Development! Mac VS Windows

    I think Windows is better for programming in general because there is a lot more software supported on it. As long as they both have the software that you need, they'll both work fine and you should pick the one that you feel more comfortable with.
  5. Modmic

    I'm happy with my modmic 4. I don't think the 5 is a good value, but if you have extra to spend, it is slightly better.
  6. Is m.2 M good for a boot drive?

    For playing video games, an NVMe drive won't improve performance at all, but for working with huge video files, it's really nice to have.
  7. Good Reason To backup your data

    I agree, cloud storage gets pretty expensive once you go past a terabyte, which isn't much these days. Plus, I don't have anything to hide, but I don't like the idea of a company being able to see all my data any time they want, and encrypting it is a hassle. You're better off buying a couple external hard drives and keeping 3 copies of all your data yourself. However, you still need an offsite backup. For offsite, I just keep a hard drive at a family member's house, so I'm all set in backups.
  8. Cheap minecraft server

    I do know what I'm talking about, or else I wouldn't have responded. A raspberry pi works fine for a simple Minecraft server for a few friends to play on. I wouldn't host a public server on it, but it works well in a pinch just for building collaboration. Of course the ram is going to be the major limitation if you want to install a lot of mods or plugins, but it should be able to easily support the basics. I've never heard of the mod that the OP mentioned, so I don't know how demanding it is, but I was just trying to provide him some insight on a cheap solution that may work for him.
  9. Cheap minecraft server

    A Raspberry Pi B3 can run a Minecraft server fine for a few people, but I wouldn't go past 8.
  10. Would you put stickers on your case?

    I wouldn't put stickers on my case. It looks cleaner without them.
  11. I had a similar problem when I first built my PC and it ended up being the cable. Can you provide a link to the cable? The problem for me was with a Cablematters one, which is normally a good brand, but I got some AmazonBasics ones instead and they've been working great.
  12. @Jarsky was correct in saying that FreeNas is based on FreeBSD. Since your users are able to login without credentials, I'd imagine that the share is set such that guests can access it. You can change this on each share's settings in the samba config: [share_name] guest ok = no guest account = nobody #nobody is default account on Linux, not sure about FreeNas If you change the local directory permissions to 0700 then only the owner will be able to access it anyway, so that's probably an easier option.
  13. Each user needs to have a local Windows account and their user must have full access to their folder. (Or read only if that's what you want) Then they will log in with their Windows account. Sorry, misunderstood the question. I thought the server was running Windows, but it's FreeNas. I'm not really familiar with FreeNas, but I've messed around with it in the past and the interface is pretty intuitive. I'd imagine you need to make a new user for everyone and allow them to set a unique password. Then make folders for all of them that are owned by them and have 0700 permissions. Then make an individual share for each folder and specify "valid users =" as their username for each share. I work mostly with Linux in terms of servers, so I can't help much with FreeNas, but in terms of Samba I can help you with your configuration. Let me know if you need any help beyond this. I know it was pretty broad, but hopefully it helped.

    pfSense doesn't need a lot of ram; a single gigabyte would work. However, if you want to do a lot of caching, ram will help a lot in website load times.
  15. Plex Quick Start Guide

    Excellent guide, but it doesn't work well with the dark theme. Please set the text color to automatic. This is what it looks like:
