    Funimation leave's Crunchyroll's VRV on Nov 9

    But consumers love having an app for everything! They have to pay a monthly fee just like cable for each addition

    Define cheap? Can you give us a general range of budget you'd like to stay within? Where are you located? What country, currency, etc.?

    How to replace chipset drivers?

    I did this not too long ago and Windows detected everything, installed the new chipset drivers and removed the old stuff.
  5. Internships are different and I did skip over those but yes, for an internship grades are usually needed because it ties to school work and they want to know it's not just someone looking to collect a paycheck or goof off and waste the time of everybody involved. As for the questions it would depend on the job in particular and what they are asking for in the posting so those can go a lot of ways. For a more green individual they would probably keep it higher level, get a feel for how you would problem solve and what skills you do or don't have. A good interview will find a weakness you have and drill down until you can't answer anything else and then go just a bit further before moving on to something else but regardless, if you don't know or aren't sure give your best ANSWER (ie: do NOT guess) or say that it's something you want to look up to make sure. Don't start with I don't know, at least try to give an idea of how you would approach an unknown, and show you can balance self reliance with asking others who might be able to give a better answer. As for pay, never mention it during the interview, don't even think about it. That's always something that can be discussed later after you pass the interview portion.

    Best Place to buy refurb or used servers??

    I've found that a lot of those sites tend to have ebay stores where they sell the same servers for a bit less. I've got a Dell R610 myself, along with an R620, and they are both very nice

    Multiple routers?

    It would get you more coverage and better signal so if you can go for that then it should be worth the extra money.

    Multiple routers?

    I have an AP mounted chest height on a wall and it works well across the house
  9. I have literally NEVER seen a job application where they gave two craps about what grades I got. There are some jobs where I'm sure they might care or if you are fresh out of college with zero resume experience then it might be good to put a GPA or something down but in reality probably 90% of the jobs out there care that you have a degree or education of some sort, period. You could have a bachelors degree in Basket Weaving Mastery for all they care if you can answer the interview questions with thought, honesty and intelligence then you have a better chance of getting hired than someone with "insert specific degree here" who lies in the interview, hums and haws their way through it, and doesn't seem like they care to be there. I'll chat with a couple hiring managers at my work who's reports are mostly programmers and whatnot and see what they say but I have a feeling I already know the answer. A degree isn't as important as being able to apply what you've learned in a real world scenario and give honest answers when you don't know something. Story time I've helped interview about a dozen people for positions where I work and the difference between hiring them and not never even had to do with what degree they had and where it was from. It came down to how they could apply their knowledge, the thought process they used, how well they explained and articulated that process to us (even if the answer was incorrect btw), and showed us that they wanted to learn and grow. Had three people in a single day who interviewed over video calls and none of them got the job because the spent the interview GOOGLING answers to questions on the f-ing call and not admitting when they didn't know something. We can see your eyes move and your hands shuffle on video calls even if you mute the microphone of the computer/phone

    Linus a shill?

    Did you even watch the Cisco video? Really watch it? Or did you see sponsored by and auto default to "shill". There was near ZERO information on the actual products, it was an informational piece about new realms of networking at best and a small showcase at worst. If he went into detail on the actual products, the technologies, and everything that goes into DNA center alone, we would have a 10 part video 30 minutes+ each at a minimum. There are criticisms which can be made about the tech, sure, but to say a few minutes of high level information means he should "rip them a new one", is bullshit.
  11. Because they aren't accounts, they are phishing emails trying to get me to login to give up my info.

    Multiple routers?

    You'll need to do some configuration and setup but it should be pretty straight forward iirc.

    Multiple routers?

    I would go for something like this: https://www.amazon.com/Ubiquiti-Unifi-Ap-AC-Lite-UAPACLITEUS/dp/B015PR20GY I think they come with a power supply but double check since I can't remember

    Multiple routers?

    What's your budget? I would maybe look at something like a Ubiquiti AP depending on how much you're looking to spend and coverage needed.

    Multiple routers?

    That's because you don't use the WAN port, you use the LAN port.
