      PayPal Problem - Some payments not going through   20 May 2017

      PayPal appears to be experiencing problems at the moment, resulting in people being billed but the transaction showing as failed on our end. If you have signed up for a new subscription, and the transaction is showing as pending on the forum, so you haven't gained floatplane access yet, and you have waited more than 10 minutes after purchasing it in PayPal, please go to https://linustechtips.com/main/failed_transaction_fix.php and follow the instructions. If you have any issues, please send me a PM (hover over my picture or username and click "message"), including the transaction ID, and I will try and sort it out for you.

  1. If you want raid, Linux has mdadm software raid built in. If you want a graphical interface, you could install a web management solution such as Webmin. Either solution is good, but I personally use Samba because I have more experience with Linux than FreeBSD.
  2. I was referring to using cloud storage, but I should have made that more clear.
  3. If all you want to do is backup, just get an offsite backup external hard drive (or multiple drives). It will be much cheaper than building a server or buying a premade nas, and you don't have the speed of your internet being a bottleneck as you would with cloud storage.
  4. Easy fix that's worth a try. Go to advanced settings for the VM and make sure that the "Cable Connected" box is ticked.
  5. Corsair Sabre RGB
  6. What language are you using and what functionality do you need? Here's a minimal quick example in Java int num1=2, num2=5; //Set initial numbers char mathOperation = '+' //Assign operation if(mathOperation=='+') //Check that the operation is addition int result = num1 + num2; //Add the numbers //Other operations here return result; //Return the result to whatever method called this
  7. Just get a USB SSD like this one from Samsung https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147512&cm_re=samsung_ssd_usb-_-20-147-512-_-Product It'll be a lot simpler than replacing a Wi-Fi card, which I'm not sure that you can do.
  8. Even a 750ti would be enough, and I've seen those as low as $75 brand new.
  9. Exactly, on my current PC nothing dips below 60fps max settings at 1440p. There's nothing you can do except upgrade, but I don't think it's worth it just for CS:GO. I lived with the smoke lag for a while, and it was annoying, but I just delt with it. It didn't result in me dying very often.
  10. VT-X is pretty much essential for virtualizing a 64-bit operating system. And yes, that processor supports it. All the newer Xeons will so I would go for it. Edit: I didn't really understand the question. VT-x is very important, but EPT is only necessary if you plan on doing nested virtualization, such as virtualizing a hypervisor.
  11. It's just a part of the game. It happened all the time when I was playing on my laptop. Just try not to look at them
  12. I use them for backups and used to use them to transfer data between computers. I currently have two 4TB external HDDs, one is onsite for frequent backups, and one is offsite at a relatives house for extra redundancy. Edit: Of course the offsite one is encrypted
  13. I wouldn't consider myself a fanboy, but there are definitely some brands that I favor over others even if the same product costs more. I like Google, Asus, Intel, EVGA, Dell, Anker, and some others.
  14. Corsair Sabre RGB is matte and has a nice clean (non-gamer-y) look
  15. Yep, they will all work well.
